The appointment of Mr. DamOn to

to by Mrs. Pearl L. Dlg
nau, at Portland, formerly of this city,
and known as Pearl Damon, a daugh
ter of A. H. Damon, and she appeared
by her attorneys, . A. Jeffrey and 8.
J.I. Fleming, and asked that she be ap
pointed guardian of her father's per
son and estate or. that Mr. Olinger ."be
appointed to the guardianship, object
ing to the appointment of A. O. Da
mon, her uncle, on the grounds that
she and her uncle were not on good
terms, and that she would not receive
Justice at bis hands.
. The court overruled the objections
and appointed A. O. Damon, stating
that he considered him a. most proper
and suitable person to be appointed to
the office. It appears that Peart Dlg
nau. who Is a daughter of A.. H. Da
mon, immediately after his commit
ment to the Asylum, sold all of , the
household furniture, pocketed the pro
ceeds I and went to Portland. It Is
claimed by Mr. Damon's friends that
his daughter got away with about $500
worth of furniture, taking everything
from candlesticks up. It is also under
stood that the present guardian will
Immediately take such legal steps as
are necessary to protect the interests
of Mr. A. H. Damon and recover the
household furniture so sold, or its
value in money. ; ' .
The, estimated value, of the estate of
Mr. Damon, consisting of real and per

Your correspondent.' "Humanity," Is
hardly fair to myself or to your readers
when he makes' the bare statement

Asylum, The bill referred to is Senate
Bill No. 69. It is four pages in length
and contains nine sections,, only a few
lines of It referring to the transporta
tion of patients to the Asylum. Section
9 provides: 1
"In case an Insane person committed
to the Asylum under the provisions of
this act shall be Dossessed of real or
personal property sufficient to pay such
charges and expenses, the Judge shall
appoint a guardian for such person
and when there is not sufficient money
In the hands of the guardian, the Judge
may order a sale of the property of

. It seemed to me that It would be
nothing less than outrageous for ' the
state to confiscate the small sum t the
average patient woud have when com
mitted to the Asylum! Comparatively

the readers of the Statesman, Inasmuch
as it concerns one of. the leading citl
sens of Salem. Prof.-W. C. Hawley,
Of the Willamette University:
: Under the auspices of the head board

officers of the Woodmen of the World,
the elegant new office building of the
organisation at t 1441 - to 1447 Tremont

escorted , through the - spacious new
quarters .f Particular pride waa taken,
not only in showing the rooms of the
head officers, but also the three im

TO FORM A GIGANTIC POOL FOR
PURPOSfc. OF ROOSTING MARKET
WILL PAY 25 CENTS AND
1IALF PROFITS THE MARKET
IS FIRM. - - - '
. So far as could be learned last night
hop sales were very.few yesterday, the
only sale reported being that of
ifce A. Denny lot, of Jefferson consist
ing, of 110 bales, to J. Carmlchael, of
this city, for 25 cents. The market
appears, ta be . growing firmer every
day and the growers are holding out
very strongly , in the effort to procure
the very highest price obtainable for
their crops. ,'- ' '- .- '. -'' .'..'
. The only new feature of Interest , I
the situation is a movement to corner
all of the hops remaining In the grow
ers' hands for the purpose of boosting
the market, i It is understood, from
pretty good authority, that one of the
leading firms of this city 1 inaugurat
ing such a movement and will make an
effort to carry" it through.
As near as can be figured by several
of the dealers., there Is not more than
15,000 bales, at the outside, left In the
growers' hands In' Oregon, and, 'ac
cording to the revised estimates, the
yield will not exceed 78.000 bales for
the whole state, which Is a great fall
ing off from the earlier estimates of
between 85,000 ami sO.OOO bales. ; l
;The terms which this firm, which
proposes to corner-the balance of-the
hops on band and consolidate them Into
one gigantic pool, will propose rb the
growers will be to pay a cash advance
of 25 cents per pound for their hops
and then give them one-half of the ad
vance In the price realised.
' If this move Is put Into execution It
will certainly cause some likely (skirmishing-
among the local dealers, many
of whom. have a pile of orders on hand
which they are very anxious . to fill.
The situation is certainly growing more
Interesting. every! day,
NORTH YAKIMA. Nov. It. The
hop situation in Yakima county I
firm, with very few sales taking place
at present prices. Buyers are offering
from 251& to 26 cents, but the growers,
except " those who contracted last
spring, are holding out for higher
prices. The buyers would take all the
hops in the county at the above figures
without delay, but the big growers seu
30c a pound and are holding out for
something like that figure. During the
week past only a few. bales changed
hands at the above offer, and there are
no prospective sales on hand so far as
reported. . ; . ,.. , .- .
- The production this year Is not near
what it was last season. A buyer who
is well posted on the production said
this morning that it Is pretty hard at
present to arrive at the number of
bales, but he -thought 12.000 would be
the limit. ' Last year the production
was 13,000 and the year before 14,000,
thus there has been a gradual decrease
In the yield of 2.000 bales , In two
years. This Is accounted for partly by
the abandonment of hopya'rds during
that period when a low price prevail
ed, and this year only one small patch
was planted. -:
Another reason for the low ' produc-
"On is on account of the season not be
ing propltioes for hopgrowing. Of the
total number of bales produced it Is
estimated that about one-half of them
have changed hands from, the grower
to the buyer. A. E. Poole ft Co., of
this place, have bought 2,000 bales i of
uncontracted hops, paying from 254 to
26 cents, while almost all their con
tracts have been fulfilled. Nearly one
half the growers had cont racted for
their product fit prices ranging from
10 to 15 cents per pound. This was
done before the price went up. and of
course they could not help themselves,
and faithfully carried out their agree
ments. Contracts of this kind are made
by growers who cannot carry them-,
selves through the season and must
have money to pay the expenses of
cultivating sand harvest!. Evening
