CONDITION OF CROPS
SECRETARY WILSON THINKS DAM
AGE REPORTS EXAGGERATED.
Say3 Claims That This Year's Har
vest In Canadian Northwest Will Be
Ssriouoly Dimlniehed May Have
Some Foundation in Fact.
Chicago, May 7.--TI10 reports of
damage to tho crops which Imvo been
so numerous of Into, owing to the un
reasonable weather and tho ravages of
bugs, have been greatly exaggerated,
according to James Wilson, secretary
of agriculture, who Is in Chicago.
"Spring seeding Ib a. little back
ward," said Mr. Wilson, .''on account
of the cold weather, but there Is
plenty of time between now and tho
last of September to grow a crop of
nil hinds or grain. In Minnesota and
tho Dakotas, where we get most or our
spring wheat, seeding has been de
layed about two weeks, but with n few
days of warm sunshine planting will
be in full swing. While the weather
has been unreasonably cold In some
districts, It has not been severe
enough to retard plowing, and my ad
vices are that tho ground In these
states hns been nearly all made ready
to receive the seed. Wo will have
warm weather in a few dn-ys now and
1 don't see what is to prevent a nor
innl crop of spring wheat In these
"As regards the condition northwest,
tho claims being mnde that this year's
hnrvost will be seriously diminished
may have some foundation. Accord
ing to what I oonsidor authentic ad
vices from that section, tho weather
Ikis been so cold that plowing has
been almost impossible. In past
years tho Canadian farmer has gen
erally lort his plowing for th spring,
and this year he finds hlmscir in a
bad predicament. In a normal year
seeding would bo about hall' finished
In Manitoba and adjoining provinces,
but I am told that tonuy the fanners
there have not got tho ground ready
lor u'celving the seed, oven if the
weather was favorable for this work.
Howe'ver, such n condition in tho
Canadian northwest will not make a
great deal of difference when this
year's crop is harvested. The Cana
dian farmer grows but a small pro
portion or the total crop or wheat an I
1 am or the opinion that the deficiency
there, If there be any. will hardly b
noticed when harvesting throughout
the world hns been completed.
"In the southwest there have been
numerous reports for tho past three
weeks or damage being wrought by
green bugs. These reports of damage
to the winter wheat have been grossly
exaggerated. 1 am in a position
where I get as good information us
anybody regarding the growing crops.
While I have had many reports about
the green bug, the damage wrought
by theso Insects has been local In
every instance and there has not been
any geneial attack by this pest, as
some people are endeavoring to make
it appear. From my knwwledge of the
southwest, whore so much of our win
ter wheat is grown, the advices at
hand lead me to believe that that dis
trict will have its usual crop this year.
This applies to oats and corn as well
as wheat. The crop as a whole may
be delayed somewhat In ripening, but
not enough to cause any apprehension.
Corn will suffer must, as plowing for
this crop has been delayed consider
ably, but 1 sec no cause lor appre
hension. Theie Is considerable grain

Boise, Ida., May S. As a precau

speaking will be stopped In Holse dur
ing the trials of William D. Haywood
and the other leaders of the Western
Federation of Miners for the alleged
murder of Frank Steunenberg. It Is
feared that freedom of speech In tho

disorders and Mayor Haines has de
cided that it will be better to Issue

Tho Ever Present Problem of Providing
For th Future.
There is one problem that dominates
the home an obtrusive, pervasive
problem that ofttimes fills the whole
horizon of life one that, like Banquo's
ghost, "will not down." It Is tho ever
present question of home financing.
When we have mastered the "to have.'' ,
the problem of the "to hold" confronts
us. It Is the question of providing for
the home which can never be properly
answered until we realize that "pro
vide" is a verb that should ever be
conjugated In two tenses, present and

of trying to live without one. There
