The sale of 40,000' pounds of hops,
grown on the old Van Dandaigue yard,
at a figure not less than 35 cents a
pound, was authorized Tuesday 'by an
order from the circuit bench. The or
der was made necessary for the fact
that legal litigation over th yard is
pending, and, under the law, the receiv
er of property in such a case, can take
no action without consent of the court.
The authorization was given to May-
