County prune grower, says that he is

in this opinion by the methods of a Cali

section. The buyer in question went
around quietly to the various growers
and told them that he needed a few car
loads of prunes to fill an order and that
in order to get the fruit he would pay an
advance of cent per pound on the
market price. He made the provision,
however, that all who wanted to get
this advanced price must mike contracts
within a limited time, when he will
stop buying. Mr. Shepard believes that
Californiuns cannot supply orders and
will have to buy from Oregon.

Despite the unusually low stage of ths
upper Willamette river, Salem continues
to enjoy a splendid steamboat service
with Portland. I his fact is dun to the
enterprise of the Oregon City Transpor
tation company, winch has succeeded
thus far in regularly following their river
schedule, its two steamers the Altona
and I'omona being able to run almost
on schedule time. The company is do
ing an enormous freight business and
with its combined freight and passenger
service is giving splenuio satisfaction.
For a time it was feared that this com
pany would be obliged to retire its
steamers from the river for the remain
der of the summer season, but it is
thought that boats will be able to con
tinue to run between that city and Port
land throughout the season, and main
tain the company's regular daily service
with the metropolis. The boats leave
Salem alternately, every day, at 7 o'clock
in the morning. - ; . , '

Ten years ago I earnestly advo

the water fall at Kails City is 120
foot higher than Independence, and
that a rcilrond from there to the

and lumber road it offers exception

to tho timber near there, beaHHtirei
mo that when the sale win consum

road. On account of tho panic of
181K$ his party did not buy tho road
so the project fell through.
A year or so later one of your
lending business men and capitul
ists came to mo and requested that
I go oit among the citiions of In
dependence and raiu a bonus for
the road amounting to something
like 112,000. 1 told him that if
certain individual would start the
list with a subscription of 12000, 1
would guarantee to raNe the rest of
the amount. I heard nothing more
about tho matter, so presume the
first subscription could not bo ob
If tho present plan contemplates
asking for help from tho citizens of
Independence I hope there will lie
a unity of sentiment in favor of the
road. It will be of more advant
age to the town than a county seat
or a court house. When that rail
road is completed it means a popu
lation in the hills west of Indc'pciid
enco of two or three thousand wage-
earners, and Iiulemndence as the
money center and dintributing
point. It will mean, that Indcioiid
enco will soon become a city of four
or five thousand people, and pro
perty that now is slow sale at 1(100
autl 200 a lot will then be worth
and reudv sale at fo(X) and $1000.
The location of Independence is
particularly favorable as tho termi
nus of a railroad from Falls City.
You have a transcontinental rail
roud system for shipment of lum
ber, also the river for shipment by
boat, or floating tho logs to an ex
tensive market down stream.
I wish the people of Independ
enco all success in this enterpruc
and hopo to hear of tho road being
built in a short time, I am not in
formed us ti'j who the promoters of
tho road may bn, nor of any of the
conditions, but 1 feel confident that
tho energetic citizens of Independ
ence will do their part towards en
couraging this road, if there are not
too many interested persons who
are unwilling to asuist in the pros

Hops In Oregon never had n bettor
prospect for a good crop of excellent
quality. This is the concensus of opin
ion, and there is scarcely a hop grower,
dt'ttler or expert that dissents from the
above statement. While it is true that
the crop will not he as large us that
grown some years, the hops promise to
he richer, and free from vermin, unless
unfavorable weather conditions should
Interfere. Many of tho largo yards are
in excellent condition, and the growers
are enthusiastic over the prospect. Lice
are few and far between, und the yards
that have been systematically sprayed
are entirely free from this pest that, in
the past, bus buen so disastrous to the
". . .....
This year's crop will be ready for the
pickers somewhat earlier than usual,
and it id likely that by September 6th
all yards will be alive with pickers har
vesting the rich golden burrs.
lucre is less contracting going on this
year than usual, growers appearing to
be determined to control their own
crops ns far us possible.
