Hie Oregon Apple,
From the Orcgimlan,
Two Oregoiiians walking down Broad
way, New York, one day early in the
current month stopped for a moment to
admire a display of fresh fruits in the
show windows of the celebrated Hicks
establishment., at the comer of Twenty
seventh street. The exhibit was one of
amazing variety and beauty, and suitable
to the season, was especially rich in fall
and winter apples. The red Ppitzen
berg made the bravest show, while the
green ami yellow Newtown Pippin was
scarcely less conspicuous. IJut what at
tracted and interested the Oregoiiians
even more than the fruit itself was the
fact that each and every package bore
an Oregon label. More interesting still,
the sidewalk in front of the store for a
considerable space w as covered with half
boxes of apples, repacked with scrupu
lous care, each hearing it private address,
some in this country, but the greater
number on the other side of tho Atlantic.
Almost every country in Europe was in
cluded in the 20 or more foreign ad
dresses, far the larger number being in
England and France.
Here was a matter for inquiry, and the
Oregoiiians lost no time in seeking the
facts of this curious traffic in Oregon ap
ples. And it was a story to please an
Oregonian mightily. "We get," said the
dealeJ, "our best apples from Oregon,
and the one fault we have to find Is that
there are not enough of them to meet
the demand. Here in New York there
is a very large buying public far more
concerned about quality than about price.
What we call our best trade really cares
nothing at all about what a fine food
product costs, provided it is the very
best of its kind. Take these rich people
w ho live up the avenue, for example.
Why, through their butlers and house
keepers they are always on the lookout
for therareBtand the best, and they will
pay any price required to get w hat they
want. It is to this special trade that
the very best of the Oregon apples go,
and never at any time do we have
enough gilt-edge stock to fill our orders.
Why those apples 011 show are sold, and
we are delaying the delivery simply be
cause we want the goods to top off our
window display. We can't keep such
stuff in the house two hours, and we
could have sold those goods over half a
Asked about the boxed fruit on the
sidewalk, the dealer said: "That's a
very interesting part of the business. It
is a growing fashion, especially in the
winter season, to make gifts of fruit,
and probably 20 jer cent of w hat goes
out from this store carries with it a card
conveying the buyer's compliments.
For this purpose the Oregon apple is a
hot favorite, due as much to its fine ap
pearance as to its good quality." At
this point he consulted his order book,
and continuing, said: "Today we have
orders for 21 gift boxes of the best ap
ples we can dig up and that always
means Oregon apples. Yesterday we
had 12, and the day before that 31. The
day before sailing of the fast ocean liners
is always a good day for the fancy fruit
business, becauso there are always many
orders for goods to be sent to friends or
relatives on the other side. Those goods
you see on the sidewalk are mostly for
Christman presents, and if you will ex
amine the addresses on the boxes you
will see that they go everywhere. Of
course, only the best stuff goes in this
way, and nobody cares w hat the cost is.
Wo prefer always to fill, foreign orders
with Oregon apples, for they are usually
handsomer, ami always crisper, and bet
ter in flavor than any other apple which
comes to this market."
Inquiry as to the volume of European
trade in apples brought out still more in
teresting and important facts. There is,
the dealer declared, practically no limit
to the business that might be done with
the three countries of England, France
and Germany, if the right sort of goods
were available in sufficient quantities.
Many hundreds of tons of American ap
ples go to these countries; but there are
what the trade calls "barrel goods"
that is.Eastern apples packed in barrels,
and for tho most part stuff of inferior
quality. They make 110 appeal to the
better sort of trade in fact they make
the basis of a good deal of joking on the
other side, just as the dried prune does
with us. "Until very recently," con
tinued the obliging dealer, the European
public has not discriminated between
grades or the brands of American goods;
but tho Oregon apple is coming more
and more into notice, and it is now
particularly named in many of our for
eign orders. Of course no better means
of advertising a fruit product could be
devised than the practice of gift-making,
which I have just described. Whoever
gets a box of these fine goods is not like
ly to forget the Oregon apple, and he is
almost certain to inquire for it when
he conies to purchase fruit."
Interested greatly in what they had
learned about the Oregon apple trade in
New York, from the retailer's point of
view, the Oregoiiians on the following day
sought the district oil the west sideof
Manhattan Island w here the w holesalers
and brokers in fruit products are to be
found. From the visitor's standpoint it
is very far from being a pleasant part of
town. The streets are narrow and dirty,
crowded with a prodigious tratlie, while
tho sidewalks are so cluttered up with
boxes and crates that one picks his way
along w ith dillieulty. The first visit w as
to Mr. II. 0. Vogel, of Vogel & Co.,gen
eral commission merchants and whole
sale dealers in foreign and domestic
fruits, !f40 Washington street. Mr. Vo
gel was found to be a very courteous
and intelligent man. "Yes," he said,
in response to inqyirv, the Oregon ap-
pie is the licet apple in the Kastem mar-
Let, and, for that matter, the best in
the whole world. It looks better, tastes

1 nx-ceding to further discussion of the
apple question. Mr. Yogvl declared that
the only serious competitor with the :
Oregon is the California apple from the
vast orchard near Watsonvilie and Ixm-
ixh "Here," he said, "is curious
fact. California fruits in gvnornl, while
not notable for flavor, are line in appear-
anee, and, owing to toughness of skin
and the tirm.tilirousqnahty of their pulp.
are exceptionally gixxl carriers and j
keepers. This is true of the California 1
Jx-ach, and of pretty much all fruits ex-
cept the apple. California sends us1
gome very fine apples, but they lack the
crispnepa of the best Oregon good, and
they will not Htand storage or ocean car
riage like the Oregon product. When you
go home, say to your orchardmen that
they have the best goods and the best
reputation, and thatour whole complaint
in that ihey don't give us enough. Cal
ifornia sends us carloads where your peo
ple send us boxefi, and while we have no
'serious criticism of the California goods,
we prefer the fluff that cornea from
Oregon." Mr. Vogel could give no fig
ures indicative of the volume of the trade
in Oregon apples in New York, and re
ferred his visitors to Austin, Kimball &
Co., of 70 and 78 Park place, who are
the largest importcrsaud handlers of ap
plet! in the New York market.
Mr. Kimball, while entirely civil, was
less dUpofed to talk than any of the oth
er dealers vii-itcd. Evidently he regard
ed his expert knowledge of the apple
trade his private property. However, he
continued the assertions above quoted,
to the effect that the Oregon fruit is the
queen of the apple market, and that
criticism was only to be made respecting
the guarantee of the output. Asked
if he could tiffor any suggestions
likely to advance the interests of the
Oregon growers, he could think of
nothing. "The Oregon jieople appear
to know their business pretty
well," he said. "They pick, pack and
get their goods in the market in better
shape than anybody else. . They have
the call, and all they need to do is to
maintain their standards of growing and
handling. Above all, tell them to keep
their orchards clean. The various ap
ple pests have ruined the reputation of
many another district; do not let this
stupendous blunder be repeated in Ore
gon. Every diseased tree ought to lie
cut down and burned; every infested ap
ple ought to be destroyed not left to
rot and breed after its kind but given
to the flames or to the hogs. Tell your
people to safeguard their reputation by
keeping up the character of their prod
uct, let them do this, then multiply
the orchards, and the apple trade w ill
be theirs permanently.
A Commercial Feature Added
At the monthly buhiness meeting of
the Hassalo club, in December, it was
decided to reorganize affairs so as to ad
mit a commercial feature into the con
stitution of the club. The organization
will retain its adopted name, but in
stead of being a strictly social club, its
main features after this will bo that of
a commercial club, which will do all in
its power to further the business inter
ests of Hood River and Hood River val
ley. The new club will endeavor to in
crease its membership so as to inchkh.
all the business and professional men of
the town, in order that they may the
better work together for all that is good
for the town. Attempts w ill bo made to
increase and expand the business of our
merchants, to advertise our resources
and productions abroad, to interest out
side capitalists to locate manufactures
in our midst, and in fact to act as a sort
of board of trade or chamber of com
merce. Tho objects and purposes of the club
as reorganized read as follows:
To form and maintain a club organ
ization for the purpose of promoting so
cial intercourse among its members and
developing, the physical and mental ca
pacities of its members; to encourage
and stimulate interest in good, standard
papers, books and periodicals, and to
foster, encourage and promote interest
in mills and factories and to aid in any
wav as seen fit bv the club in the im
provement and advancement of the city J
ot Hood Kiver aim iloou Kiver valley,
and to that end this club shall have
newer to organize, support, manage, con
tract, maintain and carry on a club
house, council and assembly rooms,
reading rooms, library or libraries, gym
nasiums and grounds for the holding of
out-door and in-door sportu, meetings
and exercises, and the carrying on of
literary, Bocial, athletic and otberganies,
sports and amusements, to provide tor
admission, government ami expulsion of
members; to make and enforce rules and
regulations for the government of its
houses, libraries, rooms, gymnasiums
and grounds, and the meetings, exer
cises, sports, games and amusements
carried on thereat; to charge and collect
and to enforce payment of dues, assess
ments and tines from its members; to
elect, choose and appoint and to dis
charge and displace officers, servants
and employes; and to do generally
whatsoever may be requisite or conve
nient to he done in connection with the
carrying out of any or all of the objects
The officers of t he club for tho ensuing
year are: G. E. Williams, president;
John Leland Henderson, vice president ;
D. E. Rund, secretary; J. F. Watt,
treasurer. An additional administrat
ive body consists of a board of directors,
constituted by the ollicers and three
members appointed by tho president.
The initiation fee is $", and dues are
placed at $1 per month. There are at
present about twenty-five active mem
bers. Upon the payment of a small fee
the Hassalo club of Hood River could
become a member of the Oregon state
organization of commercial clubs as a
sub-board of trade.
The social and club features of the
organization will still bo maintained.
The club rents comfortable rooms in the
second story of the Jackson building,
where it has about $100 worth of furni
ture, including a pool table and outfit.
The club is also acquiring a library of
the late magazines and periodicals. On
the reading table may be found at any
time such standard magazines as the
Cosmopolitan, New York Independent,

Few men appreciate what their good

dinner excellently served, and a wife

raw material. He has no estimation of
the fatigues and anxieties of marketing.

been in its complete and orderly condi

were necessary to produce it than the

And the last deflaul Hag did tall,
The Kallant leader who bad won
Said "there was glory enough for all."

The noble feelings of tilts man,
Whose soul was groat and good and fair,
As he liruvely stood In the fiery van
And cheered Ins men In lofty deeds
Of valor and patriotism grand

A fleet of heroes he commands.

The outline, of a hero great;
Unless that hero chaneo to he

That this weakness ol folly and spite
Should ever attempt to set aside
The verdict of honor and right.

That It thrills ev'ry patriot's heart
Throughout ev'ri part of our land
Wit h a glory that ne'er can depart
With a hero that's willing to share
Ev'ry triumph that to him may fall,
Our honor bids us to be fair,
For there's glory enough for all.
The future years will feed the flame,
And 'twill yet moro brightly glow,
For those to nunc will hear the fame
Of the hero of Santiago;
And those of microscopic soul,
Or purely arbitrary bent,
Will soon have reached their earthly goal
Together to oblivion sent.

Too great fur a pigmy to seize;

Nor how much tend mallgners throw,
For the people know who won the day
