September II, lsp. Mrs. Kutie Spears and Miss Lottio Rover are visiting relatives in our set tlement. lohn Parker, of llarnoy valley, is here on u visit to his brother, Nathan iel Parker. J. 11. Sams is now hauling lumber and will soon erect, u commodious dwelling on his homestead. I Mr. .lames II. IUuiek is building I a line residence on the farm ho bought J I of Albeit Wright, .lames is preparing for solid comfort in his old days. The thresher of Etnele and Wright Rros. and tlie thresher of Harsin and sons are both doing excellent woik and seem to have all they can do. Dunham Wright has a huge amount of fine fall and winter apples no llys on them and also a fine lot of prunes which he will sell reasonable or tiudo for grain. Mrs. Molli Wilson, of Long valley, Idaho, is visiting her sister, Mrs. W D. Etnele. She it much pleased with this section anil will likelv make it her future home. It is rumored that J. W. Worley, Rill Duncan and W. E. Turner will soon petition our newly appointed and worthy school superintendent to be set apart in a new district of their own. F. P. Duncan, of Raker City, has taken up headquarters at the springs He will soon don the simps and leath er hat-band and make a seareli for his band of horses, which seem to bo badly scattered. The youngsters of Park, Powder river and Rig creek congregated at tho springs on the llth inst. for a surprise and bad a very enjoyable time, and tripped the light fantastic until the little wee hours. Elisha Rrouer, late of Nebraska, has taken up his residence in our settle ment. We gladly welcome such men among us, as he is no old bach., but litis a family consisting of a wife and three grown daughters. Dunham Wright and his brother, L. M. Wright, lato of Missouri, have just returned from Raker county after a week's visit with relatives and friends. They report having seen some rough country. Tho next time they go they will take buloons for safety. W. D. Emelo has raised the boss crop of the settlement. He threshed 2,700 bushels, of which more than 1.G00 bushels is the vory best of wheat. David steps around, his hat a little to one side, and thumbs in the arm holes of his vest, and thinks wheat will reach a dollar without doubt. J. U. Hams excites his homo ones by picking up his ax, waltzing into his granary, striking right and left, tear ing down partitions and lotting tho golden grain fill and obstruct tho en tryways. My God, Shim, uro you crazy? Don't you see tho granary is breaking down and the wheat running under tho floor? That is tho way Big creek granaries aro imposod upon if it is an oil' year. Our old timers say look out for ft hard winter. Wood rats and bear aro thick in tho settlement. It. M. Dun can and Win. D. Parker both killed u fine specimen of tho bruin family this week almost right in their door yards, and Mrs. Dunham Wright has had more than 100 pounds of dried plums carried ofl'by tho wood rats in the last three nights. Sho lias declared war and has sent to town for steel traps and cartridges. W. J. Townly, superintendent of tho Sanger mino, passed tho springs the other day in a bran now road cart. He seemed to have as much troublo with tho unruly thing as uti average bronohoister does witn his bran now broncho. Olio wheel would turn on tho spindle while tho other remained stationary as if rivitvd.

Editoi! Oukuo.v Scot'T: Secretary Rusk has linished his vaca tion, paid Mr. Harrison a combined j social and business visit, and is now settled at his desk in the agricultural j department for the 'season. Ho is greatly inteuMed in the government inspection of dressed meals authorized by an act i f the last eongioss, which he was instrumental in pushing through. While he was away the sccretuiy organized a pork inspection station at Milwaukee and he has appli cations for stations liom Kansas City and Omaha. Ho says of the new law: "The plan of beef and pork inspection which has been iiiaugtiiated in the west, is proving a great success. ! Reef is thoioughly inspected at Chi j cago by the department, a post-mor-i tern, as it were, being held on each luminal, and at. the same place the arrangements for inspection have been so thoroughly systomizetl that tho shippers will be prepared to send abroad 1,200 hogs a dav as soon as the rcsti iolions on American pork aro re moved by Germany, which I have reason to know will be soon." Tho secretary said he had no further in formation concerning the recent rain producing experiments of Prof. Dyren forth than had already appeared in the newspapers. The rain-inaking experiments, although nominally un der the agricultural department, are in icality independent, being con ducted under a special act of congress which uppiopriated the money there for. Secietary Foster has extended in definitely tho time within which tho 1A per cent bonds, which ceased to draw inteiest Wednesday of this week, may be extended at 2 per cent. Not quite half of the .fo 1,000,000 which were outstanding when the oiler wan first made have been presented for extension, and it is saiil that Secretary Foster accuses tho National bank peo ple of having deceived him. A dele gation of them from New York were closeted with him yesterday, and it is supposed that these outstanding bonds weie under discussion. Opinion is divided as to whether theie is any truth in the rumor that Civil Service Commissioner Roosvelt bus resigned in a pet because Mr. Harrison did not act upon his recent recommendation and remove twenty odd Federal officials in Raltinioro for "pernicious political activity." Those who believe the rumor do so because they know that Mr. Roosvelt is wealthy and cares nothing for tho salary at tached to tho office, and that he is impulsive and seemingly fond of noto riety every report ho has ever made has always found its way into tho columns of the press, and there is more than u suspicion that Mr. Roose velt could easily explain how they got there. More than ouo of them has been printed in tho newspapers before it was received by Mr. Harrison. These things make it easy for some people to believo that Mr. Roosevelt has got into a "huff" and tendered his resignation to President Harrison. Tho other view of the matter puts it in a di Here tit light. Inasmuch as Mr, Harrison and the members of the cabinot directly concerned have been away from Washington almost contin ually since Mr. Koosovelt made his report Mr. Wanainaker says ho saw tho official copy of the report this week for tho first time it would bo manifestly unfair for Mr. Roosevelt to get mad because no action had been taken thereon. Ho will probably have cause to get mud in tho end un less popular belief is wrong, but ho has no cause at this time, Mr. Harrison has a good deal moro cause to be mud than Mr, Koosovelt has, on account of tho prematura publication of this very report, and it is more than probable that ho would very gladly accept Mr. Roosevelt's resignation if it could be hud without asking for it, and at least two members of tho cabinet have good reason to entertain tho sumo sort of feeling. President Polk, of tho national farmers' alliance, wheu usked whether he contemplated fighting a duel with tho North Ourolhm editor who has been ubiulng him and attacking his clmniotor, raplied; "Of course not. ThU whole silly duel story was started by u newspaper correspondent In North Carolina for the purpose of try ing to make a sensation." Owing to its bearing upon national politics the news thai Lieut. Governor Jones, of "he pays the freight" fame, may become an independent candi date for governor of New York, if Flower is nominated by the democrats, has excited the liveliest interest, hero and is being everywhere discussed. There are lots of 'democrats who do not hesitate to say that .Jones will do just right if he goes into an independ ent movement, as they consider that he was fairly entitled to tho nomina tion from the democrats. Republicans are of course jubilant over the news, and all of them aie wishing that it may turn out to be true. Secietary Tracy is now at (Jape May Point with Mr. Ilunison, and it is said that tho Gheradi-Walker scan dal, which has of late occupied so much space in the mottopolitun pa pers, is the subject upon which Mr. Harrison wanted to confer with tho secretary. .1. II. O. Crop-Woather Bulletin, No. 27. The observer of the Oiegou Weather Ruioau, of Portland, Oregon, has is sued the bulletin for the week ending Saturday, Kept. 12, IS01, tho same be ing bused upon reports received from 117 correspondents, which is as follows : WKSTHKN OKKUON. Weather. The temperature has been lower, yet above tho average. The utmospheao has been clearer of smoke. The weather has boon partly cloudy and local showers prevailed during the latter part of tho week. Crops. The showers have dono no material damage; they havo delayed some lato threshing and somewhat retarded hop picking in soino sections. The threshing of grain is practically over, only a few small lots yet remain to bo threshed. The wheat is being delivered to warehouses and elevators. Tho wheat product was never bettor. Tho berry is of first grade. Tho yield has been heavy, generally more than was anticipated. Large yields aro reported from every county. In WitHhington county, for example, ouo farm yielded 1(! bushels per acre, an other .11 bushels per acre. Smut is moro generally reported than usually, though it is not this year so very ex tensive. Spring wheat is more a fleet ed than ftdl wheat. Tho oat crop has been good but not as proportionally good as the wheat crop. Hop picking will be about finished next week un Icks the present rains should delay the pickers more than is rrow expected. Tho hops of Douglas county wero sup posed to bo free from lice and mould, but on picking, some yards aro found to bo badly damaged. No lico are ob servable in Josephine county. Jt is estimated that lice and mould havo damaged the hop crop to the oxtcnt of .f;j00,000. In Jackson and Josephino counties corn is ripe and of good quality and yield. Summer fallowing is in progress in many of the Willam ette valley counties. KA8TKKN OltKOON. Weather. A few showers have oc curred. Tho temperature has been cooler and about tho average Thoro has been less smoke in tho atmosphere. In the interior counties, on the higher elevations, frosts occurred. Crops. The showers did no dam age. Threshing is in progress in soino sections and in some counties it is nearly dono. In Wasco and in purta of Sherman county the wheat is moro shrunken than in the other counties. Yields of -10 bushels and upwards aro frequent in Morrow, Umatilla and Union counties. In tho latter county, in Uaker, Wallowa and interior coun ties, harvesting and threshing is well along. Keports indicate yields above tho average and abovo the expecta tions of tho farmers in every county. Tho wheat has bogun to movo to Bca bourd. Fruit continues plentiful. Grapes aro ripo in many localities. 1). S. PAGUE, Observer, U. S. Weather Duroau. ON TO PORTLAND! And tho North Pacific Industrial Ex poittlon.
