Cattaa Tarns Rot Advanced to
- , Higher If ice U Spot Cotton
Char lot to, N. C , Feb. 18 -From an
Interview given by several cotton manu
faetarers it would seem that nnless
there Is some change la prices a large
curtailment may follow among tba yarn
mills. A prominent .manufacturer,
speaking of high prices t cotton to day
aid that at present prices for spot cot
ton It Is almost Impossible for tbe mills
lo coma oat as good as even on . manu
factured goods, our people gutting the
same, prices now as when cotton was
selling around ? cents. Cotton yarns
have not advanced anything like tbe ad
vanoe la cotton. Just how long the
mills will hold out under these condi
tions ha was unable to sty, but certainly
ft !ll not belong.-' i:. ,'""' "
Other manufacturers were approached
oa the aarae subject and unanimously
corrobotatbd the foregoing statement
One went so far as te say that be was
afraid that If conditions did not change
very sooa a number of mills would of
necessity be compelled to shutdown un
til higher prices prevailed, Another
manufacturer admitted that the mills he
was connected with had made no money
for some time and that at present
prices obtainable for yarns It was los
ing game all tbe way through.. Mills
making the finer grades of yarns are
about tbe only ones making auy money
It Is said.
