Sacramento Daily Record-Union, Thursday, April 2, 1891


English visitors who are delighted with our climate

Among the visitors in the city are Ernest Collard and William Noakes, members of the firm of William Noakes, Son & Collard of London, England, prominent hop factors.

Mr. Collard was seen by a RECORD UNION reporter last evening at the Capital Hotel, where the gentlemen are stopping, and asked concerning their mission here at this time. Mr. Collard replied that they are here for the purpose of interviewing the hop-growers of this section in regard to consignments of the coming crop.

"I am free to confess, though," said he "that the prospect of our handling any considerable quantity of California hops this year is not very encouraging. You see, we are pretty well stocked up at home, while present supply here is light and the prices in favor of the holders."

"What is the present outlook in England for this season's crop?" the reporter asked.

"Well, it is too early to determine definitely. So far as we can tell, it is very good, but the blight may come, and then our home crop would be very short."

"What places are you to visit on the coast?"

"After looking at Sacramento hop fields," he replied " Mr. Noakes and myself shall go to Sonoma, then we shall return here and go north to Oregon and Washington and visit the fields up there, returning by the way of Canada and New York."

"To what hop-growing districts in this country do the English factors look mostly for stocks to handle?" asked the reporter.

"Sacramento and Sonoma chiefly," he replied, "although they raise a large quantity in Washington. Sacramento is the best known. Tomorrow we are going out to Daniel Flint's place, and shall also visit the fields of others about here."

"This ought to be a great hop country," said Mr. Collard. "Such charming weather is a revelation to us. Hops, you know require a dry climate in which to mature and here is where they ought to reach their best condition. Why, my dear sir, if the people had but a week's such weather in England during the year as we have enjoyed here today they would think themselves blessed.

"We took a ride out on your electric cards today to the end of the road, and the air out there was simply delightful. The green fields about us, the wild flowers, the clear blue sky - all served to make a charming picture. You have a grand country and climate out here!"

"Yes", replied the interviewer, "Californians have a pretty good appreciation of these things, and because they are enthusiastic over them they are often accused of boasting."

"Well, they have a right to boast for there are few people so favoured."

Tomorrow the visitors will depart for Sonoma, but will return in a few days.
