Post and Flagg’s Cotton Letter.
New York, Aug. 12.—Reports of
high temperatures with lack of rain
in the southwest led to more or less
covering by scattered shorts in the
later trhding on the ground that
complaints of shedding would pres
ently be heard but, although prices
worked up with the market still nar
row, there appeared no general dis
position to follow and the rally was
considered on the whole nothing
more than n technical affair.
Until the volume of hedging in
creases the supply of contracts will
remain comparatively limited and it
will be easy for an oversold condi
tion to develop as a result of eager
ness on the part of traders to an
ticipate the effect of such selling
ngainst the crop. It does not appear,
however that there has been any
such change in the general situation
as to enable consumers to pay any
material advances and with specula
tors for the most part bearish it is
Llifficult to visualize .just where the
I support is coirfng from that will
, presently be needed to take up the
slack in the market.

THE CONCORD DAILY TRIBUNE
BUSINESS AND THE OUTLOOK.
“A feature of the business situa
tion in the Middle Eastern district is
the continued absence of the usnal
midsummer dullness in many lines of
industry,” says the August bulletin
of the Cleveland Federal Reserve
Bank, and this is true of the situa
tion in most sections of_ the country.
As a result of this, increased confidence
has been inspired, and the feeling is
pretty well established that business
is being maintained at a satisfactory
rate. Car-loadings, which are a
good index of industrial and commer
cial activity, continue at a high level.
The crop average iB good,’ with farm
implement manufacturers having their
best selling season in years.
With seemingly perfect understand
ing between he Bank of England
and the Federal Reserve System in
this country, it is believed that the
reduction in the discount rate in Lon
don, which came as a surprise to Wall
Street, will not be followed by any
tightening of the money market on
this side. This seems to give assur
ance that there will be ample funds
in the banks to finance any reasonable
business expansion which may devel
op in the fall or winter.
Saturday's closing of the cotton
market was followed quickly by the
issue of the Government's estimate
giving the changes due to drought and
rain in the intervening two weeks.

for the threatened coni strike, the
prescrit indications are encouraging,
and tlie greater activity in the form

further tax reduction is among the
factors that have tended to strength

constructive influence of the improv
ed financial position and enhanced
purchasing power of farmers in the
West and the South. In view of the
stimulating forces which now prevail,
there is solid reason for expecting a
gohd autiAnn trade.”

struction activity of the last month
in its monthly review. Contracts in
the thirty-six eastern states (which
include about seven-eighths of the to
tal construction volume of the coun

only two previous month* has this'
total ever been exceeded, April and

from June was only two per cent,
while the increase over July of last
year was over 53 per cent. There is
usually a fairly considerable seasonal
decline in July.
Last month’s record included;
$225,712,500, or 42 per cent of all
construction, or 14 per cent, for pub
lic works and utilities; $67,165,000,
or 13 per cent, for commercial build
ings; $68,148,000, or 11 per cent,
for industrial plants (including a 30-
million dollar power development in
Ohio;) and $57,572,000, or 11 per
cent, for educational buildings (in
cluding large building projects for
Harvard, Yale and Pittsburgh univer
Last month’s figures brought the
year’s total of construction started
to date up to $3,189,173,800, an in
. crease of nearly 20 per cent over the
, first seven months of 1924. At the
j end of June this year was only 15
per cent ahead of last year.
Contemplated new work reported in
July amounted to $702,431,300. This

amounted to $87,701,800, the highest
monthly total yet recorded for this |
. district. ' The increase Ipver June
1 was 18 per cent; over July of last
year, 53 per cent. Construction
! started in the district during the past
seven months has reached a total of
$422,824,200, an increase of nearly
1 19 per cent over the corresponding
period of 1924.
