tors. A brief and unimportant trusting of the

headquarters this morning, as usual. This waa
an off day nt the strike headquarters, and only
a few committees reported. They told of SjOOgg*

the B nth Water Street Commercial Club has

a committee has been appointed t.> have present
at the meeting all actual dealers and receivers.
Shippen, broken, C 'Id-storage men and railroad
it'.-n int-re?ted In the trade and the claims. It
ls estimated on the street that the claims will
aggregate IS00.004, and that the losses of the com?
mission men direct and indirect, would not bs
less than Sl.i'00.000.
The eff.-ct on the California fruit trade has

to move eastward in twelve days e art. -1 yester*.
day. In the four days preceding the Fourth of
Juiy there wire ninety cars of bananas on the
way t - Chicago, a large part of which never
reached here.
Andher great cause of loss was that outside
shippers got the Idea that there was going to be
a famine here, and begun to rush In perishable
ft eight which never reached Chicago dealers
and which ls now scattered all over the country,
a deal loss. One prominent dealer was asked to?
night what legal standing the claims to be mads
would have. Ile answered:
I was In New-York during the troubles of 1S7T.
We shipped West a carload ot lemon* which were

ceived .* dollar from the railroad company, hut *&
sued him and he paid our bill. Possibly that will
be the case with the claims hero. I am satisfied
that over $1,000,000 has been lost, but I am not
satisfied how the railroads ar. to be compelled to
ute for conBlgnmenta which rotted on the tracks,
