A Letter From a New York
He Thinks the Outlook for the
Suggestions as to Methods of Pack
ing the Fruit.
A General Statement of the Condition of
the Eastern Markets—Prices
Likely to Go Lower.
E. L. Goodsell, a New York dealer in
fruit, writes the following interesting
At the request of one of your leading
citizens, and appreciating the fact that
your fruit-growers and shippers cannot
be too well informed as to the methods
used here to market your products, I
send a few facts concerning the same.
New York as a market takes more
fruit from every quarter of the globe
than any other two cities of the United
States. Up to the present time your
own fruits cut no figure with us, as com
pared with what Chicago takes. From
the fact that tlie increase in consump
tion has been in three years from GO to
300 carloads, it seems very probable
that 1,000 cars will be shipped here in a
few years and marketed at profitable
prices. It is preferable that the Cali
fornia fruit trade should increase in a
natural manner, as liave all the products
of every country, as thereby new outlets
keep apace, and gluts ami bad prices are
avoided. As your readers know,the fruit
from your country comes to us in car
loads direct from Sacramento and else
where. The terminus of the Erie rail
road, by which these come, is across the
North river, in Jersey City. The train
which brings the fruit is due at 5.a.m.
Assuming this is on time, the cars con
taining the fruit are switched to a cov
ered platform, the doors of the cars un
locked, when commences our part of the
work here. Very often I put ten men
on to a car, and in thirty minutes
every package contained therein (from
four"hundred to nine hundred) has been
carefully received, placed upon my
trucks, which are driven upon the ferry
boats, running to the New York side.
From the point of arrival to my ware
house is a journey of twenty minutes.
On arriving there a large force of
porters quickly sort the different varie
ties, qualities and marks into piles or
"lots." From each "lot" is then taken
one, two or three boxes, depending on
the total number in the "lot" as samples
of the same. These samples are placed
on tables prepared especially for them,
then opened and a "lot" number marked
upon each by the buyers. The catalogue
prepared beforehand has the identical
numbers on it that have been marked
upon the "sample" boxes; hence the
purchaser simply writes opposite the
number on his catalogue the value of
these lots according to his idea of what
he is willing to pay for them. If the
car in question contains 100 "lots" of
fruit made up of tlie produce of thirty
three different owners, each having a
parcel or lot of cherries, apricots and
peaches, then there would be on the
catalogue thirty-three parcels or lots (as
we call them) of cherries, thirty-three
lots of apricots and thirty-four lots of
peaches, making up the 100 lots in ques
tion. There are engaged in handling
fruit in New York fully 10,000 dealers.
The wholesale buyers number about 200
and supply the retailers and out-of-town
The Auction Sale.
In responses to the advertisement of
this sale, which 1 insert in tbe trade
and newspapers and by direct notice
sent by mail, the wholesale trade as
sembles at my place of business to make
the purchases needed. The inspection
on the part of the buyers having been
completed, the sale commences by ask
ing for a bid for the choice or, say,
thirty-three lots of cherries, the highest
bidder having the privilege of taking one
or all of the same. Naturally, however,
the best quaility and conditioned fruit
is taken first. It is from the competi
tion arising from the desire to secure
these that the high prices, often more
than the actual market values,are made.
The same mode of action follows in dis
posing of the apricots, peaches and any
other fruits that may have been shipped.
Showing one of the advantages of the
auction system, I would say that I have
sold a car of California fruits in thirty
minutes, and the time that has been
taken between the arrival and
ultimate deliverey to the buyers, has
not exceeded two hours, an action most
essential in such perishable fruits.
That too great care cannot be taken in
packing and shipping the best grades,
properly sorted and packed, is illus
trated by the results made for A. T.
Hatch, of Suisun, who averaged $3.04
per box for 10,000 boxes of Bartlett
pears, and for R. D. Stephens, of Sacra
mento, who averaged lot 2,059 double
crates of Tokay grapes $4,91, and for
1,383 single crates $2.84; also for Wein
stock tk Lubin, who got for 1,090 double
crates Tokays $4.20, and for 2,297 single
crates $2.33 ; also for R. B. Blowers, who
averaged $4.31 for 995 double crates of
Tokay and Emperor grapes. Let every
grower remember that merit is always
recognized and paid for very liberally
in the fruit business, while the careless
shipper is treated according to the strict
market value and his deserts.
Some Important Advice.
It is impossible to give all the details
pursued in order to properly place and
distribute your products in our market
and its outlets, but that profitable re
sults and great increase in consump
tion have followed proves the value of
The future has bright prospects for a
profitable development for the California
fruit-growers, so far as New York is con
cerned. Coming at a season when other
near by-grown products are not matured,
and when our market is bare of any
great variety of fruit, your products are
now eagerly looked for here. For the
complete success and best results, the
grower must make up his mind to spare
no pains to cultivate, pack and ship the
best fruits only. Throw away the in
ferior, and you will get more for what
you ship of the best than for double the
quantity where the inferior grades are
allowed to go in. Further co-operation
and concerted action on the part of
growers and shippers are necessary, for
the reason that supplies to all markets
may be regulated and "gluts" avoided.
Having visited every fruit country in
the world, I am sure I am justified in
saying that with an energetic class of
producers,and with such soil as California
possesses, her power and wealth in a
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD; MONDAY MORNING, JTOE 23, 1890.
few years will more than equal any two
states in the union.
A time nil Summary.
A recent issue of the San Francisco
Bulletin gives the following excellent
summary of the outlook for the fresh
fruit industry of this season :
New York dispatches quote various
dealers in fruit as speaking most encour
agingly of the prospective market this
season for fresh fruit from this state. A
light peach crop in Delaware and other
fruit crop troubles east are the basis for
the dealers' prediction. This is consid
ered California's opportunity, and it is
pleasing to know that without doubt
tier producers will meet it, in a measure,
although all varieties of fresh fruit here
will by no means be as abundant as us
ual. Reports indicate large crops of
pears and peaches, apricots fair, grapes
abundant, plums, prunes and almonds
light. The Fruit Union began shipping
cherries a few weeks ago, and daily they
are sending small consignments of apri
cots. One thing that may prevent the
shipping of as much fruit east as may be
wanted, and the relief of the predicted
fruit famine there, may be the apparent
late season. The heavy late rains have
made the ripening season generally late.
The first dried apricots went forward
from Fresno yesterday, but this is two
weeks later than usual. This lateness
may result in sending too much fruit
eastward at one time. Considering all
points bearing on the situation it would
seem the wise thing for growers to sell
their fruit at the fair prices satisfactory
in previous years, for there is the danger
that by holding off for high prices a drop
resulting from an overstocked market
may be met with.
Lusk & Cos. views-
President Jacobs of Lusk & Co., who
ship fresh fruit as well as can and dry
it, predicts that one-third less fruit will
go east this year than last. This, in his
judgment, will result from the late
season, large demand and fictitious value
of dried fruit, stimulated by the drying
here in preference to shipping, and from
the large demand for canning fruit. He
thinks prices here now are higher than
the eastern market warrants. He
quoted a possible 9 3 8 -cent rate on boxed
prunes, delivered, to • New York dealer,
and the response wired back yesterday
was: "Your packers are crazy." A
Baltimore firm notes that the crop pros
| pects there are dubious, but shrewd
guessers here think these eastern short
crop agitators are interested in bulling
A circular sent out yesterday from a
local shipping firm to eastern agents has
this to say of the general fruit outlook
here: "We believe that the output of
apricots and peaches will be at least
one-third more than last year. Raisins
will be one-third more than last year.
Dried grapes will only be one-half of
last year's output. "Prunes will be
three-fourths of a crop, with the strong
| probabilities of turning out as many
pounds as last year, as they will run to
large sizes and make up in quality and
size the shortage on the trees caused by
the drop. Almonds will not be over
one-half of last year's crop. Walnuts
will be one-third more."
It is said that the packers and buyers
are paying altogether too high prices for
prunes. Tariff agitation, also, affects
the prune prices. Dried grapes will be
short,as wineries are paying good prices.
The Los Nietos walnut crop has been
sold at high figures. Apricots will be
good. In conclusion, it is said, that it
is uphill work in all fruit lines this year
and some local competitors are harshly
considered insane because of their
methods. "They go off on a tear," it is
said, "and offer any prices even if they
are above what they can, at the remotest
idea, ever expect to obtain. They see a
| small section in which the crop is"short,
and not realizing that this is a large
I state, they rush off with their hair
I standing on end, and make purchases at
exorbitant and unreasonable figures,
I thereby exciting the producers to de
mand the same figures of everyone, or
hold on to their product. These people
have made liberal purchases of dried
apricots at as high a figure as V2K, cents
here from producers, expecting to sell
them through their brokers east at a
profit. They have made purchases of
other things in the same proportion."

WANTS A FRANCHISE.
The L. A. Electric Light Co. After
The Los Angeles Electric Light Com
pany has come to the conclusion that it
! desires a franchise. It has by its presi
dent, W. B. C line, filed an application
for a franchise, alleging that on Sep
tember 9th, 1882, through Chas. H.
Howland, it contracted with the council
to light the city, and ever since that
time it has conducted business but has
never had a franchise. The matter will
come up before the council today, at its
When the Deaf Can Hear.
It is said that a man severely afflicted
with deeafness can hear when riding in
a rumbling car. The philosopey of this
phenomenon, as stated by an aurist, is
due to the well-known counteraction of
the noisy motion on the drum of the
ear—that is the rumble of the heavy
wheel on the track causes the drum to
vibrate, and in this way producing or
exciting the capacity to hear. Instead
of raising the voice when speaking to a
deaf person in a moving car or vehicle,
the voice should be low. —[New York

Protests Against the Grades Estab
A protest against the one in ten grade
of First street will come up in the coun
cil today. It is not thought that there
will be a sufficient number of protestants
to stop the work. In regard to the es
tablishing of the grade of Second street
from Olive street west to Bellevue ave-.
nue, the city engineer will report that
there will be no necessity of drawing tbe
ordinance, as enough protestants have
made known their wishes to stop the
work. This will, it is said, leave the
west-end people in as bad a fix as they
are at present. It has been suggested
that lots be purchased on each side of
the hills, and that a tunnel be con
structed by private parties.
