A Statistical Reply.
Washington, April 12 J R. Podge,
statisciuii of the agricultu-al depart
ment furnishes a long statistical reply to
the resolutions adopted by the Ht. Louis
Cotton Exchange, that the last agri-
cuuu.a ucpamuem ,,.o, i ... .one-
ous in its conclusions as to wneat and
cotton. Dodge says the "resolutions
are unworthy of the intelligence of an
American commercial association, and
why a band of speculators, suffering
from their own rashness and mad jngde
nients, should so stultify themselves as
to defy ojien facts of production and dis
tribution, which are published daily by
the commercial press of two continents,
is past comprehension."
They Will Not bo Published.
Washinoton, April 11. The Wash
ington gossips who have been waiting
patiently for the publication of the let
ters of young James G Blaine, w ritten
to his wife during the early months of
their married life, are probably doomed
to disappointment. The statement is
made, on what appears to be good au
thority, that these letters will never ap
pear in print. The story goes that a
friend of Secretary Blaine, presumably
Seeretaiy Klkins, has recently visited an
influential friend of Mrs. Blaine, jr., in
New York, has arranged to receive the
letters, or at least to secure a promise
that they shall not be published.
Executive Olerk Discharged.
Washington, April 11. After a
stormy debate in executive session the

the committee on foreign relations and

retary Crounzo, of the treasury depart
ment, will leave here early next, week
for San Francisco and Portland on busi
ness connected with the new public
buildings in tliow cities.

WESTERN OBEOON WEATHER.
Cloudy weather, rain, hail, snow in
the mountains, frosts and lack of sun
shine have been the weather conditions
for the past week. From one and one
quarter to two inches of rain have fallen
during the week, making the soil even
more moist than it already had
been. Hail fell on the is various
localities and snow fell on the moun
tains on the same date. On the 7th
there was no rainfall, on the other days
of the week rain fell. On the mornings
of the 6th and 7th liyht frost and in
places heavv frosts occurred and on the
elevated plateaus, thin ice was ooserved
on the morning ot the 7th.
The weather conditions have been tin-
favorable to the advancement of veteta-
tion and prosecution of farm work.
Spring seeding was almost en
tirely susiended. The soil is very moist
and on low lands is almost entirely
covered with water Fall and winter i
wheat are stooling well and have a good
stand. The cool weather and lack of
sunshine are retarding tbe develop
ment of fruit buds and making them

withstand possible later frosts. The
frosts of the week did no serious damage,
though in sections an occasional tree
was slightly damaged. Codlin moths
were observed in Polk county on the
"th. The present conditions are very
similar to the conditions which pre
vailed during the corresponding week of
18111, which were followed by more fav
orable conditions in the two succeeding
EASTERN OREGON WEATHER.
There was during the week a slight
rise in temperature. Cloudy weather,
rains, Bnow and frost prevailed during
the week. The snow in the counties
south of the Blue mountains has re
mained on the ground. The weather
was similar to that in western Oregon.
But little farming during the week. The
soil is more thoroughly moistened than
it has been several years. Fall and
winter wheat are in a most promising
condition and when the weather permit?
the already large spring ucreage will be
still farther increased. Reports indi-
grain. There was some damgge done
to fruit in the interior of Gilliam county
by the frosts. But in the other sections
no damage is reported . The severe I
weather for this period of the year, has
caused some loss among the young
lambs. While the spring is backward,
yet the grain prospects were never bet
ter for an unusually large acreage and
good yield. The streams are low, but
this is caused by a lack of snowfall and
frost in the ground, which latter condi
tion, allows of the rainfall to soak into
the soil instead of running off into the

view aaya: "Canada's annexation to the
L'niled States i inevitable. The word
Canada does not alone mean that cer
tain part of the North American conti
nent; it means in addition, a certain
part of the North American' people.
Every effort h is been maile to conceal
the truth regarding the alarming char
acter and size of the exodus to tbe
United Slates from Canada and lower
Quebec especially. The moat violent
abuse has been heaped upon those who
have dared to point out the danger of
this state of affai.n. Priests have been
telling the government the troth, and a
few newspapers have hinted at it. Tbe
mildest term of reproach for these
honest people is that they are unpatri
otic. The priests have fought hard to
stem the tide of immigration; failing
utterly, they have appealed to the gov
ernment. Their action, while perhaps
not disinterested, has been truly patri
otic. We cannot much longer ignore
the facts they hare presented, nor dis
pute the evidence. We may sneer at
the annexation of Canada, but all the
while the Canadian people by whole
trainloads are, as individuals, annexing
themselves to the United States."

Montreal, April 11. The Canadian
Pacific authorities have received a cable
gram to the effect ihat 250 sailors and
marines, destined for tbe Pacific squad
ron, would sail on the steamer Cartha-
ginian from Liverpool tor Halifax, and
from there will take a Canadian Pacific

Folitica on the Bound.
Tacoxa, Wash., April 12. The repub
lican county convention today instructed
its delegation to tbe state convention to
secure the election of Nelson Bennett as
delegate and J. T. Redman alternate to
the national convention. Bennett favors
free silver, and Blaine is his accredited
first choice. Redman favors Blaine,
Harrison or Alger in the order named.
The movement for Tacoma to have two
delegates to the national convention was
downed, Fierce county securing the
favors on the state ticket, and jierhaps
governor. Senator Allen's friends had
no strenth in the covention.
Helena, Mont.. April 8. A dispatch
from Dillon announced that a battle oo

horsethieves and a company of cattle
men on the Montana side of the Wind
river country. The cattlemen becoming
exasperated by the depredations of
horsethieves began an organized search
for the robbers and found a large body
entrenched in winter quarters. They
attacked and were repulsed, losing eight
killed and many wounded. The robbers
also lost heavillv.
