mer a cutting of clover. He expwts to

The report was current among the
apple shippers Monday that the rail
roads bad increased the freight rate on
apples between Hood River and New
York to $1.60 a hundred in carload lots.
The rate last year was $1. General
Freight Agent Miller had wired Agent
J. T. Kinnaird that the rate this year
would be $1.60. Manager Shepard
could hardly believe this even when he
saw the wire from Portland.
Agent Kinnaird informed the Glacier
that the freight rate matter 'was in an
unsettled condition, and by Tuesday he
was able to give out the information
that the old rate of $1 a hundred would
continue in force this year.
Had the rate remained as first sent
out by Mr. Miller it would have meant
an additional cost of 26 cents a box in
getting Hood River apples to the New
York markets. As the bulk of this
years crop iB sold, this expense would
have fallen upon the apple shippers.
The loss to them would have amounted
to thousands of dollars.
The railroads have granted a reduc
tion in freight rates to California, but
this is offset by a similar reduction from
New York statu. York state Baldwins
are rushing into the California markets,
where the apple crop this year shows a
shortage of 76 per cent, on a 00 cent
a hundred rate. The rate from Port
land to Los Angeles is 69 cents.
Baldwin apples are selling in the
New York markets, says Manager
Shepard of the Hood River Applegrow
ers' union, at $1.26 a barrel. This is
42 cents a box. If they can land them
in I .os Angeles for an additional 29
cents they could be sold at a prolit for
72 cents a box. Hood River Baldwins
intended for the California market have
sold for $1 a box.
The Davidson Fruit Co. is loading a
car of Ben Davis for the China markets
and is paying the growers 80 cents a
box for the apples. A car of Winter
Nellis pears returned the growers 90
cents a hoi;

A visit to the manufacturing district

everything all hustle and business there.
Twenty five men with teams are busy
rading for the new O. R. & N. freight
epot at the foot of Irving street, and a

The warehouse for the mill is already
under roof, and the first story and base
ment of the mill completed. Two more
Btorlei of 14 feet each are to be added
to the mill, making it from the north
side a four-story structure. The work
is of a substantial order, everything be
ing done under the direct supervision of
J. P. Aplin, the manager of the mill.
G. J. Gessling, secretary for the mill
ing company, informs tho Glacier that
his company is constructing the mill so
that the capacity may be increased to
200 or 250 barrels a day with the addi
tion of extra rollers. They expect to
begin with a 100-barrel capacity.
John P. Aplin, who is to be manager
of the Hood River Milling Co., is higldy
spoken of all over the state regarding
his capabilities as a first-class and thor
