COUNTY BY JURY
Judge Rules On Questions of
Rise and Fall of Hops
During the past week there has been
a protracted trial going on at McMinn
vi lie between the firm of hop brokers,
Wigan, Richardson & CO., of London,
England, as plaintiffs, against Mr.
Clyde LaFolletto, a prominent farmer
of Wheatland, in Yamhill county.
Briefly the controversy arose out of
a hop contract made about three years
ago whereby LaFollctt agreed to sell
and deliver 30,000 pounds (if hops to
these brokers during each of the five
years then following, at the price of 14
cents per pound. The contract had the
usual provisions in- it requiring ad
vances to bo made for cultivation and
picking. No trouble arose between the
parties in 1913 because the hops then
were worth about 25 cents per pound,
but Inst year the market had gone down
nnd when it came time to deliver the
hops the agents for Wigan, Richardson
& Co., refused to accept the hops upon
the ground that they were inferior. La
Folletto contended that the hops were
prime according to contract. The brok
ers then demanded that I.aFollette
should repay to them $2,100, which they
had advanced to him during the year
1014. He refused to do this and then
tho hop brokers brought an action for
the purpose of recovering judgment
against LaFollctt for $2,100.
After tho hop brokers hnd rejected
the hops in the fall of 1014, and refused
to take them, LaFollctt sold them for
about seven cents per pound and the
money he received from this sale
gether with his advances, received from
the brokers exceeded the amount due
to him under the contract to sell at 14
cents per pound and left a balance in
his hands due to the brokers amounting
I to $104.10. The jury nf ter being out
tor a short time returned a verdict giv
ing the plaintiffs, tho brokers, the sura
One of the interesting questions
which arose in this case was the con
tention mado by the brokers that be
cause LaFollctt hnd agreed to sell them
30,000 pounds of "hops each year for
five years mentioned in the contract
and he only produced SH.000 pounds in
1014, he had mnde a breach of his con
tract and could not recover anything
But the court decided otherwise. The
judge ruled that all the farmer had to
do was to exercise reasonable skill anil
ordinary diligence in cultivating his
hop yard nnd that if after having done
so tho crop was short ami less than
the amount mentioned in the contract,
the broker would be obliged to tuke it
and pay for it.
The action was originally commenced
in Marion county, but was transferred
to the circuit court for Yamhill county.
Attorneys McNary & McNnry and
Smith & Shields of this city, represent
ed the pluintiffs and Carson & Drown
nnd Attorney Vinton, of tho firm of
Modine, Vinton & Beckett, of McMinu-,
ville, appeared for the defendants.
J. Delore, who was arrested yester
day on a charge of being intoxicated,
pleaded guilty before Judge Elgin this
morning in police court and was given
five days in the city jail.
Public service corporations desiring
a hearing in tho matter of reductions on
property valuations must appear before
tho tax commission next week as the
tax commission will hear no more peti
tions after that date. A number of the
corporations of the state have sent rep
resentatives to appear before the. tax
commission ami ask that their assess
ments bo lowered because of loss of
business nnd the competition of jitneys.

Willamette rooters and the football
team to Forest Grove, where they will
ploy Pacific university in the after
noon. Pacific has made great prepara
tions this year to beat Willamette in
the annunl gridiron battle as they have
lost in every gamo since 1908, that they
have played with Willamette. They
have a fast team this year and the
game will be an exciting one although
"Willamette will undoubtedly beat them
by a points.
A big picnic dinner will be held in
one of the college halls there at 12
o'clock, likewise supper. Miss Beryl
Holt, who has ehargo of the "eats,"
says there will be enough for all.
Tonight a big rally and yell practice
will be held in the Willamette gym, as
will also one at Pacific, to stir up eu
thnsiasm for the game.
The excursion demonstrates thnt col
lege spirit is strongly in evidence and
with such support tho local team should
literally pulverize Pacific.
