OF SMALL FRUITS
Southern. Pacific Offers In
ducements to Farmers
and Canneries. "
LOW RAIL RATES GIVEN
District Freight Agent Malboeuf In
augurates Campaign to Build Vp
a Great Industry in the
Interest In growing small fruits
throughout the Willamette Valley and
the establishment of canneries to pre
serve them is being fostered by the
1 Southern Pacific In Oregon. A cam
paign started by the company for the
growth of the fruit-canning industry
in this state promises to bring about
the best results. Under the direction
of Charles Malboeuf,' district freight
agent for the Oregon lines, a great In
dustry in the canning of small fruits
will be built up In Western Oregon.
It Is Mr. Malboeufs plan to make this
industry as important In Oregon as
fruitgrowing and preserving is In Cali
fornia. This can easily be done, he
Bays, by encouraging the marketing of
green fruit and the Increase of can
neries in this state.
Mr. Malboeuf has attended a number
of meetings of fruitgrowers In various
parts of the Willamette Valley, and
his project ha been favored. He has
promised very favorable freight T-ies,
both on green fruit to the canneries
and from the canneries to the market.
Generous reductions have been made
In the tariffs for the benefit of the
fruitgrower and canner, and during
the coming year there will be large
tracts throughout the valley planted to
. "The present season." said Mr. Mal
boeuf. "has been notable for one of
the biggest crops of berries and cher
ries on record. Favorable conditions
throughout Western Oregon have made
the yieid a large one. Within the past
two years the people of the valley
have planted large numbers of black- i
berry, loganberry, raspberry and oth
er fruit roots, largely with the view
of marketing the fruit In Portland.
"The very large yield this Summer
exceeded the most sanguine expecta
tions, and the Portland market was
over-supplied. Nearly 1000 tons of
cherries alone were shipped from the
Willamette Valley to the Puget Sound
canneries, as the Western Oregon can
neries could not handle the crop.
Encourage Small Farming.
"Realizing the conditions, and with
the desire to encourage an Industry so
well suited to the climate of Western
Oregon, the Southern Pacific Company
Is fostering in every way the cultiva
tion of small fruits and tha establish
ment of canning establishments. The
result will be a more extensive culti
vation and the dividing up of large
farms into emaller tracts. Many of
the canneries that will be established
will be built and operated on the co
operative plan. It is the Intention of
the Southern Pacific to aid in every
way In the introduction of the best
varieties of small fruits and to assist
their cultivation by scientific methods.
"This work is bringing results. A
number of canning establishments will
be erected within a short time. At
present there are two fruit canneries
at Portland, and others at Salem,
Springbrook, Eugene and Ashland, and
others have been started this year at
Grant's Pass, Brownsville, Monmouth
and Lebanon. The Salem plant is to
be enlarged, the Eugene cannery has
been Improved, and the arrangements
have been made to establish another
large cannery at Salem and another at
"All section of the valley are awak
ening to the possibilities of fruitgrow
ing in conectlon with the canning in
dustry, and by next Spring it is likely
that $500,000 will be invested In can
neries throughout Western Oregon.
"The output of canned fruits on the
Southern Pacific lines In this state, out
side of Portland, during 1906 was less
than' B0 carloads. This year the output
is larger, and by next year there should
be nearly 100 carloads for shipment
to the Eastern markets. Within the
next five years shipments of tinned
fruits from Western Oregon should
amount to 1000 cars a year.
Contrast Is Striking.
"There is quite a contrast with Cali
fornia on the fruit output. California
ships 60,000 care a year of fruit prod
ucts, exclusive of wines. Of this
amount, 35,000 cars are oranges and
lemons, 10,000 cars dried, fruits, 8000
cars, green fruit and aoout 6000 cars
canned fruits. A large part of the
fruit raised in California is grown
with the aid of irrigation. - In the Wil
lamette Valley there is no need for
irrigation. The best cherries in the
world are grown here with scarcely
any attention. Berries raised here
without Irrigation .are equal, to any
grown in any part of the country. I
am informed on the bestauthorlty that
the California fruitgrower realizes
much more profit from his canned
fruits than from that he dries.
"The output of green and dried fruit
in the territory served by the Oregon
lines of the Southern Pacific does not
exceed 1000 cars a year. With the pro
motion of the cannery industry and the
raising of large amounts of small
fruits, this figure will be much In
creased." Mr. Malboeuf says the canning indus
try should equal the creamery busi
ness In Importance in this state, and
he is satisfied it will do so within the
next few years. How great the cream
ery Industry is in Oregon is generally
known. It is interesting to know that
Mr. Malboeuf had much to do with
turning the attention of Oregonians to
the possibilities of the creamery busi
ness in Oregon, and he secured the
location in this state of the largest
milk and cream condenser now operat
ing in Oregon.
The. campaign Just begun by the
Southern Pacific will be carried on
energetically throughout the year, and
It Is hoped to have many more can
neries In operation by next Summer.
General Manager Ridgeway Here.
A. C. Ridgeway, general manager of
the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad, ar
rived in Portland last night from his
Denver headquarters, coming in his pri
vate car. He will spend some tlnjp look
ing over the Pacific Northwest. Mr.
Ridgeway says travel on his lines Is very
heavy at this season. Trains are running
In several sections, and to relieve the
through passenger trains and allow them
to maintain schedules it has been decided
to put on two express and baggage trains
daily between Grand Junction, Colorado,
and Ogden, Utah. These trains care for
-ui the local baggage and express busi-
ness, relieving the through trains of this
traffic. With three dally trains over the
D. & R. Q. some are run in as many as
nine, sections, on account of the heavy
business. General Manager Ridgeway ex
pects to visit Alaska before he returns
First Street to Be Improved.
The Portland Railway, Light & Power
Company has made arrangements for the
permanent Improvement of the space be
tween the tracks, and along each side on
Front street from Washington to Madi
son streets. For the entire distance the
part of the street the company is respon
sible for will be laid with Belgian blocks
set In cement. A standard-gauge track,
of the heaviest rails, will be laid. Work
will be begun on this Improvement either
the last of the present week or early next
week. While It Is in progress cars will
be routed by the Second-street loop.

EXPORT BUSINESS FOR JULY
Shipments of Flour and Lumber
Are Good, Considering Season.
While export business from the Co
lumbia River was slow during . July,
51,900 barrels of flour and 4,226,089 feet
of lumber were sent foreign during the
first month of the cereal year. No
wheat was dispatched and no charters
were announced for new season crop.
All flour and lumber went to the Orient.
Lumber shipments coastwise were
smaller than tor any month for more
than a year past. This condition of
affairs is due to the labor troubles
and the congested condition of the
market in San Francisco. Only the
regular lumber packets remained in the
business and some of them carried part
cargoes of wheat. Otherwise the Coast
traflc was heavy. Receipts of fuel oil
have Increased to a large extent.

On the out voyage from the -Columbia
River the Alliance picked up a drifting
glllnet at a point to the southward of Tllla
mook Rock. The cork line of the net
fouled the propeller and brought the en
glnes to a full stop. It required eight
hours' persistent effort on the part of the
officers and crew to free the wheel. Lines
were run aft from the forward chalks

the ends were entangled in the net. The
double winch was required to break the
netting and the rope which so firmly held
At S o'clock in the evening the Ioobo
netting had all been cleared and the the

has spent considerable time in looking
over the plana carried on by the Oregon
Development League and the Portland
Commercial Club, as well as those of
similar bodies throughout the country.
Regarding the development of the arid
region of Idaho Mr. Macgregor said yes
"We are putting 1.000,000 acres of land
in the Upper Snake River Valley of Idaho
under water that Is, we have It already
under irrigation, and more than 60 per
cent of that In crop; and then Immedi
ately south of us are three other irriga
tion propositions which also have 1.000.000
acres under Irrigation, and all of this
vast territory Is nearer to Portland than
to any other Important coast city. Our
natural outlet through the Snake and
Columbia rivers, as well as by rail trans
portation. Is to this city, and we feel that
Portland ought to show a more marked
appreciation of us. not only by working
'harder for our business but by getting
some of the extra capital of this city in
vested in Idaho irrigation projects, for
Idaho is the irrigation state, and in that
department of advancement has thrown
dust in the faces of California, Utah, Col
orado and all the balance of the states.
In fact, Idaho is so decidedly a leader in
irrigation that she today has more acres
under water than both California and
Colorado combined, or more than Mon
tana, Utah and Arizona combined. We
are not going to be so impolite as to
make a comparison with Oregon or your
sister state of Washington.
"Idaho raises fancy apples, grapes and
other crops, as well as the staples. Her
alfalfa crop Is larger than that of any
other state In the Union, and at the pres
ent time the state has more than 3,000,000
acres of irrigated lands.
"Idaho for a market is worth ten times
as much to Portland as all the business
this city will ever get from Alaska and
Hawaii combined, and this trade comes
from a stable, home-owning population,
which will continue to Increase for many
years to come."
