A number of heavy Alaska ship ments are as usual, incident to the opening of navigation to the far away Alaska ports of Nome and St. Michael, and to the Tanana territory points. These have demanded large sup plies of various sorts, but are now out of the way, together with the special demands growing out of the visit of the Atlantic fleet to the Puget Sound ports. The potato situation has cleared to some extent. Many of the consign ments are of inferior stock and bring but low rates. There is a fairly good demand for all potatoes, especially Burbanks, that are in prime condition. New potatoes are mainly in excellent condition, and the prospects are favor able for a superior crop of this sea son's growth. The poultry market is betwixt and between. The supply of fowls is am ple, with prices below those of a year ago. There is a limited demand for ducks. Young ducks are beginning to arrive and sell readily. The sup ply of broiler chickens is good and the demand is active. But little is done with capons, and the market has not been worked up in this line. Here is a field for experiment. Strawberry shipments are increas ing, and the stock is in good condi tion. The supply has been largely from outside points, but local berries are now appearing. The crop is re ported to be good and in excellent condition. The cool weather has de layed ripening, but has permitted de velopment of the berry. Opinions dif fer as to the duration of the crop, some believing they will now rush the season, while others think they will come on more moderately. A few Logan berries have appeared. Home grown cherries are appearing in the market. The veal market is slow. The sup ply is large and many shipments are not in good condition. Then, too, the condition of the poultry market af fects the demand for veal. Prime veal can be handled to advantage. Eggs have some slight variations, but the local supply is insufficient for the demand. Hay Market Quiet.—Jacob Kauf mann states that hay is plenty. While some is prime, much is off grade, over ripe or badly mixed. Oats have re mained steady and stiff in price, and are rather •scarce. Several local causes have affected market condi tions for these goods. Business Booming.—S. A. Hull, of the Hull-Hamlett Co., reports that a large amount of stuff is being handled. Bananas and tomatoes have been de layed by the transportation condi tions and the supply is limited. Local berries and cherries are now coming. The local cherries are not as good as in some years. The best onions are now coming freely from Califor nia points. Potatoes Slow.—J. B. Powles & Co. report the demand for old potatoes as very slow and the quality below the the needs of the market. New pota toes are In good supply and of fine quality, prices being moderate for the season. The quality of local cherries 1b not up to those from California; but may improve with the progress of the season. Bananas and tomatoes have been tied up by train conditions. This firm has made several large shipments to Nome and other distant Alaska points. Prices Steady.—H. B. Turner, of the Miller-Reed-Pease Co., reports the prices of dairy products as fairly steady. The supply is entirely local. Alaskan orders are steady for these goods. Mr. Turner reports the condi- /The JFtanctu tions better In this market than in points in the East that he recently vis ited. * Apples Cleaned Out.—H. S. Emerson Co. reports the market as cleaned of apples, with but few more to come, mainly Winesaps. First shipments of apricots and plums are arriving. Prices of local cherries are reason able and the supply good. Potato demand is light for old stock, new po tatoes being plenty and relatively cheap. Berry supply is increasing and prices are declining. The crop will be abundant. Some of these will be shipped to Alaska points as the season progresses. Vashort Island Berries.—W. H. Jones & Co. is handling berries from Vashon Island and Lake Washington growers. They will be plenty but he predicts a short, hustling season. They are well matured and will soon get their color this fine June weather. Very few local cherries are to be had as yet. Pineapples Coming Forward. —Wm. Meister reports the receipt of Florida pineapples and 300 crates from Hono lulu. Also some Logan berries. Na tive asparagus brings good price' 3, but the demand will soon cease. Native cherries are not yet ready to ship free ly. Berries are now mainly of the home supply.. Veal Calves Dull.—Miller Bros, re port an over supply of veal calves, with many arrivals in bad condition; therefore the market is slow and drag gy, and they are difficult to handle. Poultry is between seasons and dull, which helps depress the market for veal. There is a limited demand for young ducks. Egg Market Strong.—The Reynolds Produce Co. reports the egg market strong, with a considerable demand for Eastern eggs. Potato crop pros pects are considered excellent by this firm. Potatoes Wanted.—James A. Riley wants potatoes. He has a last chance for Burbanks of good stock. There are lots of cheap spuds, but few good ones are to be had now, and It is this class that is wanted. Hay is quiet at the present time. Prices Some Lower. —J. R. Burch, of Burch Bros., reports that prices of poultry are somewhat lower than a year ago. The supply has been good and the demand active for the Alaska trade. Broilers have been in active demand at good prices. Capons have a good but limited demand at about one-third higher rates than other poul try. This market has not been well worked up for this class of poultry. The home supply of eggs is not equal to the demand. Hothouse Tomatoes. —A. D. Blowers & Co. handle some hothouse tomatoes. The market is short on Florida and Mississippi tomatoes, owing to the washouts on the railroads. Some cars have been taken over by the railroad companies because of damages sus tained in transit. Floridas are in far better condition than Mississippis this season. The heaviest crop of berries from this state is now coming for ward. There is an over supply of cherries for the market. California apricots, peaches and plums are ar riving in excellent condition and good supply for the season. There will be more fruit sold for less money this season than last. MILLER PRODUCE CO.
