All Indications Point to a Big Clip In
Morrow and Umatilla Counties
Good Prices Will Be Paid.
Hoppr-er, Or., Fqb. 27. Already
500,000 pounds of wool have been
bought up In tho Sand Hollow coun
try, as the Columbia River basin ls
called, by one firm alone, while shear
ing operations nre still a month away
at the earliest. This firm, however.
Is about tho only one In the field so
far. It ls buying for scouring pur
poses. At this nrly stage 9 to 10 cents
ls being paid for tho somewhat sandy
Northern Morrow wool, a figure that
nugurs well for the prices later on In
tho season, and which compares very
favorably with the corresponding
price last year. The lighter wools of
the country, south of Heppner, will
hrlng a higher price because the
quality Is somewhat finer, and the
character cleaner. On a basis of
weight the fleeces net nlmost equally
the same In money.
In both Morrow and Umatilla the
clip will be first-class this season,
and the aggregate yield ot the two
counties, which are supposed to con
tain about 400.000 sheep, will prob
ably not fall much short of Inst sea

have not suffered any very severe
hardships this winter, as the flocks of
some other counties have been sub

The system of competitive bidding,
as Inaugurated last year, will again
be in vogue with its numerous attend

and the consequent better prices for
the producer. The Umatilla County
Association of Sheepmen will meet
some time next month to arrange
matters pertaining to the pooling of
individual clips, and the Morrow as
sociation will also have a meeting
soon. Sales will be held at Pendle
