PRICES OF CATTLE.
Regarding the effect on next year's
prices wrought by the very heavy
sales of cattle in Oregon this season,
a well known livestock buyer gives
the East Oregonian this opinion :
'An enormoii9 quantity of beef
and stock cattle has been shipped
from Oregon this year. From Hun
tington went 15,000 bead; from Ar
lington, 7,000 bead ; from Pendleton
went 4,000; from Heppuer were
shipped 1,000 head ; from Elgin,Echo
and The Dalles and other Eastern
Oregon points were shipped several
thousand more, bringing up the total
to no less than 30,000 to 35,000. On
an average valuation of $20 per head
these cattle brought the growers be
tween $600,000 and $700,000, a
handsome sum, and representing a 10
per cent, return on $6,000,000 or $7,
000,000, as business men are accus
tomed to put it.
"I have heard of late frequent com
ments as to what effect this heavy
selling will have on next year's pric
es. It is assumed that the selling
down so closely and draining the
country of stock cattle will insure
higher prices for next year in this
section. This view I am compelled
to combat. People have not thought
carefully when they have given an3
such opinion. Let me give you my
analysis of the situation.
"The greater part of these Oregon
cattle which were shipped East, and
most of the cattle shipped went East,
were stock cattle for the ranges of
Nebraska, Montana, "Wyoming, the
Dakotas and Colorado. They are
simply taken to the big ranch ranges
and fattened for the Eastern market.
They are yet in the United States.
The supply of beef prospective is not
affected in the least. The cattle
were merely moved from one local
ity to another, and are not yet thrown
on the final market. So that, while
Oregon has sold short, we are by no
means to profit by the surety of a rise
in price next jear. Even though
cattle are scarcer throughout all of
Oregon, next year may see even low
er prices than were paid this j'ear,
when so many cttle were sent out.
The situation among the coal min
ers is growing desperate, and it is
only a question of time until there is
blood shed. Already shots have been
exchanged, but fortunately no one
was hurt. It is plain to be seen that
the operators are playing for delay,
knowing that hunger will cause the
strikers to commit acts of lawless
ness and that then the government
will have to interfere. The law must
be upheld, and yet one who realizes
the cruel oppressiveness of the mine
owners can hardly refrain from tbe
wish that if blood is shed it will not
all come from the veins of the min
ers. The latter are entitled to live,
as well as the former; and death that
comes suddenly from the rifle is
preferable to starvation.

If the Canadian government 8U3
ceeds in collecting that 20 per cent

this country should send a few of its
officials up there to see how it is
done. What Canada gets out of an

Captains W. P. and James Gray
are contemplating .taking the old
Oregon and California ferry-boat to
the Yukon. Her hull is of steel, and
once in the Yukon she would be a
dandy. The Grays think she could
make the trip all right, and there are
plenty of people anxious enough to
go to take their chances on her. It
is not probable that this will be done,
but it shows what chances a man will
take when he gets the "yellow" fever.
The only business Congress
has before it now is that of
the Senate in confirming nom
inations made by the presi

made and confirmed, it would serve
two good purposes. Let the disap

whole lot off the anxious seat, and

What U9e ia therein eating when food
does you no good in fact, when it does
yon more harm than good, for each is
the case if it is not digested?
If yon have a loathing for food there
is no use of forcing it down, tor it will
not be digested. Yoo must restore the
digestive organs to'their natural strength
and cause the food to be digested, when
an appetite will come, and with it a re

It is idle to experiment with other rem

remedy has a record of cures and besides
