Wabiunoton. June 22. The Ciuwtte
today in diHciissiiii I'reaideut llarriaou's
altidude on the auhject of silver says:
ilarriaon is very uneasy about the
feeling in the west in the rear rank of
the republican party In favor of the free
coinage of silver, lie is as atrongly
optHioed to this now as be aver was and
will nut sign the silver hill under any
pressure, hut he naturally desires tu
avoiil rucIi a contingency. It is said
that the silver plunk in the Ohio plat
form, just adopted, waa suhmitled to
Mr. Ilarriaon and approved by him, and
that it will he urged hy the republican
national convention as a compromise, if
tlieconilitionsare not changed lielor; that
event occurs. The Ohio idea is simply
an endorsement of the coinage act of the
billion-dollar congress, with the argu
ment that it has secured the coinage of
all the silver product of American mines.
Whlaky Traaait Olala.
Milwai'kks, June 19. A crisis In the
affairs of the great whisky trust is at
haml. Wholesa'e dealers are tiring of
the avstem of the legal blackmail em
ployed by the trust, and distilleries out
side the trtiat are just now adding largely
to their facilllics of manufacturing
The trtiat owes its Bttackholders tHa.OlH),
000. while it has allowed scores of great
diat'lleriee to decay. Of these, eight
were once prosieroua Milwaukee inetiu
tions, in this the great whinky clearing
houses of the Northwest. These facts
have just reached the surface through
the announcement today that six of the
Inrgest wholesale houses of Milwaukee
hitherto dependent tiKin the trust, hail
broken away from the organization, and
are to erect a large disiiliory with a
capacity of 50,000 gallons daily, the
purpoHo being to buck the trust, as
Sliulclt did. In view of the practical
certainty that the purchase of the Shu
felt andVahnut In Chicago will be lol
lowetl by a general rise in prices, those
who have pledged allegiance to the
triint are apprehensive of the worst and
would like to go out. On the other hand
those who ure out are fearful that they
may le forced In, and are consequently
watching every move with anxiety.
Nsw Yohk, June 21. E, Uoodsell, a
wholesale iinporterofCalifornla products,
said today :
America will henceforth produce her
own prunes, and French and Turkish
growers will have to take a back seat.
The annual consumption of this fruit in
this country is about 100,000,000 pounds.
l.aNt year California produced about
17,aX,000, Prunes can be raised in Cal
ifornia for about 3 cents a pound, and
sold at a profit of 4 cents. Turkey, in
my opinion could nut profitably produce
them at 2 cents, which would be neces
sary in view of the tariff of 2 cents per
pound. To this the coat of transporta
tion must be added. Moreover, the soil
in Turkey and France is greatly exhaust
ed, prunes having been raised there for
over a century, while in California the
treoB have not been planted for more
than twenty years. .

THE NEW HAII.I:()4l.
A l'orlland Journal Interviews Mr.
H. II. Scolt, of Scotts Mills.
The following from the Portland Daily
Dispatch will be of interest to the people
of Clackamas county, inasmuch as the
projector is a resident of Clackamas
county and the railroad mentioned is a
branch of the proposed system to be
built from Oregon City to Wilhoil:
Mr. U. II. Scott, of Scotia Mills,
Clackamas county, is in the city, having
just returned from San Francisco, where
he has been in the interest of the people
in bis locality in regard to building a
railroad from Mt. Angel to Scott's Mills,
a distance of seven miles. It is proposed
to build this road by the citizens along
the line, Mr. Scott himself paying a
good share of the cost. He has been be
low endeavoring to secure the patent
which has lately been granted to the in
ventor of the Wooden Track Bystem, by
which it is claimed the road can be built
ami equiped at an expense not to exceed
$1500 per mile. It is stated that under
this patent, a road can be constructed
which will serve all purposes of the
narrow gauge system, while the costs of
construction is less than one fourth, and
the road can be kept in order at a nomi
nal expense. We learn that the road
bed is already surveyed and that there
will be no trouble in securing the right
of way, besides some of the enterprising
citizens along the line will contribute
means in aid of the entarprise. There
is no doubt but what the investment of
even a more expensive road would be
profitable, at it runs over a section of
the best agricultural lands in Clackamas
and Marion counties, and while the
products along the line are quite large,
at present, this road would materially
increase the exports, besides would be
ot incalcuable benefit to the property
ownors and tend greatly to settlements
further back on the loot lulls. Mr.
Scott met with cobsiderable encourage
ment and feels confident that the roml
will bo constructed during the present

A CUOWDKD HOI'S AND SUCCESSFUL KN-TSUTAlNNKNT.
The flag entertainment given at the
! West Oregon City school house under the
management of the teachers of the
'school, Prof. 8, A. D. Uui ley and Miss
Grace Baird, was a great success. A
, large number of visitors were present
Iroin Uregon City, ana the old school
house was fkirty packed with interested
The exercises opened with a song.
"King Merry Bells," by the school,
which was followed by the opening ad
dresa delivered by Alex. Thomson, su
perintendent of the Clackamas county
schools Sunt. Thomson held the inter
ested attention of the audience with ap
propriate remarks, and began by stating
that Clackamas was the banner county
in the state of Oregon In the matter of
raising Hags over the school houses ; that
30 or 40 of the school districts of Clacka
mas county were possessor of the na
tional flag ; that Damascus had the prize
flag of the stale, given as a reward to a
voung lady by the publishers ol "The
Youth's Companion" for the best com
position on that all important theme.
Mr. Thomas spoke of the advantages of
republican form of goverument and said
that in this country a member of a na
tional representative body must be a
member of the district which he repre
sents, and that 1'rtsident Harrison made
his recent tour of the United States with
out an armed guard, something that
monarchs of many other nations dare
not do. He said that every boy snd girl
in this country that behaved themselves
waa as good as an armed monarch, and
impressed on the children the import
ance of revering and honoring the flag.
Mi. Thomson then asked the children if
they would not rather have Bingor Her
man represent them in Congress than
anyone else, with one accord they an
swered, yks. He urged upon them the
importance of patriotism, and was
heartily cheered at the close of his ad
dress. Next came a recitation by Ada Moenke
"In Spite of the Funny Man."
After a nong by Katie Baird "I'm a
Gypsy," an address was delivered by E.

THE HOP LOUSE DANGER. '
Mr. E. Meeler, the Veteran Hop
Grower Gives His Opinion.
Having visited more than twenty hop-
vards within the lust four days, and
having conferred with intelligent ob
servers who have just made the rounds
of the hopyards, I can say that I do
not believe there is a hop-yard in Oregon
or Washington but now has the so-called
lice present. 1 know such is the case
with the twenty hop yards that I have
visited in person without a single ex
ception. I think I know these so-called
lice are the 'Btmie that are to be found
on the willow, the "dog fennel," tbe
nak, hazel, maple and other growths ; I
know the yards are invariably affected
ihe earliest and worst on the ontBide
rows, showing conclusively that these
come from the surrounding vegetation.
Mow I also know we have had -these
same "pests" with us in the Puyallup
at least fifteen years and believe they
were there whan Adtttn was born or
since vegetation existed on this part of
The English grower doe not dread
the "fly" as the hop louse is there
styled, knowing full well by past exper
ience that he ran destroy them, and
does it effectually by following the
work into the third, or mayfie the
fourth generation. He uses quassin in
iroportion of one pound to fifteen (Tal
ons of water and one and one-half
pounds of whale oil soap, spraying tha
jrards with horse power machine, go
ing over them several times, if need tie.
These same lice may aome morning
disappear as mysteriously as they have
come; the preaent wet, muggy weather
is doubtlea juat the condition that will
multiply them fastest; yet so long as
the vine outgrows the "peit" and shows
the strong vigorous growth as now, so
long hop-grower had best go slow in
going down Into their packets for
spraying-machines and material.
I snail myself net "spray," except in
an experimental way, and portion of
my hopyards until there are far differ
ent conditions than now, and advise the
hop farmers of Oregon and Washington
to keep hands off. believing that to do
otherwise is simply a waste of time and

Objects to an Item Published by a Com
mittee. Ed. Enterprisk : I read in your is
sue of the 14th inst ., an item in regard
to the Fourth of July ceiebration at Mr.
Edward Hughes in which we think there
is a mistake.
As I understand it this celebration is
not got up by any one church, but by
the people in general, regardless of sect
or creed, and is to be a genuine old fash
ioned celebration of the Foui th. We
were born under the stare and stripes
and have always lived under them, and
with no preventing providence, will
die under them. Our grandsires, both
paternal and maternal, fought through
the revolution to gain the freedom and
liberty which we enjoy. Consequently
we have a reverence for that dav and
when we are called to celebrate it we
celebrate it in honor to those who
fought to gain our independence and
not for any sect or creed.
