New Tork. Aug. 17. The cotton market
was more active and. after an Initial de
cline, advanced sharply, with last prices
S&36 points net higher. Hales were esti
mated at about 4W.W bales.
The opening was weak at a decline of
ST'lt points in response to easier cables
and continued pressure from local bears.
Bt fhere was a big denitnd. with the
decline form leading Southern interests,
r miller shorts and commission house.
bcIK and the market soon showed a net
gain of IZltn points. During the m'dd!-.
resslon prices, became rather narrow, but
later became firm.
Bullish private crop reports. There was
active realising toward the close, and
some of the local bear operator sold on
blocks of idtsj bales, but the market ab
orled offerings very well and lost only
about 4 or 5 Doints from the best.
Th final tor.e was steady.
Liverpool rallied soon after the local
epering. acd private cables were of a
more bullish average, predicting a renewal
of trade demand.
The weather m-ip showed further rains
at practically all points except Texas,
which continues" dry and hot. and a pri
