ItOTIl PARTIES (LAI THE I.AX1)
The Case PromUM te be a Spirited
Oac anil Kill be ia the Courts
Vaughn v Gulsbwiller la the
to an action at law that will probab
ly cucumber the uocket of the cir
cuit court In Washington county for
many months. A while ago Mr.
Ben). Anderson sold bis residence
iiroperty at the northeast corner of
First and Lincoln streets, just north
of the court bouse block, to Sylvester
Vaughn for $900. Later Vaughn
transferred It, by deed, to Mrs. L. J,
Quishwiller without,, aa he alleges,
consideration. His reason for that
step was that be teared his wife with
whom he had not lived for fifteen
years was trying to get an Interest In
his property. He supposed his wife
had obtained a divorce years ago.
Just how he expected to extinguish
his wife's title by transfer is not
plain. Ou the other baud Mrs.
Uuishwiller asserts that the money
paid to Mr. Anderson was her own
and that she had the deed written iu
her friend Vaughn's name because
sho owed some claims that were
pressing and that she did not want
the title till the demands were paid.
Having paid her debts she took the
title of the properly from Vaughn's
name to her own. The property is
her own, was from the day Mr. An
derson sold it, and she proposes to
hold it. And there you are.
Last Tuesday John Brown, grocer,
got returns for 1 dozen broiler chick
ens which were sold for $4.75.
These ieepers weighed as they came
from the yard 9 pounds, and sold for
a fraction under 40 cents each or al
most 63 cents per pound. On the
consumer's table they will cost al
most or quite $1.00 per pound. But
the big price Is not all profit, for to
begin with the eggs from which they
were hatched were worth 3 cents
each. , There was loss of added eggs
so tlint 4 cents is not too great an
estimate. Cost of heat for incubator
must be reckoned, then there is care
and ft ed while growing. But there
is a margin of profit and a living for
the poultry man who raises chickens
by the thousand. It should be added
that the expense of marketing this
little shipment was fifty cents.
Coupled with the opinion of the
city attorney that the county court
has exclusive jurisdiction of county
roads passing through the city until
such jurisdiction is given to the cor-
oration by the legislature in
charter, is another matter can

part of any county road within
What has been said with refe rence
to the Hillsboro-Glenco railroad is

the matter. That stub of eight

that Joseph Galbreatii is republican

Last week in writing of the se

by Mr. Geiger. This tree has been a
very rapid grower, and now presents
a most attractive appearance. The
correspondent did not mention Its
history but it probably came from

The favorable pass that Secretary
Heed commended so highly, was
surveyed in 1868, by engineers em
ployed by tho Oregon Central. They
reported adversely and the route now
used, up Fourth street Portland, was
taken instead. The abandoned
route was over a 2 per cent grade.
Nothing better is now claimed for It.
The Fourth street grade Is 4 per cent
for a few blocks but 2 per cent for
several miles on both sides of the
hill. And it is that 2 per cent that
makes freighting so expensive from
Beaverton to Portland. In the be
ginning, when Holiday was propos
ing to build the road, he wanted to
go up Fourth street, bat there was
objection. Holiday threatened to go
down the Tualatin, bridge the Wil
lamette at Oswego and establish
anion depot on that side of the river.
The city quickly granted the right
of way through Fourth street and
raised a cash subsidy of $100,000 in
addition. We now 000 that It would
have been better for the commerce of
the West Side if the road had gone
down the Tualatin. It ia where it

where as many cars can be palled
as cin be hitched t), than go over
the Portland mountain on a S per

motives to pull fifteen loaded cars.

With the unrestricted freedom
owners of stock enjoy in allowing
their cattle to roam over the public
highways, Washington county has
gained an unenviable reputation as a
"free range community." One can
not travel any road whether promi
nent or remote, without encounter
ing straggling groups of whole herds
of cattle, without apparent owners,
grazing upon the thorouhfares.
This malpractice has become so pro
miscous and pernicious that many
individuals, they cannot be termed
farmers, ignore to lay In a supply of
fodder for the winter season, but de
pend entirely upon our "free road
gracing" system, the marauding In
stincts of their bovinea, which asserts
itself in many fence breaking forag
ing expeditions upon the growing
crops ana trie gleaning or passing
hay wagons etc., to keep their flocks
during the blustering days of the
rainy season. These roving bands
have become so numerous, that they
now constitute a positive nuisance;
not to speak of a constant menace to
life and property and the quarrels
and law-suits they may provoke.
The owners of these festive "cows"
seem to have transmitted to inem
their own sense of road owneship, by
which thev, the cows, have acquired
absolute title to the highways with
"appurtenances thereto," the latter
phrase signifying the bicycle paths,
their favorite promenade which they
abuse In various ways to the detri
ment of its appearance and useful
Farmers are loud In their protests
and weary of these wandering klne
and their depredations, and are al
most unanimous In their denuncia
tion of these quadruped vultures of
our roadways. We look for relief
and appeal to the authorities to com
mission a Poundmanler at every
cross road if necessary, to permanent
ly dispose of and bring to a termina
tion this "home rule" of cattle aa
found on our highways.

Francla Feller, the Butteville hop
grower who went to London several
months ago with the pool of hop
sent by the Oregon Hop Growers'
Association has returned, aud seems
to be well pleased with the result of
his trip to the British motronolls.
In an interview with a reporter ol
the Kveulng Telegram, that paper
says of his trip: '
"Frank Feller, a prominent hop
grower of Butteville, returned yester
day from London, England, after
disposing of 22,000 bale of hops for
the Oregon pool. He thinks the
trip paid him well, aa the hops weie
sold direct to the consumers, who
were willing to pay good prices for
them. The aalea netted the growers
here 10 to 12 cents a pound.
"Mr. Feller thinks Oregon lioj
growers, as a rale, ate In too much of
a hurry to pick, and this gives the
bops a green, unripe tinge when In
the bale. Hops should not be pick
ed until fully ripe, he said, even
should we have to wait a few days
longer. The British consumer is
willing to pay the top price for the
Pacific hops' as the product of the
Willamette valley ia called, but he
wants them fully ripe; in fact, a lit
tie overripe would bo better than
"He spent six weeks in the British
metropolis, and thinks It is the big'
gest city in the world. The atmos
phere Is grimy with smoke, and if
one washes his hands every fifteen
minutes the water would turn black
from the soot. New buildings put
up within the past twelve months
look old and grimy, and the sooty
atmosphere settle on everything.
London is a busy city, however, and
the people are evidently prosperous,
I saw no signs of extreme overty
anywhere. The Britons, although
gloomy over the protract! war In
South Alrica, are by no means in the
humor to compromise with the
Boers. In the daily papers and in
conversation on the streets, evidence
John Bull's determination are
plainly manifest. The Englishman
when he sets his head, is just as stub
born aa the Dutchman, and that is
pretty stubborn,' Mr. Feller is glad
to get borne to Oregon, and expects
prosperous season for the hop grow
er In 1902."

' The Industry of breeding trotting
horses is assuming large proportions
just now (he market being England,
Germany and France. A fast trot
tor brings blg money In those coun
tries, gums reaching into thousands
for tho gpan. These horses can be
bought only in the United States,
where the class originated. The first
trotter was Hambletonian and' all
the standard bred horses trace back
to that remarkable animal. But
not all of his colts were fast, or trans
mitted speed to their defendants, but
there were speedy animals that seem
to have been the sire of remarkable
trotters. Tho head of one of these
groups was Electioneer 125, that
stands at the head ot a speedy lot of
horses, among them Sunol 2 :08 and
Egotist somewhat slower but the
sire of Egoecn 2.0C and of Lovelace
owned here in Hillsboro by Mr. E,
B. Tonguo. Lovelace himself baa a
fast record of 2 .20 and a trial record
of 2:12 , as a 3-year old. The breed
ing of fust horses la one of. nature's
secrets Jealously guarded, and a fast
colt is quite as likely to appear on
the farm as in thn gilded stables of
the wealthy breeder. There is every
Incentive for farmers who have good
brood marcs to patronize this fine
animal whose 3-year old record la
better than that of Egotist his tire.
