At Kent the crop is heavy and if not damaged by con
tinuous rain will be extra choice.
At Puyallup the rain is doing much damage. W. A.
Spencer has only picked about 17 boxes of hops where he
had expected to pick nearly 100. He did not spray early
enough and the recent damp weather has caused them to
At Yakima the past week has been full of interest and
excitement to everybody who is .connected in any way with
the hop industry. The buyers have been "making hay"
as rapidly as possible by contracting hops first at 9 and
later on at 10 cents. They remain very firm at this figure
and the majority of growers who did not contract early
in the season are holding off for still better prices, and are
very strong in their belief that better prices are bound to
It was found that the 75 cent rate agreed upon by the
Yakima Hop Growers' Association was not sufficient to in
duce outside pickers to come into that valley, so last week
the price was raised to a dollar a box. This increase is
causing pickers to flock in from all over the state.
S. Schreiner has just completed a fine new hop house
26x26 feet. Mr. Schreiner has made a success of the hop
business even during the period of its greatest depression.
Hop market in New York unchanged. Quotations there
for Pacific Coast, 1896, choice, 10c; good to prime, 7/2 to
8 ]/ a c; common to fair, 5 to 7c; State and Pacific Coast, 1895,
3 to 4c. and old olds, 2 to 4c.
H. Klober, Balfour, Guthrie & Co.'s hop representative,
stated to a reporter of RANCHE AND RANGE Monday
that he had bought so far for his firm 1500 bales of hops
in Yakima Valley. Mr. Klober is fearful that if the rains
and cloudy, cool weather continue the hop crop of Western
Washington will be badly damaged. Already the output
has been lessened 10 per cent by lice and mould. He esti
mates that the raise in price of picking from 75 cents to
$1 per box will cost the growers of Yakima Valley at least
$25,000 additional. While this is hard on the growers it
makes money fly among the laborers.
