FAILED TO SCORE
In Annual Game Locals Out
played Visitors in Last Half.
O i i heavy field in the pres
enc o' eobably 1,500 spectators
tht O C eleven played the Uni
ve .'. , t ureeon a scoreless
gam' he OAC field Saturday
aft " 1, own. The Agrics held
Or- fcou ven during the first halt
wh'C:i enkd in no perceptible
gain- tor either side. From start
to finis-t it was a game .of punt
ing and kicking:. The ball was
like ilass and many fumbles
weie made by both teams.
Li the first hilt U. of O. car
ried the ball by short, persistent
gains to ihe 15-yard liue and lost
it on a fumble. OAC tried a
place kick but failed. The OAC
men outplayed the visitors two to
onr throughout the last half, and
it is a tjtneral belief that had
there bren five minutes more of
play OAC would have sored, as
their eiuiuiance was something
re aikabie, while the heavier
U. ot O men plainly showed
fatigue. The last half was play
ed entirely in U. of O. territory.
Time was called with the ball od
Orr gou's 20-yard line.
In the latter half Oregon kept
putting in new men and failing
to make gains by punting, Ore
gon tried mass plays, making
slight gains for a time by a sup
erior weight of team but this
tailed, and they resorted again to
punting. Wolfe of OAC played a
splendid game as dfd Harming,

bunch. Two hundred OAC
rooters gave the serpentine march
through town after the game.
OAC rooters gave the team the
best support ever seen on the lo

BENTON APPLES THERE.
In Portland Show Window
Came From Corvallis.
Last Thursday a display of
big, luscious apples in a show
window at Olds, Wortman and
Kings, Portland, caused many a
fruit lover to pause and admire,
then hurry on his way convinced
that Willamette . Valley apples
cannot be beaten.
The display came from the
counties of Yamhill, Marion,
Polk, Linn, Lane and Benton.
Th : purpose of theexhibit was to
combnat the idea that Hood
River is the best apples section
in Oregon, and furthermore to
down the declaration made by
growers of that section that the
fine apples produced by Millard
O. Lownsdale on his little fruit
from farm near Portland are exc
eptions to rule in the Vallev.
Some of the apples in the dis
play were shipped from Corvallis
by E. B. Horning. They were
grown ou the Groves ranch a
mile or two west of town and
were large, sound, beautifully
colored and of delicious flavor.
Mr. Horning shipped four
N boxes, one Nothern Spy and the
rest of the King variety. Dr.
Withycombe and Prof. Lewis
of OAC were first to become in
terest in sending samples from
Benton to be placed in the display
and through the co-operation of
Mr. Horninjt Benton was thus
Ranchers and truit growers of
this section are resenting the
declaration of Hood River that
apples cannot be grown here to
equal those of that locality.
True, .the Willamette Valley
orchards have been neglected for
years and as a result the
product has been of an inferior
quality on an average; but in the
cases where spraying and pruning
has been kept up and other care
bestowed upon the trees, the
product is first class in size,
texture, color, shape and keep

So much is being said in the
public press about the apple in
dustry in the Valley just now,
that the remarks of the "Rural
Northwest" concerningthe recent
apple show held iu Polk county I
seem peculiarly suggestive and
timely. It savs:

more of apples than ever before.
They will eat more apples and

realizing that it is possible to get

fruit, provided they are willing
to pay a reasonable price for it.
There is a good deal said in
the papers about the need of

much that poor men don't care
anything about it. What is need

The new law relating- to spray
ing was upheld last Friday at
Oregou City, when the jury in
the suit ot T., R. A. Sell wood vs.
James li.Reid brought in a ver
dict for the defendant after being
out about three hours. The
verdict was expected by all part
ies to the case, and the jury was
out much longer than antici
pated. The trial of the case aroused
intense interest, not ' only in
Clackams county but in other
sections of the state, as it was
generally considered a test of the
law under which Commissioner
Reid, while acting in his official
capacity, notified T. R. A- Sell-
wood 01 Milwaukie to spray the
trees in his orchard, and after
his failure to do so took some
men, went into the orchard and
cut down 34, prune trees that
were infested with San Jose scale.
The law has been bitterly oppos
ed and antagonized andthe victory
tor the adherents of clean fruit is
generally satisfactory, says the
The rulings of Jude McBride
on questions that arose during
the trial were in favor of the de
fendant in every instance. The
court said that Reid had a right
to cut down the trees, after Sell-
wood had failed to compjiy with
the law, and hisinstructions to
the jury were clear and decisive.
He said there were only three
propositions to be considered
whether or riot the orchard was
infected; whether the plaintiff
had " been notified in time - in
which to spray, " and whether he
haft sprayed.- r - -
The- court defined the duties
of the fruit inspector, and said
when the official found an orch
ard in a diseased condition it was
his duty to notify the owner, and
after he had failed and neglected
to spray his trees, . the inspector
could use discretion , in either
cutting down the orchard or
spraying the trees himsel f an d
charging the expense as a lien
against the property. He ruled
that it was not necessary for the
fruit inspector to warn of the con
sequences, that might ensue in
the event of failure to spray, and
that ignorance - of the law was no
The result of the trial ,, will no
doubt make things easier for the
fruit 'inspectors; : who J,have ' no
easy task and , have ; aroused the
enmity of . scores ; of people.
Merchants who deal in fruit, it is
alleged, have made it a point to
defy the law, and it is considered
likely that violation and unlaw
ful practice will now come to an
end. . '
