This Year's Cotton Crop.
Mr. W. F.Caliender, of Augusta, Ga.,
who has been iu Charlotte, N. C. , sev
eral days, docs not think the j-ield of
cotton has beeu overestimated. He rep
resents a large Liverpool cotton house,
and has recently been over a large part
of tha cotton-growing section. Ho says
there is yet a large amount of cotton in
the fields in some sections. Ho thinks
the crop w ill not be less than 10, .100, 000
bales. He says that Texas will, at tho
lowest ostimato, produce three million
bales this year. Mississippi is as yet an
unknown quantity, but it is estimated
that tho other States will produce 0,
He looks for cotton to be even lower
than it is now be 'ore tho end of the
year. All the Liverpool operators are
iiguring on a crop of 10,-100, 0W bales.

New England Cotton Men Meet and
CALLING ON THE PLANTERS
To Put Up Their Cotton Iu Better
Shape They Insist on the New
The Arkwright Club, the membership
which is almost entirely composed of
treasurers aud managers of New Fng
land cotton mills, held a largely-attended
meeting at Koston, Mass. The topic
discussed was the baling of cotton, and
th--follow ingwas unanimously adopted:
"Cotton manufacturers have foi a
long time suffered in their business by
reason of the poor condition in w hich
1 cotton has been delivered to them. It
J is poorly ginned, poorly handled, poor
, ly baled, over hooked and subject to
! robbery from th time it leaves the
t planters' hands until it reaches the
I mills. Nearly all of these evils are en
; couraged and fostered by the practice
j of dealing in cotton at gross rate.
I "The advout into the market of cot-
ton put up iu new forms of bales in
I proper condition gives an opportunity
to remove these evils and their causes.
The old forms of bales can be made en
tirely satisfactory if put up in like man
ner to tho Fgypt;au. As a large amount
of cotton this seasou will be put up in
the new bales, the time has arrived
when users are in a position to take a
decided stand on the question of baling
"We, therefore, insi.-t upon better
baling aud handling of cotton and upon
a system dealing at a net rate, aud we
pledge ourselves to give all the prefer
ence possible to cotton so baled, hau
dled and sold. "
It was stated in the course of discus
sion that at least two new forms of cyl
indrical bales have been invented, aud
are actively promoted, as well as one
new form of the squaro bale, aud are
vastly superior to the old bales. For
eign cotton reaches the manufacturers
iu good shape, and they are nnu-h more
dissatisfied with the manner in which
American cotton is put up. The mem
bers showed a firm resolution to insist
on better methods of preparation. Their
i lea is not so much in favor of the
adoption of any particular form of bale,
or even the abandonment of the old, but
to secure such improved methods of
baling as will assure them that they
will receive at the mills the cotton
which they buy.
