BEST IN WORLD!
SO SAYS MR. DAY OF NEW YORK
Wcll-Kminii CiiiiiiiiisKliin Man Loml
In his Praise f Hood River
Hood Kiver annloa are the flnout lu
the world. " remarked Horace W. l)av.
of Sohobel & Day, Now York city, who
wan here last Tliuri'day. Mr. Day
wan on hia return from a trip through
the western Htaten. Ho ha been to
the eoai-t each year for the hint teu
yearx, and in the laist four or five
years him made it a point to spend a
day at Hood Kiver.
Thursday eveui: l'r. Day met
with the uiiedors t t ti e Apple (Irow
or' union and a mm In of the mem
bers to rii.-rr.vM the m lo business in
Hood Kiver, and dm iug a conversa
tion at the Motiht. I loot' hotel made
the statement credited to him above.
"When you consider that this re
mark has I ecu n udo by a man who
has been in the ( ru n it-sinn business
in New di k for lit! years and has
handled nothing tut fancy fruit from
all oer the wo: Id," said E. A. Kranz
of the He. od hiwr Fruit Growers'
union, "you can n uko up your mind
that there is tome value to thin re
"Mr. Day de oti s most of his time
u travelling over tl e country hunting
r the te hint there Is to lie
. und, " cent hit cd Mr. Franz. "When
i ro, he had just como from a trip to
C .liforniii, and was on his way back
ii New York.
"Tide is no place in the world
where they can raise Spiteubergs and
Newtowns of the stu: n high quality
as they can in Hood Kiver valley,
said Mr. Day. Hut growers must
hear in mind that he refers only to
our very best, as our small apples and
a pies olf color are no better than
cheap apples from other localities.
New York city, ho declared, is always
w illing to pay a high price for strictly
fancy Spitzenbergs, but they must be
'red all around,' aa he put it. He ex
pressed himself so often on this point
that it seems he has placed it on my
mind with indellible ink.
"Mr. Day expressed himself as being
very much satisfied with the pack
that the Hood Kiver Apple Growers'
union put up last season, and com
plimented f the growers very highly
for the lino fruit they are able to
raNe. They must not be content,
though, said he, to rest on their laur
als. i'hoy must try to improve each
year. In New York when a merchant
buys a box of apples, the first thing
ho does is to dig down to the third
layer, where he looks for the nigger
in the fence.
"He brought out another point
which the majority of the farmora
hero have not known beforo, that a
box of apples containing !M! to the box

as ou Newtowns which go to England,

"The question was put to him if he !
thought there would ever be an over I

time would come when we would not :

"In regard to tho marketing of the

ion the farmers in Hood Kiver would !
net more money for their apples by j
selling them direct to England, as a i

which gave the fellow who bought the

seemsto methat the Hood Kiver farmer
could afford to be the gambler in
such a case.
"Mr. Day made the remark that
lu three years from now there will not
be one carload of Harletts shipped out
of California. The pear blight there
is killing every tree in the state. Mr.
Day obtains his information by com
ing iu contact with the large growers
"It may be of some value for the
Hood Kiver growers to know that
California, which has supplied the
New York market with llartlett pears
for a good many years past will prao
tically be out of it iu three years.
He furthermore said that Medfor'd had
some very nice pear orchards coming
on. He was quite surprised when he
learned that we had shippedsotue liart
lott pears in carload lots from here
last fall, but was more so surprised
when he found out that about 700
was all we got for them per car, as
the sales he made for tho California
growers brought them from gll 10 to
l,7-iU per car, and two carloads of
Doyenne du Cornice pears brought

priors are for fancy pears only, not

FRONT STREET WANTS
A FRUIT INSPECTOR
Front street commission men have
gone ou record as favoring the ap
pointment of a fruit inspector in
Multnomah county, as povided for by
the law which becomes operative May
IS, says the Portland Telegram. A
mooting of .the Merchauts' Produce
association was held andumong those
atteudlng was ytato Horticultural
Commissioner Newell, who urged the
commission dealers to assist iu secur
ing the appointment of an itiHpertor
as a safeguard against the shipment
of infectious fruit into this market.
Iu past seasons tho Front-street
houses have suffered by reason of the
condition of certain classes of fruit,
and till interested in supplying the
trade with the best and healthiest
fruit are doing their utmost to help
the appointment of an inspector.
When the county court meets early
in June a petition will be presented,
as prescribed by law, iiraying for tho
appointment of a fruit Inspector.

of tho outside districts have arranged
to tile the proper petitions, mid thus
it will be assured all orchards, packing-houses
will be caret ully looked
after so that the murkets will receive
shipments that may be tillered the

Another factor prominent In help
