TVascp county, having: in his custody
Frank M. Gardner, who is charged with
'being a polygaraist. It appears of record
in Marion county that in 18S5 Gardner
married Alice Church, of the vicinity of
Salem. One child was born to them.
Several years ago Gardner left his wife
and took employment as brakeman with
the Southern Pacific on the Portland
Corvallis line. October 6, 1S96, he mar
ried Mrs. Emma Phillips Fooird, of Hills
boro. formerly of Cornelius, and to whom
he represented that he had procured a
divorce from his first wife. The first
wife recently became ill and went to a
hospital In Portland, where she met a
Hillsboro man who had a wife under
the doctor's oare at the same place.
Making inquiries, she found that Gardner
had again married, and she at once noti
fied Deputy District Attorney Bagley to
have the arrest made. Gardner is now In
the county jail xtwaiting an examination.

Astoria has not succeeded in becoming

A PITIFUL CASE.
Demented Woman Wandering Aiin
lesuly About Umatilla County.
Pendleton East Oregonlan.
W. H. Catherman, who lives about 12
miles from Umatilla, says that one day
last week, while he was doing some work
about his farm, he happened to notice a
woman coming toward him along- the
railroad track, and acting strangely. He
accosted her with the time of day, ana
she acknowledged the salutation. She
then came over to where he was working
and asked if he could not let her have an
old quilt or something to sleep on for the
night. He noticed that her shoes were
worn so badly that they would hardly stay
on her feet, and that she wore very little
more than a very thin wrapper, With
the exception of a light shawl over her
head, this was her only covering. Not
caring to question her then, he Invited her
to his house, and while supper was in
progress he tried to draw her into con
versation regarding herself.
The attempt was a failure, however, and
the only information he could gain was
that she had come from Pendleton that
day; that she did not have a cent ot
money, no friends, and that she was a
decent woman. All the questioning he
and his wife could do elicited nothing fur
ther, and they finally gave it up as a bad
job. When invited to partake of their
supper with them, she refused, saying she
preferred to sleep. She was shown a
bed, and in the morning, when she arose,
she refused to partake of any breakfast,
with the remark that she must reach Uma
tilla that day, which was some 12 miles
Both Mr. Catherman and his wife were
of the opinion that the woman was insane
and had escaped from some asylum, or had
wandered away from home. Since leaving
his place he has heard nothing further
concerning the woman. That she Is de
mented, there can be no question, and
steps should be taken to ascertain who she
Is and where she Is from.
A . FRUITGR O WERS' CONVENTION.
To ?.Ieet at State Agricultural Col
lege Last of January.
CORVALLIS, Jan. 13. Elaborate ar
rangements are being made for the con
vention of fruitgrowers to be held at the
college January 31 and February 1 and 2.
A similar convention of a most success
ful character was held at the college at
about the Fame time last year. It was
attended by leading orchardists from all
parts of Oregon, and by many from
Southern Washington. The deliberations
were so Interesting and beneficial that
the convention passed a resolution re
questing the college authorities to call
a similar meeting of fruitgrowers this
year. The spirit of the resolution has
been followed by the college people, and
a committee, with Dr. Withycombe at
its head, Is now at work on the pro
gramme. A great many leading orchard
ists have already consented to present
papers on a great variety of subjects,
pertaining to fruit culture. Among others
is Dr. E. Emery Smith, of Stanford uni
versity, whese reputation is well known
to all up-to-date orchardists. Arrange
ments are to be made for the usual re
duced rates over the ti-ansportation lines
to those who attend the convention. The
indications now point to even a more

Follotved Decree o the Court No
Division of Partnership Pledge.
CORVALLIS, Jan. 13. Of more than
local Interest Is a decision handed down
by Judge Hamilton, of the second dis
trict, yesterday. The case was J. N.

tle over $1000, and the amount was paid to
Mackey by the sheriff. Brandeberry

who want to represent Oregon at the Pan

In Buffalo, N. Y., in 1901. All the appli

MRS. TREMBATH GETS NOTHING.
Court Finds She Was Not Lawful
"Wife of the Insane Patient.
OREGON CITY, Jan. 13. County Judge
Ryan has rendered a decision In the mat
ter of the claim of Mattie Trembath, o'.
Portland, against the estate of John R.
Trembath, an Insane person. The allow
ance of a claim of $50 per month was
disallowed for the reason that It was
shown the claimant was not the legal wife
of Trembath. as the decree of divorce
from a former husband had not been en
tered on the records in Multnomah county.
That part of the petition asking to recover
$S0O now in the hands of the guardian,
and alleged to have been money held in
trust by her husband, was dismissed for
want of jurisdiction. The court held that
the estate of an Insane person or minor
was in trust only during such disability;
that the matter of the allowance of the
claim of $S00 rests with the guardian,
and that the only recourse for the claim
ant in this case is a suit in the circuit
court. The court's interpretation of the
matter is that the statute applying to the
settlement of the estates of deceased per
sons does not cover this case.

A HOP POOL. FOR 1900
WAS ASSURED AT MEETING IN
Work With the 1890 Pool Receives
Etrery Encourngement-Is Stead
ily Gaining:. Friends and Hops.
WOODBURN, Or., Jan. 13. A pool of
the 1SH0 Oregon hops Is assured oy the
State Hopgrowers Association. At the
first annual meeting, held here today, the
proposals met with universal favor among
tne members. What was looked forwaid
to as a possible difiiculty aeveioped Into
unanimous support, and prominent grow
ers gave the assurance that co-operation
was not confined to members of the as
sociation, although it Is said to comprise
a majority of the large growers. Com
munications were received from a banking
linn largely Interested in hop crops and
the representative of one of the largest
dealers in the United States, expressing
hearty approval of the association's ac
tion and promising support. "Work still
progresses on the 1S99 pool, as officers of
the association state new members are
constantly being added with their unsold
Vice-President. J. W. Mil presided, in
the absence of President M. L. Jones,
who, with A. J. Ray, Is in the East nego
tiating for the sale of the hops now in the
pool. The meeting was mainly for the
purpose of considering the 1BO0 pool. Many
districts were represented by one delegate,
whose authority for action carried much
weight. The utmost harmony prevailed,
contrary to general expectations, and all
seemed practically united on the propo
sition of reaching the market through a
pool. When the question of a 1E00 pool
was brought up, it was adopted without
one dissenter, by a rising vote, and amidst
great enthusiasm. Details were not con
sidered, the board of directors having the
authority to make such changes for the
pool next season as experience with the
present one suggests. The two offices of
the association at Portland and Salem,
under the direction of the executive com
mittee, were reported" to be taking such
action as was necessary to get the crop
now on hand Into the market to best ad
vantage. Reports of new members being
added dally were also made, with very
promising prospects for united action
throughout the hopgrowlng section of the
A letter from Gilbert Bros., bankers, of
Salem, was read, which had especial In
terest because of the fact that the firm
loans largely to hopgrowers. It was as
"When the association was first talked
of by your president, Mr. Jones, we had
considerable doubts whether it would ma
ture or not, and if it did, whether it
would prove of lasting benefit to the grow
ers. We are happy to state now that our
doubts are a thing of the past, and, from
all we can see, there is going to be a
great benefit tc the growers out of the
movement. We have written the secre
tary of the association that we are willing
that all of our custotners should join the
association and pool their hops with you,
for we are convinced that both parties will
be benefited by that course. We are also
satisfied in our own minds that the price
of hops is considerably higher at this time
than it would have been had it not been
for the association. And we would fur
ther advise all banks to allow their cus
tomers to join the association."
A letter from H. J. Ottenhelmer, repre
senting Lilienthal & Co., one of the
largest firms of the country dealing in
hops, was of much interest as showing a
decided change In sentiment respecting
It was given out that the association
would undertake to furnish supplies, such
as hop cloth, sulphur and other materials
required In cultivation or harvesting. This
is to avoid another such corner on any
material as was enjoyed by dealers last
year on hop cloth, which had to be pur
chased at 17 cents. Instead of the usual
price of 9 cents. After the meeting the di
rectors held a business session in which
the only material action was levying a
CO per cent assessment, payable in CO days.

WOODBURN, Or., Jan. 13. The expect

Gates failed to materialize tonight. No
charges were made during the session of
the council, which was a surprisingly
quiet and orderly meeting. There had
been much talk about considerations that
influenced certain councilmen in their at
titude toward the electric lighting of the
city, and charges and counter charges
were freely made and witnesses brought
forth to substantiate some of them, but
when the time for the promised hearing
arrived the matter was not even men
tioned. A contract for two years for lighting
the city was- let to A. B. Kurtz, manager
of the Electric L.ight Company, at the
rate of ?G SO per light for 10 arc lights
of 2000 candle power, which Is a lower
rate than that heretofore proposed by Mr.
The discussion on the tax levy resulted
in the council calling for the opinion of
the taxpayers present, all of whom fa
vored a low rate or none at all. Speeches
were made by S. E. Hardcastle, sr:; P.
A. Cochran and others. The council final
ly decided unanimously on a levy of 2
mills for bridge purposes only. This is
the lowest tax ever assessed by this city.
The report of the city treasurer. F. W.
Settlemeir. shows cash on hand $Z9 S3,
and no Indebtedness of any character
against the city.
Gates and Dose, when approached bv
your correspondent, have no statement to
make In renly to Kurtz's charges of at
tempted bribery except that they deny
