Nick (iil)son, head of the tilbson
Fruit Co. of Chicago, and one of the
best known frultmen In thecouutry,
whs here last week for his first peep
at the valley. Mr. Gibson was ac
companied by YV. S. Michael, who
has represented the (ilbson Company
ou the coast for several years and
who is an old campaigner In the
fruit business. Gibson did not buy
any apples at Hood Klver, although
he Is anxious to get a slice of fbe fine
fruit that w 111 be shipped out of here
this fall. However, If there Is any to
be had that way, he wants It on
consignment. Last year the Gibson
company, which tins for a number of
years baud led the majority of the
Wenatchee product, did not have
any too profitable a season, and is
therefore somewhat wary about
placing coin In advance of the sea
son. The veteran fruit man was
taken about the valley by C. H.
Sproat, and also visited with the
Van Horn family, with whom he Is
well uctiuulu ted. .
Chas. M. Simons, a native of Glas

firm of .Simons, Shuttlewortb A
French, apple Importers, with
branch houses In New York, London.
Liverpool aud Glasgow, was here
for a day last week with W. M. 1
French, their New York representa
tive. Heretofore Mr. Shuttlewortb,
who Is quite well kuown here, has
covered the Amerlcnn territory for
the firm, but this year,- owing to
sickness, was unable to come. Being
his first trip In the laud of the free
and the home of the brave, Mr.
Simons wns very much Interested In
everything he saw. A tour of the
valley under the escort of J. H. Hell
brouner and Truman Butler pleased
him mightily, although the smoke
prevented htm from seeing thecouu
try to Its liest advantage. This, he
stated, was not only the case here,
but elsewhere In the Northwest
where the forest fires are raging.
Mr. Simons Is a keen observer ami
an Interesting talker. He has apent
several years of his life In the fruit
districts of Spain and France, and
also visited India. His business has
brought him Into contact with the
fruits of the world. America, he be
lieves. Is just In Its Infancy. He
marvels at what the I'nlted States
will lie a century hence, and has
nothing but admiration for tin
country and Its people. Mr. French,
who has lieen here several times, Is
acting as pilot, nnd before returning
to F.ngland he and Mr. Simons will
visit all the Northwest fruit sections
mercantile pursuits there until IVM,
when he was elected county auditor
and served in this capacity for six
years. At the end of his term of of
fice he removed to Crookston, Minn., j
where he lived until VM'2, when he!
went to Minneapolis to take a pos. j
tlon on the Board of Grain Apeals, I
to which he was appointed by the!
governor. After filling this office
for two years, he came to Hood
Biver, arriving here in V.M, and re-;
shied lu re until last May, when be j
sold his holdings aud moved to his
late home at Oak (Jrove. !
In addition to his wife ami sister, H
Mr. Glcasou Is survived by two
daughters, Mr. C. H. Sletton of this
city and Miss Nettle Gieason, residing
with her mother.
Mr. (ileasou was a man of more
than unusual abilities, a deep reader!
and a close student of national and
state affairs. During his life he was
identified with men of prominence
and wielded considerable Influence lu
the political and business affairs of
Minnesota. After successfully devel
oping an orchard here, h" sold It at
a profitable figure and had retired
from an active life.
