for sheep grating in this vicinity are
altout over for the season. Owners of
bands feeding on the Blue mountain
ranges say that they must move their
flocks some time before the commence

most an impossibility to make the ani
mals travel when there is even a light
fall of snow. For this reason tbey
will atarrto remove their sheep in a

COMING ON FINE
QUALITY OF OREGON HOP CROP
WILL BREAK ALL PREV
IOUS RECORDS, -
Altholgh There Is Scarcity of Tickers
,ln Vallffy the Crop Is Being Harvest
ed Well and Will Suffer None Sale
of 1905 's Is Eeported.
Although there is a shortage of pick
ers in this seet ion of the valley it is
not of a serious nature in any respect
and the hop harvest is going on under
very favorable auspices and there seems
no question that the crop will be har
vested in good shape1 and that the qual
ity will be the lest in- the history of
the industry, with the' possible excep
tion of the year 189C In most yards
the yield . is coming down almost as
well as was expected early in the sea
son, but in others, which are the ex
ception rather than the rule, the yield
is lighter, than predicted, which. condi
tions, taken together, insures about an
average crop, taking into consideration
the increased acreage.
The. weather could not have been
more ideal for maturing the crop' and
the hops that are being picked now are
in -prima condition .aud, , if properly
picked, dried and baled, are certain to
be of a bright yellow color and -strong
and will bring the top price in the
market with a premium. - Many of the
growers, that is the small growers and
those in the district north of this city,
are through picking now and their
pickers are moving into other yards,
where there is a shortage, and -before
th-hop pieking season, ends there will
be a plenty for all and a surplus. From
reports received there seems to) have
been little or no trouble with the pick
ers, -generally speaking. There was
some slight differences in a few yards,
in some the piekers complained about
picking by weight, while in others they
objeeted to' picking by the box. These
troubles have all been adjusted, how
ever, and, so far as is known, every
thing is running smoothly and all are
Some growers are having trouble with
" dirty ' pickerSv" in the hop language,
but in cases where they refuse to pick
clean the growers, in their determina
tion to have an excellent article, will
not tolerate their services any longer
than it takes to get rid of them. There
is nothing that can injure the prospects
of the eroo now except that thc5 rains
set in and keep up continuouslywhich
may drive the pickers from the yards,
and frost, a heavy visitation of the lat
ter of which would be most serious.
Neither condition, however, is likely to
transpire under present conditions of
the weather. There is nothing , doing
in the market at present, as there are
no offerings of 1904's, and the -buying
of futures has hardly begun yet, al
thougb'it is said, some hops are offer
ing at various prices. Krebs Bros.,
local hop dealers, have bought five hun
dred and forty bales of hops from T.
Livesleyi for which they paid, it is
though, about 15 cents. The hops are
of the 1905 crop.
" Homer Goulet of Brooks expected to
harK twelve hundred pounds to the acre
of hops when they came-down ; with
only 640. Krebs Bros, report also that
their Brooks yards, which they expected
to yield about nine hundred to a. thou
sand pounds, will vield but five hundred

Preferred to Pick by Box. '
Thfe Silverton Appeal says: J. Klop
fenstine, who had arranged to pick his
hops this season by weight, changed his
plans after a few days' picking and
had new tickets made with which to
supply the pickers during the remain
der of the harvest. He says the hops
weighed on an average of four poinA'
per box over measure, and he preferred
to pick by measure ia as much as the
pickers were just as well satisfied. We
have heard others raLte the same ob
jection, Out of the many who favored the
method of picking by weight, when it
was first suggested, are A. Wolf k Son,
among the largest growers in this vi
cinity, and it is understood that they
are picking this season by measure. G.

not be obtained, and from all reports
we judge that two thirds of the grow

crop. .. -!

Hop picking is now well under way
in the Yakima valley. The season is
from five to ten days later than last
year, but the growers will have their
work completed in ample time for the
state fair. - A large number of the
growers have a force 'of men in their
yards,, while a number of tbem will
not commence till next Monday and
some will delay till the middle of the

men in , his yard in the Selah all week.
He says his crop will )e equal to last

he says, will be as heavy, but the
weight will be a trifle lighter. Mr.
Schott has contracted all his hops to

the most of them. " , '
The Moxetf Company. F. K. Hiseook,
H. B. Scudder, George Ker and others

They have not got far enough ahead
to determine the crop, but they say it
is fine "and will average that of last

athan Baldwin and a number of others
have a force of pickers in their fields.
In this district some of the yards were
attacked with lice and are not showing
up equal to the other yanls mentioned.
The crop as a whole, judging from
present indications, will be of extra
quality this yearY
The production in Yakima for 1904
was not as large as bad lieen predict;
ed. Some buvers have often said ithere
were between 21,000 and 22,000 bales.
An estimate made this morning will
fall 3MNI bales or morn short. Agent
Meeks of the Northern Pacific has
handled through his office for shipment
on which bills of lading were made out
15,427 bales. About thirty bales, he
estimates, have been shipped to Ru
lyn, Ellensburg and Walla Waila. with
out bills of lading. This would run
the total hops shipepd to 15,457 bales;
There is variously "estimated to be
between 2,KK and 2,800 bales in the
hands of the growers. One buyer esti
mates 2,K00 bales, while some growers
place the estimate at 2,30. It is fair
to say that there are probably 2,500
bales in the hands of. Yakima growers.
Allowing that the highest estimate of
the buyers is eorreet this would make
a total of 8.257 bales for 194.
An estimate of the holding was given
b' one of the bif growers this morn

crop run to 25.000. if the yards aver

PORTLAND, Sept. 16. Confirma
tory of the reports sent out in Associat
ed Press dispatches for almost a week,
that i feverish activity existed in rail
road work betweeu Vancouver, Wash.,
and the Cascades of the Columbia,
President Howard Elliott . of the .North-
rn Pacific railway, through Assistant
General Passenger Agent Charlton of
Portland, today made public the fact
that a road, to be built and operated
jointly by the Northern Pacific and tha
Great Northern, is to be constructed
down the north bank of Jbe Columbia
river from Pasco, Wash., at a point
where the Northern Pacific, crosses th
Columbia river in eastern Washington,
to Vancouver, Wash., and from the lat
ter place, spanning the Columbia and
Willamette rivers to Portland. The
announcement is the most significant
since the news of the completion of the
Northern Pacific, the first transcontin
ental road to enter Portland almost a !
quarter of a century" ago. implementing
i'resident Elliott's announcement, As- 4
sistant General Passenger Agent A. D.
Charlton said: It is estimate that,
about two years will be required to put
the road in operation. The distance
from Pasco to Portland is a little more
than two hundred miles, and the un
official estimates- place the cost at ap--proximately
close, and reports indicate that the
yield is better than was expected. This

The work of picking the hps ' J.""

and leading growers estimate that this
year's output will fool up about 1300
bales. This is practically j the same as
last year's jcrop, and is - made on the
basis of a 20" per cent shortage, as th
acreage is larger this season than last.
Jt Is believed that the .shortage is
much less here than in. other sections
o'f the" state, the output being held up
by irrigation, a factor that will figure
still more prominently in Josephine
