An Expensive Break. Some time Sunday night or Monday morning somo ono broke the 31E6 plate glass of the Liberty street show window of Luun and Brooks' drug store. Johnnie Brooks says ho will give tho best 25 cent cigar tho house affords, to tho guilty fellow who will nut In an aonearence and acknowl edge breaking tho glass. It is dim- cult to determine from tho nature of tho hreak how the same was caused.

AMONG THE HOP PICKERS. Present Rainy Weather Not Harmful to the Hops. 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 weather continues. 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 noue of the product has been dis covered to be Injured by lice. Tho wages paid pickers Is 35 cents a box 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 receive whatever price ruled In neigh boring yards. -- AT THE COURT HOUSE. Tax Roll Will Be Closed Tonight Other News. The will of Benjamin Tucker has been admitted to probate. The estate s valued at 82,000. To Jennie Van nuys, 23 acres of land Is bequeathed and 12 acres to J. E Lewis. The re mainder of the estate is divided equally between Richard Tucker und B. F.Tucker, who arc made executors. The scalp business Is evidently on tho decrease. Only ono package of scalps was presented at the clerks of fice previous to 2 o'clock this after noon, for which a warrant was drawn In favor of Fred Jackson for 82.75. Monday Sheriff F. T. Wrightman issued over 200 tax receipts represent ing over 87000 that had been recelyed during the day. The amount received 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 tux roll tonight as was previously lrj tended. The roll will be kept open until Wednesday evening at least, and possibly longer. It would not appear fair to close the taxroll when tho taxpayers arc responding so read ily as they have been In the past two days, Mrs, Am.ie Eldridge Dead. The sad news has been received that Mrs. Annie Eldridge, relict of the late F. E. Eldridge, and of an old family on French prairie, was dead. Tho remains arrived atGervals on tho overland Monday morning. Death was sudden and occurred at Sodaville or thereabouts, and was caused by blood poisoning, pSlie was a sister of Mrs. D. F.

ASSAULTED The Editor of The Journal Invited to the State Treasuier's Of-ficc-What Took Place. Tho Journal's problngsof tho mis conduct In tho State Treasurer's oN flce has bjrnc fruit 1 1 revealing to tha ; public the true character of the pre j siding genius-Major Hodgkln, nnd lb IS lioyuu WJC (I 'Uiiu "in iJaiuuu 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 Statesman: 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 hold mvseir." 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. No one knows tho real purpose for which such a person as Hodgkln is kept at tho State Treasury, no haR long made a nuisance of himself, by grasping at everything Insight In tho public service while really serving the sharks who compose the State Treas ury ring. Information that the editor or tills paper is to bo "dono up" by any ono. in tho State Treasury, is spurned with contempt. Twenty years in the newspaper business convinces us that people who talk or dol.ig such things are harmless. m WHEAT MARKET. Portland, Aug. 31.
