TEXAS ONION CROP LARtiFl ONE Acreage Is Increased nd Peaaon Is Earlier Than Usual. The Texas Bermuda onion crop will be gin moving about April 1. according to a statement made by the Southern Texas Truckgrowers' Association. The producing acreage for 1913 exceeds that of last year, when 4000 cars were shipped. Estimates for this crop are not fully made up, but experts are of the opinion that It may ap proximate 5000 cars. Everything has been favorable for development and maturity. On account of market conditions for this product, which were the worst ever known during the past mild Winter, Texas grow ers do not expect anything like fancy or even very good prices for their earlier shipments, but they hold the hope that with the exhaustion or setting aside of old North ern and Western stocks prices for their product will improve with the progress of the season. On account of disturbances across the bor der the usual movement of the Mexican onion crop Into the United States by rail Is being greatly Interfered with. This crop, however, which Is mostly grown by Ameri cans, does not exceed 100 oars. It la sub ject to the existing tariff of 40 cents pet bushel and cannot he brought In com mercially after the Texas crop begins to move. LOCAL EGG MARKET IS XTRMEB Poultry In Light Supply and Hlsb.
