HOOD RIVER GLACIER, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1004.
WHAT THE OREGON EDITORS SAW
Following are some of the things the
Oregon editors had to say ol Hood River,
after attending the meeting of the Ore
gon Press association held here last
week, and viewing the magnificent dis
play of apples at the fair:

teeman W. J. Clark ol the Uervais Star,
and the writer got into the rurtling lit
tle city Thursday ewming and were
greeted by the shrill crys of a dozen lads
shouting " UaUy tilaciw,U about the
fruit fair!" And this fin imprMiion
of the place was strengthened as the
visit was prolonged. A small place,
with bul one weekly newspaper, a daily
edition was issued throughout the bi
ennial fruit fttir. That took pmh but
that is what Hood Kiver is becoming
noted for. How could Editor Moe do it
and why does he get out one ol the best
In the itate? Because of his
support. He stated with pardonable
nrii a that every business man in 1100a
frnm banker to peanut vendor
regular advertiser in the Glacier. He
took a long ride through the valley laet
summer and in accosting 160 persons he
found that all but three were subscrib-
rn for the naner and one of these was
moving away. This is only one direc
tion In which the enterprise of Hood
Kiver people is attested, and naturally
it caught with a newspaper man.
Editor Moe is anew man in Oregon .qui
et, unassuming.but the way in which he,
assisted by his young associate, jolly
Ned Blythe, took charge of his fraternal
visitors and showed them every courte
ous attention, has won him a warm
place it the hearts of the Oreg6n pencil
The state press association meeting in
Minlnnetinn with the holdini ol the bi
ennial fruit fair, made it possible for
the editors.to see the best the vailey could
produce. Indeed the beautiful souvenir
badges, kindly presented by the Blake
Mcfall Paper Co., Pacifo Paper Co. and
American Type founders Co. indicated
the relation. Attached to the badge
was a medallion representing a typical
Hood River Hpitaeuberg apple.
Now we come to the fruit fair and
draw a long breath, for how can every
day common Engliab do Justioe to that
marvelous exhibit? As we looked upon
the apples we had heard so much about,
we were speech lest but not so Htm. E.
L. Smith.or ' Hood River Bmith"whose
eloquent tongue never Hies so fact as
wlma extolling the beautm and wonders
of Hood River's apples. He extended
the visiting editors the freedom of the
fair ajid of the cider barrel from which
the juice of the royal apples was drawn
by Jioud River' daugutura, By way of
precaution the editors were told that in
conauming eight bushels of apples a per
son would get enough of the spray from
the solution by which the fruit is
sprayed, to prove fatal. The boys took
the cue and seemed inclined to go the

the fair was held, in bold letters In the
far end otthe inuloaura was quoted," Ye
Shall KnowThem by their r'ruits,"wiiich
indicated tluU ilood Kiver people can
talkbiwticulture more correctly thauthey
can quote scripture. But the words
were certainly applicable.
Many people were present who had at
tended nearly all the world's fairs of
recent years, wlio declared they had
never seen such an exhibit. Men
were present from other sections of the
United States, who readily yielded the
Falm. The display was unprecedented,

they were exhibited in 60-pound boxes

Somehow or other the glory of the sun
Bet, reflected by hoary Mount Hood, si
lent sentinel of the valley, is found
again in the Lrilliont glow of the apples,
and thejerisp snowy breath of the 'Caa

turns into a decided "silvery'.' taste in
There was juat one editor in the crowd
to whom the poetic muse purred, after
the wonders ol the exhibit had been

It will doubtless be a matter of gen'
eral interest to state, however, that iiv
stead of separating the exhibit as sun
tested above, arranntmenta have lieen
made to transfer It intact to the St
Louis lair, there to re-enforce the Ore'
gun horticultural exhibit
The crowning experience ot the trip
was the lu-mile rule siven the editors
through the wonderful valley that pro
duces such wealth of horticulture. The
wagonettes were crowed, but by "thin
spacing" all got in, and enjoyed as flue
a ride as could have been taken. Start
ing up the west side of the valley, the
far-famed strawlterry district was first
penetrated. Farther up came the or'

The orchards were seen at their best
loaded to the limit with prise winning
apples. The question was asked why
the fruit wasn t thinned and the inter
rotator was assured that it had been,
The information was volunteered that
the only way in which to get the fruit
thinned out at all adequately was to
hire a Dutchman, give him a "big stick,"

Fresh cider and all kinds of fruit were
served in a most tioHpitalilu manner.
Another stop was made at the great or

were being packed for market. these
men alone expect to ship 20,000 boxes of
apples this season.

Two things impressed one on riding
through the valley. First, the class oi
of Deoule who have made the valley
what it is. Here is new blood, bring
ing not only enthusiasm and enterprise,
but good business sense. In fact many
of the Hood Kiver horticulturists are
business men who prefer the profits and
independence of fruit growing to the
more harracsing cares of city business
life. Second, it is work, persevering,
intelligent work, day after day, which
has brought the results. Hood Kiver
apples are not wormy and why? After
the fruit is set on the trees, tho spray
pump is used about every ten days, un
til the apple is matured. This one illus
tration spells w-o-r-k.

along its winding roads Is one long to
be treasured In memory.
Pleasureable as was the trip to Hood
Riyer to the knights of the pencil and
M'lssors, It was more man one or mere
recreation. For various reasons the at
tendance at this year's meeting was
not as large as It has been at times, but
all present were bona llde newspaper
men and women, and more work was
accomplished In the interests of the
association than ever before. Two
good buslneaa meetings were held
on the afternoons of Friday and Satur
day, and a public meeting was well at
tended Friday evening. An eloquent
welcome was extended the visitors by
the one and only E. L. Smith.
In response to an invitation exteuaea
by I. N. Fleishner, president of the
lwls and dark fuir, a committee of
10 editors were the guests of President

The country newspaper men of Ore
gon have had their annual vacation,
and have returned to their homo con
gratulating themselves noon the wis
dom of choosing Hood Kiver as the
place of the IHth annual meeting. No
more pleasant social gathering than the
one held In the famous Hood Kiver
valley last week has ever been recorded
in the history ot the Oregon Tress anno
(nation. While the attendance was
not as large as usual, the convention
was composed of men and women who
are actively engaged in newspaper work,
and the usual crowd ol idle pleasure
seekers was conspicuously absent. A a
B result, the publishers were enabled to
got down to earnest work, and steps
were taken to place the association on a
substantial business footing and to
carry out measures that will financially
benefit every newspaper in Oregon. The
members, ono and all, express the
belief that the days of idle junketing
trips are over for the Oregon rreas asHo
ciatioii, and that a bright and prosper
ous future is in store for the country
newspapers of the state.
TUB CXINVKNTION CITY.
Hood Kiver is a beautiful little city
of 1000 population, situated on the south
Dana oi the lordly uoitiinbia and at the
mouth of the stream from which the
city derives its name. It is (14 miles
east of Portland, and 24 miles west of
The Dalles. Being on the main line of
the O. K. & N. railroad, it has excel
lent transportation facilities, Portland
being reached by a two-hours' ride.
The town was platted twenty years ago,
DUt up to within the past nve years its
population did not exceed 500 souls.
Since that time it has grown in nw
and commercial importance by leaps
The town has au excellent water sup
ply, electric lights, well improved streets
a $20,000 hotel, and numerous stores
and shops. A sawmill of 100,000 feet
daily capacity and a lurge fruit box
factory give employment to a small
army of men. Three large public school
buildings and numerous handsome
churches speak eloquently for the edu
cational and moral tone of the town.
Many costly brick business buildings
are in course of construction. The
resuleuee streets are lined with beauti'
nil homes, manv of them IM-Iongmg to
Portland eupitallsts who have orchards
In the valley.
The business interests in Horn! Kiver,
as in Dallas, are controlled by young
men, anil it is neeilless to add that no
opportunity or advantage is overlooked
that will add to the welfare of the town.
Tho people, voting and old, are hospit
able and are ever ready to extend the
hand of welcome to the strangers within
their gates. They are proud of their
beautiful town and itsrichsiirrotindiiigs,
and are constantly on the alert to make

TUB KBl'IT FAIR.
The sixth biennial fruit fair of llood
River was held while the Editorial
convention was in sea-ion, and proved
a revelation to all who had never seen
display of the products of the famous
ood Kiver valltn-. Language is mad
AT HOOD RIVER
equate to describe this exhibit it was
simply beyond comparison. Two long
tables running through the center of
the pavilion were covered with apples,
peaches, pears, grapes and quinces on
plates, while on either side, banked six
boxes deep and rising tier alter tier,
were apples packed in boxes as if for
shipment. It wss not an uncommon
sight to see 46 apples completely filling
a 60-pound box. Sucli a wealth of color,
Quality and size has never been seen at
any other fruit show in the world. It
will be good news to every citizen of
Oregon to learn that this magnificent
display of fruit is to be forwarded to the
St. Louis fair, to be placed on exhibi
tion in the Oregon section. The expense
of shipping the entire display will be
borne by voluntary subscriptions by
members of the Portland Chamber of
Commerce, the Lewis and Clark Htate
Commission and the eitiaens of Hood
River. This fruit display will go further
toward advertising the productiveness
of Oregon than anything else that could
be sent from the state.
President E. L. Smith, Out grand old
citl7.cn of Eastern Oregon, was always
on hand to look after the comfort and
entertainment of visitors, and the news
paper men will never forget him for
the many kindnesses shown them. The
writer also desires to thank Superin
tendent G. R. Castner and F. G.
Chandler, both prominent orchardists,
for personal favors, not the least of
which was the filling of our traveling
hag with the choicest specimens of
prize-winning apples. The press-gang
also remember with kindness Editor
Arthur D. Aloe of the Hood River Gla
cier, and his able assistant, E. N.
Blythe, who were always on hand to see
that the boys did not miss any of the
good things provided for their enter
taintnent. The Glacier ottlce kept open
house, and the editors were shown every
courtesy and kindness. 1 lie Daily
Glacier, published during the three
days of the fair, and containing the late
telegraphic dispatches, locul news, and
full report of the proceedings of the
press convention, was a triumph of up-to-date
VISIT TO OPEI.L.
One of the pleasant incidents of the
trip to the writer was his visit to Odell,
where he was entertained at the hospit
able home of Mr. and Mrs. Roswell T.
Shelley. We were met at the train by
Air. Shelley, Thursday morning, and
after our luggage had been safely stowed
away in the hotel, we visited the fruit
fuir and were privileged to meet and talk
with many of the leading business men
and apple growers. At the close of the
press session in the afternoon, Mr.
Shelley called for us with his horse and
buggy, and we were soon out on the
country road among the strawberry
Melds and apple orchards. Mr. Mielley s
driving horse has a track record of bet
ter than 2:30, and the seven miles
between Hood River and Odell were
soon covered, tho roads lieing in perfect
condition lor fast driving.
Odell is properly termed the hub of
East Hood Kiver. It iH situated at the
i unction of the Cloud Cap Inn and the
''alls roads, and has a church, school
house, blacksmith shop and store. Mr.
Shelley is the founder of the little vil
lage, having opened a store there two
years ago. He prospered from the be
ginning, and today no store in the val
ley is better known or more widely
advertised. He recently built a sub
stantial warehouse and fruit storage
room across the road from his store and
is prepared to handle all the products
of the valley. He is assisted in his
business by Mrs. Shelley and his eon,
Ralph. Living in the most beautiful
portion of the famous valley where the
oil is rich, the climate is delightful,
and the surrounding scenery is grand
Itevond description, it is small wonder
that the family is contented and happy.
Mr. (Shelley still has a warm spot in his
heart for Polk county, and wishes to be
kindly remembered to his old friends in
UhUih and Independence.
KDITOHS IN CONVENTION.
The lHth Oregon Press association
held two business sessions in the rooms
of the Hood Kiver Commercial club,
and also a public session in a large
auditorium adjoining the fruit pavilion
The latter meeting was open to the
public, and the large building was
packed with citizens and visitors, who
availed themselves of the opportunity
to hear the speeches and discussions,
The members of the press in attend

VISIT 1D05 FAIR OHOUNDS.
In response toan invitation from the
Lewis and Clark Fair commission, the
association appointed a committee ot 10
to visit Portland and go over the grounds
of the exposition, the committee an
rived in Portland Saturday evening, and
spent Sunday alteraoon at the grounds.
Here every courtesy was shown the
committee by Vice-President I. N
Fluischner and Secretary Henry E.Reed
The buildinus and grounds were exam
ined, and nil visitors expressed surprise
at tne magnitude of the propose)
fair and the progress that has
been made. After returning from the
firoundj, the party was entertained by a
unoheon given by Mr. Fleischner in the
Hotel J'ortland grill room. Here direc
tor-', ieneral Goode joined the party, and
the fuir and its advertisement was thor
oughly discussed. The otlicials ware
in lor in ed that the memheua of the Ore
gon Press association stand ready to do
all in their power to advertise the fair,
and that this publicity will be given
without thought of remuneration.
Hound ta Ualn Fame.
The Hood River fruit fair, which held
its sessions last Thursday, Friday and
iitunlay, was a success beyond all ex

a large manlier of samples on plate, and
such apples we never saw before. We
