SOPHISTRIES OF SPECULATORS.
Wool speculators are making all the
capital possible over the scare on the
tariff. Why? So they can clean up
thousands of dollars of profit, when the
scare subsides. If they are not here to
buy wool what are they here for? They
are well prepared with sophistries to
to show that wool is going down, derry
down, and will continue to go down, un
til, in competition with Australia they
will sink to nearly nothing. There are
too many wool-growers tn the United
States to allow anything disastrous to
happen, and they will send up such a
howl ns will shake the foundations of
Washington before they are deliberately
impoverished at one fell stroke at the
hands of the administration. While
wool growers are now depressed over the
present low price of the product all
kinds of efforts will be made on the part
of speculators to enhance this de
pression, and the more they can de
press the greater will be their profits.
The Dalles has always been a field
of the keenest competition and, in
truth, there has been up to this time
but little in it for the speculator, and
this scare is but a new method to ex
tract profit. While the market is less
in Boston today for Australian wool
than it is in London, there is little
fear that this wool will crowd us,
even under the conditions of a free
market. But even these conditions can
not be realized until a year after the
new law will go into effect, which can
hardly be formulated within a year.
Meanwhile wool must be bought, man
ufactured and used, and whatever the
future value will be, just now this must
be considered as fictitious. Beware of
selling on a falling market. America
and American manufacturers will not
Buffer the ruination of such an industry,
whatever party is in power.
INCREASE OF SPARROWS.
Considerable attention has been given
to the English sparrow question during
the year by the U. S. department of agri
culture, division of ornithology, and it
is evident that this bird will continue to
be a pest in most sections of the coun
try unless its increase is checked by in
telligent action in the different states.
Several states have legislated against it
ineffectually, their failure being due
largely to ignorance of the true habits of
the bird and a lack of appreciation of
the magnitude and gravity of the evil
Michigan and Ohio have wasted manv
thousands of dollars in bounties nomin
ally for heads of English sparrows, but
actually in large part for for the heads
of harmless and beneficial birds. Illi
nois recently enacted a sparrow law
giving bounties for heads during the
winter months, but this also can result
at best in only a slight diminution of
the number of sparrows 'and at a dispro
portionate expense. The sparrow
sooner or later will force itself on the at
tention of every agricultural state in the
union, and it would be the part of wis
dom for sections not yet badly afflicted
by the scourge to take immediate steps
to secure continued immunity. Bounty
laws are worse than useless ; the best
prospect ot relief appears to be through
the organization in each state of a spar
row board or commission, which shall
employ trained assistants to destroy nests
and young during warm weather and
make use of poison in cold weather, and
in such ways as not to endanger the
lives of our valuable native birds.
Empire State Engine No. 999 lately
placed itself in the category of "flyers"
by developing unheard-of speed, hut its
pace is but a crawl when compared with
the flight of a homing pigeon. Last San
day a committee from the Buffalo Saen
genbund went to Cleveland on the
steamer State of Ohio to complete ar
rangements for its part in the July
Saengerfest to be held in that city, and
upon the arrival of its members there
two carrier pigeons were liberated from
the deck of the steamer. They took a
"bee line" for Buffalo and arrived 70
minutes later, having traversed a dis
tance of 183 miles, or at the rate of
nearly 2)4 miles a minute.
The attorney-general of Kansas has
decided that all building associations do-
ing business in the state must comply
with the state banking law, and place
themselves under the supervision of the
state bank commissioner. This is a
very wise and just decision and should
find expression in our own state.
A FIGHT WITH WILD DUCKS.
Sailors Have a Desperate Rattle with
Birds Blown Oat to Sea.
Capt. William T. Bernard and the
steam tug Plymouth arrived from Bos
ton at Philadelphia a few days ago With
three barges in tow, after one of the
roughest passages ever made and more
than the elements to contend with dur
ing the trip, having been attacked in
the Vineyard sound, during the terrific
hurricane of February 19, by a
tremendous flock of wild ducks
that had been carried from the land by
the wind. They fought desperately
against the side of the tug's house and
powerful electric light on the mast
head, which was the object that fi rst
attracted them. Mate Willard went on
deck and was knocked flat by one of
the infuriated birds, which flew directly
at him, striking him on the breast. To
substantiate this strange story told to a
Press reporter Capt. Bernard saved
twelve of the birds that fell exhausted
from their struggles on the decks and
they are now at his home. The Plym
outh, after passing Chatham just before
sundown on February 19, experienced
heavy rains. Soon the wind veered to
the northwest and blew a hurricane ac
companied by blinding snow squalls.
At nine o'clock at night Capt. Bernard
and Mate Willard were both in the
pilot house, when a fluttering noise was
heard to windward. With the aid of
marine glasses they could discern a
huge dark formation moving directly
toward them, and soon a flock of fully
three hundred ducks made for the ves
sel. They flew directly toward the elec
tric masthead light and in striking the
pole fell by the dozen to the deck. Some
of the sailors were terrified at first by
the fluttering noise, but on being con
vinced what it was went on deck and
caught fully fifty of them and stowed
them away in the fore peak. The birds
were ravenously hungry, having been
carried miles from the land in the teeth
of the heavy gale. They could not fly
back, such was the force of the wind,
and those that failed to light on the
Plymouth were carried off to sea and
no doubt perished. For fully an hour
the birds kept things in a state of ex
citement on board the tug, and Capt.
Bernard confessed it was one of the
most remarkable experiences he had
ever seen or heard of in upward of a
quarter of a century of sea life.
"A dish as much eaten by the Portu
guese as mince pie by Americans, is the
rebanadas. It is of Moorish origin,
and is easily and quickly prepared
as befitted the habits of a nomadic
race. Thick slices of bread are soaked
in new milk, fried in olive oil and then
spread with honey and eaten hot. The
result is something delicious, and those
who have once tasted the rebanadas
will want to taste it again.
