OFFICE OF THE MORNING NEWS. I
Savannah, Ga.. Nov. n, 1887. f
General Remarks During tlie past week in
the general market there were a few features of
interest developed, the most important being
,he rapid and heavy advance in the fleecy staple,
while in a few others of the leaders considerable
stien'Hh was shown, but in a majority
the situation has been a very
steady one as regards values. There
was a comparatively steady movement
in pretty much all departments of trade, and on
the whole reached a very fair aggregate amount
for this period of the year. The receipt of or
ders from the interior has increased slightly
over the past two weeks, which is due to the
fact that travelers have been enabled to cover
more territory iu Florida, as the quarantine was
not so rigid as it has been previously. In grocer
ies there was a very steady shipping movement
in execution of back orders, and a fair amount
of new business was had. In the dry goods
trade the business was comparatively light, so
far as wholesale jobbers were concerned, but
in the retail departments there was a fair trade
in progress. In all other jobbing
braLcbes the business at hand was
moderate! with absolutely no features
of interest to excite attention. Collections arc
jioor. The money market was easy, with some
improvement in the demand. Domestic ex
change was temporarily scarce and rates were
advanced though closing, easier. Foreign ex
change is firmer. The security market is slug
gisk. The following review of the week’s busi
ness will show the tone and latest quotations of
the different markets at the close to day:
Naval Stores.—The .market for spirits tur
fientine was very firm during the past week,
and prices were advanced on Tuesday to 35c for
regulars. But on the following day they fell
off 1,20., closing to day firm at a full recovery.
There was a good inquiry, but the offering stock
, V ;is light. The total sales
were about 3,500 ' casks, the bulk
of which was on the basis of 34)*e. Rosin—The
market was quiet during the week, and the
lower grades declined sc. There was a fair
inquiry, and about 9,500 barrels changed hands
during the week. In another column will be
found a comparative statement of receipts and
exports from the beginning of the season
to date, and for the same period last
year, showing the stocks on hand and on ship
board not cleared, together with the official
Rice.—The market for this grain was again
strong and prices were advanced )*c. during
the week. There was a good demand but the
offering stock of clean was rather light and not
up to the requirements of the trade. There is
no anxiety on the part of owners to
sell and the outturn of the mills
continues somewhat restricted. The move
ment shows that the crop is going rapidly into
consumption as it is marketed, although the
receipts are still light. The total sales for the
week were about 2.000 barrels. The receipts
thus far this season were 292.000 busbeis
rough, of which the mills have pounded 191,000
bushels, leaving the stock on hand at >OI,OOO
bushels. The following are the official quota
tions of the Board of Trade. Small job lots are
held )*®)4c. higher.
Fair 49*® 494
Good 5 ®
Tide water $1 10®1 25
Country lots 85® 90
Cotton—The market during last week was
strong and advancing. The reports of the Cot
ton World and the Agricultural Bureau, and
following each oilier so closely, showing the
condition of the crop, and verifying to a great
extent each other’s estimate of a much smaller
crop i ban was anticipated, had the effect of
stiffening up controlling markets
and prices advanced rapidly and heavily. At
ihe close to-day they were fully 94®>4,c. higher
than a week ago. There was a very fair demand,
bin exporters again complain of g great scarcity
of freight room, which of course limited their
takings The total sales for this week were
18.100 bales. Toe following are the official clos
ing spot quotations of the Cotton Exchange:
Middling fair 10)4
Good middling 10
Low middling 9)|
Good ordinary 914
n< rt Island The receipts for the week up to
4 p. in., as reported by factors, were 1,650 bags,
and the sales for the same time were 1.011 liags,
tearing the stock at 4.577 hairs. The market
has continued firm, and prices have advanced
fully )*c. There was a good, steady de
mand. ~ but on the advance it was
choked, and the week closes
with buyers and sellers more or less apart. The
stork is light as compared with last year and
holders are very firm in then - views as to value.

Green A Co.’s report on cotton futures savs:
“Activity aud excitement couthiue as the ruling
features on cotton options, but the buoyancy
has become temporarily checked, and there was
something of a setback on the line of values for
the day. Many of the trade affect to doubt the
reliability of recent official crop estimates. A
failure in the trade induces greater eaulion, and
reports from the continent regarding the polit
ical situation are more or less unfavorable. The
result has been found in a large amount of
liquidation on the fluctuating line of values,
showing 13@16 points drop early, recovering 10
points, and then another set!nick that left final
rates H®lß points under Inst evening, with the
feeling unsettled and feverish, though the ottl
cial tone was given as steadv. ■'

Fru't and Vegetable Markets.
New York, Nov. 9.—By special request of the
publisher of the News, I have again resumed
telegraphic quotations on Georgia and Florida
produce for the benefit, aud information of the
track growers, aud it shall be my aim to make
them as complete aud correct as possible, aud
will not exaggerate prices, consequently they
can be relied upon. Through the courtesy of
the Morning News I desire to say further that
we have every reason to look forward for large
crops of both Georgia and Florida produce, and
we w ill have active markets here and much en
courageinent to exp:t remunerative prices for
certain specialties in vegetables, and yet the
success of the shipper and grower will depend
largely on the kind of produce planted, quality
and uianner in wfiich it Is packed, etc Dud u
many years of experience in handling Southern
produce in this market I have found tl at choice
marks of eil her fruit or vegetables are not neg
looted or left on the market after the business
is over, and even in our greatest gluts. These
brands of goods generully sell for fairly re
muuerative prices; whereas inferior goods, beii g
faulty either from improper packing or in l
uniform in quality, or having been packed Uw
soon or held too long I efore gathering, all of
which tend to deteriorate the quality to the
buyer, and the accumulation of these goods 01
the market is what breaks prices mid s-rioiiah
etfeots the price obtained fur the superior ar
tide. I would therefore urge the necessity of
all growers and shippers to aim to have good
quality rath‘*r than quantitv, as twenty five 01
fifty packages of choice fruit or vegetables will
frequently show better net results than ilonble
the quantity of inferior goods, from the fact
that the expense in packing, transporting, etc.,
is the same on a package or inferior as on one
of the best.
At pn s nit there is a demand for snap beans
egg plant aud cucumbers, which are already
coming to our market, some from Florida an
others from Savannah, and this demand will
continue throughout the coming winter. Other
icgetables will not pay to send forward unt i
after Jan, 1. The outlook is specially favorable
for the spring potato crop, from the fact thin
our Northern supply is very short and showing
already indications of rot; the demand will
therefore lie very large for the new crop.
It is gratifying to note the encouraging out
look for all lines of business throughout th
en un try, and which is a favorable feature for
the coming market ou vegetables.
Allow me to lliank niy natrons throughout the
South for their many favors in the past, ami
assure them it will be my pleasure toservethem
to the liest of my ability in the future. Very
truly yours, G. 8. Palmer,
166 Reade street. New York.
