The Army or Cut Worm.
Worms are doing considerable dam
age to root crops in Clackamas county
and from reports that are now coming !
in daily, His evident that the territory
covered by the worms is becoming more
widespread. Farmers, who have lived
' in the east, pronounce the pest the no
table army worm, that has done so
much damage in the east at intervals.
However, the experimental station at
the State agricultural college, pro
nounces them not the regular army
worm, but something similar, and rec
ommends spraying with Paris green.
This has been tried with good effect on
several Clackamas county potato fields.
The worms were first observed in the
clover fields, but since that crop was
harvested have made their way to
garden and root crops, and in some in
stances have attacked the potato fields.
R. H. Tabor says that they are now
working on his prune trees, and in one
instance be observed that a worm had
bored half way through a large prune.
Near Wilsonvllle, in some fields where
(he clover has been cut, the worms
have eaten off all the green sprouts
cIobb to the ground, and are numerous
in that section. William Brobet, near
Wilsonville, saved his onion patch by
digging a deep ditch all around the field,
flaring bacK from the top so that the
worms could not crawl out. At inter
vals he dug pils in the bottom of the
ditch, where the worms collected and
Charles F. Wagner Bays that the
worms almost took possession of Peter's
store at Wilsonville, at one time, and
attempted to feed on lemrns and other
articles. The potato patches near clo
ver fields, are almost ruined. W. B.
Partlow, of Mount Pleasant, says that
he tried Paris green on his potato vines,
which drove them underground, and
they are now feeding on t lie tubers.
W. 8. Hurst, of Aurora, was in town
Wednesday, and repoi ted that in some
instances they had attacked the hop
vines, but did not believe that they
would effect any injury at present. He
claimed that Paris green had proven
effective, where it had been used as a
In the East the army woi in is said to
appear only at long intervals, and they
take circumscribed areas of the country
in streaks. They appear only after f
long hot and rainy season, which is be'
lieved to haye caused the appearance of
tiie worms here.

N. W. Bowiand,
The seventh annual assembly of the
Willamette Valley Chautauqua Associa
tion closed Saturday night with a grand
display of fireworks. The attendance
far exceeded any previous day of this
assembly, hundreds of people coming in
from Portland and various sections of
Clackamas county. While the number
of actual campers' tents were about 20
less than last year, the average daily at
tendance, barring the big days of former
a semblies, broke the record for ordinary
days. The management will be en
abled to payoff all the expenses of
this assembly and the indebtedness of
(500 incurred in making building im
provements. This is . regarded aa re
markable, considering the fact that no
Sam Jones or Bryan was here this rev
son to attract a multitude. It is a nota
ble fact that the attendance has steadily
increased during the past few days, and
the management is well pleased with
the results. The clasawork has been
an attractive feature of this assembly,
and the attendance was never better at
the class lectures, owing to the capabil
ity of the instructors.
At the annual Ebnsiness meeting the
officers and Board of Directors were re
elected as follows :
President, W. G. Hawley, Salem;
vice-president, 0. H. Dye ; secretary. J
W. Gray j treasurer, T. F. Ryan j ground
manager, II. E. Cross; other directors,
J, T. Apperson, E. E. Oharman, W. E.
Oarll and G. A. Hardiiig. .
This afternoon President W. C. Haw-
ley's history class presented him with
two elegantly bound historical volumes
The presentation address was made by
Vice-President C. H. Dye, of the Chau
tauqua Association. In his response of
appreciation Mr. Hawley 'aid that one
of the books was one that he had long
wanted for his library.
All the officers re-elected did excellent
work. An attempt was made to defeat
Professor J. W. Gray for re-election as
secretary, but it fell wide of the mark
He has made a capable secretary, and
labored hard to advance the best in
teresta of the Chautauqua Assembly.
The management of the Chautauqua
At eembly did the best they could under
the circumstances, and are to be com
mended. II. E. Cross, as the ener
Ketic ground manager, had his hand
Many people do not seem to realize
that the true Chautauqua idea is the
classwork, which was of unusual excel
lence this vear. Nowhere elsa can one
get the very cream of information, pre-
sented in an interesting and practica
ay, than here, i. tie lectures and pro-
grams on tr.e auditorium platform an
only a limited portion of the attraction
in Gladstone Park.
The management already contoni'
plate some notable improvements for
next year. One is a grand Btaud on the
athletic grounds, another i.i a package
tent; and it is also probable that eomo
ivine of national reputation will be
secured to preach sermons on Sundays
and an admission fee will be charged

Fallowing is an extract from a letter
littenbv Charles E. Bray, dated at
Cape Nome, June 30, and addressed to
his wife, who is spending the summer
here with her daughter, Mrs. J. E.
Hedges. Mr. Bray was formerly a resi
desident of Oregon City, and left Seat
tle on May 20, for Cape Nome :
''I began work as a musician a week
ago, June 23. I get $17.50 per night,
and $2 per hour for overtime. It is im
possible at the present time to tell what
the future of this camp will be. Many
say that the bottom will drop out in tbe
next 30 days. People are coming and
going all the time, ami ra iny who came
in on the steamers returned 011 the same
boat. There U an air of uncertainty
that seems to pervade the whole propo
sition. The beach diggings are practic
ally worked out. No mining is done on
the beach in front of the town, which is
occupied by thousands of tons of lumber
and other freight for a mile or more. . I
was a week in finding my stuff, which
was scattered along thti beach for half a
mile. On the beach is heavy machinery,
some of which is already partly covered
with sand , and it may never be removed
from where it was unloaded. There are
boxes containing all kinds of luggage
smashed and broken ; boues of onions
with the sprouts sticking out in all di
rections; pianos waiting lor their owners
to come and claim them,while oue bears
a placard, "For Sale."
Following is a letter received by
Elmer Dixon, 1st vice president of the
Oregon Homoseekers Immigration
Exchange, which shows the necessity
of calling the attention of Eastern peo
pie to Clackamas county . Unless the
people ol the county make a concerted
effort to bring Clackamas county to the
notice of immigrants, the newly formed
organization will reap no benefits o: an
imigration which it is making a deter
mined tffort to bring about. The fol
lowing inquiry is one of tiie many that
are being mad?:

Logan Cheese Factory. J
Barney Fallert, who was in town Wed
nesday, stated that the Logan cheese
factory is now turning out 150 to 200
pounds of the product daily, which is
marketed in Portland and Oregon City,
and the stockholders are well pleased
with the outlook. The Logan Cheese
Manufi during Company is an incorpo
rated coneern.and the factory is operated
strictly on the co operative plan. At
present, milk is taken from only the
stockholders, who reside within a radius
of three miles of the factory, no stock
holder being permitted to hold more than
10 shares. Instead of paying for the
milk at a stated rate per pound, each in
dividual stockholder is to be paid for tbe
milk famished pro rata, after the opera
ting expenses for a stated period are paid
in full. A record of each lot of milk u
kept, after being tested for butter fat,
thus giving each stockholder a pro rata
share in the profits of the concern. The
factory started on May 7, but tbe cheese
has to be storeu for 30 days before it is
ripened sufficiently to be put on the
market, and it is usually sold to grocers
on 30 days' time, so the returns are not
yet in from sales sufficiently to enable
the management to know just what the
stockholders will receiye per pound for
thnir millr Hnwnvnr. thn mftnaiwrs o'
the concern are all good business farm
ers, and believe that the co-operative
plan will prove a success. The plant,
which is the best obtainable, is paid for,
the company having no back indebted
ness to meet. New stockholders are be

year. At present ths stockholders are
handling all the cows that they can keep
profitably, but it is their intention to
grow less wheat next year, and plant
portions of their lands in clover, rape
and root crops that will produce butter

that double the number of cows can be

Change In Woolen Mills Management.
A deal has been consummated where
by R. Jacobs, S. Jacobs, O. G. Jacobs
and Adolph K. Jacobs dispose of their
stock in the Oregon City Manufacturing
Company to L. Brown and M.Brown,do
ing business in San Francisco as Brown
Bros., and B. Buderman. A rumor had
been current for several days that such
deal had been made, but Tuesday
Messrs. Brown and Buderman gave out
the information that the purchase had
con mado a..J that they would assume
charge in a short time.
Since about 18ti6j the Browns and Ja-
:obses have been associuted together as
stockholders in the woolen null, but of
late years the latter have had absolute
lontrol of the factory. This condition re
cently led to litigation in the United
Slates court, but the matter was com
promised by Judge Bellinger appointing
fifth member of the board of
directors as a peacemaker. At one time
the late W. S. Ladd owned one-third of
the stock in the concern, but he disposed
of his Interests to the Jacobsoa and
This woolen, mill was started by Ma
jor Thomas Oharman and the late Ar
thur Warner, aided by a number of
farmers who took stock in the concern.
The capacity of tho mill has been almost
doubled in tho past 15 years, and a soap
factory and tannery have been added to
the manufacture if woolen goods. He
lore the paper mills were built the wool
en mill for many years was the Only in
dustrial enterprise here, and has con
tinuously given employment to a large
number of hands,as the mill never clowd
except for absolutely necessary repairs.
The compensation for the blocks of
stock transferred, or to be sold, has not
been made public, but those in a posi
tion to have a good knowledge of the
property estimate the value at about
$100,000, although the water power is an
especially valuable trauchiso. Mr.
Brown stated today that no change
vouldbemade in th workfng force at
the mill under the new management.but
that two of their men would be sent here
to assume general control.
A Mountain of Gold-Bearing Ore.
J. V. Harless, of Molnlla, who was in
town Tuesday, has just returned from
the quartz ledge owned by himself and
his father, Jacob Ilarless, on Henline
Creek, between the Molalla and Sana
am rivers, about 30 miles from Molalla
Corners. Mr. Harless has been doing
some development work on the ledge,
and brought in samples of the ore taken
from a 50-foot tunnel that assays $0 to
the ton in gold and carries traces of
copper, lead, sine and iron. While the
ore is of low grade, there appears to be
almost a whole mountain of the ledge,
and mining men have given favorable
opinions cotieerning the property. The
rock has a limestone spar appearance,
and is different from any quartz yet
found in Western Oregon, although
mining men who have been to Alaska
say that the ore is very much like the
low-grade article found in the Treadwell
mine. Some of the quartz in Eastern
Oregon also has a similar appearance
There is a porphyry formation iti the
vicinity. Mr. Harless says that Messrs
Riser and Kelly are doing fairly well
with a placer mine on the upper Molalla,
which is operated on a limited scale
The Harlesses are well-to-do farmers,
but have great faith in tho mineral de
velopment of Clackamas and Marion
counties. It is their intention to do
more development work on tire mine in
September, have further tests made and
try to interest capital in the venture.
