T HE BATTLE over t )i o Kovi-ruui h if, ami tin; attempted impeachment of Governor Hulzcr, of Now York, promises to develop some of the biggest scandals ever stirred up in this country. Tammany thought it had easy sailing Ami that Hulzer would lay down, but it was mistaken. Hulzer will fight and from present indications, he will have plenty of help. It will probably prove, too, that Tammany has made the big mistake of its his tory, for before this fight is over, it, and its methods will be shown up ami advertised in such a way that its power will lie broken forever and it put out of business. While, the newspapers of New York nre nearly all against him, there are a few that stand by him in his fight, and one of the theso is the Knickerbocker I'rosa, of Albany. This paper has always opposed Hulzer, but it comes to his support now because, as it says, "the opposition to him is the opposition of the enemies of good government aroused because the governor finally reached a point where he would not betray the people of his state further." "Governor Hulzer," it says, is just beginning to be a man ami to put up a real fight for the people of the stnte of New York against Tammany and the Democracy which controls almost every department of tho state." it points out that the removal of Hulzer will turn over to Charles l' Murphy all official positions In the state from the highest to the lowest and says that "the people of the stato will be completely terrorized." "Governor Hulzer," it again says, "is making one of tho grandest fights over made in political history." That paper likewise declares that Hulzer cannot be impeached without dis regarding the constitution and the laws of the state. It points out that under tho constitution, tho governor can be impeached only for "corrupt ami wilful misconduct in the office of governor," ami calls atontion to tho fact that the offenses charged against him, if committed at all, were committed before he became governor and therefore do not make him liable to impeachment even though they should muko him liable to conviction upon trial in tho established Courts of tho state. Tho same paper makes the point Hint the legislature has no power to con duct impeachment proceedings except in regular session, or at most, in special session regularly and constitutionally convened and it declares that the pres ent session is not even a constitutional and legal session and is itself in ses sion only through high-handed, irregular ami unconstitutional methods. Ho thoroughly is that newspaper convinced of the irregularity and illegal ity of the entire proceedings that it declares that If the judges of the court of appeals, the highest in that state, should consent to sit with the senate and to sustain tho proceeding;, '"se judges would deserve) to have said of them nil that has been said by Koosevelt in the lust few years. It makes the follow ing apoal to the press of New York: "The newspaper of this state should become sane, they should recognize and support in their news columns and in their editorial columns the provis ions of the constitution of the state of New York, They should recognize and support tho provisions of tho penal law of the state of New York." It would seoin from this that the proceedings against Hulzer are even more high handed and do even greater violence to law and constituted authority than Hulzer himself is accused of. In view of tho fact that it is Tumninny milking the tight against Sul.cr, one is perhaps not justified in believing anything said against that official even if he has himself shown several very weak spots, at least, until the proof of guilt shall become too conclusive for further doubt. THE FUTURE Or THE APPLE. TIIK (IM'lKTION is being asked by fruitgrowers, "Why is it that with only a lll,(l(lO,(00.arrel crop of apples last season, compared with a crop of f0,IKl0,OO0 barrels as an average for the five seasons from lima to 11HI7, that low prices prevailed last year and there was much talk of over production 1" Evidently there Is something wrong with the apple market when this stnto of affairs cbii exist. (In top of this shortage, the pop ulation of the country is from ten to twenty millions greater than in 1 10.", ami the demand, Instead of falling off, should have shown a decided increase. We think the answer is not fur to seek or diff icult to find, and it is told in few words, and that is that tho prices nro too high. Tho scarcity of beef has sent the price booming, and although especially hero in America, beef, or meats nf some kind, are a prime necessity, tho demand has fallen off, and con sumption has been greatly reduced. This not because the taste of the American has changed, but because tho prion has compelled the using of something else, a resorting more and more to a vegetable diet. if the price will make tho American families cut out their ineut, which has always been a huge element in tho food nf our people, it will certainly cause tho same result when it is applied to a product that, while with many a favor ite food, is not by any means a necessity. For ninny reasons the price of apples has advanced steadily In the markets of tho east, until for good quality, it has become almost prohibitive. Of late years It can safely be said that tho price of first class apples has biin double that of wheat. Wheat has run well below the dollar-mark, while apples have ranged from I..10 to -.."iO a bushel. Orchard lands have gone up to big figures in cousciucuco of this, for the on hardist has made big money. The trouble is ho has made too big money, or at least, the trade has. Transportation will account for the high prices in part but the fact remains that tho orchardist has gotten big prices at his orchard, That Is why the apple market Is suffering, not from over production, but from Uniler consumption) because the price, like that of beef, ha driven tho consu mer to seek, and find, a substitute. Ilecnuso he was able to find th.it snhsti t lit o he has iptit using apple, ami Is using something else. While the consumption of apples fell off ii,(I(MI,ihki bushels lust enr, Hint of oranges and bananas increased at a startling rate, If this statement "Is doubted, all that is necessary is for the doubter to visit any commission house 'and keep his eyes open. Let him note the great stack of banana and orange boxes, and then take a look at the apple supply. The answer to the question of the slack demand for apples i there, lint I theie is anothor question that is of far deeper import to the apple grower, and that is not how he cau recover his lost market, but whether he can recover it I at all. High prices have brought a rival to the uppio into the market and the public taste has been educated up to a liking for tho rival that did not exist a lew years ago. It is indeed a serious question whether tho apple will ever oc cupy the commanding place it once held. While it will always bo welcome, it no longer is the whole thiug. It must divide its kingdom with the banana, the orange, tangerine, pineapple, and tho hundreds of tropical fruits that railroads, roll igerathju. and modern methods have made available at all seasons of the vear, and everywhere. Only recently has I he banana been a. bidder for popular favor, but it has gained a foothold that cannot be loosened. A nation's taste must bo educated up In the use of food stuffs. Witness the tomato. Fifty yeais ngo, it was used in this country as an ornament, a curiosity. It was a "love apple" then, sometime called a "Jerusalem apple." It was not supposed to be fit for food, ami was even called poison. Now it is one of the most generally used vegeta bles in the country, especially as "a canner. This is tho great question that today faces tho apple-grower, for conditions have forced a rival to his product on the people and the public tasto has been educated to a liking; for the tropi cal fruits that ha come to stay, and which tho apple grower must take into consideration when making his calculations as to crops and prices. An uuhiaxod view of the situation compels the belief that the apple-grower has got to fight for supremacy. Ho must get hi goods to market cheaply, and he must bo prepared to get smaller prices than ha been his custom, and the transportation companies will have to stand in and help him. Low prices can alono win the consumer bnck to his first love, the apple, and it is doubtful if even that will over put "the king of fruits" back on the throiio from which the tropical fruits have deposed him. THE SOUTHERN WAY HAS MERITS. THE TRIAL OF DKIliS at San Fruucisco has come to ail end and he has been found guilty of the charge of white slavery. This would be pleas ing news indeed if the end was in sight and the whole nasty mess could be dumped and forgotten, while the disgrace to manhood, Diggs, paid the penalty so far as the law could make him, in the penitentiary at hard labor. This, unfortunately, will not happen, and the public will be in flicted periodically for the next year or two with more of the disgusting af fair. Thcro will be a motion for a new trial because, somo juror chewed his tobacco left handed during the trial, or some other misconduct on the part of jurors that jeopardized the defendant's liberty ami his right to the "pursuit of happiness." When this has staved of the dirty beast's going to prison for a month or two, there will be an appeal, and this will put off the time of pun ishment for a year or more. In tho meanwhile there will be a splitting of hair and an "X-llay exam ination of the law for a legal loophole that will let Diggs avoid paying tho penalty for his beastly crime, and the foots will be overhauled in an effort to accomplish the samo results. In the end, it will most likely be discovered that Diggs will not be punished at all. Down in the South there would have been no trial, no insulting-the public with tho disgusting details, no dirty besmirching still more the soiled charac ters of the foolish girls. There would have been, instead, a news story that a man named Warrington, or Norris, had walked into the office of one Dings, ami without any superfluous conversation had blown a hole through the su'ni Diggs that would permit a dog to walk through him. There would have been a similar story with the name of Caminetti in place of that of Diggs. Tho cor oner's jury would havo returned a verdict of deliberate suicide, or words to that effect, and that would have been u 11 there was to it. The southern way is aboriginal, based on first principles, but it is decidedly efoctive. AND STILL WE LEAD ALL SALEk: In the greatest bargain-giving.

W. .lennings, of Portland, just to show how skillful he was with his gun, took ti shot at what he thought was a stray dog, while on a hunting trip near KoHohurg, Wednesday. Like shooting at ft noise, or1 moving brush, the shot found a mark, in this case it being the dog's tail which was shot off close to the dog' body. It if had been a stray dog, there might have been no kicking about the act other than such objection as the dog would naturally havo made, but a It happened the dog' owner wa s near, anil while the dog hud the most cause for being mad, he showed no signs of hydrophobia, but the owner did. The result was that Mr. Jennings paid 10(1 plunks for the damage done, and will bo content to let his marksmanship be questioned in tho future rather than prove his skill by trying it on a dog. if he had only knocked the bark off the dog, it would not have mattered. President lluerta, of Mexico, expresses the opinion that the American peo ple are not backing President Wilson in his stops to secure pence in Mexico. This is the result of such publications as "Below' the Hio Grande," a paper gotten out ill tho interests of the gang who would plunder Mexico, and want a free hand to do it. They would like to have the two countries go to war sn that the properties they havo grabbed would have the titles firmly settled in their favor, and the country then grabbed by tho United States, so that they could enjoy their ill-gotten gains in peace. , The Alaska Steamship companies have evidently allowed one of their best publicity agents to get away, for he ha certainly showed up in Africa. The dispatches from there Tuesday state that ti new gold field has been discovered in the llelgiuu Congo, nud that many of the roofs carry 70 percent gold. This would make the ore worth about half a million dollar a ton, which lays Alas ka in the penumbra on the other side of the shadow. There is nothing either immoral or indecent in the split skirt or, for that matter, in any other kind nf a garment. The wickedness of tho garment rests entirely in the salacious mind of men. There is no more vulgarity or inde cency in a woman showing a stockinged calf than there is in exposing a nakcu arm. The whole thing is merely a mutter of education, of custom. Those highly sensitive organizations that are shocked at. the Portola Poster, should take stops to have the Goddess of Liberty cover her shin bones mid draw a wrap of some kind around her palpitant ami plethoric bosom.
