Atlanta, Octohor 21.-A considerable part of tho now crop found its way into tho markets so long as prices remained abovo lt) cents, but since tho drop holow 10 cents per pound, nearly three weok's ago, the producers throughout tho entire coil M heit have called a halt and wo now find tho spot situation absolutely tied up. Tho port receipts have boon heavy during that timo, but this has V, J'.-en duo to tho hurrying forward of shipments that wore purchased >rior to tho recent depression. Very littlo cot ton is now hoing olYored for salo any- I whoro, and what is being sold is cotton that is largely in the hands of negro tenants who pay but little attontion to | tho prico or tho course of the market. ! Merchants, bankers, guano dealers and others have joined with tho planters in resisting a markot which nt tho present timo is too low and which has boon do piesse-! by manipulation in speculation. There can bo but one mothod for ad vancing tho spot mai kel, and that is for ho producers to stand brm and refuse to part with their cotton until prices do | reach satisfactory ligures. Tho Southern Cotton Association, through its general executive committee, in session at Asho villo, N. C., September (1. after a full aud thorough investigation of tho situation from ovory standpoint, decided that ll cents por pound was a reasonable mini mum prico for this crop. This prico can bo secured by tho farmors if thoy will stand firmly for it. Tho market for tho next two months will bo regulated according to tho extent of tho cotton that is rushod upon thc buyors by tho producors. It is now being urgod from many sections that tho people who aro ahlo to do so get together in each county and raiso funds sufficient to buy n all tho cotton that is forced to salo nd stine it for higher prices.
