NOW YIELDING REVENUE.
Old Dispensary IluihlingK In Columbia
Now Produce about Three Per Cent
Income on Investment.
The Sinking Fund commission feels
very well satisfied with the way In
which the buildings on west Qervias
street, formerly occupied by the State
dispensary, have been temporally
disposed of, no purchaser having ap
peared at the minimum price fixed by
the general assembly, $75,000. The
arrangement which the commission
now has in force is yielding a revenue
of between 21/& and 3 per cent on
$75,000, whereas, until this arrange
ment witB effected, tbo plant was not
only a dead load, yielding no return
upon the money tied up in it, but
watchmen had to be maintained day
and night for Its protection and high
insurance premiums were being paid
for the same purpose.
The plant comprises four acres of
ground, upon which are located an
Office building, several cottages and a
big warehouse of two stories, contain

indicated remarkable advances in
value. Columbia Record.

THE COTTON MARKET
18 RATHER SLUGGISH
Speculation is Listless with

Cotton Market at Present Is n Languid

Speculation in cotton lust week was
listless and confined for the most
part to professional operators, ir
regularity of prices has been notice
able, but on the whole quotations
have been pretty well sustained, de
spite a certain amount of bearish scn
tlmeht among commission houses
who have been impressed by the con
tinned largeness of the movement of
the crop to market, the sluggishness
of trade and the indifference of the
outside public to the speculation at or
near to the l&.cent level. There has
been a fear. too. that the next ginning
report may be rather bearish, showing
a larger total than most people had
been led to expect. Also the New ,
[York certificated stock continues rap-.
Idly to increase and some regard it as j
a standing menace to the market. Not
a few speculators long of the market
have sold out in disgust owing to the
persistent lassitude of the specula
Now and then stop orders have been
encountered. Liverpool, New Orleans.
Wall street and local traders have
sold. On the other hand, however,
the Liverpool spot sales have been
large enough to indicate that foreign
spinners were buying there with a
certain freedom. Lancashire's trade:
Is active at firm quotations. Greek
interests usually well informed insist
that the East Indian crop is 1.000,000
bales smaller than that of last year.
The Bombay receipts certainly show
a noteworthy reduction thus far this |
season. Spot quotations at the South
have been on the whole quite steady.
Very large spot Interests and spin-I
ners have been among the buyers of
futures here. Spinners have also
been buying futures here on any re
cession. At times the receipts at the
ports have fallen off noticeably. This
was attributed to cold weather, but
there are those who believe that be
fore long the decrease will be at once
permanent and sharp. It Is argued
by not a few that there Is no surplus
of cotton at the South weighing upon
the market. Exports have been lib
eral and they are expected to reach 1
a large total during January. Very
large New York and Texas specula
tive Interests have given support to
!'e market from time to time.
It Is believed by many that trade in
1911 will show considerable improve
ment "over thai of IDtO in conjunction
With ah improvement in general busi
ness, of which they think they see
IJUt for the moment it must be con
fessed thill the cotton market is a
languid affair in which the majority
of people are waiting for something
new to develop. The public Is plainly
loath to embark in aggressive bull
speculation at !?"> cents unless some
thing new shall appear to give them
greater confidence, or until the bulls
demonstrate their ability to put the
price up sharply Ulld keep it up and
advance it to higher and . higher
