Texas This Season Is (!,l v >2,592 —Too

Sections of lli* South.
Atlanta, Ga., July s.—Murphy & Co.’s
estimate of the Texas cotton crop, and re
vised figures for the estimated yield of
the cotton belt for 19C0, says:
In our estimate of the cotton crop, com
puted upon information received between
June 1 and 15, we called attention 10 a
shrinkage in the Texas acreage resulting
from unfavorable weather conditions and
the abandonment of bottom lands; also, to
the indefinte nature of-an estimate for this
state at that lime, owing to a lac k of in
forma ion as to hovv much of those aban
doned areas would 1* re pi amel,or to what
extent wheat stubble lands would be
planted in cotton this season.
Insomuch as the Texas yield is about
one-fourth that of the entire cotton belt,
| and therefore a most important factor in
. any estimate of the crop al large, it was
decided to make a canvass of every county
| in the state, in order to arrive at a cor
■ rection in regard to the present condition
of the cotton crop therein. Therefore, on
June 20 inquiries were mailed to every
county, and to various responsible corre
spondents in ever cot ion center, number
ing in all about sco for the state. From our
j replies, which were prompt, we have dc
i duced the following conclusions, bringing
the conditions up to July 1.
The most striking f aturc of our re
turns is the : ensue.onal shrinkage in acre
age. owing to abandoned lrwUnds and
the impossibility of ccnv- rtmg stubble
fields into cotton cultivation cn account
cf tlie lateness f the season an l
! scarcity of cotton s e l ar.d farm labor.
; That an increase in acreage, of perhaps,
an average of 20 to 25 per nt. over las;
y ar was intei d*V, is i; di aUd by the
percentages cf ir,e as ■ r 1 r and fr in h *
sections ur.aff cte.l by tlie h* avy rains

While Gladewater, in the northeast, re
j ports an Increase in acreage of 10 per

j year, and at present in splendid condi
tion reports an increase of 15 per cent.,
with general eondMions 10 per e nt. bet

I earlier and in perfect condition. Blos-
I som reports reports acreage about the
same as last year, crop earlier and con
! ditions good. Sulphur station, in Bowie
; county, reports the acreage as “three
times as much as l ist year,’’ stand better
! and general conditions fine. Gilmer and
Big Sandy, both in the northeast, report
1 an increase of 25 per cent. Sherman,
1 Wichita Falls and V< rnon. on the north
: ern border, report increase s of 10. 25 and
15 per cent., respectively. Ballinger and
Abilene, in the west, showing increases
of 25 and 15 per cent., respectively, crop
in good condition, while from F.rownville.
j in the south, we have an increase of 50
per cent, in acreage, crop condition splcn
But while these reported increase’s In
acreage are rather abnormal, they are
mainly from the otprr edges of the cry
ton area proper, and are completely lost
in the decreases reported from all over
Central Texas, ranging from 10 to 75 per
cent. Nfarly every corn■■saondent report
ing lands abandoned or laving >ut im
planted on account <>f overflows and late
seasons. The drought that followed the
heavy rain' seems to have prqved very
damaging in many sections where the
bott< m larked or the dry,
hot weather. Thus Caineroa reports:
“Unless it rains soon, I here vill.be noth
ing made in this portion of the state on
bc4tom lands, including the famous Bra
zos.’’ Brvan reports a decrease of 25 per
cent., and says that '‘under most favor
-1 able conditions not more than n t half
cron enn be made." Id orb* Luke r- ports
! a decrease in acreage of 25 per cent., with
I genera! crop conditions 50 per cent, below
last year. Montgomery shows a de
* erras. of 40 per rent, acreage. Clarendon
a decrease o f 50 per rent,. Thompsons a
doorcase of 25 per cent.. While-bore*, and
- crease of 50 per cent.: StlUson, n decrease

125 pc* cent : Salads, n decrease of 30
per rent.; Stud's f': *rc. a door* use of 30
! per cent., and so on, over most of the
I cotton arena. Many correspondents re
port <hat Increases were Intended., but
I that, owing to the heavy rains and un
favorable seasons, decrease? have result- ,
ed g- nerally. There seem? to have been
! little or no stubble lands planted in cot- j
I ton this year.
i On the whole, the rrop average rwo an.)
| a half weeks late, several points repori
j ir.g if os late .os six weeks.
1 As to general conditions, the general
; tenor seems to toe unfavorable at this lime.
I Df our correspondents, only 37 per cent,
report crop in good condition, while 23 per
cent, report crop suffering for rain; 19 per
(Crm. complain seriously of boll and web
worms; and 20 per cent, report crop in
| weeds and generally in bad condition.
’rolling our returns at their face value,
| which have corroborated each other, in
i ,n >uy instances where more than one re
i l‘‘.v was received from the same place, we
; find that the expected increase in acreage
has not only been wiped out, but that u
: decline of 2.4 per cent, has undoubtedly
i occurred. With a decrease in acreage of
I 2.4 per cent, from last year, for Texas,
uc must needs readjust our estimated
, acreage fc*r the cotton belt as per our
i former report, also our figures for the
i total yield of this year’s crop.
Based upon last year’s Texas acreage,
this 2.4 per cent, decline gives us an es
; ■ ■ ■ " i for T. xis of only 6,482.-
' a res for this* year, which reduces the
i iotal acreage estimated for the cotton
1 belt, to 24.595.395 acres, being a net in
crease over last year of 6.17 per cent.,
while indicating a total yield of only 10.-
6;>6,.*13 bales. Since our Inst repeat, there
h s been some complaint of excessive

The building in which the store is lo
cated is a very old one. On one side of
the shop there is an unused chimney, and
jin this, fer *he past ten years, a hive
, of bet s has made its home.
Recently, however, the. bees have be
come restless and perhaps a bit crowded.
Bo: ing their way through a hole in the
wall, they forced an entrance in o the
i down stairs department of ihe store, and
1 to: s veral days past have passed in and
out c f ihe room in a continuous scream,
J singing and buzzing around the heads of
j the curious beholders.
| But the bees finally became a nuisance.

advance of 3-16 cent on all grades of cot
ton at the closing call, at whiefa the mar
ket was steady on sales of a fair lot. There
was a little improvement in the demand,
though it was not sufficient to add much
interest to the situation. There was very
little activity in the New York futures
market, which closed steady at an.advance
of 4 and 10 points.
The turpentine markett closed firm at
43V* cents, with sales of a fair lot. Fac
tors are indifferent about selling at the
present price, preferring to apply receipts
to deliveries, rather than part with their
holdings at quotations. The feature of
the naval stores market tvas the advance
of 5 cents on all grades of rosins, which
was reported at the opening. At the ad
vance it was admitted the market was
very firm, and that conditions point to
a maintenance of present values. The
wholesale markets were steady and un

COTTON Ft H RES.
Tlie Market L“** Activity nt
Rise of 47110 Point*.
New* York, July s.—To-day’s cotton
market was less active than any of late,
with the trade showing evidences of inde
cision. The influences bearing upon een
timent were varied and not easily weigh
ed. The first factor to be considered was
a pronounced advance in the English mar
ket, lK>th spot cotton and future delivery
cotton being affected there by rumors of
continental failures, continued feverish
demand for spot cotton from European*
spinners, and apparent effort on the part
onf prominent o|K?rators to bull the mar
ket and knowledge that the short interest
was yet a formidable feature. Our mar
ket opened steady with July seventeen
t>ointß higher and ether months seven to
eleven points higher on brisk demand from
foreign representatives and nervous buy
ing for the account of local shorts. Before
midday both Liverpool and New York
were affected by sensational political news
from China and a fine weather map. Sel
ling for long and short accounts here and
abroad carried prices off sharply.
Later in the session prices rallied on
light covering by local parties, closing the
market quiet ami steady at a net rise of
four to ten points.

selling, carrying the quotations nearly t .
