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. American lrunrat 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 season. Flag Entertainment. At the West Oregon (Jllr Siboul Hulur day Evening. 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 visitors. 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. i. Hands, taq., a member ol lue county g(.Jl'ol board, he began by stating that we ch'ff" t0 ntertaiiiuieiit lor aome- thingmoV,lt,,C"..i0!t:,j ,H.

Prof. Gurley made the closing re marks, and stated that a sufficient sum had been raised to purchase a suitable flag for the new school house, and that it would be raised soon, when they would have another entertainment at which no admission would be charged. He thanked the people for their attend ance, etc. The exercises were closed by singing "America." All who participated in the exercises performed their parts well, and every body was highly pleased with the even ing's entertainment. 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 globe. 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 money.

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.
