Spend Six Days in Camp ,Likc Regu
lar Soldiers.
After six days of regular Army camp
life, the youthful members of Company
A, Newlll's Rlvervlew Academy will re
turn to Portland today at 10:30 o'clock
A. M., boyish as ever, but bronzed
soldierlike, even if diminutive, and In
every way better for their outing.
Their encampment, as originally
planned, covered five days, but the
boys found the locality of St. Helens
so much to their taste and the encamp
ment so delightful that they begged for
another day. and with-the splendid re
ports of discipline in his hands. Princi
pal Arthur C. Newlll could not refuse
the request.
The boys, from all reports, have be
haved and enjoyed themselves splendid
ly. The most Important feature of the
reports furnished Principal Newlll by
the Regular Army man in command of
the camp. If that there has not been- a
single name entered on the sick roll
during the encampment. Next to that
in importance is the fact that the
guardhouse, although regularly estab
lished, has never been called Into use.
During the encampment the boys
have lived, acted and behaved like true
soldiers of the country. Even though
the vicinity of St. Helens would Indl
catlvely prescribe the peaceful soldier
life, the boys had the'Ir touch of real
excitement, but all on account of the
proverbial country swain.
From that unknown source from
which all rumors spring, the academy
boys learned that on some Indefinite
night a company of the Oregon Na
tional Guard would attack the camp.
This was sufficient to put the boys on
their 'guard, and mettle as well, and
the sentinels of the post became ex
ceedingly vigilant in their duty.
During the camp no real enemy ap
peared, but on Saturday night a late
country lover, wending his lonesome
way from farm to farm, apparently
wrapt In thought", lost his bearings and
stumbled Into the lines or the cadets.
The best commentary that can be made
of the cadets and the lucklessness of
the lover Is to say that the latter
spent the remaining hours of Saturday
night and all of Sunday in the guard
house. The company, upon Its arrival today
at 13:30 o'clock, will parade from the
dock to the academy.

Stephen's Cathedral last night H. D.
Ramsdell, Herbert Holman. M. C. Ban
field. John R. James. W. P. LewU and
William Phillips were elected members of
the chapter.
The routine business of the chapter was
also transacted and the work of the t
church discussed.
Telephone Police Chief as to
Place Where Decayed Meats.. Are
Made Into Sausage Gives Forth
Such Odors That Investi
.gation Is Made.
Odors from the slaughter-house of the
Pacific States Packing Company. Mac
adam road and Seymour street, became
so. strong last night that Captain Moore,
commanding the first relief, had to dis
patch Patrolman J. P. Fones to the scene
to see that the plant did not walk off.
"Is this police headquarters?""queried
a man who called up Captain Moore over
the telephone in the early evening.
"Yes. this Is headquarters."
"Well, great guns!" the man exclaimed,
"do you smell anything over this line.
That slaughter-house where they make
sausages from meat that Is Inconvenient
for other uses is In operation again. Oh!
but It's fierce! Is there anything you
people can do to stop It tonight?"
Captain Moore would not admit that
his gallant staff of patrolmen could npt
lend aid, no matter what the occasion,
and promised to send a policeman to
Patrolman Fones went, and up to a late
hour had not reported. Whenasked If he
felt any anxiety for the policeman. Cap
tain Moore replied that the officer, In
days agone, had held his own with the
cattlemen of the Western plains; had
held political positions of various kinds
and was thought to be fully capable of
taking care of himself In any sort of
Hardly had Captain Moore made his,
promise to the first man to call than an
other Indignant South Portland citizen
rang In. He, too. was up against odors
emanating from the sausage factory, and
wanted help.
During the evening scores of people
called up. asking the police to assist.
Later Patrolman -Fones returned from
the salughter-house to the patrol-box In
South Portland. He was unhurt, he stated
In a communication to Captain Moore.
He said that he" "thoroughly investigated"
the packing plant, and found "all quiet
there. No one but the engineer was
found." According to the report, the en
gineer was engaged In keeping the ice
plant In operation to keep down the
3:15 A. M. As The Oregonian goes to
press, the patrolman on the"South Port
land beat, under command of Captain
Bailey, reports that the slaughter-house
is still there. Some residents of the vi
cinity, he says, are sleeping, while others
are still calling for aid.
Committee From Women's Club
Finds No Admission.
Just before "the meeting of the Board
of Education adjourned, last evening. It
was discovered that the Fifth-street door
of the City Hall had "been locked almost
during the entire session. As It had .been
reported that a committee from the
Women's Club was to wait upon the di
rectors and protest against the merit sys:
tem for teachers, the other members at
once charged Herman Wittenberg with
conspiring with the janitor to lock the
door and keep the clubwomen out
In vain did Mr. Wittenberg declare his
"You were afraid to face them," said
Richard Williams.
"You fixed the janitor," declared J. V.
"Shameful!" said Mrs. President SItton.
"Now they'll go for you," cried R. K.
It's up to Mr.WTlttenbergto prove that
no delegation attempted entrance to the
municipal palace.
During the meeting Mr. Wittenberg re
ported that he had tried In vain to bring
together the architects who thought that
Architect Jones, who works for the board,
should not have the exclusive right to sub
mit designs for the proposed East Side
high school.
It was ordered that the we'll which once
supplied the Fulton School with water be
put In condition. The city water mains
do not extend that far south, and the
children have been forced to go to the
surrounding houses and ask for a pall of
water when throats went dry.

Big Meeting Will Be Held in
This City.
Growers Are Determined to Hold
Their Crops Until They Realize
Prices "yhlch They Think -Should
Be Given.
Hopmen.from all sections of the stato
came to town yesterday to attend the
growers' meeting, "which will bo held at
the Hotel Portland this afternoon. It Is
thought that about 90 per cent of the hops
remaining unsold In Oregon will be rep
resented at the meeting. The object Is to
form a combination of holders pledged to
withdraw their hops from the market for
60 days, or until a certain price, which
will probably be fixed at 30 cents, is
reached. It looks very much as if the
movement would be a success.
Among the arrivals yesterday were
George A. Dorris and W. P. Cheshire. Jr.,
of Erfgene; James Wlnstanley, secretary
of tho Oregon Hopgrowers Association:
John Cartwrlght and Conrad Krebs, of
Salem; T. A. Riggs. of Dallas: M. H.
Durst, of Wheatland. Cal., and James
PIncus, of Tacoma. Messrs. Dorris and
Cheshire carry the proxies of all the hop
growers In their section of the state, and
represent 154S bales. Mr. Cartwright has
the proxies of most of the producers of
Linn County.
What Durst Says.
Mr. Durst, who is the largest grower of
hops in California, is here to lend th
movement his support. He is the owner
ot ibot Dates oi hops of the lwH crop,
which have never been put on the market.
Mr. Durst Is a Arm believer in the future
of the market and declare thHt if th
Oregon growers will only stand by one
anotner tncy win secure their own prices.
"The brewers want the hops," said he.
"There Is ho possible way of getting
around that fact. They have not got
enough to carry them throush the heavy
brewing months, which are about to be
gin, and they must come to Oregon for
their supply. It Is due to the manipulation
of the shorts, and not to the brewing In
terests' that the price has been held back
for the last three months. At the same
time the market has not fallen so much,
only about i cents, in spite of all the
short sellers could do. That certainly ar
gues for a pretty healthy condition. No,w
let the Oregon growers get together, say
they will not sell under a certain price,
and the world Is theirs."
"A combination of Oregon growers."
said Mr. Wlnstanley, "will not only help
the market now, but will be of inestima
ble value in securing a good price
for the 1905 crop. Now is the time to
start right for next season's market."
California Hopgrowers Act.
The hopgrowers of California, who iiave
recently formed a combination, have sent
the following encouraging letter to the
growers of this state, which will be read
at the meeting, this afternoon.
To the Hopgrowers of Oregon: IV under
stand here there is to be a meeting In Port
land for the purpose of forming a pool. The
moment you form that poo! that moment
you will have won your fight. For if you
bind yourselves together on a price or a
time limit the bears will have lost all hope.
They have been expecting to see tho growers
of Oregon break. Already they have lout all
hope of getting any cheap hops In Washing
ton or California. In this state the growers
have made an agreement among themselves
that nothing under 30 cents can buy a pound
of their hops. There has not been a pound
of hops sold In. this state for the past three
months. In Sew York State the hops have
been bought up until there are now only
2000 bales, and these are In the hands of
very firm holders. The bears cannot look to
New York State. Washington or California
for their hoj;i Their hope lies In the weak
ening ot the Oregon growers.
It Is, therefore, a matter of vital Impor
tance, not only to your financial welfare on
your present holdings, but also for your i503
crop, that you pool. For a pool will offset
the tactics the bears are now working on
you to bring disaster In price on your 1904
crop as well as for contracts for 1005.
Each and every grower In Oregon should
go to his neighbor who has hops and see
that he attends the meeting in person. Each
and every grower should work on his neigh
bor who Is inclined to be a little weak-kneed
and try to induce him to stand up for his
rights, stand for Justice, stand for a Equate.
deaL Teach the manipulator not to gamble
on the hops that are now your property.
In England they have a pool. The good
effect of this could be seen Immediately
after It was formed. The market in England
advanced immediately, and the same thing
will occur In Oregon If you growers pooL
When you growers pool. It means a pool of
all. Universal. Cast Iron. If the Oregon
growers pool It will mean the withdrawal
from the market of at least 20,000 bales of
hops. Yes. It means more than that. It
means the withdrawal of all-hops In grow
ers' and other holders' hands in the United
States. With this country being at least
25,000 bales short and with 20.000 to 30.000
bales withdrawn from this market It will
mean an actual shortage of 50,000 bales.
With 50,000 bales withdrawn It won't bo
long before It will be absolutely Impossible
tor them to get along without your hops.
You will then get your price. You will then
have established a market.
It will be a big boost to the market
throughout the world when the England
growers. New York State growers. Washing
ton growers and California growera learn
The season for you to consider what you will wear
is here. We are showing the most complete lines
ever shown in Portland. LINEN MESH UNDER
WEAR, and they are all linen, GUARANTEED to
wear, GUARANTEED not to shrink, in union and
two-piece suits, $5.00 and 95.50 a suit.

that the Oregon growers have pooled their
hops. There will then be no more hope for
cheap hops for th bears. There will not be
one place In the world where they can buy
cheap hops, so above all we say to you. at
tend the meeting: see that your neighbor
attends; form the pool: see that all the
growers in Oregon who haye hops Join that
pool. Then they will hare to come to see
you: then they will have to pay your price;
then a reward Is yours.
The growers of England, Naw York Stat.

fornia, especially, hope you will have a
mammoth attendance and a rousing meet

force and accomplish your object. If you

Sonoma Growers Form a Pool.
SANTA ROSA. Cal.. April 24. The hop
growers of Sonoma County, who have
.still some hops on hand., have, entered
Into an agreement not to sell a pound
of hops for 60 days under 30 cents a
pound. There are said to be 1W0 bale? of
hops still In Sonoma County. The- grow
ers want to advance the price. It Is un
derstood that other counties have a simi
lar agreement.
Seattle and Tncotna Hope to Profit
by the Fair.
W. A. Mears, secretary of the North
Pacific Coast Jobbers" and Manufacturers'
Association, has returned from Seattle
and Tacoma, where he went the latter
part of last week to confer with the
northern members of the association in
regard to the policies of the organization
to be adopted as the outcome of the con
ference with the traffic men and the con
sequent concessions made to the Jobbers.
While on his trip Mr. Mears addressed
meetings of the business men and Job
bers along the lines of unity of effort and
Mr. Mears found the people of Tacoma
and Seattle waiting with a sort of fas
cinated anticipation for the end of the
Fair. Everyone in that part of the coun
try, so he reports, seems to have a deep
grounded Idea that the citizens of Port
land are to do the work while they get
the fruits thereof. The Eastern visitors
and homeseekers are about to come to
Portland to see the Fair and then go to
Tacoma and Seattle to find a resting
place from tho cares and troubles of the
East. In other words, Portland is to have
the Exposition and afterwards the tradi
tional slump, while Washington gets the
cream and licks the dasher to boot.
The good people of Washington, so Mr.
Mears explains, do not think that such
anticipations transgress the bounds of
brotherly love, but hold that as the ex
pected conditions, however sorrowful, can
not be stayed or hindered by them, they
can see no good reason for turning from
the benefits they may derive.
The decision of the railroad men in mak
ing amendments to the distributive rates
is a source of gratification to the citizens
of both Seattle and Tacoma. Mr. Mears
has found by his visit, and the announce
ment of changes In schedule Is awaited
first and lest

Turn on the Hose.
PORTLAND, April 2. (To th Editor.)
It looks very favorable for a season of swift
games of good baseball and we are entitled
to all there la coming to us. but we don't
want any more disorderly crowds. .Either
the management Is economlxtng too much' on,
policing or the "harness bulls" furnished are
afraid of the coming election and "dassent
sass" the crowd back. To get around both,
objections, put In some hose pipes at ad
vantageous places and I will gamble thai
Just a show of the nozzle In the hands of
two men will make the unruly part of the
crowd gentle as Spring lambs. The hose wilt
also be useful in mellowing the hot stuff Ih
some of the players, which comes to the
surface ever and anon. Let's have the xnsTA
behind the hose out on the field and we will
have a. lovely Summer modest and peace
ful nothing but hot air that don't hurt any
Another horrible tragedy In our midst,
causing much excitement and bitter feeling,
goes down a long line of crime in this coun
try rsultlng from excessive use of liquor.
The liquor habit Is universally recognised
by physicians as a disease. It can be cured
by Orrlne.
This meritorious cure is the result Of over
ten years' scientific research by a "Washing

cians who pronounced It wonderful. W
have made arrangements with the labora
tories of tha Orrlne Company, Inc.. Wash

who are desirous of being freed from this
horrible disease caused by the excessive um
of whiskey, beer or other alcoholic stimu
lants. Orrlne No. 1 (In powder form) can ba
given secretly In tea. coffee or food without
the patient's knowledge. Orrine No. 2 (In
pill form) is for those who desire to be- fre
from the craving for alcoholic stimulants.
