EXPECT TO BREAK MARKET
General Early Selling That Would
Cause Demoralization of Prices
"Would Enablo Them to
- Cover Their Orders.
The roation foremost In the mind of
the OroBn hepgrower at this, time, in the
lntorvals of his harvesting operations, is
whether or not to sell his crop as soon
as it is ready for market. Will he take
advantage of the opening price offered,
or hold off for a month or two and
then accept a higher or a lower figure?
All depends In the farmer's view on the
future course of the market. While he
cannot, of course, forecast October and
November prices, he can plainly see the
rift of things from the steps taken by
the short-sold bears to control the open
ing of the market. All the efforts made
y thee dealers are directed toward
causing a stampede of growers. With
such a panic once under way, the bears
will have the market where they want
If even hopgrowor of Oregon, Washing
ton and California were to offer his hops
s soon as they are in marketable con
dition, what would be the result? Some
bales would be dumped simultane
ously on the market and where would
Tne bears make no secret of their efforts
to Induce early selling, as the circulars
they have mailed to the growers show.
OiM of these circulars, signed "An East
ern Brewer," concludes as follows:
Gives Advice Anonymously.
"As to the new crop, pick dry and bale
into a carefully as possible and then
give legitimate buyers samples and sell
your hops at whatever the market may
he nnd make a firm resolve that you will
nover get in your present position again,
hut will sell every year during the months
of September, "October or November,
-whether hops arc high or low at that
time. In the hop business It Is an old
and true maxim as to the selling of hops
that the "early bird catches the worm."
Another anonymous circular, purport
ing to come from "A True Friend of the
"The Washington, California and New
York grower? will sell early, while pres
ent indications are that the Oregon growth-
wttt wait until the last minute, as
they . have done on their ISM hops, but
Oregon growers .cannot affect the market
wen If they hold, as was proven in the
fight of KMM. Why will Oregon growers
wait? Because they are the only grow
ers that are being fooled about the crop
Growers Well Informed.
Are the Oregon growers being fooled
about the crop conditions? That de
pends on where they get their informa
tion. There may be some farmers
in the state whore only source of Infor
mation is these circular spread broad
cast by the bearish dealers, but It is pre
Humed that nearly every hopman in Ore
gon is a reader of The Oregonlan. That
the crop news published In this paper is
reliable requires no proof. The Oregonlan
correunondents in the Valley towns are
known to all the growers In their neigh
borhood as responsible men. The corre
spondents of the Oregon Weather Bureau,
working under the direction of District
Forecast Official Beats, are also reliable.

reau's bulletin, which have been reprint
ed. Extracts by the score from New
York telegrams and letters from widely
known dealers and growers of that state
have been published and every one of
them have been substantiated by such
New York papers as the Watervllle
Times, Cobblesklll Index, Schoharie Dem
ocrat and Cooperstown Farmer. Extracts
from the Kenltsh Observer, published in
the heart of the English hop-growing
dtstrlct. have also been printed to show
the exact conditions existing in that coun
try. So much for the accuracy of The
Oregontan's crop report.
Dealers Desire Early Selling.
The object of the bears Jn bringing
about an early selling movement is ap
parent to all. Hardly a dealer can be
found who will not confess to having
sold the market short. Many have con
tracted to deliver 1905 hops to brewers at
33 cents; some perhaps under this figure
In order to cover their orders they must
(lopross the market, and the easiest way
to do this is to create a selling panic
among the gcowers. As has been stated,
k rtampede can have but one effect on the

in certain, and that is that October is
to be a most active month. What the
course of prices will be will depend on
how the farmers face the situation. With,
3?a,P bales unloaded on a market that
requires but 50,000 or 60.000, the 10-cent
dream of the bears will doubtless be
If the farmers, after carefully weigh
ing all the facts, decide that the best
policy is to hold on until later in the
Fall, it Is possible that they may beat
the game of tho shorts who have al
ready sold property that does not belong
to them at a ridiculously low figure.
These shorts will then be forced to cover
their orders as best they may, or go "up
In the air."
There Is much Interesting speculation as
to the course the hop bears will follow
after they once get prices down to the
low level they are aiming at, that Is. pro
vided they succeed in their endeavors.
Perhaps they will be satisfied with filling
tholr short orders, and perhaps not. It
Is more than likely that after they have
covered, -every mother's son of them will
flop over to the other side. "With their
Eastern obligations out of the way, they
will be ready to buy right and left at
the low prices they have brought about,
and then they will be the rankest bulls
In a bullish, market. Such transforma
tions are common enough in the hop
trade. Their present high crop estimates
will be iorn to pieces, Oregon cut down
from 110,000 to 75.000, California split in
half and New York reduced to nothing.
They will mako Just as much noise as
they are making now, but they will neces
sarily play on the other side of the drum.
And - the unfortunate grower who was
frightened Into selling before he was
ready to will have plenty ofMelsure to
watch his friend, the crsewhlle bear, rake
in the profits. All this provided the shorts
Vlri out in the struggle.
No -one disputes the i&ct that i&2 Is an
off year with the New York crop. Esti
mates of the yield of that state run all
the way from 23.000 to 60.000 bales. Prob
ably the crop will be between 40,000 and
50,000, or even less. Such being the case, a
strong and early demand from England
can be looked for on the Pacific Coast,
as New York will have very few hops of
shipping quality. According to bear cal
culations, England will take this year
some 60,000 bales of Americans the bulls
say 60.000 to 70.000 bales. Taking the low
est figure, it can be seen that quite a
hole will be made in supplies on this
Coast by the English requirements. New
York being" almost eliminated from con
sideration. Add to this the buying that
can be done on home account and it will
be seen that the demand for Oregon.
Washington and California hops will be
urgent, to say the least
Matter From Xeiv York.
If anyone doubts the accuracy of the
press reports that have been received on
New York conditions, the following letter
from Frank D. Miller, of Oneonta, N. Y..
should convince them. Mr. Miller ts well
known to many Oregon growers. He was
last here about the middle of August,
when he visited a number of hopyards in
the Aurora district. In company with
Henry J. Miller, of that place: .The letter
was received by E. J. Smith yesterday,
"Hops In the state will come-down
about half of last year, and I do not think
any more than that. Some of the yards
are spoiled from lice and honey dew. The
quality will be mixed and I do not antici
pate a great surplus of .shipping hops.
Tho only thing that will keep prlcos from
going up !. the English crop they arc
talking of. and it is questionable if they
will be able to gather It."
While the bulk of the trading will come
after October opens, there will be some
selling this month in the three Coast
states. It is probable that some sales
will be made at a low figure, as such
Is nearly always the case. These sales,
of course, will be published far and wide
as indicating the weakness of growers,
but the producers as a class, are not
likely to be influenced by them.
Bears Active in "Washington.
The weakest irrowers in the West are
those in Washington, who have been bom
barded by so much boar literature that
they have come to believe most of the
evil things told them. Had both sides
of the case been fairly presented to them,
as The Oregonlan has striven to do for
the Oregon growers, the Washington
farmers would be every bit as independent
as their brethren in this state. A Ta
coma dealer, who was in Portland re
cently, made the statement that he had
the Washington growers lined up so that
he could buy at 10 cents when he got
ready, and ho may be able to make good.
F. M. Crabtrcc, a grower of Laurel, Or.,
gives the following report on hop-picking
results in his section:
"Hop-picking commenced here on Sep

SALEM. Or.. Sept. 6. (Special.) It
is reliably reported that a deal was
closed here tonight for the sale of over
100 bales of hops of the crop of 1904 at
12 cents a pound. The names of the
parties to the deal will not be made
public until tomorrow. The sale Is im
portant because of the size of the crop
and the fact that this Is the lowest
figure received for hops that could
have been bought at 30 cents last Fall.
The hops arc now classed as prime, but
