Junction City, to examine into th cause or
the death of C S Gourley. The following
fact were elicited:
Joseph Barton tworn, testified! I started
hunting about 6 o'clock and saw Mr Gourley
sitting on his shop porch, with hit head in
clined to one tide and hit fact very pale.
I hallooed at hiut but got no reply, whun I

but got no sniffer. Eugene Winderman aud

Eugene Winderman testified: I went to
Mr Gourley't shop this evening about 5:30
with tome jewelry to mend. He had what
I tuppoted to be a bottle of alcohol in one
hand and a bottle of tome white (tuff iu the
other, which he laid was poison. . He took a
piece of the white stuff nut of the bottlo
and put it in the glatt and U.ld in to go out
for it wss poison. After awhile Mr Barton
hallooed to me to come back, which 1 did
and found Ooorley dead in a chair ou the

Dr Sliarulei tostilted; Tl.ere is no evi
dence to show, in my opinion, that he died
from poison or from any external violence,
but from some natural euuso.
The followiug was the verdict rendered by
the Coroner's jury;
We. the jury impaneled to ituiuire into
the cause of the death of C S Gourley, whose
body now lies before us, find troin the evi

1884. He joined the Christian church and
was baptized by Brother li-dwrts almut two
years ago. He had nlwny lived a very
piout life, having never attended a home

and brothers and si iters. Wo lui.-s him at

The Wheat Outlook.
Whith the present good crops in Oregon
our farmers are confronted with a dull
market and low price for grain. At Liver
pool during the month of July wheat sold
for the exceeding low price of 3fij 9d for 580
lbs. The excess of bushels in Oregon, and
eveu California cannot affect the market but
little either way. The market is now de
pressed from vtrinus causes. It can go no
lower. It is sure to be belter. Observation
and research wilt show that the wheat
market hat not remained at a low ebb for
to long a time at two yeart ic tnocessiou.
Farmer, who r able to hold their cropt
will do well to store them for better prices;
the rite it tor to come. There are many
cantet conspiring at this time to depress the
grain trade, the scarcity of money and the
igh rate of freight will force down the
price. Speculators will of course take ad
vantage of farmers necessities who are un
able to bold their grain for better prices.
The consumers are more numerous than for
mer year taking the world over, while the
acreage and yield is bat n average. Vindi
cator. New Firm.
Dr N J Taylor desire to inform his pat
ron and th publio generally that he has
associated with him Dr J C Eberly, Ute of
St Joseph, Mo, in the practice of dentistry.
Dr Eberly ha had fourteen years of experi

in the Philadelphia Dental College, All
work warranted to give satisfaction. Office

The Hop Culture and Harvest.
Io. Guard. Daring a few week put I
have been examining and insuring hop boat
ia Lane aud Linn counties. Th acreage io
Lane it ettimtted at from 800 to 1000. I
am told that there were bat 300 eore last
year. Ther it much InUrett and iuquiry
among the grower at to th exact (tag of
ripeness, tSe conditions ot drying, the pre
cise dryness, the best time and condition for
baling, etc The greatest diversity of opio
ion aud plan i observed in the very little or
great amount of air let or forced into th
furuac room to hasten th heat into aud
through th hop. Many houses are Strang
ly delicieut iu this element of buoyancy of
or air-draft. While all would agree about
the normal condition nrphilosophy of gener-
tiug heat in a ttove and of lending it rapid'
ly up the pipe, nme think that th furnace
room mut be ahut np lik a ttove oven
with draft and damper closed, to that the
dead eddy of heat in the furnace room may
linger here only to bake the fireman and th
walls below; but th mre successful dryers
say give ns au ample supply at th base, so
a to make nt a rapid breexy flow ot heat
through, aud vapor front the hept.
In every neighborhood we find a few
''weak listen," ot both gender, whining for
higher pricei to pickers. Thii silly spirit of
greed and discontent should b disposed of
at ouce. When hops ar high, -the rafter
should have the profit of hit lucky season
otherwise how cau he be safe and hopeful in
keepiug the business from year to year whsn
hops ar low! Fifty cents per box is th
standard when hop are low as well as when
thev are hiah. This is a fair and remuner
ative price to all who have the energy and
skill to merit good wages. The hup culture
is already au industry ol larse importance in
our county and State, and must soon grow
into one of wonderful extent aud profit. In
quality and yield per acre, the Pacific Coast
excels all other sections in hup production.
With all the aggregation of experience anil
skill that aids our Eastern States and
EitroD. their uroduction testify to I he loss of
primitive adaptation, and place them far
behind us in the exulwrant resource of hop
culUrs. We hop that ISM will Witness
some brief outline of orgsnixatioii among the
hop grower; that they will eitahlish a uni
form price for pickers; advertise aud oien
his register fur a wanted number of hands,
etc. Then we wish to see all who can pick
hop prompt and definite and cheerful in
their engagements, and faithful and obedi
ent to their employer. Now it seem to
me thet all this inuH be done in order to
timely preveut the iieueary introduction nf
Chinese labor on in ex landed and growing
scale. Hut if the people will he prompt and
faithful, then every hop grower would rather
pay out hit inonty to ueighbort aud children
than to Chinese hands.
