Expectations that the abnormally
cheap quotations current in i!)li would

error, and there is nothing in sight
that promises early relief from the
stagnant conditions again prevailing.
Dry Goods and Woolens.
Extreme low temperature In differ
ent parts ol the country has hampered
general retail distribution of dry
goods, while it has enhanced tho clean
ing Up of stocks of heavy goods. Many
of the largest jobbers of cotton goods
have been in the primary markets
this week and operations while con
servative, have been steady. Lines of
blankets and napped cottons for fall
are being ordered, and prompt deliv

of goods due.
The Cotton Market.
A good deal of nervousness was ap
parent In tho cotton market this week
and fluctuations wero erratic, although
net changes wore not pronounced. At
tho outset tho upward movement re
ceived a setback on vigorous selling
by spot Interests and the South, pres
sure being prompted by the develop
ment of labor troubles in New Eng
land. There was further talk of a
speedy settlement of tho Lancashire
strike but a dollnite adjustment was
not then reached. Arrayed against
these bearish features were continued
liberal sales of the actual staple at
Liverpool, further large exports from
domestic ports and severe weather do
laying tho marketing of the crop in the
bolt. Spinners were also buying fu
tures with some freedom, yet on the
opening day there was not enough
support to prevent a decline of about
tlftay cents a bale. Thereafter quota
tions backed and filled in a puzzling
way, with traders on either side ap
parently reluctant to assume the ini
tiative. This spirit of caution \sas not
suprlsing in view of the conflicting In
fluences in sight, and the operations I
were confined almost wholly to the
so-called professional element. To
ward the middle of the week repot ts
wore circulated that the lockout in
Lancashire had been virtually settled
und that the mills will reopen next
Monday, but these rumors wore re
ceived with some degree of ncoptU ism.

much effect upon sentiment as hereto

at Lawrence, Mass., tended to put a

Numerous arguments in support of
