E uropean and American Speculators
in League. Prices wIN Adv'ance.
In1 a statement issued in Columbia
Saturday J. Skottiwe Wannamakar,
president of the American Cotton
association, charges that a combine
had been formed by certain 'luropean
and American gamblers, manipulators
and speculators to beat down the pric
es of cotton and to accept the direct
sale of off grade cotton. dIe declared
that reports received by the associa
tion from IEurope and from this cbun
try show the absolute certainty that
the demand far exceeds the supply.
"Investigation made throughout Eu
rope and America," said %Ir. Wanna
maker, "by representatives standing at
the head of tfe"cotton industry brings
to light beyond the shadow of doubt
the fact that we are facing the most
)lIliiskI sittiation that has ever existed
in cotton in the last 60 years. There
Is every indication that combines of
manipulators and manufacturers In
England and America, who were
caught short on the cotton market,
have been formed for the purpose of
beating down prices and primarily for
the specifIc purpose of defeating the
direct sale of low-grade cotton by the
American Cotton association, realiz
ing that the success of this sale neans
the certainty of far higher prices,
which would in turn, cause them fabu
Mr. Wannamaker made piiblic a re
port from a representative of the
American Cotton association in Eng
land, which says in part:
"Following a coiplete resiearch
throughout Europe we are convinced
that the 10nglish manufacturer is reap
ing huge profits. lie is selling his
manufactured product piractically wit.h
out conpetition. A treniendous propor
tion of the manufacturers of Europe
are unable to secure the raw product
and the field Is entirely open to the
English spinners. Interviews and in
vestigations bring to light the fact
that -4durope will import the largest
amount of American cotton ever im
ported at any similar period within
the last G0 years. The E1uropean
spinners are alarmed over the short
age ot the supply of raw cotton and
feel sure that it will be exhausted be
fore their pressing demand ('nn be
supplied. Certain speculators are
Chormously short on commitments of
cotton sold.at far lower prices. Cer
taini manufacturers are also caught on
short sales. They have combined with
certain American and Iuropean spec
ulatora in a desierate effort to beat
prices down, realizing that once the
tirue conditions are-known it will be
1terly iilpossible to prevent colton
from soaring to far higher prices.

chummy musical revue which comes
to the Opera -House on 'Monday, Feb.
16 under the direction of Boyle Wool
folk, with the inimitable Max Bloom
in the leading comedy role, is of the
intimate drawing room type of enter
tainment, which is achieving such in
tense vogue on Broadway today.
Boyle Woolfolk has established a
r jputation .for prc&nt ing only the
bl'ightest and cleanest style of musical
revue. He has realized in many ways
the ideals which prevailed in Ljondon
at the famous Gaiety Theater. Pre
sented In the original scenic setting
which are marvels of taste and beau
tiful design and interpreted by one of
the strongest casts ever taken on
tour, it is little to be wondered at that
"My Sweetie" is taxing the capacity
of the theaters in the cities in which
it is being presented.
