A Decided Chance.
New York, March. .26. The. Journal
of Commerce says :
A few years ago New York waa the
distributing center in the East for Cali
fornia dried fruits. Nearly all of the
business in the territory east of Buffalo

outside trade left to the city, as in recent
years the practice has increased among
the shippers of . dried fruita in Califor
nia of consigning their goods to local
points Aa a result of tbia change,
trade here has suffered severely. Mer-

will be undersold immediately after
wards. The general opinion of the trade seems
to be that all classes of these fruits have
been affected by the change, but that it
has been most noticeable in the case of
