A Sad Fate. Ah wilf be seen by the
doings of the county court today A. N.
Gilbert has been ordered to the county
poor bouse for an iudeilnito period of
time. This will bo a surprlae to the
many friends of Salem's popular post
master. In fact It wbs not believed
that such a petition would have recelv-
cd favorabla action at the bauds of our
county court. Some think Dan Fry's
recent return from Washington has
Bometblug to Co with the case. Surely
if Wagner was going to be his uco hs ir
he would at least furnish free board for
Makion Count"' Coukt. In coun'
court yesterday llttlo but purely rou
tine business was transacted. The
clerk was ordered not to ilia the bill of
E. O. Small, CO centB for socks at the
county house, If the same should ever
be presented for refiling. J. E. McCoy
was awarded the contract to repair the
Dimmlck bridge over Pudding river
for $75. the lmnrovemeut to cuusiat of
a full Bet of needle beams. It Is a joint
bridge between Clackamus and Marion
counties. JohnScollard was appointed

Cmspiracy of the Pacific In-
A GIGANTIC TRUST
Seeking to Maintain Exorbitant
Bates of Insurance In Oregon.
Replying to a correspondent "Z," of
of tho Albany Herald, an Albany busi
ness man thus expresses tho methods
of the trust:
The P. I, U. h? a combination of San
Francisco stockjobbers aud manipula
tors of trusts who have secured the Pa
cific coast agency for a lot of foreign in
surance companies. They colleagued
together and called themselves the Pa
cific Insurance Union, aud began to
leyy exhorbltant rates of insurance on
property owners, aud govern the coun
try iu fire Insurance with an iron hand.
By degrees they have - become so arro-4
irant they now order city councils to
curtail or broaden Are limits, and con
struct houses according to their dic
tates. If councils fail to obey the man
dates of this arbitrary, self-constituted
set of bosses the threat Is made that all
insurance companies will be ordered,
by this compact, to cancel policies on
all property in towns refusing to bow
to this infamous trust. That they
might more certainly secure the execu
tion of their demands they say to the
insurance companies of this state "If
you refuse to do as we of Sau Francisco
demand, who have no interest In the
state of Oregon, only so far as the
money we can abstract, either fairly or
unfairly, from your state, we will at
tempt your bankruptcy by buying up
the policies which yon have out, and
with our combined strength we will
underbid your risks. When we have
driven you out of the field we will then
bleed your property owners, whom we
have hood-winked, until all the losses
we have sustained Iu destroying you
"Z" says these foreign companies
are the bone aud sinew of this country
because each of them has deposited
$50,000 lu U. S. bonds with our state
treasury. Iuded they did, because the
law compels them to do so, but they
don't pay tho state a cent of taxes ou
their deposit, and wlien they cease to
louger do business In the state they
withdraw their bonds from the state.
Now, "Z," where is the bone and
and sinew .apparent to the state of Ore
gon by the P. I. U?
It Is plainly the duty of the citizeus
of this state to put their foot ou the
perpetrators of such outrages as are be
ing ordered by the P. 1. U., aud keep
their foot thereuntil the nextmeetiug
of the legislature, when atteutiou will
bo called to it and legal euactment pro
vided for tho protection of Oregon
property owners against being held up
ou every corner by foreign moqopojists
and their pockets looted and Justice
rilled of Its power.
In proof of this, as soon as tho State
of Salem refused to be acceasorys to tho
proposed wholesale system" of apparent
confidence sharpers of San Francisco In
essaying to rob our farmers and bus!
uess men with a high hand, and kill
tho growth of our towns and cities and
to compel us to pay tribute to fore
igners, this ihsurauce trust of Sun
Francisco sent secret orders to their
losalogents, to proceed with the system
of dishonesty, in offering exorbitant
sums to those Insured lu Oregon comp
anies ii tuey would withdraw their
support from their companies nnd give
it to tuese foreigners. Tha man whn
win siaud before the tax payers of this

swindle or a set of confidence sharpers,
Is unfit to be at largo within tho border
of our state and there should bo a law
to haudle him as au accessory to.hlgh-

Hop Picking Dances.
Hop dauces are about as Important a
feature of the hop harvest time as the
picking of tho hops, aud both are at
their best Just now.
Did you ever pick hops or go to a hop
dance? Then you have missed exper
iences of which nothing can take the
place. Tho work is hard, the hours are
loug in tho field, but tho fun when tho
work Is over, and tho field has been
deserted for the day, and tho sun has
set, t fascinattug enough to make it all
up. At least that is whut thousands of
hop pickers think about it.
Most of the pickers are boarded and
lodged by their employers and ou large
farms the "hoppers' boarding houses"
are sometimes quite important struc
tures, with separate dormitories for the
men and women. On smaller farms
less carets taken with these places. All
men and women alike, are expected to
make their beds. Tbe food iu most
cases is abundant and good and iuclude
n liberal allowauce of pie. Modey nnd
fun are what they are after, and the fun
comes after supper, Then tbe dauces.
then tbe moonlight walks, then the
drives about the country In buggies
all these for the young folks who nre
inclined somewhat to sentiment, for
the men and boys who dou't want to
bo bothered with the girls there ure
wrestling matches and stories and pipes
and Bometimes a little cider for change
but not often any disreputable proceed
ings. A hop dance is a social function that
possesses its own forms of etiquette, al
though these vary with the locality.
Is it possible, by the way, that dances
of another grade were first called
"hops" because the terpslchorean fes
tivities of hop harvesters ara called
"hop dances?" Usually tbe hop dauco
is held in the barn. Tho floor is swept
clean, and the fanning mill is set out-
bide along with other agricultural im
plements that are usually stored there.
Tho light is furnished by kerosene
lamps sometimes by candles.
Sometimes dudes from town invade
the hop dance and try to monopolize
the attentions Of the prettiest girls.
When that happens look out for storm.
It won't do, however, to assume that
it is always the dudes who get the
worst of it, although, -that is usually
the result of a contest between them
and the pickers, owing in some meas
ure possibly to the superior numbers of
the pickers who generally stick to each
Hop picking Is a healthful employ
ment, and many persous eugage in it
for a season or two simply as a recu
perative measure. As manual labor
goes It pays well, aud there are prob
ab y lu every hop raising neighborhood
whole families who earn almost all the
money tuey expend during the entire
twelve mouths, at hop pieklug time.
The county court today ordered A.N.
Gilbert, of Macleay, nnd James Powell,

greatest fact in connection with
