botsi the allies and Turkey's wine.
Strong pressure in favor of modera
taim has been exercised at Constanti?

tives have been urged to be patient
before breaking off the negotiations,
?especially as they can lose nothing
by waiting, their position being bet?

The efforts of the powers appears
to be succ??sful on both aide?. This*
unless *ome sudden change develops
at the last moment, Rechnd Pasha

GINNING REPORT AWAITED.
OPINION is THAT IT WILL AF?
FECT THE COTTON MARKET.
Roar* Relieve Last Period Was Heavy
While Rails Continue to Stand for
Light Ciop.
New Orleans, Jan. 5.?This week
the cotton market will probably be
chiefly affected by opinion concerning
the pending report on ginning by the
census bureau. This report will be
important, for it will go a long way
toward confirming bullish or bearish
ideas regarding the correctness of the
government"*' estimate of the total
crop of under 14,000,000 bales. Proba?
bly no report of the season, thus far,
has caused mch wide divergence of
opinion.
As the matter now stands, the bears
are of the belief that the ginning of
this last period, tl\e two weeks which
end December SI, was rather heavy
and much heavier than could possibly
have been were the crop as small as
many built daim it is. Bears started
in with estimate? of over 600,000 bales
ginned for the period, but are now
talking of figure. < a little under 500,
000 bales. Some bullish claims are
that not ever 380,000 bales were
ginned during the period but probably
the average conservative bullish trad?
er thinks that something over 400,
000 bales were turned out. It is safe
to say that a report of 400,000 bales
or under vrould cause a good advance,
unless manipulation should step in,
while a report of 450,000 bales or
over would cause a decline. The
report will be issued Thursday morn?
ing at 9 o'clock, New Orleans time.
Probably considerable liquidation will
be In evidence the first two days of
the week bcause Wednesday is a holi?
day in this market, it being the anni?

_
Will Canvass Field Thoroughly Before
Muking a Beiectloa?Ma> Im? Late
Announcement.
Princeton, N. J., Jan. 5.?President?
elect Wilson tonight made it clear
that nobody in the United States
knew as yet who was going to be in
his cabinet, or wn.U would be the
programme he r.oul I suggest for the
next congress. He declared that he
had not offered a single cabinet port?
folio to any one thus far and had
as yet reached no conclusions as to
plans for the extra session.
Mr. Wilson stated that while he had
canvassed a variety of subjects an? ?
had talked over many names w" O
Democratic leaders, he had not t ^ .
a definite intimation in any AT on
either as to what his selec* or
his course with respect to i elation
would be. He indicated, however,
that he expected the extra session
would not be devoted exclusively to
tariff making and said he would, In a
special message, specify some of the
subjects upon which he would like to
se?j legislation enacted.
The president-elev,t admitted that
he was finding the task of cabinet
making very difficult. He said he
would delay any announcement until
he names his entire cabinet.
"I don't like to make scattered
announcements," he said, "and it may
be that I will not annoulWc the cabi?
net until the last minute. Sometimes
I hear somethlhi about a man whom
1 had not considered that makes me
prick hp my ears and want to know
more about him. The field of choice
j is constantly widening."
tl was suggested to Mr. Wilson that
' if he delayed his announcement until
the last minute some of the men
chosen might find themsselves embar?
rassed for time in winding up their
**0h, 1 probably shall choose men
who are footloose, ? said the gover?
nor, "and then if they should need
time to wind up their affairs, they
could he sworn in on March 4 and
spend a little time o,n it aftrer that."
He indicated that h* Intends to
? -ecupy as mvih of. his t?.ne as possi?
ble between BOW fuul March 4 m can?
vassing the Held, from whic'n he will
pick a oahthet. He said his mind

MEXICO 1H FERMENT.

'Only the Resignation of the Presi?
dent Fan Save Is." Declares One)
Newspaper.
Mexico City, Jan. 5.?Anticipating;
early developments in the relations
between the United States and Mexico,
the keenest interest was shown by
Mexicans in the return here today of
the American ambassador, Henry
Lane Wilson. The ambassador was
besieged Hy reporters at Vera Cruz
and on urival at the capital, but
was v _ amunicative.
Sf of the more sensational news
Pf ?tf print strong criticisms of the
W .
.. .nistration charging incompeten?
ts*
& . One paper published extra late
ast night, an edition with a big cap?
tion reading: "Only the resignation of
the president can save us."
The article set forth that this de?
mand is contained in a note which
Ambassador Wilson will soon de*
liver.
The administration continues to as?
sert that the relations between the
United States and Mexico are friendly.
The senate, however, has asked the
sub-secretary of relations, for a state?
ment, and as to the American-Mexi?
can status.
The sub-secretary has asked for.
time to prepare the statement, for
which, however, he says, there is no
rason.
A request of the executive that the
40,000,000 pesos bond issue recently
authorized by congress be increased
to 100,000,000 pesos, has not yet been
granted.
Skirmishes between the federals and
rebels occur almost daily in several
States, Villages, are raided and towns
sacked. Many ;rbels captured recently
have been summarily executed.
Denial is made that Francisco Car
bajal, president supreme court, has
i been appointed to succeed Manuel
IgCalero as ambassador to th* United
States. It is generally DvlieVW, how?
ever, that he will be named.
