A elder aud vinegar factory wants
to locate at Hood River. Hani P.
Jones, vice president of Jones Bros. &
Co., manufacturers of cider and vine
ear at Louiuille. Ky., wag in tbe city
one day last week, aud outlined his
proposition to Mr. lilancbar, presi
dent of the Hood Kiver Comercial
A mcetiiiK of the members of the
Couiurcialcliib was held Monday even
ing, when the subject was informally
discussed. Tbe proposition met with
favor with the business men, it being
recognized as an excellent opportunity
for the fruit growers to dispose of
their second grado fruit, much of
which now goes to waste, but which,
if carefully bandied, could be made
a paying by-product of the orchard
and berry fields.
It is epxected that Mr. Jones will be
here later to present the matter in
person to tbe people of Hood Kiver.
The date and time of meeting will be
mado known, and every farmer in tbe
valley is invited to be present and
hear what Mr. Jones has to oifer
them. His proposition as presented
to Mr. lilunchar was substantially as
follows :
