Following is the address delivered by
Hon. E. L. Smith at the meeting of the
Oregon JAvelopment league )n 1'ortianu
s this weak:
' Ijr. lliomM v RkhanlHon, Purtlund,
(f)re.Der Hir: I am in receipt of your
'valued favor requesting information how
a "tenderfoot" or new comer shoulil
proceed to grow a cuiu,marcitU otuliarj
In Oregon. You sijtjost-' that I'rritO
such a letter as I would Jto some dear
friend in Iowa, Illinois, or some distant
state. Having been alsent from these
distant states nearly half a century, my
friends are tolerably scattering there,
and I cannot recall oim whom I think
would be interested in fmit growing
here ; so I take the liberty of addressing
addressing this hotter to yourself.
I hasten to express my gratification
at the commendable interest you are
evincing in the horticulture of (Oregon.
The infusion of new blood wjll undoubt
edly result in great benefit to this im
portant industry. I assume (hat you
desire to grow a commercial orchard,
and I congratulate you thst .you have
chosen the (tale of Oregon for the field
of your labors ; for uothipg. Is mbr im
portant to tha fruit grower than ade
quate transportation facilities by' sea
and by land,, and in f hat other locality
can half the population of the world be
reached more readily tlutn frqm Oregon?
A survey of this state by' the board of
horticulture discloses Mto JaO-Uiat more
than 90 per cent pf land adapted for
fruit growing kiuucupiad'Jur.LUt pur
pose. In a brief letter I can only suggest
outlines of how to grow an orchard ; de
tails cannot be supplied. In selecting
your location hug closely lines of trans
portation and your position pill. be en-1
viable in proportion to uie pumuer 01
markets you can reach .In' ,tlie aliorUytt

In choosing a tract of land to plant,
you will be governed largely by local
conditions. 1 name some of the them.
Immunity from spring frosts, ample wa
ter and drainage, a proper amount of
sunshine and moisture, and a proper
temperature; soil to be preferred, a
deep, clay loam. Avoid hollows in the
lower levels ami see that the soil is fair
ly rich in those mineral suits that enter
into plant iiic! .fruit ,sr(jwth.' . J'laut
none but No.l nursery trees from near
est nursery'.' ! cannot stop to' consider
wanting, cultivation, etc.. Xou, will do
well to consult the most successful or
charding In your vicinity for necessary
details, and tljere are eaceljcnt manuals
that you will also dp well to read. J load
your trees low, f.r you can prune and
spray to better advantage, and It exists
money to use a step ladder ,at picking
time. Select your varieties to suit not
your own taste but the taste of the mar
kets and those varieties adapted to
your locality.. Apples vary greatly in
flavor sise and color' In different locali
ties. Diamine (he orchards about you
and ascertain what kinds grow best and
give best results. If the loctlity you
examine prodiices only common grades,
move on to one that produces the best.
I again emphacise . the point, be
careful as to varieties, for in this age
of rapidly mujflpfylng orchards there Is
safety only n the production of fruits of
the highest excellence. 1 b not ' plant
many varle ties nor large blocks
of a single variety, for "Nature abhors

Of course you will want to knqw about

In other sections the estimates are leas
than this. Land varies so greatly " in

on investment for land, taxes, ete." '
It is impossible to even approximate
the returns from growing orchards, the;

have known orahards the sixth year
to pay all expenses up to date, and have
known others at ten years to
return from to 1500 per acre.
and are not to be considered in estimat
ing profits. I am, however, prepared to
maintain that when an orchard w fairly
in good bearijig, apples can be cultivat
ed, thinned, picked, papejr-wrapped,
hauled to station if not more than ten
miles distant and a fair road, ibot paid
for, all for 50 eenU a box, and that So. 1
winter apples will sell tor not less than
one dollar per box for a series of years.
In 18(10 there ' were growing m the
United States 201, 7tM,7tft apple trees:in
Oregon 2,M2o,t8, since increased to
over 3,000,000 trees. Will qot cjver pro
duction ruin the markets? Yes, possi
bly in some years, for common grades ;
never for the fancy product. Let us
discuss tut a moment the effect of the
enormous production of apples in recent
years has had upon the market. C. C.
Bell, for many years a shipper of fruits,
in the current number ul "Oachard
Fruits" furnishes a statement of the
purchasing power of a barrel of apples
from 1870 to KKtf, and I abstract briefly :
A barrel of aisles in 1870 paid for 39
pounds of wheat, iu J8S0 for 72 pounds
and iu 1003 for 120 pounds.
In 1870 it paid for 7, pounds of white
sugar, in 1903, for 224 pounds.
In 1870 it paid for HjJ pounds of nails
and in 1008, for 40 pounds.
In 1870 it paid for 1 yards of calico,
ib. .taw lor zi yarns.
in im a required Z4 barrels of ap
ples iq buy a harvester in JWM, ho bar
rels bought a better machine; Thirty'
seven years asro the writer bouaut in
Salem, Oregon, the finest Wihesaps he
had ever seen for 25 cents a box. Last
year like fruit would have brought five
times as much. In 1003 carloads of ap
ples from Hood River's fancy fruit crop
were soiu to retailers in new xora uity
at $3.50 to $4 per box, of 45 pounds of
fruit, the highest price I have ever
known paid for apples in such quantities.
Hut why inultiply.instances? A great de
mand for American apples has gone Bp
in Europe, and our exports from Atlan
tic ports in 1103-4 exceeded 3,300,000
pounds, told storage, tapid transit, and
added to increased consumption of ap
ples everywhere have made a demand
ahead of increased ' produntion for our
fancy fruit. The dilliculty lies in dis
posing of our common grades, but there
is encouragement even there.
.Our own citizen, Hon. Hairy B.Miller,
consul Niu Chang, China, writes, "If
the fnferrior grades of the proper ship
ping varieties of apples grown pn the
Pacific coast could be sent to China for
the Chinese trade at a low cost, 1 am
convinced that an extensive and perma
nent market can he created.t lie also
adds in the same communication that
the .Russians are great lovers of apples.
May we not expect, tlicn, that when the
oriental freight tariffs become a little
lower, when the Kussian bear returns
from his outing in Manchuria, (and he
has already headed for home), and when
conditions have become settled, that pur
countless neighbors along the eastern
coast ttf Asia will consume ever increas
ing quantities of our common fruits?
In concluding these lengthened pages
may I say to you in growing your or
chard there will come to you recom
pense other than dollars and cents, a
recompense of wealth and added years,
a fueling that you have msstered every
S'lverno condition ; and when your ..trees
that you have grown and loved are bur
dened with great harvests will you Dot
rejoice that you have been a factor in a
fruition so noble, so beautiful?

Congregational Monday School Picnic.
The annual picnic of the Congrega
tional Sunday scho'il, given last Friday,
was voted, by every one in attendance as
the most enjoyable of all the successful
picnics given by this popular Hunday
school. It was held iu a lieautiful Cot
tonwood grove on J. 11. Koberg's farm,
about a mile east of town. The child
ren hmnd it great sport to wade and
dabble in the water along the river beach.
The swings, too, were patronized all ditv
long by the yopiigsters. Too much
credit ' cannot be given the Sunday
school superintendent, A. O. Btaten,
and T. J.'Treiher, for their endeavors
to make the picnic a success. Each of
there gentlemen (unlinked teams and
with their farm wagons and carriages
carried the children to the grounds. Mr.
Htaten, with Pan! and Oils Troilier and
Willie Raker, put in the day Thursday
erecting tables and putting up swings,
and a tent. ' Mr. and Mrs. KobVrtr also
earned the gratitude of the picnickers
In furnishing lumber and granting the
uce of their kitchen and in many ways
showing true welcome. ' The children
were aiven ristht of fcav at the dinner
table and were sesved first. Bixty-eight
happy youngsters did full justice to the
many good tilings provided, cakes, pies,
lemonade and ice cream galore. Older
persons to the number of 40 were" served
ai in Huconii uinie.
The games were the great attractions
of the day. First came base ball, the
contestants being the Sunday school
bovs aaaiiiHt the men. The men's nine
consisted of Htaten, Hteiihauer, Heinh-
ner, Uessling, Onthank, Hurt, Treiber,
and, there being only eight men on the
ground, Mrs. II. r. Havidson kindly
consented to act as the ninth man ; but
it seemed to the reporter that she did
as much rooting for the juniors .' she
for her own side, Htaten was pitcher
and Btranahan catcher for the seniors.
Teddy Button Impartially umpired the
game, 17 to 3 In favor of the juniors,
proved that the men were hack uumbers
In playing the great American game
and the juniors didn't seem to be doing
their level bust. Riming those of, thy
senior nine who distinguished theni'
selves on this diamond field wereiiursh
and Onthank. Mrs. Jiavulson batted
ball and showed herself a good sprinter
tu second base, when unfortunately the
man at the bat was third man out, and
for this reason only she failed to make
a home run. Willie Baker was pitcher
for (he juniors and Harry Rood catcher;
lajth proving to be experts. Others of
the junior tune are as far as the writer
learned their names, were Paul and
Utia Treiber Elliot Htaten , and Merrill

nearest the stake. Out of a dozen con
testants, Mrs. 8. F. Blvthe lame the

A. I. Mason, president of the Apple
Growers' union, in answer to an inquiry
from the secretary of .tiie laturnational
Apple Packers' association, concerning
the applo prospects in Oregon and Hood
River, replied that in Ills opinion the
apple crop of Hood River would aipount
to 75,000 boxes, and that from what be
could .gather from ipfqrjnatiQn furnished

one is misleading. From what the state
