Notice to Water Consumers.
Weather Crop Valletta No. 6 of the
Oregon State Weather Service
for Eastern Oregon.
Following is the report for the week
ending Monday, May 6th ;
Cooler, cloudy weather with rain
showers has prevailed since May 1st.
The maximum temperatures ranged
from 58 to 75 degrees; the minimum
temperatures fell from 12 to 15 degrees.
the minimum remaining stationary.
The rainfall was heavy and general,
ranging from one-half to three-quarters
of an inch. A The Dalles it was .75 of
an inch, which is .11 more than the
average for May. In Umatilla county
and to the south thereof, the average
May rainfall is from 1 to 2.6 inches, of
which 20 to 30 per centum has already
fallen. The rainfall was especially heavy
on Saturday and Sunday.
The rainfall was badly needed and its
coming most opportune, the ground is
now in good condition for plowing and
fall seeding and in excellent condition
for the growth of the cereal, bay, fruit
and berry crops. Some correspondents
are of the opinion that the present rains
have insured a full cereal crop, but past
experience baa shown that the product
depends more upon the June weather
than upon the May rainfall. The rains
have been of inestimable value and ben
efit and with favorable June weather,
will make a large cereal output. Straw
berries are ripening at Hood River and
The Dalles, a few haying already ripened.
Green pears are in the market at Tbe
Dalles. Fruit prospects continue excel
lent and barring frosts, a large crop will
result. Range' feed is good, Stock in
prime condition. Sheep shearing with
uniformly heavy and good fleece con
tinues. Prospects for all crops are first
clasp at present time. '

The Passing of the Horse.
The water commission has ordered
that the rules concerning the use of
water for irrigation be printed and
posted upon tbe gates of consumers, so
that all may understand, what tbe rules
are. This has been done as ordered.
The great waste of water heretofore, and
the limited supply make the enforce
ment of these rules absolutely neces
sary. All consumers will please take
notice of these regulations, and in case
of a violation of the rules, the water will
be at once shut off and a charge of $1
will be made before again making the

A prominent electric company has col
lected some startling figures, which show
the almost incalculable influence. of the
introduction of the electric car, taken
merely on its one basis of replacing the
horse for traction purposes. It is eeti
mated that electric cars have already dis
placed 1,100,000 horses, and this esti
mate is manifestly far below the actual
number. The feeding of these horses
would entail the consumption of $500,-
000 bushels of corn or oats a day. The
animals are now back on grass, and the
enormous decrease in corn and oats con
sumption caused by their withdrawal is
sufficient to appreciably affect the prices
of these grains. In round figures, it
amounts to 180,000,000 bushelB a year.
There is another view ot this subject,
tbe significance of which will probably
be more apparent a few years hence than
it is even now. The loss of commercial
demand for these coarse grains in the
cities means an enormous decrease in
tbe tonage of the railroad. freight traffic.
This failure is already put at a minimum
of 250,000 car leads. But itia not only
in public traffic that the day of tbe
horse is waning. In some cities tbe
electric car lines have been so judiciously
distributed, and give such excellent ser
vice, that many private families have
given up their carriages, ana use trie
electric cars instead. In many places
the business of the liverymen is practi
cally ruined by the electric car, and, as
at Niagara falls, the formerly arrogant
and extortionate hackman has become a
comparatively civil and temporizing in
dividual. The electric car and the bicy
cle has sounded the knell of the horse
as a commercial factor.
