A few general remarks on fruit condi
tions in the Valley were made by Rev.
A. J. Hundsakor of this city. He was
followed by H. L Williamson, of Port

Mr.. Williamson's remarks were perti

growers present. '
D. C VanHorn, of Dayton, and J. H.
Reos, of Springbrook, had excellent speci
mens of red apples on exhibit and told
Just how they were sprayed and cared for
from the time, the pinkish blossoms blew
until the apples were mature. A marked
contrast was shown between well-tended
and ill-cared for fruit orchards.
Just bofore the morning session gd

Goodrich, of Jforth Yamhill; D. C. Van
Dorn, of Duyton, Thomas Prince, of Dun

ported and the society formed to be known
as the Horticultural Society of Yamhill

"Ered Klncaid, of JCowbcrg. read a. paper

scale that does so much damage to fruit
and told how such" fruit was not desir
able for canning purposes. One strong
point made was that small growers will
not spray their fruit and thus It Is very
difficult to exterminate the pest. A plea
was made to have all fruitgrowers war
against the San Jose scale for contami
nated fruit cannot bo used as material
for case goods.
Frank Wallace exhibited some boxes of
large Baldwin apples of an unusually rich
color and told how the color could be se
cured only by the proper pruning of trees

to the forming fruit.

Corvallis, was filled with practical Infor

most common fruit pests, when, how and

also told Just how to prepare various
sprays and when and how they should bo

opportunity was given visitors to ask
questions. Scores of questions were

and wore satisfactorily answered by Pro
The other leading addresses were given
by Charles V. Galloway and W. K.

Rummel, the balance In power, tipped one

Detectives on the Steunenberg
Murder Case Confident.
REFUSE TO GIVE OUT NEWS
Denver Attorney Arrives at Caldwell
and Identifies the Principal Sus
pect as Thos. Hogan, Whom
Ho Knew In Denver.
BOISE. Idaho. Jan. 6. (Special.) Citi
zens of Caldwell seem to be in a state of
subdued excitement generally. Since the
first horrible news of the murder of ex
Governor Frank Steunenberg came out. no
day has passed when so little talking has
been don. Here and there a group of
citizens are seen discussing: the pros and
cons of the murder case, but the general
excitement wa never stronger than to
day. Every one seems to feci that they
are standing upo'n the threshold of some
very important developments.
That Captain. Swain and his entire force
are -working hard and straining every en
ergy to fathom some Important mystery
in connection with the case Is evident.
Every officer is "sawing wood."
"There Is something doing." said Swain
today to the representative of the States
man. "I cannot give you much news
now. but there will be plenty of it for you
soon. Wc know now where we are at. and
we have our work laid out for us. There
is a lot of grubbing to do. All I can say
is that we arc hard at work, and with
definite results in view."
It is the opinion of leading men here
that Captain Swain has struck what
might be termed a "blazed trail." Humors
and unimportant evidence hold no induce
ments to attract tho concern of his de
tectives now. They seem to be working
with a definite object in, view. What evi
dence is being gathered must be of a very
Important nature, for It is being closely

ATTORNEY CALLS UPOX HOGAN
Comas From Colorado' and So Is De
nied Private Interview.
BOISE. Idaho. Jan. 6. James J. Sulli
van, a Denver attorney, arrived In Cald
well today, and Identified the suspect held
for the murder of Governor Steunenberg
as Thomas Hogan. a man whom he knew
In Denver In connection with some civil
business. When he saw Harry Orchard,
or Hogan. this morning, he said: "Hello,
Tom! What nre you doing here?"
Orchard replied: "I was arrested for the
assassination of Frank Steunenberg. I
was going to telegraph you if you hadn't
showed ur today."
Orchard, or 'Hogan. as he persists In
calling himself, notwithstanding his state
ment that he is Harry -Orchard, asked
that he wight have a private Interview
with Sullivan. It war explained that, un
der the law of this state, a nonresident
attorney could be denied an Interview with
a prisoner in private, and that any non
resident lawyer was obliged to secure an
Idaho attorney as his associate In an;
Sullivan went to the jail again this aft
ernoon and sought to secure a private in
terview with Orchard. The Sheriff re
fused to grant It. An Interview between
Orchard and Sullivan then occurred in the
Sheriff's office, with the Sheriff and one
or two other officers present. Sullivan
said to Orchard he had no Idea of taking
up the defense. He did not come for that
purpose, he said. He was willing to ex
tend any favor he could but he was not
to be regarded as an attorney in the case.
Orchard then wrote a telegram to the
law firm of Robertson, Rosenhaup &. Mil
ler, as follows:
"Let me know when you will come to
defend me Immediately. I can make other
arrangements. THOMAS HOG AX."

ent appliances for a long time, no less
than about 20 graduates being so em
