HOOD RIVER, OR., APRIL, 16, 1892.
It is a mora! certainty that soma one
with a little money, patience und
: judgment, is going to make a snu.j for
tune out of Hood River hurls. Not
alone some one, but hundred- will do
so. We have here three townships of
the finest orchard land hi the woild,
any ten acres of which, when under
cultivation will yield as much in value,
as any halt section of grain land in
Eastern Oregon or Washington. Ev
ery section when once in orchard and
. in full bearing will yield from $75,0(0
to $100,000 annually. Yet with all t;ur
rich soil and unequalled climate, but
little of our land Is productive. While
this may seem strange to an outsider,
the reason is plainly visible. Most of
our people are land poor. The original
settler took 160 acres and in many cases
double that area. The original settler,
who takes from Uncle Sam ' a farm is
leuerally if not poor, of small means,
and unable to clear or cultivate the
farm when he gets it. , To plant trees
oosts both time and money, and to care
for them until they begin to bear le
juires more money still, for no income
is received for from four to six vears.
The man . without means mmt leave
liis orchards uncared for while he earns
money elsewhere and so, but little can
, be dune. The completion of the irriga
ting ditches through the valley will
change all this. Then the small lruits
will supply the necessary support for
tne farmer and his family, while his
orchards grow, and his time can be de
voted to them. Hood Rivef should be,
und will be the section of small farms
Ten acres will be the average fa'-m, aud
twenty or forty acres the exception.
This means a dense population engaged
in the most attractive of pursuits, and
one too which will allow time for in
tellectual improvement. Thousands of
ticres now lie uncultivated, uncleared
' aud in these lie untold wealth. The
Hood River of to-day is beautiful in
deed, for Nature was in kindly mood
when she planned it. The cool oaks,
the shady drives, the splendid roads,
the grand gorge of the Columbia with
, its majestic stream, "the snow capped
mountain peaks, and crowning all-the
finest climate in the world, these as-

and felt, and realized for word;) are
weak to express, them. The Hood
lliver of twenty years from now will
be cluster of orchards, a place of hand
eome comfortable residence?, the homes
of a prosperous and cotiteuted people,
a summer idyl and the best known and
best liked summer resort in Oregon.
There is a wealth of money in Hood
River lands, aud as we have said the
men with a little capital patience aud
judgment, are going to reap a harvest
'''from them in the near future. Paste
this in your scrap book, and see if we
are not a true prophet.
On Monday; April 4, Senator Mor--,
gan, of Alabama, delivered in the sen
ate a long speech in favor of five coin
age of silver. At its Senator
Sherman, or Ohio, spoke briefly aud a
colloquy took place in which several
participated. The continued decline of
the market value of silver was spoken
of, and fcherman said: '
, It has go-ie down and what can pre
vent it going down? Nothing can pre
vent it from goiiig down. It has been
going down for four centuries. When
America was discovered, eight ounces
of silver were equal to- one of gold.
Now it requires twenty-three to equal
one of gold. Shall we take the cheaper
metal, adopting the methods of the
ancient nations, China and Japan, or
shall we take the dearer metal, that
which is the measure of value in all
European countries now, and which is
getting to be more and more the set-
- tied standard of nil values, of all in eta Is
, of all property, and of all productions?
""T hat is the question. .
No one of the silver senators attempt
ed to answer. ,The decline in the value
of silver follows the universal law of
values. Silver has become very abun
dant, in comparison with gold. This
disproportion has been growing during
four centuries. It was arrested for a
time by the enormous production of
gold in California and Australia, but
during the past twenty years has been
growing again with increasing rapid
ity. Here are averages of the world's
production of gold aud silver from 1801
to 1800, viz: , . '
Gold 1801 to 1850, 50 years. 787,
838,oo0, yearly average. $15,758,771; 1851
to 1875, 25 yiars. $3,175,624,375- jeuriy
average $127,0i'4,975; 1876 to 1800, 15
years. ijOaOjUOiijiKia, yearly average,
if 108,731,273; 1801 to 1890, 90 years, i-5,-591,532,020,,
yearly average, $02,101,407.
Silver 181 1 to 1850, 50 years, $1,301,
295,500, yearly average, $27,225,010; 1851
to 1875, 25 years, $1,288,125,804, Yearly
average, $51,52-5,035; 1870 to 189U, 15
years, $1,640,421,304, yearly average,
109,934,352; 1801 to 1800, 90 years, $4,
300,525,785, yearly average, $48,883,019.
But in 1890 the world's products of
silver had increased to $109,000,000,
ugainst $85,000,000 in 1880, and the
yearly output of 1891, showed an in
crease over that of 1890, though it am
ounted to $123,000,000, and was just
about double the average for the past
ninety years, bears no comparison with
the increased product of silver, especi
ally during twenty-live years past.
This is sullicient explanation of the
inquiry wliy silver goes down. Not
withstanding the demonetization of
silver in this country in lo73, and the
noting of the German mints, as well
jis those of the Latin union, the pro
duction of silver throughout the world
bus increiised in a vastly more rapid
proportion than that ofgoldjand silver
id no exception to the rule that the
price of everything is determined chief
ly by the supply. Senator Sherman
tnerefore pertinently asks. "What can
prevent silver from going down?
Nothing. It is irrational to look for
anything else. Onyoniam.
The argument of the (tregonian U
logical, clear and convincing that the
editor for a moment forgot which side
ot the case he was on. Let us take his
own figures for a moment and see if
"the production of gold bears no com
parison with the increased product of
silver." From 1801 to 1850, 50 years,
the annual yield of gold was $15,758,774.
During the same period the annual out
put of silver was $27,525,910, or. almost
double that of its yellow brother. For
the next 25 years, the gold product
with the enormous yields of California
and Australia, averaged $127,024,075.
During the same period silver averaged
yearly $51,525'035. We have then for
the first fifty years of the century an
annual silver product of nearly double
the value of the gold yield; and for the
next twenty-five years, a gold yield two
and one-fourth times larger than the
silver yield, or a gain in the gold yield
as compared to that of silver, of about
4tol; and yet our gold-busf conteru.
porary says: "This disproportion has
been growing during four centuries."
For the past fifteen years the gold and
silver products of the world have been
practically equal, and the world's out
put of gold to-day, as compared with
that of the first fifty years of the cen
tury, shows that its relative value to
tlie silver output has doubled. Then
50 cents worth of gold was produced to
100 cents worth of silver, to-day the
yield is equal, and yet the Oregonian
insists that "the disproportion has been
growing during four centuries." It
makes its own figures, its own compar
isons, and then, denies their palpable
conclusions. That silver is depreciated
in value to-day can not be denied, but
the reason must be sought elsewhere,
than in the false cry of over product
Ion, and disproportion between the. two
metals. The proportion of gold to sil
ver is double to-day what It was a hdn
dred years ago, and disproportion is not,
can not be the cause. The true cause
lies in the desire of the gold bugs for a
speculative and fluctuating money; a
money for the broker and speculator
aud not for the people.' There is an
other self evident truth, and that is
that the natural increase of the world's
population, allowing for the gold and
silver used in the arts, will absorb all
the money metals without increasing
the present per capita circulation. The
abandonmens of silver as a meney
metal would reduce the circulating me
dium more than one half, and its place
must be filled with promises to pay, in
the shape of bank bills or government
notes. These in turn must (according
to the present Ideas) be based on gold,
and gold within the reach of the gov
ernment.' This gold docs nat exist, and
hence the abandoning of silver would
place the owners of gold in a position
to dilate its value, and place it above
its actual value just as they are to day
trying to place sliver below its actual
value. Silver is the people's money,
I m with it dIjH rn tli c-1
man has proved that gold is increasing
much more rapidly than silver; whv
then if the security of an article fixes
its value, should not silver if not jug
gled by money sharps enhance in
value? ' ' - ...
New Yoik City alone, last week re
ceived from Europe over 16,000 immi
grants. At that ra'e 800,000 foreigners
would be landed in that city alone in
1802. The total immigration should be
at this rate for the whole United States
something over a million. At the
proposition of one voter to each fi ve
persons, we have the total of 200,000
persons arriving each year, or an addit
ion of about 200,000 foreign votes annu
ally. It is safe to say that the number
added to our voting population, elimi
nating those who do not take out their
first papers is 150,000 annually, or more
than the entire vote of Oregon aftd
Washington combined.
Judge Taylor, who sentenced a man
to three years in the penitentiary for
stealing a salmon, aud another to one
year for murder, saw fit to sentence
Oscar Dunbar to a year in jail for libel.
There is no doubt but that - the-offense
was committed but a fine would have
been abundant punishment. Taylor
was let out by , the convention last
week and very properly so. He ought
