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 from here. 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. j&Jll 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. & N., in better shape (linn the fruit ran 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 evening. i Light refreshments were nicelv served by the management of the Favorite Oyster parlors. 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 ous pests. 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. Kvans.

CITY LEVIES A TEN-MILL TAX 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 ed sparks. 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 street. 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 anyone." 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 Wooden Toys. 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 built. 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: B. F. Rclieu, labor $ 3.75 Or. Lbr Co., lumber,, 3.87 Or. Lbr C, lumber 13.86 Recording deed co. elk 3.75 Marshal Olinger, salary 50.00 Norton & Smith, tin shingles 55 K, S.

Norton, labor 3.60 lirown, labor, 6.40 Wheeler, labor 4.50 danger and Hartley, labor 9.00 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. (iraml Christmas dinner at the Ho tel Waucoma. Mrs. ti. U Castner fell and dislocated her shoulder, Monday evening.

Editor Glacier:. A county division again? For 10 long years the division question has been asleep. Pray don t disturb it now. County division may be all right for the people in town, but it would be very hard for the farmers to pay the tax es and keep the town yes, keep the town. You will find many that will say that county division would be a detriment to the valley, more so to the bast Side. Let me tell you something I know to be a fact. The people at Cascade Locks would join with Multnomah county; so wtiat would De lettr I am with S. F. Blythe, E. L. Smith and Malcolm Moody, and closing will say, that with a new county we would be taxed to death. Old Wasco is good enough lot all ol us. J . t 11 illstrom. New Officers Eastern Star.

The debate by the High School Liter ary society last Friday afternoon was decided unanimously in favor of the "wets." The question turned on the issue whether Hood River would be better off without saloons Harold Hershner and Miss Mariorie Bakerwere the strong debaters for the winning side. In answer to the argument that sa loons had a bad influence on men, Har old Hershner sought to prove by the same logic that woman should be ' abol ished. "Didn't Eve have a bad influence on Adam in the Garden of Eden," went on the young speaker, "and has not Mrs Chad wick proven the ruin of a Cleveland banker and brought disgrace to the name of Carnegie? In the land fraud cases recently tried at Portland, two women were said to be at the bottom of the whole conspiracy. If we must abolish that which has a baneful in fluence on man, we must make no ex ceptions and include woman with the other evils of the day." Before such unimpeachable logic the judges, Mayor Blowers, Rev. Spight and Cecil Green, gave a unanimous de cision in the young man's favor. vt oman s sun rage will be the next subject for debate. By a decision of the members of the literary society, i i . . : 1 1 i f. i i i T uib ueimies win nerroiuir neiu in the evening, which will permit of a larger attendance.
