Alan Divorced for Consort Whom
Woman Killed to Keep His Prom,

to Be In Idaho.
The last chapter in the tragic case of
Mrs. Delia Marsh was closed yesterday
morning-, when she and J. E. Marsh,
her former husband, left Portland to
be remarried In Vancouver. "Wash., to

In Rockland. Idaho.
Mrs. Marsh divorced Marsh to marry
Bernard C. Ldnstrom, whom she shot

his agreement to marry her. Sunday
Tternoon a jury, after deliberating 20
hours, acquitted Mrs. Marsh of the
charge of second-degree murder.

Mahon, of 706 Everett street, who had
been a mother to her for many years.
Mrs. Marsh left yesterday morning.
She was almost hysterical after her
release from the strain of the trial
Mr. Marsh was silent. Word of the in
tended marriage came from Mrs. Mc
Mahon and from Mrs. Marsh's attor
"She stayed with me last night," said
Mrs. McMahon yesterday. "This morn

Is a quiet man and said nothing. She
was nervous, but told me they intended
to be married in Vancouver and go to
"Mrs. Marsh's nervous condition
seemed even worse today than during
the tr'al. The relief from the tremen

hysterical at times.
"Not one man in a. thousand not
one in ten thousand would do what
J. E. Marsh is going to do."

LARGER FIELD ADVISED
MORE AMERICAN ENGINEERS IN
FOREIGN CITIES URGED.
Oregon Society Is Advised, In Talk by
W 1). B. Dodson, to Seek Federal -Aid
for Trade Increase,
Business missionaries, more effective
than any other that may be sent abroad
by American manufacturing and export
ing interests, was the class in which
Trade Commissioner W, D. B. Dodson,
of the Chamber of Commerce, yester
day placed engineers. He spoke to the
Oregon Society of Engineers at their
first luncheon of the- season in the
Benson crystal dining-room.
"Our Government is busy sending
special agents, commercial attaches,
consuls and other students of commer
cial problems," said the speaker. "Our
business men are sending commercial
"The commercial traveler' may find
in the Orient that the loan agreement
whereby a work is undertaken provides
for the engineers and materials to be
secured from the nation making the
loan. It is certain that the foreign
engineer will specify materials from his
nation where he can. Only where we
have men in the confidential positions
occupied by engineers and have a hand
in shaping the great loan agreements
will we get full opportunity in this
trade. We get no benefit whatever
from the tourist's travel, for he
preaches nothing American, buys noth
ing American while away from home,
and leaves no impression save that of
spending American money prodigally."
The. speaker urged the Oregon
Society to have the National ' Society
of Engineers inaugurate a campaign
with the Federal Government and the
large manufacturing and exporting in
terests to place in -each great .commer
cial center a leading American engi
neer, whose duty it should Be to seek
opportunity for placing young Amer
ican engineers seeking positions.
Such a work he pointed out, if pros
ecuted vigorously in the Orient and
South America, would soon result in
considerable numbers of American en
gineers finding employment there.
Within a very few years this work
would bear fruit in rapidly-increased
orders for American exports. The as
sociation of these engineers with for
eign work would also serve to attract
more American capital, because of the
Intimate knowledge of contructlon and
investment conditions that would fol
low. SHIP BILL MAY REST
HOUSE LEADERS TELL, WILSON
PASSAGE NOW UNLIKELY.
Members' Want to Get Home for t'am
palgn.,but President Is
WASHINGTON, Sept. 28. There was
little doubt in Congressional circles to
night that the bill for the Government
purchase of merchant ships would go
over to the Winter session without
action. President Wilson, in confer
ence with House leaders, today de
clared he still thought it advisable to
pass the measure immediately and
would urge that It be taken up.
He was told, however, by both advo
cates and opponents of the project that
there was a powerful sentiment against
beginning consideration of the bill at
Democratic Leader Underwood and
Representative Alexander, of Missouri,
chairman of the merchant marine com
mittee, both of whom favor the
measure, advised the President that a
large number of the House members,
restive over the prolonged session and
anxious to get into their home dis
tricts, were strongly in favor of post
poning action until the next session.
The question was still open when the
conferences ended, but everywhere, ex
cept at the White House, postponement
was accepted as certain.
Mr. Underwood told the President
that there was much opposition to the
shipping bill, much of it being based
on a desire of members to get home
for the campaign. Others oppose it be
cause they believe the emergency de
manding it had passed. Representa
tives Page, of North Carolina, and
Sherley, of Kentucky, who are leading
the opposition, also conferred with the
President, endeavoring to convince him
that it would be inadvisable to press
the measure. Some of the opponents
of the measure insist that at least 70
Democrats are opposed to the bill and
that it would fail if put upon its
Adjournment, or a plan to let the
House recess with consent of the Sen
ate, is being discussed, but all depends
on the Senate. v

ESTIMATE IS LARGE
English Hop Crop Figures Are
NOW SAID TO BE 600,000
Break in London Market Carries
Down Prices on Pacific Coast.
Sales Made in Oregon at
13 1-2 Cents.
The English hop crop is turning out to be
larger than was estimated. Every cable
received In the past few days makes the
quantity greater. Friday's cables estimated
a yield or 600,000 cwt., a cable received
Saturday put It at S50.000 cwL, and a cable
that came In yesterday, sent by one of the
largest London rirrns, said the crop would
be 600.00 cwt. Eitner the English merchants
were badly tooled by the size of tbe crop
before It was picked.' for they estimated It
then at 350.000 to 40 J, 00 cwt., or they are
trying by means of these big figures to get
prices down. The market - in London has
gone oft badly, yesterday's cable quota
tions being 50 to 90 shillings per cwt.,
equal to 10.71 to 19.29 cents per pound.
This break In London prices is not only a
severe blow to the English hop growers,
but It is also carrying down hop prices on
the Pacific Coast. The best price reported
in the local market yesterday was 13 Mi
cents. The market stood at that figure just
before the war. After hostilities began prices
started climbing until they touched 18-19
cents and a fraction sver. ' Now they are
back again where they started.' - These low
prices, if they are maintained, will give tbe
snorts an opportunity to cover their sales
at a profit. Thousands of bales of Oregon
hops were sold short for October delivery at
14 to cents. Two Individual sales of 1000
bales each are known to have been made
within this range of prices. An. active cover
ing movement in the near future can there
fore be looked for.
In the meantime the New York market
continues steady at prices altogether out of
line with those prevailing on the Pacific
Coast. New York state hops were quoted In
.-iew rork City yesterday at 4 2 00 cents.
New crop Oregons were quoted In the same
market at 19fci!l cents.
Among the sales reported in this state
yesterday were the Simon lot of 235 bales at
Salem to Bishop at 13'4 cents; the Kunz
crop or 4u Dales at Woodburn to Seavey at
13A cents; the Ireland lot of 48 bales at
Corvallis to Seavey at 11 cents, and a 60
bale Salem lot to Catlln & Linn at 12 cents.
The latter firm is reported to have bought
500 bales all told at 13 to 13 H cents.

Improved Demand Causes Firmer Prices.
Meat Trade Htesdy.
Not much poultry was on hand yesterday,
and as there was an Improvement In the
inquiry, tbe market was firmer than at the
close of last week. The outlook Is for a
better market during the first half of the
week. Prospects are also better in the
dressed meat line. -
There was no change in the egg situation.
Ranch receipts continue light.
Butter prices are holding their own, al
though there is not much snap to the mar
ket. Cheese was also unchanged.
COUNTRY WHEAT BUYING NOT HEAVY
Farmers Are Asking Extreme Prices Local
Wheat trading In the country was limited,
not only because of the extreme prices asked
by farmers, but also owing to the congested
condition-, of tbe docks here and at the Sound
Local buyers on the Exchange bid lower
for club and red wheat, offering 94 cents tor
the former and 888 cents for the latter,
but for forty-fold, bids were advanced half
a cent to 98 cents. Bluestem was un
changed at $1.0214 bid.
Weakness was in evidence in the oats and
barley mirttew. For spot oats, buyers offered
$25.50 and for November oats. S26.D0. For
barley, $20 was bid. Mill feed was un
changed. BroorahaH'r foreign crop cable says of
conditions in Argentina:
"In the southern regions the outlook for
wheat Is favorable, but otherwise there are
many complaints. The acreage planted Is
much under last year, and the seed was of
poor quality, from last year's crop, and at
the seed time the weather was very bad for
a long period.- The Argentine government
crop report of July 28 estimates the area
sown with wheat for the 1914-15 crop as
about 15.800,000 acres, a falling off of nearly
1,000,000 acres as compared with last year.'-
Crop conditions In other countries are re
ported by Broomhall as follows:
United Kingdom V eather la wet and cold.
Native offers are firm and sparingly of
fered. Millers are absorbing freely of all
native offers and also foreign arrivals, and
pressure of wheat on the quays la not now
pronounced. India Further good rains have fallen, but
there is a very permanent damage resulting
from dryness. Crop prospects are fair.
Australia Partial rains have fallen, but
general heavy rain Is needed. Crop prom
ises very moderate yield.
Italy A fair Increase In acreage is ex
pected. Europe Much rain and cold weather has
-greatly Interfered with seeding and soil
preparation, and very little effort has been
made along this line.

According to unconfirmed reports, Rus

into the European war might involve Italy

speculators made haste to cover, fearing an

proved defiant. Some export buytr.g. to

EXCHANGE RATES UP
Violent Advance Due to De
mand for London Bills.
MONEY- MARKET IS EASIER
Trarfio Returns Indicate Business In
Western States Is Holding
Steady Expansion of Trad
ing In London.
NEW YORK, Kept. 28. By reason of Its
important bearing; on the International
money market, todey's -violent rise In for
eign exchange on London overshadowed all
other financial 'developments. Cables rose
to 15.02 and demand sold at (5.01, each rep
resenting- a grain of 3 cents per pound ster
ling over Saturday and restoring rates to
the highest quotations for these remittances
since tbe latter Dart of Auriut.
' The advance was occasioned largely by an
increased demand tor London bills by per
sons having large obligations to discharge
aorosa early in uctoDer, when many 90-day
dims will expire.
It was the general expectation that thes
maturities would be met by new grain and
cotton bills, but the supply of the latter
nus oeen especially small, because of the
emDargo on exports or that staple.
Moreover, the $100,000,000 gold pool was
counted on to relieve the exchange situa
tion, but delay in the consummation of that
project has added to the general strength
of the market.
Apart from the flurry In foreign ex
change, which reacted slightly later, most
of tho day's news was of a constructive
character. Business In the Western states
holds steady, as Indicated by traffic returns.
A significant development In the Middle
West is the easier -tone of the money
It Is noteworthy that money eased here,
some four month or over-year loans being
placed at 7 per cent. . .
An expansion of trading was reported
from London, while Paris and Rome, ad
vices indicated a prolongation of the mora
torium at those centers.
