New Orleans, Aug. 7.-The low prices of this last week in the catton market were made on the opening session and the high pricef on the closing sessions. From the lowest to the highest there was a rise of 128 to 146 points. The close was at net gains of 127 to 136 points. At the lowest levels the active months were four points under to five points over the close of the preceding week and at the highest they were 127 to 144 points over. October traded down to 11.64, rose to 13.10 and closed at 13.02. In the spot depart ment prices gained 125 points on middling which closed at 12.25 against 36.75 a year ago. The opening session of the week brought a bulge of over a cent a pound because of the bullish show ing of the government figures on rhe growing crop and much more! favorable annual statistics than ex pected. The advance was kept going by the hot and dry weather in the belt, especially in the western por tions, and complaints that it was causing severe deterioration. Hot winds were complained of at times in the eastern belt, but during the last half of the week large areas east of the Mississippi river received showers. Extremely hot 'weather continued to the end of the week in the west iand the closing session brought official weather returns showing temperatures of 100 and above at many points. Texas re ported temperatures up to -16t de grees and Oklahoma up to '109. Tlle foundation for the week's ad vance was laid by the government's report of 64.7 per ent,' of nornal as .io.f the crop '6n.July 25, and ivas fully three points-nim!er f.eneral expectations. It indicated a crop of but 8,203,000 bales, and if these figures are realized it will mean that the South has grown the smallest crop in 26 seasons. The outstanding feature of the an nual statistics was the carry-over of 9,194,000 bales, which was the larg est carry-over on record, was far under expectation. The trade gen erally looked for at least 9,500,000 bales and there were estimates of around 10,000,000 and a few as high as 10,500,000. The commercial crop was smaller than expected, 11.377, 316 bales against 12,443,180 a year ;n ,o, but was offset by the small con sumption, 10,500,000 bales against 12,670,000 last year. These figures related to-the cotton year ended with July. GRIER ACCEPTS ERSKINE PLACE. The Rev. R. C.
