The wheat crop of the North
west for the year is estimated at
4.",O00,OO0 to 50,000,000 busbels.
Where harvest has commenced,
theyiekl is much better than
was anticipated and while acre
ape is greater than a year ago,
the increase in production is
more largely due to increased
yield." According to the best
statistical knowledge obtain
able, the crop last year was 35,

estimate the crop this 3'ear i9

Mr. Kay affects surprise that
Graham should at this time
have the temerity to oppose him.
He expected the support of the
entire Marion delegation. The
fact is everybody but Tom knew
all along that he would not get
' the undivided support of the
Marion delegation. The Marion
delegation never did stand to
gether. It perhaps never will.
According to some of the sen
timents expressed by some of
the leaders of the Prohibition
people, there will be an effort
made to have all the counties in
Oregon vote on the local-option
plan in November. I. H. Amos
chairman f6r the State Prohi
bition Committee says that it is
not the sentiment of the Prohi
bitionists of the state to consent
to omit any precinct from vote
by agreement with the opposing
parties, and that it would be
likely to be a vote of all sections
at the same time.
Tom Kay should try a dose
of whale oil soap and quassia
chips on J. G Graham. That
might bring him into line.
