Official Paper of Benton County.
The movement that has for its
purpose the eradication of diseases
that affect fruit and fruit trees will
doubtless meet with a hearty wel
come in Benton. Perhaps none
will be more pleased with the plan
than the orchardists themselves.
Diseased and intested as they are,
the fruit trees bring but a poor re
turn for their fruitage. Customers
are driven from consumption of the
fruit because it is not pleasant to
coquette with a worm while essay
ing to eat an apple. Less fruit is
consumed, and less money is paid
for it, by thousands upon thous
ands of dollars, than if the trees
were cared for and the product
made perfect, as is easily possible.
The loss falls on those who have
orchards; the gain to come from re
form of condition, goes solely to
The law governing the situation
is strict. It enforced, it will clear

and sickly trees. Then Willamette
apples will take their place, where
they belong, in the front rank with
other apples, and a great revenue
will pour in where now there is

Where Fighting is Thickest.
There Woman is Floods of
Literature in Equal Suffrage
The prettiest political fight that
ever took place in Oregon, is now
on. The battle is straight slugging
with no sparring for wind, and no
lying down to escape punishment.
The fighting is between those ex
cellent ladies favoring woman suff
rage and those opposing it. Though
the eleccion is more than five
months in the future bombardment
of the works on the two sides to
the contest, is incessent. If all
goes well and the ammunition does
not give out, every woman in the
state is likely to be involved in the
carnage on one side or the other be
fore election day. If so, the less
weighty issues the election days is
to decide, will pale into insignifi
cance before the Woman Suffrage
The fight on either side is led by
a powertul and brainy organization
of women. One is the "Oregon
Equal Suffrage Association" and
the other is the "Oregon State As
sociation Opposed to the Extension
of the Suffrage to "Women." The
names of the two organizations tell
the tale of what banner each side
flies. It is different from men-
there is no double-dealing, no back
ing and filling as is so often char
acteristic of the sterner sex in poli
tics and other affairs. Every issue
is clear cut as is the names of the
And both are fighting viciously
Showers ol literature are pouring
in on the newspapers from both
sides. Not infrequently, the same
mail brings matter from both. And
it is literature of the very first or
der. The arguments go to the mar
row' of the question on both sides,
and leave the reader always a re
cruit to that side of the question
whose literature he may have last
read. The outcome of the struggle
will be watched with interest, for
the battle is a hot one, as is always
" the case when Greek meets Greek,
or woman meets woman.
Wormy fruit cannot be sold in
the (Vrvallis market this autumn,
and thereafter. If displayed in the
markets for sale it will be con
demned and destroyed. Further
more infested fruit trees in Benton
county will have to be relieved of
the diseases that affect them, or
they too will be condemned and
destroyed. The law says that these
things must be done and an officer
has been appointed for the purpose
of seeing that the law is put into
effect. The way orchard owners
will have for avoiding these conse
quences is to spray their trees so
that the diseased conditions of both
fruit and trees will be removed.
The wormy apples can be elimin
ated almost entirely by spraying if
it is attempted. Last season 98
per cent of the fruit in the Meeker
orchard on College Hill was free
from worms, which means that only
two per cent or two apples out of
every 100 were affected. Spraying
did it. The treatment was under
the direction of Prof. Cordley, and
five aDplications were made. In
the years before spraying was re
sorted to, half the fruit in the or
chard was wormy.
Law Requires it
Ine entorcement 01 tne law re
quiring no affected fruit to be sold
and requiring diseased trees to be
either cured or cut down, is in the
hands of the fruit inspector of Ben-
toa county, and he is Prof. A. B
Cordley. He has no alternate but
to follow the law, and the law is
stringent. It specifies his duties,
and declares what must be done.
What the statute provides is to be
found below.
Codlin Moth and San Jose scale
are the most prevalent diseases,
Both affect the fruit, which means
that hereafter no fruit from such
trees can be sold in the local mark
et. Either is considered easy to
control. A good spraying of the
tree with lime sulphur-salt solu
tion between now and budding time
will control the latter for the sea
son, if not actually eradicate the
disease, though perhaps for the
latter, another spraying may be
necessary next year. A double ap
plication now is likely to be fairly
effective for eradication.
Can Eliminate Worms
Destruction 01 tne worms re
quires more labor. Four or five
applications of spray are required
to do a first class job. If followed
up in good shape, there is no
doubt but that the worms can be
controlled to such a degree that
there will not be as much as a five
per cent loss on their account
There is no doubt but by resort to
spraying, the increased amount of
marketable fruit will more than
make up the cost of spraying. Es
pecially will this be true the com
ing season, when wormy fruit will
not be allowed to be sold in the
market, and must be a loss.
As it is to be done in Benton, so
is it to be in all the Willamette val
ley counties. Fruit inspectors are
Kivine notice in all of them of the
requirements of the law. and of the
plan for strict enforcement. Pub'
He meetings nave been neia in
many of the counties, notably in
Polk. Yamhill. Washington and
elsewhere. The movement is gen
eral and it means that the old or
chards will have to be cleaned up
and be made healthy or they will
have to be destroyed.
It is believed that 90 per cent of
the fruit trees in Corvallis are affect
ed with San Jose scale. On such
trees as the old leaves of last season
still hang to, the scale is almost
sure to be found. The presence of
the leaves now means that the dis
ease was so manifest that there was
not enough vigor in the branch at
the proper season to shed the leaf
An ashy appearance on the limbs
is another sign of the presence of
scale. Two college students have
fitted themselves out with spraying
appliances and are to do spraying
as required, tor a consideration
This is one of the easiest, cheapest
and best ways to get the work done.
The boys will operate under the
direction of Prof. Cordley. The
law under which the new regula
tions are to'be applied is as follows:
Wnat the Law Says
Section 4185. It shall be the duty of
