The Orange Market Affected
by the Weather
As the Temperature Rises Demand for
Fruit Increases
Prosperous Condition of the Fruit HYchanges.
Notes About the .Tovement of
the Crop
Los AXGILSJB, Feb. 18.
The opening of the week finds the fruit ex
changes busier than ever. hi proportion as
the tcmpersture risen at the East, the demand
for oranges increases, l itis seems to be tho
condition, at least, us evidenced by the re
ceipt of orders since the blizzard subside!.
No ohjeetion is ever made. :o the exchanges'
prices by eastern buyers, exeapt now and then
at a point where ft "floater*' is unloaded by a
Shipper outside the exchanges st cut rate
figures Dsuftllf this fruit is reported to tho
trs.de Afi fancy Riverside or Redlands, when In
lad it consists 01 odd sizes or is fruit Irom the
I oast district* At the prices paid Riverside
and Redlands ffrowers, shippers outside the
Ixchangescan not sell under the exchanges'
f. o. b. schedule and make money. Where cut
ting is done by the outsiders, the exchanges*
customers ask protection Rgainst it In the
nature of a similnr redaction. This is always
refused. In no case have the exchanges
shaded their prices or sent out floaters this
season and they say they do not intend to do
so. While they lose an occasional order by re
fusing to meet reductions made by a com
petitor. It does not worry them, as they arc
perfectly confident that they can soil all the
fruit controlled by them 'four-fifths of the en
tire crop) at the prices now demanded.
The exchange system is growing in favor
with the producers. The results attained
thus for arc highly satisfactory. The cost of
marketing the fruit is relived to the mini
mum, prices are kept up '.md the growers get
profits instead of the middlemen. So success,
fu! is the system as applied to the orange crop,
that the deciduous trait growers are taking
stent tdorganise for the purpose Of marketing
tins year's crop in the same manner.
The walnut growers are already organized
and have found the system a great benefit to
them. The dried fruit men, beekeepers, dairy
men and other producer* are also talking of
co-operative marketing.
Las.week a prominent raisin grower of Han
ford, Kings county, was In the city fo: the
special purpose of studying the exchange sys
tem, tie said iiamord and vicinity produce
about 150 carloAds ot raisins annually, for
which the growers hardly receive the cost of
production, while raisins are retailed iv east
ern cities at !S(g,Ji cents a pound. The gen
tleman from Hanford said the raisin growers
bad allowed the middlemen to grow rich at
their expense, and now tlicv propose to make
a little money for themselves if there is any
viMue in the co-operative system of market
Last Saturday the Ontario Fruit Kxchange
declare 1 a dividend of 2 cents a pound on
fancy navels shipped to date, and i} 3 cents for
choice. These figures represent only part of
the net price the growers will receive for the
s.ason's crop. Subsequent dividends and the
final settlement Will no doubt etichauce the
growers' receipts considerably.
Trade st Ontario, and in fact at all the
nrsnge centers, is beginning to feel the stimu
lating effect of the money put inlo circulation
by the moving of the orange crop.
President Story of the san Diego Fruit Ex
change was in the city Saturday and Sunday.
He says San Diego Is stirpaislpg herself this
year in the quality of her fruit. Tiie lemon
crop is exceptionally fine, not the least
bleinisn marking any of the product. The Sau
Diego exchange embraces nearly all the
grower! of 11,111 imperial county and will
handle ibout lOOcarlonds of oranges this sea
son. One man at Fallbrook alone has about
ten carloads,
Mr. Story estimates the San Diego lemon
crop at 300 carloads, lemons having been
planted In that county much more extensively
than oranges. There are about HOC,OOO lemon
trees in the county, most of them be'.ng quite
young. When all come into full bearing tbe
output will be enormous, Tue excellent qual
ity of the San D ego lemons is beginning to
be appreciated not only on the Pacific coast,
but at tin East, where they, along wiih the
iemons ol other Southern California counties,
will in tine crowd foreign lemons out of the
market, is they have already done on this
jiccii good raurr.
The qutlily and condition ol the fruit in
every nook aud corner of the citrus belt is pro
nounced Übe better than ever befoie known.
San Fernaido, ior instance, which has hereto
fore not beau conspicuous as an orange dis
trict, is tbl year producing fruit that compares
favorably nltb that of nearly any other sect.on
of southern California.
The excellence ol Hie I'aßadena crop this
rear Is atested by the fact thai wherever tbe
Pasadena iiangc Association has placed a ear
ol fruit, Unorder has immediately been dupli
hie situation at rivera.
A F.ivera lorrespouilent says the orange in

Says the lowney Cliampiou: Owing to the
extreme coldweather tn the East, orange pack

people He tinds by actual experience that he
can sell cured prunes at 3 cents a pound, f. o.
v , in sacks and make $100 per acre from his
orchard, besides allowing $37 per acre for cul
tivation and other costs of production; and
this calculation is based on an annual crop of
only one-half his average crop tor the past four

The Day's Transactions on the Chicago Board
of Trade.
Chicago, Feb. 18.—At the opening the wheat
pit was flooded with selling orders at!£c be
low Saturday's closing prices. The latest trad
ing on Saturday was at 52;! 8 e for May and at
02f-ga and there were evon more sellers than
buyers at s^ B o, so tbat 52 became almost im
mediately the trading price.
An anticipated decrease in the visible stocks
since a week ago, 3,000,000 bushels, was a
potent bear factor. The Northwestern re
ceipts weje 150 carloads more than those of
the corresponding day a year ago. A gre-M
deal of long whest was again offered on the
break, and although at around [email protected]|92|{C,
local shorts covered abundantly, there was
little reaction during the first hour and a halt
of the session.
The visible supply soon began to give evi
dence of a larg r decrease than had been
looked for, tun! when the decrease was ulti
mately found to amount to 1,598,000, or three
times as much as many had expected, the
shorts commenced taking back the wheat they
had unloaded. From being quiet and weak,
the price gradually hardened.until about two
hours from the opening it recovered to 52!-4"c.
Primary market altogether received 209,000
bushels against 149,000 a week ago and 280,
--000 a year ago. The English visible supply
showed a decrease of 800,000 bushels following
a decrease of 1,4-.*0,000 on the previous week
and New York reported a good business done
there for export. The prico advanced hereto
62f£e and closed at 52? 8 e.
Corn was weak at the beginning. Later,
when wheat had recovered from Its early drop!
corresponded to the change in tone of its
neighbor as well to the result of the visib •
supply statement, which showed a decrease of
233,000 bushels since last Monday, and com
pared with an increase of 7?5,000 a year ago.
The opening sales of May were at 4434 c, at
which price it closed.
Trading In oats was very scattered and only
of fair volume. May started at from 28U to
26% sold to to 20, at which price the market
Provisions started as weak as the grain
markets, but soon faced about aud wound up
higher all around. At tho Un sh May pork

A Heavy Tone Characterizes Speculation In
Wall Street
New York, Fob. 18.—The week opened on
the Stock Exchange with a heavy tone to the
speculation, which was due to the depres
sion in American securities on the Londuti
market. There was foreign selling iv the in
ternational stocks, chiefly in St. Paul and Erie.
The discussion in the United Slates Senate Sat
urday on the silver question had a disquieting
effect in this ai well as in the London stock
market, and imparted an unit tiled tone to
The coal shares were weak, and of the active
list Delaware end Hudson sold off 2U from the
opening price. New Jersey Central broke 1%,
rose2end reacted ',; Delaware,
and Western declined \% aud reacted Read
ing was Deflected, only 4QO shares being I Id,
the stock receding % and regaining } x . The
heaviness of these shares was due t > rumor-,
unfavorable to trade prospects, of which ttie
bears took advantage- to raid the properties.
Compared with tbe prices of about a mon'h
ago, the low point of today shows a de precis
lion of \'l l 2 percent in New Jersey Centra!, 10
per cam tri Lackawanna and 8' 4 in Delaware
and lludsoi.
The geiii ral list was irregular throughout
th j day, but in the last hour the market came
iuto belter tone. The tinai ligures made a re
covery comput ed with Saturday's closing quo
tations, bin iv a majority of cases are higher,
notably Cordage guaranteed.
There was a muuerate amount of business in
tbe bond market today. Total sales, $732,500.
The changes were insignificant.
