The Port Townsend Chamber of Com
merce still keeps up its record in the

latest was presented by Senator Allen
the other day, asking that all matters
arising in Alaska which come under the
jurisdiction of the United States Court
may be referred hereafter to the Wash
ington courts instead of Oregon, as at
present. If there has been anything
that the Port Townsend Chamber of
Commerce has not petitioned for, it is
something it has not heard of.
The Superintendent of Census has is
sued the following statistics of cereal
production in Oregon and Washington
for the census year ended May 31, 1890 :
Oregon Wheat, 661,270 acres, 9,298,224
bushels; oat, 218,7i6 acres, 6,948,64
bushels; barley, 37.8J3 acres, 876,063
bushels. Washington Wheat 372,658
acres, 6,345,429 bushels; oats, 65,08"
acres, 2 273,182 bushels; barley, 51, 661
acres, 1,269,140 bushels. In addition to
the foregoing were corn, rye and buck
wheat, aggregating 19,196 acres in Ore
gon and 11,373 acres in Washington. In
Oregon the total area in cereals has in
creased since 1879 from 632,871 acres to
829,005 acres, not including at least 27,
000 acres, mainly in Wasco and Gilliam
counties, on which the crops were either
destroyed by drouth or cut for forage.
In Washington the total area devoted to
cereals aggregated 500,671 acres, as com
pared with 136,937 acres at tenth census.
The addition to the acreage in wheat
represented 80.03 per cent, oi the total
Contrary to general expectation, the
Geary Chinese bill went through the
House under a suspension of the rules.
Senator Dolph was asked if he would
give any expression npon the subject,
and declined to do so. lie said the bin
as amended would now come to the Sen
ate, and would probably go to the Com.
lttee on foreign Keiations. lieary
says that the bill must go through the
Senate, or every man who lives in a
State where labor is employed will lose
tbe support of the laboring men. The
bill is certainly severe in its methods,
and is believed by some to be unconsti
rational and in violation ot an treaty
rights. This matter will be taken into
consideration by the Committee on For
eign. Anaira, and perhaps a compromise
measure may be reached which will keep
out the great bulk of Chinese and yet
work no violation ot international law,
The Senate will no doubt be more con
servative than the House in considera
tion of this matter, for as a matter of
fact the great body of the House never
had an opportunity either to discuss or
understand this Chinese bill.
Another attempt is being made to set
tle the vexed Puyallup Indian reserva
tion question. Senator Dawes has in
troduced a bill providing an appropria
tion of $25,000 to pay the expenses of
commission, wnicn snail determine the
rights of individual Indians who have
taken allotments and also secure a list
of unallotted lands within the reserva
tion. This commission is to make a plat
ef all lands, appraise the value of each
tract and make a report to the Secretary
of the Interior. If the report is ap
proved, then the commission is to be
authorized to sell the lands at auction
owned by the Indians, and also the lands
which have not been allotted adjacent
to the city of Tacoma are to be laid out
into lota and sold, the money to be de
posited in the United States Treasury
and draw interest for the Indians at the
rate of 5 per annum. This would prob
ably dispose of the Indians' allotted
lands on the reservation, but there is yet
a question to be considered, j his is re
garding the contract made by Indians
who hold lands in severalty with other
persons, and who claim that they have
a distinct right on the lands, and that
their contracts made with the Indians
shall be first considered. It is evident
that in anything done with the Puyallup
lands considerable litigation will follow.
