WHEAT AND CORN SHORTAGE
The government estimate for the
crops of the country which was
made for August 1, show that the
wheat crop is considerably off, it be
ing more than 350,000,000 bushels
behind last year. At $1 a bushel it j
is easy to see where the farmers are ,
going to have a little less money j
than they had. Dorn showis a simi
lar decrease itn its expected yiield,
and a falling off 270,000,000 bushels 1
is predicted for this year by hte gov
ernment. Eighty cents for each
bushel i® what the farmers wiiill not i
get. Oats, similarly, wtill miss last
veer’s. mark, if the government esti
mate is correct, by more than 270,- 1
000,000 bushels, which means a loss
of forty cents each to the farmer.
Apples, peaches, hay and sweet pota
toes show a small decrease in yield
and potatoes show an increase as
does cotton. But what of the fig
ures? Have you ever been able to
tell how much money you had in
sight by the crop report of the gov
ernment. i |j i:
A TEST FOR LEGISLATORS
i
The interesting suggestion that can*
didates for the legislature be requir-!
ed to show their fitness by passing
an examination is made. We estab
lish schools for training men in
every profession and business, but
the even more important work of:
solving the problems of the People in
the matter of new legislation, we
ask only that a candidate shall be
aide to control enough votes to be
elected. Why not enlarge the appli
cation of civtid service to include can
dictates for our law-making bodies?
A knowledge of thq. elements of the {
law and of the principle which un- j
nerlic social and economic legisla
tion would be required. A test of i
iiis sort would be no embarrassment
to a man of average knowledge of
public affairs, but would tend to
eliminate the unfit, and some of
at least, who seek office only for j
what they can get out of it. This
may be the next reform in the lfne I
of progress and itis much more need
ed than some of those that are now
enacted into law. What says Oregon >
Washington or Kansas? Let the
thinking people rule. —Leslie’s Week

MINING ENGINEERS COMING.
Recognizing the importance of the
state of Arizona to the country’s
mining interests the American Insti
tute of Mining Engineers will meet
for the first, time in its* history of
forty-five years in this state next
month. Sessions of the meeting will
extend over the entire week of Sep
j tember 18th and wjill bg held in the
j principal mining centers of the state,
I the members traveling between the
I various points by special train and
automobile. Principles of mining and
metallurgy of the greatest interest
j will be presented at the technical
! sessions.
The principal towns in wthlchthe
j institute sessions or visits of inspec
-1 Uon will be held are Santa R&fc and
Hhrley, New Mexico, and Douglas,
Bisbee, Globe and Phoenix, Arizona.
The inspections will include the
Roosevelt Dam and the mines and
works of practically all the leading
metal-producing companies of the
state. At Douglas, in the technical
sessions, the Institute will discuss
the special subject of “smelt j|ng.”
At Bisbee papers will be read on
“mining and geology” and at Globe
the first day willl be given over to
“mining and smelting” and “leach
ing.” During a sceond day at Globe
time has been set aside for what is
regarded as an important discussion
of “concentration and flotation.”
The institute now comprises more
than 5,600 members and next month’s
meeting is designed to develop sub
jects of interest to all these. In an
nouncing the Arizona meeting an of
ficial of the institute says: “A few
years ago Arizona stood thiird in the
copper producing districts of the
f’nited States. Since that time, with
the development of porphyry mines,
the output has gone up with great
rapidity until it not only is the lead
ing district, hut its output at t.he
present time is at the rate of nearly
double that of the Montana output,
which now stands second in the list.”
