Fire destroyes the Wilcox
residence near ball park.
Just at noon Thursday, fire was dis­
covered in the roof of the house near
the ball park occupied by Mr. Wilcox.
The alarm was sounded and although
quickly responded to, it was soon dis­
covered that it was impossible to save
the building and efforts were directed
to securing the contents of the dwell­
ing and preventing the fire spreading
to adjacent buildings.
Many willing hands made quick
work possible and most of the house­
hold goods were soon carried to a place
of safety.
The hose belonging to the fire com­
pany bursted at the very time it was
most needed, but men with buckets
sprang into line and assis ted in check­
ing the furthe.' progress of the flames.
A Hard Cider Case.
Quite a little stir has been caused
this week by the report that hard c der
w as being sold at the Grants Pass can­
nery, as a result of which, it is said, a
number of fellows loaded with this
kind of juice, were making things very
interesting at certain places on 6th bt.
Chief of Police McLane stated that for
some time he could not tell where they
were securing the stuff, but upon in­
terviewing the drunks, he became con­
vinced by their statements that they
were getting drunk on hard cider pro­
cured at the cannery. Mr. McLane
said he notified some of the officials of
the cannery, and he states that even
after he had informed them the hard
cider continued to be sold, and a war­
rant was issued by Police judge George
W. Colvig, for the arrest of Fred
Wichman, in charge as watchman at
the cannery. Outlook.

Veterans and Families Enjoying
Themselves in Annual Re-Union--
Notable Addresses Made by Local
and Visiting Orators, Etc.
The annual re-union of the Soldiers’ and Sailors’
Association was held in Ulrich’s grove in the suburbs of
this city this week.
Early Monday morning the veterans with their fam­
ilies, began to arrive by train and private conveyances,
the visitors continuing to come until the woods at the
grove were literally “full of them.” As announced last
week, Monday was devoted to locating quarters, making
camp, etc.
Tuesday evening at 7:30 a large and attentive
audience gathered around the speaker’s platform and was
called to order by County School Superintendent Wells,
who in a few well chosen remarks introduced the orator
of the evening, Hon. B. F. Mulkey, who in his usual
happy manner delivered a very appropriate and entertain­
ing address, reviewing briefly the history of our country
from the time of the Revolution when the population of
our country was 3,000,000, up to the present time when
we number more than ninety millions. The speaker re­
ferred to the different wars, stating that the preservation
of our country and the progress it has made is largely due
to these veterans and their comrades, men who left their
homes and firesides at the call of their country—and of
whom many never returned.
In conclusion, the speaker welcomed «luded the day’s festivities. As we

Portland, Ore., Sept. 16,(Special) -
Vacant lands of the state are being
settled in a way that has never before
been equalled. A private land com­
pany is opening up a huge tract around
Lakeview, the purchasers of contracts
now being on hand there in large num­
bers to take part in the drawing. On
September 15th the fall colonist move­
ment from the east started, when
thousands of new settlers will reach
the state to make their permanent
homes here.
The vacant wheat lands of Central
Oregon are being filled up at an un-
precedented rate, the coming of rail­
roads up the Deschutes being the cause
of a big boom in wheat growing in that
great undeveloped country. During
the past week a record trip was made
into the vacant lands about Bend by a
party of settlers who went overland by
auto from Corvallis. The trip was
made from Corvallis to Bend, 150 miles,
in one day and the next morning mem­
bers of the party filed on 320 acre
homesteads near Bend and will engage
in wheat growing. A tract of land of
250,000 acres in that district has just
been included in the new 320-acre
homestead law and is proving very at­
tractive to settlers.
New members it the Oregon De­
velopment League were enrolled this
week when the commercial bodies of
Milwaukie, Bend, Halfway, Silverton,
and Lents joined the state organiza­
tion. Live boosters in those cities have
organized clubs whose sole object is to
further the interests of their commun­
ity and by co-operation with the other
state bodies to advance the material
prosperity of al) Oregon.
What is said to be the highest price
ever paid for an apple crop anywhere
has just been closed for the Hood
River and Mosier Valley yields. J.^A.
Stemhardt, of the fruit-buying firm of
Steinhardt & Kelly, New York City,
visited both districts the past week
and contracted for the entire yield of
the Mosier and Hood River valleys at
better than $2.50 per box. As the
total crop will run up to about 150 car­
loads, the contract juat made will put
more than $200,000 into the pockets of
apple growers in these two districts.
Postmaster-General Hitchcock will
be in Portland September 22 and 23,
these two dates having been selected
for the annual meeting of the Presi­
dential Postmasters' Association in
this state. Mr. Hitchcock will attend
the sessions and while here will be en­
tertained at luncheon by the Portland
Commercial Club.
