One grower said his crop would fall 15,000 pounds below his estimate, an other 17,000 lb-, another 20,003, while seeral state the amount a I the way rom 10,000 to '5,000.

The Eugene was not built with the view of withstanding the pounding and buffeting of the ocean waves and, although her hull was strengthened before ieavlug Portland, she may never reach the great Yukou river whose waters are supposed to flow over beds of gold. The Eugene is a flat bot tomed boat built for traffic on the up per Willamette and, for a time, a couple of wluters ago, made Irregular trips to Eugene, the town after which she was uamed. The traffio on the upper river was attended with too mauy difficulties and she soou ceased coming here, plying is a freight boat on the lower river aud Columbia as opportunity offered. it well Illustrates the passion gold awakens In the minds of meu that hundreds shou'd take passage la such au unsuitable and dangerous craft for ocean navigation. Her passengers take their lives In their hands. Still provision was made for possible ac cident aud disaster by convoying her by a seaworthy boat. The Exam iner of Friday has .his regarding the Eugene's trip: "Victoria, Sept 2. The river boat Eugene, from Portluud, was today chased up tbe Souud by a British cus toms tugboat for violation of the rules of this port and those of the Cnlon. 'The Eugeue is a boxed-up, flat bottomtd, uoseaworthy st rn-wheeler which Is being towed to Si Michaels by the Bristol. On the way from Port land she put In at Astoria aud again at Port Towusend In a disabled con dition. At scon as repairs were com pleted the Bristol took her In tow aud brought her up as far as the outer wharf at this port. She baa no clear ance papers aud no right to land here. A fine polut has been raised as to whether she really did land. She was in tow of the Bristol, which did make fast to the wharf, though she w as in British waters. Tbe Bristol coaled at Union, just opposite Comox, still hav ing tbe Eugene In tow. At that place, however, the customs authorities claim the stearnwbeeler made fast to the wbarf. At any rate a customs officer was put on board. This afternoon message reached Victoria that the Eu gene had slipped ber mooring, carry ing 08 the customs official with her. The Bristol followed ber out and a lit tle later, so the story goes, a lug was dispatched from Nlaualmo to bring tlie Eugeue back, or at least to take off the ustocus official. It Is not believed that anything can be done In the mat ter of forcing the Eugene to return. At pr ent she Is steaming up tbe island passage and In due time will be over taken and towed along by the Bristol. "Behind this little trouble with the customs officials there Is a story cur rent among local captains that Cap tain Mclutyreof the Bristol, does not relish his task or towing tbe Eugeue. That tbe lattsr vessel Is likely to go to pieces the moment she encounters rough water la (be concensus of opin ion. At every place she has been seen by sailing men tbe verdict has been, She will not reach St Michaels,- ana the fact that she has had to be repalied already adds oorroboratlvs force to the statement. The captain or the Eu gene Is credited with the utterance that If he can only make Biuauo win be content fo remain there for the winter "The Eueene. at the time she reached Union was under a flue of f ICO, Impos ed for the violation of the entrance aud clearance law at Victoria. Collector Milne has Intimated that the first op portunity will be taken advantage of to reciprocate the courtesy shown tbe Danube by United Stales customs oi- fieers at Bkaguay. 1 be Eugene maue it a point to emphasise her nationality when steaming out of Union harbor today by raising tbe stars and stripes, and this little Incident does not ny nv means increase Collector Milne's irood humor. He anuouuceJ onlulit that be will now communicate by tlie overland passage with the Mortbwest mounted police officers at Dawson City, so that the Eugene may be selz ed Immediately upon ber arrival In British Yukon waters. Her penalty is certain to be a serious one, for she has not only now to face the accuse Hon of breaking the customs regula lions, but tbe far more serious charge of escaping from custody. "Tbe captain of the Eugene wired today to FC Davldge A Co., charterers of tbe Bristol, urging them to 'square' her w llli the custo n authorities. The reply was that (ho owners! must tit tend to the case Taking into consid eration the j roinlse of the miners who are her patscugeri that they will teus ber upon her arrival Iu Yukou waters; the prospect of a long detention hy the Ice at tlie Arctlo circle lends and the Interesting reception that await her in Dawson City, the present trip of tho Eugene promises to be an event ful ene."

The Bishop, ac companied by Regent Friendly and Prof Young.will visit the University of Oregon tomorrow morning. Mrs Hargrove, the Bi -hop's wife, Is a lady of rare attainments, and Is as zealous in tho work of the church as Is her distinguished husband. She Is general secretary of tho Woman's Par sonage and Home Mission Society, and Is traveling with the Bishop In the particular Interest of that department of the work especially committed to her care. Her lulluence In the church and in the society Is great, aud withal distinctively for good. M s Hargrove has steadily refused to etipoute the cause of woman suffrage, but to the contrary has always been anti-woman suffrage to the cove. The Bishop and Mrs Hargrove are delighted with Oregon, and also reports well of the M E church, South, on this coast The chuich at large has made great pi ogress In the last gem ration, having In 1800, 440,000 mem. era aud In 1807, 1 ,50000.

He made bis last trip on last Friday night. Sunday morning Ed Sacrey In run ning down to the creek after a chicken found the body of Duffey lying face dow nlu about six Inches of water. Ho undoubtedly on Friday night missed tho path to his hut and walked off the bank about forty feet high. There was a cut lu bis forehead show ing that he had struck something. Ills wheelbarrow was found about half way down tbe bank, havlug caught on the bushes. ' John Duftey came to Albany from Cottage Grove lu about 18H0, and had lived most of tho time near the place of his death. He was seveniy-ilx years of age, bad been married aud had two children and a sister living somewhere; but little Is kuowu of his past. It has been reported that Duffey was worth $20,000 In Minnesota prop erty and that be had money at Inter est In Oregon; but It Is doubtful if this is a fact. Two to Make One.

The court bouse Is being moved by It Campbell.
