HOOD RIVER GLACIER, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1904.
BIG DEAL BY
The Hood River Apple Growers union
sold, Tuesday morning, to Page & Son
nj Portland 30 cars of Hpitzenburg and
Yellow Newtown apples and four cars
of other varieties. The sale price has
been kept secret for business reasons by
the board of directors, but it is under
stood to be a fancy figure for the Spite
and Newtowns and" a remarkably good
price for the four cars of other varieties.
This is the largest apple deal ever
made in Hood Kiver. While the mem
bers of the board of directors and Man
ager Shepard have nothing to give out
for publication in the matter, they ex-pies-ed
theniH'lves to the (jlacier re
porter as being exceedingly well pleased
w ith the terms of the deal.
The union has recently disposed of
two ears of (iravensteins at prices rang
ing from 85 cents to $1 a box. Such
prices are considered good figures for
these apples. This about cleans up the
summer apples for Hood Kiver.
Hood Kiver sent out about four cars
of pears this summer. One car was
marketed in Chicago by Page & Son;
the union shipments amounted to about
one car, and something over a carload
went to Holmes' cannery in Portland.
The prices on pears ranged between 60
and Rr cents, the returns not being all
TO BUILD DOCK
AT HOOD RIVER
H. C. Campbell, manager of the Keg'
ulator Line, when in Hood Kiver Mon
day, informed the Glacier that his com
pany expects to have the new wharf boat
for ihe Hood Kiver dock in place by the
hm of next week. This will be good
news to the people of the town and
country who do business with the boat
The company figured first on putting
in a piling dock, but a wharfboat can be
shifted about to meet thedifferent stages
of water, and Mr. Campbell says during
the time ol high water tlie whartboat
will lie shifted to the summer landing
at the foot of First street, below the

ollice will be fixed up, where Norman
Yound, the Hood Kiver agent for the
Regulator Line, will be found at all
times to transact business with the
public. Telephone service will also be
supplied to the office, says Mr. Camp
This boat iH to be modeled after the
wharfboats at The Dalles and Lyle.

completed, will cost the company about
The Regulator company is also mak
ing $400 worth of improvements to the
dock at White Salmon. The increased
trade at that place is making a larger
warehouse necesary at that point, which
the company regards as the best town
along the river.
The wharfbooat was secured in Port
land, and workmen are now building
the warehouse on the same. VV hen com

To Start Live Stock Insurance.
Hood River, Or., Sept. 12. Editor
Glacier: 1 noticed in last week's Glacier
that number of valuable cows died re
cently in Frank ton and other districts.
It has been in my mind for a long tune
to start a live stock insurance association.
My plan would be for a number of
farmers who keep one or more cows to
organize an insurance company, have a
constitution and bylaws drawn up and
printed, incorporation papers legally
filed and three inspectors elected to
place a value on the cows. There should
also be a secretary and treasurer, and
then whenever a cow belonging to a
member of the association dies, an as
sessment will be levied and the owner
of the cow will have sufficient money to
replace the cow.
As it is now, a great many people lose
a cow and are unable to stand the ex
pense of buying another one.
1 nave talked with a good many larm-
era around Belmont, and all of them ex
press themselves as favoring the move
ment, and I want to announce through
the columns of the Glacier that a meet
ing to discuss the organization of such a
live stock Insurance association will be
held at the Frankton school house at
3 o'clock on the afternoon of Friday,
September 23. Those who are too busy
to be able to attend this meeting will
kindly mail me a postal card giving me
their opinion on the proposition.
Jet Kelimmt and frankton form a
district, Barrett and Crapper another,
and so on over the valley. Forty fann
ers would be sutficient to organize. The
assessments in such an organization
need not be more than II for each mem
ber. This would raise a total of $40
and enable any poor man to buy an
other cow. M. H. Nk-kklskn.
Corrects Emnoiis Report
When the steamer Spencer went
aground on the Sands alwve Rowena,
liiii July, the report was circulated that
Captain Spencer had asked aid from the
steamer liailey latzert and was refused.
lo correct tins report, 11. V. Campbell,
manager of the Regulator line, has fur
nished the Glacier copies of the follow
ing correspondence that passed between
the interested parties and the steam
boat inspectors at Portland:
Portland, July lti, 19l'4 Messrs. Ed
wards & Fuller. Local Insnectors Gen
tlemen : On Wednesday, July 13, while
(he steamer Spencer was lying near the
shore al Rowena slightly aground, a
line was run out to deep water and the
steamer Bailey Gatzert was hailed for
assistance, but after finding out what
was wanted, replied that they did not
have time. The wind was blowing very
moderately at the time, it being possi
ble for a small boat to be rowed with a
coil of 2-inch line and two men in it
with no trouble whatever. Hoping this
matter comes under your supervising,

this morning your letter and also copy
of letter of Dalles Transportation Co.,
by C. R. Spencer.
The Bteainer Cha-. RSpencer ground
ed on the morning of July 13, 19 4,
above Rowena, and the next evening, as
1 was going to The Dalles with the
steamer Bailey Gatzert, Charles Spencer
came out with a life-boat having a line
coiled in one end. He hailed me and
asked to have me give the Spencer
pull. I told him that the wind was too
strong, and with all my passengers and
freight on board, 1 did not consider
safe to get in that shoal water, but
would come back; so proceeded on to
Ihe Dalles. Alter arriving at Ihe
Dalles I met Caitaiii K. W. .Spencer and
told him about being hailed, and also
told him, as the water was so shoal so
far out from the Spencer, and tint the
(talzert w as such a poor backer in stioal
wa'er, and with the wind blowing, I did
not consider it safe that, evening. Ho
he told me that if I could do anj thing
for him the next morning he would be
very much pleased. I told him if the
wind w a not blowing too hard I would
doauvlhlngl could. Ihe next morn
ing 1 was going to give him a pull, as
the e was very little wind, but when we
got there he did not want a pull but
sent 17 of his crew down with us (thr. e

there was at The Dalles gauge 27 08 feet
and today 23.07 feet. As we came up

or od0 feet from the stern .of the Spancer.
We also had a passenger (or the Spencer

Mrs. Henderson is yet weak physically,

Editor Receives Fine Peaches.
The Glacier man lived in good luck
last week. Early Thursday morning,
Mrs. George P. Crowell came to the
office with a basketful of beautiful Early
Crawford peaches and a boquet of large
and handsome roses. The peaches and
roses were grown in her own yard in
this citv, and finer fruit or flowers would
be hard, to find.
Later in the day Jack Binns came in
with another sample of monster peaches.
The fruit was grown on his place on the
hillside of Mount Defiance. Each peach
weighed almost a pound, and he says
they grew without irrigation. The
flavor was very delicious.
Southern Oregon may grow more
peaches than Hood River, but it's
peaches to mistletoe that the flavor does
not surpass that of the Hood River
peaches. The crop here this year w as
fine in quality.
Anxious to Bond for Water.
J. II. Shoemaker is enthusiastic over
the movement begun in the Barrett and
Crapper districts to bond the commu
nity for an irrigating ditch.
"You see, we have to have water,"
said he to the Glacier man, "and by
bonding the district we get the water,
double the value and productive capac
ity of the land, and pay for it 20 years
from now from the increased earnings
of our farms made possible by the appli
cation of the water. There's the whole
thing in a nut shell, and you will find
the people of the district looking at the
proposition with the same understand
ing. "The movement is now well under
way ami there is no good reason why
our people should lose heart in the un
dertaking." Unitarians Enjoy Picnic.
The children of the Unitarian Sunday
school enjoyed a picnic under the beau
tiful orchard grove at Paradise farm
last Saturday. The older folks enjoyed
it, too, if the newspaper man, who was
lucky enough to be there, should judge
from the way those gathered about the
well-spread tables devoured the good
things before them with an appetising
A hundred or more were present, all
returning with the remark that they
