THE MOSNIKG OREGONIAy, FRIDjLT, SEPTEMBER 8, 1905. IPS WING DOWN LIGHT Yields 'of Yards First Picked Fall Below the Earlier Estimates. ' RAWEST .NEARLY JGENERAL ltcocnt4JBrlccs Paid, Quality Consld ered, Show That Values Are Being Fully Maintained. Scarcity of Labor. Picking is now almost general la tha hdpyards of Oregon, though some of the largest growers will not begin until Monday morning, while favorable re sults are obtained at some daces, the reports from others are anything but en couraging, bearing out the predictions of many experienced hopmen. made some time ago. that the appearance of the yards was then deceptive. The vine ap peared to be producing fine, but it is turning out to be largely a top crop. In the Independence district, the yield 1b quite good is most places. Foreman Gibson reports a fairly gdod yield from the Ottenhelmer yard. D. B. Taylor will have one-third the yield of last year. At John Burton's yard, the yield is not as heavy as expected. James Griggsby will have half a crop. R. D. Cooper, vfcoee yard is better than the average, reports not as big a yield as expected. FUchard and Wolfo will have a very good rlold. The rick at Salem. The only report from picking around Salem came from the yard of Catlln & LJrfn whose crop is said to be coming Sown about 700 pounds to the acre. These rards looked as if they would pick 1300 to 1500 pounds to the acre. The Quinn yard at Aucpja finished picking "Wednesday and produced 300 boxes, where the same land last year rlelded 900 boxes Julius Wolf, of Sllverton. brought down the following reports from yards already picked around Woodburn: The Crosby yard, which raised 62 bales Si 1904. will have 35 bales this year; Mc Dormlck yard, 100 last year, 65 this year; Tamos Kennedy. 157 last year, 96 this rear; Jack Miller, 13 acres, 00 boxes !ast yoar. 400 this year; John Sing, 9000 pounds last year, 6000 pounds this year; IV. T. Grim, 15 acres, one-third short. The entire "Woodburn district is expected fall one-third to one-half ehort of last ear. The market is unusually quiet and not nuch is expected to be done until har restlng Is ovor. The sale of a lot of 112 bales of 1904's at Salem by Mark Skiff it 12 cents was confirmed yesterday. -Tullus Pincus 'declined to say who he bought for, but the talk in hop circles it Salem was that Paul HOrst got the tot. Mr. Skiff was communicated with tnd stated that the hops were of an in ferior grade, dirty-brownish In color and rome of them sack-dried. Hop men of this city who have seen the goods also Hiy they would not grade as primes. Mr. i Skiff has boon trying to get an offer on those hops since hops left 18 cents and this is the first offer he has had. He also says he has other 1304's left which he would not sell now. as he expects to see thorn worth 25 cents. He thinks this is only a momentary' depression. The lot In question was similar to a 70-bale lot of J90i's that was sold In "Washington three weeks ago at 10 cents. A Note worthy fact In connection with the Skiff sale is that this was half of a crop, the other half having been sold last Fall by Skiff's pardner at 29 cents. A small lot of 34 bales of fuggles, grown on the Smeed yard at Eugene, was sdld to a Portland dealer yesterday at 11 cents. A few othM" small sales were eald to have been made. PICKERS ARE SCARCE IX POLK Shortage of Labor at the Big Hop Yards. INDEPENDENCE, Or., Sept. 7. (Spe cial.) Instead of 800 hopplckcrs, scarcely 200 arrived on the Krebs special train to day. This gives rise to apprehension of a shortage of hopplckers. In fact, a shortage exists and growers realize it. Others in the district as well as Krebs wore expecting the total number to be Fwolled muoh more than it was "by the special out from Portland today. None of the yards has an over-supply, and a nuniber are from 200 to 50 short, while the Krobg yard, up till today, had About one-third the pickers needed. Conrad Krobe is resourceful in getting help, how ever, and he is relied on to draw more yet from the outside. Picking is now on in the Cooper yards, Eurton. yards, McLaughlin, Doves & Griggsby, on the HIrschberg place, Mit oma, the Japs' yard, Davidson &. Hedge, "Whltaker. Rider, Damon. Mackay fc Co.. Brown, Huntley. Tom Fennell, Fitchard & "Wolfe. Porterfield. Hubbard & Jones, D. B. Taylor, "Walker Bros., Mattitxm, Walter Roys. Hopkins, Robinson Bros., Thomas Pomeroy, Slopor & Patton. By ers. H. C. "Wells. Fred Stump. Hill Bros., Ottenholmer and the big Horst yard. By Monday picking will bo on in the big Krebs yard, Rose's, Pe'rcival's, Grove's, and a number of other smaller yards. Pickers who come now are pretty oure of a Job and picking is clean this year. No sales, either of old or new hops, are being made. Livesley, who has an order for old hops, offered G. "W. Johnson, of Salem, 13 cents, which Mr. Johnson re fused. Mr. Livesley then offered to trade new hops for the old, paying 1 cent a pound difference. This offer was also de clined by Mr. Johnson. 3CEW YORK CROP VERY SHORT "Will Not Be Over 60 to 70 Per Cent of Last Year's. WATERVTLLE, N. Y., Sept. 7. (Spe cial.) The hop crop of New- York state . this year will not be over 70 per cent of last year and on" the whole will probably not exceed 60 per cent. Unfavorable weather has decreased the yield and .hurt the quality. Mould is seen in many of the yards and this, added to the blight that struck nearly all the yards, makes the outlook rather dubious. Only tho best and unaffected hops are being picked, so that the quality will be kept up to the usual standard. Sales so far have been of oarlies. at 20 and 21 cents. Dealers and growers are "both holding off on the late crop. Sale Heportcd at Salem. SALEM. Or., Sept. 7.

KNOWS ABOUT THAT LOAN legislative Committee Can't learn About Mercantile Trust Loan. Mutual Life 3ranv Makes Frank Admissions. NEW YORK, Sept. 7.-The affairs of the Equitable Life Assurance Society and the Mutual Life Insurance Company held the attention today of the Legislative life insurance investigating committee. In ses sion in this city. Nothing particularly new was develoDed in rairard to th Equitable Society, other than the state ment arawn rrom ono or the officers that the society does not know the present whereabouts of Thomas D. Jordan, thi former controller. """It was stated th.it Mr Jordan was wanted as a witness to ex plain the loan of mart a to th Equitable Society by the Mercantile Trust vximpanj. it was also stated that James tu nyae. formerly nrst vice-president of the Equitable, later will be called as a witness before the committee. The lnaulrv into the Mutual Utn insur ance Company -was begun. Tho testimony drawn from an officer of this eomn&nv showed that the Mutual controls many trust companies, among them the Morton Trust Company, the Guarantee Trust company ana tho united States Mortgage & Trust Company. On deposit with these companies tho insurance company keeps hundreds of thousands nf dollars, acmlnvt which it does not draw. It was explained that the nrosDoritv of the trust comna. nles meant the' prosperity of the Insur ance company. The Insurance deposits draw 2 por cent and the trust companies nav as hltrh as 2tf npr cent dividends on the par value of the stock, or 5 per cent on the market value. Cromwell's Idea of Syndicates. Frederick Cromwell, treasurer of the Mutual Life, said the company had bought securities from syndicates; that officers of the company had also "bought securities from syndicates and received individual profits by selling these bonds to the company. He did not see that there was any Impropriety In the officers going Into a syndicate -when the company had gone In first. Mr. Cromwell was still on the stand when the committee adjourned until tomorrow. William Alexander, secretary of the Equitable Life Assurance Society, was the nrst witness cxamlnod. Mr. Alexander, who is a brother of ex-President J. W. Alexander, said the ntutuallzatlon of tho Equitable had been prevented by the suit brought by Francis E. Lord, a stock holder. It was brought out that Mr. Hyde had. bound himself -with Mr. Ryan to return the S2,m,0W paid for the Equitable stock, provided full delivery was not made Sat the expiration of the trust. AVbnt Has Become of Jordan. Mr. Alexander was questioned as to the whereabouts of Thomas D. Jordan, for merly controller of the Equitable. He said he did not know where Mr. Jordan is. because he is one of the men who knows about the unexplained $6SS.0 loan of the Mercantile Trust Company to the Equitable. On tho subject of fonnor prices of Equitable stock. Mr. Alexander said It had sold at 31000 a share 1 years ago. Recently Marcellus Hartley Dodge had told him he had purchased four snares at more than 33000 each. The Hyde stock was sold to Mr. Ryan at approximately $5000 a share. Mutual Life Bond Purchases. Questions regarding the relation of the Mutual Life Insurance Company to the Guarantee Trust Company were asked of Frederick Cromwell, treasuror of the Mutual. He said that every member of the fiscal committee of the Mutual, with the possible exception of Mr. Grannls, was a stockholder In this trust company. Mr. Cromwell quoted a transaction in which the Mutual had purchased several millions of Cuban bonds while the Guar antee Trust Company had bought 11.000,009 worth. Asked why the Mutual did not purchase all the bonds Itself. Mr. Crom well replied that the insurance company did not wish to assume all the responsi bility of possible loss. Mr. Cromwell said in reply to questions that the Mutual, which owned nearly half of the trust company's stock, would have lost through any losses of the Guarantee Trust Com pany. Mr. Hughes remarked: "I do not under stand what advantage trust companies aro to lnsurancecompanIes." Asked to describe the Mutual Alliance Trust Company. $10,000 worth of whose stock was owned by the Mutual, Mr. Cromwell said It was a small company. organized for business in the East Side of New York, and serving to aid the Mutual In buying large stocks of bonds, but that It never paid a dividend. Herbert H. White, secretary of the Con necticut Mutual Life Insurance Company. gave the salaries of the Connecticut Mu tual officers as follows: Prosldent. $12,500; acting vice-president. 312,000; secretary. 37500, and treasurer, 35000. He held that his company only made advances to agents when a new agency was started. William H. Kings icy. secretary-treasur er of the Pennsylvania Mutual Life In surance Company, of Pennsylvania, said that bis society s charter does not per mit voting by proxy. Profits Made by Trust Companies. Frederick Cromwoll. treasurer of ''the Mutual Life, was recalled. He explained that in a syndicate In which the Mutual Life . was concerned the Insurance com pany got all the profit. If any members of the finance committee went into It privately It was through some banking house and not through the Mutual. The Mutual, he said, has 2000 shares In tho Morton Trust Company and keeps a de posit there right along of 3100.000 or J300.O00, against which it does not draw. It has not been drawn against since 1S39. Mr. Cromwell explained these large de posits by pointing out that on all the stock the Mutual held it had a profit of 322.OX.000, and that its trust company stock formed a very large proportion of this. The deposits in the trust company helped largely to support the trust com pany, and they considered they were Jus tified In maintaining these deposits in or der to assist the prosperity of these com panies. He regarded the investments in the trust companies as very profitable. Syndicates for Managers Benefits. "Would It be fair to assume that syndi cate transactions are got up for tho benefit of the managers V tha witness was asked. Without any question." he replied. "Now, what good to you are trust com panies? You are well known as holders of largo money? You must have many, applications for loans." "We don't hear of the loans. We wish to Invest in railroad, companies and other large transactions." The Japanese bondjssue came up for special mention, and Mr. Cromwell said he was in it, as well as the Mutual, and with a profit of one-quarter of a million dollars. He often went Into syndicates, when the Mutual had gone first. "You don't know that alter using your .best Judgment on Investments of the Mu tual Life In syndicate transactions, there Is any Impropriety. In your making money out of the same transactions"' "No." It developed that the Mutual receives 2 per cent Interest on Its deposits In the Morton Trust Company. Twenty Per Cent Dividends. The United States Mortgage & Trust Company was next taken up. This com pany belongs to the Mutual Life, and was obtained at a cost of 31.665,130. The com pany oavs 20 ner cent on the mr v!u of Its stock, and 5 per cent on Its market value. Passing on to the Bank of Call fomla, the witness testified the Mutual held 5000 shares of the nominal -rain of VX0Av which had been purchased at the cost of 31,910.010.

Shortly after midnight another attempt was made against the Kokumin Shlmbun offices, but tho police dispersed the at tackers, killing one of the assailants.

The principal duty of the troops was the protection of the police. The anger of the crowds was chiefly on account of the closing of HIbaya Park and the denial of tho right to meet pub-llcls-'In the .park, which Is under the charge of the municipality. After the park was closed yesterday, the Mayor and Council met Immediately and protest ed to the government, and insisted that the park be reopened. It Is now claimed that all tha turbulence resulted from the Indiscreet closing of the pork. Students and young street rowdies seemed to be the largest participants in the disorder of the night. The firemen succeeded In saving the main structure of the Home Minister's residence. Only the outbuildings were de stroyed. It Is impossible to secure ac curate figures of the casualties. The JIJi estimates them at two dead and at 5(0 wounded in all. Including those se riously and slightly Injured, among whom are 100 policemen. The wounds are mostly slight sword thrusts and bruises made by stones The city Is exceedingly'qniet this morn ing, and It" Is possible that the trouble is over. BURNING POLICE STATIONS 3Iob Rampant and Government Calls Out Imperial Guard. TOKIO. Tuesday, Sept. 5. (Delayed In transmission.) The city continues In an uproar. Detached mobs attacked and de molished and burned 11 nutivinr- mUm -sub-stations.

Street-car traff was suspended In the troublesome districts On account nf lnnhlllr m cars. Wild rumors are sweeping through wic cuy. it is impossible to guage the situation and the extent and seriousness of the crisis. Until today's events the majority of the conservative element seemed, to be' accepting the Portsmouth results. Now the aspect Is changed. STRONG MEN LEAD RIOTERS Populnce Resents Concealment of Terms of Peace. .TOKm Sept. 6.-(DeIayed In Transmis sion.) The only serious disturbance this morning was the partial wrecking of a printing office which was xwjtlng the Kokumin Shlmbun to publish Its edi tions. The crowd attempted to enter the building, but was prevented by Boldlers, and some fighting resulted. The police were withdrawn, and kept in the back ground, on account of popular disfavor. The soldiery and gendarmes are perform ing general duty, the soldiers guarding the foreign legations. Apparently there Is an outbreak of an-tl-iorelgn sentiment, but the government Is anxious to prevent the Injury of mem bers of tho legations and other foreign ers. A few foreigners 'have been caught by the mobs and roughly used. The Nlchl Nlchl says: "How can the government retain Its dignity In the appearance of such rioting? TJie members of the committee appointed at yesterday's meeting have good stand ing, and are not irresponsible agitators. The police exceeded their authority, with a result derogatory to the honor of Tokio. Popular Indignation was Bet on fire, .and the police finally were unablo to keep order. If the present conditions continue, tho contamination may spread and Innocents and their property be dam aged." An Irritating feature of the situation is the continued failure of the government to Inform the public of the exact results at Portsmouth Not a jingle feature of tho negotiations has been communicated officially to the people. The result has been much popular resentment. Tho peo ple argue that they fought and paid for the war, and are entitled to know the results. Arrests since noon yesterday number about 200. The police captured SO assail ants or tho Home IMnlster? residence and detained the prisoners within a com pound until morning, fearing that the populace might attempt a rescue.

Japan Is aflame with the spirit of rebellion. The people are Joarnlng the extent of the concessions made to Russia to obtain peace, and pop ular resentment Is overwhelming. Mobs display their feeling toward the govern ment by attacking the police, and In riot ing last night two persons were killed and at least 500 wounded. Many citizens of standing have joined the rioters, and the sentiment generally Is In favor of making such a demonstra tion that the Mikado will step in and -repudiate the peace conditions.

Mr. "Wlttc spoke first, saying he had insisted upon being accorded the privi lege that he might have the honor to propose a toast "to the health of the Illustrious statesman, Theodore Roose velt." Mr. WItte's last words were drowned with cheers. Colonel Harvey followed Mr. TVltte and proposed a health to the Russian Emper or, which was drunk standing. Baron Rosen spoke next. He gave a personal estimate of the Russian Emper or. "When President Roosevelt whispered the word "peace," It found a hearty echo In the breast of the Emperor. "Peace." he said, -was the passionate desire of Russia, but Russia wanted tho peace that comes of right to the just man armed, and not the peace given to the beaten craven." Ellhu Root. Secretary of State, spoke briefly. He congratulated the envoys on the success of their mission, and person ally on the admirablo good temper they j naa displayed. He said it required more courage to make peace than to make war. "Men who cry most loudly for war," Mr. Root continued, "and who criticize the Inevitable concessions to honorable peace are tho weaklings who never fight. It is the antithesis of these qualities which has made our 'President such a fit ting emissary of peace. Only he who is known to be willing to make war is heard with respect when he Implores peace."

BOYCOTT KILLED IN AM0Y Consnl Anderson Finds Leader Is Philippine Citizen and Forces Him to Disown Movement. Others Follow. AMOT. China, Aug. 6, via San Fran cisco. Sept. 7. (Correspondence of tho Associated Press.) The Chinese gunboat Hsing Hang appeared before the Amer ican Consulate on the waterfront in Amoy today with the American flag at Its mast head and fired a salute of 21 guns as amends for an act of an insulting nature committed In connection with the flagpole of the Consulate about two weeks ago. The whole affair grew out of the antl Amerlcan boycott agitation, which has been In progress In Amoy for the past month or more. There are a large number of merchants In Amoy, who have business connections In Manila, more perhaps, than in any other port ofChlna. Many of the merchants have had difficulty In get ting into the Philippines since the Ameri can occupation and. as a result the feeling against Americans In Amoy is cijr oiLicr. ine ooycoit agitation in tne city took definite form about July 16, when the 3S merchants, composing the Amoy Chamber of Commerce, met and signed an agreement to buy no more American goods until the exclusion law was modified. That afternoon one of these same merchants bought a big stock of American kerosene and another a large stock of flour to tide them over the storm. The boycott movement aroused con siderable excitement, and on the night of July IS some miscreant. Incited by lcr pulled down the halyard of the American flagpole, scattered fllth about the foot and posted and anti-American placard upon the pole. The matter was taken up with the officials by Consul George E. Anderson on the morning of July 19, and has been threshed out between Amoy and the Vice-regal Court at Foo Chow, with some action from Pekln In the meantime. The local officials, while originally wil ling to make amends for the outrage, were afraid to do so publicly lest the agitators should go after them fdr bow ing to the foreigner. A flag saulte was Insisted upon by the Consul, however, and the pressure he was able to bring upon the provincial officials carried tho day and the salute was ordered. In the meantime the Consul found that the leader of the boycott agitation In Amoy was a citizen of the Philippines, in terested in the Philippine trade, the sit uation thereupon showing eltuer that this leader could be held amenable to Philip pine law for his boycott agitation or else would forfeit his rights to engage in the coasting trade as a Philippine citi zen. After a conference with the Consul, this person, who was formerly Chinese Consul at Manila, and bears the Spanish name of Engraclo Palanca, decided that he wanted nothing more to do with the boycott and prorased to urge other mer chants to gvc up the movement. On the mornng of August 2 the merchants held a mectng and deeded to have nothng more to do with the boycott. Consnl Says Boycott Is Dying. "WASHINGTON, Sept 7.
