We can't justly judge the work of
the White Salmon 1'iuit Union until
the berry season is over and all the
returns are in. For a new organiza
tion it has made remarkable progress.
Over three-fourths cf all the growers
in the valley are members. They are
well satisfied so far. They have never

good. There has been uo fictitious

brought 7.iu in the open market.
It has been the policy of the Union
to make a rigid eximanatiou of all
berries shipped. None but the best

nent high-ways, commensurate with
the needs of the country.
The proceeding of the convention
will include addresses and dissensions
upon the scientific, ethic and econo
mic phases of the subject and its rela
tion to industrial progress and devel
opment. National engineers and ex
pert road builders will exemplify
modern methods of constructing
earth, gravel, macadam, brick and
other kinds of roads. Legislation
pertaining to national an state co
operation and supervision ; financial
ways and means; the use of convicts
and other detail of the subject will re
ceive practical cousiratiou.
An object lesson road will be con
structed on the exposition grounds
as a special exhibit, showing in detail
the process of road building, from the
foundation grade to the finished road.
It will demonstrate the application
and use of the varions kinds of road
material and the operation of the
latest improved road making n a

This is the first great national con
vention to assemble on the Pacilio
coast for the consideration of the all
important and primarily necessary
question of the improvement of the
common roads. Therefore, the states,
counties, cities and towns, together
witn the agricultural, commercial,
indnstiial and other organizations of
this section should profit by the ad
vnntages of the occasion and be fi lly
