roads leading out of Salem that will
subscribe the moat volunteer work
and cash , towards, the constrctlon of

raised, and Marion county aiding- in
the work. Judge 'Scott said that If
this Is done, and if it meets with the
favor and success expected. Marion

Balsam Best Tree of North
Woods for Pulp Manu
The importance of finding a satisfac
tory substitute for spruce for the man
ufacture of paper pulp led to a commer
cial study of the bajsam fir, which Mr.
Raphael G. Zon, of the Bureau of For
estry, has just concluded.
(The rapid disappearance of spruce,
the best tree In the north -woods for the
manufacture of pulp, has foreed pulp
makers to use more and more balsam,
and has brought that tree; once despised
and neglected. . Into a very impor
tant place. Four years ago practically
no balsam was used by pulp manu
facturers, marry of whom are now us
ing from 25 to 50 per cent of It. .The
amount of balsam used depends entire
ly on the spruce supply near where the
different mills are located. The smaller
the amount of. spruce available - the
greater is the amount of balsam used.
j Pulp manufacturers find balsam the
blest substitute for spruce which can
be found in the north -woods. Other
trees there are. which might serve well
for paper pulp, but they are not native
to the country where the mills are lo
cated. Pulp mills are enormously
heavy and expensive, and thvwood
must be brought to them- they cannot
be taken to the wood. The pulp man,
therefore. In his choix of a substitute,
for his diminishing supply of spruce,
is confined to the very few species that
grow in association with spruce,, and
of these species balsam is at once the
most abundant and the most promising".-'
J The present method of making- pulp
out of balsam is to grind it or treat it
with chemicals alone with spruce. The
results are not satisfactory. Balsam
mixed with spruce produces an Inferior
grade of pulp. Mr. Zon suggests that
it would be much better If balsam were
handled independently of spruce. The
balsam fibers are not nearly bo tough
and strong-as those of spruce, and he
pressure of the grinders, which are ad
Justed for spruce fibers,; is too pow
erful for the fibers of balsam and they
are torn and weakened. For the same
reason, the chemicals used in the treat
ment of spruce fiber weaken and dis
solve the fibers of balsam when usea in
the same strength. Examples of what
can be done with balsam in the manu
facture of paper are found in France,
where, the tree Is mate to produce good
book papers There iot only the main
trunk but even the i op of the tree is
used.,- :- r 1 ' ' " 'J '
The sllvlcutturftl features of the bal
sam are related by Mr. Zon, who has
studied the tree carefully throughout
its range, but particularly in Maine
and the Adirondack. Spruce has been
cut for many years, "-while balsam has
scarcely been cut at all; hence balsam
has taken the place of and Is crowding
out the spruce. The change In species
in the north woods is hastened by the
great superiority of balsam as a seel
tree, for balsam bears seeds every year,
while the spruce seed only once in sev
en years. These conditions make It ap
parent; how very .desirable it is that
pulp manufacturers should use balsam
wherever possible, for In doing- so they
r.ot only lessen the drain on the limit
ed amount of spruce left, but they rive
the tree a chance to grow and repro
duce itself. This point Mr. Zon brings
out forcefully. . ,
The results of Mr. Zon's work will
appear this winter in the form of a bul
letin published by the Bureau of For
estry.: . " .

Ahswere to Governor's Circu-
lar Letter AiTivins: On
i Every Train v
(From Thursday's Dally.)
Six answers were yesterday received
ip the executive department to. th
circular letter sent J out by Governor
Chamberlain to the members of the leg
islature Tegai ding- the special session.
These Answers are from C. B. Watson,
of Ashland; W. R. Biiyeu, of Albany;
W. Tyler Smith, of Sheridan; T. II.
Johnston, -of Dufur and W. C. Hale,of
Gants Pass, and 'Squire Fftrrar, of iSa
lem. All of these gentlemen, with the
exception of Senator Farrar, of this
county, indorse "the Governor's action
and urge that a special session be
called for no other purpose than to
remedy the defeat in the Phelps tax
law and Ho adjourn immediately "after
that matter was disposed of.'
Senator Farrar, howler, : is strong
ly 3pposal t the' calling: of a fp-ecial
session, but, If it is, that the ."business
of the session should be confined to the
tax question." Mr. Farrar, In support
of his nosition. In -part, says:
"There will be much differertfce of
opinion as to the manner of correcting
the error made in" passing- the new tax
bill. Some will want to repeal the
new law, while others will want to pro
vide for a levy for . the present year
and let the new law stand, and so it
will go on to the end of the "session.
"On the whole, I do not feel that I
should make any request that a spe
cial session of the legislature should be
called at this -time. Nor do I feel that
I could say that I would oppose all
and any other matters of legislation that
might be brought up, when I do ; not
know what the subject matter might
be.'! ; . '
W.. R Biiyeu. of Albany, is con
vinced thut an emergency exists -which
makes It necessary for the . Governor
to call a. special session, but lie also
thinks -the work ; of the , legislature
should be confined to remedying- the
defects in the law for which the session
is called.. . ; , , .
;I believe," . says Mr. Biiyeu, "that
the extra session should - not continue
more than two or three days, and think
that it would be a public calamity if
the legislature, at this special session,
should open the floodgates of legisla
tion arid continue in session for any
considerable length of lime."
Judge W. -C. Hale, of Grants Pass,
in! his answer to the letter, while in a
manner opposed to the calling of the
special . session, thinks that the defect
in the law t should be remedied but
that, this should not take more than
three days, and that the only thing- that
should be done would be to repeal the
new law and allow the law, which was
giving- general satisfaction, to continue
in operation. He says:
"1 shall be in favor of departing for
my home the third day, after reaching
Salem, and I believe that i would be
prudent to forego the session unless a
majority of the members express them
selves to forego legislation except that
to -remedy the defect found in the as-?
sessment. . : "
He also takes occasion to score the
Multnomah delegation in the following
language: , ;
"I see no necessity for the special,
session except to assist Multnomah
county o ut of the dilemma she was plac
ed jin by her own delegation.. It
seems to me that the sch'Jl districts
and municipalities can make their as
sessment and have it collected under
the law irt force. The counties can
ceVtainly continue to accrue unauthor
ized Indebtedness as heretofore, except
as to Multnomah county."',
Senator W. Tyler Smith, of Yamhill.
Lincoln and Tillamook, says: "In at
least a part of the district which I
represent the . Inability to levy a tax
on the assessment of 1903 will result
in great hardship. I trust that the ses
sion, if called, will be short. I have no
bills to Introduce, but I must decline

Senator T H. Johnston, of Dufur,
says: ": - . . . .
.' "I "iim fully convinced that a failure
to4caIl a. special session of the legis
lature; to pass a tax law for 1904, would
be a heavy loss to fhe counties, towns
and school districts in fbis district. I
am in favor of passing the tax law
and then adjourning. It should not
take more" than three or four days." v
A letter was also received from J. N
Teal, of Portland, which urges the call
ing of a special, session, calling the "at
tention to the deplorable condition of the
finances of the city of Portland and
citing that many other counties - and
towns would find themselves In a bad
state of affairs If the condition, were
not remedied. The Portland Taxpay
ers' League also sent strong resolutions,
adopted by" the unanimous vote of the
league, favoring the prompt calling of
the legislature to give, relief to Port
land and Multnoman county
There are numerous questions which
must be taken , Into consideration - by
Governor 'Chamberlain before he Issues
a call for" a specHl session of the leg
islature or decides to decline, as the
case may be. which the request of the
members of that' body 1 cannot elimi
nate -or their pledges to hold a brief
session relieve One of them Is the law
providing that all measures passed ly
a subsequent legislative assembly and
vetoed by the Governor must be pre
sented to the next session of the legis
lature 'for its consideration, and the
law does not discriminate, or specify as
to whether the session shall be special
or regular. r
. Ther were' a, ntimber of vetoes upon
bills passed by the last regular session,
arid ."Secretary" of State Dunbar Is of
the opinion that these must of neces
sity come, up-before the special session
ir it is called, as the law does not pro
vide that is, the constitution any
manner of avoiding: ft. Therefore, if
these vetoes are presented, the mem
bers of the assembly would be In duty
bound to passupon them. The princi
pal act vetoed by the Governor after
the last session was the pecial appro
priation bill which, carried with it an
a'ppropriatidn for the State Fair, anoth
er for the purchase "of , the Patton res
idence as the Governor's mansion, and
other items of .expense claimed by the
participants. This , bill would In all
probability come up for consideration.
The constitution also . provides tha t
the Governor, before a special or regu
lar session 'of the legislature is conven
ed., mast issue a. call for a special elec
tion to fill. such vacancies which may
exist in the legislature at the time of
its calling: Should a. special session be
called there are three vacancies to be
filled, all of . which are In ' the Senate,
as follows: The seat made vacant by
the election of State Senator J. N.
WiliiarnSorr, "ot Malheur, Curry, Wasco
and Klamath' -ountlesF as a mem'-cr
of Congress . from the second: district
of Oregon: the appointment of Sena
tor John D. paly, of Benton . county,
as surveyor general for Oregon, and
Senator 'Fulton, of. Clatsop, "as United
State's Isena t Air. These ' vacancies -will
necessitate the. holding of. special elec
tions in , eael county If it cannot be
avoided." ' ' " J ;-
United States Senator Fultqn has al
ready filed his resignation ' as senator,
but Congressman' Williamson' and Sur
veyor Genera Daly have, up to the
present time, ' failed to do so and, so
far as the Governor Is concerned, he
has ho record of these vacancies and.
if the people of those counties concern
ed so elect "and , are willing that the
former membe should represent them
during the .-brief special, session, it
may be tha the CJovernor will take
steps U avoRl calling an election in
their 'counties, thereby sav ing them a
considerable item of expense.
It was suggested, during a discussion
among the state officials yesterday, that
the Governor could address communi
cations to the official newspapers of
the several counties, asking for an ex
pression of the people: upon the matter,
as to whether or not they desire a spe
cial election and then draw his conclu
sions from the sentiments expressed
by the majority. The Governor has
hot discrissed this matter as yet, howf
ever, and If cannot be said as to what
his position j. It is pretty generally
believed, though, that, if it is possibl?
for him. to, do so, he will avoid the
calling of special elections and save
the people of .each county at least $1,500

The Local Hop Market is In a
; Very Inactive Con
dition -
A cold wave seems to have strucl.
the hop market in Salem, rrobably the
cold rains liave had a cooling arid
dampening effect, for Just -- at present
no business is being done. Dealers are
a unit in reporting-that they have n6
orders, and consequently. t v nnot do
business: Just now. There is no changfe
in the market, hops being worth fully
as much, as a week ago, and with every
prospect jof continuing strong, and yet
there are no orders 'n the local market.'-,
v.":" -r." . "1-
ln the past three weeks there nas
been a tremendous amount of hops
held ' in this'--, vicinity, and in fact all
over Oregon. So many that local deal
ers i several days ago expressed sur?
prise .that the price was holding up so
well in the face of such heavy sales.
- The fact of . thte case is that about
one month ago the : hop market was
weak. - ith the price ranging in the
neighborhood, of 20,. cents, "and. growr
ers stubbornly refusing to sell; then
dealers suddenly became active, the
market advancing to about 2$ and 24
cents per pound, where it still remains.
English dealers came into the market
and placed heavy orders, which were
quickly filled and thousands of bales
have been sold . and shipped to Lon
don. ! Eastern dealers loaded up, but
brewers showed, a: bashfulness about
making purchases, preferring to buy
only a few at a time, or practice their
old hand to mouth tactics, and the
dealers, taking alarm at this, with
drew their orders.- This was the nat
ural result of the" liberal selling which
has been done by the growers and
could be expected.
Yesterday a large number of grow
ers were in - the city hunting 'buyers
a-tid asking for offers on their .crop,
but not a single sale was made, grow
ers everywhere meeting the same an
swer: : "We have no -orders and can't
use them." Some offers were made,
but Hot at prices which were apt to
tempt the grower with h's eye on the
25 cent mark.
Early in the week a number of sales
were made, mostly for small lots. Ac
cording to the closest figures obtain
able 30,000 bales of hops have already
been shipped from Oregon and another
10,000 bales are held by dealers await
ing shipment or speculation. It is also
claimed that upward of 30,000 bales of
hops have been1 sold to English deal
ers, although the latest custom house
reports show that only 56S3 baleshave
thus far been exported. . The remainder
were only bought recently and have
not yet begun to move, tl is also prob
able that they may be delayed some
what on account, of the shortage in
cars. -
". The price of Pacific coast hops, as
quoted in New Yorlc was formerly
equal to the quotations on New York
state hops, but due to the incessant
hammering cn this coast the price has
been crowded down till Pacifies are
now quoted; at 27 and 28 cents, while
state are listed at 31 and 32 cents, a
wide difference, where there Is no dif
ference in the quality of hops and
both are plentiful. There is no more
reason now for a. difference in prices
than existed earlier in the season, and
according to all authorises the prices
should now remain the same. It is
argued that the cause of the different
quotations is the fact that there are
so many poor hops In this market that
the standard has been . lowered, but
this is weak, since the 'quotations are
for choice, ' and medium grades are
correspondingly weak.
Export Demand Good.
The Producers Price Current, of New
York, says, under date of November
7: '
Receipts for week...
Receipts from Sept. 1

(From the Atchison, - Kan, ' rally
. :iobr-.)
This is the season when the woman
who knows the best remedies 5or croup
Is in demand In every neighborhood.
One of the most terrible things In the
world is to be awakened in the mid
dle of the night by a whoop from one
of the children. The croup remedies
are almost as sure to be lost in case
of croup, as a revolver ;is sure to be
lost in case of burglars. There used
to be an. old-fashioned remedy for
croup, known as' hive syrup 'and tolu,
but some, modern 'mothers say that
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is bet
ter, and does not cost so much. It
causes the patient to . "throw up the
phlegm" quicker, and gives relief in a
shorter time. "Give this remedy as soon
as the croupy cough appears and it will
prevent the attack. It never falls and
is pleasant and safe to take. For sale
