Market Letter on Cotton.
By private wire, J.E Latham ft Co. v
New Toxk, Dec. SO. Like a great
many people we have an idea that fig
ures make dry reading. While figures
don't He and all that sort of thing, they
can offer one way and rally to another.
Now for Instance the world's visible
supply 8,889,000 bales as compared with
4,028,000 bales last year and 8,931,000
bales two years ago. Taken on thfs
stand, we think there ia enough In the
comparison to tend every one Into the
market as buyers.; Not for a few paltry
points, but for nine, ten or eleven cents
a ponnd. Thing of tt for a moment Is
840 009 bales less In the world's visible
supply than year ago. ' Last year
prices started from 8io about this time
end never stopped going till 9.46 was
reached in the , spring. ' This year why
should It not go to 10.68 on the same
reasoning? But wait a minute, we start
ed the season with a world's supply Just
200,100 bales less than last year. ; At
present European spinners have 884,000
bales more than last year according to
Ellison, and taking Northern and South
ern spinners together, the American sup
ply la 180,000 bales more than last year,
The two mean a total of 850,000 bales
held by spinners more than last j ear,
and the visible supply Is 840,000 less.
Now where is the bull argument f In
one way yon can turn thla Into a bear
argument if you wish Prloee last year
about 7c all through November when
some five million bales had been mar
keted, spinners did not pay over 8o for
five million bales bought early in the
season. They have paid over 8o and as
high as 8fo for every bale of the new
crop this, year. We are taking New
Tork prices as baste. Now it stands to
reason If spinners have bought the cot
ton at high prices this year - when they
did not buy as much last year, at lower
prices, last season, they have nbt only
paid more bat have more on band. If
they have on hand they .will not have to
bay as they did on last years advance
after January. So yon see you can not
trust figures anyway you Want. The
market la still the same old market with
every reason why prices should be high
er for the present, but without buyers
enough to put It up. Tske profits on

GOOD TOBACCO SEASON.
Oifht to Be Largely Increased In 103.
. Warchoase Company Propos
eo, The tobacco season for the year 1902
has about closed with as, but a stray
load comes In onee In a while, . There
were about ten loada in this past week
at the Farmers Warehouse, but nearly
all the crop from thla section has beea
sold. The season Just closing has been
the largest In the history of New Bern
and the sales will nearly go to a million
and a half pounds, which is quite a Jump
from a half million last year.
The prices realized by the planters of
this section has been as good on this
market as on any of the Eastern Mar
There Is no reason why New Bern
should not get Its share, of the tobacco
business of this section, but In order to
get It there must ba some effort made to
hold what we have and to Increase the
business. Wilmington is making an
effort to open a market there and has
subscribed quite a large amount for that
We understand an effort will be made
to organise the Farmera Warehouse Co.,
whlohwlllbe incorporated, wltlf a capi
tal stock of $5,000 to buy and sell tobac
co and to erect a stemmery. i The shsres
will be of the par valae of $10,03 and an
effort will be made to have a part of the
stock taken by the tobacco farmers of
this section. We trust our business men
will give the enterprise their encourage
ment, and- do all they can to build up
Tobacco has been a great help to the
planter this year and they have been
enabled to meet their bills and have
some to spare, and they have invested
In hardware, furniture, building mater
ial, and some of the luxuries as well u
the necessities, all of which has been of
value and profit to New Bern's business

Wolves, wolverene and eagles are
their most common enemies, and the
lambs suffer extensively from these.
Wolves are capable of taking down
grown animals, bnt in summer hunger

struggle, and in winter they prefer
lower altitudes. There are many stories
told of the lordly ram doing battle
With wolves, which are on a par with
the story of leaping from dizzy heights.
The old rams are Cunning, and in thla
