NO BIG SHIPMENTS
The apple Hltimtion lu CIiIohko and

Fruit and Produce hows, In uut uia
terlally dllfereut from last week. Lo
cally tbe trade in not very active. Ke
celpts, especially of bulk stock, are
liberal and only tbe fluent varieties
and t,radea are at all brink. Under

tlea soli in bulk at 00 aud 00 cents
per 100 pounda. The tracks are full
of can ,of bulk apples, and the range
by oarioadi la .X) and luu.
The situation south and southwest
of CbloBgo, in the opinion of many
dealers, will force bulk shipment? lu
un-heard-oi quantity, ihe growers
have been alow to appreciate the teal
situation, If they do even now. liar
rels are getting higher dall.r, and in
some sections they now ooet 4,) cents,
aud even tneu the siipiny la sliort,
"The farmers had an Idea that they
could wait till the buyers came to
them," said one well known receiver
to tbe News this week, "ho they made
uo plans tor packing, now the bar
rel scarcity, aud, what is more, the
labor scarcity, is torolng the situa
tion. They are ottering '2 and J'J.fiO
por day to packers, and can t get
them. It's worse west than east, for
the west has the Urst big crop tu
years, aud the growers don't know
how to onpe with the situation.
"This is bound to mean. heavy bulk
shipments, wbicli alieady we are get
tlug. The next few weeks will bring
matters to a tiead, and no one can
say what the outcome is to be. Grow
ers must oonaign heavily, with a big
percentage of bulk stock ; miiHt store
themsleves, or take tbe buyers offers.
They can't store lu warehouses to a
great exteut, because there's no stor
age room, judging from all reports.
It they consign, they'll have to let
the fruit oome ou the market for wbat
it will bring.
"Already the market is demoralized
by heavy bulk receipts. The cheaper
trade oonllne iu attentions largely to
bulk fruit, If this were not here In
suuh large quantity these buyers
would take hold of the best fruit to
ouie extent. As it Is, the heavy sun
ply of bulk apples limits the sales of
the best varieties,
liealeis here say the buying sltua
tlon lu the south and southwest is
not materially changed. There Is ho
big movement iu winter varieties.
They say either lu this sectiou or In
New York except ou special deals.
Keports of havy purchases by some
JNew lork Unns lu New iork are mis
lading, unless explained. K. P.
Loom is & Co., for inxample, are re-
fiorted as having bought about W,000
larrels lu York state at $2 aud more.
These are said to have been lwgely
King aud Ureeuiugi, and do not
xtaud the purchaser so high, varie'.ies
and conditions considered, as sup-
Sosed. Another Now York llrru, whose
igb priced deals are talked about,
has really made some very shrew I
bargains. This firm has bought a lot
of New York groweie' crops, apples,
peaches, pears and plums, all at the
same price, which, for apples alone,
would have been high. Hut iu this
way peaches have heeu bought at GO
cents per bushel; plums very cheap
aud pWs at reasonable prices, iitni
the good prollts ou this fruit have
left the purchase iirice of the apples
very modeiate. 'Ibis Mini picked out
orchards containing liberal supplies
of tbe other fruit mentioned.
Despite the tact that eautem buyers
have oome west for apples, ou account
of high prices lu New York state, ami
despite a liberal export movement
from this sectiou, eveu yet tlieie are
iio nig sales or winter varieties report
ed, rrices iu tne oountry are consul
erably weaker. Hen Davis are olfered
at 50 and 00 cents, picked and deliv
ered ; fancy varieties i." cents and l
Dealers say they can buy apples now
where they couldn't get them a short
tune ago, aud at prices then offered
auuougn many glowers arestlll holding
for higher prices, or are storing on
ineir owu accouut. lo show the sit
uation iu one suction., ti. M. John
son, or tloldeu Lilly, Mo., wrote a
lhioago dealer that there were thous
ands of bushels of lieu Davis there,
but OQt a buyer had appeared, ami
the people wnfe dmorali.d and didn't
kuow wuat to do. .Most any price
would ue accepted.

J. K. HOr, of (Sentry, Ark., van
on the markot this week and called at
t he Packer oltioo. Karlier in the sea
sou Mi. ltever ami other apple people
at Gentry made preparations fur
handling large quantities of apples,
but when here this week hueaid the
dertl had become so discouraging that
at Gentry growers had about (sire'i
up hopes of doiug much in this line.
Several cars have heeu shipped Irom
that point to Texas market-), but, the
liberal supplies going to that state at
a tinie wbon the weather is warm has
depressed she market considerably
aud some shipments have resulted iu
J oases to the growers.
Because of tbeunfHvorallo pros
pects for selling and tbe fact that lit
tle or uo storage space is avaihbl at
this tint for puHinjf away spples,
growers at Uentiy are now ottering
for sale 4.0(0 barrels that they bought
earlier in the reason and expected to
me in putting up apples. In an ad
in this week's issue of Ihe Packer
.VI r. Hevera aud O. W, Patterson, also
of Gentry, are offering 4,000 No 1 ap
ple barrels for sale. They are asking
27 cents for tbe barrels, k noosed
