MAYOR CARLL'S VISIONARY PIC
TURE OF A FUTURE
7TH ST. TO FALLS VIEW
Spaaks on Ih Thema "Baautlfylng
Our City" to a Large Audi
ones at Congregational
The meeting last Sunday evening
at the Congrogntlonal church In the
interest of a "Heltr Oregon City,"
was largely attended, many moo be
ing prcaont. The main addreas of
the evening waa given by the Mayor,
Dr. Carll. He spoke upon the theme,
"beautifying our city." Ho thought
that the Drat thing we should do
would be to make this a clean city. It
la only a clean city that la boalthy
city. Empty tin cana In the alleys,
and rubbish about yard, and garb
age here and there contribute to the
sprrsd of disease and are eyesores
to every one. Ho also advocated the
taking down of fences about our
home, and making every atreet look
like a park. The Village Improvement
Boclctica of the East did a good work
along these lines, and a little united
effort on the part of our citizens
would result In making our city at
tractive, even more attractive than
It la already. He thought It would be
posslblo to make a most notable and
beautiful driveway, starting from the
head of Seventh street, along the edge
of the bluff to the South end road,
and from there back along the edge
of Falla View; It would be a most pic
turesque boulevard, and could be easi
ly worked out. If we did a Utile year
by year. He thought we had a
chance here of making the city aome-
what famous for Its scenery If we
took advantage of some of the nat
ural advantage. Other speakers In
the audience brought out Iden along
this and other lines. The meeting
was one of considerable interest, and
was successful In creating a desire
to render our city much more at
tractive. Next Sunday Superintendent
Gary and Mr. Dyo take up the public
school question and will discuss how
our schools muy bo mndo more of-
ftctlve. The musical service at the
church was very pleasant.

CANBY CANAL AND IRRIGATION
COMPANY COMMENCES TO
SOIL AT CANBY FERTILE
R. Cummlng, Prominent Canby
Farmer, Experiments by
The thriving little town of Canby
Is coming to the front. Not only has
It the county fair, but there Is now
a projoct on foot to have over 6000
acres of some of the richest farm land
In the Northwest Irrigated. The Can
by Canal Company, which was re
cently organized for the purpose of
Irrigating this land, has leased the
building belonging to Mrs. Anna
Knight opposite the Southern Pacific
depot at Canby. This will be used by
the company as an office, and will
be renovated throughout The com
pany will keep on band a big supply
of reading matter Including farm Jour
nals, stock and poultry journals, all
kinds of reading matter pertaining to
the farm which will Interest the fann
ers. By Installing this watering system
through the land In the southern part
of the county, it will be a great bene
fit to the land owners, and will tend
to Increase the value of the land. The
soil In this part of the county Is well
adapted to farming, and can produce
fruits and vegetable In abundance.
The farm of A. R. Cummlngs, situ
ated about one mile from the busi
ness section of the town, Is one of
the finest farms In the county. Mr.
Cummlngs takes an Interest In his
farm, and by bis constant attention be
has made It profitable. He Is con
sidered to be one of the most suc
cessful farmers In the county. His
0-acre farm Is all under cultivation,
every foot of ground being pat to use.
Last year the owner shipped over nine
tons of rhubarb to Davenport &
Thompson, the commission merchants
of Portland, netting him $450. Many
of the merchants of Seattle ordered
from Mr. Cummlngs, but be was un
able to meet the large demand. Last
fall Mr. Cummlngs erected on his
place a building, which has been
used for forcing the robts of rhubarb.
The building Is heated, and has proved
beneficial In forcing these roots. Mr.
Cummlngs has several acres In straw
berries and watermelons, and these
are eagerly sought for when In sea
son by the commission merchants of
the metropolis. Mr. Cummlngs has
arranged with the Canby Canal Com
pany for the Installing of an Irrigat
ing plant on his farm, and this will
be used as a demonstration to show
what can be done with the land In
this section under Irrigation. The Ir
rigation system will be installed In
the early fall. .
F. Hampton, of Canby. Is another
man who has made farming a success
In Clackamas county, and who in
tends tohave his land Irrigated as
soon as the company Is operating the
watering system. Mr. Hampton's farm
is located at the head of C street
overlooking the town of Canby. Mr.
Hampton's orchard containing over
3000 fruit trees, are each year gone
ovor and carefully sprayed and prun
ed. On his place Is a fruit dryer with
a capacity of 550 bushels. Last year
the output of the dryer was over four
tons of prunes, although the prune
crop was short. Mr. Hampton is al
so engaged in the culture of straw
berries. Mr. Hampton has the repu
tation of raising some of the finest
strawberries that are shipped to the
markets. It was on Canby Fraltie
where the first wild strawberries were
picked, aud during the time when the
country was full of Indians, these peo
ple feasted on the luscious fault of
the Canby Prairie. H. E. and Caleb
Cross, of this city, well remember the
time they picked the strawberries
when residents of that section. Mr.
Cross says that the people came for
miles to gnther the berries. Those
having gone into the strawberry cul
ture In Canby have met with success,
as no other soli Is more adapted to
the raising of berries. Mr. Hampton
has on his place the Wilson and
Clark Seedling varieties, having sev
eral acres of these. R. S. Coe and F.
Rath are also among the prominent
strawberry growers of Canby. who are
meet Ins with success In the culture
of berries. '
The soil of the Canby Prairie la
well adapted tp the watermelon In
dustry. M. E. Lee, of Portland, has
purchased 60 acres of the Walt tract,
and Is having tho same plowed, which
will be put to melons. ' When these
melons are In season there will be
about five carloads shipped from Can
by each day.
There is more produce shipped out
of Canby than any city south of Port
land and north of Aabland. There
are three large commission houses
In Canby, and large shipments of po
tatoes, onions and produce are bought
by the California markets.
The Canal Company is to place Its
land Into five acre tracts and will be
sold at from $100 to $150 per acre.
The water rights are to be perpetual,
and the annual maintenance fee will
not exceed $1.50 per acre. The amount
of water furnished will be sufficient
to cover each acre two feet deep dur
ing the months of June, July, August
The men, who have charge of the ir
rigating, state that the Canby prai
rie Is the most Ideal spot for irrigat
ing on the globe, for the principal
reaaon that it Is of a rich, sandy
loam of great depth, having a very
deep gravel sub-drainage. The depth
of the soil is from 'four to 40 feet.
Malarial and typhoid fevers are un
known In this part of the county.
Mr. Lindsey, who has been in Can
by for several months with his eleven
race horses training on the race
track at the county fair grounds, has
acknowledged that this Is the best
track on the Pacific Coast for winter
training, even the racetracks la Cal
ifornia, ' where he hat wintered bis
horses heretofore do not compare with
this. Mr. Lindsey expects to leave
Canby with his horses in April for
Canada, and from there will go to
Texas. The horses be has at Canby
are pacers and trotters.
The Canby Canal Company will
erect an electric light plant In Canby.
The power is at present furnished by
the Aurora Electric Light Company.
The officers of the Canal Company are
as follows; President, W, B. Moores;
vice-president, H. W. Westbrook; sec
retary and treasurer, M. J. Lee; en
gineer, J. J. Hill. Miss Lee, of Canby,
has accepted a position as stenograph
er and commenced her duties Mon
The Canal 'Company began survey
ing for the irrigating plant Wednesday
morning with a force of men, and the
work will be pushed as rapidly as
possible. The Company expects to
be In operation in the early fall.

eral superintendent of the Pacific
Coast Rescue and Protective Society,

afternoon at 3 o'clock. Mr. McLaren
spoke In the interest of the goofl work
that this society is doing in Portland,

BEST TIME ,
COUNTY FRUIT INSPECTOR LEWIS
WRITES ON THE CARE
MAKE YOUR SOLUTION
Will Rigidly Enforce the. Law As to
Spraying snd Pruning Infested
Trees, and Cutting Down
(Editor Enterprise.) I would like a
little space In your valuable paper to
repeat, and emphasize If possible,
much that has been said In regard to
cleaning up old and Infested orch
aris. The next 20 'or 30 days will
be the very best time possible to ap
ply the lime and sulphur solution m
dormant spray. It may be used at
IU full strength till the buds are
nearly open, especially on . apples,
without fear of Injury. There are sev
eral brands of the prepared solution
that will prove satisfactory If used
al the rate of 1 gallon of solution to
11 gallons of water making a 12 gal
lon mixture, or you can make it at
home If preferred, nslng at the rate
of 15 pounds quicklime and 15 pounds
flowers of sulphur to 50 gallons of
water. Slake the lime in a tank or
kettle, add the sulphur and boil at
least 1 hour. , I have endeavored to
visit nearly every section of the coun
ty, making suggestions, advising and
serving notices of disinfection. This
matter of better fruit and better meth
ods of packing, marketing and care
of orchards, has been talked of and
written about, and discussed, till It
seems to me there can be no excuse
for ignorance about the matter, and
yet it Is often reported to me that
some one will say "I don't know and
I won't spray unless I am compelled
to do so." That Is not at all the
proper thing to say or do, and be
sides it may prove expensive, for I
assure yon, one and all, that this
work can be done much more cheap
ly if done yourself, than if it should
have to be done under the direction
of the fruit Inspector. It isn't practi
cal or reasonable that the Inspector
should visit every individual in the
County; he could hardly do so If he
gave his whole time to the work. It
would incur unnecessary expense and
Is not called for. I will gladly visit
any Individual or community where I
am wanted, or needed if not wanted.
and give advice or serve notice if I
consider it advisable, at any time. The
law Is plain and specific In the mat
ter. In Judge McBride's charge to
the jury in the Sellwood-Reid case he
told them that there were but three
points for them to consider. First;
had proper notice been given; sec
ond, were the trees infected; third,
had the work of disinfection been done
as directed. The decision In that cose
had a very salutary effect, and I had
hoped It might never be necessary to
take such drastic measures as were
used In that case aj-ain, but I fear It
will be wise and best for all that the
law be enforced to the letter In one
or two aggravated cases in the coun
ty this spring. Of one thing I'want
to assure theV, public, both the fruit
grower and the consumer, that I shall
spend more time and watch more
closely, the sale of Infected fruit,
wormy, scaly or scabby, than I ever
have before and wll! prevent the traf
fic in such fruit In my jurisdiction if
In my power, the coming year. Hop
ing that a word to the wise will be
sufficient, in this case at least, I am
Very respectfully yours,
A. J. LEWIS,
Fruit Inscpector Clackamas County.
