WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
Trade Condition! In tne Leading. Ultieg.
of the World.
'. v Leiter furnished proof last week of
'''the moat convincing kind that his
( wheat deal is to bo carried" through to
; the last day of , May. Ap enormous
:. loan was made $9,000,000 of the
. amount borrowed waa away beyond any
present necessities; but the wheat bull
decided it waa better financiering to
pay interest on unuaed funda than to
risk a demoralized money . market at
"the' very moment when borrowing
. might be necessary. Leiter now haa
the funda in bank to pay for any possi
ble wheat deliveries during the next 60
daya. Aa important as the financial
arrangement waa the completion of
plane to nurry tne grain controlled Dy
him. abroad . and. .into consumption.
, Every bushel of contract wheat now at
.- Chioago will be on its way to Europe
within the next four weeks. Up to
the middle of Maroh the railroads were
loading Leiter wheat out ' of only 'one
system of elevators the Armour. The
closing of additional shipping con
traots "with the east-bound roada for
8,000,000 bushela started loading at
every elevator system in the city. On
r on day last .week," cars were taking
wheat simultaneously at .the Armour,
the wears, the uounse'man, the .National,-
the Central and the; Keith
houses. That means the all rail ship
ments of 8,000,000 bushels per week.'
Some day this week, unless the open
ing of navigation is delayed beyond the
expectation, the fleet of: 80 vessels
. carrying 1,700,000 bushels of the Lei
ter wheat will start down the lakes
toward Buffalo. Weather ? permitting,
. 8,000,000 bushels of wheat will start
:from Chioago thia week eastward; will
be at the seaboard by April 15, and
. This Leiter movement of cash grain,
how under way for 60 days, is evident-

BENEFIT TO THE NORTHWEST.
.Complete' Suooeas of the Mining and
Irrigation Congress at Baker City. '
The mining and irrigation congress
which met. in Baker City, last week,
will prove of much benefit to the
Northwest. Much enthusiasm was
manifested throughout its sessions, and
when final adjournment was taken, it
was with a feeling that the convention
had been a success. It was Baker
City's first experience In entertaining
a crowd of that oharaoter, and its citi
zens bad cause to be gratified At the re
sult. The town surprised itself by its
achievement. As the oitizens and vis
itors became better acquainted, more
informality came into the proceedings,
and miners and capitalists got oloser
together, and the vastness of the min
eral resources of the region was better
appreciated. All felt a personal in
terest in mining and irrigation, and no
one was so wise that be did not get
new and broader ideas, and perhaps
more special knowledge of those mat
ter's so essential to the industrial de
velopment of the groat Northwest. " t
' The last day a oonsitution and by
laws for a permanent organization was
reported,' and, after some disoussion,
adopted.. .The name chosen ... was the
Mining and - Irrigation Congress; ob
ject, to promote and foster mining and
irrigation-enterprises and other kindred
industries; the offloers to be a presi
dent, a vice-president from each state,
who shall choose the . seoretary and
treasurer; the meetings to be held , an
nually, at a time and plaoe to be; se
lected by the congress; the congress to
be composed of delegates from Oregon,
Utah, Colorado, "" Wyoming, Idaho,
Washington, Montana, California ;and
Nevada, to be appointed aa follows:
Seven by the governor of each state;
one by the mayor of each city; three
by each chamber of commeroe, com
mercial club, board of trade or other
similar s organization' in .. "each "." city;
three from each county, to be appoint
ed by the county judge or chairman of
the oounty board; three from each reg
ularly organized mining distriot within
the states." The committee on legisla
tion will consist of two members from
each state,- who will present a written
report at each annual congress.
iWhenitcame to selecting a place
for the next meeting, J. F. Batchelder
named Portland as the commercial and
financial metropolis of the Northwest,
whore facilities for accommodating a
great gathering and - for . a - display of
mining machinery and methods of re
ducing ores could be found. K. W.
Paris proposed Boise as able- to handle
a big convention, it being more central
ly located with respect to the. mining
states, being itself in the center of a
vast region, whose chief industries - the
congress would relate to. C. A." Johns
named Baker City. A dozen speeches
were made by partisans of the different
places. A ballot resulted as follows:
Portland, 41; Boise, 14; . Baker
City, 6. .
Portland was made the unanimous
choice. ' . , .' , - ...
" The time for holding the next meet-'
ing was fixed for the first Tuesday in
December, 1898, after a long discussion,
bringing -out seasonable,-demands of
placer and quartz mining. and irrigation
farming and after reference to a oom
mittee of three whose report was adopt
ed. Albert Geiser, of Baker City, waa
unanimously elected permanent presi
dent of the organization. The follow
ing vioepresidents were chosen: - f '
Oregon Ole J. Olsen, Grants Pass;
Idaho State Engineer F. J. Mills,
Boise; Washington Dr. J. M. Boyd,
Spokane; Utah Thomas D. Lee, Og
den. The executive committee is com
posed of the following:. - '7." 'V ;
Oregon Fred R. Mollis, Baker City,
and J. F. Batchelder, Portland; Idaho
A. D.-Morrison, Idaho Falls, and J.
F. Hunt, Downey; Washington G. B.

The governors of California, Nevada,

, A .committee presented resolutions to
the effect that only questions pertaining
to mining and irrigation should be dis
cussed before the oongress; nrging im
mediate action for a mineral exhibit at
the Trans-Mississippi exposition from
the several states represented in the
congress; acknowledging appreciation
of and extending hearty thanks to the
citizens of Baker City for the many
courtesies and attentions received. : ,.:
Captain Robley D. Evans, who goes
into; command ' of the war ship Iowa,
vice Captain Sampson, has no rival for
popularity -in Washington, or in the
navy department. The captain is
quoted as having said recently that if
he t had his way ''there would,, be
nothing but Spanish talked in for
the next five years." Evans was in
command of the Yorktbwn during tha
late trouble with Chile, and he wanted
to blow Valparaiso off the earth, because
of the insults put upon Amerioa by the
citizens of that town." ' But the navy
department refused, and Evans waa
commended . ' for the admirable . self
restraint tie exercised.-. -. Since then he
has no love for Spain.., Evans is gener
ally known as '"Fighting Bob'!". Evans,
a pseudonym which ho dislikes very
much. ' He has a limp which he earned
during his . service, with Uncle Sam in
the '.60s,, and other marks of -war -on
his person. ' Evans belongs to a Vir
ginia .family, ' and when the South
Boceded, bis mother, without his 'con
sent, sent his resignation to' Washing

suaded. th'4,,depa'r.tment to;. abrogate, it,

rived muoh benefit from the use of
Hood'B Sarsaparilla.' ' My father was
severely troubled with humor, but it
readily yielded to Hood's Sarsaparilla."
Thomas A.i Coleman, Davidson, Or.i
"Four or five years ago' I had sores
on my feet so that I was unable to wear
shoes. - I saw Hood's Sarsaparilla ad
vertised to oure scrofula, and I prooured
two bottles. By the time I had taken
them my feet were well." ,' ,

r. " Swallowing His Words. '
"While I was at Moscow," writes a
traveler, whose words are reproduced
by the Detroit Free Press, . "a volume
was published in favor of tbe liberty of
people. In this book the iniquitous
conduct of the publio functionaries,
and even of the sovereign, : were cen
sured severely. The book created in
dignation, and the offender was at once
taken Into Custody. After being tried
in a summary way, he . was condemned
to eat his own words. A scaffold was
erected in a public square, tbe imperial
provost, the magistrates and the physi
cians of the czar attending, the book
Was separated from the binding, and
the margin cut off. The author was
then served, leaf by leaf, by the pro
vost, and was obliged to swallow . this
unpalatable stuff on pain of the knout,
more feared in Russia than death. Ab
soon as the medical . gentlemen were of
the Opinion that he had eaten as much
fes he could with safety, the transgressor
Was returned to prison. This punish
ment was renewed the following dayB,
until after several hearty meals, every
leaf of the book was aotually : swal
lowed." '' ; i ' - -

Many are the . prayers that are
