Wo rfro in receipt of the report of
the secretary of the Kiiuns Mate liounl
n agriculture for July 31M, from
uhirh we tuki'tho following extract & :
During the motitl of.luly ninny ail-vcrt-p
report, wrc received tit this of
fice concerning the yield of winter
wheat. The complaint 'coined general
that heavy tains accompanied by wind
storms :l1"' iniinediatcly lollmvcil by
(loudk-is f-kie and inl"ne heat, had
prevented the wheat from rilling prop
erly, and oauiug rti-t and blight. It
wa"s.reporteil al-o (hat the rain- and
iud heat ilou n the innk growths of
Miiali grain, and that a large per eettt.
of it v:i badly '"lodged" and could
not be harvested by machinery.
The i (tilt ot the compilation of the
rcport-i of over 100 corre-pondeiits
for the monlli of .Hily shows that
while Ihe adverse i-ondilioiis mention
ed above exi-lcd in the majority of
the counties, the injury to the Mate as
a whole Inn not been nearly so severe '
n has been anticipated. As compared
with the .lime e-timateri, then: i,:i loss
in the yield of thirty-three counties
gain iifl wi'iiU -eight, while the remain
der nineteen report the same aeie-
ajre jiclil that ihc did one month ago.
'1 hecountic-. haing the largest loss
are Mcl'hcf-on, from "5 to 111. and
Kono, itom 'J.ito 1H,mIiiIi all the conn
tics w et of Alc'herii incrcn (heir
former estimate1. The ,ounties bor
dering on the Male ot Misouri and
south ol the Kana- river also evper
ienced los- in ie!d from the ravayes
of chinch bugs a"' '" Cherokee a hot
southwestern wind at harvest time
caused a noticeable t-hrink.-igc in the
yield, and in the same county there
ns a larger per cent, ot chess
in wheat lields than in any
previous year. The varieties
inoi aflected by rust and
blight were May in Sumner, Kultx ami
May in the caM central comities and
Ittciaii or Turkey in Mcl'herson, Sa
line and Dickiu-ou. In the central
counties the eaily varities and Uiomj
-own call v were not injured aiiprccia-
blj, while the later aricties, and the
mu n lields, and c-pcci.dly that sown
in "Mall; iieId,"'Millered cbnMderably.
The 'oimtios lying cM of the merid
ian of Mcl'lier-on countv had no ad-ver-e
condition- to contend with, ex
cept lite lack ol harve-t hands and
machinery. The average yield for
this rcction would probably have been
from tuo to three bushels larger had
there been enough farm hands and
machinery to handle the grain grown.
A it i-, however, the western portion
of the Mate ha- M-cured the largest
wheat crop ever before grown in thai
section, ami the larmeis ol that re
gion aie entirely sati-lied with the re
sults of the wheat harve-l.
A.. I. l)ai-, of .Stockton, a corre
rcspoudent of Itookn county, say:
"I have heard of bill one field of wheat
that has fallen below twenty bliMieW
per acre. I li'ive reports from tliiny
fields that exceed thirty bushcN per
aere. I also have a repot 1 of one field
averaging lifly-one and one fourth
IiumicK wlucli will lie duly certified nl
the proper time." In Hu'-scll county,
one field of r00 acre- averaged thiri'y
bu-liels, and cMiaordinary yields are
reported from all of the western coun
ties. In the ea-lcrn portion of the
state, the counties Allen, Audcron,
Neosho, .Montgomery, K!k, Chautau
qua, Wil-on nuil Woodson have been
almo-t together free from the adverse
conditions mentioned belore, andhae
harve-ted an iiuii-iially large wheat
crop. (. C. .now, ofXeoho Kails, a
co-respondent fioiu Wood-on county,
and president of the Xeosho Valley
DiMricl Agricultural I'air A ociation,
sas: "All v;irietie- of winter wheat
have made I tie bet jields ever known
in this section. Hcnj. McWilliams of
Ibis coimly threshed nine and
one fourth acres, of Full, wheat
which made an average
yield of a little over I a bushels per
acre, .lo-eph Kobiii-on, nl-o of this
county, Ihrc-hod 'JO acies ofa variety
known as 'Ceimaii' that aveiaged Jtt

I have seen say Hint thuy have t!ire-h-

countv average will be over '28 biish-
eK lhaeoninv farm -15 acres of
Uiirsiau wheal that i- estiinated at
from 30 to .1," bti-hel- per acre."
Thre-hers report, in Montgomery
county, j ields of from 20 to 45 busjieis
per acre. A. (' Spillman. of Koxbury,
sjieakingof the lo- In yield in that
count , says: "The continued wet
weather ju-t preceding hare-t had n
blighting ellcct upon the late varieties,
especially Turkey, which i- a heavily
bearded," soft straw wheat, but as
thrc-bing prorreses the damage does
not seem so great as was feared. I
note Yields of Turkev all the wav
fromll to 30 bushels.""
Abstracts of a-scs-or' returns for
1S81 have been received from all of the
eigiiiy-oncorganimi couuiies, aim a
compilation of these gives an area of
winter wheat -own in tho Fall of 18S3,
of '2,109,673 acres. Of this area 17.805
w ere not harvested, having been des
troyed from freezing and other cau-c.
This is the smallest los ever noted in
the liUtorv of the Mate, being but a
little more than two-thirds of one per
cent. The area harvested was 2,151,
8.18 acres, from which an average yield
was obtained, as now estimated". f
21.7.1 bushels per acre, or a product
for the state of 4C,811,S85 bushels,
which is less than the June estimate
bv more than 1,000,000 bu-hels.
Tho area of spring wheat is iucrcas.
over that of last year C,162 acres, or
eight per cent. The average yield
per acre is 10.85. or larger thau that of
1883 bv over threo bushels. As will
be observed, by consulting the follow
ing table by counties, the area is con
fined almost altogether to the mem
bers of tho northern tier of counties.
This crop has been con-tantly declin
ing in area and importance during the
past five years, and will soon cea-c to
be cultivated by Kausa- farmers. Tho
product of spring wheat ndded to
that of winter wheat gives a total
wheat product in the state of 18,248,
The area sown in the fall of 1883
was less than that sown the previous
vear bv 16.015 acres making an area
for this year of 301,893 acres. Of this
ares 5.29 acres were winter killed
leaving au area of 299,604 acres to pas
ture and harvest. Ten per ccnL'of
this area was devoted entirely to" pas
ture, and did not make a crop. The
lack of proper machinery and the
want of farm laborers at harvest
time caused at least 15 per cent of
the crop to remain uncut. The area
harvested was 256,162 acres, which
made an average yield of 22 bushel
per acre, or a slate product of 5,635,
The crop was n successful one in
nearly all portions of the state, especi
ally in the west and northwest, where
it is both sure and profitable. In the
portions mentioned this crop has
made a good average yield each year,
and is looked upon by the farmers as
reliable and sure.
The area of bailey increased as com
pared with the area of last year about
SO per cent, or from 15,583 acres in
1883 to 20,672 acres this year. There
has been every evidence from year to
year that barley can be grown success
fully in Kansas, but the crop has never
attained such proportions that it might
properly be styled one of the field
crops of the stale. While yields have
been satisfactory, the market for this
cereal has been such that profits have
been small, and barley has iu, conse
quence given place to ether crops that
have proved more remunerative. The
yield this year for the -state is 28.11,
being five bushels in excess of the
yield of last year. The counties having
more than 1.000 acres in barley are :
Norton, Pawnee aud Phillips.
The area planted to corn decreased
as compared with last year 107,262
acres, the state area for 1884 being 4,-
515,908 acres. Notwithstanding tin;
unfavorable condition in the spring,
the lateness of planting and the unus
ual amount of replanting, the crop is
now in much better condition limn it
was last year at this time. In most
portions of the state it was very near
ly a far advanced on August 1st- as it
was at the same time last year. The
weather of July, while not favorable
to the harvesting of small grain, lelt.
little to be desired as regards the corn
crop. There was an abundance of
moistorc everywhere, and the temper
ature was exceedinulv favorable to
the growth of the plant. The cast
central portion of the state, and :i few
counties in the south cential are not
so far advanced as other sections, but
have indications now favorable to a
better condition. The general
condition is ten per cent, in e-ce-3
ot last year, mid ihere i
every prospect ihnt the crop will yield
better thau it did in 1883. The ev -treine
western counties repcri fine
condition, while la-t year at this lime
the failure of the crop was Icfinilely
dctei mined in that section.
The east, central and northeaileiii
counties report a very ioor crop of
oats as compared with what the con
dition of a mouth ago promised. I'.x
cesive rains and high temperature
caused it to "rust," and heavy winds
!:lc;v down the rank straw so mat il
wa- diflicult to cut. The other por
tions of the state report a good ield,
and in some of the western counties a
very heavy yield. The erago for
the state is 35.22, a falling off from the
large crop of 1883 of nearly 10 bushel
ler acre. The area as compared with
that of last year increased over 12 per
cent., or 80,255 acres, giving a state
urea of 780,831 acres. The total yield
for the state is 27,499,403 bushels.

His record as governor shows where
his associations and sympathies are
and no man who is hostile to labor
should ever be elevated to the presi

To ll,t y.dilor of the Daily Jtylr:
in tins year ot grace men are eman

of parly slavery. The pro-Engli-h ar

How any working man c.i consis

cord as governor of New York slate.
Elected governor by u tidal wave of
reform he-vetoed every inea-ure which
tended to elevate the working cl.i e.

of an arrogant railroad corporation.
The i casoii assigned for hi action on
this question in phiu words i-. if
Jay (SonM, Vanderbilt or any other
millionaire buy up n legislature no'
future legislation can undo their work.
He was a railroad lawyer for yeais,
and as governor gave us the cm pora

nature of contracts which cannot he

parlies. The constitution of tin stale
of New York declares that the charter
of every corporation shall be held -object
to alteration from time to lime or
repeal by the law-making power.
Cleveland showed by his acts that he
is tho enemy of labor aud the friend
corporate selfishness and greed. The
railroad question will, iu the next four
years, be the great question, and the
working man, who by word or action
assists or helps that moral leper,

cecration of the toiling ma e

who could veto the mechanics lien law,
a inea-ure designed to give labor Ihe

cannot be truthfully contradicted, that
