STEADINESS NOTED
IN COTTON MARKET
Short Session Closes at
Advance .of 27 to SO
Foints.
The cotton market was steady yes
terday. There was enough realizing to
cause some little Irrcgillarlty, but shorts
teemed relatively motVj anxious to oven
up for over the week ehel and the mar
liet closed at a td advance of 27 to 36
points. July waa relatively Arm during
the earlier tradlng-but later tho ad
vance waa ltd by October, which
teemed to be Influenced by apprehen
sion of crop complaints from the East
ern belt. In tome sections the wet
weather has started the growth of
grass and the situation as to labor
makes the trade fearful of damage from
this cause, should tho wet weather con
tinue. Scattering complaints were said
to be already coming- in from certain
sections oris Saturday and there wns
trade buying of new crop months as
well at covering;
The market opened at a decline of 1
to 10 points under realltlng, but the
comparatively light offerings were soon
absorbed. Both Liverpool and New
Orleans were buyers of July, supposed
to be undoing; straddles or covering
(ledges, and the renewed strength of that
position helped the early rally. Later
tho July premium narrowed again, with
the position closing only 210 points
above October, compared with 218 points
at the close on Friday. Closing prices
were within a point or two of the best.
Reports that the conference) of bank
ing and cotton trade Interests held here
during the morning had recommended
the general use of trade acceptances
and that the Government favors the
propostlon were considerably discussed.
In a general way It Is believed that
this plan would facilitate the financing
of the new crop, and that its Influence
would consequently be favorable to
prices.
No change was reported In the "ocean
freight situation, and weekly reviews of
crop prospects were quite as favorable
as our trade had been led to expect by
dally advices. The goods market re
mained firm, with talk of price fixing or
tome other sort of Government control
much In evidence. Uncertainties In this
direction, aa well as the uncertainties
which sttll surround future supplies of
raw material, are leadlnr to conservntlnnS-Rufrain si......i, '
