Horst, Big California Hop Man,
iSaid to Have Joined Bulls.
IJrobable Reasons Advanced for
Change of Attitude on Part-of
Dealer, Who Is Backed
by Armour Millions.
;Pke local hop trade tvas considerably
aglt&ted yesterday by the report that the
H. Ctmons Horst Company, of San Fran
dse, which has been considered to be
wm of the biggest bear firms on the
Oast, had gone over to the bull side
(the market. The firm Is said to have
lateral ed Eastern brewers that the present
Jolt in the hop market Is only momentary
smd to have advised them to buy
tit air stocks early, as prices will surely
m higher.
The Horst Company Is probably the
most important factor in Che trade today
ami whatever side of the market It may
tnfce lis influence Is surely gqlng to be
fttt. The. company is reputed to be backed
hy the Armour millions and to bave set as
tea mark the complete control of the
hop imhistry of the Pacific Coast- The
company owns large plantations In Cal
itentta. and elsewhere on the Coast and
wttt have a big lot of hops at its dls
ptml this Fall to aid it in working
oat Ks policy.
Various theories were advanced, when
tfce report spread about that Horst
hod turned bull, to account for his change
of heart. The company is said to bo
ho&vfty short on the market, like nearly
overy other dealer, but its own holdings
tMs yoar will probably be sufficient for
k to cover. Advices from England credit
tko company with having made many
torm contracts with brewers there and it
soom. to be the policy of the syndi
cate to go into this line of business ex
toostvoty. If such is the case, the com
fmmy. being a heavy producor, would nat
watly want these contracts written at
as high a figure as possible. Therefore, a
bulge in the market now would" serve
s aa education to the consumers, at a
vary important time, that low prices
need not be expected.
If the Horst-Armour combination is
soaking the absolute control of the Pa
cific Coast hop trade, a very necessary
stop would be the elimination of competi
tion, and It Is needless to say that a
MM market now would put more than a
few dealers out of business and would
go a long way toward clearing the field
for any monopolistic steps to bo taken
.The naturally good position of the
market, which is being strengthened as
short-crop roports continue to come in, is
aJso given as a reason for the latest
move. But whatever may be the cause,
it is cortain that when Horst once starts
to boost the market, nothing can stop
its upward course.
That there is an English demand for
hops now was proved by the receipt of a
wire yostorday by the Oregon represen
tative of one of the largo New York ex
porters, asking what choice 1905s could
be bought for, and also asking for figures
on 184 hops. A cablegram received in
this cityjn the forenoon said the English
crop may fall short of 400.000 hundred
weight. The harvest is over In New
York State and the yield has been esti
mated at 25,000 bales.
Thore is considerable inquiry for hops
in Oregon and Washington and some
of the Wg firms are showing considerable
anxiety to cover tholr orders. Offers are
batag made in the North at 11 and 11
coats, but growers generally refuse them.
The only sale of new Washington hops
roportod so far has been that of the Allen
lot of U bales. They were bought by
Hornmn Klaber & Co., of Tacoma, and
the 2rlce was said to be 11 cents. The
Taooma News, which draws Ita hop in
spiration from the bear dealers there, says
the goods will grade "choice," but the
some paper prints a special from Puyallup
as folio ws:
"The first 1605 hops sold this year was
the Allen crop of about 55 bales, which
w-oro sold to representatives of Herman
Xlabor & Co. yesterday. The Allen crop
Is not yet nil picked and none of it Is in
bales yet. and as the hops are green, they
wiU grade low. Many of them also are
from now plants. The price paid is not
Knin Frightens Hop-Plckers.
ORBGON CITY. Or.. Sept. 13. (Special.)
3m .the possibility of a shortage in
pkskors lies the groatest danger to the
auoQaesrul harvesting of this year's hop
crop. Scores of hopplckers returned to
their homes by the north-bound boats and
trams yesterday, and today parties of dls
sMtofiod packers are being picked up at
eoch station or boat landing. A report
emme from a small yard near Hubbard
that E0 per cent of the pickers had aban
doned the place yesterday and returned
to their homes because of .the unsettled
Picking had scarcely commenced gener
ally in this county when operations were
Buspeadod on account of Monday night's
ml. But the yield so far as reported is
fairly satisfactory and of an excellent
ojaity. Josl & Schorruble, who own a
smalt yard near this city, report a fine
crop of baby hops.

oa and attorney-at-law all in one. He
may be the new type of National poli
tician of the future, when the United
State gets down to cases and retains a
general counsel with the rank and pre
rogatives of President. This may be in
19S or it may be later. Folk is young
you very young, not yet 36 in fact, and
oan afford to wait, but Just now he is
not the accepted style of National lead
er. One doesn't feel like throwing his
bat Into the air after he 5ias met and
talked with the man from Missouri.
He Inspires respect, yes. Confidence,
yes. Admiration, yes, but no particular
OAthusiasm. The average voter feels
no Uosiro to carry a torch or blow a
megaphone for him. I Imagine that if
the Governor heard a mob in the street
chanting- "What's the matter with
Folkr and the usual et cetera, he would
feel Urea'dfully bored and would close
the windows and draw the shades.
Mr. Folk will not discuss the possi
bility of his nomination for President.
"Tm not paying any attention to that.
Tm doing the work day by day that
comes to me to do, and giving no thought
to the morrow," is his final answer to all
attempts to draw him out. The Denver
papers are iSfl of alleged Interviews with
him while he was there, all touching the
Presidency, but they are declared to be
fakes. He will not even discuss National
questions In the abstract, and discourages
The quickening pulse by repeating in that
uhherolc, even way of his that the busi
ness of the State of Missouri Is now his
sole concern.
v He won't permit any enthtwiwaa, nnlew
one can become elated at the dull spec
tacle of a big, strong man bonestly
doing great big duties as unemotionally
as he would argue a petition In bank
ruptcy. My advice to the Governor would
be "a little more hot air, Mr. Folk, a lit
tle more hot air." Always providing, of
course, he wants to run for President on
the lemocratIc ticket.
JDoes he have the hankering?
His schoolteacher down in Tennessee
must have told him 25 years ago that he
might be President some time. He be
lieved It then. Does he believe It now?
The Governor just now Is giving a con
sistent imitation of the Sphinx. Is he
going to try to be President next time or
ever? I think he Is, and there are others.
What is the Governor of Missouri going
to do about It? "Joe" Folk knows the
answer, but he won't riddle It to us.
Missouri Society's Picnic
Owing to the late rains and the damp
condition of the grounds, the Missouri
Society has arranged to have their basket
picnic at the Administration restaurant,
instead of Centennial Park, as formerly
planned. A committee from the Missouri
Society has made full arranagements to
occupy the top floor of this restaurant,
and hot coffee will be furnished to all
whd" bring their baskets with them, with
out charge.
It is hoped that the Mlssourians will
bring their baskets and friends and enjoy
an old-fashioned basket dinner. During
the afternoon Governor Folk and other
prominent speakers will deliver addresses
at the Auditorium building. After the
programme is completed a reception will
be tendered t6 Governor Folk at the Mis
souri building, where every one Is Invited
to meet and shake hands with him. All
those bringing baskets can leave them at
the restaurant, which is situated imme
diately in the rear of the Administration
building, near the main entrance.

Collides With English Ship Baralong
and Immediately Sinks, Drown
ing: 14S Wounded Japa
nese Soldiers.
A tale of disaster, terrible loss of life,
famine and typhoons Is brought to Port
land by the Oriental liner Arabia of the
Portland & Asiatic Steamship Company,
which arrived here at 10 o'clock last
night. The captain of the Arabia re
ports that a Japanese transport, loaded
with wounded soldiers, collided with the
English steamer Baralong: in the Sea- of
Japan and sank, drowning- 13 helpless
victims, many of whom were confined to
their cots. Boats from the Baralong
were lowered, but succeeded In saving
only a few of the men on board. The
Baralong, with her bows smashed In, put
into Kobe. The Arabia's captain con
tinuing, said that Japan is threatened
with a rice famine, caused by too much
rain in the islands. Grave fears of star
vation are said to be felt by the Jap
anese. The American full-rigged ship A.
G. Hopes lost Ita mast In a typhoon In
Formosa Channel. No lives were lost
and the ship was towed to Kobe.
An unusually large number of typhoons
has created havoc with ships In the China
and Japanese Seas, many of them having
been compelled to put Into harbors In
distress. As the result of the great
storms It Is said that the Hopes will bo
abandoned, repairs being too expensive
to refit the ship.
At the time the Arabia was leaving
Japan many transports full of troops
were leaving every day despite the
rumors of peace. At that time the
Japanese people were convinced that
their government would never make
peace If Russia did not give in to all
their terms. Several steamers were then
waiting in Shanghai and Hong Kong to
take Russian prisoners back.
The Arabia-brings a very valuable car

Attorney-General Says They Should
Be Based on Xet Tonnage.
ASTORIA, Or., Sept. 13. (Speclal.)-In
reply to a communication from the Ore
gon State Board of Pilot Commissioners.
Attorney-General Crawford has rendered
an opinion that the "net tonnage" of a
vessel and not her "gross tonnage" must
be taken as the basis In fixing the charges
for pilotage and If this opinion is sus
tained It will result in a. revision in the
prices charged many vessels enterng the
Columbia River.
At the meeting of the Pilot Commission
held August 8. letter was received from
Attorney Fererra. of Portland, stating
that the commander of the Italian cruiser
Umbrla, which visited the Columbia River
some weeks ago. had filed a claim through
the Italian Consular agent at Portland
for an alleged overcharge In pilotage
claimed to have been made by- Bar Pilot
Howes and River Pilot Patterson. The
cruiser's displacement is 22S1 tons and her
net tonnage Is 610 tons. The charge for
pilotage was based on the displacement
and the commander of the cruiser assert
ed that it should have been based on the
net tonnage. The commission answered
the letter by stating that all American
war vessels which have entered the Co
lumbia have been charged pilotage In the
same manner as was done with the Um
brla, but It sent a communication to Attorney-General
Crawford, asking for an
opinion as to which tonnage should be
taken as the basis In figuring pilotage
dues on that class of vessels. At yester
day's meeting of the commission the
the- answer of the Attorney-General
was submitted. It holds that un
der the law the "net tonnage" of a ves
sel must be used and that this rule also
applies to warships.
The Attorney-General's opinion Is fol
lowed by a number of- citations from
United States cases In which the same
point was considered.

All the filler in Tom Keene cigars is AMERICAN Yuelta tobacco considered by experts identical with the

None Used In Killing Dogs, Says
3Ianager of Igorrotcs. J
PORTLAND. Sept. 13. (To the Editor.)
In replr to the letter appearing in jour
issue of this morning, accusing the Igorrotes
of cruelty in slaughtering dogs for their
feasts and other uncalled-for and misleading
accusations. ' over the signature of the cor
responding secretary of the Oregon Humane
Society, we request the privilege of saying;
First Dog is a tribal dish with Igorrotes;
and a dog feast Is an integral part of certain
ceremonies; many virtues are ascribed by
these interesting people to Its flesh.
Second The Igorrote eats practically all
animals, but eats chicken ceremonially only.
Third The Igorrotes are not savages. They
are barbarians in culture, have fixed habita
tions, established tribal government of
simplest democratic form; are agriculturists,
having the only true Irrigation In the Phil
ippine Islands, and work very hard tor their
living. Their Industry has excited the ad
miration of all American visitors to their
country. They are also weavers, manufac
ture pottery, work metals and are illustrat
ing here every day their rude skill In car
pentry, hat and basket-making and other
native Industries.
Fourth The dog Is to the Igorrote what
the turkey is to the American, but as their
special feast occasions occur much oftener
than similar events with Americans, they
eat dog oftener than we do the National
bird. 2io more cruelty la practiced by the
Igorrote In killing a dog than by an Amer
ican housewife In killing a fowl, or an
American farmer In butchering a. lamb, pig
or beef. Though he practices constantly his
ancient custom of head-hunting, the Igorrote
is not otherwise naturally cruet
Fifth The actual killing and dressing of
a dog need never be witnessed by visitors de
siring to avoid It. All the other customs,
singing, dancing, spear practice, sham bat
tles, the sports of the boys and the "live
industries" are constantly being shown.
