OUR RICH APPLE LANDS
Southern Oregon Land Are At
Joseph Ol well, of Olwoll Bros.,
the Central Point orcIiaTdista and
frnit doalors, was in Jacksonville
Tuesday, says the Sentinel. Mr.
Olweli iu speaking of the tiip lie
made tliia winter to New Vork, slated
that lna experience led liim to believe
that a person raised iu tho mild
liuiate of Sontlieru Oreogn, had no
conception of an Eastern winter with
the thermometer down to 20 to40 de
grees below zero. Ho haa had several
xperiences with Eastern winters and
lie does not propose to renew the ex
perience any of toner than business
necessity requires Ins presence in tlie
East. lie had plauned to go on to
Loudon, bnt after a mouth's exper
ience with the climate of the Eastern
Const, he concluded that a wiuter
trip across the Alautio ocean wonld
not bo a picnic affair, so being for-
nnnto euongh to arrange his basiuesa
flairs, making a jouruoy to England
uot necessary, he hastened to Kogue
river valley, whore frozeu uoses and
froHtbitteu feet are aukuowu.
Of the apple market, Mr. Olwoll
states that Rogue river apples would
ooutiuue to have a salo at top prices
the best markets of the world, New
York taking the Spitzonbergs, for
meriunns prefer a rod apple, while
Loudon titkos the Newtowns, the
uropeans perfcring the yellow apple.
11 the great markets of New York
city Mr. Olwoll was able to see ap
pies from all sections of the United
States and to learu the preioreuces of
buyers and he fonud the Rogue river
Spitzonbergs and Newtowus not
equalled by apples of those varieties
from any other except Hood River,
which produces as good an apple as
lis valloy, but which does not yield
the profit of Rogne river for it costs
(30 a acre each season iu that valley
for irrigation and for spraying and
cultivation fully as much as in this
valley. The bright color, waxen
polish, und perfect shape, size and
avor of the Rogue River apples.
Mr. Olwoll found, made them sell In
preference to all other apples, and at
much higher price.
Mr. dwell stated that his firm had
shipped East over 100 carloads of ap
plus this year an t had ready sale, but
that they did uot dispose of all their
hipmouts, holding 30 carloads for the
higher prices that awlays prevail iu
the spring. Thcso apples thoy have
11 cold-storugo at Jersey City, just
across the bay from Now York. Mr.
Olwoll has so perfected their market
ing arrangements that his firm ox
poet to largely increaso '.heir fruit
shipments this coming season, and
will extend their operations to other
lections besides Roguo rivor, thoy be
chining to bundle other fruit thii
past season, having shipped several
car loads of apples from tho Umpqna
and the Willamette valley. In label-
ug fruit from this valley they will
hereafter stamp it "Roguo River" and
not Oregon, as has beeu their usage
heretofore. Roguo river fruit has
comn to be rocognized as amoug the
best iu tho United States aud to
brand the boxes Oregon, leads to the
nfemice that the frnit Is of but ordi
nary quality, thus injuring its sale.

06UE RIVER APPLES
Rogue river fruit lauds are being
exploited more exteualvely at the
present time than at any previoua
time since the settlement of that rich
argicultnral aud horticultural district
of Southern Oregou. Embracing a
ide stretch of country within the
couutios of Jackson, Josephine aud
Curry that haa, without attractiug
attention of the outside world, been
developed iuto one of the productive
fruit districts of the Pacific Coast, It
is not surprising that investors have
been attracted by the high returnsH
received by those who pluntcd or
chards that have been In full bearing
for several years and are now in their
prime. In view of what has been
done by those already in the valley,
it la surprising that so small an area,
comparatively, has been devoted to
fruit-growing. The greatest stage of
development has naturally boeu cou-
flood to that section of tho valley,
comprising about ono-thlrd of ita
length, lying adjacent to the railroad
botweon Grants Pass and Ashland.
A fact not genornlly known iu Ore
gon la that the apples of Rogne river
valley find their principal market in
Hamburg, London and other European
markets, where only the fruit of best
keeping qualities ean be shipped, and
that it commands In those markets
the top prices. Representatives of
the foreign dealers are sent to this
country to buy fruit aud contract
ith the packers or growers to take
the fruit direct by rail and water
shipments to its destination, a third
of the way around the world. Fre
quently the apple aro takeu from the
orchards to be packed, with extreme
care, the growers realizing prices that
Would seem beyond all reason by
Eastern apple-growers in what were
for many years considered the beat
apple districts in this country in the
Eastern states. S. L. Beuuott, of
Medford, Or., roceived U43. 10 from
the apples grown ou one aero of
gionud last year. For another acre
of a less desirable varioty received
280. There are numerous liistnuces
of a single crop of fruit paying several
times tho original cost (if the land at
oiuts throughout the valley.
Immigration into this region, ac
cording to information recoived
through Immigration agents of the
railroad, promises to be groater dur
ing the present yoar than during any
previous period of its history. People
oomiug from the Eastern aud Middle
states, whore they have had to con
tend with severe winters that occa-
ionally entirely ruin tho fruit crop,
and iu other years greatly diminish
it, aro acquainted with the conditions
in this atate west o'f the Cascades and
aro Investiagtiug tho opportunity for
investment. It is amazing to them
that the oountry has not been dousely
populated long before, and with the
prloes at which hinds are sold, whin
compared with relative production,
they eagerly grasp the chance offered.
Fruit posts aro practically unknown,
which is another strong foaturo with
newcomers. In some soot Ions of the
country, orchards are ao badly affected
that tho posts have caused a ban to be
placed on their frnit production.

applies only to districts where separ

effect of the Attorney-General's
opinion is that while a Harvard

ploma iu the common schools.

The Lincoln Legion is a new tem-

the new pledge, Cleopaa Breckeurldgo

to total abstiueiico D7 years ago by
Lincoln himself, at the close of a
stirring temperance sjHieoli. A nne

The Epworlh Leaguo is already
busy with a similar work for total
abstinence. Wo hail with' eager
gladness tho advent of this legion,
with which we can co-operuto fully
and wholeheartedly. Tho pledge

time Is fully ripe for a grout revival
of porsonal and definite temperance

1 FACES SERIOUS
Of Using the Malls for
. lent Purposes.
E. S. Ealon, age about 88 years,
was arrested Monday by Conatable
Nelson J0110.", on a charge of using the
U. S. mails for fraudulent purposes.
Katon had been working near Sny
der's mill, cutting wood, and n0:t
his arrival in town Monday was iden
tified aud placed under arreat, Just aa
he was ou the eve of hia departure for
Kugeuo. Tho Information upon
which the charge is based, was re
ceived In a letter from the city mar
shal of Lewiston, Idaho who sent a
letter signed by E. 5. Eaton, Glen
dale, Oregon, offering to sell one A.
M. Dunn of Lowlston, a (10 bill,
"which could not be told from the
geuuiue, for (1," and stating that
'big money could be mado easy. "
The letter purported to ofTor couuter- '
feit money which could uot be dotoct-
ed from the genuiuo, aud Stated that
the recipient was interested he
could send a money order for (1 aud
11 return would receive a sample $10
bill, with full particulars and rates
fur wholesale quuntites.
Eaton's defense seemed extremely
weak, and was to tho effect that he
proposed to furnish confederate
money, not counterfeit. Iu proof of
his assertion ho referred to a (10 con
federate bll or linitutiou of ouo, which
the olllcer took from his person when
