The board of directors of the Hood
River Apple Growers' union believe
there is much in a name. They re
cently turned down an offer of $2.25 for
their apples because the buyer was to
put on a label of bis own. This is carry
ing consistency beyond the dollar mark.
The business men of Hood River de
mand fire protection. The recent fire
has brought us face to face with the 1
danger of having the city wiped out at
any time. It is not possible at this
time for the city to put in a water sys
tem of its own, owing to the limitations
of the city charter, yet arrangements
can be made for temporary fire protec
tion at least. The water company now
furnishing water for domestic purposes
will present a proposition at the next
meeting of the council, it is understood,
for fire protection. The proposition
should be accepted if at ail reasonable.
If not, then something else should be
done. Water can be be secured either
from Joseph Wilson's reservoir or C. R.
Bone's irrigation ditch. In any event,
steps ought to be taken at once to af
ford permanent or temporary rele f.
The Chicago Fruit and Produce News
expresses the apple situation-Jn the Kant
There is but one way to look at the
present apple situation and that is just
as it is. New York State alone can
supply the entire country with apples
when she has a good crop, and there is
very reason to believe the crop will
eouai that of J two.
The apples are on the trees. There
they are worth nothing to the growers
and the experience of tho past two
years shows that they were worth less
than nothing to the buyers. At a price
the apples can be handled, and the
growers might as well, right now, make
up their minds that they must take less
than dollar a barrel for the fruit and
it will do some good. If held above that,
the growers will be forced to repeat their
experience ot ihwh, ana sell the apples,
after losing the shrinkage, for about 60
cents a barrel. The best way Is to sell
the fruit in the orchards at a price at
