WHEAT CROr IN THE NORTHWEST. I
The Total Yield In Minnesota nnd Dakota
Will be Abont 80,000,000 Hnahels.
(BTECIAL TO THE EVENIXO W0HLD.1
St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 29. Tho rioncer.
Press prints the following t The wheat crop
In Minnesota and Dakota has been a subject
of much speculation. An estimate of the
crop, based on reports from correspondents
in every wheat-growing county in tho State
and Territory, Is therefore given to-day. Iu
May last an cstimato of the crop, based on
reports from tho snmo correspondents, pave
tho total as 85,000,000 and 90,000,000. Tho
bases of tho acreage for Minnesota aro tho
figures furnished by II. Stockonstrom, Ab.
sistant Secretary of Stato and Statistician,
whoso report is made up from assessors' ro.
ports. There is no doubt-that these reports
aro under the mark this year.
Tho average yield por ncro in this Stnto on
tho present crop 1b twelvo and one-half bush
oIb, which, on 3,046,000 acres (Mr. Stockcn
strptn's report), would yield 38,085,000 bush
els. In Dakota, until the present year, there
has been no means of obtaining official fig
uros on acreage. Tho 1'ioneer.Press has ro.
lied on its own figures for sovernl years, and
has found thorn to bo, in tho main, correct.
The increase in acreage this year is about
four hundrod thousand, making n total of
8,075,000. Tho nvcrago yield per acre is fif
teen and ono-half bushels, making the total
crop 47,662,000. This means a total crop
for Minnesota nnd Dakota ot 85,747,000, or
86,000,000 in round numbers.
The present crop of Minnesota is 8,710,000
bushels less than the crop of 1880, reported
by the State Department, and about 4,000,000
less than tho amount given by tho Washing,
ton Bureau. The amount hold by tho form
ers at tho beginning of tho present crop
year, while very difficult to estimate, prob
ably did not exceed 2,000,000 bushels. Thero
was in store in MinnoopoliB, St. Paul and
Duluth Aug. 1 5,800,000 more, which, added
to tho crop of 80,000.000, makes n total of
93,600,000, or 94,000,000 in round numbers, ns
the available resources for all purposos.
The Minneapolis mills will need 30,000,000
bushels before the next crop.

visit tho town only to fly from it.
For nearly two months tho great output of
Lohigh coal has ceased to rumble over tho

On the other hand the men declare that they
will never return to work at tho old rato.
Meanwhile complaints are pouriug into tho j
headquarters of coal combinations from all J
parts of tho country east of tho Rocky Moun-
tains about tho scarcity of coal. New Eng- J
land is clamoring for ft, though the retailers
nre asking from $3 to $5 a ton more than has J
been charged for ton years. t
Even higher prices obtain out West, and
the coal barons, with the powerful aid of the j
railroads, aro shrewd enough to rush all the ,
anthracite coal thoy can in that direction $
before navigation closes. New York and'the i
East is tho sufferer by these tactics. Retail-
ors in the coal trade Lore anticipato great in- '
