A prominent London physician is out
with the statement that candy
is a sure preventative for consumption.
It will not take the average American
youth very long to take advantage of this
argument to secure an increase in the
appropriation for sweetmeats.
Not a few of the citizens of Marioa
county are up in arms and there is talk of
a general mass meeting to protest against
the tax levy as made by the county court.
Something similar to the protest that
went up, in this county last year with
reference to the assessment, which was
made on a full valuation.
Those who have not kept in close
touch with the active work the Hood
River people have been doing for years,
in way of advertising their valley as a
fruit producing section, wonder how they
have secured such a wide world reputa
tion. Their success is the result of con
stant and united action, never lettine an
0 1 opportunity pass by. To illustrate there
'6 j is now in session at Portland a meeting
of the Oregon Fruit Growers, along with
it being a display of Oregon fruit. Hood
River is there with 200 boxes nicely ar
ranged. The Willamette valley has ISO
boxes and only.a few from the other fruit
sections of the state. Hood River is al
ways in evidence at such gatherings.
Our readers will remember that Hood
River people were the life of the North
west Fruit Growers Association which
met io La Grande just one year ago.
There were more Hood River people here
than from any other section of the state.
They had steamers flying from the lapels
of their coats, Metals galore from victor
ies won in previous fruit displays.
Everyone in our city knew that Hood
River was on the map every minute of
the three days session. It is just such
work as this that has brot Hood River
before the public.
It is true they grow good fruit but it is
also true that the world would never have
known very much about it had not that
progressive community taken advantage
of every opportunity to . let the world
In eeason and out of season Hood
River is always exploiting the productive
ness of their goil. They have succeeded
and they deserve success. Furthermore
what has been accomplished by this com
munity can be accomplished by any other
fruit growing section of the state by
similar methods It will require years
bat we must rememoer 'that Hood River
did not jump to the front in any one sea
son. It required many.

A convention of the assessors of the
slate is in session this week at Portland.
They are in favor of taking the tax col
lecting department away from the sLeriff
and giving it to the assessors. If a change
is to be made there is some merit in their
contention. The assessor's information
secured in making the assessment would
be of assistance in collecting the same.

to follow closely the lines of the Federal
law. A commission endowed with proper
power would be of great advantage to
every state in the Northwest. Without
power they would simply be a burden to
the tax payers.
A number of counties in the state for
sevi ral years have held successful poul-
shows. The idea has been suggested i
this county at various times. An exhibi
tion of this kind would doubtless prove a
revelation to a great majority of our
people as we have many fine blooded
fowls, many more than one would sup
pose without giving the subject investiga
tion. The poultry business of this county
is the means of no small revenue and is
capable of being extended. A poultry
exhibition would have the affeot of calling
attention to the advantages of extensive
poultry raising in this county.
