HOOD RIVER GLACIER
Iiaud vrT Thuridr by
AKTHUR D. MOB. Pnbttkr.
Tmai o! uborlptloa--1.40 JMf MI
THURSDAY, JUNE 1, 1905.
It Bhould be gratifying alike . to the
people of Hood River and the O.Ri
N. to realize that tangible results are
showing themselves from the advertis
ing matter prepared for the railroad
by R. M. Hall, and scattered through
out the Middle West by the passenger
department of this enterprising com
nany. Two woeks ago, the Glacier
made mention that Dr. D. P. Rae of
Fergus Falls, Minn., after reading the
O. R. & N. year book sent him by M
P. Jacobs of this city, has decided to
come to Oregon at once and to locate
in Hood Rivor. This week we have
Ijind R. Rutherford visiting in the
city and writing to his folks in Min
nesota that Hood River is even pret
vorder. Yesterday, for instance, it let
contracts for $30,000 worth of septic
tanks for sewage, secured a few new in
dustries, ended a successful religious
revival, closed all public schools so the
children could see the ball gam, made
a fairly good haul from th e salmon run
and contributed an additional bunch of
money to the exposition exhibit fund.
With a lusty civic spirit that sits up
nights to do tilings in the way of general
boosting, Bellingham will show her
neighbors how to grow.

When East Meets VYeBt.
The exposition at Portland will do
much toward giving the East a prop
er attitude of appreciation toward the
Wost. The thousands of Easterners
who will take advantage of the re

exposition, see the western country

take note of achievements, will return

To t.hn voters of Hood River :
The time has arrived when we the
olt.l-na nf Hood Kiver. are required
to stop aud think of politics. The
time lias arrived wnen we as a wnoie
mtiuf. vofa nn ttn iinrinna and Aimiliat
loally Important question, Local Op
tlon either for or against.
A few remarks to consider :
One Do the citizens of the city
thnlk as a whole that the town
better In every way since Local Op
tion has been In forcer No.
Two Is there not more drunken
ness In the city toduy than there was
before Local Option was In focrer
Three Do the merchants think that
the trade in drvifoods aud nronerls,
etc.. has diminished or Increased?
Lots of money leaves this town to be
exnanded In The Dalles aud Portland,
and the city has been (load since the
saloons were closed.
Knur If thn ntr.v Dims drv and otlu
towns near. The Dalles aud Portland
are wot does not the money that
would lie otherwise expended lu Hood
Rivor. bo to those townsT lea.
Five Do louuers. lumbermen and
timbermen of all kinds upend their
money here or In other towns? Look
at the trains and see. Every train
that goes out carries them to Portland
and Ihe Dalles.
Six Does the city pay the general
bills as promptly as it did when the
saloons were running lu Hood Kiver,
or are thev laid upon the table
detlnately. or discounted!1 Ask the
men who have presented bills to the
olty for payment.
Seven is there no whiskey or other
liquor sold lu Hood Kiver, today,
aud are there not more drunks in town
than ever before. We all know there
Eight Are not the druggists pes
tered nearly to death with people
wanting liquor for medical and other
purposes, and aro ttiey not compelled
to refuse, often loosing a good patron
because he cannot have liquor when
some niemlier of his family are sick,
and Is it not necessary to pay for a
prescription before one can get liquor
for medical purposes. Prescriptions
Ninth Is there a town In the
United States that has many saloons
in it that Is not lively t Aro the towns
wheh have voted Local Option lively.
Vos to the former, no to the latter,
Tenth lu how ' nmny states has
Local Option proven successful? Not
one, liquor Is bought and sold there
just the same as ever only by means
of Blind Pigs.
Eleventh How many buildings are
standing vacant in Hood Kiver that
would have tenants if the saloons wore
Twelve Does money circulate as
freely now as before the saloons were
Thirteen Is there not a certain ele
ment that would spend their nioui y
anyway for liquor? Then why not
have them spend it hero instead of in
Portland and The Dalles? It would
le far better lot us do so.
Fourteen Will not the city lie live
lier in every way to have saloons than
not to have them? It will lie bettor
for the town as a whole, for the Indi
viduals of the town and for eveiy
merchant in the town. More money
expended In town, more iu circula
tion, more in the city treasury, more
expended tn improving, the city,, liet
ter Bidewalks, prompter payment of
city debts, the city will be livlier and
Now If you cannot see that the
above are truo questions and answered
truoly then vote for L.0011I uptlon poi
if vou can soe they are correct, vote
against Local Option and have bettor
times and a better city.

Tells His Erfends of Oregon.
W. C. Martin, the dlacier's valued
correspondent in the Crupper neigh
borhood, was formerly a resident of
Florida. He frequently furnishes
articles for the Grain (l'la. ) Star, his
home paper, in which he never misssos
au opportunity to advertise the Ore
gon country to his friends iu the
Southland. Following is one of hii--recent
letters to the Ocahi Star :
"The trees of the Pacific coast con
stitute one of the most interesting
features of the country. Tho big red
wood trees of California have Klinost
world-wide notoriety. Oregon docs
not produce trees of such sizo, but
comes in as a good second. The tim
ber that is of the greatest value in
this country is the Douglas iir. It is
in great domand for shipbuilding, and
all kinds of structural work. Tl 0
railroad companies use a great deal i f
it to bridges and building cars.
The masts of the Emperor of tier
many 'a yacht are made of Oregon Hr.
"What greatly surprises the Eastern
lumberman who visits the forests of
Oregon and Washington for the first
time is tho immense sie of the aver
age logs handled by tho local saw mills
aud the great height the trees attain
before the first limb is encountered.
Tho red fir often runs skyward 12")

absolutely clear timber for this
height. Treos aro often found on the
Pacific coast which make from 10,0(11
to 12,000 feet of lumber to the tree,
and teu cords of wood to tho troe is
not unusual. There is a considerable
amount of oak iu this country, but
Is valitablo only for fuel.
"Washington is unrivaled in the
production of cedar, which is chiefly
manufactured into shingles. The tim
ber supply in this country is practic
"For several years past millions of
feet of lumber have been shipped to
foreigu countries, and there has also
been a good local demand for lumber
and shingles, but tho supply has not
been dominished to any appreciable
"Albert (irauam, a former Ocnla
boy, says that ho stands all kinds of
