Tuesday afternoon, July Firmness In Liverpool, continued strong markets for cotton goods and a feeling that the Hermans are get ting ready to ratify the peace terms shortly contributed to the strength In the market during the early part of to day s session, which sent quotations to a level about to points over the pre lous close. More favorable weather in the belt, easiness in sterling exchange and francs and lack of snap In the spot department helped encourage some profit taking snd hesitancy about buy ing The result was that the market was nervous and erratic and fluctua tions were difficult to follow. Liverpool was due to come down about ti to 19 points, but Instead dM a lot better It was thought one of the causes w-as the information tluit tin mat.- were making progress toward ratifying iteace. which naturally would Kttmulat" business, while another fac tor was that progress was reported toward adjusting labor troubles and getting the mills started again Finals were steady and the list from 10 to 5 points to trie good.

First prices on this side were steady and higher, responding to good cables and to continuation nf bullish feeling predicted on the crop outlook In the belt There was a good map. for rains were scattered and pwhapfl did as much good as harm, while indications were favorable. Advices from some directions were telling of impro etnent, although all of them confirm the seri ous dainaice alreAdv done and ihe need of a prolonged spell of good went tier. October started the day at 3.160. tip 3 imiIius. and after touching tlitee points higher, sagged on some little profit taking. The easiness In sterling was against extmrt business, hut later there came r.dvli-s telling of plenty of essels. which encouraged expectations of big exports Still later In the day It was announced that rates from New- Orleans had been reduced II, 10 for Liverpool, which will heln stimulate business. October dipped to 13 16 and then shot up to 33 s undei the. Impetus of amie huvlng for foreign account, but after Liverpool dosed the list Micced again and the option sold as low- as 33.34 and then steAdte.l again. There was not much incentive to buvlntr at the moment and some predicted that the weekly summaty tomorrow would make a favorable, showing. ,ews ironi the spot department was not very plentiful, hut ihe reduced ocean rates will heln offset the decline In exchange and thus Induce huvlng for export The demand for the actual ul the moment Is not sufficient to stlm ulale bullish feeling, as the foreigners seem disposed to buy their raw ma terial supplies only as they need them Many observers fear I here w ill ho dis appointment nt the demand for the antra countrlea due to the axnactad difficulties in arranging credits.

The continued record-breaking advances in the hog market tended to stimulate established sentiment and so, too. did scantiness ot arrivals here. Open prices, which ranged from c off to tc up, with September (1,11 to II .89 s and December 11. SI5, to ll.Clle, were followed by a temporary sag and them by moderate gains all around. Subsequently, buying on the purt of commission houses with eastern con nections more than offset sales to re alise profits.
