He also declared it in the inter est of hopgrowers to cease the agita tion, which has a tendency to restrict the sale of beer.

Uut the secret of success of the indus try lies in production, not in market ing. With proper spjaying, cultivation and harvesting, the grower in Oregon can raise the best hops in the United States. But the last year's crop is a detriment to our industry, and' it will take us several years to regain the ground we have lost by reason pOf put ting on the market poor hops." James Winstanlcy, who has charge of the Salem office of the as-'ciation, has returned front a: business .'viit in Portland where lie conferred with other officers j of the association, buj when seen yesterday, afternoon, declined to 1'iake any statement, explaining; that it was purely of a personal nature.

It is understood the' Lreport will show a saving to the dis-: tnct during the past year, ot aoout $3000 over the expenses, of last year. Among the recommendations to be made y the board at the annual meet ing, will probably be, that a special levy of one mill be levied for the purpose of placing a steam -heating plant in the East Salem school, to replace the fur nace that is now in use there and which is a constant item of expense in the matter of repairs. . It is understood that a majority, of the board is in favor of and will recom mend that an additional year be added to the present high school course, which embraces but nine grades. At the regular -meeting of the oard of directors last night the bill of W. H. Savage for $. -for taking the school census was allowed. A certified state ment from County Clerk W. W. Hall showing the valuation of taxabie prop erty in School -District No. 24 to be $22.214.171.1241, was read. The board briefly considered the mat ter of levying a special tax of one mill for supplying the East school with steam heaters. - - A summarv of the school census, just completed, shows that there are 2619 children ojf school age residing within the district as follows: Boys 1289, girls The salary of Mrs, Alice II.

Things political in Marion countv. preparatory to t4e camoaisni that wi end at the June election are beeinninsr to assume a state of activity. It will be noticed that the populist party central committee has had a preliminary rneet ing and whil they have done nothing dehmte, the opposition to cSie republi can forces is bezinnimr to tret into lin -7-whetheT in double, treble or single iine, no one nas yet authority to state, or the temerity to -predict. There seems to be an air of rnnfi. dc-nce in die republican ranks. For the dominant party there has been no call yet ior any meetings, -excepting dab meetings, and it will probably be the first - of March or thereabouts i before any other meetings are held. . i Up to a (ew weeks ago there seemed few candidates for the- various county offices, but this aspect of affairs has rardically changed since, and now var ious names are mentioned in connec j . 1 . t . 1 . . , . . , . . nun TWfiui me paying places in rne gut of the electors of "Old Marion." It is said that the friends of Frank T. Wrrghtman have sbcen urging that Kcrrucman o oecome a candidate on the republican ticket for county judge. Mr. Wrightman has many well-wishers throughout the county who are confi dent of his abilinesi and wjio regard rum as deserving of any horror which he many seek,, or rather which may seek nun. ' For ihc same office John H. Scott's name is mentioned.! Mr. Scott is a rising young attorney and a very vigor ous ami straightforward business man. He has grown up here, and has by his strict adherence to - correct principles secured 4nr himself a firm place in the public esteem. The present imntrribent. Judee G. P. Terrell, is understood to be a candi date for re-election, i It is reported that John M. Watson. of Turner, ex-ounty cormnissioner. would not be averse to accepting the nomination for' -county judge on this ticket. Ex-Judge ,W. C. ijubbard is also said to be a candidate for the same place. Some of the people of. the north end of the county connect' the name of lion. W. T. Grimm with this distinc tion. For county assessor there are several candidates in the "field." The friends of tihe present incumbent. J. W. Hofoart. assert that his :eood record should : en title hjm to another term in this im portant office. t Henry C Porter, of. Awmsville. is mentioned in this connection. His neighbors say that he is especially qualified for the duties, of the place and they think he is deserving of the hon ors tfliereof. There seems no one to dispute the claims of cither A. L. Downing, coun-i tjr treasurer, or J. H. Roland, county recorder, to a re-nomination and re election. For the nomination for the office of sheriff there are several candidates. It is said that Alonro T. Wain wouW not hesitate to make 4hc race again, if caU ed upon to do so by the republicans in county convention 'assembled, and it is promised by his1 friends that if he Ls 90 called upon hal certainly will make a successful run. Hon. David H. Lkoney. of Jefferson, is said by some to be in training for this nomination, but tin's is not stated here as a certainty.! Lieut. Chas. A. Murphy, ol this city, is also said to be a candidate, his friends basing his claims for consideration up on the fact that he wen to fight for his country in the Philippines. Prof. George W.f Jones will, certain ly succeed himself as county school superintendent. f he so desires. The-e is no one to dispute either his ability or his deserving qualities. Various names are mentioned in con nection with the legislative .ticket, but the rumors are soi'many and uncertain that the reporter defers the mention of any or all of the candidates until such time as things in this particular con tention shall have become somewhat more settled. AN INCORRIGIBLE LAD. Eu gene Johns, the i4-year:old son of Hen ry Johns, who' resides about two miles south of this city, was caught by the night agent at the Southern Pacific passenger- depot at .1 o'clock yesterday morning and detained until Officer Smith arrived fromi the cityj when the lad was turned over to his custody. The little fellow had persisted through out the evening in Juniping on and off the moving trains, endangering his life thereby and it was Awhile carrying on this dangerous practice about the be lated northbound overland that he was captured by the agent. ; There is an ordinance prohibiting this performance on the part of all persons not in the employ of the railroad company, and there is a second ordinance which makes it a misdemeanor for minors to be on the streets after 8 o'clock in the evening. Thus young Johns was vio lating both ordinances. He was taken before City Recorder N. J. Judah yes terday morning, who inquired into the case and took the same nnder advise ment until 10 o'clock this momi.ig, in tending in the meantime to communi cate with the lad's parents relative to having him placed in the state reform atory.

Sharpe, was. conspicuous and made his presenccc known eariy by tnsistmg that matters discussed should be kept from the public, which brought out the . statement by a good-natured populist, that a political party which advocated the initiative and referendum could not afford to hold star chamber proceedings, and should do nothing that its members need be ashamed oL However, it was decided to permit no reporters to take the proceedings in detail. Several resolutions were introduced and a warm discussion was had, but all matters were finally deferred; until the next meeting, which will be held on Thursday, February 15th. at the city halt One resolution by R.

An officer who served m the last war inBurmah told the present writer that he himself had half a dozen of these packages intrusted to him. and forwarded them to an official at Cal cutta, lest he himself should be laid low. It came about that only two of the packages had to le opened, one of the men, being killed and the other dying of fever. One of ; the men. it then came out.twas the son of a rich Lancashire merchant, and had left a wife and child in the charge of his father, none of them knowing what had become of hkn. In the other case the man was the third on of a bar onet, the latter a gentleman living in dire poverty, who had once been an officer in the same regiment. In the case of a man killed at Mai wand, and who had foueht with dis tinction, a package he had (riven to the captain ot his company, and which had been forwarded to higher quarters, was. on being opened, found to con tain a confession of murder, done un der circumstances of great provocation, at Hull some cars before.
