The region around Dallas has
this year turned off an immense
crop of hops of unusually high
quality and for some time the
city has been over run with buy
ers who are anxious to relieve
the growers of their holdings.'
A few sales huve been made at
26 cents but many of the farmers
are holding for better prices and
it is thought there will be no
general unlaoding until the price
reaches 30 cents. Shippers are
having difficulty in securing cars
to handle the hops and, as the
warehouse is full, the delivery
of the product will have to slop
unless the car shortage is relieved.
