New Low Level Reached by All
Months. Number of Reasons.
New Orleans, June 19.-Wide de
clines were made by cotton this last
week and prices went to now low
levels for the season in all months
in the contract market and to the
lowest of the season for middling in
the spot department. Liquidation of
long contracts was the main factor
back of the declines and much of this
liquidation was prompted by the near
ness of the first notice day for July
and the fear that it will bring large
tenders. Some selling was due to the
continued unsettled labor conditions in
Great Britain and to the uncertainty
atteding the voting of the proposition
to end the coal strike. Lowest levels
came on Friday when the trading
months were 131 to 138 points under
the close of the preceding week with
July off to 10.51 and October off to
11.28. From the 'highest to the lowest
levels there was a drop of 139 to 149
points and the close showed net loss
es of los to 111 points with July at
10.77. In the net results in the spot
market. middling lost 63 points, clos
ing at 10.75, the lowest price of the
week and the season.
Prices reached in the future mar
ket were the lowest since the early
stages of the World War. The clean
ing out of the long interest in con
tracts was prect:.itated by the con
stant increase in rhe certificated stock
in this market. which gave rise to talk
that July tenders would be very heavy.
At the end of the week the certificated
stock here amounted to 74,578 bales,
the largest certificated stock :n years.
The total stock held here on the w'eek
end was h..211 bales, of whichi it was
estimated that about 75 per cent. was
tenderable cotton. Some ;raders
traced the slumpi that carried the
market off to new low levels !-ack to
the reports on Wednesday from the
cenisis bureau showing that out of
stocks 3,'474.474 bales of cotton hold
in the public warehouses in this coun
try only 117t,23 bales. or 24 poer c-nt
were untend(rable. It was generally

MANNING AND COER
ARE HEARD IN LONDON
Two South Carolinans Make Talks In
the World's Cotton Conference.
Liverpool, England, June 13.-The
point chiefly emphasized at the open
ing of the world cotton conference
here today was that the .present glut
in raw cotton is a temporary condi
tion and that the return to normal
will demand greatly increased produc
In this connection Richard I. Man
ning, former goveror of South Caro
lina, speaking for the American dele
gation, said there was no limit to
America's capacity to supply raw ma
terial provided it was done on a just
and profitable basis. He added that it
was their duty to solve the new eco
nomic problems in the same spirit of
determination and cooperatign which
EWngland and the United States had
shown during the war.
'David Coker, South Carolina, said
there was still lamentable ignorance
of scientific methods of production
among American farmers and educa
tion was badly seeded. The first es
sential, however, was to abolish the
labor conditions prevailing in the
Sout!h, which left the laborer in dire
poverty, and bringing back the prrice
of cotton to a profit level.
