Colonel Dosch advises prune
growers' holding Italian prunes not
to be scared by the reports from
Salem. He says that offers of
cents have been refused, in spite of
the report that no more than 6 cents
can be obtained, and that the grow
ers may consider themselves lucky
to obtain that price. He says that
fruit growers can easily get 7 cents
for the larger varieties of Italian
prunes. Furthermore, he says, the
world's supply does not cut any
figure in the marketing of the Ital
ian prunes. This varietjhas a de
mand aside and independent from
any other prune. In other words,
the Italian prune is not affected by
the demand or supply of other

If Croker will hereafter devote

Washington, D. C, Nov. 12.
Nearly every Senator and Repre-
Mutative who has been to Wash
ngton slnco the election, regradless
of political affiliation, has expressed
leaiure that the result of tho elec
tion was so overwhelming that tho
talk of fraud and corruption which
has disgusted so many alter some
of our national elections has been
conspicuously absent this time.
It ia also almost gonerally agreed
that it was the great prosperity of
the country that brought about tho
result rather than blind devotion
to any political party. That belief
is based upon the generat idea that
tho average man who is doing well
is averso to taking the chances in
volvcd in making ft change, even
when he believes that the change
might be beneficial. The rejoicing
of the dominant party has also been
remarkably freo from partisan ran
cor, which has had a good effect on
the spirits of the defeated and add
ed to the all around pleasantness

Senator Mason, who by the way
is a regular and welcome visitor at
tho White House, has announced
his intontlon to champion at the
coming session of Congress what he
regards as the most important in
ternal improvement contemplated
in tho middle west legislate
providing for a survey to enlarge to

the presnt Chicago drainage canal
to connect tho great lakes and the
St. Lawience and the . Mississippi

S. between the Alleghaney and the

picturesque and startling, not a few
of theso writers have entirely dis
pensod with that very useful article
known as common sense. Tho
mere ceremony of swearing in the
chosor ruler of more than 70,000,000
will of itself be imposing and mag
nificent, and there can be no doubt
that it will occur amidst proper
surroundings. But all talk about
surrounding it with all the gor-
seousness and costliness of tho
greatest royal pageant Kuropo has
ever seen the London Jubilee pro
cession is poppycock, and can
only find believers among those who
do not know where the money comes

and the committee does not bind it
self to return it. It must be evi
dent that the amount raised in this
way wil) not be large enough to
provide much royal gorgeousnes.
Representative Payne, of New
York, chairman of the bouse ways
and means committee, which will
meet on the 20th inst to consider
the question of a reduction of inter
nal revenue taxes, does not pretend
to say what the committee will do,
but it is very evident from his
guarded talk that he isn't expect
ing a bill that will make sweeping
reductions. There is good ground
for the belief that the bill which
will be reported to the house will
not make reductions of more than
$20,000,000 a year, and even that
much would be doubtful if the
president had not so strongly com
mitted himself in favor of reducing
these taxes. The prevailing idea
in official and congressional circles
seems to be that uncertainty as to
the immediate future in China and
in the Philippines, makes it advis
able for this government to have a
stiff surplus of cash on hand to
meet any possible emergency.

A few weeks ago a merchant in
Washington county, Oregon, bought
a lot ol "minced ham" from the
Hammond racking company. Im
n.fter lie commenced to
sell it his customers hegan to com
plain that it made them sick. One
man was made very sick by the
stuff. Tho merchant at once noti
fied both tho Hammond Tucking
company am Dairy and Food Com
missioner Bailey. The packing
company sent word to return the
meat and upon its arrival in Port
land Mr. Bailey took possession of
it. He sent a package of tho meat
to tho Oregon Agricultural college.
Jt was there discovered that " tho
meat was heavily charged with sul
phurous acid and had evidently
been treated with sodium sulphite
to prevent decaying. This Btuff
was put up in largo skin casings
and it is apparent that the em
balming procoas took place at tho
company's factory. How much
meat fo treated the company has
sent throughout the.. United Slates
nobody, knows. Probably for , a
very sulliciont reason this particu
lar lot received' a stronger dose thai
usual, but any meat which is pro
served by sulphurous acid ia very
injurious to health. If Oregon were
without a food commiHsioner this
case would ' have passed without
notice As it is, the case against
the company will be prosecuted
with vigor, Tho punishment which
can bo inllictcd under tho law will
bo wholly inadequate. What the
company will feel most will be the
publicity which' will result and
which ought to deter a great many
people from buying anything pack
ed by this company.' Rural North
-V r . . i -A
number of farmers of Clacka
mas county aro sowing their wheat
stubble to clover for the double pur
pose, of benefitting thoir. land by
change of crop, and contributing to
tho dairy interest. Land that has
been sown to wheat for, many suc
cessive years will be grateful, as
land can be, for the change, and
will show its gratitude, as land
does' by. producing two bountiful
crops of clover hay next. season, -reserving
for its own enrichment a
sod that can, if desired, he turned
under by the plow in the fall.
