Oregon State Weather Service for
Weather No rain fell during the past
Week, except from thunder storms, and
his was confined to tho southern portion,
brinci Daily over the stock country. The
laax.ii- Pa temperature of the week oc-
pured on Friday, when it ranged in the
Columbia river valley from 95 to 101
f eg. ; eouth of the Blue mountains it
anged from 54 to 68 deg. in the vaHey
and about 8 deg. lower to the south.
jUp to Sanday there were few clouds,
and almost continuous sunshine. Sun-
pay and Monday were cooler, the maxi
mum temperature langing below 80 deg.
The winds have been northerly, and full
Crops Condition even worse than
hose of the preceding week are report
3d. The late spring and volunteer grain
are about gone up; the fall, winter and
early spring-sown grain will make a crop
less than the average. The dry, hot
weather is proving to be injurious to the
ruit. The hay crop is light, and the
range grass is becoming poorer. The
ollowing extracts are made from the
correspondents' report, as they convey
i more lucid idea of the conditions as
they exist, than a summarized state
ment would do:
"The Dalles, Wasco county The hot
weather of the past week has been very
trying to all cereals and vegetation ; the
drouth has been quite severe, but the
grain looks remarkably well. Volunteer
'grain is practically done for, but that
grain well put in is in fine condition,
and with cool weather of Sunday and to
day will make a good crop. Oats will
be short. Barley will yield well. The
evaporation has not been so great this
year as formerly, and the soil is moist, so
that with cool weather Wasco county
will yet have fair crops. Potatoes are
doing well, aud fruit is in fine condition.
Thefcodlin moth has made its appear
ance, btraw berries are all gone. Cher
ries are at their beet. Red June and
early harvest apples are ripening."
,'Waco, Sherman county In the
souther? portion of the county the
wheat crop is poor; in the northern
portion the prospects for a fair crop are
'MASONS NOT EXEMPTED.
Captain-General Campos Permits no
frivate Meetiuga In Havana.
New Yohk, July 2. A special froai
Havana says :
Captain-General Mortinez Campos,
acting on the supposition that the people
of Havana are in sympathy with the re
volutionists, issued a general order when
he first came here, prohibiting private
meeting under severe penalties.
Not even the Masons were exempted,
put powerful influence was brought to
bear upon him in their behalf and he
consented to modify the proclamation so
that it would not affect them. The
grand lodge of the Island of Cuba, situ
ated in this city, was overjoyed at this
and Masons showed their gratitude to
Campoa in many ways.
. All this joy, however, was short-lived,
for the captain-general has issued an
other order specifically prohibitingmeet
ing of Masonic lodges, and aa a result
trouble is feared in many quarters.
The Trans Paciflo Cable.
San Fkancisco, July 2. Hugh Craig,
vice-president of the chamber of com-
inerce, says that from a thorough inves
tigation of the subject he is convinced
that the Pacific cable, which has been
talked about for years on this side of
the TJuited States, and discussed ad in
terim in congress, is to be built by Brit
To the statement thatEnglishmen and
Australians, with Canada, have decided
to undertake the work, he adds the fur
ther fact that the difficulty of obtaining
a midocean station has been overcome.
It will be remembered that the United
States government decided last winter
not to sanction the establishment of
such a station on any of the Hawaiian
islands to be controlled solely by Brit
Highest of all in Leavqpmg Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report
ishers. To avoid international compli
cations, a station has been decided upon
in latitude 3 north, on Fanning island.
The cable is to be laid from Auckland,
N. Z., to Norfolk island, in the South
Pacific,-a distance of 415 miles. The
second eection of a cable will be from
Norfolk to Fiji, a distance of 1537 miles,
the third to Fanning island, 1715 miles,
and the fourth and largest section, from
Fanning island to Vancouver, B. C, a
distance of 3232 miles. The total length
of this cable would thus be 6899 miles,
or almoBt three times as long as the
shortest transatlantic cable.
The cost of this cable from Auckland
to Vancouver will be 51,000,000. This
cable, it is proposed, shall be only one
of a number of cables connecting with it
in the southern hemisphere. The prin
cipal connection will be between Auck
land and Syndey, New South Wales.
Any one who has ever had an atack
of inflammatory rheumatism will rejoice
with Mr. J. A. Stumm, 220 Boyle
Heights; Los Angeles, over his fortunate
escape from a siege of that distressing
ailment. Mr. Stumm is - foreman of
Merrian's confectionery establishment.
Some months ago, on leaving the heated
work room to run across the street on an
errand, he was caught out in the rain.
The result was that when ready to go
home that night be was unable to walk,
owing to inflammatory rheumatism. He
was taken home, and on arrival was
placed in front of a good fire and
thoroughly rubbed with Chamberlain's
Pain Balm. During the evening and
night he was repeatedly bathed with this
liniment, and by morning was relieved
of all rheumatic pains. He now takes
especia pleasure in praising Chamber
lain's Pain Balm, and always keeps a
bottle of it in the house. For sale by
Blakeley & Houghton, Druggists.
The constitution that has been broken
down or weakened by long standing dis
orders in the liver and kidneys, is ill
fitted to withstand the encroachment of
disease. Such a person takes cold easily,
cannot stand fatigue, and in cases of epi
demics, is the first to fall a victim. The
proper course is to remove the cause of
weakness by treating the liver and kid
neys. Dr. J. H. McLean ,s Liver and
Kidney Balm will reach the seat of
trouble and restore the diseased organs
to healthy functional activity. Increased
nourishment of the body will follow and
the patient will rapidly regain health
and strength. Price $1.00 per bottle.

There is no danger from this disease
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is freely
given. It liquefies the tough mucus and
aids its expectoration. It also lessens
the severity and frequency of paroxysms
of coughing, and insures a speedy recov
ery. There is not the least danger in
giving the remedy to children or babies,
as it contains no iujurious substance.

Klmballs Methods a Meuaee
phicago Musical News ,
The following advertisement has been
given a prominent position in the daily
papers of Washington, D. C. and has
been printed in the Chicago Musical
News and the American Hebrew News,
of Portland. We desire to call the atten
tion of the public to it.
The unfairness of the assertions it con
tains needs no emphasizing, for they
will appear at once to the sense of right
inherent in every legitimate dealer in
pianos all over the country:
Next Tuesday will be a special bar
gain day on pianos at our store. We
have found some grand bargains in new
Upright Pianos (not the celebrated Kim
ball pianos), and propose to give the
public a chance . to secure new pianos
next Tuesday at manufacturers' whole
The prices Tuesday next for these new
elegant Upright pianos will be only $149
and $159 each. Part time given if de
sired. These pianos will be on exhibit
at our store all day Monday, but no sales
will be made from this lot until Tuesday,
and will continue that day only.

The Kimball Company may regard
such methods aa fair and honorable, but
they are open to the severest criticism in
attempting to destroy the piano trade in
Washington after many years of honor
able work to promote it.
The unfairness of the card lies in the
assertion that the pianos which are to
be sold at sacrificial prices are not made
by the Kimball company. Therein is
This whole scheme ia perpetrated to
give the Kimball pianos a position to
which their merits do not entitle them.
Although the Kimball advertisement de
clares these are not Kimball pianos
which are to be slaughtered it does not
enhance the value of their own instru
ments. Those who are familiar with the Kim
ball pianos know perfectly well that the
makers can afford to sell them at just
such ruinous prices as are quoted for
other instruments in their possession at
What is there in the Kimball piano to
justify this step? Nothing.
The Kimball company make one of the
cheapest pianos in the United States.
And after the Kimball piano is made
ready for the market it is not then worth
a place above a low rank.
When you come to think of it, can you
name any genuine, firstclas house thai is
telling the Kimball pianost
The Kimball managers may consider
they have made a brilliant stroke, but
they are merely using gigantic power to
foist a cheap make on 'he market.
The question is also one of a broader
conception than mere local purview.
Such advertisements as these cnt at the
root of the piano industry for they mis
lead private buyers.
We shall not let this subject stop here.
It is fraught with grave danger to the
entire trade, and, although the Kimball
company is composed of schrewd schem
ers, they may find they have far over
stepped the bounds of legitimate busi
