THE CONUNDRUM OF THE WEEK.
Tno Blaine Boom A Curious Presiden
tial Ticket Annual Association
Washington, August 21, ISil
Why bus Mr. Harrison cut short his
vacation and determined to n'turn t(
j Washington early in September? is
j the political conundrum of tho week
! Secretary Foster, who brought tho
! news of tho change of programme
says that it is because of important
I business connected with the interior
j department which requires President
Harrison's personal attention. That
gave speculation a wide range, and tho
eonseipionco is that every imaginable
sort of important business is being put
forward as tho cause of this supposed
to bo sudden determination, but tho
most generally believed .story seems to
be that the "important business con
uected with tho interior department"
is the selection of some one to take
Secretary Noble's place, as thoro is tho
host authority for stating that Secre
tary Noble is extremely anxious to lay
down his onerous burden as i-oon as he
can do so without embarrassment to
his chief. Many alto believe that a
change is to bo made in the head of
tho pension ollice, tho most important,
as far as si.o and cost aro concerned,
of tho bureaux under the interior de
partment, but both these places have
been tthanged so often by report tlut
there aro naturally many doubters
There is another important matter
under the supervision of the interior
department that may have had some
thing to do witli bringing the presi
dent homo ahead of the time ho ex
pected to come. That department
lias brought all tho power at its dis
posal to boar upon the cattle hnrons
who occupy what is known as the
Cherokee outlet in order to got thorn
to comply with tho law enacted by
congress and remove therefrom, but if
reports received hero aro to bo relied
upon not ono ot thorn lias moved or
given tho slighest intimation of any
such intention. The matter will be
called to Mr. Harrison's attention as
soon as lie comes back, and it is said
that tho department officials will urgo
upon him the necessity of removing
tho violators of law by force.
It may be too that tho now reciproc
ity treaty with Venozula, which is
Baid to need only Mr. Harrison's ap
proval and his official proclamation to
go into effect, lias had something to do
with changing his plans. There aro
also other thins which need attontion.
For instance it is generally conceded
that a coaling station in tho West In
dies is a necessity for this government,
and according to Fred Douglass our
late minister to Hayti, wo liavo no
prospect of getting one from that
country at Molo St. Nicholas. Whoro
shall we got ouo? The roport that the
German government was trying to buy
tho island of St, Thomas, lias brought
to memory tho fact that Denmark, its
owner, onco as a mark of friendship,
offered to soil it to tho United States
for a nominal prico, and Secretary
Seward, then at tho head of tho state
department, agreed to its purchase,
but for somo reason it was nover
bought. It might bo bought now, if
Germany has not already got ahead of
us. Thoro is no lack of important
business to occupy Mr. Harrison's
attention wlion ho rolurus.
Tho squabblo in tho Pennsylvania
republican convention about tho reso
lution endorsing Blaino has boon
much discussed by a fow politicians of
both parties who uro now in Washing
ton, and they all agree that it looks
like tho Blaino boom is to bo ono of
tho regular foaturcs of tho 6ampaign,
instead of a mero flush in tho pan, as
somo peoplo hud bson disposed to re
gard it, and there boems to bo a dispo
sition on tho purt of ull of thorn to
bolievo that Mr, Blaino is bound to bo
nominated unless Wo positively forbids
tho use of his numo, and thoro is a
growing impression that ho will not do
A Now England republican, now in
Washington, hai suggcutcd a curious
presidential ticket which lie says
would prove a t,trong one if run on a
platform which shall have no other
planks except reciprocity and opposi
tion to sham civil service reform. Tho
ticket which he think would just lit
that platform is Blaine, of Maine, and
Gordon, of Geogia. Truly, that would
be a combination of nppoMtes and
handoulls would probably be required
to keep it together.
We have lots of people in Washing
ton this week, but no polities to speak
of. The American Association for tho
Advancement of Science, more than a
thousand strong, is holding its annual
regatta on the Potomac, and W 'dnes
day and Thmxlay tho veteran tt le
graph operators including the "old
time telegraphers" and the "military
telegraphers" hold a reunion which
closed with probably the most unique
meeting ever held in this or any
other country. Thoro wero wires run
ning into the hail connected with
every large telegraph oflico in tho
country, and every word of the
speeches made by Mr. Wauamaker and
others was instantly ticked to more
than one hundred thousand listening
operators in every section of the
State department officials will
neither deny nor confirm tho report
that a new reciprocity pioposition had
been recently made by the Canadian

Crops. Wheat is all cut and most
of it is threshed. In every section tho
yield has boon above the expectations
of oven tho most sanguine. Tho
wheat is plump, heavy, and of excel
lent quality. Outs aro heavy and as a
rule aro largo in yields ; late oats havo
boon injured slightly by rust in parts
of Marion county. The threshers will
bo busy for about two weeks yot. Hop
picking begins noxt Monday ; in some
sections considerable damage has been
done by tho lice, in other sections a
good avorago crop will bo picked. In
losophino county hop lico aro not
observablo and no damage has been
done. Fruit is ripening rapildy and is
very plentiful. Tomatoes and canto-
loupes aro now gonarally ripening.
Tho hot, dry wcathor has been slightly
injurious to root crops, clover and
corn, and to young orchards. In Cur
ry county tho second crop of red
clover is heading and tho fourth crop
of alfalfa has been cut. Each crop
averaged, in stalk, 22 inches in longth.

with maximum temperature of from
90 to 105 degrees, has prevailed. No

Crops. Tho wcathor has boon
slightly injurious to tho corn crop, but
favorable to fruit, melons, and to har
vesting. Fruit and melons aro ripon-
ing rapidly and aro vory plentiful.
Tho wheat is nearly all cut west of tho
Blue mountains, aud considorablo has
bocen threshed ; ull roports show that
it is turning out much hotter than was
expected. In Wasco and parts of
Sherman county spring and' fall wheat
is somewhat shrunken. In Gilliam,
Morrow and Umatilla counties tho
wheat crop as a wholo was nover hot
ter. Harvesting is in progress east
and south of tho Blue mountains.
Union county especially has a 11 no
crop of cerouls, but ull counties havo
crops abovo tho avorago. Smut is
found in tho wheat in sections of
Grant county. Prices aro about 20
por cent higher than last year, with an
upward tondonoy, Farmers uro happy,
