News of the Week From Our Regular Cor
rcspomteut at the Capital.
Washington, septemlior is. ll.
Enrrou Okkoo.v Scoi r:
Mr. Harrison has been able to do
vote very little time to private mnt'ci
ences since his return to the Whiin
House, us his time has been ully
taken up with public caller! of ptomi
nenee, many of whom have taken
advantage of a live minute dmt, with
a score of men in the room, to ny a
good wotd for a friend who is an appl'
cant for some one of the numerous
desirable places now at Mr. Harrison'-,
disposal. It is said that he iiitim.it-d
to a gentleman that he woult not be
gin the consideration of the new U. S.
judicial appointments until about the
time congress meets, owing to the
moro pres.-ing nature of other btt.-ine...
The court nf claim, meets forth
fall session this day week, and it
would be very desirable to have the
vacancy u,ion its bench tilled lieloto
that time It is u position that is
much .-ought after, as the duties .ire
not arduous and the salary is Jpli.OOO
per year and the tenure lor life. All
the sessions of this court are hold here
in a commodious room on the giotind
floor of the dopaitmeitt of justice.
Somo time ago when Mr. Hairison
held that much talked of conference
with Senator Quay ho partially omui
ised tho position, not then vacant, to a
protege of the senator, but it is now
stated that owing to Mr. Quay having
since then openly pronounced against
Mr. Harrison's nomination that bin
friend will not get tho appointment.
Tho two vacancies upon the inter
state commerce commission .tie said
to bo causing the commission consider
able embarrassment and inconven
ience, and a hint has been given to
Mr. Harrison that early appointments
will greatly please the other cnniniis
sioners. It is regarded as almost
certain that, the demociat to be ap
pointed will bo from the smith,
and ex-Uepresenutivo Clements, of
Georgia, is believed to sland the best
chanco of being the fortunate man.
The republican will, it is thought, bo
taken from the west, but there are
many applicants from other sections.
Ex-Senator Spooner's name had been
mentioned for tho appointment, but a
cluc personal friend of his, in Wash
ington this week, is authority for tho
statement that Mr. Spoonur will ac
cept no federal ollice as ho expects to
bo the republican candidate for gov
ernor of Wisconsin noxt year.
Mr. Harrison also has two vacancies
to fill in his cabinet, as the attorney
enoral was forced to confess to an
Indiana republican who asked his
assistance in getting a seat upon tho
bench of the new circuit court, that
ho had himself accepted the tender of
a seat theron which settled tho other
Indiana man's aspirations most ell'eut
uully. This has not been oflicially
announced and probably will not bo
until the attorney goneral's resigna
tion is handed in, and when that will
bo will dopond entirely on the will
and convenience of Mr. Harrison.
Secretary Foster made glad tho
hearts of Sir Henry Wood, Mr. James
Dredge and Herr Wermuth, tho
world's fair high commissioners of
Germany and Great Britain, by assur
ing thoin that all tariff restrictions up
on importations of foreign goods for
exhibition at tho fair would bo removed
cither by rulings of tho department or
by special acts of congress when if
can bo done in no other way. Thcso
gontloman aftorwardc called on Mr.
Harrison and told him how much tho
people of Germany and England aro
interested in tho coining world's fair.
Mr. Wanumaker regards his schomo
for an inspection of all tho post ofllces
in a county by tho postinastsr at tho
county soat as an assured success.
Ho has already received moro than
J100 replies to his circular letter, many
of thorn from democratic postmasters,
and in nearly every caso tho postmas
ter willingly agreed to do tho work
asked of him, indeed u number of
of them havo mudo the inspection and
submitted their rojorlH already.

Crop-Woatner Bulletin, No. 29.
The observer of the Oregon Weather
Bureau, of Portland, Oregon, lias is
sued the bulletin for the week ending
Saturday, Sept. 215, 1801, tho samo be
ing based upon reports received from
M7 correspondents, which is as follows :
Weather. Tho fore part of tho week
wasi cloudy and rainy; the latter part
; cool, generally cloudless, with fog in
, the mornings. Light ftost was quito
general on tho morning of the. iKtrd.
j No damage is reported fiom it. This
' ik the first frost of the season. Smoko
j ha entirely disappeared from tho at
tuiisphete. Ciops. Harvesting of cereals is
over. There are a few small amounts
of wheat, and oats to thresh. There
was no appreciable damage done by
tint rains. Tho buckwheat crop of
Clackamas county is very good; small
portion of it were damaged by rain.
Hops are about all baled. Experi
ments show that sugar beets and
sorghum do very well in Washington
county. Tho rains softened tho earth
sufficiently to allow of plowing in
many counties. In portions of Linn
county the corn is not ripening woll.
In Douglass county the wheat was not
over an averago in quantity and qual
ity per aero; oats are, however, abovo
tho average. In Jackson county
grapes arc ripening anil wine making
will begin next week. In Curry coun
ty a 200 acre field of barley, oats and
wheat averaged HO, 51 and .'III bushels
per acre respectively. Koports indi
cate that every ono is woll satisfied
with tho result of tho harvest.
Weather. Tho foro part of tho weok
was cloudy, and occasional showers
fell; the latter part -vas generally
cloudless and cool, with frosts on tho
20th and 2,'inl, the first general frosts
of tho season.
Crops. Harvesting and threshing
is generally over, except in Union,
Wallowa and Baker countios whero
threshing is being finished up. Crops
have been secured without any dam
ago from climatic conditions, as is tho
rule. Largo yields are reported from
cvory county, varying from 40 to (H)
bushels per acre. Tho avorago yield
varies from 15 bushels por aero in
somo localities, to IH) and 10 bushels
per aero in othors. In Union county,
for example, ono field of 000 acres
averaged a fraction over 40 bushels
per aero. Tho corn in Umatilla coun
ty is unusually good. Tho fruit along
tho Snako river was novor so good and
plentiful. In Wasco, Umatilla and
Union counties tho orchards are tilled
with fruit, and tho smaller orchards of
of tho other counties havo done re
markably woll. Tho harvest has been
ono of plenty, and tho quality of
cereals and fruit a good avorago.
B. S. l'AGUE,
Obsorvor, U. S. Weathor Bureau.
To read tho news from Oklahoma,
one would think that tho Union was
full of mon eager to engago in tho till
ing of tho soil. Thousands of ostensi
ble settlers, vrhito and black, aro
encamped on tho borders of tho res
ervations which aro about to bo
opened to occupation ; and when tho
embargo is raised at tho signal from
Washington, tliey will pour over and
tako possession of tho Holds which lio
waiting their coming. Deeds of vio
lenco aro already reported from among
them, so great is their excitoment, and
tlioy aro armed with shotguns and
riiles which It is feared they will use
freely to sottlo their disputes as their
contests reach their consummation.
Do those mon really want to bocomo
farmer? Aro they sincerely oeiml
with an ii"utlublo yearning to drivo
tho plow itorom tho rich pruirloH, to
overturn tho oll and to sow and reap

this is true, it is cei tainly very curious.
In Now England, close to largo cities,
farming land can bo had for nominal
prices, and in Minnesota there aro
thousands and thousands of acres
which have never homo a crop, ami
which promise a handsome return to
him who 1ms the energy and courage
to cultivate them. In the states west,
of us arc quarter sections after quarter
sections which wcro taken from the
j government by men masquerading us
j actual settlors in tho years gmie by,
j lying as they did when the Indians
owned them, except for the urim men
tation which a foreclosed nmrlgago
affords. If there aro so many tillers
of the soil out of a job, why do they
not take up these districts, which cm
bo had without tho um of either a
shotgun or a rille? The reason i- tbat
they mean work, self-denial and pi
tience. It is not for these things ih.u
the boomer is looking. He does not
want, a farm to till. He wants a farm
to sell. His tools are not. th" plow
and threshing machine, but the mini
gage and promissory note. The host
encamped in Oklahoma is not a colony
eager to produce. It is a horde of
speculators, ready to destroy. St.
I gavo you ono batch of notes and
thought I would wait for Minerva Ann,
but alio failed to como as regularly as
sho usually did with her epitome of
news, so hero I como again.
Harvest in full blast.
