f Fur was the chief and almost
the only industry . when we ac
quired the territory. But as the
fur trade declined the salmon in
dustry arose mounting from
$43,000 in 1881 to $1Q, 000, 000 last
year. Gold, at present, is the
most valuable product. Very
possibly,, as agriculture and other
industries arise in the next few
years, gold will become relative
ly unimportant. -

Impressed with the future of
the Pacific Northwest in'agricul
ture, delegates to the national
convention of the ; Association of
American Agricultural - Colleges
and Experiment Stations have
returned home after holding' a
week's convention at Portland.'
Those in attendance expressed
themselves as surprised at the
manifest agricultural' wealth
here. The fertility of the soil
and the progress made in agri
cultural aroused much comment.
The visitors Were enabled to see
Various parts of the" State" by
special train as guests of the
the r various communities.' So
highly pleased were they that the
excursionists passed a resolution
of thanks to their
and spoke in very, high terms of
the country inspected. Since the

a larmer receiving, gooas irom
Chicago, says the . Muscotah,,
(Kan.,) Record. The goods!
were in the line and same as - he
had been carrying for years.' He
approached the farmer and said:
"I could have sold you . every
article you have there - for the
same money .that you paid the
Chicago house and saved you the
express besides." .
"Then , why on earth didn't
you say so?" answered the
farmer. "I s have taken the
Muscotah Record for. years,
and have never seen a line about
you -. selling .these . goods. The
Chicago house advertising in the
paper quoted prices oh their goods
askingf oj? my ' trade and; they
got it. Now you have no kick
coming, as I did not know you
had for sale the article I ordered.
I am no mind reader."
visitors f are hard-headed ; scien
tists who are hot given to making
unwarranted statements,. .; their
opinions of the Northwest and its
future in agriculture may be tak
en seriously. These were noth
ing short of glowing. The fer
tile soil, the : favorable climate,
organization and intelligence of
the farmers here and their sue
cessful methods, and rich oppor

agriculture in this favored sec

dent has been the;ause of a new
record being set for Oregon fruit.
Some admirer has purchased two
prize boxes of ' Winter Banana
apples from a Hood River or
chard, paying $25 per box for
them, and - will present them to
the nation's ; executive. As the
apples will run about 32 to the
box,: the buy will spend about 75
cents lor each apple, a price
never , before, so far as known,
paid for ; Oregon apples. ; Of
entertainers fcourse the careful selection and
packing of the fruit for shipment
to: the White House accounts for
a large part of the almost. fal
ulous price. :
President i Taft, who comes to
Portland October 2, has been in
duced to cut out a golf game that
had been planned for him there
and make a public address so that
his admirers here may- have an
opportunity to hear him speak,
It was first arranged to have the
big President kept somewhat in
tion ol the country,, all were , a V, c -, " netirp
by a limited number. It now
appears that in addition to mak
ing a public address at the Ar
mory on the afternoon of Oc

church on the following day.
Oregon's annual trek to the
hop fields has commenced. Train
after train .is discharging its
human cargoes on both sides
of the Willamette : river. The
youth and beauty of the land go
to the I Oregon ;hop fields1 for
play, but there is a sprinkling of
gray' ' heads ' here and there
Picking hops is neither all -play
nor is it all work. S The:: Septem
ber mornings and sunnyj after
noons bring health and the aroma
rom the hops - induce intense
appetites and sound sleeping. !
The hop fieldsfurnish recrea
tion for thousands who would be
unable to take vacations other
wise. The ' college man goes to
hoplields to make" money,'- the
invalid goes because the , busy-
air of the": camp-; and;;, health
giving surroundings " are better
than any resort of an ' artifical
nature. .:: O,;:.-.
The'Oregon hop picking season
compares with the corn huskings
of the middle west and the maple
sugar camps of New England
except that the . hop picking- is
usually on a larger scale than
the others. It is seldom that
the season begins as early as it
has begun this year. The season
opens usually about September 6.
This year picking began Thurs
day in some yards and will be
general by the latter part of next
When 50 cents a box or $1 per
hundred pounds is paid for pick
ing hops, - the"- average ' picker
can : make . good . wages. : The
ayerage female picker will make
from $2 to $3 a day : and the
average male' picker from '$3 to
$4, while rapid - pickers of
either sex may make from . $5 to
$6 per day. It is not always the
male picker who is the - best, but
he is usually the "steadiest work
er. . The person 'who works in the
hop' fields has a ravenous ap
petite. His diet depends - upon
the enterprise of the meat man
and the baker who comes into
the yard every day selling food.

ALASKA AS A HOME.
Alaska, with about one-fifth
the area of the remainder of the
United States, contains less' than
100,000 inhabitants.' That it can
support a population of three to
six millions is an opinion resting
upon facts. . . , ; ;
Sixty miles beyond the arctic
circle the hardier garden -vege
tables, such as potatoes,"" cabbage
and cauliflower, are already raised
successfully. At the farthest
station of the agricultural de
partment more than 500,. miles
north of Sitka barley and bats
. are brought to maturity every
year, and in normal years winter
wheat and rye, spring wheat and
.buckwheat are harvested. The
total Alaska area suitable to cul
tivation is estimated at a hundred
thousand square miles. Finland,
substantially in the same latitude,
and with as cold a climate, has
about 50,000 square miles of cul
tivable area, apd supports a pop-
. Ulation of .3,000,000. It is a fair
argument that Alaska can do at
least half . as well as Finland., Do-
. ing fully, aslwell the territory,
with twice the arable area, would
support 6, 000,000 "people.
In This Valley
are respectable people intent up
on earnirig-money to assist in
the winter's expense. V -r"

consequence, r the A output was
larger than it has been in recent'
years and the quality was better.
At the same time . there was a
sharper demand from buyers and
prices were higher.
Comparison By Years
' The total wool clips of Oregon
and their value in the past four
years were as follows:
-v - ' Pounds , - Value

1907.............. 20,000,000 - 3,800,000
1906......;.;...... 18, 000,000 3.240,000
The quality of the wool was
excellent. - It was of better staple
than last year, though of heavier
shrinkage, owing" to the dry
was 23 cents, rwhich was realized
on a part of one clip at Shaniko.
The larger part of the best grades
sold between 20 and 422 cents
Some scouring wools went at 13
cents,' and other " coarse grades
moved at prices up to 17 cents.
For the clip, as a 1 whole, the av
erage price was about 19 cents,

Campers and visitors at the Yachats
have been much annoyed this season by
the presence of dead sea lions on the
beach. Some of the sports still rinsjsts'
in killing these animals "just for fun.".
If they were used for any" purpose it
would be different but when the carcass'
is left to decay on the: beach we fail
to see wnere tne tun - comes in. it is
true the sea lions destroy a large num
ber of fish but the few that can be
"killed will make very little "difference
in that line. . .
