liooal jobbers have made unusual efforts to
lay in seasonable goods for the holidays end
the rauge of varieties Is larger than for several
jriurs jmst. Florida oranges have been a scarce
commodity unoii this market since the freeze
no In that state several years ago. but this
make them a favorite anil the trade is buying
them freely. Mexicans are in generous supply.
California is urging in heavy shipments, both
of navels and seedlings, and of good quality for
uch early arrivals. Japanese persimmons are
Klw in market, but the public taste has not yet
boen educated up to a heavy consumption. Grapss
are moving out freely, being a standard with
northwestern consumers. Cranberries show a
steady advance, with tudieatlons that the limit
has not yet been reached. Sweet potatoes hold to
a Ann basis. Bananas are unchanged in price
- nd will be in heavy supply for the holiday sea
on. Apples show a shade lower range in price,
knt'will undoubtedly firm up as soon as goods
|n common storage are out of the way. The
biggest tr:ide ever know on new nuts, ligs and
dates is reportable. Country dealers generally
are anticipating a large demand' and loading up
on these lines accordingly.'
The butter market semes to have reached top
on all lines. Values hove held steady all the
week, but some effort has been required to pre
vent sagging features coming out. The make
has not Increased, but the supply of cooler stock
Is very heavy, and Is bound to have a depress
ing inf.uer.ee upon the future. f
Eggs are firm. The cold weather will have i
tendency to reduce production, and- the demand
will hold to normal proportions until values
reach a prohibitive basis. Cooler stock is going
Into the hands of restaurant, baker ami hotel
trade, and givinc good, satisfaction, although
not bringing as high prices as anticipated earlier
In the season.
The dressed meat market has weakened during
tin* past few days. Veal receipts have been very
heavy and more or les. of an accumulation is In
Right this morning. Mutton is lower, more,
largely due to the fact that packers have forced
out iieaTy supplies than to any excess of country
receipts. Fish market is .higher, receipts, being
extremely moderate. Arrivals of rabbits are
n.ovlng out freely. Poultry shows peculiar con
ditions. Turkeys are very high and it can hardly
be expected that values will hold up around pres
ent figures for the Christmas trade. A year ago
to-day fancy dressed tnrkejs were quoted at
Ik- per lb, as against i:Vjft14 to-day. Whether
conditions will warrant such high values remains
to be seen. Evidently country buyers are hold
ing back stock in hopes of a still higher price.
While it is not the intention or desire to predict
the future, a careful study of conditions points
to the possibility that the holder of turkeys who

Passing the Top Figures for Eigh
teen MonthsA Brisk Holiday
Holiday Business in Sight.
New York, Dec. o.Bradstreet's for the week
Seasonable winter weather, hitherto conspicu
ously lacking, has come very much into evidence
this week, with the result of expanding retail
trade in whiter goods, rubbers and wearing
apparel generally. Killing frosts have about put
a period to the marvelous fall season of 1002.
and in the south the cotton crop may be said to
be made, so far as further growth is concerned.
AH the usual seasonable changes have about
come to pass. The dairy products and produce
generally are higher, lake navigation Is about
over, iron ore shipments have ended after the
greatest movement on record, and the wheat
crop lias gone into winter quarters, with a fair
covering of snow in northern latitudes and with
a very general satisfaction ruling through much
of the admittedly large acreage.
"Hessian fly damage to some of the early sown
and too rank growth la the southwest are the
only complaints beard of. Threshing is about
completed In the northwest and farmers display
more willingness to part with their products.
Cold weather from now on is needed to Insure the
largo amount of corn expected as the result of
rxjiort and borne demand.
"The year's approaching end finds prices well
up to the highest point in eighteen months,
though meats, an Important element in food
supplies, are steadily declining on good re
ceipts. Xext to the expectations, already partly
realized, that an enormous holiday business wiil
he done, the most notable feature is the prac
tical unanimity of opinion that a large ship
ping trade is in-prospect, ground for this being
furnished by the unprecedented volume of such
business already booked.
The feature In the foreign business Is the turn
in corn exports, which have at last begun to
expand after fifteen months of scarcity, high
prices and trifling shipments.
"In the wholesale dry goods, good spring trade
acts as a supporting feature for some lines, but
it Is noted that poor exior business" has affect
ed brown and bleached cottons, which can be had
at easier quotations. Wool Is strong and aetive
and still tends higher, while the manufacturers
are busy on orders. Shoes are in better demand

.are quiet as yet and eastern shipments 10 per
cent behind last year. Hides are rather weaker
as the receipts increase, but good, desirable
leather is firmly held.
"Iron trade conditions are qxiieter, in keeping
with seasonable changes. ' This quieting down
has strengthened the feeling prices are to rule
at next year, and hence all buyers who can af
ford to hold off are doing so. Foreign iron still
holds the balance of power in the east, but the
control is not expected to continue long. Wes
tern furnaces are in better shape to do work,
the breaking of the freight congestion helping
coke supplies, but this fuel is still far from
plentiful. Foundry iron is slightly lower for
next month's delivery and it is noted that spot
supplies of southern iron still bring $23, while
contracts for the last half of 1903 are being
made at $19. Steel rails are still actively in
demand. Hardware is still quite active, a fea
ture being liberal ordering for next spring's de

FLAX CHOP FIGUKES
The Northwest Raised 25,000,000
Bu. for Market, Says Duluth
Not More Than 70 Per Cent Has
Been Moved in to Terminal
Points to Bate.
Duluth. Dec. 6.The Dally Commercial Rec
ord of this city, which makes a specialty of
flax, had the following lii its last Issue with
reference to the flax movement of the crop year
to Dec. 1:
The detailed flax movement to Minneapolis and
Duluth given below gives one a fair approxima
tion of what to expect from now on, and con
firms beyond question the low crop estimates pre
Leaving Chicago receipts out of consideration,
as the tendency has been to draw more and more
from the northwest, and treating tie-northwest
separately, we find that on the 1890 crop Duluth
and Minneapolis to Dec. 1 had received 88.8 per
cent of the total, from Aug. 1 to the following
August. In 1000, 78 per cent had arrived by Dec.
1, and last year 71.1 per cent.
Taking each year separately, it will be 'remem
bered that in 1899 weather conditions during
September, October and'November were extreme
ly favorable to the movement. This entire north
western country was short beyond the actual
amount raised. Owners of flax thought the price
too high anyway, and consequently could not
get the flax to terminals too quick, and by Dec.
1 the movement was practically finished.
The year 1900 was the rainy year. It rained
all of September and half of October. The short
Interest in October here had advanced the price
to $1.88 and the country was doing the best it
could to get flax in. The fact that.only 78 per
cent was received by Dec. 1 was because: a large
part of the balance was under the anow or still
Last year the country was fairly anxious to
get and keep flax moving, and on Dec. 1 the
interests In control thought the percentage moved
was fully up to the previous average, and the
movement that year more nearly represents
the normal movement than the two previous
This year, however, we know that flax: is being
held to a larger extent than ever before, and
we feel entirely warranted in- making the as
sertion that not 70 ier cent of the flax crop
has been moved to terminals. On this "basis the
two markets will receive 26,000,000 bushels, as
comoared with 21,643,000- bushels last year.
If we allow 1,000,000 bushels as duplicated
from Minneapolis to Duluth, a liberal estimate, it
loks as if the northwest had raised 25,000,000
bushels of flax for market.
Add to this 3.000,000 bushels from Iowa and
the southwest, and you have 28,000,000 bushels.
Our minimum estimates were 26,000,000 to 27,-
000,000 bushels, and we believe the 28,000,000-
bushel figure below rather than above what the
total will prove to be.
