Wheat will probably drop, under
the pref-s >re of big yield, to fifty cents
a bushel. No one expects it to go
lower and it may not go this low. Put
what Oklahoma farmer would not be
happy to get 50 cents a bushel? This
price would mean eight to ten million
dollars brought into this territory for
this one crop alone — more money than
Oklahoma has realized in the aggre-
gate from wheat since the opening.

Protkotjox is gaining ground so
rapidly among the democrats that they
have been unable to agree upon a line
of opposition to the republican tariff
bill in the senate. They came to-
gether in caucus the other day and
tried to develop a line of opposition,
but were surprised to learn that many
of their members had amendments
proposing to increase the tariff on pro-
ducts from their own states, which
fact, of course, made it impossible for
the party to enter auy united protest j
against the protective features of the
bill. The result is that the debate:
will be a "go as you please" so far as
the democrats are concerned, and that
members of that party will come to
the front with appeals for even a j
greater protection than that now
granted in the bill.
avenue. Driver Anderson was driving
his heavily loaded wagon east toward

lean, long-suffering animal, and was
evidently doing his best with the load,

pedestrians expostulated with him,
but that only seemed to anger the roan
more, for he beat a rattling tattoo on
the j>oor ribs of the old nag, swearing
like a trooper.
Suddenly out of the crowd stepped a
tall young woman, her cheeks flushed
nnd her eyes blazing w Ith anger.

reach Anderson's whip. lie paid no

Six or seven times the hush had de-

Warner, of Winnetka. She insisted on

thinking he had suffered enough, asked
for his release on the promise to lessen

THE CROP OUTLOOK.
Henry Clews, in his last financial let-
ter, alludes to the marvelous reports
of wheat yield from Oklahoma, but
suggests, very graciously, that these
reports "may be tinged by the charac-
teristic enthusiasm of that sanguine
population." This is a happy way to
put it. If the "fake correspondent"
has done no more than to give to of Ok-
lahoma the idea of "characteristic
enthusiasm" and indicate a "sanguine
population," then be is not so bad as
painted. Clews, however. Is more
kindly in allusions to the Oklahoma
fakir's penchant for exaggeration than
most people are. 0
Of the general wheat outlook the
Clews letter says:
"Naturally, Wall street keeps a keen
eye upon the crop prospect, which is
already becoming au element of buy-
ing. At present, the conditions favor
a phenomenal crop of spring wheat.
The failures in the winter sown crop
are being compensated to a large ex-
tent by ploughing the wheat in and
filanting corn in its stead. Reports
ndicate an altogether unexpected
crop of wheat in Oklahoma, a recent
press dispatch states that the yield
may reach 20,000,000 bushels, which
however may be tinged by the charac-
teristic enthusiasm of that sanguine
population. The crops along the route
of the Northern Pacific are reported
as promising an excellent yield. Pres-
ident Thomson of the Pennsylvania
railroad, after a tour of Inspection
over his system of roads, says. "The
universal opinion in the west is that
the crops of the coming season will be
unusually heavy. Altogether, I comu
back with the feeling that the time is
not far distant when we will see a de-
cided improvement in railroad traffic.
If it is possible to obtain some favora-
ble legislation at the hands of con-
gress, which will enable railroad man-
agers to feel more confidence in the
future, I have no doubt that additional
