Mr. A. J. Huston of Liverpool. England,
who l credited with being "on?* of th*'
best-known cotton experts In tlie world,"
h H J*i*4 completed his "customary tour
through the Southern states for the pur
pose of examining the cotton crop." A*
New Orleans the other day Mr Huston
gave out n summary for publication of
the conclusions he had reached from hi#
observations. These conclusions, while
they may b accepted seriously In Liver
pool and elsewhere in Great Britain, are
likely to be regarded with amusement In
this country by p* rsons who are familiar
with the cotton situation.
Mr. Huston thinks the stie of the crop
has been considerably underestimated. In
plade of a 9.000,0bb-bale crop he look* for
one of 10.250.0 W, which may be still fur
ther It r* <-* l if there D u late frost. He
arrives at this conclusion, he says, from
these reasons: "The slxe of the bolls, as
compared with hist year. Is much larger,
the yield per acre of lint Is much larger;
the staple la everywhere superior to that
of last year, and h* bales are heavier."
Many of the planters say that picking Is
ttlwut over, but Mr. Huston cannot ufree
with them. He thinks the picking will ex
tend over severe! weeks yei, und tlmt for
some time cotton will continue So flow
Into the market. The cry of scarcity of
labor is one of the things which the Eng
lishman cunrot understand. "The wages,"
ho soys, "are r a onabtv—S3 p* r day at al
most nil th** plain at ?ons—-and It Is surpris
ing that the people do not take advantage
of this opportunity." In Alabama. Texas
and Georgia he found tills shortage of
lutior most acute, notwithstanding the of
fer of |3 per day to cotton pickers.
There are several points in Mr. Huston's
statement which wall-informed cotton
men will read with a smile, since they in
dicate that his four has not been eminent
ly successful in so far as gathering a lot
of valuable facts Is concerned. If he Is
looking for a crop of upw*ards of 10.2KMKN)
bale?-, h doomed io disappointment.

who base their expectations upon his con
