PROFITS IN PORK.
Pork brings 7ia8c on foot in Chicago.
Here it is only worth 7c. What makes
the difference? Why, indeed, ehould
pork not be worth more here than in
Chicago? The reason is because there
is not enough pork raised in the coun
try. We have barely enough for our
home consumption, when by engaging
in it as a business, and establishing
packing houses, something similar to
what Chicago is doing, if on a much
smaller scale, pork-raising would be one
ci the most lucrative employments that
farmer could engage in. The Armour
company drains all the states within
reach of Chicago, even to Nebraska, and
eTl the same pork back to these people
in cans for double the money they gave
on foot or dressed. By the vastness of
their business they are enabled to buy
cheaply anil make tremendous profits.
TVe are not arguinpr for the Armour
company, but for the Pacific coast.
Giyen an incentive by the farmer in the
shape of a large output of hogs, packing
companies would spring up and pay
.them better prices for the meat. It is
a sign of a tendency in this direction
tbat-farmers generally are now interest
ing themselves and making inquiries in
the bog question, which will result in a
larger output, at least in Wasco county;
-within the next year than ever before.
The trans-Mississippi congress, as
sembled at Ogden, had for its chief topic
yesterday the Nicaragua canal. Good
argument was presented why it would
be as likely to prove a curse as a bless
ing. The narrow isthmus between
Isorth and South America has long been
a vision of possible gigantic commercial
magnitude. Since 1880 when poor old
Dj Lesseps started in on his Panama
project with the avowed intention of
c-ompleting it in 1889. at a cost of one--ifth
of what it would actually be, the
nations of the world have at different
times devoted their attention to the
scheme. It is the most gigantic under
taking ever devised by man for com
mercial gain, and after all is known,
will probably prove that an enterprise
can be of too great magnitude to ever
pay. That is, that by the immense cost
of the undertaking and the time em
ployed in finishing it, countiug interest
on the original investment, and operat
ing expenses, and comparing it with the
probable amount of traffic, it would
The Oregonian published a rounder
recently, to the effect that two men
were discussing the origin of man when
one asserted "all men are animals;"
and thereupon his vis-a-vix called him
an ass. That is exactly where the lat
ter made a highly important mistake ;
all animals are not alike ; and any one
who cannot discuss a grave philosophi
cal question without insulting his op
ponent is a self-evident burro.
With Moses as his advance agent, God
took forty years to get his chosen people
from B-gypt to the happy land of Ca
naan. He could have done it in less
time but he did not want to do so; he
wanted them to be fully prepared to en
joy the land when they got there. And
that accounts why so many are walking
to Chicago, they will be fully prepared
to take a rest when they get there.
To be a good newspaper man on an
eastern metropolitan journal, the main
qualifications is to be able to write on
all sides of all questions at all hours of
the night or day, and both sides of the
paper; when necessary.

Thursday, April 27th, 1893. The
characteristic features of trade remain
near the same as those of a week ago.
In certain branches of trade there is an
improvement. Sheep men have been
more numerous in the city, who have
come in for the purpose of getting sup
plies for the shearing season.
Prices of dry goods remain steady,
while in groceries and provisions, some
lines have experienced an advance.
Sugar has advanced J of a cent during
the past week, making of a cent
within the past three weeks. Beans
have advanced in sympathy with the
advance of the season and the shortness
ot supply. Flour has declined from
$3 75 per bbl. in ton lots to $3.50. Re
tail dealers sell it at $1 per sack or $3.75
Prod nee has been more active and the
market is stiff in most things, others
Eggs are firm on former quotations
with a shaded advance.
Butter is steady on former rates.
Potatoes are dearer and the market is
becoming quite bare of home growth,
and good table potatoes find a ready sale
at $1.75 per 100 lbs. Our provision
dealers are receiving large shipments of
valley which have a good inquiry.
Onions have advanced to 3 to cents
per pound, and are very scarce.
Tho green apple supply is nearly ex
hausted, and former quotations have
The poultry supply still continues
short at last week's quotation.
The meat market is steady, although
a prominent buyer is responsible for
saying that the country east of the
mountains is completely cleared of beef
cattle and buyers are compelled to go to
California and Nevada to get a supply
for western markets. Mutton sheep,
that is to say prices, are in good demand
and prices are firm. Fat hogs are
scarcer and prices remain steady with a
The grain market is firm as far as feed
is concerned. Oats are very scarce and
the demand is good at $1.50 to $1.60 per
cental. Barley is shorter in supply and
is a little dearer than a week ago.
My wife was confined to her oed for
over two months with n very severe at
tack ot rheumatism. We could get
nothing that would afford htr any re
lief, and as a last resort gave Chamber
lain's Pain Balm a trial. To our great
surprise she began to improve after the
first application, and by using it regu
larly she was soon able to get up and
attend to her house work. E. H. John
