cult to determine from tho nature of

It is not known whether a bicyclist
fell against tho plate glass or whether
the break was caused by the discharg

AMONG THE HOP PICKERS.
Present Rainy Weather Not Harmful to
It Is tho opinion of local buyers,
generally, that the weather of the
past forty-eight hours has not dam
aged the hop crop In the least. While
It Is very unpleasant to the pickers, a
largo majority of whom go to tho
yards wholly unprepared for rain, yet
the grower need not feel tho least ex
ercised over the possibility of any
damage to the hops, while the present
The electrical storm of Sunday
evening had Its beneficial results. On
Mond?y morning the ground in the
yards in tho vicinity of Salem were
covered with dead lice. This Is at-,
trlbutcdasa result of the lightning
on the evening before.
F. Levy, or the firm or Herren &
Levy was seen this morning and said
that tho present cool, rainy weather
could prevail "or four or live days
without damaging the hop crop In the
least. It would only prevent picking
for that length of time, which In
some yards would bo beneficial as the
crop has not yet properly matured.
Mr. Levy prefers a hop slightly
molded, to one prematurely har
vested. The principal danger now is
from irregular weather. Should the
weather be showery interspersed with
real warm weather, mold will appear.
About 50 hop pickers a ro employed
in the yard of D. A. Osburn, across
the Willamette from (,'orvallis, and
the hops are reported to be or extra
line quality. In the picking so far

A strike for an Increase above 35 cents
a box in the pay was started by the
pickers Thursday afternoon, but the
matter was speedily compromised
without any advance, beyond the
agreement that the pickers should

equally between Richard Tucker und

In taxes today promises to surpass
that of yestdrday. From the fact that
the taxpayers are responding to the
notices recently sent out notifying
them of the amount of their taxes,
Sheriff Wrightman will not close the

The Editor of The Journal
Invited to the State Treasuier's Of-ficc-What

dragging his name before them at this
time. The Assistant State Treasurer
has written his own account in his
own elegant lauguage (In the news
paper he controls at Salem) of his own
disgraceful conduct, which had better
have been uumcntloned. No one would
have noticed his performance, but as
lie 'is inclined to be boastful he will be
given all the publicity which his or
ticlal position alone entitles him to re
ceive. The rufllanly assistant state treas
urer has written his own statements
aud says: "Yesterday the great friend
of the people entered the capltol on a
smelling tour." The following note
will explain why any call was neces
sary at the state treasury:
State of Oregon, Treasury Depart
ment. Salem, August 30, 1897.
Mr. E. Ilorer, Salem Or:
Dear Siu: Mrs. nodgkin and niy
seir availed ourselves or the privilege
or calling at your residence, Saturday
evening, but did not liud you at home.
Will joti, when you visit the state
house today, kindly call at the treas
urer's olllce, and very greatly oblige,
Yours very truly,
FANk E. Hodgkin.
Major Hodgkln, who is a member of
the Episcopal church and a trustee or
the Salem Y. M. C. A. besides, having
sucked the public teat ror twenty
years admits that 0" sooner than tho
editor had entered the treasury "he
heard himself abused us never man
was abased before."
This was a novol experience In a
public ofilce, where the abused man
had been invited lu a polite manner
conncftcd with a social call from ono
hitherto considered a Christian gen
tleman and his wife, who Is a lady en
titled to the highest respect. The
abuse consisted in denunciations jQ a
loud tone of voice of The Journal's
criticisms of a public official, of the
vilest billingsgate, and profanity such
as made the state capltol ring from
basement to dome and which would
have edified St. Paul's church, the
Salem Y. M. C. A. and the people of
Oregon to have heard It..
The situation wis growing inter
esting and we must give Mayor Hodg
kin's own words for it from the
When the speaker tired of hurling
abuse at a being In which sufficient
manhood could not be found to resent
anything that was said to him, no
matter how ylle,dnd when that same
speaker, for the sake of diversion,
started to walic around the table to
ward IJofcr, the lator In dospair, (a cur
driven into a corner will light, It Is
said) picked up a volume lying on the
table, said to have been a book of in
structions "How to Hold up the Leg
islature" belonging to the governor,
and hurled It at his assailant's feet.
Then the two came together for a
moment, but only for a moment, for
they were quickly separated. It Is
said that when Horer found that a
conflict was inevitable, lie yelled:
"We'll fight, ir some one does not
stop us. Somebody hold him, I'll
The editor of The Journal makes
no pretension to being a fighting
man. He avoids armed conflict and
only defends himself when absolutely
necessary and only In self-defense.
Major flodgkln Is welcqme to all tho
glory he can get out of conduct that
stamps one as a man without breed
ing, an official without any sense of
what he owes tho public and a bully
who would not stand five minutes In
an encounter requiring real courage
But his courage or personal matters
cut no figure in tho matter that is
really involved, nis claim Is that
The Journal insulted his wife by
saying that she was soliciting insur
ance for the nodgkln's agency at ths
state treasurer's office. The Jour
nal carefully avoided mention or the
lady's name In connection with the
practice complained or by citizens and
Insurance people of this city.' And ir
The Journal had named the lady
as soliciting insurance It could hays
been no insult, because it is an honor
able occupation. Several single ladles
of this city, Bomo with families to
provide for, and no husband In an of
flcial position drawing a fat salary,
are always glad to have the fact men
tioned that they do solicit insurance,
and there is nothing wrong about It.
They nJ their children have a right
to bo protected against all grasp
ing, avaricious over-reaching pu
lio officials, and Major Hodg
kins pleading tho baby act for
publlo sympathy and to conceal tho
real ls-uo under tho false pretense
that a newspaper has Insulted his
wife, will not deter us from exposing
nH such abuse of publlo office, and im
proper and illegitimate Interference
by the treasury department wth thp
legitimate business people ot this city.
It Is an outrago on the people In
sured as well as the Insurance people
that Major Hodgkln leaves his sal
aried office and adjusts losses for Insu
rance companies as ho has done. To
enter the local field and canvass ror
policies, by blmsoir or his wire, shows
that ho does not know his official duty
and has no respect ror the rights or
private citizens, whoso taxes have
kept him from tho stablo yards, or
somo place which ho Is better fitted
to occupy than the state treasury.
Talk of horse-whipping an editor be
causo he docs his duty to tho public In
such a matter ho ought to bo
whipped if ho don't do it.
Tho Journal has exposed all sucu
pratices that have como to Its notice
and will probably continuo to do so.

which such a person as Hodgkln is
kept at tho State Treasury, no haR
