The Glacier is in receipt of the boll
day edition oi the Farm and Home,
published at North Yakima, Wash., by
Mr. and Mrs. Legh Freeman. The
number is profusely illuntrated. Legh
Freeiimii, the senior editor, given
' skelches of his life in the wild West
during the past 50 odd yean. He tellx
of Home marvelous escapes in encouut
era with the Indians. A picture of old
Jim Bridger Is given along with a tio
'graphical sketch of this noted frontiers
niaii. The senior editor of tbe
Glacier knew Bridger and traveled
with him in the same train from Fort
Reno to the crossiugof the Yellowstone
In 18G6. Bridger was a celebrated liar.
No one In the train ever believed a
word of the yarns he could spin for
hours about his battles with the In
dians and wild beasts. Freeman seems
to be a great admirer of Bridger, so
much so that some of the Incidents of
his own life as related by himself sound
like tbe stories Bridger used to tell.
The writer met Freeman in 1868, at
Green River City, In the tent office of
the Frontier Index.
E. H. Shepard and G. J.. Gessling of
the Fruit Growers' union did tome -effective
work among the railroad people
during the association meeting at Port
land last week. They made such a show
ing to the railroad people that they
agreed to give the fruit shippers a straw
berry special out of Hood River during
the height of the season, running it on
passenger train time, the shippers to
furnish the railroad company with an
estimate of the number of cars in the
morning and they will start a light train
out of Portland with just enough care
so that the strawberries will complete
the train. This was Mr. Gessling's sug
gestion, and after the railroad people
had it under consideration for a day,
they came to the conclusion that this
would be the best solution of the diffi
culty. Hood River was fittingly honored by
the selection of Hon. E. L. Smith for
president of the Northwest Fruit Grow
ers' association. It is fair to say that no
man in the Northwest has more practi
cal knowledge of fruit culture, and for a
presiding officer no. better selection
could be made by any organization.
In consideration of the fact that the
taxpayers of the Frank ton part of road
district No. 3 are already in for 49 mills
of a tax 27 mills state and county and
22 school tax they can hardly be blam
ed for not voting an additional 10 mills
for road purposes.
The article on the American League
of Civic Improvement was furnished by
A. W. Onthank. It contains useful
hints for Hood River, where an organi
sation of this nature could do much

The American Improvement League.
The American League of civic im
provement is an organization founded in
response to a popular demand. The
fmblication of articles on town and vil
age improvement in the leading maga
zines had brought to their editors a
flood of inquiries concerning the ways
and means of public improvement ef
fort. The urgent need of a central or
ganization to serve as a bureau of infor
mation and as a unifying force led to
the formation of the National League
of improvement associations at a conven
tion held at Springfield, Ohio, October,
The response to the efforts of this pio
neer organization encouraged another
significant advance the expansion of
the original body into the American
League for civic improvement, at the
first regular convention in Buffalo, in
August, 1901. Probably the most nota
ble incident of that convention was the
proposal that the Louisiana Purchase
exposition include a "model city" ex
hibit. Within 1(1 months after the organi
zation of the league the increased appli
cations for suggestions and literature in
the line of village improvement work
made netssarya second enlargement of
the plan of work. Moreover, the work
had become so extensive that it became
necessary to divide it into sections, the
scope and character of which may be
seen from the folluwing: Libraries and
museums, municipal art, municipal re
form, parks, public nuisances, rural im
provement, streets, sanitation, village
improvement. Others are provided for
as needed, and each is placed under the
direction of a representative ad
visory council, so that each local organ
ization may have the benefit of the
knowledge and experience of all the
others, an important function of the cen
tral organization being to supplement
and assist the efforts of existing local so
cieties, and to encourage the formation
of others. The league offers to furnish
lectures, programmes for meetings and
study material, printed matter for ed
ucational purposes, reference to sources
ot intormation, and plans for organiza
Through the league anv society or in
dividual can secure any book on civic
improvement, and valuable leaflets.
pamphlets, and book-lists are issued to
the members. Local societies are en
titled to all the benefits of membership
on the payment of two dollars.
The good work is spreading all over
the United States, improvement socie
ties have beeu formed in many towns
and marked progress has been made, to
the advantage in every wav of the citi
zens. Why cannot Hood ftiver share in
the benefit's of such work?
Frankton Turns Down the Road Tax.
Frankton, Jan. 1, 1904. Editor Gla
cier: About 75 or 80 taxpayers and oth
ers in road district No. 3, 'met at the
school house today to consider the mat
ter of voting a special road tax. An ef
fort to vote a 10 mill tax was made some
time ago but failed, and this meetiug
was called to reoH' the question.
Supervisor Wood worth called the
meeting to order about 1:30, and the
writer was called to act as secretary of
the meeting. The petition and call for
the meetin was read, as was also sec
tions 74, 75 and 77 of the Oregon road
laws governing the voting for special
road taxes, collecting the same and the
manner of handling the fund and do
ing the ork on the road. Then after
come kii nothing on the part of the cit
izens, a motion that we vote a tax war
made by 8. D. Garner, and the fun be
pan. It was amusing, yet provoking to
see a stoat, hearty-looking neighbor,
having a family of a wife and baby.only,
to support, and both of them small and
casv to keep, jump op and with tears in
Ids voice declare pathetically that he
was "being taxed and taxed until I can't
pay it and if this 10-mill tax is levied
my place will be sold for taxes." The
10 mill tax would have mulched him to
the extent of $3.30, or two days' work.
Anotln r gentleman, evidently as ver
dant as his name implies, who objected
that he was "not in favor of making a
road to a beer garden nor for Frank
Davenport to wear out hauling big loads
of lumber over." The verdancy of the
gentleman is apparent when it is known
that there is no beer garden anywhere in
the district and so tar as the writer has
been able to ascertain, there is none in
contemplation. And further, if the pro
posed tax had been levied it would have
squeezed this verdant gentleman to the
tune ot fl.zo, while rrank Davenport,
because of his mills, flume, etc., would
haveiiad to pavaboutfl25 00, Menominee
Lumber Co., ii), the O. R. & N., about
$300 or $400, while if our old methods
are practiced we will secure little or no
assistance from these three sources. It
was suggested that the special tax be
divided between the dinerent roads in
the district, or all of it put on some oth
er than the state road, but it was of no
avail, the spirit of nonprogreesivenes
seemed to dominate in the meeting, and
although our verdant friend wrathfulh
denied the soft impeachmant when ii
was unthoughtedly and vaguely intimat
ed that those opposed to the tax were
unprogressive. The. vote was about 10
for and 50 or 60 against voting the tax,
and road district No. 3 goes on, record a
against good roads, as being nonpro
gressive, in road matters at least ; clios-
ing rather to use the siwash trails our
verdant friend mentioned as having to
be UBed by himself or others, than to
dig up from 50c to f 5 each to start in a
substantial manner the good roads
movement in our district. U. N. K.
Annual Meeting Apple Growers' Union.
The annual meeting of the Hood
River Apple Growers' union kept the
memoers busy last Saturday irom II o'
clock in the morning until 3 in the after
noon. While there was some sharp dif
ferences of opinion as to methods of
union operations, yet there was a gen
eral teeung that the majority should
rule, and that by all means the union
must be supported. At the close of the
meeting. E. L. Smith delivered a short
but able speech admonishing the apple
growers to stand i y the union. "If we
don't," he continued, "the other fellows
will pick our bones clean. The future
success of the apple business in Hood
River depends on the success of this
apple growers' union."
A. I. Mason, president of the board
ot directors, presided. Mr. Mason read
a short address, including! a list of rec
ommendations prepared bv the direct
ors. Those of the recommendations ac
cepted by the union and made a part of
the Dy-iaws are:
1. The annual meeting of the nnion
shall be held the first Saturday in April.
2. The board of directors shall not
be elected in full each year, at least two
ot tnem holding over.
3. Thisorganization,through its board
of directors, shall have the exclusive and
unqualified power "to market all apples
grown by any of its members. A con
tract between each individual and the
board of directors will be required.
4. The manager of the union will be
placed on a Hat salary.
5. No union label shall be placed on
an apple box, except by the manager of
the warehouse, just before shipping.
6. Each packer will be held respon
sible for his own work by a system of
fines. No fruit will be received unless
put up by a packer employed by the
union. ,
7. The union will hare no packing
house foreman, except those employed
by the union.
8. The 3 and 4 tier pack is to be
discontinued, and the diagonal pack en
couraged where possible.
li. Apple box material must be bet
ter than that furnished last year.
16. Co-operation with the Hood River
Fruit Growers' union is looked upon
as worthy of consideration.
When the 3d resolution came tip for
adoption it aroused a spirited debate.
C. II. Sproat was very much opposed to
such a ruling, declaring it took the con
trol of the orchards out of the owner's
hands. B. R. Tucker opposed the mea
sure. b!V. bherneb supported it, de
claring he lost the difference between
fi.zo and Hoc a box for his lialdwins be
cause some of the union members re
fused to help fill a car when the direc
tors considered it best to ship.
It remained for Mr. Mason to close
the argument and turn the tide in the
motion's favor. The directors, in their
experience of the past season, found it
necessary to set the time when certain
varieties of apples should be shipped.
They were better able to do this than
the individual grower, because reports
are received by the manager by mail
and telegraph as to market conditions in
all parts of the world. Furthermore,
to insure the union an honorable rating
in the commercial world, the directors
must be in a position to deliver the
goods when they contract with a dealer
for the sale of a carload of apples.
The election of a b ani of directors re
sulted as follows: A I Ma-on. Chris
Dethman. F O Church. O K Castner
and BR Tucker. The firt three were
On motion of G R Castner, the state
board of horticulture will be asked to
secure the services of a government ex
perimenter to gather data on the work
of the codlin moth at Hood River.

Council and Mayor Play Sec-Saw.
Things were frigid at Monday night's
council meeting. Once in a while a lit
tle wave of humor swept in and the
temperaturo rose, only to drop again to
freezing. It might have been funny for
onlookers had there been something
better than wet wood for the fire. The
electric light plug hud burned out, and
some tallow candles and one lantern
furnished the light, l'robably, after
they are broke in, there will be shining
lights among the new councilmen to
make it unnecessary to resort to candles.
The trouble was all over the naming
of a marshal. Mayor Coon's appoint
ment of D.J. Treiber, the present in
cumbent of the office, received but one
confirming vote, that of Kd Mayes. The
matter went over until next "meeting,
with Treiber still marshal.
There was a full attendance of the
count-il Mayor Coon, Councilmen Bui
