Planters, cotton factors and busi
ness men generally look to the press,
says the Augusta Constitutionalist,
for information in regard to the grow
ing crop, the demands of spinners and
the probable future prien of the sta
ple. While exercising diligence in
collating and publishing all availablo
information in regard to this impor
tant interest, we have always a reluc
tance in tendering advice as to hold
ing or selling. Two years ago we did
advise our planters to make quick
sales, and subsequent events proved
our views to be right. The market
declined rapidly and persistently
from about 29 cents to 17 cents.
Now, with all the statistics before
us as to stock on hand, weekly con
sumption and probable amount of the
present crop, we feel confident that if
planters do not rush to market, prices
will advance instead of declining.
The fact that at this time of the year,
when new cotton is being marketed,
Liverpool quotations have been
steadily, although slowly advancing,
is very significant. Unless a foreign
war should occur this fall on the
Eastern question, which is very im
probable, present prices must be litm
ly sustained. We endorse the views
of our correspondent, "W illoughby,"
expressed in his letter last week, that
