Writer for Chicago Parker
ComnienlH on Valley.
Fhilterliiir Proauerls for Increased
Trade Relation With Orient.
The Chicago Packer, the leading paper
devoted to the fruit induHtr in the
United States, under date of 8ent. 5th,
contains a long article on the Willamette
valley and its opportunities, written by
that paper's representative who was in
the valley recently. Following is part
of the article:
Kastero farmers often ask where Will
amette growers market their products.
They do not realize that Oregon has the
world for market. Portland, of course,
Is the natural outlet, but that city's sup
plies go to Chins, Japan, Australia,
Alaska, England and even to Africa in
' Oregon fruits go in Increased miantitles
to Asia and England on freight rate
basis of 50 to 60 c bhl., distance of
nearly 8.000 miles. There rates do not
eat much into the Oregon farmer's net
prices for their produce. No growers
are in closer touch with sure and steady
markets and profitable prices for the
products of their toil than those of the
China does not produce wheat, but in
recent yea's these Orientals have gotten
a taste of Oregon flour, and the trade is
increasing month alter month. This ac
counts for the fact that often the Oregon
farmer gets from 7 to 9 cents a bushel
more for bis grain in Portland than the
Iowa and Illinois farmer gets for his in
!?tIRY INDUSTRY IMFOBTAKT.
Oregon possesses manv natural ad
vantages over other portions of the
country. One of these is its adaptability
to the dairy business. Many counties are
esecially fortanate in this regard. The
equable climate not only corresponds
ith the requirements ol butter ana
cheese making, but It guarantees the
growth of green feed nearly the year
around, as well as saves much food re
quired to keep up animal beat as com
pared with the climate east of the Rocky
mountains. The healthfulness of the
dairy stock is unequalled by that of any
other state. The tendency is to improve
this lasting industry ; for it is now con
ceded that the Alaska demand for butter,
not counting the cheese, will more tban
double the present output of that state.
The market (or cheese and butter is
firincipally found at home, but Oregon is
ast building op s reputation as a butter
producing state, and her products are
eagerly bought in Paget Sound, Alaska
and In the Philippines, where the de
mand is in excess of the supply.
Tie increase in total output and value
of Oregon's dairy prodocts for the year
1901, was forty per cent, over the amount
of the production and value for the pre
ceding year, and Is shown by the tollow
ing figures: Butter, 8,400,000 pounds,
two-thirds of which was creamery and
one-third dairy, valued at 22l4 cents per
pound for the former and 15 cents for
latter, f 1,680,000. Cheese, 2,000,000
poun'ls, valued at 11 cents per pouud or
$220,000. Total, 11,900,000.
ADJOCRSED TERM CIRCUIT COURT

A number of minor orders were made

MILLIONS OF F ESSIES.
now Uncle Sam Slakes a Profit Off
The profit made by the government in
the coinage of pennies pays the entire
expense of the mints and the cost of mak
ing all the other metallic money issued
by the United States. Last year the total
expense of the mintage system was. $1,
910,390. The seignorage, which is the
difference between the value of the cop
per bullion and the value of the penoies
after they are coined, was $1,919,370,
leaving a balance of $3,880 in favor of
tbe pennies. We do not coin any more
copper cents, however ; nowadays the
pennies are made of bronre, mixture of
copper and tin.
Last year 87,376,722 pennies were is
sued from the mints. That is about the
tbe annual average. Tbe demand is
steady and regular, and keeps pace with
tbe growth of the population, although a
few years ago when 99 cent stores be
came fashionable and tbe proprietors of
tbe department stores got into tbe habit
of marking their goods 39 cents, 49 cents
and 74 cents, instead of the multiples of
five, there was a loud call for pennies
from all over the country. For a time
tbe mints were busy night and day, but
of recent years there has beerfno unusual
demand. The slot machines act as regu
lators. Tbe men wbo ran tbem deposit
the pennies they contain in the banks at
intervals, which keeps a supply on hand.
Very few people ever deposit pennies.
The reduction in the price cf newspa
pers throughout the country some years
ago also caused an increased demand for
permit", but it was not so great as that
from the department stores.
Pennies reach the public through the
sub-treasuries and banks like other coins,
being psssed over the counter on appli
cation, but will be shipped direct from
the mint lo those who apply for large
There are many outstanding: 1,372,
030,221 pennies. Many of these, bow
ever, have doubtless disappeared into
the oblivion which swallows up the pins.
Kince the organization of the government
1,517,320,0M pennies have been coined.
Of these, 130,613,847 have been remelted,
but the government does not remelt them
any more, because it is cheaper to buy
fresh strips of bronze and make them
from new metal. Old, worn and defaced
pennies will be redeemed if they are
brought to the treasury, but tbey are de
stroyed. Many years ago, when things were
cheaper, the mints used to coin balf
cents, but none have been issued since
the civil war. There are 7,805,222 out
standing, but probably most of them are
lost or in tha hands of coin collectors.
Of the large, clumsy copper 2-cent piece
which was formerly issued, 23,717,414
are outstanding. Yon sometimes see
tbem, but not often.
There used l be 3-cent pieces also,
made of silver originally but afterward
of nickel. 'one have been coined since
the civil war, but 20.030,519 are out
standing, although most ot tbem must be
be lost or destroyed.
Last year 31,480,579 5 cent nickels
were coined and issued, making total
of 385,072,052 outstanding, which is about
forty-live fer capita of the population,
although no doubt many of them have
Ill A SOT HEARD FROM.
Ills Disappearance Is Still a Mystery
to Ills Friends.
C. P. Ryan, who so suddenly disap
peared from his home at Marquam last
week, and who is supposed to have met
with foul play, has cot been beard from
and his disappearance is still a mystery,
says the Silvertonian. The wife, it is
said, takes the matter very seriously and
thinks Mr. Ryan has been killed, but
others advance the theory that be nas
left bis family and gone to Texas, bis
It is said that be bas talked of making
the trip for some time. He is said to
have been quite heavily 1 nvol ved in debt,
and the fact that be had drawn $100 from
tne Oregon Oity bank immediately be
fore bis disappearance leaves room for
Hie inference that be took bis departure
for parts unknown to avoid financial em
barrassment. While there still remains
a probability of his having met with foul
play, most of the people in Marquam,
who are familiar with the case, are of the
opinion that he has gone East, leaving a
wife and family in rather poor circum
WASTS THE RESERVES ABOLISHED
Senator Fulton Is Preparing Such a
Bill For Congress.
Senator Fulton talked freely regarding
the course of the interior department in
Oregon land matters and roundly de
nounced the action of the officials. He
is gathering evidence and will be pre
pared to refute tbe charges made by Sec
retary Hitchcock that tbe people of Ore
gon are landgrabbers.
A bill will be introduced by tbe senator
abolishing all forest reserves. Speaking
in regard to the proposed mil ne saia :
"I believe that the government is en
croaching on the rights of tbe states when
it sets aside vast areas Of land in reserves
under one pretext and another, as there
is an implied agreement between the
government and the states that all public
lands shall be open to settlement. About
one-fourth of the state of Oregon is now
in reserves or has been Withdrawn for
that purpose. The reserve policy is be
ing carried to extremes and I propose to
introduce a bill at the coming session
that will abolish tbe reserves entirely
and open up vast tracts of valuable lard
Senator Fnlton will leave for Washing
ton shortly after October 1st, as congress
convenes in extraordinary session No
vember 9th. He will go to Salem this
morning and spend a couple of days at
tbe state fair. Albany Herald.

Either Term Applicable To
Timber Land Localor
Whs I'rorcs Up On Claim Coder the
Kevised Regulations Made By
Meet e tar Hitchcock.
Under the revised regulations govern
ing the making of final proof on timber
land locations, it is practically impossi
ble for the applicant to truthfully provd
up and acquire title to the lands upon
which he has located.
When the applicant at the Oregon City
Land Office has now filled ont the usual
form of blanks and made the customary
affidavits he is taken ia charge by a spe
cial government inspector, Mr. fiobbs,
wbo subjects the applicant to a most se
vere cross-examination. Among other
questions that are propounded, the
claimant is asked i! be expects to sell or
in any way dispose of the Jand upon
wbicb he has located at a price in ad
vance of what it has cost bim to acquire
title thereto. If the applicant answers
affirmatively, the application is summar
"Under such proceedings," said a land
office attorney one day, "the applicant
must wilfully perjure himself or make
the apparent admission that he is a fool."
The form of cross-questioning the ap
plicant by a special government officer.
explained an official of the land office,
I is required under instructions of the
j Department of the Interior. The true
purpose of the severe examination ic this
regard is that the spirit and letter of the
law controlling timoer land locations
may be complied with. Under the con
struction of the statutes, the applicant is
supposed to acquire the lands for his per
sonal nse and benefit and not for pur
poses of speculation. Within the past
few weeks, or since the new order has
been in operation, a great many applica
tions at the local office have been re
jected. A nnmber of tbeee cases have
oeen appealed to the Department of the
Interior and the ruling of the government
officials is anxiously awaited.
While the enforcement of the order of
Secretary Hitchcock in reference to the
making of final proof on timber land lo
cations will have the effect of exacting
compliance with the statutes on the sub
ject, it is intimated that the rejection of
the numerous applications will pave the
way for the gobbling up of the same lands
by large corporations and extensive tim
ber land owners wbo bold script that is
to be exchanged for lands Included in the
recently created forest reserves.
It is well-known fact that the appli
cations that are being rejected daily un
der the new ruling of the department re
present much of the most valuable and
desirable timber lands of the state.
Distress After Eating Cared.
Judge W. T. Holland, of Greensburg,
La., wbo is well and favorably known,
says : "Two years ago I suffered greatly
from Indigestion. After eating, great
distress would invariably result, lasting
for an hour or so and my nigbts ' were
restless. I concluded to try Xodol Dys
pepsia Cure and it cured me entirely.
Now my sleep is refreshing and digestion
perfect." Sold by Geo. A. Harding.
PHISICIiSS MUST MAKE REPORTS
County Clerk Sleight Advised of the
State Board of Health Laws.
This week County Clerk Sleight re
ceived from the officers of tbe state board
of health copies of the laws on this sub
ject that were enacted at the recent ses
sion ot tbe state legislature.
Every practicing physician is required
to report within twenty-four hours to the
connty health officer (Judge Ryan for
Clackamas county) every case of conta
gious disease that appears in bis imme
diate locality. The same law also re
quires that the physicians report to the
health officer all the deaths in his dist
rict and tbe causes thereof during the
next preceding calendar month. A list
must also be reported by tbe physicians
before tbe otb ot each month ol all tbe
births occurring during tbe preceding
Compliance with the provisions of
these laws is compulsory on all doctors
and failure to make the reports as re
quired is punishable by a fine. This will
enable the keeping in this connty of a
complete record of deaths, something
that has been impossible before.
