.JULY 28, 1SS7
In the city of New York it is esti
mated that not less than S250,000 a
day is spent for beverages; 1,500,000
in one week; $75,000,000 in a year.
Outside of the office of the New
York Sun, it seems to bo pretty gen
erally agreed, on the part of the Dem
ocratic newspapers and politicians,
that Grover Cleveland is to be the
Democratic candidate for the presi
dency in 1888-
It is noticed that ex-Governor St
John is making third party speeches
in Ohio, a Republican state, where
prohibition is not an issue, but keeps
clear of Texas, where the pending
movement may hurt the Democratic
The paper in the United States hav
ing the shortest name is the Au, a
German weekly published in Milwau
kee. That city also possesses the
paper with the longest title. It is
called Die Deutsche Amerikanische
Gewerbe und Industrie Zeitung:
The annual expenditures by Europe
upon military and naval purposes, ac
cording to a repent English publica
tion, amount to nearly $33,675,000,
000, while the total of the national
debts of Europe reaches the astound
ing amount of -$24,313,037,650.. On
this latter sum nearly $1,000,000,000 is
paid for interest
The Henry George labor party does
not mean to lose anything by failing
to claim enough. In New York city
its leaders assert that they have 75,000
voters enrolled on their books. They
even boast that at the next election in
November they will carry the
most of the assembly districts of New
York, and elect a majority of the board
The United States and Great Brit
ain last year produced nearly the
same amount of pig iron, the produc
tion here being 5,680,000 tons and in
Great Britain 6,800,000 tons. Great
Britain exported one-half it made,
only manufacturing 3,500,000 tons of
the crude pig into more valuable
forms of iron, while the United States
not only manufactured all its own
output, but nearly 600,000 tons in ad
dition. TmNew York Tribune sometimes
has a way of firing off its statements
before getting well loaded with its
charge. It says the use of silver is
not increasing anywhere except in the
United States, while the fact is that
the use of silver has increased in a
year about $35,000,000, and that the
use is so large that the coinage of
1886 exceeded the product of the
world's mines by about 21,000,000
worth. "What sense is there in saying
that its use is not increasing in India,
when her coinage last year was nearly
double that of 1885, though her silver
imports were nearly a full average?
The Tribune also says that the move-,
ment of gold to India and the east
has for several years been great and
in large commercial transactions that
coin is gradually coming into use in
place of silver. These assertions have
no other appropriate answer than flat
denial at every point, as the gold im
port of India is trivial, there is no
gold coin in circulation, and the trans
formation referred to is purely im
aginary. The United States is valued at
276,000,000 more than Great Britain,
the richest of all the nations of the
old world, notwithstanding the for
mer is only a little over 100 years old.
In 1880 her wealth was estimated at
43,642,000,000, more than sufficient
to-buy the empires of Kussia and Tur
key, the kingdoms of Sweden, Nor
way, Denmark and Italy, together
with Australia, South Africa and all
of South America, including lands,
mines, cities, factories, palaces, ships,
flocks, herds, jewels, moneys, sceptres,
diamonds and the homes of 177,000,
000 people. In size, also, our republic
takes first rank. Eighteen states as
large as Spain, 31 states .as large as
Italy, or CO states as .large as England
and Wales, would be necessary to
form a territory as large as that of the
United States. If we should take five
of the six first-class powers of Europe
Great Britain and Ireland, Ger
many, France, Austria and Italy and
add to them Spain, Portugal, Switzer
land, Denmark and Greece, and com
bine all into one mighty empire, the
piece of territory thus formed could
be laid down time after time in the
United States east of the Bocky
Indlgesion or Constipation.
A few HAMBURG FIGS are all
that is necessary for the cure of the
severest cases of indigestion or con
stipation, and one taken occasionly

affections. 25 cents. At all drug

THE PRICE OF HAY.
The ruling price of hay here at
present is higher than is usual in Or
egon at this time of year. The unus
ually high water has shut off the
supply from bottom lands along the
uoiumoia, irom wuicu a mre cu
tity is usually received, and though
there is considerable loose hay being
hauled into town from the surround
ine country, the amount of baled hay
being received is not sufficient to
bring the price down. There is
plenty of hay in the country, how
ever. Several carloads of wheat hay
have been received from Ikledford, and
if favorable rates can be obtained a
large quantity will be shipped in
irom tnac secnon. xnere is also
plenty of good hay up in Union coun
ty. A man from there waa yesterday
trying to make a contract to send 800
tons here. r Only a few days ago deal
ers were paying a cent a pound for
baled timothy, but it has come down
a little, and they are now selling it
for from $18 to $20. "Wheat hay sells
for from $16 to $18 per ton.
This is very good for the farmers,
but it is rough on teamsters, and
they will be glad to see the price
come down. Oregonian. 27.
