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

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,

reports not as big a yield as expected.

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

The Quinn yard at Aucpja finished

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.
Shortage of Labor at the Big Hop
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.

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.
"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.

J. J. Kadderly, a business man of Port
land, In a communication to the Board of
Fire Commissioners, which was read be
fore that body at a meeting at the City

Fire Department "with incompetency. J.

plaint in writing.
Chief Campbell refuted every statement
made by Kadderly in his communication
to the board, and demanded that an in
vestigation be hold. "If the department,
as charged by Kadderly, is in a demoralized-
condition, a. ohange should be

Among the routine roattors passed on

The water-tower at Sixteenth and Wash

engines. In his monthly fire report. Chief
ampbcll said that 71 alarms of fire had
been responded to in August and that a
total of 2100 tons of coal had been used
by the flreboat and engines. Recommen

fire apparatus be distributed Xo placos

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 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
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
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
Mr. Hughes remarked: "I do not under
stand what advantage trust companies
aro to lnsurancecompanIes."
Asked to describe the Mutual Alliance

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"'
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

cost of 31,910.010.

morning was the partial wrecking of a
printing office which was xwjtlng the

and some fighting resulted. The police
were withdrawn, and kept in the back

Many citizens of standing have joined

Is In favor of making such a demonstra

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
General Horace Porter. "Wayne Mac
Veagh, Dr. Lyman Abbott and Pres
ident Arthur T. Hadley, of Tale, were
among the speakers.

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
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.
