THURSDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1904.
The Dal lea newspaper rejoices because
Waaco county won the only grand prize
in the whole United States, but refrains
from mentioning what Hood River did
toward winning the prize. How un
kind. E. L. Smith hat received word from
0. J. Since), secretary of the Northwest
Fruit Growers' association, that the an
nual meeting of the organization will be
hold at Boise, Idaho, January 10, 17 and
18. Mr. Smith, who is president of
the association, will attend from Hood
River. He is desirous of having a dele
gation of fruit men accompany him
A meeting of the librarians of Oregon
will be held in Portland, Tuesday, De
cember 27, to discuss methods of work.
This will be sort of a preliminary meet
ing before the gathering of the national
association in that city next July. Li'
hrarios are a strong factor in education'
al work, and as the Hood River public
schools have a splendid beginning for a
valuable library, It would be hetpful for
those in charge of the work In this city
if one of the teachers or one of the high
school pupils could attend the meeting
in Portland next week.
The fllremen's ball New Year's eve in
a worthy object which every citizen of
Hood River and the valley who has the
prosperity of the city and country at
heart should support. A thoroughly
equipped and efficiently drilled fire
company is one of the very best acqui
sitions a live town can secure for its pro
tection and the continuity and increase
of Its prosperity. The welfare of the
city is closely allied to the success of the
valley, and many of our citizens in the
country will undoubtedly have enough
personal Interest in the creation of a
first class fire department in Hood River
to assist them to the extent of the price
of ticket at least. We have the timber
in our volunteers for the making of a
first class fire company. Let us Bee that
they have everything they need for their
work. It is all the pay they get and all
they expect, and they will repay it a
thousand times in preventing in the
future such disastrous fires as the one
we experienced but recently.
Hood River wius more gold medals on
fruit two gold ones and one grand
prize for WaBco county, the only prize
of its kind for fruit in the whole United
Mates. 1100a ltiver iruit growers are
accustomed to receiving such prizes
and while the result is gratifying, we
don't believe our farmers will be
spoiled because of these additional
notches they have carved in the tally
stick of fame. It was the apples from
the Hood River fruit fair that brought
the gold medals, and no doubt won the
grand prize for the state's horticultural
display, as well as that for Wasco coun
ty. The sending intact to St. Louis of
the apple display trom the fair last
October was made possible by the
prompt action of the Portland business
men in pledging money for the expense.
Hood River will not forget this kindness.
We have won the gold medals we went
after, now lot's spend some money in
advertising this fact fur and wide
throughout the land, and make early
preparations for a proper display nt
the Lewis and Clark fair. This will re
quire hard work and money, but Hood
River people can supply both.
Commissioner of pensions, Eugono F.
Ware, was too honest a man for the
Washington pension sharks. He re
signed last week and returned to Kan
sas, declaring he pruferB the cyclones to
his experiences in the peiiHion ollice.
The hnililing of a railroad up Hood
River valley next summer will tend to
make business lively here. We hope a
grade will be found that will make the
building of the road possible. It will
meau that the mills of the Oregon Lum
ber company will give Bteady employ
ment to hundreds of men. Not only
that, but a steam railway up the valley
will furnish means of transporting ber
ries and apples to the track of the 0, R.

be hauled in wagons. In the next few
years the bringing to market of the ap
ples of the valley will tax the capacity
of all the wagons and the time of all the
drivers in Hood ltiver. A roud up the
valley is a necessity.
Pleasant Dancing Party.
The Dancing Club's hop at the opera
house last Friday evening was a very
enjoyable event. Thirty-one couples
wore present, and Everest's five-piece
orchestra from l'ortland supplied superb
music. The lights flickered and went
out as the musicians struck up the strain
of the "Home Sweet Homo waltz," but
a little thing like that bothered no one,
as the gay dancers swung round the
hall, sorry it was the hint dunce of the

Commissioner Welter Visits Orchards.
R. H. Weber, horticultural commis
sioner for the fourth district, and pro-
frietor of The Dalles Nurseries, was in
lood ltiver last week, visiting the or
chards of the valley, and warning fruit
growers to be careful in keeping their
trees tree irom scale ami other danger
Mr. Welior says he finds it very ditll
cult to get fruit trees sprayed inside the
city limits, but the law requires all fruit
trees to be sprayed, and he does not feel
that people in the town and cities
should be allowed to neglect their few
scattering fruit trees to the detriment
of the orchards in the valley. Those
who have trees within the city limits
must look after them, or the fruit com
missioner will exercise his authority in
ordering them grubbed out, should he
find any o( them infested with disease.
Cougar Took Voting Man's Nerve.
Lee Kvansol Mosier.who was in Hood
River Tuesday afternoon, tells a real
cougar story as tol.owa: Kd Harvey, a
young man of Mosier.who came up from
l'ortland last Friday night to spend a
few days with his parents, who reside a
couple of miles back from Mosierstatinn,
was going out homo with a lantern,
when a monster cougar appeared in the
road. The cougar let out blood-curdling
screeches anil refused to give the
path to young Harvey.
Harvey didn't care to force matters,
so stopped and returned not in a leisurely
manner to the home of Mr. Evans,
where Kd breathlessly told his tale, and
secured lodgings for the night.
Kvans says they went out the next
morning with a dog and gnu, and whi.e
the tracks of the beast were there,
the cougar wasn't. It wasn't a cougar
from the school section, either, savs Mr.

CITY LEVIES A
Police Committee's Report Starts
Some Lively Fire Works.
The city council of Hood River levied
a ten-mill tax at the regular meeting
Monday night. This is expected to
raise about $.'500. Three millB of the
tax were designated for road purposes
and the balance for general purposes.
The assessable valuation of the proper
ty within the corporate limits of the
city of Hood River is $254,585.
The report of the police committee,
exhonerating Marshal ( Dinger from the
charges preferred against him
by a logger named Cooper, who was ar
rested on charges of drunkenness, start
Early moved the adoption of the re
port, when Mayes arose to state there
liad been nothing regular about the ex
amination held in the recorder's oflice
with the marshal and Cooper two weeks
ago. "I am not a kicker," remarked
Mayes, "but when anything is carried
on in a manner not considered straight
and legal, 1 shall interpose an objec
tion." l'rather insinuated there was politics
in the rase.
Mayes replied there was nothing of
the kind, and made some more serious
charges against the marshal, stating he
was intoxicated during the week and
nearly fell against a woman in the
l'rather was on his feet in a minute.
"We have hud all sorts of men to till
the position of marshal In this city, but
not one has shown himself perfect," he
asserted. "Hut of them all, Mr. Oling
or hits performed his duties far bettor
than anyone else. If there are charges
to be made against Mr. (dinger, let
someone make them in writing and be
brave enough to Bign his name. We
are not here to listen to the heresay of
itailey then asserted in no mild tones
that this man Cooper had used thismat
ter in the city campaign, and efforts
had been made to drag his (liuiley's)
name into the affair.
Mayor lllowers declared he was not
satisfied with the objection raised by
Mayes against the report. ''I am not
in favor of covering up crime," re
marked the city's chief executive, "but
I believe Mr. Mayes misunderstands
the matter. In this report, the commit
tee does find fault with the neg
ligence of the marshal in not
turning city money over more
promptly to the recorder, but re
garding the other matter charging him
with extorting money from prisoners,
the charge was found to be all bosh, as
the examination plainly indicated."
The question of adopting the report
was put and carried with the one nega
tive vote, that of Mayes.
A plat of Stranahan second addition
was refused because it had been record
ed by the county clerk Wfore being
accepted by the city of Hood River.
The finance committee stated that a
complete rep rt of the year's work
wouul be furnished for the next meet
ing of the council.
Mayes, for the streets and public
property committee reported that the
boat landing was now passable. He
had U'en informed, he said, by Mrs.
liutchelder, that tramps have demol
ished the pest house in the west end of
the city, and that the hobos make such
a racket there during the night as to
disturb Mrs. liatebelder at the Country
Club Inn. The tramps have broken alt
the dishes in the building, and smashed
all the furniture and have cut into the
floor for tire wood.
Marshal Olinger volunteered to see
after the property there, and to place
what tramps he caught on the streets.
Mayse also stated that P. F. Fonts
had asked for a sidewalk from River
Toy Chairs, Wagons, Pianos,
Buggies, Carts, etc.
street to the depot. As the walk will
accommodate the general public as well
as Mr. Fonts, the same was ordered
Mr. Karly for the sewer committee
reported th at a communication was on
hand from Attorney W. H. Wilson of
The Dalles, but that matters are no
nearer a solution than before:
Street Commissioner Cunning was
notified that a barn stood in the street
in the east end of the city, and that it
must be removed at once.
The vote of the recent cfty election
was canvassed, and certificates of elec
tion ordered Issued.
Claims against the city to the sum of
$145.43 were allowed as follows:

After the transaction of business, the
council adjourned to attend the first
monthly tea. Owing to the lateness of
the hour, the recorder was excused from
preparing Col. Hartley's $36 calf for
beef tea, but was ordered to do bo for
tho next meeting, in honor of the re
tiring councilman, Geo. I. 1 rather.
Card of Thanks.
The benefit entertainment Monday
evening was so liberally patronized that
the management feel it their duty to re
turn to the good Christian-spirited peo
ple of this city their sincere thanks for
their warm-hearted attendance. The
net receipts of the house were $1.75,
which was duly deposited in the bank
to Mrs. Kelley b credit.
We met several good saintly eouls the
following morning, who were not able
to gain admission to the hall (which is
altogether too small for Hood River's
charatable work). They handed ui a
bunch of regrets, and said they wonld
make it a point next time to get around
earlier. This helped some. Of course
these regrets will not go at the bank for
collateral, neither will the merchants
accept them for flour and bacon, but,
coming as they did from people of high
christian ideas, it tends to make us feel
that one can do Worse things than get
up charity entertainments.
So we have nothing but the kindliest
feeling for these regret pedlers, and do
sincerely hope when they have finished
their career m this sin-cursed world and
passed to that land where ice cream
and cold feet are unknown, there will
be erected to their honor a monument
that w ill reach to the moon. May they
soon need it.
