FOREIGN IMMIGRATION CIRCULAR.
The following is a list of persons not
Allowed to land in the United States
under the provisions of the immigra
tion law as passed by the lust congress,
and sent out in circular form by Secre
tary Foster of the treasury department :
"The attention of corporations and
jothers engaged in bringing alien im
migrant into the United States is in
ited to the accompanying copy of the
general laws pf congress designed to
regulate immigration. It will be ob
served that the law, as amended March
3, 1891, prohibits the landing in the
United States of the following classes
ot aliens: 'Idiots, insane persons,
paupers cr persons liiely to become a
public charge, persons suffering from
ja loathsome or a dangerous contagious
disease, persons who have been con
victed of a felony or other infamous
.crime or misdemeanor io vol ving moral
torpitode not including persons con.
ricted of political offenses only; poly
jgamists, persons coming under con
tract to labor.' All corporations and
.others bringing into the United States
alien falling within any 'of the pro
hibited classses are required by law,
tinder heay penalties, to return them,
at their own cost, to the ports or coun
tries whence they came, and this re
quirement holds good for one year
after any such prohibited alien may
have entered the United States."
The circular further states: "The
evident disposition of many steamship
lines, under the pressure of sharp com
petition, to gather np in Europe and
bring to the United States all who,
with or without the aid of others,' can
pay the now trifling cost of a steerage

Total taxable property

It will be readily n by" the above
that the exemption for indebtedness,
386,496, is a little over one-fourth the
taxable property of tho county, and
the exemptiofi, (122,408, added to the
indebtedness makes (d08,904, or over
one-third of the entire wealth, leaving
out of a total taxable property of (1,
543,467, only (1,034,563 that revenues
are derived from for the maintenance
of the county government. This de
plorable state of attain is one that can
be remedied only in one way, and that
is through the legislature. Repeal
the exemption for indebtedness law
and Columbia county would this year
receive one-third more taxes than tin.
der the present condition of things,
thereby perhaps, reducing the las levy
from about 25 to 16 mills, and the
wealth of the county would be taxed
equally. At present the greater por
tion of the county reveuue comes from
the middle classes, who are neither
poor uor rich, but in fair moderate cir
cumstances. This class of people are
mostly farmers who siye in their prop
erty at a fair valuation and who do
not claim an indebtedness unless such
indebtedness really exists. There will
be no remedy for this until the exemp
tion for indebtedness clause is stricken
from our statutes books.
l he latest reports Irom Chin are

The following is the report for the
week ending, Saturday, August 22,
If Cortland is tborouhly in earnest
- regarding an open river she will sub
scribe the (250,000 neccessary to build
be portage road from The Dalles to
the mouth of the Deschutes. This
will give her the wheat trade of the
Inland Empire, and without a cheap
rneans of transportation by river boats,
the cities on the Sound will secure the
bulk of the trade. There is no deny
ing the fact that Fuget Sound is one
of the best harbors on the Pacific
Coast, and with the generous policy pur
sued by the Northern Pacific, has
many advantages pver the mouth of
the Columbia. It is true the jetty
has improved navigation wonderfully,
and it is now perfectly safe to enter at
all stages of the tide. But to make
the Columbia the highway of com
merce for the interior northwest, and
to build up the big city on that river,
portage railroads must be constructed
on the Oregon side, and fhe most im
portant of these is the one. from The
Dalles to dead water above.

where only a few drops foil. The tempera
ture was below the average in the fore part
of the week, but rose rapidly toward the
close-until Way, when it was from 90 to
100 degrees except along the coast.
Crops The rain did no damage to the
grain, but delayed harvesting and threshing
for one day. There was some slight bene
fit in the rain to corn and vegetables.
Winter wheat is all cut and most of it
threshed. Spring grain is being cut Some
smut exitts in Douglas and Jackson
counties. Grain is yielding better than
was expected in every county. Fifty-six
bushels per acre from a sixteen-acre field
is reported from Yamhill county. In Polk
county the wheat generally averaged over
thirty bushels per acre ; most counties
have an average yield of from twenty-five
to thirty-fire bushels per acre. The wooly
aphis is doing damage to orchards in Yam
hill county. The onion crop was injured
by lice in Washington county, but as the
acreage was increased the total crop will
be above the average. Hop growers now
expect to gather a very fair average crop.
In Douglas, Jackson and Curry counties
the first crop of figs are over and the second
crop are setting, jne early peaches are
about over and the second crop will be ripe
next week, beveral carloads a day are be
hig shipped from Jackson county. Jose

TV eather Rain fell in most counties on
the 19th and 20th, varying from a sprinkle
to .14 of an inch. The teperpature bss been
above the average and rose towards the
close of the week, until today it ranged
from 90 to 106 degrees.
Crops There was no damage dons by
the rain ; though the harvesting operations
were delayed for about a half a day in
various localities. Winter wheat is gener
ally all threshed and considerable of the
spring sown grain has also been threshed,
except east and south of the Blue mount
ains. All reports indicate tbe yield to be
above the expectations of the farmers, ex
ceptin parts of Wasc county, where the
hot weather in July dfd some damage. In
some parts of Union county rust is observa
ble. In this county harvesting operations
are Just beginning. In Sherman, Morrow
and Umatilla counties yields of from thirty
to forty bushels per acre are commonly re

large shipments are daily made. Wheat
prices have an upward tendency, and ex

Washington, Aug. 111,
Owing tu a number u( Important )m'iltc
nutttera to which ho in-sirus tu itive hit per
sonal attention, tho president will return
to Wellington early in September instead
of waiting tuilll Oitnler, as ha been the
general expectation . Not the least of these
important matters is a reciprocity treaty
with Vvmwncln, which U ready fin his ac
ceptanw. This treaty Is a niotf agrcenhh
surprise to the ptibliu at it whs supposed
that the rejection of the llrt treaty by (he
congress of VeMcxmila had Indefinitely post
poned reciprocity with that country j but tl
seems that the congress acted uhii a mis
understanding of tho probnhlo effect ol
such an agrvement upon the revanuM oi
Veiteii.eU, which ore utmost nil raised hi
Import duties, but seeing It-i error before ad
journment it author iud the president of
V enezuelti to negotiate and put Unto effect
similar aitrcsmcntj and praetlciilly the
same treaty which was rejected bv the eon
gressof that country now only awaits the
sanction und proclamation of PrcoMcii;
Harrlwn to go into effect.
This nws will nut be relished bv the
democrats, because many of them have
talked too much about the failure, )f reripru
eity , having taken tho rejection of tho first
treaty by the Yenexucla congress to mean
that our Kuropean rivals hud succeeded in
putting a brake on tho reciprocity wheel,
lteciprocity was never more populur than it
Is now . and as Us benefits are practically
demonstrated It will grow mora iKipular
There are other treaties well under way,
but those catinot be epken of bv name

ami that it proposes to have reciprocity with
every country, the products of which art
necessary to us and our prosperity.
Another subject of imjiortance which will
probably be taken np by the president
soon after his return, la ttie refusal of the
cattle men to obey the orders which have
been issued to them by the interior depai t
ment directing them to vacate the Cherokee
outlet. District Attorney Speed, of Okla
i i- ,
noma, wuo was in uiwn a week ago, re
ported that not a single cattle man luul
either moved or taken any steps luoking to
an early removal. An otlleial of the interim
department told me today that ho hadn't
-the slightest doubt that the president wouIO
order force to be used, If necessary, to drive
these cattle men from the outlet.
Washington has been quite full of people
this week. Kir.-it. in importance is the an
nual meeting of the American Association
fwr the Advancement ef Science which met
here on Wednesday and will remain hi ses
sion for some days to come; next n as a re
union of the old time telegraphers and the
annual meeting of the military telegraphers,
which occupied Wednesday and Thursday,
and which was brought toa close last night
with a meeting which was connected by
wire with every imiortant telcgrnph office
in the United States. Pimmn.tter General
Wauamaker came over from his m linnet
residence especially to address this meeting
and he made a most Interesting speech,
and, judging from the constant and con
tinued applause, be pleased the veteran key

bodies the annual regatta of the NntiW
Association of Amateur Oars men was helu
on the Potomac river Tuesday and Weduea
day. Take it all in all we had quite a lively
week of it.
