TEACHERS HAVE MEETING
are Made for Thanksgiving
Celebration at Lincoln
About 2500 bales of hops, represent
fng the efforts of 12 growers, are now
stored in the Springfield Feed Com
pany's warehouse on Sooth Second,
street They began to come In about
September 10 and by the end of an
other week the remainder of the bo pa
from this vicinity which are not te
be hauled to Eageae to be shipped
over the Oregon Electric, will have
been brought in, bringing the season's
total up to between 2700 and 2809
bales. Probabley two growers are
yet to come in.
This amount is about three quarters
the size of the crop Jast year, accord
ing to C. E. Lyon, manager of the
Feed company. The loss has been,
caused by the mold which appeared
after the damp weather. Although,
there k a trace of mold In seme, on.
the whole the hops are good this year.
being sllghUy larger than usual.
Thus far approximately two ears
only have been sold. A part of these
will.go ia,BSU lets to England, others
will find a. berth in New York, and 1W
bales went to Milwaukee.
The 'owners of the 20 ortaore car
loads yet to go are holding in the hope
that the market will go above 19 Wd
11 cents.. wJiere it is now. "The
chances are that some growers will
hold pretty well into the winter, and
possibly until spring," Mr. Lyon said.
The figures given do not represent
the entire yield of tho territory around
Springfield, as many growers have
hauled to Eugene, because from that
point they can ship over the Oregon,
Electric. "If they had the Oregon
Electric railroad here, more hops
would be, shipped from this point, aa
often the growers can, get better prices
by shipping over that route, aa the
freight is a little less.'" said Manager
Lyon. "Fifty two bales of hops were
hauled by1 wagon to the Oregon Elec
tric depot in. Eugene last week."
Those growers who now have hops
stored in the warehouse here are: K.
E. Morrison, ilohn Seaveyt Palmer
Brothers, Clark and Washburne, Ar
thur Easton, Tom Seavey, W, R. Har
