HOOD RIVER. Oct. 13.-Voo4 RlTer
closed its annual fruit fair Saturday
evening, having made the finest exhibit
the famoui little valley has ever shown,
as It raises fruit unexcelled and perhaps
unqualed In the whole world, the finest
collection of apples ever gathered under
one roof since Eve plucked the first
pippin In the garden of Eden. It has
been said of this valley, tucked away and
hidden In the very heart of the Cascades,
that it was "a section of Paradise saved
and kept for the purpose of showing
mankind what our original parents lost."
Yet If the apple our good Old grandraotfi
er plucked In the long ago was as fair to
look upon as those grown In Hood River,
we forgive the old lady for her yielding
to a passionate desire to flash her teeth
on them, and wonder at her generosity
at giving the timid Adam even the core.
Hood River, the town. Is cuddled under
the hills, up which you have to go per
haps 600 feet to get "down"' into, the
valley. In front rolls the grand Old Co
lumbia, while to the east Hood River, a
beautiful mountain stream from amid the
glaciers of Mt. Hood, rushes down to
mingle with Its flood. The town has a
population of about 1000, and Is an Idyllic
place'." 'Beautiful "residences, half hiddeTi
by sturdy oak trees, well kept yards, ver
dant lawns, a profusion of flowers, shade
and sunBhlne, and air good enough to eat,
and to these good things which Nature
has given Is added those conveniences of
modern life, electric lights, fine water
supply, magnificent roads, and a rural
mall service what more could heart de
But to our mutton, which In this case
is apples.
Several years ago Hood River held its
first fruit fair, and It was a decided suc
cess, though beside the one Just closed it
would look like 30 ctmts. Fruit growing
was in its infancy, orchards" were small,
and, being planted ' for home purposes,
contained almost as many varieties as
there were trees. This has been changed,
and orchards are now set, and varieties
chosen to suit the markets; and as a'busi-
ness' proposition. The summer apple has
been cut out, and outside of the Graven
stein, the acknowledged king of all fall
apples, none but the winter varieties are
grown. Hood River has had to learn for
Itself, by experimenting, the varieties, the
soil adapted to them", the manner of culti
vation and pruning, and, the hardest les
son of all, the successful overcoming of
those fruit pests that are the orchardlst's
bane and his undoing. Hood River has
learned these lessons and at mtach cost,
but she has arrivTd at that stage where
she knows she is right, and . ia going
ahead. She Is no longer afraid of moths,
and San Jose scales, fungi and fruit ex
pdfts, but knows she can work out hei
salvation and her success in spite of all
of them.
The town was prettily decorated with
bunting and flags, and artistically draped
windows, where fruit trees three or four
years old were shown In tubs, the limbs
hanging full of beautiful fruit. Th ex
hibit was held in a canvas pavilion, on
Oak street, and covered a space 112 feet
long by 60 feet wide. Through the center
of this wag a broad table, containing
plates of apples and other fruits, bul

pride, packed In boxes ready for ship
ping, but with the lids off, showing all
the types, from the golden blonde to the
yellow Newton, down through the deeper
shades of auburn, like the Spitsenberg
and Ben Davis, to some almost black in
their exuberance of color. In size they
gauged from the 'Wolf River, a handsome
light red globe of toothesomeness, weigh
ing from 20 to 24 ounces, down to the
little Lady-apple, yellow and rose-cheek
ed, scarcely more than a mouthful for a
Newport belle. Then, while admiring the
apples themselves, you could not help but
note the artistic manner In which they
were. pocki. Every., .apple.. was -put in
"just so,"-and the "boxes were filled full
and tight, so that no movement could
take place in handling them. Your Hood
River orchardist is wide awake. He is
not-only up to date, but he makes the
dates, and he knows that his fruit must
arrive at its destination uninjured and in
its most attractive condition. He gives
his products the benefit of the best and
most artistic appearance possible, and
the result la that with the best apple on
earth, put up in its most attractive form,
he oan meet and down all rivals.
There were probably 360 boxes of ap
ples in the exhibit, but to try to describe
them all or any of them is much like at
tempting to . convey to some one else . the
art and laughter and pleasure of last
night's champagne supper. It cannot be
done. You must see for yourself, and
then you can realize the futility of trying
to tell some one Ise The exhibit at
tracted much attention and was visited
by fruit growers from all parts of the
Northwest. Portland was quit well rep
resented. The Dalles turned out several

as remote as Omaha, bad their, represen

It would b hard to estimate the value

serve to give some idea.
Sears & Porter 11 years ago began oper
ation on a piece of wild land about three
miles from the town of Hood River on
the "east Bide." Their capital was
muscle. Today they own one of the best
orchards in the valley, and are on Easy
street. Two years ago, from 287 trees, WO
five-year-olds and 197 of six years, grow
ing on something lets than 2 acre's,
they gathered and packed 1414 boxes of

same orchard last year eight trees of
Baldwins yielded 104 boxes that brought
$1 per box. or at the rate. of 11350 per
acre. As the trees acquire age the yields
will be largely Increased, and to put the
possible returns in dollars and cents
would make this article read tpo much
like an Aladdin story, but you can figure

According to prominent East Side resi
dents the City Council can do the East
Side no greater injustice than to refuse
the asked-for franchise to the Portland
Railway Company.
The East Side has expanded in every
direction houses are going up everywhere
and all the street car lines now under
operation are well patronised. During
the early mroning hours the cars are
crowded with a struggling ' mass of hu

DENVER, Col., Oct. 13. John
C. Osgood, of Denver, is the
man who enjoys the record of
having bested John W. Gates.
The Colorado Coal and Fuel in
cident is presumably not yet
closed, but Osgood declares he
is not worrying and Is prepared
to give Gates all the fight he
wants. Osgood fought Gates a
fine battle recently over the
advantage in possession of rich
fields of coal and made it one of
the Incidents of recent financial
operation. The battle was ex
ploited In the press at the time,
and created a sensation on ac
count of a man daring to dis
pute the desires of a man who
is so closely allied to the trust
Interests In New York. It is
bruited ' about that Gates
planned to annihilate Osgood,
and that he cherishes the spirit
of revenge yet. Intending to

New car lines are needed and needed
bad. F. S. Dunning, a prominent East
Side business man, said:
"All this talk of protesting against
granting a franchise to railway compa
nies for the purpose of operating their
cars on a certain number of East Side
streets is wrong. I don't think that these
people who protest have the real East
Side push and energy. They are doing
the worst possible thing that could be
done to keep back the development of the
"T "contend that the more street car
lines that a city has the more prosperous
that town will be. You can not show me
a city in which the valuation of the prop
erty on a street is reduced on account of
the railroad having tracks there. On
the contrary I can show you thousands
of thoroughfares that have been made
the leading pne of their locality by having
the cars pass their doors.
"The East Side Is a large territory and
should hae a great many more street
car lines In order to give the different
localities the time schedule they are en
titled to. I don't say that these asked-for
franchises should be granted just because
the railway company has asked for them,
but for the reason that a number of sec
tions of the city badly need them.
Another thing that I think should be
brought up and, and that Is that In every
franchise given to a company there should
be : a clause Inserted that svery street
torn up the companies they should put
back into the same condition that It for
merly was. This part of a franchise
should be made as strong as posslo'la.
