(From The Chronicle, April 1, 1896.)
The work of excavating for A. M.
Williams & company's new building
was suspended today, owing to the
old Jncobscn building not ycj remov
ed. Some blasting will have to bo
done, and while the old building re
mains it cannot be done.
The Umatilla house has discharged
its Chinese cooks and employed in
place of them some imported chefrf.
These are Mr. Carl Wagner, formerly
of Chllburg's restaurant, Tacoma, and
Albert Bergen, of the New Westmin
ster, Los Angeles.
The weather of the last few days
has not been cold enough to destroy
the fruit buds, and unless something
unusual in that lino happens, there
will be a tremendous output of fruit
In Wasco county. Mr. P. J. Stadelman
says there will bo a profitable demand
for good fruit the coming season, and
Mr. Schanno, speaking upon the sub
ject, says that Alaska will from this
on furnish u constantly growing mnr-
Jtet for fruit, especially winter apples'.
Mr. W. G. Kerns returned from the
Wapinltia country today, and con
firms all previous reports as to the
celerity of work on the McCoy ditch.
A feeling of security is now apparent
among all, caused from seeing a large
force of men dally pushing the work.
Mr. Ehrichsen, the contractor, Isot
firm in his prediction that the work
will bo finished In 90 days, and the
work as progressing now certainly
warrants the belief. This ditch when
completed, will open a largo and val
uable stretch of country to agriculture
and horticulture, which will quadruple
In vAlue when under water.
Mr. Kerns also reports there Is
shortly to be erected noar Wapinltia
a sawmill of 20,000 daily capacity. It
Is to be erected on the Mac D. Lewis
Mrs. J. P. Stewart, who has been 1
the guest of Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Myers
for. sovoral years, wont to Portland
for a few weeks, where sho will visit
her son.
