PERFECT SPECIMENS OF FRUIT
LWell-Kept Orchard In Home of the
"Big Red Apple" Brings Returns
of Over $200 Per Acre on
SALEM,;- Or., Nov. 29tr-SpeclaL That
the Willamette Valley is -still an apple
erowlng region Is shown fcy the fact that
on a. single orchard near' Salem there
were grown and packed this year more
boxes ol first-class Spltzenberg app!es
than -were shipped from the. entire Hood
Elver Valley. That the apples -were up'
to standard In quality Is evident when It
Is stated that a Hood River expert was
employed to pack the fruit In accordance
with the regulations la force at packing
establishments In the famous Hood
River Valley. The Salem apples were
sold In New York City on tneir merits.
The orchard referred to is the well
known Wallace orchard, near this1 city,
where 10,000 boxes of shipping apples
were produced. The orchard comprises 35
acres, but many of the trees have been
removed or set to other varieties, so that
there were in reality only enough Splt
renberg trees to fill completely about 30
acres. Because the outlook for a crop
was poor early in the Fall, the apples
were sold at a reduced price and brought
only $12,000. The crop matured much bet
ter than expected and yielded the pur
chaser a handsome profit.
Manager C A. Park, of the Wallace
orchard, estimates that It cost 51000 to
j.rune, spray and cultivate the orchard
and $3500 to pick and pack the fruit. This
leaves a net return of $7500 on the 33
acre.", or $214 per acre. This Is over 20
per cent on the investment if the or
chard be estimated to be worth $1000 an
In view of this good showing made by
:he Wallace orchard, the question "How
lid you do it"? seemed peculiarly perti
lent, and' It was (put to Mr. Park.
"In the first place, we kept the trees
as clean as we reasonably could by spray
ing," he replied. "We kept the trees
well pruned and then took off about
two-thirds of the fruit while the apples
were young. As a rule we left the ap
ples no closer together on the limb than
six or eight Inches. The result was that
cur apples were large, clean and well
colored. This last characteristic Is im
jwrtant, for one of the requirements of
a first-class apple is, " that its surface
must be at least two-thirds red. Out of
the whole 10,000 boxes of apples we fdund
only 62 boxes that did not go Into 'th
class of 'two-thirds red.'
"It was the Willamette Valley that
gave Oregon its reputation for 'big red
apples,' " continued Mr. Park, "and I
- hope ot see Willamette Valley orchard
Jsts reap a fair share of the benefits of
that reputation. If growers would only
clean up their orchards, spray them thor
oughly at the proper times and pick off
enough fruit -while young so that what
remains will be large and well formed,
we shall have much less of the poor fruit
that Is unprofitable to raise and not suit
able to ship.
Then we must have packers who will
not accept poor fruit. When we" sold the
Wallace apples this year we told the pur
chaser that we wanted him to get a man
who understood the business to super
intend the packing. He sent to Hood
River for a man. and the large quantity
of apples that were found acceptable un
der his regulations shows 'what the Wil
lamette Valley can do in raising apples
of good quality."
Besides these 10.000 boxes of apples that
were shipped East, there was also raised
on the Wallace orchard 153 tons of Bart
lett pears," 1800 boxes of Fall pears and
io tons of otherv apples.

After se'eking'for the past three years

The Southeastern lines started the quar

larger amount of the freight receipts than
the transcontinental lines, justly or un
justly, believed they -were entitled to.
During the past two years three meetings
thave been balled In the hope that the dif
ficulties might be overcome and an agree
ment reached which would be satisfactory
to all persons concerned. The last meet
ing was held in Chicgo September 23, but
representatives of the different roads
failed to agree. The breaking, off of con
nections comes as a result.
"The transcontinental lines have been
draWn into this against their wishes,"
cald an official of one of the big systems
last night, "and they regret the action
that lias been taken as much as will the
shippers. I think that they would be will

REWARD FOR CONVICT ESCAPES
Police Officer in Making Arrest Is
Simply Doing His Duty.
OLYMPIA, Wpsh., Nov. 29. (Special.)
There will not be any reward paid for
the capture of J. P, Cogsdill, the escaped
trusty from Walla Walla, who was taken
In this city on October 30, who had been
at liberty for a month, unless the courts
so direct. Cogsdill was arrested here by
Police Officer A. J. Bennett as a result of
a telephone message -to the Sheriff from
C. A. Lee, of Tenlno, whp was alarmed
lest Cogs&lll would make way with a
team hired or him that day.
Neither Lee nor the ofllcer know there
was a reward outstanding for the cap
ture jof the man. Both, however, applied
to th'e State Board of Control for the $75
offered and the matter was referred to
tho Attorney-General. In an opinion filed
today, which is important inasmuch as It
will govern the many similar cases that
arise yearly, the Attorney-General holds
that a police officer in making arrests of
this nature for the Sheriff is acting In
has capacity as a police officer and not as
a private citizen and that it is viola
tion of public policy for him to receive a
reward for so doing.
The Attorney-General says there are
two lines of authority In respect to Lee's
right to the reward, one being opposed
and the other favorable. He advises that
while the Board would probably not be
criticised for payment of the reward to
Lee, under the circumstances a release
should be secured from Bennett or else
be allowed to settle the matter In court.
The Board will adopt the latter course.
