they delivered be gooda to Dooly
who waa there to receive them. The
Dallas boy had thlfVrten error cred

got off with six. Most of the errors
on both tides can Justly bo attribut
ed to the wet and slippery condition
Lt the ball. It was tearetted by all
present that the weather waa not fav
orable, for If It bad been, the result
' would have been different as both

Percivat apeot lbs grater parurf last
wek lo pooling tb bop crop la what
la geoarsJIy kowa a tha Ind. pmd
roc dUtsict. which la one of the
tar.sat la the stat. It oxu-no from
Buena Vtata oa th juia and Amity
on tb north, and Is comprised of
about thlrty flv yards, Including all
of the largest ooas la tula vicinity.
Th main object of the vlalt was for
tb purpoa of making aa near aa
possible an accurate estimate of tb
1909 crop which Mr. Young places at
not over 69 per cent of tbat of last
yvar. In apeaklng of the condition
of the crop be stated:
"There la no little anxiety now
about the growing crop which, owing
to the cold .backward weather, la not
making the progresa It ahould and It
Is getting to be a critical time when
unfavorable weather will have its ef
fects ou crop proBpects. Warm, aun
ny daya are very much needed, and
It baa been wet and cold for the past
Week or two."
Mr. Young estimates the growing
crop In the entire state at not over
40,000 bales and be gives It as bla
opinion that It may be as much aa
6000 bales less than that, notwlth
atandlng the fact that the New York
Bulletin estimates It at 46.000 bales.
It has been stated that the yield last
year waa 35,000 bales, and those who
are In a position to Judge pretty ac
curately insist that there will be less
rather than more on account of the
decrease In acreage. '
According to information received
eastern brewers are becoming aware
of the fact that the bop crop this
year is not up to' the average and
tbat prices must necessarily be high.
Thus the rush of 15 cent offers. As
a fair sample of the present, price of
hops, Julius Pincus of Tacoma re
cently purchased from Kola Nels 100
bales of 1908 crop for 11 cents, the
same hops being purchased not long
ago for 7tt cents. Eastern brewers
are not well stocked and prices will
be: good, , ... , :, - 7t ?
Several offers of 15 cents for 1909
hops have been made but there were
no sellers at that price so far heard
from. The , time limit of the much
talked about option at 20 cents ex
pired last week and lt has been given
out by W. L. Terhune, representing
the buyers, that several of them ma
terialized into contracts. Outside of
these contracts no advanced sales
have been announced.
According to the Dally Statesman
of Salem, the only two lots of 1908
hops left In growers' hands were sold
last week. One of thirty-nine bales,
grown by Hewitt and Terry, and the
other by R. M. Oshre. The price of
sale was withheld from the public.
The lot of ninety-three bales belong
ing to Frank Cody of Vernon Center
has been disposed of at 15 cents. r
