The sweeping results of the fight
against Tammany io Near York City
continue to make the late election the
leading topic io the Eastern metropolis
All returns have confirmed the early in
dica'ions of the utter rout of the Tain
many force, and the aftermath of gossip
discloses something of the seemingly
h peIeM case of that notorious organiza
tion. Fusion was not the only po'itical
element inimit-al to Tammany. It has a
relentless foe in the Greater New York
Democracy, led by John C. 8heehan.
He announces that his party will con
tinue to fight Tammany until it is wiped
0'it of existence, and the regular Democ
racy of New York recognized in State
and national conventions. Ex Senator
Cantor, also an ex-Tammanyite, elected
on the Fusion ticket as president of
Manbattao Borough, predicts the de
struction of even the name of Tammany
through revocation of its charter. Seth
Low and Wi liam T. Jerome, mayor and
district attorney elect, are working in
harmony, and propose to rid the city of
every vestige of Tammany influence as
soon as possible. One of the first to step
down and out arill be Chief of Police
Devery, whose retention by Oroker made
him the storm centre of the fight. His
dismissal is expected to be followed by
an exodus of all sorts of crooks. Sena
tor Piatt, though jubilant, finds a fly in
the ointment io the shape of the victory
of Justice Jerome, a Democrat aod
Fusionist, who vigorously denounced
every intimation of Piatt domination
during the campaign. Bets to the
amount of perhaps one million dollars
were lost by the backers of Tammany
Richard Croker is said to be one of the
heaviest losers, and the big winners are
said to have raked in turns ranging from
thirty thousand to seventy-five thousand

A ll f Leak.
Clackamas Comity last month paid out
$404 25 for aid to paupers and peo
ple applying for help. Much of the aid
it necessary and has to be paid but there
are numerous catee that are more or leas
fakes. The board has many applications
that they hare to refuse, and we believe
the board is doing as well aa it or any
board can do; still the bulk of these ap
plicants should go to a poor farm an
there be kept or no help extended. There
are rases where the board gives temi
orary aid that is along tke correct line
and the applicant ahould not be sent to
poor farm ; but if the bulk ot the appli
cants were told that thev bad to go to a
poor farm, they would not want the help,
Many a man applies for help, and gets
board at some friend's or farmer's place,
who would never go to a poor farm. We
believe a poor farm in this county under
competent supervision would be able to
half pay ita own way if not more. During
the present year the County has expend
ed 450.(H on the pauper account, and
by January next the sum will exceed

COLONEL MILLER, Or CLACKAMAS.
In another column we print an inter
view with Colonel Robert Miller, who
thought he was unjustly quoted in the
Enterprise and Oregonian last week. It
will be observed that Colonel Miller still
, holds that the Democratic party ia not
appreciated in ita efforts to prescribe for
the alleged ills of Uncle Sam.
There are people, nevertheless, who
believe that Uncle Sam is doing fairly,
well and should be let alone. The
Colonel stand? by the Orator of the
Platte in his devotion to silver, notwith
standing the verdict of the last presiden
tial election and the prosperity of the
country. He says that the "money
question is a science that has yet to be
learned." That is undoubtedly true of
many people, Bryan for instance. The
Colonel thinks we shall bear more of
this later on. We did not know that
the Democracy contemplated a post
mortem at this late day, but some
people have peculiar ideas of the time
liness of an autopsy.
But the Colonel is for expansion, that
grand, good, great, generous and plati
tudinous expansion, that benefits the
Kaffiras well as the Chinese, that melts
off into thin air without the remotest
chance of disturbing anyone. When it

In It on Prune Prices.
At a rpecial meeting at Salem Satur
day afternoon, the stockholders of the
Willamette Valley Prune Association
decided without a dissenting voice to
stand by the association price of 5 cents
for 40s in 25-pound boxes. Thi is at
the rate of 4 cents (or the same size in
bags, and, as everybody knows, is far
above present market quotations. The
top price now is 3,' cents, with 3 cents
more frequently offered.
The association has received a letter
from a Chicago commission houie, stal
ing that a ceitain San Francisco dealer is
offering Oregon Italian prunes at 3J
cents, which would mean 3 cents to the
grower. While it is probable sales have
been made at that price, association peo
ple state that 3 cents has not been ac
cepted to any considerable extent around
Salens. As December is a dull month
the association does not expect that the
top market will be reached until after
January 1. Manager Gile announced
that the associatian has sold approxt
mately 1,000,000 pounds of Petite prunes,
and 300,000 pounds of Italian prunes at
5 cents for 40s in boxes, but these sales
were made early. No sales now are be
Rev. F. M. George, a Rosedale grower,
took a carload of prunes to Iowa, and
writes that he sold tuem readily at
cents for 50s in 25-pound boxes. He
says prunes are higher in Iowa than
they were last year, and has ordered an
other carload sent to htm.
' Fair Prices For Sheep.
Farmers in the vicinity of Salem have
been selling some of their surplus sheep
recently and are realizing a good profit,
though onces are some what lower than
tbey were early in the season. Spring
lambs bring about $2 per head and
2-year-olds about $3.25. A number of
sales were made last week at 2 cents
per pound, for both lambs anj sheep.
As there is promise of aa advance in
prices, or at least no further decrease,
locally, farmers are not disposed to sell
any ewes except where they have more
than they can keen.

Oregon Com Crop.
According to recent estimates of the
corn crop of the United 8tates for 1901,
the average yield per acre is 17.4 bushels.
The average yield last year, under favor
able conditions, was 25.6 bushels per
acre. Judge T. L. Davidson, oi Salem,
says his corn crop this year will yield
him 50 bushels per acre of shelled corn.
or 100 bushels of ears.
Hop Crop Worth $1,170,000.
Kola Neis, a 8alem hoo buyer, esti
mates that only 15,000 bales of Oregon
hops remain unsold. T. A. Llveslay,
who is both a grower and a dealer,
makes the same estimate. Mr. Neis
sayt that, though some hops have sold
as low as 8 cents per pound, be believes
the entire Oregon product will average
10 cents per pound to the grower. The
crop will amount to 05,000 bales, or 11,
700,000 pounds. At 10 cents per pound,
the crop will bring $1,170,000.
