COTTON EXCHANGE BAD.
ewis W. Parker Denounces the 3feth
ods of New York Body-Has
Argument With Marsh.
The feature of the first day's ses
,on of the American Cotton Manufac
urers' association in Richmond, Va.,
as a heated discussion on Thursday
tween Arthur Marsh, president of
e New York cotton exchange, and
Lewis W. Parker, of Greenville, chair
an of the committee on relations
I cotton exchanges. The occasion
s the report of the committee and
e result was practically an open
- ture of the strained relations
hich have existed for some time be
the association and the ex
Mr. Parker's assertion that the New
York cotton exchange caters to spe
culators rather than to the needs of
legitimate bnsiness, and that the
prices of cotton have been manipu
lated by members of the exchange, to
the great dertiment of both spinners
and producers, was cheered to the
echo by the convention. Mr. Marsh
warmly defended the exchange, point
ing out that it is an association of
merchants trading in cotton, with
rules in the interest of the merchauts
rather than in that of the manufac
turer or the i>roducer.
Sides With Parker.
The convention decided with Mr.
Parker, adopting the report of the
comittee unanimously and continu
ing the committee for further confer
ence with representatives of the ex
changes and with instructions that if
relief is not given it shall seek a
remedy through legislative channels.
The gist of the committee's report
is as follows:
"Manufacturers' associations should
have no fight against cotton ex
changes if those exchanges truly re
flect conditions of spot cotton. On
the contrary, an exchange, if legiti
.mately managed and regulated, and
if the prices ruling thereon are trulyj
representative of spot values, is and
should be of decided advantage to cot
ton manufacturers, as also to produc
ers, but if, on the contrary, the prices
reflected on the exchanges are mere
ly the result of speculation for or
against the value of the commodity,
or if those prices are only reflective
of. the speculative actions of one ele
'ment as against another element,
then the exchange becomes a serious
disadvantage to the mnanufacturei-s
and to producers and ceases to be a
New Orleans Better.
"The two principal exchanges in
the United States are the New Or
leans an-d New York exchanges. Un
~der the rules of the New Orleans ex
change the prices ruling thereon are
in much closer relation to the prices
of spot cotton than as a rule there
are the prices of contr'acts on the
New York cotton exchange.
"By reason of the rules of the New
York cotton exchange, it is seldom
~ that the prices of contracts on that
rexchange are on a parity with spot
- cotton or truly representative of the
price of spot cotton in the community
of production plus the carriage
~charge to market.
4 "At 'times the prices of contracts
are much above the prices of spot
cotton. At other times they are much
Cater to Speculators.
"Your committee is forced to con
clude that a majority of the members
of the New York cotton exchange are
more impressed with the view that it
is to their interest to cater to specula
'tors than to make of their body a
3eg~itimate exchange reflective of the
true value of the commodity in which
"Your committee recommends that
mkis association once more express its
ea:raest hope that the cotton 'exchang
<es, and particularly the New York
exchange, will rectify their rules so
:as to make a true and proper relation
betwen contract prices and spot cot
ton; that if these rules be not so
properly regulated as to make this
relation, that your committee be au
?horized in the name of the associa
ion to present such memorials to the
,. gislative bodies as may lead to a
