Prosperity os the Farm. Indications ot a slightly reduced wheat crop in the Inlaud Empire are more than counterbalanced by the prospects of good prices. At this writing It seems assured that •the farmers will be able to market their grain at from 50 to 60 cents, and prices may go beyond these figures. Even now buyers staid ready to contract at 54 to 55 cents. At 55 cents there ought to be, on the average, a profit of 25 cents per bushel. Each nickel added to the price of wheat above 35 cents runs into profit rapidly. If it costs 30 cents to grow, harvest and market a bushel of wheat, the grower's pro fit at 40 cents will be double that at 35 cents, and at 55 cents bis profit will be five times as great. Poor thousand bushels at 55 cents will bring as much as 4400 bushels at 5°; 5500 bushels at 40; 6280 bushels 35, and 7300 bushels at 30 And it costs the grower, of course, a great deal less to harvest and market the smaller quantity. Price of wheat is therefore of more importance here than the yield.—Spokesman Review. Fresh Lot of Fictions. The democratic party of Iowa is "an amoositi' little cuss," as Josh Billings would say. The chair man oi its state convention, in his speech at the opening of that in teresting body, tells us that the country is in a high state of pros periiy, employment is easily ob tained, the mills and factories are running, the railways are gorged with traffic and all the processes ol production are going or, pouring out golden streams of wealth. the qpse, he patheti wfcM *Mn io\p* party uPunhappy hicaiise ,no "issues." Sothespokes the party for Iowa launches >ut on unknown seas, in a voyage of discovery, to find something of which he and his needy patriots may "complain." A mhage rises before him. He thinks he is about to make the happy discovery. He names his Fortunate Islands "Anti Imperial ism" and "The trusts." Here are prodigies and monsters. Now.' in fact, since there is nothing in sight to complain of, it is highly necessary that something be found which will serve for that interesting requirement. So the orator of the Democracy of Iowa falls back on bis powers of in vention and imagination. Wbst does "anti-imperialism" mean ? That we shall quit Porto Rico and the Hawaiin and Philip pine Islands ? But suppose tbe democratic party should go to the American people on that proposi tion. It would get a thump to which its former expediences were but gentle filips. The American people are not in the habit ot pull ing down the flag. Nor have they any fear that they will become "tyrants," or establish "Slavery," in the islands that have come under the sovereignty of the United States. Ami imperialism is a form of "amplaiut" purely imaginary —except as it exists in the neces sities of the demociatic party. As to to tbe trusts. The present Administration is dealing with them iu a rational wty. It is em ploying all reasonable means and every lawful power to hold in check and bring under control the vast combinations of capital whose methods set in questionable or op piessive. What other man would have had couiage that Theodore Roosevelt has shown ? And what gmuud has uny party to ''com plain" that he has doue too little ? But the Iowa democracy has t>H,ued down Biyauism. It admits that the great phtforms of 1896 and 1900, on which Brvan went to the country, were silly taise and worthless. Now the seatch is for other fictions.—Oregonian. The inauguration of a regular boat service for the upper Snake river points opens up a new era of development for the territory be tween here and Pittsburg landing and tbe tributary country embrac ing a wide sweep of very pro ductive land rich in many re sources but hitherto handicapped by lack of transportation facilities. Such a service will prove a benefit for the mining interests of tbe Upper Snake river where many rich prop rties are now being de veloped. The boat was constructed primarily for the use of a mining company having large interests to serve at Imuaba but it wit! be put in general c immission and serve the other mining interests of that locality, serve the farmers and the stockmen of the Salmon river country and those of the Joseph country on the Oregon side. It will bring to Lewiston the tride of a uew territory now rapidly de veloping and will increase the scope and importance of this place as a distributing center. No re cent development has been made of more real worth for Lewiston than the establishment of the regular service lor the upper river. This is a work of permanent and lasting benefit. News that Lewiston is expott ing pine to the eastern markets is news that points significantly to another development that will soon be made here. Tbe great Clearwater timber belt will soon be the feene of active industry. The lumber region of the Great Lakes has about exhausted the immense supply that has hitherto been the export point for the lumber trade of the middle west. No belter evidence of this can be asked than is furnished by the news that Lew iston mill men ship white pine to Wisconsin at a price which means $26.50 per thousand at the Lewis urn yards. The demand is active and the supply must •fjjt "life ; Äff" tV cWwaJfr will b$ caUetf japon is furnish the markets ot Urn east and work on a large scale will be begun at no far distant date. There is a general activity among tbe large corporations bolding Clearwater timber and manufact ure on a large scale will be one of the coming industries tor Lewis ton valley. The mining industry of the country tributary to Lewist n is making rapid development as is best evidenced by tbe bullion out put. It is now an almost daily occurrance for news of bullion shipments to be sent here from mines of tbe interior, giving actual demonstration of tbe productive capacity of the mines both of quanz and placer in the interior. The work of the mining bureau in displaying and advertising this bullion is ot lasting benefit to tbe whole mining country that lies tributary to ibis place. The July dividends on tbe lead ing railroad industrial, and bank ing corporations aggregates $i 37, ooo.ooo substantially larger than tbe dividends a year ago and ample proof that the business interests of the conntry aie on a solid basis. The hospitality showered upon tbe American squadron abroad shows that the Europeans respect a good thing when they see it.
