"The quality of the Puget Sound bop out

growers are spoiliug the sale of their hops
by poor baring. During the past week I
have visited White river, Klkton and
numerous sections and found some grow
ers ruining the sale of their tine hops by
breaking them all up in the old-fashioned
process of bailing. They have old-fash
ioned hand presses and shovel the bops
into the press, where two men are busy
tramping them down with their feet.

large hops and spoils the sale of the Imps.

horse that was raised by John 8. Splawn
in this county, has proved a world

forty races so far, more races than were
ever won by any other horse in the
United States. His race was a half-mile
or five-eighths, in which contest he never
had a permanent equal. But he has
passed his palmiest days of victory. He
is now nearly ten years old and will not
again add a laurel to his past achieve

At the session of the city council on
Monday night, at which Mayor Prosper
presided, all members of the council
were present except Kedmon.who is east.
After the minutes were read, Mayor
Prosier directed the attention of the <x>un
cil to the fart that diphtheria or some
equally fatal scourge was reported to be
prevalent in the Cowyrhee and Natcheez
valleys ami that the |«ople of this city
were alarmed sufficiently to justify special
action of the council in the matter of
thoroughly investigating the character of
the epidemic and of quarantining the
town, if found necessary, against expos
tire to the diaease. The health officer
had already gone to the infected com
munity, but would not be »ble to return
to the city before the following day.
At the request o( the council Prs.
Hill, Morrison ami Iliv. who were pres
ent, were invited to offer their opinion, io
far as they could give it without personal
investigation, of the character of the
scourge and the bent means of guarding
against the spread of the contagion with
out unnecessary emharasmnent to the
community in a business and social way.
l>r. Hill stated that, from reports con
cerning the effect and fatality of the ilia
ease, he was forced to believe it was
diphtheria; that there was a death or so
every day; that diphtheria was more ma
lignant and fatal than any other conta
gion with which we had to contend in
this climate; that Dr. Smith, of Tacoma,
now in the city, had said that diphtheria
prevailed on the Sound, and that there
was a well-defined suspicion that it had
been communicated to the people of the
unfortunate communities on this side of
the range by hop-pickers from the west
side; that probably the best means of
protecting this community was to estab
lish a patrol on the highways between
this city and the valleys named with a
view to meeting people of the affected
district who may desire to reach town
and in that way cut olf as much direct
communication between the city ami
the seat of the scourge as possible.
Dr. Morrison was not so confident thut
that the epidemic was diphtheria, but be
lieved, as did Dr. Hill, that a thorough
investigation by good authority should be
made at once. If he found it to bo a con
tagion of any malignant typ", then quar
antine the town as nearly as possible,
Hose the schools and churches and keep
children off of the streets. Our alleys are
in bad condition, said the doctor; germs
of infection are hidden in thp fifth
allowed to rot there. Should an epidemic
get at a start here it would not be easy to
After a thorough discussion of the mat
ter the couucil obtained a promise from
Dra. Morrison and lie;.' and a conditional
one from Dr. Hill to ro up the Cowychee
on Tuesday, carefully investigate the
character of the epidemic and report the
result to an adjourned meeting of the
council on Tuesday evening.
In this connection it will be well to in
clude a report of the action of the ad
journed meeting ou Tuesday evening.
The committee of doctors reported the
disease a malignant type of diphtheria
and advised the application of precau
tiooary measures immediately. Dr. Heg
stated that they had made a thorough in
vestigation and that he and Dr. Gunn
had found seventeen cases of diphtheria.
I)rs. Rosser, Morrison, Hill, Heg and
Citinn addressed the council ou the sub
ject of quarantine necessity. They all
agreed that there were no cases of the
disease in the city. Dr. .Rosser was
directed to notify the people of the in
fected district that quarantine measures
had been applied and they must not come
into the city during the period indicated
only on permit from the board >[ health.
The council, therefore, while not estab
lishing an absolute quarantine, requested
that the school board close the schools
until the :; lli inst., one week from next
Monday. The action was taken by the
board in accordance with the request of
The report that there was a case of
diphtheria in this city was not true, no

noticeable degree of expectancy.

in connection with the complete aparutus
it is a matter for congratulation that our
school will be so well equipped—better,
perhaps, than the ordinary city of ten

memlters anxiously await the completion
of the lahratory.

Dr. Frank 0. Buckner, of Proeser, who
has been visiting in thi* city during the
past ten day* until Tuesday of this week,
was on Wednesday evening Mind on the
streets of Prossei In a dying condition,
expiring a few moments after unavailing
help had been tendered. He had just re
turned from a thirty-mile drive into the
country. Having stabled his horse, he
started toward his ollice. When crowing

cutting his face badly.
His remains were properly cared for,
pending the arrival of Coroner Taggtrd,

He had a wile ami three children in the

The wife of a well known business man
of this city departed suddenly on Tues
day morning for Port Townsend, Portland
or some other seaiiort, declaring with
unprintable emphasis that she had gone
forever, alleging that her legal spouse had
so flagrantly offended the laws of the
state and of society that she could no
loncer remain in the same municipality
with him. Serious counter-charges are
said to be possible. The llkkauj is in
vestigating the matt r, and if it be fonnd
that the charges be true on either or both
sides the public shall know the names of
these unhappy people. The social life of
husband and wife is never private when
the relations between them are so strained
at> to invite public interest and criticism,
ami it is beyond question the duty of the
press to protect society against conditions
produced by the commission of grave
offenses that tend to subvert good order
and outrage decency.
Fred Miller returned on Sunday last,

disgust, lie saw uo hope for the I'nited
Statps senate. He is quite sure it is irre
trievably past redemption. His visit at
the World's fair, however, was one un
broken series of grand pvntions. The
atmosphere of Chicago, he insists, was
filled to overflowing with merry music,
while the streets were in a similar condi
tion from the wild rush of the madding
throng. There were so many people
there that he couldn't count them and
attend to his business at the same time,
so he guetsed their number at somewhere
between seven and forty millions. "But,
seriously," said Mr. Miller, "the people
of Washington may safely look for the
greatest immigration to this state this
winter we have ever enjoyed. People are
coming to the northwest by the thousands
and there'll be no rest for real estate men
when the rush starts."
Flossie, the little daughter of It B.
