? THE COTTON MARKET. *
Now York. March 29.?Prices have
advanced under the stimulus of n bin
consumption, strong spot markets, a
delay in crop preparations and buy
ing by big people. Spot interests,
some large Wall street operators at
leust one wing of the Waldorf-Astoria
party have been buying at times.
Memphis and New Orleans operators
have also bought. From parts of the
south come complains that crop pre
parations are over a month late.
Spot markets have been almost uni
formly strong under the pressure of a
good demand. The exports this sea
son are estimated as high as 10,500.
000 bales. In no season of the past
has the total reached even the total
opto the present time this season, j
As for the domestic consumption It
is put as high as 5,250.000 bales. The
exports and domestic consumption
are figured by the bulls as high as
15,750.000 bales out of a crop of 16,
200.000 bales, to say nothing of the
hedges put out against sales of cot
ton for some years ahead. Hence
the bulls think the gigantic crop is no
longer a thing to be dreaded. The
demand for dry goods is increasing
and prices are rising. The Lawrence,
Mass.. strike is over. Labor troubles
in other parts of New England are
expected to be short-lived. The op
eratives* wages have been recently
advanced. Should the strenuous ef
forts being made to settle the English
coal strike prove successful, it will
remove one gread obstacle in the path
of the cotton manufacturing trade.
Hulls think it will oe the signal for a
further advance in raw cotton. They
think that the great activity In the
stock market and the rise in copper
to 15MsC a pound are significant signs
of the times, and that in any expan
sion of trade the cotton Industry is
bound to share. The receipts continue
large. Speculation is sluggish. Some
large Interests seem to be selling on
bulges. Some think, too. that the
consumption is being overestimated
and that there will be a big visible
stock in this country on September 1.
Wall street bulls on Thursday sold
out fully 50.000 bales and they also
sold today despite rams of 1 to 3
inches in the eastern section of the
belt where crop preparations are be
lieved to be especially backward. But
the cotton was well, taken. Big spot
interests are believed to be still bull
ish. The activity of the stock market
' has caused some selling out of cot
ton in order to go Into stocks. A re
newed attack is being made in con
gress on trading in cotton futures.
