A large number of guests enjoyed
delightful sociable Monday night, at the
pleasant home ot Mr., and Mrs. S. iv
Bartmess, in Hood River, ' in honor of
the 80th anniversary of his father, Mr,
O. C. Bartmess, who has been honored
by these celebrations annually for
number 01 years., ihe evening was
pleasantly spent in reciting early reml
niscences. and a very nice supper was
served to the guests. .
Hon. J. W. Morton, of the Riverside
farm below town, joint representative
for Wasco and Sherman counties, left
last night for a brief business visit in
Portland. Mr. Morton desires the Sun
to correct the false report that he had
granted a right-of-way to the O. R. &
N . Co. to straighten their track running
through ins oUO-acre farm and orchard
He has not yet done so and is not likely
to, tor the amount of damage the com
pany offers $1500. '
The O. R. &N. has a large iceheuse to
move, a mile below Hood River, as the
structure stands directly on the line of
the new track to be laid in straightening
the curves at that point. The building
is 170 feet long and 80 feet wide, and the
work of moving will require the efforts
of 10 men, 80 jackscrews and 100 rollers
for four weeks, though the distance trav
ersed is not great,, and squaring the
structure around will be the most dim
cult part of the job. There are 170 tons
of ice in the building, which will have
to be moved with it. ..
The Hood River Fruit Growers' Union
is, with one exception, the oldest co
operative association for handling fruit
on the Pacific Coast. 1 This year it
shipped for the growers of the valley
twenty-five straight carloads of berries
in addition to local express shipments,
and distributed to the growers nearly
$30,000. The strawberry shipments of
the . Union in 1898 were about 4000
crates ; in 1897, thirteen cars ; in 1898,
thirty cars, and in 1899, twenty-five
cars, as above stated. The amount re
turned to growers this season per crate
is about $1.60. :
Attention is directed to the new "ad"
of the Hood River Trading Co. in this
issue. This is among the most import
ant enterprises in the valley . and this
season handled an enormous amount of
berries, besides manufacturing 17,000
strawberry crates. The officers are com;
prised of some of the most substantial
citizens of Wasco county, viz : N. C.
Evans, president, is one of our county
commissionrs ; G. R. Castner, was for
merly trainmaster at the union depot,
Jackson, -Mich.'; C. R. Bone, of the mer
cantile ilrm.of Bone & McDonald,, and
E. E. Savage, a thorough business man
who was formerly a newspaper pub
lisher in the East.
C. N. Luther, who recently came here
from Los Angeles, Cal., and traded for a
140-acre farm the old Berger place, '8
miles southwest of town, advertises
some horses for sale in this issue. Mr,
Luther is delighted with this section
and says that as a fruit and berry coun
try there is nothina in the world-famed
Southern California to compare with it
and that he ' knows of a number of
wealthy orchardists in California who
intend to come here to locate just as
soon as they can dispose of their prop
erty down there. He says the straw
berry growers of California all know
that our Hood River strawberries stand
shipping better than any in the world,
owing to our climate being better
adapted for the raising of them, and
that is why many of them are anxious
to come here to locate.
.E-dwin A. Henderson, son of . our
worthy townsman, Attorney John Le-
land Henderson, has enlisted in the U.
Army. His address is "Care Capt,
Geo. W. Green, Company K, 39th TJ. S,
V., Vancouver, Wash." ' His father has
just returned from a visit to the yOung
man, who sent his regards to his Hood
River friends, and would be glad to hear
from any of them. His great-grandfather,
John Henderson, then U. S.
Senator from Mississippi, was the head
and front of the Cuban expedition under
Lopez in 1850, and his father holdB, in
Iadd & Tilton's bank, Portland, about
$300,000 of Cuban bonds, which were is
sued to Senator Henderson for the finan
cial aid extended by him to the Cuban
patriots. The Senator's wife's brother,
Mr. Fourniquet was shot with Lopez by
the Spaniards. No wonder that our
citizen and his boy are' red-hot expan
sionists. ' - -
A Model Garden. ;
A man might travel the world over
and not find a more luxuriant or beauti
ful garden farm than that of Mr. William
Ponn Watson, in the town of . Hood
River. It is the grandest sight imagina
ble to see his magnificent beds of celery,
cabbage, onions, tomatoes, and in fact
everything the heart could wish "for in
the line of vegetables. Within the last
few years Mr. Watson has been awarded
twenty medals and prizes at different
fairs and expositions throughout the
United States for the largest and finest
garden vegetables, grain, corn, berries
and fruit raised on his Hood River farm.
Besides the time lost in making these
exhibitions, Mr. Watson informs us
that he is out nearly $1000 cash, paid in
travel and other expenses, for which he
has had no benefit, except the satisfac
tion of advertising to the world the won
derful richness and advantages of Hood
River soil and climate. Last week he
sent, at his own expense, samplee of his
corn, celery and other garden truck to
the exposition in Portland. Surely he
deserves great credit for what he has
done towards advertising the resources
of Hood River valley. Recently he re
fused $1000 an acre for six acres of his

The salmon hatchery at the mouth of
Wind river, six miles above the Cascade
Locks, for which congress appropriated
$15,000, begins to present a very interest

weeks ago there was not a stick of tim
ber on the ground. The hatchery, now
is 40 x 60 feet, and which will be e
tended in 19UU to 40 x 100 teet, is com
pleted. Its present capacity is 10.000
000 eggs. The first eggs were placed in
the hatchery September 14, and Mr
Fallert has on hand at present about
2,000,000. . Salmon are very plentiful at
this point, and Mr. Fallert is making
about three catches a day. He has. al
ready two leads or traps in AVind river
and contemplates putting in another
immediately. The river is well supplied
with great boulders, therefore making it
