OREGON'S GEEAT WHEAT CROP.
The wheat crop of 1KW promises to be
the greatest ever known in the history of
Oregon. Tbe hirh price realized for this
year's crop with the almost certain pros
pect of good prices for their next crop has
stimulated the farmers to sow an nnnsually
large area to fall wheat and should the pros
pects continue good for high prices every
available acre of land will be
sown to spring wheat. With
this object in vie many larmers are
now laying aside a supply or spring wheat
for seed while it can be hsd and not be caught
like many were last spring with vacant
land and no seed to be hail at any price.
From present indications our farmers will
be safe in sowing sll the wheat they can
but after next year it would be well for Ore
Kin formers to slow up on wheat, as the
present high price will stimulate wheat
growers all over the world just as it has
here and thus be the means of putting
prices down again.
This big wheat crop which Oregon is sure
to have for next year, for failures are not
in this land of plenty, will have a marked
bearing upon may other farm products as
well as in other lines of industry. The area
pf potatoes will be less than usual, which
will give a stiffening to the price of that Im
portant farm product next fall. Hay will
be forced np In price by reason of a shortage,
for there will be no wheat hay cut and the
area to cheat and tame grasses will be re
atricted to the needs of the farmer. There
will also be much pasture land plowed up
and put into wheat so that the livestock in
interests will be affected. The oat and
barley crop will also be shortened so that
the price of feed will be forced np.
Indirectly this big area of wheat will af
fect several other lines of industry. The
demand for horses both for seeding and
.harvesting purposes has already been no
ticed and farmers are putting in harness
every available horse. And so great bas
.been the demand for harness this fall that
the shops in Oregon City, Portland and
other towns have had great difficulty in
aupplying their trade. The implemtentdeal
ers too have felt the impulse of a big wheat
crop and more farm machinery bas been
sold this fall than for several years past.
This immense wheat crop will draw to
Tortland, next fall, the largest grain fleet
ever gathered in the harbor of that city.
The towing business will thus be augu
mented with a consequent prosperity to the
woodmen ot the lower Columbia, by reason
of the increased demand for wood by the
tow boats. The impulse that a big wheat
crop will bring, together with the general
revival which newtaritriaw is bringing to
the country, will make Oregon one of the
most prosperous states in the Union next
81'IRIT OF THKPRKSS.
Having conquered her own country the
Irrepressible American girl Is now invading
the baronial halls of old Europe and her
conquests have been so many and so dai
iling that she, like Alexander, has been led
to push on into new countries and she is
now being heard of in far oil Egypt, as the
following from the Inter-Ocean indicates:
"The great popularity of the American girl
abroad is illustrated by the fact that the
brother of the Khedive of Egypt ts willing
torenounce all claims to the throne of the
Pharaohs if he is allowed to marry a allien
ess of the United States whom he met dur
ing a recent Journey in Europe. All she had
to do was to cast her bright eyes on the
scion of African royalty, and he was atonce
a gone goose. American girls come high,
but the aristocracy or the allele Eastern
hemisphere must have them.
The hen industry appears to be run at a
very irregnlarspeed herein Oregon, giving
our people either a feast or a famine in hen
fruit. Of the importation of Eastern eggs
the Oregon Agriculturist has the following
to sav : "About ? 10,000 have gone bast irom
Portland within the past month to pay for
eggs, it is prooaote inai .,vv m
cover the whole cost of Eastern eggs imported
into Oregon and Washington during the
month of October. It is unfortunate that
we are sending away so much money that
ought to be distributed at home. It is not
becauseof a lack orhetis in this country
that we are importing so many eggs.
There are hens enough, but we have not
learned bow to induce them to lay a sul-
Hcient number of eggs at this season for

lion for the further improvement of ia.
quina harbor. "The Corvallis Times seems
to be quite out of humor because the con
gressional delegation has not taken care of
Yaquina bay. Now a little patience
should be exercised, Mr. Tongue, with all
of Washington countv is interested in that
sea port, but down this way we understand
that no appropriation was made in for
thai harbor, or at the last session of con
gress. Mr. Tongue only took his seat in the
House at the special session at which no
general business was done, and hence can
not be held responsible for the present con
dition ir anything is wrong. He will in
terest himseir in that legislation this win
ter." The Corvallis Gazette calls the Orego
nian down for its unwarranted attacks upon
Mr. Mitchell in the following pointed style:
'The Oregonian, able paper though it is,
deceives itself in state political affair. It
does not deceive others. Its interest in our
home politics is not on account or Its de
votion to the cause of sound money. It has
attacked, without provocation, republicans
ho have always believed In the golden
standard. It is simply personal dislike that
animates the Oregonian antipathy to John
H. Mitchell. Tbe Oregonian claims that it
is not interested in the Oregon federal ap
pointments and also Insists that Senator
Mitchell has dictated the recommendations
of the delegation. It is a fact, however,
that Mr. Harvey Scott has urged the ap
pointment of more candidates than has Mr.
Mitchell. Tbe latter has doubtlesas been
sometimes consulted, as have all prominent
republicans, in regard to Oregon apoint
nients.but it is far from the truth to say thai
its wishes have always prevailed. The
Oregonian says that the nomination of
John H. Hall for district attorney was due
to Senator Mitchell, when the (act is that
Mr. Mitchell endorsed the candidacy of an
other gentleman. However.the Oregonian's
motives and temper are so well understood
that its diatribes are comparatively harm
less. A paper that hobnobs with party
traitors, populist and political anarchists
cannot destroy or radically influence the
republican party of Oregon '
Matrimoky appears to be going out of
fashion in staid old Massachusetts. That
state is said to have more bachelor girls,
to use the modern term, in proportion to
population than any other state in the
Union.and now that state appears to be long
on bachelor men, for in the election held
last week, of the three candidates for gov
ernor two were bachelors and of the four
candidates for mayor of Boston, three of
them were bachelors, the only married
man being John L. 8ullivan, the pugilist.
Sullivan's wedded life has been such that
it is a stretch of imagination to call him a
marriel man for he has lived with his wile
very little. As in both stale and city elec
tion the bachelor candidates were suc
cessful it indicates that livi ig a life of
single blessedness Is not the handicap to a
Massachusetts candidate as it is in the
"West where the vote seeker to be success

After nearly two years of delays brought

IS NOT A CANDIDATE.
Oreoos City, Nov. 8.-fTo thk EnitoR:
In your issue of Nov. 5t., you
state that my name is amongst
those prominently mentioned asa candidate
for the office of the mayor. Permit me to
say that I am neither a candidate, nor shall
I accept a nomination for such. I am In
favor of re-nominating and re-electing Mr.
E. G. Canrield, who is performing his du
ties as mayor in such an able manner that
our citizens can do no better than to re
elect bim as often as he will be willing to
serve. I do not know what those varied
interests are, which you say find it diffi
cult to unite upon a candidate, but let me
say to those who represent them, that In
the course of the year the affairs of our city
have been administered in a business-like
and economical way, thanks to the in
itiative, Mr. Caufield bas given to every
step, made in that direction, and
the end of this year will un
doubtedly show a considerable reduction of
our floating debt.
