J COTTON OOODS MAKKRT |
%** **** ** llf?** fr?****-*-*
Tho old year closed on Saturday
very quietly In tho dry goods market,
as both sell us and buyers, left early
in (he day In order to take full ad
vantage <>f the holidays. With tho
opening of January, jobbers will have
considerable in the way of deliver! >s
to t lalo- on standard cotton goods.
While some of the orders they have
on their books have already been
taken care of, there are quite n few
that have not. and between now and
the latter par! of tho month jobbers
will have t.> do considerable in the
way of tilling in. Ginghams, prints,
sheetings and drills will be included
in these wants, and if tho demand
proves up to manufacturers' expecta
tions it Is possible that thera will be
loss heard regarding curtailment by
cotton mills during the early paVt of
tln> year. .Manufacturers closed the
old year with light stocks on hand
at the mills and in commission house:;
here, as they have proceeded very,
conservatively in making up goods,
and in most cases the mills have not
operated, unless they had actual or
ders on their books. Cotton yarns
closed the year in a very quiet con-,
dltion, witli prices on spot yarns rath
er Irregular and buyers sticking to;
their hnild-tO-mouth policy in pur-'
Chasing. It is claimed by spinners
and other prominent authorities in
the market that as long as the buyer
can secure low-priced yarns with
which to meet immediate < 'inurements j
there is not much chain ?? of forward!
contracts being placed et the prices
which spinners are asking. The bur
lap market was very quiet at the close
of the year, as the markets in Calcut
ta and Dundee closed down on Christ
inns Eve ami do not open till this
morning, The lien situation is decid
edly strong as the new year opens, and I
it looks very much as il some buyers
were going to lind themselves badly
in need of goods before January has
progressed very far. -Textile Manufnc- j
