Col. D.l*. Jenkins, who, for many years, lived
in Seattle, now a wealthy resident of Spokane,
lias brought suit against the Northern L'acitic
railroad at that place for the recovery of land
donated by him as right-of-way in the city limits
on the north side, on the grounds that the com
pany has forfeited its rights by neglecting to
run trains for a year over the road. One of the
points in the contract was that the company
should erect and keep open a depot on Monroe
streat. This the company lias not done during
the year the road was id'e. The laud is very
valuable and the suit will prove an interesting
one. Mr. Jenkins claims (£O,O damages for
the failure of the company in not putting in a
s:d» track, as agreed, the return of the land nnd
the #700;) specified in the contract for th-- failure
; to maintain the depot.

H. H. Griffin, a sturdy old farmer liv

! wild ride down First street Saturday

!of frightened horses. The team became
} unmanageable as Mr. Griffin turned the
corner at Coonradt's grooerv, and fairly
| Hew down the street. Before reaching
JBartlett street the tongue dropped
down. As the team crossed the side
walk within a foot of the band 6taud the
tongne went under the walk and broke

several feel in the air. Bui on they
j wen! for thirty yards, when one of the
horses fell and the jig was up. The old
gentleman took a frightful spin and was
lucky to escape unhurt. The damage
'to tiio buggy amounted to a broken

The body oE the unfortunate Peter
Paulus, who was drowned last spring at
I Zirngibl & Sherman's mill, was found
• Sunday evening, says the News. The
I remains were discovered by Goodwin
i Wrighi about .1 mile and a hali below
j the mill in a slough between a small
island and the west bank of the river.
I When the nver is high the.water flows
! through ibis slough. The body drifted
into it but was caught by the thick
underbrush which arches over the nar
i row passage. The remains were badly
decomposed. The head had rotted away
from the body and the trunk was only
heid together by the clothes. The
j coroner was notitied but did not consid
!ei an investigation necessary so the
body was buried Monday.

On Friday last as Thomas Liddle wa6 ',

Few people realize what the produc- j
j tiyo capacity of Whitman, the banner '
agricultural county of Washington, is, j
' sa\s the Garfleld Enterprise. Under'
; the present system of utilizing its re- I
sources it is now probably producing I
I one-half of what it is capable of doing, |
but whi large farms are subdivided,
| fruit is grown more extensively, and the '.
' country is in a more thorough state of ;
cultivation, tho increase will be many
fold. This year the county will export
about $8,760,500, divided as follows :
10,000,000 bushels of whe-it at 75 cents,
87,500,000; 800,000 bushels of barley at
50 cents, 8400,000; 500,000 bushels of \
.oats at 50 cents, 8250,000; 100,000]
\ bushels of flax at $1, 8100,000: 150.000 I
bushels of potatoes at 50 cents, 875,000;
! 500 tons of fruit at $40, $20,000; 2,500 |
j horses at $75, $187,500; 3,000 head of
j cattle at 820. 860,000; 10,000 mutton
| sheep at $2, $20,000; 300,000 pounds of
; wool at 16 cents, $48,000; butter, eggs j
! and vegetables to the amount of 8100,- j
i 000. This is the product of the county |
i when it is but half developed, and the j
; part that is put to use is but imper
fectly so: yet but few counties in I
America can surpass it, and when the j
resources of the county are fully util
ized it will scarcely have a peer between
tho Atlantic and Pacific.
Preparations are now being made to
i place the school land, one luile east of i
Moscow, upon the market in October. j
1 Since Moscow had its birth a portion of
this school section has beeu used as a
cemetery for the city and adjacent coun
try. It is now proposed to divide this
property up into tea-acre los, with
! streets eighty feet wide, and thus dis- j
j pose of it to the highest bidder, $10 per
acre being the lowest amount the state
will receive for its lands. A cemetery
association is now being formed to se
cure a traot of this land, forty acres at
the very least, plat it into cemetery lots.
I dispose of such lots at a reasonable
valuation, convert all profits into im
provements for the. cemetery, as tree
setting, making beautiful drives and ;
j walks, and, in fact, making our cemetery
| a beautiful home of the dead. When
I this sale takes placo any person who
! would co far forget himself as to enter j
■in any rivalry by bidding against the
, cemetery association would ba one not
1 deserving the name of a man, or en-1
■ titled to a place in manhood. We are I
: satisfied that there are none among us
'of that disposition.' Of the association'
we learn thnt care will be exercised in
selecting trustees, who are men of prob
ity, excellent judgment, and thoroughly
reliable and honest. This is a move,
coming at last, thnt has beeu looked
forward to for many years -the making
of a beautiful homo for our dead.—Star.
The \> heat Outlook.
Every computation made shows tho
wheat crop of Europe is far short of the
average this year, while our crop i.s an
excellent one. There will, therefore, be
a very strong demand made on us for
food products for the coming year. and '
our market is sure to be active. The
gold that has been going away to Europe i
;in sui'li a prodigious stream for some
months past, must soon come back, and
tho indications are that it will come far
more rapidly than it went away.
William E. Bear, of New Fork, has J
lately published a summary of the crop ;
conditions in all the wheat producing
countries. Mr. Uear is reported to bo a
yery conservative statistician, and his
; figures have attracted very general at
tention in the east. He finds that the
crops in all the wheat-exporting coup- ',
' tries of the old world, without exception, \
is far below the average. The figures i
showing the probable export for these
countries for this year are as follows:
Austro Hungary 8,000,000
Ronmanin I JJ0,000,000
Bulgaria and Servia 12.000,000
The countries which usually imported
wheat will require a much larger supply
than heretofore, the total demand for
the year being estimated as follows:
United Kingdom 145,000.000
Spain anil Portugal 16,000,000
Other countries 82,000,000
Then^ is=. therefore, the enomous de
liciency of 183,000,000 bishela to bo ex- j
ported from America. The principal de
pendence, of course, will be upon the
United Slates, for the South American
countries, although famous wheat grow
crn, have but little forexpoit when com- ;
p;ired with the vast whole. The maxi
mum export of Chili is about 2,500,000
bushels, and that of the Argentine Re
public a little over 8,000,000 bushels, po
that the United States and Canada will
have a foreign market this year for near
ly 178,000,000 bushels of wheat. The
greatest export from the United States I
for any one year since 187 V) was 1~>3,000,
--[ 000 bushels, which was exported in 1880.
lln 1881 the export \v:is 151.000,000; in
1883, 106,000,000; in 1887, 102.000.000.
In other years the total export varied
from 50,000,000 to 95.000,000 bushels.
It seems cle;ir, therefore, that large as
our crops are in nearly eveiv part of
our country, there will* be a strong de
mand for every busUe'i for export, and at
j ractioajiy our own prices.
