Tuesday, the president sent his mes
sage to congress transmitting the cor
respondence between Secretary Olney
und Lord Salisbury on the, Venezuelan
question. As has been known for
Borne time, the British premier holds
that England has nothing to arbitrate
in the matter. The president vigor
ously upholds the Monroe doctrine
and recommends that a. commission be
authorized by congress to proceed at
once to Venezuela and investigate the
boundary dispute. There is no doubt
about congress upholding the president
in his defense of the Monroe doctrine,
and if the commission finds in favor of
Venezuela, war between the United
States aud England will be the result,
unless the latter backs down and
agrees to arbitrate. It will be a great
pity if the two great English speaking
peoples of the world must go to war
South America claimed by a couple of
million half-civilized half-breeds, but,
in the patriotic language of Grover
Cleveland, "there is no calamity which
a great nation can invite which equals
that which follows supine submission
to wrong and injustice and the conse
quent loss of national self-respect and
honor, beneath which is shielded and
defended the people's safety and great
ness." ',
In the event of war with England,

- sea coast cities, but in the end, if the
war had to continue for ten years, he
would win. The seaport cities might
fall a prey to the British warships and
, be made to pay heavy tribute, but in
th meantime our armies would march
into and take possession , of Canada
from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and

The Monroe Doctaine.
The Monroe doctrine grew out of the
successful revolt of Mexico and others
of the Spanish American Republics of
Central and South America against the
sovereignty ot spam, une govern
ments instituted by the people of those
countries after their independence had
been recognized were necessarily weak
und in constant danger of resubjuga
tion. The holy alliance of Europe, em
bracing all the powers which had com
bined against and overthrown Napo
leon Bonaparte, seriously contem-,
plated . extending its operations to the
New World and re-establishing, by
force of arms, European control of the
country. This design was largely in
Mpired by the house of Braganza, reign
ing in ''Portugal and over that great
section of South America then aild now
known as Brazil. The Braganzas
feared the influence of republicanism
surrounding them on the western con
tinent, and the holy alliance feared the
growth everywhere of that republican -lulu
which if, had been at so much cost.
of blood, and treasure to suppress in
' France. " .
In this emergency the Monroe doc
trine was declared. , It was evidently
intended to be as much an assertion of
our own interest as of the interest of
any other people. The monarchial
governments of Europe were advised
that any effort to "extend their system
to any portion of this hemisphere"
would be regarded as ."dangerous to
our peace and safety" and, being so,
would provoke our resistance. It was
certainly understood, by the men re
sponsible for this declaration, that in
the face of it no government would at
tempt encroachments upon any Amer
ican power without first clouding the
question by every means familiar to
trained diplomacy. Arbitration must
have been contemplated by them as a
necessary means of settling many
vexed questions, but it is impossible to
believe that they contemplated the
possibility of European arbitration of
any such questions. It was the logic
of their position that in all such cases,
involving, as they declared, the right
and interest of the United States, this
country must be the final arbiter, and
not any one or more of the European
governments banded together for pur
poses of mutual conquest and dominion.
This conclusion is unavoidable when
their attitude is considered in the light
of their specific declarations and of the
conditions of international comity then
existing. As final arbiter of all ques
tions arising under construction of the
limitations they had declared, the
United States would be in position to
maintain their own security and that
of the weaker republics, without war.

The Fruit Convention at Walla TVnlla.
From .the Klickitat Agriculturist's
report of the meeting we make the fol
lowing extracts: -
C. A. Tonneson of Tacoma addressed
the meeting, who said: "To be a suc
cessful fruit grower, spraying and other
means of preventing the attack of fruit
pests must be employed from the stage
of first planting the tree. More than
this, the work must begin in the nur
sery, vvitn tue great possibilities De-
fore the fruit growers of the Pacific
northwest, we cannot be too particular
about guarding against the introduc
tion of infected plants, trees, fruit or
any material in connection therewith
from outside sections. When first
planting the orchard we are slow to
realize and thoroughly understand
that in this mild climate of even tem
perature, which is so favorable, for fruit
culture, insects and fungus diseases
may cause serious losses unless pre
ventive measures are constantly being
used to keep them in check, for condi
tions specially favorable for fruit are
also favorable for insect life.. The work
of combating fruit pests should be done
intelligently. . It is not necessary that
fruit growers should learn the scientific
names of the insect species, but certain
general classifications should be under
stood in order to determine their feed
ing habits, so that the proper remedies
may be applied."
Prof. Balmer of the Pullman agri
cultural college talked on the "Success
ful Methods of Propagating and Plant
ing Fruit Trfees." He held that bud
ding, was preferable to grafting, and
that grafting to a piece was better than
grafting the. whole root. He stated
that the grafting of one variety of any
species of fruit upon another would not
result in the fruit on the grafted limb
haviusr more than one flavor. One
delegate contended that he had known
one apple to have as many as three
flavors. This delegate thought that
the pollen from a Spitzenberg apple
tree, for instance, would impregnate a
Yellow Newtown Pippin with its own
peculiar flavor, and that the result
might be two flavors in one apple. The
speaker did not think this view was
established by good authority, but that
it was still an open question.
The Art of Pruning.
' The art of pruning fruit trees in Cal
ifornia, as practiced by many of the
best orchardists, may be1 described as
follows: After planting one-year-old
trees from bud or graft, they cut them
back to within 18 to 24 inches of the
ground. The young tree is allowed to
make all the growth possible the first
season; next, all shoots that have made
a growth of over a foot are cut back to
a foot or thereabouts. The next sum
mer the growth is again forced, cutting
back the shoots the following spring
from one-half to two-thirds, leaving
the upper shoots the longest and cut
ting back the side shoots and lower
ones more, thus beginning to shape the
head of the tree i n the form of a goblet
The third, fourth and fifth winters the
pruning and shaping are on the same
general plan, except that at and after
the third pruningaportion of the twigs
on the outside of the head of the tree
(in cases where two or more shoots
have started from the end of a shoot
where cut the year before) should be
cut smoothly out. - And then the
proper pruning remains about the same
during the life of the orchard. . And,
as Downing says and proves, the or
chard may be kept , in perfect health,
vigor and fruitfulness for an indeflte
period of time by pruning back from
above downwards. ;
Beginners should not only study the
systems of pruning given by Downing,
Wickson and others, but should care
fully study the practices of the most
successful fruit growers in the neigh
borhood. No cast-Iron rule can be
given, for much depends upon local
conditions which are so exceedingly
varied that successful practice in one
place may not serve in another com

County Institute Postponed.
Hood River, Dec. 15, 1895. Editor
Glacier: Our county institute, notice
of which was kindly given in your last
week's issue, must necessarily be in
definitely postponed. The state asso
ciation has been changed to fall on the
same date. I suppose no one is to
blame, but in justice to myself I would
like to make the following statement:
' When planning for the time of our
meeting, I bad no thought that a state
association would be held this winter,
as one had been held last July, and it
has been customary to hold but one
each year. To make sure, however, 1
wrote the state superintendent, who in
reply, Nov. 30th, gave me the first
news of the state meeting, fixing the
date Dec. 26th, 27th and 28th, a week
before ours. It was, however, an un
fortunate date, as one can see, and was
changed to Jan. 1st, 2d and 3d, the
same time ours was to be held. It is,
of course, unwise to attempt to hold
both at the same time, and moreover,
President Campbell is compelled to at
tend the state meeting.

water the fire was put out. The fire
caught from a stove pipe projecting
through the roof, the top of which-had
blown off during the night. Friday
morning a blaze was discovered on Tom
Wickens' house, but Mr. Wickens and
Mr. Campbell happened to be near by
and put it out. It also caught from a

Testimonial to Mrs. Heald.
Hood Rivek, Or., Dec. 10, 1895.
Mrs. C. P. Heald: Your determination
to remove to an Eastern state has re
cently been announced. You have,
during your several years' residence in
Hood River, both created and catered
to the musical life of the place. Many
have received direct benefits in the
way of instruction, and all have been
inspired by your efforts. .
As a token of appreciation of your
charming accomplishments and cheer
fully given services, your many friends
wish to lender you a testimonial con
cert. If this meets with your approval,
please indicate to us the time that
would best suit you, together with any
other suggestion that may occur to you:

East Hood River Items.
, The show business was all the go on
the East Side a couple of weeks ago.
The show, a magic lantern exhibition
of the poorest quality, was free. But
the poor suffering and tired lookers-on
were kindly asked, after part of the
show had been given, with a promise
of much more to follow, to vote for the
ugliest man and the most popular lady
in the house at 5 and 10 cents a vote.
It is needless to add that suckers are
too scarce in Hood River for a concern
of this stripe to succeed.
The Columbian Educational club is
holding regular meetings now, and a
most Interesting time is reported. The
old time debating society, when prop
erly managed, is a great help to those
taking part. The Pine Grove people
have found the secret to good order by
allowing none but members to attend
these meetings.
It looks a little suspicious to see so
many of our young bachelors either
building or repairing. Among them
we might mention Henry, Fred and
John. "A hint to the wise is suffi
cient." Boys, get your tin cans ready.
There was a small runaway at Hans

. Christmas Greeting.
It Is the Joyous Christmas time,
When all our thoughts ring out a chime
Of sweetest melody;
When weary cries of pain and woe, .
Like frightened birds at fall of snow
Hush their sad threnody.
When toil and fret and tire of mind ' '
Give place, dear niends, to things more kind,
To pilgrims on Life's road.
When low ambitions, reaching higher,
To deeds of Christmas love aspire,
And drop care's heavy load.
( For as a little child, new born,
Love comes to each on Christmas morn
And wakens Memory!
Who from her precious boarded store.
Brings back our childhood joys once more "
To feast with Keverie.
And He, who came this day to save
His wayward children from the grave ,
Of human selfishness,
. Sends forth his angels, shod with peace.
That every good thing may Increase
Towards Heavenly happiness!
