Ed. C'llerren, of this city, Salem's
old-time hop; dealer, and an extensive
grower of hops, in speaking of condi
tions 'in the-yards yesterday, aald that
... the bops axft growing nicely, and the
yield promises to be a Very .fair one;
not 'as large Ju'dome years iw the past,
tut rauch., better-than, last year. The
u;U!ty, of "course, it will be- hard to
determine, as that depends largely on
the .care taken in harvesting the crop,
tut the prospects now are very favor
able. .A few i HCe nave, appeared in
? .nearly all the yards, but are doing no
damage, urid Unless unfavorable weath
er Vonrtit,Gnsf "Should ensue, "they! Will
.do 'no h.inn.i In all the heavy low
R.ndj-growers are spraying - to protect
"thir yards from the pests. ' . r
Mr, Herren says there will be plenty
of pickers 'at -40 cents a, box, to save
the crop, as f flax and prunes .will not
interfere wlsth the harvest this .year.
The flax 4 exacted, to be"ntiV;ly dls-
r posed- of before -the hop -piclilng' bo-;
gins, -ah d the ! prunes are late and
picking" will not "begin until about the
. close -of the hop season. Forty cents
eemsto. be the ruling price, and many
pickers ;a re, registering, but Mr, Her
reiJ says If the price should go higher
ami the: picker throughout the valley
shoul'JLilernand more, the growers; Will
have to.meet the demand and pay. ' '
. The New York yards are reported to.
be in. bad condition, and letters, re
- ceived by M. -Her.ren in the last few
days, confirm the reports ' that New
York will sea rce.' have h. half .crop. The
English crop, too, is Very backward,
although the late warm ' weather in
Enuland has brought the yards iut
nicely.- Conservative'- hop men -.in
Enfffand estimate "this year's yield 'at
'about 225.OQ0 bales, . against about
J3O.OO0 bales ' produced last year.. There
is plenty of time for the Snglish crop

- "Contracting has taken a lull and we
