" The wheat market in all parts of
the world is in a very excited con
dition at present. No doubt now
cxirste but that there will be an en
ormous deficit in Europe, which
muHt be almoBt wholly supplied by
the United States.
It is not probable, however, that
the. full amount of the apparent
nli('rtui?e will be reouired. The en
hanced price will cause the use of
cheaper food subHUtuteH,anl among
the jjooreY cIuhhcs deprivations to
the starvation limit. Again, the
seller will clean out his granaries
of the precious berry, retaining
only what is absolutely necessary
for seed, and thus help to meet the
The wheat growers have exjier
ienccd low and unprofitable prices
for a series of years. This is prob
ably a turning joint in their for
tunes. It will naturally take time
replenish grain stocks to the oint
that a surplus will exist. Until
that period the farmer will secure
adequate returns for his labor.
Portland Teleeram: It will le
an imoortant victory for the peot
nf the state if the commission
rates can be made to stand; not so
much because of the reduction
made as to determine the fact and
establish the principle that tl
iieonle. through their legally con
stituted agents and servants, have
jxjwer to reasonably check and con
trol railroad corjKirationB. Hereto
fore the railroads have been all
powerful in matters of legislation;
. it will be encourneinc and note
worthy to learn that the people
rule. It will show, too, thai tno
commission is not altogether a
worthless body, existing only for
show and salary; but that it can
earn its salary and do a little ser
vice to the public.
Tho Salvation Army is planting
its banner in South Africa and
General Booth is daily exacted to
arrive witli a Bfjuiul of salvation
fighters to muke conquest of tho bo
nighted in that section of the globe.
It is also stated that they will colo
nize in Swaziland and provido for
tlwir iiiiLteriiil in conjunction with
their eternal welfare. All kinds of
movements that aim at good, even
thnuah tliev niuv seem fooliwh to
very many, are often productive of
benign results, and who knows out
tho Salvationists, with their ardor
and eclat, may accomplish great
tilings in Africa?
Tho latest projiosition of tho
treasury looters is to pension clerks
who have completed a certain term
of ollifo. It is not urged that tho
payment of these employes is less
or their work moro arduous than
tho employment of ordinary mor
tals wlio may not Iiojkj for ten
sions, but tho theory upon which
tho looters proceed is probably that
tho average government clerk has
so much time to spare that ho is led
to spend his money, without mak
ing duo provision for old age.
Willamette street is in a shameful
condition. The city council should
tuko the first opjiortunity to scrape
oil' the iH'stiferous stun", that, it was
claimed, would cement the gravel.
Tho slightest ruin works it into the
worst kind of sticky mud, that ad
heres to the wagons, side and cross
walks, pedestrians and any tiling
tlse it comes in contact with. In
places it even lifts the gravel out
when caught by wagon wheels.
Chehulis Nugget: Tho Oregon
ian refers to tho "insane popular
demand for free coinage." Tho idea
tho Oregonian means to convey
seems to lie that tho jieople who
dilVcr with it on tho silver question
are insane. The wixnls are full of
the lunatics, however, und the
lroudsidcs of fact and fancy hurled
at them so frequently by the Ore
gonian seem to havo but Httlo effect
in diminishing their iuiidIhts.
Mr. McKinley says tho farmers
of Ohio do not wunt to "sell a full
bushel of wheat for a short dollar."
Nor do they want to puy a full
ilollur for a short dollar's
worth. Nor to sell a Huml of
wool for short McKinley prices.
Tlrt' are several sides to most
questions, as Mr. McKinley may
realize in November,
Lik-rtfee always como high and
frequently cause bloodshed. An
Astoria woman stubbed a man who
playfully kissed her eleven year old
daughter. In a few years that
mother may lie fishing for just such
suckers, and if ho will only bite
hard enough neither she nor the
daughter will resent a similar theft
from an eligible party.
Mrs. Lease, the sensational ftlli
ance orator, lutely addressed a
meeting of farmers In Kansas. In
closing her swh, and as a final
admonition, it is rcorted, the suld:
"Kaise less wheat and corn and
more hell." Mrs. Lease evidently
believes in a diversification of crops,
but Kansas farmers will have a
ijml time mortgaging the product

The idea that good crops and
prices will help the republican
and injure the democratic party is
untenable. They will help the

J.Ul Ml Hll... " ...... . .q
the farmer's increased wealth comes
more leisure for the study of eco
nnmin nunstions: and when he goes
to buy with cash in his hands he is
more careful to examine careiuny
into prices, and inquire upon what
they are based, than n ne nuys on
credit. It is debt that has kept the
American farmer in ignorant slav
ery to tho protectionists. With
more prosperity and greater free
dom will come new and broader
ideas, more indeendonce, greater
intelligence. Portland Telegram.
Tho Willamette Valley Hop
Growers' Association met at Salem
Saturday and the general condi
tion of the prospective crop was
tnllrnri over. Picking will begin in
two weeks and the growers will pay
00 cents lor a vox oi nine ousneis.
Lice are decreasing, a two-thirds
crop is now talked of. Hops will
be of good quality but not over an
average crop in yield.
Chauncey M. Dejicw, whose brain
is associated with other practical
brains in robbing tho producers,
said lately: "Acres do not govern
tho country, but brains." There
are acres of brains in the hayfieldB
of this nation that will eventually
govern the country. These acres
are rapidly brightening up with
"boss" ideas and they are too many
for tho Wall street garden patch.
The lute census shows that in
many of our cities the foreign born
impulution is greater than tho na
tive born. Detroit, for instance,
has 100,000 foreign born citizens to
75,000 native born. I ho agitation
that grew out of the lute New Or
leans lynching suggested the ques
tion from many lips, "What shall
we do with our foreigners?" while,
if tho influx of foreigners continues
as it has done in tho past, the really
imimrtnnt question will be: What
are tho foreigners going to do with

U)on that article, isn't there danger
that they will implant a desire in
tho minds of the public to try this
ex)erimcnt of reduction Ukii some
other articles? We really fail to
see row there is any possible escape
from this logic. Thus a broad
avenue may be oMued to that fear
ful free trade which beforo has not
been mentioned without a shudder
Dealers in agricultural imple
ments say this has been a busy
season for them, and moro cutting
implements, realtors, heutiers, mow
ers, binders, etc., have been sold
than in any previous year for a
long time. In fact, all who have
had the best kinds of machinery
have sold all they have hhd. Self
binders are still in favor in the
Willamette valley, but headers are
largely used in Eastern Oregon and
