Am now at sea with my nine girls
We left Honolulu September 4,
5 p. m. There were hundreds
people at the wharf. We were
driven to the boat iu a six-horse
tauy-no. j he girls were dressed
in wnite, wore large Alsha hats and
around their necks and draped over
their dresses were dozens of beauti-
lui leis (garlands of flowers). This
custom is only seen In Hawaii. The

It was, indeed, a grand sight

they stood on the upper deck weep-

We will reach San Francisco to

there and on Saturday we go to
Sacramento to attend the state fair
and leave Sunday for Los Angeles.
We will try very hard to reach
Salem on Saturday, the last day of
the Oregon state fair. It will limit
our southern California tour and
there is so much leing prepared for
us, It looks doubtful about our
reaching Oregon before September
24 or later. We will spend more
time in Oregon when we do reach
there, than in any other state. We
have had a smooth trip yet we are
all anxious to get on land again.

heavy frosts occured in the southern

Saturday mornings. In the plateau

warm until Saturday, when cloudi

AN ACTIVE INTEREST SHOWN
The Southern Pacifio Doing Much
Toward Promoting and Stimu

''C. A. Malltoeuf, district freight
agent of the Oregon Lines, "was in
Eugene on Thurday. Iu an inter
view a Register representative learn
ed that Mr. Malltoeuf's mission at
this time is to arouse the valley to
the importance of fostering and de
veloping the fruit industry, where
by canneries will be in greater de
mand and growers will reap higher
reward for their industry. Mr.
Malboeuf said that already there is
widespread activity in the fruit
business in the Willamette Valley
the increased output having started
expenditure of fully $250,000 in
building uew canneries and enlarg-
Ijng those now in operation
we consider that not over 50 cars
of canned fruit will be shipped out
of the valley this year, we can re
adily see the opportunity ahead for
expansion of this industry into one
of the largest aud most profitable
in western Oregon. The Southern
Pacific has taken up this industry
with a vim, as it did the dairy busi
ness several years ago, and has
grown rapidly and is still expand
ing. 'The present season,' said Mr.
Malboeuf, 'has been noticeable lor
one of the biggest crops of berries
and cherries on record. Favorable
conditions throughout western Ore
gon have made the yield a large
one. Within the past two years,
the people of the valley have plant
ed large numbers of blackberries,
loganberries, raspberries and other
fruit roots, largely with the view of
marketing the fruit in Portland
The very large yield this summer
exceeds the most sanguine expecta
tions, and the Portland market was
oversupplied. Nearly 1,000 tons of
cherries alone were shipjed from

will be a more extensive cultivation,

in every way in the introduction of

to assist their cultivation by scien
'This work is bringing result. A
number of catiuing establishments
will be erected within a short time.
At present there are two fruit can-

started this year at Grants Pass,

another large cannery at Salem and
another at Newberg.
'AH sections of the valley are
awakening to the possibilities of
fruit growing in connection with
the canning industry and by next
spring it is likely that 1500,000 will
be invested in canneries throughout
'The output of canned iruiu on
the Southern Pacific lines in this
state, outside of Portland, during
1906, was less than 50 car loads.
This year the output is larger, and
by next year there should be near

five years, shipments of tinned
