The president indicated some time
ago that he would take this action
unless the Nelson amendment, is
adopted. This amendment required
the people of Arizona, as a condition
to statehood, to vote down the pro

simply requiring a vote to be taken

of Some Crops July a
Withering Month. t
Washington, D. C, Aug. 9 That a
tremenduous decline in the condition
of crops, general throughout the coun
try. Is indicated by reports and estima
tes made today by the monthly crop
report of the department of agriculture.
The report is the worst, as to the
general conditions that the department
has issued in any single montii since
The area most seriously affected ex
tends from Pennsylvania westward,
embracing all the great, corn, wont. ami
hay- producing states to the-Rocky-mountains.
In the southern states, with the ex
ception of Virginia and North Carolina,
ample-rains served to maintain general
ly favorable conditions. Conditions In
the Pacific northwest are regarded an
excellent, although during July that
territory suffered in a brief and ex
cessively hot period.
The figures of today's report indi
cate a material slump in the prospects
of all crops. Corn, which at this sea
son is mo3t important, declined daring
the month from a condition of about
5 per cent below the average to nearly
fifteen per cent below. This does not
indicate however, that the crop will
not be large because the acreage of
corn this year Is exceptionally heavy.
The weather during July caused a fall
in the condition of corn which Indi
cates a loss of 336,000,000 bushels from
the estimated total production of tho
Spring weat fell from the condition
of a month ago, is per cent below the
average, to approximately 27 per cent
below, indicating a loss of 35,2S6,00
bushels. The indications are that the
total yield of wheat iper acre will
the lowest since 1901. The oats crop "
is very short, according to the figures
of today's report. The crop of hay
probably will be the smallest in IS
years. The condition of potatoes in
dicates a loss of about 35,64S,008 bush
els from last month's estimated yleW.
While crops in many instances will
probably be short in yield per acre, yet
in the total production they will not
be small, as shown by following esti
mates of yields of standard crops:
Corn 2,620,221,000 bushels, winter
wheat 4,"3,149,000 bushels, spring wheat
