low 1S0G?' Now, I think it is not
hard to auswbr this question, ami It is
simply because your Oregon fa ineis
picked aud forced on the market so
many nuldy and low grades of lsi7
hops. The lo.OOO or 2t ,000 bales now
remaining In Oregon (March loth) w ill
du a great deal of harm to ail markets
hanging like a mill atone. Oregon
should tint have picked over 40,000
bales of 'U7s. Iu picking tho balance
of your crop you ouly show ed lo the
world how poor your state is liable
hereafter to grow hops, and this will
hurt Oregon hops In the future. Aa I
wrote you a yar or so ago 'it pays
better to grow five bales f choice
hop t!,au ten bale of poor ones.'
'From what we see and In ar, In
your Oregon psp.Ts, It 1 ok as If there
