Put it dom. for' an optimistic local
ity, for. despite the fact that there is
every evidence that the. East is going
td have a big apple crop this season
and that the .Pacific Northwest must
fight for its: market. Hood- River
orchardists are -not a wee bit alarmed
regarding their ability to market their
1928 crop at a profit. , , , .
After all the crop returns are in It
will be. found that Hood River will this
' season . gather upward e SW,008
" boxes. In fact. It will be very sur
prising If Hood River does not gather
fully as many boxes of apples as dur
' Ing 92L when the total in;round num
bers reached 2,600,000 boxes. Frora the
standpoint of Quality, this crop wiQ In
all likelihood surpass that of a year
-ago. ,Then the crop grew so rank that
a large per cent of the output was of
small fruit, a prodnct that is considered
foreign to the Hood River district. This

powered - automobile held up . Mrs!
Prances G. .Clark, keeper of the Ore
gon Electric waiting -room and cigar
stand in the Seward -hotel -as she was
closing up the place at 11 o'clock Tues
day night and took (93 of railroad and
cigar stand money.
Witnesses described - the youths as
about 19 years of age and from 5 feet
6 inches to 6 feet inches in height.
Mrs. Clark had been accustomed to
locking the receipts of the evening in
a strong box and carrying them, to the
clerk of the hotel where they were de
posited in the hotel safe.
' During the evening Mrs. Clark had
seen the youths loitering outside the
waiting room in an automobile, but
did not suspect -anything. Just as she
closed the doors, one youth stepped out
and threatened her with a revolver.
She gave up the strong box.
Within the box was . 178- belonging
to the Oregon Electric and $15 belong
ing, to the cigar stand.
Both bandits were well dressed and
did not affect a disguise.-, -;
A previous attempt was made to
hold up the Oregon Electric waiting
room about six months ago..
The lone taxi bandit who began op
erations in Portland Monday night
made another coup late Tuesday, when
he obtained IS from Dan Makfleld,
Oregon Taxlcab company driver, at
18th and Flanders streets. The robber
hired the cab and asked him to drive
out 18th street. At Flanders he
stopped the cab and took the money
at the point of a gun.
Police say the robber is the same
who held up Riley Wakley, taxicab
driver, Monday night, - when he ob
tained 89. - .
Three footpads attacked James Mur
ray at Fifth and Couch streets late
Tuesday night and robbed him of 117
and a watch, according to a complaint
made to police this morning. Murray
said two of the men held him while
the third went through his pockets.
Murray lives at the Loggers' and

season Hood River will market a great

which It Is Justly famous.
Owing to the stricter grading rules
that Hood Rivera haa nromlsed. the av

in ail likelihood be above the average
for any recent season. , v - ;
One noticeable feature of the Hood
River apple croft this season is. Its
generally mixed character. In tome
orchards the Spitsenberg wilt be the
small crop while in other orchards the
decrease will be in Newtowns. . Some
orchards Indicate a greater total output
than a year ago, others show about
similar prospect while, still others
show a fractional decrease from 192L

to reconsider the $50,000,000 wage cut
effective July 1, If the board finds
that the cost df living has gone up in

The action of the maintenance men
Is expected tot definitely prevent other

The clerks : have negotiated wage
agreements with more than a score of

September 22 Set as Date for
Hanging of F. Bowker's Slay
er; 60 Days Are Allowed for
Filing of Bill of Exceptions.
Oregon City, July i. Russell Hecker
was sentenced this morning by Judge
J. U, Campbell to hang on September
Z3 tor the muraer or TanK Jiowker,
Portland musician, ; of which he was
onvicted Saturday. He Is to be taken
to Salem wthln 20 days.
Hecker Was calm? and showed no
emotion as Judge Campbell sentenced
him and spoke a few impressive words
regarding the crime, and the penalty.
The defense was allowed 60 days
within which to file a bill of excep
tions. No intimation of what action
will be taken was gained this morning.
He stood id - as Judee . Camnbell
called upon him. His three' attorneys
remained seated beside him. No one
else in the courtroom stood. No rel
atives were present, the tragic scene
at the end . of the trial having fore
warned the court.
Before sentence was passed the
Judge asked Hecker If he had any
thing to say: The condemned man
replied in a dear voice :
"Not at this. time, your honor."
He was self-possessed and calm. Just
a trifle pale, as he was throughout
the days of the trial.
When the judge had concluded his
talk and pronounced those ominous'
words, "and you shall be hanged by
the neck until -you are dead, and may
the Father of us all have mercy upon
your soul"1- Hecker sat down. His
attorneys then asked that they be
granted 20 days In which to file a bill
of exceptions -and two weeks in which
to move for a new trial. These re
quests were granted. . - -
Scarcely - s persons, mostly . men.
were present -for the ordeal. After
the' judge convened court and "Hacker
was asked whether he had anything
to say for himself, the judge began:
In a case of this kind, the court
follows the law. He has no discre
tion in the matter. If -I could turn
back, the clock of time and undo that
deed and take away the bitter cup
of sorrow from you- and your relatives,
no one wouldl do- it aulcker than I. -
"As far as this world Is concerned.
I can hold you no hope. But I am
