Editor Ilayter of the Dallas Observer
prints the following sound advice each
week at the head of his editorial column:
"The way to build up Dallas is to pat
ronize Dallas people." This applies
with equal force to any city.
H. 8. Lyman, historian, educator and
prominent resident of Astoria, died last
weak in s Portland hospital. As his
home paper truthfully remarks. Pro
fessor Lyman was one of the best
loved men of Oregon. How infinitely
better this world would be could mow
men merit the same title.
The state of Idaho won the grand
prize at fit. Louis on her agricultural
display, and has also been awarded a
gold medal for the best collective dis
play of fruits; aleo 64 gold, silver and
bronze medals for individual exhibits.
The result of Idaho soil and enterprise
will be found competing with Oregon at
the Portland fair. There all after Hood

The Eugene Register prints the item
about Hood River apples going to Presi
dent Roosevelt, and adds in the head
line: "Our chief executive knows a
good thing when he sees it." All very
true. Only another ev'dence of the
marked superiority of Hood River fruit
During the president's western tour two
years ago, the Union Pacific arranged to
keep Roosevelt's car supplied all along
the line with Hood River strawberries.
It is impossible to pick up a paper
these days without some reference to
fruit that is "juBt as good as Hood
River." Now we don't mind a little
thing like that, for apples of any kind
do look pretty big to one who never saw
the real thing in Hood River, but here
comes someone from Cauby,below Port
land, who declares "the soil of that vicin
ity superior to the Hood River country
for fruits and vegetables." That man
was excited, to say the least.
The debate last week by the High
School Literary Club has stirred up
considerable feeling on account of the
subject discussed, and especially the
decision rendered. The subject chosen
was not a proper one for discussion
among school children, and it was an
error to allow a question of that kind to
be discussed. School children are not
supposed to be well posted on the ques
tion of saloons and as far as they are
concerned, there should be but one side
to the question, I. e., against it. There
are plenty of good subjects to be chosen
for debate that will call forth much
better effort in argument, and which
can be debated in good faith by both

Harper May Loose Ills Arm.
George Harper, an employee of the
Menominee Lumber company, missed
the afternoon train for Portland, Mon
day, and was forced to spend another
night in agony before he could get to a
hospital for relief from a serious case of
blood poisoning in his arm.
Harper is a member of Prosper &
Cameron's lumber camp, 16 miles up
the White Salmon, and was felling trees
one day last week, when a long sliver
from the stump of a tree became im
bedded in bis arm. Fellow workmen
endeavored by the use of a jacknife to
remove the piece of wood. They got
about half of the splinter out, and had
to leave the rest in the flesh uf the arm.
Harper went on with his work, but
in two days the arm swelled to the size
of his leg, and his suffering was aony.
He left Tuesday morning for Portland,
for an operation in a Portland hospital.

mended that the tux levy he made to

Want County Inspectors Wish to
Prohibit Hale of Wormy Apples.
The mass meeting of fruit growers at
the opera house Tuesday morning ap
pointed a committee of three to confer
with Representative A. A. Javne in
framing proposed legislation for the pro
tection of the fruit interests of the state;
passed unanimously a number of reso
lutions giving an idea as to the sort of
fruit legislation the farmers of Hood
Itiver valley desire;' listened to some
excellent discussions on needed fruit
laws; took a collection to pay hall rent
and adjourned sine die.
A. I. Mason, president of the Hood
River Apple Growers' union called the
assembled apple men together, and on
motion J. W. Morton was made chair
man of the meeting, with the Glacier
man secretary.
K. L. Smith, president of the state
board of horticulture, read that portion
of his bieniul report prepared for the
legislature, in which he recommended a
law providing for the appointment of
county fruit inspectors, and told of the
working of similar laws in other states.
The remarks of Mr. Smith have bean
given Bpace in another column.
In closing Mr. Smith pointedly re
marked that while the legislators of
Oregon have been very parsimonious in
giving financial aid to the fruit industry
for the purpose of enforcing inspection
laws, money by the thousands of dol
lars lias been paid out for Bcalp bounties
and encouragement to the growth of
lack rabbits.
Mr. Javne assured the fruit growers
of his interest in the encouragement of
the fruit industry. Mr. Javne is anx
ious to work for legislation that will
benefit the fruit grower, and believes
the legislature should appropriate suffi
cient money for entorcing the laws rela
tive to fruit inspection, but he states
that the people of Hood River must ex
pect to find opposition from non-fruit
raising sections ol the state to any law
looking to the exclusion ol wormy ap
ples from the markets.
Mr. Smith reiterated his remark that
it will be impossible to secure anything
more than the customary 450U from
the legis.ature that has been granted
heretofore for the state board of borti
culture, therefore the relief must come
from the counties. Hie state of Wash
ington has expended as much as $i"0,000
through its counties in the destruction
of fruit pests and for the inspection of
fruit and fruit trees. The work of com
missioner Carson in Jackson county,
Oregon, in eradicating anthracnose from
a single orchard is worth more than the
whole state b appropriation.
Mr. Smith offered the following reso
lution and on motion it was adopted :
"Resolved, That inasmuch as the ap
propriations of the state for the sup
port of our state board of horticulture
are wholly inadequate to protect our
fruit interests by the enforcement of
horticultural lawB and regulations made
in conformity with them, we therefore
most earnestly rconimeud the appoint
ment ol county horticultural inspectors
as outlined by our state commissioner
at large in his eighth biennial report to
the legislature. '
Mr. Mason expressed himself as a
firm believer in the efficacy of the coun
ty inspector system faun the fact that
such methods have worked satisfactorily
in other states. At the last meeting of
the Northwest Fruit Growers' associa
tion in Portland last winter Mr. Mason
met several of the cotiiity inspectors
ironi the state ot Washington, and it
was easy to see that they were compe
tent fruit men in every respect. The
fruit men of Washington were contin
ually poking fun at the men from Ore
gon because they were so slow and be
hind the times in the matter of fruit
inspection. -
At the meeting of the Nurserymen's
association in Hood River last summer
a distinct anti-Washington spirit was
manifested by the nurserymen who have
at times come in contact with the rigid
inspection system enforced in the state
ts the north of us. -
On motion ot A. C. Staten, Chairman
Morton appointed K. L. Smith, pres
ident of the state board of horticulture,
A. I. Mason, president of the Hood
River Apple Growers' union, and U. R.
t'astner,-a member of the board of di
rectors of the same organization, to con
fer with Representative Jayne in fram
ing a bill for the protection of the fruit
interests ofjtho state.
The question was then raised, "What
good would it do Portland to have a
county inspector?" and "Would the
Portland dealers want the law enforced?"
Smith and Mason replied that under
the present system cull apples are
duuicd into the Portland markets from
the slate of Washington by the carload.
The dealers have today more such fruit
on their hands than they can get rid of,
and they would be glad of au opportu
nity to keep such trash from their
houses. The law would be such that
the dealers or any one else could not
get around its enforcement. If Mult
nomah county refused to appoint a fruit
inspector, some adjacent county could
have the work done and charged to
Multnomah county.

the discussion of the fine points in the
wording of a motion to keep wormy a;
pies out of the markets, but the matter
was finally left to the appointed com
mittee fqr final settlement. The sense
of the motion adopted was that wormy
apples shall not be sold in the markets
of Oregon.
Mason said he would even prohibit
the sale of wormy apples in the stores of
Hood River. "While there will be
those who will not aeref with me on
this," continued Mr. Mason, "if a man
will stop to thin IT about it, he can see
that by buying five-tier apples for $1 or
less a box he Is irettimr more for his
fnonev tltL when lie ravs 60 cents for
a box of wormy apples. The flavor of
wormy apples is "spoiled in a month or
so, and liy the time you cut out the
worm hole and the decayed portion,
there is very little left. A good, clear,
sound apple, even if it is small, is pref
erable to a large wormy apple full of
worm hole."
E. H. Shepard, manager of the Apple
Growers' union, would prohibit the
sale of wormy apples entirely. There is
no money in th jin he says. By the
time they are placed on the market,
there is only 13 cents left the grower to
pay for picRing, packing and hauling to
town, tins leaves very little it any
net income. Poor apples invariably
lower the price of good apples.
J. L. Carter desires such a law. He
believes it will stimulate the product
ion of more perfect frnit. With Mr.
Garter it. is with compunction of con
science that he offers a box of wormy
apples for sale.
Peter Mohr remarked that visitors to
Hood Kiver have told him that the
poorest apples in the world are found
at eating houses in this citv.
The nurserymen who sell trees un
true to name came in for a grilling. Ala
eon, who has met with serious financial
loss from the work of nurserymen, is
anxious to make such offences a crime
punishable by a penitentiary term, but
Attorney Jayne considered this view too
radical, tie is of opinion that the
present laws will permit the irrower
who lias been duped to collect damages.
ttox size was discussed : selling of ap
ples from onedistrict under name of an
other, and tho seriousness of battling
with the Sun Jose scale. Among the
resolutions passed were the following:
Ihat there be county fruit inspectors;
That wormy apples 'be excluded from
the markets;
J hut the nurserymen shall itive
bonds to sell trees true to name;
J hat the special and standard boxes
be made the legal apple box of the state
and that the use of other Bizes be pro
hibited; That some effort be made to prohibit
fruit of one community being sold under
the name of another.
Mr. Mason, just liefore the close of
the meeting, stated that, the Davenport
Pros. Lumber Co. had made an offer
to the growers of the valley to furnish
apple boxes at 8 cents each, provided
the company could Becure orders for

captured his home fort. But their at

forts at Port Arthur. His commissary

was on the other Bide, for when the at

living room of Mr Byrkett's castle the
commissary department gave them the
laugh and seemed able to sustain a
number of such attacks.
Of course, Mr. Byrkett would never
tell a poor devil of a printer anything of
a good item like this, but the Glacier s
