The peach season Is fairly opening In
the Fort Valley section. Thousands of
crates have been shipped to Northern
points. The rush of carload lots
will shortly begin. The railroads have
nearly 200 refrigerator cars on the sidings
in readiness and when the rush is on the
crop will be handled with all speed. The
local basket and crate factories cannot
half supply the demands of fruit carriers.
Labor is coming in from surrounding sec
tions and all are securing work at good
wages, either as pickers, packers or crate
makers. Peaches are bringing fair prices
as a general rule, and a number of or
chards have been sold at good figure*.

Sanford Chronicle: Last week 1,012
pounds of fine trout were caught by

Gainesville Sun: The purchase by the
city of the gas plant meets with general
approval. It is a movement in the right
direction, and we believe it will prove
fully as advantageous to the city as has
the ownership of the water works. Whit©
Gainesville has liabilities it has assets
ample to meet them. It is probable that
if properly managed the gas and water
works plants will, in a few’ years, liqui
date the entire indebtedness of the city.
One of the largest baptisms ever seen
In Sanford took place on Sunday last in
Lake Monroe. Roy. R. Brewer, pastor

He has been in poor health fdr some

successful orange grower. He owned the
famous big ofange tree, from which was

or 1884. This tree was killed in 1886. He

the funeral of his father.
The trouble among the cigarmakers at
Tampa took a little aggravated turn Mon
day afternoon, when another factory was
closed on account of a strike. About 1
o’clock the men walked out and refused
to work until their demands were grant
ed. Sanchez & Hayn had discharged an
Italian cigarmaker on Saiurday, and now
the men want him reinstated, and they
also want him and all those working on
the particular sized cigar he was at work
on to receive $3 tier thousand more than
before. These demands were not grant
ed, and the strike ensued. The factories
of the Havana-Ameriean Company, which
have been closed for some weeks, will
probably open this week, and have a gen
uine respite from labor troubles.

at Savannah, arrived at the city dock
yesterday. This vessel is one of the best
of her kind In southern waters, and will
be set to work on the upper side of Grassy

it is expected that it will reach Tampa

New York, June 6.—The movement of
cotton prices to-day was frequent and vio
lent, with both aides receiving setbacks.
The l*ear faction had the advantage on
the opening, inasmuch as English cable
news was very unsatisfactory, and the
weather news more encouraging, and they
succeeded in forcing prices off 3 to 7
l>olnts. On this break August touched
7.99 c. with scarcely any effort made by
the holders to arrest the turn. The for
elmi contingent and the speculative public
sold on the slump with an unusual degree
of confidence. But toward midday a feel
ing of distrust invaded the bear camp and
prices were soon reacting rapidly on pur
chases from all sides. Early In the af
ternoon* the up-turn became sensational in
Us rapidity, with July easily the leader.
Shorts were temporarily panic-stricken by
a jump of 28 points in July in New Or
leans. which private advice* declared had
resulted from a wild scramble of shorts
to cover on had reports from the central
belt. In the local markets July advanced
to 8.45 c before a breathing spell was taken.
Later in the day the market was nervous,
with trading spasmodically active. Sen
timent was very much mixed, and both
longs and shorts endeavored to reduce
commitments, particularly as opinions
concerning the probable acreage estimate
of the Chronicle to-morrow differed in the
extreme. Europe was a heavy buyer on
the afternoon rise, and considerable cotton
was also purchased for Southern account.
The close was quiet and steady ,at a net
advance of points, the market having
eased off under realizing.

Cotton in Liverpool declined ',4(1 on spots,
middling uplands 4%d; soles 8,000 bales. Fu

more, but closed about 5-64d under yester

down on old, and 3 to 5 points on new
crop. There was a good demand from
shorts, and some now "iiying which
caused prices to Improve about 15 points
on summer deliveries during the morning
session. Prices eased off after 1 o’clock
on some longs selling, but at this writing,
(2 p. m ). are about 5 points over yester

has improved somewhat. The strength in
July delivery In New Orleans helped the
improvement here this morning.

good, and the closing showed sales of a
round lot. There were reported rec-ipts
of 1,553 casks, nnd sales of 940, which
leaves a difference of about GTJO casks,

New York, June 6.—'About midway of
today’s session of the Stock Exchange
there was a rise Of 3 points In Now Jer
sey Central on rumors of control by Bal
timore and Ohio. This Incident offered an
Isolated feature of strength In the day’a
market and caused the only brief respilo
from the mood of depression whl h pre
vailed all day.
The most affective single factor was tho
warlike developments in China. This In
fluence was reflected In. N4w York from
foreign stock markets from the opening
here, and London’s actual sale* In this
market on that account ran up to about
30.000 shares, about half of which were
of Atchison preferred. Even as a direct
Influence this selling had a notably weak
PAGES 9 TO 10.
enlng elTect In so narrow a market as
now prevails. The sympathetic effect of
the foreign weakness was eVen more
marked. Wall street entertains no great
apprehension (hat the IJnltcd States will
become directly Involved In thee difficul
ties in China. But commitments of Ameri
can caplial In foreign money markets nnd
the extension of American commercial In
terests have- grown to such proportions
that any event which would precipitate
liquidation In foreign marke's rqutet he re
flected directly and strongly In the Uni
teel States. Besides the news from Chine,
foreign markers were affe-ctel b,v the
tightening of the money rate In London
and Parts and a slightly easier t' v re li
the Berlin money market was n t s tffi
clenit to ofTset other depressing factors.
The break In the foreign prices of Iron
and rumors of further cone' selort In Iron
prices In this country emphasise! the
weakness of stocks, troth alrrood anti In
(tils country. News of the dotnrsllr lroi
trade was confused, reports of declining
prices being mingled with repoHs of re
opening of some mills recently closed
down. Tennessee Coal was the weakest
of the steel group and lost 2Vi. In the
general list prices were weak through u’,
but stocks which have shown some
strength recently were most affec ed.
Atchison preferred, St. Paul, Baltimore
and Ohio. Union Pacific and Louisville
were exarftples. Denver and Rio Grand'
preferred fell 2V4 poims on rumors of the
acquisition of the Colorado Midland by
rival interests, and Great Northern pre
ferred declined 4 points.
Thore Is growing uneasiness In specula
tive circles over the prospects of th*
wheat crop, based upon the low condition
reported to-day from Ohio hi and the con
tinued drouglh tn the Northwest. The
convening of the Joint Passenger Com
mittee In this city and the meeting to
morrow of railroad presidents to att*mpt
an adjustment df rate disturbances calls
attention to that sotiroe of danger to
values of railroad securities.
The money market continues almost rn
precedeittly easy tn spite of the taking up
by the sub-treasury from the lo.al banks
of $2,630.(8)0 thus far this week. This gain
by the sub-treasury is due to the ta Ung
In of government deposits from the banks,
and the money will be returned to the
channels of the market as scon as the 2
per cent, lmnds which have been called
are presented for redemption.
The bond market weakened In sympathy
with stocks on a moderate volume of
business. Total sales, par value. $1,195 0 0.
