Judge H.H. Korthup of Portland
lias confuted to run as an independ
ent candidate for congress in the sec
.imd district, His platform is sound
money, protection o'f American indus
tries, restriction , of foreign immigra
tion, and (lie opening of the Columbia
river. Judge Nortlmp is an excellent
man in evejy way; and. would make a
congressman the state might well be
proud of, but hecartt be elected: His
candidacy will take many sound-money
'republican votes from Ellis, probably
enough' 1) elect.' Bennett or Quinn.
Hut fevv democrats outside of Portland
will votd for Northup. If the sound
inoijey republicans really 1 desire the
flec.i ion ' of a soUnd-money candidate
more than the defeat of Ellis(they
Khould have united on MiiKercher.
r-ound-inoney men froruall parties
could have united on him, knowing
that, his prohibition views would
amount to nothing in congress and
that his election would mean a victory
for sound jnonoyv' There1 are' how five
candidates for congress in the second
district two 'republicans, one sound
money, the other free silver; one l'ree
nil ver-proteetion-on-wool-democrat, oiie
populist and one prohibitionist. Pop
ulists ' and prohibitionists '. will vote
straight.' . With the other" parties it is
n "cut-throat" game, and the way
many of them will vote will be to cast
their ballots for the man they think has
the bust chance to win against theotie
they wish to see defeated. ...
The communication" by "Citisen" in
"last week's Cii,A(jiER, in regard to
-i'ouncilman Davidson's amendment to
.'ordinance- No. 7, and other matters
pertaining to the corporation, might be
considered 'uncalled for. The "article
was written by a friend and admirer of
Mr. J)uvidson,. and, we considered it
merely a good-natured criticism of. the
management ..of corporation-' affairs.
' TJie UicreuM lii , the license mentioned
will amount to $4 a year. The livery
business has iot been exceedingly prof
itable in Hood River so far. We have
not heard . of any great fortunes being
made. Since the consolidation of the
two livery; "stables. prices, for hauling
have' been very reasonable, and our
merchants and others have had their
hauling done cheaper than ever.. The
livery company has about great in
terests at stake as any business in town.
It pays for its protection by paying a
license, while our merchants are pro
leeted by.the license paid by the pcdler.
The letter of J. M. Hixson in Rural
'Northwest; which we" publish' in an
other column, is full of praise for Hood

' it is packed, by our fruit growers!" 'This

: Hood RivEr, Or.,' April 27, ; 1896.
Editor GxACiEr: In your issue of
April 24 ''Citizen" sets up a howl on
general principles,, and makes a special
target of us and our line of business. '
Now, so far as "Incorporation" is con
cerned we have nothing to say, aa we
knew the town was incorporated wheu
we came hereaiid wbeu wextmve any
kicking to do we will most certainly
do so according to fact's tustead of ac
cording to "our best information,''
which in the case cited is a specimen
of contracted1 presumptions, disgorged
and giving1 vent to an active mind
that is , badly dissatisfied because the
livery interests are o conducted as 'to
be harmonious instead of having a con
tinual war within itself, and both the
business and the public suffering as a
Now, Mr, Editor, we refrain from
elucidating "Citizen's'! article fully aud
will not continue''' this discussion
iuilber than this item, but we feel in
duty bound to make a statement. ,
From a couucilmau's'staudpoiut we
ae' in favor of this amendment, be
cause, as a business proposition, it will
necessarily bring a little more revenue
into the treasury; it is affording the
business a small protection and en
courage?) the keeping of a more com
plete Block in ibis line, which . wPl
draw people he.'e to speud their money
by oHe.'ing good accommodations; it
it lives principally from patronage" of
people who do not live here rand
spends (be earnings among the people
of the towa aud country generally.
..From a liveryman's standpoint we
are.like "Citizen" intimated, in favor of
this amendment, and among the
reasons are these; This "job , lot com
bination" has more of its owu money
invested in its business and property
than any other concern in town; is the
most complete in its line, aud is the
only one that voluntarily otters to pay
iu to the town treasury the protection
which-it asks; every- pedler,' or .person
who is not permanently located here;
undertaking to sell anything n ' town,
not his own manufacture, is taxed a
good stiff license (which gives protec-l
lion to Hie mercnants free aua no com
plaint eVen from -us.) and, contrary to
1'Citizen's". "best inforoiution," tbis
part of tire ordinance has been enforced.
' We would consider any person or
concern who would take out a license
'at $20 for the term of one year "as au
hoiiovfble- competitor,' and lie would
have our respect; but after we have
prepared ourselves for emergencies -by
keeping in readiness teams and Ve
il ices which are used only occasionally,
aud have someone, who lias very little
if anything invested here, come in and
take away this business free, works
against us, and, does the public ; and
town no good. '-.'
So far as the people here are con
cerned they have never had as good
nor as cheap service in our line as since
this ."job lot combination" .has been
formed, because by having practically
the entire business we can . afford to
work cheaper and cannot afford to
overcharge or mistreat anyone, as this
would justly encourage competition
against our interests. '' ! ;
In conclusion, we perhaps care less,
really about this ordinance, than our
argument would infer, but we present
it from the fact that we have not un
dertaken any "sinch back" game, but
have acted on a fairly substantial basis.
If the council ?es fit to pass- this
amendment, all right, and if they don't
we will certainly kick against a license
on our business alone for revenue, un
less every line is taxed proportionately
to the amfiunt of business done. Some
may not have realized the benefits from
incorporation which they expected, but
as we expected, nothing and have re
ceived 'nothing, neither have, "we been
greatly injured. . We' make, no argu
ment in its faver,K.H, F. Davidson; ;

. Hood River, Apples at Seattle. f
J. M. Hixson, .commission merchant
of Seattle, writes to the -Rural North
west as follows: ' .-''"' - ; ' '; ;'j 4
- I desire to correct a mistake that you
appear to have fallen into, in reference
to the apples from Hood River bringing
such good prices because they are want
ed for th. Alaska trade.; We wduld not
disparage' or underrate the importance
of the Alaska trade to this city. In 1
most, every line -the Alaska trade; is
large. ' Apples for the Alaska trade:slj
at from $1.25 to $1.60; '"i ' I ,'.
' We have handled ; HehryPriafee'a
and ,VV..,J. Baker's apples antkreceitfikt
the prices you iiaiiie SnitzehhurEs"$2
to $2.25 per iox and'Ye'llowewtownJ
pippins from $1.75 to $2.2a.'V'e.li've
sola a good many apples to go to Alas
ka, but we have not sold a box for that
trade at over $1.75, and the most, We
have sold have' ranged" from $1,525 to
$1.50. The apples that bring from $2
to $2.25 all go to, the local trade. This
is a good market for flrit-class fruit put
up in first-class style, and a poor mar
ket for goods packed in a slovenly
manner, although' the fruit may'.be
fairly good. . . , . - !-.
We have kept a man packing allthis
winter; and apples were dragging
at. $1.25 to $1.5t, when properly packed
would sell for from $1.0 to $1.75 and
sometimes $2. On one 'car of 700 bokes
of apples I am satisfied, we made the
party $1C0 by having '400 boxes (re
packed at a.costof $20. -We charge 6
cents a box where -we have to' have
them repacked. If .the. favtfiei'g would
take the pains they might'do that work
at home; they could save that money;
and it would he a 'great' in vor tons.
As a rule, the' best chance to "sell ls;
when the goods first come in, and if the
fruit presents an attractive appearancej
it attracts the best trade, who can .af
ford to pay good prices. .'. -'- - v
I must say for Mr. Henry Prige.
W.J.-Baker and some others at Hood
River that we have had no occasion ito
repack their fruit, and we could not
improve on their packing. In ovei30
years in this line of business in " San
Francisco, Kansas City ChiciigO. and
Seattle, I have never seen better frviit
and better handled than the most 'of
fruit ' shipped from Hood River.'5 1' I
have handled hundreds of 'thousands,
yH, millions of .boxes of fruit, arid
while there are scattered over Cali
fornia growers who raise good fruit aiid
put it up in good style, we have i&ver
nandled from any one, Jocalif y'where1 it
ht's been Inilversally as -good, aud well
hand led e from Hood Iver '".f.,,
' When I commenced business here,"1
five years r.go, three-fourths of the ap
ples comlcg to this market were in
rough boxes, many of t.hernmade, pf
shakes, slats and alP'kinds of riigh
lumber;' apples not packed, and every
time the- box was moved some of the
peeling-was rubbed off we have talked
and written on that subject, until now
one rarely sees a rough box, but they
have not learned to pack with as HViSoli
care generally as they should. ..... , i

Insight. My new plant Is also looking well,
the whole area of my berry patch, now
amounting to four acres. This is my first crop
here, and I am anxiously hoping that I may
be able to so manage the sales as to lift me
out of debt. Friday's St. Louis quotations are
higher than for the post month, as only "fair"
quality -ranged as high as Sli to 58 per 3&quart
crates ; "Texas berries, mainly soft, affected
by, rainy weather,. yet sold without difficulty
at from 42 to 3.o0 per 6-gallon case for the
poorest, to S45 for the best. Louisiana ber
ries sold at & per 2J-pint case for soft to 82.75

"supplies were away short of the require,
mente amid bright -mild weather quickening
the demand," makes, me think good prices
will range to parties who are able to scan the
fields of demand and supply, the same by
some rapid and systematic method. .
Berries from South Texas regions have, been
on it he markets for two months, and the pro
ducers are doubtless nearlng the close of.their
season. Along the line of the Texas Pacific,
which runs through the north part of this
county,and, clean through the state from Tex

climatic conditions as well as a wide range of

of good berries, at present writing,, will range
