The question every one is asking these
nights as the lights go out: "When will
that new dynamo be here?"
Reports from Eastern apple market
state that the situation has taken a turn

by the election of E. L. Bmith of this
city as third vice president of the Nat
ional Irrigation congress. The congress
meets next year at Portland.
John II. Ginder, the new proprietor
nd editor of the White Salmon Enter
prise has made a marked improvement
in that little paper. The Enterprise
promises no longer to be a burlesque on
its name. We know the people of White
Salmon welceme the change.
A bright little weekly came to light
the other day at St. Johns, and will
hereafter be known as the St. Johns Re

The young men of Hood River have
organized a complete volunteer Are de
partment. Give them your moral
and financial support. They are drill
ing a team of fire fighters that may some
day save the city thousands of dollurs.
The boys are enthusiastic and ambitious
to become the crack fire team of the
state. They have the material, and
after a few months drilling will be
able to contest with the best of them.
The Glacier wishes the boys succers.
The Hood River Volunteer Fire de
partment is now ready to combat what
ever fire should dare show itself within
the city limits. While the boys have
only the chemical eiigin as apparatus
at present, the department expects to
organise a hose company as soon as the
fire hydrants are placed in, and a hook
and ladder department will also be
The organisation of the fire depart
ment has been ofliuially recognised by
the city council, and the care of the
chemical engine has been turned over
to the boys. An engine house is being
erected next to the city hall, where the
chemical will be stored. Room will
also have to be made here for hose carts
and a hook and ladder truck.

Lose! Valuable Hear Hound.
"Old Drive," a valuable bear hound
belonging to Mordecai Jones, the Husum
bear hunter, met his death Inst week
from a tussle with a big black bear. Mr.
Jones regrets very much the loss of his
faithful hound, who had seen service
for many vears, and taken part in the
capture ol 70 bears.
Mr. Jones was in the city Tuesday, the
pest of Dan Mears. He was out hunt
ing last week with some friends from
Wales. The hunt proved too strenuous
for his guests and they gave up the
chase. Jones, who never turns back
when the dogs have scented a bear,
followed the lead of his hound. Dark
ness was coming on, but Jones got a
glimpse of the bear as he was aUtut to
disappear over the edge of a steep and
muddy"pot-hole"and tiring for the nevk,
the bullet grated the bear's backbone,
and bruin came tumbling to the ground.
Rushing into the thicket, Jones found
the bear very much alive, ami with the
dog in his mouth the bear rolled on
ou down the mountain side. Hurrying
on. Jones dispatched the bear with a
bullet through, the head. The dog arose
with an ugly gash in his throat, and
shortly alter lie was siesett with a vio

jugular vein and caused the dog's
The bear was a monster. The hide

To Supply Power for Flour Mill.
The big ditch down the side of the
hill east of the steps and across the bus
iness section of the city to the railroad
track will be filled with iron biue.which
Joe Wilson is laying to supply power to
Uie nour mill at the loot ol Irving street.
Joe Wilson has signed a contract with
the milling company to supply upward
of 50 horse power for a period of ten
years, with the privilege of renewing at
the expiration of the present contract.
The pipe to carry the water is 12 inches
in diameter, and the reservoir on the
. hill near Charley Clark's residence Mr.
Wilson save has a capacity of 1,000,000
' gallons, the big pond is 100x300 in ex
' "tent. Water to supply the reservoir
comes from Indian creek.
Mr. Wilson while laying the pipe is
ront of the Davidson rruit (Jo s office,
another in front of Wilson's warehouse,
a third beyond the Page & Son ware
house and one near the flouring mill.
Mr. Wilson is putting in these fixtures
at his own expense.
From the bench nrar the railroad
track from where the railroad engineers
clo all their surveying, is 852 below the
bottom of Wilson's reservoir. A 12
inch piM with such a full from the res
ervoir holding 1,000,000 gallons of water
will naturally develop an immense
amount of motor power.
The machinery of the flouring mill
will be operated by water motors. For
each separate piece of machinery there
will lie a separate motor, thus conserv
ing the water supply, and making it
much easier in closing down any par
ticular bit of machinery.
It developed at the meeting of the
city council Monday night that the
board of insurance underwriters at
Portland will refuse to grant a reduction
in insurance rates in the city of Hood
River unless the city secures water for
fire hydrants from a reservoir having a
reserve at all times ot,i,000,ooo gallons.
Joe Wilson, with whom the city coun
cil is arranging for a water supply for
Hra hvdrants in the business uart of
the city, returned Monday night from
'ortlaml, where he had conferred wun
Mr. Stone of the board of insurance
underwriters, and made a report to the
council eoncernin-' the question of
reduced rates if a system of fire protec
tion is installed.
The first unesslon Mr. None asked
Wilson was: "What is the capacity of
your reservoir?" "One million gallons,"
replied Wilson, "the amount flowing
in?" "Three times what will be flow
On leariiins the nine from the reser
voir was 12-inch iron, Mr. Stone wanted
to know what the town would do for
water shnnld the pipe break. "What
if the Bull Hun pipe should break?"
replied Mr. Wilson. Mr. Stone then
stated there would have to be a reserve
of 1,000,000 gallons in the reservoir at
all times, and then went on to Inquire
why Mr. Wilson did not nave two pipes
leading from the reservoir.
This report from Mr. Wilson came as
a surprise to the members of the coun
cil. Mr. Early stated that a member

Early in the session, Councilman
Pruther resigned as chairman of the
sewer committee, and J. E, Rand was
named in his place. W. I. Gadwa and
Will Sheets of the Fire department
addressed the council, and on motion
the fire and water committee was in
structed to meet witli the hoys and to
receive whatever report they had to
make, and to turn over the lire engine
to their care.
Rand, chairman of the committee on
fire and water, reported favorably on
the proposition from Joe Wilson to
supply the city with water for fire
hydrunts. An ordinance, giving Mr.
Wilson a contract to supply the water,
passed lint reading and wtfs referred to
the fire and water committee for a few
slight additions. The contract states
that the city shall take water for not
less than five hydrants at (1 a month,
Mr. Wilson to supply the crosses and
connections. Councilman Early thought
the installing of this plant would cost
the city $2000, and on motion the finance
committee was Instructed to see if the
necessary funds would be forthcoming.
Ordinance No. ill. prohibiting boxing
contests in the city of Hood River,
passed second reading and was placed
on final passage by a unanimous vote.
Votes of thanks were extended to
