it is true that there w - -a
1 drop in cotton quotations on
y last, it is at the same time
that the bears have really "not
to stand upo.., '' as the old
ing is, when it comes to any calm
seientific analysis of the actual
n tile other hand, there is an
rwielming mass of evidence go
to show that while the consump
demand for cotton is going to be
ater than ever, the actual sup
is going to be smaller. than in
rs. When demand is greater than
ply, hither prices are .inevitable.
This is certain. although the bears
are prone to lose sight of the fact.
On Monday last the Census Bu
reau issued a report showing that 7,
612,317 bales, counting round bales as

Mr. E. G. Scales.of Texas, who is a
member of the bull pool which in
eiudes James A. Patten, W. P. Brown
and Frank B Hayne, says that he has
not changed his opinion of the. oottor
market as -a result of the break of
the last few days. Prices , will g
back he says, and ultimately cotton
will go to 20 cents, "and there is
mothing on earth to sfop it,'' he
It is quite certain that the cottor
ifarmers of the South are determinei:
to leave no stone unturned in the ef
fort to reach 20 cents cotton. They
know that they have the game it

shoulder .to shoulder. The following
letter, which has had a wide circula
tion at the South, idicates somnething
of the feeling existing there:
