Washington, Dec. 5 Superintendent
Porter has issued a bulletin on the bop
production of the United States. The
rapid manner in which the Pacific coast
states have forged ahead in this industry
is a matter which deserves comment.
The report shows the production of hope
for the year I89 to be 39,171,270 pounds
grown upon 60,212 acres of land in seven
states. The five leading states are :
New York 20,O'3,029
Washington 8,303,20 , .
t. amount..... w,iw
OreKon 3,613,720 !
Oawego county, N. Y., with a yield of
4, Oi8,(87 pounds is the greatest hop-producing
county while Sacramento county
stands at the head in an average yield
per acre witb 16-'(i pounds, and Oregon
stands third in the rank with 1153 pounds
The value of the crop of the United
States for 1KH9 was 14,059.697. The
bulletin also gives the cropotlSOO. The
crop amounted to 36,872,954 pounds,
worth $11,105,425 or nearly three times
the value of the crop of the previous
year. The Pacific coast states respect
ively show the following increase in
product and its percentage, as compared
with the census report of 1880.

The Worltl'a Fair.
Chicago, Dec. 6. The Tribune this
morning prints the following:
The world's fair directors had almost
decided to aak an appropriation from
con n re aa of 15.000,000 rather than re
quest a loan of that amount. The pre
ponderance ol sentiment of the directors
is in favor of an appropriation. This is
due partly to the fact that the directors
are careful readers of the newspapers
and have come to the conclusion the
general expresaion of opinion favors an
appropriation. Then a recent interview
with Cbanncey Depew, in which he
strongly asserted the fitness of an appro
priation by congress, has had some
weiicht. The general belief now is that
an appropriation rather than a loan should
be granted by congress, and the board of
directors will, it is believed, when the
matter is presented to it for determina
tion, vote for an appropriation.
World's Fair Collection.
Portland, Dec. 3 The two solicitors
sent to eastern Oregon and the Will
amette valley by the state board of
commerce to raise funds for an exhibit
at the world's fair in 1893 have returned
to this city having collected f2200 in
money and notes after one month's work.
The solicitors report that the people in
the interior are waiting for Portland to
take the lead in the matter and that
until Portland raises her proportion, it
is useless to teturn to the country for
more money. The chamber of com
merce of Portland has appointed a com
mitted to solicit funds in this city, but
so far they have not reported.
Paris, Dec. 6 Doni
emperor of Brazil, died
Bedford at 12:40 o'clock
ending was peaceful and almost
painless. He received the last sacra
ment of the churcb before bis death.
Princess Inabella and her husband,
Count d'Eau, were present. To the
very last his thoughts were of the
country over which he so long roled,
and in whose welfare, despite the treat
ment accorded him and hi family, he
had so cloeely adhered.
pAKisDev. 6 Cable dispatches from
Rio Janeiro say tbe news of the death o
Dom Pedro met with no official recogni
tion in the Brazilian capital. A number
of merchants, and shop-keepers in
Janeiro closed their places of business for
the day out of respect for the ex-emperor
but otherwise the death of the former
ruler was marked by no demonstration.
Tbe king of Portugal, in a telegram of
condolence, offers the use of the vault of
the Brazanza family for the burial of the
ex-emeror. Dom Pedro wsa fully pos
sessed of his mental faculties to the end.
Daring his last hours the ex-emperor
repeatedly exhorted his heir, the Princecs
Isabella, to pray with him for the peace
and prosperity of Brazil. Hia body haa
been embalmed and other preparations
made for the funeral, which is to be held
Will Probably F.nler,
Chicago, Dec 2 A Washington spe
cial says : New Mexico and Arizona will
probably enter the nnion of states before
the end of the present congress. Utah
will also be an applicant for admission,
but lingering traces of Mormonism will
probably keep her out. It is quite prob
able that there will be no opposition in
either house to the admission of New
Mexico and Arizona if they will agree
not to vote for president next fall.
Cj riia W. Field Wre.
New York, Dec. 6 Dr. Fields said
this atlernoon he did not have such en
couraging hopes about Cyrus W. Field's
condition as in the two previous even
ings. The patient was very much de
pressed mentally, and it was difficult to
build him up under those circumstances.

The Colombia Fleet Ion.
New York, Dec. 6. The Herald's
Panama cable says the elections were
held throughout the United States of
Columbia today, attended by a number
of exciting scones. In this state several
attempts at rioting were made but sup
pressed. It is impossible to say bow
the elections have gone. At the closing
of the polls tonight the liberals are
claiming a big majority in spite of their
Chance Tor a Mexiran Market.
City of Mexico, Dee. 3. The bill
granting the president power to decree
a suspension of duties on cereals and
all classes of animals coining from for
eign countries so as to meet the emer
gency caused by the loss of crops in
in various states, passed the chamber
of deputies. The passing of this bill
will furnish farmers of the West a good
market for their crops.
The Chine Trouble.
Pabis, Dec. 3. The situation in China
is attracting great attention in political
circles in all European capitals. This ia
not only from the fact that the sever J
powers have made demands upon the
Chinese government regarding the treat
ment of their respective subjects in that
country, which the present condition of
affairs prevents being settled, but be
cause of the extreme importance of re
ports that England has come to an un
derstanding with China by which mutual
aid will be tendered in the event of cer
Le Eclair today publishes an inter
view with the Chinese charge d'affaires
here. The representatives of the Chi
nese government express the most im
plicit confidence that the government
will have no occasion to take any ex
treme measures to suppress an attempt
at a general uprising. The charge
d'affaires declares the news lately re
ceived from China, regarding the dis
turbance in several parts of the country,
particularly in the north, ,is greatly ex
aggerated. He further said he wa9
not aware that any power had asked ex
planations from China. " We are quite
ready to assure the powers that we have
done and will continue to do our utmost
to protect Europeans in China. "
A correspondent of Figaro cables from
Shanghai that negotiations are opened tr
brinrf about an alli'nce between England
and China for the purpose of coping witb
Russia. The correspondent adds that
China is sending troops to Pamir to
check the Russian movements in that
part of tbe world, China claiming that
Russia is encroaching on her territory.

London, Dec. 5. A dispatch from
Brazil was received today after a silence
of four days. It 3hows that affairs in
Rio Grande do Sul are assuming a more
Pacific, aspect. Senor Castillo has de
cided not to accept the governorship of
the state. He was governor under the
Fonseca administration, but was per
suaded by the junta to resign . The new
government the other day ordered him
to be reinstated. This created great ox

feared, but Castillo's action in declining
the governorship has caused a better
