In the last year under the McKin­
ley tariff, labor found ready employ­
ment at higher wages than at any
time in the history of the countrv,
and a day s wages would buy more of
the necessaries or luxuries of life
than at any other period. By the
same standard of measurement there
had been a steady depreciation of
currency under republican rule.

Frances Willard, the noted temper­

Chautauqua, when she was • there

W. H. Baker on application was ap­
pointed to fill the vacancy in the scholar­
ship at the state agricultural college
caused by absence of Arthur Lambert.
Seven prisoners were taken to the
penitentiary from Wallowa and two
from Coos county on the 27th.
Grant’s Pass lost a half block of
business houses by fire Monday
night. The origin of the fire is un­
known.
H. W. Cottle has resigned as sec­
retary and manager of the State in­
surance company of Salem, on ac­
count of ill health.
It is reported that 275 students
are now in attendance at the Uni­
versity of Oregon.
The largest
number ever enrolled at one time in
the history of the institution.
Collector Blackman figures out
that there are 300,000 packs of play­
ing cards in the northwest that will
have to be stamped. Deputies will
¡go over the field to see that the law
is enforced.
A distillery for the manufacture of
fruit brandy was recently started
near Oswego by Daniel Montour.
This is said to be the only distillery
in the lower valley except a small
one at Butteville.
Mr. Finley of Benton county has a
prune crop valued at $3.000. It will
amount to about 70,000 pounds,
dried. The weight of fruit on his
Hungarian trees broke off many
branches, which he permitted that
he might graft the trees with Italian
slips. Under this process they will
bear Italian prunes in two years.
Finley thinks prunes can be raised
profitably at three cents per pound.
A. N. Wood, of Carlton, Yamhill
county, was brought before Justice
Hughes Monday on a warrant sworn
out bjr H. B. Luce, food and dairy
commissioner. Wood was charged
with selling adulterated lard, to
which he plead guilty, but claimed
that he was ignorant of the fact that
it was adulterated, having bought
it of some one else. As there was
not sufficient evidence to prove him
guilty on this point the action was
dismissed at his cost, amounting to
$19.10. Deputy prosecuting attorney
Adams prosecuted and Wood himself
defended. Under the statute any
vendor selling food articles that are
impure or adulterated is liable to a
fine whether he is ignorant of the
fact or not, but a judge is authorized
to use discretion where the vendor is
ignorant.— Forest Grove Times.

Hop gathering is about over in

The sale of A. H. Pape was at­
tended by a large crowd and, consid­

to bring a good price.
The voters of school district No. 10
met and elected Wm. Nelson to fill
the unexpired term of Hans Miller,
resigned.
The rain that lias fallen is very ac­
ceptable to the farmers, as it will en­
able them to get some of their 32
cent wheat in the ground and out of
their sight.
A grand harvest ball was held in
in the hall on Ribbon ridge on the
evening of the 28th and an enjoyable
time was reported.
Several from this neighborhood
have been “courting” in the county
seat the past week.
Peter Christenson has erected a

He carried an insurance in the State

resolved to decline the nomination
for governor of New York. The last
recorded words of his were: “I have

the boy said when he was caught in
his own bear trap.
C andidates for state railroad com­
missioner are beginneng to bob up.
The best thing to do is to abolish the
commission and let them bob down
at their leisure. The legislature can
afford to assume enough responsibil­
ity to lower passenger rates to at
least three cents a mile, and if it
should pass a maximum rate freight
bill it would be a step in the right
direction.
Little Rock, Ark., was visited by
a disastrous cyclone Tuesday. Four
persons were killed and about forty
injured. The damage to property is
estimated at a million dollars.
Connecticut election returns from
all but two of the 164 towns in the

majority sufficient to elect a senator,
with the election being thrown into
the legislature at the November elec­
