OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
RIOTS AT VLADIVOSTOK.
Plan To Be Tried With Largest Amer
ican Fleet Ever Assembled.
Washington, July 7. Plana for ex
tensive maneuvers of the Nortth At
lantic fleet are being matured by the
general navy board, in conjunction
with Bear Admiral Evans, command
ing the fleet. Admiral Dewey, presi
dent of the board, has sent Admiral
Evans a copy of the program ot the
maneuvers of the French fleet in the
Alellterranean. These maneuvers are
under command of Admiral Foamier,
who not long ago visited the United
States and was a guest of soma of our
naval officers. Before antumn, Ad
miral Evans will bave a fleet ot 10
battleships, which will be the largest
fleet ot effective vessels ever assembled
at one time by the United States.
A new feature is to bo introduced Jn
the maneuvers this summer, and the
ships are to practice evolutions without
signals in order to meet emergencies in
battle, when owing to smoke or when
signal apparatus has been shot away,
signals rannot longer bo given. While
it la regarded as somewhat hazardous
to maneuver big battleships without
signals, it is thought necessary to bave
the officers familiar with this duty in
case tbfy are engaged In actual warfare
at some time in the future and a situa
tion should arise necessitating the
abandonment ot signals.
To Make Brigade Posts.
Washington, July 7. Secretary Taft
lias determined to make a trip of in
spection westward next October to Fort
Riley and Fort Leavenworth, as well
as to Fort Bam Houston, at San An
tonio. Ills purpose is to examine these
places, with particular reference to the
execution of the plans ot the general
staff for the creation of large briagde
posts at these points. He will likely
also approve of such potts at American
Lake, Wash.; Fort D. A. Russell,
Wyo.; Chickamauga, and some post in
the Middle states.

The deficit last year was $24,000,000
in round numbers. This Included $0,

round numbers, $18,000,000. This
year the surplus is $25,000,000, and in
addition tbero has been paid on tho
Panama canal $18,000,000. The actual
exceta of revenues over ordinary ex

difference between $43,000,000 cice-s
and $18,000,000 deficit on ordinary ex

San Francisco, July 2. -According to
the budgets submitted to the relief
commission today, it will cost consider
ably more than $1,000,000 a year to

RECORD HOP CROP.
Oregon Yield for 1000 Promises to
Exceed Even That of IOOG.
Salem Almost IncriHllblo though it
may seem, well posted Oregon hop
growers expect a crop of 130,000 bales
in this stato this season. This is an
expectation basod upon tho present con
dition of tho yards. Soma men who
aro both dealers and growors say they
will not bo surprised at a crop of 140,
000 bales, and will bo disappointed if
it goes under 130,000, with continued
favorable- weather conditions. Tho
largest crop herotoforo gathered was
that ot last year, aggregating 108,000
All tho yards are now in first class
condition. Many old vauls are prom
ising a yield 25 to 60 per cent greater
than last year. In addition to this
there aro many young yards which pro
duced light crops ot baby hops last year
that will yield full crops for the first
time this year. The great question In
tho minds ot growers Is whether all the
hops can bo gathered. Labor Is scarce
and a much larger number of people,
than usnal will be required to pick tho
Heavy showers in this vicinity have
Injured clover hay to some extent, and
cracked Royal Anne cherries slightly.
The rain, howevor, will benefit grain,
potatoes and other crops.
Harney Sawmills Busy.
Burns The sawmill men ot this
county bave all started their mill to
running on full lime and the outlook Is
better than for a number of years, as
there Is a large large number of new
settlers locating in this county, and
then the sawmills near Harney City
ship most of their product to Malheur
county. There was not much demand
for lumW last year, and most of tho
mills closed down earlv in the season.
Lumber has increased in value from
$10 to $12 per thousand for rough lum
ber, and dressed lumber has increased
about the same per cent.
Springfield May Oe I ermtnus.
Eugene The Willamette Valley
company has applied to the city of
Springfield for a franchise tor the con
struction ot an electric railway on cer
tain streets entering the city from the
north. For a long time the company
has been attempting to secure a fran
chise for entrance into Eugene, Intend
ing to extend the line now under con
struction between Salem and Portland
south to Eugene, but as the city coun

the company threatens to build around
Trouble In Harney County.
Salem There is trouble brewing
down in IIarne county over irrigation
matters. The Burns board of trade
has asked the state land board to send
the state engineer over to make an in

some of the companies holding lands
under the Carey act in" the vicinity of
Harney to proceed to develop it or va

Ask State for Appropriation.
Ontario Henry Blackmail, recently
appointed by Governor Chamberlain as
one of tno commissioners of Oregon to
the Jamestown exposition, representing
Eastern Oregon, Is in Ontario gathering
statistics and exhibits for tho world's
fair in 1007, so as to make a report at
tho next leglslaturo with the view of
having a liberal appropriation made.
Mr. Blackman Mates that the commer
cial bodies of Portland are back of tho
movement and requested the governor
to make the appointments. Oregon Is
the first state on the Pacific coast to
come to the front for the purpose of ad
vertising her resources.
Dr. Sherman Cannot Attend.
Oregon City Secretary Cross, of the
Willamette Valley Chautauqua associa
tion, has received a telegram from Dr.
W. 0. 8horman, of Sacramento, an
nouncing his serious Illness at his
home, which will prevent him from
keeping his engagement at this year's
assembly. Dr. Sherman has for a
numter of years been instructor of the
Bible claia and his services have been
invaluable to the chautauqua meetings.
Secretary Cross Is planning to substi
tute a round table for this interesting
feature of the chautauqua program.

Company Increases Capital.
New York, July 2. At a special
meeting of the Hanover Fire Insurance
company today it was voted to Increase
the capital stock of tho company from
$500,000 to $1,000,000. This action

sustained by the company in the San
Francisco fire. The new stock will
be Issued at $160 a share, thus adding
$760,000 to the company's resources.!
Outlook In Lane County.
Eugene Sunshine has Improved all
crops in Lane county. An average
cherry yield is on the market: straw
berries are practically harvested; rasp
berries and blark caps are ripening and
are prolific. Prunes, apples and pears
are in the best of condition. Hay and
grain are very heavy, while bopa are
well advanced, promising a big yield.
Pasture Is good.
Oregon Appropriations Cut.
Washington The senate committee
cut down tho b'lildlng appropriations
in reporting on the omnibus bill so that
Baker City gets only $65,000, Eugene
$50,000, and Salem $15,000 to com
plete lis grounds.
Wheat Crop Looks Good.
Pendleton Umatilla county will
bave one of its best wheat crops this
year In spite of threatening early por
tents. The moist weather of the past
four weeks has lifted tho crops out of
the ground until they will be as good
In straw as usual, whereas it was pre
dicted that in somo places a harvester
could hardly got below the heads, Now
tho warm weather has begun to harden
the young grain and cause tne maturing
beads to fill out and increase In weight.
