Discouraged by the low price of
hops, the growers of the Dallas district
will meet in this city on Saturday,
December 14, at 1 p. m., to discuss
existing conditions. It is probable
that an organization of the growers
will be effected at that time, and a
large attendance is desired. S. H
Petie, of Bridgeport, has been the
moving spirit in bringing about this
organization, and the following call
Issued to the growers will fully explain
its object :
"Brother Hop Growers : Why can 't
we get the cost of pToduction out of
our hops? The buyers say there are
too many hops produced, but I have
not found any one yet that can give
the exact figures of production. If we
are producing too many hops, we want
to know it, and if not, we want to
know it. How can we find out? By
organizing. Why can't we establish
a hopgrowers association and find out
the exact production of the Pacific
coast, and if we have too many, take
some steps to remedy the situation?
It can be done very easily by each hop-
growing precinct calling a meeting
of the growers and finding the pro
auction or his precinct. Let every
precinct elect a representative and call
a meeting of the representatives as a
whole at Portland. Salem or some
other place for the purpose of a thor
ough organization."

B. C. Wood, a former proprietor of
the Dallas Hotel, was unexpectedly
assaulted and severely beaten by
Andrew Trent while going from Dal
las to Portland with his wife Monday
afternoon. Mr. Trent, it seems, had
cherished revengeful thoughts against
Mr. Wood, because the latter had
ejected him from the hotel dining room
several weeks ago for creating an un
necessary disturbance.
When Mr. Wood started for Port
land, Monday morn ing, Trent boarded
the same train. Word changed his
mind about going, and when he train
reached the water tank, got off and
returned to town to transact some busi
ness. Trent stopped at Lafayette and
waited for the afternoon train. When
it arrived he boarded it, and stepping
up behind Mr. Wood, who was sitting
beside his wife, dealt him a heavy
blow on the head with a beer bottle.
Stuntlbd by the force of the blow,
Wood was unable to defend himself
and was struck again on the jaw.
Before Trent could strike again, Con
ductor Crocker sprang upon him acd
after a short struggle disarmed him.
Arriving at Dayton, Trent was put off
the train.
Although severely cut and bruised,
Mr. Wood was not dangerously in
jured. It is probable that he will a?k
for a warrant for the arrest of his
assailant. Trent has been a resident
of Dallas several years and until
recently was employed as janitor at
the courthouse.
