Speculators Awaiting the Turn of the
Weather In Texas Before Planning
With the last censu? report of the
.season out of the way and the..size of
the commercial crop a matter of no
great dispute, the cotton trade is now
squarely facing the question of wheth
er there is to be a campaign for a
rise in the spring and summer months
For some lime past there have
been many rumort, that strong bull
clique is controlling the May delivery
III the Now Orleans market but this
story has been laughed down.
There has been much transfer!tug
of the long interest from January to
.March. With January liquidated thes<
two mouths will command attention
and It ought not to be hard to detect
signs of any unusual trading In elth
The weather man now will come in
for more attention than has been
paid It for several months. Should
rain fall In the West the bears will
try to make it a feature of general
interest in an attempt to rob the sta
tistical position of scute or the atten
tion being paid to it. According to the
market there is a large area of impor
taut cotton producing countey in Tex
as and Oklahoma thai has not re
ceived anything like an adequate witt
ier rainfall. although light r; ins
have been reported here and there
in both States for some time.
Neu Crop la "aimer.
This, it is claimed, has caused
backward preparations for tlu new
Crop In some sections and is against
the success of the next crop since It
is the general Idea that winter reins
are conserved In fhe soii while spring
and summe?' rains ere quickly evap
porated. The claim of the bulls is
that unless rains fall soon the cotton
plant ov ?r a large area will suffer
for moisture during every dry spell
of the season Unless rains fall soon
in a general way. the droughty condi
tions in the West will he a market
feature of great Importance.
The statistics of the coining week
will be eargerly watched for. stocks
of cotton will command much atten
tion and should they strike as they
have this last week luv istment buy
ing will be stimulated.

tlon from the ofilce of governor as to
his attitude toward the department of

pointments at the pleasure of the com
missioner of ngrlcultura and It is tak
en for granted that should another
man be appointed to the position that
he would name supporters of the ad
ministration as his assistants.
The department of agriculture was
created by Commissioner Watson. He
has built up one of the strongest de
