Fire about 9 o'clock Friday even
ing completely destroyed the Moore
home on B street near Mountain
avenue, nothing but a saddle and a
few minor articles being saved from
the flames. The cause of the fire is
a matter of conjecture, no explana
tion being given as yet. Defective
flue is given as the most plausible
cause. When the fire was discovered
the whole interior was ablaze and
flames were pouring out of the win
dows -on all sides of the building,
which was already doomed. The fire
alarm brought the hose companies
promptly and streams were turned
on, but without avail, the names
licking up the entire framework and
contents of the house in a short time.
From a spectacular standpoint the
conflagration proved a great attrac
tion, the flames mounting high in
the air and lighting up the sky for
several blocks. It was plainly visi
ble from all parts of the city. A
large crowd hurried to the scene and
some attempted to rescue furniture
from the burning building. A saddle
and a few minor articles were thus
saved, but the damage done by these
well-intentioned parties and by curi
ous bystanders was far greater, the
garden being tramped into the
ground . and rendered practically
worthless. Valuable fruit trees about
the house were scorched and 6ome of
them ruined. The damage to sur
roundings was by no means a neglig
ible quantity. The property owned
by Mr. Moore comprises about two
acres of splendid garden land, well
covered with fruit trees, alfalfa and

In line with recent agitation for a
railroad from one of tne valley cities
to the famous Blue Ledge mining
districts, is the announcement in the
Oregon Mining and Timber Journal
that the road is already financed
and will be built immediately. The
following is the article referred to:
"A railroad to cost $1,X00,000 and
to extend 52 miles from Grants Pass
up the Applegate river has been
financed and authorized by the own
ers of the copper mines in the Blue
Ledge mining district. The contract
for the rails has been let, the final
. survey is to be made at once, and
( thopcontract for the construction of
. the road will be let soon. The build--ing
of this railroad is to solve an old
and serious transportation problem
of the southern Oregon and northern
California district. A first effort was
made to induce .he S. P. to build
it as a spur, connecting with their
lines at Grants Pass. This effort
failed. E. M. Chester, local agent
of the eastern capitalists who are
financing the road, has been in Port
land several days, completing final
arrangements for the construction.

the raising of the dam at the south
side to force the current over the
north face of the dam, and thus
avoid a second ladder. This pro

CODLING MOTH SPRAY
i Last Application Should Be Myde
Beginning August 7 Pears Need
Xot Be Sprayed.
The final or last spray for codling
moth should be applied beginning
with August 7. Ordinarily, this
spray might be omitted, but our ob
servations on the second brood show
that there are a great mahy belated
members, which will tend to enter
the apples some time after the above
date. The spraying which was done
about a month ago covered the fruit
completely at that time; however, the
surface area, of the apples has in
creased greatly since that time, mak
ing a large portion of the fruit un
protected. It has been noted that
the belated members of the second
brood of codling moth have usually
caused more damage than any of the
regular first or second broods. This
is due to the fact that the apples
have been properly thinned and only
those which should remain being
left on the trees. Therefore, the
destruction of any fruit after this
time means a loss.
.Pears need not be sprayed, even
the very late ones. The apples
should be sprayed with arsenate of
lead at the rate of four pounds of
arsenate of lead, to 100 gallons of
An examination of all of the com
mercial orchards of the valley shows
that very effective spraying has been
done this year. The fruit is clean
in every way. and it is hoped that
the record so far maintained will be
kept up by applying the final spray.
Remember that a box or two of ap
ples will go a long way toward pay

NIGHT TRIP HAS MANY ENTRIES, ALL BUT FOUR OF WHOM REACH
GOAL-SUNRISE OBSCURED BY HAZE-VIEW MAGNIFICENT
The trip to Mount Ashland, whicn
has been the talk of the city for the
past two weeks, was pulled off ac
cording to schedule last Saturday
night and nearly a hundred aspirants
to the honor of having scaled the
peak succeeded in reaching their des
tination near the hour of sunrise yes
terday morning. By the middle of
last week the number who had signi
fied their intention of making the as
cent had reached nearly forty and it
was thought a party of fifty would
make the trip. But when the teams
began Jeaving for Long's cabin Sat
urday afternoon It was found that
the number had increased with the
agitation and the capacity of both
livery barns was taxed to the utmost,
besides numbers of private convey
ances. Nearlv a. hundred left Auh.
I land at different hours of the day,
some going up in tne morning and
camping at Long's all afternoon, oth
ers departing at almost every hour
of the afternoon and evening in
squads of various sizes. The last
party numbered fifteen and left the

j o'clock, arriving at Long's in time to
i hear the command to be ready to
start at midnight, and to participate
in tne general joy of drinking from
the camp coffee pot. that provoker
of sleeplessness so necessary for the
night job before them.
A few left Long's In independent
parties before the main party depart
ed for the top, one party of five start
ing at 9 and another a little later.
Several boys took the trip indepen
dently and were on the summit to
greet the main body of travelers
when they arrived. At 12 o'clock,
Judge Watson sounded the signal
for all to be ready for the start in
ten minutes, and tnere was a general
shaking of covers by those who had
availed themselves of the opportun
ity to sleep, a strapping on of lunch
baskets and a l'ghting up of "bugs."
The crowd that departed at that
hour was a jolly one, most of whom
were making their maiden trip over
the trail. Most of them were afoot,
I but some rode horses, and the
(twinkle of scores of "bugs,", at- vari
j ous heights announced to the rear
guard each turn in the trail, as the
j vanguard led the way up the hill.
Here and there the party divided into
j squads, sometimes several hundred

or an sizes until the last of them ap
peared, some fresh and sighing for
greated heights, and others more or
less fagged out. Those who arrived
before 5 found a party of boys ahead
of them, Young America having tri
umphed over those of mature years
in the ascent of the mountain. Less
than a half dozen saw the first rays

above the horizon, while the entire
party saw him in all his fiery glory
before he was fifteen minutes high.
From a spectacular standpoint the
sunrise was a . disappointment to
many, a thin haze covering the disc
so completely that its appearance was
that of a huge ball of fire. No glar
ing, rays radiated from it and the
light was ITiffuBed rather than bril
liant. The silver, piercing beams
were lacking, because of the clouds,
while the sharp air of an 8,000-foot
attitude was such as to drive many
to shelter after the warm exertion
of a long climb. Because of this
chilling breeze many did not stay for
the free and uniimitednKe nt the toi

Despite this disappointment, the
view from-the summit was 'pro

the Three Sisters and countless other
peaks andpinnacles loomed upon the
horizon in every direction. The tele
scope of the Siskiyou Club was
brought to play upon each In succes

that of extreme weariness, but to the
greater number it was one or the
grandeur of the scenery and the suc
cessful accomplishment of their de
sire to scale the mount. Everyone
felt amply repaid for the effort de
spite the weariness, and the next
party will find a number tf them in
The trip was. a pronounced success.
Other than the "breaking of a buggy
tongue at a narrow place in the road
half a mile this side of Long's, no
accidents occurred, and in this ease
there was no imminent danger of an
accident. The incident, however,
emphasizes the warning that has fre
quently been heard that parties
should make the trip to Long's by
daylight, as the road is in many
places unsafe Tor travel in the dark.
It must be said that to the careful
driving of the drivers sent out by the
local livery stables is due the fact
that no serious accidents occurred on
this stretch of road.
Nor were there any injuries on the
long hike of eight miles to the sum
mit. For this too much credit can
not be given Messrs. F. C. Routledge
and C. B. Watson, who took upon
themselves the responsibility of get
ting the crowd to the top. Mr.
Routledge states that 91 left Ash
land. By far the greater number of
these constituted the -party that left
Long's with Judge Watson in the
front and Mr. Routledge in the rear.
The crowd was made up of men,
women and children, of ages that
vary from eight to eighty. .To strike
a gait that will conform to the walk
ing proclivities, of the weakest and
still guarantee to the strongest ar
rival at the summit at sunrise, re
quires a knowledge of mountain
climbing and of human possibilities,
together with tac t and judgment that
aje deserving of commendation. In
this these gentlemen proved their
prowess by getting the entire party
to the top, with tno exception of four,
of whom Mr. and Mtb. Du Peau ar
rived, within a half mile of the sum
mit and Mr. and Mrs. Freeburg
reached Cribble's cabin, two miles
from the ton. 'i hese four mirrht have
reached the summit by extra effort
but preferred to take the view rrom
their respective points rather than
tax their strength by farther ascent.
No accidents or failures on account
of fatigue are reported, everyone re
turning to Ashland in excellent spir
its and well satisfied with the trip.
Among the party were men and
women who could have made the trip
in much shorter time than did the
party but who preferred to remain
with the crowd and render what as
sistance they could to those less abie
to proceed speedily, instances were
noted where parties with horses gave
up their mounts to tired women and
where men remained behind to see
that weaker ones did not fall by the
wayside. These examples of chivalry
deserve commendation. It must be
remembered than an ascent of 6,000
feet is made from Ashland, by far
the greater part of which comes in
the last eight miles. Many people do
not realize what this means and the
undertaking could never have been
accomplished by some without the
chivalrous attention so noticeable on
the part of a number of the party.
Snowballing contests were in
dulged in by members of the party,
the exercise serving .as diversion and
adding to the general merriment of
the occasion. When one has once
seen the great drifts packed so hard
as to bear the weight of a horse anu

understand the source of Ashland's

SHIP BARELY SAVED.
Fire Bums Over Two Hours With
Eureka. Cal. Aflame from fer
bed plates to her cabins, dripping
with oil, and severed from the world
by the failure of her wireless, the
North Pacific Steamship Company's
vessel F. A. Kilburn was saved from
destruction Thursday night by the
heroic efforts of her crew.
Two girls narrowly escaped suffo
cation. An oiler fell end sustained
a broken leg. The chief engineer, E.
G. Clough, and Sidney Ashton, the
steward, who rescued the two girls,
fell heavily on the oil-drenched
decks, and were badly bruised.
The fire, which was discovered in
the engine room of the steamer at 11
o'clock while 25 miles south of Point
Arena, burned fiercely for two
hours. The vessel arrived here six
hours late, with holes chopped
through the floors of the staterooms
along the port side and several rooms
on the upper deck gutted.
For more than two hours six
streams of water were played into
the engine room and down the shaft.
To add to the confusion, oil was
pumped from the tanks, to prevent an
explosion, through nozzles, on the
upper deck, drenchine manv tnev

smoke filled the corridors. To add
to the confusion, the oil tanks were
emptied as best they coulj be, and,
as the frightened passengers scur
ried out of their staterooms, they
were drenched with streams of dis
tillate. To get water into the engine room
holes were chopped through the port
stateroom wans, and, after two
hours of hard work, the crew won
the upper hand.
