JUNE 13, 1893
The following ia the statistical report
of the Illinois State Board of Agricul
ture for May 1st, 1893, which would
seem to indicate a poor showing to those
who are accustomed to the bountiful
crops and condition of stock in Oregon :
Winter wheat, condition 70 per cent ;
less than usual put in. Oats, condition
90 per cent; 5 per cent more planted
than last vear. Old corn in hands of
producers 43,599,187 bushels, 32 per cent
ot crop ; average in hands of producers
at this time for past fourteen years, 57,
208,095, last year, 65,969,599. Meadows
not doing very well ; average 91 per
cent. Pastures, decrease in area and
same condition as meadows. An insect
in Knox county has killed several acres
in spots. Horses, 97 per cent of an
average, condition good. In Bureau
county horses and colts have mange or
itch, and many mares dropped their
colts; distemper reported in Knox, Ed
wards, Jasper, Johnson, Calhoun,
Grundy and Pulaski. Cattle, deficiency
of 10 per cent, condition 94 per cent.
Hogs, only 72 per cent reported. Many
ycung pigs lost in Carroll, Douglas, Ful
ton and Coles counties and condition 3
per cent below average. Sheep, 99 per
cent and condition 100 per cent. Bees
did not winter well and season poor for
them. Apples, poor crop expected for
third successive year. Average wages
paid farm help in northern division per
month without board, $27.70; Central,
$24.80; southern, $20.75. With board
$19.80, $17.95 and $14.60.
The action of those democrats who cot
up a convention and nominated a
straight party ticket has not met with
that degree of favor with their party
that they had hoped for. There are
those among them who are out-spoken
in designating the action as surperfluous
in the extreme. Farty lines have not
been drawn in our city administration
for many years, and there is no occasion
to do so now. What the people want is
a wise, conservative, practical course of
conduct without reference to the great
questions of national difference, and
such an administration have we had in
the past, and expect for the future. As
statea in tne beginning there are many
democrats who do not propose to be
held to their political complexion or to an
accounting for their vote for whom they
please. It is therefore confidently pre
dicted that the whole ticket will be
snowed under, and thus teach the
wholesome lesson that the chicanery and
intrigue of machine politics is distaste
ful to the majority of citizens, who want
the best man, no matter what his party
The Astorian aska : When will Port
land learn wisdom ? Her merchants and
manufacturers find now that the sweep
ing redaction in freight rates made by
the Great Northern imperils her jobbing
trade and local industries. The eastern
rates to Spokane are lower than those
from Portland to that city. It follows
that Portland will be forced to seek for
trade within narrower limits. The Cal
ifornia drummer is almost at her gates
and the Spokane traders will soon invade
her territory. Long ago Portland should
have prepared for this welfare by pro
moting the development of Oregon in
many ways. The construction of a rail
road to Astoria by way of the Nehalem
valley should have been one of the first
things that Portland undertook to hold
her grip on the commerce of Oregon and
