Mississippi is as yet an unknown quantity, but it is estimated that tho other States will produce 0, 500.000 bales. He looks for cotton to be even lower than it is now be 'ore tho end of the year.

F New England Cotton Men Meet and Adopt Resolutions CALLING ON THE PLANTERS To Put Up Their Cotton Iu Better Shape They Insist on the New Sys'eni. 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 aud weighing. "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.
