New Tork November 24.?There was

dornest:- wheat markets early In the
week. There was a further growth
and spread of beaii?h sentisxent, which
predominated. Sailing was stimulated

There was <ilso h huge increase in oar

this was in some degree m>>leaUing
because it ?a? partly broag.it about
by the adoption of a n? ? system in

The Kslkss Rumors.
Further general selling and bear
pressure wa: also prompted in part by
the so-called peaceful outlo*k in
Southeast-rn Europe. It was. :n

had arrived at an amicable agreement
with the allies respecting; th< division

of more favorable weather in Argen?

free offerings of cheap wheat for for- j
ward shipment from Russia
Late in the week there was a fur- |
ther slight decline, but more especially '
in the nearby deliveries, as many
holders of December are unloading and
replacing with May. Consequently the
May premlcm widened slightly. This
tendency was largely attributed to the
continued heavy receipts at primary
points, and especially In the Northwest,
which tends to discourage buying it
the nearby options. Selling was also
prcmpted by discouraging cables. They
were decidedly disappointing ts con?
servative dealers, who had expected
firmness, if not an advance, in Euro?
pean markets because of Turkey's re- .
Jectlon of the peace terms.
It was the assumption that importers
In Western Europe would become
more anxious to buy in case the war
. ?a? prolonged. European markets
were held down partly l>y the cxper
| tauon of large world's- eh:pmer.ls and
by the brighter crop outiojk In Argen?

I prices are now down to "debatable
ground." la other words, they Incline
to the opinion that the time :s draw?
ing near when receipts will begin to
diir.inU.i. This opinion is based on
the assumption that most needy farm?
ers have mark'-tcd the bulk of their
surplus, while well-tu-do farm-, rs will
be disinclined to accept current bids.
I aaettleineat la ( ere.
In the corn market theTC 'vis been
much irregularity and asset llrmtnt
prices fluctuating in an erratic fashion
as a result of many con.'UctiiiK influ?
ences At limes December contracts
have been strong as compared with
May. This was largely attributed to
the fact that short sellers of Decem?
ber Were inclined to cover on all weak
spota prompted by disappoint.!;- re
? viits the movement fron the inte?
rior having failed to increase as many
had predii ted. Tile fact is farmers
have been surprisingly ti> accept
curr.nt bids. Covering of December
was also stimulated In part by many
reports respecting the large percen- j
tage of moisture in the new corn re- j
It Is feared that only a small percen- j
tage of the receipts In December will
bs dry enough to pass Into the contract
grade. Therefore many speculators I
who covered December were Inclined '?
to sell May contracts. Notwlthstand
lag the large crop, conservative mer- i
chants Incline to the opinion that sup?
plies will not be excessive In Decent- I
ber. In other words, they believe that '
the consumptive demand will be un
usually brisk because stocks of old i
corn and corn products axe so remark- j
ably small. The high prices ruling
for hogs and cattle will doubtless re?
sult in free feeding on the farms. In !
cash markets trade for prompt deliv?
ery has been dull, owing to the meagre
supply of }ld and the comparatively
strong views of holders. j
MARKET SENSITIVE TO
New York. November S4.?The sensi-.
tive point in speculative sentiment
again clear.y disclosed last week by
the response of Use stock market to
developments abroad. Stocks were in?
fluenced by the mid-week reports of
brighter prospects for peace In the
Balkans, and later by Turkey's re?
jection of the peace terms and indi?
cation of strains of the relations of
the powers. Entag.-ments of gvld
for Import marked the reopening of
the normal recourse of the New York
money market for replenishment,
which was Interrupted In September
with the outbreak of the war.
With an enormotis crop surplus in
sight for export and a keen foreign!
demand for manufactured exports as
w?U. a drawing of credits on forelcn I
buyers was a natural step Its gee- I
ventlon ".eft American financial t
markets, put to securities shifts to j
provide resources for the -extraordi?
nary requirements of the active trads ?
and necessitated strict curtailment of'
speculative ventures. The one con?
spicuous field In which the recent j
; Sated in our financial history has not
made a new high record is in the
volume of stock market dealings.

I TENDENCY IN COTTON
Continuation of Renewed General Buying Is
Priuc pal Feature of Market?Conflict
of Trade Opinions.
Neu Vor!;. November II?The pri?-(
dpa! featurs of the trading In the
a#(l9n t?tfft markets of the past
week wan the continuation of renewed
gsaeraJ buying, with nearly all the
lcauing local operators following the
lullish position of the principal spot
latsreets. The broadening speculative
uemarid from these sources, together
with the covering of the heavy short
ltilei'st, gave the market such a
sarong advancing tendency that all
liquidation sales and other offerings,
either of a speculative character from
the bear element feeling for the top;
..r lied King sales against purchases of j
?VOta, were absorbed in such a manner!
.t? to surprise cotton men generally.
In the last two days certain large!
interest, w ho were among the origi* I
nal big bulls and the heaviest buyers!
w hen the price was being depressed]
to the 10 cent basis six weeks ago. i
have unloaded holdings estimated at
over 200,Ovo bales. Vet the market
took this with a reaction of but 20
I oints from the high prices at the
middle of the week, and went up to
new high records yesterday. The rise
from last Saturday's closing quotations'
up to the high of yesterday showed!
maximum advance of S4 points on j
I >< . einher and 74 vn January and U
to it <>n March. May and July deliver?
ies. December contract sold at 12.it!
yeaterday, against lll.HJ for January,
and 12 3-s cents for the later months,
with the market closing firm within
a few points of the highest.
C osutict af Trade Opinions,
An enormous speculative Interest in
both spot cotton and contracts for
future deliveries now exists. In antic!,
patlon of still higher prices. A great
deal of this has r?en predicted on the
assumption, that the crop Is as small
as 13,600.000 bales, and that the world s
spinners' requirements for the year
will call for at least 14.600.000 balsa
On this line of reasoning, tt Is there
fore figured out that cotton Is destined
to go up to 16 cents again during the
spring and summer. This calculation
looks very simple on paper, but the
arguments In the effort to prove them
are very questionable.
In the first place, It Is extremely
doubtful if the total crop will be
under 14,000.000 bales. Subsequent de?
velopments may Indeed indicate the
probability that it will reach the total
of over 14.000.000 bales, as estimated
Ivy such reliable Southern crop ex?
perts In the past as Cordill. of Georgia,
and Soady, of Louisiana and others.
With the total crop still undecided,
and so much uncertainty still sur
rounding the outlook for general busi
! pans, from the fusibility of further
complications In European politico, it
?s considered by experienced cotton
men a* impossible for any authority
on consumption to estimate within a
million buies at this time what the
world's spinners' actual takings may
De. Coiton was cheap at 10 cents per
pound, but at || 1-2 cents it is now1
considered in debatable ground under
all the circumstances now pervaillng.
Plgurlag oa the Crag.
The government's annual estimate
on the size of the crop will be an?
nounced at 2 o'clock on December 12,
and until that time crop estimates
will douotless continue to range from
13.500.0oo bales minimum to the 15.000,
ooO still current. In the meantime,
the census bureau's ginning report, an?
nounced Thursday, is interesting chief?
ly as showing the amount ok cotton
that has actually been counted in pass?
ing through the ginning process. Tiu
estimate by the census bureau of 10,
231.131 bales, as having been ginned
to November 14 compares with 11,- i
313.236 In the record crop of isst year,
and 9,695.609 in the previous largest
crop of 13,800.000 bales, produced in
Isaf, and against 8.780.000 In the 12.
100,000-bale crop of 191. The total
amount of the crop sinned from No?
yces her 1 to November 14 approximat?
ing 1.142,000 bales, was the largest
on record for the period, except dur?
ing the same time in 1906. when l.
655.000 bales were ginned In the first
record crop of over 18.SOO.000 bslea '
If the same amount of cotton is ginned'
from November It to the end of the]
season as the average amount ginned
during that period the past seven
ytars. the total indicated crop would
be 13.812.932 bales, exclusive of Unters.
Adding 400.000 bales to that amount
for Unters, the total Indicated com?
mercial crop would be In excess of
14.21Z.000 bales. The ginning reports
of the census bureau are exclusive of
Unters, but they appear In the move?
ment of the crop later in the season.
Its Reeord-Breahlag Movesseat.
This week's movement of the crop
on the figures of the New Tork Cotton
Exchange are the largest on record In
the hletory of cotton. The amount
brought Into sight from plantations
is placed by this authority at 726.518
bales, against 672,000 last year, thus
making the total amount of the crop j
brought into sight or marketed from \
the beginning of the cotton year on
September l to date, as 6.551.000 bales,
against 6.666.000 the same time last
year, which was then of a record
breaking ? volume.
TRADE IS CONCERNED
WITH AMOUNT BALED
New Orleans. November 24.?This
week the cotton trade will be con?
cerned more than ever with the num?
ber of bales being turned out by the
pins of the South, because the amount
of cotton -ginned. Is the most reliable
pointer to be had regarding the size
ot the crop, and the tage of the crop
is now getting to ibe the big question
In the markets.
Saturday of this week will end the
present ginning period, and Prevent
estimates of the amount turned out
will be eagerly awaited. Preliminary
estimates from such sources may be
received at the week-end. but the more
authoritative estimates will not be
available until next week. The census

Seeetatieae af sympathy far the
report on ginning- will not be leeued
until December 9. and as the cotton
trade now understands it. the annual
crop estimate by the department oi
agriculture will be made on December
12. This pending census report on
ginning will have much to do with the
governments guess on the total crop -
between now and the time of that
guess, small traders will be Inclined
to even up their commitments.
The trade situation will continue to
attract attention because it Is the best
weapon the bulls have, and has re?
sulted In very large spinners takings
last week. The situation among j
American mills Is causing much in- j
terest, it la beginning to be claimed, by i
the long side that domestic mills In
not a few centres are selling more
cloth than they are producing, which ;
means that stocks are being depleted.
The Balkan situation promises to i
assume more importance as the resultj
cf the military activity of Austria '
Any developments of an unfavorable
nature In this direction will be taken
advantage of very quickly by the
Cotton Coeds Review.

consequence of the scarcity of spot
