Puyallup, Aug. 24. As thoBoaeoa
for tbe hop harvest approaouoa, it is
well to review tbe situation, to "put
our bouses in order" for tbe Inevitable
struggle coming to save the crop, and
take into account tho factors governing
the markets and honce the final remit.
Statistically the situation is very
strong, and so It was last year, and yet
tbe market "slumped" and growers
wondered why, and blamed buyers for
tbe drop In prices. Tho cause for this
decline Is not difficult to find.
1st. Tbe quality was defective,
caused by early picking and the rav
ages of lice.
2d. Large blocks of tbe crop of the
Pacific slope were consigned by growers
to be sold on commission in London
which depressed tbe price, and always

which to purchase bis supplies, he sim
ply awaits tbelr arrival, knowing full
well that such are well nut of the way
of a competing market and will have
to be sold at substautiully his own
price, buob was tbe situation last year
and we warn tbe bop growers of tbe
Paolflo coast that such will Le the case
for this or any future year If a similar
policy ia pursued.
The remedy lies primarily in tho pro
duction of a better quality. Relatively,
last year California stood at the head of
the lists as to quality. Oregon next, and
Washington laat.but neither of the two
latter states produced tbo quality equal
to their best and may uever reasonably
expect a high price with inferior quali
It lies with tbe growers themselves
to govern the question of quality,

be done where tho hopi aro trampei

Keep your hops within reach of tbe

tbe United Btatee as well as of Eng

you don't rush out after them. This'

Germany has fared worse, and report
from many districts are to the effect
that tbe crop Is almost a total failure.
Nevertheless, i u others it k good. Con
servative estimates place the crop 60 per
cent of that of last year, which will
bring the crop below the average, and
with but fow If any hops to spare for
the English market.
THE UNITED 8TA.TJ39.
Now York will produce less bops than
last year probably 80 per cent, of last
year's crop. This shortage will be sub
stantially made up by the Increased
yield of the PaclQo slope from last year's
acreage first coming into full bearing
and new hops planted the present year.
Bo, upon the whole, tho situation, aa
we have said, statistically is a very
strong nne. Let not growers, from that
known fuot, deceive themselves into
the expectation of very high priees, or
allow others to deceive them. Our Mrs
E. Meeker, who is now In the East,
has met many in tbe trade who firmly
believe that the fluanclal.dletreee is cer
tain to force bops. to a low price (as it
baa already forced other produce down),
particularly at harvest time, when the
grower Is in need of harvest funds. Tbe
same factor, on tbe other side, prevents
free optMtlons of dealers or free pur
chases from consumers, hence a re
stricted, slow oomestio trado is ex

England will want a large block of

bops, knowing full well from all past
experlence;tbat bis sovereigns will fetch
them sooner or later ono way or anoth
er. It rests with the grower to say
whether bis bops shall bo sold at homo
and the monoy paid blm at home, or in
a foreign country by parties whom be
cannot know or control aud who, how
ever honest are, subject to the 'aws of
trado, that bo who ruus after a buyer
