If it is true, as reported, that Judge
'Dennett, in Ilia canvass for congress in
this district, will declare for a protect
ive tariff on wool, tije democratic party
will be left without a candidate. His
party is pledged to tariff reform, and
ntriff reform, according to the Wilson
t.ifi-PF kill Infill, sliict frcm vin . When
the Wilson bill was debated in congress
not one democratic member from the
wool-producing states was heard to
raise his voice in favor of protection on
wool, and not one voted for it. Dem
ocratic policy lavors a tarirr lor revenue
only. The. Wilson bill was a purely
revenue bill nd would have proved
sufficient it ti.o income tax feature had
not been declared unconstitutional.
Protectionists are very much out of
place in the" democratic party. If Judge
.Bennett could he elected and the re
publican majority should undertake to
enact1 a protective tariff law, which
they certainly will attempt, he would
be found voting with that party for
protection on wool, and it might be
that he would be ready by that time to
vote for a protective tariff bill throughout.-
To be consistent, if he wished to
favor his constituency besides the
sheepmen, he would vote for a tariff
on lumber and fruit and all other Ore
gon industries that might ask for pro
tection, r If a democrat can be induced
to think a tariff on wool is the proper
thing, it might not take much argu
ment to convince him that other "in
fant industries" need protection also.
If Judge Bennett has gotten off the
democratic piatrorm ana now stands
upon a platform of his own, or upon
the republican platform, his action ab
sol ves democrats, whether sou nd money
or free-silver democrats, from any obli
gation they might have considered
themselves under to , vote for him.
. Free-silver democrats are not protec
tionists, and however much they may
desire the triumph of free silver, they
are not ready to follow any one into the
protection' camp." The tariff question
still divides parties, If .it was not for
t he tariff question there would be no
free-silver republicans nor free-silver
democrats all could belong to one and
the same , party. Ve do not know
where Judge Bennett will find his sup
porters and get his votes, if he is in

1UVU1 Ul JJIUICUUUH VII W UUl,
crats of Eastern Oregon who favored a
tariff on wool have long since left the
democratic party and joined tbe repub
licans. If they are now free-silver re
publicans they will vote for Mr. Ellis;
if sound-money republicans they will
hardly vote for Judge Bennett. Sound
money and free-silver democrats agree
on democratic principles upon every
point ex'-ept the money question,' and
they will not vote for a protection-free-silver
candidate for congress The
populists have a 'candidate of their
own and will hardly ask, him to give
way to a candidate without a party.
The letter of Mr. H. D. Langille, in
this issue, in regard to the Cascade
forest reserve, is a strong argument
Against the reopening of the same by
the government. Mr. Langille is a
resident of Hood River, temporarily
stopping iu Portland, and, as everyone
here is aware of, knows what he is
talking about when he writes of sheep
nd tells how destructive they are to
date for congress in this district, is
stumping Eastern Oregon. He favors
protection to workingmen and govern
ment ownership of railroads.
Our Threatened Danger.
Portland, Or., April 18, 1896.
Editor tlT.AOiER: Havine1 notir-ed in
your last issue the copy of the remon
strance against tbe opening of the Cas
cade forest reserve and your 'earnest
ject, I desire to add an appeal to all
citizens who have the best interests of
v that section at heart to do all in their
power to defeat this measure. - . -'
The subject has been thoroughly re
' viewed aud there remains little new
argument to present, nor, I believe, is
more required to convince the disin
terested person that the throwing open
the sheepmen would cause iuestimable
and irreparable injury to the entire re
gion contiguous to the Cascade mount
ains or the streams finding source
among them. , : . .
The secretary of the interior and the
forestry department are thoroughly
acquainted with the facts of such cases
aud would be extremely loth to make
Any concessions, but great pressure is
' being brought to bear upon the depart
ment by the representatives of. the
sheepmen. Therefore we should, by
Unanimous Signing of this remon
strance, show that we are actively in
terested in the matter and that the ef
fort toward reopening the reserve i9
being -made only by those having pe
cuniary interests in the sheep business
and not bv tbe agricultural classes or
those representing the interests of the
greater uuiuiki ui jcuyie. .
The report of the secretary pf the in
terior on the" forms of California shows
u precedent which It would be well for
us to consider. Where once the forests
protected a rich undergrowth of grass
and shrubbery, there now remains ab
solutely no undergrowth, every vestige
of the same having been destroyed by
constant pasturing of sheep. Aside
from damage by lire to the heavy tim
ber,' how long, x would ask, before, the
same conditions would exist here, ulti
mately producing the same results as
the sheepmen claim will be brought
ntMHit by excluding the sheep that is,
tbe rai'gp would le destroyed by pas
turing, and this iu time Inst to them
anyway, while the great truit industry,
which is but in its infancy, would be
forever injured. Of the two industries,
which oilers the greater future possi
bilities? Upon twenty acivs of fruit
land, with abundant facilities for irri
gation, a man may comfortably support
a family, thus offering homes to many
in a small area, while a few sheepmen,
already having almost the entire "In
land Empire" for their pasture, now
send up a mighty wail because they
are not allowed to carry their work of
devastation juto the entire Cascade
The resident of Hood River valley
need not go far to prove every asser
tion made iu argument on this subject.
Year after year I have viewed this
work of destruction from the lofty
summits of the Cascades, and each en
suing year I see where the year pre
vious stood waving forests of noble rirs
and hemlock, now only the whitened
trunks remaining to tell the sud tale of
ruthless devastation. From the sum
mit of Mt. Hood, one day in lust July,
I counted twenty-two different forest
tires within a radius of comparatively
few miles on the eastern slope of the
range, and I have reason to believe
each and every one of these to have
been set by sheep herders, as none were
iu localities frequented by campers.
Some of these fires continued to bum
throughout almost the entire season,
covering miles of territory and destroy
ing that which can never be replaced.
In a short time the decaying trunks
will fall and the sheepmau's torch will
consume them. The undergrowth will
spring up, the sheep will destroy that,
and then what?
That every forest fire is started by
sheepmen, I would not for a moment
attempt to charge, but for the most
part they are responsible. Protection
against sheepmen, however, will also
protect against settlers, campers and
others who thus commit crimes against
the government and the people.
In the Oregoniau of the 17th inst.
appears a petition accompanied by a
list of signatures, including some of the
leading business bouses of Portland,
which every fruit grower should cut
out aud place in his scrap-book for fu
ture reference. This list contains
names which I believe never would
have appeared had the parties given
the subject due consideration . For tbe
most part they are those who have pe
cuniary interests among sheepmen, or
were actuated by personul motives.
An understanding of the fact that the
denudation of the Cascade mountains
will in time affect seriously and irre
parably the boasted port of Portland
would probably huve caused them to
hesitate before endorsing such a wrong
us this would prove.
. During the low water stage of the
Willamette last full it was stated i.i a
daily paper that the ocean steamers
were experiencing some difficulty in
docking at this place. If such a con
dition can occur ut this time what will
be the result when the snow and rain
fall in tbe mountains are natually les
sened and the protection, now afforded
the snow by the forests, is destroyed,
thus causing it to melt more rapidly in
the early season of the year, resulting
in extreme freshets followed by such
a stage of low water as will make navi
gation of the lower river an impossi
bility for deepsea vessels and the upper
portion- utmovigable for qny but the
lightest craft. ':. . ..
Thus It is that the perpetuation ' of
the Cascade forest reserve is absolutely
essential to almost the entire state.
Any effort to the contrary is antago
nistic to the best interests of the major
ity of the people, while benefiting but
few and this lor only a comparatively
short time, for even the "unlimited re
serve" could not long withstand the
annual pasturage of the hundreds of
thousands of sheep which would flock
to it. '
In conclusion, I will call attention
to the-closing lines of the petition, a
more outrageous injustice than which
could not lie proposed to thrust upon
the people of Hood river valley and
neighboring sections.-- The petitioners
pray that the rules be so modified as to
allow tbe pasturing on. the entire re
serve "except the Bull Ruii and Mount
Hood reserves, or all that portion lying
north of the Barlow road, west of the
summit of the Cascade mountain
range." What does that mean to
Portland sought far among the green
timber-clad hills for a pure water sup
ply and rightly hastened to protect it
from diminution and pollution by se
curing tbe reservation of the Bull Run
reserve. This gained these worthy pe
titioners seem to have lost sight of the
fact that, outside the city of Portland
there may be at least a few people who
desire a supply of water unpolluted, by
protection of the streams upou which
they depend. This protection assured,
then, unlike the sheep ridden sections,
the valley shall blossom as one vast
orchard and happy, prosperous homes
shall dot the landscape at intervals of
less than twenty miles.
The reopening of the reserve was
adopted as a plauk in the republican
platform at the late convention, but no
candidate should receive the endorse
ment of the farmers and fruit growers
of this district who is thus pledged
against the welfare of those he iselected
to represent. H. D. Langille.
Flume Culverts. .
Hood River, April 22, 1896 Editor
Glacier: ' , The matter of fluming
across the roads, which was spoken of
last week by Mr. Parker, is of great
importance. In some places this mat
ter is left in the hands of the road su
pervisor, and any one desiring to tres
pass thus upon the highways must
make application to him, giving speci
fications, grade, etc., and if satisfac
lory, the supervisor may grant tbe
privilege. , But this business of every
man putting one in to suit his own
fancy or convenience at any desired
bight or unevenness, and in most cases
very poor workmanship, is a nuisance
that should be abated. .Nine-tenths of
these grade crossings flood the road as
soon as any obstruction gets into the
flume. H. C. B. j

Has Enough of Incorporation.
Hood River, .April 22. Editor
Glacier: In last week's Glacier, in
the council proceedings,' I read: "Coun
cilman Davidson introduced an ordi-
! nance amending ordinance No. 7, rais
ing license on dray and livery teams
from $5 to $20." W hen it is understood
that Councilman Davidson is one of
the principal men of a job lot combi
nation of livery stables, the object of
the raise in license is obvious, it the
deal is a square one, why is not the tax
raised proportionately on the addi
tional teams instead of keeping it the
same as before. The idea ot the origi
nators of the incorporation of the town
was for the benefit of those residing
within the limits of the incorporation,
such as a better water system, an eiii
cient fire service, a sewage system, as a
protection against the ravages of filth
and disease. Now, after 18 months of
incorporation we sum up the results as
follows: Ordinances have been passed
against every crime known on the stat
ute books of Oregon except murder in
its various degrees, including man
slaughter; a license against dogs, livery
stables, ten-cent shows and pedlers.and
to the best of my information, none
enforced, except those that interfere
with the livery stable interests. "How
are the mighty fallen!" All of our
glowing anticipations of fire hydrants
at street corners, book aud ladder and
hose companies, reductions in insur
ance rates, and sewer systems all frit-,
tered and simmered down ' into - a
"sinch-back ordinance " Incorpora
tion has been a Contemptible failure;
nothing has been done but spend
money excepting the consolidation of
the livery stable interests, l he present
council has pledged themselves to do
nothing during their term of office, so
that now I am ready to quit and re
turn to our original state ot unincorpo
rated blessedness. ; Citizen.
Stand by Our Local Union.
Hood River, April 20, 1896. Editor
Glacier: I hand you a circular letter
of the J. F. Kelly Co. of Butte, Mon
tana, which I think will explain itself,
as our experience with that firm last
year is still fresh in the memory of our
berry growers. Mr. Kelly's gall is of a
pronounced order aud surpasses any
thing of the kind that I ever knew of.
After his ruction with Mr. Davidson,
last year, Mr. Kelly was going to boy
cott our berries and thus to leurn us
"where we were at:" but Mr. K.'s
heart has softened ana he proposes to
let us live awhile longer. All I wish
to say is tand 1 was one of the largest
shippers last year) that Mr. Davidson's
management of the union was perfectly
satisfactory to me, nor have I heard of
any complaint. Will say further that
my berries shipped, to Mr. Kelly (be
fore Mr. Davidson caught on) brought
from 75 cents to $1 per crate less than
berries shipped to other parties in Butte
on same d.ae.
If our berry growers know when they
are well oft", they will stand by our lo
cal union and keep the commission
and wages in the valley,

Return of the Prospectors.
The Mountaineer of Monday gives
the following account of the trip to the
mountains by parties from Hood River
anrt White Salmon;. .i .
Tiie prospecting party consisting Wj
li. Liaduhotl, .1. -McCoy, Wesley and
J. Locke, James Langille, John Darke
and J. II. Cradlebaugh, that left White
Salmon seven weeks ago today, ar
rived home Saturday night. The per
sons named had located claims on Mc
Coy creek, a branch of the Cifpus river,
about the north line of Skamania
county, last -, fall and desired to test
their ground in order that if good they
could make arrangemeuts for going
actively and systematically at work to
open their claims as soon us the season
They left White Salmon Tuesday
morning, going as far as Trout lake iu
wagons. Thursday morning, with
their plunder loaded on three sleds,
they began what proved to be a re
markably hard trip that lusted 23 days.
The old snow for forty miles of the
road was from 15 to 20 feet deep, and
the first two days out nearly two feet
of new snow fell. The party arrived
at its destination March 27th, and were,
on the creek 17 days. There was about
six feet of snow on the bars when they.
arrived and about four feet when theyi
left. In consequence of this, prospect
ing was' a difficult-undertaking. Mr.
Cradlebaugh is satisfied the ground
will pay, but how rich it is. is an un
known matter.: The creek is quite
large, and the bars not very numerous,
the hillsides being very steep and the
canyon consequently of the "box" or
der. The area of lay ground is small
and is all located, there being but about
a mile and a quarter of the creek that
will pay, unless the creek below the
box canyon; a distance of seven miles,
should develop pay dirt. The party
will not go out again before July 1st,
as it will be impossible to get in with
horses before that time. The distance
from Trout lake to the mines is about
65 miles. -.''

Care of an Orchard.
I find there Is a very generally prevailing
opinion that any one can be a fruit grower,
that all that Is required Is to plant a few trees
and in a few years harvest a crop of prize
iruit. A man may learn a trade so that he
understands it thoroughly and can manage
any branch of it, but this is not the case In
fruit growing. When a man commences to
grow fruit he commences at the same time to
grow a good crop of diversified knowledge, for
something he had not thought of will come
np every day or two to confront and resist
him. . Most of the fruit pests are, if not of
modern origin, at least universal within the
last few years. Most of the old settlers will
remember what fine apples we had in the
Willamette valley 25 or 30 years ago, but they
are there no longer. The "Oregon red apple,"
famous then all over the coast, comes no
longer from the valley. Neglect has furnished
the golden opportunity for the pests, and I
am sorry to say that these pests have not neg
lected it. There are a few isolated localities
In the valley where good fruit is still grown,
'but they are the exceptions that prove the op
When I first became a member of this board,
three years ago, apple scab was unknown in
my district; but, in spite of the watchfulness
of the growers, it has made its appearance In
a few orchards within the last year. I find
the most common and most grlevou3 mis
take made by those who begin fruit growing
is the lack of care In selecting the location for
their orchards. My advice would be to select
your intended orchard ground in the month
of February. If you find then the soil Is too
wet or miry, leave it for some other crop and
do not plant trees In it. It is also a good plan
to dig holes In the land two or three feet deep.
If the water stands in these do not put out
trees, Unless some provision Is made for thor
ough drainage. If these boles are sunk to a
depth of four or five feet, it will also demon
strate whether or not the hardpan is a source
of danger. I have been asked at different
times by orchardists, "What Is the matter
with my orchard? It don't do well." My
answer Is, "Dig a hole and you Will find hard
pan too near the surface," and this proves to
be the case In almost every instance.
., Another mistake is in selecting the trees.for
it is seldom, indeed, that the varieties for
commercial value, at least, are not too many.
A fruit looks nice, or the name sounds nice,
hod a few of t his, that and the other kinds are
selected, resulting in a mixture of good, bad
and indifferent fruit, the bad and Indifferent
prevailing, and the owner is often Ignorant of
the names of his assorted fruits.
Another and a serious mistake is made In
crowding the trees, and this applies to all
kinds of fruit trees. Downing recommends
from thirty to forty feet os the distance at
which apple treesshould be planted from each
other, but many who know better than he in
sist on crowding them to 'twenty-five or even
twenty feet. The result is that when the trees
get ten years old the limbs will touch, mak
ing it difficult to take care of them, and then
they soon begin to show signs of decay. At
the same1 time, the fruit not getting enough
sun, deteriorates in quality. Good fruit must
have the sun. You may quote Downing, and
you may advise the orchard planter against
crowdin?, and he will admit you are correct,
but when you visit him in another year you
will find the advice unheeded and the trees
crowded. Most orchards are trimmed too
much. After the trees get three or four years
old they should be left alone; the only thing
required is to see that the limbs do not cross
one another and that plenty of sunshine gets
Into the trees. Every fruit grower should
have one or more horticultural papers; they
are cheap, and every number will add to
- It is needless, perhaps, to say that every or
chardist should have a good spray pump. It
Is good policy to buy the best and to avoid
those with leather valves or packing, as they
are almost certain to give a good deal of
trouble. Whatever pump is selected, how
ever, should be taken care of and cleaned and
oiled when you are through using it.
It is the opinion of some that spraying does
no good. The reason of this opinion is that
they Judge by work improperly done. There
is not more than one out of five who does the
work properly, and the neglect often begins
in not having the wash properly mixed.
Spraying, when improperly done, Is a waste
of time and money. I find that some of the
fruit growers spray when tbe wind is blowing,
then they invariably spray the trees on one
side. They are afraid the spray will get on
their clothes. When you spray for San Jose
scale you want to be sure and cover every
part of the tree. If you leave only a small
place two or three inches on a limb, you will
have enough scale left to stock the whole tree.
Any one who has a good deal of spraying to
do, I would advise having a pair of joggles
and something to protect their face, also their
hands. I have had a great deal of ex
perience in my district with the Ban Jose
scale. A great many of our fruit growers don't
seem to mind it, as they spray every winter
with the lime, sulphur and salt; this gives the
tree a good, healthy appearance. You will
have to use a good deal of Judgment when
spraying, and. when you find that it looks
like it was about ready to rain, you want to
use the spray a little stronger than usual, and
also more salt, as it will not so easily wash off.
You will see by my report in regard to the
experience I have had in l iiing the lime, sul
phur and salt, that the only thing that gives
the wash any strength Is the sulphur. The
lime helps the sulphur to dissolve; the salt is
to make it stick on tbe tree. I have experi
mented about ten different ways in boiling
this solution of lime, sulphur and salt, and
they all amount to'Ttbout one and the same.
This is the result of one of them: Ten pounds
of sulphur, ten pounds of lime and twenty
gallons of water. Boiling fifteen minutes it
shows 7- degrees; thirty minutes, 9 degrees;
forty-five minutes, 10 degrees; one hour, 12
degrees; then I add the salt, ten pounds, and
let It boil for half an hour longer. You will
see that by adding ten gallons of water you
will have thirty gallons of wash. Never add
too much cold water while boiling. -,
- A long and careful examination into the
question of varieties most valuable commer
cially for Eastern Oregon convinces me that
the Red Astrachan and Early Harvest are the
best summer apple, the Gravenstein and
King of Tompkins County the best fall, and
the Yellow Newtown Pippin, Spitzenburg,
.Baldwin and Wlnesap the best winter. There
are, of course, many other valuable varieties,
such as the Rome Beauty, Jonathan, Louvre
and others, but the varieties named, all things
considered, outrank all the others. On my
last visit to Portland I made inquiry of the
fruit dealers as to the best selling apples, and
tbe answer was, Invariably, "Spitzenburgs
and Baldwins." One dealer told me he had
received a few days before thirty boxes of
Hood River apples, among them ten boxes of
Spitzenburgs, ten ot Baldwins and ten of
Rhode Island Greenings. The Baldwins and
Spitzenburgs went at once, the others he had
still on hand.
Fruit growing has attained to the dignity of
a profession, and it Is a pleasant, healthful
and profitable' occupation for those who en
gage in it Intelligently. Both Dunn and
Bradstreet report that there is a much smaller
percentage of failures among i'rult growers
than among farmers; or in mercantile pur
suits. As a general rule, orchardists are well
to do, and the small fruit grower can always
rely on sufficient lucome to pay his way as he
