THURSDAY, JULY 23, 1903.
tune Against Hershey Disiuiascd.
A deafening storm of applause and
stamping of feet greeted the verdict of
Justice Nickelsen-wheu, after a prelim
inary trial, he dismissed the ease ugainst
Alvin 0. Hersbey. The 100 farmers
and patrons of the ditch company,
who had gathered to hear the triul,
were unreserved in their sympathy for
the defendant throughout the proceed
ings, and at the rendering of the de
cision, cheered to the eclio for their
The case against Mr. Hersbey was a
charge made by the Valley Improve
ment company that he had taken
water not belonging to him; that he
had taken the same with malicious in
tent and without color of right. Her-1
shey had not paid for his irrigating
water on June 1, as is the understood
custom of the company, and on July
10 the ditch tender shut off Ilershey's
water. Mr. Hersbey immediately
knocked out the obstruction and his
From the argument of the defense it
appeared that Mr. Hersbey had con
tracted tor 30 inches of water for the
season of 1903; had given bis word that
he would pay for the same, and there
fore the Valley Improvement company
had uo cause to shut off his supply.
Prosecuting Attorney Frank Menefee
of The Dalles appeared fur the prosecu
tion, while A. A. Jayne of Hood River,
assisted by Attorney Minor of Cotton,
Teal A Minor, corporation attorneys
of Portland, bandied the defense. To
accommodate all interested spectators,
the trial was held in A. O. U. V. hall,
where over 100 fanners and patrons of
the ditch compauy gathered to listen
to the case.
The hearing before Justice Nickelsen
took place Saturday morning and occu
pied about an hour and a half. The
only persons called to the w itness stand
were Frank Davenport, president of
the Valley Improvement company, his
son Frank Davenport, jr., and Thomas
Shere, both employes of the ditch com
pany, and Truman Butler, cashier in
llutler & Co.'s bank. In the afternoon
the attorneys made their pleas, and his
honor, Justice Nickelsen, decided the
Just previous to the decision, Frank
Davenport announced that Mr. Cham
bers was present from Eugene, and
that after the trial there would be a
meeting of the ditch putrous, when the
complaints of the water users would be
heard, and any suggestions for better
ment of the service would tie received.
When Mr. Chambers called for remarks,
there were calls from all parts of the
room of "Hive us water!" "Why
don't you get enough water?" was
asked. "Ikcause somebody steals it,"
was the reply. This brought forth
more noise, cheers and whistles, and
Mr. Chambers wondered what was
coming. The stormy scene was in ten-
si tied when two ditch patrons were ac
cusing each other of surreptitiously
takintr more water than was rightly
his. It looked for awhile as if a per
sonal encounter would follow, but the
chairman finally restored order, and in
the end the conclusion was that the
Valley Improvement company had at
tempted to supply more water than
tliev took from the river, and that in
the lower part of the valley their flume
wouldn't hold what water they had.
Was It Only a Rumor!
It was romored Sunday that the Hood
River Electric Light and Water com
pany had Hosted $30,000 in bonds, and
was to begin at once on the long-looked'
for water system. Anxious to learn
more about the matter, a Glacier man
sought out Mr. Evans, the first thing
.Monday morning. In his usual guarded
manner the president of the Electric
Licht and Water company refused to di
vulge that bit ol news for which tlie
people of Hood River have patiently
waited now these 10 months.
"No siree; you can't expect us, nor
anybody else, to put our money in a
ater system iu Hood River so long as
the city council lies in waiMo cinch the
company with a contract that will take
away all just returns on the sum in
vested. Capital is too cautious for work
of this kind."
"Then," broke in the reporter, "you
can't tell us anything about the pro
posed water system?"
"Can't say that I could," came the
"Don't you Know anything at all
about the matter?" pleaded the ques
tioner. "Only what I read in the Glacier last
week and the week before."
The reporter found himself up against
it. He ventured a remark on the Daven-port-Hershey
case ; listened to a disser
tation on irrigating companies in gen
eral and the absurdity of outside
capitalists putting $200,000 into a Hood
Itiver ditch, until Charlie Bell and C. L.
Gilbert came in, when the county court
was given a jolt anent the Indian creek
bridge, and adroitly slid out.
Putting In Mis Own Water System.
Aud Winans, who lives in Winans ad
dition, in the east end of town, is put
ting in a water system of his own. He
has secured a gasoline engine, which
will pump water from Hood river to a
point 200 feet high just to the west of
his house. The enuine is alreadv in
operation on the bank of the river, and
Mr. W mans will have a 2000-gallon res
ervoir completed and water running into
it within a tew days, me engine is
guaranteed to raise 112 gallons of water
a minute a distance of 250 foet. The
engine, pipe and tank will cost $350.

his own private use, but says if need be
he can supply all residents in the east
ern part of town as far south as the
south line of Sherman avenue and west
to the Congregational church and Judge
Prattler's residence. Mr. Winans has
been assured that this system of pump
ing water from Hood River can be made
thorough success, for 1(50, so he
stated to a Glacier man, an engine can
be secured which will pump 84 gallons a
minute to the highest point above town.
This would give the city an abundance
of the best water in the world.
Finds Orchards in Splendid Shape.
The Glacier man, senior, took a trip up
the East Side, Friday afternoon, as far
as William Kennedy's place. He vis
ited the orchards and farms of William
Foss, J. L. Carter, F:arl Prat her, S. L.
Young, T. Kteinhilher mid William
Kennedy. 'Everywhere he went the
orchards were looking well. Spitzen-
burg and lellow Newtown apples will
be nearly a full crop again this season
on the East Side.
William Foss has a thrifty looking
orchard, mostly Yakimas, which prom
ise a fair crop, He set 3UO leiiow New
town and Spitzenhurg trees this last
spring, lie is having a well dug near
his house, and the workmen expect to
strike plenty of water at 25 feet.
Earl I'ratlier, on the s. II. Vox farm,
has 14 acres of strawberries set this last
spring, l he plants nave had good cul
tivation ami are dotiigspleiimuiy with
out irrigation. We have no desire to
injure Mr. Rone s chances for selling
water, but we should never put water
on that 14-acre patch of berries. Plauts
lotikiuk as well as they do, that have
passed through the heat of summer so
lar, it seems to us no noi neea irriga
tion. However. Mr. Prather will ap
ply the water as soon as the ditch
reaches his place.
Mr. Carter now owns aud manages
the fruit farm formerly the property of
M. V. Kami. .Mr. Kand never had the
place looking as well as it does to
day. The old orchard is coming out
nicely, and the young trees set by Mr.
Carter are doing well. Thorough cul
tivation, spraying and thinning the
fruit are processes that are making the
East Side orchards famous for good
T. Steiuliilber, on what was formerly
the John Sweeney place, is making a
great success in apple culture. No or
chards in the valley are kept in better
shape than those of Mr. Stein hilber's.
The 10 acres of apple orchard set by
Mr. Sweeney are still vigorous trees
and doing good service. The trees are
not bearing a full crop this year, but
the apples will be first class. Mr.Stein-
bilber has a young orchard of thrifty-
growing Yelkiw Newtown and Spitz-en-
uurg trees. .Mr. MeinDiiner nas set
1,500 Snitzenburg and Yellow New-
towns. These young trees have
made a wonderful growth. There is no
better soil in the valley for apple than
thatof.Mr. Steinhiltier's. He bought
this place only a few years ago. Then
he had no knowledge of fruit growing;
now he can give the rest of us pointers
in regard to growing fruit.
William Kennedy got a reputation
years ago for growing fine apples. This
year he has charge of the apple orchard
on the Lacy place as well as his own
aud will have a pretty full crop of
winter apples on both. Mr. Kennedy
is an expert in preparing the arsenite
of soda spray, and his neighbors have
come to depend upou him for their
spray mixture. This season ho boiled
500 pounds of arsenic, with which he
served himself and neighbors and the
orchardists of Mosler. In a walk
through bis orchards we observed but
one apple marked by the cod I in moth,
and by cutting into it it was found to
be sound to the core. The poison had
got in its work before the worm had
penetrated much under the skin. Mr.
Kennedy's success in spraying should
give great encouragement to all en
gaged in apple culture.
Good Weather for Snake Stories.
Judge Joseph A. Knox of Dukes val
ley was in town Monday. He was asked
if the weather wasn't warm enough to
bring out the Dukes valley rattlesnakes.
He replied that the rattler's had about
all been killed up in Duke's valley.
This brought forth snake stories from
Sam Bartmess, W. H. Perry, and Com
missioner Hibbard. Sam Bartmess said
he killed a rattlesnake the first day he
landed in Hood River. That was 13
years ago, and he hasn't seen a rattle
snake since. W. H. Perry, while driv
ing with Itia wife below Belmont, several
years ago, saw a rattler as big as his
arm crawl into a culvert. His wife
wouldn't allow him to attempt to kill it.
Commissioner Hibbard said one time,
while he was living on the ranch, a rat
tler crawled under some hay where his
dog made his bed. The dog was bitten
on the fleshy part of the leg. The dog
kept biting the flesh away from the spot
where he was bitten until he had gouged
a hole about an inch deep. He lingered
along and died before the summer was
over. Judge Knox said he had been in
Hood River 20 years and never heard of
a person being bitten by a rattler, but a
horse in Dukes valley was bitten several
years ago and died. Sunday little David
Byerlee, while trudging along the state
road west of his home came upon a good
healthy rattler, which lie "killed and
secured 11 rattles as a trophy. Twenty
years ago rattle snakes were quite plen
tiful, now they are rarely ever found in
the lower part of the valley.
Opposition Boat Line Incorporates.
Articles of incorporation were filed in
the county clerk's office Saturday for
The Dalles Transportation company,
which is organized for the purpose of
building, buying, leasing, owning and
operating steamboats and other craft on
the Columbia and Willamette rivers
between The Dalles, Portland and As
toria and intermediate points. The
incorporators are Captain E. W. Spen
cer, James W. Crichton and J. C. More
land and the capital stock to lie $40,000,
which is divided into 400 Bhares of $100
each. The principal otlice of the com
pany will be The Dalles and it is ex
pected to put the powerful steamer
Charles R. Spencer on the run on or
about August 15.
Manufacturing Candy in Hood River.
Frederic Stewart, an expert in the
manufacture of all kinds of confections,
has opened up in Hood River, in the
house formerly occupied ,by the Pearl
restaurant, next door east of ltartmesB1
furniture store. Mr. Stewart is not alto
gether unknown in Hood River, having
owned a farm here for the past six
years. He has made li is home in Port
land, where he has been engaged in the
confectionery business for yearj. He is
a very competent man and can make
anything in the line of confections.
New Laundry in Operation.
W. G. Carrier is proprietor of Ihwd
River's first steam laundry. This new
industry has been in operation for two
weeks, during which time it has been
running at full capacity. Mr. Carrier
fays he is meeting with good success
and is satisfied the field will afford a
good business. The laundry is located
in a new building at the east eud of Oak
street. The machinery used in the work
:s valued at $1,000. Bradley, the job
printer, has just turned out 1,000 slips
lor tne new laundry.
Rare Literary Treat.
The womans' alliance of the Unitar
ian church will give an afternoon Fri
day, July 31, t the home of Mrs. Elmer
Kand. Mrs. Henrietta R. Eliot, well

Hood River stands excellent chances
of securing a college. The United Breth
ren institution at Philomath is eeeking
a new location, and a contest is on be
tween Hood River and Everett, Wash.,
to secure the school. At a mass meet
ing of citizens Friday night in the opera
house, the scheme for bringing the col
lege to Hood River was stated as fol
lows: An option has been secured on
50 acres of land on Paradise farm, just
west of Dr. W. L. Adams' cottage and
barn for $5,000. It is intended to divide
this tract into lots and secure the sale of
1.50 of them at an average of $200 each,
which will raise $30,000. If this sum is
pledged the college will come to Hood
Mayor T. R- Coon, S. E. Bartmess
and 0. B. Hartley, as a soliciting com
mittee, are circulating subscription
papers, and on Wednesday afternoon
the sale of over 60 lots was promised at
a total of $12,000. The committeemen
are everywhere meeting with encour
agement, and they declare the outlook
to be very favorable.
A meetingof the trustees of Philomath
collge went into session Wednesday
night, when Rev. II. C. Shaffer, Elder
T. Merrill and President B. E. Einer-
ick presented Hood River's offer to the
Philomath college, as is claimed by
those best able to say, is a prosperous,
well managed institution, nonsectarian
in its teaching, of clean, high character,
with a long record of excellent work,
clear of debt, and gives full classical,
scientific, philosophical, normal, busi
ncss.art and musical courses. If the
Hood River people carry out their part
of the contract, the managers of the
college declare that when located here
the institution, with grounds, buildings
and equipment, will be worth $00,000.
It is intended to erect here a main
hall to cost $15,000 and a $4,000 dormi
tory, the work to begin 9 months from
October 1, 1903, and to be completed in
14 months. The college will open for
work October 1, 1904, with at least six
It is further proposed to syndicate a
portion of the lots which the Hood
River people muBt pledge themselves to
sell. The methods of payment are: one
fourth October l,1903;one-fourth March
1, 1904, the balance October 1, 1904.
At the mass meeting Tuesday even
ing, Chairman Shaw called for an ex
pression of opinion from those present
as to the best method of selling the lots.
Different propositions were offered ond
discussed. Rev. Merrill said great in
terest was being taken in the college
movement by the people in the country,
and he thought many of them would
take stock if a syndicate was formed to
buy lots, or they would buy them indi
vidually. S. E. Bartmess believed the
time was ripe for locating a college here
and felt confident the lots could be sold.
Rev. G. R. Archer of Wasco said the
farmers of Sherman county were well to
do and many of them would by lots if
an agent was sent among them. They
would come here to school their chil
dren. Mrs. T. R. Coon was interested
in having an advanced school. If we
don't got the college her family will
have to move where her children will
have the advantage of advanced schools.
Remarks were also made by W. J. Baker,
T. R. Coon, E H. Sbepard, O. C. Bart
mess, Prof. Emerick, N'. C. Evans, F.A.
Cram, II. M. Abbott, 8. A. Knapp and
O. C. Bartmess. Prof. Emerick desired
the audience to ask him questions re
garding the college. Mr. Cram asked a
good many questions which seemed to
be answered satisfactorily by the pres
ident of the college, after which lie ex
pressed his willingness to give $500 if
everything proved satisfactory.
At 11:30 the soliciting committee was
selected and the meeting adjourned.
It has been suggested by some of the
business men that the Commercial club
take the matter up, and appoint a com
mittee of competent persons to be sent
to Philomath to acquaint themselves
with the institution, and to find out
how much of an equipment the college
can bring here.
Instruct Directors for 10th Grade.
Ten people 8 men and 2 women
attended the school meeting Monday
afternoon in the A.O.U.W. hall.Though
few in number, the meeting was inter
esting and profitable. Each one present
declared himself or herself heartily in
favor of having a 10th grade taught in
the Hood River school, and to this end a
motion carried unanimously that the
school board be instructed to establish
the 9th and 10th grades. On a motion
by Mr. Hershiier, the board of directors
were authorized to employ some one to
canvas the town and the adjoining dis
tricts to ascertain how many students
could be found who would attend the
town school provided the 10th grade

acted as clerk pro tern.
On motion of Director Dumble, the
chair was instructed to appoint and
pay a competent person to ascertain the
number of students who would take ad
vantage of 10th grs.de work if taught.
The tuition for outside students was
placed at $2 a month.
E. L. Rood being the only hidder.was

New School District at Mount Hood.
A new school district has been created
in the Mount Hood settlement outof the
south part of district No. 6. The new
district will be numbered l(i, and was
set apart because of the great distance
of the petitioners from the present
school house. District No.6 was drawing
money on about 80 children, and Tvill
lose ten ol these witli tire new district.
F. S. Gribble has been elected clerk.
By tho formation of this district there
are now within Hood River Valley prop
er 11 school districts. This is a point to
be remembered in recounting the in
ducements Hood River lias to offer to
intended settlers. The valley is well
supplied with excellent graded schools,
which Superintendent Gilbert declares
are the best in Wasco county.
P. D. Hinrichs has completed taking
the school census of Barrett district. He
found 203 children of school age. Two
years ago, the district had 126; one
year ago, 187. This is a very healthy
growth, and gives the district a ratingof
second class, the only district outside of
The Dalles and Hood River that has
over two hundred children of school age.
The regular teachers' examination
will be held in The Dalles, August 12,13
and 14. The board of examiners will
consist of County Superintendent C. L.
Gilbert, Deputy County Superintendent
J.T. Neff and Professor C. D.Tliompson.
