The Valley Improvement Company.
. The Valley Improvement company
was organized under the present arti
cles of incorporation on Nov7 15, 1895,
l.y O. A. Bell, L. E. Morse, J. E. Han
na, C. M. Wolfard, J, H.Ferguson, P. A.
'Snyder, F. Davenport and H. F.
Davidson, by. whom a majority of the
capital stock, $20,000,, was subscribed.
The matters of securing the right of
way and other rights and privileges
were pushed ahead ar, fust as was prac
ticable, until tnerigntor way was se
cured all nlong the river bluff out as
far as to (he land owned by M. P.
Isenberj:, near where Mr. S.W. Arnold
now reside, mid nil parties holding
land below tliia place are very willing
to give the right of way as soon as the
route is definitely located.
The survey has been made and stakes
lire set on the line of the proposed ditch
as far as it is necessary to have any sur
'.;' veying done, and all la in readiness to
cro to work. -

surveying are all paid, so at the present

The demand for water is an impera

prospect for a full supply another sea

. and how and when can we get It?"
As a business proposition, this enter
prise is certainly desirable, especially to
those who have real estate or business
, interests in the valley. . ."'..'
The Water Supply Co. have paid
over $8,000 for their ditch system and
have for sale 250 miner's Inches of

per inch, and the stock in the company
has never sold below par. By the new
ditch 3000 miuer's inches will be
brought into the valley at a maximum
cost of $25,000, making the property
worth, on the basis of the present water

that the demand for water for the year
after the completion of the ditch would
not exceed 1,000: inches, the property
. would then be worth $32,000,., or about
$7,000 more thin actual cost, and will
pay a good income on the iuvestmeut
with a certainty of a gradual increasing
demand until the entire supply will be
used. When we say there is a de
mand next year for 1,000 inches of
. water we mean at the rate of $5. per
inch, which is the price now realized,
una at a reuuceu rate mucu more would
be asked for for irrigating meadows,

fruits and vegetables.
l tie stocit doors are open now; anct
jn the hands of the postmaster, L. E.
Morse, for the purpose of receiving sub
scriptions to the capital stock by those
who feel able and willing to help push
this matter forward. :'
The kIzh of th nnrlpi-f-nkina' u-tll nf
course necessitate the very strongest
' effort on the part of every individual
in tne valley or interested in the pro
gress of the valley, in the line of giving
Huusiaiiuat aiu. x ue more general tne
stock is taken up the faster the work
will be put forward. It is reasonably
certain that the ditch will be built, and
the time it will take depend) upon the
. liberality of support. ,.
There will be a meeting of the sub'
ecribers to tbe capital stock in Hood
River, on Saturday, March 14th, at 2
p. m., for the purpose of giving thesub
ecribers at that time an opportunity to
choose a board of directors and make
such recommendations as they wish
carried out. , Let every person make
himself a committee of one to see to it
mat no person wno is aoie to give this
, proposition help fails to do so and en-
f Hble himself to take part in the election
of officers; and help Id making the Im

, Both houses of congress have passed
resolutions, by nearly unanimous vote,
recognizing the belligerent rights of the
Cubans. This action may cause .war
between the United States and Spain.
Congress jseenis disposed to get us into
' a war with some foreign power before
they get through, and, strange to say,
its action is backed . by the great ma
jority of the people of all parties.
Kcarly everybody seems to be "in favor
of the next war." Our statesmen could
better subserve the interests of the
country by making provision for coast
defenses and improving our navy be
fore passing resolutions that may: re
sult in war with even as weak a nation
as .Spain. : ,

McKiuley seems to be the f.ivorite
presidential candidate with the repub
licans of Oregon, as he is with the re-.
jiublicans of most of tlje Western States
without a favorite son of their own.
Morrison seems to lead with the dem
ocrats of the West. ,The avowed can
didates of the republicans are making a
hard fight for the nomination, as if
it was worth fighting for. With the
democrats and populists the office is
seeking the man, and It may not find
him in these parties in 1890.
It is a wonder some enterprising free
silver statesman didn't move that a
free-silver amendment be tacked onto
the Cuban resolutions.' "'"' '

..' Dear Bro. B. Iwailt Ko address you
that way just for short, as your kite

much precious -space in-the U-LAtliEB.
I call you "brother," because1- we' were"
taught in Sunday school that the
Ashantee nigger and the king of Da

the bones of a dead nigger's leg, remind
you of the pictures . of Adam and Eve

you have noticed, yourself, a striking
family resemblance when comparing
the pictures of those people with, your
photo and mine, embellishing he, cen-.

that we all sprung from Adamiiiia are
all near of kin all brothers. ! There
might be this difference . between us:

indulged in such expressions as: "Such

"in one breath they "rave, fat .their,

"if their progeny end on the gallows,"
etc; "a lotof parasites like by W.L.A.'!
."roar of intolerance, rage and ridicule;"
"fire away, old man, for thy days are
numbered;" "venomous reptile;" 'ex-

Bro. B., such ebullitions of wrath,'
while not affecting me; injure you rself
with all decent men In your-own
church; and such m.embers'as yo'u:.will
deter people of refinenieuttfrom endur
ing your smell, and the. poor' Janitor
will be called on;' by a unanimous -vote
to leave the windows "upon both sides
of the house" and a door open at each
end. Then, Bro. B., why cannot you
write without lying about your betters?.
If all liars shall have their part in a
lake of fire and brimstone, you ought
to tremble .when you read the follow-'
ing choice statements in-your 'letter:
"1 have met such persons (as W.L.A.)
in many places. In .one breath they
rave at; their maker and revile all the
efforts which their fellow men make to
restrain evil and lift the fallen;" "he
refers unfeelingly to "the death of New

Eastern papers." If it.were rep'rinted.

But, Bro B.; I see'jiu aj;e a praying
man "We . havercason to thank God
that such case-hardened: specimens as
W. L. A. do not predominate." I once
read of one of your sanctimonious an
cestors who ''went Jiito .the"temple to
bray "1 thank God J am -not as other
men." xiie poor publican-: made a.
short prayer, which reached the palace
royal of the universe "God be merciful
to me a sinuer." . We meekly "suggest
to you, Bro. B.,Tas neitlier you nor any
of your kind have ever had a petition
answered yet you should,; leave off
braying like a Pharisee and go to brav
ing the prayer of . the publican.' ,
Again, "mere, ,.m en inext time

to cause a running sore in every com

always endeavored to get a. running

keep it running; your health depends
"If their progeny (such as W. J Ji.
end on the gallows, who will be to

but for yourself and your own children".
My "progeny"' are taught that every
crime carries a sure punishment. They
are taught that the Wretch who goes to:
