ties are awaited from California to iden
tify him as Frederlckson. Mr. Morrissey
of Wtnlock, Wn., is still in town aud
will remain for a week or more. He is
very sure that Hofl'man and Hendrick
son are one.
At Kalama he described him to a
detective who was hunting for the
same man as the murderer of Bruce,

ferred. Hoffman has chanced his appearance
by growing a red beard, but Morrissey
who seems lobe an intelligent man,
says he can brlug people who will rec

a smooth face, and recognise Iiim as
the same man who is photographed as
Frederickson, and looked like that pic

stays in jail L6 days.

Situation of tho 'Crop in
AN OFFICIAL RFPORY FROM GERMANY
Strong Statistical SitunMou
Hops Don't Advance.
From the Commerce, Sept. 29: Hon.
A. V. Fawcett has herotoforo held his
hops and lost thereby. This year he
changed program and sold right uway,
to Geo. Rose, at 17J cents. Salo was
made Monday, and hops were No. 1,
raised under the careful supervision of
M. H. Smith.
Picking commenced in the Meeker
yards yesterday, and will continue
Marion Meeker will this year harvest
48,000 pounds against 34,000 pounds last
E. Meeker & Co. yesterday bought
195 bales at 17a and 45 bales at 10c. 17c
was paid 176 bales In Oregon Wednes
day. Meeker & Co. aro shipping 6 cr
loaea of hops to New York and Lon
don today, 3 from Puyallup and 2 from
Kent. Tnelr total shipments tor this
season up to date amount to 1897 bales.
1508 bales to London and 329 bales to
The shortage abroad Is as hitherto re
ported. England lacks from 125,000 to
150,000 of our bales of her consumption.
Germany is ulso in tho field as a buyer.
She will probubly to some extent get
goods from oilier parts of Europe but
will undoubtedly get more pr less from
the United States.
OUR GERMAN SPECIAL.
Herr F. Rhodlus, chairman of the
German society of hop culture reports
from Nuremberg, Sept. 3 as follews:
"Futures" will considerably reduce
the stock of hops and lesseu the offers
to sale which regulate the prices of the
Boason. On this point of view also the
situation is quite different from that of
1890 where the sales on future delivery
from the dealers to brewers bud u direct
bad influence on tho prices, the short
sellers having sought by all means to
depress prices, whilst this year the
dealers will enter into the season with
bargains already concluded and baye
an interest to hold the rutes.
Notwithstanding this situation which
Justlnea the expectations of high rates
of our planters and dealers it is not pos
sible to say what will be tbe highest
prices we shall have in the season and
when they will take place. Tbe rates
depend not ouly from tho statistical
position of the world's murket, which
us it appears has never been stronger,
but also from coincidences influenced
by subjective circumstances. From
the above objective comparisons every
body may draw liisnwn conclusions.
Tbe quality of this year's crop will
be good and In some places even very
good in the Gorman hop growing coun
tries. Concerning quantity, however,
Baden and Alsatia are more favored
than Wurttemberg and Bavaria. Ba
den and Alsatia may reach J crop; iu
most of the districts of Wurttemberg
and Bavaria tbey hope only for J.
In Posen (Prussia) they havo almost a
full crop, but being ono of the smallest
hop growing districts this will not
mend much tbe final results. The im
provement brought by The wet In July
has been overrated very much every
where; this is proved now by the re
sults of the gathering; and in general
Germany cuunot be estimated to more
than i crop, The orops obtained in
this country have been
1889 715,656 Ctr.
18S5 074,420 "
We cannot expect this year more
than 180-250,000 cwt. aud wo believe
that this latter figure will not be at
tained. But even at 240,000 cwt. and
supposing that tho German consump
tion which requires 375,000 ctr. will
only umount to 300,000 this yeur (us
there possibly remain some old stocks
or brtfwers can spare some hops) our
country will require 60,000 ctr. foreign
hops instead or exportiug 160 200.0J0
ctr. us in other years.
