BREWERS HOiO OFF
Hop Market Is Quiet, But by
No Means Weak.
MOST GROWERS CONFIDENT
Real Reason .for the Sale of the
Moxee Crop and the Effect It
Has Produced In the
The statement repeatedly made by liop bears
these days that the market Is "weak. Is sot
juetlfled by actual conditions. The market Is
not weak, though it is very quiet. So tar
as the undertone is concerned, it may truth
fully be said that hops are as firm as at any
time this season. However, It mst be ac
knowledged that appearances are 'somewhat
against the market, and should the deadlock
continue much longer, the situation might
become critical. As during other lulls In the
trade, the key of the whole matter Is In the
hands of growers and other holders. Should
they become weak-kneed and let go In a bunch.
there would be but one result, a slump In
prices. If they hold their nerve and stand firm.
It Is difficult to believe they will not win In
the end. Men who have made the hop market
their life study have Invested heavily In this
year's crop, and these keen speculators are
Seeling no uneasiness. The faith of these men
and the fact that brewers stand ready to
buy close under the prevailing prices is having
effect in keeping up the views of the great body
The waiting policy on the part of Eastern
consumers naa been influenced largely, no
doubt, by some neavy sales made recently
in this section, particularly the disposal of the
Moxee hops, raised In the Taklma Valley,
The real reason for this- sale is not under
stood in the Eaet, and the price, said to be
28k cents, gave a false idea of the position
of "Western growers. The sale of the lot.
1100 bales, according to a .well-posted an
thorlty, was brought about by the fact that
San Xiesh, manager of the company, had
personal interest In the crop in addition to
the salary he got. Ho is to go out on De
cember L and he wanted to clean up. Natu
rally he felt that he could better afford to
accept present prices rather than wait upon
a new manager's whim. The reason for
Lesh's sell-out is generally understood by
"Washington hopmen, and is not likely to
have much effect on growers in that state.
but it has evidently caused an impression to
spread In the East that there Is a feeling of
weakness on this Coast, which la not a fact.
The Moxee hops were bought by Herman
jUaber and Isaac Plncus & Son, of Tacoma,
and, according to a report current yesterday.
they rejected the entire lot as not up to "the
The few local dealers who have orders are
trying their best to fill them with hops se
cured from other dealers, as they find It
nearly Impossible to Interest farmers. The
only transaction reported yesterday. Involving
hops from first hands, waa the purchase of
the Knott lot of 91 bales, grown near Oregon
City, which Julius "Wolf secured at 30 cents.
The few transactions that took place between
dealers were at 30V4 to 31V4 cents. .
The cause of the absenct of foreign orders,
which has been worrying some of the 'exporters
for the last three- days, was explained In a
cable received last night, saying: "Too foggy
to examine samples." This was good news for
the shippers, who had begun to fear that they
had been abandoned, and they look for good
orders within the next day or two. The cause
of the dullness of the export market was thus
satisfactorily explained, and the cable message
went a long way to strengthen the situation.
No change In the Eastern situation Is shown
by the latest mail advices from New Tork,
No new developments were reported up the
state. Offerings continued light, due to the
small remaining stocks In growers hands, and
they held for extreme prices. Locally, the
market was firm but quiet at unchanged prices,
The following shows the movement of hops

NEW TORK. Nov. 17. Stocks had their ups
and downs today, but the ups succeeded the
downs, and so far outran tUem as to leave
the day's changes decisively on the side
of gains. The later tone of the market be
came aggressively strong and the market
broadentd out. The weakness was rather
acute at the opening and forced prices lower
even than the equivalent of the ruling prices
In London. The recovery of the opening losses
was pretty complete during the first hour.
The market was only gradually awakened
after that from Its waiting attitude, the re

stock, the general list hanging dull about last
Amalgamated Copper was the feature of the
day. This stock, considering the history of
some of Its past movements, has advanced
rather soberly In the recent market, measur
ing its pace, apparently, by the continuous
rise In the 'price of copper. Today's reports
from the copper market pointed to the first
reactionary tendency perceptible for many
days, but this did. not discourage the buying
of Amalgamated Copper In company with
the buoyancy of copper shares all over the
world. After rising through 80 the stock rose
with added facility and seemed to uncover
stop orders on the bear side. The close was
feverish and Irregular, In spite of union pa
