OYSTERS HERE AGAIH
Juicy Eastern Bivalve Inaugur
ates Coming Season in
SOUNDS EXIT OF PANAMA LTD
Straw Hata Must Now Be Abolished,
for Custom Will Not Tol
This week will bear the earmarks
of autumn. It will be signalized by
the reappearance of the oyster and
the disappearance of the Panama.
In a few days every corner grocery,
every meat and fish market and all
the cafes, restaurants and hotels
will advertise the advent of the juicy
bivalve and epicures will begin their
first gastronomical and critical at
tacks on the shellfish.
The -supply this year, according to
advices from the east, will be par
ticularly good and it will also be un
limited, as the oyster beds will fur
nish millions more than the usual
supply. The effect of tne large sup
ply will be mat low prices will pre
vail for the ordinary brands, while
the best oysters will not go above
T. A. Docker of A. Rooth & Co., of
Chicago, says that there will be a
larger yield than usual this year
from the southern oyster beds. The
southern supply, he says, is getting
larger every year and is becoming a
large factor in the oyster market.
"Wo expect our first authoritative
advices from Haltimore on the oyster
situation Tuesday," aid Mr. Decker.
I cannot state exactly concerning
prices, as they are as yet indefinite,
but a day or two will toll the story.
The oyster season always opens reg
ularly and quickly-the first of every
September. This year there is going
to be a large supply. Of course Chi
cago's principal source of supply will
be Haltimore. Haltimore controls
prices and the advices 011 the oyster
market ooine from that city. Now
York will also furnish Chicago with
a large quantity this year."
When asked whether there was
anything in the reports of an "oyster
trusi" this season Mr. Decker denied
any knowledge of any such combine.
