* THK COTTON >l VHKKT.
New Yorki Oct. 31. After making
new high rocords for tho season, the
cotton market, became nervous ami
unsottlcil during thi past week owing
to more or less general liquidation,
combined with local or Southern
presAure and selling horn against pur
chases in Liverpool, which some have
Attributed lo an idea that a low grade
crop might weigh more heavily;
ng-nlust Now York than the foreign
Woathor and crop news has boon
of a generally bullish, average but
failed to Inspire much fresh buying
above I I cents for Doconibor, and ex
pectations of Increased spol offerings
with clearing weather In tho bolt
probably encouraged much of tho
subsequent selling. On a break of
nearly half i Cent from the recent
high llgu im, however, the trade were
reported to ho buying more freely.
With OlallUs thai interior spot holders
Were ItOl offering their COtt?.h III the
decline, caused rallies during Fri
day's trading. Notwithstanding the
early appearance of killing frost, in
dividual crop views still showed n
w-ir.o difference of opinion. Accord
ing lo a prominent local statistician,
for Instance, the amount of cotton
ginned to October 18 might he taken
os confirming crop \ lews of around
15,000,000 biles, while the definite es
timates published during tho wook
SiaVO ranged from Ll.fiOO.OOO bales to
14,200,000, These figures Include tho
estimates of a lending English statis
tician placing the American crop at
18,870,000 bales, and probable re
quirement; of I 1,725,000 hales. Such
comparisons havo naturally created a
good deal of bullish sentiment as to
the ultimate course of prices, but
there are not a fow Who Claim that
the crop Is being underestimated and
that tho actual consumption of Amer
ican imay fall short, of bullish views,
particularly as the supply of foreign
growths Is Still expected to exceed
Lust season's. These occasional bear
4ali views of the crop, combined with
unsettled conditions in Mexico and
financial troubles In Boinl ay. have
helped to unsettle the market alter
11? recent, big advance, but. according
/to bullish traders. Friday's rally sug
gested that the selling had been more
hi the expectation of temporary spot
weakness than of permanently lower
