WAS THE BEST
THEY HAD SEEN
"On our journey from Chicago."
said Colonel Moore, president of the
National Good Koads assewiation, "we
visited the principal cities and valleys
along the great trans continental rail
way, and after arriving west of the
Rocky mountains we proclaimed ea h
valley and city as the best we had ever
seen. Wheu we visited Hood River
with its beautiful healthful location.
and made a detour of IS or 20 miles
up the Hood Kiver and through the
valley into tho dense pine forests,
traveling through thousands of acres
of apples, cherries, peaches, strawber
ries and oilier fruits, we reached the
climax. Coming down the east side
road we viewed the Hood River val
ley, containing more than CiO.OXHl acres
of fertile land, more favorably located
and watered by the melting snows of
old Mount Hood, than - any other re
gion w i have visited in our 15 years
of travel in promoting the improve
ment of tho piiliiio highwuvs ot ttie
several states and territories.
"The possibilities of your section
are unlimited. I prophesy that within
til years tho great valley lying lietween
Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams will bo one
vast agricultural field, embracing
thousands of families and dotted with
truck farms, orchards, vineyards, cer
eals and stock. Cozy homes, school
houses, churches and factories will lie
a prominent feature of your future
assets.
"We shall not forget your people
"We shall not forget your valley.
"Let me admonish you to
" 'Work on, work on,
Work wears the world away.
Hope when tomorrow comes,
Hut work today.
Work on, work on,
Work brings its own relief ;
He who most idle is,
Has the most of gtief. ' "
HERE, "VALLEY
OF CONTENT
Colonel T. P. Ri.xey, of Missouri,
wheu askod as to his impressions of
the city of Hood Kiver and the sur
rounding country, very willingly ex
pressed himself as follows:
"An American cannot know too
much of hiscountry and its wonderful
resources, the character and stability
of its citizenship, the fertility of its
soil and climatic conditions. Fortun
ate indeed is the man who has been
blessed with opportunity of traveling,
not in foreign countries, but in all
portions of the United States. We
have visited nearly all the states and
territories; in each of them we have
found much to commend and of which
the citizens have a just right to be
proud, many of thorn having much
which others fail to possess, in the
aggregate making a community and
composed of people the most favored
and greatest ou earth. Without dis
paraging any, but feeling tho greatest
pride in all, we are free to confess
that in no place have we found such
a combination of favorable and happy
conditions as iu the Hood Kiver val
ley and the country surrounding the
wonderful little city of Hood River,
Oregon, situated at tho conjunction
of the Columbia river as it flows to
the ocean, and tho Hood river with
its pure crystal water; with the snow
capped mountains of Mount Hood
and Mount Adams standing as senti
nels, dispelling disease and driving
away from its victims relentless death ;
the "fragrance of the tallest pines in
the world freighting the air with their
healing balm, mines of untold wealth
in the mountain sides; soil, in its fer
tility rivaling that of thj Nile; the
noatiioss and beauty of its urban
homes. As we looked upon the hun
dreds of acres of luscious strawberries
and the prolific orchards of apples,
pears, cherries and other fruits, wav
ing fields of grain, and the most beau
tiful and fragrant tiowers in the world,
we felt that we bad at last looked upon
the "valley of content."
"If tho thousands and hundreds of
thousands of men who are seeking a
place where they can realize the acme
of life "Contentment" knew of your
city and your most incomparable peo
ple, city and country, then would
con e to you the lest people of the
East, North and South, seeking for
he.dlh, Laprhie'S and a bountiful re
turn for efforts vn -ted in many less
favored sections rf our country which
they no'v call home. It is for tho peo
ple of your city and county, by per
sonal and organized efforts of private
aud public improvement, thereby be
coming benefactors, and tho human
family, the liest of whom God will
bless liecause they lieautifled and
adorned bis earth and love their fel
lowmen You have a good people, a
wonderful country; you should lie
thankful. We will never forget all the
kindness shown us, the pleasures we
enjoy and the anticipations of the fu
ture." .
Supplied Them With Badges,
The beautiful badges worn by the
good roads ottlcinls while in this city
were presented by W. R. Winans.
Printed on rich red ribbon were the
words: "Mount Hood Avalanche
Club. Winans City, Hood River Val
ley, Oregon.
"With bav, hogs, sheep and cattle,
And fruits and lumber grand,
We make the money rattle,
I Aud er.sy beat the band."
i Attached to the badge was a photo
graph of the gold mounted mountain
lUu's claw, which Mr, Winans pos
sesses as a memento of the chase. Al
together the badge was a very effec
tive souvenir.
"AGITATE" SAYS
REV. DR. LOUCKS
"After n visit to Hood River Valley,
and receiving the courtesies of your
worthy citizens, my impiessions as to
the improved conditions which will
advance your country to a high degree
of development can bo properly
summed up as follows," said Welling
ton E. Lourks to n Glacier reporter:
"To the cast of the river is a steady
up grade iu the road which lends un
der tho brow of the hill, and in many
places it needs to be w idened, and the
eutire surface should be brought to a
more even grade to make tho road
more practical. The jolts and jars of
bringing fruit on that long incline
must certainly injure it to a greater
extent than should be allowed. The
efforts of the road otlicials should be
directed to this road as it is a practi
cal highway for future development.
The efforts of the road officials of pre
cinct No. ti to improve this road show
a most commendable result, and if
the same scientific, methods are fol
lowed in after ye rs, this rend will
become a practical roadway for trans
portation, aud will also I e a delight fill
driveway for the increasing number
of touristjj who seek your beautiful
city.
"The road west of tho river is in
bad condition on account of the very
steep grades which make it more and
more expensive to fruit growers, and
in the damage which will be done in
moving tho crops. The material used
for surfacing the first mile and a half
or two mileis is of excellent quality,
aud after exami ling tho r i or gravel,
1 find that with proper screening, 1
believe it will prove to be excellent
road material, especially for surfac
ing. "These two roads make such a loop
in tho Hood Valley as that their per
manent improvement should lie tho
objective point for the expenditure of
road money, aud I shall watch with
greatest interest the progress of your
community as it rises up to this im
portant requirement. You will see
that I am also taking into account the
advantaegs which Hood Kivro possess
es, as a resort, and you will find that
the class of people which seeks out the
delightful atmosphere and genial cli
mate of your valley will becomo a
basis of supply of capital and funds
needed to make these larger develop
ments. "Most certainly, on the map of this
country, there is no point wihc.h lias
impressed me more favorably for a
bright and profitable future than lias
Hood Kiver, and I bear with mo most
pleasant memories of our stop in your
city. The practical point before your
people is to agitate for good roads and
develop a spirit of harmony in action,
so that w hen we return to make the
demonstration in building tho model
section of road your Goo t Koads As
sociation will have all the necessary
funds to prosecute it to a good fulfill
ment." GUESTS SUNDAY OF
THE WINANS BROS.
Eerly Sunday morning and prompt
ly at 7 o'clock the members of the na
tional good roads party ooariiod a
four-horse carry-all from the fashion
stables, with liert Stranahan in the
driver's seat, and were olf for the
Devil s Punch Howl at the falls of
Hood river, where they were the
guests of the Winans Iiros.
The day was ideal in every respect.
Not a cloud obstructed the hills and
distant snow peaks. The air seemed
navored with nectar. As the miles uf
berry fields and clover meadows came
into view after the Indian creek biidge
was passed, the Eastern visitors began
to draw on their bountiful supply of
superlatives, which it took but a short
time to exhaust.
"We have found somovery beautiful
and attractive valleys since leaving
Chicago," said Colonel Moore, "but
1 am foiced to admit that this excels
them all in its many points of excel
lence. "
It was a jolly bunch aboard the
wagonette. There were some excel
lent voiceis, too, and it wasn't long
until they broke into song. The good
roads anthem, "Why is the Wildcat
Wild?" pleased those who had not
heard it before, but when a turn in
the road brought into view tho lieubili
bind orchards, the tune switched to
"There is a hind that is fairer than
day," etc. Beyond the Tucker bridge
the swaying pines overhead made a
music uf their own, while hugging
close onto the hank which kept the
road from slipping into the water was
the surging torrents of Hood river.
A break in tho forest and a cultivated
field appeared filled with waving grain
and sending up tho fragrance of now
mown hay. Everywhere was there a
scene to delight the eyes of the visit
ors. The city of Winans, tho terminal of
the drive, was reached slnutly after !l
o'clock. Here Michael Nell and his
camera were met with, and the party
lined up beside the big llr: and was
photographed. Tho journey to tho
falls and the punch bowl was continued
on foot.und another photograph taken
of thoie of tho party who defended
the rocky precipice to the brink of the
pool
Old Sol whs high in the heavens
when the party reached the Winans
residence, in the dining lomn stood
tho table covered with an array of
tempting dishes prepared by the skil
ful hands of Mrs. Winans ami daiigh
tors. The call to dinner was promptly
answered, and the way the good things
disappeared was not slow.
This was Senator Dodge's second
trip to Winans, and he was not con
tent to return this time i it bout a
climb i tho top of the bills rn the
west side of tlio ri'.ir. 'll.oie who
took this side trip ui.chi I their car
at 12 o'clock at night.
Those in t i e party were Hon. W. II.
Moore, lion. Charles II. Canlield of
Cleveland; Hmi. Martin C. Dodge, of
Washington, D. C. ; Colonel T. P.
Rixey. of Missouri; Hon. William

The services Sunday n.oiuing at
Riverside Congregational church were
in accord with the good road move
ment that was the topic of the hour.
The Rev. W. C. Gilmore spoke from
the theme "Cultivating tho Capacity
to Enjoy Life. ' It was an ideal Sun
day morning and the sermon was such
as to make all feel glad they were liv
ing in a land that nature had endowed
so lavishly. He alluded to the bene

J. C. Hvberger ou Friday of last

the White Salmon Lund company, his
ten acre ranch in the Cook settlement
forl,.VXt. Mr. Hyberger had owned
the laud but two years and this season
took otf iu the neighborhood of 70U
worth of berries. He paid ."t (or tho
ranch, showing the possibilities iu
laud speculation in this section. Mr.
and Mrs. Hyberger will not leave the
locality, but on the other hand will
secure another site.
Among the new arrivals are Mr.
and Mrs. G. C. Jennings, of Irrigou,
Ore. They have opened a restaurant
iu tho Mrs. Green building. Mrs.
Jennings is a splendid cook and all
can be assured that they will get splen
did service at the new eating house.
A lunch counter will be added aud
meals served regularly. A first class
baker has been employed r.nd fresh
bread, pies and cakes will be baked
daily. This fills a long felt want in
While Salmon. It clearly shows that
the town is growing aud ti nt before
the summer is over there will lie many
other additions in a business way.
