Eight Times Business" '
- Of Last Year
.WEST: STAYTON., Oct. ' 1 0.
An Industry in this community
which -was started last year has
grown to about eight, times Its size
when tart fed, This Is the sorghum
industry, quite new in Oregon.
HV If. Crane ef this community in
troduced 4t to the growers here.
He grew cane a number of years
ago in the east. ,
The arerage yield of finished
product la 75 to 80 gallons an
ere. More than four-fifths of the
Juice boll away, and it takes
bout seven eight gallons of
JnIi to make one gallon of syrup.
The process for making the syr
up Is simple. The cane is pressed
through a large group of rollers,
leaving the stalks like pulp. The
Juice la then placed in a rat and
boiled about three hours. When
this has been -finished it is ready
to put in containers.
There are three men working at
the mill, and It is run br horse
power. An average of 30 to S&
gallons of the syrup Is finished
Next year the growers hope to
Improye their mill by haying an
electric motor installed. With this
they. plan to turn out about 100
gallons of syjnp a day.
Mr.-Crane, who has had much
experience with cane, says it does
better on irrigated land. The mill
is located on the Crane place.

Oregon hop markets held steady
last week, with prevailing quota
tions practically unchanged from
those of a week ago, lt32 crop
Choice Clusters were netting
growers 15c to 16c per pound, for
the few hundred bales which
changed hands during the period.
These prices are about one cent
higher than those at this time last
Purchases during the week
were confined to small lots in
scattered areas, since the larger
growers continued to hold firmly
lor nigner values, with many not
placing a price on their holdings
at this time. Demand was good
from domestic buyers, who were
taking the light offerings readily
at current prices, although re
luctant to advance their bids. No
new foreign sales were reported
in Oregon markets this week.
Baling is nearlng completion In
Oregon, but it is still too early to
a aeiinue production figure, such
as win be available later when
dealers have had time to complete
the check of all yards. Trade es
timates still place this year's Ore
gon crop at from 65,000 to 68,000
bales, as compared with last
year's production of 85,000 bales
. M. a . . .
aboui cwo-imrqs or tnis year s
crop is reported still unsold in
growers hands. The light and un
der-normal business for the sea
son to date In Oregon, is in con
trast to the unusually free selling
by California and Washington
growers tnis season.
Stocks of old hops remaining in
growers hands October 5, in Ore
gon, according to trade figures.

bales; 1930 crop, 678 bales; 1929

Portland onion buyers, both W: I.
Swank and H. I. Anderson, have
purcnasea onions In toe past week
zor s-ipment to China.
Both buyers are attempting to
obtain the oriental market for La-
bish onions,; a market which has
been filled by California growers
in the past, it is reported. The
quality of the California crop this
yeaff seems : not to warrant the
risks of shipping to China, and if
tne local onions prove satisfac
tory, it is hoped the market may
be held permanently. Approxi
mately 200 carloads or about 1-4
01 me locai crop may find an
opening In the new market.
Growers hare received from 21
cents to 40 cents a cwt. for recent
purchases. The onions are being
hauled by truck to Portland for
loading on the vessels.
