THE FOUNDATIONS ARE SOUND The country's present production on the farms and in manufactures and mining is $25,000,000,000 a year, and it would be strange if a people capable of developing such a business should be unequal to the decails of carrying it forward on an arderty and fairly remunerative basis. In the whole groundwork of American industries there is no in dication of a failure in material re sources. Crops have been good for a long succession of years. When this important fact is analyzed it is seen that results in American agri culture have constantly grown surer. The intelligent methods of our farmers overcome difficulties that formerly took the shape of "bad years." None has occurred lately, nor is any indicated. This is a large country, and in farming has risen above local perversities of season. Not a crack is seen anywhere in the foundation. What is, then, that caused the recent flurry? There has been a deficiency in the cur rency, to some extent due to hoard ing, but congress is in session and can apply a speedy remedy. In or der to prevent runs by the panic stricken, the banks took some un usual measures to protect themselves ami depositors, but the banks have proved themselves, with extremely few exceptions, to have assets far beyond what they owe. Confidence, or, in other words, credit, has been disturbed, and credit represents a financial working force twice as large as the entire volume of cur rency. Gambling in stocks' has been greatly curtailed, but this is a phase of the mater that is not regretted by the people. Plunging on margins is at the risk of those who engaged in it, and the public has no sympathy to waste on the losers, though they certainly object to the class of banks that get mixed up in it. Individual credit in general has been closely scrutinized anew. An unsound con cern must go through the process of liquidation, but this Is no novelty. It has been a phase of business from the first beginnings of trade. in TO SAVE THE BUFFALO. The American Bison society will meet in New York in January, and this fact makes particularly timely an article in Country Life in Am erica, entitled "The Fight to Save the Buffalo." It is writen by Ernest Harold Baynes, secretary of the so ciety. and Is endorsed by Theodore Roosevelt, the society's honorary president. As to the present status bf the animal, Mr. Baynes says: "Roughly speaking there are now about two thousand buffaloes in ex istence. Of these abbut one thou sand are in the United States, near ly as many in Canada, and with the exception of a solitary specimen in South America, the balance are in Europe. The last named are nearly all in zoological gardens and may be counted out entirely. The buffalo is so closely allied with f the history of the Western plains that it possesses a large sen timental value, if no other. The ! fight to save a portion of the great I herds which once roame«| The *tree j less Btretches of the West is one that ought to be waged vigorously. NORTHWEST 4c - * * INLAND NOTES North Yakima.—The Japanese la borérs are flocking to the Yakima valley by the hundreds, and most of them are securing employment aud in many cases supplanting white I men. The Japs have proven good 1c ! borers in the Yakima valley, and it .is believed within a short tin# they I will do the greater part of the do mestc work in the vicinity of North Yakma. North Yakima.—Suit has been commenced by the Toppenish school district to secure the annulment of school warrants of that district which were forged by the former district clerk, who is now serving a sentence in the state penitentiary at Walla Walla for the crime. About 40 warrants, representing approxi mately $5000, are said to be in clr eulatlon. Walla Walla.—The property own ers on Lower Main street will soon present a petition to the council ask ing for the establishment of a pav ing district for that section. The The Light That's Bright Under the glittering light of the electric lamp every thing is seen at its best. A poorly-furnished bouse becomes bright and cheerful in appearance with the introduction of electric light. The dark and dingy store once avoided by shoppers, quickly changes Its character and becomes a busy mart of trade under the radiant brilliance Electric Illumina of tlon. Call at Electric Light Office completion of the new railroad sta tion has brought much traffic to that section of the city, and streets are in a bad condition. Walla Walla.—A shortage in the onion supply is reported by local dealers. The shortage refers partic ularly to green onions, but commis sion men state the bulk of the dry onion crop has been shipped out of the country. Wenatchee.—The first wagon bridge across the Columbia river, from its mouth to this city, will be opened to the public early in Janu ary. The bridge will be formally opened with ceremonies in which prominent citizens of this section will participate. The building of the wagon bridge across the river at this point will be a boom to the rich farming country between Wenatchee and Waterville. Walla Walla.—The inability to resist the temptation to partake of a Christmas dinner at home proved the undoing of Delos Webb, who was placed under arrest here on a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon at Connell. Webb escaped from Connell before he could be arrested, and risked coming home for Christ mas. * r* ««it* Spokane.—The people of Spokane have feasted upon turkeys until not only the local supply has been con sumed, but the large Eastern ship ments of juicy corn-fed gobblers have been passed out over the retail counters. Poultry dealers state the supply is practically exhausted in the Inland Empire, and after New Year's it is believed few marketable birds will be left. Spokane.—While Mayor Moore is endeavoring to reach a decision rela tive to the petition received from business men asking that the Sunday closing law be not rigidly enforced, another faction of business men, supported by the church element, is laboring with County Attorney Barnhart to secure a most rigid en forcement of all laws, and ^particu larly the one regulating the Sunday closing. The men who have been in conference with the prosecuting at torney refuse to discuss the matter or indicate the results of the confer ence, but it is belieeed the lid is on for keeps, no matter what he de cision of Mayor Moore may be. u' Enterprise.—The details of thb killing of Frank Raymond on the Snake river, 60 miles east of Enter prise, have just reached here. It ap pears that Raymond, while drunk, went to the home of his bride of three weeks and assaulted her brother, Howard Whittier, her moth er. and then tdrned upon his wife. It was then that young Whittier se cured a rifle and shot him dead. few Sumpter.—A number of local bus iness men were easy victims for John Rohrer, who was well supplied with Confederate money, which he changed into the good old United States money with little difficulty. Reports received since Rooher's ar rest indicate that he has been suc cessfully operating in many of the cities of the Inland Empire. Spokane.—The city is still in the hands of the holdup men, the last at tack being on an old man who resid- j ed in a cabin in the outskirts of the city. The robbers and tenant en gaged in a brisk battle with revi vers, but none of the seven shots fired took effect. Meet ire at the roller rink on Tanuarv 1. _ _ TOO LATE TO CLASSIFY.
