Something About the Hop Industry —fi-ult Oop Short, But There Will Be Enough. PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 14, 1899.— To the Editor: Thinking that a few lines from a faraway country might not be unwelcome, I will write that my UPPER DBS MOINES be sent to me here, and write also, perhaps, a bit of news. I will any flrst the weather is flne, for so many seem to think it ruins here most of the time. It has ruined perhaps more this summer than usual, yet the web has not precuptibly grown between my toes. The harvest promised well, but In the midst of harvest we had several days rain, and as few stack grain— or when thrushud have a bin or place to put it in—but simply shock the grain, often in a loose careless way, and leave the grain sacked In great piles in the fields, the lattur especially in eastern Oregon, great fears entertained about the grain being hurt. However, the grain has been little hurt. Then the hop yards were supposed to be ruined. Wo learn mold shows a little in some yards, but really the rains have done the yards good in some localities, and just draw hundreds of people from our city, and some of the idjacent villages are nearly dopopu- ated. The occupants, whole families, foing and now in the hop yards piok- ng hops. They take tents and camp out, have a good outing and at the same time make fair wages. An ordinary picker will average three boxes a it 40 cents a box. Some pick eight joxes readily per day, a box holding nine bushels. It is lively work but .hey have flne jolly times at It. The u>p business Is a large one in the Wlllammette Valley. Then the teazel larvest has been on for the past four weeks , but this is a small Industry yet t employs many hands. It is grown and cultivated like corn in row. The second year is harvested. The teazels ire a pear shaped looking bur, full of look like prickers and are used In wol- "en mills for fulling cloth. Many •alsed In this valley are sent to New York from there all over the country and to England. We have an under crop of all fruits this ye*ar. This rare- y happens. Oregon fruit Is usually ibundant, but spring conditions were >ad. However there will be a great )lenty for home use, not much for ship- nent. Large shipments of grain, meat, lour, feed, paper, machinery, etc., are sent to the Orient from here, the largest sea-going vessels coming to Port- and harbor and discharging great mi-goes and reloading and returning. On almost every vessel from the Orient are Japs and Chinese who pass a rigid examination before landing, and some are not permitted to land. Then the Alaska steamers bring some curious hings and leave for our inspection. Such as "Totem Poles," Alaskan dogs, etc. So that our city and its harbor are continual sources of interest to the student and curious. Our climate Is Ine, yet an overcoat feels good and um- >rellas in winter are indispensable. ! would not want to return to Iowa to ive, but after all ray observation on this coast, I am ready to say, that if a man has health strength and not be- >ond 40 years of age and digging for a Iving, I would say stay in Iowa. I believe that a young man's chances are >etter there than here now, If a man las means enough to live, or nearly so vithout hard digging, a fair compe- ;ence, and wants to live as easy and as ong as he can, then I say come to the coast. A man can live as cheap here as .hero, and has less to resist in climate n the way of extremes. I am satisfied. Our latch string is out for Algonlans md there might be a bit of Chinook almon In the pot, sturgeon orhalibutt, ried Razor olams are not bad, and clam chowder Is always good. Yours, ' JAMES BARR.

Now Dolliver has not been doing much of that in late years. He has been making hay right at home, talking to just as many Iowa people and learning their names and kissing their babies as he could. And that's why, in any county in the state, there are a lot of republicans thai would like to see the time come when they can do Dolliver a turn. He has been making friends with a diligence that suggests that some day he is likely to make trouble in a senatorial contest. THE BUFFALO BILL SHOW, Comes Tomorrow-Some of the features of the Entertainment. The men, volunteers and regulars, who went up the hills at Santiago with Gens.

Cody's visit here. As Mr. Marshall says, "Tom Tsbel saw a Spaniard and cheerfully killed him, an example which wasfollowedby more than one of his comrades. Before seven shots were fired Capt. Capron was killed, probably within five minutes." Others who will appear in this historic drama' areSergt. Jerald A. Webb, Walter A. Cook, and many well-known participants in the fight which they so graphically reproduce.
