Secretary of Horticulture
Commission Reports
Increase of Trade Discussed and
a Few Pointers for
BALEMV Dec. 9 -Hon. Lloyd T. Rr-
' Bolds, Commissioner of Horticulture for
' th Second District. has Just completed
till biennial report to the Btate Board
of Horticulture, to be submitted by that
board to the legislature in January. He
J ' report a considerable Increase la the
' "'acreage devoted to. fruit culture In the
district under Urn Jurisdiction. The report
In full la as follows:
f To the Honorable Btata Board of Horti
culture: Gentlemen! I herewith submit my bi
ennial report for the Second District. In
- my last report I attempted to give some
' Idea of the sis of the district, the acre
' - ejre devoted to frutts and the land avall
, able for that purpose. In the present re-
port, therefore, no attempt will be made
; to give a description of the territory In
1 ' eluded In this . report.
The Willamette Valley has In some re
; Teots been at a disadvantage In the
- marketing of her 'fruits, from the very
f tot that all varieties of deciduous fruits
can too : grown successfully. At first
glance this would seem to be a decided
'benefit, enabling her fruit growers to
nave a targe and Increasing trade In such
fruits as would allow them to greatly
i rolon- her shloDinc season. In prac
tice, however, with the exception of
1 irunea. the growers of the different torn-
f " tnunitles havs so selected their trees that
they are not able to ship carloads of any
ingle variety cjf fruit, whether it be cher
ries, pears or apples. As a consequence
1 - "thr are compelled to accept very low
prices for their products, because a buyer
; snust spend too much time traveling ana
collecting his fruit before he can make
x ft shipment. The remedy for this lies
-etth the -rowers themselves. At every
Shipping point, the fruit growers In the
. . Vicinity Should organise an association,
-j If their orchards are small, they should
1 agree to top work their trees Into a few
verletlet. which do well In their particu
lar locality,
They should study and practice the
Sast methods in the cultivation land
SDrerins- of their orchards, endeavoring
1 to produce perfect fruit. When fruit is
produced in sufficient quantity, buyers
' can deal 'with the secretary or manager
r of the orgaplzatlon and be assured of re
ceiving first-class fruit of uniform pack.
Better prices can then be secured, for by
...Ihs .present -reetiod -of -purcttttS-"m
- 4 mail-lots from the individual producers
the buyer is not sure that any two lots
will grade alike.
Mot only 'is an organisation an asslst
fte"; immarlteQtui Ptne' producU of 'tne
orchard, but It will tend toward the pro
duction of a better quality of fruit. Each
; member knows Mi fruit must reach the
required standard If he is to sell through
the union, and this naturally leads to
: Arrester cars: on the part of the members.
Aa association of this character should
not 'attempt too much at the start A
vary small beginning may lead to im-
portant results In a few years, while if
a great deal Is attempted .before experi
ence and reputation have been gained,
the Undertaking may be so disastrous as
to discourage further efforts on the part
, of the growers. The advantage of such
an organisation when firmly established
is very apparent.. The Individual is no
longer compelled to hunt a market for
- . bis crop, as this Is done for him, and if
a high standard is always maintained,
fine demand for the product Is likely to
. Increase faster than the supply.
The Hood Hlver Fruit Union, at Hood
River, and the Willamette Valley Prune
' Association, at flalem, ' are illustrations
of successful organisations of fruit
growers, the one handling strawberries
and apples and the other confining Its
operations to dried prunes. In each case
n essential faetor in their success has
been the establishment and maintenance

During the past two years there has
been a large Increase in the acreage of
mall fruits, though there have been no
large plantings of orchards. Changes can
be noticed from year 10 year, mti,
that orchardists In dif
ferent localities are learning what fruits
are best adapted to their particular soil
and olevatlon, and are working over their
orchards accordingly, finding it most
profitable to work in harmony with their
natural advantages.

of the United States,
NEW YORK, Dee. 9. Former President Grover Cleveland entered the meeting
of the National Civic Federation this morning Just before the call to order. He
was warmly greeted by Archbishop Ireland and BenatQr.Hanna and ass invit
ed to a seat on the platform, but declined. Several Important addresses were
mode today, the first speaker being John H. Goman,. who, with Carroll . D.
Wright, hue charge of the Investigation of the question . of restricting the out
put of the United States. He said this question must be considered entirely
separate from that of wages. He held that the labor unions were right In de
manding high rates of wages, but that their unfairness came when they began
to place restrictions upon the amount of labor thaf should be performed by each
Individual workman.

Low Rates to the Coast Will Bring
-More Than 100,000
Settlers Here.
The large amount of business done by
the railroads during the time the set
tlers' rates have been In effect has caused
them to resume the same to take effect
on 'February 16 next and continue until
April SO.. The" roads have decided that
the same low one-way second class "set
tlers' " rates will be In effect, from the
East from all points on or reached by the
local transcontinental roads as heretofore
mads In tha spring and fall months.
MINALS. The rates decided upon and Issued by
the O. R. & N. Co. from North River ter
minals except Sioux City via Huntington,
will be as follows; To Umatilla, Spokane
and ' Intermediate main and branch line
points, $22.68: to all points west of laia
tilla, 626; to Portland. $25; to all points In
Oregon on the Southern Pacific main and
branch lines south of Portland, to and
Including Ashland, $26: to Puget Sound,
via Portland (not north of 8eattl), $26;
to Puget Sound, via Spokane, $25; from
Sioux City, $2.60 higher.
The rates from Minneapolis and St.
Paul, via Spokane, will be as follows: To
Umatilla and Intermediate points. $22.60;
to all points west of Umatilla, including
Heppner branch, to Portland, to points
east of Umatilla and south of Walla
Walla, and to all points in Oregon on
the Southern Pacific main and branch
Mnes south of Portland to and includ
ing Ashland. $25.
" The rate from Chicago to Umatilla,
Spokane and Intermediate points, $30.59:
to all points west of Umatilla, to Sort
land and Puget Sound. $33; to all points
In Oregon on Southern Pacific, main 'and
branch lines-south of Portland to and in
cluding Ashland. $35.
The rates from St. Louis to Umatilla,
Spokane and Intermediate points, $27.60;
to all points west of Umatilla Including
Heppner branch, to Portland, Puget
Sound, to all points in Oregon on
Southern1 Pacific to and Including Ash
land. $30.
The low rates will. It Is estimated,
bring more than 100,000 settlers into Ore
gon, Washington and Idaho. This is al
most entirely due to the extensive work
being done by yie Harrlman Immigration
Bureau in, Chicago,, -whieh la. la charge of

Portland will at last be provided with a
flreboat. Action was taken on this, mat
ter at a Chamber Commerce meeting
this morning. Resolutions were also
passed indorsing the Oregon Mining Ex
change. The matter ot obtaining a part
of the transport trade of the govern
ment was also discussed and John Bar
rett was Indorsed as Minister to Japan.
Thoso present at this meeting were L.
A. Lewis, C. E. Ladd. Lewis Russell. Wil
liam 8. Slbson, W J.' Burns and Adolphe
Wolfe. . .
The special committee on flreboat
handed in a report, stating that it had
come to the conclusion that the only way
Portland could huve a flreboat was the
passage of tha foowlng bill by the Leg
islature. The report was adopted and
the secretary Instructed to have the biU
appear before the Legislature. .
The bill Is as iouowb:
"An act to authorise the City of Port
land to levy a special tax for the pur- !
pose of acquiring a flreboat.
"Be it enacted by the Legislative As
sembly of the State of Oregon:
Section 1. The Council of the City of
Portland is hereby authorixed ana em-
,x in it. Hikx-etlnn to assess, levy
