THE HOP YIELD.
Misfortunes never come singly.
They always double up, or come in
p:wii8. Therefore, it is no great
iiatonishment that the hop crop in
Drogon should be a disappointment.
First there was a drop in the price
i.dnow art expert buyer, who has
made a tour of the hop-growing
section, says the yield will be at
lsiEt 25 per cent less than last year.
Here we have a double disappoint
ment, for While hop-growing is
more of an incident than an indus
try in .Oregon, still we had relied
on it to help us out in a pinch. It
was estimated that the income from
the hop orop would go a good ways
iu making up the shortage on wheat
end wool, and that with their fruit
sides it would help the farmers to
oven up. But we have to take
what comes, and what can't be
iip'.ped must be' endured. Our peo'
pie are getting , so accustomed to
hard strokes of fortune they will
net worry over little troubles of
this character. AVe will smother
,:r disappointment and go ahead
t 'ying to turn up something else.
The whole country has had such a
long series of reverses that we are
disappointment proof. We can
make up for the loss on the hop
crop by drinking less beer and put
ting leas yeast in our bread. Tele
gram. The United States embrace a
VMt amount of territory, and all
j;inds and conditions of climate
and soil, some of which is bad, some
rood and some of it the beet. In
ihu hitter class, and right at the
hw.d, too, stands the great state of
'-. egon. In- climatic conditions,
fertility of soil, diversity of pro
ducts and matter of locations Ore
gon ie ahead of any other state in
the Union. It is true we have a
long wet winter, hut it is Bcarcely
ever disagreeably cold, and men
work all day . in the rain and never
take cold. The rainfall, in fact, is
an immense blessing. Stock never
f eezes in the winter, the natural
(."izing grounds are rarely ever
' covered with snow, and stock graze
the greater part of the winter! The
punt rainfall absolutely insures an
siiundant harvest for everything
.'rf?t grows in this climate." The
tlieaded cyclone and feared thunder
storm never come. - The pesti that
inflict crops in other states are al
most unknown in Oregon. The
climate is healthful, the soil fertile
end nature' has been extremely
.v;ah with her blessings. And
the best of it. all is that there are
plenty of chances left for a poor
man to carve himself out a home
in the "beat country in the world."
A newspaper man, says an ex
change, will ait up nights to write
something kind about a fellow
citizen to help him along, even
when he may have no personal
.. "friendship for- or interest in him,
and will pay out good money to
vmt his words into print after they
have been written, yet the persons
y.b.n have been benefited seldom
think of making a return, attribu
ting notice to personal merit. Ten
t iiniices to one they will send out
of town for their next job of work,
or will take it to an exclusive job
snop unuer tne impression ot maK
ing a saving, or .they will take it
somewhere to offset a bad debt.
"But the newspaper man keeps
v ..it along looking pleasant and
i-aying good things about every
body,' and spending more time to
uncertain tike particulars of what
Sir. Jones has done than would be
required to write an article on the
. .source of the Nile.
Cownkl Bob Ingersoll is having
u hard time of it since he wrote
that newspaper article justifying
suicide. Every time the New York
papers make mention of a suicide
they speak of it as "another con-
' ( i t to Ingersoll theory." It prob
ably didn't occur to Colonel Inger-
sn'I that he was shouldering a great
!'. :.! of responsibility when he wrote
timt article. It was a suggestion
to many an unfortunate one to take
the suicide route. Backed by such
eminent authority, it became an
easy matter to perpetrate solf-mur-
der. If he has a conscience, it'
must be a source of great, misery to
Colonel Ingersoll when he looks
upon the new-made graves that he
has filled. If a 'man can't say
something to help the world and
make it better, he should keep his
mouth shut. , .. ...
Now that Japan seems to be get
ting the best of China in the Ori
ental war, the English press are
getting very much exercised over
the matter and insist that the
other nations of the ' world should
join together and put a stop to the
conflict, and especially insists that
the United States Bhould take stops
in that direction. . It seems to us
that if England wantB to assist
either it is her privilege to do so.
But so far as this country is con
cerned it has learned to attend
to its own business and taught
England a very good lesson many
years ago along that line. Ex.
The people of Minnesota are
respouding nobly to the call for
relief from the fire sufferers. Pres
ident Hill, of the Great Northern,
set a good example by contributing
$5,000 from his own pocket, and
then gave an additional $5,000 from
the treasury of hi6 company. With
what has been contributed by the
cities of St. Paul, Dnluth and Min
neapolis, this will give an ample
fund to relieve present distress,
but winter is coming on, and these
homeless people will have to be
provided for during the cold
weather, and it's extremely cold in
Minnesota. ' . .
Some of the leading prune grow
ers in Oregon and Washington are
figuring on getting from 6 to
cents for Italian prunes. It has
been reported that some contracts
have been made, but investigation
has failed to verify the reports.
The California unions are Btill
holding at 6 cents for the four sizes
but no sales at those figures are
J. E. Budd, the Democratic nom
inee for governor of California, is
the man who some years ago sur
prised everybody, even his most
ardent friends, by carrying 'his
Congressional district, which was
strongly Republican. He made
one of the most remarkable can
vasses "on record and won when
victory seemed utterly out of reach.
The wise statesmen of the coun
try, after allowing the bold thief
Carnegie to swindle the people out

to subject them 'to such a severe
trial that they will not be fit for

Mistaken for a Bear.
Lust Monday afterneou Sam Heifert
came galloping into town and inquir
ed for Dr. Belknap. As soon as be
held a consultation with the Dr., we
bunted him up and Inquired the cause.
He informed us that at a point In
the Cascade range,' twenty miles west
of Crane prairie and ninety-five miles
from Prinevllle, himself anil three
others, Wllll-m Quinn, William
Thorn and William Pooler were camp
ed bear hunting. On the 20th, having
killed one bear, in the evening two of
of the party, Wm. Thorn and Win,
Quinn, concluded they would take a
round and see if they could not scare
up another on". They soon became
separated, and just as It was getting
dusk Thorn saw what be thought was
a tear and fired at It. Instead of a
bear It turned out to he Quinn. The
bullet struck his right arm, passing
through near the shoulder, fortunately
missing bis body entirely, Beifert
immediately started for medical assis
tance, and the other parties Intend
to bring Quinn this way, and meet
the Dr. at Crane prairie. Prinevllle
