This morning he leaves for St. Helens,
and from there goes to Astoria and other
lower river points, returning to Portland
Thursday, when he will speak here. Mr.
Bennett says the Democrats have as
good a show to win in this district as
any other party this year. He talks in
favor of free silver and a revenue tariff
on wool. Martin Quinn, the Populist
congressional nominee, also talks in
favor of free silver and in. favor of a pro

Mr.j Mark Levy, a leading fruit buyer
and commission man of Portland, is in
the city today. ' He speaks in most en
couraging terms of the. market for fruit
the coming season, and believes that
Portland can alone furnish a good mar
ket for, Wasco county fruits. He says
that the Willamette valley will have a
lighter crop than for twelve years ; that
peaches, prunes and early apples are al
most a total failure, and that cherries
and'strawberries will not be more than a
half crop. -: The general failure is caused
by the excessive rains, which were un
usually prolonged this season.

" The bulletin of May 11th, issued ' by
the climate and. crop service says that
the first ripo Oregon etraw Berries .are'
reported from Hood River on the 9th
inst., a few ripe ones having been gath
ered on that date. Last year ripe
strawberries were reported in the bulle
tin of May 5th, so that it is seen that
there is little difference in the two years
as regards, at least.; this one product.
Reports from Hood River indicate that
the weather has been favorable to fruit,
including berries. The .fruit prospects
are good. The weather has affected the
fruit but little, except to retard it. The
weather has been' very favorable to the
grain crop ; the wheat has stooled well
and is well rooted. Range grass is im
proving, and cattle are reported to be in
good condition. Sheepshearing con

' Frank Stice, who was convicted of as
sault with a dangerous weapon, was on
Monday last ' sentenced to serve two
years in the penitentiary. '. In passing
sentence Judge Bradshaw ' took occasion
to give some very appropriate advice,
and calling attention to his having been
before the court on a criminal charge
some years ago for which be was then
convicted, and at which . time the court
informed hfm that unless he reformed
he would land in the penitentiary, he
then proceeded , to inform him that he
was now on a plain road to the gallows.
It was remarked by some that the lec
turing given Stice by the court was
equal to a year's confinement in prison.
