appear from the action
some of the fruit growers lust
lay that the feasabillty of doing
iwer'a Unlou and organizing under
a new name is being discussed.
It niny be that the old union
lias outlived its - usefulness and
that an organization with a . new
name would draw more patronage and
be more ciutttttful, but it is very doubt
ful. The union has been a success from
the start, and being managed every
year by good business talent on busi
ness principles, him grown steadily in
favor. During the past year it shipped
00 per cent of the strawberry crop, and
there Is no reason why it should not do
even better the coming season. Its
good record 'of last season promised
increased patronage. Because the 80
per cent of the strawberry crop of 1899
asked for at the stockholders union was
not Immediately pledged to the union
some have become disheartened and
talk as if the union had lost the confi
dence of growers and had better be re
placed by something under a new
name. Others" still believe that the
present union is stronger today than it
ever has been, stronger than anything
that may take its place; that it is only
necessary for the officers' to go ahead
and prepare their plans for the coming
shipping season, and the majority of
the fruit growers will again give it
their patronage. The union enjoys a
prestige that it has taken years to build
, up. It has a name and reputation
that is known to railroad men and
commission houses wherever our ber
ries have found a market. Agents of
the transportation companies have al
ready been here to consult the officers
of the union in regard to shipping the
crop for next year. But the union has
not been in a position to transact busi
ness with these agents . because it
doesn't know what the growers want
or are going to do! The stockholders
of the union elected the best men from
among their number, and re-elected
them, and it would seem that it is
their plain duty to go ahead and do
what they think is ' best towards se
curing freight rates and looking up
markets. The fruit growers will do
' the rest by. furnishing the fruit and
ship, with the concern that promises,
by good management, the best returns
to the grower. The Glacier believes
that no stronger nor better shipping
association can be formed than the
present union, but it hopes something
satisfactory may come of the meeting
Promises, it is alleged, were made on
behalf of the administration when the
resolution to annex the Hawaiian isl
ands was pending last winter that no
steps would be taken for many years
looking to their admission, to state
hood. Relying upon, these promises,
many senators and representatives who
were opposed to annexation reluctant
ly voted for the resolution. Now the
administration has offered a bill giving
Hawaii a territorial form of govern
ment and making possible its admis
sion as a state. The prevailing senti
ment In congress, it is .said, favors a
government for Hawaii like that which
has been established in Alaska.
Cornelln8 N. Bliss, secretary of the
Interior, has intimated his intention to

Someone has figured out that the
moderate habit of smoking three 5-cent
cigars each day for twenty-five years
will amount to over $3,000. An ex
cessive smoker, who begins at 18 and
cotitiuues until the age of 68 (unless the
. habit kills him earlier), will consume a
fortune of from $25,000 to $50,000, ac
cording to the number and strength of
the clgara he Bmokes. .

"We put all our best manhood into

Award of Damages.
In the county court on Tuesday the
appraisers appointed to assess damages
for right of way at the mouth of Hood
river for the Hood River Transporta
tion and Boom I'o. iade their report.
The appraisers condemn 36 acres of river
channel and sandbar to t lie use of the
Transportation and Boom Co. and allow
the Hood River Lumbering Co. $2,000
danfages. For crossing t he land of the
Lumbering Co. near Sandy Flat an
additional $40 is allowed. Mr. A.
Winans, appearing for the Hood Rivsr
Lumbering Co., refused to accept the
amount of damages awarded, which
amount was tendered him in $20 gold
pieces, and the Company has 20 days
in which to accept the money or appeal
the case to the circuit court. The cit
izens of Hood River raised tills money
by organizing the Hood River Trans
portation and Boom Co. with a capital
stock of $10,0(10 which was intended for
improving the . river, and ' paying
damages lor right of way. An assess
ment was made to meet the payment
of damages that might be made in
favor of the Lumbering Co.
Mr. Winans considers that the dam
ages should at least have amounted to
$20,000, while the citlzensof Hood River
generally consider that. $2,040 is too
much lor a purpose which will, 1$ is
claimed, benefit Mr. Winans and his
associates as much as it will anybody,
they owning much valuable, timber
land and j! her property that will nat
urally be enhanced in price if a big
saw mill, said to cut from 100,000 to
150,000 feet of lumber a day, is located
here. - ;
Mrs. Matlie Oiler is the owner of
83 63 acres of land at the mouth of the
river, part of which, 36 acres, is con
demned for boom purposes. Two years
ago she purchased 49.79 acres of this
laud for $500 the balance she pre
empted or homesteaded. It is all of it
sandbar or river channel, but it is the
key to the mill situation.
Honors for Hood River.
Since our last issue Hon. E. L.
Smith has received one gold medal,
two bronze medals and four diplomas
awarded to Hood River valley by the
Oregon Industrial exposition. The
medals bear the following inscription:
"Awarded to Hood River Valley for
best Association Exhibit (gold medal).
Awarded to Hood River Valley Best
Winter apples. (Bronze medal) Best
Fall apples." On reverse side there is
an engraving'of the exposition build
ing. , Three of the diplomas were for
apple exhibits and the fourth for 2d
best building stone from the quarry of
of Wilson Winans. We congratu
late our fruit growers on receiving all
the Hist premiums awarded to apples
at the Portland exhibition. And this
Is not all. Residents of Michigan and
other states of the middle West have
frequently contended that their apples
were of superior flavor to those grown
in this section, but Mr. Smith is in re
ceipt of a letter from Supt. Doscln
stating mere were no apples at tne umu
ha exposition superior in flavor and
texture than those snt by hitu from
his Beulah Land orchard and that a
medal was awarded him. . These "ev
idences of superiority of our fruits
should encourage growers to take better
care of tbeit orchards. Not less than
$10,000 was lost to our orchardists the
past season by neglect in spraying aiit
cultivation, and we are-glad to learn
that our hoticulturists are determined
that this condition of affairs will not

R. C. Judson, industrial agent of the
O. R. & N., just returned from a trip
to the Inland Empire, was interviewed
by a Telegram reporter. He said:
I have just finished locating a big
lumbering manufacturing , plant at
Hood River, and there are several other
enterprises in contemplation at that
place. The ones there are doing well.
The canning establishment has been
greatly encouraged by the manner in
which its jrnducls have been received.

it has been impossible to supply the de

eye on Hood River and the country up
the Columbia, and you will see some
truly wonderful things before long.

What Is the use of making a better
article than your competitor if you can
not get a better price for it?
Ans. As there .is no difference in
the price the public will buy only the
better, so that while our profits may be
smaller on a single sale they wil be
much greater in the aggregate.
How can yau get the public to know
your make is the best?
If both articles are brought promi
nently before the public both are cer
tain to be tried and the public will
very quickly pass judgment on them
and use only the belter one.-

Cheap Labor From the Orient.
Ex-Attorney General Miller raises a
very interesting question. He points
out that only last March the supreme
court decided that any child born
within United States territory even
though both its parents lie Chinese is
an American citizen and cannot be ex
cluded from his rights as such. ' Judge
Miller suggests that it we make United
States territory out of the Philippines,
by any form of annexation, we shall
make American citizens of everybody
born there. The outlook for an influx
of "cheap labor" after annexation
seems interesting. New York World.

Still On His Travels.
A fellow who gives his name as John
K. Stocking, and who seems to be do
ing quite a , business on a very small
capital, has been about town for several
days. During his short stay about
town he has traded a band of horses
supposed to be somewhere east of the
mountains for a farm, bought a pretty
good house, rented two or three others,
posed as a Grand Army man, sponged
several square meals, and he appears to
be still on the hunt for other worlds to
eonquor. He seems to be a little daft,
and yet rather smooth in some ways.
