Hood River Entertains Xdrthtvestern
Fruit Men Great Future for
Industry Forecast.
: HOOD RIVER, Or., Sept. 20. (Spe
cial.) For four war years England
sacrificed the appeals of appetite, and
the apples of Oregon, the reputation of
which had been fixed abroad, were
kept on this side of the Atlantic.
But the war over, although shipping
conditions remain somewhat uncertain.
England is sending out again for her
favorite fruit. To bring about a re
Eumption of commercial relations be
tween marketing concerns of this side
and the importers, numerous repre
eentatives of northwestern boxed ap
ples have gone abroad, and on Wednes
day Dan Wuille. managing director of
Dan Wuille & Co., pioneer shippers of
Hood River Newtowns. arrived here on
. tour of the northwestern box dis
tricts. One of the most Interesting func
tions of northwestern fruit history
occurred here Thursday night, when
Mr. Wuille was guest of honor at a
tunquet tendered at the Hotel Oregon
by his northwestern offce here, in
charge of A. E. Woolpert. It was at
tended by 115 fruit growers from Hood
River and other Oregon and Washing
ton apple districts.
Expansion la Discussed.
Mr. Wuille, whose company has be
come a permanent institution In Hood
River and other northwestern districts,
la here to discuss further expansions.
Trans-Atlantic shipping concerns han
dling apples, he stated, have Issued In
structions that no boxed apples will
be received for export unless the boxes
are wired or roped.
"While it will 6ost a few cents per
box," eaid Mr. AVuille, "It will pay well
to follow these Instructions and make
the packages secure. The standard
northwestern apple box, without Wir
ing or roping, is not suitable for ex
port. We have had 10 per cent dam
age from broken boxes and wasted ap
ples. This will run $40 loss to the
100 boxes. The transportation com
panies, while they do not always pay,
wish to shut off the annoyance of
Claims from such a. source."
"Apple a Day" AdoptedT
,! "We have adopted your adage, 'An
apple a day keeps the doctor away,' "
he said, "and when I recall that we
have 7,000,000 mouths to feed In Lon
don alone, you will see that your en
tire crop here in Hood River would not
go far toward filling our demand if all
the people were made to take cogni
zance of that advice. Tou couldn't
supply London for a month."
Uufur was represented by A. J.
Churchill, manager of the DufUr Or
chard Owners' company, whose hold
ings 4000 acres just coming to bearing
-were characterized by Toastmaster
Sproat as one of the largest single ap
ple orchards in the world. M. C. Bara

Active Work by Borah Against
Covenant Tends to Co'nfuse
Public Opinion.
BOISE, Idaho, Sept. 20. (Special.)
John F. Nugent, junior United States
senator from Idaho, delivered his
maiden speech in the senate recently,
and copies of it have reached Idaho,
where It is exciting no little comment.
Although he has been in the upper
halls of congress for two years. Sen
ator Nugent had not broken prominent
ly into printer's ink. Senator Nugent
lined up with the ratification sup
porters. He served notice on his con
stituency in Idaho that he is for the
treaty of Versailles and the league of
nations' covenant.
The fact that Senator Nugent come
out so pointedly for ratification and
that the senior senator from this state.
Senator Borah, recognized as one of the
nation's leaders, is taking directly the
opposite stand, has naturally divided
sentiment and opinion in Idaho. Nu
gent 1 a democrat. Borah is a re
publican. Credit is given both men for
Roosevelt la Quoted.
The address of Senator Nugent takes
hp the treaty and covenant in detail.
It is pointed out that Theodore Roose
velt, when alive, was an ardent advo
cate for the league and in support of
this statement an address given by the
martyred ex-president in 1910 in
Chrlstlnla, Norway, is quoted from.
Roosevelt Said among other things at
that time: "Each nation must keep
well prepared to defend itself until the
establishment of some form of inter
national police power, competent and
willing to prevent violence as between
nations, is organized."
Senator Nugent stated that the cove
nant can be amendded and that he
doubts not but what time and experi
ence will demonstrate the necessity
for 'amendment. He cites the fact that
since its adoption the constitution of
the United States has been amended 18
times. Failure to ratify. Senator Nu
gent holds, will mean frightful slaugh
ter in another world war soon to fol
low. The treaty and covenant are
thereafter taken up in detail, the sen
ator's statements and defense being
similar to those of President Wilson.
The address of Senator Ndgent Is
taken here as an answer to the recent
attack made upon him by democrats to
"speak up" in defense of the treaty
and covenant.
Borah's Ilepott Discredited.
Party leaders are inclined not td take
seriously the report that four years
hence Senator Borah will not ba a can
didate to succeed himself in the senate.
The report was to the effect that he
would then take up the practice of law
In New YorV.
Unusual Interest is attached to the
activity of H. F. Samuels of Samuels,
Bonner county, since he returned to
this state from a trip abroad to In
vestigate labor conditions for and on
behalf of the present national admin
istration. He has been spending the
week speaking to members of the
Nonpartisan league at picnics held in
southern Idaho. Samuels was the
league's candidate for governor, having
been nominated at the democratic
primaries, although a republican, and
defeated by D. W. Davis now governor
of the state. It is believed in political
circles that Samuels will be a candi
date. Samuels Is wealthy and can
make the race. He stated in an inter
view that the common people In Eu
rope are for the league of nations but
the aristocrats and professional sol
diers are against It. He was in France,
England, Sweden, Norway, Holland.
Germany, Belgium, Italy and other
countries. He said that While money
will buy anything to eat, most of the
people are without funds.

The city council of Ashland made a
trip of inspection to the headwaters
of Ashland creek this week, and has
practically decided upon the construc

against shortage.
Two reservoir sites are under Con
sideration, the east -fork site being
favored, as it would be possible to
complete the project in time to insure
against a shortage next summer, while
the west fork reservoir, although it
would have twice the capacity, would
take all summer to finish and would
be larger than is necessary at this
time. It will be built when the en
larged reservoir capacity now contem
plated becomes too small.
The contemplated reservoir will sup

reservoirs now In use. By combining
It with existing pipe lines It will form
an auxiliary source of power for the
