The Weather Crops Fruit Vege
tables For Week Ending
Weather Showers continued from
last week up lo Friday, in the northern
portion and along tlie coast; in the
southern counties but little rain fell.
The total rainfall from August 1st to Htli
at Portland was 1.13 Inches, decreasing
to 0.11 ol an inch at Hnseburg. From
one to two inches fell along the coast.
This is the first rain on record, covering
seven days, that has occurred the first
part of August. Cloudy, cool weather
continued up to the 10th, and today is
clear though cool.
The temperature averaged 04 degrees
for the week being 2 degrees cooler than
the preceding week. The night temper
ature was the same, 50 degrees, but the
deficiency was in the daytime, which
averaged "2 degrees. The highest
teir.perature for the week was72degrees,
the lowest, 52 degrees.
Crops The rains delayed harvesting,
and may have done some slight damage
to grain in shocks on low land, but as a
whole, the rain did practically no dam
age, except to delay work. Harvesting
will begin at'sin today and will be
actively prosecuted. Some little thresh,
ing has been done and the result . have
beeu better than was expected. A
more general spirit of e conragement
prevails throughout the country. It
must be admitted thut the grain crop is
not equal to former years, yet yields ol
wheat 25 to 35 botdiels per acre and oats
50 to 60 bushels per acre are commonly
reported. Failures are spoken of when
the yields aie much less than those
figures, yet there are few sections of the
world that will produce wheat year after
year and yield even 25 bushels of No. 1
wheat lo the acre, and th:s without
manure eddod to the soil. As the
greater portion of Velt r.i Oregon lias
always grown 2'i or more bushels of
wheat lo the acre, a less yield causes
the former to be discouraged. Spring
sown grain lias made some improve
ment since the rain, but much ol it was
so well advanced that the rains can be
of but little if any benefit.
Fruit- Some correspondents report
that the rains caused more fruit to fall.
All conditions appear to be against fruit
Ibis year. Special reports as to fruit
have been received, in addition to those
repotted last week, The correspond
ent at Langlois, Curry county, reports
that the petite, silver and golden prunes
have very good crops on tbe trees. The
Tragedy prune has a fair crap . The
Abundance; Satrnma and Rhine CI ouds
have poor crops, while the Italian and
German prunes are an entire failure.
The young trees are making a pheno
menal growth. The peach, apricot and
applo crops continue to be reported as
poor, while pears are generally a fair
crop. It must be trankiy admitted that
western Oregon has this year the
poorest fruit crop, in iiantity and qual
ity, that she has ever hid. Late berries
are quite plentiful, but the peri id of
dry wealher from June I'J to August I
was very injurious to them.
Vegetables The rains were of great
benefit to gardens and vegetables.
They were especially beneficial to late
planted potatoes; before tbe rain there
ash danger of the poiato crop being
shoit, while now the crop will be fair.
All vegetables are making rapid and
Tbe rains were of inestimable beiielll
lo pastures and the second bay crop.
A correspondent in Tillamook county
repcrts clover bay yielding live tons lo
The rain put out the forest fires rind
cleared the air of smoke. The wealher
is now perfect. Math warmer weather
ami no rair. will prevail this week.
The bop maiket is 'wholly devoid of
new features of interest. Crop advices
do not in dicate any change in the posi
tion from previous reports. The yield
in this state will undoubtedly he much
lighter than last year, but with con
tinued favorable maturing weather it is
thou slit the quantity will not show
quite so great a shortage as expected
from earlier estimates and there does
not appear to be anv special anxiety
shown to make contracts. Nothing
new in loreign or Pacific coast advices.
The movement here in spot goods is
small, but current receipts are so light
that slocks show a gradual reduction.
Prices show no change but at best are
little more than nominal. Purchasers
would have to pay ab tut top doted
figures, but lo go out to look fo: an out

obtained. .V. Y. Price Current.

Salmon Skasos Oi.oskii. The salmon
fishing season on the Columbia river
and its tributaries ended last .Monday.
The close season lasts til' September 10,
and in the Clackamas river until the 1st
of October. The big run of saining
which came into the river the last of
July did not get very far up tlie rivci,
and it is probable that they n
desirous of being allowed to keep on fish
ing in order to make up for the time lost
by the strike. Fish have been taken in
vast numbers In the lower river, ever
since the big run came in, and mun
that have liccn caught could not be care i
for. A great many dead fish, which it
was necessary to throw away, hav?
been seen floating in the river !xilov
Astoria. So far no fish to seak of have
reached The Dalles, and some hopes aro
entertained by fishermen there that tho
flsb now in tho lower river may not pass
there until after Septemlwr 10, when
they will get their share of the school.
A large numlior of persons are preparin
for the fall fishing, the large amount n
fall fish packed last year, and the read,
sale for them, having given a boom, t '

Orkoon Hoe Phobi'kct. The Imp
brokers' agent in Salem are watching
the growing vines throughout the Wil
lamette valley with jealous eyes and
nothing every change in the conditions
and prospects closely. They report the
outlook fair for a good yield where tb
yards have been cultivated carefully.
In many fields not a day's work has been
dono, while others have been cultivate I
partly but not sufficient to have a very
promising outlook. Only about one
half of Oregon's acreage has liecn care
fully cultivated and, in consequence,
only alsiut 50,000 bales of hops can he
expected to be placed on the tnarkc t
this year, where 100,000 bales were sol.'
last year. Lice in tbe yards are verv
scarce at present, a very few being re
ported, this being a very favorable show
ing as compared to last year's condition
at the this time. Diligent inquiry 1ms
brought to light the fact that one grower.
John Hornsberry, of (iervaic. has dono
some spraying s i far this year, nr. 1 one
hop dealer was heard to remark yester
day that his was probably done only to
be on the safe side in .case a few I ice
should show themselves. There nro
no new hop houses being built this y cm ,
as those already constructed will furnish
ample room to take care of tbe crop.
Contracts are being made at (1 mt cents

percent, of this year's crop has already
been contracted for and more contracts

is now quite a little of last year's crop
