The many reports of failures go to prove that McKinley's slection on a gold standard platform was not what the country needed. We might fill our paper full of accounts of failures and re ports of existing troubles. In fact it is far worse than in the panic of '93, only the people have got used to it somewhat and do not notice it quite so much . Farmers who before election were getting eighteen cents for corn and expected to get twenty-five or thirty if McKinley was elected are now selling for eight and ten cents, and hogs are going about the same way. The army of idle men are daily increasing and the chaitable institutions are already overwhelmed with ap plications for assistance. Perhaps some of the people will learn something by this year's ex perience. If not, then it is a hepeless case. THE DAWN. ELLENSBURG, WASH., SATURDAY, JANUARY 30, 1897.

State Dairy Commissioner P. J. Smith in his last report to the gov ernor sums up the product of the creameries in this state as follows: Butter 1,838,657 lbs.; Cheese, 554,123 lbs. At 20 cents a pound the butter J worth $367,681 and the cheese at ten j cents per pound $55,412. It will be of interest to the people here to note the productions of the creameries of Ellenshurg and vicinity. Below is a table showing the product for 1896: Klleneburg creamery,... .76,631 lbs Spring creek " 112,813" Jacob Bowers'" 8,150 " Kinkaid " 10,650 " Banders' " 4,000 " Ola Moea " 6,631 " T.

This amount is nearly clear cash to the producer, that is, dairy products arc almost entirely labor products and the re turns are constant and sure. Dairy ing is hard work but one of the saf est of industries. WE FEEL HONORED. The reform editors of the state of Washington had a meeting recently in the city of Olympia and R.
