WASHINGTON, Nov. 2S.AI
though President Wilxon expected to
bo in New York tonight nml tomor
row, ho hnl completed arrangements
totlny to keep in the closest touch
with Secretary of Stnto Bryan here
concerning the Mciicnn situntion.
Bryan will even rcicnt nil impor
tant messages to the president ver
batim and receive the chief execu
tive's instructions in return.
It was understood that President
VwNon assured Sir William Tyrrel,
privnto secretory to Foreign Secrc
inry Sir Edwnnl Orey of England,
with whom ho talked at length jes
tcrdtiy, that England's repre-entu
lives nt Ttlxpnn and Tampieo have
exaggerated to their government the
gravity of conditions in that terri
tory. The rebels, he was understood
to have told the Briton, had prom
ised to respect foreign lives and
property and the president believed
they would do po.
The chief executive was said to
have admitted that he expected some
foreign property would be destroyed
during the rebels' forward movement
from the north, but to have called
attention to General Currnnra's
plcdgo to mnkc Mich loes good n
soon as the constitutionalists arc in
described by men in the department
of agriculture that they have every
advantage for careful study as well
nrf working out the control of epi
demic diseases caused by bacterial
agencies. They linve the best labor
atory equipment and the best refer
ence libraries that mono eayn buy.
They are given every advantage for
careful and thorough scientific work.
The ynre not required to sieml u
large portion of their time in instruc
tion or teaching, but give their entire
time and effort to the work in hand.
They arc therefore much better able
to handle work of this kind than any
single individual or for that matter
any county or state within the tint
ed States or elsewhere.
That these men spending all of
their time for so many venrs have
not discovered better methods of
epidemic disenso control, does not
neees-sarily mean that they lack in
capability. It mut be remembered
thnt there arc n good many human
diseases which are not preventable by
any treatment yet discovered. It was
thought, for instance, that tubercu
losis, the germ of which was discov
ered about the same time that the
rear blight germ was discovered by
Dr. Ilurnll. could be cured bv a ser
um first tested by Dr. Koch. Re
cently Ihe much talked of Dr. Fried
man thought he had discovered a
serum which would for all time make
tuberculous a disen-c not to be
dreaded. So far the bet efforts of
the best workers in laboratories en
dowed with millions of dollars have
not been able to effect n curative er
iim, or even a preventive one.
V should be careful in condemn-
preventive or curative properties is
not so simple n thine nfter all, et
we often see the most ignorant man
who hns absolutely no knowledge of
chemistry or preventive medicine, at
tempting to cure certain plnnt dis
eases by the injection of some of the
common salts of copper, iron, etc
Copper sulphate and corrosive sub
limate have been favorite remedies
in their hands. The country is liter
nlly full of fakirs, crooks and fools,
who1 think that these simple chemi
cal substances have not been thought
of before. As a department official
I have had occasion to tent hun
dreds of proposed cures, nil of which
naturally failed to bring results. We
often find thoe who have secret
remedies in fact they are so care
ful about concealing what they know
thnt thev do not even apply their own
secret remedies to the very trees that
nre dying under their noses. U has
been the duty of the department to
examine into all the various remedies
which have been propo-ed, and sueh
remedies have been carefully exam
ined. I have been sent on ninny a
long mis-ion to investigate n so
called cure, only to find that it was
a fake of the worst type. In tnot
cases the remedies nre the simplest
kinds of things nud often insoluble
materials, such as charcorfl, enlomel,
and sulphur, nil insoluble in wntor,
are employed. It lint been as mucti
n part of the department's work to
keep such fake remedies out of the
market ns it .has been the study of
methods of. cent rid. , ;

NET GROWER 35
The first carload of tho famous
niuo Triangle brand ot tho Uogtio
Arrtvats of pears tins week totaled ;mvcr wntor Xou crop hng beorj
rouna nootit ouou narrow, over uou
of which came forward on tho "Mln-
netonka;" and whilst there was not
a largo carry-over from last week
tho fruit being got out of band as
soon as possible on account of Its
over-ripo condition this quantity
was more than sufficient for tho re
quirements of tho market. Tho great
bulk of these pears consisted of
Kelffors, other varieties being fin
ished, nnd wo have tho same talo to
toll as regards tho condition ot thoso
Kdlfers as wo reported last week.
Prices for theso ranged from 15s to
As regards tho fancy pear trade,
Winter Ncllls are In very good de
mand, and wo realized for cases ot
Oregon Winter Ncllls 15s whllo we
hear ot frtlr quantities of simitar
fruit being sold at 14s to Its Cd.
Easter and Clout Morceaus are not
In strong demand, and sales havo
been, effected at 7s per half-caso ox
cold store. j
Ah regards tho prospects for pear
on this market, wo think there will
bo an Improvement and that ro,
muneratlvo prices will bo realized In
tho near future for anything that Is
green and bright, clear fruit; but for
tho rubbish such as hns been coming '
forward lately there will ho no du
nland at remunerative prices.
Thcro havo been largo arrivals dur
ing thb past week of box Nowtowus
from Oregon nnd tho ealo has been
ter; flow, not only on account of tho
considerable arrivals, but also on
decpunt of the green condition of tho
fruit, and although doubtless tlm
fruit would keep till tho Christmas
trade required It, such an Investment
finds no favor with buyers at this
Juncture. The quantities coming for
ward are, too largo wo trace some
!2fi cars of box apples this week and
they prefer to buy only colored fruit
for prekout needs. Prices for what
colored fruit there Is, rnugo around
tOs. Yakima nnd Wenatchoo varie
ties are soiling unywhere from Ks to
1 1s, ncordlng to variety. As regards
Callfornians, tho quantity of theho Is
reported sold In London by tho
Northwestern Fruit Exchnngo at n
price that Is far above tho record
sale recently reported for a car at
Glasgow, Scotland. Tho sale was
mado at $2.35 a box, f, o. b, Hoguo
Itlvor ofr 5 tier and J2.00 a box for
Tho market for apples is firm.'
Tho 'local exchange reports tho re
ceipt of an order for six enrs of
Hoguo Hlvcr Newtowns at $2,00 a
box f, o. b. and $1.75 a box for No. ?
stock. The orders wore refused be
cause of tho present strength of tho
market, holders being firm In their
views of $2.25 for extra fancy.
Showing tho extra high prices that
Aro being rccelred for apples by
Northwest growers Is tho announce
ment by tho Northwestern exchange
that during tho last eight days It had
i mado returns ot practically 1G0.000
for CI cars of Cashmeru apples.
