POPLAR FOR PAPER PILP.
Thl Tree In Found In Yirjflnln,
North Carolina, Tninriife anti
From the Taper Mill.
The growth of the pulp and paper mak
ing industry in the United States has
heretofore been largely in the New Eng
land, Middle and Northwestern states. It
is po sible that the next considerable de
velopment cf this industry will be in the
South, and especially In ihe Appalachian
mountain region, where are found two
great essentials for cheap pa|> rmak ng—
plentiful supplies of pulpmaking woods
and numerous and large water powers.
Of the forest area of the United States,
outside of Alaska, something over one
quartir is located in the states of Vhgin
ia, North Carolina, South Carolina. Geor
gia, Alabama, Mississippi. Tennessee and
Kentucky. The varieties of pulp-making
woods found in other feet ions of the
country grow in th*>*e states. The supply
of some varieties of th-’se woods is small,
too small, perhaps, to be considered ex
cept in connection with the use of other
woods. In the forest regions of the moun
tain and Pi dmor.t se tion of the South,
however, are large supplies of P plar, bal
sam, hemlc-ck, and a sufficient quantity
of some othtr woods to give abundant
pulp-making mateiial for a large number
of mills for many years to come. From
the land and industrial department of th
Sou'h* rn Railway ctmes the following ln
forrraiion in regard to the sup.dv of thes •
woods in the terr tory mentioned.
Poplar grows abundantly in the Appa
lachian mountain regions of Virg n a
North Carolina, Tennessee, Northern
Georgia and other places. Poplar reach* s
its best development on the slopes of tin
high mountains of Nor h Carolina and
Tennessee, and 13 widely distributed. It
reaches in this ctlon an avrrige high'
of from sixty to one hundred feet, and an
average diameter of frem three to four
feet. Some of the trees are of remarka
ble size. A recent North Carolina publi
cation estimated that more than 500,00
000 feet of merchantable yellow poplar Is
now standing In the mountains of the
western part of that state. This estimate
is undoubtedly too low Asheville might
be called the center of the poplar region.
The poplar areas are found in the neigh
borhood of good rivers and streams, fur
nishing abundant water power. Proba
bly no other section of the United States
has such an abundant supply of poplar
wood to-day for the soda process and for
producing fine papers. The Southern bal
sam, which is the Northern spruce, grows
in a good area in the mountain regions
along the Carolina and Tennessee border,
and is abundant enough to furnish o first
class supply for o large number of mills.
This wood is not at present utilized to
any extent in the South, and is to be ha 1
very cheaply. The supply of hemlock
through the mountain and Piedmont re
gions Is very great. There is more of it
in the aggregate probably than both bal
sam and poplar. No market has been
found for Southern hemlock lumber, and
its cheapness of supply should certainly
attract the attention of pulp makers look
ing for new field® for their industries. In
addition to the first growth there arc
large quantities of second growth poplar
available for pulp-making.
Several varieties of gum are found in
large quantities in the Southern states*
The sweet gum is known to be a good
pulp wood. In the mountain regions ad
jacent to supplies of poplar, balsam and
hemlock, or in connection .with them,
basswood is found in fair quantities. It
attains n hight of from fifty to eighty
feel, and a diameter of from one to four
An idea of the supply of pulpmaking
wood® in the mountain regions of the South
may he had from an estimate on a tract
in Western North Carolina, which was re
cently made. The tract has on area of
about 55,000 acres, and the estimates show
about 225,000.000 feet of batsam. 25,000,000
feet white pine. 65.000,000 feet yellow pop
lar, 50,000,000 feet chestnut, 350,000.000 feet
hemlock, 30.0003100 feet of other woods, in
cluding cherry, lynn, buckeye, hickory,
birch and locust. These supplies of pulp
making woods in the mountain regions of
the South are not unavailable on account
of distance from railroads and cost of.
reaching markets with the paper mill pro
duct. The Southern Railway has several
lines traversing different sections of these
regions, and the wood supplies are tribu
tary to different points on these lines,
while nearby are- to be found sufficient
water powers to run large mills. The fuel
supply' of the South is. as a rule, much
cheaper than that of the North.
and building material ebst less, and with
a much smaller cost of woods It ought to

and Telcsraplilc Markets.
Morning News Office, July G.—There was
considerable activity during the past week
In both the local and outside markets,
which resulted in gains being scored all
around. The cotton market moved up
ward in response to the strength shown
New York futures, while naval stores also
gave evidence of being in strong i>osltion.
Substantial gains were shown in the cot
ton futures market.
The tendency of the cotton market to
day was to advance, and the closing was
at a net gain of 'J and 25 points. This was
due to the strong Liverpool cables, which
were received during the early part of
the session. Considerable speculation
followed the advances, and the day closed
with a moderate volume of business te
ported. July closed at 10.10 c, and August
at 9.72 c.
The naval stores market has been well
maintained during the week, with the fea
tures the advance scored in rosins by ma
son of the strength Imparted owing to
lighter receipts, and the prospects of a
still greater failing off later in the month.
Conditions have tended to maintain the
price of turpentine also.
The weather conditions in the crop belt
have been detrimental to the harves ing
of the product during the week. Factors
are beginning to figure on the drawback to
the crop as a result of the many disad
vantages the industry has suffered this
season, and many are ready to believe the
yield this year will be considerably less
than was looked for. Asa result of tho
large amount of virgin lands opened early
in the season it looked like this would is?
the star season for naval stores, and that,
the output would reach unprecedented -fig
ures. Since the floods of the early part
of the season, the shortage of labor, end
the more recent rains have got in their
work, the general opinion Is that the ex
pected big yield will be cut down. One
large factor stated to-day that he did not
think this season's output would exceed
that of last year 5 per cent., unless there
is a very great change shortly for the bet
ter. Indications point to light receipts
during the early part of July, as a lesult
of unfavorable weather, but with improv
ed conditions It is thought probable an in
crease will come the latter part of the
Owing to the fact that much of the re
ceipts of turpentine at this market are be
ing used in making deliveries the skua.ion
Is necessarily without a great deal of in
terest. Buyers have come to the front
slowly, and were then unwilling to pay
the market prices,which left them at such
variance with factors as to make business
impossible. Factors, declined to accept
bids for less than quotations, nnd did trot
seem anxious to sell even on this basis.
All seemed anxious to make deliveries
while the opportunity is good.
The wholesale markets were steady and,
in the main, unchanged. The following re
sume of the different markets will show
their tone and quotations at the close to

Upwards of 500 baits of cotton were re
ported sold in the local market during the
past week. There was some revival of
business, which gave courage to those
who hayo watched things move along in
differently for some time past. The in
terest of the trade was, of course, greatly
attracled to the futures market, which
showed considerable strength following
the recent reaction. The local receipts

COTTON FI TCHES.
The Market Advances Sharply on
Strong Liverpool New*.
New York, July 6.-Strong Liverpool ca
bles dominated the local cotton market
to-day and inspired considerable bull
speculation in the forenoon. The bearish
effect of fine weather reports, sensational
political news from China and a better
tenor of crop testimony, was for the time
being small in comparison with the influ
ence of a pronounced advance in both
spot and future cotton abroad, especially
ns news of the latter was supplemented
by generous buying orders from Liver
pool. Our market started firm in tone at
an advance of I®6 points and scored a
net rise of 10®17 points before a reac
tion set in. On the bulge room shorts
and the foreign representation in general
wa re conspicuous as buyers; the South
and the more courageous bears her sup
plied the cotton needed to satisfy the
former demand. Private advances ascrib
ed ihe firmness in Liverpool to covering.
In the early afternoon our market was
less firm and prices went off from tire top
several points under exceptionally line
'weather reports and predictions from the
entire belt. Short selling became quite
active on the theory that Liverpool w-ould
respond to the fine weather accounts to
morrow. The market later turned strong
on European purchases, which carried
July to 10.10 c andAugust to 9.72 c,

New York. July G.—Hubbard Bros. A
Cos. says: Continental buying in Liver
pool yesterday and to-day caused the im
provemen* there which brought many
buying orders here. Crop prospects have
improved during the week, and an ex
pected good Chronicle report caused the
reaction from the best prices of the day.
The South has been selling during the
morning. We estimate the purchases at
over 10,000 bales. Many Liverpool houses
are looking for a sharp reaction from
the advance of the past week, though
there is no change in the strength of the
statistical position. Local traders are in
clined to be bearish on the rains in Texas.
New York, July 6.—Murphy & Cos.
say: The advance in Liverpool this
morning was attributed to large
buy it. g for Egypiion account. The
advances were better than looked for, and
caused the higher opening here. Liver
pool was a free buyer here of ail positions.
The near months are ruling firm, owing
to the indisposition to sell. The weekly
figures show a loss of 50,000 bales in the
stock and afloat for Liverpool. Trading
has been quite active, but the South has
been the principal seller. The weather
is generally favorable. The bureau re
port will be issued on the 10th inst. It
will probably be quite unfavorable, as
it is made up to the Ist, but weather
since has improved materially. We look
for a feverish market, with depressed

VISIBLE SUPPLY OK COTTON.
New Orleans, July 6.—Secretary Hes
ter’s statement of the world's'vlsible sup
ply of cotton shows the total visible for
the week 1.722,943. against 1,864,119 last
week; of this, the total of American cot
ton Is 1,126,943, against 1,264,119 last week,
and 2,678,329 last year, and of all other
kinds, including Egypt, Brazil, India, etc,,
596.000, against 600,000 and 942,000.
Of the world's vialble supply there is
now afloat and held in Great Britain and

2.191,000 last year; in Egypt, 92,t00, against
104,000; In India, 300,000, against 592,00),
and in the United States, 254,000, against

ruled steady on brown cotton, with rather
more inquiry. Bleached dull and un
changed; coarse-colored goods also dull
at previous prices. Print cloths firm un
der prospective curtailment. Prints quiet
and unchanged Linens dull, but steady.
Burlaps firmer for Calcutta.
TIIE RICE MARKET.
Demand Again Springs (p for Sup
plies in l*ortn Rico,
Porto Rican buyers are again showing
interest in the rice market. Transactions
have been restricted on account of limit
ed supply, but part of the Inquiry was evi
dently for the purpose of confirming values
on previous purchases. Request for low
grades also continues from primal points.
While the demand therefrom has slacken
ed, it is sufficiently sizable to make "a
second string to the bow.” Reports from
trade centers note light stoilks and con
firmatory evidence is found in orders com
ing In mainly by wire and Imperative as
to shipment; this also Is encouraging to
holders, In that V gives promise of suc
ceeding and steady patronage.
Advices from the South note wholesome
activity along the Atlantic coast, nearly
double the corresponding week of last year
and .over six limes same week in previous
years. Factors generally are disposed to
sell, but some are again holding aloof on
expectation of higher price* as the month
progresses, in Louisiana, the demand for
cleaned rice is far ahead of the supply and
tydders ore going out of stock nt full fig
ures. Advices regarding Ihe growing crop
are, on the whole, favorable. Some locali
ties have suffered from excessive rainfall
and replanting has been done by the more
sanguine, who anticipate a good harvest
even If late.
Cables and correspondence from abroad
confirm an accent the conditions of the
famine In India, which Is now one of the
largest factors in the movement of rice.

SPIRITS TURPENTINE-In holding Its
own the turpentine market showed con
siderable strength te-day The opening
was at 43 cent* bid. with few factors In
c'.ioed to do business on this basis. The
closing was firm at 43V cents, with sales
of SS7 casks. Throughout the week values
were well maintained, and the indications
do not point to any immediate break.-,. It
is thought the receipts for the first part
of July will be small, but the belief is
there will be a decided improvement later
in the month.
The receipts of turpentine during the
week were 9,301, against 9,561 last year,
and the exports 9,017, against 11.1C5 last
year. The exports were, to New Tork,
I, to the Interior. 98; to Rotterdam,
2,421; to London. 2,567; to Liverpool. 2,675.
ROSINS—The advances in the rosf.i mar
ket have been the feature of the week in
the naval stores market. The entiire line
was marked up 5 cents on Thursday, and
to-day another advance was scored on the
four higher grades. At the adva/nce there
is apparently a good demand.
The receipts of rosin were 17,78, against
22,010 last year, and the exports, 26,159,
against 34,226 last year. The exports were,
to Baltimore, 7,887; to Philadelphia. 300; to

I There was nothing in the news of the day
that exerted any marked influence on the

to ihe natural reactions attending profit,

shaky condition of the market as the day
The lower prio<% for Americans in l n .
don had little effect as on previous days
and the professional bulls resumed the
tactics which were so successful yester
day in lifting the level of prices. But it
became manifest early in the day that
yesterday’s sustaining influence in fh<*
strength of New Jersey Central and its
allied .stocks was lacking to-day. Never
theless considerably higher level of price*
was obtained in the grangers, Baltimore
nnd Ohio and Missouri Pacific. Sugar, the
local tractions and People’s Gas were alw
The steel stocks suffered from reallzim
on the published report that the stef>l In
terests wore conferring to maintain
prices. The London selling was persisted
in later than usual and had an effect in
combination with the break in the stral

I after rising \ 4 , was driven down 2%.
In January tho directors declared a 2 p*r

Now tho traders are selling the st<vk on
the surmise that at Monday’s dividend
meeting there will be declared I*4 per cent,
