It is reported that as the outlook for
the hopbuyers’ combine is going to keep
the prices of hops below w hat they
should Ire, there will be several hundred
bales of hops shipped from hero direct
to London, and a good competent man
sent with them, to make sales over
there. If the market does not open up
in the near future it is likely that the
greater |>ortioii of the hops from this
place will be shipped.

One of the improvements that has
been going on in our little burg during

line of gioceries and notions taken in
connection with the postoflice. Mr.
Garrison, our genial postmaster, has
this week replenished his stock, until
now he can satisfy the most fastidious
along those lines. Only united effort on
the part of our citizens can make this
enterprise a success, and as “patronize
home industry” is a good proverb, we
should take it to ourselves.

Mr. E. B. Merchant, son of Hon. Wm.
Merchant of this county, started a few
weeks ago for a trip around the world
He has reached Hong Kong, China, and
writes back some interesting facts. We
quote as follows:
I am quite well and enjoying my trip
immensely We had a very pleasant
voyage. Tile weather was excellent and
the sea most like a river. We had about
48 hours in Yokolioma, Japan, a place
very interesting to strangers. Took a
gin rickshaw, a two-wheeled concern
pulled by a coolie, and went into the in
tenor through riee patches, etc. Every
thing seems to be planted in patches,
from 50 to 100 feet square, and about io
■laps to the square. Our next stop was
Coba, a much smaller place than Yoko-
lioma, but does much more business,
file Morgan City transport was wrecked
near there. I talked with a number of
the boys off her. The crew were all
saved and part of the freight. Our next
stop was at Nikasaka, an American port.
It has a beautiful harbor, but there does
not seem to be the push and busin-ss
there. It has some immense coal mines
very near, but everything is done by the
Japs There are very few horses. The
Japs and Chinese coolies do all the work,
haul and pack on their backs. 'Tis quite
a sight to see a dozen or so pulling a big
truck filled with freight. They will pull
you all day in a gin rickshaw for 75c in
Mexican or 37?ic their money. When
we first came over the novelty of having
them pull us around was great, but we
have become somew hat accustomed to it
now . We next stopped at Shanghai, the
metropolis of tl’.e east and a very fine
place, too. The reads are grand and the
large stone buildings are immense, with
large cotton manufacturing, ship build
ing and an immense coast trade. The
streets and boulevards are superb, being
no heavy hauling at all with horses,
there is no dust, and they are as hard
and smooth ns a floor. I have an oppor
tunity to go in business with an old es
tablished man there. I may return in
the spring, as I like Shanghai very well.
We will leave for Manila Monday next.
Hong Kong is an English town, and un
der English rule. It is situated on an
island, and the whole place is a marvel,
covered with old anteqnated inansionsof
stone, large stone drives and walls, and
has one of the finest hotels I ever was
in. The meals are very fine, and they
furnish a Chinaman to every boarder.
The rates are (7.50 per day, Mexican, or
#3.75 American. This hotel has some
300 rooms, and they are most always
lull. Just now there is quite a stir, owing
to the rush to Manila. This is the port
where most everything is reshipped. I
have got part of my freight with me. but
the balance was to have come by the S.
S. Columbia from Portland, but I see
she has been chartered by the govern
ment as a transport, and I have been in
formed that the Monmouthshire, which
is also from that port, will bring it. Hong
Kong is full of people going and return
ing from Manila. They report very fa
vorably of the resources there.
During the w inter of 1897 Mr. James
Reed, one of the leading citizens and
merchants of Clay, Clay county, W. Va.,
struck his leg against a cake of ice in
such n manner as to bruise it severely.
It became very much swolen ami pained
him so badly tliat. ho could not walk
without the ai l of crutches. He was
treated by physicians, also used several
kinds of linainent ami two nnd a half
gallons of whiskey in bathing it, but
nothing gave any relief until he began
using Chamberlain’s l’ain Halm. This
brought almost n complete cure in a
week's lime and he believes tliat had he
not used this remedy his leg would have
had to be amputated. Pain Rahn is un

“ The hop imu ket in Salem is declin
ing," was the rather startling declaration
made by a prominent Salem buyer
y esterday afternoon. "I am now tilling
many orders at 7 and 7'._. cents and
think I can continue to (ill orders at
those figures. The very choicest quality
is quoted at 10 cents.”
The situation remains unimproved,
locally, and practically nothing is being
done. No sales are reported and only
contracted hops are being shipped. At
the present, time there are 2.000 bales in
tho Southern Pacific Company’s ware
house in this city, and but very few
bales are living received.
As a consequence of tho present un
satisfactory conditions, the growers of
the northern part of the county have
organized an association for mutual pro
tection. By this plan they expect to
have sonic voice in establishing the
market, or at least to the extent that
they will realize a better price for their
■Iiinting Viiiulilll Hhensaut«.
Tuesday The Reporter was favored
with a pleasant call from Mrs, Win.
Merchant, Mrs. John Thomason and
Funtie Collins of Carlton, accompanied
by their friend Mrs. II. D. Griflin of
Portland. Mrs. Griffin is the wife of
Ex-Detective Griflin, and is visiting her
friends Mr. nnd Mrs. Merchant nnd Mr.
and Mrs. Thomason, and at the same
time trying to till a contract made with
her friends nt Portland, for a gift of
three hundred fat pheasants from the
fields of Yamhill. The Indy brought a
good gun along, and a faithful dog, and
so far has been able to secure fourteen
birds,leaving 28(1 yet to be captured.
She dare not shoot more than fifteen in
one day, therefore at least twenty days
will be the required length of the expe
dition unless Mrs. Griffin’s friends are
called upon to help around the restriction
placed upon pheasant hunters by tho
indiscriminate hand of the law.
Morlng llirlr Hop«.
Growers of hops aro not satisfied with
the prices offered, and many are storing
their product in hopes of realizing a
better figure later on. The Oregon City
Enterprise, “peaking of Clackamas
county farmers, says: Hop growers me
in no hurry to dispose of their hope, A
huge number of them have made ar
rangeiuents with the East Side 11. il.
Co., to use the company’s big height
house as a storage ro mi, and Agent
Fields says that space has already been
taken for over lOoO bales. The company
oilers free storugo room nnd the growers
will hold their hops for a better market.
Ihit very few yards have been contracted
for, ami those w ho have not contracted
do not care to sell at prevailing prices.
A number of teams are now hauling in
bales for storage, although in many yards
baling has not begun yet.

Ninety thousand dollars will be paid

Thia is based on the estimate, given by
the factory people, of a yield of 20,000

not make a greater profit than the wheat
