The Long Creek Light has been muf
fed out and now appears as the Monu
ment, Orant county, Enterprise.
The Rural Narthwest says it ii uni
versally admitted that the two most
important addrenies before the conven
tion of the Development leagne were
those ofE. L. Smith, president of the
state board of horticulture, and Dr
James Withycoinb of the Oregon experi
ment station. Doth addresses were
devoted to fruit and agricultural topics
The action of the water company in
giving; the patrons of this city better
service, will be appreciated, and it is
hoped the good work will go on. They
promise to put water on the hill in the
near future, and the sooner it is done
the better it will be for the health of
the hill residents, as well, as for the
prestige of the water company. I-et
the good work go on.
Chicago capitalists have filed with the
secretary of stato articles of incorpora
tion for the Mount Hood Electric Co.,
one of the purposes of which is the
construction of a tourist trolley car line
from Portland to the base of Mount
Hood. If such a road is ever construct
ed it would put an end to the stage line
business from Hood River to the moun
tain. The many complimentary remarks
from the press of the state on the elec
tion of the Hon. K. L. Smith to the
presidency of the Oregon Levelopment
lesgue, speaks well for the popularity
of the selection. Possibly no man is
more widely known throughout the
state than Mr. Smith. At an authority
on horticulture, he is recognised as one
of the most competent In the United
States. Possibly no man has a broader
knowledge of apple growing than Mr.
Smith. His selection as president of
the Oregon Development league is a
credit to Hood River.
Professor 8. B. Green, head of the de
partment of horticulture and forestry at
the state university of Minnesota, after
a tour of the Pacific Northwest, states
that the growers should be more cosmo
politan in there knowledge of fruitgrow
ing, that they should know what results
re obtained in the different localities,
to profit thereby. This it another point
In which Hood River orchardisti take
the lead. The fruit business in this val
ley has been intelligently studied and
progressive growers are profiting from
their research work. The professor com
pliments Hood River on the business
like methods of packing and shipping in
The action taken by the farmers Mon
day night at the Barrett school house
in taking the preliminary steps to se
cure water, shows a commendable en
terprise, and demonstrates that Hood
Rivet intends to keep up to date and
progressive. While the new ditch will
cost probably $100,000 If carried out on
the scale proposed, yet it will add fully
11,000,000 to the value of the hind that
will come under the ditch. Hood River
land is too valuable to be farmed for
crops without irrigation. It is the extra
ton of hay, crate of berries or box of
apples that makes the profit, and when
the crop can be doubled and in some
cases increased three-fold when prop
erly irrigated and cultivated, the argu
ment in favor of the new ditch, regard
less of the big undertaking, is conclus
ive. Summer months are considered to be
the dull season for all lines of business
but Hood River merchants say they
have noticed no decrease In their busi
ness the last two or three months. The
fact that the strawberry men did not
get the high prices of former years has
made no perceptible difference in the
commercial world. The farmers are all
hard at work with their crops. The se
who have apple orchards and clover
fields are sure of good returns this full
Movements In real estate are not num
erous Just now, but the men who make
a business of selling lands say there are
a great many inquiries coming in daily,
and a great many people are looking the
country over with the idea of buying
later in the fall. A large immigration
of home seekers is cx)iected from the
Eastern states after the crops are har
vested there. One thing that impresses
itself on a casual observer is the grow
ing of more vegetables and garden truck
by the Hood River farmers. This com
modity Is a scarce article in the White
Salmon country, and the farmers there
will have to learn that it pays to grow a
little more of this stuff than they have
use for in their own families. One man
who recently moved to the North side
of the Columbia said he had not been
there long long enough to grow garden
stuff of his own. and found his neigh
bors had but little and that even pota
toes were ham to get. J tns ts a wrong

country. But affairs are becoming bet

The Rural Northwest says: "There

recent convention in Portland which or
ganised the Oregon Development league
to tret a good pointer on how to get re

a chance to advertise- Hood Kiver and
they are advertising the fruit fair to 1ms

showed that the population and busi

the natural result ot the unceasing el

A preliminary meeting of farmers was
held at the Barrett school house Mon
day evening, and (tops were taken to
bond the district for water. The short
age of water in the district above the
Farmers' ditch is being felt more ami
more as new ground is cleared and
brought under cultivation, and the
movement towards bonding the district
that was talked of last winter culmin
ated in the meeting Monday night,
when 35 signed a petition to the county
The small ditch that has supplied the
older residents in the Crupper and Bar
rett districts for many rears carries
only about 400 inches of water, while
the present needs are In M v live times
as much. There is scarcely a farm llmt
is getting hull enough water, and m
some cases considerable cleared land is
lying idle. Koine of the new places can
not in improved lor lack ol water, and
the farmers above the Fanners' ditch
on the West Side realize that they must
put tn an irrigating ditch ol sulncient
size to supply future as well as' present
wants if they expect to get the proper
results from their land. .
The proposition is to bond the district
to be lienelilted, and the area proposed
is part of Dukes Valley and Udell on the
east side, and all of the district on the
west side of Hood Kiver not now sup
plied with water, it is estimated that
this district will cover 14.000 ucres, The
cost of a ditch largo enough to carry
siillicicnt water to supply this large
area is roughly estimated at 100,000.
It may cost considerably more, but will
probably not exceed $10 for each acre of
land benefitted.. Given 20 years to pay
fur it, the cost will not amount to $2 an
inch of water per yeur, with free water
at the end of 20 years.
There is no question but that irrigat
ing water is worth $100 an acre to the
land for any purpose, and there should
not be a dhsentmg voice in voting for
the new improvement. The fact Unit
the land in speculators' hands lying
idle will have to pay for the water,
whether it is used or not, is a point in
favor of the bonding scheme, and will
tend to force improvement among that
clafS of property owner,
The meeting . at the Barrett school
house was attended by about fifty prop
erty owners residing within a short dis
tance of the place of meeting. ', VV.

J. II. Shoemaker stated that the pro
posed district included 14,000 or 15,000
acres, which would be reduced 2,(HK) or
3,000 acres if the East Hide section
adjoining Hood Kiver did not want to
lie included tie thought the expense
of the ditch would not exceed 1 1 II an
acre, but he was satisfied to lmv $20 an
acre if necessary, and then would con
sider it a goon investment lor a perpet

F. U. Sberrieb stated that at a meet
ing of the directors of the Water Supply
Co. it was agreed to turn over their
stock at par to the new corporation if
the bonding proposition wvnt through,
which would amount to $1,000. The
stock was worth 25 per cent premium,
and he thought the offer a liberal one.
Their present right-of-way was valuable
as fur as it went, and would save the
new company considerable on that Item
alone. They were interested in the
new scheme, and would be glad to see
Mr, Castiier thought it would be a
good idea to include both the big ditches
now furnishing water on both the east
and west side, hut it was not the iiiten
tion to force the sale of either of the
ditches, but it would he left to those
companies to decide for themselves.

in glowing terms of the fruit prospectf
of Hood Kiver. He was particularly
struck with the fine condition of the
many young orchards that met his eye,

The Bellliowers sell from 60 to 90 cents,
says Mr. Radcliffe.

Should Know What Other Apple Men Do
Professor 8. B. Green of Minnesota,
who visited Hood River last week, vis
ited other sections of the Northwest, and
on his return to Portland gave out the
follow ing interview:
"It seem to me that in many sections
fruit growers suffer because of the lack
of business methods in packing and
shipping their fruit. Where I found
growers who were discouraged, it was
not localise they could not grow fruit,
but Is-cause they could not market it
"At Hood River the growers get bet
ter results because their methods are
more business like. Growers need to
make a study of this subject.
"1 have been surprised to learn how
little one section knows about the re
sults obtained in another section. It is
of great importance that information of
this t haracter should be scattered as
widely as possible. As an illustration,
I found in home sections too much tend
ency to plant varieties of apples like the
Ben Duvis.the Black lien Davis and the
Gaiio. While these varieties may still
find a ready market, they are discrimi
nated against in the Lantern market.
Even in Oregon these varieties, I am
told, are becoming unpopular. In some
parts of the state growers are beginning
to appreciate tliis,and are putting in bet
ter varieties. At the same time I found
localities where the growers snppose
these the best varieties and are putting
them in. A petter general knowledge
of the results of experience in this and
other lines would he of the utmost value
to the farmers and horticulturists of the
"The Irrigation of orchards interested
me. Jt seemed to me that as a rule
where water is abundant the growers
use too much of it, especially in the
case of young trees not yet bearing. In
many instances the wood would be firm
er and the trees would winter better if
they were not irrigated. Another thing
that should receive more attention is
the enforcement of inspection laws for
the purpose of excluding noxious in
sects and diseases. In some localities
there is great laxity in enforcing these
Ibwb. Such pests as the wooly aphis, or
root louse and the San Jose scale should
be kept out, for it is a heavy expense
to spray the trees every w. liter after
these petts have gained a foothold.
"One of the things which has im
pressed me is the fact that the 0. R. &
N. Co. is paying so much attention to
the education of the people along its
line. It is one of the lew roads, it not
the only one, that is doing any intelli
gent work toward developing the indus
tries in its territory."
