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 vogue here. 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 condition of affairs in an agricultural country. But affairs are becoming bet ter adjusted and a few years will And them as they should be. Can Give the State Pointers. The Rural Northwest says: "There was a chance for the delegates to the recent convention in Portland which or ganised the Oregon Development league to tret a good pointer on how to get re sults, the tlood Kiver folks were on hand, as they always are when there is a chance to advertise- Hood Kiver and they are advertising the fruit fair to 1ms held at that place this fall. These cards showed that the population and busi ness ol Hood Kiver lias doubled in the lakt 'our years. This increase has been the natural result ot the unceasing el forts on the part of the people of that that place to build up their resources and advertise their place, products and advantages. II every other commuiii itv had worked so hard and a intelligent ly as thellood Kiver community has done there would be twice as many people in Oregon that are now here, and Oregon, instead of being the least heard of state on the Pacific Count would be known throughout the United States us the get-there state. WILL BOND FOR WATER 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 eourt. 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. Angus was made chairman and D. E. Markham sucretiiry. Mr. Angus stated briefly the object of the meeting, and read a synopsis of the state irrigation law, as published in the Glacier March 24, 1004, Ho stated that he thought i: would be a good policy to Dono mo enure liood Kiver district providing the other water companies wished to come in and turn over their property for what it was worth, but that It would be left entirely with thu other companies to act. He wanted it distinctly understood that it was no stock-iohbing scheme, but all they wanted was water, and would bond a district outside of the territory covered by the present ditches if the rest of the valley were cntisned with what they had. 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 ual water right on the laud. 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 it succeed. 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. A petition to the county court that had been prepared, as the first formal ity to comply with the law, was rend. and iion being circulated received 30 signatures, us below. A committee consisting of Scott Doorman and 1'. li. Martin was appointed to circulate the petition among farmers who were not at the meeting, and it is expected that a majority ot the tanners to bo bene fitted will sign the petition, and it will he placed in the hands of the county court as soon as possible, in order to get a vote on the proposition this full.

Antelope Herald. Young Orchards Took Ills Eye. W. IU Itad.:liffe, assistant cashier of the bank of Wateonville, Cul., was in Hood River Inst week. Mr. Itadcliffe is on a tour of the Pacific Northwest, in cluding a trip to the Yellowstone Park, and as he travels along is looking over the fruit sections on the way. Watsonville is one of the famous ap ple sections of California. Mr. Kad cl ffe was formerly in the newspaper business at that place and talks intelli gently of the fruit industry in Cal ifornia. In reply to an inquiry as to what he thought of Hood Kiver afU-r driving through the valley, Mr. Hudcliffu spoke 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, and regarded them as model young orchards. This year in the Watsonville district the crop was injured by late frosts, and instead of the usual crop of 8,000 cars it will amount to about 2,000 cars, says Mr. Radcliffe The Yellow NewtowiiB and the Yellow Bellliowers are the standard varieties in Wateonville. There the growers are satisfied to re ceive 75 cents a box for their apples. The Bellliowers sell from 60 to 90 cents, says Mr. Radcliffe. That country has abotit the same area for fruit growing as has the Hood Kiver valley, almut 60,000 acres. About one quarter of this is now planted to apple trees. Mr. Riulcliffu stopped to view the RogUe River Country, where he says the crop will be light this year, the iruit Having been damaged by late storms. Me says a bail storm played iihvih: wiin tne iron mere mis spring the trees now presenting the appear ance of some one having stood off about a hundred yards and peppered them with an old muzzle loading shotgun. All Not Lovely With the Ferryman. The ferrvman has troubles of his own. Possibly the average passenger on the White f-alnion terry thinks Messrs. Dean and Pearson have a snap. With sail and gasoline power it looks easy enough to operate llie niiHiiiess. (.'per illing expenses seem small as the two men do all their own work, and the collection of 25 cent fares should prove a snap. Not so though. Mr. Dean gives it out that he has expended over a hundred dollars in repairing the boats in the last three weeks. The ferry owns two row bouts, two launches, six scows and six sails. Boats are perishable and require frequent repairs. The 25 cent fare is not always col lected. One night last week Andy Pearson was aroused from his sleep by three drunken loggers who wanted to cross the river. Pcareon rowed the drunks to the Washington side. The tare alter night is m) cents, but when the men reached the other side of the river, they gave Andy the merry ha, ha. and left him to row hack mad as a hornet. A few weeks ago, relates Mr. Dean, an Indian with his cayuse was rowed across, the river. He said he would pay when he returned. When he did so, I the river was rough and ditticult for crossing with the scow. Rut the ferry men landed the smash on the Oregon side of the river, and all they received for their trouble was the Under of an empty purse. Mr. Mean says be has worked dav and night since taking hold of the ferry, not having a single 8ondav he could call his own. His work during the summer has kept bun busy tsith day and night. But the night work he says they aim to cm out alter tins. ine county commissioners aim to discourage tne tqieration ot the ferry after nightfall, except in very urgent cases. na ttowland, Ironi wroni Mr. Dean secured the ferry, held a mail contract wiin uncle rani to carry the mail from Hood River to White Salmon for loOO a year. The mail now amounts to three and four sacks at a trip, more than one man can handle, and teams have to he hired to carry the mail to and from the landings to the pototlices, a distance of a mile at each end. This bill of expense exceeds the pay which the contract calls for, and the holder is doing the work each year at a dead loss. The contract, so Mr. Dean says, runs for five years more. What the expense of carrying the mail will be by that time can't U guessed at. 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 successfully. "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 FAIR 6 : 5 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 state. "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." Foreign Mission Meeting.
