FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1899.
The price of beef still goes up. With
the return of business prosperity the
consuming public finds that the price of
beef has advanced suddenly from 10 to
30 per cent in all the market. Statistic
from the department of agriculture
how that in 18D0 there were 30,819,024
head f cuttle in the United States,
which number steadily decreased until
on January 1 at of thin year it amounted
tj 27,994,225. The decrease of meat
producing animals wait not noticed du
ring the hard times, when people had
to economize on the cotiBuniptiou of
meat, but with the return of prosperity
and a sudden demand for more meat,
there was a shortage. That the stock
growers are .receiving the greater, ,jH)r
tion of the profits from the advance in
price is evident from the fact that in
August, 1817, the best price puid by the
packers in the open markets of Chicago
and Kansas City for choice "Western
cattle on the hoof was f 4.80 a hundred
pounds, which is a cost of 7.9 cents a
pound for prinie beef,, while in AugUHt,
1899, the price for the best grade of cat
tle had gone up to 6.20 a hundred
pounds, making prime beef cost 9.25
cents a pound. There are several rea
sons why the number of cattle has been
:dccreaHiii.v The first fttid most inijWrt
ant of these is the failure of millions of
acres of grazing hind in the Vest be
cause of its having been over-pastured.
The country is becoming ftmced, and
the day of the vrtst range liilrd fit pant.
Tht industry fa rapidly pasting from
large to small holdings The business
of rai8ing,lgiiller herds Tn connection
with farming is far more profitable than
the raising of bii herds, which is ut
tended with the dangers and risks of
heavy loss in hard, winters. Many farm
er with Hutill herds will take the place
of a je lqkjneu with big herds. Hood
River farmers may find that it will pny
better to feed their hay and grow more
stock than tajteU-diay at prices we mny
have to cojxipiftUi With in the near future,
Besides, it ia'poor policy to sell off farm
crops, cputiianalyi without returning
someXhing to, the soil. Willi excellent
export markets and increased home de
maifd, the high price of beef is lipt to
continue for tome time.
The Venezuelan boundary dispute has
ttt last been settled. The court of arhi-i
.tration made somewhat of a compromise
between the respective claims of Eng
land and Venezuela, und established the
boundary, with slight modifications, on
the line of the Schamburgh survey of
1810. England is given possession of
valuable gold fields, but the .South
American ' republic is in full pos
Bession of the land at the mouth of
tfjq Orinoco river. . This Is the cXilmina-l
tion of repeated attowpu by Venezuela
for a settlement of the dispute by arbi
tration.- England refused repeatedly to-
recognize the enezuelan demands mi
til Ptftvidnt Cleveland's message of 1805
wade, 'England realise that she must
recognize the request by the United
St4e thaji the dispute be arbitrated-.
The arbitration tribunal consisted of
five membors, Chief Justice Fuller and
Justice Brewer Were chosen by Vent-i
tuela. Justice Collins of the British
supreme court of judicature and Lord
Ilussell represented Great Britain. The
fifth member, M. do Martens, chief
counselor .pf.- the. Russian foreign office,
was-' Chosen by the other four. The sit
tings of the tribunals were held this
summer at Paris, and the chief agent

by cY-president Harrison.
The University of- Oregon Monthly,
Vol. IV.', No. 1( has been received. The
magazine, as the mime implies, is a
monthly iublication, gotten out by the
HUidentsof .tlie. state university. - It is
cdsily'the best college publication in the
state, and would certainly compare fa
vorably with like, publications from the
big universities of California. The only
uncomplimentary feature about the pub
. lioatioR is the poor proof reading. The
, student editors ought to be better ac
quainted with the common rules for
punctuation and syllabification. "What
the University Has Done" is an article
by Prof. Glen thtit ought to be read by
those who care to know what our state

Hjent tihow that tho army has- now
reached it: full suthon'ied etreLgth lud
that 100,000 men are available as a fight
ing force wherever their services may be
required. Of this force 05,000 men
belong to the regular service and 35,000
to the volunteer. When it becomes
necessary to further .Increase the army,
congress must act before additional
troops can be secured. The present
army, under the law, can be maintained
until June 20, 1901, when it Returns to
its normal strength. Nearly one-half of
the enlarged army has been recruitcxl,
armed and equipped since lust Junp,
when the first call was issued for more
troops, and of the regiments enlt-ted for
the cumpaigu iu the Philippines many
huve either been landed in Manila or are
on the way. , It is estimated, that Gen
eral Otis has now under his command
nearly 49,000 men, and with other reg
iments uow on . the way .and those "that
will deiiartnext mouth, his strength by
the middle of December will approxi
mate 08,000. 'This is the army the ad
ministration depends upon to subdue
the Filipinos, and should it prove unable
to meet the situation, it is said it will
not be practicable to send re-enforcements
from Jroopg stationed at, garrisons
at home or in Cuba or' Porto Rico,
which have all been depleted to the
limit. The military authorities in the
Philippines will, it is said, wait for the
arrival of all these re-enforcement,
before .beginning flue-campaign, which,
in all probability, will open early in
November with a general movement
nguiust the enemy. Nor does it seemJ
probable there will be any change in:
the programme of maintaining General
Otis in eomjnand of the troops with full
authority, " such , as jhe has exercised

Hon. Emil Scl.anno, horticultural
commissioner for the fifth district, has
made his quarterly report to the state
board of horticulture, from which we
take the following extracts: r ,
Since July 1st I have-visited various
portions of my district, and particularly
such portions as have orchards infested
with Kan Jose scale. This pest, so plen
tiful two and three years ago, is rapidly
disappearing from our fruit.. The ma
jority of the old orclmtdists seem noy. to
better understand the." method of dealing
with the scale, spravinK systematically
withlinw, sulphur and wilt, luid hence
experience no (urtlier Uilhculty in nil
ding thefr trees 'of the' pest. A few er-r
ceptiotial cases are lNrtetl, howevpr; lot
example, where the owners of s(me-fi
the old orcliards liave leased their place
and moved awav. 1 propose next year.
however, to make an example of simu!
of these non-residents by seeing that the"
law is promptly enforced, yules ttiey
give their fruit trees the necessary care
and attention to' protect them from the
ravages of Han Jose scale, eodlin moth,
and so on. . ..
The fruit crop, on tlie.whule, did not
come uf) to 'expeclalfonSi tliis season ; at
least, tho fruit men generally expected a
larger crop. At the same time the prices
obtained for t lie fruit have been quite
satisfactory to the growers. The sug
gestions which 1 1'ffored to'fruit growers'

their fruit into the cars -and sell the
same outright to some fruit buyer who
