As a result of an investigation into
territorial bonding payments, made at
the instance of Governor Pinkham
through his secretary and Territorial
Attorney I. M. Stainback and W. H.
Heen, It Is likely that radical changes
will be proposed to the legislature
next spring for lessening the bonding
bills of the territory. Two plans are
now under consideration either to
extend the present territorial fund
which now covers Are insurance to
include bonding insurance as weJl, or
to provide some system of competition
whereby bonding rates will be decreased.

New Drunswick in 1832, he had a va

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER
The holiday trade for island poultry,
suckling pigs and other produce
should begin to receive the attention
of the local producres. Arrangements
should be made at this time for get
ting all products in the best possible
shape in order that the highest prices
may be realized. This year, instead
of Bending down thin turkeys or chic
kens or suckling pigs right from the
ranch, pen them up, and feed them
a little corn or mill-food. It will pay
you even at the excessive prices ask
ed for feed stuffs at this time., In
order to know what a farmer should
get for his produce two or three
months hence, it is necessary for the
division to know how much of each
article is to be offered for sale. In
order to get this Information it is ne
cessary for each producer to notify the
division how many turkeys, geese,
or ducks he will have for sale during
For Instance, two years ago turkeys
were unsually plentiful and sold
for 30 cents a pound, wholesale. A
good many of these birds were held by
the producers because there was no
market, even at this low price. Had
the producers notified the division In
advance, instead of at the last min
ute, a great number of imported birds
could have been kept out of the
market. Indications are that this will
be a good year for the local pro-
duceres of poultry. Young geese and
ducks should be in demand as well as
turkeys and chickens. Old stock will
be hard to sell during the holidays.
Capins will also be in demand.
At the present time, cabbage, corn
and beans are very scare and
command good pries. ' The last of the
island Bermuda onion crop has been
sold. Sweet potatoes, after a scarcity
of ,a few months, are now becomming
plentiful, and the prices are dropping.
