WIDE DECLINES
IN COTTON
Bureau Figures Under Expec
tations, But Shorts Raided
Spots Lost More Ground.
Memphis, Sept. 1.—The government
report was scheduled to furnish the
cotton market with a lot of thrills yes
terday. In that there was disappoint
ment, but the hears, itching for ad
venture, were not to lie denied. They
jumped on the market anyway, and
lieat it down to the full limit of 200
points allowed under exchange rules
for one day's trading.
The government estimate of 07.5 jier
cent of a normal, indicating a crop of
12.7N3.000 bales, was said to be bullish
because it was lower than the average
expectation. The report, however,
showed an increase of 204,000 bales in
the indicated yield comi>ared with July
25th.
To moset observers in the fields im
provement in the cotton crop since July
25 has l>een Imperceptible, and while an
increase of tlie government's estimate
juay lie warranted by the prospect, the
necessity would seem to arise * more
from under estimating the end-July
condition rather than from any im
provement in tin* crop prospect. v
Contract values moved up immedi
ately after publication of the govern
ment's fig art's, but slid off after a
brief show of steadiness.
Stagnation in cotton goods markets
continues to Ik* the source of the most
important weakness in contract values.
While bears may feel it necessary to
offer daily excuses, they might save
themselves trouble until they have
something more plausible than recent
explanations to offer.
Spinners an* not likely to re-enter
the market in an important way so
long as spot cotton values point down
ward. tin* goods business bangs fire
and crop reports show enlarging pros
pect s.
Houston and Dallas, Texas, now do
ing about all the spot business being
transacted, showed further declines
yesterday. Houston sold 3.N04 bales,
but quotations wen* off list points, with
basis middling at 27.75c. (Juotatiohs
at Dallas were lowered 105 points, mid
dling lM*ing quoted at 2d.75c on sales
of 1.1144 bales.
New York futures closed weak, at
about the lowest for the day. net Uni
to 102 points down compared with
Tuesday's close.
New Orleans closed easy at decline
of ltll to loti points.
Memphis quotations were 50 points
lower, with basis middling quoted at
Sales were only 2<m bales.

and enormously increase the produc
tion of food ami feed crops.
Fifth—To form an export, corpora
tion for the purpose of marketing cot
ton. especially the lower grades, into
