INDICATE ACTIVITY IN
LOCAL HOP MARKET
Willamette Valley Growers In
Association Holding For
Willamette valley hop growers are
resting easy at present as orders for
hops are now pouring it to the offices
of the dealers in increased mimbcTs.
Buyers are freely offering 12 cents
with 13 conts for choice hong now but
the growers for the most part are hold
ing for higher prices. It is estimated
that over half of the hops grown on
the Pacific const have been sold but
few real sales ha been mado as the
greater bulk of tho Bale rcnortod have
been on contracts.
Tho orderr aro boine sent in from all
over America and from Knglnnd which
indicates that tho Pacific const hop
aro being recognized and that there
will be some movement in tho near fu
ture Tho local hop growers associa
tion, however, will consider nothing less
thnn 15 cents and the officers of the
association sltate that acceptance at
this price will depend largely upon the
tone of the market nt the 'time.
As dealers who have contracted to
buyers must make deliveries during this
montn it is expected tnat tho activity
in tho hop market will increase as the
end of the month draws closer. In
general the hop market at the present
time appears to he stronger than at
any time during the year and growers
are, 1n most cases, optimistic over the

Company Ready When Harris
krg Draw Bridge Ready
To Operate .
Just as soon as tho maoliinory for the
operation or mc uraw on tho Oregon
Klectric bridgo near Hnrrisburg is in
stalled, Kugene may expect a steamboat
service on tho Willamette river, says
tho Engoiio Hegistcr. Sevoral months
ago the government ordered the two
railway companies to place their draws
in condition for operation this winter,
ann the S. P. company already has its
bridgo ready to turn to admit the pass
ing of boats. It is expected that the
Oregon Electric will be in readiness
within two weeks..
Stenmbonts have already begun to
operate to Corvallis, and the Oregon
City Transportation company, which
operates the lino, announces that it will
send the Oregona and Pomona, light
draft 'vessels, to this city. Captain A.
B. Graham, one of the principal stock
holders of the company, made a trin
down tho river from Eugeno to Corvni-
us a tow weeks ago to view out tho I nwo to secure these contracts is ex
clinnnel and found that with the first i peeled to bring out some interesting
rise in tne river nitor the fall rains
start that boats can negotiate tho shal
low places. ,
t Attorney C. E. McGinn'ts, of this
city, was in conference with the stock
holders of the company wlillo in Port
land during the latter part of Inst
week. He said yesterday that the com
pany is rendy to begin the service to
Boat Draws 14 Inches.
Tho Oregona when launched drew
but 14 Inches of water. According to
Mr. McMinnis, the steamers will run
twice and probably three times a week.
They will carry passengers and all
kinds of freight. For several" years a
boat service has been agitated between
here and Portland About three years
ago the government sent a corps of
engineers to report on a plan to raakei
the river . navigable. Tho . plan as
worked out was to pass around the bad
and unnavlgnbln pieces of the river by
a series of canals. After careful sur
voy:of tho river they reported that tho
cost was too great to undertake tho
work at that time. The plan was based
on allowing vessels of greater draught
than these to work the river all tho
year. Hince then the boat company has
made careful scrutiny of the river and
is convinced that in its present condi
tion a good service can be given during
the winter months.
While too company has mado bo prop
osition to Kugene, it is understood that
it will ask for the building of a dock,
probably near the river bridgo, tbe
scene of the old dock whon steamer
TOPICS FOR TALKS
Superintendent Also Suggests
Rules for Assisting the .
A pamphlet for the help of the Par
ent-Teachers' associations in the rural
and village schools has just been issued
by J. A. Churchill, superintendent of
public instruction. Subjects of prac
tical vlue are suggested for the dis
cussions which include: "How to
Make Our School Standard," "Play
Apparatus," "Pictures for the School
Room," "Construction and Care of the
lluildings on the School Grounds,"
"Pure lrinking AVater," "The Hot
Lunch," and many other topics pertain
ing to the betterment of school con
ditions. These pamphlets are nv.'
ready for distribution and may be se
cured at the office of Mr. Churchill.
In the introductory letter to . the
teachers, Superintendent of Public In
struction Churchill states the purpose
of the pamphlet is to assist in the or
ganization or I'arent-Teiacliera associa
tions in order to unite more closely tho
home and the school throughout the
state. A plan for formal organization
is given, and a form of constitution, In

department of rural schools, Oregon

the Oregon Congress of Mothers, Mrs.

The county school superintendent of
Oregon have organized hundreds of
these associations during the past few
years, and there has been an urgent de
mand for list of suitable tupica of dM
cussions which will tend to make these
meetings a power for good in the re
spective communities. One of tho most
suggestive articles in tho publication
gives a number of rules, which if fol

school a most desirable place both for
children and the teachers. They are,
