Ity the SiNinLsh-Amerlcan War Veterans.

Navy Union. The term "union" Is applied
as showing a Joining of the different
branches of the service, and by no means
in a sense wh'ch labor organizations have
given the- word.
Vancouver, Wash., has a garrison of 329
memb'rs at this time. Since receiving his
sppolnement as special commissioner. Mr.
Kitzslmmon has secured 1 names of
Army and Navy veterans, and expects
to secure a garrison of at least 100 In the
course of a few weks. Eventually It is
hoped to establish a d.-partnient in Ore

Arthur Fell, M. P., Writes Letter to
Times, Urging; High Duty on
In a recent Issue the London Tlmoa
prints a letter from Arthur Fell, a
member of Parliament, who makes a
suggestion for relieving the languish
ing hop industry of England that will
very much Interest Oregon hopgrowers
and dealers. The English growers have
been demanding a 40s Import duty on
foreign hops, but Parliament ad
journed without seriously considering
their application. What has most roused
the English hop farmers has been tho
heavy shipment of hops from America,
the Pacific Coast especially. England
Is the natural market for the American
surplus and the English brewers wel
come pie low priced Importations, but
the growers of England cannot comv
pete with those of Oregon, and unless
they get a protective tariff they will
have to go out of business. In his letter
to the Times Mr. Fell said in reference
I to the recent heavy shipments of Ore
"It appears to be a most flagrant
case of dumping on this market the
surplus of the American crop and Its
sale at a price at which our growers
cannot compete. It also seems pretty
clear these shipments are being hurried
forward to anticipate any possible
action that may be taken here as a re
sult of the inquiry now being held.
"I consider this a case In which it
would be legitimate to use every pos
sible weapon in our power to stop it.
I have suggested that, as numerous
pests. Including the Colorado beetle.
j the gooseberry mildew, the codlln moth.
the American river weed and others
have been introduced into this country
in foreign hops and such produce, the
cargoes of hops might be embargoed
and thoroughly examined and treated
microscopically to see that nothing
deleterious was imported with them.
this would nave delayed them, prob
ably, some months, and before . that
time expired the proposed 40s a hun
dred weight duty might have been put
on. or they might have been declared
to be deleterious, and this blow to our
Kentish farmers have been averted.
"I hope that the Board of Trade, the
local government board and the board
of agriculture will between them find
some power under which they can. by
order, prohibit the Importation of hops
from America as they do the Importa
tion of hay or fodder from a country

Officer- Who Killed Henry Shafer
Has Secured Counsel and Will
Fight Case Stubbornly.
Nathan H. Suitter, the policeman who
was Indicted for second degree murder
after shooting and killing Henry
Shafer, who was resisting arrest for
a trivial offense early last March, se
cured his release from the County Jail
on ball early yesterday afternoon. The
amount was J 30 DO, and the sureties
were: Arthur G. Herald, Homer G. Her
ald, W. G. Huston and E. G. McCoy.
Suitter has been in jail nearly two
months, efforts of his friends to- se
cure ball having failed. The four
men named finally consented. to stand
good for the amount, however, and the
bond was made out yesterday noon and
acknowledged before Circuit Judge
Gantenbeln. . ; ' '" ; ; ,'.
.Suitter left the .County Jail accom
panied by a party of friends and his
bondsmen. He will oontlnue to enjoy
the privileges of liberty pending the
outcome, of his trial, which will begin
May 11. However, he will not be as
signed to duty on account of being
under-Indictment on a felony, charge.
Sultter's friends and members of the
police department have stood behind
him In his trouble. He killed Shafer
in the performance of duty. Shafer
was known as a bully and a brute
and had been publicly whipped for
wlfe-beattng. He was rushing Suitter
when the officer killed him. Members
of the Longshoremen's Union and a
large number ot German people were
Incensed by Shafer's killing. A big
demonstration was made by these ele
ments on the occasion of tne victim's
funeral and pressure was brought to
bear to bring about the officer's prose
cution. District Attorney Manning
held that the killing was, not justifi
able and returned an Information of
second degree murder.
Suitter has engaged the services of
Attorneys Logan and Malarkey. To
pay these attorneys a fund of $1000
was raised by the police department,
each officer of the department giving
Hberaliy. An additional 1500 will have
to be raised in event the case Is ap
pealed to the Suprema Court for a
Even if Suitter la released by the
jury which tries him. it Is hardly likely
that he will ever walk his beat again.
