The Hop Situation.
Barring the severe wind and rain
storms of Saturday and Sunday even
ings, the hops have had a jolly time of
it —plenty of moisture, a fair amount
of sunshine, and a warm temperature.
The wind, though, while doing little
serious harm to the vines, has caused
a great deal of work in the way of
training and tieing. It seems wonder
ful that the poles, twine and vines
could have withstood the shock so well.
Hail did some damage in Wide Hollow,
Natchees and Tampico districts. The
mishaps to hop growers foot up half a
dozen or so.
Among* those reported are the
following-: H. Spinning-, in Moxee
valley, hop house lifted from founda
tion and badly twisted; the store house
and old tobacco house on the Moxee
farm, blown over; S. Storrow's hop
house, injured abottts2Qo;P.A. Bound's
new house, Selah, not quite finished,
badly damaged. No mishaps reported
frm the Sunnyside country. There
the rain fell in torrents, but the wind
was less severe than around North
Nothing- new reg-arding" prices. Mr.
Weed has made contracts with quite a
number of growers at 12 cents, and
will probably get a few more at that
The hop growers' association meet
ing- was so poorly attended that action
was postponed to June 16. High water
prevented all the Moxee people from
getting in. Growers are awake, how
ever, to the importance of the meet
ing and will doubtless turn out in full
force next week.
In his weather report for the week
ending June 4, the director of the state
signal service station says a few hop
lice are reported in some localities in
eastern Washington. We have made
many inquiries of growers about here,
hut have yet to meet a man who has
seen a hop louse this year. Even if
they were plentiful they would cause
We have no reports from western
Washington since the storm, which
certainly was as severe there as here,
but presume no great damage result
ed. The week there at all points was
a good one for hop growth.
At San Francisco quotations remain
nominally at 13@16c. No change at
At Auburn —Nothing special to note
in the hop industry in this vi
cinity this week. The vines are
makihg a vigorous growth, and there
are no lice reported. —Argus.
At Puya^lup—At O'Brien, and in
fact at every point in the Pacific
northwest, we are informed that the
vines show a healthy, thrifty, promis
ing condition. The weather is splen
did —all that could be wished for.
Throughout California the same en
couraging- condition exists. Through
out Washington the vines are exceed
ingly free from lice. —Citizen.
AT Buckley—The appearance and
growth of the vine in this district is
all that could be desired. —Banner.
The latest that we learn direct from
London is in LeMay's circular for May
19, which says: The market opens af
ter the Whitsun' holidays strong. Re
ports from the hop plantations of Kent
and Sussex speak pretty generally of
an attack of fly. This causes holders
