HOOD RIVER, GLACIER, THURSDAY, JUNE 1 , 1905. MORE BERRIES; LESS ACREAGE CRAM TO INCREASE HIS CAPITAL STOCK More berries are being sent out from Hood River thin week, the beinlith of tlitj terry teason, thun were shipped at the name period last year, uotwithstHinlinK a IW per cent decrease iu the total ecrcage. This is accounted for by the superior quality of the berrien thin year. Bo far the weather conditions have been perfect for producing lare fruit, and finer lot of trawtorries never be fore left Hood Kher, than those sent out thin season-. lietween TCOi) und NtHX) crates were ehipped Monday night, and even more Tuesday night. Early iu the reason, Manager Shep ard of the Fruit Growers' union esti mated the crop at 75,000 crates. Many considered this too high an estimate, but indications are thiH will be slightly exceeded. Mr. Davidson of the Davidson Fruit Co. (ays orders for crate are coining in faster than big factory can niett the demand. Two Portland box factories are kept busy manufacturing crates for the Hood Hiver berry growers. Early in the season, when Mr. Davidson solicited orders for crates, the growers underestimated their crop, and failed to make their crate orders large enough. Now at the height of the season .the demand for additional crates is greater than three factories can meet. The factories ex pect to catch up with the orders in a few days. Pickers have been a scarce article thiHj'ear, and the want column of the Portland papers has been liberally pat ronized bv Ui local shipping associa tions in an effort to secure pickers for their customers. The early patches i.long the Colum bia and at White Saltuou are uearing the end of the season, while in the foothills the hen if s are just getting plentiful. As work grows scarcer in the early patches, the pickers move up the valley to the later plantations. Pickers are making good wages this season. 18 Cars of Herries Tuesday Sight. Thirteen full cars of strawberries left Hood River Tusday night, the largest shipment ever made in the his tory of the berry business in Hood River. Then were express shipments in addition to these 111 cars, whioh brought tl e total numlier of cases for Tuesday night, something between 8000 and IH'OO. The days havo been very warm this wek, with cool evenings. Tuesday night there was a refreshing shower. CAROLINA BERRY ' LOSS IS $600,000 Strawberry g; o vers of North Caro lina declare tley have lost G00,000 this year tweans-e the railroads failed to furnish stillicient refrigerator cars to transport the fruit to the markets. Speaking of Uib situation in that state the Produce News, under date of May 111, has the following report from Charlotte: "The loss of strawberry growers on the undelivered crop grows larger daily. Growers h::ve tiled claims amounting to fi",0,LHKi, and the Ob server of this city pluces the loss at 000,000. It is said the Atlantic Coast Line contracted for 1750 refrigerator cars, nud at time of writing only 50 had been delivered. The Armour car lines will be held responsible for all the losses. In faco of the fact that 15 or more northern agent s were on the ground, eager to pay 'J to 15c a quart, hundreds upon hundreds of crates were allowed to perish for lack of shipping facilities. Growers were gathering 15.1.00 to 20.1,00) crates daily and turn ing th mi over to the station agent. The a'tual Iihh amounts to 1180 car loads, business is demoralized, ship ping assoaiatious and clubs are on the verge of colla ee nud growers see ruin ahead. Ten luo.isaud hands were brought in to pick the crop, receiving 81 a day. The bank of Chad bourn last season 'took in 000,000 the first 70 days. This yeaf growers have not re ceived money eno gu to pay one-half their indebtedness on the present crop." Horry Losses in Missouri. Delay iu delivering strawberries by the express ci..: rallies in Kansas City Is causing i.eavy Josses to growers in that scr'ier'. es v ill bo seen in the following New York Packer dispatch from that city under dato of May lit: "The loss to berry growers in Ar kansas, Missouri and Indian Terri tory, by reason of delay in delivery by express companies in this city, will be very largo. The Wells Fargo Co. is blamed for poor service. Tis is aiding the private car lines, al though tbey have been complained ol also. Fruit lias hern handled very roughly, too. in haste to get rid of it. nm Neosho berries sold at ?'J.50 and 1 a case, but t he bulK of choice j fruit went at M.50 to if 1.75. The first shipment of Missouri strawberries left Snrcoxie on the ith, the earliest date in the history of the industry." WHITE SALMON.

The harvest has commenced in earnest on the first crop 1-ast year .1. A. Henderson secured five cr"P-, and the first crp were inrerfered by high water. This will undoubtedly lie one of the big years in the hay line, owing to the absence of high water. As a result of F. A. Cram's recent trip to Eastern Oregon, be has concluded to incorporate his popular business with a large working capital and will carry on a general business making such change; in his present system as seem best, lietween now and" February 1, l'JOti, he proposes to throw his entire line on the market, and to realize as much cash as possible and have his stock at the mini mum before merging into the new com pany.

Don't fail to see the new hats, latest m des, on display at Rand's. play soldiers on the field of life. It is easy to be brave at a distance from the smell of powder, but hard to lie brave at the call of right. All to soon will come the fluid taps lights are out, and the final roll call. "We live today not by tho survival of the fittest, but by their sacrifice. The country wr.s purchased in their blood. And so we lay laural wreathes on the graves of our honored dead. "On a battle field of the South, a young soldier lay dying. His com rades slowly and sadly laid him down, thinking that he no more would wake. Straigteniug himtelf out, he said: 'Listen comrades, don't you hear it? Hear the call of the roll ou high?' Then with joyful cry he answered: 'Jesus, captain, here am 1.' " 'Always faithful' is a motto writ en on a tombstone in the sunny South, erected over the grave of a hero. It describes all true soldiers, whether in times of war or peace. " Rev. Mr. Chambers, reviewed in brief the gist of his remarks and closed with that line from Kipling's recessional : Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet; lest we forget; lest we forget.'

R. and women of the Re lief corps gathered a the Grand Army hall at 10:30 Tuesday morning, and marched to the county bridge over Hood River, where flowers were cast upon the water in memory of the sol dier dead. On arriving at the bridge, the gath ering sang "Nearer My God to Thee, " after which Mrs. A. S. Mowers, com mander of the relief corps, took charge of the ritual work for the occasion.

Tho little white tents of the straw berry pickers are in evidence again. Norman Williams Must Hang. The Oregon supreme court has de nied Normnii Williams a rearing bo fore that body, and unless the gover nor exorcises his pardoning power the convicted murderer of tho Nesbitt women in the upper Hood River val ley is a doomed man. When tho news was received by Will iams it is said tie straightened up for a moment, folded his arms, as is his wont, and was silent for a time, but no visible change was noticed. When asked if he was not ready to make a statement, he answered : "Not yet, I may say something later. 1 do not want to talk to any one now." lie spoke in n kindly way, and then in a few moments walked to his cell. It now remains for Judge Itradshaw to re-sentence him, which it is liVely will be done when the court convenes in adjourned session. Thirty days from that time Williams must hang iu the yard at the county court house. Iley oild (iie.-tioii, Williams has au ticipnted for several days what the de cision of the Supreme court would be, for he has been arranging to make disposition of bis real property and personal effects. Monday he requested County Clerk liolton to piepare n deed to three lots be owns in Hellingham, Wash., leaving the name of the gran tee blank. This Williams iiifonned the County Clerk be would fill in and sig'j liefnre the day of execution, pro vided the Supreme Court did not in terfere. So far, Williams is maintaining the coolness with which he had demeaned himself ever since his conviction, and is per fectly resigned to his fate.thoiigh to those with whom be will converse he insists that ho is innocent. Lately he has been conversing with Father Desmarais, Catholic priest, to whom no doubt he has made a contession, if so , he will not likely tell anyono else of the crime for which he must now hang. He will probably go the to gal lows with the story of the murder of Alma Nesbitt and her mother a secret known only to him and his confessor. Captures Chicken in the Flume. A fat young chicken came sailing, down the big irrigating flume at S. D. i Garner's place one day this week.
