Harvesting Is now at full awing In
the Columbia River counties of this
state, and from this district alone,
which Is exclusively Portland territory,
approximately 25 per cent more wheat
will be available than was handled
last year. There was some damage by
Spring frosts and tome loss by shatter
ing at harvest, but the crop as a whole
Is very satisfactory -In its dimensions,

IONE, Aug. H. (Staff correspondence.)
With th6 passing of the Willamette Valley
as a factor in the wheat trade of Port
land and Oregon, the prestige of the me
tropolis has suffered slightly in the past
two years. This shrinkage, or rather lack
of growth In the Industry, has been made
unduly prominent on account of the
marked Increase in wheat production In
Washington. . With diversified farming
cutting down the yield of the Willamette
vauey from 5.000.000 and 6,000.000 bushels
to a scant 2,500,000 bushels, and oracticallv
all of this ground Into flour or fed to tho
hogs, the Increased yield In Oregon east
or the Cascade Mountains has been Insuf
ficient to offset the lora. With the Wil
lamette Valley eliminated from the situ
aUon, Portland's exclusive territory now
lies In the Oregon counties lying along
tne Columbia River In the Grand Ronde
alley and along the Snake River below
Not for a moment should It bo Inferred
that Portland's wheat trade is limited
to these districts, for, as is well known,
Portland draws more wheat out of the
rich Palouse than is taken out bv the
Puget Sound cities. It Is on these river
counties, however, that Portland can figure
to a certainty on securing all the wheat
that is shipped, and this year the outlook
is much more promising than It was a
-year ago. -
Wasco Good Yield.
Wasco County, which Is first on tho iit
is now threshing out a crop . which will
average up about 25 per. cent greater than
mat or isoi. Dame Nature played some
queer pranks with the wheat fields of the

40 bushels to the acre are doing well to

heard of a few fields which ran S3 bushil?i
and 40 bushels to the acre. While Wasco
County will have about 23 per cent more
wneat than she had last year.-her deal
will not handle a proportionate increase
over last year's business. This Is due to
the fact tint Klickitat County, Washing
ton. Just across the river, has n cmn nn.
proximately 25 per cent smaller than that
or last year. The Sorlnrr frosts, whlrh
cut down the yield on the south sHi of
the Columbia River, played irreater havno
In Klickitat County, and there was no
increase In acreage to make a Ktand.nfr

evr Acrcncre in Sherman County.
Umatilla has long enjoyed the distinction
of being the banner wheat county of the
state, but Sherman has aspirations, and
in a fair way to contest the title of the
reservation county before many seasons
roll by. There was quite a material In
crease in the acreage In Sherman this
year, the territory south of Grass Valley

As was the case In Wasco, the frcst leff
occasional trails of pinched heads through
the fields o this county. There are also
numerous complaints of loss through
"shattering," some farmers claiming as
high os eight bushels per acre lost in this
way, although others assert that two
bushels per acre would be nearer correct
on most of the fields where the trouble
is reported. The cause of this unusual
shattering Is explained in many ways, all
of which are plausible, and all probably
ccntributary to a condition which has left
Sherman County's fields well seeded for a
Why Wheat "Shattered."
One theory Is that the belated Spring,
with attendant cold weather, affected the
growth of the mesh or husk of the berry,
so that It is abnormally weak, and unable
to support the plump berries, which filled
out remarkably well, and are loose and
Teady to roll out as soon -as the stalk Is
touched. Others claim that the most of
the daiJage has been do'ne to bearded
wheat with a good stand on the ground.
Thero was more wh:d than usual while the
wheat ripened, and as the beards rubbed
against each other the wheat rattled out.
Whatever the cause, the fact remains that
, there has beeii moro wheat lost through
shattering than ever before, and farmers
have plugged up the cracks In their header
wagon boxes, and drive very gingerly in
order to make the loss as small as possible.
Many Combines Running..
It is with a crop like this that the com
bined harvester proves its superiority over
other methods of saving the wheat, for
no matter how badly the wheat shatters,
it all. finds its way into the sack on the
combine. There are about a dozen of these
machines in Sherman County, and some
of them have records of 60 acres in a
f Ingle day's run, although the average run
o a good machine Is between 30 and 40
acres a day.
These machines arc operated with four
and five men, and tha saving over the old
method of harvesting Is very great. About
the only complaint heard is where a man
attempts to do too much with the ma
chines. Thousand-acre wheat fields are
not uncommon in Sherman' County, and
accordingly a combine Is kept busy for
at lea3t 25 days, taklrig caro of the crop.
Twenty-five days of burning sunshine
hustles a crop along toward the ripening
stage at a lively rate, hence it Is obvious
that, to get the most work out of the com
bine, the first wheat must be cut a trifle
green, while he last of the run is liable
to be over-ripc. Some farmers do not at
tempt to get too much work out of the
machine, but as they arc expensive affairs,
there Is always a tendency to work them
to the limit.
Harvest Hands Scarce.
The periodical scarcity of harvest hands
is again noticeable, and is causing much
anxiety for the farmers who have grain
ripening so rapidly that it is very Import
ant that It should be cut at once. At
every station along the Columbia South
ern numerous farmers line up at the car
steps and eagerly .accost every man who
has the appearance of being In search of
work. The wages are good, and the help
Is so scarce that they are governed largely
by the needs of the farmer. For driving
header wagon from ?2 to $2 50 per day and
board is paid, while for threshing ma
chine hands the wages run up as high, as
?3 at 53 50 per day.
The harvest hands are in perfect touch
with the situation, and some of them
exact the last pcrslble farthing from the
farmers. I listened to a long argument
at Wasco a few days ago between a far
mer and a new arrival, and It was not
until the sUpulated ,J2 50 per day had
been supplemented by a meal, bottle of
whisky and the promise to drive five miles
out of the way, so that the new hired
man could call on a friend, that the son
of toll consented to accompany the far
mer. The situation Is easing a little for
the thresherman, as the headers are com
pleting their work, but there will be a
brisk demand for all kinds of labor for
. - Banner Yield In Morrovr.
- The H'jppntr- brafecb' of tho O. R. & -2?H
Co. will this, year liandle more wheat than
ever before, and, from tho returns now
coming to hand, the crop of Morrow Coun
ty will approximate 1,000,000 bushels, and
may exceed that amount. At lone, which
is the principal wheat-shipping point on
the Heppner branch, between 400.000 and
500,000 bushels of wheat will bo handled,
and. the quality will average higher than
ever before, much of It weighing from CO
to G2 pounds to the bushel. Last year the
entire crop on the Heppner branch was
only about C00.C00 bushels, and the quality
was about the poorest that ever came out
of Morrow County. Very little barley and
only a few patches of oats are to be found
in Morrow County, but in Sherman and
Wasco it is estimated that the output or
barley will be about 2SO.CO0 bushels, with
probably half that quantity of oats.
The greater part of the buying already
reported In the river counties has been
on milling account. On the new lands
very strong whcatls grown, which is ad
mirably adapted for the manufacture of
macaroni and breakfast foods. For these
grades of wheat a slight premium Is paid
over export values. No matter what the
export price of wheat may be, any
premium over that price Is almost certain
to loosen up some of the cereal at any and
all staKes ot the season. For that reason
there has been a fair selling movement
alreai'- with some Indications that
the crop will move fairly free, even should
there be no Improvement over present
prices, which today arc about 50 cents at
most points cn the Heppner branch and
Latest" Transportation Project.
Sherman County farmers are much inter
ested In the proposed railroad from Eiggs
to The Dalles. Agents of the company are
circulating contracts among the farmers
and , warehousemen, asking them to agree
to ship nil of their freight over the new
line for a period of five years. The lead
ing promoters of the new scheme are
Moore Bros., the Moro bankers, who are
also large stockholders in the Columbia
Southern, and own wheat lands by the
township, not only In Sherman County
but In the Horse Heaven country In
Washington. The Moores are quite con
fident of the success of tholr enterprise.
Their plans Include In addition to the rail
road from Biggs to The Dalles, a line of
boats from Biggs to the present head of
navigation on this portlcn of the Colum
bia River. Plans for two of these boats,
one for tho passenger and freight traffic
and one for freight, have already been
submitted to bidders. Tho larger of these
boats is to cost about ?CO,000. and the
ether about 510.000.
The promoters of the latest project for
getting past the obstructions above The
Dalles do not see anything In the failure
of the Paul Mohr scheme to -cause them
uneasiness over the success of their plan.
The principal point of advantage over the
Taul Mohr road lies In the fact that, had
Mohr hauled his freight over the portage
road, he would still be without a railroad
connection, while the new road, if it goes
through, can deliver the wheat at The
Dalles, to either or both rail and steam
It Is npt clear yet what -kind of an agree
ment can be made with the Columbia
Southern, but the promoters are figuring
on handling a large share of the business
which Is now turned over to tho O. R. &
N. at Biggs. The contracts now in clrcu
laUon among the farmers do not promise
an immediate reduction In rates, but as
they Imply as much, and promise an ad
ditional outlet for. one of the greatest
wheat districts of the state, they are being
signed quite readily. E Vr. W.

THE LAW IN GUAM.
Governor Schroeder Refers Some
Knotty Points to Washington.
WASHINGTON, lug. 15. An anom
alous situation obtains In the Island of
Guam In reference to tho administration
of justice, and Commander Schroeder. the
Governor of the island, has been driven
ta appeal to the Navy Department hero
for Instructions as to the -limit of his
powers. Congress has not legislated for
the Island, and the will of the Naval Gov
ernment has been practically supreme.
When Ihe island was turned over to the
Navy Department, and Captain Leary
was appointed Governor, he decided to
continue In operation tho old Spanish
laws, except such a3 should be monlfied
by his directions or that of the Navy De
partment. Under the old system of laws
thus put In force there existed practical
ly but a single court on the island, the
court " of first Instance, which corre
sponds to the lowest Judicial tribunal In
this country, under the Spanish law.
an appeal was allowed from the decisions
of this court to the Court of Cessation
In the Philippines, with provision for a
final appeal, in certain class of cases, to
the Government at Madrid. But with
the advent of American control In the
Philippines, this power of appeal was cut
off. and the decision of the Court of First
Instance practically stands as the de
cision of the Court of Last Resort. Some
time ago a native was convicted In thl3
court of murder and was sentenced- to
be executed. Tho evidence seemed to
leave some question of his-guilt. and tho
Governor was appealed to. Being at a
loss as to what action he could take, he
advised the Secretary of the Navy of the
situation, and asked for instructions

Park uy 1005 Fair Management
io Commemorate Deeds of
Lewis and Clark.
The Lewis and Clark Fair manage
ment has appointed Colonel Henry E.
Dossil to go to Japan at the earliest
practicable time, for the purpose of ar
ranging for an Oregon exhibit at the
Osaka exhibition. In 1003. The purpose
Is to cultivate, amicable relations with
the Japanese. In the expectation that
they will be moved to secure large rep
resentation at the 10-35 fair.
The -fair management has also de
cided to erect a Lewis and Clark monu
ment in Portland City Park.
The Board of Directors of the Lewis and
Clark Fair held a meeting yesterday in
the office of the secretary on Washing
ton street and, discussed several Important
matters that have Intimate connection
with the enterprise. Colonel H. E. Dosch
was directed to make a trip to Japan with
all passible haste for the purpose of ascer
taining what sort of a state exhibition
should be sent to the Osaka Industrial Ex
hibition cext Spring. It was also resolved
to erect a statue In the City Park to
commemorate the trip of Lewis and Clark
and the Fair to be held In their honor.
After several other matters had been care
fully considered the meeting was ad
journed. Before the meeting was called to order
there was some little discussion regarding
the merits of the City. Park as a Fair
site. The members of the board had
several different views on the matter, acd
all had their say, but no definite conclu
sion was drawn. It seemed to be the con
sensus of opinion that a railroad, either
electric or cable, could be constructed into
tho park If necessary.
President Corbett called the meeting to
order at 3:40 P. M. He made a brief ex
position of the business before the board,
namely, of the advisability of sending an
exhibit to the Osaka Exhibition. The
members present seemed to be of the opin
ion that the exhibit should be sent by all
means, for If a good display were to be
rnade, Japan might In turn send something
to the iSCa Fair to be held In this city.
The question was brought up as to wheth
er the board had any right to act In the
matter, ano If It would not be better to
call on the Board of Trade and the Cham
ber of Commerce for funds to defray tho
expenses. The State Legislature could ap
propriate the funds at the next session
and repay the money thus expended. Mr.
Mills suggested that It the National Gov
ernment were to make a display the state
could send what It wanted along with It.
for there was no use of spending $5000
If the same results could be obtained for
Colonel Dosch. as director of the local
enterprise, was called Into the meeting
and asked to make a statement on the
subject. He said that there was no money
left from the Charleston and the Buffalo
fair funds, and, even If there was. It
would not be available for this purpose
without a special act of the Legislature.
By the time the lawmaking body couM
convene It would be too late to act. and
the only remaining thing was to settle the
matter now, if any results were expected.
"I think that S3C00 would be plenty."
continued Mr. Dosch. "I understand that
tho O. R. & N. Co. will transport at: the
material over free of charge on their
steamers, attd that will save a lot of ex
pense. I have several carloads of grains
and other things suitable for a dteplay
which are my own personal property, and
I will send them along with the rest, so
that we can save something In that line
also. We ought to send some one over
there now to see what sort of a display to
send, for there Is no use sending some
thing that will not Interest them."
Mr. MI5I3 thought the Consular reports
should show what was needed to make
the display successful, but Mr. Scott sa'd
a man better be sent right away, for
there was not a great deal of time left.
Mr. Corbett said send the man, and tho
Chamber of Commerce, the Board of
Trade and the Manufacturers Association
could arrange to make the display ac
cording to his report.
Mr. Ladd also spoke In favor of send
ing some one to see what should be dis
played, and Mr. Wheelwright moved that
Mr. Dosch be sent as soon as possible, and
that the expenses be paid from the gen
eral fund on hand. Mr. Mills seconded tho
motion, and It was unanimously carried.
Mr. Ladd then moved that the Governor
be respectfully requested to appoint Mr.
Dosch representative of the state at the
Osaka Exposition. This was also unani
mously passed. It was decided that a
committee be appointed to ascertain what
could be done regarding the funds neces
