YARDS LIST DEMAND
1500 Hoppickers Wanted and
More to Be Needed Later.
PAY RATE IS UNCHANGED
England Expected to Be In Market
Tor Oregon Product, Since War
Has Cut Ofr Supply From
Usual Sources in Europe.
With the opening of the hoppicking
season a month away, officials of the
Yellow Stack line are looking forward
to handling crowds bound for Willam
ette Valley yards to assist in harvest
ing and they predict that the number
j to go will be larger than for many
' Through the United States Immigra
tion Department a list is being com
piled of persons who will be available
for places in hopyards and Assistant
Inspector Bonham said yesterday that
between 1000 and 1500 can be taken
care of by the yards already listed at
the immigration office, while more
growers undoubtedly will indicate the
number of hands they will require, so
the list can be increased.
"Needless to say we desire principal
ly to obtain the names of families bo
that they may gain all the assistance
possible in these days," said Mr. Bon
ham. "At the same time the names of
individuals will be accepted so that
when the season starts we can supply
each yard the full quota asked. There
are many opportunities remaining and
those who report first will have the
proference for work."
Average yield Expected.
Rates for. picking are to be the same
as those of the past few years, say
hopmen. The crop will be about an
average with some prospect of a in
crease. The yield from, the Willam
ette Valley will be nearly 125,000 bales.
Besides the fact that numbers of Port
land residents will be employed in the
yards, much of the yield will pass
through the city en route East, steamer
lines plying via the Panama Canal
receiving the shipments.
Hopmen look for a decidedly active
demand from England this year and
some hops may move direct from Port
land to the United Kingdom. It is
estimated that there will be about
half a crop in England. In the past
Germany, Austria and Belgium have
been drawn on to make up England's
' requirements, as sufficient hops have
not been raised there, but now, with
Germany and Austria certainly closed
to British dealers and no crop avail
able in Belgium, the Pacific Coast of
the United States promises to be the
principal source of supply.
Stored Crop to Be Moved Soon.
Some old-crop hops have moved lately
across country for shipment from New
York to England, and those on hand for
export are to be cleaned up, as an in
creased rate of 50 cents on 100 pounds
goes into effect on steamship lines
across the Atlantic September 1.
Should the higher tariff remain in effect
after the new hops are ready - to be
moved, it is reasoned that a larger
. percentage of them will be loaded on
Canal steamers here and transshipped
at New York to save as much as pos
sible on the through rate.
Water shipments from Portland for
' the- year ending June - SO were 99,000
pounds for New York and 1500 bales
were exported direct to Liverpool.
ASTORIA SERVICE INCREASED
Ilarkins Line to Have Passenger
Boat on Run Every Day.
Owing to the demand from many re
turning from Seaside, as well as
Astorians, for a steamer service from
Astoria Mondays, the Harkins Trans
portation Company announces that
hereafter there will be a steamer from
Portland daily, making the roundtrip.
The past arrangement has been for
the Georgiana to make the run daily
except Monday, when she lays over
here, but Captain Hosford says that
the service will be maintained every
day during the Summer.
That line also operates the steamer
lurline on the run and of late the
Undine has been impressed to assist
in moving the accumulation of freiglrt

lacumes except days when the steam

GRAIN" FREIGHTS TO GO UP
Second Steamer Fixed at 95 Shill
ings and Rise Is Forecasted.
Some grain exporters express doubt
that additional steamers will be en
gaged for a time at 95s. as owners are
insisting on higher freights. The lat
est engagement was of the British
steamer Rosalie by Kerr, Gifford & Co.
at a5a. She is of 2725 tons net reg
ister, and comes here from Leith, be
ing due in September. The Iritish

sociatlons has been due mainly to their

VISITORS MAY GO ABOARD
Majxr to Preside at Formal Open

County and City Officials.
Captain D. II. Smith says the British
prison-ship Success Is the greatest
drawing card ir the world.
Kvld-ently It Is all that he asserts,
for he eays at San Francisco 822,000
persons went aboard between the time
of her arrival there in the Spring from
tae East coast until she left there Mon
day in tow of the steamer Wasp. The
Success is looked for in the river Sat

Captain Smith is in the city and eays
tne prison-ship will remain- here for
several weeks so that all may have an
opportunity to visit aboard.
Career la Historic.
"The Success is the only snio afloat
built entirely of oak wood and at the
water-line her hull is 30 inches thick,"
Baid Captain Smith yesterday. "She
was turned out in 1790 and plied as an
armed merchantman until 1802, when
she was purchased by the British gov
ernment and until 1851 was used In
transporting prisoners from England
to Australia. On her first voyage she
carried 380 persons and they were the
first whites to reach Australia. After
her transporting days were over she
was used as a floating prison in Aus
tralian waters and in 1861 the system
"At New York the Success drew
84,000 visitors in eig.it days and up
to this time more than 15,000,000 per

who were hunting together, and spe
cial arrangements were made to close
the vessel so they might view the vari

Lectures tilvem on Board.
Captain Smith says he was born in
Indiana, but his father being an Eng-
lnman. he was sent to England to
join the navy and after his period of
service expired the Success was pur
chased. She carries 19 persons for lec
ture purposes and the care of the ship
and he says she is covered in Lloyd's
in the sum of $250,000. which, of course,
is much more than the vessel is worth,
except for show purposes.
Tnough the Success was under way
t Melbourne for five years and was
battered around considerably, much of
her original decks are in place, show
ing the wear from the constant tramp
of her unfortunate passengers, also the

grave." The State Department re
ceived messages from Charge d'Af
falres Davis telling of the assassina
tion of President Gulllaume.
Violation of Legation Not Complication.
This violation of diplomatic immuni
ty which foreign nations enjoy would
be regarded ordinarily as a serious af
front, hut In view of the absence of an
established government arid the jten
eraily turbulent condition, the Inci
dent probably will not complicate the
situation. It had the effort, however,
of sttmulatlnc the Amrrlcan Govern
ment, which Is more deeply Interested
In Haiti than European countries, to
take Immediate steps to restore order.
I'resldent Wilson baa been Riving
serious consideration to the situation
in Haiti for several weeks. I'aul Ful
ler. Jr.. sent to investixate conditions
there, recently returned with a report
snowing; that It was Impossible for him
to negotiate a proposed treaty with
President Uulllaume, because of the
latter's fears that the police would
rise against him If he slfrned the pact.
While the terms of the proposed
treaty never were made public. It Is
known that the United States attempt- .
ed to arrange for the administration of
the customs In a way analogous to the I
American control of customs in the ;
Dominican republic i
Order e lie I Bala ted On.
It was considered probable In diplo
matic quarters tonight that the Ameri
can Government now would Insist on
Its original proposals before with
drawing; its forces, and to compel an
observance of law and order also
would seek to have Incorporated in the
treaty a provision somemhat similar
to the I'latt amendment to the Cuban
treaty, whereby the United states would
have the right to Intervene in event of
Already In the last two months
French marines have been landed In
Haiti. and the American Oovern
ment itself has found It necessary to
send marines ashore to maintain order.
There was no firing; at the marines,
although disorder continued In the
city. It was assumed a guard had
been established at the French lega
tion and at other points to protect
Admiral Caperton's force Is too small
to permit a general patrol of the city.
