Mr. Ruef pleads guilty. That is
'What his efforts to block official in
quiry into the San Francisco grafts
means. That city and its people
have been plundered. Public
franchises have been bartered away
Sffhd the money put in private pock
ets. The liquor business, the build
ing business, the demi-monde busi
ness and every other business in
that unhappy town have been stood
up and ma3e to share by official
dom. A public trust, seized under
the name of labor and reform, be
came a private snap. The badge
of office was the license to plunder.
The certificate of election was the
commission for piracy and free
booting. Poor men who got office
became suddenly rich. Ruef and
his creature, the myth mayor,
led the way and the rest of the
gang followed in their wake. That
their police force was in collusion
with thugs, burglars and highway
men is asserted. It is not unlike
ly. All this was practically admitted
by Ruef when he sought ' to block
the way for court inquiry into con
ditions. It was admitted by the
acting mayor when he tried to de
pose the district attorney who with
Mr. Heney is moving to investi
gate. It was admitted by the su
perviEors when thev endorsed the
mayor's pction. :
Jf all these were innocent, they
would court investigation not at
tempt to block it. Their objection
to scrutiny is potent evidence of
their rottenness, for it is the duty
of a public official to keep public
acts and public records wide open
to the salary-paying public. As
though the horror of last April
were not enough her official thieves
have sacked the unhappy town by
the Golden Gate. In his own good
time, Mr. Heney will make all this
very . clear, especially since . Mr.
Ruef and his creatures in their
frenzy are aiding, 1 not hindering
Quality of 1906 Wheat as Compared
With That of Last Season.
Local mills recently began to
grind new wheat, and a , reliable
statement is that it is much superior
to that of many former years. In a
number of tests made it was found
that the new wheat carries fully 10
per cent more gluten than the cer
eal of last'year. While An that of
19Q5 tbeJjluVen-; test- ran lrom 4 to
5 sr cent,! this' season it carries
fujly 15 per cent, which is.equal to
many varieties of. wheat s grown in
Eastern Oregon. y This excellent
showing is due to the very favbr
ableclimatic conditions, and the
valley product will again stand at
the nead as a general purpose flour.
The conclusion is that for pastry
and bread making, the excellent
quality of the valley wheat this sea
son will allow everyone however
fastidious, to be satisfied with bak
ing from the home flour.

Willamette Valley Apples The Price
Paid Oregon Goat Land Worth
$100 per Acre.
There is land in the Willamette
valley i serving now as goat and
sheep pasture that ought to be sell
ing for $ioo an acre. It is worth
that figure and more when applied
to the right purpose. Ultimately,
it will be selling at such prices
and be in demand. Hood River
land used to sell for $15 or ; $20 an
acre. Comparatively speaking
that was only a few years ago. Now
it can hardly be bought at any fig
ure. Five hundred an acre is what
some owners ask for it. A couple
of hundred an acre is not consid
ered a stiff figure. .The jump in
its value is, as all know, because
it was turned to apple growing and
intelligently directed effort has
demonstrated that the apple busi
ness is pron table. Apple growers
in that community are getting rich.
The apples in a Willamette val
ley orchard sold the other day at
$1.25 a bushel in the orchard. All
the grower had to do was to pick
and sort them. , He didn't pack
them. He didn t furnish the box
es. He didn't do anything, but
grow, pick and sort the fruit. , He
sold io, 000 boxes at that price,
The apples were mainly Spitzen
bergs. They were bought by a
Hood River dealer. Thev are to
be shipped to Hood River where
they will be packed according to the
Hood River way of doing such
things, which is the correct way.
Then they will probably be ship
ped East or to London and sold
under the Hood River name arid
bring a big profit to the Hood Riv
er packer
The foregoing incident is explarr
ation of why there is Willamette
valley land going to goats that
ought to be bringing Sioo an acre
and more. Much of the goat past
ure is particularly favorable to the
growth of apples. The slopes 'of
of the foothills of the Cascade and
Coast ranges is the perfect apple
region. A deep soil, well drained
by nature, is the correct site. With
Hood River apples going at $3
box and bought the world over,
and with Hood River packers buy
ing Willamette apples at $1.25 and
shipping them under Hood River
brands for the sake of the profit
to be made, the true story of the
opportunity for orchards and or
charding in Willamette is told,
When it is undertaken on correct
principles and directed by intelli
gent effort the goat land will be
come orchard land. When that
happens the Willamette valley will
be fringed with foot bill orchards
arid well-to-do orehardists and the
picture will be one of prosperity
arid contentment.
.; That Willametteland will produce
asgood apples as Hood River is cer
tain. That is the 1 opinion 6f an
apple expert who knows. ''Hood
River men " buying and shipping
Willamette apples proves it. That
established, the question becomes
one of finding men ready to engage
in the industry.' The ver-populat-ed
East is full of such." They are
longing lor just such an opportun
ity as the Willamette foothills offer.
They -would be eager settlers and
eager huyers of the goat land if
they were informed as to the real
tacts. And doubtless many a Wil
lamette landowner, were he con
vinced of the real truth, as here set
forth would be 1 quick to convert
his brush land into a thrifty, well
kept and profitable apple orchard.
The kind of land required for the
purpo- e must have three essentials.
That is what an appie expert says
He has studied the business
watched its progress in Oregon for
10 years. He says:
"Three things are essential in lo
cating an orchard. 1 st, good soil:
2nd, good water , drainage; 3rd,
good air drainage.
As to soil, almost any good wheat
land is good apple land. Not that
apples would do well on wheat
land but only the best and some
what elevated and rolling. Prob
ably the best orchards in the valley
are to be found on the rolling lands
of Yamhill and other counties. The
future will most likely show ' that
the best orchard sites will be on the
slopes of the foothills of the Cas
cades and Coast ranges, provided
that in selecting the locations there
is care to determine that the soil
is rot underlaid with rock, grav
el or hardpan at a depth of less
than 10 or 12 feet.
"The apple needs a deep loamy
soil, preferably of a clay nature.
Some of the best orchards, it is true,
are growing on bottom lands but
the apples are not as good in "keep
ing quality as those from the heav
ier soils. , Practically all the origin
al oak and fir lands will make good
apple lands, provided the soil be
deep and the surface reasonably
light, the latter being important
for economical working of the or
chard. The Wa!do hill land in
Marion county is an ideal apple re-
gion. It is likely that ; the Bell- I
fountain slopes in Benton county
are eqally well adapted, and the
same is probably true of the coun
try about Wren.
"As to the water drainage, that
means that land should be natural
ly well drained. It should be land
in which the water table is low.
As has been well expressed. an
apple abhors wet feet.' Satisfact
oty air drainage is equally import
ant. It is important that the fold
air which settles to the lower lev
els should be permitted , to escape;
for this reason an orchard should
not be located in a pocket-like site,
but rather on higher rolling
An old Soldier Walks into Corvallis
Penniless and HI. j.
Saturday evening an aged man
in a pitiable physical condition ap
plied to Chief Lane for a night's
lodging, stating that he was an old
io'.dier. He rehearsed a sad story
of misfortune, whereupon the of
ficer arranged for his comfort tem
porarily at the Occidental hotel.
According to the stranger's state
ment, his name is James Robinson.
He enlisted with the Eighth Regi
ment of Kansas, when he was 21
years of age, serving four years in
the rebellion. In late years his
occupation was sheep herding in
Eastern Oregon and Idaho, and one
dark night as he gathered his flock
he fell from a rim rock and sus
tained serious injury in the way of
a severe rupture of the abdominal
walls; At that time he had $1000
saved up, but at the end of a few
weeks in a Salt Lake hospital he
came out $50 in debt - and very
slightly improved in physical con
dition. For some time he had
worked about Prineville where he
has friends. He carLe to the Wil
lamette valley; where he thought
tne climate would be more agree
able to him, and where he hoped to
secure light work which would give
him support. Mr. Robinson states
that when he arrived at Albany he
was out of funds, and the prospect
for work there was discouraging.
From Albany he traveled on foot to
Corvallis and by the time he reach
ed this city he was wholly prostrat
ed. Hence his application for
Mr. Robinson stated that he did
not wish to apply to any member
of the G. A. R. as he had left his
discharge papers among his effects
at Prineville. He did not wash to
go to the Soldiers home because
under ordinary conditions he could
support himself. '
On Sunday Chief Lane took the
old man to Dr. Pernot for examin
ation to determine whether or not
Robinson's claims as to his condi
tion were genuine, and the doctor
found him suffering frcm the dis
ability indicated. ;'. It was plainly a
case calling for charity, and The
subject was laid belore the county
judge and commissioners. In their
judgment the best tiling to be done
under the circumstances was to re
turn the unfortunate man to Prine
ville, where he has friends and, ac
cordingly, transportation to that
point was provided by the county.
Three months ago Mr. Robinson
applied for a pension, and if his
statement as to his service be true,
there can be no doubt as the chan
ces of its allowance.
