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.

REPORT OF THE STATE
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
Klleneburg creamery,... .76,631 lbs
Spring creek " 112,813"
Jacob Bowers'" 8,150 "
Kinkaid " 10,650 "
Banders' " 4,000 "
Ola Moea " 6,631 "
T. Houser " 3,000"
T. Haley " 85,000 "
T. Jossem " 2,500 "
Schnebly " 20,120 "
Hollenbeck " 22,000 "
Nanum " 10,803 " I:
Nanum " 30,000 " '
At '20 cents per pound this would
bring the Kittitas valley the snug
little sum of $67,434. 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.
