WHEAT IS . KING.
A gentleman who h6 been in the
I wheat shipping business for a number of
I years, and whose experience fits him to
give an opinion or offer a suggestion, in
a conversation with a representative of
Tbe Chronicle today said :
'Now that the whirr of the thresher
lis again heard in the land, you ought to
I speak to the farmers about the ad van
Stages to them of clean wheat."
i "What shall we eayr' was the ques
tTOn. . ,
"You may say that from theintroduc
tion of foreign Wheat into this part of
the Inland Empire, considerable wild
oats has made its appearance ; and' as
there are no elevators here to clean the
wheat, - it should be cleaned by the
thresher, whenever possible to do so, or
by the use of fanning mills."
"What is the loss to the farmer from
shipping foul wheat?"
"But very little of the wheat which
(comes to The Dalles finds a market here
It is shipped to Portland, for export' or
jmilllng, and the buyer in either event
takes advantage of the condition of "the
wheat as he finds it. ' Rejected wheat is
1 6 yards
. ;. .10 yards
. . . . .8 yards
I -We have' marked all of these at prices to sell them as
we need the room, for our immense Fall Stock now on the
discounted from. 5 to 10 cents per 60
lbs., which is really more than is neces
sary but there is no way to prevent the
discount. If the wheat comes clean, in
new sacks, well filled and sewed, the
farmer makes money by it. Clean wheat
in second-handed sacks has a judgement
against it; hence clean new sacks, well-
filled, and securely- sewed up, pay the
best in all cases. -.
"What is your opinion with respect to
the average of this years crop?" -
I am satisfied that we never had a
better berry- in this market than , the
present crop shows ; and we rejoice with
the farmers that the average yield will
nearly be realized." Klickitat," Dufur,
Wapinitia, Kingsley, Nansene, and other
localities, tributary to The Dalles, have
as fine crops as I have ever seen in my
life, and The Dalles feels justly happy
that the farmer is . so successful. The
prosperity of the grain farmer is much
more to the ' advantage of The Dalles
than the prosperity of the wool grower,
though I would not discount the latter,
because. thieir trade is large and increas
ing,, but in proportion as the soil is tilled
so in proportion does the country grow."
Another gentleman whose experience
n the wheat- Dusmess enaoies mm to
furnish intelligent-"information,- - was
shown the above notes, and he agreed
fully in the statements, adding that if
we had believed all the discouraging re
ports of two' months ago, from the most
unreliable sources, we should not have,
now, enough wheat for seed. He was
glad to know that, this was one of the
most prosperous years to . the farmer
generally in the history of eastern Ore
Concerning prices he said it was hope
ful for the farmer. There is a large fleet
of vessels en route 'for the surplus;
which, if it could be delivered at Astoria
from The Dalles, Would ' save : the pro
ducer ten cents a bushel..- The pilotage
question he considered a cloak to hide a
steal. Do away with that and the far
mer stood eome show along with the
speculator. Barges can carry every
pound of wheat from the Inland Empire
at what it costs for the storage, loss and
handling in Portland.
Prices are today reported weak on the
Pacific coast. In London English
wheats are in . favor of buyers. There
are prospects of good crops, although
the harvest is generally likely to be late
Foreign wheats are quiet 'but 'steady

The Final -Action of the Justice Court
:: ' ! the Matter
Thk Dallx8. Aug. 2. The afternoon
session of the justice court closed with
a review of the testimony by Judge Ben
nett, for the defense, on a. motion to dis
miss the case. ; The motion to dismiss
was made upon the ground that there
was nothing to show that the defendant
was guilty of any crime ; because it was
not shown that a crime had been com
nutted. He argued that the inflamed
condition of the stomach might have
come from natural causes.. If a corrosive
poison had been used the throat would
a - en 1 a .
nave Deen auectea. a racings of zinc
and other metals could be found in the
stomach of all animals.': - Deceased may
have taken poison through mistake for
magnesia which bears a resemblance to
chloride of zinc. The number of suicides
is much larger than murders. In all her
troubles she may have desired to has
ten her journey to "that land from
whose bourne no travelerjetums." She
had brooded upon her troubles 'till her
mind was affected. .The deceased said to
for 1.00 ;
for 1.00 ,
for 1.00 . '
for 1.00 .
her daughter, Mrs. Bergfeld, "I had to
do it, I could stand it no longer." These
were the last words of Mrs. Rogers.
The motion for dismissal was denied,
and the- court adjourned until 9 a. m.'
August 3d. . - -
Wednesday, Aug. 3. Court convened
at 9 :15 a.m. J. Nitschke-was called
iu behalf of the defense;- - Witness said
that the means he took to preserve the
body could not properly be :caUed em
balming, and that he told Bergfeld that
the body was not embalmed, but it
would keep four or five days. - I advised
them not to have the funeral ou the 4th
of - July. I was not enjoined to keep
anything' secret concerning the use of
embalming fluid. '
Mayor Mays was next called. . He
testified : on the death of Mrs. Rogers the
defendant came to me and asked me, as
mayor, to telegraph to th'e postmaster
at San Francisco to send Will Rogers
addressLI received answer that Will bad
not called ior bis mail - for some time.
The next day I received a telegram from
Will Rogers giving . me his address. I
knew from Bergfeld that he wished to
have Will here, and I asked Will to
come up. r He answered for '"$50, and
wanted the' funeral delayed. I saw the
defendant and wife about the matter,
and they concluded that since the other
members'of the family-were present and
it being doubtful as to the time of Will's
arrival, they would hold the funeral on
the oth of July. The notices of the
funeral were published at this time.
Mr. Stiles was next summoned and
testified. I am a druggist in the employ
of Floyd A Shown. Have not sold any
chloride or sulphate of zinc. Chloride
of zinc is a very uncommon article. The
defendant spent a good deal of time in
the store. Never saw him behind the
prescription desk. Do not keep chloride
of zinc in the store.
J. Boon testified, I hold a mortgage
for $3,000.00 on the Roger's ranch.
Mr.'Clark testified, I am- in the em
ploy of Snipes & Kinnersly. Have not
sold any chloride of zinc since I have
been here. io not know whether or
not the different poisons contain chloride
Mr. Easterbrook' and. Judge Blakeley
of the firm of Blakeley & Hough toa testi
fied that they had never Bold any chlo
ride or sulphate of zinc to Mr. or Mrs.
Bergfeld. .'- '
Otto Bergfeld, brother of the defend'
ant, testified. I was sent in town for i
doctor. ' Nothing was done to conceal
the fact of the death. I was sent to in
form Mrs. Smith of the death - and ask
her to come over. Jily brother told me
to get Jim Smith to go . to . Antelope for
BertRogera: : ' ' -
Mrs. Bergfeld testified. There was no
effort made to conceal the -death of my
mother.'. I knew .that my mother had
not been embalmed. . (Here some bottles
were introduced in court, and Mrs. Berg
feld indentified them as being the "bottles
found in her mothers room. , ' .
The defence here submitted the case,
Justice Scbutz decided that the pris
oner be remanded '., to the cosfodv of
the sheriff without bail. -

Eugene Guard. Considerable inquiry
is being made in regard to the time and

concerned that was fixed at the last meet

The time is left with the president, and
haa not yet been fixed. It is expected,
however to be some time in September,
so thattbe members can take in the ex
position either on their way to or from
the meeting, besides there is a desire to
meet "about the same time that our
Washington brethren . shall ' meet at

company is now building a railroad from
Castle Craig to Klamath falls, a distance
of 100 miles. Work was commenced

have been completed.' It is "expected
that the road will be finished next year.
No one doubts that Dr. Sage's Catarrh
Remedy really cures Catarrh, whether
the disease be recent or of longstanding,
because the makers of it clinch their
faith in it with a $500 "guarantee, which
isn't a mere newspaper guarantee, but
is one that is "on call" in a moment.
That moment is when you prove that
its makers can't cure you. The reason
for- their faith is this : - Dr. , Sage's
remedy has proved itself the right . cure
for ninetv-nine out of one hundred cases
of catarrh in the head, and the World's
Dispensary Medical Association can af
ford to take the risk of you being the
one hundredth." - J" - -
The only question is are yon willing
to make the test, if the makers are will
ing to take the risk? If so, the. rest is
easy. - You pay your druggist ou cents
and the trial begins. . If you're wanting
the $500 you'll get something better .a
