Market Report
(From Daily, Feb. nth.)
. Local dealers m hop have very little
to say these, days, regarding the move
ment of the 1899 'stocks.' One of these
gentlemen, who jvas yesterday seen by
a representative of the Statesman, said
that during the past week a Jew--lots
had been sold is this vicinity ! at 5 to
$y2 cents, bat that inquiries for hops
were few and the market arid prices had
not changed any lie expressed him
self as hopeful, however, believing that
' in a short timej there would: be a better
feeling in the market, and jthat higher
prices would prevail.
Lupulin, writing in the Mark Lane
Express, of London, under j date ol
January 22d, in discussing; the ; Euro
pean hop market, says: ;i . I
Although the course and condition
Kit tne juorougn iwy uw
undergone any important change dur
ing the -past week, there ar not want
ing signs that the firmness ot growers
in resisting the pressure of merchants
is producing an effect to the advantage
of the former. The healthy j demand
existing at the time of my report a
week ago has been strengthened and
somewhat developed, with- the result
that the advanced prices now quoted
are much more easily obtained. Col
ory hops arc getting scarcer, and any
. growers whose holdings "are of this
character need not hesitate to ask more
money for their stocks, as it I is quite
clear. that .merchants will be ready to
"yieldif : quotations are not too start
ling. , j i j
A brewing journal says I that while
the position of the trade is highly un
satisfactory, the severe tussle between
growers and consumers must soon be
decided in favor of the former, whose
determined stand against prices which
. they deem to be unremunerative must
almost immediately make them ruler?
of the market., This testimony from
an observer in the opposite camp , if
satisfactory and encouraging, and I
agree .with his remarks, only taking
exception to the .suggestion that the
unremunerative character-of the pres
ent prices is at all open to discussion.
' There is no possible doubt that recent
rates must have brought heavy losses
- to growers, however prolific jtheir cropr
may have been. Therefore, for self
protection, as well as for the general
credit of the industry, growers should
harden their hearts against j persuasion
in the contrary direction, and definitely
refuse to sell unless they can see some
profit, which point of view will neces
sitate further important advances upon
the figures now current. . j. j
v "The I weekly evidence of j the board
of .trade - returns proves that we havr
no reason to dread any influx of for
eign hops. Since the opening of the
, year.the. figures are substantially: lower
than during the corresponding weekf
nf Outward shipments of Eng
lish as well as continental hops; con
tinue to some extent, The tendency
of the whole course of events, therefore.-points
definitely to higher values.
I do not hesitate to repe4t that the
control of the English market is in the
hands cX English growers, and tht the
will only have themselves to blame iJ
they do not take full advantage of their
excellent position.
Valentine Loewi. of ; New York, in
the Producers Price Current, nndci

ni)oai me same innuences mat have
controlled the market for some weeks

not seem to be material change either
in. the volume tif business of the range
of values. The brewing trade keeps
itp fairly well, considerable flot being
delivered on 'old 'contracts, j and some
new sales making every day. (There is
undoubtedly less interest on the part
of exporters, which is probatory due to
the difficulty in obtaining" the desirable
qualities7: if the hops were better ship-

Brownsville Times:
Fred Brookman, who has a reputa
tion as a butter maker, has completed
arrangements for the establishing of a
first-class creamery in our midst. It
will be; located on the vacant lot just
north i ot Wm. McLiod's residence.
Work will commence oil its construc
tion at once and soon Brownsville will
be shipping another manufactured ar
ticle. Let t he good ' work go on. The
milk from more than 250 cows has
been pledged, and still there are others
to be heard from. We may expect
more than four hundred in the near fu
ture. Mr. Brookman guarantees to pay
Albany prices, and will , pay cash every

When Station Agent Smith at Clats
kenie arrived at his office vesterday
morning he found that burglars had
entered the' A. & C. depot during th?
night and blown open the company's
safe. -Nothing of value was secured,
however. The section tricycle was
found missing and it is. presumed that
the burglars made good their escape
by ckining dow nthe road on this.
There are two singular points in con
nection with the affair, namely; the
fact that a railroad safe at an im
portant station was broken into with
out anything of value being secured
and. second, that there has been no
evidence as to the direction the men
took. No trace of the tricycle has been
found and no one has yet been discov
ered who had seen it pass on the road.
Sheriff Linville was'promptly notified
of the occurrence and' immediately set
a watch for any suspicious-looking
characters in this city. Up to a late
hour last night, however, there was
nothing discovered to indicate that the
burglars had come this way.
The Abolition of Prison Lockstep.
To the uninitiated the Jockstep is
an interesting performance. It orig
inated from ihe necessity of handling
large bodies of convicts as. compactly
as possible. Each man's hand rests up
on the shoulders while his knees fit in
to the backs of the knees of the man
before liim. This necessitates a -short,
shuffling step, and swaying ; motion,
which it is claimed seldom leaves him.
For this reason its" abolition is urged.
This demonstrates the power of habit.
Another habit hard to get rid of is
constipation; but there is a remedy
that will cure this, as well as dyspepsia,
indigestion and biliousness, and that
is Hostetter's Stomach Bitters. It is a
magnificent tonic for the whole sys
tem, purifying the blood and improv
ing the appetite. Try it.

The average value: of Lcows on the
Brighton (Mass.) market of late has
averaged about $40; a good sized herd,
say thirty head, would fee valued at
$1200 at the above rate. For $1200
about 300 good,' serviceable ewes for
breeding " hot-house lambs can be
bought.. V Cow stables are just the
thing for sheep, , of course with parti
tions, etc, removed. The food that will
keep one cow will keep ten sheep, so
the expense J of keeping thirty cows
and 300 sheep is about i equal. At - a
moderate estimate c the lamb and wool
of each ewe will bring $8, or $80 for
ten ewes. This is far better that the
returns for the average New England
cow. As to the. 'labor part of sheep
rearing, theic is no milking, milk ped

I TheTRepublican, of Union, Oregon,
in its last issue, announces that the
woolen mills of that; place will begin
operations in a few days j under the di
rection of J. P. Wilbur, formerly, of
Salem.; who has been, appointed super
intendent.! Mr. Wilbur isi well known
in this city, where he was for a long
time a ; trusted operative -in the Salem
Woolen Mill's. The Republican says:
The Union Woolen Mills will resume-operations
the 1st of March.
This was the statement made to a Re
publican reporter by President Eaton
when asked about the matter. In the
meantime; the machinery and everything
about the factory will be placed in first
class condition in preparation for a
protracted run. j
"The? manufacturing! departments
are to be under the supervision of J.
P. "Wilbur, who has i been engaged as
superintendent by Mr. Eaton. Mr.
Wilbur is a man of many years of suc
cessful -experience as a woolen manu
facturer and will' no doubt meet every
requirement of the Union mill. The
new superintendent arrived from Salem
Thursday and at once took -up the work
in his new position and will have every
thing in readiness at thei time appoint
ed for the resumption Off operations' in
this important institution.
"New machinery has been received
t the mill for manufacturing of soap,
which is largely Used in scouring wool
and woolens. Heretofore .e factory
has purchased all soap used,- but now
this will be made right there, thus af
fording a market for a large amount of
tallow which will be used in the man
ufacturing of this soap.1 jThe mill still
has on hand a small stock of a superior
grade of blankets made by this mill,
but these are 'being gradually closed
out; j It is the intention qf the manage
ment to make a run on high grade
woolen blankets than whttch no factory
in the country makes a jmore superior
article. The mill will j give employ
ment to a latge number -of people, es
tablish a large pay-roll and be of great
benefit to the city and county and ev
erybody will be pleased j to -know that
operations are to be resumed so soon.

Pendleton East Orcgonian: J
A number of wheat raisers havej dis
posed of a considerable ; amount, f
wheat to the Pendleton roller (mills
since the-middle of Jast week.! It has
all been of a select quality, " and. - iit
some instances, the price paid; is. said
to have been as high as '45 and 46
ccnti per bushel, according to the qual
ity of the product. Most of the wheat
has been brought in by farmers north
of town, and Saturday was probably
the heaviest hauling day. j It was given
out; at the mill that the bulk of the
wheat brought in was some that' was
contracted for during the harvest! sea
son. The sellers said the price wn$
between 40 and 46 cents, but that lonly
a limited amount was brought np at
that price., Just cxactly: the . amount
purchased by, the mill could riot be as
pertained, but there -was not a suffici
ent quantity to cause any great flurry
among wheat men. Should there .Jtapt
pen to be a genral demand for wheat
at 45 cents, a great manyjwho are;now
holding on would no doubt dispose of
a large amount. Helix parties sayd that
very little wheat has been sola there
since harvesting. Hearing of the "price
being paid by the mill here, a number
tried to dispose of fheir holdings at a
similar price, but the mill refused to
take any more than they had already
contracted: for. 'While the riiajrrity
are anxious to sell their wheat as soon
as possible, they will not do so at
prices now being offered by local rlcal
crs. They say the market is bound
to raise, and they will hold on as long
as they cah. j ;
Ashland Tidings: j
The rush for timber lands ' in the
country cast, of Ashland keeps up, and
serves to recall the large sied limlwf
land boom of a few years past. An in
cident which took place1 at Iakevicw
last week shows the anxiety to obtain
timber land in the section of country
tributary to the Klamath; river. Two
timber land parties Arrived in Iake
view, after a ncck-and-neck race from
Klamath Falls, and filed on , seven
tracts of timber land about 10 miles
west from Klamath Falls, and near
Buck lake. One of the parties was
from California, and got 12 hours the
start of the other, which was an Ore
gon party, but the latter, won with fly
ing colors. The Oregon party con
sisted of H. H. Van VaJkenberg ' and
