''In theO. R. & N. book called "Re

alwut the best. I would like to engage
in the fruit and chicken business. Does
your country offer a good opening for

probably think so.
Why The Band Wauled f50.
Hood River, Or., Oct. 10. Editor
'.ilacier :ln the issue of the Glacier
under date of October 6, 1004, appears
me statements, j. k. Kand reported
that the Hood River brass band wanted
50 for their services during tho after
noons and evenings of the fair. This
offer was refused." The statement
"This offer was refused," is correct, but
the first statement is misleading and
incorrect. The band did not ask the
50 for its services for three afternoons
and evenings, as such a small snm is in
no sense an adequate compensation for
otirviceB covering mien time. l lie hand
did agree to furnish this music for $50.
Let us consult mathematics to aid in
our explanation. Tho wages of the
band boys during the time for filling
this engagement would bo $81, This
amount of wages (bread and butter)
would be sacrificed by the members of
the band who are wage earners, for tho
purpose of placing this $50 into tho
treasury of the band in order to main
tain its organization. The difference
between the $81 in wages and the $50
to be received from the fair, or $31 the
band intended to donate to the fair.
The figures are based purely unon a
wage basis. As a matter of fact the
band would have been $31 to the good,
if the members had followed their sev.
eral vocations and turned their waves
into the band treasury, during the time
covered in playing for the fair. Citizens,
now lollows the cold facts. Any outside
band with the equipments of the Hood
River band, would have charged $200
for services coverine a period of thren
days; this is based on a professional
If the band had rendered this aervim
for the fair, the individual members
would have lost $81 in wages. 131 to the
treasury of the 'band, the difference
Between the amount of 150 to lie received
from the fair and the $81 in wages if
placed in the treasury of the band, or a
IVl&l OI fl 11.
J. E. Rand states in his report to the
Glacier. "This offer was refused."
Why, because It was too cheap to be
good? Why, hecause the band has
been Indolent In its practice in meeting
once and twice ouch week during all of
last winter and sunimor? Why, because
by consistency it has accumulated
nearly $000 worth of band property?
Why, because you had rather givo
this sum, more or less, to a Port
land orchestra for one night's service?
Tell ub why you refused. We want
to know, tho citizens want to know ; a
public fund is involved.
We make this explanation In order to
correct an idea that has gone out with
this report that the earnings of the
band goes into the pockets of the indi
vidual members: that we tried a graft,
but were arrested in our efforts by the
shrewdness of a business man. Citizens
we thank you for your past fidelity antl
support, and wo are still at the old
stand with choory faces to do business
on a scale of moral and financial con
sistency. C. D. NicKKLsiiN, W. A. Ihbnbero,

ringing of the starter's bell to the last
out in the final chapter. The visitors
played good ball and put up a stubbern
defense. The work of Mclnnis was a
feature of the gamu, but it was like
a conteit with Fato to think of winning
against the formidable array of baseball
talent wearing the Hood River uniform.
Tho local team put up fine ball, and
the management is pleased over the re
sults. In the second game the visitors never
readied second base. Iborg was even
better than the day before. He seemed
to loosen up and show what ha reallv
could do. While the attendance at the
second day's name wasn't lario. the two
straight victories without an adverse
score was satisfaction for .most anyone.
