Billy Mascott Meets
Hardest Man of His
Career in Johnson
According to Salem fans who graced
the ringside at the smoker held in
rortlnnd last night Hilly Mascott. who
boxed Leo Johnson, the colored feath-
erweight, met the hardest hitter of his
career and for the first time in his

Then Bing. and a smoky right arin

jaw. Mascott hit the floor and stretch
ed out as straight as if he were on a
slab nt the morgue but he was up in an
instant and came boring 141 for more.
Hilly was knocked out on his feet n ml
only his rare fighting instinct kept him
from losing the decision right there.
He was groggy and all but out and kept
falling toward Johnson. The colored
lad swung rights 11 ml lefts but Hill v
covered and as each blow lauded it nnl'v
straightened him up nud if the colored
boy had only let him fall't'orward Billy

A trip through the Independence sec
tiou makes it clear that the growing
season for hops . has scarcely begun.
Many yards show very little Rreen as
yet though the yards have all been
strung. Some, however, have the vines
well up toward the wires, though these
yards arc not numerous. The high
Irellised yards do not, of course, show
vine growth as quickly as the low- trel
lessed of the Aurora section do. The
rich lowland yards of Independence dis
play a more rapid growth than ours
when growth once begins. There is
considerable complaint in the Indepen
dence country concerning missing hills.
There is also repo-tcd to be consider-
..l.ln rllutiifiefnitinit nitiimfT Mm nniallet
1 . Tn.l,.,,n,1i,.u who V.e-
, f , ' , C RKS0.-.kiwn ov the fail-
ore of the association to dispose of
their hops, much of the 7,000 bales yet
nn hand belonging to the small growers
there. Rome are speculating what the
result will lie if these hops sell below
tho contract price. In that case they
are wondering if those growers who
have already been paid will have to
refund any part of the money received
TTon ciowers q lite cent rally .n-
port the vines held back by the un
favorable weather of the month past.
While the outlook is fair for he pro
duction of an average crop, there
no doubt that ' some local yards are
in a verr backward condition, and
unless the May and June growth
unusual, some yards will produce a
very light crop.
The Waterville New York) Hop
Reporter savs: "The constant de
mand at present is slowly cleaning
nn the few remaining lots, although
there is vet some difference of opin
ion between irrowej and buyer in re
gnrd to price. The roots seems to
have a very good start and despite
th. losses of the past season the
growers are anticipating a good crop
this fall. ' There is no demand for
hop roots and in several cases yards
are being plowed up nn that account.
Tnstend of placing nn embargo on
hops, the English government have
entered into nn agreement, with
British brewers' society by which it
agreed to - reduce the output Of
beer, about 30 per cent. This will re
duce the importations of hops almost
one-third. If this report from Lon
don is true, the export demand for
hops will not cut so great a figure
this season as in the past, and a sharp
reduction in production seems to be.
the only remedy available to the grow
er to prevent ruinous prices for his
crop. Aurora Observer.
PORTLAND MARKET REVIEW
Portland, Ore., May 27. The murlfet
for strawberries was firmer and gen
erally higher along the street for the
day for best quality stock. Sales of
first class berries were generally re
ported nt $3 a crate. Some off grade
stock sold (low nto $2.50.
On the east side farmers market sales
of strawberries were made to dealers at
$2..l50ft7'2.75 a crate.
Supplies are now coming in slowly
from the section immediately surround
ing Portland. From the Mt. Taboi sec
tion quite fair stocks were reported
during the Inst 21 hours.
The carload of Kennowick stock,
which arrived the first of the week is
still too green to consider 11s a gen
eral market factor. In fact the berries
are so green that wonder is expressed
by the Irado that local inspection of
fieinls allowed their snle.
