FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1S97.
Official reports from Germany to the
state department in Washington show
au enormous increase in the receipts of
American apples during the year 1896.
German agricultural papers assert that
the Importa reacheda total of 0OOO,OOO
centners, or fully twenty times ns much
us for any previous season. It is said
the German growers-are- tilarniied-rt-this
.showing, and especially at the
keeDinir dualities of the American ap
ples, which are much better than those
grown in Gerinany. The great objec
tion found, to Eastern; apples shipped
to this couHt last fall- was that they
were not good keepers. '
- A sensational newspaper of New
York made I lie discovery that a num
ber of women passengers oh a boat be
tween Cuba and Florida were searched
by Spanish officers and tubmitted to
gross Indignities. An investigation of
the matter proves that, instead of a
boat load of Cuban women being
searched by rude men, one woman
only was examined, and she by a per
son of her own sex.

Injury to Fruit Trees. : '
Sonic of the apple orchards of Hood
River seeoi to have been considerably
injured by the freezing weather in
November lost, but we do not believe
the damage is great as has been re
ported during the past week. The
Yellow Newtown and Spitzenberg
apple trees seem to be the most affected.
The following' from the report of Dr
Cardwell, late president. of the State
Board of Horticulture, will be of interest:-
I ii February, 1853, as happens occa
sionally in these latter days after the
warm winter rains, and occasional sun
shine, tile rise of sap swelled the fruit
buds and started our trees into growth,
the weutber turned cold enough to
freeze the sap and stop - circulation.
This lasted teverel days;' the warm
ufierni.ou sun. was too sudden a
change of temperature; some young
nets died, and many were sun-scalled
on t bo southwest side. The bark was
entirely, loosened and burst open iu
others; trees thus affected all died.
The white sap wood (cambium) in all
young trees turned a light brown.
Nearly all started to grow in tbespring,
a tew of these died during the season
of what we now call sour sap. Apples
snowed wnat we now call dead spot,
and stoue fruit gummed, particularly
cherries. This was precisely what we
now call gummosis. The remedy then
tor this was to split the bark and give
free vent to the exuding cum. and in
bad cases to cut back the tops one half
or more; most trees tuus treated en
tirely recovered from dead spot and
gummosis, and made vigorous and
healthy growth. We had no green or
woolly aphis then.' Often in olden
times we said our trees took cold and
in the following growing season exuded
gum, ana occasionally we lost cherry
trees, the Royal Anne being most
affected. Those not dying the first
year, however, entirely recovered
under treatment. In -the- winter of
1K79 and '80, after a warm season, the
tnermometer fell below zero, with re
sults just, mentioned, all over the
vulley. In myown young orchard,
near Portland, more than half the trees
were sun-sralled, some burst open and
the sap wood iu all turned dark: only
5 per cen t were lost and today the m-
ruaincter bear no signs of the damage,
and have made vigorous and healthy
Letter from Grand Forks, B. C.
Grand Fobks, B. C, Feb. 17, 1897.
Editor Glacier: Will you give me
t-pace in your paper to answer a few of
the many inquiries about this wonder
ful mining country, and save me the
trouble of writing a descriptive letter
to each inquirer? To start with, from
the Columbia river west to the Oka
nogan country, a distance of over 100
miles, is what is known as the Kettle
River country. This district covers an
area of about 800 miles square and is
known as the' Yale mining division.
All records and legal transactions are
kept at Midway, where the govern
ment has an office . Tnelnderl In thin
area are three districts, known as Ket
tle River, Boundary Creek and the
North Fork. I shall speak only of the
mines on. the North Fork, as they are
the only ones I have had time to look
up in the short time I have been here.
Grand Forksi, B. C, is located at the
forks of the Kettle river, in a beautiful
little valley, and so situated that no
railroad can be built to these rich mines
without passing through it. Property
is very cheap yet in the town. There
is probably 8,000 claims staked off
within five miles of this point. Maiiy
of them are being worked this winter.
When spring comes there will be a
rush for new claims, besides the work
on old ones staked last season. On the
North Fork elainis are staked . out
wherever y u go. About ten miles;
from Grand Forks, wbich is the only
place accessible to it, is the famous
Volcanic; aim, Seattle, Pathfinder,
Volcaulc, R. Bill, Minnie, French and
Hardv Mountain mines. There is
probably hundreds of otkere which are
equally as rich, which I have not time
to mention. There is probably 300
mines iu this district that are consid
ered paying mines. Of all these, the
Volcanic and Seattle are probably the
largest. The Volcanic is really a
mountain of ore; the vein can be seen
itt the surface . for 3,000 feet, 1,200 feet
wide. Looking from the opposite side
of the river, ibis great body of, ore can
be seen at a distance of eight miles,and
as one man said, it looks like a large
red blanket spread out on the moun
tain side. It Is considered low grade,
though it grows richer as they go
down. It is stocked for $20,000,000,
and is considered by mining men to be
fhe largest body of ore ever discovered.
With railroads, which will be built the
coming summer, large smelters will be
built, and a rush for this country will
come. Several mines have already
been sold, others bonded, and capital
ists are on the ground picking up all
good claims as fast, as developed
enough to show what they are. .
Grand Forks has a population of
about 600 and is well supplied with all
kinds of business houses. At present
the ground is covered with snow and
there is fine sleighing. There is less
windy weather here than in any place
lever lived. Snow never drifts; the
air is dry, and it must be a very healthy
place. ; Grand Forks is three miles
north of the boundary line..'. It is the
outlet as,, well as inlet for this entire
mining country and is so situated that
no railroad can be built from the coast,
the north or the south without coming
through this pass..
And now a word to those who may
think of coming to this country. Do
not come unless you have money
enough to start some business or to
work for yourself, or enough to keep
you till yon can strike something that
will pay. There is common laborers
enough here now to do all the work.
This is a bad country to get broke in,
as a beggar or tramp is picked up and
placed where he will not trouble any
one or be troubled by others. If this
finds space in your paper, I may send
you more news . about the mines as I
see them. A. B. Jones.
The Mt. Hood Toll Road. ;
Portland, Or., Feb. 18, 1897. Mr.
W. A. Langi lie, Hood River, Or.,
Dear Sir: I understand that there is
considerable, feeling in your county
against our toll road, and that an effort
will be made to have the 'charter de
clared forfeited, and to appropriate the
road as public property. I believe that
such agitations usually spring from a
lack of understanding or knowlege as
to the actual facts of the case; and
while, personally, X am utterly in
different as to what is done,' I will
briefly suggest to you mv views of the
matter. And you are at liberty to use
this letter in any way you may see tit,
for the information of our fellow-citizens.
' '.. .
Mr. W. M. Ladd and I went into
the Cloud Cap Inn enterprise at the
earnest solicitation of settlers and
others interested iu the Hood River
valley, not so much because . we be
lieved that it would be a good invest
ment financially as in the hope that it
would attract tourist travel to Portland
and be of general benefit to this entire
region. Of course, we did hope that
our money would not be entirely lost,
as it has been.
In clearing out the old trail, repair
ing the county road, and cutting a
flrst-clast mouutain wagon road to the
top of tbe-mouutain, we expended over
twenty thousand dollars. This was all
spent, on the road, and the citizens of
Hood River valley got the' benefit of a
good deal of it. In -building the inn,
and attempting ..' to operate a stage
line, we sank about nineteen thousand
dollars more; and the Hood .River
valley people also got the benefit of a
large part of this. We made it a point,
so far as we could, to buy all supplies
for. the inn,- and . for the':horses and'
stage stations, from the settlers in the
valley. Not one cent of this money
has ever come back to us, with the ex
ception of twenty-two dollars, In all,
received as tolls. I do not think,
therefore, that the people can proceed
against us on the ground that we are a
wealthy and bloated corporation, or a
Since we abandoned the expensive
experiment of keeping the inn our
selves, the only rent we have, ever ex
tracted from you, as you know, has
been that you beep the road in good
condition. t ,
Besides lieing the Incorporators ' of
the-Alt. Hood Stage Co., we are the
owners of the stock of the old wagon
road and trail company, the Coe
company. Relying upon the good
faith and good wishes, as we thought.
of the citizens of Hood River valley,
we have not been particular about re
cording and keeping technically correct
tne nistory or the new corporation,
the Mt. Hood Stage Co.; but our rights
under the old trail company are in my
opinion perfect. And I think, 'that,
with regard to the- new corporation,
also, there exists no actual ground for
forfeiture of our rights. But I under
stand that it is. intended to attempt
such a forfeiture. -
Under the law of Oregon, the county
cannot deprive us of this road. ' except
by paying us the money we have ex
pended in its construction and repair,
together with interest. The money
which we put into this enterprise was
honestly earned, by hard labor; audi
would be very glad to see even a small
part of it today, as I have plenty of
use for it. ' '
If, after the foregoing statement. It Is
still.the desire of the citizens of Hood
River valley to forfeit and appropriate
the property and rights of Mr. Ladd
And myself, we shall not oppose them
ii, the wptuts or in any way. .

alidonseutbf Mr. Ladd. Very truly

which arrived too late for lust Week's

Hon. B. S Huntington, Salem, Or.

that you were tavorabte to nis election.

Here follows 66 names.
MR. HUNTINGTON'S REPLY.
SALfest, Feb. 17, 1897. Messrs. A. S.
Blowers and others. Hood River. Or.
Gentlemen: I am just in receipt of your
petition and take pleasure in stating to the United States in 1895 was 625,208,
you my position relative to the subject , 975 pounds, valued at $96,130,717. For
of the same. the same year our importations of tea
During the June campaign a large ! amounted to 97253,458 pounds, valued
number of ray constituents in Wasco! at $13,171,379. These are wholesale
and Sherman counties, who are now
strenuously opposed to the re election
of Senator Mitchell, were striving to
obtain from myself and other nominees
for the legislature a pledge that we
would support him. I always said be
was not my Hrst choice, but that I ex
pected to support him. At that time I
fully expected to do so, unless my first
choice should be a candidate, a condi
tion I did not expect would happen.
Just before election I Was threatened
with defeat through the candidacy of
T. R. Coon, who was then running as
an independent candidate,- unless I
pledged unconditionally to vote for
Mr. Mitchell. . Such pledge ,1 never
made, though I did assure some of Mr.
Mitchell's friends that I . expected to
vote for him if he placed himself square
ly upon the St. Louis platform. This
Mr. Mitchell never did do, although
he did construct a platform of bis own
out of a portion of the republican plat
form and placed himself squarely upon
that MitchelKplatform. - . ..
When I came to Salem I found the
opponents of Senator Mitchell, among
whom are many men who were elected
through the Influence of. Mr. Mitchell,
opposing the organization of the house,
His friends were all favoring organiza
tion, and not a single anti-Mitchell
man was disposed to hasten the organ
ization. Notwithstanding I felt that a
majority of my constituents were now
opposed to Mr. Mitchell, there being a
marked change in the sentiment of the!
people since last June in this respect, I
felt it my duty to do all in my power
to effect organization and let the sen
atorial question and all other questions
lie determined in a lawful way, and
therefore I did all I could to organize
the house. After organization I fa
vored voting for senator, and on the
second Tuesday after organization I
joined in casting a vote and voted for
the man who was always my first
Choice. On the day following the law
requires the members to meet in joint
assembly and ballot, "and the person
who receives a majority of all the votes
of the joint assembly, a majority of all
the members elected to both houses be
ing present and voting, shall be de
clared duly elected. If no person re
ceives such majority on the first day,
the joint assembly shall meet at twelve
o'clock meridian of each succeeding
day during the session, of the legisla
ture, and shall, take at least one vote,
until a senator is elected." I met with
the joint assembly three times; no vote
was taken us the law directs, and no
result of roll call was announced.' I
thereupon withdrew, not because there
were less thau a majority present, but
because the joint assembly was not
couducted as the law plainly directs.
The purpose of not taking a ballot, as
the lriends of Mr. Mitchell informed
me, was because, after balloting, a
number of the members who were
pledged to Mr. Mitchell would leave
him for other candidates. Thus, in the
face of the law, it was proposed to de
lay the settlement of the senatorial
question, and incidentally all other
questions, until Mr. Mitchell could be
elected. I refused to approve this
course and withdrew. I shall not re
turn until the men who are oontroling
tne proceedings are willing to conform
to the law. When they do so in good
faith, I shall return, regardless of the
numbers present. ' I am always glad
to comply with the- wishes of a major
ity: of my constituents when I can do
so properly and comply with the law.
But I must use my own discretion as
to my course with respect to the irreg
ularly conducted joiutassetnbly. Yours
B. S. Huntington.

of "A Day With the President at His

General Harrison, in this article, has

and vigor, relative to the annoyances
that are visited upon a chief executive
by persistant ornce-seekers, ana be sug
gests a unique plan, by which the
