There are people who say that prune
growers realizing not more than -\ cents
a pound for their crop found it more
profitable than raising wheat. It might
be true, but at the same time there is a
job on the man'ahands who attempts to
convince the wheat man of anything
like that. The wheat man grows wheat.
It costs him much money bur, v small
amount of labor.
That man Bryan never has yet made
a success of anything he has taken un
der his wing. Just now he is going to
start a paper. There are several hun
dreds of Bryan enthusiasts in Whitman
county who are sure to send their money
away from home to swell his already fat
exchequer. But they should remember
that Mr. Bryan made an unsuccessful
congressman, a mighty poor editor on
the Omaha World-Herald, and an abso
lute failure as a presidential candidate.
From all parts of the country conies
the cry that railroad facilities are in
sufficient to meet the demands of trade;
there i* a scarcity of cars. This may be
largely due to the fact that manufactur
ers of railway equipment have been so
busy attending to foreign orders that
they have been forced to neglect in a
measure the home market. At any rate
the demand is an good that there seems
little prospect of a reduction in prices of
steel rails or any other of the important
items figuring in railway building and
maintenance. This is a matter of sup
ply and demand. Populism do<*n not in
fluence the price, but demand runs prices
up where no demand would run them
down. The people are peculiar. If they
want not, they buy not, and all the pop
ulist laws born and unborn will not
change their nature.
The organization of the Eastern Well

tural Association, the preliminary steps
of which were taken some months ago,

of Farming-ton, in a move in the ritrht
direction. In no other way can the
fruit growers of the Inland Empire grow
Crops to perfection and market their
product* to the bent advantage, In the
preliminary organization General Tan
natt was chosen president and \V. E.
Hawley of the Spokane chamber of com
merce secretary. The firnt annual meet
ing of the association is to be held next
month at Spokane, but the exact date
has not yet been decided upon. Kx
euTHion rates on all railways are to be
given, and every orchard owner, or
those interested in the development of
the fruit industry, are invited to be
present. Fruir growers will be well
entertained, aud instructive scientific
papers will be presented by competent
authorities, from which an interchange
of ideas may be had.
There ie one point in the bankruptcy
law which ie* Dpi kindly taken by the
creditor. It has proven so unpopular
and has such little common sense or
fairness that there would be nothing
amiss in its repeal or amendment, even
though a national law. That is the sec
tion "elating to payments on account
within four months of the period of de
claring bankruptcy. Courts in general
have sustained the ruling that payments j
of this character must be surrendered
by n creditor and go into the general
asset fund if he would share in the dis
tribution of those assets. It makes it
pretty bard on the creditor who accepts
a payment on account in good faith, not
having any idea that the debtor was
approaching bankruptcy, and then to
learn four months after that he must
surrender the payment or be shut out of
any possibility of getting more of his I
claim. It often places him in a position
of indecision, as he cannot tell how the
assets are goicg to pan out and whether
it were better to give up the payment or

liiiral Free Mail Delivery.
Palouse fanners sre becoming much
interested in rural free mail delivery. It
will bring them in daily touch with the
great world, and they want it.
( >ue of the must interesting feature <>f
the annual report of Postmaster Gen
eral Smith jh ihat which relates t <> rural
free delivery of mail matter. There
have been striking advances in the pos
tal service in the past, liut, in the opin
ion of Mr. Smith, the extension of rural
free delivery during the pant two years
has been the most salient, significant
and far-reaching feature of postal de
velopment in recent times, says the Post
Intelligencer. He thinks that to under
take the personal and free delivery of
mail at the isolated farm houses on the
remote country roads marks what in this
widely extended land amounts to a new
departure in the postal service. It
means what is the upsetting of the old
theory that the man should go for the
mail instead of the mail going to the
Free delivery in rural communities
was at one time thought to be too cost
ly and burdensome to be practicable. On
these grounds the movement met with
great opposition when Brat proposed,
and even when congress authorized the
experiment there was reluctance in try
ing it. It took time and experience to
develop the more just view: firat, that
the great body of people who live out
side cities and towns are entitled to
share in advanced mail facilities, even if
the cost exceeds the returns; and second,
that the harrier of unbalanced expense
is not as formidable as was apprehended.
The postmaster general says that ru
ral free delivery has now been sufficiently
tried to measure its effects. It has stim
ulated Hocial and business correspon
dence and in this way swelled the posr>il
receipts. ItH introduction haw invari
ably been followed by n large increase in
circulation of the press and periodical
literature. The farm has thus been
brought into direct daily contact with
the movementH of the business world.
A more accurate knowledge of ruliDg
markets and varying prices has been
diffused, and the producer, with bis
quicker communication and larger in
formation, enjoys advantages never he
fore known. Good roads have become
indispensable, and their improvement is
the essential condition of the service.
The material and measurable benefits
are signal ami unmistakable.
Mr. Smith think* thar rural free de
livery is here to stay. Ir cannot be
abandoned where it has been established
and it cannot be maintained without be
ing extended. Those who en joy its ad
vantages will not consent to surrender
them, and every new route creates a de
mand from contiguous territory for sim
ilar privileges. The government it*
therefore confronted with the problem of
gradually extending the system over the
whole area of the country where it in
physically feasible or where the popula
tion in not ho sparse as to make it un
The government is now carrying the
postoffice to the doors of 31,000,000 of
people massed in the towns and cities.
The work of the future is the more com
plicated tank of carrying the postoffice
to the doors of about 21,000,000
of people scattered over L,000,000 square
miles of territory, England, France and
Germany make rural frte delivery, tin ir
postmen going on foot. But England
coutaifs only about 50,000 square
miles, France about 200,000 square
miles, and Germany but a little more.
The United States is now covering uiih
rural delivery an area larger than Eng
and it has been accomplished within tin
past two years. By the end of the cur
rent fiscal year one-sixth of these 21,
--000,000 country people will be enjoying
a delivery service. In July, 1899, there

were ,'l9l nirii delivery routes i;i opera
tion. Within the fiscal year, under an
appropriation <f $450,000, this number
was increased to 1,214. In July the ap
propriation of $1,750,000 became avail
able, and last month 2.614 routes had
been established, which aggregated 61,
--979 miles in length, covering 66,842
sipmre miles, divided among forty-four
states and territories, and serving n
population of L,801,524 The number

carried to the doors of not less than
3,500,000 people in the rural districts.
The postofflce department estimates
that the rural free delivery can be ex
tended practically over the whole coun
try at an annual cost of less than $14
000,000. This would really mean the
delivery of mail mutter at about every
door in the land. This assumes that
the eosf shall not exceed the present rare,
»nd, with rigorous restraint, the expend
itures for I his service can be restricted
to fixed boundaries where the revenue

general maintains that the great result
of carrying the postoffice to every home,
if it can be accomplished at a cost com
paratively so small, is a work that is
well worth undertaking.
