In a recent interview It. H. Smith,
a well known commercial travoling
man who makes regular trips to the
various coast cities, summed up the
fruit situation as follows:
"With one accord the fruit grow
ers of California have lifted up their
voices in a gract wall, and protest
against the recent ruling of the pure
food law which makes It a misde
meanor to cure fruit with the pres
ent high percentage of sulphur.
"Oregon has inado no complaint,
and now, perhaps, for the first time
virtue Is to bo rewarded, for the
pure food law only serves to em
phasize the superior grado of fruit
that Oregon has been placing upon
the market. While the spirit of
royalty to its state, and 'boasting' of
its advantages, is indeed commend
able, California is beginning to suf
fer from dishonest practices.
"No longer will they bo able to
combine fig seed, syrup and anallne
dye, and sell it to the hungry thous
ands of tho fruitless middle west as
'strawberry Jam,' as in days gone by
because of tho pure food ruling, al
though they may continue to use
choice Oregon fruit3 under Califor
nia labels, just as some of their own
wines bear the French label.
"Not alone Jn their fruits, but in
their fruit lands have fraudulent
methods of advertising been used,
and at Rialto, almost a deseit spot,
hundreds of homeseekers have been
lured from the east only to find that
they have been swindled out of th;ir
money by a fako promoter's scheme.
Nor Is this the first swindle of this
kind. Apple valley was another,
some ten years ago, when settlers
bequiled by tho alluring title of
Apple Valley,' invested their cash,
and upon arrival, found only a
greasewood wilderness, where water
had to be hauled several miles. Pos
sibly Irrigation may havo been pro
vided by this time, but many a dis
couraged man left his holdings as
soon as he arrived.
"In natural advantages Oregon
lacks nothing, but Washington is liv
ing up to its possibilities to a greater
extent than Is tho Beaver state. The
town of Puyallup has made a name
for itself all over tho east, duo In a
large measure to the co-operation of
tho farmers, and J. W. Holman, a
banker of that city is responsible for
tho statement that there is not a
man, woman or child in Puyallup
that is not Interested In some way in
the fruit Industry of the place. Hops
have taken a back seat in that local
ity, and the annual outing of many
families is taken in the berry camps.
"While it is true that thousands of
dollars' worth of cherries havo been
shipped to Puyallup from Oregon,
that little town of canneries realizes
that it has only a berry country to
draw upon, while there aro facilities
there for handling all kinds of fruit.
Tho output of berries there is from
four to seven cars daily during berry
season, but tho crop upon which the
fruit growers are realizing tho great
est profit Is tho evergreen blackberry.
This Is a wild product In Oregon
and the farmers aro eradicating It as
rapidly as possible from their fields
and fence corners. Its average yield
there is 1,200 crates to the acre.
"Oregon doesn't claim, as yet, to
produce tho samo grade, of grapes as
her sister state, California, nor to
grow oranges at all, but for the good
old staple fruits, such as apples,
pears, prunes, etc., and al the small
fruits, she has no equal, and it only
requires co-operation an denorgy to
place Oregon on tho map as the fruit
center of tho world."
After having been at the flood
stago for ono of tho longest periods
on record, if not the longest, the
Willamotto River will bo bolow 15
foot tomorrow afternoon. Fore
castor'Beals made the prediction that
tho stream would fall during tho next
24 hours so as to bo bolow tho depth
it has maintained slnco May 21.
Tho highest mark reached was
19;2 foot. Because of tho immense
amount of snow In tho mountains it
was freely predicted by pioneers
along the river that water would bo
on Front street this season and that
possibly a repetition of tho 1894
flood would be realized, but weather
conditions governed the freshet ad
mirably and tho erces3 wattr has
beon carried off with exceptionally
slight damage Lower docks havo
beon covered, but with plenty of
warning property owntrs havo been
ablo to protect the docks with
weights and only a comparatively
small amount of replanklng will be
needed to place them In shape.
Tho water came up rather rapidly
at first, the highest stage having been
reached June G, and since then it has
dropped gradually. Most of the
lower docks are clear today and the
work of rehabilitating them " has
been Inaugurated. Oak Btrcct dock
Is reoccupied and Alder street and
Washington will bo in a few days.
Ash street dock being the lowest, a
start has not been made on clearing
it, as about 14. C feot of water serves
to submerge It.

The Chamber of Commprce will
hold Its regular weekly meeting to
night In tho room on Front street,
commencing at eight o'clock. Many
matters of importance are up for
discussion and settlement and there
will be Beveral addresses of interest.
Now that the Chamber Is accomplish
ing so much good work, and has
more In sight, it is the duty of every
member and of outsiders who believe
In Coos Bay to get out and aid in
tho "exploitation and material ad
vancement. Among tho matters which will re
ceive attention, are: the Roseburg
Coos Bay electric railroad; the hotel;
resolutions will be presented showing
tho advantageous position of Coos
Bay in case of war; besides other
things of equal Interest.
It is a noticeable fact that since
tho Chamber has opened quarters
convenient to the business section of
the city many Teople drop in and
otherwise drag slowly,
while away minutes which would
This gathering of different busi
ness men and the talks and argu
ments which follow are creative of
much good, and many new thoughts
aro advanced which finally get bo
foro the public in a form to com
mand attention and action.
A special featuro of the meeting
will bo an address by S. B. Howard,
representing the Empire Railroad
Construction Company, of New York
City, who is traveling through the
west for the purpose of introducing
and explaining the advantages of the
monorail system of railroads. This
particular topic should beof extra
ordinary Interest at this time, since
there Is considerable railroad talk,
and tho meeting is to discuss the
proposed railroad from here to Rose-burg.
Julius Kriittschnitt Makes Quiet
Kntry Into Rose City To
Julius Kruttchnitt, director of
operation and maintenance of the
big Harriman system, is in tho Rose
City. Mr. Kruttschnitt came into
Portland quietly, traveling in the
"Guadalupe," which Is Car 100 of
the Southern Pacific private equip
ment. After arriving Mr. Kruttschnitt
visited tho office of James P. O'Brien
general manager of tho Northwest
lines, and passed most of the morn
ing there, later accompanying him
to luncheon at tho Arlington club.
Mr. Kruttschnltt's mission is said to
be a general trip over the system
and his movements from Portland
have not been announced.
He has passed about two weeks in
California, Inspecting the Pacific di
vision and tho line across the Sierra
Nevada. It is said his trip to the
Bear State was brought about
largely through a desire to learn
more of certain reports regarding
the condition of the line. The dis
astrous wrecks during tho Winter
and Spring were responsible for ru
mors being circulated to tho effect
that ties and rails were In poor
shape In certain districts, and Mr.
Kruttschnitt was credited as saying
he would make a thorough investi
gation. The most recent decision of tho
Interstate Commerce Commission
regarding the Harriman merger may
also have a bearing upon his ap
pearance here, as it is generally
thought Mr. Harriman will divide
his lines if the Government repre
sentatives become too Insistent and
In that event he will place local m.en
at their heads, probably giving Mr.
O'Brien supervision as before merely
of tho O. R. & N system and putting
tho Oregon lines of tho Southern Pa
cific under separate management.
