THE HOP APHIS.
The Pest Makes Its Appearance in Ore
gon and Washington.
San Francisco, Jan. 2". A well
known hop firm, in their annual circular
issued today eaye :
The prediction as to the 1890 crop
which we made in January last proved
only too true. Heavy rains and result
ing floods in Sacramento and other
counties of California drowned out the
roots in many hopyards. and the result
shows a falling otf in these counties of
over 4000 bales from the previous crop.
At that time we also expressed a fear
that the Pacific coast hop vines might
suffer during the 1890 season from dis
eases prevalent in other countries, and
we have now to record the appearance in
quite large quantities throughout. Ore
gon and Washington of the hop aphis.
This pest found growers altogether un
prepared, and although the total acre
age for the 1890 crop was almost
11,000, as we predicted, the crop in
these sections was greatly dimin
ished through the aphis, some
yards being completely ruined, and in
other such portions of vines as showed
mould were not picked. If it had- not
been for this "fact, Oregon would have
shown a crop of 30,000 bales. We be
lieve for 1891 the acreage will aarain
show a 5 per cent, increase and that
growers must expect the reappearance
of the aphis, and they will be prepared to
properly resist its attacks as can best be
done. The total stock remaining on the
Pacific coast, January 1, 1891, was 9,834
bales. This is 3,000 bales less than the
Pacific coast stock on January 1 , 1890.
Nothing can be stated in the way of es
timates this early regarding the 1891
crop. The high prices ruling during the
present season will encourage some in
crease of acreage, and cultivation will be
carefully proceeded with, but to what
extent the aphis will damage the crop
during August and September next can
not be predicted, nor can the crop be es
timated in advance of its actual picking.
In former seasons the aphis was un
known, and an estimate could be made
with reasonable accuracy ; but the Pa
cific coast will no longer enjoy immunity
from the disease and pest incident to
hop cu'ture that previously .existed.
Walla Walla Board of Trade Issues a

The Walla Walla Board of Trade in
vites all the counties bordering on the

Lieutenant Casey's Slayer Known.
Chicago, Jan. 20. Lieutenant Cham
berlain, who arrived today from Pine
Ridge, says the slayer of Lieutenant
Casey is a graduate of the Carlisle In
dian school, and a son of a prominent
Sioux, "No Water." The murderer was

of the Indian Few Tails by the whites

hanged together. Casey's murderer is
still being shielded.
The Remonetization of Silver.
Berlin, Jan. 26. In the reichstag to
day Herr Mardorff proposed that the
German government open negotiations
with America with reference to the re
monetization of silver. Herr Famberger
and Dr. Koch, president of the reichstag,
opposed it, holding that there was no
ground for interfering with the present
. Brussels, Jan. 26. A special declara
tion to the government at Washington,
formulated by the Congo state author
ities, was signed yesterday. It gives
assurance that American reports will
meet with the most favored of that na
tion's treatment on entering the' Congo
THE HORROR GROWS.
Over a Hundred Dead Bodies Taken out
of the Exploded Mine.
Youngwood, Pa. Jan. 28. One hun
dred and seven bodies have been taken
from the ill-fated mine of Frick & Co. at
the Mammoth mine up to 10 o'clock this
morning. It is estimated that the re
mains of at least seventeen more victims
of yesterday's explosion are still in the
pit. It is thought that all will be out in
a few hours.
Nobody slept at Mammoth last night.
In every home and in every little mining
hamlet there was mourning.
Fifty coffins arrived from Pittsburg
this morning and another half a hun
dred will reach here tonight.
An additional order for twenty-five
more was sent this morning.
The cause of the explosion is not yet
determined. The coroner ia on the
ground and a thorough investigation
will be made.
Roll call of all men is in progress and
by tliis the exact number of missing will
be well known.
The rescuing party is working with
energy and the wreck in the shaft is
being fast cleared up.
Officials of the Frick company said
this morning: "It may never be known
how or why the explosion occurred. An
accumulation of fire damp was probably
the cause, but it was never known to
exist in any quantity before, in fact it
may be said that the Mammoth mine
has been free from damp. There is a
theory that a pocket of natural gas was
reached and that the operation of venti
lating fans now prevents any accumula
tion of it."
There has been found up to 2 o'clock
this afternoon 110 bodies and of this
number, fiftv-three have leen identi
fied. Will try "Sandy" Again.
Portland, Jan. 27. The fourth trial
of "Sandy" Olds for the murder of Emil

Prominent taxpayers in Linn county
are considering the propriety of bringing
an injunction suit against the secretary
of state and state treasurer (in case any
of the wagon road bills should pass and
become a law) to restrain the former
former from issuing and the latter from
paying any warrants for such roads.
This would be the proper thing to do, as
there is scarcely any doubt that the su
preme court would decide such acts un
constitutional. Judge Boise has so de
cided, and we feel sure his decision would
be affirmed. Albany Democrat.
We have not the time to critically
examine the provisions of the Gaston
railroad commissioner bill, but incline
to the opinion that three men, all
things considered, are better than one.
A powerful because rich corporation
could not so easily buy three men as
they could one. Hence we favor three
with authority to do something more
than draw their salarv. Ex.
Apothecaries have some very queer
applications for prescriptions. An old
war veteran limped into a shop one day,
and said to the druggist: "I want some
medicine." What kind of medicine?"
"Oh some sort of vermifuge, I suppose."
"Where does the seat of yoiy difficulty
seem to lje?'' "In my wooden leg, mis
ter. I'ts gittin' all worm eaten !"
The question has been asked, "In
what respect are St. Patrick's Pills bet
ter than any other?" Try them, You
will find that thev produce a pleasanter
cathartic effect, are more certain in
their action, and that they not only
physic but cleanse, the whole system and
regulate the liver and bowels. For sale
