Nbw Yohx, Oct. 8. For some nnex
plalnable reason the market broke about
10 points early, and tbe sentiment was
such that the market failed to recover.
It may hare been the better weather, the
nervousness In the stock market, or
due to profit taking. The simple explan
ation Is the eaalest, that the market
can't always advance. The good news
on the market la all out, a change can
be looked for. Improved weather Will
have an Influence for tbe time being,
but we doubt whether the good weather
effects will be as material, aa sentiment
predicts It will require good weatker
to pick what we have this year, without
good weather the grade will be poor. I If
recelpta fall of before the latter part ot
this month, the world will conclude
that the crop la moderate, and the buy
Ing of spinners will prevent any break.
For the present a steady market mesas
a strong market. A reaotlon of ups sn4
downs is in order, end we believe in buy
Ing Spring months. Spinners are buy
ing In Texas at ale and aa long aa this
condition exiets there Is no great chance
for a serious break.
Nkw York, Oct. 4. We believe this
year's crop will prove nearly as large as
the production of years ago. and even
granting the influence of those specuk
tors seeamg to maae crop conditions as
dangerous as possible, there ia little
hope of much more than waa grown last
year. Laat year's crop wu probably be
tween 10,250,000 and 10,400,000 bales.tho
rest came of the stocks of the previous
year. They aay the crop of 1900 wu
10,750,000, and only 10,450,000 appeared
In eight We can roughly estimate total
drawn Into consumption as 400,000 front
lut year. Now thla year there ia too
little to Indicate a yield above lut year
and with an early frost not u much.
There are of course other factors In the
situation. The condition of the money
market, the strike and mostly the ac
cumulation of January. What Influence
thla will have we can't tell, but aa far u
supply and demand are concerned, we
can no reason for not being bulls. Con

He waa a well known writer. 'It is
