No more acaly or infected fruit can be
Hold in the markets of Portland. The
tratlic. branded bv the Legislature aa il
lcurtl. baa been brought to a atop, and
the firat atop taken toward improving
the quality of the orchard products of
the Htate and at the aauie time protect'
ing Hie consumer.
A local fruit inapector Jma been ap
pointed, who began work Saturday
morning bv condemning a mans ol un
wholesome stuff at the Hu.a market,
says a Cortland paper. There wore five
tons of apples, peaches, penrs and apri
cots in the lot aeizctl, all ol wlncn was
immediately sent to the creamatory,
The fruit was brought in by fanners liv
ing east of Portland and in Clackamaa
countv. It was badly infested with
scale, and Borne of it was positively dis
gutting in appearance. Had not the
nalo been stopped, the stuff would have
been boughtby Italian and Chinese ped
tilers, hawkers and retail grocerymen
and by this time moat of it would have
been consumed by persons ignorant of
its true quality. There was much sur
prise and indignation on the part of the
growers, cut tliey couiu notdootnerwise
than obey the orders of the insiiector
and see their scaly produce dumped into
eariiage wagons.
The new local fruit inspector is James
II. IujkI, who is working under the or
ders of District Commissioner W. K.
Newell of the Htate Hoard of Horticul
ture. Mr. Keid is well qualified by ex
perience for the work, and is determin
ed to Bee that the law governing this
matter is rigidly enforced, lie will not
confine his inspection solely to the pub
lic market at tlie 1'laxa blocks, out will
see that the law is obeyed on Front
street as well, lie has given the jobWt
notice of his intentions, but will not be
gin examining fruit on the street until
the middle of the week. That will give
the dealers time to dispose of stocks al
ready bought, and will enable them to
modify orders already placed at Han
ranciflco for shipment by the steamer
due here Wednesday.
The fact that California, Waahington
and Idaho maintain a strict inspection
service has caused Portland to lie used
as a dumping ground for all diseased
fruit that cannot be sold in those states.
Clackamas and some of the other conn
ties that will not permit the sale of fruit
that is infected have also been sending
uch fruit here for disiiosal. All this
will now step, and the people of Port
land can rest assured that the fruit they
buy from now on will he healthy. The
natural result of the law, and that for
which it was originally intended, will be
tlie improvement ol Oregon a orchards,
which will give the fruit of this state
once more the fine reputation that it
once held.
The wholesale fruit merchants of
Front street are almost unanimously in
favor of the new law. They believe it
wilt work some hardships at first, but
they realize that in the end it will prove
most beneficial.
"The law is certainly something we
should have bad long ago," said Mark
I-evy. "Kvery day tons of fruit are
brought in covered with the San Jose
scale and codlin moth, fruit that is ab
solutely unlit to eat. As long as the
farmer is permitted to shove in such
stuff, it keeps the price of good fruit
down. When the price of fruit becomes
so cheap, there is no encouragement
whatever for the man who tries to rail
good fruit. If the grower is satisfied
that he will get a good price for his pro
duct, he will be more (Imposed to use
care in the cultivation of his orchard."
Charles Davenport thinks the Inspec
tit hi is a good thing. "It means that
there will lie better orchards in the
state in the future," he said. "We
would sooner see no poor fruit at all on
the street.
"This law will have the effect of weed
ing out the poor, indifferent grower,"
said (ieorge l'earsoii. "When a man
can find a good market for good fruit,
ho will be more willing to spray hit
troes and try to improve the fruit. We
are heartily in favor of the law, and
think it will lie a good thing for the
state at large."
"In the end the law will be all right
for us," said John Koskey, "but, of
course, it will hit us hard at first, par
ticularly on California fruit. Anything,
However, that will cause a hetntr oual
ity of fruit to lie grown will be betler
for all concerned.
"The inspection of fruit on this mar
ket," said John Hell, "will lw an excel
lent thing for the orchard industry ol
Oregon. There is too much disease in
the orchards and we want to see it
eradiculed, Conditions lately have been
growing worse every year. '
V. II. (llafke thinks the law will be
a good thing in one way, but bad In an
other. "It will mean," he nald, "that
we will have better fruit on this market
and that Portland will no longer be the
dumping-ground ol other sections, w hue
gooil fruit is sent to markets where they
have inxpcctorH. It will he a had tlimj

"I think the law should work well
and reHiilt in great good," said J. II.
Page. "It will cause some immediate
injury to some growerB, hut will even
tually lie of great advantage to the
turmerH, as it will educate them Up to
growing good fruit."
Inspector Held received his appoint
inent Friday evening. The law under
w hich he is working has liccn on the
aliitue Ikioks for some years, hut wan
only made operative by an appropria
tion ai inc last session or the legisla
ture. When the great betelits ot the
fruit-inspectioii act are considered, the
cost seems very small. His not be
lieved that the expense of the entire in-
HiK'elion service of the stale will exceed

last year spent $0,tHK for the inspection

tary Wilson further asserts that the
bank deosits in the agricultural states
are growing faster than in the manufac
turing states. Thus from June :tu, is'.Ml,
to October 31. 1904, while the increase
for the entire country as 01 percent
itself a proof of astonishing national
prosperity the gain in bank deposits in
Iowa was KM per cent, in Kansas L'10
per cent and in Mississippi 301 percent
In view of this advance one is not sur
prised to learn that the average month
y wages paid farm laborers throughout
the country increased Irom 3. 1 i 111
1885 to $22.14 ill 1902, the last year for
which the data have been completed
Thev are undoubtedly higher today.
Turning to specific crops, Mr. Ilewes
analyzes the growth in these from 1850
to 1900. pointing out tie) influences of
growing population and manufactures,
of railway development, government sci
entific work in improving seed and the
other factors that mould the agricultur
al output. There iH room here merely
to quote hiH summary f'r the greater
food crops: Corn increased Irom .V.12,-
000,(KX) bushels in 1 8.' I to 2,ir.i0,000,oii0
in 1900. ('lhe corn crop was approxi
mately 2,000,000,000 last year. I The
same half century saw the oats cr.
grow from 147,000,000 bushels to 811,
000,0(10,000 bushels. The wheat yield
increased from 100,090,000 bushels to
632,000,000 bushels. The production of
potatoes increased from 0ll,lXKI,0lKI hush-
els to 273,0OO,OtHI husliels. liarley rose
from 5,000,000 to 85,000,000 bushels.
Agricultural (irenth.
The magic that lurks in the apparent
ly dry pages of crop report statistics has
never heeu more vividly exhibited than
in a remarkable paper by F. W. ilewes
In the current Harper's Weekly, the
tirst of a series of articles on Fifty
Years of Progress in America," It is an
attempt to "take account of stock" in
the farm industry of the country to
answer questions which every one asks
but for w hich few have the putience or
the means at hand to seek out answers.
After outlining the agricultural de
velopment since the earliest settlement
on the Atlautic coast, Mr. Ilewes cites
data collected by the department of ag
riculture showing that the annual in
crease in the value of American farms
ami farm property during the four years
passed since the census of 1900 has leeii
I 00,000,000.
The secretary of agriculture is quoted
as authority for the startling declara
tion that all tl e gold mined in the world
since the time of Columbus (which total
by the way, according to estimates by
the I'nited States mint, is approximate
ly 11,300,000,000) would not pay for the

interesting and instructive of the big

It was 29 years ag 11 June '-'", 1870,
that Custer and bis troopers rode info
the death trap on the Little 'ig Horn
river. Shortly after crossing the river,
hundreds of Sioux attacked the little
baud, which resisted heroically, making
a last stand in a haud-lo-hand contest
in which every trooper was killed. The
survivor of the dreadful massacre w as a
trumpeter whom Custer hail sent, early
in the fray, to Major for re-ln-forccmenta.
The reproduction at the Lewis and
Clark exposition will have for its loca
tion a plot of ground on the government
peninsula in Guild's Luke, near the riv
er entrance to the fair. The lay of the
ground at this place is similar to the
geography of the liittle Ilig Horn, ami
this circumstance will add much to the
interest of the bloodless massacre. In
