The outlook for the fruit market is
now interesting the fruit growers of
Koguo River Valley. Contradictory
reports are in circulation as to the
probable yielils in the other fruit dis
tricts of the United States, by some
it appears that there would be a big
shortage and others give it out that
there will bo a large crop. The rice
outlook is equally as uncertain. The
indications thoutru are Unit fair prims
will prevail for the fictitious boom
of lust full in prices and tho sub-e-iueut
complete collapsti of the mar
ket will make the buyer shy of gamb
ling iu fruit and as the increase iu
fruit productions is not keeping op
with the iucreiute iu the population of
the country and the demand exceeding
the supply prices must stiffen.
One of tho clos st observers of the
rnni conditions or ttie country is
Horace O. .Day, of Sgobel A Day,

S. A. Hering, ef Portland, euperio
endent for Oregon for the Pacific
Fruit Express Company, was in Grants
Pass Tuesday to interview Secretary
Meserve, of the Fruit Growers Asso
ciation, in regard to the quantity and
the kinds of fruit that would be for
shipment from this section of Rogue
River Valley this season The Pacific
Fruit Express tympany is a corpora
tion within the Southern Pacific
organized last year for the purpose
of supplying refrigerator cars for ship
ping fruit For years past tbs Ar
mour Company of Chicago, auppliud
all the railroads in the United States
with refrigerator cars aud controlled
the fruit carrying trade of the
country. But the railroads are one
by one breaking loogn from this giant
monopoly and last year the Southern
Pacific installed refrigerator cars of
their own on all their linos. These
cars are muoh superior to tho old
Armour cars, they beiug larger aud
made more nearly nou-condiictor of
heat and cold, aud they have the fur
ther advantage of having larger ico
tanks which iusures the keepiug of
pears, peaches and berries in bettor
condition wheu shipped duriug hot
weather. Mr. Hering hue charge of
all fruit carrying business iu Orciou
for bis company and during the snm
er aud fall mouths he has an exceed
ingly busy time. He stated to Secre
tary Meserve that the indications were
that larger shipments of fruit wi uld
be made from Oregon this season
than In au former year. The acreage
of fruit iu the state is steadily in
creasing and the growers are becoming
more proficient in producing a perfect
fruit and iu putting up a pack that
in honesty and attractiveness meets
the demands of r'-e ettT of
trade and that w i a ant i ,-ut
