While Bavannah's lumber trade on tha Whale waa satisfactory during Ihe past year, there was a slack In Ihe demand for the three months lust dosed which broke Into the good record promised at Ihe open ing of tha year. The demand up lo the latter part of May waa the beat In Ihe his tory of the local trade It was not a question of prices, but a question of mak ing deliveries. About June I (his dem ind begun lo de crease, and waa follow'd by a surplus tonnage and a consequent decline In freight rales North. The drop since has been a steady one. with consumer* Indlf fircnt about buying, pielerrlng to shape up slock on hand for order rather than order from primary markets. Northern yards were pretty well stocked with high priced lumber when the slump came. The rise In prices, which Is one of Ihe most notable In Ihe history of the trade, started In tNcember of 1393. end was checked about April of this year. The drop started In June, and since prices hsva gone off at a rapid rale, Ihe declines being anywhere from #5 to 36 lees per thousand feet under Ihe highest price* for the perks! mentioned. In the minimum else* the deop has been In Ihe neighborhood of 3S<e per cent, from Ihe hlxhest prices, end other slses have dropped In proportion. The outlook for an Improvement Is fa vorable, however, and exporter* hop* soon to see prices going upward Ball freight* have begun lo stiffen, and this with a bet. ter demand will atari price* upward, which will have the usual effect of bring ing buyer* Into the markgt In the hope of getting in early on an advancing market. Lumber will we wanted for house*, car*, dock work, warehouse*, factories, and tie# for railroad*.

Jobbers a t nit In Hepnetlna aa la crease In Business. The story of the boot and shoe Jobbers of the year's business is certainly a grat ifying one They report an Increase In butlnes* as compared with last year, and all Indications point to the fact that con sumption In this linn has been large, due to the broader territory worked and the energetic efforts of the dealers to thor oughly cover the territory they controlled at the beginning of the year. For years past the Savannah dealer has found the boot and shoe trade confronted by a formidable competition from Kaerrn houses, which travel nveu the year around In this and adjacent territory. Baltimore. Philadelphia and New York Jobbers not only sell direct to many of local trade, but go a step further In traveling men here to sell to the trade the local Jobbers cater to True, some of the Jobbers deal directly with manufacturer*.* which m.-iv have something lo do with the Infringe ment by Northern Jobbers. To counter act these Infringements local Jobbers are sending men In all directions of the South, ao that the prospects for wider field* In this line are growing dally. Houses which would naturally control the North Georgia territory. for In stance. have men In thin section, and In turn the Savannah Job ber# send men to that held for the pur pose of equallilng things. It Is said sev eral houses worked In Alabama during the year, and will enter that Held more energetically the coming season. The close of the season finds prices In tbe bool and shoe line slightly off. due to the fact that manufacturers have anui down, and are making concessions to rid themselves of stocks. Otherwise the market has ruled steady, with the de mand. as stated, fully up to what Job bers reasonably expected The enormous nssa of the boot and shoe trade In this city may be Judged from the conservative estimates of houses placing the amount of business done annually at 81.060.000 While there Is a fair demand from city dealers, the most of this vast trade repre sents the efforts of the "knight of the grip" In the country ITntll the spirit of patronising home affairs grows more en thusiastic the Jrbber and the retail dealer may continue to go It single handed for a while One feature of the year s business has been the noticeable Increase In the demand for a finer class of hoots and shoes In years past the country trade generally wanted the coarser grades, but an Im provement in the times among the .ountry classes has brought with It a desire for a better article, which the Jobbers are endeavoring to supply. In few lines (a the prosperity among the farming classes reflected more than It ts tn the boot and shoe trade.

Patsiora, Peaches anil T*ioatop While there was a considerable crop of Irish pof-ytoee grown In fhls section, the crop was not altogether a aattffactory one. Prices were not what grower* had expected Thla was largely due to the fact that a big crop of o and potatoes had been left over in the North and Wept, and these were gradually feeding the market Moreover. Ihe local crop was not of g**d quality, which Intarefered with ihetr axle a* against a good old crop |tao The lack of quality was largely attributed to an excess of molpture. The tomato crop began to arrive about May 16. There wa a good output, and at the opening of the seaaon fairly good prlcea were commanded Shortly after the local crop got on the marker, however, the Florida tomato arrived It see me the crop In that stat* was very large, and that growers were anmlous to ship here.
