I'otatoea, Onions and Vegetables
The I.os Angeles growing districts are now the
principal source of supply for tender garden,
vegetables, a:id although the season baa hardly
started, receipts aro already running free. Ship
pers are taking advantage of the express steamer
service from the south and are forwarding a
large percentage of thetr consign menu by water,
with the result that the market Is always well
d. Prices fluctuate morn or less eTery \
day. and thus far the general tendency seems
to be downward. Tomatoes and green jieppers
*n» still coming forward from net-by districts,
but tbe supply In this region Is about exhausted.
Potato handlers continue to report a good busi
ness in river Buxbanks. there being a general
disposition among small tradesmen and consum
ers to lay In supplies for the winter while prices
are low.

Deciduous and Citrus Fruits
Two more cars of new navel oranges came in
to local commission merchants yesterday and
several arrived overnight for export to the
Hawaiian Islands. Prices settled down to more
reasonable levels than quoted on the preceding
day, as the fruit was not any too well colored*
and receivers were making the quotations at
tractive to invite trade. The large sises— say
64s to 100s—were held at $2.50<&3, while smaller
fruit was quoted at $3.25®3.50. Grape fruit,
Valencia oranges and lemons were all in free
supply, with prices showing little change. Re
ceipts of grapes have been dwindling steadily
since the rains and the market is keeping well
cleaned up on choice dry lots. Prices for all
varieties are moving upward slowly and the best
selections of muscats In lugs are commanding a
premium. Arrivals of berries are light and they
are showing the effects of the late rains, being
mostly muddy and generally unattractive. Poor
!o;s have to be tunvd over to the canners st low
rates, while the trade readily pays fancy prices
for the pick of the arrivals. Figs ere dragging
badly at low rates, as the trade seems to have
tfreci of them. The apple market iscommencing
to show some improvement in the matter of
sales, but no one is expecting prices to do any
better for some time to

Dried Kruit, Haisins, Nuts and Honey
The low basis prices quoted for prunes during
the last few weeks has had the expected effect of
stimulating business and the market is now fir
ing out symptoms of InepiWvement. The basis
price for Santa Claras is a quarter of a cent
higher and it Is said that som» operators are
asking a larger premium for 30s, which are
closely cleaned up. Peaches continue to

Hay and Feedfctuffs
Sotners & Co.. in their weekly 'review of the
hay situation, say: "The local hay trade has
been very quiet during the week. Receipts
amount" <1 to 2.145 tons—about the same quantity
ns received last week. Practically »ll of the
arrivals were grain hay. there being very little
nifalfa received. The river districts are cleaned
up and occasional shipments are coming to baud
by rail.
"The report of the San Francisco Hay associa
tion, showing the stocks of hay on hand in
tbe country November I, lihs recently befn
issued. This report shows a total of 15T.700

it would seem that the present stocks are ample

• for all requirements and there need be no
cause for alarm concerning the feed situation.
especially aa there la very little export business
and tbe government Is bringing In supplies for
local needs from Washington. Furthermore, tbe
dry season last year necessitated heavy feeding
of hay, while tbia year there is promise «f
ample green feed. Price* may fluctuate some
what durlqg the year, advaucing or declining
ac immediate conditions may warrant, but we
do not »e-o any occasion for a general advance
unless, of course, we should have a dry saasoa.
To date the weather lias been most favorable,

MISCELLANEOUS MARKETS
Cotton Market
NEW YORK, Nov. 12.— J. C. Wilson _ Co.
say:
•'Prices displayed a firmness which arguesl
a firm undertone founded ou the continued good
demand from spinners at home and abroad. They
bought, not only the actual cotton at the south,
sometimes on an exceptionally high basis for
white cotton, but they also bought futures here
with a free band. Liverpool news, needless to
say, was better than expected. The snap vote
in the house of commons yesterday does not
mean that the liber.il ministry will resign.
"Spot news from Georgia. Alabama and North
Carolina was bullish. Some of the large spot
interests were buying January snd May freely.
Room shorts covered precipitately when they
saw the drift of the days news. Some Waldorf
elements were believed to have covered at one
time. Later on a drive was made at the mar
ket which produced some impression for a time,
but when this pressure was removed prices
seemed to advance of their own accord. Though
it is rather more of a two sided affair than re
cently, the undertone looks firm. Reactions may
be expected. Buy on good reactions. Spot
closed quiet and unchanged. Middling uplands,
12.30 c; do gulf. 12.45 c. No sales."
Owing to wire trouble, C. F. lluffmi _ Co.'s

EIGHT HOUR LAW
RIGIDLY OBSERVED
State Labor Commissioner Sat
isfied With General Atti
tude of Employers
_s«lß3_*nfc_ "This office 1$ sat-
Jsfled at this
time," said State
Labor Commissioner John P. McLaugh
lin yesterday, "that tiie eight hour law
for women in this state la pretty gen
erally observed. This conclusion has
been reached by reason of the fact that
only a few complaints arc received. "We
have an isolated case now and then,
and it Is immediately attended to. A
few days ago we had a complaint of
this character and It was found that
the individual endeavored to set him
self above the, law by telling the
deputy that he could go where there is
no eight hour law for women and take
the law with him. The deputy did not
go to tne place Indicated, but visited
the prosecuting officer of the county,
had the individual arrested and prose
cuted, and now he is out $100, which
Is the amount of the fine imposed on
him for setting himself above the
law."
