bard to examiue into the merits of
Nearly au entire day was con
sumed lust week iu arguments before
the court on the bonding question,
W. H. Wilson of The Dalles represent,
ed those iu favor of bonding the dis
trict for the construction of a ditch
while A. A. Jayno of this city repre
sented the signers of a remonstrance,
about 30 in number.
It was argued by the opponents to
the movement that inasmuch as the
assessed valuation of the land within
the proposed bonding district is only
about 870,0(10, it would not be possi
ble to secure a loan sufficient to build
the ditch, which is estimated to cost
all the way from $00,000 to 75,000 and
Should the bonding proposition
carry, the rate of taxation would be
doubled, argued the attorney for the
remonstrators. Thtjpreseut tax is five
per cent, and about all the people
cau stand for.
Those in favor of this method of
building the irrigating ditch are con
fident that if the water is brought
out, the value of the laud will treble,
and the land that is of little or no
value without wuter cau be made to
increase its yiold ten fold. With
water, the locality can advance, but
without water, they must sit by and
see their neighbors grow rich, while
they can barely take out a livelihood.
Notice is given in another column
of a meeting of the citizens of the
proposed irrigation at the Barrett
school house, on the afternoon of
Tuesday, March H. F. M. Angus
will be the chairman of the meeting.
All interested in this irrigtation pro
ject are asked to be present. The
court is desirous of hearing both
ML HOOD FARMERS
TO ENLARGE DITCH
Robert Leasure, president of the
Mount Hood Ditch Co., returned
Saturday morning from The Dalles,
w here he wont to look after some logal
business connected with the organiza
tion of his company.
The Mount Hood Ditch Co. has had
au irrigating systom in operation for
about six yearn. Last year there was
insufficient water for all demands,
and the company has been reorgan
ized and some 2000 inches of water
Mod on in the stream of Hood River.
The capital stock of the company has
been placed at '.2000. Of this amount
81305 has been sold, about 8700 being
new stock, which was taken up within
a few hours after the new subscrip
tion books were opened.
It is the intention of the Mount
Hood farmers to enlarge the ditch
where needed, in order that it may
carry a largor amount of water. The
stockholders propose to do the work
themselves, and thus will he put to lit
tle actual cash expense.
With the increased water supply,
the Mount Hood farmers will now
be able to irrigate all the available
lfHi 1 under the ditch. Clover and fruit
will be grow n in abuudimee.
The officers of the Mount Hood Ditch
Co. are Robert Loasure, president; H.
C. Rush, vice president; J. L. Dim
mick, secretary; James Langille, T.
Will No Anay with Merse Flume.
A force of men are at work widen
ing the ditch of the Farmers' Irrigat
ing Co. through the Methodist lane.
This ditch will be made to carry more
water, and the high tlumo through
the Mor.-e property will be taken
down. This Hume was always an ex
pense, and had como to be very (inde
pendable. The construction work along Meth
odist lane is rather expensive, owing
to the rocky nature of the ground
through which the canal has to be
dug, but it will lie a permanent im
provement well worth the exponso,
so the Farmers' Dilch Co. argue.
M. II. Xiokelseu of tho Farmers'
Irrigating Co., wishes to correct the
impression that the board of directors
will sell water this summer by the
inch. This it seems is against the
regulations of the corporation. Ad
ditional shines of stock will be dis
posed of at i33 i er share for tho rigljt
to ono inch of water. The annual
tnr tl-.in inph nf water will be
regulated of course by the cost of
Spirit That Will Win Every Time
"Just to illustrate the thoroughness
of the Seattle spirit, I was talking to
one of the bankers of that city the
other dav. when a traveling man for
a San Francisco printing house
stnnnnd in." remarked James T.
Weart. we-itorn representative of the
Minneapolis Journal, who was in the
cit.v last Friday.
"The Seattle banker turned the
stranger down, politely telling him
that as long as lie could get printing,
or almost as good printing iu Seattle,
it was the Seattle printer he was go
me to patronize. When there was
something tho home people couldn't
do. whv then the banker told the
gentleman he would be pleased to see
him, but just so long as he could get
what he wanted in Seattle, if it did
cost a little more money he was going
to tret it there.
"That's the way they build up Seat
tle." asserted Mr. Weart, "and it is
the spirit that will win every time.
Keck lied Make (iooil Roads.
"The Methodit lane is one of the
best pieces of road ou my route," re
marked Midi Carrier Kinsev. " The
scheme of Sunervisor Woodworth in
piling up rek a foot or more deep and
covering this with dirt and gravel
nrovvd a success in roadnmking. A
bad piece of road in Jenkins lane wae
remedied in this manner, aim trie roan
at the t p of the DuvuHrm hill kept in
fine ulmnenll winter."
Mail Carrier Kins"v is confident thi
is a splendid wav to improve ttie roads
of the valley. 'This sort of improve
ment costs money, but it is the lies! snO

629 HOOD RIVER
A census of the Hood River school
district shows atotal of 629 children

297 boys; 332 girls.
This is an increase of 90 over the
school census of 1904.
Believes City Can Win Case.
Councilman McDonald stated at
Monday night's council meeting that
a letter from the city's attorney gave
the encouraging announcement that
the city stood very good chances of
winning the suit of routs vs. tne city
of Hood River, which case will be
argued on appeal before the next
session of tne state supreme court.
Monday night s meeting was a very
short session. With nothing exciting
on hand, at the suggestion of Cuncil
man McDonald, the session adjourned
until next Monday at 8 o'clock, when
the sewer question will be further con
sidered. There is a possibility that a
sewer system can be constructed by
forming a district embracing the whole
city for the constructing of the main
outfall while separate districts will be
formed for the construction of the
lateral sewers as needed.
This being the first meeting of the
month, bills were ordered paid as

"Mahara's minstrells opened at the

ance and last evening entertained an
other large audieneo. The oragniza-
tion can safely be called a male and
female minstrel combination and a
good one all the way through. In the
lirst part some most excellent voices
were heard of both sexes and the
jokes wro heartily enjoyed aud ap
plauded, in the olio, Damon, the
musician, while iu the first part an
attractive octoroon with phenomenal
contralto voice"lugged off the horns. "
The comedians were good and all that
v eut to make up a first class minstrel
entertainment was turned loose. The
same party will hold the boards to
night and as aunday amusements are
fast growing in popularity, w o ft el

well liked by all who know him.
The Klickitat county horticultural
society held a very enthusiastic meet
ing here Saturday, March 4. lhere
seems to be a great deal of interest
taken iu these meetings, as there was
a large turnout, and the addresses
given by N. A. Ingram, W. H. Miller,

both interesting and instructive.

Apples Reach New York in Fine Shape.
Manager Shepard of the Apple Grow
ers' union has just received word that
two cars of Yellow Newtowns, which
crossed the continent during the cold
est weather experienceud in 11 years,
reached New lork in splondid condi
tion, not au apple in the car being
touched by frost. There was no sign
of cold weather when the car started
from Hood River, but Manager Shep
ard took every precaution to line the
cars with building paper and made
them so absolutely frost proof that
they withstood the extremely cold
weather and Buffered no damage
This method of packing and lining
the fruit cars with paper is a new
idea, and the fact that Hood River
apples went through without injury,
while apples from other sections of
the counrty suffered from frost is very
gratifying to the local shipping union.
the apples in these cars wero live-tier
Newtowns, which brought 81. 15, a very
good figure for sins J apples. The last
car of union apples has been shipped
and sold. The car was filled with
