CHURCH4 AND SrATE.
Governor Peon yer'a Thanksgiving
procamition Is tlie boldest attempt to
unite Jbe fonctloDB of church and state1
that hu ever beeu ulaced on record.
Probably the only religions function of
m. state official Is the lauinx or a prop-
erly worded admrfnUlpri seltitig aside a
day for all the peop'e to case iroiu
buslne and politico an J render appro
priate tribute to the divine will that
orders the eaons and prepares the
bounteom harvest. To indulge In poli
Heal Insinuation and sbarp thrusts at a
political euemy on such au occasion
and In such a document, and of such a
character that they border closely on
the malicious, is certainly improper.
But to Introduce political debate on a
sacred occasion Is contrary to the spirit
of our laws.
It Is a well-known custom all over
our country, Including Oregon, for peo
ple to assemble In Union Thanbaglving
services in auy comninoity on Thanks
giving day. It ia part of the genial
and universal custom on that day for
all classes of cltlz'us, without distinc
tion of party or creed, to assemble in
one service. It is part of tbnt service
to have the presiden'ts proclamation
and the governor's proclamation read,
setting aside that day for religious wor
ship. If such messages bb Governor
Pennoyer's are to be read at such gath
erings, It will not only profane tbe da,
offend many who come to observe the
day In Its proper spirit, but it would in
troduce into the pu'pit in an official
state document a poli Ileal controversy
that would Involve the whole assem
bly. The minister who did not nKree
with the governor's peculiar 'Isms
would be justified in refuting them.
Anyone In the audience wno did not
like tho Populist proclamation could
ask leave to reply and it could not be
reiUBed. Resolutions would be Intro
duced pro and con and a religious meet
Ing would break up In a political row.
The stump speech would supplant tb
pulpit and the house of God be turned
into a menagerie of deningogues. The
governor wou d not probably care
so long as it advertised him. But the
evil would not end here. Besides tend
ing to disrupt any church that would
allow that proclamation to be read
from Its pulpil, it would disgrace the
occasion to gratify the spleen of one
man who nevar fall to allow au oppor
tunity to pass to liuvo his illug at
The line of demarcation between
church and stale cannot be too Jeulous
Jy guarded in our country. Hewboby
any act unites the functions of a free
church and a free state Is no filodd of
American liberty. We have at times
approved of acts of Governor Pen
noyer's admlnl tratlou und may do so
again. But this attempt to Introduce
by virtue of the power entrusted to
him by tho people his own peculiar
politica views, be ihey never so just,
into the exercises of a sacred day, and
have propounded from the pulpits all
over the stat - largo doses of Pennoyer's
Populism, Id an outrage in every sense
of the word. The preacher or priest
who would so far forget himself us to
have the message read or referred to
from his pulpit would commit another
publlo mlBdemcauor of the highest or
OP INTEREST TO FRUIT GROWERS,
from the Portland Rural Northwest.
It L stated that J. II. Fletcher, of
Vancouver, sold his entire output of
prunes, som thing over 70 000 pouuds,
in Portland for 7J ceuts per pound.
The bulk of his prunes were Italians.
Dr. J, R. Card well's crop of dried
prunes amounts to 30 tous and he es
thxutes that he would havo hud ten
tons more if it bad not beeu for the
' Tlib prune crop of Dr. Sharpies, at
Eugqtie, Or., amounted to 30 tons
when dried. The work of ovaporutlng
them was done under tho bupervialou
of L. A. Carson.
An Incidental advantage of thedovcl
opmeut of tho prune industry Is found
this year la the faot tbut the evapora
tors which were built fur drying prunes
are nearly all at work uow on apples.
Tho result will be u very greatly in
creased output of dried apples for which
there is fortunately an exceptional de
mand this year on account of the gen
eral failure of the apple arop throughout
Tho fact that Concord grapes are
shipped from western New York to
Portland, Or., us woll as to tho Bout d
cities, by the car load and retailed at 50
C6uts per basket Is worthy of ilio atten
tion of tho fruit growers of this count.
The baskets in whloh those gr.ipes are
Mold are called ten-pound baskets, but
In reality tbey hold a
lght pound of yrapc,
Jlttlu less than ,
Th adoption I
of this style of boskets proved a great!
boon to the Eastern grape growers.
Tbe grapes keep well in them and they
are very bandy for purchasers. Nearly
everywhere from the Mississippi valley
east the retail price of these baskets of
grapes is about 25 cents.
It Is evident that tbe boom In the
prune growing industry which Oregon
bos been experiencing for Botne years Is
about to be succeeded by an apple boom.
The fame of Oregon's apples has spread
irom ine voiumuiau expuumuu iuucij
part of the United States, and already
strangers are arriving wbo'are looking
for suitable locations for planting out
apple orchards. It is absolutely certain
that Oregon Is going to become one of
trarllner states In the nrdduction of
winter apples. While small orchards,
composed of many varieties, will not be
apt to yield very much profit, commer
cial orchards, which can supply each
Variety raised in carload lots, will be
apt in the Jong run to average up as
much, if not more, profit in proportion
to investment and expenses os any
other kind of fruit. The danger of au
over sunnlv of winter apples Is too
small to be figured on.
ABOUT PAKTY PAPERS.
The Statesman is at some trouble to
explain that In politica it is alway
Republican. Aside from bolting tbe
uomation of the Republican county
convention for the most important Re
publican county office at the last elec
tion this Is probably true. It Is so true
it is hardly news. It probably regrets
Its course as a bolter and takes tbU
method of announcing tbat hereafter It
will swallow the whole ticket and go
it blind, be it never so distasteful. It
means to repair its somewhat damaged
political reputation and let all know
that in future it will be a loyal party
irgan. Nothing can be done to shatter
us partisan deyotlon in future.
Th u Journal "needs to make no such
explanation. Its publishers are Repub
licans to tbe manor born, But tney
carry their sovereignity under their
hats and do not lay it down to any
power on earth. We prefer to be right
rather than partisan. We prefer good
government and tbe prosperity of tbe
people to party success In state or local
u flairs when it can only be bad at the
expense of tbe puoiic weal. A great
many Republican papers after Harrtsou
and Reid were defeated last year de
clared If tbey had It to do over again
they would not support Reid. The
Jouitw Ar, never endorsed Mr. Reid for
vie president and never recommended
the people to vote for him. If be were
nominated next time for president The
Journal would not consider itself
bound to support him. If would con
sider that duty to tho party would re
quire bin defeat and a blgberduty to
the country would require the lessou to
be taught that no such caudidate
should over be put up for tho suffrages
of tho people.
To bring the matter nearer heme: If
the crowd of corporation lobbyists' who
rati the last legislature, and one of
whose pass-peddlers was elected speak
er of one of the houses, should secure
coutrol of the next Republican state
convention and nominate themselves
or their tools for the voi'ous state of
fices In Oregon (which we do not think
tbey vl I do.) We should not considor
it good Republicanism to force their
services upon the people of this state.
If the people havo little or nothing to
say as to who shall be put up for office
they can at least have something to
say as to whom they may vote for at
HOP KEfOltr FitOjl UEKMANY.
We havo received the following spe
cial report on the Continent hop trade
from the German Society of tbe Hop
culture Alteustudt, Welssenburg, El
sas-iu, (Alsutla,) 6th October. Business
Is now more animated, a dreat deul of
the German crop was sold, although
our dealers did not buy us lively as ex
pcoted, what must bo assumed to their
Importuut purchasers In foreign cnuu
tries as much us to the finauclal diffi
cuttles or the commercial crisis. After
huvlug paid 180 to 100 marks the low
est price or Alsatian uopsisnow over
200 marks and 215 are freely paid for
choice. More business would be done
If growers were more willing to sell.
There are yet more irregular qualities
than was expected; In general, hops
shuw a good quality, but they don't
weigh. Today it Is geuerally admitted
that Abatis has not picked more that)
si:uuu cwts, una uermany uot more
than 200,000 cwts., ueedlng 820 to 350,
000. Belgium, France, Euclaud and
America have an average German Im
portatlou of 120,000 cwts. Norway,
.Sweden, Swltterlaud, Hollond und
other countries of about 60 80,000.
Austria exported lost year 30.000, Ad
mlttlug that Germany will have only
to supply the GO or 80,000 cwts. to the
smullor countries and that Austria ctn
spare this year 40,000 cwt. for export,
Germauy will want 140 to icb.000 cwts.
The proportion between hops dispos
able and wunts of the other couutrlo
om bo estimated highest
FnrBeslumat 40 000
U diet, States 80.000
00 to 49,000
10 000 bale of ISO lbs.
The German hop trade, which hat
Its ramifications in every couulry, does
not give very sure news upon tbe
growth and the situation of the trade.
Brewers confidently believe that enough
bops bad been picked for tbe supply ol
the season and await a depression of
the prices, whilst tbe German mer
chants pick up the whole crop pf Aus
trio, Hungary and the best qualities or
Belgium, Burgundy, and other coun
tries. The growers of these countries,
which bad better results than Germany
were intimidated by false reports of the
buyers and sold already a great part or
their crop. Germany gathered 716,
656cwts. In 1889, 304,170 in 1882, 487,
420 cwts. in 1890. 433,844 cwts. in 1891,
490,292 cwts. in 1892. It is impossible
tbat tbe enormous deficiency of this
year will not nave-consequences some
time in the season, but as long as brew
era and foreign merchants remain quiet
I do not expect that prices will rise
quickly. Latest news reports more
purchasers and a great part of the Ger
man crop is sold now.
Salem bos three dailies, two week
lies, two semi-monthly, besides any
number of advertising sheets to sup
port with subscriptions and advertise

decllues to place an advertisement In
The Journal because he says It would
.subject him to the begging appeals ond

tions. He thinks an advertisement
would be a good Investment In The
Journal and from a business stand
point. But he says it would be like
hanging out a sign of free meals for
trampe. It would encouraue a flood of
solicitations he is not prepared to meet.

much as in appeals for education, re

In Monterey, as well as Santa Clara
county, there grows a weed called
the rattlesnake weed. It is so named
from the story that when rattle
snakes get to fighting and bite each
other this weed, if eaten by them,
will prevent death. It grows about
six inches tall, has a red stalk and
slender leaves. On the top of the
stalk comes a head of flowers, and
the seeds of these flowers are said to
be very annoying to one in passing
through a mass of them, as they are
furnished with sharp barbs common
ly called stickers. The early settlers
who had herds of sheep always made
their herdsmen keep with them a
bottle of strong tea made of rattle
snake weed, and when any of the
sheep were bitten they were drenched
with this tea, which always 6aved
them. Pacific Tree and Vine.
