OOTTON — The cotton market waa quiet to-day, Lat
ruled generally steady on covering of ahorts and in sym
pathy with higher cables. Ttie oper.iDg was steuily at an
aCrnace of 9 to 12 points; the market at one time waa
about IS to 17 points net higher, and the clone was
Malty st a net advenoe of 12 to 14 points. Balea for the
day were estimated at 176.000 t«4t». Most of the trading
waj! in tfa*- early session The Initial advr.net was due
to better Liverpool cablta than exrected and the market
worked up to V 25c for January and 0.53 c for Mar^h on
ca\-erUig of ahorts and buying by Liverpool people. Llv- I
crpool waa 6 to » points higher «t the hour of the local
opening, when due to come a »! ade lo>«r, and the bi«r
spot aalee of 14.000 bales furpli.ed one of the day's bull
features. - Private cables said the market was favorably
lnflueixed by the large trade demand, and cables con
tlLuel steady after the local opening, with the close 6 to
12 pants higher. There w*a not much feature to the
business here after midia.7. as the trade had evened up
tor over the holidays, and there waa nothing In the i.«-ws
to Induce fresh commitments. The weather In the Houth
waa not a factor. The Into sight figure* for tbe week fell
a Uttie under eatlmatsa. but had no effect tn a narrow
market, and Southern e:ot markets were um.-ha.nged to
V.o higher. The smaller Into sight than expected led to
predictions for a mere bullish week end visible supply
Statement, bat. with the local market closed until next
Wednesday morning, this waa b&rdly a factor la the
trading. fiOßarintendent King's we«k)y movtment ftgurre

Chicaso, Dec. 21. — Government estimate* of tn*
cereal crops dt2 much to unsettla farther a tra«Sß
already much perplexed. Tha report stated that
the area of oats waa 3.251.0C0 acres more than was
irivon In the previous report Issued sfoee harvest.
That this was not balieved correct was shown by
tho smallness of the decline. Wheat dosed Ho
higher for December and VGV G lower for May. Corn
for December lost %c and for May 14c December
oata lost *4®%0. May }Jc. Prorislons w«re chansed
little at the close from prlees of the day before.
Wheat waa duU. orlces weakentoc tn tha fore
rart of -the vesalon on account of the sharp slump
In oats. On the dip commission houses took most
Of the offerings on resting orders. Tha market
huns inactively th* greater part of the session
around tiie prices with which tha business of the
day opened. December closed at 74?40. compared
with 74ViO yeetertoy. At tha close May waa "Be.
compared with 78Ho the day before.
Corn weakened along with oata, the government's
ttnal estimate making a further addition to what
had previously been regarded as a tremendously
large crop. Selling of a general character devel
oped. i'h*re waa particular pressure oa tho De
cember ftt»m small holders, who seemed to fear an
Increased run of receipts In the n*xt few days.
December corn closed at 4IV». compared with -Co
yesterday. May closed at 43ViC oompared «i;ri
43»;c the day before.
The government report stirred up tha traders In
oats. Selling was the order In the pit for th* first
thirty minutes, but that tha price, under tha clr
cumstances, gava way only to the extent of about
10 t. bushel indicated that tha buying wa* ulso ia
