Until the scandal I always followed Parnell and had a good deal of admiration for him on account of his persistency and shrewdnessi yet I never supposed that he was a man of such force us he has lately been proving himself to be Why this man is made of the stuff that Cicsars and Napoleons are formed of He would sacrifice a whole race to his per sonal ambition and it looks as though he had the strength to do so Like a Clciin Sweep LoyDoy Dec appearances all indicate that Parnell will sweep the country in bis first appeal Whether there will be a reaction on second thought or not it is too

Swindled on aiail Contract Idea tor the TiirilT on Tin Capital City News WASHINGTON Cm Dec sta tistical returns of the department of agri culture for December give the average farm prices for agricultural products by counties whish are consolidated in this office to obtain accurate averages for the several states State agents obtain simi lar estimates revise aud consolidate and forward state averages The department estimates as published can made from these duplicate aad independent sources of information which are in remarkable agreement aud may be relied upon as the true measure of value of crops iu the hands of the farmers The present corn crop is worth more than the last aud fanners will reieive more for it Unfor tunately districts of failure do not realize their portion of the advance In average vuluu The ILuw of lemand Controls The average price by present returns is 501 cents per bushel against 2S3 ceuts for the crop of au increase of 77 per cent It is the highest December price of the de Lidu except that of 1381 the only year in which the Uual average of condition was worse thaw that of the present season The average priue theu rose to 036 cents and that of the following year was 134 with a better crop than the preseut The next highest average is 4J4 in 1SS7 following three years of large crops and cheap corn The prices therefore depend upon tbe quantity grown in the yearplus the reserve from preceding years The present aver age shows that small crops are a sure cure for low prices and that the law of demand is still the main factor in making prices and profits The prices in the seven corn surplus states are Ohio 51 cents Indi ana 47 Illinois 43 Iowa 41 Missouri 44 Kansas 51 Nebraska 48 KKtimtiten of Wheat Vaijea The average farm value of the wheat crop as estimated is 84 cents per bushel against 69S for 1S89 an increase of 20 per cent on the price of last year The value of wheat is affected by the harvests of other countries as corn is not percepti bly and therefore prices are not entirely governed by the size of the home grown crop For example the crop of smaller than the present one brought but 77 ceuts in December while the crop of 1882 aggregating over 500000000 bushels the second largest ever grown sold at 88 cents at the same date OatH Prices Afleeted Ijy Corn The price of oats has responded sharply to the pressure of fl small crop and in creased demand because of a short corn crop The average is 433 cents against 23 ceuts last year it is the highest reported since 1SS1 An examination of records shows that abundance or scarcity of corn materially affects the value of this crop the two grulns being largely interchange able in use Rye like oats at C29 ceuts is higher than since 1881 and the sameis true of barley at B48 Buckwheat at 577 marks an advance over last year bnt is lower than in 1888 A Doom in Potatoes The deficiency in the potato crop has caused an advance in values in all sections of the country The average is 777 cents an increase of more than 90 per cent over the prices olf the past two years The re turns show slightly higher prices for to bacco tlmn has prevailed since 1887 The average Is reported at 77 cents per pound Hay alone of all farm products records a decline from last year The presenl price is per ton and the slight falling off is due to the increased product A NEW MARINE
