States Indian Agent I,. A. Wright
anil his force of special police were
overpowered by a mob of Intoxicated
Indians on the Suhnbn reservation
Sunday night. The trouble was
caused by Wright's refusal to allow
liquor on the reservation during the
Indian llesta which opened that
night. One of the officer, Jack
Meek, was placed In the reservation

into the donations as they are and if
be sses that his company can aid
in'developing any industry by giving
lower rates or in any way whatever,
bs proceeds to'aot accordingly.
Mr. Malboeuf gave the convention
something to think about in the mat
ter of statistics and be got down
among tbe delegates, where he coo Id
talk co them in a heart-to-bearl
manner. He was brim fall of bis sub
ject, which was to tell what the
southern Pacifio bas been doing and
what it proposss doing in order to
promote the growth and development
of this entire stats.
Us noted the sorpriiiog fact that
whereas the whole state has been
going ahead In all other lines, yet,
iu the matter of fruit growing it
seems to have retrograded and;to bear
oat his contention, he cites the fact
that the dairy industry has grown
from nothing in 18D7 to 17, 000, 000
in 11)07, but in tbs meantime tbe fruit
growing has only advauosd from
11,600,000, in 1897 to leas than $3,000,.
000 In 11)07. He draws the logical
oonolasionn that while the dairying-
baa grown 1700 per cent In 10 years
time, yet fruit growing has only
advanced a very little in comparison,
and when it Is ksown that much ad
vancement has been made in Hood
River and iu the Rogne River sec
tions, tbe natural inferenoe most be
that other localities have failed to ad
Mr. Malboeuf stated that his com
pany had endeavored to foster the
fruit and vegetable industries in Ore
gon by giving the growers the vsry
lowest rates giveu by any road in the
United State, bat the returns shewed
conclusively" that the poprdid uot
appreciate the importance of ""thi
Industry. By way of comparison he
gave the figures from Oalifornia and
Oregou. Lent year there were 0, 000
cars of frait shipped from C.llforui
ana bat 1000 from Oregou, while
California sent out 6000. cars of canned
goods and this state on'y 60. But be
sees brighter coudltlots ahead, for. as
remits of ouly two months' ram
paigu upwards of '.MO.OOO has been
invested iu canneries in the interior
of Oregoa by capitalists and whereas.
at the beginning of the season there
were but three raunerls in operation,
two being .small, at the present time
tin re are three new small ours.
while two of the larger ones have
doubled their capacity, resulting in
the output coming up .to 100 cars for
this teaoou, or doable what it wss last
season, lis says that 16 uw canneries
will be built urxt season and that it
will make the output climb up to
UiKJ cars, or 0,000,000 of the a.'s,' pound
Illustrating the rentou why fruit
growing has not kept pace with the
growth of other industries, he said it
was because the people did uot begin
to realize the prs'ibilities of the pro-
duet and only raised the fruit for the
purpose or sending it to market in a
green state. In fact, the thing which
attracted bis attention to the aiatier
was the way iu which fruit was going
to waste, either because it was un
picked or not sold foi lack of caunery
faeilities. Tbe markets whloh are
tributary to this sretion are Tortlsnd
aud those larger places nearby and
the euormout crop raised soata of that
part of the" state are too great for the
coiitutuptiou of those places, and they
an nut take care of the fruit grown
here, with auy degree of profit to the
grower. Hut tlie natural market for
the fruit is in tin. because it la tire-
served aud has the entire North I
American continent as a market. The
demand for canned goods is far in ex-
cos of the present supply aud uow the
tendencies of families Is to have tlia
unto Ties can . their froits, instead of
want thsm to ever become dis
couraged at low prices, if there was
possibly enough in tbe returns to give
them a living profit, but be asked
them to scientifically study fruit
raising, packing and to make these
things foremost objects-
He informed his beaten that the
Southern Pacific proposed to place the
growers of the Rugae River Valley on
a par with tbe growers of California
and every other part of the coast and
to that end such rates were given as
would enable the growers here to lay
their products down in tbe markets of
San Francisco and Portland so thsy
oould realize as good returns as any
other seotion was obtaining. This
will suable tbe local growers to com
pete with those of the now famous
San Jose, Sacramento and other fruit
Mr. Malboeof stated to tbe Courier
representative that be and hii com
pany were decidedly anxious to lend
every possible assistance to the fruit
growers of this valley and be is giv
ing this important matter his personal
attention and is ready to meet the
growers at ,any time and if there are
any inequalitits or wrongs that oogbt
to be righted, tbe company will gladiy
attend to any and all complaints.

It often does one good to get away
from home, in order to compare notes
and see how well off tbe people are
who are fortunate enough to have
their lots cast iu this favored Rogue
River Valley and that was tbe ex
perience of one of Grants Pass' lead

tbe firm of Cramer Bros., who has
spent the past four months, visiting
his old borne in Hol'aad and also
with friends in tbe eastern part of

"Yes, it did me good to see how
much better off we are right here in

people either In the old country or

with tbe better conditions of tbe

tbe workingman not only gets a living
but occupies a prominent place in the
conditions as they here exist. Over
there the strictest of economy has to
be practiced and even then it is hard
to" keep soul and body together. And
the business man has to look clote to
his affairs if h would make any
thing. One thing which pleased him
greatly was the care and atteution
which those people give to the grow
ing of flowers. Indeed, he says that
they have a great Industry developed
