FRUIT GROWERS TO
Will Meet Saturday. Septembr 22
to Take Steps to Have State
... Law Enforced. .
A meeting of the Grants Pass Fro it
Growers Association will be held at
the Courier office on Saturday, Sep
tember 22, at 1 :S0 p m Every mem
ber of the Association is expected to
be present as tbere are several matters
of importance to be acted on. The
meeting will be open to all froit
growers and every person who has an
orchard, even of bat a dozen trees, is
invited and expected to be present.
One of the principal matters for
' action will be the adopting of a peti-
tion to the county court asking for the
I appointment of a county fruit in
spector and the recommendiug of a
! suitable person for the position, to
enforce the new state law that makes
it obligatory on all owners of diseased
fruit trees to either free them of pests
or destroy them nnder penalty of it
being done by the inspector and the
cost becoming a lean upon the land.
As every fruit tree owner will be
forced to spray and as the firBt spray
ing will have to be dine so soon as
the leaves are off the trees spray ma
terial will be in demand and the
onion will supply it at cost to all
fruit growers in order to assist them
in cleaning up their orchards. All
who will require spray material will
be expected to give in at this meeting
the amount they will require.
It being impossible to rent a suit
able warehouse in Grants Pass in
which to handle this year's crop of
apples it is necessary that the Associa
tion build a warehouse. At the forth
coming meeting this matter will be
considered and arrangements made to
secure suitable grounds and the erect
ion of the building. As this will
require a legal organization to
properly carry on the business of the
Association aud enable funds to be
secured with which to pay for the
warehouse and fitting it up it will be
necessary to incorporate.
In order to bave a basis on which to
negotiate with dealers for the pur
chase of the apple orop it is expected
that every farmer, who will ship
through the Association, will submit
at the meeting to be held next Satur
day a careful ettimate of the first
grade apples in bis orchard. As there
Is a likelihood of there being a cider
and vinegar factory erected in Grants
Pass this Fall an estimate is wanted
of the non-shipping apples and also of
pears aud prunes.
The success of the Association
means the placing of the fruit in
dustry of this section of Rogue River
Valley on a profitable basis. To
that end it is to the Interest of
both farmers aud business men to aid
tne organization all possible in its
efforts to get the pests eradicated from
the orchards of this section aud of se
onring better market facilities and
better prices for fruit
.there are on exhibition at the
Courier office some samples of peacheg
