however, was handed to the news

its receipt by me and without giving
me the slightest opportunity to make
any reply in the same issue in which

to what motive actuated you in hand

it to the publie and any fa>. minded

(By Aworlatrd Pirn.)
NEW YORK. Feb.. 5.?Cotton lias
burn more or' less Irregular during the
past week, but the undertone has been
generally steady, and pri?es have
shown an advancing tendency with
Octol er contracts selling up to 9.40
or ni out 27 points above the low level
reached at the end of last month.
Reactions occurred during today's
ses;,Ion and sentiment at the close of
the week was rather nervous and un
settled, owing to apprehensions thnt
recent war developments might result
ir chocking the export movement.
Advances earlier In the week re
flected an improved trade demand, ac
companied by reports of increasing
actlylty. among the domestic mills,
while there also was rehuying by old
longs or covering by shorts. The
failure of the news to indicate In
creased pressure of spot cotton, or of
Southern hedge selling . to develop
bcro on any Important scale, was con
sidered a disappointment from a bear
ish or reactionary standpoint.
The factors most emphasised
around the ring, however, were snot
houses buying, continued firmness of
i Southern spot markets, and failure of
I recent advances to attract any large
shipments of cotton here for contract
1 delivery. Relative firmness in Liver
pool apparently created little buying
bower here, owing to expectations of
li wider difference between the two
markets, partly as a result of restric
tions on arbitrage business from this'
side after the new cotton futures ^bll^
goes into effect.
Reports that Russian and Gorman
! buyers were withdrawing from the.
! market probably encouraged some of
the selling on advances. ?
