Prices For Island
Pineapples Bring Better Figure
Hawaiian Rice Now Being Sold on
Coast. Peanuts Hard to Sell.
November 8, 191.". Good fat poul
try of all classes, except Muscov&r
durks are In pxeat demand and prices
are good. The consumption of Mus
covy ducks is increasing but has not
yet caught up with the production.
The Division has largo quantities on

The price of Island corn is low and
the Division Is still holding several
tons. Unless conditions improve dur
ing the coming week the corn will be
sold at the best price obtainable.
Island peanuts are hard to'sellat
this time, due to competition with
large quantities of peanuts received
from the Orient.
The dressed meat market remains
about the same, but live hogs dropped
a little during the week.
Mainland shipments are increasing
in the variety of the articles shipped.
By the steamer this week there was
shipped 1149 crates of pineapples, 10
crates Japanese taro, 5 crates water
lily roots, 250 bags of rice, 59 bunches
bananas and a few bags of cocoanuts
as samples. The returns from one lot
of bananas shipped to San Francisco
netted the grower 70c a bunch. These
bunches were large having eight
hands or more. Smaller bunches bring
proportionately less, while the freight
is just as high.
Reports from the mainland indicate
that pineapples are bringing a better
price. A great many pineapples are
being sold through express companies
who are advertising pineapples in
every town of any importance
throughout tho United States.
Due to the fact that there is an
over supply of Island rice an outlet
Is being found on the coast for a few
thousand bags. The price is not as
high as it should be owing to a large
quantity of Honduras rice being pro
duced. San Francisco dealers also
claim that there is too high a per
centage of broken kernels in Hawai
ian milled rice.
