LOOTING FOR L0WEX PUCES.
Rev fork Expects and $r Coal In a
Hew York, Oct 23 With the resump
tion of operation! ta the anthracite coal
mines of tansytvanla, the people of the
United States who hare been paying ex
orbitant rates for fuel for months will
soon be able to buy eoal at something
near the rate which wu charged before
the strike wu ordered; that wu 85,33 a
ton for this city. -:
This It the statement made tome of
the large retail dealer here, who, how
ever, tay it may be tome weeks before a
figure approaching ' thla ' price Will be
quoted. While Hall depend, they uy,
on amount mine owner will send out
they are reasonably sure that even by
next week there will be an appreciable
reduction from the $15, wbioh U the pre
vailing rate now. ' The day la not far
distant, all agree, , when the pibllo will
be enabled to get eoal at a price ranging
between $8 and $7.
It It the general Idea that the mine-
owner will be able to turn out, begin
ning with tomorrow, at leut about two
third of their usual tonnage, and there
la no reason to believe ' the Eastern cities
will not receive their proportionate
ahare, although there are aome.who be
lieve that a large percentage of . the
amount mined will be sent to the West,
so that It may be spread over the Great
Lakes beforelwlnter catches themwlih

Market Letter on Cotton.
By private wire, J. E Latham ft Co.
Naw Yobk, Oct S3. There wu no
change In the Irregular disappointing
character of the market It wu small
receipt, tugging at one end, and fine
weather at the other, between the two
price moved In first one direction, and
then in the other. We are free to con
fess we don't know what it the trouble.
In tome ways the market look u
though It wanted to ease off, but Just as
soon u It gets started, one short of Jan
uary get frightened and covert. Thtt
advance January and causes buying In
March and May. Then Instead of a de
cline, the market halts and before one
U aware of it, advances several points,
and so It goes. Aawe aald the market
Is much disturbed and the only way
teems to be to buy on a good break and
as soon as tha cotton shows a profit, let
It go. The advance in January to 8.71
and a premium of 26 pointa over March
attracted selling of January and this
wu partly responsible for the break.
Another reason wu the report that Mr.
Bnston who came last year will estimate
the crop tomorrow. We would place
about u much confidence In his views
u we would In "a prominent New
Torkers." He 1 unbiased by any Inter

we overstate the case when we uy that
October is about the wont month .in the
year. ? It doea not make any difference
whether a man. la long or ahortorhu
any interest at all, the month is disgust
ing. This ' It due to weather. There
tt a general feeling that a few good days
in October add several thousand bales
to the crop. .Before frost actually comet
this It aggregated until the crop 1 augu-
mented by about a million bales, and It
would aeem.u though there wano

ceipts begin to fall off. Thetltuatloa
though, does seem favorable to buyer.
Even though the crop it 10,500,000 balea

Anyone buying cotton now must expect
thla uncertainty for a time. There it
not likely to be much of an advance as
