Not since tha fictitious slump In Liver
pool cotton future* has excitement run
wilder in the Cotton Exchange than it
did ynaterday over the government’s crop
©st.&at© snd a concurrent drop n th
New York cotton futures market of from
27 to 39 points. More of a stir followed
the announcement b© \tu.e of he extreme

none had braced themselves to receive an
estimate of ten millions.
That the loral trad© is disappointed
over the estima'e is shown by the recent
polling of member# of the For ton Ex

i The averag© estimat© of thirty-six num

Members of the Cotton Exchange ex
pressed themselves a* surprised at the
government estlmae, an*l many
are unwilling to believe that
the crop will turn ten mil
lions. The belief was expressed on the
floor quite generally that the estimate
wrtll prove excessive by from ftflb.W to
fifti.OTrt. While there was a large num
ber disappointed they and not believe that
the estimate will have such ft depressing
effect after all. since several estlmat *s
of the season's consumption put It .at
ten millions and over. Ellison is report** 1
to have estimated the consumption about
what the government makes ihe crop.
Pretty much the entire trading
machinery came to an abrupt stop after
the bureau report, and practically i
business was transacted during the re
mainder of the day. The Savannah spot
market responded to the drop m futures
by a decline of t 4 c, wfth the tone quiet
and easy. No sales were reported Buy
ers ♦ Xpert a much lower Liverpool to-day
In response to New York’s drop, and con
sequently were not eager to take cotton
until the market yields to the Imttom
notch On the other hard holders In the
country were Indifferent about offer
ing cotton. and as one man
wired. “were doing nothing since
the drap." I’ntil after the trade has a
breathing spell It Is not likely that busi
ness will be retimed on an extensive
scale. The belief Is that the future pol
icy of spinners in buying cotton or con
tinuing their hand-to-mouth tactics will
have much to do with the course of the
market. l*nb*ss there are unmistakable
evidence* of an over-production. i Is not
expected that holders of cotton will dump
It upon the open market in quantities
that will further the decline.
