list them as paid workmen.
Despite the fact that some 600 offi

set for the sale as yet.
Bids are to be received as formerly

Damaged hops, if the rain continues,

ports coming today from Oregon and
nearby .Washington communities.
So far the rain has done little dam
age to hops. It has been hoppickers
who have suffered because of crowded
camps and pnly "camping out" facili
ties for ""housekeeping." The rain has
been' general in hopgrowlng districts,
and though It has delayed picking, the

Woodland, Wash., Sept. 4. Rain that
commenced yesterday afternoon contin

no prospect of an Immediate clearing

one foot from the very low level that
it had reached, and Is still rising. There
will be some damage to hay that is
down, but late crops and pasturage will
be greatly benefited. The rising river
will make good early fishing. The rains
will also help to put out any small
fires that may have gained foothold In
the timber of the community. There
have been no large fires.

is feared that grain In some distant
