against him, his dynasty or the,Swedish
nation and asking him to co-operate in, the
selection ol a young prince of the house of
IJernndotle (the royal house of Sweden)
to occupy the throne of Norway.
It Is currently reported upon good au
thority that Sweden has indirectly assured
Norway that no forcible measures will be
employed to hold her within the bonds of
the present union.
The resolutions adopted today near the
dethronement of King Oscar and was a
parliamentary step necessary before disso

be accomplished. The Norwegians main

by his absence from Noiway has suspend

HENEY Is "iH PORTLAND
Haa Exhaustive Argument Against
United States District Attorney Francis
J. Heney, armed with the necessary am
munition with which to combat Senator
Mitchell's demurrer to the indictment in
the first of the land fraud cases, left Port
land last Friday night. Since the ad
journment of the district court in Portland
Mr. Heney has been working almost con
stantly on his argument against Mitchell's
demurrer, Bnd it is probably the longest
docume.it of its kind ever filed in an Ore
gon court. It takes up every point in
Mitchell's contention and cites authorities,
with the result, so Heney believes, that he
can present an argument that will convince
the court that Mitchell hasn't a leg to
Reports from Washington to the eflect
that Allourney-General Moody was dis
pleased with the appointment of Judge
DeHaven to tit in this case, in place of
Judge Bellinger, deceased, led to the belief
in some quarters that DeHaven might ask
to be relieved from the assignment. This,
however, is not the case. The attorney-
general was not displeased with the ap
pointment, but a question as to tbe regu
larity of the assignment was raised. It
has been found that Judge Gilbert was
within his rights when he named DeHaven,
and the talk, which at no time was justified,
to the effect that DeHaven might not go
to Portland has ceased.

The banner wool sale of Oregon was
held at Shaniko latfl week. So far about
850,000 pounds have been sold at a very
high figure, Merinos bringing from 21 to
cents and one small lot of Lincoln
cross-bred wool, belonging to C. A. Buck
ley of Grass Valley, brought 26 cents in
grease, which or a scoured basis, landed
in the east, is from 72 to 76 cents.
The famous Baldwin Sheep & Land
Company's clip of 250,000 pounds brought
38 ( cents and was purchased by Charles
Brighatn, representing Whitman, Fran
worth & Co. of Boston.
Wool growers are jubilant at the high
prices. The town is crowded and it is
impossible to secure sleeping accomoda
tions. It is expected that 500,000 pounds will
be offered at the Moody warehouse this
afternoon. The sale will be continued
The most pleasant place to stop in

THE BftER WHlAT CROP
On the basis of the government's rep6rt
on the ncreage and condition, the winter
wheat crop of 1905 will amount to 460,-
This is far larger than any crop gather
ed along to this time. The winter wheat
yield of 1004 was 332,000,000 bushels and
that of 1903 was 399,000,000. The largest
winter wheat crop ever harvested to the
present day was in 1902, which was 411,-
000,000 bushels, or 49,000,000 under that
promised for this year.
From the present outlook the aggregate
wheat yield of 1905 will break nil recoids.
The condition of spring, wheat, despite the
backward weather'throu'ghout much of the;
producing states is fully up to the average
of recent years. The aggregate wneai
harvest of lie past 'few years was 748,000,
000. bushels in toot, 670,000,000 in 1902,
687,000,000 in 1908, and 551,600,000 in
The winter wheat outlook is so much,
better this year tlftn eVe belorc that there
is n chance that 1901' harvest, which was
Hi highest record, will be 'beaten in the:
present ftason. All the Indications,

MOTOR CLIMBS THE HILLS
For the first time since is construction,
the Southern Pacific's new gasoline-motor
car No. 1 recently encountered a grade of j
197 feet to the mile. The test was on the
ftrst official trial trip, made over the rails
of the Oregon Railroad & Navigation com
pany's line, a distance of six miles out on
the main road, and then run of two miles
up the grade of the Forest Grove line,
from the union station to the top of the
hill. The result was satisfactory to Harri
man officials on the car.
A run was made over the Sullivan gulch
grade and the car easily made a speed of
3o mites an hour without using more than
half its power. A trip was then made
ovei the Fourth ,street grade of the South
em Pacific, and the entire population along
the route laid aside work and business and
viewed the progress of the car through the
city. The Fourth street grade ranges
from 116 to 197 feet rise to the mile
practically a 34 per cent grade. The
steepest part is on the few blocks near the
city hall Two or three locomotives are
often required to pull an ordinary train up
This is the most important test the car
has had, 3atd General Manager O'Brien.
If it will do business here it will work on
any ordinary railroad.
The design of the car presents some
new features; it is modeled after the lines
of the racing yacht Relience, inverted.
The rear of the car is rounded to avoid
the formation of the vacuum present with
square-ended cars. The front tapers to a
sharp point. The roof is given a taper
from the middle to produce a splitting ef
fect In the atmosphere and minimize re
sistance, it is entirely smooth except for
the Cottier ventilators, which exhaust by
suction the air from the interior. The
trucks are of original and unique design,
with many new features,' intended to em
body the best points of both the Pullman
and streetcar trucks. The most important
is the spring, so constructed as to avoid
the teetering action ordinarily experienced
in the trolley car. The designers say
there is practically no limit to the speed
the car .will attain, but it is not expected
that it will be operated at more than 40
miles an hour. It is driven by a six
cylindered gasoline engine that develops
125 horsepower when running at full speed,
the engine shaft making 600 revolutions a
minute, turning the wheels at a speed of
400 revolutions. The engine is designed
after the style of those used in the Standard
autoboats that made a wonderful record
in autoboat races on the Hudson river last
June. Large air reservoirs are carried un
der the car, supplying an air device by
which the car is started without jar, and
stopped abruptly in an emprgency by air
Drinks of the Nations.

The United States drank 964,000,000
pounds of colTee in 1904. Nearest to this
quantity, oUt ol ten other nations, came

France used but 168,006.000. Great Brit
