Analysis of Supplies and Consumption
Atlanta, Ga., Diec. 12.?The South
has produced t':is year the largest
^>f rwtnn in it.<? history. The
tit'y Ul ?
United States government estimate issued
on the tenth of December, forecasts
the enormous yield of 15,966,00i
bales, exclusive of linters. With inters,
the estimate is 16,600,000.
With this certain arid definite
knowledge of the 1914 crop, we can
now more clearly and accurately :igure
the relation of supplies to consumption
during tr.e 1914-15 cotton
On September 1, 1914, the visible
and invisible supplies of American
cotton brought over from the season
of 1913-14 amounted to 3,353,000
bales, according to tine report of Col.
Henry G. Hester of New Orleans.
Add to this the estimated crop of
1914, amounting to 16,000,000 bales,
and we have a grand total of American
cotton of 19,350,000 bales for the
1 ?14-15 cotton season.
Consumption Greatly Limited.
Exports of cotton up to December
10, have been only one-tthird of the
same period one year ago. From September
1st, to December 10th, exports
have been but 1,400,000 bales, as compared
with exports of 4,200,000 bales
for the same period last year.
American mills have taken only
1,500,000 bales for tfce same time, making
a total of d'oreign and domestic
shipments of just 2,900,000 bales, while
during the same period ginnings ^ave
exceeded 13.000,000 bales.
According to these figures, the probable
consumption of American cotton
will rot exceed 10,000,000 bales for
the season 1914-15, leaving on hand
and unconsumed on September 1, 1915,
a surplus of at least y,uuu,uuu Daies 01
Who WHI Hold Surplus?
Who will hold this surplus?-the cotton
growers or the speculative cotton
trade and spinners. Tf the growers
part witfo' the surplus at present low
prices, it will give the buyers and consumers
an enormous reserve supply
of raw cotton whicf can and will be
used to hold down cotton values for
several years to come.
One-fifth of this surplus subscribed
by the growers to the capital stock of
