New York Cotton
New York, .July 25.?Pronuonced
weakness developed in the cotton mnr
k?:t tili? morning as a result of decid
edly lower cables, reports of good
rain? in Texas and tin; gravity of the
Austrian-Servian sit nation. The open
ing was 18 to 2(? pofnts'iowor and from
this level the market Bold off a couple j
of points further in the early trade ar
ter which it gradually hardened until
at the eluse it was steady and 13 to IS
points net lower.
The Texas showers furnished quite
a controversy as some private dis
patches' reported rather general rain
fall over that slate and Oklahoma,
while others insisted precipitation
was light. the government fore
cast was for partly cloudy conditions
in the western licit over Sunday a hot
ter feeling took possession of the new
market alter the early break, being?
emphasized later by route foreign buy
ing and a report that Servia would
agree to the Austrian ultimatum un
der protest. The late rally was also
influenced by the report of a Memphis
crop expert who made conditions 79.1
against 78 last month and 81.9 a year
a?o. A southern crop reporting asso
ciation was also rumored to have
made conditions slightly under 7S.i.

New Orleans Cotton
New Orleans. July 2 ?.?Cotton fell
nearly a dollar a bale today in the
early trading on reports from nnof-|

Texas. First prices wore IX to 19
points off avi the market stood at a
net decline throughout the morning,|
although the initial declino was not
widened. Tho close was at a loss of
7 to 8 points.
Another influence against tho mar
ket was the foreign political situation.
This was supposed to have been part-i
ly the cause of the poor Liverpool
market. The weather bureau noted
showers at only eleven out of the fifty.
