" \Voll , sir , " saU lie " from present
indicatioim you may oxpnct a large
supply for the coming season , cspeci-
nlly of lurgo oysters , such ns are con
sumed huio in the city. Thu prospect
looks very good , indeed. The oyntnra
aru growing tiuely , nnd few beds have
been molested by any of the oyster's
enemies. There have been n few des
troyed in Prince's Buy by the mussels
in id borers , nnd there hiivo been n
good many seed oysters killed by bor
ers in Orator Hay. But thesis depre
dations nro not very serious. Sen-
stars , or star fiah , have not given
much trouble of late , nnd I h.xvo not
heard of drumfish much since about
six years npo , when they destroyed
oysters worth § 50,000 in 1'rinco's Bay.
"Ovsters are received hero from
Port Washington and Glcnuwood , on
the East liiver ; Stamford nml Green
wich , Conn. ; Oyster Bay , Cow Bay ,
Kocknway and Blue Point , L. 1. ;
Princo's Bay , S. I. ; Kcyport , Perth
Amboynnd the Shrownbury River , N.
J. ; and also from the Dulawaio nnd
Ohcsaueako Bays and Norfolk , V .
All the oysters coming from the li .at
llivor and along the sound \vo call by
the gcnerul name of East Rivers , '
adding the name of the locality where
grown , ns Fort Washington East
Rivera. ' Moro oysters are being
raised up the East River and Soumf
every year. Five times ns many
come from there now ns did a few
years ago. They nro supplanting thu
Virginia oysters in popular favor.
East River oysteis are salt , whil
those from Piinco Bay nro what wo
call 'fresh.1 Tlio former have the best
llavor. Rockaways nnd Shruwsburys
nre of about the snmo quality as East
Rivers. What wo call 'sounds' nre
oysters taken from Nownrk Bay , when
nbout the si/.o of a dime or quarter
dollar , and planted. Blue Points nre
the favorite with connoisseurs , and
are noted for their sweet , rich flavor.
The grounds nro on the south side of
Long Island. Blue Points are not ns
salt as East Rivera. These uro the
bent which grow naturally and are not
"Tlio Virginia oysters are inferior
to those raised in this vicinity , and
will only bring 50 cents a bushul out
of the schooners , when East Rivers
command 51.50. There is ns much
difl'erenoo between Blue Points and
Virginias , as between a domestic and
a Ilnvnnna cigar. I can tell the local
ity whore the oysters have come from ,
if you should show mo ten different
kinds , just by looking at the sheila.
But they are really no varieties , r the
difference all depending on the locality
in which they are grown.A - mud bottom
tom oyster is darker and of "poorer
quality than one grown on hard bet
tom. A change from one kind of bottom
tom to the other scorns to make them
fat and better. Oysters will grow
plumber and rounder on n hard bet
tom. Growing in mud their shape is
elongated. If you look near the hinge
of the oyster's shell , you can see where
the iirst year's growth ended , and no-
: ice the growth in each year after.
Many seed oysters nro also raised nt
Now Haven , oyster shells being used
tor the spawn to adhere to. I plant
oysters in six different places Oys-
: ors begin to spawn nbout May 15'h ,
and nre about through by August 20th.
"They are , " continued Mr. Frazer ,
"about thirty-five wholesale oyster
dealers in this city , nnd only ten or
Ifteen of these are heavy planters.
We keep a number of shops , nnd em
ploy many men during the season ,
raying good hands 82 a day. Thu im
plements used are tongs , something
ike two iron rakes with their handles
linged , a broad iron rnko with curved
teeth , and a 'dredge1 or scraper , with
a wire or hemp netting to catch the
oysters. The boats usually go out
nnd back with a load by evening , in
imo for the next morning's trade.
Trucks then take the oysters wherever
wo have orders for them , nnd if any
are left over they are transferred to
Ilia barge , which is easily done us it
rides on a level with thu .sloop. "
"Who nre your best customers in
the city ? "
"Thu hotel usually ; some very un-
retentions ones use a large quantity
) f oysters. Then wo sell many to Ful-
.011 market dealers. These little oys-
cr nnd clam counters , which you BOO
on the street cornels , use more than
rou would think/ They nro our best
iiistomora in warm weather. From
May ta September almost all tlio sup-
ily comes from Princo's Bay and Key-
nirt. In the fall and winter they
iomo from Blue Point nndRockawny ,
ind East Rivera are in market all thu
Benson from September to May. , But
hen Homo resivaraiitu will ? ell you
my kind out of the same basket.
"Many oysters corno direct in
choonerA from Virginia in winter ,
klnny , too , nro opened there , and nro
old hero in p.iila , or by quart , Some-
imea ourEast River bodw get fro/.tm
) ver in the winter. Lu : > t winter there
voro eororal weeks when oyster boitn !
voro delayed.
"Tho oyster canning business is n
argo intoicst hero , as nyntcra nro
hipped all over thu country , cspe >
ially to the west. Virginia plants
IK ! Sounds are mostly used for thin
mrposo , jo they nro cheaper than the
nor flavcicd oysters. Few oysters
re put in kegs of late years , as cans
ircsorvo the flavor better. After the
ana are filled , they are nealcd and
nit in a box with ice pricked around
hem , if the weather in warm , but
lint is not neconsiiry in winter. It's
i big trade , this oyster business ,
hough I could not give u very exact
atinmto of it. "
"What ia the prospect for flipping
ystora to Europe ? "
" Wo could probably ship more
him we ahall luwu to send , Thu for-
ign market wante small oysters that
run from 1,000 to 1,500 in a kirro
There is going to bo a scarcity of sum
ones , ns our homo market is usin
smaller ones every year. O r oxpor
trade has giown up in the lait ROVO
years. Five years ago I sent wo
JOO.OOO oysters nnd r < cei\ed wor
that the market wns glutted , Nm
this mnrkut sometimes oxpnrts 4,001
barrels a week. Lost year < n-cr 70IKX
barrels were exported , nnd in the VLM
before about 02,000 barrolc. Thu Kn
glish nro not ns great oyster-oafors a
Americans. They like tl-.oir n.-.livo
oysters best , a * they hhvo . \ copporj
taste. Consequently AiniM.rou . oys
lers only bring nbout half us iinu'li a
English. Some of their ( ysti'is como
from Wales and aomo from Ireland
where a largo oyster bed had reeentlj
been discovered.
4 Our exports go mainly I" l.iver
eel nnd London. A few no to Paris
iVe send n good many to \\ales for
seed. They are laid on the shore
where ( hey nro covered at high tide
A law there prevents anyone fiomtak
ing up native oysters during three o ;
tno months of the year , and so tlu-j
take up the American stock durinj ,
three months. Oystora for export an
not opened , but packed as tightly as
possible in barrels , and headed up.
They would not keep if opened , unless
they were pickled. Blue Points are
the favorites m the foreign market
of the American oyaters. The law
forbids their being taken up before
September 15.
" The demr nd for clams is nt its
height when that for oysters doclinet ,
from May 1 to September 15. It has
been thu best season for clams in aov-
on years back. The best eliuiis come
from Little Neck and Cow Buy , those
from Fire Island and EIJC ; Harbor being -
ing inferior.
A prominent dealer in oysters at
Fulton Marko said recently : "There
never was a promise of a better season
than this. There is nothing to com
plain of in size or flavor. The
Shrowsburya and East Rivers wo find
more abundant than over before , and
the meat is firm and of n rich and del
icate llavor. Rockaways nro by some
thought bettor yet. The outlook for
our foreign trade with England nnd
Franco wns never bettor , there being
a constantly increasing demand. "
Ono denier at Fulton Market toqlcn
more gloomy view of the oyster trade.
Ilo thought the depredations by mus
sels and drills in Princo's Bay , the
high cost of oyster seed , nnd the in
creased amount of capital necessary in
the business would prevent , oysters
from selling nt very low prices.
"This is the lust dull week wo will
have in this business , " said Mr Porter
ter , a member of the firm uf J. W.
Boyle it Co. , wholesale dealois at the
foot of Broomo street , Ea t River.
"Tho trade will begin with a rush
September 1st. The better claw of
custom begins and closes very prompt
ly with the season , but the cheaper
class holds good the year round.
Many poisons think the sale of clams
exceed that of the oysters in the sum
mer months , but wo have sold 500
baskets of oysters on many days this
summer ; but wo did not begin to sell
as many clams Yes , there will bo a
largo crop , and ono of unusually finu
quality. Shrowsburys that were poor
last year at this time are now plump
ns one could wish , nnd if theykenp on
growing will have to burst tlio shells.
"Indications point to an active fall
trndo , and wo have sold twice ns many
in the past summer as in any summer
before. Wo plant oysters in nineteen
different places. Wo are now starting
a branch at Perth Amboy with a force
of 100 men to open the oysters. A
good nun will open 4,000 n day , and
is paid $1 per thousand. "
"Do you imagine thu public will get
the oysters nt much cheaper rates on
account of a plentiful crop ! "
"No , not much cheaper. You see ,
for fancy oysters , Shrowsburys , East
Rivers and Blue Points , wo have a
regular schedule of prices that wo
keep from year to year. It is a pre
carious crop. Some years ago wo
lost 30,000 bushels of Keyport that

away thousands of bushels of oystoro
in the Rappahannock river. Our
beds sometimes get fro/.on over , and
wo have to keep flying around every

are the mussels , drills , drumfish , and
sea-stars that swoop down upon the
beds like pirates occasionally. Even
should oyatcrc bo cheaper at whole

would bo apt to keep up their regular

will certainly not have to pay above
regular nrices , while there will bu
plenty for rich and poor , and the
Duality is fine.

It is a well known fact that th
northern division of Colorado , that i
to sty the Hcction of country hin
north of thu line of the South Pai
railway , hns in itself very siilllcicii
lignites to meet all the demand ? of if
population for item-ration ? , nnd pci
liap.i for centurion to como , includin
thu wants of the railways nnd th
mines for steam power. It h als
well understood that none of thos
coals , thus fnr mined , arc suitable fo
coking by any process in use west o
the Mississippi. Wo have the state
ment , however that a company ha
recently onjanifcod for the purpose o
coking them by means of the nonl ;
discovered Austrian method , which , i
is believed , will readily convert then
into coke , and which will be fully described
scribed when the plnnt is laid. While
nature has provided for all our want ,
in this direction most lavishly , otho
parts of thu state have been o'-oi
more abundantly favored. If tin
timber on the mountain sides ( since
the plains nro treeless ) were our onb
dependence for fuel , it would not enl >
lie very costly , but it would bo absolutely
lutoly exhausted in a century or so.
Indeed , within thu short period o :
settlement in the principal mining dis
tricts the greater pait of thu limber for
uiles nbout them has been destroyer
jy forest tires , or consumed by the
) eople. Were there not an inexhnus-
iblo supply of splendid carbon so
distributed throughout the hnbitnblu
) ortions of the state ns to be cheap ! }
) lnced within the reach of all , the
irospeet for the future would be al-
nest appalling.
Thu southern half of our great
commonwealth is equally well provi-
led for in the matter of < | imutity ,
vith the advnntngo of bettor quality ,
or much of thuuonl in that sect ion is
oadily convertible into coke. Thou-
audi of toim of this conuuiuliiy are
undo there for use in manufactories
if various kinds , but chiully for smelt
ng gold and silver ores. Yet in the
egion known ni thu Gunnison , ox-
( Hiding far beyond any lines of civil-
/ed settlement yet formed , them is
oal enough to supply the whole Amor-
can continent for centuries. Furtli-
rin'oru , it id of the finest bituminous
nd anthrnuito varieties. It is heliuv-
d that thu anthracite bedj of that re-
ion mo of equal , if not 'renter ux-

vest of Irwin , and on Anthracite
reek , west of Irwin , a distance of
bout sixteen miles. Semi-anthracite
s found on Coal crook , n branch of

ies are on Slate river ; on Coal crook ,
no of its branches ; on Ohio crjek ; on
2anon creek , a branch of Ohio ; on the

The anthracite veins nro from three

urrcd , as there has been no marketer

Both the South Pnrlc and Denver

ays aru extended and tlio freights

products of thuNO fields , anthracite

jenters of population , but. to the tor-

n-entually compete with Pennsylvania

Arrangements are in pi ogress for

: an bo laid down in Denver for eight
to ten dollmy per ton , it will bu very
lurgoly preferred to the softer coals
for doimis'.ic use , and this supple
menting the manufacturing demand ,
will BOOH create a very heavy and
