We had a pleasant call Friday evening
from Messrs. M. P. Isenberg and John
Donohue, two substantial farmers and
fruit growers from the Belmont neigh
borhood. Mr. Isenberg has been promi
nently identified with' republican poli
tics, and bears the distinction of being
the only man in the United States who
voluntarily resigned ' a fat government
position. During Harrison's adminis
tration Mr- Isenberg, a native of Penn
sylvania, was appointed special agent of
the land department, the " duties of
which kept him on the move almost
constantly in all of the states west of the
Mississippi. Becoming tired of being
absent from his family; and so much
travel, "he concluded to resign his posi
tion and locate in Hood River . valley
which he considers the finest garden
spot and most delightful climate in the
United States. , .
- Last week our type made it read that
owing to the rapid growth of the postr
office here, the office soon would doubt
less be raised from a fourth to a third-
class office, with $1000 a year salary
Our popular postmaster, Win. Yates,
informs us that it has already been
raised to a third-class office', with $1100
a year salary, the raise having been
made a couple of months ago. Doubt
less it will be soon raised to a presiden
tial office. ."
Wm. M. Stewart, of the wide-awake
mercantile firm of Rand & Stewart,
is not only a competent business man
but also a, pronounced disciple of Ike
Walton, the famous fisherman. In fact
Mr. Stew.art would rather miss a meal
any time than a chance to bag a few fine
salmon trout, and he spends a good deal
of time at this, his favorite amusement.
The other day he caught such a whol
loper at the bridge over Hood river, five
miles south of town, that the strain in
pulling him out of the water made Billy
bow-legged. ' But he doesn't mind a lit
tle thing like that since he landed the
fish, which. weighed 18 pounds. , .
Deserves Heavy Damages. .
Hon. E. S. Joslyn of "Colorado Springs,
Colo., has been visiting this section of
the world for the past - week.; Mr. Jos
lyn is the pioneer settler " of White
Salmon, having moved there in the
spring of 1853. In the fall of 1855 the
idiotic meddling of a set of military
dough heads with the resident Indians
of the Klickitat tribe, wrought them up
to such a pitch of hostility that Mr.
Joslyn was obliged to move his family
to safer quarters. Early in the spring
of 1856 the savages burned his home and
buildings, and after the Cascade massa
cre the government took possession of
his farm, using it for three years as a
reservation, and almost completely de
stroying what the Indians had left. In
addition to the loss of his improvements
the Indians killed or drove off his live
stock, so that on his return at the end
of the government occupancy of his
farm, Mr. Joslyn found absolutely noth
ing left except a couple of log houses
built for the use of the agency. Not
only has the government refused to
make good the damage done by its dusky
wards, but has also refused to reimburse
him for the time they used his farm for
a reservation. ..
For over forty years Mr. Joslyn has
urged the justice of claims upon congress
without avail and now when all other
plans have failed he proposes to invoke
the strong arm of the law. During the
past few years he has watched with in
dignation the thousands of robber pen
sion claims that, having been refused
recognition by the pension bureau,
were rushed through congress, while the
righteous claim of a man who dared to
trust himself far beyond the pale of
civilization is thrust aside. After en
during all the dangers and privations of.
pioneer life he cannot obtain a paltry
rental of his home that the government
took from him by force. i
Mr. Joslyn is a well preserved man of
74 years of age and has hosts of friends
who wish him every success in his en
deavor to obtain justice. ' . ;
A Great Industry. "
One of the greatest industries in Hood
River valley is the Davidson Fruit Co. ,
H. F. Davidson, "president, and A. P.
Bateham, secretary. During the busy
season, last spring for several months
over 100 aoys and girls were employed
in this ' great- canning establishment,
which is one of the largest in the state,
outside of Portland. They make their
own crates and boxes and furnish them
to fruit growers at cost. Next . season
they will enlarge their building and plant
to double its size and capacity and put
in a great deal more machinery. The
company owns a great deal of the finest
strawberry land in the country, besides
rents 20 acres from Dr. Adams, at the"
Paradise farm. They also do an enor
mous commission business.
The members of this company are all
progressive lousiness men, who under
stand ; their business thoroughly, the
president, H. F. Davidson, having been
one of the original incorporators of the
Hood River Fruit Growers' Union, for
which, he was secretary five years.
With such an institution right here at
home, which furnishes a market for all
kinds of products, at the highest cash
prices, it certainly is a great inducement
for the fruit and berry growers to go in
to the business on a larger scale.
. 'v Ilassalo Club. -

ganization in Hood River. It was got
