Now Orleans, Sept. 11.-The price of
cotton moved over a range of nearly
four cents it pound, or $20 a bale last
week, fluctuations -being violent in the
extreme on several sessions and h(eld
in ceck only 'by the rules of the cot
ton exchange, limiting price changes
to 200 points In any one session. On
Wedesday all months -bulged the full
200 1poInts allowed, on the iirst sales
on the opening call, something never
before witnessed. At the highest lev
els of the week prices were 400 Ioiits
over last week's close and at the low
est they were unchanged to 15 poilits
u-p, contpared with the same close. The
range carried the market over 38.5 to
'400 points.
October traded ias high as 21.-19 and
'May as high as 22.10. On the close
October stood at 20.25 and May at
19.15, 'the near m1ioith. being im1uch;
stronger than the distant in the last
couple- of sessions of the week. The
close showed net gains of 135 to 27t
points on the list. In the spot depart
ient middling gained :1.25 points in
'tle net resuilts, cloing at 20.25 aganst
29.25 a year ago.
in the ear'ly sesloins of the week the
tendency of Liverpool to make sensa
tiol advances was the chief sti mu
lating inlitence, but later on the heavy
lains In Texas and the '11ppearane of
a hurricane ii the tropical waters
were the main factors.
On tile closing session pronounced
strength was displayed as the riesult
of the disastrous storni in Texas and
the increasing evidence that the hur
ricane Was moving toward the Yuca
tan channel from whieh locality it
would he the usual menace to thei
cotton region. The storm in Texas
had marked effect on values because
it follcr."'ed several days of local
rains, the effect of which was held to
-be disastrous because of the great
quantity of cotton open In the west.
A great deal of attention was -paid
diuring the week to the 'buying flurries
In the cotton goods markets of the
country and advances in prices there
were reacted favorably on values in
the cotton market. The textile situa
tion -was brought into increased prom
Inence because mIll takings for the
week of American cotton were 232,000
'bales against 141.000 this week last
year, and 16'7,000 two years ago. Tle
Increased exports of yarens from
Great BrItain iwere received very fav
oi'ably. liritishi boai'd of ti'ade re
tiirns showed exports of yarns (Iuring
August of 15,200,000 pottnds against
12,900,000 during the same month last
year. -Reports of a generally betteri
