A GRAND CROP YEAR,
Corn and Wtaont YlJldof 3.000,000,
000 Bushols Treasury Hurrylnu
Notos to Pay.tho Freight.
With the prospect that more than 3,ik"0,
OOO.Oikj bushels ot corn and wheat will havo
to be moved to market this fall, the trea
sury officials aie seriously considering the
situation in regaid to tho circulating pie
dlum that will bo required for the under
taking. It Is appal cut from the figures
published by the agrlcultutal depni tinont
csteiday that the corn and wheat ciops
alone will exceed by nearly l,(O,0il,00i
bushels the crop of last year. Tho e'rop
of other grains Is also phenomenally large.
Secretary hhaw said that tho treasury
was making preparations to meet the de
mand for small notes, such as will be coll
ed for In the western bnnklng centres to
meet tho expenses of the crop-movlns
period. I'nlted States Treasurer Roberts
said that tlie treasury was nover better
equipped to me-et these demands thnn
now, and tiiat thu outlook was most en
couraging, with no sign of distressing
stringency In the money market.
Two years ago when the corn crop was
very large tho crop moving season was
a period of great stringency In the money
ccnties. Last year, on account of tho scv--ere
midsummer drought, the com crop
was light, and tho season of moving crops
passed without any seero tax upon the
country's circulating medium. Now tho
prospect is that the corn crop will lie n
record bie'aker, while the wheat crop is
certainly above the nicrago. The treasury
Is better prepared to meet the fituatinn,
however, and the prospect Is that the
money stringency will bo much less severe
than In 3 we).
Hie preparations for this crop-moving
teas-oil hne been going on for nearly a
year. In anticipation of large crops th
treasury has had a Inrgo number of
notes of small denomination printed, and
the Inoiv.isul output from the bureau nf
eirrav!ng and printing lias gone on s'o
stendllj that tbe total volume of paper
inonrj on hand Is now JS91,CS0,ni, as
against J.'i.'G.JM.iliO. The number of separ
ate pieces of paper mono on June :;i, line,
was 1 J, tL'l.ono, as against 87,111, 0J a year
ago; so the Increase is seen to bo largelj in
lieues 01 small denominations.
lilpmenls of paper currency of small
denominations are now being made from
tho treasury to Chicago and other money
centres in inu west ncijncont to the crop,
shipments of this kind have amounted to
nreiai. During this calendar year the

There Is a sightly unfavoiablo sign, how

about Rftm.oiM, This is regarded! us onlv
a drop lu the bucket, when tho great vol

recent Orange caucus for the election of
delegates to tho Stato convention that Is
unequalled. At least two of the nflldavlts
are from the most prominent citizens of
that town. They show that money was of
fered and In some cases paid by supporters
of Clement for votes In the caucus, and
riot only lh.it, but an attempt was made
to secure the vote of a man who was to
be elected a McCllllough delegate to the
Stale convention. The attempt failed.

remembered that there was a contest over.
the seating of tho Clement delegate from
Orange in the State convntitloii, the claim
being made that he had been fraudulently
elected. The delegate was unseated,
l'our of the uftidavlls are as follows:

with one Oscar i'eako awhile, and while I
was in the barn, approached me and said:
"I understand that you nru going to be
one of the delegates for McCullough." I
told him that was the understanding. Hi
wanted te know how much 1 would take to
go Into the caucus and let the McCullough
and Clement men vof for me., to elect me
as a delegate, and then go to the State
convention and vote for Clement for gov
ernor: he said that ho was ordered to pay
any amount that was necessary and for
mo to namo my price, and that I ne ed not
bo afraid as he had plenty of money to
pay me. I told him that neither ho nor
Clement hud money enough to buy my
vote, and he then said: "Wei don't want
tmv hard feelings about this." And then
I told him he didn't want to undertake to
taiv mv vote, and ho then said: "Don'l
say anything about this to anyone, let it
go as tt Is."
1 further depose that a week from the
Sunday following tho Sunday after tho

Oscar Peake In Orange, and that Mr.

Charles Mills, that said Smith spoke to
him nnd ask-d Mr. Peake if he supposed
that he. Smith, could buy Mr. flnnder's
vote over on to th" Clement side, that he,
Peake-, did not think so, but that he could
try.
I further depoe that I was at the cau

Clement delegates, that their votes were
challenged, and that they were asked
whether they were republicans, and they
said they were democrats, and always had
been democrats, and that they had a right
lo vote and were going to vote; their bil
lots were taken under protect, names wi it

nnd In the Bntro Times last evening that
lie had attempted to use money in Orange
to purchase and to Influence voteis for P.

makes the following statement; "I was in
Orange June 14. working in the Interests
of P. W. Clement. I was not sent from
hindquarters to do work In Orange but as
a citizen of Orange called on me the day
before tbe caucus and staie-1 that wc could
probably win one and possibly both dele
gates on tho Clement ticket If a llttlo work
was done there, and the position of the
different candidates for governor was
placed before the toteis of Orange I de
cided at his earnest solicitation to do what
1 could to help him out. I went to Oiange
and did all 1 could that was perfectly
honorable to elect Clement ilclcg.it s. One
was fairly elected but It was contested
mid brought bef.no tho State committee,
tlie reason given for contesting was Hint
democri Is voted In the caucus. Why, if
this Royal Plandi'is, who was seated In
the place of tho Clement delegates, had
any such charge to make as lie now brings
forwaul, why did he not make It before
the State committee. 1 hlivd several teams
for getting voters to the polls but no man
In Orange with whom I had any dealings
can honestly say that any money I ex
pended In that town wns for the Influenc
ing any vote. Any man. whether h" makes
the statement under oath or otherwise,
that I paid any one for voting lu sulci cau
cus is a malicious prevaricator."

WATER FOR SHEEP
They Need a Plentiful Supply of the
Best.
An important point in successful sheep
management is the water supply. While
good water is a gie.it thing in growing
nil kinds of live stock, It Is especially fo
with the sheep, which Is not only a dainty
feeder but a dainty drinker, anil will on.y
take bail, stagnant water Into Its stomach
when driven to It by thirst.
Not only will it suffer for tho want of
drink when the supply Is bad, but it 1 sub
ject to more dlseasfts, usually paras. tic.
that have their origin In polluted watr
than uny other of tho domestic animals.
Where the flocks get thrlr supply from
surface water courses liable to pollution
of all kinds, sick sheep may bo expected,
with the aggravation that It is often Im
possible to determine what to do for them.
With such a source of supply, also, a
rainy season, which washes the soil from
long distances and bilngs down accumu
lations of filth, Is likely to Increas tl e
amount of obscure disease In the flock.
It is also no unsual cause of scours In
lambs. We generally look for the cause
of scours In tlie foul, but quite as often it
is duo to Impure water.
Everybody Is familiar with the chsturo
nnco In the human family, particularly in
hot weather, which follows the use of b.ul
water. Tne stomach of tho lamb, and even
tho sheep, is quite as susceptible to elan
gers from this souito as is that of th
jshephenr. Wc often see flocks on fairly
good past ires. that ought to do well so
far as feed Is concerned, showing n lack of
thrift and n general dullness for which
there seems to be at first blush no appar
ent reason. Very often an examination of
the water supply will reveal the cause.
