elal I-'Iuurea.
New York, Dec. 5. After a night's
reflection the government crop report
did not seem to appeal any less bullish
to the cotton trade. At any rate, the
market opened tirm and ruled very
active and excited. First prices were
at an advance of 7 to 3 points, with
till the months Boiling at new high
record prices for the season on cables
that were even better than due, re
llecting a very bullish interpretation
of the government crop estimate by the
English trade.
Following the call here there was
tremendous realizing, but there was
also tremendous covering and bull sup
port, and fluctuations were so extreme
ly rapid and violent that it was almost
impossible to tell whether the market
was up or dowu from one minute to an
other. One of the active months would be
selling down while another was selling
up, and, taken altogether, It was one
of the most erratic mornings of the sea
son. It seemed for a time after the
opening as though offerings were a lit
tle too heavy for the buying power, but
the market had soon rallied again to
about the opening prices.
Sully' .lull hiii cut Vindicated.
The publication'of the government's
estimate of this year's cotton crop,
showing it to be less than 10,000,000
bales, which was lower than many of
the private estimates, was of course
regarded as a complete vindication of
the consistent attitude that has been
maintained by the bull leaders on the
cotton market during the last few
months and particularly of the judg
ment of D. J. Sully. The government's
estimate placed the crop at 0,002,4:")
bales. Mr. Sully's estimate was O.O'.XS,-
000, or just 25,000 bales more than the
government's figures. Other private
estimates varied between 10,250,000
and ll,0n0,000 bales. The closeness of
Mr. Sully's figures to those of the gov
ernment bureau was therefore consid
ered a rather remarkable feat.

products, have risen so sharply that
Dun's index number on Dec. 1 was
$9S.223 against $07,825 a niontli pre
vious. For the year there is a decline
of about 2 per cent. Manufacturing,
conditions are still irregular, the best
symptom of the week being the steadi
ness of iron and steel. Textile mills
still fiud it difficult to secure prices in
proper ratio to the raw material, the
violent advance in cotton adding to the
embarrassment of spinners, who have
only limited supplies on hand. Build
ing permits in November were smaller
at Philadelphia than last year, al
though for eleven months the compar
ison with 1902 is favorable.
Railway earnings in three weeks of
November were 4.8 per cent larger than
a year previous, and, while this gain is
less than that recently recorded, the
tone of securities has further Improved.
Bank exchanges at New York for the
week were only 13.3 per cent smaller
than a year ago, a much better compar
ison than usual this season. At other
leading cities there was a gain of 4 per
Several encouraging reports are re
ceived regarding the iron and steel sit
uation. In most cases the proposed re
duction in wages has met with no
opposition, and such business as comes
forward is handled without interrup
tion. Another good sign is that the
past week has brought no further re
duction in prices.
Small Wheat Shipments.
Both arrivals and shipments of wheat
make poor comparisons with last year's
figures. Receipts were 8,201,293 bush
els against 9,904,059 a year ago, and
exports, including flour, amounted to
only 3.492.153 bushels against ,340,".'S9
in 1902. Interior arrivals of 2,353,1W
bushels of corn compare with 3,831,040,
aud even Atlantic coast shipments
were only 005,258 bushels against 1,040.
007 a year ago.
Liabilities of commercial failures dur
ing November were smaller than in
the preceding month, and there was
also a better showing as to banking
and other fiduciary suspensions, while
the month made a more satisfactory
exhibit than last July. But In no other
comparison does November appear fa
vorably. Losses were more nuiucrou
and much heavier than In any other
month of recent years or the corre
sponding month in any year of the
past decade. Commercial failures were
1,102 In number and 10.422.309 in
amount against 1.000 defaults for
$9,270,710 in the same month hist year,
an increase of ll.fi per cent In .number
and 77 per cent in amount. The
striking rise in liabilities was due to
the twenty-seven' large failures, which
provided .$7,955,077 of the total de
faulted Indebtedness of the month.
