While the re ports show that the crops will be much smaller thian of last year there Is good ground for hop thalt the producers of the sou:h Will gelt a fair return for their reduced acreage, and meanwhile the more general divers! floalfion, of crops will help Hhom in cither respects. Two years ago every day brought dis psMieis atoout breaking banks and re duced -wages. Now every day adds to the number of establishments that have voluntarily advanced wages, although, as The Da.ly Dry Goods Record pithily ob serves, Ithe hlanels in textile iri.Tls woodd have to be earning an average of $8,000 each per year in order to gain as much in wagea as some merwsp&pers report they have galnied. But frantic exagger ations do not affect the fact thcut about half a mlWion workers are getitjng bet ter iwagas llhan they were when ttti-e en aJJment of a ithoromghly Damocrautc tar iff was fhreate-ned. The failure of the Denwcra'ts to tarry out their own ideas and 'Uhreiaits proved a blessing to the great army of workers, even though there are stune imlUllons more whose wages have not been raised as yet. Another cheering fact Is that the de mand for (swoda continues large, in spite of the great advance in the prices of many. It Is shown thalt Iron products have risen on the whole 23 per cent from tlhe lowest point, and most works now In operation are fully supplied with or ders. Hie pri ces of boots and shoes have risen, according to quotations furnished by The Shoe and Leather Reportier, an average of 29 Vi per cent, and, although some cities report ' a decrease In sales, Riupmenlls from the east are on the whole the largeslt ever known at this season. The retail distribution of products is generality good thorughoult the country, and it brtghliens nap.dly throughout the farming regions as the crop prospects brlgY.en. the quesMoin, after our own persistent efforts have been noticed and appreciated by every trade paper in the United States for several monlths past. It seems as though our 'PortMand contemporary, heed ful of its past silence, has determined to jump into the iraddto of the mtaltter with both feet, but in doing so it has in one or two ' ways overstretched the facts, The general tone of the article, however, ts on the right Bide. Of its mistakes we win have something' to say later onj 'There is a well-defined prospect that the term "Oolumbla river salmon" will soon become neamtngle, If its has not already done bo. To euih an extent has the business of packing' inferior ftsh under false labels crown that it is now no uncommon thing for comimis slon gnen to be asked by Eastern and SoufJhern dealers for Columbia river salmon which Can be Bold at 75 or 80 cents a ense, whereas no true Columbia r.ver chinook salmon can be provided for less than fl, and from that up to H.EC. Tile Columbia river cannons are also complaining just now that sales are dull for their best product, while the cheap grade of salmon of the out svde rivers and bays of the coast, which U sold sit prices lesB than lost year, finds ready sale, frequently the demand ex ceeding the supply. These facts indicate that Columbia river salmon, Instead of being held to a high mark as the king of food fish, eligible to the tables of the well-to-do, who can afford to pay for a good article, is suffering a degeneration and taking Its place as an Inferior food product, sold to such cheap consumers as mining, logging and luimbeci.ng oamps, cotton and sugar pHantalttons, No one need be sur prised at this. It la the logical and In vd.taible .outcome of the reckleos fasltton In which a poor quality of fish has been scattered broadcast In Eastern markets bearing 'the choicest brands of Columbia river canners. It Is a matter of common knowltdge that last full some of the Columbia river oannerB packed' the Call run of salmon, which f,s to the royal ohlnook what the neck steak Is to the tenderloin, and which, after once in fresh waiter deteriorates in dolor and flavor Very rapidly, In cans bearing attractive labels, Stating that they were packed at this and that place on the Columbia rlv er. Another practice which 'Is growing is that salmon on the Southern Oregon rivers and bays are packed under Col umbia river labels. iPuget Sound canners also ship their packs unlabeled to Asto ria, Portland or San Francisco, wOnre Ovey are repacked' under Columbia r.ver labels. The result of all this Js, of course, that. wherever the Columbia river Batavon trade has been established and brands become GOLD NOT THE BUTER. New York Tribune. An indignant correspondent, disgusted Wjth the Tribune's Btlaternenlt that the quantity of gold In use us money does not determine prices of comimod'.tles, wants to know: "Has goCd a value or not? Un less 'it has, how can it be taken as measure for other values? "If a mountain of gold should be discovered in Africa, would them not be an immedate ad vance In io.ll prices?" "If the term dollar is a mere arjtUvme'tlcal expression, why the objection to the s.lver dollars?' Why do not Increased productive power an aocumulialted wealUUh cheapen gold, as everything else 7" Km various ex- plosive remarks about Edward Atkinson and greonbacklsm will not interest the public amy rniore than tlhey 'interest the Trjbune, but 'the questions asked mei.it notice. Gold has value, which, depends upon the reflation betiweein mill the gold in the world not the yearly product and all .the danwund in the world. It Is not fixed Value, but Is more nearly the same ,n all commercial Countries at any given time fhUin that of any other commodity, because of the demand for 'It In all, and bedaiuise, with modern flacll.tles for its transportation and for carrying news of amy demand, the world's supply Is more fully and speedily available than Its sup ply of other comimodJtlea to meet any sudden domand, For these reasons Is the most widely uccepUd measure of value. A (mountain of gold discovered in Africa or anywhere else would not perceptibly alter the world's demand for any other commodity. lit might, and might iw, affect the volume of accumulated wealth and of cred'.ts available for the purchase of coOTilmUUt'-eS. If Vt should, prlpet!) might be affected; oltherwl'se not. Fo the voCume of that buying power affect the value of the goCd as of other articles The term dollar is not an arithmetical but stf.ctly a co.nimerclial express.on, and has aid over the commercial world dennbte meaning; with reference to prices of conumodltlets expressed in pounds, frames or marks. The precise root of troultte, 'in cose Of degraidatlon to a W.lver bas.s, is that the dottor would not mean whalt It dfjes now In the world s money or In 'the world's commerce, Wor would prices In doltiars then change in con formlty WJth chaniges In Ithe buying powir of pounds, marks or .francs, but would lluctuaite with the buCUon price of sliver, tereUae of productive power and ac- cumuloited wealth do not tend to cheapen gold or commodities either, but to raise the value of both. More buy.ng power, for the same things, tends to put up prices. But If the things have increased more Itlhuin the buying power, it is th other winy, relatively more thingis to be bousCit With roliaitlvely leas power to buy moans lower pr.ces. Thiat happens to be t'ite fact; 'human products increase more ijhuin unexpended WeaLth, so that prices tend downward. Gold has to take Its pant With oomimOdlitleB, because it has become essentalty demonetised t is no longer line Instrument with which most of the buying j done, or necessary in most of the buying. Bt is the measure of value only 'because the world's commerce linda It conven.ent and profitable to ex press wuiuts of Other commodities in terms of k'jIU. . Tiie greenback theory la absurd, be cause ,t sens up a pretended, measure of value which has no relaton, and is ells lintviv ..n'-ti.l.iil ita 1iia,vA ni oons'ta.nit re known, there is fl scraimUe to supiily such huitton to the measureiment Cn which the trade and fill orders for such brands as world's prices are made. If we cut adrift from t'tie infasuremcnta which govern the world's commerce, we only rob our selves. If our f r end cannot grasp that fact, he is at least as far from the truith as Mr. Arfk.iuon, at the other ex treme, who Imag.nes that prices are de termined by the quantity of gold com pared with the quuntJfy of things to be bought. cheaply as possible. The result s that the firet-clajsa and higher-priced salmon Is hindered or stopped In its sales by the spurious and cheaper artlcte. The next thing 1s that the Columbia river salmon itseCf Is d.scredUed, consumers no longer like it, and Its glory has departed. This is the situation and it calls loudly for remedy. Self-interest, one would think, Should pieveni. the practice. But it does not, and the evil seems to be on the increase. The rlgh'teausCy Indignant pecker of one year may be the mercenary scoundrel of tiiut'her. Probibly the only recourse .win be the liw, wi th a penalty, half of whWh will go to the .nformer. Canners would appeal to low who now content themiseJves with mild Impreca tions. Washington has a Stringent law on ithe subjwt, which is said to work ef fectively In practice." 'HUllUHTER PROSPECTS.

Gun- derinan, of Dlmondale, Mich., we are permitted to make this extract: have no hesitation in recommending Dr. King s New Discovery, as the re sults were almost marvellous in the case of my wife. While I was pastor of the Baptist Church at Rives Junc tion, she was brought down with Pneumonia, succeeding La Grippe. Ter rible paroxysms of coughing wculd last hours with little interruption and it seemed as if she could not survive them. A friend recommended Dr. King's New Discovery; It was quick In its work, and satisfactory in Its re sults." Trial bottles free at Chas. Rogers' Drug Store.
