THE COTTON CROP.
AN ESTIMA7TE MADE BY BY A HIGH
FOREIGN AUTHORITY.
H. 1asch, of Ilavre, France. Gives His
Maximum Figures-lie Predictm a Shott
Crop and Better P*ricee>-IIls Predictions
Heretofore Accurate.
A.p USTA, Ga., Sept. 27.-The Chron
icle of to-day piblislies the following
letter on the cotton crop at the request
of Mr. W. F. Alexander, who says the
writer was nearer right ait year than
any writer abroad, which entitles hi,
opinion to weight now. Here is the
letter:
IIAV1nE, Sept.. 91h, 1893.
Siit- -Though I am perfectly aware
of the impossibility of givinig at so ear
ly a date aiythiig like a prrcise et ti
mate of the yet growing American
crop, I think it quite possible already
now to calclAte on an approximate
estirnate of it, as the coming ionths
never add anything to its conditions,
on the contr 4ry. lieside-s, I d , think
that it is not so important. to the trade
to get later on the precise fig ure of a
crop estimat- as to obtain as early as
possible a maximum ligure. In this
way I stated in my c!rcular of Sr-pt.
10th, 1892, that the calculation then
pointea, for last year's crop on the Bu
reau's screawe and condition figires, to
a crop of 7,219.000 talvs, and on the
Chriniel's acreage to ote of 7,625,000
bales,Ivbii t 'he aenerally adoptrd fig
tires were 7,750,000 to 8.000,0(.0 balt s at
that time I ralliedtu to e first, the bu
rcau's, atid gradually rt duced it as the
sseaon ad-,anced to a production of
6,430000 bale-s, which proves to have
bet-i quite near to the actual product
of the season.
By the same method I calculate to
day as follows: The Bureau's conoi
tion figures ot tho first, four months
(the'mnost important ones) are:
Average of all States. 1893. 1892
June..................85 6 against 859
July...................827 " 869
Augu-I............814 " 82.3
Septembe-r............73.4 " 76.8
Average four months 8U.5 against 82 9
Or a dimunition of 24 per cent. n the
condition of the crop.
The revised acreage of the bureau,
with 16,607,000 acres against its acreage
of last season of 16,000,000 is an increase
of about 3 per cent. (against The Chron
icle's 7 per cent. inci ease of its acreage.)
The Bureau's acreage and condition
combined give, therefore, 0.6 more on
last.year's proauction of 6,200,000 bales
for 1893-94; but taking The Chronicle's
acreage, a crop of 6,485,000 bales as a
maximum.
Another method of calculating the
maximum figure for the crop, as an ut
most polsibilit.y, is the following:
Last season's Texas crop was about
2,000,000 bales, taking off therefrom for
the drought 1;5 per cent. or 300,000 bales,
would leave for this year's Texas crop,
1,700,000 bales, say. All other States
produced in both monster crops-of
9,030,000 and 8,650,000 bales-about 6,
650,000 bales on about 14,800,000 acres
of the Bureau'9 corrected acreage, or
about 2,000,000 more than the present
season's in those States, say for this de
creased acreage at 0.45 of a bale per
acre, which has been the production
per acre of these two monster crops;
00,000 bales less for the present sea
son, or say 5,750,000 bales, making a to
tal possible maximum crop of 7,450,000
bales 1893-94.
Yet, on the face of it, how very un
likely does not seem a production of
0.15 of a bale per acre in those other
states, equal to that of the two monster
crops.
Bearing in mind that the condition
of the plant on the 1st of July was the
lowest, n record, that the stand on the
1st of ,taiy is almost decisive for the
production of the year, I made this
either calculation of the possible maxi
mum merely to show its absurdity.
Yet is it not suflicient for all practical
purposes at this time oif the season to
state that the crop may be bet ween the
above 6,237,000 and thes-' 7,450 000 bales.
Ilowever,now at thme beginning o1 the
crop movement there comes to our he-lp
the safest guide for judging the size
of the crop; this is the receIpts. Of
cours9 some inlluenc'e is due to the
precocity of lateness of the crops, buit
none to the moral inlfluence, (as keep
ing back, etc.,) invented by the fuatutre
exchanges, anti on the w hole an intelli
gent observation of the earliesr, re cempts
affords thesalest guidee for judging the
size of a crop. Evidently the figures ot

as knowrn, (10 not point to a produc-tion

fore, out of the (questionm this se'ason
-that. aside to the inineences of to nmpera
taure, this phenmomenon may be ascribed
yIn the phosph-ate using stat.es, to the
want of the usual iit-muri.ig by the
cotton aeed; that wit hout th s, the
phosphates tatnay have driven the plant
to too fast flowering and truatting; that.
therefore, paeking in these states will
finish et-rlier than usual, and that last
ly, the late tremendlous st"rms in the
Carolinas must, have damaged the rip
-ening cotton fIelds there to a serious
extent.
I may mtention here that for some
time before the new crop began to
move, it was o-onlhdently predicted that
the financial pressure would this year
exercise anm important influence for
hurrying the crop on to market, and
for obiging the South t.o sell at the
best price it could obtain and now
when the receipts are proving surpris
ingly small, that same reason of the
11tiancial crisin in America is made use 0
Df by the same people to explain awav
now the smallness of the receipts; but
produce like cotton is money, resources
and it is safer to acccept facts than to ic
explain tnem away, however ingeni- C
ously. We may take it for granted y
that if there were already heavy quara- W
titles of cotton behind, they would
push forward proportionately heavy 01
receipts. If the receipts are surpris- .
ingly small, it is because the crop is
small and somewhat late, and this is a
surprise to some pe )ple.
The Visible supply of the world is

year, or at the rate of 193,000 bales .
weekly cousumption of the world for j
sieven weeks consumption, against 13 g.
weeks last year. This is not so over- j'
whelm ing a supply.
Last season this suvply di(l not pre- t(
rent an inourtanit movement of sales v

being small there is no hope to get coL
ton at low. r prices, they will -ove in

hole arising fromn the snort deliveries
of co toil in the past, there is n->w
unothi-r one and a bigger one in the
future by the enormous contracts for
lothi allover the worbi tor at least six
months to coie- These may have beenIL
,overed somehow, bu'. prob %bly only to
a small extent,. by contrac.s of futues,
shipments, etc , yet somebody must be
short, for just these c-ntracts, as long
as the actual stulf has no1t beeii
sold by the South, and this is not yet -
the case at all.
Does it not, strike you, then, that cir
M11umstances have been procuring to the
Soutlaern planter a colimniding posi
tion ? Alvances having been mostif
refused to hiul (with prices at 4.1 in
Liverpool), he could only pl.nt a lii

erate production to dispose of, being c
tree 01 debt, he cannot be pressed to
sell, he may choose his own tiLme for it,s
and perhaps dictate his own price to
Eurcpean sellers of clot,h cont racts for
six months ahead, and to tl, Nort,hern 1
mills with no cotton left in them.

Ile said that lii had not heard then or
read them before today. Ite did not
construe that remark as a rebuke to
either house of Congress. If it had
been so intended, it would have been
very unworthy of the President on
such an occasion. It m1ight jtst ais N
well be sipplemented by a statement,
or passiontate views on public ques- at
