" ^?RUSANS, Jan. 23.-After a
short-lived advanced soon after the
opening today the cotton. market fell
off and. continued to sag until the
close, when lt was 9 to 12 pointa un
der yesterday's last prices. Trading
was active on the opening and prices
went 8 to ll points over yesterday's
close, bot a qu|ck break followed the
Liverpool's firmness caused the int- j
tlon rise while liquidation of long
cotton and frcBh short Belling, based
on- tho large amount of cotton ginned
op to th: middle ot the month, was
responsible for the break. For a
short week-end BOSS lon a large volume
ot business was done.
.Private English-advices ascribed the
advance in Liverpool partly to mani
pulation and partly to better reports
The -census figures, showing about
400,000 bales more ginned to January
16 than in the ,big crop, rear of 1911,
revived talk of a record'erop and this
talk appeared to have a marked elf'jct

New York Cotton
(By Aftoeisted Pr**?.)
NEW YORK/Jan, ?3.-An opening
advance was followed by avery sharp j
break In cotton today ureter, a con
tinuation ot general realizing or liq
uidation with the close easy at a net
decline of ll to 18 points.
After the past two or. three days i
of relative weakness and yesterday
sharp .break in the local 'market,
Liverpool chowed a strength this
morning which surprised local trad
ers! and first prices were .from 9 to
18 points net higher. Private cables
attributed the advance abroad to a
better Manchester business and buy
ing orders from the continent, while
they alua stated cotton would not be
declared contraband. '
The oJTect of the cables on ocal sen- j
|tlment vas modified, however, by a
bearish view of the census returns
which ahowed a record breaking gin
ning both for the last period and for
tho.total January 18, and also by the
'comparatively Btnall splnnera' taking*
of American coUoa for the Week.
Yesterday's predictions ot a diminish
ing export demand and of increased
southern offeringes were renewed and ;
the market soon became very weak
and unsealed. Later the selling be
came moro general and aggressive as
prices worked lower, and closing
figures were at tho low point of the
day. July contracts sold" at 8.90 or
23 points below the high leve ot the
morning sod nearly 82 below the high
