SONS OF VETERANS
TO ORGANIZE HERE
At the meeting of Cunby post, G. A.K.,
l6t Saturday, a loniinittee was appoint
ed to take steps toward the organization
of a ramp of Suns of Veterans in Hood
River. The Voinniit t"e is composed of
l'o-t Commander li. H. Hailey, T. J.
Cunning and S. F. Ulytho. It is hoped

At present there is no organization oi
the Sons of Veterans in the state of Ore
gon. Until other camps could be or
ganized in the state, a camp organized
in Hood River would have to work un
der the jurisdiction of the department of
California and Nevada. It would be
much better if other camps could lie
formed in tho state, and undoubtedly
there will be, and the department of
Oregon established,, in which event it
will be something for Hood River to be
proud of if she takes the initiative and
organizes Camp No. 1, Sons of Veterans,
department of Oregon.
The order, as its name indicates, is
composed of sons and lineal descendants
of the war of 1811-5. It embraces at
the present time- about 30,000 loyal
members, and it should be a million
strong. The organization is entirely
uusellish, the members having nothing
to gain personally, and they are organ
ized to assist the veterans in any way
possible in their declining years; to as
sist in properly observing Memorial day,
and to teach patriotism by their acts.
In these times, when people are search
ing records to trace their genealogy back
to the revolutionary war, it would be
well for the sons and lineal descendants
of Union soldierB of the rebellion to or
ganize camps of Sons of Veterans in
every community in the land. They
have the grandest heritage of all, and
they should appreciate it.
A renewal of interest in this organ
ization seems to have taken place all
over the United States, and it is hoped
that our state will not be behind others
and that all interested will aid in the
establishment of a camp in Hood River.
Following are extracts from the rules
and regulations of the order:
"Any member of the Grand Army of
the Republic, or honorably discharged
soldier, sailor or marine who served in
the army or navy during the war of
18lil-(i5, may be admitted to the sessions
of any camp, after having satisfied the
captain of his right to be accorded such
"A relief fund for the assistance of
needy soldiers, sailors and marines, and
the wido is and orphans of deceased
soldiers, sailors and marines, or relief
of members of the order, may be estab
lished by each camp, and any donations
to this fund shall be held 6acred for such
"The order being strictly non-sectarian
and non-political, the introduc
tion or discussion of sectarian or polit
ical topics within the camp is strictly
prohibited under 'penalty of a fine, sus
pension or expulsion from the order.
."A firm belief and trust in Almighty
God, and a realization that under His
beneficent guidance the free institutions
of our land, consecrated by the services
and blood of our fathers, have been pre
served and the integrity and life of the
"True allegiance to the goernmeiit of
the United States of America, based
upon a respect for and devotion and
fidelity to its constitution and laws,
manifested by the discountenancing of
anything that may tend to weaken loy
alty, incite to insurrection, treason or
rebellion or in any manner impair the
efficiency and permanency of our na
"Eligibility to Membership. All male
descendants, whether through the pa
ternal or maternal line, not less than
18 years of age, of soldiers, sailors or
marines who were regularly mustered
and served honorably in, or who were
honorably discharged from the army or
navy of the United states during the
war of 18(11-05, and whose ancestor
through whom membership is claimed
has never voluntarily borne arms
against the United States of America."

TO UTILIZE POWER
PHELPS CREEK FALL
That Robert Rand is a rustler is known
to all old timers in Hood River, and
that he makes a success of wlmtover he
undertakes; but when Mr. Rand bought
the property known as Wau-Guin-Guiit,
from F. M. Amen and announced that
would install a summer resort there
on, many of his intimates and other
not so intimate were inclined to give
him the "horse laugh." "And when he
bought "SoniiKdale from J.W. Morton
they opened their even and exclaimed:
ii ell, what next ! Is I ncle Hon going
to establish a national park om at Frank-ton?"
When Mr. Rand made these purchas
es, however, he had an eye open to
beautv as well as utility, and has been
constantly developing his well laid plant
until by the time the coming season
opens up-Jio will have Arranged the
the wild, tangled scrub oak corner lying
west of his new, splendidly equipped
hotel, into a most beautiful little lmrk.in
it is a tiny lake in which are hundreds of
trout that may be seen playing about in
the clear water. About the pond reach
ing out through the wooded parks are
ths leading m all directions to shady
nooks, bold, rugged, rocky points from
which one n.av look dow n hundreds of
feet to the tops of the trees which line
bank of the Columbia. Up and down
this famous stream far as the eye can
reach may be viewed from a hundred
points at au-diiin-tiuin tieautilul
scenes of of mountain, valley and stream
each new view point bringing out other
tieauties not beheld helore. 1 here are
in the park also rustic seats, fountains,
ickeries, mounds, huge moss-covered
boulders, in fact, everything calculated
to rest the eye and quiet the nerves of
the invalid, or recuperate the lag
ing mental forces of the victim of
For such a little Eden, not the least in
importance is the water supply. Here
is where Mr. Rand displayed most ex
cellent judgment in the purchase of
Springdale. (in this splendid prop
rty is, located an immense spring of
the purest and coldest of water. This
spring, Mr. Rand bus walled up with
concrete work and covered with a neat
little house; which he keeps locked, thus
keeping out all impurities from the
water, and has piped the water to his
hotel and has an abundance of water for
both tho hotel and for irrigating the
farming land lielonging to the two
ilaces. this farming land .Mr. Kami
ias leased to .1. L. Gordon for a term of
Mr. Rand lias given Alfred lioorman
and Warren Miller the contract of grub
bing and ditching the southern part of
pringdale and they are doing excellent
work, and when their contract is com
nleted will enable Mr. Rand to put in
cultivation several acres of thy best land
lie possesses; it is just such land as has
made lleaverton, Oregon, and that sec
tion famous for its onions and Mr. (ior
don will be sure to strike it rich If he
plants the reclaimed land to onions.
Keturnmg to the hotel and watching
the water pouring over ttie cliff the
(ilaeier man began to wonder how many
horse power ot energy were "wasting
their sweetness on the desert air." A
little figuring and a ronsesvative esti
mate of the amount of water going over
the falls showed over 1000 horse power'
oing to waste, and to tho printer s re
mark that it was too bad that some of
ibis energy could not be utilized by
some manufacturer, Mr. Rand replied:
"It probably will be in the near tut lire,
is 1 how have under consideration a
proposition from a mill man of lioise,
Ida., looking to the erection ot a iiourmg
mill below the falls for milling wheat in
transit. Another gentleman was here
a few days ago and made estimates and
looked the ground over for a suitable
place to put in an electric light and
power plant. Jle thought it an ideal
place for a plant of this kind and will
probably take advantage of it. The fact
is," continued Mr. Rand, "there is pow
er and room enough below the falls tor
several such establishments and some
wideawake nUin is going to snap it up
at no distant date." the old "print"
thought so too as he chased himself
along toward Hood River, and mar
velled at the short sightedness of some
men which permitted them unconscious
ly to walk dav after day over a fortune
just begging them to stop and pick it up,
and still more at the "long-sightedness"
of other men which enables them to
squeeze the shining ducats abundantly
out of the most barren proposition. And
he is still marveling.

REFUSED TO PRAISE
HOOD RIVER APPLES
That the Hood River apples were the
whole thing in the fruit show at St
Louis is alliruied by Jefferson Meyers,
president of the state fair commission,
and Colonel Doseh, who asfiMted in re
moving the exhibits from St. Louis to
the Lewis and Clark fair.
E. L. Smith was talking to these meu
when in Portland last week, and he
said they had the highest praise for
Hood River apples sent direct in a car
load shipment from the Hood River fair
last October to the agricultural hall at
St. Louis. The apples took everything
by storm, as has been noted time and
again in the columns of the Glacier in
reprinting remarks on the Oregon fruit
at the fair which appeared in various
papers and journals throughout the
People everywhere accorded Hood
River first place, and to Wasco county
conies the only grand prize on fruit
given in the whole United States. The
winning of these grand priises and gold
medals on fruit gives people of the whole
state cause to rejoice, as well as the peo
ple of Hood ltiver where the prize Iruit
was grown. Xevertheless, there are
some people even in Wasco county so
jealous of Hood River that they cannot
oear io see praise given wnere it ngni
Jefferson Myers told Mr. Smith that
he wrote a letter to The Dalles Chroni-
cleongratulating the people of AVasco
county on winning the only county
grand prize on fruit in the United States.
In the letter President.uyers says he gave
Hood River a generous amount of credit
for her magnificent display of apples.
Mr. Smith told Myers the Chronicle
wouldn't print the letter, and true
enough nothing of the kind has ever ap
peared in riie Dalles paper. Poor, little
jealous Dalles; you may get over it yet.
WHITE SALMON. 1
II. Knoptof lone was in White Sal
mon last week looking for a place to lo
