Sixty passengers came down on the
Spokane from Umatilla to Celilo today
and on to this place this afternoon.
The trial of the case of the etate
against McReynolds was completed yes
terday, and the jury brought in a verdict
of acquittal. .
By substituting the word areas for
acres where the latter word first occurs
in an editorial entitled "Malthus Cor
rect" in yesterday's issue, a very sense

Through the kindness of Messrs. Sin
notti Fish the Smith Bros, have se
cured the dining room of the Umatilla
house, for the night of July 4th and will
give one of their old time parties.
All claims against the city should be
filed by 7 :30 th:s evening as the present
city government desires to act upon all
bills and claims, so that the incoming
officers may start with a clean slate.
The case against Maloney and Snell
ing ia on trial today. Court was Hot
called at the usual hour, on account
of the venire not being returned, the
work requiring considerable traveling to
serve the summons.
. Mr. Theodore Prinz fell from an ex
press wagon this morning and dislocated
his shoulder, and Mrs. Kent fell on the
sidewalk breaking her left leg below the
knee. Dr. Hollister was called in both-
' cases to repair the damages. -
The average temperature for June at
this point for the past nineteen years is
67.3. That for this month . is 63.2.
Only three years in that time has it
been so low. " In 1890 and 1891 it was
between 61 and 62, and in 1888 the
same as this year. '. ...
In going to Hood River yesterday we
had an opportunity, to examine a por
tion of the railroad, and are convinced
that the damage is not nearly so great
aa supposed. When once the break be-
. tween Bonneville and the Locks is pass
able, the balance of the road will soon
' be i placed in condition. '. .'.
Deputy Sheriff Phirman got home at
noon having summoned a special panel
of jurors to serve in the case of the state,
against Maloney and Snelling. . 1 The
attorneys will commence on them this

which the case has been brought and

Mr. W. H. Jones, secretary of the
American Railway Union here, received
a dispatch from President Debs this
morning calling ou the entire brother
hood on the Union Pacific. Tomorrow
there will not be a wheel turning on the
entire system. ' The matter has nof be
come national in extent, and will prob
ably settle the question of railway
strikes, for if the Union cannot win now.
it never can. . . '
Some fault is found by our merchants
on account of the time required to get
freight here from Portland, and also
that the company discriminates. In
order to understand the first cause of
complaint a visit to the Cascades is
necessary. This demonstrates the im
possibility of moving freight faster. On
the other" charge, the comrjanv has
adopted a rnle, which it has never vio
lated, of bringing all freight through in
the order in which it is received : first.
offered, first brought.
The Steamer Inns.
The steamer Irma, due here last nieht.
aid not arrive until noon today. She
left the locks at 3 o'clock vesterdav

9 :30, but when at Moeier broke a nnmn.
Captain Coe came up on the Regulator
last night to get an injector in place of
the pump, one he had ordered bv ex
press, but found it had been put off at
Mood Kiver. He went down this morn
ing, took the pump to pieces, and made
the run as stated. The little boat left
on the down trip shortly after 3 o'clock
and will get back to Hood River tonight,
and here about 7 o'clock tomorrow.
After that the mail will get in earlier on
account of the time being changed for
its arrival up at the locks. This, provid
ing the strike is not on.

The Green Bug on the Wheat.
Little green bugs have appeared in
myriad numbers in the wheat fields of
the Willamette valley and are to be
found thickly ensconsed in the open
space between the layers of wheat berries
along the heads. Thev have caused
great alarm for the safety of the present
crop and for the future of wheat growing
in this regian : but scientific investfoa
tion proves that the danger is not so
alarming as might be supposed. It is
true, this year's croD mav be ininred
some ty their depredations before they
are destroyed by their inevitable accom
paniment, the parasite, but the chances
are happily against such a result
Some beads of wheat plucked from a
field across the river in Polk county and
also from one in the Waldo hills were
shown to a Statesman representative
last evening, and while the green aphis.
for such it is, was very numerous, vet
the berries seemed to be sound and
healthy. But the reader will be more
interested in something authoritative on
this subject, so the Statesman is pleased
to present from the Corvallis Times the
following account of the little "varmint"
and the" manner of circumventing his
nefarious schemes against the prosper
ity of Oregon, as given bv Prof. F. L.
Washburn, of the Oregon Agricultural
"It is a small green insect that attacks
the stalks and later the heads of wheat,
rye and oats. It has a long beak with
which it extracts the sap. It is not des
tructive to the berry except that its ab
sorption of the sap robs it of nourish
ment and causes it to shrivel.
"As wheat ripens the aphis migrates
to the more succulent oats and 'when
these in turn ripen it goes to the various
grasses. It spreads over a wide extent
of territory quicker than any in Beet
known. Although its existence was
observed seventeen years before, the
grain aphis first appeared in great num
bers in 1861, spreading over New Eng
land, all of New York except the western
portion, northeastern Pennsylvania and
portions of Canada. Every grain field
was invaded and many of them thronged.
In many cases the wheat crop was re
duced one-half, and the oat crop hardly
paid for harvesting. The following year
it spread, over the remaining portion of
Canada and into Michigan, and then
disappeared. In 1883 it appeared in ten
counties in California doing considerable
damage to wheat, one man reporting
that the yield of his spring wheat was
diminished one-half by the ravages of
the pest. It was prevented from multi
plying by late rains to the extent that
damage was scarcely perceptible in
other counties. April 27th and 30th
and May 2d and 3d large flights of the
winged variety were noticed in Sacra
mento, but disappeared after the raina
of May 4th. In nearly every instance
where the pest has appeared it has been
met by a host of parasites, flies and ladv
beetles, and if it has not been at once
checked, -have prevented its reappear
ance the second year. In many cases
these natural enemies have prevented it
entirely from damaging grain. -
from specimens sent me I observe
that parasites are working on the aphis.
If these parasites are numerous enough,
no very serious damage may result. If
not numerous enough, manv . wheat
growers may lose a large portion of their
crop. There is no practicable remedy
that can be applied at present. Th

vest, together with all straw, weeds,
littel or waste of any kind, on or about
the field. This will destroy places
favorable for the insect's hibernation.
The experience in the East has shown
that this aphis may ruin a wheat crop
one season, and not be seen again in
that locality for many years. Whenever
the aphis turns a dark color either
brown or black it means that it is
doomed. This is caused by the work of
the parasite, which deposits the egg in
side the aphis the egg hatches and the
larvae feed on the tissues of the body of
the aphia producing the death of the
latter. The parasite finally emerges as
a wasp-like insect to repeat its good
The following from the Albany Demo
crat bears out the cheerful view taken in
the beginning of this article :
"The wheat aphis that is causing con
siderable talk is not a new thing in Ore
gon ; in fact it has been here for years.
A man tells a Democrat man that he
saw the aphis as early as 1878. It ap
pears this year in larger numbers than
usual, but it is probable will cause little
damage to the wheat, particularly to the
fall wheat." Salem Statesman.
Drowned at Turn water.
Mr. J. A. Splawn, who is engaged in
cutting hay on the other side of the
river, informs us of an accident that oc
curred at Tumwater about a week ago,
his informant being 'an Indian named
Jake Andrews. The latter says that
about a week ago a white man came
down in a small boat and landed at the
head of the rapids. Andrews talked
with him, and offered to haul his boat
around the rapids if he would ' wait un-
till morning. The man, however,
seemed to be an independent sort of a
fellow, and saying he had to get to The
Dalles that night, produced a long rope,
which he tied to the boat and under
took to lower it over the falls. After
going about a hundred yards the boat
took a sudden, plunge and pulled him
into the water. The Indians saw that
he kept afloat for a hundred yards or
so, and then went down, being seen no
more. Andrews describes the man as
being about six feet tall, dark com
plexion. PERSONAL MENTION.
