L. Damon was the last to bgiD
picking and he started on his yard
yesterday whan others had been
picking a week.
The over abundance of pickers
keeps the drying capacity (axed
and the winding op of bop harywt
will not be delayed as it bas been
in fo-mer years. Besides, the
yield Is not heavy. Yards along
the river bottom generally are turn
ing out fairly well bat back from
the river tbs yield is light. As
harvest progresses, it is conceded
the state yield will fall below the
estimates before picking began.
h. C, Ilorst of the Horst Bros
firm visited his big yard here Sat
urday. Ilorst Uroe. are the world
biggest hop growers. They have
yards in Oregon, Washington. Cal
norma and British Columbia. The
latter country produces only 8500
bales and 2500 of those are grown
by Ilorst Bros. Mr. Horst puts in
bis time among the hop yards at
this season. He had come direct
from the British Columbia fields
when he stopped here Saturday
' I am well pleased with the pros
peots of my yard here," be said in
an interview with the Weet Side
Enterprise Saturday. "The. crop
in both Oregon and Washington
will be short this year. In Cali
fornia, the yield will be some great
er than last year, largely because
of the lose last year on account of
the levy breaking." Mr. Horst
finds no fault with the present
prices though he is buying some
bops. He bas made some pur
chases in Lane county. Asked as
to the price he replied 26 and 26
ceuts and said there had been some
contracts high as 27 cents.
Geo. Kose sold 500 bales of his
hops through Oeo. Dorcas to
Klaber & Wolt at 26 J cents.
Considering the large number of
people brought together, and com
mg as tbey do from all classes it
has been a peaceful season in the
hop yards. - There was some trouble
between the whites and Chinese at
the Krebs yard the last of the
week, but Conrad Krebs came up
yesterday and removed the source
of friction. A man named Van
dersol attempted to organize a
striKe in the Uttenheimer yard
yesterday, but Mr. Ottenheiuier
came up and paid off Vandersol
and his followers and discharged
them. All is now harmony in the
Ottenheiuier yard. Tnere was a
report circulated in Salem and at
the State Fair Grounds yesterday
there was a big row on in an Inde-
ondence hop yard and four men
had been killed. Thus do stories

Accommodation for the travel
ing public at the hopyards are
certainly better this year than any
previous year if hotel signs figure in
the least At Rose's Hop yard the
traveler will see located on the line
between the white man's settlement
and the tents occupied by the red
men, a' hotel and it would be hard
to 'find its equal. The sign in
flaming letters on canvas reads
"Hotel Nome .'operated Jby Brink
ley and McAdams, Phone No. 9711,
Beds II meals 50 cents."
This hotel under canvas is a
typical Nome tent 6 by 4, and it
would bu well for those contemola-
ting the engagement of a bed to
speak for it for the day only aa the
proprietors occupy it at night.
Just down the line and not far
from "Hotel NoW is "Hotel De

idea and are making their pur
chases at Messner's, evenings and
Sundavs and having them laid
aside until they start" home thus
securing more time to make .their
