Drumheller Sale Was Biggest of Week
—Small Lots Sold During Week
Aggregating 150,000 Bushels.
Outside of the sale of the Drumhel
ler wheat to the Jones-Scott company
at 66V2 cents, there were no large lots
of wheat sold this week although the
aggregate picked up by the various
buyers probably totalled 150,000
bushels. Estimates made yesterday by
conservative buyers place the amount
of the 1905 crop sold so far at 50 per
cent or about 2,500,000 bushels. Other
aealers however, did not think that the
total amount sold would reach above
40 per cent. Aside from the sale of a
dozen or so of th e biggest lots in the
county the big crops are still being
held for an advance over present quo
tations. Concerning the general sit
uation the Oregonian has this to say:
The wheat market has a very firm
tone, but the movement is not heavy.
Farmers are proving to be strong
holders, expecting higher prices later.
Dealers yesterday offered 74 cents for
club, bluestem was quoted at 76@77
cents, and Valley at 74 cents. Trading
has not been heavy, except for one or
two short periods, since the season
opened, and the trade looks for even
a slower market from now on. A good
deal of the buying is for the United
Kingdom with some business doing on
South America account. California is
still a steady purchaser, and wheat
buying for Oriental shipment is also
under way.
Oats and barley are strong with an
upward tendency. There is an active
demand for both these cereals. Bar
ley offerings are limited, but a consid
erable quantity of oats are on sale.
The foreign position of wheat main
tains its strength, but the American
speculative markets have not respond
ed fully to the Liverpool advances. In
France the weather is reasonable in
character. The country wheat mar
kets are very quiet, but very firm, but
the Paris term market is dull. The
Petit Journal maintains that the recent
official estimate of the wheat crop was
too optimistic, and says that France
will have to import 28,000,000 bushels
this season, sooner or later.
The following is an extract from a
letter received from a traveling man
in Russia: "They will ship absolutely
everything they can lay their hands
on, but it will greatly diminish in the
early part of next year. There is a
general disposition to sell out all for
fear of further troubles. People talk
about it quite openly in the trains,
streets and restaurants, the officers
more than ordinary people show
how dissatisfied they are with
the government, so a revo
lution is not far off. For that
Teason the farmers prefer to have the
hard cash to stock which is sure to be
destroyed. I consider this as being
one of the main reasons for the heavy
shipments of late."
"The Tenderfoot."
W. P. Cullen will present Oscar L.
Figman and Ruth White at the Key
lor Grand November 2, in that delight
ful western operatic comedy, "The
Tenderfoot." Those two stars have
made many friends by their fine work
in "The Burgomaster' under the same
management. Mr. Figman is said by
the Chicago critics to be delightful in
the character of Professor Pettibone.
The music of "The Tenderfoot" is of
a high class. H. L. Heartz, who wrote
the music, is a composer of no mean
ability. He seemed to catch the out
door spirit of "The Tenderfoot," and
the result has been a number of par
ticularly swinging airs. The best re
membered songs "I'm a Peaceable
Party," "Fascinating Venus," and
"Only a Kiss,' two particularly fine
numbers which are sung by Miss
White. "The Soldiery," anj the finale
of the second act, "To Arms." There
is a singing company of nearly seven
ty people, presenting this enjoyable
opera, including the famous "Dolly"
Adelaide Herrmann.
When the curtain rose some weeks
ago at the Columbia theatre in Wash
ington, D. C, upon the entertainment
given by Adelaide Herrmann and her
company there confronted the noted
entertainers a most fashionable audi
ence; one that collects only upon rare
occasions i n th e nation's Capitol. The
boxes were occupied by members of
the diplomatic corps, prominent among
whom were the Korean minister, family
and suite. Magic appeals strongly to
the people of the Orient, and the en
gagements of the Herrmann company
in Washington are always attended by
officialdom from that portion of the
globe, the far east, where the elder
Herrmann had visited and played be
fore royalty upon several occasions,
years before. The magic of Madame
Herrmann is appreciated probably
more by them than even the great
American public, although magic can
be said to be one of the institutions
of the Orient. As heretofore stated the
Corean minister and suite were inter
ested spectators of the Herrmann en
gagement at the Columbia theatre and
the delight with which they witnessed
Adelaide Herrmann's appearance in
the act which is entitled "A Night in
Japan," dressed in a magnificent Jap
anese gown and performing several
mysterious feats, such as the growing
rose bushes wherein the roses are ma
terialized from a few seeds placed in
flower pots and distributed f o the au
dience, was indeed wonderful. It
was when Madam Herrmann took
Oscar L. Figman in "The Tenderfoot"
at Keylor Grand Nov. 1.
three large glasses and filling two
with water and one with some light
preparation, turned the wa'er in one
glass to coffee, in the other to milk
and the third glass containing the
powdered substance into loaf sugar,
'hat their delight was unbounded.
Madam Herrmann then poured the
milk into a pitcher, the coffee into
small cups and the sugar into th e sug
ar bowl, and placing them on a tray,
passed them into the box for Corean
inspection. The lady of the party
(probably the minis'er's wife) ac
cepted a cup and tasting it, passed it
to the minister, accompanying the
action with animated gestures and
convensation. The minister also tast
ed it, and smilingly returned the cup
to the tray. The audience received
the incident with a round of applause.
The Japanese minister and Chinese
minister also witnessed the perform
ance. She will be at the Keylor
Grand next Tuesday night.
Another large audience greeted the
Ed Redmond company at the Keylor
Grand when that charming play,
"The Power of Truth," was produced.
Every member of the cast seemed to
be imbue i with a spirit of getting
everything possible out of the part as
signed and if the appreciation shown
by the audience is any criterion their
efforts were successful. It would be
difficult to particularize and pick
out the star of the evening. Suffice
to say that it was one of the best per
formances ever given by the com
pany. The play will be repeated to
night. Sunday . night the beautiful
and interesting piece, "Love and
Friendship." will be given. Monday
the company goes to Day'on for a
week's engagement, while the local
Vwise will be occupied by traveling
companies. The company will re
turn with a splendid new play.
In the drawing for the baby buggy
last night Lowell Sherrod of Green's
addition held the lucky number, and
he gracefully accepted the present by
complying with the rules and wheel
ing the carriage across the stage.
Excellent Concert.
The operatic and ballad concert giv
en in St. Patrick's hall last night by
Mme. G. Ferrari was attended by a
good sized audience, who were amply
repaid for their attendance. The pro
gram rendered was one of the best
ever given in Walla Walla. Mme.
Ferrari gave a number of excellent
solos demonstrating that she is a
vocalist of artistic ability. Signor
Ferrari captivated the audience with
his solos. Archie Henderson gave
a beautiful tenor solo, while Miss Ludu
Paul rendered in splendid style a
violin solo. The High School Man
dolin club also gave several se
lec'ions. Misses Nellie Lyons and
Nellie Johnson were the accompan
Miss Bade's Concert.
Those who to attend the grad
uating concert given at Whitman
college last night by Miss Bertha
Bade missed a rare treglt. The pro
gram included many different num
bers which were .rendered by Miss
Bade with remarkable skill.
Opening of National Business Show.
NEW YORK. Oct. 28.—The second
national business show opened here
today at Madison Square Garden with
a large attendance. Never before has
such a comprehensive exhibition of
appliances, contrivances, furniture,
etc., of a helpful and time and labor
saving value to the commercial and
industrial world been shown under one
roof. Manufacturers of typewriters,
office furniture and office supplies
from all parts of the United States and
Canada and even from Europe are
represented in the exhibition and the
latter is attracting great interest
among business men of all branches.
One of the interesting features of the
exhibition will be a speed contest on
typewriters between Miss Eola Worth
ing of Brooklyn and Miss Lillian Ro
mr of Chicago. The exhibition will
close on November 4. At the same
time the national association of office
appliance manufacturers and the asso
ciated appliance manufacturers of
the country will hold their annual
New Method of Speed Testing.
WASHINGTON, D. C., Oct. 28.—The
new protected cruiser Charleston,
which will be tested for speed today,
is the first warship tested in accord
ance with the new system of speed
testing. Formerly the vessels were
jp'ven a run over a staked course of a
definite number of miles or knots. Un
der the presen* system the revolutions
of the screws during a run in the open
sea and watched, after the propellers
have been carefully standardized. This
method was chosen at the recommen
dation of the former Engineer-in-
Chief Melville a~ - is regarded as the
most scientific and accurate method
yet devised for ascertaining the sea
speed of a steamship. The Charleston
will be given a run of four hours.
