ENCLISH COTTON SPINNERS
RESOLVE NOT TO PURCHASE
(By Telegraph to Vlrglnlan-PItot.)
Manchester, Eng., Sept. ".?At a
meeting Of the cotton spinners here
to-day It was decided, practically
unanimously, not to purchase Ameri?
can spot cotton during the month of
September. Four-fifths of the em?
ployers in the trade were represented.
It Is anticipated that the decision will
lead to the closing of scores of mills
for several weeks. Only three manu?
facturers opposed the resolution, nnd
their objection was that It was not
strong enough, nnd that It should bind
the trade to stop the consumplon of
COttOn and not merely to stop purchas?
The meeting was private, but It was
ascertained that during the discussion
there was Sharp criticism of the Liv?
erpool speculators, who, it was de?
clared, made the crisis worse by gam?
Eventually the meeting adjourned
until September 21, when the situation
again will be considered.
