is in reply to remarks made by Horace
YV. Day, another apple exporter, which

New Y oik, May HI. Kditor (ilacier
Hood River, lire: Wo note in the
Hood River Oliieier under dale of
May IN, an interview with, us staled,
a prominent New York roinmission
tneiclmnt, wherein it is advocated
that tho Hood River farmers could
net more money l r their apples by
selling tin m direct :"'n,'land, inti
mat in t bet. en I I'e l t.f t :a opetators
only buy up tVe Hi:. t'.iver apples to
shij' to Ki n '. e on the itreii.'lh of a
very lare ti.ii.'u'ii' ol' prellt, it would
be more tidvi-al'l" for the grower to
seciihite bin.. .'If, and n no this liii'Kc
prolit made l.y tho Knstirn buyer,
rather than lo nil to the middle man.
The writer ct.m-idi is that if this
New Yoik if ui Int. I the interest of the
Hood River t;; nv el.- tit htmrt instead
of his own, hn v. ould not. advocate
Hiimblir.ir, es In tlhs it, in eoiisittii

tant. While it is ttoe that, the New
town Pippin have indued extiava
(cut prices, on tl'e Rnlish markets
i'' '.'inn the '.'i-t si'ii -rn, yel it was al
together due to the fact that the YVht
t -tiville, fid., Xewtovn crop was
t i irly it coii'i h t, fniltiro which nutde
ti- o'xtn l"fly liiKh prices posstlile.

leokiiif lifter uiy otiier hi'eioi-ls than
his own, takini; into c. nsidetiiton the
fact that I'.o must certainly know wind
the crop of Wattonvilln Newtowns is
likely to be the coming si asou, alter
havitiK' been through that, country
just previous to his arrixin at Hood
The writer considers th:d. by reason
of his former connect ions, he, has done
mom to futther the interests of the
Oret;on, and for that, matter, f he en
tile Western commercial apple propo
sition, and has paid les to the grower
about it than anyone ou this market,
having Introduced the Western apples
in the Rust against strong competi
lion, to say nothing of sectional feel
inn. We consider that the growers
and buyers are in this business for
what they can net out of it, mid not
for their health. If ibis merchant
knew for a certainty, and tho induce
ments which he held out, would indi
cate thai, there was a prolit of '.'ic to
i?l per box for tho speculators, he
would bo one of the llr.-l, ones to say
the least iibeut it, and take advantage
of the siluat ion himself, as probably
some of the pioneer growers in Hood
River will know, hy reason of the fact
that their early crops were bought up
indirectly by this same party, at, what
are today considered red icuhat.-ly low
prices. I n nia-kim: t Ids assert ion, re
jrnrdinj! the benefits that tho t;rouets
Imve reaiiid since, hy reason of the
writer's cottiinn in direct competition
to secure their goods at t he really ex
travagant pt ices which were realized
by them the past, two seasons, we de
sire t he credit to be given v. here
credit, is duo. We do not want to lake
too much of the credit upon our
selves, but. are flank to admit, that
the prices w otdd nc er have been nil si d
to the high standard t hat has prevailed
the last two seasons, were it, not for
the fact, that hy reason of our superior
outlet, we were obliged to cover our
reiinirinonts by running up t he prices,
where only two concerns could take
Now tho object ef this coiiiliiunca
tion is simply this; that on a recent
visit to your town, the writer was iin
pressed very much by the large
acreage set out, which in a few seasons
will come into bearing, and the opto-
mistie idea regarding future value
I un primarily to tho fact t hat one or
two part ies who had visited New Vork,
returned witn stories regarding I lie
fabulous amount of money which the
Hood River fruit was being sold at.
Now, we do not know whether this
was simply newspaper tnll;, or actual
facts, but in either event, v.e t.ru.-t
that the same will not, have any bear

As regards the pear proposition,

it for granted that the priee.i were
mentioned to further a con.-ignmont
proposition against a buying one.
If anyone doults the advisability of
consigning rather than buying, vie
oily have to refer the growers in
Hood River to tho growers in Califor
nia, who have, by reasons over which
; they had no control, been obliged to
jceiisign, with the result that at the
I present day, tliere is .only one of tho
pioneer growers, that we know of,
who consigned, who has anything to
show for his hard labor. Throughout
the entire Northern section of Calif

ou his hand, and have some to spare,
those who followed the consignment
proposition, who have got enough to
live on. So, dear sirs, do not be led
astray by the elopionoo of the solicit

to regret it. Personally, nothing
would ph ase the writer any more than
to give it a trial and sec where thev

The prospect 8 of a good apple crop
throughout the Paoille coast section,
indicate a large and excellent crop.
We have leliuble reports that the
crop in Y'iiginiit of Albernuirles, Wine
snpt and Hen l'avis, promise an
aliundaut crop. We have reports be
fore us today from Western New Y'nrk
that the crop there will also be good.
Vermont also promises a good crop.
We have no reports front Michgan,
Illinois, or Iowa, but sutl'ce it to say
however, that the conditions will
practically lie about the same as last
year, ami if the crop situation does
not change any between now and the
first, of Kepteinl er, it w ill become im
perative that from buyer's standpoint
a conservative stand should betaken.
Foi' t he past throe years there have
heen euormttos losses made by buyers
of Kastern apples, and it is a question
how long these losses can be kept up.
I n a conveivid ion today with one of
the largest handlers of Rastern ap
ples, he voluntered the statement that
lie was prepared to purchase 'J.'0,lW
barrels ef apples at l?l per barrel and
Ht no higher price, if, as probably
will be tho case, a good proportion
of tho operators in Kasteui apples
cannot, secure It n uncial bin king lo go
into the ileal this season, it may be
possible that, the dealers who will be
engaged the coming season can prob
ably jsec ure their rc(tiirtnonts at 1
per barrel f. o. b. primal shipping
point, and if such proves to be the
ease, operations in I'acille coast apples
hy Kastern dealers, will have to be
made on a far more cotiserv at ivo basis,
than that prevailing for the past, two
seasons. Kor the past three years,
Western New York slate has grown
ami harvested what was considered
"bumper crops," the quantity last,
season being not only the largast, but
of exceedingly line ipiiilily f or J'astei u
apples. This proves that the experi
mental stations situated in various
parts of the state have not only dem
onstrated to its students that by
adopting tip-to date iind scientillc
met hods, that the orchards could I e
made to produce the quantity and
quality of fruit such as gave the west
ern part of New York stale a world
wide reputation in years gone by,
but many of the growers who have
followed these modem methods hnve
enjoyed the benetlts which have in
duced largo numbers of t hem to follow
their example. It will only he a short
time before the old fashioner! or
chards w it h its scrubby trees and poor
fruit, will be a thing of the .ist, and
with such conditions staring us in tho
face, one will have to, lis a matter of
self interest, be governed by the
changed conditions, consequently,
your readers will readily see the risk
they would follow in taking t he advice
of one who has not tho conlldenco in
entertaining a purchasing proposi
tion, but would far prefer, from the
statements of your last issue, to per
suade growers to consign, and be
satislled with commissions covering
all shipments made in his care.
In conclusion would stale, that in
replying to I his art icle we have gone
info more detail t linn exported tout

due to tho growers and ourselves that
t he other side of the case should be
stated plainly, and allow them to gov

for the close of the most successful
harvest that the White Salmon ranch

was in evidence on nil sides. The
rancher with his pockets full of gold
coin, or with big certilled chocks
nestling closo to his suspender liucklo
on his lelt side, waltzed and mingled
with his pickers, who too were enjoy

Eleven Acres In Walnuts.
Prod W. Ralsiger, who lives a half
mile northwest of White Salmon, Is
trying a new venture. A year ago he
planted an aero of Knglish wuluuts.aud
alter making it test of the conditions
he is convinced that they w ill do well
in this climate and is planting ten
acres more, It will requite hix years
before the trees will bear; it will take
that, time beforo others will follow.
i Mauv of the ranchers are interested in
tho project and if the nuts turnout
well, much acreage will bo planted.
Ml. Ralsiger stated to me that ho was
satislled the trees would do well here,
as tho climate was about tho san e
as other places whole the crops were
heavv. Many of the ranchers are
skopitotd but that may all be overcome
if the venture proves a money maker.
