Washington, Deo. 10.-The ototlttical resouraesof the department of agriculture for December give tho average farm prices of agricultural products by counties, which are consolidated In this office to obtain acourato averages for the seyeral states. State agents obtain similar estimates, which they review and consolidate and forward as state averages. Tho department estimates as published are made from these duplicate and iudependent sources of information which are in remarkable agreement, and may be relied upon as the true measure of value of crops in the hands of the farmers. The present corn crop is worth more than the last, and farmers will receive more out of it Unfortunately districts of failure do not realize thsir portion of the advance in average value. The average price by present returnB is 50.1 cents per bushel, against 28 8 cents for tho crop of 1889, an increase of 77 per cent, tt Is the highest December price of the decade, except that of 1881, the only year in which .{ho final average'of condition was worse than that ot the present'season. The average price then ro3e to 63 8 cents, and that of the following year was 48 4 cento, with a better crop than the present. The present average shows that small crops are sure cure for low prices and tho law of demand is still the main factor in making prices and profits. The prices in the seven corn surplus states are: Ohio 51 cente, Indiana 47, II-UnoiB 48, Iowa 41, Missouri 44j Kashas' 51, Nebraska 48. Tho average farm value of :th^ ypneM crop as estimated is 84 cwte Pe* hWbel against69.8cent* for 1889,'an increase of 20 per cent, on the. price'of last year. The value of wheat is affected by tho harvests of other countries, a* corn ii not perceptibly, and therefore prices are act entirely goverusd l:y the price of the, home grown crop. The-price of oaw "uaa rlo-.l sharply to the preesura of a email crop a:\d increased demand bscauie of a Bhortcorv. crop. ' The average ts 4?.'i conts, Bgiias': 23 cents last year. It is the highest re-portt,-? since 1831. Ar. ssMcla&ttost ots records shows that th* ab�rManeo;iJr! scarcity of corn materially affects tho value of this crop, the two grains bib.Vi largely interchangeable In use. Bye, like oats, at 02,6 cento ishighor' thtn ia 1881,and the tamp is truo of b'.'.!: lo> at 04 9 cwtp, Buckwheat at M,7 cents marks an advance over last year, but is Iowpt than in 1888. Tbe deficiency in the potato urop has caused an advance in values ia all sections of tho country. The average is 77.7 cents, an increase of more than 00 per cent, over the prices of the two past yearB. The returns show slightly higher prices for tobacco than have prevailed since 1887. The average iB reported_at,7.7 oeats per pound. Hay alono of all farm products, records a decline from last year. The present price is $7.74 per ton, and the alight falling oft is due to the iacroassd products.

It wbb decided to give Brooklyn and New York a hearing on their request for a recount. This bill will not be allowed to delay the nctlon on the reapportionment bill, however. The discussion on the question ot the number of members that should compose tho next house showed a'sentiment favorable to 856. The discussion did not become partisan and the Democrats seemed satisfied. A Republican Cancui. Washington, Dec. 10,-About forty Republican senators were in the caucus to-night, endeavoring to agree upon some plan tor facilitating the transaction of business in the senate. Dissatisfaction was general with the present condition of the business, tbe western senators being particularly vehement in urging the necessity of immediate action to relieve tho financial stress. The friends of the eloction bill defended the management of that measure, but were willing to adopt a feasible course to secure speedy action on it. The result of the meeting was an agreement to keep the bill before tbe senate at lesBt for this week, to exhaust the debate. The senate will sit thirteen hours daily. If this does not avail, then a cloture resolution will bo proposed. To ea'isfy tho Bilver senators a committee of six will be appointed to aot with the Republican members of the finance committee to devise some means of financial relief for the country, with instructions to report to the caucua Mondoy. If the e'eotlon bill has not come to a voto by that time.the cloture resolution will be brought forward. If that fails, then tho election bill bo put aside and financial legislation preEsed to a conclusion. A Now immigration 11111.
