Yesterday the price of middling cotton advanced to 14 1 16 cent?, the highest price at which cotton has sold at this season of the year : since soon after the Civil War. The i ; explanation of thi3 high price is to be found in the short crop grown this season, and in nothing else. I The demand for cotton from the j world at large has steadily grown in recent years, until it is now es timated that at least 13,000,000 i j bales are annually needed to meet, the world's consumption. yield of the present season will fall short at least 2,000,000 bales of that B The figure and very nearly 3,000,000 bales of the crop of the preceding year, hence the cotton manufactur ing trade is confronted with a scarcity of raw material such as it has Lot faced in very many years.- j In order to meet requirements the ; mills will have to draw on their re- i serve stocks almost to the last bale in addition to spinning the avail able commercial supply, so that there is every promise that the pres ent commercial year will end with a more complete exhaustion of cot ton stalks than has ever been With cotton at 14 cents known. and over almost at the commence . , ,, ... ment of the season there is nothing . either extraordinart 7 or illogical in 0 the anticipation of 15 cents for mid- I dling cotton, and even a much high- j er figure would seem to be justified ; I later on by the scarcity of supplies, which now seems inevitable. Naturally, the mills of the world cannot consume more raw cotton than is available and short time will have perforce to be resorted to as the season advances. There is, therefore, nothing very alarming | from a price Standpoint in the clos ing down of some Southern mills at the present time, as the cotton they would have consumed will be promptly absorbed by other mills, which will thus be able to work Since there is that much longer, not enough cotton to go around un- ! der normal conditions, the compe tition among the mills will steadily advance prices until a point has been reached where enforced short 1 time must ensue either through the exhaustion of supplies or through the fact that manufactured goods have not advanced with sufficient rapidity to leave a margin of profit between the finished product and the raw material. Just when that point will be reached is a difficult problem to forecast, as there are some mills that can run profitably at figures that would mean bankruptcy to others. It is evident, however, that the maximum has not yet been attained by any means, as the demand for raw cotton for export continues as brisk as ever, notwithstanding that 14 cents has been reached, and there indication that the export de- 1 r is no mand will slacken in the near f u ; ! !
