be surprised that if in ten days hop
picking will have to be abandoned. He
says the hops are moulding and rotting
badly. The lice are found to be quite
plentiful In many yards, and they
have done a great deal of damage. A
few days ago buyers were offering to
advance four or five cento per pound
on hops for ploking money, hut now
no advances are being made, The
market price is given at six to eight
cents, which will not oover the ex

A DASTARDLY MURDER.
A, Peddler Waylaid, Robbed and Mur-
uerca in iiu dhnu,
The Cold Spring, so well known to
travelers on the road to Sweet Home,
was the scene of adastardly murder on
Thursday, the' 0th. ;
Friday night some campers discov
ered a hat and a pack near the road at
this place, but thinking the owner was
making camp, and. not suspecting foul
play, they took no further, notice of
these things. On the following morn
ing the things were In the same posi
tion. This excited their' suspicions
:iud a search was mode. The bat was
xamlned and also the Dack. which
was found ripped open and partially
robbed. A further search disclosed
the dead body of a man partly con
cealed behind, a log and some bushes,
The facte were reported to the Sweet
Home authorities and the coroner,. ,
The facts thus disclosed showed ttuif
a peddler by tho name of McOial, a
Syrian by birth, had stopped at Sweet
Home Wednesday, and had had two
horses shod, displaying considerable
money and had come from Prineville.
It happened that he had been appar
ently followed by threo men of rough
appearance, on horseback, the entire
route. The dead man had paid the toll
of the cow-boys, and had at this time
also displayed considerable gold. Soon
aflhcr his arrival at Sweet Home,
his companions also arrived,
and remained over night, ' in
quiring the way to Brownsville and
other points, particularly the route
over the hill that joins the main road

It also appears that one of the three
cow-boys enme Into Sweet Home.
little behind the other two aud ap
peared not to know the latter. The
two men started early over 'the hill
road toward Crawfordsville. The third
one went down the river road and soon
returned, complaining he had taken
the wrAng road. He started again, but
by the same route, and soon after, the
peddler started with his packs and two
horses. He would naturally arrive at
the Cold Spring, a 'very dark and
secluded place, by nine o'clock. At
this hour three shots were heard by
parties at Sweet Home and fy a
hunter on the other side of the river.
Au examination of the body showed a
bullet hole through the head and one
through the body, which showed signs
of decomposing. His watch wasgone,
his packs rifled and his money bag
ripped open and the gold was gone. -One
of his horses was found near
Sweet Home and the other wasdlscow
ered coming this way. The latter
animal was bought by a gentleman at
Waterloo, and the party charged- with
selling the animal is now in custody.
He waived examination and was held
to await the action of the grand jury
in the sum of $500 bail. His examina
tion was held before Justice Parrish, of
Sodaville, the state aud the defendant
being represented respeotfully by Mr.
Kelly and Mr. Garland,
,, Several friends of the deceased are in
town, seeking to find the guilty parties.
Tbey claim that the dead peddler had
about $800 in gold. The crime Is a
hideous oue and a thorough search
should be made, ''-;.

A BUROLAR KILLED.
A Trap Qun is Set and It Gets In Its
Friday morning last, the dead body
of a man was found In the store of W
B. Smtth, in Portland. This store has
been robbed before and the proprietor
placed a loaded rifle In position to com
mand the rear door, with a string
attached to the trigger. The burglar
entered by this door, pulled the cord
in opening the door and caught the
heavy ball in his thigh. An artery
was severed and the man bled to death
notwithstanding his frantic efforts to
get out of the store when help could be
found. This man was George More
house, the deoeased husband of Miss
Lilly Hacklcman, the sister of Charlie
Hacklcman, formerly of this place.
Thisyounj man came to Albany a
few years ago and for a while stood
blgh in business and society circles.
He was married to this estimable
young lady, but bis evil habits soon
forced her to get a divorce from him,
The many buglaries that occurred In
Albany of late years are supposed to
have boon planned by him, He
claimed and was believed to be the
son of wealthy parents, but his claims1
were totally unfounded. He was a
man of pleasing address and hod
many friends until his crookedness
was discerned. He rapidly went to
the bad In Portland and finally met
his death In the act of committing a
DROWNED IN THE SANTIAM.
John McKinnon Meets Death in its
S. A. DeVaney, correspondent In the
Albany Democrat, gives the following
account of the drowning of John Mc
Canyon Creek, Sept. 8, 1894. I
Bert Nye and John McKinnon, were
gaing from Chas. Frost's clearing down
the Santiam. home, and when thev
reached the river, John McKinnon
said he would cross the stream at a
point of rock where a heavy volume of
water poured between two large rocks,
and either be slipped and, fell, or was
caught by the current and washed into
deep water and drowned. He had a
severe bruise on the nose, forehead aud
cheek, which would lead one to think
he slipped and fell head first on the
rock. Young Nye hallooed manfully
and brought Paul Howes, W. A. Cal
kins, Oliver McClure and S. A. De
Vaney . to the scene as soon as they
could possibly reach it, the latter three
running nearly one-half mile. The
water was deep and being in the shade
at the time, 220 P. M., prevented the
swimmers from locating the body for
nearly 80 minutes when Paul Howes
and S. A. De Vuuey brought the body
ashore. Everything was done to re
suscitate him that could be so far as we
know. But all without avail. It is a
heavy stroke on the bereaved parents,
neither of whom are In good health.
The entire community extend to them
their heart felt sympathy in this their
sudden and sad bereavement.
John McKinnon was 14 years, 3
months and one day old, and was
beloved by all who knew blm.
To Make Sugar from Beets.
Several of the prominent citizens of
Portland propose to euter into the su
gar beet Industry. To that end, arti
cle's of incorporation have been filed
in the office of the county clerk. The
incorporators are K. G. Korn, E. S.
Larsen, Edward Hughes, John Klos
terman and Ex-Judge Chas. H. Carey,
of the municipal court. Mr. Korn is a
beet-sugar manufacturer of very ex
tended experience, and Has recently
arrived from Germany. The other
incorporators are well-known business
men. The capital stock is $1,000,000,
aud the general office of the corpora
tion will be located in Portland. ThiB
newly-formed corporation proposes to
build one or more beet-sugar factories
lu Oregon during the coml ng year. It
is anuounoed that it has already or
dered from Germany, where all the
best best beet-sugar machinery is now
made, a plant which will cost about
$500,000, aud, as an evidence of good
faith in the matter,' has paid down a
good round sum in cash. The forma
tion of the Oregon Beet-Sugar Com
pany is an outgrowth of the investiga
tions which have been Carried on in
this state by Mr, Korn, who came here
from Germany for that express pur
pose. Since coming to this state, Mr.
Korn has not only made extensive
chemical examination of the soil in
different portions of the state, hut has
actually experimented with seed, aud
'mmpie crop6 wlUl very stisfac-
tory results. In Germauy the liest soil
yields about 11 per cent of saccharine
matter, in California it yields 12 per
cent and here about 16 per cent. Iu
addition to the gen tlemen whose names
appear as incorporators, a large num
ber of the leading business men and
capitalists are interested. Telegram,
