John Harris, a Gaston, Yamhill
county, farmer, thinks the condition of
his crops Is a fair criterion of Willamette valley fruit, grain, hay and hop
prospects this season. "I have 3,000
prune trees, 6 years old," he said, "and
I will not have a hatful of prunes; off
500 apple trees which have long been
ln full bearing, I will not obtain a
bushel of apples. Early pears are gone,
but the late varieties will yield well;
cherries are dropping off the trees in
a blighted condition, and will therefore
not come up to recent expectations.
Hops, however, were never In better
condition, and the market appears to
be favorable this year. In 1898 6 cents
was all a hopralser could obtain on
contract, but this year buyers are offering as high as 11 cents. My hay and
grain never looked better at this season, and I expect a full crop."

(Jnigg lay on a bed surrounded by friends

eur to ear, the windpipe being completely
severed, and there were four terrible
wounds in the abdomen, where the desperate man had driven the blade of his

At the home of John Bishop, a few hun
dred yards distant, lay the two victims of

and their bodies horribly mutilated, but
both alive and conscious.
In a room on the first floor Mrs. Carroll
was found surrounded by neighbors. She
was resting easily, w ith her neck, head and
arms swathed in bandages. Her throat
had received a terrible gash five inches
in length, extending clear across in front,
but neither the jugular vein nor windpipe
was severed. The knife blade had been
driven through her right cheek and had
cut a gash four inches long and to the
bone on the top of her head. Tlie infuriated man had also driven the cruel blade
entirely through her right forearm, a fe.v
inches above the wrist. She was not suffering much when seen, and gave a good
account of the terrible affray.

engineer wailed 15 minutes for the one

Washington, D. C, July 3.—As a result
0f the investigation made by the war derailment, it uiay bc coulldently stated
that ihe anny canteen is practically u
permanent establishment. All the officers
,,f ihe department are thoroughly Uied of
uonlroversy which has hud in it much
that has heen disagreeable and Adjutant
(lenerttl t'orhin stutes thut he now consider, the matter as definitely settled.
The opinions of over 000 army ofllcers
Wcre nsked as to the advisability of continuing the canteen system, whicli it was
decided hy the attorney general the
uui department hnd the right to do, de-
ipite the paragraph in the army bill passed
al the last session of congress, which
lhe temperance people are anxious to have
construed that no beer or any mult liquor
shall he sold ut any army pott or upon
anv government reserve. The replies of
the army otlicers whose opinions were
asked are almost unanimously in favor jf
continuing the canteen system, as being
better for the morals of the soldiers them
wives. It was at first thought that these
replies would bc given to the public as .t
soit of defense of the department against
lhe attacks of the temperance people, hut
now it has beeu considered unnecessary
and Inadvisable to do so, as still further
stirring up a controversy that could have
no good result. Acting Secretary Meikeljohn at leust, decided not to do it, and
Secretary Alger has not hud time to take
the mutter up since his return.
It probably is not generally known outside of the department of war itself how
great has been the hue and cry raised hy
the advocates of prohibition against the
wiling of beer at anny posts, and loud,
long und continuous hnve lieen the demands made upon the president that he
should is*ue an executive order forbidding

One hears often discussed the propriety of those not working miners belonging to  the  Miners' Union.     Io
Saudon, on Wednesday evening,   Mr.
Stocklmro,    president    of the   Union
there, pointed   out  that some o!  the
most active of the  directorate of th.)
Mino Owners' Associatio n lmd   not n
cent invested in  tho  Province.     Besides these, all know other, who, if not
in thia  M. O. A.,   would   like  to he,

was entirely out of place to request my

Now Mr. Semlin, having dealt with the
three reasons given by you fur asking
my resignation I bej$ to repeat in writing
what I stated to you on Saturday that]
did nut propose to resign my position in
the cabinet and 1 charge that the reasons
given by you are only pretences aud
that you have been induced to ask fir
my resignation by Mr. Cotton, that you
and Mr. Cotton have entered into a cou-
spiuicy to wreck lhe present government
and drive from it all the Liberal,9 with
the idea of forming a Conservative government.
I am informed and believe that you
have already negotiated with Mr. Helmcken and Mr. Hignius with a view of
their entering a government of this kind.
I kuow that you havo not consulted
either Dr. McKechnieor Mr, Hume with
regard to  asking  for   my   resignation.

party. That caucus had been adjourned
for liml express purpose. In the mean*
tit,,,, y.m bad heen called upon to torm
an administration, und bad done so as I
contended in defiance of your obligations
to ymir supporters. When the caucus
took place a motion approving of your
course was proposed and withdrawn us
it could get no support. It was
intended then that a vote should be
taken as to who should bo tho leader
of tbe party. You, however, stated
that if you were not confirmed in your
position as Premier, you would resign
from the house. j\b at that ti'iio we bad
only a tiinjotity ol one, wo could not
afford to lose a single supporter, and
you were therefore in n position to compel ns lo accept your terms,
In doing so you were distinctly informed by a number ol members present
that they only agreed to retain you as
Premier because Ihey were forced by
your actions to do sn, and vou were distinctly informed that the matter was
simply allowed to stand until the party
became strong enough to deal with the
question upon its merits, You are.
therefore, the Premier of this province

my resignation yon do not ccminand ft

upon (his point is correct, then, instead
ut me resigning from tlie government,
it is your duty to take that step nt once.
If you have any doubt ns to whether
my statement is correct or nol that doubt
can be dispelled by cullin. n pnucii" of
tho government supporters forthwith,

of Mr. Cotton   and   yourself  is   in   my
opinion a gross outrage upon the electcrs
weie expressly Ignored by the late gov
eminent and lhe present government
parties in thu last general election.
While it appears that there are in ths
present HoOBO a majority of Conservatives that is a mere accident and tbey
Were nol elected as such. Eor you therefore to attempt to form 11 government
which would depend for i's support upon
these gentlemen, v,*ho happen t j bu Conservatives, would, it. appear..) to me
entirely nullify Iho vote which took
place on July Dili, lust, I feel ealidicd
that your attempt to carry out a conspiracy eft li is nature will not meet with
success. At nny rate you can depend ou
upon every effort being made by me to
frustrate il, and I feel certain that tl e
Conseivaiivus of the province who voted j
for the late opposition will be entirely
opposed to any such attempt. 1 have
urged you to call the supporters of the
government ill tlie House together in
caucus, to consider the Deadman'n Island question, whicli has created such an
agitation in the city of Vancouver. I
think that course should still be adopted
and I think in addition that it is absolutely necessary now that our ki,pi>oiter.-i
should be called together lo determine
whether your course in calling lor iny
resignation is in accordance with their
wishes, li it ie I am prepared at once
to resign, bnt I protest against your
right to ask for my resignation.
You are as a matter o: fact, the premier ol tbis province, but you are well
aware ol the circumstances under which
you obtained tbat position. At a caucus
which took place of government supporters in Vancouver, iihortly alter the
formation of a government, il was intended that tho members should elect
