ABOUT $4 A BALE
Market Very Active for Past Six Days
?Review of Conditions.
New York, Aug. 22.--The cottou
market has been very uiuca more ac
tive during the past week, with prices
tselMng up nearly 30 pom's or about
$4 pei bale, from recent low records
on general buying Inspired by a less
favorable view of the coming crop.
The continuation of dry, hot weather
in the southwest .was accompanied by
numerous reports of serious deterior
ation in tho crop outlook both In
Texas and Oklahoma, while scatering
reports of deterioration also came in
from the eastern belt, and, at times
the market seemed nearer a crop scare
than at any other period so far this
season. Probably an idea that the al
most universally favorable view of the
prospective yield prevailing earlier in
the summer had resulted in the forma
tion of a very large short interest con
tributed to the advance and bulls also
argued that too many people were
watting for the new crop movement to
making a buying basis. Reports of
scattering rains or showers in the
southwest checked the upward move
ments around 11.65 for December
contracts, however, and the market
today was nervous and Irregular, with
sellers claiming that neither the ad
vance nor the character of the crop
news had materially stimulated the
demand from the spinners and that
the reduction in the short interest
would render the market much more
sensitive to any real break In the
drouth, or to Incrcnscing new crop
receipts. Bearish views were less
generally and more guardedly ex
pressed than earlier in the month,
however, suggesting that the develop
ments of the week had shaken confi
dence in tile very large < rop view:, to
some extent, and while it was felt that
many depended upon whether the
southwestern droughth was effectual
ly broken, many traders were pre
dicting continued nervousness pend
ing publication of the September bu
reau. This report, which is expected
at noon Sept. li. is now thought likely
to show a considerable deterioration
for the month, although some predict
that actual condition will prove near
ly equal to the September bureau of
Recent expansion in commercial ac
tivity is generally maintained, al
though more or less irregularity is
manifest in reports from the leading
trade centers. The holiday season
tends to restrict current demands, yet
the movement of merchandise continu
es liberal and the low position of
stocks at all points leads to increas
ed preparations for future require
ments. Notwithstanding the deterior
ation in corn, agricultural prospects
are favorable and confidence Is fully
sustained, sentiment responding to!
the improvement in the monetary sit
uation. Enlarged offerings of accom
modation arc noted at a recession in
rat Bi and the forthcoming distribu
tion of Government funds is expected
to prevent any financial stringency
