of related Indian tribes threaten the

been little, if any improved by the in

Miss Clenna Lynch t- Wendell, Idaho,
Monday to perform tho final formalities
in the purchase of a IGO-acro fruit farm
which they have bought with their
pooled earnings. If all goes well they
propose to leave their work here and
go out to Wendell, where they will
form a little fruit raising colony.
The young women call themselves
"The Idaho Guild." They banded to

project in view. They secured 160
acres of government irrigated land,
have now made their last payment, and
Miss Lynch will go through the final
formalitiea necessary to acquire title
to the land.
Among the prospective farmers. In
addition to Miss Lynch, are the Misses
Adelaide Jackson, Marie Miller, Helen

Most of them became enthusiastic
over the idea of investing in irrigated

of sudden assassination.
Five or six leading citizens have re

Troops Are Driven Back With 3,000
Klllod and Wounded.
Madrid, July 30. Official dispatches
received here today admit that the
battle between Moorish tribesmen and
the Spanish forces outside of Molllln
July 27 was a disastrous defeat. The
Moors cut off communication with the
Spanish outposts, and the main force
of the Spaniards was driven back under
the walls of the city, hero fighting con
tinued desperately in the city,
Mellilla is full of wounded.
The extent of the disaster is plainly
apparent from General Marina's dis
patches given out at the war office
today. He says:
"On July 27 the Moors cut the rail
road, severing communication with our
outposts. Our batteries shelled tho
Moors, but tho advance posts were en
dangered and they had to be abandoned.
The situation at Melllla is grave, de
spite the desperate bravery of the
troops, who are now fighting under tho
walls of the city.
"Our losses in the engagement were
General Pintos, a colonel, two lieuten
ant colonels, five captains and many
officers and subalterns and about 1,000
men. Tho wounded number at least
1,500, Including many officers. Tho
hippodrome is full of wounded soldiers.
Two generals were mortally wounded."
British Grower Tells Method of Hop
Salem Davis Jones, owner of a hop
yard of several hundred acres in Wor
cestershire, England, and one of the
largest growers in that country, Is In
tho city, tho guest of Jack Carmlchael,
a prominent Oregon hopman.
Mr. Jones madotho Interesting state
ment that English and continental hops
will not bo ns heavy n crop as last
year, and that from present Indica
tions English hops will command at
least 30 cents in tho market. Last
year them wore 38,000 acres of hops
in England, and this year only 31,000.
Thirty cents is not considered a partlc
ulsrly high prlco in England, for it costs
from 18 to 20 cents per pound to pro
duce the crop.
The mothod of culture is radically
different than from that in use In this
country, and whllo it Is expensive, it is
very thorough and effective. The
trellis system Is used, with a wiro one
foot from tho ground and another near
tho top of tho poles. To each of these
wires hooks nro attached and tho wires
are never taken down, the hops being
cut off and picked. This mothod of
courso prevents cross-cultivation and
necessitates plowing in only one d I rec
ti n. The space under tho wires is
worked by hand with hoes or forks.
Feritllicrs am used extensively, the
utual quantity being about 20 tons to
the acre. During the cultivating sea
son tho ground is gono over about 20
times. Tho spraying system used in
.England Is unique, consisting of a
main pipe four Inches In diameter,
from which laterals as small as an inch
in diameter radiate in every direction
through tho fields. On each acre there
are two taps for tho attachment of
hoso. The spraying material is forced
through the pipe by steam power.
Hops are washed five or six times with
about the same solution as that used in
STUDENT LOAN FUND GROWS.
University Now Has 86,000 Drawing
Interest for Needy Students.
Unlvesrsity of Oregon, Eugene The
past year has shown a remarkable gain
in the amount of the Student Loan
fund at tbe University of Oregon.
From a total of approximately 1800 at
tho beginning of the year it now
amounts in round numbers to $5,000,
and the indications are that this amount
will alio be largely Increased during
tho coming year. Nearly 16 gifts to
the fund have been made, ranging in
amount from 126 to $1,000.
One of the largest of these was made
by the D. P. Thompson estate, of Port
land, and was for $1,000, Another
gift of approximately the same amount
was received, but Its donors have re
quested their names withheld. Senator
It. A. Booth, of Eugene, gave 1600,
and several others added amounts vary
ing in sizo from $160 to $260.
Loans from theso funds are made to
deserving students at a low rate of in
terest, and the plan is to have ten men
guarantee tbo fund against loss. Since
the beginning of the University Loan
fund some six years ago only ono loss
has been sustained.
