"k Market Letter on Cotton. .:
', J, j . . r . . - . . -
By privau wire, J. E Latham & Ce.
New Tork, November 24 -At BM,
the prioe touched thlt a. m. , March cot
ton hat enjoyed the substantial advance
of 50 points In less than 10 trading days.
In view of all circumstanoea this It a
noteworthy gain and one that Inclines
the conservative holder to Una profits
regardless ot the future. It may be that
the eotton world It all wrong and! prices
are now on the way to 9c before the bu
reau report It may be crop la really 10
million and there are sensational; devel
opments ahead of us. , All of thu 1 may
be buf it will be remembered less than 3
weeks ago we said we believed In buy
ing on every break, and It .wu many a
weary day before thlt cotton showed a
profit Now ' we are having the other
turn of the wheel. Buying against the
tide wat the tafe thing to do below 8c.
to telling for profits on an advance of
60 oointa la the thine to do bow. Thlt
It not saying market won't go higher.
Prices are running In wavea and there It
no telling what prices may do.- Every
body will take profits on such bulges aa
these. ' Spot Interests are working for
thlt advance and are now anxious to see
a narrower difference between January
and March. Weather it bad, froatsmore
likely to appear and Liverpool in a de
moralized condition. ! 8ell long cotton
on every advance. " ' ! '
-j ' 3. E. Latham & Co.
New Tork, Not. 23,The market had
a ten point break thla a. m. and then a
sharp recovery of 8 to 10 points. Break
due to lower Liverpool cablet and nat
ural telling after the advance, The re
covery waa due to moderate estimates at
Houston for Monday and the prospect
of a moderate movement of cotton next
week as bureau la expected to be bullish.
We will not have much short telling In
the meantime.- Those who believe In a
large crop and consider anything over
8I0. In New Tork hardly justified at this
season of the year will welcome advance
to tell on. Those who look for moder
ate receipts and the ( coming reports aa
bull factors will buy as long aa the mar
ket keeps going up. ' The two tend to
create, a better . market and one that
should be a fair risk to buy on any
breaks. The market showed resistance
to pressure.' We should not be surprised
to tee a lower . range of wheat early In
the week 'and would certainly buy, if
lett than 1 to 3 points.'. One reason for
the recent advance has been bad reports
from Texas where excessive rains have
delayed picking caused rot, etc. Then
why not delay- marketing aa well; It
works both ways f We would continue
to sell on every advance and wait tor a
substaatlal break for baying again. , i

A great number of vessels of light
draft come to this port, many of them
are from Swansboro, Beaufort, The
Straits, and In L fact 111 along the .coast.
They nearly all pus through the old
Clubfoot and Harlowe Conal.
This canal belongs to a corporation,
Who hu'almost abandoned it, in fact no
tolls have been collected for several
vtars. A great saving of distance and
many dangers are avoided by putlng
through the canal, but the skippers re
port that it is fast filling up, and before
many years perhaps will be Impuslble.
Some effort might be made to Induce
the government, to acquire the title to
thla waterway and appropriate a sum
sufficient to open .it for traffic. I ;
The canal proper, that is where dredg
ing would be needed is said to be only
about three mllea, and a comparatively
small asm; ot money would do fhls
work. ,1 . -J
To open - the canal would be a great
convenience to the people along the
