There i not a man in The Dalle who
ba contributed a cent in nitney or time
to the harvest carnival that i not proud
ot the result. It far exceed the most
anguine expectations of any body. The
cash riceipts of Tuesday night repre
sented 7100 ten-cent admission feet.
There waa a natural falling off last
night and a large number of counter-
attraction outside; (till the receipt
represented 4500 teu-cent admission
i fees. Comparisons are not always
' odious, and we have it cn the best au
thority that the tirit night receipts at
! the late Walla Walla fair, in a town of
double the inhabitants of The Dalle,
were not one-third of the first night re
; ceipts here. The management are more
: than satisfied with the result, and are
I living on Easy street to far as the finan- 1
cial outcome is concerned. And this is i
' not the hest of it. lbe vistors are
i plea-ed and delighted.
The general expression is that the
i horticultural display is the finest ever
seen in Oregon, and many of them add,
"or any where else." As one said this

FINED FOR LARCENY OF HAY.
A Jury OtHt V tett a Dateh Flutter or
Moltoaj a T'.n and a Hair or Hay
hi. (I lie If Killed IN.
F. W. Wickham, of Dutch Flat, as
tried yesterday tiefore Justice Brownhill
on the charge of larceny of a ton and a
half of hay. District Attorney Menefee
appeared for the etate and Sam Stark, a
young law ttiidenl, appeared for the
defendant. The juror were J. L.
Thompson, Joseph T. Peters, R. L.
Oaken, lieorge Kratise, John Pashek and
(ten. W. Joles. The complaining wit
ness was Jacob Obrlst.
The testimony was to the effect that
Ohrist bad baled a quantity of hay for
Wickham, and Wickham not paying for
the baling when the work waa com
pleted, Obrist took his pay in about a
ton and a half of hay, which he removed
with Wickham' content from the Wick
ham place and stored in a building.
Obritt consented, before removing the
hay, that Wickham should tiave thirty
days to redeem it at $ a ton. Wick
ham said he would redeem it in two
weeks. At the end of thirty - day
tbe money had not been paid and Wick
ham, without the content of Obritt, re
moved the hay from lit place of ttorage
and tohi it. On ditcoveung that the
bay was taken, Obrltt followed Wick
ham to town and had him arretted.
Thit i believed to be a fair statement
of the eat a It was presented to the
jury, which, notwithstanding the ear
neit and ab'e plea of Wickham 's coun
I, found hito guilty a charged.
Probably because Wickham' act was
the result of hi own folly and imprud
ence and wa a: worst only "construc
tive" larceny, a the lawyer would
probable call it, the justice iutlicted the
lowest fine, r5, or twelve and a half
days in the county jail. Wickham paid
(be fine and was diehrged.

Tbe Portland Commercial Review, of
the 11th instant, contains the following
review of the wheat situation for the
past week :
"The market has been fairly active
and farmers are selling freely at prevail
ing prices. There is no urgent demand
for wheat at Portland or on the Sound,
by either exporters or millers, all hav
ing plenty of wheat for present demands
anu tor some time to come, but are al-
j ways in the market to buy when sellers
do not ask exorbitant prices. The crop
of 1900 has been secured and pretty near
all houeed. Farmers are realizing that
they are getting all the market can
stand and are willing to sell. Competi
tion for parcels of wheat is not very
keen amongst buyers, but all of them
are doing something. Valley wheat is
the only variety that brings good prices,
on account of the short crop in that ter
ritory, and competition is onlv amongst
millers, exporters paying veiy little at
tention to Valley this season.
While foreign advices are of a harden
ing tendency and the market generally
is of a broadening character, there has
been no material alteration in values.
Ten vessels have arrived during the
week, pretty well distributed to the va
rious export houses, and none of the
same will be detained on account of
grain, as everv warehouse here hat
plenty, and it looks as if the month of
October will be one of great activity.
Six vessels have cleared since our last
review, three on Puget sound and three
at Portland. A number of vessels are
due yet this month, and there will be no
detention for lack of grain to go on
board ship. Prices are: Club, 55c;
Bluestem, 58c; Valley, G0o per bushel.
