WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
Downing. Hopkins 'Companj-'f Review
The past week has added materially
to the previously strong position of
wheat values viewed from the position
of supplies and demand. The crop
prospect as a whole retrograded, but
more particularly in California, where
drought and hot winds have caused a
reduotion in expected yield of at least
25 per cent, as compared with 'last
year. Foreign crop prospects are much
poorer, especially in France, where
the estimted yield is 75,000,000 bush
els smaller than last year, and conser
vative grain dealers predict large im
portations during the comings crop
year. Values have been firmly held
and while no material advance has oc
curred, the market has gained in
strength and ' receives better support
than during the previous week. The
export demand is fair and improving.
Interior supplied are rapidly - dimin
ishing, and it is now a patent fact that
stooks will be reduced to the lowest
possible point before the winter wheat
harvest. Nothing but the absence of
a generous speculative support prevents
a materiaLadvance in values, but un
der exisitng conditions, the scarcity of
supplies in America and the increased
wants of importing oountries, owing to
short orops at home, crop failures in
exporting countires other than America,
the ultimate result must be higher
values. The prospects of the spring
wheat crop are good, but not sufficient
ly so to offset the short winter wheat
corp-, fexhausted reserves and increased
wants, from abroad. The "tendency of
the market even without speculative
support seems Blowly but steadily

No More Indian Soldiers.
The last of the Indian companies of
the United States army, stationed at
Fort Sill, O. T., is to be disbanded.
This marks the end of the effort to
make efficient soldiers out of the war
like aborigines of the frontier. At first
the experiment bade, fair to be success
ful. Several companies, both of cavalry
and infantry, were organized in com
mand of white officers who had mani
fested particular friendliness for the
Indians. The young braves liked the
jaunty uniforms, and promptly mas
tered the intricacies of military evolu
tions. They became men of mark in
their tribes. But soon the rigid dis
cipline and the enforced absence from
their homes and families became irk
some. They began to neglect their
duties and to appear first indifferent,
then sullen and mutinous. One by one
the Indian troops and companies have
been disbanded until there remained
only the command at Fort Sill, com
posed of fifty of Geronirao's Apache
warriors. Though they will cease to
be regular soldiers of the United States,
these Indians will not leave the mili
tary service. They will probably be
retained, as other former soldiers have
been, as soouts-in which capacity the
red braves have had ample experience
in our Indian wars, and, indeed, have
proven themselves indispensabile auxil
iaries. Boston Journal.
Ants With Human Habits.
The German traveler Von Ihering
has discovered in Brazil a species of
ants which have regular summer and
winter resorts. In winter they live on
the ground, in summer in big nests con
structed on trees, in order to escape the
danger of inundation when the snow
melts and the rivers rise.
No More Hot Boxes. ;
One of the most wonderful of recent
inventions is a roller bearing for car
wheels which does away with the use
of lubricants. There will be no more
hot boxes. One wheel has had a test
of 170,000 miles in the West without
the application of a drop of oil.
Some English reporters now take

With a better understanding of the

ical ills, which vanish before proper ef
forts gentle efforts pleasant efforts
rightly directed. There is comtort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
sickness are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which the pleasant
family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with mill ions of families, and is
everywhere esteemed bo highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene

If in the enjoyment of good health,

VICTORIA'S DIAMOND JUBILEE
Completion of 60 Tears as Sovereign to
.. Be Observed In Portland, Oregon.
In all parts of the British empire the
celebration on the 21st and 22d of June
will be universal, and the British resi
dents of Oregon are not going to be be
hind any other state in showing their
loyalty, by "practical charity and rejoio-.
The British-born residents of the
United Kingdom residing in . Portland
are getting in readiness to celebrate the
60th anniversary of the reign of hei
majesty, Queen Viotoria, during the
On June 21st, 1897, Queen Victoria
will have occupied the British throne
just 60 years, the longest reign yet re
corded for a British sovereign. Thie
period has been one of the most pros
perous the English people have experi
enced. Her majesty is associated with
the happiness of the nation in an in
separable manner, so that the periods of
her oareer are noted as events of the
The respect and affection of subjects
born during her reign is to be shown
by notable celebrations in every part
of the world.
In Portland the different British so
cieties have had under contemplation,
for some time arrangements for the oc
casion. Members have been notified
and committees appointed to confer on
the subject. Mr. James Laid law, Brit
ish consul for the port, called a meeting
recently for the purpose of seouring con
certed action. About BO persons re
sponded, which will give a fair idea of
the number of British-born people in
Portland when the peroent of a certain
class that can be induced to attend a
called meeting of this nature is con
An organization was perfected, Mr.
Laidlaw being made president; Donald
Macleay, J. C. Robinson, William-Mao-master
and William S. Sibson, vice
presidents; E. Lea. Barnes, treasurer,
and William B. Mackenzie, secretary.
At a subsequent meeting a general
committee of 25 was appointed.
At subsequent meetings of the gen
eral committee resolutions as under
"That the chairman appoint a finance
committee- to collect funds to com
memorate the event, the funds so col
lected to be used for such purposes as
a subsequent meeting shall determine.,
"That the object for which funds are
to be collected by the committee shall
be the endowment of a bed or beds in
the Good Samaritan hospital, for the
use of persons of British birth, and to
be called 'Queen Victoria's Diamond
Jubilee Bed.' " -
In conformity with the foregoing, we
have now to appeal to the British-born
residents of the state of Oregon for
funds to carry out the purposes set
forth in the resolutions. We do so
with the utmost confidence that our ap
peal will meet with a hearty response
from all parts of the state, feeling sure
that no more noble commemoration of
this diamond jubilee year can be had,
nor one more characteristic of her
majesty, Queen Victoria than to provide
in perpetuity a place where the desti
tute sick can receive the comforts and
attendance they require free of all ex
pense. The objeot is not a local one, but the
benefits will be open to persons other
wise eligible from all parts of the state,
and we feel certain that amongst the
thousands of British-birth resident in
Oregon there is not one who would not
freely contribute according to the meas
ure of his ability.
As an indication of what funds are
required, it may be mentioned that the
cost of endowment of one bed is $3,500.

The plan outlined by the general com
mittee consists of having a concert in
the O. N. G. armory, Monday evening,
June 21, Mr. Francis Sealy having been
appointed chairman of the concert com
mittee. It is also the intention to have
a banquet at the Hotel Portland, Tues
day evening, June 22, Mr. Percy II.
Blyth having been appointed chairman
of the banquet committee. All the net
proceeds from the concert and the ban
quet are to go to the hospital fund.
It is hoped that many , British-born
residents throughout the states of Ore
gon and Washington will come to Port
land and join in the celebration. Any
information desired by out of town resi
dents will be gladly furnished on appli
cation to the seoretary or any member
of the general committee. As this is
the only means we have of reaching our
friends outside the city, it is to be
hoped that they will correspond early
and give us their co-operation.

( WARMTH FOR COMFORT.
An old cat loves a sunny corner and a
fong nap, and this is natural and wise. The
genial warmth of the sun lulls to rest, and
while asleep, it may be curative to the cat's
few ailments. Soreness and stiffness come
upon ns suddenly and put the machinery
of the body out "of gear. St. Jacobs Oil
goes suddenly to work upon the trouble,
and with its warmth, like warmth, to the
old oat, it lulls the pain to sleep, drives out
the cold, softens the stiffened muscles,
lubricates the machinery, and in a short,
time puts the whole body in good working
order. Soreness and stiffness are not much
to cure by the use of St. Jacobs Oil but, if
neglected, they take the form of rheuma
tism which gives a groat deal more pain.

Legal Status of Dogs.
The owner of a valuable Newfound
land dog in New Orleans sought dam
ages from a railroad company for killing
it. The case turned on the validity of
an act of the Louisiana legislature,
recognizing dogs as personal property
only when placed on the assessment
rolls. The supreme court sustains the
law and refuses damages, since the dog
was not assessed, incidentally defining
the law in regard to dogs in general as
follows: "The very fact that they are
without protection of the criminal laws
shows that property in dogs is of an
imperfect or qualified nature, and that
they stand, as it were, between animals
ferae naturae, in which, until subdued,
there is no property, and domestio ani
mals, in which the right of property is
complete. They are not considered as
being upon the same plane with horses,
cattle, sheep and other domestic ani
mals, but rather in the category of cats,
monkeys, parrots, singing birds and
similar animals kept for pleasure, curi
osity or caprice. Unlike domestio ani
mals, they are useful neither as beasts
of burden, for draft, nor for. food. "
