day were reported of about PS. OOO ba«s. Havre -was
about risht during: h<r *«rly pension, when prloes were

COTTON — cottca market wag easier to-day and
made new l<yw records for the rassoa. under local bear
pr»ssur» and scattering liquidation. The < loss was steady,
i-ut at a net advance of 7014 points. Bales for th« day
reru estimated at 2fO,(.iO<> bales. The market opined
steady at a d»-01136 of 1 point to an advan'-« of 2 points,
which was at*:ut as due on the cables. Right after the
call there was heavy tolling by two or three of th« local
traders, which looked like a preconcerted V>ea.r raid, and
prices eased oft readily in th« absence of bull l«-ad<*rshlp
or of general business. Them was a little buying by
spot people on a ecalodown and covering of shorts In a
rooa>rato way, but th«T« was ro buying power of con
tequenoe. and virhlJe th»ir<; were oat or two plleht reactions
the low point was reached In the late trading, and the
closo was only a point or two up from th« lowest on the
■active months. January wgs relatively w.-ak during the
day, and there seemed to be fear that cotton would be
tendered to a considerable amount on th«se ormtracts.
Tt« lo°al stock has been gradually but Eteadlly Increasing
of lat", nod as January has not been a good carrying
chirps under March It is rupposwl that the intention is
to deliver on the wfhter month*". Part of the selling
during the day may have beca baned on the Ids* that the
ce!;FU3 report to 1<« published on Thursday will mako a
' bearish lowing. Iv<ca! «stimatea as to the probable
I v .owlrir of this report Still rang" from about lO.kOft.OOO
!to 10.iWyy.ofiO bales. Some private reports are exacted
during to-day's trading which may cauee son» change in
the. figures expecttd. Private advices from the South In
dicated continued firmness In interior spot markets, but
the movement continues full.
The ranir* of contract prices in the local market to-day
