collegiate football in the south tomorrow.
Vanderbilt meets Tennessee at Nashville,

Neither Tennessee nor Auburn has met
defeat thus far this season and are strong
contenders for the championship of the

the results of the contests to be doubtful.

Manchester, November 6.—(Via London,
9:45 p. m.)—Lancashire spinners are grat
ified at the first day s business of tha
Liverpool cotton market since the war
began. Trading was hedged about by
many restrictions but spinners believe
he Liverpool Cotton association will re
f move all impediments to general trad
ing as soon as the New York exchange
opens. President Roxbnrg of the Liv
erpool association believes this will oc
cur about November 16.
China is placing orders with Lancashire
spinners which has stimulated the mar
ket and is regarded as the forerunner
of orders from India and general de
mand for cotton goods.
Many spinners express the opinion that
the improvement in the cotton situation
in largely due to Sir George Paish’s ef
forts in the United States. White the
Liverpool market was closed the Lanca
shire spinners had little trouble in buy
ing spot cotton but the opening of the
Chinese trade makes it imperative that
futures be bought to cover orders booked.
The Liverpool Spinners’ association has
fixed 8*£ cents a pound as the minimum
price to protect the trade against load
ing up at a ruinously low price on the
6.000,000 bales of American cotton raised
this year in excess of estimated demands.
