3food liver (alacier. THURSDAY, MARCH 26, 1908. Reported Saltf or Big Mill. A report wan current on the street of Hood River during tlie fore pari of the week tliat the Oregon Lumber company has purchased the big eaw mill and timber lands of the Lost Lake Lturfber company. A ulacier reporter sought out representatives of both companies but neither aide had any information to make public. As Charles Early of (be Oregon Lumber company would neit her deny nor affirm the report, it is a safe conjecture that the sale will really take place. The sale price is reported to be from 125,000 to $132,000. Further par ticulars will be forthcoming next week Price for Picking and Packing. Hood River strawberry growers this year will pay a cent and a half a box for picking, and $1 a day or half a cent a box for packing. This is the decision reached at a meeting of 75 strawberry men in a. u. u. vv. naif, last Saturday The meeting was presided over by II F. Davidson, manager of the Davidson Fruit company. Mr. Davidson stated that his company and the Fruitgrowers Union were daily receiving letters of in quiry from people who want to come to Hood Kiver to pick strawberries. In order that these people may be given a detinue answer the strawberry men ol the valley should decide on a set price wmcn tney win pay tor picking and packing. Mr. Davidson said further that a great many people after making Inquiry about the price tor picking, etc., do not come because tney cannot be assured that the farmers will provide shelter lor the pickers. The motion that pickers be paid cent and a half a box provoked much discussion. 8. C. Zeigler of White Sal mon said that when the best part of the berry season on his side of the river was over he found it necessary to pay 2 cents or more a box, in order to keep the pickers from crossing to Hood River where berries were more plentiful Borne ot the Hood Kiver growers exper fence the same difficulty, and have had pickers leave early patches in the lower part ol the valley lor better pick inir farther ud the vallev. A suggestion that pickers be secured by contract for the season, and that they should forfeit a percentage of their earnings by leaving before the end of the season, met with little favor. Judge A. It. Uyrkett re marked that as the price of wageemvery- where is higher now than lor years past, the customary price of cent and a half a box may not be sufficient inducement to secure pickers. An amendment was proposed making ine price tor picking a cent ana three quarters, and riving packers three- fourths of a cent a box. This would mean an additional cost of 9 cents to the grower, and was voted down by a big majority. The difficulty of keening nickers throughout the season and of securing satisfactory work is a serious question with the growers. Lee Morse said he treated his pickers with consideration and had the same ones return each year. During the hot days he keeps his two boys packing drinking water to the pickers, and also has them carry the nand crates to the packing house. A.u, Btaten thought the growers should pro vide a comfortable building as shelter for the pickers. H. C. Bateham offered a scheme for building bunk and mess houses for the pickers at some central location in each neighborhood. B. F. Shoemaker thought the growers were too much at the mercy of the ditch companies and that it was up to the strawberry men to do something to secure more irrigating water. Those having strawberry crates had their say and the meeting adjourned. Crop Estimated at 80,000 Crates. This yea. 's crop of strawberries is es timated to reach so.uuo crates, or more. No definite estimate has as vet been se cured this spring, and these figures are based on the estimates made last fall, when the Increased acreage was planted This estimate is considered rather low by Borne, who think the total number of crates will reach 90,000 or more. The 1902 crop amounted to between 57,000 and om.uuu cratcB. It is too early in the season to secure an estimate on prices. The crops in California and the Eastern states will govern the prices to a great extent, and it will depend on whether the California and Eastern strawberries ripen at or about the same time. The demand. though, still keeps up for the Hood River product, and if the right quality of fruit is put up, mere win ue liuie to worry a uo in regarding the price. G. J. GesHling. secretary of the Hood River Fruit Growers' Union, announces that this year the union will ship noth iug but first-class berries. A rigid in spection will be enforced, and if any Derries.tall below the average they will be marked second or third class, as they may be, and the grower of the Bame will receive returns for just the quality of fruit he ships. The union expects to develop new markets this season in North Dakota, Iowa and Nebraska. It has been found that markets in the smaller cities, such as Fargo and Orand Forks, are more satisfactory than the larger cities. Odell Jiotes. B. T. Young is planting 500 trees; Mr. Ehrck, 400; M.
