has been propounded frequently of

New York Cotton.
New York. Jan. 13. Cotton futures
opened - steady at a decline of 5 to 6
points and sold about 8 to 15 points net
lower during the early trading on liquida
tion and local pressure inspired by rela
tively easy cables and reports that offer
ings of actual were more liberal in Liver
pool. Profit taking by reoent sellers and
a little buying by trade Interests checked
the decline around 12.30 for March and
caused rallies of 3 or 4 points from the
lowest but ther was no improvement on
the general business and the market re
mained more or less unsettled during the
middle of the morning.
Prices eased off later In the morning
with the active months selling about IS
to 17 points net lower. Reports of larger
arrivals here for delivery on New Tork
contract and larger Houston receipts en
couraged bearish, sentiment but the de
cline was again checked by covering
around midday and prices stiffened up a
point or two from the lowest.
The market turned firmer during the
early afternoon on covering and an in
creased Ude demand. Rumors that pre
liminary girning returns indicated a very
light ginning for the first half of Janufry
no doubt con unrated to the rally, which
carried prices some S to 9 points above
the morning's low level.

New York Stocks.
New Tork. Jan. 13. Virtually the whole
list sold off at the epenlng of the stock
market today. The copper shares were
or.ee more the weak feature.- Amalga
mated lost a point and Utah Copper,
Canadian Pacific, Reading and Lehigh
Vallev 3-4.
After a further extension of the open
ing losses the market began to respond
to short coverings and the railroad list
recovered fully.
Bear operators made the most of the
downward trend of copper metal prices
and attacked the copper stocks in which
speculation has been concentrated re
cently. owing to the" opportunities for
trading, afforded by their wide fluctua
tions. Western railroad stocks sagged
slightly but soon broke loose from the
influence of th ecopper group. Coal
shares, particularly Lehigh Valley were
heavy. Bonds were easy.
Further postponement by the supreme
court of the long awaited decision In the
Minnesota rate case was regarded un
favorably and was followed by active
selling for both account. There was
also liquidation in the telephone and tele
graph stocks on reports that an investi

nations. Losses ranged around a point
in moat of the active stocks.
Unrestrained liquidation in the metal
