BInghnm opened tho ensu to tho conirt for Lachmund & Co.t and Anderson M. Cannon closed tho arguments for plaintiffs. Somplos of tho liopa rojootcd woro not pro ducod In court. Tho contract calls for tho dellvory of 40,000 pounds of hops, "bright, oven color, fully maturod, froo, from mould or vormlh damage, oloanly picked, properly dried and cured," otc. Hop growors and buyors wero in troduced as witnesses nnd sworo that very few hops woro grown up to the contract standard. Hops practically freo from mould wero bucIi as woro usually called cholco browing hops. Tho Portland Chlneso millionaire, Sold Bnck, put up $3700 to make tho crop, and holds n mortgage on it, and Jiudgo McGinn nppoarod for him to recover picking money. Among Glnn's perorations was this: "Tho mon and women got their monoy. Not ono went away ompty-handod. I wish wo had more mon llko Sold Back running our banks at Portland. Wo would stand somo show to got our money." Ho quotod from Roosevelt's mes sage: "Tho time Is coming, is now here, when wo have got to shackle cunning as tlwy did of old, when thoy shackled violence." He rung In Pennoyor and it was ono of Mr. McGinn's greatest effort, and a large audience was prosont. Mj Cannon'g Reply. "Tho mountain has labored and brought forth a mouse," said Mr. Cannon. Ho had hoard Mr. McGinn boforo raiso evory hair on tho heads of a Jury, and then wen the Jury como back in two minutes with verdict against him. In tho case of Livesloy & Co. vr. Johnson, Wolff & Son had butted in nnd lost out on a similar contract Seld Rack had been notified that the contract was in existence, and hie rights woro subordinate thereto. They had advanced monoy all the defendants Oliver Beers and Lope Sing as-prlnclpals subject to a con trad and a chattle mortgage, and that thoy could not get around. Lach mund. for Horst & Co., had agreed to advance $2400 "during the pick ing season." Mr. Cannon also grew eloquent .and said while McGinn went to sa on the waves of hia own elo quence, he would be shattered In tho breakers when he was brought back to land. SUvertoii School Burned.

ASSEMBLED ENGLAND .MAY MAINTAIN NEUTRALITY OR All) THE JAPS. (United Press Loosed Wire.) Washington, Feb. G. -A ipoclnl to tho Portland Journal snys: What Is considered by oven tho most con servative obsorvors of international politics nH n most omlnlous portont for tho continuance of tho poaccfu! rblntlons existing nt present between tho United 'States nnd Japan is thw attltudo of tho British ndmlrnllty. From thWeoent activity in British naval circles thoro la nppnrent'y no doubt In the minds of tho ndmlrnllty that war bctwocn tho Unltod State nnd Jnpan is oertaln to come, nnd in tho nonr future. Hore Is what tho English nro doing to propnro for tho shock. Tho British North Paofllc squadron is to bo Incronsod. Tho fourth cnuiR- or squadron, consisting of Crossy, Eurylus, Hogue, Brilliant and the Indofatigablo, six crulsora of tho county class, will bo added to tho fleet now operating out of Esquimau. Esquimau Is boing hurriodly pre parod for tho sudden demand upon it as a naval bnso of tho first caliber. Preparations nro being mado to accommodate a greatly onlargod numbor of troops at that point. So sinister is this movo regard od nt Washington that a Bpoalnl confer ence was held today betwoon Presi dent Roosovolt nnd the Domoorntlo momberfi of tho naval committee from the house. Tho mobilization of the British North Pacific squadron was tho siibjoot undor d-lsoussion. The Prosldent, it is snid, wished to be assured that he will , havo no Democratic opposition to his deslro to havo the naval appropriation In creased to $09,000,000, In order that a numbor of now battleships may bo ordered at once. In ease of a groat naval war be tween tho United States and Jnpan, England, both in the light of a pos sible ally of Japan and as tho next most interested nation with the near est coast line In the war zone, feels that It should be prepared for any eventuality. .
