One of the best posted hop men
on the Pacific Coast in a personal
letter to the Eugene Guard writes
some interesting facts concerning
hops. He says:
"The market at London for the
past wo months for Pacifies has
remained from 26 3-4 to 28 3-4. Lat
est reports from Germany say that
markets are firmer owing to short
ness of supply, which is estimated
at 1200 bales in holder's hands.
England's supply in first hands is
estimated at two weeks for an av
erage consumption. In the United
States the unsold hops are sufficient
only for a 45 days' consumption, or
about 2300 bales. Pacifies today
are quoted in New York at 25 cents
Latest English reports show that
the crop will not be over an aver
age one, which means less than
400.000 cwt. Reports from Ger
many are not so favorable now that
hops are uneven and in some plan
tations weak. The conditions on
the rest of the continent are report
ed better. The New ' York crop
will be a fourth less than last year.
Even under the very best of con
ditions from now on the California
crop will be short.
"Herein Oregon, owing to the
ravages of lice and honey dew,
not counting the missing hills, we
fear unless the unforseen happens,
that half of the crop will never be
picked. Of course everyone can
judge for himself, but under the
circumstances those who have hops
on hand or a coming crop should
not sell for a contract for less than
30 cents a pound in my opinion.
We have some 1904 hops and a
coming crop, and under present
prospects we expect to sell every
pound at 30 cents or better.' '
"Since writing the above cable
grams tell of a terrible storm that
passed over Germany which pract
ically annilhilated the German hop
crop, and advices from New York
state that the hot wave has caused
great damage to the growing crop.
Lane county is the only county that
will produce a normal crop. Many
other counties will not have a half
crop according to present pros
