at 20. Thera will alao ba a wld range,

Gold Export Talk.
NBW TORK, Oct. 1". The dull and slug
gish stock market today Indicated that tha
apeculatlv element waa Uttl Inclined to
take chances on what might occur over
Sundav in th inflammable state of affairs
In Southeastern Europe. There was some
relaxation of the tension on that account,
but thla waa owing partly to the fact that
business for the day was over In London
before It begsn here. New York was thus
deprived of Its most relled-upon barometer
of foreign political developments.
The London market Itself, while in opera
tion, showed a decidedly more tranquil ton
and aoma tendency toward recovery from
the acute weaknese of the day before, Brit
ish consols sharing In this tendency. This
was partly owing to th disposition of tha
bear party to elos up thlr uncovered short
contract In view of th approach of the
periodical atock market settlement "next
week. London' improvement was partly
lost before Its shcrt session ended, and the
undertone of anxiety wa manlfeet there, lu
spile of the more hopeful prospects report
ed for a diplomatic settlement of the trou
ble. The local market was free from the pres
sure of foreign liquidation, which haa over
whelmed It on each aucceaslve day of the
week and the way waa (hue opened to
The prominence of the Harrlman atocka
and of Rock laland in thla movement waa
testimony to the Influence of yesterday' de
velopments pointing to Harrlman Interest in
Rock Island affairs which waa Interred from
the financing of t. Louts A San Francisco
obllgatlona by the principal Harrlman
Another ground for the hesitating and
Irregular stock market was the question of

Although there was a big run of livestock
this week, prlcea hav held well and at the
close th market ws in a satisfactory con
dition and showed much improvement over
the close of the few preceding week, anis
was owing to the better quality of the stock
brought in. Prices yesterday were un
changed from those quoted by the trade on
Friday. Receipts for the day were l-
cattie and 00 hogs. .
Thousande of Oregon sheep and lambs
are now being shipped from Eastern Oregon
to the Idaho and Montana range. Two
dollar per head is the ruling pne for
lamb, according to th Kaatt Oregonlan. and
this in comparison with former years, ex
ceptlng the phenomenal high prices of ,ast
year, is considered remarkably good.
J. B. Long Co. have shipped 4000 head
from Heppnor to Montana, and are ahipping
3 GOO head from Baker City, to th same
rang. In each case the price paid waa (
per head. Danxig & Son shipped 3200 head
from Wallowa City to Soda Springs. Idaho,
the price paid being (2.12 per head. These
sheep were shipped out over the new Wal
lowa extension of the O. R. N. C. B
Lukens shipped 2c.O0 head of yearlings from
Baker City to Cutbank. Mont., but the
price paid for these Is not known. ,
Several buyers are now In or near Pendle
ton and others are coming. All are In
search of Iambs as the range have been
cleared of everything else that Is for sale
at the.preent time. Ordinarily there would
b i:o lambs for sale, aa they would be held
until thty wer a year old. but owing to the
past dry season, th rang is o chort that
growera will have approximately 20.000
lambs to offer. From present Indications
the price of Winter mutton sheep- will be
high. Very few Oregon men are feeding or
planning to feed owing to the scarcity of
both hay and grain feed and from the
Middle "est cornea the newa that owing to
the high price ofi corn., little of that cereal
will be fed to sheep this Winter. It there

SEATTLE, Wash.. Oct. 10. (Special.)
Poultry dealers lost o mucb money this
week on poQltry that buying prices will be
cut to the very limit next week. This they
figure can be done as the holdover supply
Is heavier than It haa been on a Saturday
night In many weeks. Therefore the buy
ing price for hens has been set at 12 to 124
cents and Springs at not to exceed 14 cents
for the coming week. Turkeys are still
scarce with not enough coming in to supply
the present demand, which is good for this
time of the year.
On the Merchants Exchange, oata were the
feature today. As high as 433 was bid for
January oats, but no one'would sell at that
price. Wheat was firm, but not active to
day. Grapes are being carried over fn large
quantities tonight. Qood tomatoes command
as high as 70 cents. Cantaloupes were 25
cents higher today.

which resulted In a strong market the
greater part of the day. The market opened
easv, wllh prlcea HS4c t ic lower, owing
to an advanos in the price of consols and to
a moderate decline in the price of wheat
at Liverpool. Before the nd of the first
half hour the market had recovered on

it "was said, were alarmed by the contin
ued absence of rain In the Winter wheat
section. A trading- progressed, prices made
additional advances'. Decern-bor touched

Cheswick Press. Of this edition de
luxe 20 copies were printed. The library
has number II. The Queen cf England
and 'President Roosevelt were the first
to receive the volumes as gifts.
The books are bound in white vel
lum, with hand-hammered oxidized sil
ver shields in the center of each. The
corners and clasps are also silver of
beautiful design. On these Shields and
corners are tiny initials and mono
grams of some of the artists repre

shaped .'shield, outlined with delicate
silver ribbon scroll and vine, a. fac
simile of Richard Cosway's autograph.

also blue, the whole decoration of this
volume being lighter and daintier in
design. Of the other two, one is dec
orated in the French style of the 17th
century, and the third is copied from a
medieval volume in the Vatican library.
The leave of th volumes are of

Engish school, and in that of Clouet In
the French school, dowr. to Rossettt
and Isabey. It has been the means of

CAPITAL IS MISREPRESENTED,
Expenses Are HeaTy, but District
Fills Functions of State, County
and City Government.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 10. (Special.)
Commissioner Macfarland advocates that
the municipal statistics applying to the
District of Columbia, now carried in the
census bulletin in the statistics of cities,
should be published separately from those
of the cities of the country.
Until this Is done Mr. Macfarland con
tends that the District of Columbia will
continue to be misrepresented by those
who take the per capita figures on the
face of the bulletin as extravagant and
expensive in its administration, when, as
a matter of fact, considering the unique
character and circumstances, its expendi
tures are among the most economical and
reasonable in the world.
Director North of the Census Bureau
has informed Mr. Macfarland that he is
In sympathy with the purpose .of his re
quest, and an endeavor will be made to
comply with it. The matter of making
the change In the compilation will be
taken up in the near future.
In his letter to Director North, Com
missioner Macfarland said:
"In the current bulletin, as in former
bulletins, the statistics appeared accred
ited to the city of Washington, which is
not coterminus with the District of Co
lumbia, and which, indeed, ceased to
exist with the city of Georgetown when
both were swallowed up In the corpora
tion of the District of Columbia.
"As you are aware, the District of Co
lumbia -Is a unique political organization
comprising the functions of state, county
and municipality, with a small popula
tion covering a large territory of such
physical character as to increase the
difficulties and expenses of administer
ing the municipal services. Above all, it
Is the National capital, planned on a mag
nificent scale for that reason, and with
boulevards, parks, trees and construc
tions beyond the ability of any popula
tion of the size of that in the District of
Columbia to provide and maintain with
out confiscatory taxation.
"Because lt Is the National capital and
because the United States owns over 50
per cent of the area of the city of Wash
ington proper, besides Its holdings out
side of that city. Congress, the supreme
authority, in 1878, recognized the long
neglected obligation of the National Gov
ernment to the National capital by pro
viding in the organic act, called by the
Supreme Court the constitution of the
District of Columbia, for equal division
of the expenses between the District tax
payers and the National Treasury.
"Under this arrangement the District
taxpayers have been paying under the
assessment and taxation requirements,
equal to the average elsewhere, their full

Acorns Grow on Oaks.
PORTLAND, Oct. 9. (To the Editor.) In
the City Park I picked up an acorn which 1
send you herewith. A 'Portlander declares
that lt fell from a maple tree. TVI11 you
pleaae enllKhten him and
Acorns never grow on maples. The
nut you send is from an ordinary oak,
not perhaps the exact variety you knew
back East, but a genuine oak. The
opinion that an acorn could fall from
a maple Is too foolish for serious denial.

Good Prices for Produce.
The season Just closed has bepn one
to emphasize the value of Irrigation. Up
land crops have been exceptionally short

with the great demand for forage and
grain for feeding a great number of
horses and mules employed on railroad
work and canal construction, is resulting
In splendid prices for all products of the
farm. As in previous years, the Klamath
Basin Is not yet producing enough of
tho staple crops to meet requirements for
home consumption. '
