SHIPS BIG BUNG rs ANNUAL CROP W1U PLOW rP Ashland Puts Up Modern Business Blocks. MANY to Away City Sends Bushels of Wheat, Thus Taking First Place In United States. CON'DOX, Or., Feb. 2. (Special.) The latest estimate of the .amount of gram olready shipped and that remaining to be shipped from Condon is 1.30U.000 bushels. According to this showing. Condon Ls the largest primary grain shipping point in the United States and, as far as can be learned. In the entire world. The point which has heretofore claimed the honor of being the largest primary grain shipping point in the world is Ritzvllle. Wash., its supremacy being claimed oi the basis of shipping 1.250,0U) bushels. From iigures obtained from the best authorities on the subject. l,100.ono bushels of wheat and barley have already been received by the warehouses and mill here. And to this must be added .the large amount that is yet scattered over the country waiting to be hauled to town bethere fore Spring. It is safe to say that 200.000 remains in Condon's territory a making in, brought yet bo to bushels grand total of 1.300.000 bushels to be shipped from Condon alone. No less remarkable is the estimated output of grain In every section of Gilliam County, the total of the estimates of the different stations exceeding the amount to be shipped from Condon. It must also he taken into consideration that many thousands of bushels of grain harvested along the borders of the county are shipped from nearby railroad points in the adjoining counties. The total of the number of bushels shipped from these points added to the amounts shipped from different stations in" Gilliam County places the enormous output of Gilliam County at 2.7.y.000 bushels. At least fiXU0 bushels of wheat and barley are kept for feed and seed, thus bringing the total amount of grain raised The In the county to 3.350.O00 bushels. amount of wheat shipped from Gilliam County, if made into flour and then into 120.000,000 loaves would make broad and these placed end to end would reach a. distance of Ifi.OSS'i miles, or over three-fifth- s of the distance around the earth. These statements are. no doubt, a great surprise to the majority of the people of this section as well as other, sections of the. state, as very- few people have given this matter a thought, every ono being well satisfied with the returns received. At the average price of 70 cents per bushel, as was received this year for wheat, which made up the greatest share of the crop output, part of the great wealth of Gilliam County can be easily computed. It means that about ?1, 750.000 will bo received and divided among the farmers of Gilliam County for wheat alone. To this large amount must be added the proceeds from other vast resources, such as cattle, horses, sheep, hogs. etc.. which will prove beyond a doubt Gilliam's untold wealth. In speaking of the crop of the coming season, the farmers are all looking forward to a still better year. Many ranchers are going into wheat raising on a larger scale than ever before. - FIEIj DOWN AT Wash., Feb. 2. ( Special.) It Is conceded today that 20 per cent of the hop acreage in the Yakima Valley will be plowed up this year, many growers declaring that they have picked their last hop. Sev. eral among the most prominent growers, including such men as A. B. Weed. W. P. Sawyer, Zack Hawkins, Bunnell Brothers and G. A. Allen will displace their hop acreage with fruits and hay, potatoes and onions. The school section, near this city, which has been noted for its fine hop fields for years, will be deprived of its last vine this season. A few growers familiar with hop flg uros predict that the yield of the Yakima Valley this year, computed on the basis of an average crop, will not exceed 10.000 bales The average prod-iof the valley ls about 26,000 bales. Last year the yield was only 18,000 bales, but there were many fields that were not picked, perhaps a fourth of the acreage. It may truthfully be said that there is a strong feeling here against fur, ther speculation in hops. Other crops in this district pay such greater profit, many of them are grown with less risk and command a much better market throughout the season. The tendency to plow up the hop fields and devote the land to other crops is naturally growing rapidly, purely as a business proposition. PEXDLETOS Mild Winter Causes Small Demand and Prices Fall. FOR OIL- - KLAMATH FALLS, Or., Feb. 2. (Special.) The Klamath Oil Company has been incorporated and Is about to complete arrangements for the installation of a complete rig for sinking the first well at a point near Bonanza. Oil indications have Induced the sinking of a well, which it is believed will disclose that the Klamath Basin is possessed of a great petroleum field. Substantial- men of . the county are backing the new company, and Insure that extensive development will follow. Investigations "have been under way some time by representatives of Southern California operators, and a great many oil leases have been recorded recently. Liquor Issue in Jackson. ASHLAND. Or., Feb. 2. (Special.)' One of the most potent political organizations in the forthcoming campaign in Jackson County promises to n movement, the leadbe the ers of which are girding on their armor. They announce their intfntion of carryanti-saloo- ing the war against the saloon into every precinct of Jackson County. Ashland's "dry" vote at the recent city election has unquestionably given an impetus to the movement to put the whole county "dry," and many believe, that the Prohibitionists have a good chance of carrying the day. Medford, heretofore a strong saloon and license town, it Js said, has seen a great change in sentiment, and the vote there under the local option law in June promises to be pretty evenly divided.

The Horticultural Institute held under the auspices of the Oregon Agricultural College and the local organization of the Grants Pass Fruitgrowers' Association took place in. the opera-hous- e yesterday. Many fruitgrowers were present. The " Fruitgrowers' Association took special pains to invite men of experience and who were fully capable tit presenting their subject's on the programme, in the most practical way. Following the principal addresses, discussions were permitted, which at times became very en- thusiastic. A very broad subject and full of practical points was that of Professor Claude I.

ROSEBURG, Or., Feb. 2. (Special.) Federal building a certainty is the opinion of those most interested here. Late Thursday evening. M.

There, are four departments here, the Weather "Bureau, the Postoffice. the Land Office, and the largest Forestry Department In the West. The data sent by Mr. McCoy fe the last thread to weave before the bill becomes an Issue in the House, the measure for the $125,000 building now being in the hands of the committee on public buildings and grounds. It is said the Oregon leaders have agreed all other Oregon Federal to abandon structures, under the agreement that the Roseburg structure will be allowed.

The new structure will contain 12 rooms each of which will be equipped with all that Is latest in a modern educational Institution and will replace the present high school. The latter will be used for the Intermediate grades. The number of children attending school at Hood River fs said to be the greatest of any town In the state in proportion An effort was made to Its population. last year to secure a union high school which would provide for the advanced pupils of both town and valley but was voted down. Failing in this proposition the citizens of Hood River took up a local high school and were successful in rapidly-growin- g carrying it through. Do Women Always Get in the Way?

"Yes," returned the passenger, "I have noticed It frequently. Women demand and receive, as a rule, every sort of consideration from men In public places Men step out of their proper place on the right of the sidewalk to permit a woman to pass when she approaches on the wrong side; men walk out 'nto the street without a murmur to get by a bevy of women congregated at the approach to a a spot they insist upon appropriating without leav'ng a gangway' for those who wane to use the crossing; they crowd at ticket-offic- e windows and hold prolonged conversations either with the ticket-selle- r or with each other, apparently oblivious of th- - fact that people behind them may be In a hurry to be waited upon, whereas men, again as a rule, will step aside on the approach of a woman or will attend to his business at the window as txpedi-tiousl- y as possible, more especially if others are waiting. "Now, my explanation ls that most women are supremely indifferent to the comfort or convenience of others; for the fact Is they do not discriminate bar tween sexes when they have an advantageous position." ."Well, boss, I don't understand all them big words, but I do understand that women get powerful in the way when they gits on my car." shot back the boy as the elevator started upward. g, Jt Means to Live.
