New Orleans Cotton
?e?w" ?KLEANB, Jan. 9.-Cotton
advanced sharply today on the week
end session, at the highest standing
24 to 27 points over Thursday's close.
The advance was partly In sympathy
with the rise in other markets yester
day and partly in response to the
heavy export movement and the prom
ise of large clearances In .the near fu
ture. Realising held the advance In
check, although the market preserved
a firm undertone. The close was at
a net gain c" 14 to 19.points.
Exports for the week were much
larger than expected, Hester putting
them at 348,763 bales, making lt the
record week for the season. The bull
ish significance of this figures was
increased by the fact that over twice
as much cotton bi on shipboard in
both New Orleans and Galveston than
a year ago and Ly the total afloat for
Europe of 812,000 bales against 700,

WASHINGTON. Jan.?.-While no
