A Letter From Texas.
F. P. Morgafl, cf this city, re
ceived a letter recently -from his
brother, who li?fes in Texas. It
13 a very interesting let'er and
amang other things contaifis the
fGilow.iTig aeeount of crop condi-
"You ask of crop conditions
here this year. They are nearer
a complete failure over tliz entire
state than ever before. There
will not over, one-half crop of
anything raised in any. part of
the state and in many places the
yield will not be more than onc
fourtli to one-third of a crop.
Now, yea may think this an ex
aggeration, but it -J3 a fafife. ' The
erops la Western Texas were
very late en account of late cold
and dry spring. W&ea they did
come op the grasshoppers eat
tBem up entirely as far east as
Abilene. Later the , dronth
struck the country and, as there
is no grass or tvater, stock is
starving and it is predicted that
before wiater there will be very
few cattle in tba westera,coun-
ttf. In a few of the Northwest
ern ooanties some showers have
fallen and there is some vegita
tion there. In all of Southwest
ern Texas as far east as Dallas
there will not be more than a
quarter of a crop of anything
raised. The people are" in an
awful fix. T&e failure i9 much
worse than ia 1896 and 1897,
when we had two successive
drouths. Corals worth $i per
bushel now, and none for sale.
"Starvation is 1 staring many
poorpeople In the face in West
ern Texas and in some other
parts of the state. I am very
glad that I got out of Business
the first of the year when busi
ness was good. Business is so
dull here that merchants are
fiardly paying expenses. People
are having to spend their, cash to
send off after corn, wheat and
hay. Formerly good hay was
worth $5 per ton, now the meat
worthless grade sells at from $12
to $15 per ton. All of the hogs
in the coantry have been sold
and shipped oai of the markets
on accaant of there being noth
ing to feed them on."
E. . H. Morgan's letter was
written at Granburry, Hood
conaty, Texas. This is in the
central part of the state. For
many months jtist past Mr. Mor-
an has been engaged as travel-
ng salesman for a large drag es
tablishment and has been in a
position to ascertaia the' exact
state of affairs. The writer gives
t as his opinioa that if the peo
ple realized what Oregon offered
ia the way of climate and crops
there would bs a large emmigra
tion to this country. Some peo
ple intend coming any way, and
la all likelihood Mr. Morgan will
ioin us next year.
