Notwitr.stati iiog a statement made a
few weeks ago, that the bottom had
fallen out of the prune market, yet prices
are gradually going up and now 30a to 40a
ar worth in the neighborhood of ti
cents and some dealers are confident
they will reach the 7 cents mark befoie
the close of the month, says the Salem
ttatesmau. Oregon has almost a mo
nopoly on prunes of this size, and there
can 1m but little question but the de
mand will be quite strong as soon as the
Srst shipments have been disposed of by
the Eistern buyers. There are fifteen or
twenty carloads of prunes in Salem for a
higher price than has yet been offered,
and the holders feel confident they will
be successful in securing it. The action
of the California Cured Fruit Association
is having a very wholesome effect upon
the local market. The Fruit World,
published at Los Angeles, California, In
speaking rd the action of the association,
I eaye :
I "The California Cured Fruit Associa
tion makes the announcement today that
J it is master of the prune situation. It
practically controls today all of the
1 marketable product in this state. The
i c op in the north and northwest is
marketed and most of that bought by the
outside packers in this stite is disposed
"For two weeks the association lias
been quietly playing the card that has
given it absolute control. Harrassed by
the cut-rate business of the ontsidpis, a
joint special meeting of the Cured Fruit
Association directors and the directors
of the Packers' Association was called
two weeks ago, and the request of the
packers for permission to buy up all the
prunes not otherwise controlled on the
outside was considered and the desired
permission granted.
"Immediately agents of the Packers'
Association wera sent scurrying over the
prune area of California, buying primes
at any price they could be obtained for,
with the result that today not a prune
remains in the hands of the producers.
Seventy-five cars were thus acquired. A'l
the prunes that remain today to come
into competition with the association
prod net are in the hands of a few outside
packers and the amount is estimated to
be about seventy-five cars.
''President Bond gave out the follow
ing statement today: 'The California
Cured Fruit Association is practically in
control of all the prunes unsold in this
fate. Through the packers' company,
the remnant of prunes outside of theas
opinion has been purchased. The im
pression that husj been given out, and
tliat has prevailed in the Faster n
markets, that the association would have
to lower its prices for prunes, on account
of the lower price made by outside
packers is without anv sound reason for
npport. The association has possession
in its various warehouses of all the crop
unsold, and no one has the power to
lower the price except the association
itself. This will not be dne, and the
only change of price, if any, willjlie to
raise prices.' "

Chicago, Nov. 20. The city council
took a hand last niuht in the fiuht for

Suez canal. In speaking of probable
legislation on the canal, a prominent
j administration official said: "It is
manifestly absurd to attempt to make a
private national 'snap' of the exclusive
control and nse of the great interoceanic
waterway. To establish such conditions
will be a challenge to all to combine
against us and to compel na to do what
we ought to do hi the spirit of modern
civilization that is to reciprocate the
privileges we receive in the eastern

New York, Nov. 20. There is a grow
ing feeling of impatieuce in London over
the delay in effecting a settlement of the
Chinese questions, says a Tribune cable
gram. The Knglish piess frankly con
fesses that it is hearing about punitive
expeditions to one quarter or another,
and that it conirB it hardly worth
while to keep all China in a state of tur
moil, preventing thereby restoration of
normal trade relations in order to punish
a few criminals who cannot be caught
while the court remains in exile.
Knglish opinion will not be fully ex
pressed until the cues are provided by
the foreign office, but it is fairly safe to
assume that it supports the American
contention that the most urgent require
ment of the situation is the establish
ment at Pekin of a government with the
essential elements of Stability and au
thority. Since there can be no substi
tute for the empress' rule, the return to
the capital seems a foregone conclusion.
The punishment of the princes, espec
ially Tuan, is the chief obstacle to a
settlement. The latest dispatches indi
cate that the European powers are
gradually coming to a decision on the
preliminaries of peace on which general
negotiations may be opened. The trend
of events indicate that the Furopean
powers are slow'v approaching the I
American position on the whole matter.

Milton, Or., Nov. 21. The feature of
the farmers' and dairymen's institute to
day was an earnest, spirited address by
Hon. E. L. Smith, of Hood River, urging
the fruitgrowers of the Walla Walla Val
ley to combi Tie on the Hood Itiver plan.
His text was "The Codlin Moth," and
after he had spoken about spraying and
kindred topics he asked, "And after yon
have harvested your fruit, what will you
do with it? Is each man going ti com
pete with his neighbor in rushing the
fruit into market and breaking the mar
ket down?"
Mr. Smith then briefly outlined the
Hood River Growers' Association, and
told of the benefits, contrasting the pres
ent entirely satisfactory conditions with
those of a few years ago, when every man
sent his fruit to market on his own ac
count. He stated that under the work
ings of the association t hi 9 year's crop of
strawberries brought at least 50 cents a
crate, or $15,000, more than it possibly
could haVe sold for without co-operation.
He begged fruitgrowers to abandon the
jealousy, suspicion and distrust which
must exist when men lived apart, and to
get together in confiJence on a basis of
This morning's session opened with an
able piper by Dr. William McLean, State
Veterinarian, on "Tnbercnlosis in
Cattle." It provoked wide discussion.
Professor Charles V. Piper, professor
of biology in the Washington State Agri
cultural College, spoke on "Insects aud
Fungus Pests," opening bis subject with
the statement that Oregon ami Washing
ton had already imported in nursery
stock Irom the f.ast all the Known vari
eties except four, viz: Peach yellow,
curculio, potato bug and chinch bog.
He said it was too late now to build a
wall, but not too lute to control the pests
that are here. He dwelt at length on
the fire blight which had destroyed many
trees in this neighborhood. There was
no remedy except to cutoff and burn the
affected branch.
Hou. E. L. Smith described briefly the
good and the poor orchards of Oregon,
and counseled farmers to plant fruit trees
only in deep, well-drained soil, '.12 to 34
feet apart, and to sele, t only well-known
varieties. The best trade now demands
straight carload lots of one kind. From j
his own experience and the reports of
other Horticultural Commissioners in
Oregon, Mr. Smith showed the great
benefit of spraying this year, and said
that the spray pump should be the em
blem of the fruitgrower, and "Spray,
spray" his watchword.
II. M. Williamson, editor of the Rural
Northwest, spoke on "Farmer's Educa
cation," and raid the main reason why
there are not more students in the agri
cultural courses in our agricultural col
leges is that !H farmers out of every 100
believe it is a waste of money to pay the
cost of a college course for their sons who
are to become farmers. The work of
agricultural education must begin with
the farmers through farmers' institutes,

The American embassy is not taking
an active part in the general negotia
tions between the United States and
Great Britain, which will be resumed by
the joint high commission in Washing
ton. Such jjurnals as comment on the
prospect of a speedy settlement of out
standing questions express gratification
over the opened negotiations between
the two governments. The result of
these questions concern Canada closely,
and Secretary Hay and Sir Wilfrid I.u
rier are expected to effect a series of
timely compromises.
The re-opening of the isthmian canal
question, which so far as England was
interested was satisfactorily adjusted in
the Hay Pauncefote treaty, is not de
sired in England. That convention is
regarded in England as a great conces
sion from England to America, aud Sir
Wilifrid Laurier as a broad-minded im
perialist for leaving the Washington ahd
London governments free to settle a
long-standing controversy without ref
erence to Canadian interests.

provided in the Hay-Pauncefote treaty,
which treaty failed of ratification in the

Makkkillk, Nov. 22. Paul Krnger,
former president of the South African
republic, landed here at 10:45 a. m.
Mr. Krnger cannot but be elated r.'i
the warmth of his reception by the peo
ple of Marseilles today. He may be
said to have been borne on an irresista
ble wave of enthusiasm from the land
ing place to his hotel. The broad streets
and boulevards through which the route
lay presented a perfect sea ol human
beings, all gathered there prompted by
me unanimous desire to welcome the
aged Boer statesman.
From the moment the white twelve
oared barge left tiie side of the Gelder
land with Mr. Krnger, who appeared to
be in good health, Bitting in her stern
surrounded by the Boer representatives,
including Dr. Leyds and Messrs. Fischer
and Wessels, a storm of cheers,
and never ceased until Mr. Krnger en
tered Ins hotel. Even then a vast con
course of people remained in front of the
building until Mr. Krnger appeared on
the balcony, where he had to remain for
some time, uncovered, acknowledging
the acclamations of bia thousands of ad
mirers, who continued cheering until
they were hoarse with Bhouting.
In reply to the storm of acclamations
from the solid block of thousands of en
thusiastic people, Mr. Kruger said the
warm reception given bim today would
do much to soothe the wounds in his
heart. The Boers, he added, will never
sacrifice their freedom. They will rather
be extermined to the last man.
Repjying to the addresses of welcome
of the presidents of the Paris and Mar
seilles committee, Mr. Kruger spoke in
Dutch and in a low voice, accompanying
his words with energetic movements of
his hat, which tie held in his right hand.
After thanking the committees for the
warmth of the reception accorded him,
and expressing gratitude for the sympa
thy lie had received from the French
government, he epoke of the war as ter
rible and barbarously conducted by the
British. He said :
"I bavo fought with the savageB, but
the present war is even worse. W'e will
never surrender. We are determined to
fight to the last extremity, and if the re
publics of the Transvaal and Orange Free
State lose their independence, it will
be because thev lose every man, woman
and child."
This declaration which Mr. Kruger
made dispelled at once any impression
that be intends to accept a compromise
from the Briti'h government. His an
nouncement was greeted with a roar of
cheers and cries of "Vive Krnger," "Vive
les Boers," "Vive la Liberie."
