Mexico Will Request British To Leave
Clipperton Island.
Citv of Mexico, December jc>.—Some time
ago when It was rumored that a British
w.-irsmp had seiz-d Clipperton Island lo
cal papers took the matter up and
was agitation over the report'd iorcible
occupation of Mexican soil. The foreign
relations department asked the war <<‘-
partm it to . end an exp< dltion to the is
land. to invi .-tg.ite if f'-te j:t!t -11 realty
had taken possession. Hour days ago tin
corvette El Demo. rata. Captain Eeofollc
G'-nest-o, left IdazaU.m for the Island.
Should it prove true that tho island which
Mexico claims as bi-longtng to her has
been seized by the British, tho mattei t. fl.
bo taken up diplomatically for tin- pur
pose of recovering tho territory. MexlcJ
will formally request tho r<-: duration c

McCullough Bros. Fruit and Produce
Atlanta, December 18. The holidays are
close at hand and every class of fruit, nuts
and confectioneries are moving at a lively
rate. In fact, tho market Is very closely ,
sold out at present and we dare say that
next week’s business Vili oversell every
jobber in this line and a great n any or
ders will get turned down on this account.
Bat.anas are booming, and it uei-ms to I. '
an absolute impossibility to ripen thorn
sufficiently fast to eope with the demand,
which is nee. -sarlly very strong, as the
fruit, has not more than time now to reach
destination to the. country trade.
Tlie market is very short on oranges, In
consequence of which prices have stiffened
up materially during the last few days. A
Lt-‘.ii many who bought oranges, both in
b'lorlda ami California, have been disap
pointed in getting tli-.r>. und t!;ose. who are
■so lucky as to have their enntracts tilled
will no doubt reap’good benefit.
Apples are very scarce indee.l. In fact,
there Is tiotulng do:ent now on the Atlanta
market. The only cur of strictly fancy,
high colored, straight packed stock that
has licet’ in the Atlanta market this season
was received on Thursday last and came
from Illinois. 'The cur contained nothing
but Ben Davis, und they had scarcely been
unloaded before tli-v li.'d been gobbled up j
by the trade at fancy prices. There is au
oth< r < ar of the me ste< >: in tran It at
present for the Allan'.i market to arrive
-a-xt we !;. The out-of-town trade will do
W'.-ii to get their orders in on time.
l,‘-mons continue dull witii light receipts
atid no change in prices.
The market is v.n-ll supplied with New |
York grapes -f.'atawbas only in live-pound
b.-iski-ts v. i h no change In pricv.
t’r.mi.ci - i.-.; eori'inm- firm with light re
ceipts and an upward tendency.
Coconnuts ore a little off at points of im
portation, but the 1.-e-i! market is holding
prli "s st Iff with no Indi. lons of a decline
until after Chris: tuns.
Cabbage r.-..-elpt.; are much lighter than |
for tomi: Him . Th.- demand is light, how- -
ever, at the same price.
Turnip:-: are very dull. Di fact, there Js
less trading in them than at any season of
the year so far.
Irish potatoes continue firm. However,
t.-o think prices have reached the top
onion receipts ore very light indeed and
there are no doubt but that prices will be *
stiiriulati. <i during the- nt at tew days. i
