W a crae among the hop growers
to aeo how many ara 'hey can get I

potimta they can ralae to the acre,
vhl h hn thliika la a mlataken Idea . j
lie further atated that In the well
cultivated yarda the crop would he
fully up to the average.
According to Conrad Kreba, the
well known hop factor, many offers
are being made to aecure contracts
on the coming bop crop at 12Mic a
pound and It la unlikely that much
bualneaa could be aecured under 15c
at that figure.
According to Mr. Kreba the Inde
pendence aectlona will produce not
more than 60 Der cent of last year's
rron. Salem. Ilrooka. Gervala. St. .
Paul. Butteville, Woodburn and Au
rora 40 per cent and Sllverton dis
trict 60 per cent. He Bays that Ore
gon cannot posaiuiy proouce niuio
than 60,000 bales thla aeason. He
rives the maximum for New York 35,-
000 bales, California 75.000 bales and
Washington 20,000 bales. The total
for the United States 190,000 bales as
compared with the short crop of last
year at 205.000 bales. Brewers' re
quirements are 229,000 bales annually.
