ROGUE VALLEY SAYS
California Pears Disappear, Leavlnj
Field to Rogue River Fruit Deal
ers of New York Enthusiastic Over
Prospects for Local Pears.
Southern Oregon Newtowns, alsa
Favorites Two Carloads From
Griffin Creek Attract Attention.
(By Arthur M. Geary.)
NEW YORK, Feb. 1. (Special
Correspondence.) Thnt the raisiiifj
of pears is. n Hafe bet for the Hogue
River valley is tbo belief of tho
dealers in fruit of New York City.
Southern Oregon Cornice, I)e Anjou,
Hose and Vinter Nelis still decorate
the windows along Urondway. Mont
of them have reached the handn of
the retailers. The California pearn
have dlsapjicared, leaxnng the field
undisputably to the Rogue River
It is quite interesting to see tho
many familiar name on the boxen
in the fruit stands and down on
Greenwich and Washington streets.
I had no ideal before arriving in
New York, that the name of Medford
would welcome me so frequently.
Tear Demand Growing
The fmit brokers and merchants
'predict a growing demand for the
jComico and Hose pears csjiecinlly.
i Tho Huerre Dose, because of lu gol
den brown color, unique tdiapc, de'b'e
ious flavor nnil ability to stand ship
ment, unmnrred, is more popular with
some even than tbo Cornice. There
arc certnin quantities of inferior
Huerre Hoso pears raised in New
York, which is n handicap to the
Roguo River variety until the differ
ence is found out.
A. R. Rule, manager of the North
American Fruit Exchange, prefers
the Cornice." There never will bo
a lasting overproduction of Cornice
pears. A pea.-on of overproduction
would prove u blessing in disguise,
as it would educate tbo people.
There is not one person in a hun
dred that knows what u Cornice
"A few yenrs ago there was no de
mand for Florida grnpc fruit. After
a year of low prices and boosting the
demand was increased many fold.
Now nearly every cheap restaurant
in the city, including all of Cbilds'
restaurants, servo them ns a luxury
and their patrons do not find them
too expensive, although the growers
are being left u handsome profit."
Newtowns In Demand
Tbo Roguo River valley Yellow
Newtowns enjoy tho favor of tho
men of Greenwich nnd Washington
streets, as well as do tho pears. Not

On Erie pior No. 20 yesterday morn

Yellow Nowtowns from It. H. Wil

to admit that they had seen nono
