'RAH FOR THE 4TH
Dallas Sets Apart Three Days
to Give Vent to Pent
Orations, Reading of Declaration
of Independence, Basket Din
ner, Moiic, Parades, Etc
Fourth of July festivities will
opH) up in Dallas Saturday morn-
rig with the pioneers' reunion. A
hand concert and parade will be
given in the forenoon. The annu
al address will b delivered by
Hon. Win, Galloway, circuit judge-
elect. The occtthionaL addre-fs will
be delivered by J C. Ilayter, may
or of Dallas, fn the evening there
will he a camp fire reunion of the
G. A. U. and Indian war veterans.
A patriotic sermon, sacred con
cert and Lasket dinner, will be the
order of the day Sunday.
The celebration proper on Mon
day will include an address by
Hon. Claude Gatch of Salem, read
ing of the Declaration of Indepen
dence by Harry Belt ot Sheridan,
and there will be all kinds of street
sports and contests, for which
prizes will be awarded. Special
mntors from Independence, Mon
mouth and Airlie have been ar
Machine Shop Purchased, t
II. M. Edear of Salem has pur
chased the bicycle repair shop of
II. C. Miller on C street and taken
possession. Mr. Ldjjar comes with
the intention of expanding the
business and ia putting in larger
machinery and more tools. It is
his purpose to do all kinds of ma
chine work from the repairing of a
bicycle nut to a threshing machine.
He is an experienced mechanic
having run the Salem ironworks
for the past two years.
Mr. Edgar has been unable to
rent a residence in independence
for love or money and with his
family will occupy the back of his
machine shop for the present. to
get this it was necessary to force
Mr. Miller out and the latter is
rmtrinir un a tent and will Jive
under canvas this summer.
Man v people, young and old, filed
into the tent of the Grecian palm
ist during the two days of the big
i . il
picnic; some went eany in xne
morninir, others a few hours after
the sun had set and a few at high
noon. This womau was the seventh
auehter of the seventh son and
had the wonderful power of read-
ne one's fortune in the stars. A
close observer could have seen by
the sad expressions and downcast
looks on leaving the tent, that the
path of each individual was not
literally strewn with flowers and
m the other hand there were a few
whose foot steps would be troubled
ery little by thorns. Time will
tell. ' ' .
THE HOP SITUATION.
The estimate on the output of
ihA Btate has been lowered and
some wagers have been made on
90,000 bales. No one ia now put
ting the estimate as high as 14U,0UU
the wild piediction that found its
way to the Portland papers two
months aeo but hop men generally
are not pessimistic. They generally
estimate the crop, from present
prospects, to be about the same as
E. M. Young thinks the yield
may be less than last year.
George L. Rote We can't have
100,000 bales this year. Pain is
needed now. The next two weeks
is the critical time fur hops. They
will be bloksoming out, and it is
while blooming they need rain.
Dove I have 88 acres in the
bottom and they look very well.
It looks likfc I will get a full yield.
Horst Bros, yard does not promise
as big yield as last year. That
yard produced 1800 bales last year
and it looks now that it will pro
duce about half that amount tbi
year. The yield of the new yard will
be very light. The output of the
state will probably b about the
same as last year.
Kola'NcU, Squire Farrar, Julius
Pincua and L. D. Jacks made a trip
through thote parts look'uig over
the hop prospects this week, They
found that the dry hot weather is
aff-JCting some yards, but they re
port not a great deal "A rain a
week ago would have helped, re
marked Senator Farrar, ''bat there
will be hops whether there is rain
or not." .
Kola Neis has a yard across the
river from Independence. Jay
yard looks well," he said, "and
ya'ds throughout the valley,- espe-
dally bottom land yards, look as
well as they did any time last year.
The hops are free from lice."
J. Morrison, manager for Horst
Bros. Hops need rain so badly
they don't know what ia the matter
with them. If rain comes within
a few days they will be all right."
The silver wedding of Mr. and
Mrs E. T. Henkle wae celebrated at
their home in Independence Mon
day night in the presence of a large
assemblage of mends and neigh
bors. It was in the nature of a
surprise to the host and bostes who
have been happily living ia marital
bondage the past twenty-fiye years.
Dr. E. J Thompson acted as master
of ceremonies, going over again in
his inimitable style the wedding
ceremoayjtothe delecstaiion of those
present. Although an impromptu
affair it was a most delightful eve
ning to- the guests and a high
tribute to Mr. and Mrs Hinkle.

is in favor ot tne experting and it
commissioners "Riddel and Riggs
