THE HOP CKOP.
Interviews With Growers Indicate a
Third or a Crop iu Lane.
DalljrGuatd, BvptcmberO.
Duriug the past forty eight hours a
Uuard reporter has talked with many
of the leading hop growers of Laue
cunty. They are unanimous iu the
oplniou that a very small crop of hops
will be the result rf the harvest iu the
county. Hardly any or mem preuict
over a third of a crop. Aud in this
computatio.i it must be remembered
that It Is made on the basis that l lie
greater portion of those uuharvested
will yet be saved.
Mould Is appearing In nearly eveiy
yarJ aud spreading rapidly, and the
present showery weather is wnen it
flourishes best.
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.

i ue river steamer l-.ugene, mat was
built for Unfile on the upper NVillam
et.e, her builders not supinteing she
would ever encounter dangers more
erious that sunken snugs aud shallow
river btrs, is on her way to Alaska
loaded with Klondike gold seekers.
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."

FATAL ALBANY ACCIDENT.
The Victim Formerly Lived at Cot
tage Urove.
John Duffey has been runulng a
little garden patch on the Willamette
river, says the Albany Democrat, sluce
lSUl, llvinir iu a Utile cottage or but all
alone, doing bis work and coming to
the city w heu he bad things to sell,
but generally returning home at night,
when ho did, well Intoxicated, run
ning bis w heelbarrow before hliu In a
Jagged course. 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.
Dally (Juard.Beptcmber 7.
Judge Flskand Barney Paine, by
hitching together, are able to make
one good man. iuis morsiug me
Chinese pheasant bunting fever struck
lu on them, and nothing would do but
they must go together. In fact It was
almost a necessity that they should
uot be separated.
The Judgo has a very sore hand
while Barney Is a filleted with a soie
leg; so It will readily be seen that by
splicing they make one good whole
sound man. To mako the combina
tion harmonious they persuaded tbe
three legged pointer dog that may oc
casionally be seen on our streets to ao
company them to do the pointing.
If ever men started out to huut under
difficulties they are the ones. But we
stand sponsor for the statement If
ever Barney or tbe Judge gets a pheas
aut In range bis wife will have a bird
to put In the frylug pan.

The men were burled under tlie wheat

says, "lime that mars us, mains and
soars us, leaves no track or trench

the river at the present time, says the
MoMlunvllle Reporter, would come to
the conclusion (hat Father Time Is
making as much of an impression on
tho river as he Is on the humau race.
The river Is changing aud shiftiug
continually; laud that was on this side
live years ago now Is In the middle of
the river, aud luud that was In Yamhill
county ten years ago is now lu Marlou

u Marion county Is now In Yamhill.
It Is not known lu tlie fall In what
clianuel tho river will be In the spring.
I u some places the river runs lu two
channels, and ut this lime ol the yer
It Is only by continuous hard work
that the boats can be kept running.

Pally Uiisrd, September 7.
Work was commenced this morning
by the contrnetoia, V McFarland and ,
Chas Johnson, on the job of moving
the Laue county coutt house from its
present site on the public square to tbe
lot fronting on Seventh street, north
aud a little east of tbe building. Por
tions of the foundation have been torn
out, the bell removed aud tbe belfry
torn down. The roof, where tbe belfry
waa removed, will tie shingled over.
The court bouse Is being moved by
It Campbell. He has entered Into
an agreement with the o mimlsalonera
court of Laue county to move tbe
building aud vault to the n w location
without damage, or Interruption
to the usual everyday couuty busi
ness. The vault will be changed
from the present location on the east
to tne north end of the clerk's office.
The county will occupy the building
as usual for the years 1807 and lb08,
or until the new court bouse, wblcb
will be built on the site of the old
one, la finished, when me prop
erty falls to Mr Campbell o be used
for any ( urpose he may elect. It la
expected the moving will require
about two weeks time.
A slde'walk to better accommodate
the public will probably be built on
the north and east sides of the street
that fucs the court house In those
directions.
