KniTOii Orkho.n- Scovt:
Mr. Harrison lias iwognizivl the La
bor organizations hy aipoiuting Mr.
11. ,1. Selmltios, of tho District of Co
lumbia, who is prominently eonneetod
with tho I'Yderution of Lubor, tin ailtli
tional nioiubor of the iinntigiation
commission provided for bv the last
l congress, the duties of which wjll ho to
' proceed to Ktirope for the purpose of
1 investigating immigration. The ap
, pointment of Mr. Salinities may also
be considered as 11 seini-olliei.tl nvo :
j nition of the people's party recently
formed at Cincinnati, us he was ly
that convention named as one of the
District of Columbia representatives
on the national committee of the new
Kx-Congressinan Grosvonor, of Ohio,
who was originally appointed chair
man of the immigration commission,
and whose ill-advi-ed criticism of for
eign born American citizens rai-eii
such a row a few weeks ago, wired his
resignation to Secretary Foster and it
was promptly accepted. It was such a
relief to Secretary Foster and Mr. Har
rison to receive Gen. Grosvenor's tva
iguution that they rewarded him for
sending it in hy making him a sjieci tl
World's Fair commissioner, a position
that pays precisely the same and which
also includes an allowance for a trip to
ICuropo. There are people malicious
enough to say that Grosvenor would
not have resigned if ho had not been
promised the other place beforehand.
Oilice seekers are always an unmiti
gated nuisance to those whom tln-y
suppose to he possessed of inlhtencc
with tho appointing powers, and .1
striking instance of how they made
life a torture for the friends of an esti
mable old .-entlemtin who-o goodness
of heart prevented his snubbing I ho j
whole tribe as they deserved to be in- j
stead of worrying himself sick in try- j
ing to get them appointments or pro-
motions, as the ease might be, lias just j
come to light here. Tho peivecutcd
old gentleman in this case is no less a
personage than Piesident Harrison's
father-in-law, Kev. Dr. Scott, who has
for some months been an honored in
mate of the White House, hut who has
now gone on an indefinite visit to his
i-oii who resides away out on the Pa
cilio coast. Dr. Scott is now in his
eighty-third year, and it seems a bhunio
that ho should have to bo sunt across
the continent to got him away from
the persistent odice-seekers, but there
is little doubt that such is the fact.
Ho did not resent this persecution; on
the contrary ho seeined to like it, and
his only worry wan that tho heads of
departments would not make the ap
pointments and promotions which lie I
was constantly asking for and oven
insisting upon. It was only recently
that President and Mrs. Harmon be
came aware of tho number and per
sistency of Dr. Scott's, calls upon tho
heads of the departments in behalf of
some one who had convinced him by
some plausible story that they were
deserving of receiving an appointment,
and it was extremely mortifying to
thorn both. Persuasion failing to slop
him, he was sent on this visit.
Vorily tho way of tho political organ
is a hard one. Tho backers of tho Na
tional Democrat have become tired of
throwing good money down a "rat"
hole, and unless a purchaser for the
paper can bo found it will probably
There are lots of rumors, somo of
thorn highly sensational, as to why
Secretary Poster did not attend tho
Ohio convention, after having an
nounced his intention to do ho, and
what makes it look still queerer is that
he did go to Ohio yosterday, tho day
after tho convention had adjourned.
Important public business is given out
as thecauso of his not getting away in
time to attend tho convention, hut
somehow nobody believes that to have

Crop Weather, Bulletin No. 16.
The observer of the Oregon Weather
Bureau, of Portland, Oregon, has is
sued the bulletin for the week ending
Saturday, .lune 127, lS'.H, the same bp
ins based upon reports received from
117 correspondents, which is as follows:
Weather. The weather has con
tinued cloudy and cool, and general
showers have prevailed, especially in
the fore part of the week. While the
rainfall tho present month has been
unusually heavy, yM in June 1SS8
mere tain fell at most stations. About
one inch of rain fell tho past week in
the Willamette valley and about one
half an inch fell in Southern Oregon.
Crops. The fall wheat has had
wonderful growth and is reported very
high. Wheat seven feet high is re
ported from Yamhill county. There
has been no rust so fur, I bough in
places it. is very heavy and has lodged
somewhat. Spring wheat has a good
stand and will yield remarkably well.
Warmth mid sunshine are needed to
ripen the wheat and lo prevent ru-d
and further lodging. ('lover bus been, j close nt Telocaset. I believe the peo
to some extent, damaged. Ilav is nil ! plo of that district are about to hiro
ready to cut, bul the wet weather lias
greatly retarded it. Strawberries and
cherries have rotted considerably, ow-
ing to cool, wet weather. Hup grow
ers Hope thai, the wet. weather will
help kill the hup lice. The cool nighls
have piovented the lli-jlits of Hie
coillin moth and they are less ap
parent than usual. Corn is doing
well, but like all vegetation needs moie
sunshine and warmer weather. West
ern Oiegon prospects wer never bet
ter at this season of the year, than ut
present, for a most bountiful harvest.
Weather. Tho weather has con
tinued cool and paitly cloudy, and
general rains have fallen, with snow
on the higher elevations south of the
IMuc mountains. The total rainfall
this mouth h is been in excess, ut most
places, of any previous record.
Crops. Tho rains have been most
beneficial to the growing wheat, other
cereals, corn, fruit and garden pio
duets, also to the liny and stock feed.
All vegetation has a brighter prospect
for a good harvest than for in my pre
vious years. Summer fallow wheat
will yield enormously. Spring and
volunteer wheat will be good crops ex
cept in some few sections whore it was
burnt in .May. Fruit is thriving and
doing well, but, needs warmer weather.
Oregon as a whole bus boon carefully
estimated and conclusions made that
tho present prospects indicate at least
one million more bushels of wheat this
year than last.

Another special school meeting was
called on last Saturday for the purpose
of voting a tax to repair the school
house and also purchase new desks for
the same, as tho old ones were not
considered good enough. Tho meet
ing was called to order hy chairman
G. F. Dunn. After an eloquent debate
both for and against, a vole was taken
which ended m a defeat of tho tax to
the ttinu of 17 to -1. Jt was then de

Tlie white winter barley sown on
tiie farms in A ntolopo last fall for tho
f 1 it-1 time, us an experiment, did not
winterkill. It now looks fine. This
has been an unusually dry, cold, back
ward spring and fall sown grain did
not grow as fast as in ordinary spring
weather. I believe it is the grain for
the dry warm lands of Antelope.
I seo by the papers that tho fruit
canneries down in Wobfoot cannot
supply tho trade in canned gooseber
ries. What a pity there is no fruit
cannery at Union. Hut tliero will bo
some day. Hundreds of tons of tho
luscious fruit annually go to waste in
Eastern Oregon for want of a cannery.
Wo can heat tho world raising goose
berries. Thuio is a fortune for tho
man that invents a machine for gat ti
ering gooseberries and another fortuno
for the man that establishes a fruit
cannery in Union.
1 noticed an item in the Republican
last week advising correspondents to
avoid all personal wrangles "remem
ber thoy are of no interest to the peo
ple generally" wiltcli is very good ad
vice. But groat Ciosar's ghost! It
sounds strange to hear such advice
lromonoof Union county's editors. It
is a flagrant case of the pot calling tho
kcttlo black. I low can the editors of
the Union county newspapers blame
their correspondents for engaging now
and then in a poroonal wrangle hut
perhaps thoy give their correspondents
the credit of possessing more sonso
than thomsolves When week aftor
week their papers, to the soul aflliction
of a long Htitforing public, are filled
with thu personal wrangles of tho edi
tors. Tho last week or two tho county
papers have been quite decent, hut it
is only tho calm that precedes a storm.
The public will bo agreeably surprised
and delighted if in loss than thirty
days the editors of tho Union county
papers are not indicting their personal
wrangles on tho people calling ono
another liars, and saying you don't
writo your loaders yoursoUor that
