New Westminster, Feb. 6.���
The market is steadily improving
as the weeks go by and working up
to tlie activity of ear'.y siring.
Trade yesterday could well be called
good although business was slightly late in starting.
Beef was plentiful and all prime
stock lound a ready demand.
Mutton and lamb were offered in
the usual quantities and the demand was strong. Veal was offered
in good quantity but was not sufficiently plentiful to meet the strong
demand which developed. Pork
was slightly weaker than for some
weeks past, warmer weather probably having an effect upon the demand. It will no douot recover
again in popularity during the next
few weeks.
Eggs showed no signs of moving
one wav or the other. A fair supply is arriving on each market day
and the demand is sufficient to take
all that offer at the ruling prices.
The demand is strong and there i*
no room for a question that if more
were offered they would sell readily
at the same price for some time.
Butter remains plentiful.
The poultry corner was a busy
one this week, large numbers of
birds changing hands. The call
was strong, much stronger thau
last week and it is still growing.
Fowls were plentiful but there was
no difficulty experienced in getting
good prices tor al! that offered.
Chickens found a lively demand
and were picked up rapidly, the
price remaining the same as last
week. The call for ducks, had
they been obtainable, it was said,
would have been strong, but they
have been gradually disappearing
and this week none were offered.
Apples were in fair supply, about
the average for this time of year,
and were of good variety and quality. The demand is strengthening
and the growers are catering carefully to the demand, so that the
price is showing the usual advance
at this season.
Potatoes remained at the price
set last week and sold readily. The
supply was about equal to the demand. Parsnips, carrots, onions
and turnips were plentiful and sold
readily at the usual figures.
Following is the list ot quotations
prevailing at yesterday's market:
Beef, hindquarters, Sc to 8J^c
per lb; forequarters, 51.3c to 6J^C
Mutton, 1 ic to 12c per lb.

This is becoming somewhat of a

the scheme.     The other day we
were told tbat   "the people buying

the period of years it is in service, yon will see that *'J-M" is
