New Orleans Cotton?
NEW ORLEANS, Feb., 15.-While
prices were depressed In the early
trading In cotton today they soon
made a sharp recovery und tn the ear
ly afternoon were 3 to 4 puints over
last week's final figures. The close
was at a net gain of 2 ta 3 point <. At
lowest thc market was s to 9 points
under Saturday's close.
Selling in the morning was stimu
lated by the census bureau report on
American consumption during Jan
uary of 468,877 hales. Bears con
sidered this was unfavorable because
it was well under the consumption
"or tlie corresponding month last
In tile morning considerable short
.selling was done - but when shorts
tried to cover at a profit they found
few contracts f r sale and the market

?fturnoon offerings were scanty and
the market had a linn undertone. The
holiday tomorrow was against fresh
trading in any volume. ?

New York Cotton.
NEW YORK. Feb. 16.-Cotton was
mote or less unsettled today but
prices rallied after an early decline
and cloded firm ut a net less of 4
ponita to an advance of 5 points.
March was 4 points lower, while later
deliveries were generally 2 to 5 points
The market opened steady at a de
cline of 5 to 8 points in sympathy
with relatively easy cables and active
months sold about 7 to 6 points net
lower during the early trading. Con
tinued nervousness over the shipping
situation and apprehensions of a
cheri* in the export movement, com
bired with predictions of Increased
southern spot offerings with the ap
proach of the n." ,rop planting sea
son, appeared co be chiefly respon
sible for the decline.
There was a good deal of buying on
a stales down, however, and this sup
port checked the decline around 9.03
for October and trading later became
leBs active with price? working up
ward on a corcrlng and bull support.
The close was at practically the best
point of the day. ,
The census figures on supply and
distribution appeared to create no
fresh sentiment of consequence, while
the rally was aided by the relatively
heavy spinners' taking for last week,
and the continued free export move
