PROSPECTUS OF OREGON.
A meeting of citizens is urged for to
morrow night to discuss and act upon
the matter of furnishing funds for the
Prospectus of Oregon. Fifty thousand
copies of this valuable book are to be
printed and circulated in Chicago dur
ing the world's fair. Of all the plans
for advertising our state and securing
immigration this seems to be the most
sensible and feasible. This book is to
be no gaudily-covered affair on cheap
paper, nor even a brochure, but a hand
some, large-sized book of the best enam
elled paper, filled with half-tone illus
trations and choice reading matter the
nearest example of which we can think,
but which is yet better and larger than
the one in mind- being "Astoria" by
Col. Pat Donan. As notwithstanding
the immense edition of this work, it will
cost in the neighborhood of 40 cents each.
it will be seen that it will be a rare
treasure, and will not be subjected to
the careless indifference of the thousands
of publications of like intent that will
undoubtedly be circulated during the
great fair. It will reach the family and
find a place in the library or on the cen
tor table, and throughout the years to
come will do its own work in inducing
settlement and immigration to our state.
Astoria has already subscribed $1,000 to
the enterprise, Eugene $800, Salem $1,200
and now it is The Dalles turn to see
what will be done about it. The
Chronicle does not believe The Dalles
will be unrepresented, when we have
attractions to offer second to none for
immigrants, and as long as our wool, fish
fruit and grain interests are in their
present undeveloped state. Let there
i be a full attendance, notwithstanding
the fact that our board of trade is de-.funct.
A letter has been received from New
Jersey asking us to handle counterfeit
money. The letter encloses a purported
clipping from the New York Times, tell
ing of its remarkable likeness to genuine
xnnnej, and the. great trouble it is al
ready affording the authorities. It is
needless to state that this letter is as in
sincere as the nefarious scheme it sug
gests. It is also one of the oldest of
chestnuts and has been exposed fn
newspapers and books for at least thirty
years. The victims who it attracts go to
New Jersey and give up from $500 to
$5,000, thinking they are to get ten
times that amount in spurious bills, but
they get sawdust or blank paper. They
cannot well complain to the authorities
that they have been swindled, and the
best thing for them to do is to maintain
a discreet silence. Of course they are
served right, after believing they are to
swindle others. It is probable that sev
eral of these letters have been sent to
The Dalles, but it is extremely unlikely
that any one would pay any attention to
them. Yet they must once in a while
catch a sucker, else the business would
be dead .
There will be used in the Spectatorio,
"The World Finder," which is to be
given in "The Chicago Spectatorium,"
three caravels that will be exact repro
ductions of the three vessels of Colum
bus' fleet. These vessels are constructed
from the best historical data obtainable
and will in themselves form an interest
ing historical feature. They will be
manned by able bodied seamen and will
show all the seaman's manipulation of
the three famous boats.

APRIL IN PAST YEAE8.
In 1886 frosts occurred throughout
the state as late as the 18th, the rainfall
was in excess, the ground was very wet Keno's
and the spring was very laje ; warm, dry
weather did not begin until May lotn,
and on the 29th was one of the warmest
days on record.
In 1888, April 1 was warm and dry.
Damaging frosts occurred as late as the
8th. Strawberries were ripe on the 25th
and new potatoes were dug on the 30 th.
May was warm and dry, while June was
In 1889, April was warm and dry,
the season was well advanced. Fruit
trees were in bloom in March. The
winter preceding was' very mild; May
followed with rain up to the21st and nor
In 1890 the spring was cold and
backward, similar to the present year
April was cold, rainy, and vegetation
backward up to the 30th when the rain
ceased and warm, dry sunshine pre
vailed. Frosts on the 11th and 12th
damaged the peach crop slightly. May
followed warm and dry.
In 1891 April was normal. Vegeta
tion was somewhat late, but it was
healthy and prosperous; the season of
1891 was one of the most favorable and
the harvest was the best on record.
In April, 1892, frosts continued up to
the 20th. The season was late; but
earlier than the present for by the 15th
fruit trees were in bloom throughout the
state, except in the counties south of the
Columbia river valley.
Weather : Cloudy weather, rain, low
temperatures and occasional frosts have
been the . marked characteristics of the
past week. The amount of sunshine
was decidedly deficient. The mean
temperature was from 42 to 54 degrees,
which is from 4 to 6 degrees below the
normal. The winds have been south to
west and chilly. The rainfall was heavi
est in the central portion of the Willam
ette valley. Thin ice formed in many
localities on the mornings of the loth

buds, though the continued cool weather
will certainly be of some injury to them.

growth and is becoming very luxuriant
Plowing has been greatly retarded and

Fall sown grain has little upward growth.
but it is rooting and stooling very well
Many farmers are becoming discouraged
with the lateness of the season. The
present season somewhat resembles that
of 1890, in which year spring weather
began on April 20th. The present at
mospheric conditions do not indicate an
immediate clearing of the weather, yet
their formation is such as to lead to the
belief that within the next ten days
more favorable weather will prevail,
Weather: Lack of sunshine, cool
weather and occasional rains with fre
quent frosts have prevailed during the
past week. Snow has occurred on the
higher elevations south of the Columbia
river valley. The mean temperature
has ranged from 38 to 46 degrees which
is about six degrees below the normal.
The amount of rainfall has varied from
.10 to .44 of an inch.

the growth of all vegetation. Fruit buds

there is a unanimous desire for less rain
more warmth and bright sunshine.
From thorough reports the following
information is compiled by the Oregon
weather bureau relative to the number
of cattle, etc., in the state on April 1
Number of cattle, 888,293; horses
299,463 ; sheep, 2,456,077 ; hogs, 204,609
Estimated value of cattle $14,811,291
of horses, $13,715,842; of sheep, $5,903,
182 ; of hogs, $912,760, making a total
value of the above named varieties of
live stock in Oregon of $35,343,075. In
making the above estimate horses have
been averaged at $45.86 apiece. Cattle
at $io.t apiece, sneep at f2.4U apiece
and hogs at $4.46 apiece.

Friendship ceases in a horse trade, as
was evidenced nere last ween, squire
Davenport purchased a span of horses
from a particular friend of his living at
Prineville. The squire hadn't seen the
horses; he didn't want to see 'em.
He had confidence in his friend and
knew he would get a good team, so he
left orders at one of The Dalles stables
to have the animals duly received. The
horses came down as leaders on the
Prineville stage last week, and the stage
had hardly stopped when one of the
horses dropped, never to go again. The
other animal was brought home, and is
certainly a beauty-ful object of charity';
hide-bound, hoof -bound, ring-boned and
spavined. Add to this the fact that it
utterly refused to work, in the harness
or out of it, and you have a good idea of
the Squire's brag team, and a fair illus
tration of the perfidious horsetrader.

Insurance Against Bllce Thieves.
The latest thing in the insurance line
is a scheme for the insurance of cycles
against robbery, which has been
brought out by G. McKay Morat, of
London. This enterprising broker is
willing to indemnify the owner of a
machine of a value not exceeding one
hundred dollars for a single premium
of about eiehtv cents, or above one
hundred dollars and not exceeding two
hundred and fifty dollars for a premium
of one dollar and twenty-five cents.
The only particulars required are the
name of the makers, the description of
the cycle and the number of the ma
chine. The conditions of insurance
are very simple, the chief stipulation
being that the insurer shall exercise
r. the safety , of the
first Rational Bank.
