THE HOME AUKKET.
W hile congress is quarreling over the
tariff question and discussing the foreign
market and our relations to the producers
of other countries, our people should not
lose sight of the inirtant home market
which consumes the great bulk of our pro
ductions. The following facts may help to
give an idea of the markets which Tree
trade would open up to foreign producers:
We find that our entire crop of oats, the
annual value of w hich averages more than
300,00u,000, finds a home market. We im
port a good many oats from Canada and
export sparingly in our years of greatest
plenty. As a rule, there is none exported.
All our barley and buckwheat, and by far
the greater part of our rye crop, it con
sumed at home, with the addition of liberal
imports of barley from Canada In ordinary
Our immense crop of flaxseed is con
sumed at borne, and the statement is nearly
true for all other seeds, of which large
quantities are grown by our farmers.
Hay, of which large quantities are sold to
domestic consumer?, values towards $70,000,
000 each year. We exort hay only in
those years when it is plentiful w ith us and
unusually scarce in Europe, and then but
small quantities. Its market is the home
Of our fruits raised, only a few of the
largest northern crop, apples, are shipped
abroad. The fruits of the United States
will aggregate an annual value of $150,0n0,
000, and practically all of our a,)ples, cher
ries, peaches, plums, blackberries, strawber
ries, raspberries, currants, cranberries, etc.,
are consumed by the home market. The
south sends te the northern states its early
berries and peaches, with thousands of car
loads of watermelons and musknielom, and
later in the season takes return consign
ments of northern products.
California sends out annually some $15,
000,000 worth of pears, grapes, and wines
made from them, oranges, lemons, plums,
cherries, strawberries, tigs, olives, peaches,
apricots, etc., and we have the great peanut
crop ot the country reaching from Virginia
to Georgia, and hickory nuts, walnuts, etc.
The fruits of the United States of all de
scriptions rise well tow ard an aggregate an
noal value of 1150,000,000, practically all
finding a home market for home consump
Another great value of home-market ma
terial is contributed bv the potato fields of
the United States, and the sweet potatoes,
cabbages, turnips, parsnips, beets, celery,
onions, peas, beans, and other garden
truck, making an aggregate value of $200,-
000,000 in the markets of the country.
I he crop of chickens, turkeys, geese,
ducks, rabbits and wild fowl, with hundreds
of millions of dozens of eggs raised by the
farmer, supplemented by importations from
Canada, are worth an immense yearly sum.
There iB our immense crop f mutton, all
of which is eaten at home, with great quan
tities of veal and flesh of the young pig,
millions of cans of milk, and so much of
our butter and cheese consumed here that
practically prices for the duiry products are
fixed by the borne market, and not by what
foreigners are willing to pay for them.
Fbank Pixley, in the Argonaut of July
10, discusses the strike and the populists'
support it is receiving in the following
plain manner: He says:
There is but one political psrty in the
United States, or in any of the several states,
which has declared its sympathy with and
approval of the acts of the sadly misguided
men who are setting the laws of the land at
-defiance, and that is the populist party. The
republican and democratic parties differ
widely on national and state issues, espe
cially on economic questions which affect
the nation as a whole, but each vies with
the other in Its devotion to law and order
and its loyalty to the Union. The populist
jarty, on the contrary, stands ready to take
up, indorse, and embrace the extremest
doctrines of the strikers, the socialists, and
even the anarchists, the only condition be
ing that such action thall oiler a reasonable
promise of success. The platform of the party
in thia state, with its 39 articles, is broad
enougii to embrace the anarchistic utter
ances of Johann Most and the sophistical
Arguments of Eugene V. Debs. It is so
framed that every one who reads it may
construe it lo suit himself. It im'ani what
ever the rvniler nay it to mean, but,
at the tame time, there runs through it a
train of that noiitlmont wliloli has recently
found expressloti in Illinois in the hurninn
ofrallrvail briilp-s, the tlcMruotioii of car,
and armed and open rvsistanre to the law
fully constituted authorities of the I' tilled
Has. it occurred to the populiMs that their
open and uiulisKiilsol sympathy with rank
and avowed law breakers at the present
moment will hardly commend them lo the

party to make wise laws and provide for
their enforcement? Have they never heard
thai before one la fitted lo command he
must have learned to obey? Can they be
so foolish aa to imagine that their support
of lH'bs and his schemes can win for them
the esteem and support of the law-abiding
and law-loving citiiens of the United Mutes?
If they have one single gleam of political
intelligence, one iota of sagacity, they
should be able to see that at this moment
the people of the United Slates are in no
mood to temporiie with the turbulent
classes, and that even a crowd of lunatics
ot of an insane asylum would not add fuel
to tne flame by pulling into ottice a parly
which is professedly in sympathy with the
allies of arson, bloodshed, murder and
rapine. The people of the United States
have not spoken on this matter yet. We
have had thrill and tiystericul ulululions
from IMs, Sovereign, Knox, Hoberki, and
the rest of the small fry whom events have
pushed to the front, but the voice of the
people bas not been heard. When it shall
be, it will be like the voice of God, and an
archy and misrule will llee allrighted to hide
themselves. We have come nearly to the
point where we must decide between gov.
eminent and no government, and does any
thinking man, any good citizen, any patri
otic American, believe for a moment (hut
the determination of that great and ull-iin-
portant question is to be left lo the popu-1
lists? We might as well have committed
the preservation of the Union in ItHil to
copperheads and northern doughfaces, and
intrusted the pulling down of the rebellion
lo the Knights of the (jolden Circle. These
are times w Inch call fur devotion to law and
order, for regard for rights of person and
property, for patriotism in its deepest and
widest sense, and w ho can tie so childish, so
silly, as to believe that these qualities char
acterise a party which numbers among its
most bright and shining lights a Teller, a
Waite, a Tillman, a Lewelltug, and a l'en
noyer? MO.YEV I.Y HOPS.
J. P. Stewart, of Puyallnp, Washington,
gives his experience in hop raising, as fol
lows: " In 1871 I planted some hops. The re
sult as shown in journal of Octooer, IstjO, of
my experience in the hop business fur nine
teen years, from 1871 to 1&0, is as follows:
Octoher 22, 1890.-Had Ibis year !,M1
pounds of hops on 13 acres of old yard
and 5 of new yard. The new yard yielded
1000 pounds per acre and the old 2i"4
pounds. Sold M0 pounds for 15 cents r

for the crop $!,MI.1J. Average price, 22.8
cents. Total receipts on hops to dute Iruui

raised and sold to date, 307 ,S2U pounds. Av-.
erage price to date, 20 1-7 cents. The aver
age cost of putting hops on the market has
been 9 cents per pound; average amour, t of
money received yearly, $3,2ti2.18; average
net annual profit, $l,W6.y:; average num
ber of acres, 8.00; average profit per annum

per acere, 200.
. Til it Enterprise has several times stated
that the end of populism is anarchy and
has cited proofs and indications point
ing to that conclusion as being just. Here is
another proof that the two go hand in hand.
The so-called " New Populist" convention,
which met at Springfield, Illinois, on Tues
day, the loth, was called for the avowed
purpose of political co-operation witb the
populists of the state. The convention lost
no time, however, In making it perfectly
plain that it was playing the part of the
charming snake and that the only way the
two could get together would be for the ser
pent to swallow the songster. It organized
by admitting to membership and giving
special prominence to Schawb and Neebe,
the anarchists pardoned by Governor Alt
geld. Commenting on this fact the Chicago
Inter Ocean makes the same point that the
EKTfcBPBifix made prior to the June elec
tion when it said that the more sensible
farmers were deserting the populist ranks
because they saw that it was leading to an
archy for which they bad no place in their
make-up. The Inter Ocean says: "No
class of the American people have more
abhorrence of anarchy, both its object and
its method, than tbe farmers. They may
be ever so restive under the small profits of
agriculture and the accumulation of vast
fortunes by middlemen, but they are not at
war upon the institutions of the country,
nor in sympathy with any of the ideas
w hich are distinctly anarchistic. They will
no more allilsate with the enemies of law
and order than water will mix witb oil."
Now that this city has a decent street
along the principal business portion of the
town tbe utmost pains and pride should be
had in maintaining it in neat and presenta
ble appearance. The city council we I.e.
lieve find that the constant and heavy
waohings to which it is subject at times lor
the purpose of sprinkling is injurious and
that they will take measures to stop it. It
is evident that the street should be clcuned
in such a manner as will remove all refuse
without taking oil' the sand and exposing
the brick. Another thing which should be
carefully avoided is the throwing of refuse
paper and sweepings out in the street as
both give it a bad appearance.
The Albany Herald says that "the state
ment going the rounds about there being
an anarchist organization in Albany with
100 members is a canard. There Is no such
organization here that anybody knows of,
and besides there are not 100 eople in this
city of the kind required to make anarch
ists. 8uch bloodthirsty, unprincipled, mur
derous villains as Herr Most will find no
following in Albany." '
It it duily becoming more evident that
strict provisions against anarchy In this
country are necessary since in spite of the
privileges enjoyed in America Iheso foreign
law-haters are constantly resorting to this
country to promulgate and pnioti" their ne
farious teachings. Aiuvricaiisareuot usually
atiarvhlstB and America has no need ot any
representatives of that class. Not one
should he permitted to land on the shores
of this continent, and now that other coun
tries are adopting more rigorous mciliodxln
dealing with them our own government
should le actively on the alert to prevent
their coming here. The bill now before
congress defining anarchy and prov iding for
Ih punishment of Crimea committed or at
tempted by anarchists is up for considera
tion none loo soon, since it Is better to keep
this class of immigrants out than It Is to
permit them to gain entrance, do their
work, and then punish them for It. The
bill delines an anarchist as one who belongs
lo, or is appointed or employed by, any so
ciety or organization existing In this or any
foreign country which provides In writing,
or by verbal agreement or instruction, lor
the unlawful taking of human life, or for
the unlawful destruction of proerty w here
the loss of life Is a probable result of such
I an artli'le In the North American He
view Tom Heed of Maine says: " Thj his
tory of the last yeur must have been a lil
ter disappointment to many good men w ho,
notsatisllcd with a reasonable amount ol
good government, sought to II ml a liiturc
better than the past, by throwlngthemselves
into the bands of a party which was and is
the creation of pure opposition, a party
which had never been for anything In par
Ocular, but simply against everything in
general. How these men could have hoped
for anything but the dismal result which
now darkens the country they are probably
now asking themselves with more of anger
than sorrow, (if course these men, and
with them many partisans of longstanding
are now repenting with exceeding bitterness
of spirit. Tliev are also bringing forth
works meet for repentance. No election,
however trivial, which gives men a charce
to show their feelings has been neglected.
Wherever the elections have been on a scale
great enough, the disgust of the people has
taken on the largest possible proportions,
and the people have not fulled to emphasize
what they meant. In Oregon, where the
pu!ists hoped to render the verdict un
certain, the voters have left no doubt and
given no sign which could be mistaken."
Tin new inti anarchist measures to te
adopted in France provide for trial of this
class ot criminals w ithout the intervention
of a jury. The reason for dispensing with
jury trials Incases of persons charged with
the above offenses. Is that the juries have
always hesitated to convict because the as
sizes judges are empowered to lulllct the
heaviest sentences. Among the otlenses cov
ered by the ministers are incitement through
the press to outrage or crime, speeches ad
vocating theft, in tinier, robbery, incendi
arism, crimes against the state and the de
fense of such crimes. The publication of
reporu or anarchists' trials is furbidden un
der heavy penalties.
