The statistics showing that the
cost of producing the Illinois com
crop of 18S9 was $03,000,000, while its
market value is only 58,000,000, are
amply estimates, and so may bo con
siderably out of the way; but there
can bo no doubt that the raising of
corn has become unprofitable in
Illinois and all the other western
buildings. If we do not get these
aids now, wo will not be obliged to
wait many years. The tremendous
importance and growth of this section
will absolutely compel them, while
our representation will be greater in
congress and our influence thus increased.

of townsites in Alaska has been passed
by congress. It provides for the pur
chase of 1G0 acres of land as nearly
as practicable in a square form for
townsites at $2.50 per acre. They
zaay then be divided into town lots
and incorporated as a town, either
personally or in connection with any
incorporation which may bo formed.
The bill was amended to exclude
lands occupied by natives, mineral

If attracting unusual attention
speaks well for the new states, they
certainly ought toachieve a creditable
reputation. But we fear for the con

North Dakota, runaway legislators in
Montana, a nondescript assembly in
Washington, and a crowd of land
boomers in South Dakota, surely con
ditions have combined to give these
states a questionable notoriety. The'

rather they are, as in the case of the

which they can never make up. It is

There is nothing new in the situa
tion. Packers and dealers still are
discussing the prospect for the new
season, and there seems to be some
division of opinion among them. The
majority hold to the belief that the
season promises well for the industry
in all its branches; but there are a few
who make the prediction that the
new cannery companies and their
fishermen will crowd tho streams to
tho damage of the industry generally,
if it does not precipitate troubles
among the fishermen such as were ex
perienced some seasons since on the
Columbia river, when one man fished
and the other held the rifle. It wonld
be better for the packers to arrange
these matters beforehand if possible
It is not right to arm men and send
them out with instructions to protect
themselves. It is more than likely
that there will be conflicts between
the old fishermen and the new on all
streams. There will not bo fish
enough for all, and the old timers,
quite naturally perhaps, will put in
some claims of right to fish tho
streams. The new comers will claim
that the birds in the air and the fLsh
in the sea, in a state of nature, belong
to those who can take them. The old
timers will retort with, why don't you
take them? This will be the signal
for a row. Somebody will get hurt
and nobody will get any salmon.
To make a long story short, there
will not be a large supply of salmon
on any of the streams this coming sea
son if experience is any guide. Tho
Sacramento and Columbia rivers are
making lighter and lighter packs every
year. Alaska is the main dependence
of the packers. Many of the new com
panies will pack in Alaska, but in all
probability one season in tho frozen
north will knock all tho enterprise and
ambition out of them, and they will
leave salmon packing to the companies
that have made a business of it for
years. Salmon Talk in San Fran

including five and ten dollar notes.
When papa Newton got his first
