has a good case against the ox-officlala
of the customs service who have been
indicted at Portland, Or. Notwith
standing the indicted men claim the ac
tion against them is inspired by politi

a Republican, says that this allegation
is untrue. He regrets as much as any
body that be had to perform the dis
agreeable work of detecting these olll-
cials in dishonest practice but ho was
bound to perform his duty and will
push the cases to the end.

HOPS AND CROPS.
Salem, July 20.
Hops aro in bloom and a good crop is
expected. The arms are from six to
ten feet long and very healthy. Some
yards are expected to yield 2500 pounds
to the acre; on low lauds tbe bops are
not so good, being more backward and
f n yellowish appearance.
Tbo clear, warm weather was very
beneficial to the ripening of fall sown
jrain. Full sown oats and wheat aro
being cut In Linn, Lane, Benton,
Douglas, Josephine and Jackson coun
ties; in Marlon, Polk aud counties to
tho north harvesting has not yet be
come general, but will be this week.
The grain cut so fur has been heavy, of
good quality and very satisfactory to
tho farmers. Tho spring . oats and
wheat will not yield an average unless
rain should full within tho next week.
Spring wheat Is not over 15 Inches high
and It will be bard to safely cut.
Puyallup Commerce, July 21: Puy
tllup growers have reason to feel en
couraged by tbe backwardness of the
lice, and have reasou to hope that the
pest may not be at all destructive this
year. Tho experience of Wisconsin
was peculiar. Some years ago tho state
produced 800,000 bales. Tbe lice came
on, and wero allowed to destroy tbe
crop; tho production dwindled to noth
ing. Finally tho lice disappeared, and
lost year Wisconsin began to again raise
a few bops, producing 4000 bales of
choice quality, with no lleo. This year
she will raise 0000 bales.
