The total attendance at the Spokane [ruit fair this year was 72.250. Stops have been taken at Salem to contest the Wright branch asylum site sasa. Lane county's potato crop is ehort this year, and the farmers look for high prices. Winter apples are more plentiful in Kittitaa valley than ever before, and the quality is first-class. There is an unusual amount of sick ness in Palouee at pres«nt, most of th« patienti having typhoid fever. Two men who made a voyage from Lynn canal to St. Michaels in an open boat have arrived at Victoria. The run of silversido ealmon in the Lower Columbia river continues heavy, nml tho fall pack will be unusually large. News has reached Victoria of the ap pointment of C. C. Sinkler, of Nelson, us gold commissioner for the Yukon Jisirict, vice Fawcett, removed. On the steamship Doric, which ar rived at San Francisco from the Orient, was broueht in opium valued at $270, --000, on which a duty of $100,000 will bo collected. The value of improvements in Walla Walla county, exclusive of cities, ac cording to the revision of the board of equalisation, amounts t05380,324; per sonal property, $1,875,382. The Lincoln county (Wash.) commis sioners have fixed the tax levy for all purposes at 14 mills, on a valuation ol |5,666 f ?3& The levy for road pur poses waa increased from 0.82 to 1.25 mills. The floating indebtedness against the new town of Kent, Wash., will be paid off January, after which the city's in coiuo will be sufficient to pay all cur rent expenses and leave a handsome surplus. The prune crop of Clackamas county, Oregon, has been gathered and mar keted with very little loss, and growers are elated over piesent profits and future prospects. At Clackamas sta tion, 82 tons weie evaporated. A cargo of 100,073 bushels of barley was shipped from Tacoina the week be fore last direct to England. The barley was all raised In Columbia county, Washington, and being of prime qual ity, netted the producers a good price. The charter has been granted for the building of the Golden-Fort Steele, B. C, railroad, and work will be started in early spring. The contract for the Nelson & Bedlington railway has been let to Lai son & Foley, work to coai mence this month. Controller of the Currency Dawea baa decided that he has no authority to charter a national bank in Honolulu until congress passes laws for the gov ernment of the islands. Consequently Penrv S. Heath and SanFiancisco capi talize will not have their applications granted at present. The Carbonado coal mines shipped iJ5,000 tona during September, beat ing all previous records. Roslyn had held the record with 30,000 tons. The Carbonado mines, owned by the South ern Pacific Railroad Company, are run ning fall time and employ 600 men, averaging $3.29 a day wages. The Scully Steel & Iron Company, ol Chicago, hag just closed a contract for the delivery of 25,000 tons of steel plates at Victoria, B.

A scheme is on foot to construct a lodging road about three miles in length from the head ot Gray's liver, Oregon. It will be operated by A. L. Saluren, who has in operation a simi lar road at Clat9kanie, and will tap a district of 5,000 acres of eprnce timber belonging to C. H. Gieen, of Saginaw, .Mich. The new association does not con template any general regulation of coast lumber values. Its aims are simply to control the situation at Son Francisco, where the trade has been for some time in a badly demoralized condition. Puget Sound values, foreign trade or other departments of the lum ber business, are not affected. Henry Miller, of Cathlamet, Wash., has contracted to furnish the North Pacific mills, at Portland, over 2,000, --000 feet of spruce and fir logs this sea son. The Astorian says that this cut will come from Eulokium, the principal logging stream flowing into the Colum bia, w hero over 150 men were employed at logging during the past summer. According to the Lumber man there is a good field on the doast for a email turpentine faotory. There are two species of wood rich in turpentine and allied pordncts, Douglas fir and "bull" pine, wood alcohol, pitch and other so-called naval producla. The yield is by no means as large as the pitch pine of the South, bat there ie certainly room for a factory that will utilize the stumps and refuse of pitch-bearing trtes on the coast. Harvesting in the Palouse country has been completed. Every threshing machine has pulled in, and the haul ing of grain to different shipping points! will be finiehed by November 1, or per-1 haps a little sooner. So far this season, i the total shipment of new wheat has not exceeded 275,000 bushels, most of this being to Spokane for milling, and to the Sound. Since the completion of! harvesting, farmers and giaindealera have concluded that the crop of this ! year is the largest ever hatvested in the Palouse country. Although the' average yield is lees than in 1897 and t several other former seasons, the aggie gate yield has been greater. One feature ct the new fishery law enacted by the Oregon legislature in' special session, is likely to receive con-' Biderable attention. It is that 'cth«' persona appointed to the position ol fish commissioner shall told the office herein provided for for the period of four years from the time of his appoint- < ment" This would make the appoint-' ment by Governor Lord, for the law carries the emergencoy clause, hold nearly through the term of Governor Geer. I WEEKLY MARKET LETTER. [Reported by downing. Hopkins & Co., Inc., Board of Trade Brokers, 711 to 714 Chamber oi Commerce building, Portland, Oregon.] Since Leiter failed the outsider has not been interested in Chicago prices. The disastrous outcome to the man with so many millions was a terrifying leeson to the small bull. Explanations did not count. Whether Leiter made egregious errors or not was of little consequence. The defeat, after a year's campaign, of the bull leader who for so long seemed the greatest who had ever arisen, took the heart from every one who had believed in his cause. It was only last June that the disaeter took place; about four montha ago. It seems a long interval, but it is really a short one, and it would be remarkable if it were not still in everyone's mind. What new bull leader would now invite the comparisons which would inevitably be made; what banking concern would hazard the criticism which would fol low any favors toward a buying cam paign in grain? Have the losses of last summer's collapse been forgotten yetr There must be a good deal imaginative about any bull deal. Not one advance in twenty is a mere matter of consump tive demand or of actual scarcity. There must be a great deal of theory with advancing prices; people must forget prudence, become venturesome, permit more or less exhiliration. Would it not be like holding a picnic at the close of a funeral to permit much bull spirit within four months of the Leiter failure? The present movement of wheat to market is the heaviest ever known—ll, --000,000 bushels received at primary points last week. There was never any such total as that in six days before. la not the speculator doing pretty well in taking caro of that property and in also maintaining prices? Is not the fact that such a volume of grain is financed and the price sustained evidence frhat the volume of speculation is larger than the very narrow fluctuations would indicate? Seattle Markets.

Jmlge Day Alhilk I'onitive Denundf on Spain. London, Oct. 19.—A dispatch to the Londbn News Agency from Paris says: "Today the confeience reaohed a crisis for the first time. Judge Day presented the demands of the American commission in threatening words. He said that delay was the only possible object obtainable by the persistent efforts of the Spanish commissioners to saddle the United Stated witi the Cu ban debt, and would be tolerated no longer, as the United States would neither assume nor guarantee any part of the debt. "The Spaniards replied that this placed Spain in a position of repudiat ing or of reducing the face of the Cuban bonds from 50 to 60 per cent, paying only half the stipulated interest on reduced value. Before they would adopt either atlernative they would sur render to the United States the entire Philippines. "Judge Day responded that the sur render of the Philippines would proba bly be demanded, irrespective of the Cuban or any other debt. "This, to the Spaniards, the first in timation of the intentions of the Unit ed States as to the Philippines, resulted in a whispered conference, followed by a request for an adjournment in order to communicate with Madrid. Judge Day said that President McKinley had instructed him to demand the entire surrender of Porto Rico, and the deliv ery of every town to the United States officers before midnight, together with the evacuation of Havana on or before November 1, when the United States would be at the gates of the city ready to take possession. "There was n© alternative offered in the case of either of these demands; the session consequently was very brief." DEATH IN THE STORM. Pitlfal Fate of a Young Boy Ne«i Florence, Colo. Denver, Oct. 19.—A special to the Rocky Mountain News from Florence, Colo., says: On Saturday William Lei> lin and his 10-year-old boy came tc Florence, from their borne, six miles from Florence, to do some trading. After spending the day about town, al 6 P. M. they started home in theii wagon. It was raining when they left town, but when out about five miles the rain turned to a blinding snow storm. The father lost his way, and wandered about among scrub pines and in the hills all night. The wagon and team was abandoned, and an effort was made to reach home" on foot. As the night wore on the little fel- Jow became cold and numb and" frcwe tc death in his fathei'a arms. The fathei managed to keep alive by walking, un til he could walk no more from numb ness of limb. Daylight broke, and Lei* lin knew he was not far from home, but was unable to walk. At 9 O'clock his cries were heard by his wife, whc went to his rescue. Neighbors were summoned and 'he old gentleman was assisted to his home, but he was so neai dead that he could not give an intelli gent account of the night's wander ings, but the dead body of the boy told a pitiful story of a lack of sufficient clothing to keep him warm. He wor€ knee pants and a small coat, but no un derwear nor outer coat. His shoes and stockings were almost completely wore out. "Booty" Tobacco Admitted Free. Washington, Oct. 17. — Assistant- Secretary Howell, of the treasury de partment, has consented to the admis sion, free of duty, into Santiago, of 100,000 pounds of Cuban tobacco in the possession of General Franco Sanchez, having charge of the insurgent army at Mayari. This is a lot of "booty" tobacco, and the proceeds of the sale will be expended for the benefit of the Cuban army, which needs supplies ol clothing and subsistence. The ques tion was referred to the war depart ment by General Lawton, and In turn sent to the treasury department for lte recommendation. Preparing for War. Paris, Oct. 19. —Confirmation ie given at the ministry of marine to th« report that Admiral Pourar, now ai Tunis, has been ordered to return to im mediate active service, and orders have been issued that the largest possibli number of gunners go to Brest to man the forts. These preparations are thought to be the result of the Fasho da affair with Great Britain. Papers here say three British iron clads are engaged in gun practice of] Dizert, a French naval station in tlit Mediterranean. Near Boiling Foint. Bayonne, France, Oct. ly.—Advices received here from Madrid point to ef fervescence in military circles there. Members of the Military Club openly and severely criticise the government for concluding what they term as a "humiliating peaoe," and some of them even suggest the establishment of a militaiy dictatorship under the present dynasty. The officials at Madrid deny the re port current on the Continent that Cap tain-General Blaco has resigned. Many Llirsa tost. Margat. England, Oct. 19.—Th« British ship Blengfelt, from New York, burned off this place early this morn ing. Eleven of the crew, besides the captain's wife and children, perished. Four Were Killed. Reading, Pa., Oct. 19.—Four men were killed by the explosion of a Wil mington & Northern freight engine at Joanna station this afternoon. The dead are: William Herflioker, engineer, aged 50; George Mills, fireman, aged 88; Willis Woodward, a brakeman; Hairy Huydam, conductor. All lived at Birdsboro, this county, and all were married and leave famil ies, except Huydam. DocheuWai CareUai. Paris, Oct. 19.—The Dochess oi Sutherland, while on board a train bound for Calais, lost a satchel contain ing jewelry worth $150,000. She left the train at Amiens, and returned here to report the loss to the police. It ie believed the satchel was stolen.

Smith, 59 Summer St., Uiddeford, Me.: 11 For several years I suffered with various diseases peculiar to my sex. I I Was troubled witli a burning-sensation 1 across the small of my back, that all gone feeling, was despondent, fretful and discouraged; the least exertion tired me. I tried several doctors but received little benefit. At last I de cided to give your Lydia E Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial. The ef fect of the first bottle was magical. Those symptoms of weakness that I was afflicted with, vanished like vapor before the sun, I cannot speak too highly of your valuable remedy. It is truly a boon to woman .'* From Mrs. Melissa Phillips, Lex ington, Ind-» to Mrs. Pinkham: "Before I began taking your medicine I had suffered for two years with that tired feeling, headache, backache, noap ' petite, and a run-down condition of the system. I could not walk across the room. I have taken four bottles of the Vegetable Compound, one box of Liver Pills and used one package of Sanative ! Wash, and now feel like a new woman, and am able to do my work." From Mrs. Molub B. Herrel, Pow ell Station, Term.: "For three years I suffered with such a weakness of the back, I could not perform my household duties. I also i had falling of the womb, terrible bear | ing-down pains and headache. I have I taken two bottles of Lydla E. Pink- j i ham's Vegetable Compound and feel ; , like a new woman.

The bealthfulness of bicycle riding for women is still a disputed question between eminent physicians and health reformers. Used in moderation it surely creates for women a means of out-door exer ctee, the benefit of which all physicians concede. Used to excess, like any other pastime, its effect is likely to be dangerous. The experience ef Miss Bertha Reed, the 57-year-old daughter of Mr. J. R. Reed, 835 Lake street, Delaware, O. t may point a moral for parents who, like Mr. and Mrs. Reed, have expert enced some concern for their daughters wbd are fond of wheeling. In the fall of '96 Miss Bertha, who had ridden a great deal, began to fa^l in an alarm ing manner. She grew steadily palet and thinner, and it appeared she was going into consumption. Rest and quiet did her absolutely no good. A physician found her poire at 104—a very high rate, Thinking this may She Rides Well. have been due to temporary nervous ness when he examined her,he watched her closely, but her pulse continued at that rate for two weeks. He was satis fled then, from her high pulse and steadily wasting condition that she was suffering from anaemia or a bloodless condition of the body. She became extremely weak, and could not stand the least noise or excitement. In this condition of affairs they were reccom mended by an old friend to get some of that famous blood medicine. Dr. Williams' j Pink Pills for Pale People. They did so, and almost from the first dose Ber tha began to improve. She continued to take the pills and was by means of those pills made entirely well, and more grateful people than her parents 1 cannot be found in the whole state of Ohio. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have proved a boon to womankind. Acting directly on the blood and nerves, they restore the requisite vitality to all parts of the body; creating functional regularity and perfect harmony throughout the nervous system. The pallor of the cheeks ra changed to the delicate blush of health; the eyes brighten; the muscles grow elastic, ambition is created and good health re turns.
