COTTON PRICES RISE
ON STRONG DEMAND
Ippears thai the Staple Is In for Up
lift Movement In Spitt' of Big Crop.
New York, Jan. 20.?Prices of cot
ton Iiavo risen under the spur of a
big demand for the actual cotton at
home and abroad. The continent has
been a heavy buyer In Liverpool.
British spinners have been calling
freely for cotton and In this country,
Europe has been a large buyer. The
exports have been large. There has
been a rush to K?'t cotton for Janu
ary shipments, export business hav
ing been to some extent held up by
the recent severe weather. The Lan
cashlro mills have resumed work on
full time and cloths have been in
good demand at Manchester. In this
country the tendency of the dry goods
markets is showing gradual improve
ment, none the less certain that it is
rather slow. In New York, though
prices sagged for a time under con
siderable liquidation, Including no lit
tle selling by spot houses, there have
laterly been signs of awakening life
and strength which have confirmed
many In the belief that the low price
of the crop was touched in Decembei
and that henceforth the trend will be
upward, for the reason that the
weight of even a mammoth crop Is off
Europe Takiuur Cotton.
Meantime Europe is taking ever
the lower grades of cotton at the
South with greater readiness, to say
nothing of tho white cotton which
seems none to easy to get. Though
the interior stocks are increasing, ow
lllg to milder weather at the south,
the interior shipments keep pace with
tho Increase. All signs, Jn the estima
tion of many, point to an Insatiable
demand from Europe, where spinners
are doing tt good business and appar
ently consider themselves fortunate to
be aide to lay in supplies at current
prices alter the much higher prices
of recent years.
The labor situation at Fall River
has cleared up, 20,000 textile hands
have returned to work in .Mexico, and
at Lawrence, Mass., efforts have been
abandoned to secure an early settle
ment of the strike.
(?Inning Report Bullish.
The census bureau's total of the gin
ning up to aJnuary 16, of 14,510,000
bales. Is nearly 100.000 bales smaller
than should he expected. (Jn the other
hand, it is still insisted that with
the ginning thus far roughly speak
ing 5,1.,000 bales In excess of the
quantity brought Into sight, it is a
hazardous proceeding to start a bull
campaign, seeing that this cotton may
come on the market with a rush on
any good advance, Also, it is con
tended, recent rains have helped the
soil of the South, and even at cur
rent prices, to say nothing of higher
prices, there is no likelihood of nny
decrease In acreage, bo that with a
soil fortified against drought, and an
other big acreago impending, another
big crop may have to be faced, espec
ially as recent cold weather is said
by a government expert to have dis
posed of the boll weevil for two years
to come, lint the sharp demand for
tie' actual cotton, chiefly from Eu
rope, is the dominant figure, conjoin
ed with an absence of selling pres
