to manufacture 120 dozen of good brooms,
which sell in the market for $3 50 per
dozen. At this rate the gross eai mugs on
his crop amonnt to $140 per acre. On this
basis '25 acres would yield ttia farmer $3500

hia brooms. The net profit would be large.

The stale horticultural society began
its session in tbis city last evening, and
was attended by a large number of lt-Jies
The Dalles string band, under the lead
ership of Professor Birgfeld, and Miss
Hoi lister at the piano, opened the exer
cises with a selection of music, well ren
dered. Or. G. E. Sanders then statea the object
of the meeting, and Mr. John Micbell de
livered tbe address of welcome. He ex
tended a cordial greeting to tbe members
of the society and visitors, and spose of
the possibilities and probabilities of the
Inland Empire in regard to the d .velop
ment of the fruit industry, closing his re
marks with exteuding the freedom ot the
city to the visitors.
Dr. Card well, the president of the so
ciety, respooded, and expressed to the cit
izens of The Dalles the tbaoks of the so
ciety for the generous welcome extended
to them. He spoke of the high stao liog
of the fruit grown ia this vicinity; that it
bad received acknowledgments from
many horticultural exhibits, and through
tbe efforts of Mr. Einile Schanno had
taken premiums at tbe world's fair in
At tbe close of his remarks the band
rendered a cho ce piece of music "Hun
garian Dance" (Brahms,) which was re
ceiyed with applause by tbe audience.
Mrs. S. L. Brooks was then introduced
and read a well-written essay en flowers,
which was full of excellent ideas and
beautiful thoughts, and clothed in the
choicest poetical language.
The next selection was "The Twilight
Hour," and it was heartily cheered. It
was exceptionally well rendered, and
was a rare treat to lovers of music
Mr. Henry E. Dosch then read a very
able paper on the "Nicaragua Canal and
its Probable Benefit to tbe Oregon Fruit
Grower." He was tbe delegate trom the
Portland Chamber of Commerce to tbe
Nicaragua canal convention which met
in tbe city of New Orleans November
30ih and December 1, 1892, aod as such
had given careful study to the subject.
Mr. Dosch quoted briefly from bis re
marks before the convention, setting forth
the large export trade of the Pacific
coast,and the necessity for cheaper freight
rates. "Tbe present route of our wheat
product," he said, "is 17,000 miles from
Portland, Oregon, to Liverpool, and to
Havre or the North sea it is 18,500 miles.
Five-sixths of this shipment goes to tbe
United Kingdom aod one-sixth to the
continent. The Nicaragua canal would
furnish the means of exporting this in
vessels of 6000 tons burden, which would
carry it so cheap that every farmer in
Oregon would reap a large reward io tbe
difference of our present and future
freight rates." If tre canal were in op
eration tbe wheat which costs now 45
rents a bushel for shipment could proba
bly be made for 12 or 15 cents. It would
open up new mantels for our salmon ex
ports, aud by tbis means the south, mid
dle west and South American countries
would be furnished with a cheap food
supply. . The salmon pack is placed at
800,000 cases, and the freight on these is
$1 psr iuO pounds,and on the entire ship
ment $560,000. With tbe canal completed,
this woaid cost not more than 40 ceats
per 100 pounds, or a saving of more than
eoe-ball. The saving on Iruit exports
would be much larger, and where $4&0
and $550 are charg.d now cold storage
steamers would take apples, pears and
other fruits to eastern point for $200 and
$130 respectively. Mr. Dosch showed
conclusively the advantage of this great
improvement,and his words were listened
to with the closest attention.
Tbe paper by Mr. R. D. Allen, of Bil
verton, was postponed until the afternoon
session today, and tbe band favored the
audience with "Picadore" (aoussa) and
the meeting adjourned, every person ap
pearing well pleased with the evening's
The program of the afternoon session
today was not carried out tully. Hon. T.
R. Coon, ot- Hood River, was absent, and
also Col. Babcock, of Walla "alia. A
discussion was had on fruit drying and
evaporating, in which the president, Dr.
Card well, R. D. Allen, of SilverUn; W.
C. Davidson, of, The Dalles; and Mr.
Brown, of Eugene, took part. A great
many pertinent Suggestions were made,
and which if reduced to practice would
be of great utility. Mr. S. A. Clarke, sec
retary ol the Northwestern Fruit Grow
ers' Association, read a very lull report of
tbe proceedings, and oflered some very
good bints and suggestions.
Arrested and Held.
Mr. fl. M. Bollinger, a detective ot
Boise, Idaho, caused tbe arrest yesterdt)
evening of James Morrison, who is
charged with the crime ot abducting Mrs.
J. B. Brown, of Boise, and four children.
Morrison lived for a short time in tin
Brown family at Boise, aud succee led in
inducing Mrs. Brown to leave her hus
band aod take with her the four chiidrej.
Mr. and Mrs. Brown lived very b.ippty
together until Morrison became ac
quainted with them, and appeared to
uavo complete coulrol of the wife. Sir.
Bollinger followed them to Pendleton,
where Morrison pretended to practice
medicine; but finding- himself trucked
Morrison left and came to this city yes
terday ' morning, where he registered his
and Mrs. Brown's names as Jas Morrisou
aod wife. The detective followed thorn

but a few hours until tbey were arresied
by an officer. To take them back for tbe
crime alleged will requre requisition
A Portland paper aaya that on the last
trip of the steamer Elwood up tne Willam
ette, William Armstrong, the second en
gineer of that boat, was lost overboard
hile tbe boat was making the trip from
Oregon City to Salem. Nu one saw the
young man tall overboard, bnt bis sudden
disappearance and otber oircunatances
leave no doubt as to his fate. Daring tbe
afternoon, Armstrong was on duty in tbe
engine room. Tbe chief engineer ruturoed
to the room after a abort absence and
missed Armstrong from his post.
Tbe oil can nsed in oiling the machinery
was also missing and Armstrong's cap wa
found lying on the machinist's bench, bat
oo trace of the young man could be found.
Tbe most plausible iutereooe in connection
with bis disappearance is tbat he went out
on the fan tail to oil up tbe bearings about
the wheel, . lost his footing and was preci
pated into the Willamette. Tbat he could
not swim is a fact verified by his own
statement to that effect, made to Captain
Lee a few days ago.
The aeasion -last eveniog at the couit
house was called to order by the president,
Dr. Ordweil, at 8 o'clock, a-id tbe first
number was an overture by Prof. Birgfeld
at the piano and Mr.' Hen y Burcbtuff O i
the vii lin. This was well no ived, and
was a fitting prelu'e to the intensely inter
esting exercises of the meeting.
Dr. G. E. Senders then iutroduced the
sun jail of more etriogent laws in favor of
horticultural lawe. He . was a learner in
the business of fruit growing, and was con
stantly being educated into the require
ments for success. "Ever since Mother Eve

successful. In speaking of spraya he highly
recommended Loiidun Purple instead of

Hon. T. R. Coon, of Hood River, being
absent, bis paper on the cultivation of
strawbetries was read by Mr. Brown, ot
Eugene. The essay was very exhaustive of
tbe ' subject and treated ot every de
partment in detail. In strawberries,
the writer said, there weie both health aud
'wealth, aud it was properly tbe stepping
stone to horticulture. These berries pro'
doce crop quicker than otber fruit, but
lequire constant care and attention. Do
the right thing in the right place is a good
moto to fillow. Strawberries are great
eaters and drinkers, aud shonlJ be fed ac

ary at Hood River; but this must be done
by ditches, and not by ft odinyr spray

The paper of E'inrr Stearns, of Salt Lake,
Utah, on the Prepaiatiou of Soils for Horti
cultural Purposes by Dynamite was read by
Mr. T. A. Hudson, who srated that he had
but little practical knowledge in fruit-grow
ing or tree planting, but the author of the
essay, Mr Stearns, was a former resident
of Oregon, and had giyen considerable at
tention to the latter. Mr. Stearns p efaced
bis piper by the statement that nourish
ment should be given to the roots of trees,
as these are the avenues through which sus
tenance is received. The tendrils will reich
laterally aud horizontally for moisture, aod
it is always a good plan to loosen the
ground surrounding the trees. Successful
fruit-growers plow detply, sometimes tbe
plow g ling down two feet into the ground.
Tbe ground may be loo-eued eight and ten
feet deep by means of dynamite, aod the
roots will receive the benefit of all preoip
