COTTON MOVES UP
IN A DOLL MARKET

Chiefly Professional In
Character.

tiBiiii.iv rlulness and yesterday's market

largely professional In character, with
fluctuation confined to a rani of 7 or
I points. The undertone wan steady and
price showed a small net gain for the
St.
Sentiment In Important quartern le
aaai h for ii long pull, aa It ts believed
that ttie South will have to sell Ita
ocumuliition of cotton some time before
the planting season, no matter how Im
pregmihle the financial position of hold
era may he temporarily.
In spit" of thle unfavorable view of
the spot tltmatlOTI aome cotton men who
have .lust IB, turned from the South nay
tht the holders do not seem to care
whether they sell or not. They believe
that tliey will obtain their price later
m in season j ihI they are fortified In
this position by the aid given them by
the bank.
The Manet-catv Guardian In a re
cent lesue conflriis the cabled reports
to the effect that the Swiss Oovernment
li planning a cotton ceniua. This atep
is necessary on ai count of the restric
tions placed by th Allies on Importa
tions of cotton and their evident determi
nation to see that neutral European
orantries fet no more than they need
for their own use. The Ouardtan saya:
"With a view to eetl-natlng the exact
position of the cotton Industry with re
tard to supplies of raw material the
Swiss Oovernment has decided to take
an immeili.ite census of all raw cotton
In the country All cotton, whether held
at the mills or railway or private
warehouse, must be reported, full par
ticulars being given of quality and
quantity If false returns are made
penalties will be Imposed. The census
li telng carried out through the com
jtrrlal department."

INTERSTATE BOARD
BLAMED FOR TIEUP
Railrontl Sold Part of Its Har
bor Boats Here on Ad
vlci of Commissioners.
The traffic sttuaitlon continues to b
the inost lmnortant ami Intersstlnc
subject discussed In the Iron and steel
trade, rrogreas la being made against
ths freight accumulation, but the large
h.1nners scarcely expect full relief In
side of several week, although partial
resumption Is likely on most or the East
ern line within ths neat week or ten
darya. The Pennsylvania system seems
to he In worse straits than the smaller
roads. The former continue Its em
bargo on all classes of freight with ths
except Win of foodstuffs and ooal for public
service utilisation.!!) freight department
nf the New York. N. w Haven and Hart
ford system reported yesterday that
Western roads had raised ths embargo
ago Inst shipments to th New Haven
syeiem. which had been In effect for a
week or more. A already noted, th
New Haven Is prepared to accept ship
ment." from ell point m on connecting lines,
and is nuiklng rapid haodwny In ths
moving of lu. noo cars now licr with
its floating equipment.
It developed yesterday that Western
sh ppers were .consigning Koartern
Insight l way of the Pennsylvania sys
tem to Newark and then transferring to
th l iel aw are. I -sacks wanna and Western
and West Shore Hi es, through which
there has been a iietter prospect of
reaching tidewater. This scheme, how
ever, lias been block,! by the Pennsyl
vania Itailroad, the embargo being
placed further Inland, but th sains
transfer nmy take place at New Bruns
wick. Freight la consigned by shippers
to themselves at the abov points, and
the transfer com only IS per car.
s
The present congestkjn at New , Tork
terminals demonstratea how inadequat
storage space Is In the metropolitan dis
trict. It is said, however, that the Penn
sylvania Itatlrottil Is determined to give
relief as ieedlly us lensslble and to thnt
end has given an order that all export
freight that haa been on curs ten days
In the New York terminals bo unloaded
whatever the cars happen to be. Tbla
has already happened as far back aa
Morrlsvllle. The consensus In railroad
circles now- seems to lie that the Inter
state Cotiiinerc Commission Itself Is
largely responsible for much of ths
freight congestion on the Eastern sea
board. Home time sines), when the com
missioners made an Investigation of rail
road fax-ill ties at New York, they ad
vised trunsiiortatlnn companies to get
rid of at leant half of thalr floating
equipment, as It was entirely unnecre
aary. The New York Central Itailroad
Is aald to have adopted this suggestion
and diaposed of half of lta lighterage
craft. The New York Central la now
trying to buy boate to replace the light
ers sold.
The bridge builders are much encour
aged by reports emanating from the rail
road tau larger contracts for liihhte
work will be placed this winter In time
for sqirlng service. No adequate esti
mate of tonnage to he derived from such
contracts can be given, but especially
large ordera are expected from the Bal
timore, and Ohio and h fair tonnuge
from tin Pennsylvania. The New Haven
also, ss SOOn ns finances will jiermlt, will
go ahead with the Thames Ktver bridge,
as previously noted. This work will call
for the expenditure of about fli.ljOn.
000. The coal roads, more especially the
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
and leehisHi Valley, are constantly In the
market for bridgewotk.
The Southern Railway has placed an
other "jiitrart for liridgework. calling
for about 600 tons of structural steel,
with the Virginia, itridge and Iron Com
pany, and another contract for alum 100

Th export thurlness In wheat during
yesterday's session showed no appreci
able diminution and the sentiment In
opvculstlve quartera became more bull
ish In consequence It was said In con
servative quarters that prloss were being
lifted so rapidly that foreign buyers
would soon weary of the paos, especially
as the font of shipping wheat seemed ex
orbitant and financial conditions In ths
various foreign countries were pre
carious. On the other hand, ths sig
nificance of wheat being among th
cheapest and the most adaptable of food
stuffs is not being lost sight of nor Is
It forgotten that prices havs been regu
lated by the business from day to day,
rather than by the measuring of the
available supplies In all poe.tlons.
The quantity of wheat sold abroad
yesterday wns estimated at close to
1.800, 000 bushels. Hlnce Saturday the
foreign tsklngs of American and Can
adian wheat hays reached almost &.
000,000 bushels, a considerable part of
which was taken at th Oulf. There was
nothing new In th advices from abroad
o explain the eager absorption of wheat
offerings, so the trade concluded that
stocks at foreign points again required
reptenlfditng and that the abssnos of re
lief In the tonnage situation aa applvlng
to Australia and Argent! na was respon
alble for the urgent buying. Wheat of
ferings in Australia and Argentina are
sold to be liberal.

DA VIES WARNS OF MEW
COMPETITION IN TRADE
Points Ont Ileqnirements of
V. 8. Industry to Meet
After War Conditions.
JnsKph B. Davlea, chairman of the
Federal Trade Commission, add 1 1 SO 1
the American Export Manufacturers As
sociation at the Hotel Blltmore yester
day on the urgent requirements of
American Industry to meet the Interna
tional competition which will Inevitably
follow tha close of the Uuropeon war.
Ths reorganisation of Industry, ha said,
when finally established 1n Kurope. will
be Invested with a degree of efficiency
that will command the respect of all
rivals In tha markets of the world for
the reason that an industrial and a
military organisation has bean developed
in tXirope that haa eclipsed anything of
the kind ever seen.
"To speculats oa to the oondltiona
following the war," said Mr. Davlea, "la
idle. But It Is still greater foMy to
assume that In the long future these
lesson derived from these conditions
will not be translated with military ef
fectiveness and discipline Into efflclencUs
and economies of production snd dls
trlbitkin when tl energies pent up tn
the struggle shall be released for In.
lustrlal endeavor. The stimulus of ne-
cessliy will p,. these processes, for
Inton mi, mat bills will have to be paid
through reversing balances of trade,
snd every effort will be made by Uov
ernments Involved to sustain themselves
from destruction.
"When these oondltiona obtain It will
require all of our vision and discipline,
enterprise and conservatism, sagacity
and during to meet them. It will re
quire that our Industries shall be inte
arated and stabilised that the social wall
being of ties workers be sustained: It
will require a large minded Intelligence
and vision In the division of fruits of
Industry between capital and labor."
Tn the evening Mr. Davlea told theh
National Credit Men's Association that
His Federal Trade Conunlaalon la mak
ing a aurvey of trade conditions In
Central and South America, with a
view to having obnoxious conditions
remedied.
