ation in that city :
At the present time t ho finest a plus

Oicifon. Some of tho liost are put up
in bushel boxes, contitinimr 120 fruits
each. They have sold at various
prices, depending upon the quality
of tho samples. Them raiiKO from It's
to Ifis for Hun specin ens. liut the

Kiiftern Statics Nun town Pippins
packed in barrels, tho best that could
lie sent trotn these centers, have sold
for as much as -lis a barrel the hiirh-
ost price secured this season for New
town s in barrels. Hut what is that
sum to a is u liusliel. equal to tiis a
barrel? This wonderful dill'erence
is not ultoiiotlier due to variations in
quality. Tlie small clean, bushel-box
put kugo plays an Important pait in
respect to in ice. hen wo first advo
cated the use of the lionchatt;cable
bushel-box by homo apple packers.
the question of cost was at once
raised as an objection against its use.
liut that is of no account when the
extra prices secured by its use ami
the decreased cost of transit are con
sidered. The foreign irrowers now
nd us over UkUUluO bushel boxes of
apples ouch year. I heir use is found
remunerative by them. The prices,
that have been made for apples al
ready this year ate without parallel
in tho trade. Hut yet (lie foreign
fruit grower does not dominate the
situation in this respect exclusively.
British apples have also been sold
this year at IDs a half, equal to 20s
a bushel, and if tho fruit had been
collected and especially graded and
packed like the Oregon fruit, it would
lim e intuit) higher ju ices still. Months
ago we gave tlrst ami exclusive news
of tho actual collection and purchase
of these Oregon fruits in the Scots
man. Wo shkI that they had been
bought at 10s a bnuhel In the orchards
of Oregon. Well, a 10,0(K) bushels
were secured, it is clear that largo
profits had been made on the deal.
At the time we announced tlie pur
chase, tons of home grown apples
were a drug ut Is (id and 2s a bushel.
These facts prove that the demand
for best apples in the Hi itish markets
is practically insatiable at high val
ues, even in seasons of abundance.
With so much land available in the
four kingdoms, it is a pity that apple
planiers are not more busy. As the
result of these high prices a front
impetus will lie given to home produce

grown apples will prove of undoubted
value to all connected with tho busi
ness. As far as the grower is con
cerned, it will enable him to prolong
tlie season at a time when tlie best
prices are realized. With a vastly

Niiriiiini Williams Weakens.
When Norman Williams was told
that his case would bo argued before
the supremo court March lf, there was
,t el atipe in the appearance of the man
who ht.s kept up a bold front for the '
ten mouths ho lias laid in jail urt'er
-i ntcnce of death for the murdi r of
Alma Mosl.it. When the news was
broken , Williams showed more nerv
ousness than he did on the day when
tho death sentence was pronounced.
Then ho was stolid, morose aud appar
ently unconcerned about bin fate.
1 ho pa.-t few weeks, however, he has
not been well. Close conllnemont and
menial strain are apparently telling
on him anil tho fact that the dachas
bet n set whim the court of last resort
hull hem' his case and determine
w let la r he shall stiller the death pen
ill y, or go fulfil a free man unstrung
Ile realizes, of course, that if tlie
supreme c.outt reverses the lower
court on the question raised by his
attorney that of iusuflicient proof of
Ihe death of Alma Mesbit another
conviction cannot be had, hence a
reversal is equivalent to an aequital.
The case will be argued before tho
supreme court by District Attorney
Menefce and Attorney (leiieral Craw
ford for the state, and by Hon. 11. K.
Me' linn for tho defeuso. District
Attorney Monetise says that if the
lower court hi reversed ou the ques-
ti if corpua delicti, the stall will
have no ease and all that will it . aiu
for him will be to dismiss IU. c.tso,
mil set the defendant tree, for a it c
oml conviction would be impossible
if the stale were compelled to produce
Ihcih'ud body, or erove by direct
testimony that, Alma .Mishit waH dead.
However, shoultl this result, it doea
not nuan that. Williams' troubles are
at an end. Ho has been indicted by
Ihe federal grand jury on a charge of
forgery, aud a still morn terious
'hat.i) may be lodged against hi in.
