Senator Allen has submitted to the
Indian Committee what he thinks is
about the fair thing for a report on the
Puyallup Indian reservation; but, as
before stated, the committee does not
take the tame view ol the situation as
the Washington delegation, and it liable
to make a dilterent report.
The elaborate bill designed to remedy
the defects in the workings of the inter

ably reported to the House by the Com-

measure lor some weeks past.
After havlnu considered the nuostion
of constitutionality for a long tune the
Ilouse Judiciary Committee lias decided
to report a resolution directing an inves
tigation to be made into the Pinkorton
svstem. The committee came to the
conclusion because ol the alleged use of
Pinkerton men by interstate commerce
carriers and also because it was alleged
their employment resulted in violence to
persons and property.
Senator Squire says he is not sure that
he will be able to secure the passage of
the bill for the gun factory on the l'acidc
Coast, and he is now looking with some
favor upon the proposition Irom the War
Department, which suggests that the
Pacific Coast should, pending legisla
tion on this latter, accept about fifty
mortars, to be situated at important
point! lor the protection of the riven anil
harbor property. Even if the bill should
pass for a government factory, it could
not be built and turn out guns until at
least two years. During that time it is
thonirht bv some of the War Denartmant
official! that it would be well to send
the mortar to the coast.
Secretary Blaine appeared the other
lay before the Senate Committee on
Commerce and made a strong argument
opposing the pending resolution author
izing the landing ol the French cable on
the shores of Virginia and South Caro
lina. His objection was because the
French Cable Company, co-operating
with the Brazilian government, had an
absolute monopoly of the cable privi
leges between the United States and
Brazil, and if the resolutions passed, the
negotiations looking to the procurement
ol a concession to the American Cable
Company would come to naught. The
Secretary appeared to be in excellent
health, and made his argument with
spirit and emphasis.
Mr. Mason, Commissioner of the In
ternal Revenue, said the other day that
the recept decision of the Supreme Court
ol the United States in the case ol George
it. baton is liable to be misunderstood
by persons not familiar with the facts.
That particular case, he explained, arose
under the original oleomargarine act,
which did not prescribe a penalty in
case wholesale dealers failed to report to
the Commissioner ol Internal Revenue
The law, however, was subsequently
amended to cover this omission. It
should bu understood therefore it is no
longer a mere department regulation,
but a provision oi the law.
John Joy Kdson, Chairman of the
Citizens' Committee ol the Twenty
sixth National Encampment of the
Grand Army, to be held at Washington
in September, ha written a letter to
Commander-ln-Chiof Palmer, stating the
committee has asked Congress to appro
priate $100,000 from the funds of the
District ol Columbia to assist in paying
the expense ol the encampment, and
that in consequence ol the erroneous
belief that the appropriation was asked
from the fund of the general govern
ment, members of the Grand Army sent
protests to Congress against the appro
priation. Edson sitys the misapprehen
sion is embarrassing to the committee,
and asks tne appropriation may be re
quested so far as possible.
Economist Holman is determined to
make a very strong fight against the
river and harbor bill when it comes up
in the House. He thinks he will have
strength enough to defeat it. Chairman
Blanchard, however, says he sees no
reason why It should hot pass. The
Senate Committee on Commerce is going
ahead with the consideration of the bill
and the amendments which that com
mittee propose to make to it when the
bill come over. They have gone about
hall way through the bill, but have not
yet touched the Pacillc Coast improve
ments either on rivers or harbors. There
is no doubt Senator Dolph will secure
some amendments (or increases in Ore
gon, and the present action which Sena
tor Squire made (or Washington will se
cure some increases for that State.

Some Very Interesting Matter on
Small Fruit Culture.
HOW TO CROW FRUIT SUCCESSFULLY.
Currants and Gjosi'berrles Should be
Planted in Deep, Rich Soil and
To irrow fruit successfully there are a
few general rules that must be observed.
The;e are :
1. Thorough preparation of the soiling
2. All plants witb the exception of
strawberries (which should be set with
tbe crown of the plant even with the
top of the ground) should be planted a
little deeper than they orginally grew.
3. And most important is that the dirt
should be pressed firmly around the
Anv soil that will raise ordinary farm
crops will raise good fruit if taken care
of, and unless plant are well cared for
one cannot expect to get good result.
The better the condition oi tne sou the
more fruit we will get.
With strawberries we get the best re
sults Irom spring planting and training
in the matted row, having the row
about eighteen Inches in width with an
alley between for the picker and to work
in. The season the plants are set we
pick off all the blossoms, throwing the
ttrength into the new plant an I run
ners. The distance for planting should
he governed by the varieties grown
three and one-half or four feet by one
and one half feet to two feet 1 the (I s
tance we plant. After tiie ground is
frozen cover with bay or straw, remov
ing enough of it in the spring so the
plants can come up rapidly. Plant one
row of perfect blossom varieties to every
two or three pistillate or imperfect
bloom intf sorts.
Raspberries and blackberries require
about the same treatment. Set black
caps about four inches deep. Red rasp
berries and blackberries live or six inches
deep. Seven by three feet is a good dis
tance to plant black raHpberries and
b:acklierries; four by five feet if kept in
ii ills, and six by two feet hedge row for
reds. Give good cultivation and mulch
every spring in the row with coarse ma
nure. When the new cane are alxiut
eighteen inches high pinch off the top.
They wili then throw out sido branches
and largely increase the yield of fruit.
Early in the spring cut back these side
branches on the black raspWrie to
within fourteen to sixteen inches of the
main stalk. A soon a through fruiting
cut out old canes and burn them, leaving
only four or five of the strongest new
cane in a hill for the next season's
For best results with currant and
goo8uberries plant in deep, rich soil lour
or five feet apart each way; keep well
cultivated and give a good coat of well
roited manure each season. Do not allow
the bushes to get too woody. Keep well
thinned out in the center by cutting out
the weakest sprout. For the "currant
worm" use white he'lebore one ounce
to two and one-half to three gallons of
water. Apply with a common sprinkler
or dust bushes with the powder when
the dew is on. The worm will appear
first near the ground, and if taken then,
two or three applications will do the
work. As to selection of varieties take
a reliable firm's catalogue that describes
fiuitasit is, and select such kinds a
you think will lst suit you. We do not
claim that our way ia the only way, but
this plan litis given us good results, and
we believe it will other if followed.
Orchard) Need the Best Land.
If an orchard Is to be planted, it ought
to be given care and manure enough to
insure its success. More failures come
from planting on exhausted soil than
from Buy other single cause. Tbe farmer
knows the land needs more fertility;
hence he applies large amount of stable
manure. This is comparatively poor in
mineral plant food and usually richer
than it ought to be in nitrogen. Hence
the farmer gets a great growth of leaf
and wood, but the tree are slow to come
into bearing. On new land tbe propor
tion between nitrogenous and mineral
plant food was better adapted to make
healthy growth. Hence tree come into
bearing early, and once in bearing their
management was easier than it is under
modem conditions. A few years' growth
of clover on land intended for orchards,
pcsibly one or more clover crops plowed
under, will put tho land in bent condi
tion for successful orcharding. On land
thus fitted no stable manure is needed
until the trees bopin bearing. After the
trees are plant d pea crops may be grown
yearly and fed down by hogs to keep up
fertility, sowing rye in the fall to be
plowed under each spring to give the
peas a start. It has been found that the
pea crop enriches the soil by decompos
ing nitrogen through its roots, the same
as clover does. The nea crou has the
advantage of clover in requiring only
one season to grow it and in not injuring
growth of trees, as a clover sod ia
to while it is boing grown.
