The status of the dairying interest of

J. W. Williams and other capitalists
of Council Bluffs, la., have arranged for
the purchase of the Jacksonville railroad
running between Jacksonville and Med
ford, and that the same will be extended
several miles west iBto the the extensive
timber belt Mr. Williams and others have
purchased and bonded in the past few
months. Tbe scheme of the promoter of
the enterprise embraces the erection of a
large sawmill on tbe property.
The State Land Board collected $51,
630.55 durina tbe month of July on ac
count of tbe several funds in that depart
ment. Thia is the largest sum ever
collected by that department in one
month, with the exception ot August,
181)9, when $107,129 01 was received. On
that occasion the heavy collections were
due to the fact that all 8 per cent loans
on which debtors were delinquent could
be refunded at 6 per cent, where delin
quencies were paid up, and debtors gen
erally took advantage oi me provisions
of the new law.
A better condition of the labor market
has not exhted for a great many years
than that existing throughout this state

other places where a great many men
are employed, the demand is in excess of
the supply. The number of men going
into tbe barvest held so lar is not as
great at in previuos years, and theremay
be some difficulty experienced in obtain

The prone industry is on tbe wane-
While acreage in other fruit lii.es is be
ing rapidly increased, prune planting, if
anything ia on the decrease. Low prices,
partial crop failures and the disorganiza
tion of the California Association are the
main causes. Prune growers in other
districts are turning itieir attention to
other kinds ol fruit raising. In the past
year the coast crop has reached the fig
ure of $82,000,000 pounds, but It will
never be so large again, Anless tbe con
ditions change so that there is more pro
tit in the industry. There seems a good
prospect, however, of fair prices for tbe
Kail crop of prunes. No prices have yet
been fixed, but most dealers and growers
believe ihat five and six cents will form
the basis for this season's crop. That is
a good advance over 2'j cents, the best
price paid for tbe layer sizes last year.
Commissioner Hermann, in his first
decision under the act of the last sessiou
for the relief of Settlers in Eastern Ore
gon, holds that in all cases where entries
have been caucelled in conflict with the
grant to The Dalles Military Wagon
Koad Company, it is necessary for the
entrymen to deed the land back to tbe
toned States in order to obtain repay
ment of the purchase money. Several
emrymen have appealed to the depart
ment to be exempted from turning tbe
and over lo the Government, but in or
der to receive the benefits of tbe law the
transfer is necessary. It ia not discre
tionary with the Land Office to waive
this requirement. Some of tbe lands
turned over to the Government will be
lestored to the public domain ; others
will go oack to tbe wagon road company.
Final die position of the tracts, however,
has not yet been considered.

Salem, Aug. 2. It leaked out ' today
that when the firing of guns in the
prison yard on the recent escape of Con
victs Tracy and Merrill, called two pen
itentiary othVials to llu wall on the
morning ol the outbreak, they found two '
of the wall guards hiding and making no
effort to discover what was going on in
side the yard. To shield the men from
public censure, the whole matter b
been kept an official set-ret, but, like all
good stories, the facts have gradually
leaked out, a little at a tune. Prison ol
ficiala when interviewed about the mat
ter today were very reticent, but would
not deny it.
The outbreak has already resulted in
several reforms at the State Penitentiary,
and other changes in the way of improve-
merit will be made iu the jmme(te fit-
lure. Through tbe changes that hnvu
already been made the prison has been
greatly strengthened ant) it would now '
be extiemely diflicolt for a similar escape
to be made. The most important Im
provement needed cannot be effected,
however, until such time as tbe Legisla
ture shall appropriate money for that
purpose. j ' -
One of the first acts on tbe part of the
prison nranagement after the outbreak
was to arm the wall guards with 30-o0
Winchesters. While there is some ques
tion as to the efficiency of the riot guns
in the hands uf tbe guards at the time of
McCornick, a crack ehol, failed to hit
Merrill, though, he had everything is his
own favor except the weapon. The
guards are quite agreed that their old
guns were unreliable. The weapons
complained of have been discarded and
the best rifles procured to replace thein.
The night guards are being armed wuh
shotguns loaded with buckshot, it being
believed by the prison officials that ac
curate Bhootipg in the dark ia impractic
able witb a rifle firing a tingle bullet.
The general public will doubtless, be
surprised to learn that rifle practice I. ad .
not been required of tbe prison guards
for a long time previous to tbe outbreak.
One or two guards were in ihe habit of
practicing at long intervals, but tney
were the men bo needed the practice
the least. A few years ago there was a
target in the field in front of the prh-on,
and the guards bad regular dates for try- .
irg their skill and becominc familiar.'
with their rifles. But the target ba not
been in position for some time. A few
weeks ago a new target was erected near
the brick yard, south of the penitentiary,
and now the guards shoot at the target
once a week, nnder the dneotion ot
Second Warden W'illey. One or two
guards have become so proficient that
they can place five or six bnllets in W
bullseye in quick succession at 3(0 yards.
It is whispered around that one guard
failed to hit the target at all, thongu the
pile of timbers was about three feet
square. HU term of service is likely not
to be long at tbe prison,
It should be said in connection with
this subject that the abandonment ol
regular target practice a few years g
was doubtless due to-the catting down .
appropriations and the consequent o-.
ceesity for rigid economy in expenditures.
The prison management did not leal able
to supply the ammunition and the' guards
did not think they should purchase it
A number of new men have been
added to tbe prison force. These took
the places of the guards who were knied
at the time of the outbreak, and other
were either put on to increase the force
or to replace others' who hav resigned. .
Two additional guards have been placed
in tne yarns at nignt, anu one auumonai
guard is on the wall in tbe daytime.
Before the outbreak the wall .was left
unguarded during the time., when the
prisoners were locked up. at noon.
Now one guard ia kept on tbe .wall all
the time, so that bo one can approach
the prison from tbe rear without .being
detected. The prison yard- has been
cleared so far as possible of" all boxes,
outbuildings, woodpiles, etc., that could
afford tbe prisoners good hiding places
during attempted escapes.
One of tbe most important of the per
manent improvements now being made
is tbe erection ot a new guardhouse at
the center of the east wall. Material (or
this post was hauled to tbe grounds today
and tbe structure) will be put up at once.
The east wall ia tbe place where the
prisoners wonld oe most likely to attempt
a break. Tbe two guard poets at the)
end of that wall are about 700 feet apart.
Tbe millrace passes under the wall
about tbe center, and scaling tbe wall at
that place is not difficult. In lact, one
of the guards is in the habit, on rettirn-
, . a l! j;.: i -1: l.i
mg irom nsning, exueumons, 01 ciiiiiuiuk
the wall from the outside in order to
secure the easier walking on the plank
walk at the top of the wall. "When the
new guardhouse has been completed a
guard will be stationed there and the
danger of intrusion will be greatly lessened.
Strengthening of the wall itself is the
improvement oeeded most oi all. As
this will entail considerable expense it
cannot be undertaken until authorized
by legislative appropriation. The wall
should be higher and the buttresses
should be removed, so tbat climbing the
wall from tbe outside would not be poa-,
sible without the aid of a ladder. It is
expected tbat the annual report of the
Superintendent of the femtentiary will
contain some definite recommendations
upon this and other kindred mattery
which have been brought to notice by
tbe recent outbreak.
