The II. R. F. G. Union is tho original

the only concern using tho co-operative
principle by which all the profits go to
the growers, it has estabiisheu bus:
ness relations with tiie most responsible
fruit dealers iu all the markets, and the
question is, "Why pay tribute to un
necessary middlemen and speculators."
Co-operation is becoming the watch
word in all the fruit-gtT-'ing sections;
not only in California but in Colorado,
with its vast melon shipments, and in
the strawberry-growing sections of the
Untea Mates. Ihe bouthwest, an ably
conducted horticultural paper of Spring
field, Mo., says;
"Jf co-operution Is right, fruitgrowers
should never become discouraged. It is
not in armed conflict alone that courage
and patriotism ore manifested, and all
the great victories that lift up human
ity are not won by the sword. Bear in
mind thit more is accomplished by co
operation than is credited to it, Asso
ciations serve to restrain powerful cor
porations from adding to their present
charges. Without organization the pro
ducers will have no profit."
Most assuredly the growers are en
titled to receive all the profit that prop
erly belongs to them,
Some Pointed Questions,
Editor Glacieb : Noticing in the last
issue the petition for a licensed saloon
in the town of Hood River, and feeling a
real interest in the welfare of the place
and its surrounding country, I beg to
submit for consideration a few of the
many points that are involved, seeing
that an invitation is exteuded for that
1. As the present saloon enterprise is
carried on without the consent of the
locally governed, will the principle in
volved concerning the will of the people
be inviolate by granting a licenser
2. If there are evils connected with a
quantity establishment.will they be less
ened by the more extended retail traffic?
3. If the principle of license shall car
ry, must not the legal right of suffrage of
one be extended to all who may apply?
4. As increased patronage in that line
is intended by the petitioners, will the
results of such patronage justify an en
tire submission to the licensed system?
6. If, it is now difficult for parents to
isolate their children from the evil influ
ences of the saloon, would their diffi
culties be lessened by increasing the in
fluences? 6. Will a licensed saloon bo a financial
gain to the. merchant? For do not the
dimes and dollars spent over the bar
leave the merchant's customers with
less to pay bills and make new pur
chases? Villi credit lists be decreased
and cash receipts enlarged?
7. What about tho argument "that
the saloon will stay if not licensed?"
What has been your experience in the
8. Will the public health bo advanced?
For does not the general use of liquor
render men less able to resist disease or
recover from its ravages?
9. Will the village marshal or sheriff
have less to do under the license system,
or will he need an assistant at times
and demand more pay? Will crime be
lessened and wives and daughters more
secure upon the streets?
10. What about mortgages? Docs the
license help to lift mortgages, or will not
general indebtedness be increased?
11. If Hood River has maintained a
permanent growth financially and mor
ally without a licensed saloon, will the
same progress bo more apparent by a
licensed one? ' Make some comparisons
Fargo, North Pakota, and Moorhead,
Minnesota, for example. The latter has
45 saloons, paying f5U0 each. Fargo has
none. The towns lie upon opposite
sides of the river, with equal advantages
and facilities, and while Mooiliead., with
so much license accruing, is falling be.
hind annually in citv improvements
and population, her per capita tax is in
creasing. Fargo has added in tho last
year about one million dollars in build
ings, has fine streets, a large increase in
population, and its per capita tax is
among the very lowest in the United
States. Make other comparisons.
12. Will the farmers, 'who are the
backing to the town, be benefitted?
Will the results oi, a licensed saloon, put
hinges upon the gates, locks upon the
doors, glass in the windows, clothes
upon women and children and shoes
upon their feet? Will increased traffic
bring comforts to the home, happiness
to the heart and education to the miud?
id. Will tfie reputation of Hood River
as a model plage for people to come to
rear and educate their children be bet
tered by the willing existence of the
14. Will my boy, or yours, or- vour
neighbor's children, have a better ex
ample before them and thus be made
stronger to resist a downward course?
lo. is it true that one or more licensed
saloons will build up the place? Will
they build school rooms, found libraries
or in any way benefit the voung?
18. For whose benefit w the saloon
17. Will tho money accruing to the
town from the license more than bal

liow about the results of the "treat
ing system" that surely follow retail
liquor traffic. Is it not netter that the
present enterprise should exist, if stay it
must, without the encouragement and
support guaranteed bv a license.
Hoping that these points may touch

As S, BLOWERS & SON,
too often happens, in such cases, wealth
prevailed, the question of'Men or Deer?"
was settled in favor of the latter, and
today all oyer- the Highlands may be
seen piles of ruins where once were
thousands of happy homes, and one iy
travel for days and hear no sound save
the curlew's lonely cry. As a consequence
of that short-sighted and inhuman
policy, Scotland a best and most virile
blood, has been scattered to the- ends of
tho earth-a calamity that caa not be
oftset by countless columns of, dollars
If ever, in. the course of time, a gov
ernment landJeasing law shall become
a necessity, we sincerely hope ita farm
ers will have sense enough not to make
it, as in the Foster bill, a penal offense
to trespass upon leased land. The most
autocratic English lord could ask for no
sore than that,, and the America.! peo
ple would never stand it. Fossil Journal.
