COTTON HAMPERED | by min iMay Cotton Passes 13-cent Mark—Bullish Ten dency Prevails Xew Orleans, September 28.—While cot ton flt’ll displayed a tendency to ad vance. today, it showed lees strength than during the last several days- and plainly was (tampered, especially in the after r.ocn, by the piorit taking operations of holders of long contracts. In the early trading prices advanced above yester day’s levels, and at the highest stood at a net gain of 20 to 26 points. The Oc- ! tober option crossed the 12c mark and May nent above 13c. The net change for! the day was an advance to 12 to 15 points. j Around the opening the market was ac- ! live and excited under a heavy demand j inspired by better Liverpool cables than due, warnings that the tropical storm probably would strike the gulf evatt and 1 continued reports of a good spot demand at higher prices in the interior. Prices j moved upward slowly, however, as there i appeared to be a feeling that the ad- 1 vance had been too rapid. In the early trading prices gained about 10 points. The high levels were reached toward noon. After that the ring was quieter, and while the tone was eteady, the mar ket had a tendency to sag, and there plainly was less snap to the buying.

WET WEATHER CAUSE OF RISE IN WHEAT Stopping of Threshing in Northwest Causes Bull ish Feeling Chicago, September 28.—Wet weather that put a atop to threehtng ;n the north west had a good deal to do with bringing about an advance today In the wheat market here. Prlcea cioaed strong, l%® I l5,s to 2c net higher, with December «t 85%c®98%c, and May 9S%®98V The out come In corn varied from %c decline to %®%o gain, and oata %c to %c up. Pro vtatona finished the same as last night at 25c higher. Assertions that threshing had come to a standstill In the Dakotas and Minne sota gave the wheat bulls an advantage almost from the start: The outlook was that because of delays by rain the re ceipts, especially at Minneapolis, for the next few days would be much leas plenti ful than had been expected. As the move ment of the winter crop continued to be disappointing and as cable advices proved adverse to the bears, quotations toon be gan to climb, and at no time thereafter encountered any decided cheek. Shorts were the chief buyers, but commission house purchasing was also noticeable on a broader scale. Liverpool dispatches telling of an ur gent milling demand helped to bring to light the fact that as much as 600.000 bushels of domestic wheat had been sold in the United States yesterday without the transaction receiving any publicity. In this connection It was pointed out that export clearances today were larger than on the corresponding day last year, and that the Increase In the world's avail able supply was only about a quarter as largo as a year ago. Some frost damage and the fear of more tonight had a bullish influence on corn The September option, however, was comparatively weak as a resnlt of month-end liquidation. Oats governed mainly by the action of corn. The Weather was 111 adapted for threshing. Provisions advanced with hogs. The volume of buslnesg.£xpanded, particular ly as to commission house buying of the January deliveries. Future quotations were as follows: Wheat— (Tpen. High. Low. Close. Sept! 1.02 To!

September 28—While still higher prices were reached In the cotton market here today, fluctuations wore more Irregular and after selling at 12.75c. January contracts closed at 12.64c, with the general list steady at a net gain of from 10 to IS point*. The market opened firm at an advance of 12 to 20 points on overnight buying orders and a renewal of bull support, which had the encouragement of relatively Arm cables, bullish overnWht advances from southern spot markets, and appre hensions as to the course of the disturb ance roported In the gu’f. There was a good deal of Liverpool selling here on the differences, while there was also heavy realising and prices soon reacted some 10 to 17 points from the best, but offer ings were well taken at the decline and the marks firms! up again on reports that atorm warnings had been ordered for the Louisiana coast, and the official forecast for unsettled weather In the western belt. This second advance enr rled October up to 12.25c, December to 12.6Sc, and March to 13.04c, or 24 to 27 points above last night's cloning figures, with the relatively firm ruling of the near months suggesting that notices esti mated at from 9000 to 10,000 bales had been readily absorbed at the prevailing differences. Demand seemed to slacken somewhat at the advance, however, and fluctuations during the balance of the day were ex tremely nervous and irregular under more or less general realising and pre dictions of a reaction In advance of the government report* on Saturday. Closing prices showed setbacks of 10 or 12 points from the best. A private report pub lished during tha morning made the con dition of the crop ill.9 per cent, compared with 70.2 per cent last month. Commission house* wore credited with buying very heavily during the da\. will’# some of the older bulls were cred ited with selling freely for profit*. Do mestic spinners were reported to bo buy ing spots a little more freely, but the de mand from that source Is still said to be far below the normal for this season.

Mississippi and Louisiana brought sufficient buying Into the market to open price* at new high levels. Liverpool was a heavy seller again on arbitrage, and there was further realizing, as la to be expected after such an advance aa we have had this week. There appeared to be more of this realiz ing than heretofore, and the market is more nervous today than yesterday, Anal ly selling off In the late afternoon some 10 points from high While the underlying conditions remain bullish, the market shows more of a tendency to halt at this level despite the general expectation that the bureau con dition report on Saturday will be bullish. Today was October notice day, but In view of the premium on the Inter peti tions. which makes It profitable for mer chants to carry cotton, notices were eas ily absorbed, and caused no disturbance in the market. Charles Fairchild & Co,’a Letter New York. September 28.—(Specla1*) The cotton market today soared to new high levels. Karlv liquidation, however, around 12.72c for January caused n quick setback of 15 points or more. Forecast of a tropical storm, with high winds, due to strike local gulf states tonight, stimu lated fresh buying and prices advanced to new heights. Toward the close con siderable local liquidation caused another decline, but It was noticeable that around 12.60c for January buyers were In evi dence in Increasing numbers. With the speculative world cotton mad and with the south steadfastly maintain ing Its Indifferent attitude In the mar keting of spots. It la Improbable that any permanent decline in prices is probable. However, realizing that an advance of $8.60 per bale In a little over a week to some extent discounts a very bullish con dition report by the government on Sat urday next at 11 a. m., and appreciating the fact that a widespread long Interest exists In the market. We are inclined to favor purchases only on declines. On the other hand, It must be considered that an equlnoxlal storm of moderate vio lence, Indications'of an early killing frost, or further successes on the part of the a’ilea are possibilities that Would Increase speculative enthusiasm Intensely In many directions and doubtless bring about sharp advances In prices. We believe cotton Is cheap and will sell materially higher ultimately. But pur chasers must be prepared for the setbacks inoldent to big markets. We still favor purchases of cotton seed oil. We expect to see that market do velop great activity shortly with higher range of prices. CliARUfiS FATRCHILD A CO. Unfortunately Not From Judge. "You say she treats you like a dog?"

Private reports forecasting the Beptem *er condition show a decline in condition rom 2 to 4 points and a report that the National dinners* association's prelimi nary ginning would show 2.9*10,000 ginned »p to September 25. against 3,4**0,000 for he same period last year, were the ten ures of the day in the cotton market. Prices were carried to new high levels or the season, but sagged back on realiz ing sales. The market acted a trifle tired today, and the late afternoon reports 'rom New’ York said the volume of buaf less was smaller and that the market ivns narrower than yesterday. Mitchell and 9chlll made a drive at the market early in the afternoon, with a re sult o? 6 points to their credit, but the market rallied quickly on fresh buying. One of the soundest features of the sit uation Is the strength In spot cotton, which Is really leading the advance. If this continues and farmers do not rush their cotton to market and wl’J sell grad ually, Instead reactions will he of small moment. I have advocated caution over the gin ning report and still believe It to he the part of wisdom to go over with a light load, though If the government fulfills prlvntp expectations, the condition re port should offest a heavy ginning, which r think we will see.

Parents, teachers and the public in general should unite in the effort to break up this DANGEROUS PRACTICE before the maimed and bleeding little form fills a cot in the Hospital. Passengers of proper feeling should try to make the boy FEEL ASHAMED of his act instead of encouraging him to hide and evade the Conductor. If parenfand teacher educate their charges to look upon stealing a ride as ba^ form, dishonest, and a trick to be ashamed of, a sentiment will grow up in the minds of the youngsters that will lead them to avoid the practice.
