Every effort WiB made to aave itfhe men, and all who were In the -water ait tine time of the ar rival of tihe Alarm were picked up and taicen ashore.

Interesting Items Culled from Oregon's Leading Newspapers. "Oregon la becoming renowned! for stage robberies, and our reputation. In this Hue Is very unenviable. In south ern Oregon there have be3i several, and recently there have been two within a few miles of Oregon City. Not much booty has 'been secured by these high waymen; but It makes one nervous to mount a stage coach when he ha rvason to fear that he will be ordered to dis mount before the journey Is ended at the muKlo of a revolver. This mcuns ot trtvel Is becoming very unpopular in the Willamette valley, although It appears perfectly safe In Kastern Oregon, as there have been no "hold-ups", to chronicle In the wild, unsettled and uncivilized portion of the state- ea.it of the Cascade mountains for several years. It may be that those who travel on stages In the Inland Empire go prepired for such emergencies, and it Is believed that they would accoid road agents suon a rectp tlon that they would give up their calling after the Hist trial, These western Ore gon stage rohbeTs appear to be successful In stopping the vehicle and making the psnaciwrs give up what little coin they have; but their "hauls" so far have bten of such meagre amounts that Dick Tur pin or any of the old school of profes sionals, would feel themselves disgracea to pocket the sum. In the old days the business of the highwayman was very lu crative, but It has sadly deteriorated. Kliher those who follow It have lost the ant of ascertaining twheiV rich passen gers are on board, or those who travel during these democratic times have little coin to take with them." Times Moun taineer. "There will be a scarcity of pickers this year," says a valley exchange, "and the hop men will gladly take pickers of all rutlonulKles; but the feeling among them la strongly In favor of families, as the young men are thin more under control, and not so unruly. Hops will be picked more cleanly this year. Heretofore It has been that plck rs have allowed leaves nd stems to get Into the box among the hp, -nd the box would bo pined. But Then a bale of this kind Is sampled by the buyer It means a much lower figure for the hop man than If he hid insisted on clean picking. Hops this year will will probably bring from 13 10 cents, Which Is better price tharr last season, when the highxt price was ? cents. But a great many of the English brewers took advantage of last year's low prices to buy heavily, and from '40.000 to S0.0UO more bales thin usual went to England. So you see the browers are pretty well stacked up, and unless the price is low nought to suit them they will not be obliged to buy heavily. Some of the yards this season-, owing partly to the scarcity of poles, have strung wires from pole to pole, along which the hops are allowed to grow,, but it was merely a measure of expediency, and scarcely one fifth of the yards are wired. One thing thing that a great many hop men have learned, which will be of value to them this season, Is the Importance of having an expert dryer. Last year some of the men who were harvesting their first crop attempted to dry the hops themselves, but it was not a complete success, and they are considerably wiser this year."' An exchange says: "Harry MJtchoil anil Petter SVenBon having closed a successful season fishing i the Columbia, atart:a home M'cwikiay, August 6, in Itheir fishing boat.

They ex pect to continue their trip across the mountains ar.d through some of the sage brush pialns of Eastern Orgyn, and will return either by the Santiam route or by way of the Des Chutes river over the mountains, down the middle fork of the Willamett' to Eugene, returning home through the grain growing section and hop fields of Oregon.
