Since Big Leaders ' Withdrew
. From Bull Side Growers Are
No Longer Advised to Keep
In Holding. . . "
Slnr-a It waa flrat announced by rumor
that Messrs, rincus Son of Tacom
rind practically withdrawn from th butl
aid of the hoc market becaua tha
firm has dlsjoevj of Ua holdings, there
ha been a void of hop business ana
even the newspapers that were ao bull
ish and endeavored to hold growers m-
' tart hav displayed ltttla Interest In tha
market. '. - '
No dptilat bat been made by Messrs.
-leaao 1'lnena Bona regarding tha re
jxirt of their withdrawal, and the trade
therefore considers tha report truth.
Growers of hope are becoming rathur
ur n red of the outlook atid the lack of
hull no . which had fn aerved to
them almoat dully by newspapers allied
wllu the bull vide. It la doubtful to-
-day If more than 20 eenta a pound could

Want Aorta? Bcdoced Again.
Whll there are renorta of aomo In
crease In hop acreage at vaiioua Taclflc
coast points, there la a constant howl
frtmi varloua Interosta to pull down the
rroductlon because of unprofitable
r.rlcea. Thn latest Of theaa howls Is
from E. Clement Horat, a prominent
srrower and dealer. In a-letter irora
London he tella the Sarramento Bee: . ,
"The brewers throughout all of Eng
land. Scotland. Ireland and Wales are
all In favor of a tariff and are en-oper-,
minor with the hoD arowers end all other
Industries that want a tariff, ao when
the jnetlon of a high tarirr on hops
tomes up there will be no one In Inter
est to oppoae It. - There la ev
ery procpect that a duty on American
hops ehlpped Into Kngland will be a
heavy one, and that will lose to the
American grower, the only foreign mar
ket Auifrlca has ever had for the Amer
I. sn mirplua. Tha result will ba that
the Arnrlcan hop acreage must be fur
ther reduced from lis already low mark.
bs the present American acreage Is more
thim sufficient for the American bop
- The. lire says that Mr. Ilorat'a let
ter waa shown to ,F. Flint, a well
.known grower, who said that the advice
J not onlv good, hnt that It la timely,
l'.ecauae of tho Increase In the prloe
of hops this year growers all over tie
const are preparing to increase their
acreage. Even the Horst company, It
self. Flint asserted. Is preparing to set
out, about 700 additional acres of hops
this year, notwithstanding the fact that
they are advising other growers to cur
tail the ' aoreuge. America produces
.more hops than are needed for home
'consumption, and with a high duty
1 1 laced on hops In England, unless the
acreage la curtailed, a surplua of hops
will lie produced here. ;
CELERY DEMAND HERE
TAKES MANY CARLOADS
A car of celery was unloaded this
morning from the south and relieved
the famine that had existed in c the
wholesale trade. . ' .
Demand for celery has been unusu
ally brisk, and this has caused the Im
portatlon of more cars by. thla terrl
tory than ever before.' . .
' Cauliflower Is the only vegetable that
it not showing much life, and the trade
lias been filled up for some time. Most
sales around 11.65 aerate. .
Cuban tomatoes are selling quite well
around $3.60 for best quality, but there
is a likelihood that prices will be cut
a fraction next week,
