Anient shipped Wednesday hlq latt years hop crop of 75 bales. He got 10 cents a pound which just leaves him even on cost of growing aud putting the hops in the bale and the insurance with nothing for the use of the laud. This sale cleans np all the hops in Rogue River Valley except 17 bales. All the previous sales were made at from seven to 11 cents a pound, a price that is ruinous to the growers. The hop yield for this year prom ises to be good in the yards that are being well cared for, but only about 75 per cent of the acreage in Rogue River Valley is being thoroughly cul tivated and trained. A number of yards have only had partial cultiva tion and a nnmber of others are not beug cared for at all, while several small yards have boen dng np. With the dealers by their gambling schemes getting all the profits and with no general market as with grain, hay or bntter, a few big brewing companies controlling the world's consumption and market the ontlook for the luck less hopgrower is not very enoourag iug. If the plan tried last Fall of putting hops in oold storage proves suceesB, as there is every reason to expect, the day for high priced hops is past for the brewers will bay np cheap hops aud hold them over to nse during succeeding periods of a short age of yield. Were the hopgrowers to form a union they might have a chance of keeping themselves from being ground betweeu the upper aud nether mlllstouus of the buyer and the brewer. But hopgrowers are like all other farmers they are shy of unions and co operation and that power to bo exercised by the town meu to the lat ter's gain and the farmer's loss. This starvation price of hops is doing some good for it is giving a big impetus to the fruit aud dairy industry in Hogue River Valley, the products of which are not readily emit rolled by the mar ket manipulations of deulers.

August Fetsch and J. D Fry also spoke iu favor of the paving proposi tion. A vote beiug takeu the decision whs two to one against the paving proposition.
