On the weather report and the lowei
cables liquidation began and the market
dropped. A very bearish acreage report
from the Financial Chronicle, whose esti
mate always has it effect on the market
helped the bearish sentiment. The Chonv
tele placed the acreage at 37,393,117, oi
a reduction from taut year of only l& ol
1 per cent. The general private eatlmati
had placed the reduetioa at from 6 to J
per cent, so that such aa estimate frorc
in authority with a large following ua
doubtedly had its effect. But perhapi
the largest factor was the weather ooa
ditton over the cotton belt.
From the west more rains were ?
ported in Texas and Oklahoma was re
ported fair. The principal drawback ii
the weather in that section was low
temperatures, which were too low foi
