Navittation oompuny wuh in Hood
Hirer Monday. Hi) was seen at bin
hotel liy a (llaeier representative and
askoil as to new developments in the
proposal now road. "Tell mo sum s
tliinK that is positive?" ho was asked.
"I'lio only positive tiling that 1
know, is that a road is Koiu dow n the
north hank of the (.'ulnmliia river. 1
am sure of that, liy w hom 1 cannot
say and if 1 knew I would (li.-clo.so.
lint yon can iv?t. assured of one feat
ure and that is that a road is to he
litiilt. 1 am l uck hero and el ision up
all the deals w heio we have contracts.
1 am netting all I lie deeds possililv
mid have lieen attempting to K"t other
contracts, Imt in many instances have
lieen held iip.owini,' to the owners tak
ing advantage of the situation and at
temptitiK to "hold ns up." 1 have
talked to most all the owners and ex
plained to them that it is to their ad
vantage to close with me, for I am
confident that 1 w ill ivo them more
than double they will tiot if wo are
forced to innatinurato condemnation
proceedings. The sectirhiK of a riht
of way has been a serious task. There
are too many of tho ranchers who are
holding out in hopes of securing
prices to thei" 1 nd that is all nut of
reason. 1 have attempted to he fuir
with I hem and in many cases have
ottered pi ices that are far in excess of
tho real value.
"Of course 1 have been handicapped
to a certain extent in not beitiK able
to just tell w here the stakes of tho new
survey will ho. Our eti(ineoniiK
corps is working as fast as possible,
but it will bo some weeks before the
engineer will be able to net in at this
point. It nitty be possible that when
be does come, and the chniiKOM made
in the old survey that we are now fol
lowing that 1 will have smoother mil
iii and will allow me an opportunity
of tolling the ow ners just whore wo are
Kointf to and just what we are n
itu to do."
Mr. U plight left ou Monday evening
for White Salmon to take the matter
up with those who have been holding
out for more money. The Krontest
stumbling block that has so far been
encountered by those securing a ri'lit
of way, is the lack of a delinite ex
pression of just what will be done.
Homo hold out and demand that a de
pot be placed on tho farm. If a depot
was placed on every farm where it is
desired the stations alotiK the new
road, supposed to lie the Northern
l'aoille, would lie about every farm.
Owiiin to tho hili prices t.'utt are
boiiiK placed upon a Knmt deal of tho
land it is sttKcsted that tho assessor
w ill be one of the busy individuals
when it comes time to make the as
sessment. If the assessol Hhould at
tempt to assess the land at prices held
by many who have been solicited for
a right of way, it is a foregone con
clusion that a serious proposition
would be confronted.

In almost every new settlement

the planting of the family orchard fol
lowed close after tho building of the
home. Pajaro was no exception to
the rule, as we find that an orchard
was planted as early as 1853, shortly
after the llrst American settlor locat
ed here, lu thote early planting-, tho
apple generally had first place. This
proved the case here, also, aud the
early aettler in selecting his trees for
the family orchard aimed generally to
secure a gieat variety of applea. This
was a wise proceedure, as there was no
other means of determining what va
rieties were best adapted to tho liKial
ity and the resuts of the tests proved
of valuo in planting later years.
Though all tho known varieties can
be produced in the Pajaro district,
all do not attain a high standard of
excellence, and some prove a dissap
pointineut. Summer apples, though
the product is of excellent quality are
not raised to any extent because they
ripen when the markets are gutted
with over summer fruits, and conse
