Oregon is the first state oi mo
ITnion in hop production. Its crop
of 1903 sold for $2,900,000, netting
a profit of $1,776,000 to the growers.
The hop plant will grow in any

Oregon presents ideal conditions for

frequently so Bevere as to kill many
of the toots.

a great quantity of fertilizer is ne

average cost of production varies,
but it is estimated in JNew iora

is about 7 cents per pouna.

Mr. Durst is of the opinion the
tnt.l vild of the stale will hardlv
be up to that of last year. He esti
mate the 1904 crop of Oregon at
80,000 bales. The Calfornia yield,
will be short. Instead of
55,000 bale produced last year, he
estimates a yield or 43,uuu i-r
The Durst Bro., have jhu acres
of hops in California and they ex
pect to harvest 4750 bales.
Mr. Durst expect a Deiier price

"It look like the price will open

Durst. "The California, offers
have risen from 18 to 23 cents

cause of the upwardtendency, Mr.

fi. L. Fitchard.a hop grower and
dealer, is in receipt of a letter from
an eastern customer, that should
have the attention of eyery grower
before the hop picking season.
Writing to Mr. Fitchard the east-
rn brewing company says: There
has been some complaint of a raw
bitter taste on our beer, and we
sent some of all the materials in it
ta onr chemist in New York, and it
has been traced to the large number
of etem in the hops, and we would
be verv thankful if you would be
as careful as possible in eliminating
these stem for the future deliveries
of hop, i W hope the hop crop T
getting aleng in a satisfactory way.
