The hop growers of the Vilamette
valley, representing the membership of-l
the Oregon Hop Growers Association,
improved the time that . was allotted
them by the Farmers Congress yes
terday morning and held a very in
terestirfg meeting in the council cham
ber m the city hall building.
The mcetimr was called to order at
10 145 by M- L. Jones, president of the
association. A number erf growers
were in attendance., Upon request of
Frank Feller, of Butteville. treasurer
cf the association, Mr. Jones addressed
the meeting on the present conditions
and the future outlook as he was im
pressed by his recent Eastern trip,
Mr. Tones said, in parti
"I suodosc the Question that interests
yon growers most is the outlook : for

That may be considered largely a dus
iness proposition. I can not give any
new information but I learned a. great
deal of nractieal knowledge 1

crop depends largely on the action of
growers. borne good sales nave oeen
made br the association. A pool to be
effectual should control 00 per cent of
the crop. If so. buyers would be seek
ing hops at prices satisfactory enough
to cover cost of production. The re
sult has been to make the -association
a competitor of growers on the outside,
enabling buyers to purchase hops very
cheaply. c ' -r
"While in the east I learned that a
representative of an Oregon hop-buy
ing firm, was offering. to deliver hops
for 7cta and mnking atstattment that He-
woukt make all the sales He could, and
wouM buv the hops of the growers at
his own figures. This circumstance,
with growers disposing of hops at 4,
K and 6 cents, are conditions with which
the association is obliged to Contend.
"Buyers are disposed to represent
to the association that we must dispose
of our hops at ogee rr there will be
no' market. I have the assurance of
targe dealers of New iYork City, that
it would be unwise to rush'the hops on
to the market for the reason that it
had a depressing effect. He also in
formed me there would oe a demana

the market would continue lor six

"The. averaee export value (at New
York) of hops during the month of
Tune for a period of ten years. -logo to
8oo inclusive, was i6.ft cents, while
for the month of October the average
for the same period was 16.67 centsi
Hence. I. see no just -cause for alarm
"The president of the United State?
Brewing Association told me that the
proper way for us to do business wa,
direct with the brewers. He represent
ed that brewers did not care to do bus
iness with individual growers for snp-

ferred to deal with the association.

the only iwy to protect the hop mar

HJ L. Bents, of Butteville, secretary
of the association, said that from a cen

60.000 bales, and that practically all of
the unsold hpps are controlled by the
In this connection Dr. J. V. Hill
said about .16.000 balesj of the 1899 crop
had been sold and, shipped out of the
state. There were 22.000 bales in the

the total yield at 62.000 or 63.009 bales
there remained about 5000 bales of un

Ever since our announcement of a
strictly high -grade wheel at $35, a
price from $S to $15 less than any sim
ilar wheel in the world, we've had
scores of lookers. The Iver Johnson
at $35 is, just that wheel. It's made
by the. Iver Johnson Arms and Cycle
wprks. a concern that's made firearms
for 29 years that are known in every
village and hamlet in the United States,
and - they have been building bicycles
for 16 years, ever since the days of the
old ordinary. So their goods need no
introduction to the trade. Every piece
of metal in their wheels is of the high
est possible -rade, and when they cut
the price $15 this .year they made a
bold move.
You come and see it. iBy the time
the wheel season opens we can supply
you- , Samples now ready for you.
The tooo Tribune is the smoothest
proposition in wheeldom that you'll
ever find, like all its predecessors it
runj "Jikcta dream." There will never
be a wheel on the market: that can out
run a Tribune. The shape of their
bearings ahd - sprockets makes this a
possibility. I have them coming again
in the $40 and $50 models, and in the
chainless, aM of which present as grace
ful lines as anything you've ever seen.
My; iady riders in '09 can not peak
too . highly of the easy running qual
ities of the Tribune. LadiesV want, a
wheel that jushes easy. , This is the
one. They will be in plain black again
with black rims. The chainless is a
perfect gem of a wheel in all its lines.
You'll do well to wait on all of these

Reply to Inqurle Made by a Professor
of an Arkansas Collejfe No Cor.
ruptlon In Oregon.
For 'Some time past the proposition
to secure an enactment by congress,
providing for the election of United
States senators by the direct vote of the
t t - - - - - r -.-i
the United States, and leading papers
in the largest cities of the country have
asked prominent .officers and citizeni
for -expressions of their views in the
matter. . Such inquiries have several
times been addressed to Gov. T, T.
Geer recently, his answer being favor
able to the proposition, giving as a
reason the danger of present methods
in the way of holdups.
Yesterday the governor received an
inquiry from an unexpected source
bearing on the same subject. Prof. J.
M. Shaw, of Ouachita, College, Arka
delphia, Arkansas, asking the -following
ones-ion: -
"If you think that the legislative
election of United States senators is
more corrupt, in your state, than the
popular election of other ofheers, please
reply." , :
The governor, in replying to this let
ter, said:
"I do not believe Oregon has ever
had a United States senator whose
election was. secured by the use of
money. I do not recall that it has ev
er been charged even by those who
were politically opposed to the success
ful candidate. The objection 'to the
system of legislative election is the op
portunity; it furnishes - for hold-ups.
dead-locks, and the prevention of any
election sn all. Assuming that by the
word ' 'corrupt' yon mean the use of
money, 'yt may be said that Oregon has
never had a corrupt popular election.
At any rate, popular government hasj
no resting place wnatever ,11 its inter
ests cajmot be confided to the keeping
of thex4rnmon people." .
