Crime Decreasing in Oregon
Declares Warden of State Pen
Salem "Statistics of this institu
tion during the current calander year
warrant the belief that crime in Ore
gon is Bteadily . decreasing, and that
the number of commitments to the
penitentiary may be materially re
duced during the next few years,"
says Warden John W. Minto in his bi
ennial report to the state board of con
trol.
Speaking of the reformation of pris
oners, the report Bays that 75 per cent
of them can be reformed and the re
maining 25 per cent "are criminals by
nature, training and inclination, and
that "their entire lives will be spent
either in some penal institution or
dodging one." The 75 per cent sus
ceptible to reformation are "unfortun
ate victims of passion, financial diffi
culties, careless raising, unfavorable
environment and weakness in the face
of temptation," says the report. The
segregation of prisoners is recommended.
; Car License Cards Issued.
Salem To the 40,000 motor vehicle
owners and chauffeurs of Oregon, Sec
retary of State Olcott has mailed ap
plication blanks for registration for
the year 1917. A transmittal card
with the horsepower of each machine,
figured according to the Oregon law,
was inclosed with each application,
and also a notice requesting owners
not to ask for the assignment of any
certain number.
The attempt to accommodate those
who have wished for the same number
each year, as well as those asking for
specified numbers, has proven unsatis
factory and impracticable," said Sec
retary Olcott, "and therefore requests
of this nature will receive no atten
tion this year."
Apples Wait for Cars.

Wednesday, officials of the Apple
growers' association declare that the
apple market situation is being seri
ously affected by the car shortage.
The local storage terminals are fast
filling up with apples, and unless cars
are available soon growers will prob
ably be filling the basements of local
business houses with boxed apples.
"It has been reported that refriger
ator cars have been used to transport
wheat. We are investigating to find
whether or not this is true," said Wil
mer Sieg, salesmanager of the apple-
growers.

wheat are coming along strong, but
are being turned down, as there is no
immediate prospect of moving the
wheat that has already been bought,
It is estimatd that not over 20 per

posed of close to 80 per cent, lhe
remaining 60 per cent has been Bold to
Eastern millers or to foreigners, but it
is still here.
Farmers are Bhowing a disposition

Oats were unchanged and feed barley
was 50 cents lower.

which the Northwestern crop is mov

sales were 95.000 bushels of wheat,
400 tons of oats, 100 tons of barley

Fall Fishing Not Good.
Marshfield The fall fishing season
has been admittedly short in all the
Coast section about here, and several
canneries have released thoir Chinese
crews, owing to a lack of business.
The silverside run is not half what it
commonly is, since there were no rains
to flush the streams and invite the fish
from the ocean. The Tenmile Lake
and Creek run has not occurred as yet,
and silversides are expected to fill Ten
mile Creek when the rains commence.
The catch there is sometimes as high
as 3000 daily.

Potato Yield Is Heavy.
Aurora Potatoes and hops have
come in so plentiful for storage that
practically every stontroom in town is
full, while the difficult)' in obtaining
cars renders it almost; impossible for
buyers to make further purchases ex
cept for future delivery. The yield
and quality of the potatoes in this sec
tion is better than for years and li tne
car shortage does not interfere with
the sale of them, there it every pros

Strong Turkey Market Predicted.
Portland A strong market for
Thanksgiving turkey is predicted by T.
G. Farrell, who says :
" We believe that there is an aver
age crop of turkeys tnis xaii, not a
verv big one. but a good average crop,
Conditions are pretty good, men are
pretty well employed, and prices on all Age-Heraiu
commoditieB are high, we, tnereiore,
predict that there will be a very tine
price for fancy dressed turkeys, geese
and ducks for the Thanksgiving traue,
There have been a few marketed al
ready for early shipment to remote
points, Alaska,- Manila, etc. iney
were srood and sold well, 2727Jc.
We believe that fine goods on the
Thanksirivine market will bring thl
much and perhaps more.
"There will be a good demand also
for fine dresesd geese and ducks.
Chickens on the Thanksgiving market
are generally poor sellers; they will
be wanted later.
