PAGE EIGHTEEN. THE NEWS SCIMITAS. i p$ L. 1 COTTON MARKETS Edge Appears Off the Bull Side in Cotton, But Pres- . y sure Is Limited. Wednesday Afternoon, Sept. II. Apparently the edg. vu off the bull side In the cotton market today, but buying Jowor Beeroed lew than for sev eral days. Vet withal them was III He wtlllngnoss to. sell nd eenilment was ennfusvd. Tbe iua prevailed In until ciscles that, the bullish features In tho news had been pretty well discounted, but with the bureau reiwrt Just aheml and general exioulWin tlit it will show a low condition and atimulate re duced crop Ideas effort for a lower level were lacking. Hon offerings were from trader who liad profits or from pol people releasing houa. The mat ter Of deriding hlch shall dominate, the ahorlaxe of the crop or the elow- buxlpit bv the spinners, is still unaolved and opinions differ as to whli-h will. Liverpool cnhlrs. were not so sug grstive of. activity aa they were yes terday, and the bulllfh feeling evidently had been well satisfied by the rixn. There waa some reaction toward the close and finals were railed barely ptaady and were from 3 points up to f down. Spots were marked up SI . points, middling to 13.70(1. with salts HMD haled, including MM American. Receipt for the day ware ,20t), all American. I'rlvate cablea brought , lit tie or no news. The weather map showed that the belt fared better during the pant H hour for there waa little or which to complain. Kalnfall waa source and temperatures were not w enough to hurt. Prospects were more favorable, aa there waa nothing to Indicate cIiiuikj from present condition. . But the trade waa disposed to expect a bullish weekly nummary, and It waa not disappointed, although It waa no worse than due and as usual proved barren of resulta as a price factor. It (earned to stiffen ideas among the bulla, but was not any worae than already known and by most people regarded d having been taken into account - The steel strike news waa given at tention, but there was little definite In what came to hand. The situation Ik one full of uncertainties, although (tin Btoek market did not reflect any large concern over ll. The markets were quiet and without special feature, except that activity wua less. The opening wua near the previ ous Close. December being at 11.70c, but in a short while dipped to Jl.Mo when some scattered liquidation took place. Home sunoort. coming from trude Inter ests and others who were bullish, sent the price up to st atic, out again mere was realising. The next dip extended , 1144c. hut ariLln suniinrt was fori b coming and recovery followed to 31.TUU with trading small. The continues to be only moderate activity In the actual and current month shorts are doing most of the business. Ideas vary a to how much October short spot Interest there Is, but New Orleans ship agents reported our in the mornlna that thev had small bookings for October sailings. There rontlnuea evidence that the producers are loath to sell at currant prices and that they are going to make a ngni against lower prices. The foreign ex change market ts slightly better, but Improvement 1s atlll not enough to lend much encouragement. However, the re ported disposition on the part of many laeopto to speculate In the depreciated ' money suggests ths Idea that It Is felt that the worst has been seen and that Improvement w 111 come as Kurope Is able to turn out manufactured products and an tlierii to other countries. Futures closed 10 to 21 points lower; tone, steady. New Orleans closed IT to 32 points lower: tone steady. Hoots were un- changed, middling at 3t.38a and sales were 4,4(2 bales.
