against 155 for Bryan. Kentucky with
only 13 voles is in doubt. McKinley's
vote in 1890 was 271 to 176 for Bryan
MeKinley carries Nebraska by at least
2000 and the republicans count on a safe

carries Indiana by about 32,000. Idaho
goes for Bryan by a small majority.
North Dakota gives a republican major
ity of over 12,000, or about 4 to 1 of the

Oregon apples will be worth $1.00 per
box inside of three v-eeks. Colonel H.
E. Dosch, secretary of the state board of
horticulture, who c'osely follows the
market, bases such an assertion upon
tbe big jump of prices of apples in the
New York market. Baldwin apples
have advanced from $1.50 to $2.50 per
barrel ; Kings, from the same price to
2.50 and f.'l a barrel; York Imperials,
from $1.50 to $4 a barrel. Red table
apples will bring in New York over
these prices an advance of 25 to 50 cents
a barrel. As soon as these facts become
known, Oregon, apples will naturally
raise a notch in prices, because the local
market is sympathetically effected by
tbe New York quotations. Colonel
Dosch advises growers not to he in too
big hurry to sell. The growing favor
of the better class of Oregon apples for
the export trade, taken together with
the failure of the apple crop in the main
Eastern belts, is a good indication the
prices will hit the lop notch. Quite a
number of apples have been placed hy
dealers upon cold storage for Christmas
trade, which helps to strengthen the
