The local market has slumped to about 50 cents a sack, but even at that low price it is next to impossible to sell a large quantity, and unless there is an improvement in the market thousand of sacks will not be dug this season.

The bulk of the trade has gone to Colorado, while California, which usually sells most...

Press The Santa Barbara Press is still trying to keep alive sectional strife between Lompoc and Santa Maria, and for what reason, or what it hopes to o-ain by its occasional references along tins line, we, or any of us of the northern portion of the county, are at a loss to understand.
