PORTLAND, Feb. 2.-The largest tale
of hops ever made in Oregon waa cfoeed
today when Krebs Brothers of Salem
sold to Klaber, Wldf and Netter of this
city 1300 bales, their entire holdings of
19A4 hope. Tha terma are private but
the ruling price of old hop is $ to $
cents. The Krebs bop were put in the
famous Oregon Holders pool at the
time hops were selling at 32 eenta in
the hope that the market would be
forced to 35 or 40 cent. The high price
checked the demand and the market
since haa steadily declined to the pres
ent level. The shrlnksge in value on
this lot represents about fifty thousand
dollars to the sellers. The lot will be
exported to London where there is a
demand by ale brewera for old hops.
