t Estimate of io,66,8i8
or Crop Was Extremely
atch from New Orleans un
of December 4 says that the
-the Cotton exchange was easi
e wildest in its history. The
u of statistics of the departments
griculture, made its annual esti
e of the coton crop, issuing fig
of io,167,8'r8 bales of 5oo pounds
1U1rWas extremely bullish, but its
effect was partly lost in the indigna
tion felt and -expressed by the trade
generally, first over the counting of
the crop in 500-pound bales gross
.weight, instead of net weight, as has
always been the case in previous es
timates, and secondly over the delay
in issuing the report.-. which was
scheduled to come out at i o'clock,
New Orleans time, but which' was- noi
received* tintil 12:35 p. m.
Immediately after reading ,the fig
gures, March, the :most,-active posi
Ition, shot up 142 points, ,slightly,more
than $7 a bale.. This (vas an unpre
cedented advance. Just before the es
- timat wa.s read, March sold at 11.88;
ithe firt sales following the estimate
was at 13 cents, and the next was at
13.30. The ring was crowded 2o deep
with brokers who frantically foughi
to fill buying orders. The volume of
trading was immense. The floor of
the excbange was crowded with sev
eral hundred visitors from all* parts of
the south and their cheering when
1hey knew what the estimate- was, add
ed) to the roar from the ring. The
.,gallery was filled wi4h ladies.
The.delay in issuing the estimate as
well as the use -of grotss bales as meas
ure, hastened profit taking by longs
-and so great was -their selling thai
yithin ;a few minutes after March
Cad toudied 13.30, it was selling at
12.26. The final change for the day
was 63 to 69 points ori the active po
S.sitions, March closing at 12.26 a 12.37
Much figuring was done after th<
'estimate was made.known and it wa
shown that if the estimate had beer

la.;t year, that is, in bales of 5001
pounds net weight, the estimate to
day would have read 9,659,427 bales,
as a full 5 per cent of the amount es
timated today is bagging and ties and
5-per cen-E of the figures returned is
equivalent to 508,391 bales. But even
expressed in gross bales the weight
