Crop-Weathor Bulletin, No. 2G.
The observer of the Oregon Weather
Bureau, of Portland, Oiegon, has is
sued the bulletin for the week ending
Saturday, Sept. f, 1S!M, the same be
ing based upon reports received from
117 correspondents, which is as follows :
Weather. Warm, cloudless weather,
with a smoky atmosphere has prevailed
during the week, with fog at night
and early morning, the latter more
especially near to the coast. No rain
Crops. Harvesting of cereals is
about over, except the late sown oats
and barley. The yield of cereals has
been unusally large. The quality is
good, fully an average or more, except
in localities where some smut, prevails,
to no great, extent however in any
place. Clackamas county reports
wheat yields of It!) bushels per acre
and Yamhill county 'M mishels in
large fields. Most counties have largo
yields in well cultivated fields of from
!15 to If) Inishels per acre. Mop pick
ing is in progress. The hop lice have
done considerable damage. In some
yards fully f0 per cent of tho hops
have mould on them, in other yaids
no mould or lice are to be seen. The
hop crop of Oiegon was estimated to
bo 30,000 bales, but since the picking
has commenced it has been found
that based on above estimate there will
not bo over 20,000 bales, at tho most
of first grade hops. Fruit of all kinds
and melons are very plentiful; can
neries and fruit dryers are working to
their full capacity.
Weather. Warm weather with a
smoky attnosphoto has prevailed. No
rain has fallen. The latter part of tho
week has been cooler.
Crops. Harvesting operations aro
well along. In many sections most of
the cereals have been cut and much
of it threshed. In Umatilla county,
especially, harvesting and threshing
aro nearly over. In Union county
harvesting is in lull operation. In
this county considerable smut exists.
In Sherman and Wasco counties,
while the yield has been good, especi
ally in the former, yet in many sec
tions of both counties tho berry is
shrunken. Morrow county has as
good or a bettor crop of cereals than
she ever had before. Smut exists in
parts of Grant county, though tho
yield is very good. In Gilliam county
most of tho wheat is in sack and smut
in the wheat is to be found in parts of
this county also, Tho fruit is ripening
nicely and is very plentiful. Tho com
is doing very well ; some of it is rather
small, though on the whole it is a good

News of the Week From Our Regular Cor
respondent at tho Capital.
WxsiiiNuTON. August 2S, 1MI1.
Is Col. Polk, the president of tho
national farmer'.i alliance, to light a
duel? A telegram from North Caro
lina, where ho now is, sa that he
will challenge one or both of the edi
tors of the Raleigh Now and Observer
for having in that papei made person
al attacks upon him in connection
' with his war record. This telegram
aroused the greatest interest bote, tho
alliance headquarters, wln re Col. Polk
, has bis office, when in Washington,
has been beseiged by newspaper men
t and otheis in search of information,
, but none of the alliance ollieials seem
i to know anything about it, or at least,
, nothing that they are disposed to
j make public, although one of them
said that he did not believe that Col.
Polk would send a challenge under
any circumstances, but he might accept
iiiiii if it were sent to him.
In spite of the fact that everybody
was satisfied from the first day that
Senator Edmund's resignation was
made public that Secretary Proctor
would be hi successor in the senate
the formal announcement of that fact
by the governor of Vermont has been
the principle political topic under dis
cussion this week. This was probably
largely owing to tho belief that there
may be at least one, possibly two
other vacancies in tlie cabinet about
the time congress meets, and thero
is nothing so interesting to politicians
as vacancies or prospective vacancies
in the cabinet; I hoy open up such a
long vista of possibilities and enable
so many obscure men to get them
selves mentioned in the newspapers,
to say nothing of the boon they aro to
the working newspaper man in en
abling him to pay many debts to poli
ticians by mentioning tho fact, which
would otherwise never be known,
that "Strong pressure is being brought
to bear upon the president for tho
appointment of Hon. John Blank to
one of the vacancies in the cabinet."
Your correspondent, having no debts of
this kind, will not mention tho names
of tho scoro of political nobodies who
are getting themselves talked about as
probable successors to Secretary Proc
tor now, because they know very well
that their names will never bo consid
ered at the While House after tho
president returns. When Mr. Harri
son was making up his cabinet he
tendoied tho secretaryship of war to
ox-Gov. Cheney, of New Hainpshiio,
ho declined it for personal reasons.
That leaked out some time ago, and is
probably all the real basis there is for
the talk about his now entering the
cabinet which is going around. It is
said, and it is plausible if not true,
that Mr. Harrison would bo very
much pleased to have Gen. Alger join
his cabinet. It would unquestionably
bo good politics for Mr. Harrison to
secure Gen. Alger as a member of his
ollicial family, and it may bo true, as
said by some, that he has tendered
him tho position, but although possible,
those who should enjoy Gen. Algor's
confidence do not regard it as at all
probable that ho would accept, as ho
is known to indulge u higher ambition.
Tho statement of Itcprchcntutivo
Crisp that "tho speakership contest is
to bo a friendly fight with soft gloves,
and for points only", must have been
intended for sarcasm ; it certainly was
if Mr. Crisp is awaro of tho vicious
attacks which aro being mado upon
him by tho friends of one of tho other
candidates. These pooplo aro certainly
not treating Mr. Crisp's candidacy in a
friendly manner; thoy aro constantly
saying bad things about him and hint
ing that thoy know much worse
things which may bo told later on.
With tho representatives supposed to
bo under tho influence of tho liquor
men they harp on thy fact that Mr.
Crisp was ono of tho five domocrats
that voted for tho original package hill
in tho house; to those representatives
supposed to bo specially hankering
after committeo chairmanships they
go lamenting tho rumor that .Mr.
Crisp had promised away ovury niuglo
ohuirmuiibhip, and to thono representa
tives known to luivo a special horror
of lobbyists and thuir mutlioiU thoy
nay something like ibis: "Everybody
know that Judge (JrUp U ptirtonully
mi honorable mini, uml it In dimply to
ho itigfiittud (hut llm lubbyUu und
Diiliumur nlmiild Imvu till uim upon
him as their candidate for speaker, as
it will prevent his getting votes which
otherwise would have gone to him."
If those be the kind of blows struck in
a "friendly fight", most people will
prefer to engage in a kill-if-vou-can
fight, wheie brass knuckles, bowio
knives and revolvers are used bv the

ADAM FOKEPAUGII SHOWS
Tho Oldest, ntcheat, Largest Exhibition
lu tho World.
All unknown to the general public
and us quietly as possible, tho greatest
ciieus work ever done in this countty
was accomplished during the winter
months just passed. Of course this
statement obviously implies that an
immense amount of money, energy
and enterptise were put forth. The
old and well-known Adam Forepaugh
Shows were being newly equipped for
this their twenty-eighth consecutive
season, and the equipment required
tho services of many agents, old trans
atlantic voyagers, who have many
years penetrated spots but little in
habited by man, to find wonders for
the menagerie and museum depart
ments of the great shows, or have
mingled with fashionable throngs at
the first amusement places of the gay
capitals of the world, seeking for su
perior artists in all the various branch
es of the circus business, consequently
when the great shows will exhibit, at
La Grande on Thursday, September
17th. with their three great circuses,
double menagerie, gieat Roman hippo
drome, reinforced Wild West, mam
moth museums, famous foreign fea
tures, and trained wild beast shows,
with all their marvelous aerialists
headed by the renowned Hanlon-Volt-ors,
and numerous other attractions.
All will have an opportunity to seo
tho iniinonso city of tents fourteen
vast pavilions in which these things
are exhibited, which require four great
trains consisting of fifty cars each
sixty feet in length to haul here.
When it is, moreover, considered that
$.'1,000,000 are invested in thin great
work, ami that it requires $,()() to
pay its daily expenses, it will prove a
wonderful sight. Twelve hundred
men and horses, more than 200 wild
beasts, as many foreign and american
artists, and nearly a like number of
Wild West people, and all tho other
things too numerous to mention of
these great shows, will make it almost
impossible to slay away.
