THUKSDAY, FEBRUARY ,25 1904.
The irrigation proposition is progress
ing nicely. There are two committees
at work. One, with headquarters at N.
C. Kvans' office, taking subscriptions for
stock, and the other, consisting of Les
lie Duller, N. C. Evans and H. F. Dav
idson is arranging loans fur those who
need it. Nearly 1300 shares of $30 each
have already been subscribed for and
subscriptions are being made quite rap
idly. There is no doubt now but there
will be a sufficient amountof stock taken
to consummate the dtal. Those who
wish to subscribe for stock should go to
the office of N. C. Evans, and those who
have subscribed and wish to arrange
f jr money to pay for same, should call
at the bank or at the Davidson Fruit
Co's. office. It is hoped'.the farmers
will come in as quickly as possible so as
to enable the work to be commenced on
the ditch at the earliest possible mo
. The tecond number of Vol. I of the
new series of University of Oregon but
letins is from the pen of Professor Irving
M. Glen of the department of English
language and early English literature at
the university, and consists of two stud'
les in Anglo-Saxon poetry. The first is
an outline of the story of Beowolf, beau
tifully told, and worthy preservation as
a literary masterpiece.
The Ozark Apple Boom.
The splendid work being done by
the immigration department of fhe
'Frisco system is bavins; its effect
on the entire Ozark section
Alone the Bpringtiulu- Memphis line or
the old Kansas City, Fort Scott & Bir
mingham road, values have increased
during the past year fully 20 per cent
where orchard lands went Degging lot
buyers a few years ago today but few
snaps can be found, commercial fruit
growing occupying the attention of
practically every land owner.
Laclede county at present seems to be
the busiest point on the line. Near
Lebanon, the Frisco Orchard Co. is
pushing its project with vigor.Altogeth
er 20,000 trees are now set,2,600of which
will bear the coming fall. The com
pany expects a crop of 7,500 to 10,000
bbls. In all this company has 5,100
acres through which a spur of the Fris
co reaches the heart of the tract, thus
solving the problem of hauling. The
plans of the company call for packing
sheds and a loading station in the cen
ter of the large property. The main
planting will be of the Hen Davis, with
Gano, Jonathan, Grimes Golden, and
Payne's Keeper making up the list of
varieties w hich will be grown.
The Frisco Orchard Co. will be one of
the greatest advertisements for the
Ozark regions ever attempted. The
plans are conservative and yet are large.
Eventually the company will have over
5,000 acres in one great apple orchard.
When completed it will be one of the
greatest sights in the Middle West and
will make Laclede county famous. It
will lie the largest apple orchard in the
world in every sense of the term and
will represent an investment of over $1,
000,000. Already fruit growers in all
"parts of tiie country are watching its
The development of this mammoth
orchard has called for careful manage
ment. Instead of being made a sinkhole
for the company's capital from the out
set everv economy has been followed
out even in the breaking of the land
and clearing of timber. This fall over
'100 cars of wood were cut and shipped
to the nearby cities at a tine proht. Keg
ular farming will be carried on method-
icallv while the orchard is being planted
so that the operating expenses will be
kept at a minimum. This year the or
hard of 1,000 trees is expected to bear a
fine crop. An additional peach orch
ard of 2,500 trees is being planted. The
peach crop will of course, be a side line,
together with other products ol the farm
all helping in the plan to keep down
operating ex pen ceo until the apple or
chards are in full bearing.
When one stops to figure whata 5,000
acre apple orchard means the bigness of
the thing then becomes apparent. Paper
estimates ol crops and possible crops.
however, must usually be discounted
by half, hence it is useless to even put
down guesses at what the orchard can
do when it is in full bearing. On
basis of 00 trees to the acre there would
be a quarter of a million trees and on
the lowest average of a barrel to the
tree there would be 250,000 bbls in
crop. Such a crop would fill 60 trains
of 10 cars each. But that is when the
whole orchard bears. If the company is
successful in bringing halt this acreage
into bearing on a commercial scale, and
there seems no reason why it cannot
between now and 1908, the orchard will
even then be the biggest fruit propo
sition in the world owned and operated
by one management.
The rrisco orchard, however, in not
the only large commercial orcharding
company on the line of the rort Scott &
Memphis road. Near Marshfield a To-
peka, Kas., company has bought 2,000
acres. Already the company has put in
an investment around (50,000, having
built 37 houses for settlers and those
who will be engaged in caring for the or
chard. Where the Frisco people have
put everything into trees and clearing
up the property, the lopeka company
has taken the other side and is building
a veritable village at the outset. It is
probable that stockholders of the Topoka
company will personally see to the de
velopment of the orchard. The Hasel
tine orchard of 1,000 acres is another
Scattered along for 60 miles, northeast
of Springfield may be found scores of
orchards varying from 20 to 1(10 acres
each. From the car window the trav
eler grows tired when he attempts to
keep tally of the many new orchard
within view of the train. Back from
the right of way for several miles choice
locations are being covered by small or
chards, the general run being of 20 to 50
acres each. Practically every station
shows an orchard here and there, nenti
nets as it were of what is to be found
back in the country.
A close census of the acreage already
in apple and being set this winter would
no doubt surprise even the best posted.
When all of these orchards come into
bearing, the Frisco can well afford to
adopt the apple as a trademark and call
this division at least "The Big Red Ap
Unless all signs fail, within the coming
five years this section of the Ozarks with
Springfield as its western boundary, will
becom world famous. During the fall
and winter whole train loads of apple
will go out just as train load of wheat
and corn come out of Kansas. The cold
storage houses at St. Louis, Kansas
City and Springfield will hold but a por
tion of the crop, la the line of devel
opment as it is going on today there will
he large storage houses located rignt in
the heart of the main producing sec
tions. There is a great future before
the Ozarks and the "Big Red Apple" is
the key note.
FAMES BDY IBB DM
The H'Md River farmers have ac
cepted the offer of the Valley Improve
ment Co. for the purchase of the big ir
rigating ditch on the West Side. If
any one of the 300 men who filled the
opera house at last Saturday's mass
meeting had any Intention of opposing
this move when he entered tbe hall,
be was convinced the proposition was
all right by the time the vote was
taken, for not a dissenting voice was
heard as Chairman Jayne put the
After the committee made its report
wltb Its recommendations, about an
hour was taken up with explanations
on certain points In tbe plan outlined.
II. F. Davidson and N. C. Evans an
swered each question as it came up.
and bv the time tbe final vote was
c tiled for there was a clear understand
ing at least as to the general principles
along which the whole scheme was to
be worked out to a successful end.
The plan whereby the farmers are to
become complete owners of the ditch Is
outlined in the committee's report, as
We, your committee, beg leave to
make, the following report:
We find that the indebtedness of the
Valley Improvement Co. to be, on
on lower plant $30,642 93
Cost of upper plant 3,550 00
Original stock issued 29,400 00
Total $63,652 93
We have secured a 10-dayw' option on
24,000 par value of this stock, and all
debts outstanding to be paid, for $40,
000; the rent of the outstanding stock
at 30c on the dollar (273 shares) will
cost fl, 638 total cost, $47,638.
We would recommend that the op
lion be taken and supplementary arti-
les of incorporation be tiled, placing
value of each share of stock at $30; sell
stock to land owners only; said land
owner signing contract, which describes
lands to be covered by such stock as a
perpetual irrigation right; said contract
to be placed on record. All mainte
nance and operating expenses and in
terest on company debt to be pai'l pro
rata, according to tne number ot inches
of water used by each stockholder each
year; no water to be sold to irrigate any
and not covered by contract on wnicn
stock is held, except all cash renters
can buy water at $5 per inch until pres
ent lease expires, after which no water
will be sold to irritate said land until
owner has purchased slock and signed
contract covering said land. Ail sucu
renters to pay In advance for all water
used. Willi casn or note witu approved
security; provided that owner of leased
land can take stock and sign contract
at any time, then renter would pay
pro rata for his water, we nnd that
and owners can secure from tne stale
of Oregon on first mortgage money
with which to take the stock they may
want at 6 per cent Interest.
Bv this plan eacli person taxes a
share of stock for each acre of land to
be irrigated as a perpetual water right
he then buys what water he may want
each season for above-named land, and
pays therefor the pro rata price for
maintenance and operating expenses
and interest, If any there I, tr that
season. E. N. BENSON,
G. D. WOODWOUTII,
N. C. EVANS.
This option made uy 'he V.iHey Im
provement Co. expires iu (i o'ciock Fri
day night of this week. That it will
be accepted Is settled, and as explained
by Mr. Davidson, the farmers are al
lowed 60 days In which to raise the
money, governor Uhamberiain wits
seen In Portland last week by members
of the committee, and be assured them
the state would be glad to loan Hood
River farmers money from the school
fund at 6 per cent. This will make it
easy for those who lack the ready cash.
It Is the intention of the promoters
of this plan in purchasing the ditch to
have tbe plant forever free from debt.
All obligations, if any, will be upon the
lands on which the water is used, thus
making' it absolutely Impossible for
any speculators to ever secure a lever
on Hood River fanners.
It will require about $15,000 to put
the ditch iu shape to convey 2,500
inches of water. This, In addition to
original cost, means a total outlay of
$60,000, representing 2,000 shares of
stock. As soon as a mnjority of the
stock la subscribed, there will be a
meeting of the stckh'ldeis. organiza
tion and the election of a hoard of di
rectors with power to transact business.
Whenever the slock is all taken and
more inches of water are needed, there
will be a recapitalization, and event
ually th whole f the West Side can
be Included In the nnn-divldend pay
ing corporation. The cost of the water
each year will depend solely upon the
expenses of the ditth. It has beeu fig
ured out that wnter this year should
cost the farmers, Including interest on
mortgages, not over $3.50 an inch. To
those able to put op the $30 an acre,
their water will cost, says Mr. David
son, probably not over $1.60 an Inch.
