WEEKLY MARKET REPORT.
The markets the past week do not
show any very marked change from
the usual run. A large shipment ar
rived in Seattle on Tuesday from San
Francisco, but the principal commodity
was grapes. The merchants had look
ed for a big quantity of apples, but
were disappointed, as there was but a
small consignment. The demand for
apples has continued good and the
price rules good. Shipments from
Washington points are expected to sell
There is a good demand for potatoes
now, the spuds having taken a rise
]i^ffly. Local consignments sell at
~ima\ $17 to $18, while Yakimas bring
as much as $20. Not much is sent in
from outside the state, and farmers are
holding their crop in the expectation
of a rise shortly.
Hay and grain have been practically
stationary, as compared with the quo
tations last week, the former bringing
$8 to $10 for Puget Sound stuff and $12
to $15 for Eastern Washington timo
Butter and eggs are quoted at the
same figures as last week, but ' the
tendency of butter prices is to rise and
before another week the figure is like
ly to be higher than now. Eggs have
a vast difference between the quota
tions for ranch and eastern stock, the
former, which is hard to get, selling
at 30c, and a few consignments having
secured 31c. The ruling price is 29c.
Poultry is not making much head
way now. The market is well sup
plied and a carload came in two days
,a» from Nebraska, containing about
M* fowls. They are not in good con
dition and the quality is below what
is wanted on the Seattle markets. The
firm that brought them in will not
make much out of the shipment, if any
