Th Applf Business Is the hisr hr.sines of Hooi: Kiver Val'ev. a:ul everything should U ordered to take a si: i n anil let the special go straight through. The scenery is sublimely jrranc and its conteiniilation carries the mind and imagination intoesthet it- fields where the pinions of thought are dipped into the em erald waters of nature's perfec tion that reflects the lieneticence of the divine: it is a beautifu thing to write about and talk about during the w inter. How es er, just now this season of the year, give the apple "special" clear track and let us consider a few salient facts. First -In the year 1910 when we had the big crop the apple growers of Hood River valley lost more than $100,000 because the shippers did not make better estimates early in the season of the quantity of apples they ha to place on the market for the grow ers of the valley later on. Second -Hood River apple growers as a whole are absolute ly dependent upon the local ship pers for the marketing of the crop in such a manner as will in sure the highest possible returns and maintain the strongest pos sible market. Therefore, give them all the information you have about your crop the minute you reach your conclusions. Ihird liood Kiver apples are a special product and must be marketed in a special manner, not on the open market at forced sale or auction as is commonly done with apples from other dis tricts. Fourth Wide awake shippers arrange their markets as early as possible in order to secure the benefit of the best trade but can not do this unless they have a good idea of the quantity of each variety they will have to handle, Growers get your preliminary estimates in the hands oi your shippers as quickly as possible. The Pavin? Question Is still a live issue with the cit izens of Hood River. 'The News receives all the exchanges of the live towns and cities in the state and northwest and the same question that confronts the citi zens of Hood River is being agi tated by many of the cities now contemplating paving their streets. There is no doubt a desire up on the part of many citizens to have the streets paved with oil bound macadam while a large per cent of the property holders favor some other more substan tial class of paving. We fail to find from our ex changes where other cities are very enthusiastic over the oil bound macadam. A course gravel bithulitic seems to be favored by many of the municipalities con templating paving. In any event the matter should be thoroughly investigated be fore any contracts are signed up. In the case of H-xh River the horse must Ik.' considered as the roads are sU-ep. and sanitation must not be overlooked. Speeding That ihxwJ Riser county has been vigilant in its effort to put an end to speeding upon the county roads is very apparent in the fact that a large number of auto drivers have been appre hended by the officers who have had in charge this work for the county. No doubt some of those arrest ed for the violation of the speed law have been aggravated cases. RejMirts come to this office that a rate of '.'.2 miles per hour was in effect w hile one of the drivers' u.is i assing a team and again that a speed of nearly -10 miles per hour was reached by this same driver on another occasion, Of course, this is sheer reckless- shall be muzzled and as a result ness and without rule or reason. , some of the citizens have advo Again. it is very probable that! rated the placing of the muzzle the larger number of those ar-1 around the body w hile others ad- rested are not reckless drivers, but that the invitation of a good stretch of macadam road with a clear coast presented such an en chanting opportunity to hurry home that the "chug wagon" was given a few extra drops of Rockefeller's buzz fluid that caused the inate machine to clip off a few extra miles. For the driver who unthought edly, perhaps, technically violat ed the state law in the operation of his machine there is every consideration but. for the reck less manipulator the public has no sympathy. Atchiaon Takes Stand If candidates, who are aspiring for public office, think that they can successfully run the gaunt let and not let the voters of the state know with which party they are affiliated they will fool themsflves most gloriously. This is a year of big issues and mighty consequences, politically. The entire program of commer cial and industrial interests of this country that have to do w ith the economics of the people, which in the last analysis means the manner of securing and the amounts to be secured of "bread and butter" is up for considera tion and revision at the hands of the several political parties de siring to be placed in power. Clyde B. Atchison, present member of the State Railroad Commission, was recently brought face to face with the question of where he stood, politically, and he met the issue honestly and squarely in announcing that he would be found loyal to the reg ular Republican party .and prin ciples. This has gained for him the respect and confidence of the voters. The other candidates for state, district and national offices had just as well fall into line and let the people know whether they are expecting to affiliate w ith the Republican, Democratic, Social istic, Independent or Bull Moose parties. In fact it would look better to get in the game early with an unambiguous announcement. Hood River county would like to hear from Selling and Sinnott. A Fruit Cannery Could be most successfully op erated in the Hood River vallev because of the unlimited amount of raw material at hand. Hood River is one of the largest green fruit markets in the state. A cannery would return thous ands of dollars annually to the fruit growers tf the valley in ex change for the berries, vege tables and apples that are now w asted each year. Many of the other sections of the state less favored than Hood iiver have been busy erecting canneries to save the products of vine and branch. We reprint herew ith the action of the Forest Grove Fruit Grow ers association last week that is id line with our contention: "The ijln-ctnr nf Hih I'orcBt inv? ruit ijrower' AHrforl.itiori have otnplftfil plana for t lit rr-ct lmi of n wo ami one-half ntnr.v liiillilinif. -1.1.x hi fi-ct, nu ifroiind rwriitl.v purrhaHPtl or u rnntifrr plant on (' Htrtt, nri'l w 111 Ix-Kin liniiii-dliit eriTtloti of th etruiM urn. 1 In in'v Imllillntf will lit riiplt't"''l thin yi-ar vlt!i t-iiimliiK in in 1. 1 1 1' -ry IriHtallnl. anil t tin iifHocla tloti will Ik pri-part'il to take care of all fruit ami Htnall U-rrl'-M irrown In thli ,. v hi n"t year.

" The city of Portland has pass I an ordinance providing for the muzzling of dogs and cats that run at large within the city i limits. However, it appears that the ordinance does not state how or w here the cats and canines vocate the tying of the wire cage to the tail. Wonder if they w ont pass an ordinance to dehorn the bull moosers. The city engineer at The Dalles estimated that the new proposed sew er system for that city would cost $90,000 and accordingly the city advertised a bond issue for this amount. However, a Fort land firm offers to do the work for $50,000. The council will now backtrack and advertise for the sale of a smaller bond issue, Good business, alright, even if it is a big bobble. "The Guardians of the Colum bia." companion volume to "The Mountain That Was God," writ ten and illustrated by John H. Williams, is a masterpiece in its illustrations and mo t interesting ly written. The work in this volume is of the highest grade and to ponder its pages is to in spire the soul. This book has been placed on sale at the local bookstores. ORCHARD OF IN DIAN DAY REVIVED An tiri-lian) of .K) year-jM apple tree in t lie I'uyallup Valley that have not liorn fruit for the bint 12 year hn-t lieen revived anil brought Into full bearing; by careful Hprnying; ami pruning, by the ottk-lalu of the Wentern Washing ton experiment sta tion.
