SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 1895.
Whatever may be the opinion of Mr.
Coon's constituents in other parts of
this legislative district in regard to his
course in the legislature, we know that
lie is indorsed by a large majority of
his party in Hood River. A few re
publicans, populists and democrats
here wanted to see Mr. Dolph returned.
Leading populists hoped to see him
re-elected because, they think, it would
have disrupted the republican party
In Oregon and assured an easy victory
for the ' populism in, '96. Cleveland
democrais were not averse to his re
election, .because he is sound ou the
money quesi ion, and they know that
no new genus ur cuii fill his place when
it comes to procuring needed appropri
ations for Oregon. A few republicans
of course think Mr. Dolph was really
elected lust June, and that he was
Bhuiuifully. treated after receiving the
caucus'iiomiuatiou at Salem. But the
great majority of Mr. Uoon's home con
stituent .support him and will be
ready to vote for him again a year
from next June. '
T. B. Straven, i?. D. Cartwright and
five others of Portland are preparing to
go to. the gold fields of the Yukon in
Alaska. The venture is an arduous
one, involving great exposure and per
ianal hardship. The party Will go
from Juneau by steamer to Chilcataud
foot it over the mountains to the Yu
kon river. They then go 800 miles up
the river to 40-ruilo post, and from
there travel into an unexplored coun
try. : The party will consume three
months gettiug into the gold region.
The first year will be devoted to open
ing up mines, and the second in get
tiug out. It will cost each person $500
for personal expenses to start in with.
The mining there is all placer. Mr.
ytraven has specimens to show that a
season's cleaning up , will pay big
money. , . ' " '"
The session of the Oregon legislature
just closed, accomplished very little for
the good of the stale. The members of
the majority' were elected on a plat
form pledging economy and the abol
ishment of the useless commissions,
but none were abolished and expenses
Were not reduced. The time of the
session was squandered in -the election
of a senator, and when they did elect,
at the last moment, none of them were
very proud of their work. Republican
platforms in '96 will not point with
pride to the work of the last legislative
session, with its 54 majority. And it

The Sew Party.
Washington, Feb. 23. If new politi
cal alignments can be forced on the
silver question and the South and the
West be brought together in support of
the white metal, the coming twelve
months are expected to tell the tale.
The proposition, as at present discuss
ed, contains no new feature.' The argu
ment has became familiar through years
of agitation. .
It seems to be agreed that if this new
combination is effected the head of the
ticket to represent it should come from
the West, and the second man from the
South. Memories of the war are not,
after all, it appears, to be banished.
Southern men of such caliber ns would
entitle them to consideration in con
nection with the presidency all partici
pated in the Confederacy. Morgan of
Tennessee, vest or Missouri ana Mills
of Texas, all saw service under lh
Southern flag, and the fear is that this
record might prove injurious to the
ticket in the West. Bland, however.
has no Confederate record, yet the
Western silverite8 seem inclined to ig
nore him. But for second place the
woutu would De expected to compete
for the nomination and would probably
be accorded that without very great
For first place Mr. Teller easily has
the call in popular speculation. The
silver men regard him as their ablest
champion in congress. They refer to
his speecnes as evidence or nis thorough
mastery of the subject, and to his' tac
tics in the senate as tne recognized sil
ver leader as a proof of his skill and dis
cretion. His experience in general
politics has been wide, and this has
given him a standing among the men
in public life. He is regarded as being
invincible in the West. His friends
declare that he is on . every score the
greatest individual force in politics in
all the country between the Mississip
pi river and the Pacific ocean. The
South also it is claimed, regards him
with marked favor. He is more to her
than the eminent advocate of silver.
He was the Randall of the second force
He left his party on that issue and
voted and acted with the democrats in
the fight in the fifty-first congress that
resulted in the shelving of the Lodge
bill in the senate. This, it is asserted,
would make Mr. Teller, as a political
candidate on a sil ver platform, exceed
ly popular throughout the South, and
certain, if associated with a popular
Southern man, of au overwhelming
vote in that section.
The gathering here at this time of
Senators elect Butler and Tillman,
General Warner of the Bimetallic lea
gue, Editor Howell of Atlanta and
other prominent friends of silver, gives
to this matter intense interest. One
hears it on every hand. The silver
men, both In and out of congress, are
very confident. They believe that
every thing is going their wav, and it
is tor this reason that they are urging
the more conservative of'their friends
to go into a bold movement, with silver
put above every consideration. The
battle, they contend, cannot be won,
witnin tne raiiKs or eitner or me old
parties so long as both are so much un
der the domination of the Eastern
money power. The cause of silver
alone, they hold, is worthy of a party.

The Newtown Pippin.
The apple that commands the high
est price in both home and foreign
markets is tthe Newtown Pippin.
When Baldwins and other choice va
rieties sell at $3 per barrel at Liverpool,
the Newtown Pippin sells at $9, and
the same proportion holds true in our
domestic market. The fruit often re
tails as high as $12 or $15 per barrel.
Downing, the authority on fruits,
says as follows of the variety :"J- :" It
stands at the head of all apples, and s
when in perfection, acknowledged to
be unrivaled in all the qualities which"
constitute the high-flavored dessert ap
ple, to which it combines the quality
of long keeping without the least
shriveling, retaining its high flavor to
There Is probably no one apple which
is more largely modified by its environ
mentby varying soils and climates.
It flourishes best on hill or mountain
sides, or in mountainous regions.
The apple, to be at its best, must not
be planted on alluvial soil. The trees
will flourish and be productive, but
they will not produce fruit in all re
spects equal to that grown on hillsides.
Edward Van Alstine, one of the most
successful growers of this fruit in Co
lumbia county, in the Hudson river re
gion, writes us: "The Newtown Pip
pin requires a rather heavy but well
drained soil. . It should be planted
where there is a good circulation of air
and plenty Of sunlight. -. No apple
needs or shows the beneficial results of
spraying more. I find they should be
sprayed with the ammoniacal solution
of copper before the leaves open, say
early in April; then with bordeaux
mixture ana Paris green again after
ten days or two weeks; and another ap-
Elication of bordeaux in June and per
aps another in July. This will de
pend largely on the weather. In an
ordinarily dry season three applications
of copper solution and bordeaux are all
that is necessary. The first application
of the copper solution I believe to be
the most important. , I had trees last
fall that showed plainly the bordeaux
applied in June, when the apples were
picked in October. I grew them this
year very large, and as free from scab
as an orange bright and red-cheeked.
I marketed them in Liverpool, London
and Glasgow. This year they have
gone into cold storage. They do not
come into bearing as early as some
other varieties. They need very heavy
fertilization, both with manure! and
potash; also thorough pruning." F. G,

1 he Ohio experiment station in one
of its bulletins gives the following di
rections for staking and pruning that
may be of interest to our Hood River

order to provide for this the folloWing
plan has been touud to be satisfactory
Set strong stakes at each end of every
row and brace carefully. Smaller
stakes may be set at intervals of two
rods along the rows. - These stakes
should be about three and one-half feet
in height. Next stretch two wires of
about the size used in bailing hay along
the tops of. the stakes' in each row,
Take ordinary lath, or small sticks, of
any kind ot the same length as the
lath, and stick one just at the side of
tne place that each plant is to occupy.
The upper ends of the stakes are held
in place toy crossing the two wires back
and forth ; that is by weaving the wires
around the tops ot the stakes or laths,
This makes a neat little trellis, suf
ficiently substantial tor one season, but
the material can be used several years
The plants are trained to single stems
ana to the lath supports, ur course ty
ing must be done at successive inter
vals, as the plants increase in -height,
until the top of the trellis is 'reached,
after which nothing further need be
done in the way of training. All side
shoots near the ground and suckers
must be kept pinched off, as the object
to be gained in staking would be lost
otherwise. None- of the blossems are
to be removed, but simply the leafy
shoots and suckers. Tomatoes thus
trained ripen about two weeks in ad
vance of those which are allowed to lie
on the ground, and are freer from rot
and are larger. The crop per plant is
smaller than hv ordinnrv methods, hut
because of the higher price obtained for

"Rickety Dan" Benton.
Springfield, 111., Feb. 19. Deputy
Marshal Brinton today dispatched a
deputy to Mill Shoals, White county,
With an order remanding "Rickety
Dan" Benton to the penitentiary ftt
Chester. It will be remembered thidt
Benton was convicted in the United
States court here of personating Wil
liam Newby. a Union soldier, who was
killed at Shiloh, for the purpose of pro
curing a pension. He was sentenced
to the penitentiary for two years and
entered upon his term, but was released
on ball, atter having served about two
months, pending a filial decision by
the United States supreme court, to
which his case was taken on appeal.
The upper court dismissed the appeal
several weeks ago, but it was not until
a few days ago that the remanding or
der was issued to the marshal.
The "Newby case" was one of the
most remarkable ever tried in a court
in this country. Scores of people, who
knew William Newby in lite, were led
to believe that "Rickety Dan" Benton
and he were one and the same person.
Newby's wife accepted him as her hus
band, whom she had mourned as dead
for 30 years, and then the aged mother
of the dead soldier became convinced
that the wretched specimen of mane:.
hooa, who put. in an appearance-in
Southern Illinois a few years ago,
claiming to be William Newby, was in
deed her "long lost son." Hundreds
of people in three counties of Southern
tii! r . i i i i a i .
j-iuuois were uumuuggeu oy tneimpos
ter, and exalted him into a hero, whom
the government of the United States
was persecuting to keep him out of a
pension for which he was an applicant.
G. A. U. posts made his case their
own and raised hundreds of dollars for
his defense, and when lie was released
from the penitentiary on bail he was
received back at his home with a brass
band and every possible demonstration
of love and confidence that the people
of the community could manifest. And
yet he was simply a wandering old
vagabond and horse thief, who had cul
tivated an intimate acquaintanceship
with the Interior of at least one peni
tentiary and a score of jails. It is un
derstood that public sentiment has un
dergone considerable change in regard
to the old fellow since his trial, but there
are many people in White and Hamil
ton counties who believe, and will as
long as life remains, probably, that
"Rickety Dan" Benton is really Wil
liam Newby, who for more than 30
years has tilled a soldier's grave on tne
battlefield of Shiloh. St. Louis Re
