Hood River The spplo picking has come to an end in Hood Kiver vauey for the year 1909, and several crews are busy at present pacKing iu uu.v for market. A number of the larger growers have concluded their packing and their fruit has been hauled to the cold storage plant in the city, await ing shipment to 'ew York. The union is sending out several cars each day, consigned to Steinhardt & Kelly, who purchased the entire crop of fancy stock. The fancy Spitzenbergs were sold to the New York firm for $3.33 per box, and since this deal was made the Davidson Fruit company of this citv has paid as high as $3.50 per box for fancv Spitzenbergs. The fruit m Hood River valley this season has been of a higher standard than any marketed iu previous years. There has been a noticeable decrease in rust and other infections that mitigate in pro ducing a lower grade of apples. Thei season's profit is very satisfactory, not withstanding the tact tbat tbe crop was cut a little short. TROOPS ARE CALLED. Violence Feared at Cherry, 111., When Dead Are Recovered. Cherry, 111., Nov. 17. Troops have been called to prevent any untoward demonstration at the St. Paul coal mine when bodies of the 300 men entombed by Saturday's catastrophe are brought to the surface. Sheriff Skoglund, ot Bureau county, with authority from State's Attorney Eckhart, telegraphed to Springfield late .yesterday, asking Governor Deneen to send several com panies of state militia. So far no vio lence has been displayed and State's Attorney Eckhart hopes by the pres ence of a small guard to prevent any ill-advised move on the part of tbe miners, whose feelings have been wrought up by the loss of their com ra'les. When the bodies will be brought to the surface is doubtful. Xone of the oflicials believe any of the 300 en tombed men are alive. I he subter ranean fires yesterday were more in tense than when tho men were en trapped and no efforts could be made to enter the mine. Fire Chief lioran, of Chicago, arrived with a supply of hose and chemical fire extinguishers. The seal over the mouth of the shaft was perforated and it was intended to force water and chemicals down through pipes. A ther mometer in the sand on top of the seal showed a temperature of 110 degrees, indicating that heat in the interior of the mine was itense. Chief Horan shook his head. "It's no use," he said, "to lift the lid, as it would mean that the whole mine would blaze up and there would no possibility of recovering even bodies. The coal deposits would take fire and the timber supports wouid crumble. Perhaps another shaft will have to be dug to recover the remains of the men."

The president has approved the recommendation of the joint army and navy board for making Pearl harbor, In the Hawaiian Islands, the greatest naval station in the Pacific. In doing this, it was con sidered that a temporary naval station only would be constructed at Olongapo, and that the proposed improvement in Manila harbor would be abandoned. This will leave the protection of the ports to the army. The determination to minimize the fortification, in the Philippines and to make I'eurl harbor a great naval sta tion was not because of any intention of withdrawing American control from the islands. It was purofv strategical, it was said. For years a fierce contro versy has been waged as to whether tho principal fortification in the Phil ippines should be located at Olongapo or lavite. lue naval onicers favored Olongapo and tho army Manila bay. The big floating dock is now at Olon gapo, and under tbe present plan win be retained there. MAY DEFY PEOPLE.
