The .f I mines at IJverpwl, the open ing oi the cotton marker this morning was rather disappointing as It showed an advance of only 11 to 12 points when from 15 to 20 would have been no more than a fair response to the charges abroad After the call the market did a II" le better for a time on activo covering which was prompt ed by the cold weather and predic tions for tighter receipts. Rut after a net gain of about lo&lfi jiolnts, the market became less active and roacted to the opnlng figures, rulmgrather firmer than stead; and according to today's cables the members of the I. lveipool cotton exchange estimate the crop at 11,001.000 boles on the average. Their estimate last year wis II. 107.000 bales. So far a larger uiim bor of crop estimates have been made more perhaps than ever gefore and these run from a little below O.aoo.imn to about 11,500,000 with the nvcraar about 10,500,000. These estimates f course are little clue to the crop but they aro an Indication of popular sen timent and as such are to some ox' nt valuable. Speculative attention -s still centered In tho forthcoming gov ernment report pending which we arc to have further irregularities, but comparatively net changes, This was the first December notice day and llttlo contton was tendered and there Is still considerable uncertainty over the position of tho December con tracts.
