rive for Trade. was not the case last aeason when a few
warm days quickly melted me ilttie
snow that fell and hurled the water to
the rlvera long before It was needed for
Irrigation purposes. It ia expected that
this aeason'a hay crop will be double
that of last season, so that Haines,
which la the biggest shipper In tonnage
of any town In Oregon east of Portland,
will maintain ita distinction with a vengeance.
Quite heavy supplies of produce are
epected for tomorrow. A carload of
Florida tomatoes Is due, likewise a car
of pineapples from the same place. A
car of California red onions in sacks
and a carload of wax onions from Texas I
In eratea are both due at the same
time. Another carload of Texas potatoes

While no hogs were received In the

ried over Ita strength from yesterday
and therefore prices are nominally
quoted at the advance. With prices at

ket should reflect some of the outside
The effect of bringing In hogs for
breeding purposes from the middle
west is reflected in the following re
port from the Athena, Or, Press:
"Cholera, which broke out In the fa
mous herd of thoroughbred Poland
China hogs owned by A. Ia Swaggart
80 days ago, has greatly depleted the
herd. 110 dying in that time, leaving
about 60 head, some of which are now
sick, while others have not been afflict
ed with- the disease.
"Milt Swaggart's herd of 60 head has
been swept away except four head,
and Joe Key haa but two or three left
of a small herd.
Effect of Cholera.
"A. L. Swaggart coming home one
day. found a stray pig In hla herd. It
appeared to be sick, and he killed and
burled It. In a day or two the vouna
pigs began dying off and the sows be
came paralyzed and refused to eat and
followed their offspring. Invariably,
the first symptom was paralysis of the
hindquarters, the pig or hog generally
succumbing In from three days to
three weeks. Others have recovered
and still others have not taken it at all.
"Mr. Swaggart has been In communi
cation with the state veterinarian and
from personal examinations made, has
no doubt as to the nature of the dis
ease. Mr. Swaggart who has spent a
lifetime In perfecting the standard of
his herd, estimates his loss at, $6000,
In dollars and cents, but Is keen In his
realization of vhnt the disaster means
at this time to the' hog industry of the
northwest, of which his herd was vir
tually the fountain head."
According to W. H. Paughtrey. presi
dent of the Portland Union Stockyards
company, there is no need of importing
cholera in the hogs brought from the

fiany does not allow hogs to come from

Steen Blows Up in Eighth In
ning and Allows Visitors
Pill Steen pitched great ball until the
eighth Inning this morning, whan ne
weakened and the Oaks put over six
runs on five hits, thereby puling the
game out of danger. Pernoll was
touched up for 12 hits, but the Beaver
were unable to bunch them, -except in
one .nnlng. The score was 9 to 4. The
feature of the game was Pecklnpaugh's
batting, the Portland shortstop getting
four hits In four trips to the plate. In
cluding two doubles.
Portland scored first In the third on
Pecklnpaugh's single, his stolen base,
Murray's single and Steen's out in
In the next Inning the Oaks tied the
score on Pfyl's first double. Coy's sacri
fice grounder and Hoffman's sacrifice.
.Portland moved ahead when two
scores were made In the seventh on
Sheehan's double, Pecklnpaugh's single.
Cojrs bad throw to the plate and Mur
ray a second single.
Oakland moved up another run in
the seventh on Iletllngs walk, his
stolen baaa, and Pearce's single to cen-
Oaks XI Sard.
The big blowup came In the eighth,
when Steen lost his cunning. Pernoll
tarted with a single and scored on
Pfyl's double. Pfyl went to third on
Coy's single and scored on Hoffman's
Ingle. Cutshaw then walked and Kach-
er knocked one to the left field bleach
ers that went for a triple and cleared
he bases, because It got mixed up In
he scantlings out there. Zacher made
the sixth run by stealing home.
Portland made her fourth run In the
eighth on Ryan's single, and Rapp's
double to eenter.
For good measure the Wolverines
made another In the ninth. With one
out Hoffman singled and registered on

Manager C. C Chapman was yester
day appointed state immigration agent
In accordance with the bill recently
passed by the state legislature. The
appointment was made by Governor
West. The bill provided for an appro
priation of $26,000 to defray the ex
penses of 'giving the state official pub
licity, but this feature of the bill was
withdrawn ad the expense attached to
the work will be borne by public sub
scription. The federal government will
stand a part of the expense of getting
out literature In foreign languages.
This Is the feature to which Mr. Chap
man will give particular attention. It
bring belteved that Oregon will be found
attractive to a large number of the good
class of Immigrants from Europe and
many of whom come with enough money
to make a atart.
The work will be taken up at onoe
and pushed with all possible vigor be
cause Oregon is not the only section of
the coutlnent where homeseekers are
