Fruit Growers Meeting.
The annual meeting of the Lin
coln County Fruit Growers' Union
was held at the courthouse last
Wednesday afternoon. A large del
egation of fruit growers from all over
the county was present, President
S. G. Irvin of Newport; N. L. Mc-
Elwain of Toledo; George Hodges of
Elk City; D. B. Ramsdall of Elk
City, P. II. Martin of Harlan were
electul ai airotKS.
A committee composed of Messrs.
Martin, Bell, and Crosno was ap
pointed to revise the by-laws and
constitution, and report at the next
Many short but cnthui.ntie
speeches ' were made by members
and others interested i egarding the
raising and handling of fruit, and
the importance of union among tho
fruit raisers in handling the mark
eting of the fruit. Mr. Martin of
Harlan, who is an old Hood River
apple grower, told of the workings
of the union at that place and gavo
some very interesting facts.
Among the good things that ho
said was that he knew apples could
be raised in Lincoln county at least
25 per cent cheaper than they can
be raised at Hood River. Mr.
Martin also said that, when they
first began to raise apples at Hood
River their lands went up to a hun
dred dollars per acre, and they
thought that was a large price.
Now, swoo the fruit industry thci
has reached such world wide rep
utation, the same land is bringing
fum 1000 to $1500 per acre and
is not for sale at even that figure.
He thinks Lincoln county's lands
can be made h command the some
prices when the fruit industry is
developed as it should be.
P. A. Miller said he' had a young
orchard which he will have pruned
within a few weeks and wanted tho
union to meet at his place when the
work was done. A request will be
made to tho Oregon Agricultural
college to send a representative over
to instruct the union on methods of
pruning young orchards, and give
a practical lesson.
The meeting adjourned to meet at
