Took Them For Hood River Berries.
Hiiino fine looking strawberries were
d sn sved from tile J.inn county boon
at the I. ( wis and Clark fsir on the
opening day, of the Exposition, and
as an eimterner passed by the exhibit he
remarked :
"These berries I suppose are from
Hood River."
J ml K Stewart of Albany was in charge
of the Linn county exhibit at the time,
and he was telling the joke when in
Hood Kiver last Friday. "Why," said
lie, "I was mad enough to fight, when
the stranger mistook those berries for a
Hood Kiver product.
Hut the judge saw the humor of It
afterward, and Is now more determine
than ever that his county shall will that
11(100 prize for the best county exhibit
at the exposition. Joe Cannon, after
looking over the county exhibits, re
marked that the Linn exhibit looked
better than anything he had seen at the
lair. 1
Judge Stewart was in Hood River In
company with Rev. and Mrs. W. P.
White of the Unitad Presbyterian church
at Albany and Mrs. Gibson, wife of
the pastor of tbe Grand avenue church
of Portland, who were here as a recep
tion committee on behalf of the United
Presbyterians of Oregon to welcome a
delegation of Eastern people on their
way to Albany to attend a national con
vention of the woman's general mission
ary society of the United Presbyterian
church of North America, which con
vention convened at Albany ou Monday
of this week,
Judge Htewart says he was in this sec
tion of Oregon once before. That was
in 18(15, when he passed here aboard a
flat boat on the Columbia. He made
the overland trip from Iowa and settled
in Linn county, which has been his
home since then.
Last June, Mr. Stewart was elected
county bulge on the democratic ticket in
one or the strongest republican counties
in the state. Albany and Linn county
be Bays are receiving their share of the
eastern immigration. He Is acquainted
with Sam Harbison, having sold him
the farm which he now owns. Mr.
Harbison has just completed a very fine
dwelling, ami is prospering in tbe
Willamette valley.

White Salmon Cut no Prices.
White Salmon, Wash.. June 0. Ed
itor Glacier: In last week's issue
there was an article headed, "Price
Cutting Hurts Growers." By some
means the report got abroad that the
White Salmon Fruit Union was doing
tbe cutting.
As secretary of tbe White Salmon
union most of the correspondence
passes through my hands, and 1 have
letters to show that this report is on
true. I will forfeit one hundred do
lars if I cannot produce tbe original
letters from which 1 quote.
On May 10 we were getting M.OO per
crate f. o. b. Hood River, from Ana
conda, Mont. A letter dated the 17th
says: "We are quoted Hood Kiver
berries at (3.50 f. o. b. Hood Kiver
and m 111 allow you tbe same on the
Gtb that we received tonight. " There
was a delibreate cutting under tb
market price.
From a letter from Kalispell, Mont.,
dated May 22, we quote:
"We have your letter of May 2(tb
and note what you say in regard to
berries bringing (.'1.50 ber crate at
Hood River. You must bo In error
on this, as we have quotations same
date from Hood River at Ct.OO and
our competitors have been shipping
berries here at (.'1.75. We have had
to bill all lmrrios at Ct.OO f. o. b.
your place. We had quotations Fri
day morning from one grocer at Hood
River at CI 00." Another writes same
date, May 22: "Also in regard to
price, the two crates today were billed
at (3.25, while Hood River billed some
in on the same train at (:t.00. If 1
hold the trade for you, your price
must be the same. "
Another of same date from Ana
conda: "Berries from Hood River quoted
(.'1.00 today, are allowing you the
same." We also billed the berries to
this party at Ci.50 per crate.
A letter from Grand Forks, I). C,
of May 21, says:
"We wrote you on the 18th lust, rel
ative to a rebate ou two crates ol
strawberries invoiced at (4.50 per
crate. We would like to hoar from
yoii In regard to this matter before
shipping any more berries. We con
sider that we are entitled to a rebate
of $1.00 per crato. " The cause of this
letter was a party from Hood River
sending several firms berries on tbe
same day for (150.
Letter from Halt Luke City under
date of May 24 says: "We had all of
our borrios sold at $5.00, but had not
made deliveries. Martin, Rash &
Hunoook went on the market advising
the trade that they would have Hood
River berries, also some from private
parties, and would sell at $4.00, and
that we were holding up the trade.
Not knowing how many they would
receive, we were forced to meet these
prioea to hold our trade and keep our
A telegram of May 24 reads: "Mar
tin out market from five to four. Mar
ket now four-fifty."
The White Malmou I'm It Union was
organized for the purpose of care
fully distributing the berries that the
market might be kept up. When tbe
Hood River berries began to come
ou the market C. P. Ross personally
went to the Davidson Co. and to the
Hood River Fruit Growers union and
made the proposition that they keep
the market up by quoting together
each day. Mr. Davidson said lie was
willing to do this, but the manager of
the II. R. F. G. U. said he had to see
the board of directors.
The White Salmon Fruit Union is
a mutual organization. Each mem
ber has the interest of the union ut
heart, and the union exists for the
benefit of each shipper. It Is ther -
fore to the advantage of the union to
uphold the prices, for each shipper
personally receives the benefit. Our
board of directors are every shipper.
To voluntarily cut prices is to volun
tarily reduce their Incomes. It is not
natural to do this. Our manager is
under the supervision of the hoard of
directors. All books, returns, etc.,
are open at all times, not only to the
board of directors, lint to each indi
vidual shipper. There is absolutely
no room for crooked work. Besides
the net returns for eaoh day's ship
ment are averaged and divided pro
rata with eaoh shipper according to
the number of orates he has shipped,
so that not one, but all, must lose
by cutting of prices. Both from tbe
facts of the case and from natural
reasons It will tie seen that whoever is
doing the cutting it Is not tbe White
Salmon Fruit union.
Respectfully yours,
