GRAIN GROWS AT ONTARIO
A'ATUBAI. MOISTURE IS- SUFFICIENT
IF RIGHTLY USED.
Many Trial Patches Last Year and
Very Ferv Failures Rye Does
Better Taan. Other Grain.
dktaHIO. Or.. Jan. 6. There Is a move
ment on foot among the farmers In this
region to experiment largely In the matter
of raising grain with the natural moisture.
Out of many trial patches this season, the
failures were very few. The yield was
generally good, the threshing showing- 20
to SO bushels per acre. Bye proved to yield
better than wheat or barley, and the fall
sowing of rye was greatly increased. "When
the success of "dry grain" is demonstrated,
the fact will do more to bring this part
of Oregon to the front than any other
thing. Hundreds of iomes will be made
where nothing now grows but sagebrush.
When a farmer can raise 30 acres of rye
-without water, and omy Itave to pump
water for his orchard and potatoes and
etock, be Is pretty well situated, and this
is doubtless what anotner season hero
Just across the Snake, for miles in either
direction, the same experiment is being
tried more or less, and with equal suc-
Many small patches of rye appear

ihR Reason it made good hay in nearly
every instance, and the larger per cent of
the patches made grain. With rye at $1 23
to $1 BO per 100 pounds, as it is always here.
It does not take, many sacks per acre to
pay expenses. When the farmer finds that
It will not ""fill" all he needs to do is to
cut It for hay, and he then gets a good
fall pasture, and it comes again in the
spring, and will have another chance at
snaking grain. He will get two tons of
hay to the acre in the event it must be
cut before filling out, and he will realize
$9 for the two tons. This pays moderately
for the outlay, and when he strikes a
good grain crop, which will be seven years
out of 10, he makes a winning of the first
Nebraska and Kansas do well to turn
oft a crop of grain iour years out oi uvo,
land Oregon will certainly do that. There
.ore large sections of the grain belt in Ore
gon where they do not now irrigate, when
In former years the same farmers had
xio idea it could be done. Slowly this belt
Is enlarging and coming further, in on
desert or semiarld regions, and it is logi
cal to conclude that here, where moisture
tfalls heavily In the winter and spring
.months, and does not slacken off altogether
xintil the first of July, that the economic
grasses and small grain will mature, and
especially is this true of the quick matur
ing rye. In former years no great ef
fort has been made to grow dry grain, as
farmers pretty generally had water, and
did not attempt what had never been
demonstrated, but now, since farms are
being made here and there with a part of
the land above the ditch, necessity has
suggested a crop without water, and thla
ls resulting in the opening of this one
other source of livelihood. If a man nas w
raise water SO or 40 feet with a pump, it
does not pay for general farming, espe
.?oiiir -nrhpn be has to compete with the
farmer who does not have to raise his
-water, but if only Ms orchard and truck
farm has to be covered with the pump, and
h is out no Irrigating work or expense,
no assessments or quarrels on his gram
fields, he does not feel the pumping for
the other crop near the house. Even if
water must be raised 100 feet for the
truck patch, and the rich bench soil la
given half a chance in the way of culti
vation in the fall before the winter's mois
ture begins to fall, it Will be faithful and
pay Its way. A small hot-air pump, or a
windmill, will assist greatly along this
2ftne, antt when a good gasoline engine cam
be -used on the farm, its owner can en
large his watered district and eventually
farm his land to its full capacity.
"WHAT THE GOVERNORS TPROTD.
Gcer on the Conditions In. Oregon
and Rogers lor "Washington.
The New York Times, on January 1,
printed the statements of many govern
ors on the progress of the previous year
-and the prospect for 1903, among them be
ing letters from the governors of Oregon
fland Washington, as follows:
'Tha outlook for business conditions In
Oregon the coming year seems to be good.
"The past year has been fairly satisfac
tory, and, with the exception of wheal and
tops, prices for our staple productions
ihave been remunerative. Oregon produces
more wool than any other state in the
"Union, and the price per pound at present
is above 20 cents higher than It has been
before since the panic of 1S93. Buyers ex
press a willingness now to engage wool
at that figure for next spring.
"The increasing trade which our new
possessions in the Philippines will undoubt
edly stimulate will be a permanent factor
in building up this coast, which, so far
as natural conditions go, is equal, if not
superior, to any other portion of the coun
try. "A frank statement of the requirements
of our state necessitates the remark that
aothlng would tend so rapidly toward the
development of its natural resources as an
influx of that class of immigration that
would come prepared to inaugurate manu
facturing enterprises in various lines. The
field for this kind of Investment is a large
one In Oregon, for, without doubt, cqn
Bldering the great variety of raw material
that abounds here, we import a greater
quantity of manufactured articles than any
other state in the Union, population con
sidered. The attention of Eastern capital
ists has already been drawn very prom
inently during the past year to the pos
sibilities of our etate in this regard, and
it is believed that our growth and pros
perity will, from this time forward, be
steady and permanent. Our principal
drawback is from the sparse--population
Incident to all new countries, and our fu
ture is regarded by our most conservative
people as very satisfactory.
"T. T. GEER, Governor.
"Executive Chamber, Salem, Or."
"I presume that no portion of our com
mon country presents in a business and
industrial way so inviting a field at the
present time as that Immediately adjacent
to Puget sound. Its commercial advant
ages are very great, and its future pros
pects can -only be designated by the word
'magnificent A map of the world upon
a north polar projection will show that a
etralght line extending from Puget sound
to Japan, China and the Philippine islands
eklrts the Alaskan peninsula, being vast
ly shorter than any other route between
the Occident and the Orient. In the long
run, commerce, like everything else, fol
lows the line of least resistance. It Is well
known, too, to navigators, that ocean
currents favor the northern route. Doubt
less it will be a great surprise to many
to be told that the shortest line from Cal
ifornia to the East Indies runs near the
Alaskan coast. The globe, however, re
veals the fact.
Good Bishop Berkeley, something like
175 years ago. In bis well-known line,
Westward the course of empire takes its
-way stated, it is true, a great fact, but
the good bishop did not reveal all the
truth. The course of empire in past his
torical times has also been as markedly
to the north. I think careful Investiga
tion will show I am correct In saying, In
general terms, that no conflict between
the North and South, whether political or
commercial, has ever been waged in whlclr
the North was not successful. The con
quest of England by the Normans was
only an overflow from a previous north
ern Invasion. Civilization began In the
South. At the present" time the northern
nations in Eurdpe Russia, Germany and
England are the arbiters of fate. In our
own country, within recent times, a po
litical struggle between the North and
South was waged. We know the result
Commercially, ft has been and will be the
same. Alexander Humboldt long ago
prophesied that the commerce of the Pa
cific would one day" far exceed that of the
Atlantic He was followed in this predic
tion by" "William EL Sewaxd And James G.
Blaine. Back of these predictions were
geographical and historical facts.
"The recent discoveries as yet only In
their infancy of gold In Alaska, have ac
centuated the natural trend of events.
American commerce will, In the not dis
tant future, execute the evolution of
"about face," and one day how far In
the future I do not know a greater city
than New York will be built upon Puget

PUBLIC LANDS IN CROOK..
Incoming Settlers Would Do Well to
Within 10 miles o'f this city there Is a
large tract of bunchgrass land that win
produce under proper cultivation 20 to
60 bushels of wheat to the acre, "is
jeady for the plow, with plenty of timber
near. On the desert between here and
the Deschutes river is a vast tract of land
suitable for raising all kinds of grain,
vegetables, fruit and alfalfa, requiring
only artificial irrigation. That ditches
will be taken onto this land within a year
or two Is almost an assured fact Already
one ditch of 10,000 inches' .. capacity is
partly built, and will be In operation next
summer, and another company has locat
ed three ditches of 100.000 Inches' capacity
each, one of which at least will prob
ably be started In the spring. On the
west of the Deschutes are thousands of
acres of land peculiarly adapted to red
clover and oats, which Is now under a
system of Irrigation ditches affording an
ample water supply. Homestead and des
ert land entries are being rapidly taken
there, more than 50 navmg Deen meu uur
ing the past year. In fact, throughout
the whole county, may yet be found good
unappropriated farm and grazing land.
The soil is generally good, timber plenti
ful, climate mild and equable, no rainy
season; and the only reason that the
county is yet so sparsely settled Is its
remoteness from lines of travel, which
bring immigrants to the West, and be
cause all over this grand state like condi

are usually supplied before he reaches the
JUDGE MAKES GRAVE CHARGES.
Calls Prosecutor to Investigate Of
ficial Acts-In "Whitman County.
COLFAX Wash., Jan. 6. Superior Judge
McDonald has filed with the county clerk
a formal statement calling upon the pros
ecutor to take proper steps to investi
gate three grave offenses. One charge is
that of rape, which is alleged against J.
E. Nessly, a correspondent of the Spo
kane Spokesman-Review, who wa3 for
merly deputy sheriff and jailer. It is
averred that he put a certain feeble
minded woman in a cell with a man con
demned for murder, and the statute makes
an accessory in such case the same as the
principal. Many confirmatory details are
stated. Since the judge's complaint was
filed, the statements of other men have
been given to substantiate his present
ment Walter Ruble, clerk of the probate court
is charged with having made false af
fidavit regarding- the condition and family
of a woman, on an agreement with her
that he should have 25 per cent of tne
money coming to her through the repre
sentations he should make, and that he
actually received $125 in pursuance of the
agreement and false representation.
The third charge Is against the county
commissioners, alleging that they are an
swerable to the law for having appropri
si public money to aid the county fair.
"Uncle Johnny" Burgen, Pioneer of
GOLDENDATJE, Wash., Jan. 6. John
S. Burgen, better known in his latter
days as "Uncle Johnny" Burgen, who died
at his farm south of Goldendale a few
days ago. Is said to have been the earliest
settler In Klickitat county. Deceased was
born In "Virginia in 1824. He spent his early
manhood In Kentucky, and in 1859 located
In Klickitat county. Before there was a

chartered for lumber loading on'tho Sound

with the option of wheat from Tacoma at
40 shillings. The French bark Noeml, now
In San Francisco, has been chartered to
load at the Bay City for the United King
dom at 37s 6d, with the option of Port
land loading. These figures Indicate that
Portland is securing ships as cheap as any
port on the coast. One or two ships are
reported fixed for next season loaolng
from Portland at about 35 shillings.
Shipping men appear to have consider
able faith In high freights carrying over
into next season, for two salmon ships
to load on the Fraser next fall are re
ported under charter. The vessels are the
Fiery Cross and the Clan McKenzle, both
well known In this port, the latter espe
cially so, on account of being run down In
the Columbia by the steamer Oregon sev
eral years ago. The rate reported for
these two ships Is 36s 3d for September
October loading. Both of the ships have
many thousand miles to sail before they
will get around to this side of the world.
The Clan McKenzio is en route from Cheri
bon to Delaware breakwater, and from
there she will be ordered to New York
to load oil for Japan, after discharging her
present cargo. From Japan she' will' come
across the Pacific In ballast. The Fiery
Cross was loading at London for Sydney
December 23, and will undoubtedly bring a
cargo of coal up from Australia for some
coast port after discharging the cargo
which she Is now loading.
The San Francisco Commercial News has
the following on the freight situation in
the Bay City:
'Fall arrivals of chartered tonnage have
fully supplied local requirements for grain
vessels, and while the few disengaged
ships in port are firmly held at rates
current for aome time, exporters show no
disposition to make further contracts, and
the. market, therefore, is extremely dull.
The fact that lumber has adyanced $ll
per.lOOO, and tonnage is scarce and high,
does not seem to check the foreign delnand
for lumber cargoes as yet. Rates, prompt
loading are firm, and some forward busl-
ness has been done at full rates, June-

" The decline In stocks last week and the
recovery that has since occurred were
obviously not caused by the changes In
the volume of mdney In the street, but
by changed In sentiment and in the posi
tion of speculators In the market. With
financial institutions here and tin Boston
closing their doors there was naturally
created a feeling of uneasiness and dis
trust, and the desire of lenders to keep
their resources in hand created tempor
ary difficulty for borrowers whose col
laterals were not of the best. Hence the
transient, high rates of interest and con
seouent liquidation, stimulated by the
sjiarp attacks of operators for the fall,

who In Buch circumstances are always in
evidence. The sale of securities herc by
London naturally contributed to the de
cline. What has occurred to prqduce the revul
sion? It Is not due to increase of the
money supply, but to recovery from the
'scare' the stoppage of liquidation, freer
extension of credits, and a renewal of buy
ing, first by investors who bought at
panic prices and paid for their goods. '
subsequently by operators who had sold
for a fall, and by speculators on mar
gin, the rise being stimulated by the bull 1
cliques Just as the fall had been ,assisea
by the bears. The history of one week. in
Wall street gives point to the remarks of
Mr. Roberts, thp director of the mint. In
reply to the question whether the recent
stringency signified an actual scarcity of
money. "The cry for more money," he
says," "Is as unappeasable as the demand
for more wealth. You cannot furnish,
money fast enough to meet the demand
of all who would like to borrow while
prices are. going up, nor could nil the gold
and sliver mines In the world together
keep prices going up forever."
The higher prices go, the more eager
the speculative public becomes to buy and
to borrow money for the purpose, as was
sfien In the' hnom nf last snrintr. When
the limit Is" readied and the borrowers are l !
called upon to pay what they owe, there
rises the cry for more money and frenzied
appeals to the treasury to go to the rescue.

GEORGE H. "HIMES,
Assistant Secrotary Oregon Historical So
ciety. New York, May 9, 1S95. My Dear Mr.
HImes: It seems to me highly Important
that as much attention as possible should
be paid to the local history of Oregon be
fore the present generation passes from
tho scene. The fcistory of the Northwest
coast region seems to mo- full of rare and
fascinating interest, and you have still
the rare privilege of being in touch with
the early traditions. I sincerely hope you
will be prospered. In your attempts to cul
tivate the study of Oregon history and
make it popular. ' That visit to Astoria,
May 11, 1S92, was one of the pleasantest
experiences in all my life. If you hap
pen to meet Dr. Eliot, pray give him my
warm regards and best wishes for himself,
and family. Sincerely yours,
