and court mnra.
The markot Ih In waiting position
todny, there being no transactions
reported In 100G hops, and It Is still
too soon for tho new crop. Picking
of somo of tho enrly yards will bo
gin in tho State next week, and a
few bales should be on tho markot
In nnothor ten days at tho most.
Picking is In full swing in tho Sac
ramento district of California, but
the crops In other sections will not
be harvested for another fortnight.
There Is no chnngo noticed In tho
crop news, nnd it begins to look aa
1' tho crop- is now assured. Thoro h
somo complaint in New York that
tho crop needs rain, but this la not
considered serious. Tho const condi
tions contlnuo good, although not
ninny wires aro pomlng through, on
account of tho telegraph Btrlko. Eng
land reports conditions unchanged
and an average crop In prospect. Ad
vices from tho Continent nro excep
tionally good, and their market has
shown a decided decline In quota
tions for 1907 crop. DuslncsB with
brewers Is reported very slow, as
they aro all waiting for now hops.
U. S. beer output for tho calendar
year was 57,108,288 barrels. Tho
output for 1907 is llkoly to pass
tho CO, 000, 000 mark, and will call
for 210,000 bales of hops, of which
about 33,500 bales will bo Imported
varletl03 and 170,500 domestic.
With a probablo domestic crop of
370,000 bales, as now estimated
(barring unforseen disaster), there
will bo left 193,500 bales for ex
port, for general uso other than
brewing, and for resorvo not to
speak of largo stock carried over
from last year.
Obviously tho world's present nnd
prospective supply of hops far ex
ceeds all chance of utilizing tho pro
duct In a single year, and low prices
aro Inevitable. Moreover, brewers
have tho advantage of cold Btorago
facilities, which growers havo not.
Hop Conditions In England.
(Maidstono South-Enstern Gazette,
Ashford West Tho hops about
hero havo decidedly Improved. From
an inspection of tho gardens in a
wide district In Kent, tho conclusion
arrived at Is that an average crop
will bo grown, provld'ed that tho
present favorable weather con
tinue, and thoro Is no serious attack
of mold. Picking will bo late.
Benenden Tho hops aro vory un
even. Somo pleceB look vory woll,
whilst others aro standing Btlll.
There Is not sufllclont bine for a
heavy crop. Vermin still linger.
Canterbury Tho plant has maJ
little progress during tho week, the
cold nights being detrimental. Fresh
attacks of fly aro reported, and
washing ha3 to be frequently resorted
to. Mold, too. Is said to bo spread
ing, although In the boat cultivated
gardens there is little to complain of
In this respect. Even wJth tho
weather conditions favorable, ft
seems certain that the crop must fall
short of an average one.
Goudhurst The bops continue to
make fair progress, but burr is slow
In coming out, and picking must be
later than usual. Most growers havo
discontinued washing this week, al
though In about every garden vermin
are to bo found. Mold Is little
trouble at present.
Hadlow -The verdict, after a cur
sory! visit to tho plantations In this
neighborhood, would undou.btedly.be
"a gonernl Improvement," but a clos
er Inspection would revonl a far from
satisfactory state of affairs. Tho
fact; Is there is too much vermin
about. This is palpnbly evidenced
by t)io ladybirds already working In
"Farnham Tho warm weather of
the past week has brought about
considerable Improvement In tho
plantations and If It Is maintained
for tho next few weeks, tho hop
qrop will be a fair averago one. Tho
bines are Just breaklpg In (lower,
and as a rulo are clean and vigorous.
Many gardens aro practically freo
from blight although washing is be
ing carried on generally.
Worcester Tho weather this last
week has beon variable, but on tho
whblo favorable, thero having boon
a fair amount of sunshine. Blight
is troublesome nnd keeps growors
busy. With improved weather tho
prospect is more favorable.
Medway Valley Thero Is still too
much vermin In most grounds, nnd
washing is going on nlmost every
where. This nnd tho weather seem
to havo kept the hops backward.
Very few pieces of Brambllngs nro
In full burr yet, nnd no hops show
ing. It is snld tho hop3 require to
bo out in hop at loast a month boforo
they nro ready to pick. This bo
Ing so, hop picking must ho vory
Slttingbournc The hops In this
district nre making good progress,
nlthough in. somo gnrdcnH they nro
bnckward. Washing In Btlll In pro
grow. Thero Is every Indication that
thoro will bo n heavy crop.
Worthan nnd DlBtrlct Tho burr
comes-out slowly in most gardens
and Is none too plentiful for tho
moderate show of bino. Given fn
vorablo weather the picking must ho
a late olio. As both vermin nnd mold
nro in ovidencc, qunntlty and quali
ty aro likely to vary to a largo ex
Tho trndq demand in tho borough
has not been ot much importance,
but It Is about sufllclont for tho rem

Hops In Wutililngtoii.
Western Washington hops will
likely bo of good quality this year,
according to tho Intent Ibbuo of tho
Seattle Register, which says:
While the growing hop crop is
backward on Pugct Sound, tho qunll
ty is reported as superior to any crop
so far raised. Weather conditions,
dry and hot, havo been vory favor
able to the growing vines, and llco
havo bo far been few and easily kopt
down, he yield of tho Btnto is now
placed nt about 15,000 bales. On
tho other hand, In the Yakima coun
try, on account of tho backward
spring, and a bnd attack of vermin,
it Is hard to toll what tho farmers
will get from their fields.
The Oneont'a Herald of August
15th says: OUogo growers stato
that there Is n fair outlook for an
averago crop this year of Biiporlor
quality. Picking, howover, will bo
about ten days later than usual. Thus
far no llco ar oreportod this soa
6on. The Cooperstown Journal, August
15th, says: The local hop markot
has been very Inactive for tho past
week, there being no salos foportcd.
The Incroasd acreage of this year
about ovens up what was plowed up.
Tho growing crop Is looking fino,
with no vermin, nnd one local dealer
predicts that the crop of 1907 will
about equal that of 1907
The Coblesklll Times, August 15th
sayBj At the present time tho hops
appear to be about two weeks back
ward from a number of years past.
If this is true growers should not
begin picking late hops before tho
second week In September. Up to
date the hops are fre from vermin,
llco or any other quality which would
compel growers to pick early. Tho
quality Is unexceptionally flno and
an endeavor should bo made to har
vest tho crop In a manner that New
York state hops should bo tho cream
of the marked and bring soveral
cents per pound wore than other
