WOULD SELL DIRECT
Canned Goods Offered to Re
tailers at Factory Prices. '
OFFER MADE BY PACKERS
Matter or Handling California Lines
Laid Before the Ixx-a Grocers'
Association- Strong Demand
for Flour -Grain Is Quiet.
The retail grocers of this city are much
Interested In a proposition made to them by
the largest canning concern In California to
handle Us products at factory prices. If
the deal goes through, it will mean the
elimination of the middlemen in this par
ticular line of goods.
The company that is making this effort
to sell direct to the retailers is th- Cali
fonla. Fruit Canners Association. Amenta of
the association appeared before the Retail
Grocers" Association at a reccn: meeting.
They made the claim that the Jobbers have
only taken such part of their product as tliey
needed to use with their own private label.
What the packers want Is not only to have
a larger part of their goods iad here, but
also to have them sold under the Cali
fornia Fruit Canners' Association label. To
accomplish this, they propose to sell to the
retailers at the same price that' they sell
to the jobbers.
The packers are beginning preliminary
work In their campaign by demonstrating
their goods. Their output Includes every
thing In canned fruits and vegetables, pre
serves. Jellies and catsuis.

A sale of 1A0 tons of barley was made at
The advance in Hour prices has not
checked buying, as the steady rise In the
market has caused a. belief on the part
of many buyers that quotations will con
tinue to ascend. Whether they do or not
will depend on the course of the wheat mar

there Is nothing In sight to Indicate any
rc cession in values.

The Government returns for 1!)08 show an

LOWER PRICES NAMED ON ASPARAGUS.
Carry-over Supply In California Weakens
Lower prices hav-a ben named on both
spot and future California canned aspar

It Is stated that sufficient asparagus of
last year's pack is still In stock at San
Francisco to supply all the. needs of the
canning year. For this reason much lower
prices on asparagus are expected In the
RECEIPTS OF EGGS ARE LIGHT.

The continued light receipts of eggs Indi

other outlet than Portland, probably Se

There was a fair supply of poultry yes
terday and a good demand at the prices
that have ruled for some time past. Deal
ers also report Inquiry for dressed poultry
of various kinds and quote chickens at 17 ;z
cents, turkeys at 22iQi25 cents anc'. geese
at 12914 cents, but ut these figures the
dressed stock must be fat.
Butter prices were firmly maintained on
city and outside brands.
FIRMER TONE IN POTATO MARKET.
I neonHrmed Rumors of Higher Prices Paid
There Is a firmer feeling n the potato
market, because of renewed Inquiry from
various parts of California. While the local
hipping trade still quoted $1.25 art country

"Net Kurn in jr Statements of Harrl

factory Copper Sliarcs
NEW YORK, March 2. A contest for ad
vantage between the professional factions In
the speculation made up the stock market
almost altogether today. Another advance
In the price of refined copper, both In Lon
don and at the New York Metal Exchange,
was regarded as confirmatory of reports of
an improved demand.
Tile conviction is strong that when the
decline in the metals has reached its limits,
there will be a large waiting demand de
veloped, which will lead to an early trade
revival. Reports from the steel trade indi
cated that the cut In prices had brought out
some orders, but the amount mas declared
to be small. The effect on sentiment was
offset by the announcement of the posting
of wage reductions In the Lackawanna
Steel Works at Buffalo, the news having a
somewhat ominous Influence.
The wage question received additional
consideration by reason of the statement
published In behalf of the anthracite op
erators. The refutation offered of the claims
formulated by t the miners was evidently
an announcement to comply with them.
The soeclal weakness of Erie was due to
the apoiicatlon to the Public Service Com
niisaion for modification of the terms per
mitted for the proposed bond Issue.
The Union Pacific aud Southern Pacific
net earning statements for January were
utilized to push a rally, but the movement
was totally without enthusiasm. The small
gain In gross earnings of Union Paclfl.- and
the actual decrease for Southern Pacific
offer questionable ground of satisfaction, in
view of the severe depression of earnings
last year with which the comparison Is
made. The reduction In operating cost
also, was more moderate than for some re
i.ent months. Except in a few southern
railroads, the roads thus far reporting show
an Increase In the expense item, compared
with January of last year, with correspond
ing modification of the Increase In net earn
ings. This increase In expenses In several
caues was so considerable as to outweigh
the gross increase and make the net return
les.i than even tre meaner return or Janu
ary last year. Canadian Pacific, chir-ago &
Northwestern and Missouri. Kansas & Texas
were cases in point.
