DAWSON MARKETS J Eighteen Articles on the Up Grade, DEMAND IS AOTIVE 'Number ~f Commoditie;; Preltity Short -Busi,ness Good in Dawson-Peo· pie on Cr'eeks 'and l In own 'Buylng-­ Cong e'Sti, on of Freighlt: a:t iWh ilt'ehalrs. e The local market is stiff. A num­ ber of articles are pretty short and the demand Is active. This is the reason given by tra,ders for advances in eighteen commodities in the last three orfonr days. The demand is principally from the creek, s. It is a1so strong in town. 'Fortymile and some of the other outlying d~stricts are drawing 'on lDawson to a. limited extent . . 'Business is accordingly good in [)awson. The congestion of frelghrt at Wbite· ho~se is hurting the consumer. a , ix­ teen hundred' tons of freight are on 'the river. Some traders believe that a number of articles will drop slight­ ly when the freight arrives, while others say that the winter quotations are here to stay until next spring. The Wbite Pass companY', accord· ing to a telegram received from Vice· ,President Newell by J . H. Rogers, lIgnres that it can move only 2,500 tons of the 3,700 tons at Wlhitehorse. 'r'his is its limit. Potatoes are wh01esaJing at 8 cents. Last week t hey went fQr 7@ '11,6 cents. Apples which formerly went at 5@7 are now stiff at 6 straight, and, are short. Flour is at $3.50' instead of $3.25@3.5O'. 'Smoked meats have taken another jump npward. 'Both ham and· bacon are wholesaling at 3~ cents. Cann· en stra wberries' , raspberries and black· berries have advanced 50 cents a ease. .J ersey cream has risen 50' cents a cas e: while other brands remain at last week~s quotations.
