EXPECT MUCH HIGHER PRICES.
The 1901 boom is expected to mater
ialize shortly after the opening of busi
hees on January 2, 1901, when it is pre
dicted that all previous records will be
broken in the matter of activity and
enhanced values.
All the commodities, if predictions
come true, will participate.
Cotton should lead on account of the
shortness of the present crop, which,
should it reach outside estimates, or
10,250,000 bales, will, with the pre
dicted increase in activity in business
circles, fall short of the world’s requir
ments, estimated at 10,150,000 bales by
Ellison, of Liverpool, who is as apt to
underestimate the world's requirements
as our agricultural department is to
underestimate the season’s yield of cot
ton as it invariably does, or has hereto
fore done on account of not being
thoroughly prepared to give correct
figures in previous seasons as it has
been this season.
The government's figures are gener
ally accepted by the trade as correct,
on account of the thorough manner in
which the cotton belt was canvassed,
and 10,100,000, it is thought, will not
miss the yield very far either way.
The friends of cotton predict much
higher prices for cotton before this
season closes on its statistical position,
and claim there w. 11 be a wild scramble
for the actual article before new cot
ton can be market 3d.
As bearing on ti e statistical position
the following will prove interesting.
The facts and figures are furnished by
one of New York's best posted firms:
“United States exports of cotton for
the twelve months ending August 31st
last, were, in round figures, 9,000,000
bales.
“The total exports for the season
ending August 31, 1899, were in round
figures 7,400,000 or 1,400,000 more than
were the exports for the past season.
“Os course, this was for two reasons:
Prices higher, and the supply 1,750,-
000 bales smaller of American cotton in
1899 than in 1898.
“Exports from September Ist to De
cember 14, 1900, were 2,806,676 bales.
It is fair to presume that the total ex
ports for the present season will equal
those of last year, or 6,000,000 bales.
“In that event exports from Decem
ber 14, 1900, to August 31, 1901, must
be as much as 3,200,000 bales, against
exports from December 14, 1899, to An
gust 31, 1900, of 3,800,000 bales.
“It is the knowledge of the require
ments of Europe, Asia, Africa, Canada
and Mexico for the remaining eight
and one-half months of the present cot
ton season which is making the south
ern spot owner so tenacious of his
holdings.
“On December 14th last year the
stocks of American on the continent
and Liverpool were 403,000 bales
greater than same date this year, not
withstanding excess of exports to De
cember 14th over last year, to same
date, of 528,000 bales. This shows that
our exports have gone to spinners.
“If we take the excess of exports and
add to it the deficit of American m
European stocks, as compared with
last year, it is found that Europe has
taken 931,000 bales in excess of their
taking during the same three and one
half mouths in 1899.
“But even then the cotton spinning
world, outside the United States, will
still require from us nearly 3,125,000
bales during the remainder of this
season.
“There must come into sight from
the 14th instant to August 31 next, 3,-
300)000 bales to make this crop 10,000,-
000 bales.
“Therefore, to give all the other
parts of the world over 3,200,000 bales,
as we must,to equal last year’s exports,
after December 14tb, there would be
left only 1,100,000 bales for domestic
spinners, for the last eight and one
half months of this season.
“Apparently either our own or for-

Which < >f
eign spinners will not get their re
quirements out of this crop, even
though consumption of American cot
ton should only be 10,000,000, or 1,000,-
dOO bales less than last year.
“Then again, as the amount brought
into sight to the 14th instant was 496,-
000 more than to December 24, 1899, it
is seen that all of this excess and 38,-
(XX) more has gone out of the country.
In the meantime, our domestic spin
ners are holding back for cheaper
prices. As smaller receipts, however,
can be anticipated henceforward it ex
plains why the south is so strong in its
expectations of higher values.” —Atlan-
