- Salem QrswAra to Ship SO Oars to

Salem A m ere ta the prone buai
mm of Um Willamette valley waa ush
ered in, when ttaa iodependaqt prone
graol, repreeenting about 2,000,000
pounds of fruit, practical It decided to
accept a proposition from tha Earl company, of 8an Francisco, for
about 80 aw loads of gram prone, to
"be picked and shipped to tha Eastern
marketa at onea. Tba priao offarad la
' 40 cents per ermte of 24 pound, tba
prauea to ba aeeaptod and paid for at
-thl rate before leaving Balem. The
rowan are told tba will also gat' ail
that the prunes bring in tba market
over and above this figure. Each ear
will hold 12 tons.
The Eastern Washington and Idaho
arop baa been sold green for several
year. Last year the output of that
action waa 1,600 tons. This year
. there ia a light crop, amounting to only
about 860 tons, and the dealers in green
fruits are seeking to make op tba de
ficiency by buying Oregon's Italian
prunes, which are admitted to be better
tban either the California or Washing
ton products. Last year tha growers
of Washington and Idaho realised 80
cents per crate of 24 pounds, or about
80 cants per bushel, for their green
prunes, which the Salem growers con
sider mora profitable tban selling the
dried fruit
Leading growers state that SO ears
can ba picked from the orchards of the
members of the pool at this time and
not decrease the output of dried fruit
to any extent, as the prunes that re
main will attain a much larger growth
than if none were removed. (

Klamatfa hi la Ranchers from the
Silver Lake section, in Northern Lak
county, are coming to Klamath Palls
for their supplies. Already several of
them have made tba trip of approxi
mately 176. miles and have returned
home with their wagons loaded with
poviaiona purchased from the merch
ants of this eity. The on drawback to
getting all of the trade of Northern
Lake county ia the poor condition -of
the roads. At this aeaaon of lbs year
it i possible to travel over most any
kind of a trail, bat with the first light
storms the roods become practically
impassible. Northern Lake county uT
anxious to do its trading hi thia eity
and tba merchants of that section are
willing to have their freight shipped
va Klamath instead of Shanlko, the
way it baa been coming. The distance
ia about tba same, but tba freight rate
ta lower. It is very likely tbet-stepa
will be taken by Klamath to
improve the roads to this isolated n
Man. so that the vast territory In 1
remote parts of both Klamath and Lake
counties will be enabled to get all their
supplies from Klamath Pallet -
Thia city ia so situated that the r
rival of the railroad ba made it the
natural distributing center for all
Southern Oregon. The only drawback
is tba road question. Klamath county
is now prepared to build good roads at
a reasonable cost, but the county ia too
lartre to construct burn ways in every
:tion In a abort time. The opening
up of the Lake county traffic to 'Kla
math Falls also make an opening for
Portland wholesalers, who will have to
bustle in order to meet the competition
of Sacramento and San Francisco. '

Rush Order Given for Railroad Con
struction on Deschutes. .
Tha Dalles, July 26. Atl yMtorday
four-boras teams, hauling wagons piled
high with railway camp equipment,
have trekked out of Tba Dalles, bound
for the Deschutes river. Beginning at
7 o'clock in tha morning 11 was not
until 6 to the afternoon that the last of
the 40 wagons shipped bare by Porter
fires., railroad contractors, who. are
supposed to be working for the Hill
railway, wended its way to tba south
east. Indications are almost conclusive
that Porter Bros., intend to establish
not two, but flv or sis camps, as if
preparing to cover the so tire ground of
the Oregon Trunk line surveys. They
themselves did not know, was the re
ply given by repreaantatWee of the
Oregon Trunk to inquiries as to tba
number of eampa and places of location.
Every indication la that men and
equipment were asenred hastily, and it
ia believed here to b tree that the
contractors only know bin general way
where the camps will be established.
Either a sodden decision to contest
with Harrlmaa for the trams of Can
bra) Oregon or tba sudden acquisition
of knowledge that the Oregon Trunk
would be down and out very soon unless
it began construction is believed to be
tba causa of the rushing of men into
the Deschutes country. -
Either alternative raise conjecture
as to whether Porter Bros, are playing
a hold-up game on Harriaan or are
hack by James J. Hill or actually in
tend to build railroad themselves.
French Aeronaut Makes the 22 Milea
fat 28 Minute.
Dover, July 26. Louis Bleriot, ' the-l
French aviator, accomplished the re
markable feat of flying across tba Eng
lish channel Saturday in 2S minute.
The distance from his starting point,
near Calais, to Dover, ts about 22
miles, and he therefore traveled at the
rate of nearly a mile a minute.
The aviator left the French shore at
4 :S0 and within a few minutes sighted
the whit cliff of the English coast.
Ha descended gracefully in the North
Fall meadow, behind Dover Castle, at
4:68 a.m.
M. Bleriot looked little the worse for
his hasardou trip, although bis foot
waa burned by petrol. This gave him
soma trouble, and be bad to be assisted
to an automobile which waa waiting.
He drove to the Lord Warden hospital,
where be was greeted enthusiastically.
A French torpedo boat destroyer
followed the aeroplane, bat so swift
was the speed of the machine that tha
destroyer was soon left far behind.
Although the start was made in calm
weather, the wind aoon rose and a
strong breese was blowing at the time
of the descent, making the perform
ance all the mora noteworthy.
. The French torpedo boat destroyer
arrived at Dover at 6 :60 with Bleriot's
wife and a party of friends on board.
By hi achievement Bleriot wins the
special prise of $6,000 offered by the
London Daily Mail.
Tribesmen Put Up Desperate Fight

Malaga, Spain, July 26. -The steam
er Meoorouin, with 80 wounded aboard,
arrived bar today from Melilla, where
the hospitals are overcrowded. Pas
sengers on the steamer declare that the
resident of Melilla are panic-stricken,
the succeaiss of the Moors giving rise

Tba Moorish tribes now gathered

timated st 16,000. Their recent losses

fought desperately. Tbey retreated
only when tbey were" literally hurled
back'at the potato of Spanish bayonet.
At dusk there was a lull In tba fighting.
