FORGER CAUGHT IN WASHINGTON
An Old Man Deeded His Land to the
Government and then Repented"
of His Act
Washington, Feb. 28. James Elder,
an eccentricold man of Whatcom, Wash.,
prior to March, 1891, made agift by deed
to the United States government of five
great tracts of land, the present value of
which is now estimated at 2900,000. El
der had three relatives (for whom he
cared nothing. He deeded the land to
the government with the request that it
be given to deserving immigrants from
the overcrowded East. No sooner had
Elder deeded the lands than the three
'distant relatives called on him. . They
would take measures to have him declar
ed insano unless he " would reeover the
property. Elder made a request for his
deeds, but did not receive them. Then
his relatives concocted a scheme to steal
the papers from the land office in Wash
ington and substitute forged documents
in their stead. When this was done
Elder could put in a plea that the deeds
by which his land was conveyed to . the
government were forgeries. William
Jameson, of Port Townsend, Wash., was
thexnan apsigned to make the substitu
tion of the forged for the real deeds.
Jameson came to Washington ; with
strong letters ot introduction, and was
given the run of the land office. As he
was leaving at night he said to Clerk
Weld : "By the way, was any one here
inquiring about old man Elder's case? I
heard a good deal of it out West." The
clerk replied ."No," and went , to the
shelf to take down the tin box containing
the records. As soon as Jameson saw
where the' tin box was kept, he pleasant
ly said: "Oh, don't pull them down;
its late and I'm too tired to look at them
tonight. In fact, I don't think they will
help me in my caee." Next day Jame
son visited the land office and it is said
abstracted the five Elder deeds from- the
box. He went immediatly to New York
went to a lithographing shop and had
the five original dceds copied, even to
the indorsements. With the plates he
went to a printer and caused deeds ex
actly like the originals to be made. By
a queer coincidence Clerk Weld . in the
land office had an occasion the very next
day to look into the tin box which
had held the original deeds. The deeds
were goneT Jameson was afterward ar
rested by eecret service men. His' trial
will take place in the United States dis
trict court in a few days. Jameson was
admitted to bail in $7,500 and allowod to
return to Port Townsend. The object
of this was to enable the secret service
department to get evidence against the
conspirators. In this however they fail
ed except, In the case of Elder, who,
Chief Drumniond says, will tnrn state's
evidepce. Elder was arrested in What
com a fortnight ago and taken to Wash
ington with Jomeson. They are now
out on bail. -
Seward for Detecting Smuggling.
San Fbancisco, Feb. 28. The col
lector of the port has received two checks
from .the treasury department at Wash
ington, one for $1,000, and the other for
$900 with instructions that they should
be paid over to the two men who gave
information which led to the seizure of
500 canB of unstamped opium on the
steamer Komulus, at Oakland wharf,
last September, and ' 400 tins at the
Southern Pacific railroad depot here last
November. Many other claims await
recognition by the treasury department,
and the govern it ent has decided to set
tle all valid ones in the same manner,

HOW TO TREAT HOPS.
Bints Upon Their Cultivation by Mr. It
Faibview, Feb. 28, 1894.
Editor Chronicle: -.' .
Dear Sib Seeing an article in a re
cent issue of your paper purporting to
be a practical course - to pursue in the
planting and cultivating of a hop yard,
and as I have had some experience in
the growing of hops in the state ' ot
New York, where they are extensively
and successfully grown, would say, in
the first place select a soil that Would be
suitable for growing a fair crop of timo
thy, though it is not altogether neces
sary that it should be quite so wet, as
the hop is a plant-that requires a great
deal of cultivation, thereby creating a
great deal of moisture. A northwest
slope is the best, and the next choice is
a fiat or level. Having such soil and
location, you need not hesitate in. plant
ing hops and having a good crop, if
properly attended to. ,If new land is to
be need," it would be better to have it
plowed in the fall Or early in the
spring, so as to give the soil a chance to
pulverize and evaporate some rot . the
wild nature. It should be plowed
thoroughly and deep, well harrowed and
then rooted. Mr. Carpenter says plant
your hops seven feet each way. I would
say eight feet each way, for hops require
a good share of sunlight and fresh air.
As a marker for getting your yard square
and rows straight, Mr. Carpenter ad
vises the use of a wire or string. I have
a better device. It is a square frame
made from four pieces of 1x2, with a
one-inch hole . in each corner, firmly
screwed together, with two pieces of the
same material screwed on top, about
sixteen inches apart, so as to permit a
man to walk between. It takes , two
men to operate this, the same as the
wire or. string, but it has many advan
tages over the former. Just 'start your
yard from a straight side ; make four
pieces to fit in the boles of your frame
closely, so that you can raise your frame
and your -pins will remain; have the
pins twelve inches long and a pin for
each hill ; one man to carry the frame
and the other to insert the pins, taking
two rows at once. You want to count on
twelve hundred roots to the acre. It is
always best to put two roots in a hill.
In planting withdraw the pins and
plant "the roots in the hole. The roots
should not be less than five inches long
and cut from the runners of good thrifty
hills. Secure one male for every sixty,
which will place them after the first row
in every sixth row and every tenth hill.
The male bills need a permanent stake,
so that you can at all times tell where he
is. Your first hill in first row ought to
be a male, and bo on on your return on
the sixth row. , ;''...', . ' ' j
Mr.' Carpenter, thinks it is not worth
while to pole the first year. I would
say pole your hops by all means, so that
you can thoroughly cultivate them, and
you will have a fine crop the first year ;
then if the market is fair your labor is
not in vain. . You can cultivate them
once a week from the time they are one
foot high until they are in bloom, which
will be from the 1st to the 20th of July.
When the vines are about thirty inches
high if they are not inclined to climb
the pole they should be tied io the poles
loosely so as not to bruiee the vines, and
continue the tying' about three times in
fourteen feet. Poles to be used should
not be less than fourteen' feet and from
three to four inches at the but-end, and
should be set as soon as the young Vines
make their appearance, and if one pole
only is used it should be set as near
plumb as possible ; . but if two poles are
used, they ought to be spread a trifle at
the top. " In setting all poles be sure and
eet them six : or eight inches from the
hill, in line with the rows. ;
There is no question as regards the
growing of hops in a large portion of
Wasco county and especially; on:' the
high bench land "and foot hills. ' I have
on my place a hoot one and a half acres
which have been planted six years, but
have not attended to them more than to
cultivate until last year, when I poled
them, and I have never seen a finer lot
of hops. They would easily have aver
aged one and a half tons per acre ; and
at ten cents per ' pound $300 per acre.
Of course you must not count this net
cash ; but the expense is not so alarm
ing as some make it appear... In .my
