EUGENE, Or.. Aug. 80. (Special.)
None but strictly first-class prunes will
be accepted at the cannery of the Eu
gene Fruit Growers' Association, ac
cording to a. statement mads today by
Manager J. O. Holt. The Eugene can

movement to make Oregon prunes the
highest standard of the market. Prunes
with mold, dirt or cracked will be re
jected and only the perfect fruit ad
mitted to the driers.
Drying will begin In about 10 days
at the Eugene cannery and it Is esti
mated that there will be between 850,
000 a"E3" 8100,000 worth of the fruit
taken care of. This will mean the
shipment of nearly 20 carloads of dried
prunes, the greater part of which has
already been ordered.
Canning of beans soon will end and
"Evergreen" blackberries will be fin
ished in 10 days. Some pears are
coming In, but regular canning will
not begin for several days.
last year the organization of the party
baa made hardly any progress and that
the Increase in membership has never
before been so insignificant. The re
port speaks of the state of affairs as
almost bordering on stagnation. The
Increase In membership amounts only
to 12,748, of whom over 10.000 are
women. In 15 districts a diminution
of membership is reported.
More significant still is the decrease
in the number of subscribers to the
party press. Even the Vorwaerta cir
culation is 8000 leas than last year.

exceedingly at the apparent check to

them, drove off their horses and part
of their cattle. In the raid the Indians

for nearly 81.000,000.
NO FISHERMEN DROWNED
Season at Columbia's Month Ends
ASTORIA, Or., Aug. 28. (Special.)
The past fishing season on the Colum
bia was a peculiar one, in that not a
man was drowned at the mouth of the
river. This is in a great measure due
to the vigilance of Captain Oscar Wlck
lund and Captain Rimer of the Point
Adams and Cape Disappointment life
saving crews, respectively, and the men
under their command.
This is the first fishing season since
the life-saving crews were stationed
at the mouth of the river that such a
clear record has been established. Cap
tain Wicklund and his crew made 37
trips across the bar this season, while
the Cape Disappointment crew made a
similar number to rescue boats that
were in trouble.
There were times when fishermen were
found In perilous positions, some cap
sized and others helpless, but in each
instance assistance was at hand and n
lives were lost.

EEtlSH SEEKING EXGMSH EM
FliOYMEXT ARE FEWER.
Number of Persons Engaged
Farm Work 1,073,238 and Av
age Weekly Wage $8.
LONDON, Aug. 18. (Special.) A re
port on the numbers and earnings of
Irish migratory agricultural laborers,
the wagea .of agricultural laborers, and
the number of persons engaged In farm
work, and other, matters concerning
Irish agriculture, has been prepared by
the Department of Agriculture and
Technical Instruction for Ireland. The
report says that there has been a con
siderable decrease in the number of
Irish migratory agricultural laborers
who have visited Great Britain in re
cent years. The number of laborers
who migrated In 1913 probably did not
exceed 16,000. In previous years the
figures were estimated to number
15.61)0 In 1011, 18. BOO In 110, 30.000 In
1909. 12.500 In 1908, and 24,000 in 1907.
The principal source from which the
migratory laborer comes is County
Mayo. There are considerable num
bers also from Oalway, Roscommon and
Ellgo. Of the 9217 migratory laborers
about whom Information was obtained
at their homes In 1913, 7260 did not
hold any land, 123 had holdings not
exceeding five acres, and Hi had
holdings of over live. acre. Of the
7250 landless laborers, 902 were sons
or daughters of farmers. It Is esti
mated that tbe savings of Irish migra
tory laborers in 1912 approximated
a50,000. For many years there has
been a marked scarcity of agricultural
labor in Ireland, and thla has been
accompanied by a loss in efficiency
The best labor has left the country.
The number of persons engaged In
farm work In Ireland on June 1. 1912,
was 1,073,238, of whom 789,ss were
members of farmers' families. 1(0,819
other permanent laborers, and 122,761
temporarily employed. Taking the
country as a whole, the evidence goes
to show that the average wage of the
agricultural laborer In Ireland Is the
equivalent of about a. week.

JIAXT HOSIESKEKERS ARE DE
FRAUDED, SATS OFFICIAL.
Fees Paid for "Ivocation" on Claims
on Which Dozens of Other Men
May Be Filed.
EUGENE, Or, Aug. 28. (Special.)
Fraudulent homestead locators are at
work In tbe Sluslaw forest, according to
Assistant Supervisor ' Flttom. These
professional locators, one of whom, ac
cording to Mr. Flttom, has an agent In
Portland to send prospective settlers
thla way, take the unwary homeseeker
to a piece of agricultural land that is
subject to entry, and the victim, after
paying a fee of from a to 850, returns
to the forestry office In Eugene only to
find that a dozen or more other persons
have already filed on thla particular
tract of land.
The fraud is possible because tbe offi
cial surveyors are behind in tbe work
of running lines on lands that are being
homesteaded. The "locators" are care
ful to show their customers tracts of
land that are Indeed subject to entry,
but thev neglect to say to how many
other persons they have already shown
the same land. Tbe lact mat tnese -lo
cators" show real vacant land maaes it
difficult for the officials to make a
charge that would stand In court.
'There is notmng we can ao to stop
It," said, the assistant supervisor. "All
we can do is to warn the people against
the professional locator. Prospective
settlers should go to the settlers who
already live there to get their informa
tion. Any of them will be more than
glad to help new settlers find vacant
land. Homeseekers should make sev
eral selections so if their first choice
has already been taken they will be pre
pared to file application for another."
In the few weeks since Chief Fores-'
ter Graves announced that a new pol
icy of encouraging homesteading would
be adopted, 668 applications have been
received at the office of the supervisor
of the Sluslaw forest. -
