Employment Decreased 2.9 Per Cent
iI Julune Over May, Survey Shows.
Washington, July 7.-A decrease in
eilioyment of -2.9 per cent during
June as compared with May, Is indi
ctted .by a survey made by the depart
ment of labor of reports from 1,428
firms employin-g normally 1,600,000
persons. The decrease since January
in these establishnents situated In 65
principal industrial centers has been
6.2 per cent, a statement issue(d today
said.
All industries reported decreased
employment except those engaged in
the manufacture of food products,
textiles, leather, liquors and -bever
ages, stone, clay, glass and tobacco.
"Detailed examination of the pres
ent returns indicates clearly the fun
daiental causes of the protracted in
dustrial depression and the mounting
tide of unemployment," the statement
(leclared. "Continued unsatisfactory
conditions of transportation, with
freight rates in many cases consid
ered almost prohibitive; lack of any
thing like a normal foreign market:
the present low value of farm produce,
stagnation fin iron and steel; high
costs of construction and the general
dulnhess of the retail trade stand out
prominently as leading factors in tie
situtation."
While there is an almost ntation -
wide housin g shortage, the statement
sad, the only resutnnption of buildinug
o!ierations noted has been onl a re
stricted scale.
"Industry generally is optimistic,"
the survey continues, "and while the
!ikelihood of a duull summer in almost
all lineos is fully recognized, the ten
dency is to count on ilprovemnent by
U01 and a healthy though n'ot spec
tacila r business revival by the spring
of 1922."

BETTER TONE CAUSES.
RISE IN COTTON
Staple Enses OIY From Best When
Stocks Turn Easier in Afternoon.
New York, July 7.-An early ad
vance in today's cotton market seemed
largely the result of the better tone
reported in iWall street, and when
stocks turned easier during the after
noon, cotton also eased off from the
best. October contracts, which had
sold up to 12.76, closed at 12.65 with
the general lisit closing barely steady
although last prices were 13 to 18
points net higher.
The market opened steady at an ad
vance of 6 to 9 'points in response to
relatively firm Liverpool cables, re
ports of an improving spot demand in
the market there, al( private cables
claiming that 'Lancashire was showing
more interest in new crop shipments.
The south sold a little cotton at the
opening and -there was scattered
realizing which may have been pro
moted by the favorable weather map.
These offerings were readily absorbed,
however, ain( the market showed con
siderable strength diring the middle
of the (lay on a scatterin'g demand
from the trade, Wall street and local
operators. The feeling appeared to be
that the better tone roported in the
early stock market would lead to Wall
street buying of cotton on a more ac
tive scale or the covering of shoit ae
coutits. jily sold up to 12.0.1 and Dv
cember to 13.25 or 2.1 to 28 points
set higher, but the advance was then
checked by scattered realizing and
there was liq(uidation -by early bu'er.,
in the late trading. Reports of an in
proved( demand were received from
'astern belt sections, and there Was
talk of ai firmer spot basis, while very
little southern selling was noted
around the ring after the early offer
Ings had been absorbed. There was
reports of increasing curtailment
among eastern yarn mills owing to a
contilued poor- deind, but early ad
vices indicated rather a better toie in
'.oodls with some export I inquiry. The
bulk of the late selling was attribiut
ed to tile early buyers who were siip
posed to be disa1piointed] by the fail
I ire of Wall street buying to develolp
as expected. Kxports today 6,891
bales. making 5,50,878 so far this
season. Port receipts 12,752. 'nited
States port stocks 1,520,899.
