Tho lull in the hop market during
tho past tu day has had little ef

er of Independence. That it is the
calm before the storm la conceded
and what the storm will be Is the
anxious conjecture of everyone. With

Germany almost 200,000 hundred
weight short, with the poorest crop
tiiat country has experienced in a
century, why should holders be threat
ened with nervous prostration?
There was a sale or two here the
lust week, but nothing of any conse
Quence. These sales will be intended
only to strengthen the market for
those who will hold "for thirty cents
or better. A nervous holder is better
out of the game.
Little can be expected of the mar
ket until the actual buyers come into
the field. They have an object this
year in being tardy on the grounds,
but that they will have to buy the
hops at any price is evident since
there is no surplus to speak of. Eng
land likes an old hop, that is known,
ana with the consumption of the
small amount now on hand she will
have to come after the new crop.
The conditions are about the same
over the United States as they are
In Independence. About the same
amount of hops are remaining in the
hands of the growers. Very few
choice are changing hands anywhere
and only those who haven't the nerve
to hold are selling at any price. That
there is a meaning to the lull will
certainly develop soon and that the
market will break with an upward
tendency there is every reason to be
lieve. One thing is certain, the deal
ers and the growers are in the same
box. The dealers are loaded to the
guards but that they will play fair
with the growers is a certainty since
everything depends, upon the ad
vent of the English buyer into
thP market. Should the dealers,
by anjP misadventure, weaken, panic
wlu ensue, mis is an
