SIGNAL CORPS PRACTICE.
JIT WILL TAKE PLACE ON SUN DAY MORNING. An Extensive Program Laid Out foe That Day by Captain Hewes. The members of the Signal Corps will have an opportunity to do some good Work if the weather is clear enough to permit it on Sunday morning and to demonstrate whether they can with the heliograph give points to the telephone and telegraph in sending and receiving messages. The following letter received by Lieu tenant Harvey of the Signal Corps here from Captain Hewes at San Francisco will explain the arrangements made for a tripartite contest: San Francisco, Cal, Nov. 14th. Lieutenant Edward Harvey, Com manding Third Brigade Signal Corps, Sacramento, Cal.—Sir: I have ar ranged for a "field day" for my com mand on Sunday, November l!)th, and with the co-operation of your corps, Will carry out the following program: I have requested the Major General (General Dickinson) to send some offi cial messages to the Adjutant General (General Seamans), from Division Headquarters, to the Adjutant Gener al's office in your city. Both of the said named officers have signified their will ingness to assist us, and the following plan, I have made, and hope it will meet with your assistance and concur rence. When the messages are given me, I will at once have a detail of men sig nal them to the telegraph station of the Southern Pacific Company at the Palace Hotel, where I will have an operator in attendance, who will wire it to Sacramento. I have arranged with J. B. Wright, Division Superin tendent, at the office in Sacramento to have his Mr. Banvard on hand. If you will have a signal-man or operator at that office to receive it, and transmit it by Hag or otherwise (the quickest way) to General Seamans at his office. At the same time I will have the message sent to Telegraph Hill, whence it -will be sent by heliograph to Mt. Diablo, and thence to a squad of your men on the Capitol building. At the same time I will have one of my men telephone to one of your men at the Adjutant General's office. This will be a sort of race to see "which will be the first to arrive. And if for any cause, one or two methods should fail, the other will surely be sent through. This will be excellent practice for us all, and I hope you can carry it out. General Dickinson will be in his of ce at 9 o'clock Sunday morning next to send the messages, and I have been assured by General Seamans that he will be in his office at the same time, or have his representative there. The squad on Mt. Diablo will be on station at S a. m., ready to talk with you. and keep open communication, if the wea ther permits, until the official messages start. There may be some answers to be delivered in the same manner, so Wffl you see that your men detailed to the different posts, attend to them ex clusively? I shall personally be at Di vision Headquarters and would sug gest that you be at the Adjutant Gen eral's office that we may better direct the sending of messages. I will tele phone direct from Division Headquar ters, telephone No. Main 852, to the Adjutant General's office, telephone No. Main 212. In this way you and I will be in direct communication. I shall di rect my men to remain on station until 1 o clock, if communication is not com pleted before that time, rain or shine Please let me hear from you direct Immediately upon receipt of this so that I may arrange transportation for my Diablo squad. As soon as this work is over on Sun day, if you will render me a report of the work done and location of stations opened and number of men on station* I Will embody it in my report, and will forward it to the Adjutant General through channels, and also send you a report of the work done by my men so that we may use it for future guidance. Kindly caution your men at each sta tion to keep a complete record of every letter sent or received. I find this is a great benefit in case of misunder standings. I shall direct my men to ■end all messages in a strictly military manner, including the checks etc I hope you will be agreeable to this plan, and that you will advise me at once upon receipt of this letter of your Plans. If everything is not clearly stated above. I will have time to send you any desired information before Sunday, but will not be able, I fear to get another reply from you. My mail address is 48 Fremont street, and tele phone there is Main 237. lam always at the office between 4:30 and 5 p rh ■*» in the a. m. between !> and • »:.iO.

Moffett, was concluded in the City Justice's Court yesterday morning, and the defendant was dis charged. At Wednesday's session of the court, 'J. Bloomberg, the second-hand dealer, j testified that he bought the gun from ! Burns between dusk and 8 o'clock on i the evening of Tuesday, November 7th. | Eugene McCaffrey, Edwin Heilbion, Albert Foust, James Mitchell and ; James McGushen. testified that they j had been with Burns from 0 until 8 I o'clock on the evening when the alleged I sale testified to by Bloomberg was j made. They were part of the crowd of ' young fellows who nightly congregate ;at or near Ninth and Q streets, and ; were there on the evening in question. ! Hugh H. Haggerty testified that from 2 o'clock in the afternoon until 10 at niprht, he had been with Burns con stantly, except for about a quarter of an hour between 4 and 4:30 o'clock, : when Burns went to Armory Hall to I vote. He and Burns, he said, had had i several drinks that day, but as they 1 were obliged to go into back doors of ; saloons to get them, he did not know ! who conducted the places. | Burns on his own behalf, testified ] that he had not been in Washington, ! Yolo County (where Mr. Moffett lives), for three weeks. He raid he had never been in Bloomberg's place in his life, and only knew the second-hand man by sight. He had never done any bus iness with him. Justice Anderson said that while : there were a number of suspicious | features about the case, he would be I obliged to give the defendant the ben j efit of the doubt and discharge him, j which he accordingly did.

THE KJSCOKD-UJSIOJS, SACRAMENTO, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1899. TOO MANY HOPS. Prices Will Consequently he Low This Year. M. H. 'Durst, the London hop dealer, who has been sending crop reports to the "Record-Union" during the pres ent season, commenting on the complete report as published in the London I "Times," says: The 1899 English hop crop is a phe nomenal one, both as regards gross yield and yield per acre. The crop this season is 304,829 cwts. of 112 pounds (about 200.000 American bales) more than the yield in 1898. In 1898 England imported 109,000 bales of American hops. The excess grown here over the crop of last year is nearly double the number of cwts. Imported from America last year. And last year's imports were the largest on record for years. These statistics af ford cold comfort to the American hop grower. Every one can compute for himself the piospect of prices for Amer ican hops. The outlook is uncertain, and on the whole unsatisfactory. 1 , doubt if any one is in a position to give i the American grower any advice that i will be satisfactory. All I can say is j that hops will be cheap, and the grower who sells his hops at a living price this ! year will be fortunate. Growers who I have a really "gilt edge" hop can rea | sonably expect a good market by and | by. But to-day no American hops will j command the attention of English buyers. My advice to growers is two fold: Don't refuse any good offers and don't consign hops to this market. Con signed hops will sell at prices that are sure to be unsatisfactory. There are too many English hops here for Ameri can hops to bring paying prices, and it is only right that the American grower should know the position of things over here. English growers are getting very unsatisfactory prices, and the lower brewers find they can buy the cheaper they want the hops. The American ci>op can be absorbed at home to much better eventual advantage to the grower than if consigned to London. THE ORTH CASE. Judge Hart Takes Two Motions Under Advisement. When the case of W. I. Orth against the National Bank of D. O. Mills & Co. was called in the Superior Court yesterday, L. T. Hatfield, of counsel for the bank, asked for an order of court to take the deposition on interro gations of the attorney of the Board of Trade of San Francisco, in relation to some matters in the case. Hiram W. Johnson of counsel for Orth. objected and said it was beyond the jurisdiction of the court to order the deposition taken without allowing the plaintiff an opportunity to cross-exam ine the affiant. It had been decided, only a week ago by Judge Ellison, that due notice should be given, N in order not to prejudice the right of the onpo site party. Judge Hart took the matter under advisement, saying that he was sat isfied that the plaintiff had a right to be present when the affidavit was taken and the court could not depr:va him of that right. If the order was granted, he thought the case should be continued. In the afternoon, the plaintiff having closed his case, Attorney Hatfield moved for a nonsuit and the question was argued by the attorneys on both sides, after which Judge Hart took the matter under advisement, the question being whether the defendant having admitted that security had been given for the note at the time it was made, the burden of proof did not lie with it to show that a change had been made at a subsequent date. Court was adjourned until thig morn ing. A HIGH-PRICED BARBER. A Returned Klondiker Kicks at His Prices. John Seholefield of Florin, who is a juror in the Orth case, told Under Sheriff Reese a tale yesterday of how he went into a barber shop in the In ternational Hotel building for a shave. He noticed the prices on the sign and concluded they were cheap and after being shaved, in response to questions by the barber, assented to having his hair cut. shampooed and singed like wise. He stated that on leaving the chair the barber informed him that his bill was $1.85. He demurred, saying that he would pay the scheduled prices, amounting to 50 cents, but was in formed that that would not go and that he would have to pay the price charged. As he still refused, one barber went outside, he said, and held the door, while the other placed himself in front of it. Seholefield, who ig a husky fellow himself, brushed the first man aside and up against the wall, he says, and jerking open the door walked out and told the pair to call a policeman if they wished. They did not do so and he paid the 50 cents and departed. He says that, in all hig travels in the Klondike, he never ran up against quite so high prices. DEATH OF GEORGE H. RICHIE. An Old Time Citizen Passes to the Other Side. George H. Richie, one of the oldest and best known citizens of Sacramento, died yesterday at his home, 1»12 Elev- I enth street, after a long illness. George H. Richie came to California when the State was young, and after trying his luck in the mines embarked in the butcher business in Georgetown, El Dorado County. He lived in George town a number of years and then came to Sacramento. For a number of years he was engaged in farming in Sutter ; County, and at one time owned a half. i section of land there, jointly with Sen ; ator Fred Cox. Mr. Cox bought Richie out about thirteen years ago. after which the latter retired from business and spent the remainder of his) years at his home in this city. He had many warm friends and sustained a high character for integrity and trustworthiness. The deceased was 71 years old and a native of Ohio. His wife survives him. Yesterday's Weather.
