Edward L. Hanlett, representing I
the cotton firm of McIntyre & Mar. C
shal of New York, who has traveled t
extensively throughout the cotton
growing section, in a letter to hig i
firm from Dallas, Texas, under I
date of Aug. 27, says "that
there will be a loss of 650,
000 bales for Texas, Oklahoma
and Indian Territory, and I am
convinced that when the. loss ip

tire area of 12,000,000 acres which
I have been over, will prove to be
between 900,000 and 1,000,000
bales less than in 1900.01."
The Cotton Crop.
The Cotton Planter's Journal of
Waco, Texas. devoted to the cotton
ginning industry of the South, and
one of the best. journals of its kind
published, after a great deal of inqui
ry, gives its views as to the outcome
of the cotton crop in Texas and
throughout the South. It says :
The Joural does not lay claim to
special prescience or ability to make
accurate estimates of the size of the
cotton crop this year. No matter how
careful the calculations or how intelli
gent, no nmatter how extensive the re
sources or farililies of firms or individ
unrals making estimates. it is inevitably
more or less a matter of gus-ing, aftLer
all. Mr. Henry Neill will corroborate
this statement and so will some who
- have gone as wide of the mark as he.
-\ .t this much we venture to s:ay. and

not buy or sell spots or futures, for it
self or acybody else.
