These two messages wen facetted by this

whether tbe report published Id a moraine paper

All e( them spoke nry highly of tbe quality

The hop trade ta general did sot evsn bear

The (act that dealers sold mora bales cf
Oregoa bops short thaa tnr thto year scores
salts eoaelaatraly that brewera did as dls

In (set ths trade 'says that these very beery
sales ta brewers almost a year before the hops

arewsts wen willing bay aiest of their
reqairemeats S year la adraoee, knowing that
ths duality woald always be that for which
tbe Oregoa bop has come ta be recognise.

will ant enter ths market on til compelled to.
Another thing tint will ban soaelderable bear
