NO NEW FEATURES IN THE MARKET The Sltuatloi lid Outlook Remali Practl- cally tlio Sans is Oitlloed Ii Loasdalei Letter Tuesday. October S, 1905. Today's market was quiet and steady and devoid of any particular new fea tures for any extended comment. The situation and outlook remain practically me same as outlined at length in our letters of yesterday and on Tuesday afternoon. The speculation has simply relapsed into dullness temporarily pending further developments in regard to the attitude of planters and factors in . the south on the question of holding or marketing their crop at present prices. There is a general belief in the south that government's crop report of Tuesday, making the condition 71.2 per eent, very greatly exaggerates the present sit-nation, but on the other hand, it has only confirmed the opinions which the foreigners and spinning interests generally have maintained that the farmers themselves were exaggerating the dam-tge until something develops caleulst ' to cause a break in the deadlock. O two extreme views we are not like see very much change in the mu either way from the piesent range. We, however, believe it will continue to bs a good one for scalping operations, and in . view of the necessities of spinners and the ability and inclination of the south to market the crop sparingly and the possibility of a crop scare yet developing before the close of the season from pos sible early frost, we would now much " prefer scalping the n-arket on the bull side and favor purchases on all further breaks from this level for moderate turns The maximum fluctuations today were confined within a range of five points from last night 's dosing. That represented the maximum early decline. There . wag no further extensive liquidation, however, and the buying from shorts covering and traders buying for rally, furnished sufficient demand to easily take care of offerings. Stock in New York continues to steadily increase with the total now up to 208,000 bales, of which 188,000 are in licensed warehouses, including 178,000 of cmtract grade. J. G. LONSDALE & CO. LONSDALE & C0S DAILY 6 RAIN LETTER LONSDALE'S OOSBOP. HenU. New Tok It. lather looks as If the weak long Interests have been pretty veil liquidated. Bull operations, however, nave received a serious check, and while the reaction is only natural after the sharp decline we dont' expect any sustained advance. Liverpool this morning Is about right. . Beer, New Orleans Market opened shade higher than yesterday, but eased off on com ing of lower English specials, Traders appear to fear a sudden advance lh market and are refraining from Helling.. Borden is reported as bulling the cotton goods market at New York, bidding lor large blocks of print cloths at highest level ot season. Colder weather is in sight, tne movement is light at primary points, small er than last week at some points; we will encourage buying on easy periods. Moler Castles, who was one of the most outspoken bulls and buyers of cotton here at 11c, and who-was a heavy seller on Mon day .and sold about 36,080 .bales early yes-terday, has sold 10 to 16.000 bales additional this morning aa tow as 10.2$ tor January. Moler, New York The trade generally believes Mr. Price, although still very bearish and expecting to see price go still lower, covered a great deal of abort cotton during the excited liquidation and bear hammering of Tuesday aada further rata made on the market early yesterday. He has. denied this repert and states that he believes the weight ef the crop aadhe easy position of the world s spinners must result In ultimately lower prices. If he did not boy any cotton Tuesday or yesterday, soma equally as large and influential interest did so, for we noted exceptionally good baying all through the break Tuesday afternoon and all day yesterday. There la a big short Interest in the market now and It looks to be in a better position to respond to any new bullish developments. Beer, New Orleans Must have had heavy rains in Texas; average for Galveston district 44; precipitation not posted yet. Moler, New Tork Liverpool's advance of about 4 points is what was necessary to have equaled our net advance of yesterday. A more friendly feeling toward the market is developing than prevailed on the first reading and consideration of government report. Much will depend on the character of the weather conditions this month, and early frost and the subsequent weather conditions for gathering the -top ,erop. At tne moment we aon t tnniK tne present situation indicates a crop of more than 10.- 600,000 bales on the outside calculation.

New York, Octoh We have ha - October 6, 1905. Chicago, 111. Wheat: Broomkall estimated Argentine shipments at 400,000, less than half of what they were a week ago. Our market today was strong throughout, and while the full advance was not held, prices nevertheless show l-4c gain. The news was of the helpful kind, cables being higher and a better cash demand reported for milling purposes from the Various primary points, . then again, the market opened under the stimulating news that was received yes- i terday regarding shipments of Duiuth wheat to Germany. All were factors con- , tributing to the better feeling. The persistent strength and support by the leading interest ia December wheat is causing considerable uneasiness in the ranks of the large short interest which were so actively selling this future on the theory of large receipts and lack of export demand. Receipts have fallen far short of bears' expectotions, and while they are large, the milling demand is urgent enough to keep stocks from accumulating at aa alarming rate. The speculative situation still seems unchanged. We feel would continue to buy wheat on recessions. Corn This market was strong in sympathy with other pits, and maud quite a little headway, retaining the greater part of it. We feel the short interest is larger and is being encouraged by the continued favorable weather for maturing the crcp. We would rather buy corn on. the set-backs, as feel there is too much company on the other side. ' Oats Firm, up sharply for this mar, Set under general commission house buying. Trade was broader and market generally speaking offered more encouragement than for some time. On the set-backs, we feel friendly to oats, but for the present would eontiaue taking moderate profits. Provisions Clewed practically unchanged, with little weakaeas develop-,ed being altogether ia the January staff. It continues to be a liberal packers' market. ' J. O. LONBDALE CO. attitudo of interior holders. i,an. ators appear to be passive for the time being, pending fresh developments. There have been rumors today that the bear mauer was cleaning up nig lines prepara tory to a vacation, but there seems to be little basis for the report and in our opinion there is still a powerful short interest outstanding. Neither do we think that the Wan street bulls have liquidated ana aoout tne only movement in the market since the opening seems to arise from rumors regarding the attitude of these in terests. The steady cables, reports of firm holders and the purchases in Fall River of 200,000 pieces of regulars at an advance of l-8c, helped the market at the opening and first prices were 3 to 5 points higher. Later there was a decline to about 2 to 4 ponts net lower on liquidation and bear pressure followed by a rally to a shade over last night on covering. which in turn, gave way to renewed pressure the early afternoon when prices were about unchanged to 8 points lower. Business was very quiet. Our advances from the south point to a refusal to market below 10c on the present bulk of holders. Some cotton may be coming out absorbed, after which the strength of the majority of holders will assert itself. We are now approaching the frost period more nearly and an early frost would put anothei face on crop es timates. Taking altogether, therefore, It still seems wise to scalp the market on the long side. W. C. COTTER s CO. OOTTEB'8 GOSSIP. Hubbard Bros, ft Co., New York Many shorts covered yesterday looking forward to a substantial Improvement as a result of the expected demand from spinners. This buying has been the main support to the market. B. I". C, New York O. C. Cowan, promi nent spot man, says: "According to Mr. Hester, the consumption of American cot-tee fro at September to September was 11.- 900,000 bales of the heaviest crop ever grown, the average weight being 616 pounds. As the increased consumption! was not under way until the season was ten months old, the consumption since Novem ber 1. 1904, has been at the rate of 234.000 bales per Week, or 12,168,000 per year. Spinners held on September 1, 1905, about one month's supply. The amount of old crop hold by planters waa normal. The visible supply was 1.600.000 bales. If this crop should prove to be 11300.000 bales the sup ply would be 12.600.000 bales. This would leave next September a visible supply of only 400.000 bales, with mill and plantation stocks the same as they were September 1. 1906. Ever since last spring when the mills ceased taking as much as 224,000 bales per week, they have been encroaching on their reserves 30.000 to 70.006 bales a week." H. V. ft Co., Pine Bluff Buyers say noth ing doing; farmers will not sell. Reports from all sections to Individuals, farmers and from other sources say farmers are refusing positively to accept present prices. W. P. Brown, New York Big demand for spots from both Europe and this country. Spot sellers, however, nave to ouy rutures as a hedge, as they can not buy spots in the south at anything like as cheap basis aa they can buy futures is hedge. Actual cotton, however, will have to be bought sooner or later against these sales, which will make spot business in the south large as soon as the market resets to a price at which they are willing to sell. Now is the time for spot holders In the south to show their pluck and back ap their association. If they stand together they will win out. Nothing offered at market Trices. Our traveling renresentativa wires from Oklahoma City: Crop in north Oklahoma to this point ts very One, even better than last year. H. V. ft Co. New York wires: "The ring Is bearish and has been caught short." New York wires: "Fall, River telephones me of an advance of on print cloths, which are now quoted 3. This Is equivalent to 96 points on cotton: Spinners calling cotton and are large purchasers of futures. Sentiment is slowly growing In favor of the market." Galveston clears . 14,132 bales today, of which 7,812 go to England 6,311 coastwise. Manchester cables: "Cloths quiet, yarns ami. Stephenville, Tex. Cotton crop one-third less than last year. Wagon receipts 60 per cent less. Farmers refuse to sell at less than 10 cents. Mann New York wires: "Buying by Nor den caused the advance." New Orleans We learn from officials of the Northeastern railway that the cotton crop along their line is the worst in vears. The Illinois Central says that the crop aiong its iine is three to four weeks late and is extremely short. Liverpool cables: "The market declined on unfavorable dispatches from New York.' Mann, New Orleans It is a hesitating market. It wants to go down, but the bears are rather timid about giving it the neces sary push. New York wires: "Rumor here that Price has gone on a ten daya' vacation and tnat he covered 100,000 bales yesterday- Forecast: North and South Carolina, fair; Georgia, fair except ahowers in ex treme south tomorrow; eastern Florida, partlly cloudy, local showers tomorrow west Florida, fair tonight, showers tomorrow; Alabama and Mississippi, fair except showers tomorrow In extreme south.

The firms of Rose. Heminirwav & Rose and Cantrell A Loushboroucrh have been consolidated Into one firm, the name of wnicn is not yet annonneed. This means that two' of the strongest firms of lawyers in me state have joined their interests and business, making -a combination that will be most notable in the bar of Arkansas. The new firm will have their office in the present offices of the firm of Rose, Hemingway. Hose, in the Odd Fellow block on West Markham, across the street west from the statehouse. , Two more rooms will be added on the north to provide quarters for the increased number of members or the firm. The law business of Eosc, Hemingway & Rose is the oldest in Arkansas, dating back to 1819, when it was founded by Robert Crittenden, the first secretary of state and acting governor of Arkansas Territory. From him it passed to Ches ter Ashley, united States senator from Arkansas, who bequeathed it to Judeo Geo. C. Watkins, who was chief justice of the supreme court of Arkansas. In 18u6 Judge U. M. Rose succeeded Judge Watkins, contributing to it further distinction in being state chancellor. In 1881 his son, Hon. Geo. B. Hose, became associated with him, the firm name being U. M. Rose ft Ueo. B. Hose. In 1893 Judge W. E. Hemingway, having resigned as associate justiee of the su preme court, joined the firm which be came Rose, Hemingway & Hose, a firm known not only throughout Arkansas but by the bar of the United States. Judge; if. M. Rose has been president of the American Bar Association, many legal honors have been bestowed upon Judge Hemingway, and Hon. Ueo. B. Kose is known and honored not only as a most successful lawyer, but as a litterateur, art critic and scholar. To the older firm now comes the added energy of the younger lawyers, u. ti. Cantrell and J. Fax Loughborough, than whom there are no more popular in the bar of Little Rock. Mr. Cantrell is the son of the lute Dr. W. A. Cantrell, and Mr. Loughborough the son of the late Hon. J. M Loughborough, one of the greatest lawyers of his day. Tho firm of Cantrell ' Loughborough .has been most successful, and has won a high nicho in the history of the Arkansas bar.

Jn otherwise Impressive discourse is .more than likely to have its effect dissipated if exceeded beyond this time. Gladstone, who was a de voted and extremely punctilious church man, once advised a young curate never to exceed the twenty nil ' e limit if he would be a successful i.n-.icher. What was true in Gladstone's time is truer still today. Brevity is now recognized to be not only the soul of wit, but the soult of many other things. The telephone, the telegraph, and the cable have taught us in a most practical way tho preciousness of time. It is the day of short tilings short sermons, short let ters, short editorials, short speeches. Quick transit has ot into the blood of the age, into its thought, into its method of business, and, too often, into the course of life. Leslie 's Weekly.

Is it re-marknble to recall Lord Macaulay's re markable prophecy, mndo not quite fifty years ago, in which, in writing to an American citizen, he said: "It is quito plain that your government will never bo able to restrain a distressed and discontented majority, for with you the majority is the government, nnd has the rich, who are always a min ority, absolutely at is mercy. The day will come whon, in the stuto of New York, a muititudo of people, Homo of. whom have not had moro than half a breakfast, or expect to hnvo more than half a dinner will choose a legislature. Is it possible to doubt what sort of legislature will be chosen f On one side is a statesman preaching patience, respect for vested rights, strict observance of public faith. On the other is a demagogue, ranting about the tyranny of capitalists ami usurers, and asking why anybody should be permitted to drink champagne and to ride in a carriage while thousands of honest folks are want of necessaries. Which of the two candidates is likely to bo preferred by a working man who hears his children cry for more broad T 1 seriously appre hend that you will in some such season of adversity as I have described, do things which will prevent prosperity from re turning, "-r Jasper in Leslie s Weekly. SHALL WE LET THE ALIENS IN? Regarding immigration, some, progress toward a program may be looked for in Docembcr, when tho National ('ivic Fed oration meets in rvow tork. Twelve governors have promised to be present, and so large a number of congressmen that the results of the conference are likely to show in legislation at Washington later in the winter. The last dav will be devoted to the Oriertal question, in which, of course, the far western states have a special interest. The south gen erallv favors immigration, properly dis tributed, as does the rtiddle west, where as the seacoast is mainly in opposition. Means for excluding the diseased and otherwise unfit are agreed upon as neces sary by all. The principal leaks ut present are in Boston, Philadelphia, and the Mexican border. Of most importance for this country's welfare is physical excellence in the. hordes which it admits, and no bodily standard is likely to be too high. Foreigners who come without dis ease, but frail and ucdervitalized, furnish a surprising portion of the consump tives a few years Inter. Measures for maintaining the bodily vigor of the community, which i the foundation of all else, stand first in importance, and second comes the problem of a distribution that will . counteract the tendency of new arrivals to form in slums. The question of numbers, provided we secure sound men and women and place them rightly, is of lesser moment. Collier's. The sad intelligence was received Tuesday morning that Mrs. F. D.
