Washlng'on, Nov. 28. The first vesslon of the sixtieth congress will conveno at noon Monday. The ses alon has been looked forward to as one likely to be mor.1 than ordlr.arily Interesting. ' When congress meets Just before a presidential campaign, as in the present case, the policy of the lead era of the majority has always been to confine tho session more to ora tory than to action, nut the session about to begin will prove an excep tion to the rule. The demand for currency Ieglsla tion cannot be Ignored. Since the present financial flurry began col umns if newspaper space have been devoted to expressions of opinion from bankers, business men, manu racturers, merchants and others showing how press'rg these people believe tho subject to be. Other matters of grent political and commercial Importance also de mnnd attention. Many recommenda tlons will be contained In the presi dent's message. Though few of them of course, will be . enacted into law ai me present session the nmjnrl.y of the subjects will at least coma up ror discussion. Tho control of rail roads and other corporations doln an Inteistatc business will receive at tention, Including proposed amend ments to the Sherman anti-trust law- Other recommendations 'will prob ably Include a graduated inheritance tux. consideration of a federal in come tax, the revision of the tariff on imports 'from the Philippines, the pns.age of a modified shipping bill, the creation of postal savings banks the establishment of a more effec tive public health service than now rAimn, aim ine extension or the par cels post. The demand for, the exclusion of the Japanese will be another "serious problem with which the ndmlnlstra Hon and republican leaders in con gress will have to deal. The Pn- c.flc const states are insistent that Japanese shall be excluded from American soil, end the delegation In Congress from those s'.utes will urge legislation. That the administration is keenly apprehensive as to the sit uatlon Is shown by the refusal of the department" of commerce and labor to discuss Japanese Immigration and the determination of Secretary Straus to suppress tho publication of bulle tins showing the volume of Japanese immigration. Monday will bo devoted to the work of organization, and the president's message will not be presented until the following day. Vice President Fairbanks will call the senate to or der Monday, while the house will be called to order by the clerk. Among the republicans It Is set tled that Representative Cannon shall succeed himself as speaker, and he will be nominated In the republican caucus for the third time, without a voice In opposition. Tho old officers of the houso will be re-elected, as the combine, which' organized the houso several years ago Is still suffi ciently cohesive to prevent any of the new members from undoing the pro gram the veterans have mapped out. Including Senators Gore and Owen of Oklahoma, In regard to whom there may be some contest, and Smith of Michigan, 'Curtis of Kansas and Du Pont of Delaware, who took their seats, filling vacan cies, late In the last session, there will be 18 new men In the senate These will be Bankhead and Johnson of Alabama, Borah of Idaho, Bourne of Oregon, Briggs of New Jersey, Brown of Nebraska, Dnvls of Arkan sas, Dixon of Montana, Guggenheim Killed Supposed Hurglnr, Chicago, Nov. 28.

Aside from their regular Inspection work the men of the federal quaran tine service are now gathering infor mation from the sheepmen as to the advantages of the different breeds of sheep, It is the desire of the bureau of animal industry to ascertain the most desirable breed for the ranges of the western states. What Is wanted Is the best generaj purpose sheep, one that will be sufficiently hard for the range, produce a good wool clip and be good for mutton purposes. At the Wyoming experiment sta on the bureau now has a band of Rambbouillets which are being used for experiment purposes. There are 250 ewes in the band nnd four rams, the latter being from the finest bands In the United States. It Is to learn the effects of cross breeding that the sheepmen are be ing questioned by the department, or It Is hoped by careful crossing to ul timately produce sheep that will fur ly meet the requ'rements of the dif ferent sections of the west. I HITS BEST Substantial Condition of the County Is Shown In Big Business Volume, NORTHWEST HAS SENT OUT 8,803,180 BUSHELS WHEAT Pant Year Has Been Most Prosper ous nnd Progressive In History of tho Northwest State More Home Builders Have Come In and More Development Has Been Done Than In Any Former Year Dairying) Fruit Growing and Irrigation Have All Advanced Remarkably. Portland, Nov. 28 The substantial' condition of the Pacific northwest Is Illustrated in a most convincing way by the wheat and flour shipments of Columbia river and Puget sound ports. For the 10 months beginning January 1 and ending October 31, there were exported from Portland and Puget sound ports (including Se attle, Tacoma and other points), a total of 8,893.480 bushels of wheat, and a total of 3,561,726 barrels of flour. The exact figures are: Portland 5.3S0.050 bushels wheat; 1,168.886 barrels of flour. Seattle, Tacoma and other Sound ports 3,513,430 bushels wheat; 2, 392.840 barrels of flour. The heavy movement of grain for the tremendous crop of the present year has been temporarily delayed' by the flnanc'al situation, but Is now on, and the months of November and ' December will make the record ship, ments of all history. There are 23 vessels In Portland harbor at this ' time, including steamers and sailing craft, and their principal cargo will be grain and flour. The equipment in Puget sound1 ports Is similar to thnt here. A few months must of necessity make the financial situation In this part of the United States better than it ever has ever been before, and In the face of figures such as those it is imposlble for any one to present a substantial reason for a continuance of the pres ent Inconvenience as to actual cash. The output of lumber from the sawmills and shingle mills, as well as the products of box and furniture factories, and all Industries using na tive woods has been greater the pres- ent year than ever before, and the cash for this is constantly coming In. The livestock Industry has had a -good year, the wool clip has been enormous, while fruit in 1907 has ; added to the wealth of Oregon and'-i Washlngton at least 30 per cent'" more than during prosperous 1906. Xo figures are available on the dairy products of Washington, but Oregon has Jumped from nothing 10 years ago to Jo, 000, 000 five years ago, and J17.000.000 during 1907. The pro gress In irrigation has never been so. marked as during the 10 months just passed, both In government and pri vate projects. More homebullders have come In to the Pacific northwest than ever before, one system of railroads re porting for Oregon points alone- 230 colonists for every day between Sep tember 1 and October 31. Many of these new settlers have come to the state with from $2000 to J30.000 and hav invested it the result will be a great Increase in the productiveness of hoih states. Restoring Old Orchards. George T. Frost's orchard is ona that Is in process of restoration. Mr. Frost is a pioneer of 1852, says tho Sclo News. His orchard w-as put In In 1857. For a nunjb; of years it produced .-rood fruit as can be grown in either Hood River or Roguo River valleys. He, like every one else, because of the lack of market for apples, allowed his orchard to de teriorate so that what few apples were grown were fit only for hog feed. Three years ago Mr. Frost commenced putting his fruit trees in condition. Now they are growing fruit equal to the best that we have seen that came from Hood River. His Bellflowers and Baldwins are simply perfect. We know, for he sent us a sample. What he has ac complished with his old orchard can be accomplished with nearly all of our old orchards. Money talks, and cashier's checks produce a lot of it. Clerk Attempts Suicide. San Francisco, Nov. 2S. Rilph C. Rose of Portland. Ore., a former clerk of the O.
