WEEKLY MARKET LETTER
Since raising the prire of eggs to
40c a dozen the demand has not been
so active so that the price had to be
dropped to 30c in order to move them.
The quotation on No. 1 eggs should be
35c instead of 37c as listed.
There is good demand for poultry
except Muscovy ducks which are plen
tiful. Green string beans are plentiful at
the present time and the price is like
ly to drop below present quotations.
The new crop of dried beans will begin
to come in next month. Cabbage is in
good demand. There will be several
hundred bags of Island Irish potatoes
coming into the market In a week or
Cucumbers are more plentiful than
for several months and the price is
likely to drop still lower.
A large part of the alligator pears
now being received from the other Is
lands are shipped in barrels and big
packing cases. It is rot uncommon
for several hundred pears to be pack
ed in one case. Upon arrival in Hono
lulu the pears are more or less cooked
due to a lack of ventilation. It might
save a large amount of the present
loss to the shippers if they would
pack their fruit in excelsior and ship
in smaller crates. Experiments are
now being conducted by the Division
in cooperation with shippers. Thous
ands of limes are in the market now
and local consumers would do well to
take advantage of the reduced price
and use them in their homes instead
of lemons. Lemons cannot be raised
in the Territory with success but
limes grow well and can be used for
every purpose for which the lemon Is
imported. Help out home industry
anil at the same time help reduce the
high cost of living.
The Division lias revoral inquiries
from the Coast for honey and all bee
Vr criers who have l.o'iey on hand
ho'iLl send to the Division a quart
SoMe cf each kind, giving number of
capes, the date they could ship, etc.
The price at present is about 2c a lb.
