"When the second and last day's ses
sion oC the sixth annual meeting
of the State Horticultural Society
closed yesterday evening it was agreed
that a more harmonious feeling and
understanding existed between the
fruitgrowers of the state than ever be
fore, and It Is prophesied by evory
member that the future of fruitgrow
ing will be brighter for the convention.
The slogan in Oregon is now good
fruit better frtiit the best fruit that
it Is possible to produce. The standard
set by Hood River fruit men is con
sidered an honor to the Pacific North
west and it is the purpose of the State
Horticultural Society to make for Ore
gon a National reputation.
The election of officers consumed
a portion of the afternoon session and
the re-election by acclamation of Dr.
J. R. Cardwell and his fellow olllcers
gave the greatest satisfaction. Dr.
Cardwell has held the office of presi
dent during the 16 years of the so
ciety's existence, and takes more active
Interest in its affairs today than ever.
E. L. Smith, of Hood River, paid him a
graceful tribute in a nominating
speech, referring to the faithful service
he has given.
The award of the handsome cups fur
nishod for premiums was satisfactory to
the members of the society, and they
are all determined to make renewed

There will also be a cup for the best

and English walnut exhibits will comtf

Everything possible is being1 done to
stimulate the industry of fruit culture
and the growers arc not slow in catch
ing the spirit of progress and the de
sire to rank high in tholr chosen in
dustry. County Fruit Inspector J. H.
Hold was presented with a fine hat
yesterday by the local wholesale fruit
Attendance Is Increased.
The programme of yesterday was fully
as Interesting as the one of Tuesday,
and some enjoyed it better. The at
tendance was larger than on opening
day, and deep attention was given
the various discussions. Edmund P.
Sheldon's paper on "Economic For
estry" was a masterpiece on that all
important subject, and Albert Ray's
address on "The Hop In Oregon" was
thought by many to be one of the
finest of the day. Asa Holaday. of Scup
poosc, who carried off the much-coveted
honors for Northern Spies and Jona
thans, gave much valuable information
about' "The Home Orchard," and those
who saw his fine fruit were most anx
ious to learn his methods. "Hood
River Methods" were discussed by E.
H. .Shepherd, who told the convention
a few tly'ngs about the way the grow
ers of that section handle their fine
orchards, of the exceeding care they
give thorn, and of the fine results they
have as a reward for their trouble.
A talk on roses always interests Ore
gonians. and the announcement that
AV- 1. Sibson would talk on "The Rose
in Oregon" brought out a good at
tendance of Portland rosarians. This
talk was in the nature of personal
experience, as Mr. Sibson has been
more than .ordinarily successful In roso
culture. E. Ij. Smith's paper on "The
Outlook" created more than ordinary
interests as he Is widely informed as to
general conditions in Oregon. Mr.
Smith said among other things:
"Coming nearer home we find that
Oregon. "Washington and Idaho had
j;,n4l.071 apple trees, in orchards, ana
1 hazard the estimate that this number
has been increased 20 per cent the past
fite years, giving in these three states
a grand total of not less than 7,700,000
"What proportion of these ap
ple trees are bearing or will bear
No. 1 commercial apples? In answering
this .question you must take Into con
sideration unsuitable soils, neglect of
cultivation, pruning and spraying. Sum
mer droughts and killing frosts of
Winter, sleet and wind storms, insect
posts, rodents and fungi, and causes too
numerous to name. Again, in this cal
culation please do not forget thai an
nually a vast number of bearing trees
arc going out of commission, the nat
ural sequence of old age.
Material for Many Bonfires.
"A ride through the Willamette Val
ley -will afford a striking illustration of
this fact, for you will observe many
orchards whose day and generation has
passed; and there they stand, those pi
oneer trees, hoary with the mossy
growth of many years clinging to
them, fit objects for the crematory.
"Permit me to exercise my Yankee
privilege of guessing that if the cen
sus enumerator had counted only
healthy, vigorous trees bearing No. 1
apples his returns would have been less
by 50, aye, by more than 7C per cent.
In other words, it is my judgment that
not more than-ione tree out of every
four probably one in eight would be

THE STORY OF DEMOCRACY
Has Merely, Stood for Opposition to
SALEM. Jan. 10. (To the Editor.) Mr.
Stephen Jewell, of La, Grande, claims to
have given a true definition of the term Dem'
ocrat as applied to party, and I am
strongly Inclined to the opinion he Is correct
In his diagnosis, so far as he goes, as he
"points with pride to the fact that we stood
as one man with our sympathies and our
votes for the people of the South while they
were shamefully treated by the Republican
carpet-baggers." He might also hae truth
fully added that they did the same thing dur
ing the four years of rebellion. Tho only
other characteristic by which .the Demo
cratic party is known is its persistent and
consistent opposition to any and all measures
advocated by the Republican party, from the
preservation of the Union, the abolition f
-slavery and the granting of equal rights to
all American citizens, to the protection of
home industries and the establishment of a
sound and safe financial system. But when
he gives the age of the Republican party at
40 years, and bases that assertion upon the
repudiation of Lincoln and Greeley by the
party. I protest he is misleading in his al
leged facts, for I remember distinctly of
"Words arc better than diode.
Impolicy Is the best policy. Give
me publicity or give me death. A

intimated that Mr. Lincoln was other than
an enemy to the South and to the Southern

in full accord with his party In the matter
of fcccurln? the rights of citizenship to the

cratic party o strenuously pped.
As to Horace Greeley the ease is different.
While the party rejected him. It dd not
the Republican principles for which lw had
battled ?o faithfully for many year. I can
bet illustrate this by a little rtorj" A
wealthy sheepman in California was about
to die. Re tiad a large band of sheep which
he wished to divide equally between bis two
Hons. The older wn was a bright, active,
wideawake business man, white the younger
on was a simple-minded, aey-glitg lad
with no taste for bunlnws or disposition to
care for himself. The father called the oMcr
m to his bedside and said to him: L am
about to die. and want to tell you what I
wish you to do with the sheep. You will lt
vidc them Into two ban tin of ounl numbers
and then lot your brother have his choice."
The son promised to faithfully carry out his
instructions, and the father jtamd away In
Icaee. The older son, with an . eye t busi
ness, carefully divided the flock as directed,
but selected all the host and put them In
one lot, and the remainder, which -consisted
of the old and scrubby of the -flock. In an
other. Now. the younger in had a jK-t
sheep of which he was very fond; In fact,
he thought more of that sheep than he did
of any other thin? on the place, and this
whoop the elder brother plaeed with the lat
ter band. This being done he called the
younger brother ' to make his choice. The
boy looked the better lot over, and, not see
ing his pet among them, decided he did not
want that band: then, going to the other,
much to his joy. he found the much-loved
sheep, whom he addressed aa follows: "You
are a good sheep, Billy, and I love you. I
love you better than anything la the world,
Billy; wc have never been tarted and havo
always been good friends, but wc must part
now, Billy, you are in jsuch bad company,"
and turning about took the other Hock.
Greeley was in bad company.

HE SCENTS A CONSPIRACY
E. S. Gordcn, of Coos Bay, Suspects
Plot in Namesake's Marriage.
Edward Sam Gordon, a wealthy Coos
Bay resident, is wondering whether or
not a conspiracy is on foot to pro
cure his property after death by a
bogus Edward Sam Gordcn jand a wom
an -who lately became a Mrs. Edward
Sam Gordcn. On October 19, 1905, a
woman giving the name of Miss Ber
tha Etta Lclch appeared before the
County Clerk of Clark County, Wash
ington, and applied for a marriage
license, saying she 'desired to marry
Edward Sam Gordon. She gave Port
land as her residence and that of the
prospective groom, but she failed to
exhibit her Intended spouse, witnesses
or affidavit, and was told that a license
could not issue under the circum
stances. October 20 she returned with an afll
davit bearing the sljrnaturc of Mrs,
A. Mancc, of Portland, which was at
tested before J. S. "Willis, a notary pub
lic, of this city also. Upon this show
ing the license was issued.
On the following day they were mar
ried in Vancouver, Wash., and from
that time to this nothing has been
heard from them. The real Edward S.
Gorden lias retained a lawyer to fore
stall any plot that may be on foot.

The subject was widely discussed. Cap

Mrs. Waldo and Mr. Spcncc declared
that the Initiative law put out by the re

crude and full of hasty work.
Mr. Spcncc picked "flaws" in the Wood

Same Old Trail.
PORTLAND. Jan.. 10. (To the Editor.) In
Friday's Oregonlan. Mr. Schlff. of Kuhn.
Loeb & Co.. bankers, sounded a. note of
warning to the people that unless the monty
system of the United States were at once
changed and made more elastic, and the
banks authorized to Issue emergency money
when the supply became short, the Nation
would see such timet as, were never before
witneejed such times as would make all
pan money panics seem Insignificant. On
this scare statement many thousands of dol
lars were made and lost on Wall street,
rrecldeat Hoosevelt la bis last menage as
well as In others called the attention of
Congress to this inelasticity business and
urged that something be done to help out the
banks, as they were the legitimate source to
which the people must look for & money sup
ply. The Secretary of tho Treasury. Mr.
Shaw, in his report said that to fix this up
right the National banks should be author
ised to Issue 50 per cent of their present cir
culation on the security now on deposit In
addition to what was already in use. and
that 5 to 6 per cent be charged for the prir
liege of so doing till such time as they were
ready to return it.
Mr. Schirt in his speech says that this per
cent business is all wrong. Of course It is.
Any per cent is wrong. Some two or three
years ago the president o? the National
Banking Association, at its session in New
Orleans. Issued the same warning cry that
the country was doomed unless tho banks
were permitted to issue additional notes on
ascet security, and so It has gone for years
at almost every session of Congress. In the
meantime National vbank notes have In
creased till they now number f533.00O.000.
according to Vanderllp's financial review in
Sunday's Oregonlan. Since the Spanish war
he says these notes have doubled and have
Increased In the past year $73,000,000. Fifty
per cent of J333.000.000 Is 52S7.SOO.000 as per
Secretary Shaw's recommendation.
To me this looks very much like inflation
of the mort unjust kind, as all these dollars
are purely promt to pay 23 or 30 years
hence at u, of 1 per cent interest. Not an
actual gold or silver dollar do these notes
represent. Of course, bonds are deposited
to secure redemption. An ordinary engine
or dynamo with some good paper and a
skillful operator, and the work is done. ,A

suspended the coinage of silver Into dollars
