rlcnltnrat Department, Issues a Clrculai
Austin, Tex., Sept. 13. Commission
er A. J. Ross, of the state agricultural
department, issuod a circular Friday
afternoon in which ho says:
"Although published cotton reports
put Mid present crop of Texas at from
2,000,000 to 2,400,000 bales, I be
ltovo It will bo even less than 1,
500,000, nnd I hazard tho opinion,
based upon official information
from other states, that the
crop in tlie United StateB will not ex
ceed 7,000,000 bales, and In all proba
bility will fall much below that quan
tity. At no time during the last 30
yenrs has the crop of Texas been so
nearly all gathered up to date and the
fact has increased receipts and is mis
leading. The whole crop will probably
bo gathered by October 1. I advise
farmers to market their cotton slowly."

A Larger Demand for Finished
Believed That a General Upward

purl still Rani Strongly this Way '
Number ot Failure Increased.
New Yor.K, Sept. 12. U. G. Dun &
Co., in their weekly review of trade
Better prospects and relief from
monetary anxiety do not yet bring
larger demunds for finished products,
though large buying of pig Iron, wool,
leather, hides, cotton and other mater
ials continue to show a growing belief
that a general upward movement in
prices will conic with the replenish
ment of dealers' stocks this fall. Most
prices are extremely low, so thai
nothing more than an ordinary de
mand would advance them. But bank
failures at New Orleans cause
temporary hesitation, crop roturns in
dicate disappointment in some cotton
and baniu spring wheat states, prices
of corn and oats make It unprofitable
to sell at present, the number of man
ufacturing works and mines in opera
tion does not gain, but rather de
creases, reductions of wages are some
what numerous, occasionally resisted
by strikes, and all these conditions di
minish for a time the buying power of
the people. While many think general
Improvement can not come until the
election has removed political uncer
tainties, others expect soou to see the
result anticipated in trade.
This wcokly output of pig Iron de
creased 20,578 tons in August toV'oO.SOO
tons against 2L7,300 la Novemu"ec, a
shrinkage of 40 per cent. Other
works still have stopped since Septem
ber began. Unsold stocks increased
02.0CS tons in August, exclusive of
those accumulating in tho hands of
great steel companies. Sales of wool
for tho week cover about equaled the
normal consumption for the first
time in several months, not be
cause manufacturers have more work,
for no gain is seen in the time or out
put. The buying is mainly specula
tive, bused on the belief that prices
must advance. No considerable de
crease up Dears in tho enormous stock
of print cloths, although the output
has been reduced about half for two
months, and a fifth of the year's pro
duction remains in the hands of mak
ers, but they have advanced tho price
three-sixteenths during tho week. For
other goods there is a better demand
and manufacturers have advanced
prices becauso of the rising cost of ma
terial, the average for all cottons hav
ing risen G.a per cent, since August 6,
but stocks of many kinds are large.
Tho Financial Chronicle's annual re
port, issued Friday, makes tho last
arop of cotton 7,162,479 bales, the con
sumption north and south 2,005,810,
and the exports 4,712,013 during the
rear. No account of southern mill
stocks is attempted and no estimate is
yet given of the crop now coming for
ward. Accounts of disappointing re
turns in spring wheat states
are numerous, but it is diffi
cult to reeo cilc bhort estimates
with tho heavy marketing at low
prices. Corn is almost wholly out of
danger and the yield is generally ex
pected to be the largest, as tho price
here is the lowest ever known.
Stocks grew steadily stronger till
Thursday, although railroad earnings
are not stimulating, lhe average for
railroad stocks has risen slightly, and

trill Not Ho Stopped by the Hank of II up
WAsmxaTON, Sept. 12. Treasury of
ficials aro not inclined to the belief
that tho action of the Hank of England
in raising the discount rate one-half
per cent will result in prompt cessa
tion in gold imports. Gold is always
paid by the Hank of England on demand
in exchange for the Hank of England
notes, and the only effect on gold impor
tations, it Is Bald, can be tho indircctono
of tightening tho money market. But
with this advance it is thought that
importers in the present condition of
the market can atford to pay tho one
half per cent, and btill make a profit.
Nor are they confined to London for
their supply, as is, shown by tho fact
that a considerable proportion of the
recent importations came from Franco.
Altogether, the ofilcials do not regard
tho situation as at all Ecrious, and con
