THE COMING WHEAT CROP.
There are evidences of a big wheat
crop in the Inland Empire this year.
Reports from all directions are most
flattering. There is not a "calamity , ,,,,;, , ., , t. .
dustry in California, New York and
Ohio amounts to ?8,437,7S3 out of a
put for the year of 32,508,435 sal
Ions. Kentucky ranked second and
Indiana third. In the manufacture of
vinous liquors California held first
place with a product valued at $3,
937,871. New York was second nnd
Ohio third. The manufacture of malt
and distilled liquors is fairly well dis
tributed throughout the dbuntry, but
the production of wine is largely cen
tered In the three states named. The
howl" from any farmer's throat.
The weather continues favorable and
the outlook grows better as harvest
While the prospects are so bright
James J. Hill has made an epigram
containing more good meat than epi
grams very ofton do. He wbb speak
ing at a meeting of the Illinois Manu
facturers' association held in Chicago
on the 3rd, and in advocating desert
irrigation, he said: "Land without
population is a wilderness, and popu
lation without land is n mob." It
was a keen thrust into the very heart
of the social question, much keener
thnn he suspected. For
he thought only of the prairie and
the desert, while what ho said Is j
quite as true of centers of popula-
ton, which are even now inhabited,,
and In some degree dominated by j
great mobs. Mr. Hill gave as a rea-j
son for this: "Population without!
land is a mob." The population of ourj
cities is without land, to the extent;
of 75 and SO and even 90 per cent.j
or more. Yet these same cities have,
within their limits more idle land
than any other kind. Here land with
out population, though congested!
populations swarm around it, is in-j
deed a wilderness. "Laud without
population is a wilderness; popula-l
tlon without land is a mob." Louis

area or tne country, reports are not
so flattering from areas east of the
According to the June report of the
department of agriculture the crop
of spring and winter wheat will not
be so large this year as it was last
year. Last year's total acreage of
wheat is given at 4D,S95,514, with an
estimated harvest of 744,000,000
For this year it is estimated the
acreage will be 45,738,000 and the
yield about 665,000,000 bushels, or
about 80,000,000 bushels less than
last year. This crop will be short in
Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota and the
Dakotas. The crop in foreign coun
tries will not be so good as last year.
The prospects for stiffer prices for
the cereal are, therefore, excellent.
However, nothing definite as to
prices can as yet be determined.
Reports from Argentina, India and
other foreign wheat growing areas
are not in and at no time are they
altogether reliable, affording a poor
basis on which to guage the market,
but enough seems to be clear that
prices will rule a shade higher than
last year, which insures good re
turns to the happy and prosperous'
Inland Empire farmers, whose cloud
has seldom anything but a sliver lining.

It is noted
Census bulletin No. 180, recently
Issued, gives statistics of the manu
facture of alcoholic liquors In 1900,
-which was the first time the indus
try was made the subject of a spe
cial Inquiry by the census office. The
report is not absolutely correct It
Is stated the determination to pub
lish detailed statistics of the Industry
;was reached too late in the organiza
tion of the Census Office work to
permit the preparation of special
schedules for the collection of Infor
mation, and the general schedule for
manufacturers had to be used in ob
taining data. As a consequence there
Is a lack of uniformity and complete
ness in the returns.
The Census Office divides the in
quiry into three branches, those of
malt, vinous and distilled liquors.
The reports from all branches of
He industry show that 1,198.602.104
gallons of malt liquors, 103,330,423
gallons of distillates and 23,425,667
gallons of wlna. were manufactured
daring the census year ending May
21, 1900. This is a total for all
classes of 1,325,358,094 gallons,
which does not include quantities
reported from small establishments
with a product less than $500 each;
Tt.e returned from farms and as a
subsidiary product of distilleries;
and spirits returned from wineries
principally as a by-product.
In the manufacture of malt li
quors New Tork leads, the value of
her product of that kind in the cen
sus year being 156,137,854. Pennsyl
Tanla was second and Illinois third.
Xb the production of distilled liquors
Winds leads the union with an out-
that the total valuation includes $96.-
789,443 as the valuation of distilled II-1
quors, and that amount includes an t
indeterminate amount of internal re-!
venue tax, which cannot be accurate-'
ly computed because of lack of!
uniformity in reporting it. The re
port says: "If such tax were includ
ed in every instance the value of the
distillates reported would approxi
mate $140,000,000, and the total val
ue of all liquors would be increased
from $340,615,466 to about $384,000,
000. Returns from breweries uniform
ly included internal revenue tax in
values of products."

THE OREGON PIONEERS.
The Oregon pioneers held their an
nual meeting last week and hundreds
of men and women came together to
talk of the old days when the Wil
lamette valley was first filling up
with those who had crossed the
plains In ox-teams. There were pio
neers present who settled in the val
ley as far back as 1838 and the dates
of arrival ranged from that year to
1859. Although these people went
back in reminiscence more than half
a century, the majority of them
were reasonably strong and sturdy,
and showed in their vigor what an
equitable climate will do toward pre
serving strengtL of body and seren
ity of mind through 50 years of coun
In one sense all those who crossed
the plains to the northwest are Ore
gon pioneers, for it was the Oregon
country they sought, and, while
many passed to the moist but mild
er regions beyond the Cascades,
others remained to try their fortunes
in what has become the great Inland
Empire. The people of the two sec
tions always felt drawn together by
close ties, for trade relations were
soon established that were not brok
en off for years and during a gener
ation the gateway to the interior
was by the Columbia.
While the first settlers met with
not a few hardships, as a class they
were never subjected to the priva
tions encountered by those who first
made their homes in New England,
western New York and Pennsylvania
and later in what is now the middle
west. Their troubles with the In
dians were insignificant compared
with the long drawn out struggles
agaii.Jt the mighty tribes that once
held sway in the east
The early Oregonians went without
luxuries, but in getting plain creature
comforts they never encountered the
difficulties met by those who nrst
tried to wrest a living from the rocky
soil of chill New England or by
those who eked out a somewhat pre
carious existence while fighting the
savages beyond the Alleghanies.
The Willamette valley pioneers
found that their lives had fallen in
comparatively pleasant places. Fa
vored with a mild climate and rich
soil, agriculture was easy and a liv
ing was obtained with probably less
effort than in anv other section of
the country. Thus the Wllamette
valley folk began to drift along com
fortably, quietly and aimlessly, get
ting more or less contentment from
llfo without wearying drudgery, as
they settled into a comfortable rut
that satisfied them, evon if they did
not make the valley the rich produc
tive, progressive garden spot it ought
to be. Spokesman-Review.
