BIG RETURNS FOR^ORANGES Last Navels Boost Average Price for the Season. With but a few navels left and a fierce demand for all of them, the season for this brnud of ortuigea is approachiuu n whirlwind cli;.°e, prices advancing sharply and buyers acram- blinn for the remainder of the crop. The navel season will cud withiu teu idays—a mouth ahead of last year. Only 500 cars of navels are left in the State, and 450 of them are in the bauds of the California Fruit Growers' Association, From 81.30 to 82 a box a week ago, tho price lias jumped suddenly to 82. 50, ou board cars, California. Tho shipments to date have boon about 2000 ahead of those at this time a yenr ago. Ou tho whole, the season has been satisfactory to ttio growers. The total citrus crop for the season will amount to over 20,000 cars, of which more thau 5000 will ho lonious. Navels total about 17,000 cars, Vulencin.s will be about 4000, and other varieties will be about 2000 cars. At an average price of 81. f>0 a box on board cars hero, the returns to tho growers will be 315,000,000, while for hauling the fruit to market, the transportation companies will divide 89,000,000. A. review of the season shows that at the beginning the outlook,v.aa for the best year in the history of the business. First prices for northern navels in November, for Thanksgiving delivery were 83.15 a box for the best grades. Prices dropped quickly, however, as Florida had a heavy crop, just being marketed, and the financial panic was just getting in its best licks. Some shippers got panicky themselves nnd dumped their fruit onto the market in 'quantities. Prices quickly went to 82.15 and 82.25, delivered, for extra choice fruit. Tho situation was oawod some in December on account of tho light shipments of Floriclus. In February, again, shippers seemed bound to swamp tho markets, shipping an average of 145 cars u day during the month, as against. 1 18 cars iu H)07, 115 iu 1'JOii and 110 cars in 1005. A serious break in prices was prevented only by a judicious handling of the situation by some of tho heavy shippers. For a time, though, it looked as though the bottom bad dropped out. Since that time markets have advanced, and, though prices .have not. been up 10 those of last year, the grower will average something over $1 a box on tho trees --far from a poor,price. From March 1 to May I prices on all grades of navels averaged Sl.fJfi a box, f. o. b., which menus about SI. 25 « bos on the tn-o. About 21M!0 rnoro cars havo gone forward this year th'tn to Iho t-ainc time in 10U". A little more than i 20,000 cars havo been Mhij-pul hii:co , November 1. items From Camp Kmcon.

Once more the Spanish jail-convent swindle has boon worked and Iho victim this time is a ol Covinn, Hrrry Damorol. That tho conspirators did not got tho thousand dollars Da mere mailed to their address in Spain, ii bank notes, in a registered lot tor, does not seem to have helped tho clupo of the plot. The money \viia stolon fiom the envelope somewhere in its transportation between Coviua and its Spanish destination. Just where and by whom the United States postal authorities arc now trying to ascertain. The first bait thrown at the unsuspecting Damerel family by the Spanish tricksters caute in a letter addressed to C. Daincrol, father of Hurry, iu North Dakota. In the letter was tho stereotyped talo of a relative (always young and beautiful avid a woman) who hi^d boon drugged from the confines of a convent and thrust into a noisome dungeon, where she must surely die if her <ond, gon- erous relatives in the United SUitcs did not speedily comp to her aid. Her release from said noisome dutigoon could bo brought about instantly—-if the way were smoothed by 81,000 in United States currency. It would seem Harry's correspondence, which iuoJuded a $25 cablegram and lengthy letters, according to the story he told an "Examiner" reporter yesterday, was .en in Spain, nod presently nil negotiations were arranged satisfactorily, Harry parted with the thousand dollars and sat down to await developments and news of tbo escape of hie dear relative. Tho developments started fast, enrnigh, but not exactly as per schedule Harry first received a letter from tho American consul in Madrid, which advised him succinctly bo wan in tho bands ot thieves, with a wido reputation for this particular method of getting easy niotiev from properly emotional pci'Koi's in tho new country. Harry WIIH advised earnestly to act with speed would lie HUVIS his thousand dollars. Accordingly tho young man in Covina promptly sent by telegraph and cable a peremptory riiossiige to refuse to deliver to the person to whom ho addressed tho communication with its contents, and to return it im mediately to him. Tho letter camo back yesterday. Hut it had boon opened and Hie greenbacks that bud filled it, on its] outward trip woro no longer to bo soon, Then it was that Harry came to tho city and told 1'imtmast or Flint all about it. And now I lie purlullire ofllcialn MIV they will llnd out JI:H|, whoro i hose greenbacks are. l)r Spurgeon Lecture A. REGULARS CARRY STATE Republican Organization Will Control Coming Convention.
