LMF0RMS FOR THE OFFICERS
Employe a'. State Prison Will Wear
Salts of Blue.
A movement 1 now on foot at the
Penitentiary, in fact, ia well under way,
to have all of the officers of tbe institu
tion from the first warden down, clothed
in a uniform especially adapted for tbe
prison, says the Salem Statesman. Tbe
negotiations bave been completed and
the material for the uniform selected
and all that remain is for the measure
ments to be taken and the suits ordered.
It ia expected that all of the officers of
tbe prison will appear in their new hab
its by about tbe n) or middle of No
vember. This Innovation ia credited to Gover
nor Chamberlain, who seems to be de-
termined to bring the affairs at the Ore
gon prison up to the level of those of the
similar institutions in all of the other
states, espKrially California and Wash
ington, whpre all of the employes are
said to he required to wear uniform of
an official character. The change it is
argued will be a benefit to the institu
tion in more wsys than one, beside add
ing dignity and uniformity to the ap
pearance ot the officer generally.
The cloth ae'ecled 1 a heavy and dnr
able blue eerge and the entire uniform,
coat, vest and trousers, will be furnished
the employes at from $11 to $12.50.
They will lie supplied with two sets ot.
button, brass (with the Sf-al of the state
of Oregon upon them) and biack rubber
furnished with rings so that ther may be
changed when the officer are off or upon
duty. The suits will be all the same a
to duality of material, style of cut, etc.,
with tl le possible exception of the first
and deputy warden, who will probably
wear some stripes of gold braid upon
their sleeve in order that they may be
distinguished from the other officer.
About six year aito the lame custom
wa adopted at the Insane Asylum, un
der the Ruperintendency of Dr. D. A.
Paine, but it ho now died ont and there
i not an employe at that institution who
wear a regulation uniform except it be
some of the older ones. The rule at the
Asvlum required that one must be em
ployed for at least six months before be
or she would be entitled to don a uni
form, and on this account, for tbe reason
that so many and frequent change were
made in the complement of employee,
the custom gradually died out until it is
not enforced at all any more.
It is also said that an entirely ne set
of rules and regulation will eoon be
issued for the government of the affair
of the Penitentiary, but a yet this has
not been done.
THE NATIVES M ILL ORGANIZE.
Oregonlan of Clackamas County Will
Preliminary step were taken at a meet
ing held in this city Saturday for the or
ganization of a society ol tbe Native Son

CLACKAMAS AS AS APPLE C0CSTRY
An Light Foot Tree Yields Four Bush
els. The "Cahill Seedling."
Jo. Wilson, who resides 6 miles south
east of this city, has an apple tree on his
farm that for prolific bearing is hard to
equal. The tree i seven years old and
stands about eight feet high and this
year yielded four bushel of the finest
quality of apples. Mr. Wilson does not
know the variety of the tree. Tbe fruit
is dark red in color, above the average
size, without a blemish and somewhat
res mbles the Red Astrican. Apple
yielded a large crop in this county this
County Treasurer Cahill has a freak
apple tree on hi farm near this city. It
has yielded a large crop of fruit this sea
son. The tree was produced from a stray
seed deposited beside Mr. Cahill' cabin
gome twenty year ago. In tbe absence
of any definite means of determining the
variety, Mr. Cahill has denominated the
tree the "Cahill Seedling." He thinks
that tbe tree bas grown from tbe seed of
a McCarver Seedling. The fruit is among
the most palatable of the apple family.

PRICE OF WHEAT
Eastern AiItIcps Indicate fl
Local Mill Temporarily Shot Down,
Many farmer are Hold
ing for Advnnce.
A dispatch from Chicago under recent
date, predict a substantial advance) in
the price of wheat and intimates that
this cereal may reach the dollar a bushel
mrk. It aya:
Notwithstanding heavy sales of long
wheat today that grain took another atep
toward tbe dollar mark and retained it.
There was nearly a cent advance for
September and May, and Jgc for Decem
ber. The conviction i growingstronger
that "dollar wheat" is not only a possi
bility in the near future, but a probabil
ity, and some plausible reasons are et
forth for the faith.
One who has made a study of the gov
ernment crop report and of domestic and
foreign demand that will be made on
this country, ay 90c wheat seems cer
tain within a few weeks and he would
not be surprised if speculative and other
conditions should so shape themselves
that even the dollar mark would be
passed by a good margin.
Already the price of September wheat
i well established over 80c, whereas
three months ago it wa quoted at 70c.
Almost every day since August 1 the
pi ice of September has been over 80c.
Today it was wanted at 83,Vc It is
pointed out that the high price of cash
wheat in Minneapolis and tbe small
amount of old wheat left in the North
west are not without significance when
it is remembered that the last two crops
of spring wheat were the largest ever
With a fallingoff of 100,000,000 bushels
in the winter wheat crop and half that
amount in the spring crop there, pre
sents a situation full of promise for a
higher level of pricea.
Vital interest attache to the demand
from Europe and the amount of wheat
this country will be able to spare.
MILLS CLOSI DOWN.
Because of the inability of tbe com
pany to get wheat to this city for milling
purposes, the operation of the local mill
of tbe Portland Flouring Mills Company,
has been temporarily suspended. The
local management finds it impossible to
get cars with which to transport the
grain to this city by tbe railroads while
the stage of tbe river is such that wheat
cannot be brooght to Oregon City by
river steamers from up-river points.
Although tbe local market price ia
from 72 to 75 cents per bushel according
to quality, many farmers are holding for
a better figure or are feeding the product,
to their cattle or having the same ground "
at near-by mill.
Influenced largely by eastern reports,
many Clackamas county farmers are
convinced that Oregon farmers will this
year see the market quotation tor this
cereal reach the $1 mark. ' The yield of
wheat and other grains in this county
ha been above tbe average this year.
Of the yield in this county, more thair
8000 bushels of wheat has been marketed
at the local mills. The mills will resume
running as soon as a supply of wheat
can be secured.
IS MARRtiGE A FAILURE!
Clackamas County Records Show Many
The records of Clackamas county go tov
show that marriage in this section of the
state is not entirely a success. During
the year ending Friday there were issued
in this county 207 marriage licenses and
in the same length of time 124 divorce
suits have been filed in the Clackamas
county circuit court. A majority of these
divorce suits have resulted in tbe sever
ance of tbe marital ties. In justice to
tbe state of domestic felicity in this
county, however, it should be remarked
that of the 1,4 divorce proceedings insti
tuted in Clackamas county during tbe
year, fully fifty per cent of them were
brought here from Portland.
Two more divorce suits, in which tbe
dissatisfied parties are from Multnomah
county, were begun in this county last
Friday, W. T. Hume being the attorney
for the plaintiffs in both cases. Etta L.
Kelly seeks to be divorced from Louis
Kelly to whom she was married at Seat
tle in September, 1902. She charges that
her huaband sought to force her to lead
a life of prostitution and subsequently
deserted her in March 1903. She asks
to be allowed to resume ber maiden
name. Etta L. Fletcher. Martha Crot-
zer charges ber husband, John Crotzer,
with desertion, and wants to be legally
separated from him. They were married
at Freeport, Illinois, in January, 1884.
