NO HOP SHORTAGE
World's Crop Will Be Equal to
ON PRESENT ESTIMATES
Values Now Current Are Kegarded
' by Hopmen as Reasonable.
Harvest Hushed in Oregon.
Inquiry in California.
According to the best estimate available
from all the bop-growlns; countries of the
TCirld. the 1912 crop will equal and prob
ably exceed the world'! consumption, which
Is figured to average 1. "50.000- cwt. an
nnally. This statement is based on present
crop and weatner conditions In America and
Europe. There is also a certainty that the
better grades of hops will be scarce and that
poor heps will have to be used by the
fc-ewers sooner or later. With the sta
tistical position as It is. tb present valua
tions, which are from IT to 20 cents, ac
cording to quality, are regarded as reason
able. No trading was reported in Oregon yes
terday. Harvesting operations were pushed
tn all sections. That there will be mixed
quality this year is confirmed by the sam
ples now coming to the local offices.
Tn California there was a good Inquiry for
Jiops for September shipment -at about the
London hop-dealers- circulars dated Au
gust 26 .and IS. Just received, say of the
English market an prospects:
There are very few lots of 1911 hops left
on our market and prices have a somewhat
harder tendency. With no improvement in
th? weather, the condition of the coming
crop is in a very uncertain state, and it
appears doubtful whether the plantations
can recover from the effect of ths con
tinuous rains and low temperature to which
they hove been subjected. Wild. Neame
Consumers have now practically cleared
up the 1011 crop, and the advent of the
cro.-. is now anxiously waited for. A
few small pieces will be picked this week.
and the general picking In Kent will De
next week, weather of course permitting.
W. H. and H. Lee May.
A firmer .and stronger tone prevails for
the few remaining 1011s. and several good
sized parcels have passed Into consumers'
banCJ durlt g the past week. The con
tinued heavy rains and low temperature are
all aeolnst the crop, and the outlook is
becoming very serious Indeed at so late and
critical a period. Manger & Henley.
Continental conditions, according to a spe
cial to the Kentish Observer of August 29.
wre as follows:
'The weather in Germany, France and
Belgium has been of the most terrible char
acter dating the past fortnight wet, cold
and sunless. Hops have suffered severely
almost in every district, and the. crop will
be considerably below the expectations
formed a month ago, with mre varied qual
ity than usual. Picking is progressing in
some of the early districts, but is much re
tarded by the tonential rains."
BIO YIKLDS IX ACRORA HOPYARD3
Growers Faytas; SI rl7r Attention to Quality
. in Their Picking.
AVROnA. Or.. Sept. 11. (Special)
Wost growers now admit that mold exists
In varying desreos In nearly all yards, as
it has developed a great deal In the few
days of warm weather. There are some
yards In which It Is said there is no mold
whatever, but if so It is In yards that were
sprayed thoroughly and carefully. Growers,
as a rule, have exercised the greatest care
lu picking and have excluded all hops that
tri in bad condition.
There have been some phenomenal yields
In -this" section reported in the last two
ivy. The.Her.ry Kell yard of four and one
is)! acres came down at the rate of 250
boxes p-r acre; the Fred Bents yard at the
rate of over 200 boxes per acre; the Clar
ence Cirothers. the George Oglesby and
several ethers at the same or a better rate.
In yards of baby hops there are some
almost startllrg yields. The A. W. Kell
yard of baby hops, set out In March, yielded
at the rate of 142'4 boxes per acre, and the
Charles Beck yard, run by John Pugh, Jr.,
yielded SrS bcxes from three acres. Many
other yar 's have equally as good yields, and
tr.4 quality promltes -o be fully up to the
average., as growers' are not Inclined to
take any chances In picking hops that
are endangered by mold or vermin damage.
The first contract reported In several days
was made this afterroon. by which Klaber,
"Wolf ft Netter secured the 1912. 1913 and
3314 crops of W. L. Keames at 15H. 10 and

The Dalles were not as large yesterday as
on the preceding day. but there was more
