250 bales from Wells and Smith
Toward evening Mr. Kirtpatrick
tunde D. B. Taylor and J. D. Whit
eaker an offer of 30 cents. The
offer - became known on tbe
streets, and the jump of 1J
cents in the bop market created a
little flurry. The offer naturally
bad a retiring effect on other buyers
for they bad no orders from their
different houses warranting that
The offer was taken under ad
visement br Mr. Taylor and also
by J. D. Whiteaker, and after de-
liberation Taylor signed up a con
tract for 300 bales.
To make assurance doubly sure,
Mr. Kirkpatrick' wrote him out a
check for $1,000, Thus was the
hop market opened up at 30 cents
for Oregon the pace being set at
Independence, the hoo center of
the state. .
Mr. Whiteafcer never signed up,
electing to hold his hops..
Mr. Kirkpatrick also bought by

, Baling is pretty well done and
hops are being transferred to the
Southern Paciho warehouse at a
lively rate. A line of teams stand
in front of the warehouse all day,
awaiting turns at unloading.
It U not an uncommon sight to
see ten and twelve teams awmting
their turn at the depot warehouse.!

With Other Exposi
Tne Lewis and Clark Exposition
grounds present certain features
which f robaply no other site had.
With possibly the exception of the
Vienna exposition, which was held
in the "Prater," a beautiful park
in the City of Vienna, no other
exposition site, in my opinion, had
the natural advantage that this
exposition has. A fine wooded bit
of lawn, a broad expanse of clear
navigable water, a fine tract of level
ground on a plateau viewing four
snow-capped mountains and a
mighty river, it is indeed, a land
scape which must appeal not only
to qur people, who are accustomed
to naval landscapes of beauty, but
particularly to the Eastern and to
the inhabitant of the middle states,
who probably never saw a piece of
ground where Nature's beauty is
concentrated in a tract of land oi
approximately 400 acres.
The Exposition site covers ap
proximately ISOacres of land and
about 230 of water. On the main
grounds are located the following
buildines:' Aericultural, Liberal
Arts, Foreign Exhibits, Forestry,
Machinery Halls and Elgctric
Building, Mining Exhibit, Admin
istration. Auditorium and Police
Departments. In addition to
these, buildings on the main
land, there are contemplated build
ing" for the State of California,
Japanese Building, Slate of Wash
ington Building, , State of Idaho
Building and others, while in the
Agricultural Experimental Station
grounds is located a rustic bungalow.
On the extreme west end of the
Exposition Grounds will be located
stalls and review stands for the
stock and dairy exhibits.

to a trial in court and that he will
