E. H. Hutchinson of Spokane' is at the

the Palouse, Big Bend and
Laewtston countries of the Inland em

section to the' north of the Columbia
and Snake rivers 4 going to be far and
away the biggest .in the hlstdry of the
country. ., -
"For many years I have closely
studied the crops and the development
of that country and I never saw any
thing to equal the condition of the pres
ent year," aald Mr.- Hutchinson. 'The
yields are simply enormous. Wheat Is

"With the enormous wealth brought

"These conditions have resulted in an

beavy. Trains on each road are. to be
run twice a week.
At present merchants through Wash

prosperity for the time of the year and
for a presidential year. Their sales are
good and tha people are buying In ad

houra yesterday, the guest of his friend,
B. F. 8tevens, of the First National
bank, while en route to Alaska '
Mr. Roberts expressed the belief that
there will be no r more . sliver dollar
coined for many, years, if mora are ever
coined, because the 156,000,000 ounoea of

used up and the gold production of the
country ha Increased to such a remark
able extent Gold - production In the
world haa trebled in 1 yeara, ho said,
from 1120.000.000 In 1890, to 1130.000.000
last year. For the fiscal year about
$200,000,000 In gold will hav been
coined. ' ' '
Most of the coinage of the past year
ha been in copper cent piece and .In
nickels, the profits to the government on
these two kinds of money having been
hmit SI Ana AAA- A DAiind . of eoooer
costing the government II cent can be
coined into 1 4 f coppers; and a pound of
nickel, costing the government 40 cents,
can be coined Into $4 worth of five-cent
pieces. Pennies are coming Into gen
eral use from ocean to ocean.
The director expressed dpubt about
either a mint or an assay office being
established In Portland -or in any other
city because he believes there ar
enough auch establishment to car for
tha business. . .
Regarding the claim that Oregon has'
not been given credit for all the gold
