OF II. R. C. CLUB
CLOSES YEAR IN GOOD CONDITION
Several Clianes Siiificoslod f r (iootl of
the Club Trusters F.leeted antl
The hii until meeting of the Commer
cial Club was hold Thui'sly evetiiiiR
wlto a moderate aueutlanee. 1 he ou
ject of the meetlue was to elont seven
tiuatees for tbe ensuing year. The
reports of the secretary ami treasurer
were read and accepted. Tbe follow
ing were elected trustees: Truman
Butlef, V. O. Brock, Coo. K. Wil
liams, J. L. llend 'rsoii, l' A. Cram,
11. r. uavldHOu and A. I. .Mod
The club closes its year iu the bet
oonditlou aince tbe organization was
started. All bills are paid and there
Is a balance hi both the generul und
advertising Minis, una bliowmg is
especially gratifying to the out :oing
board, aa their successor: may t-tai t
with clean sheet.
following the election of trustees.
an Informal talk was indulged In re
garding the changing of the meeting
night, the adrisibil'ty uf lowering the
dues, aud plans tor the lutiire.
V. U. llrock staled tu it the regular
monthly meeting for members was
h'ld on Tuesday evening, which con
flicted with other meetings ou the
same night and would like to see the
general mee lug held on the same
night of tbo tnit-tees' imc-ti ig. It of
ten happened that there Mia nothing
to bring tbe members out ou the spe
olal night, while at the regular uight
for the trustees' meeting there would
be sure to be some ut.u there, and
also some matters of general interoht.
this met with general favor, and it
wag left to tbe trustees to do as they
Tbe question of malting t ho titles ?1
or $U a year was ditcussoil with much
interest. Mr. Outbank thought it
advisable to mttki tho dues as light as
possible, as he bad found it dilliotilt
to collect from a good many ou that
Mr. Butler thought that it was best
to have an amount stillicleiit to have
a little surplus instead ot being barely
able to make both ends meet, us it
would make It much easier for the
club to do busiuess if they could pay
as they went along. While it was a
fact that the burden of the work and
expense of the club fell ou a few, and
the whole city aud country received
like beuotit, yet it was one ot those
matters which the few could not
afford to drop just becaii.se the many
beueuttetl would not do their share.
He was in favor of keeping tbe dues
wheie they were.
Mr. Uoir said that he hud lived lu
Albany, Ore., for sixteen yeurs, and
It was only in the last five years that
they had had a commercial body.
Before that tbe town was divided into
factions, aud on this account, with
no eUeeiive organization to woik to
gather for the good of the city, they
bad lost many opportunities of secur
ing public bouebts, new i ml iihI i ich,
etc. Since the organization of the
business men's association, many old
feuds hail been patched up, and the
city was enjoying many advantages
through tbe ell oris of the association
which they would nevei-liavo hail. He
thought that the club here Hbonld be
keot up at any cost. Alt. 1 ill said
that an occasional luiiioiiet was held
at Albany and this tuotight out aud
kept Into line many who could not
be reached iu any other way. It also
developed better social relations be
tween the business men.
Mr. lirngg heartily endorsed the
bauuuet idea, an 1 suggested that a
banquet be given at the installation
of the new members, and invitations
extended to the Imsine.- n oti and
those iu tbo count iy who a e interest
ed and help iu tbe promoting ot the
interests of tbe city aud valley. That
an Invitation be extended to Tom
Richardson of Portland, antl perhaps
some others who would help enthuse

by tbe club in calling together tbe
citizens to meet with Representative
Jayne In drafting bills for Die amend

enabled tbe city council to pass a
sewer ordinance with less chance of
defeat, and also gives power to so.l

club was also in-trumeiital iu starting
tbe fight fur Cascade county, which
was so ably managed by our represen

although defeated, kept Uood Uiver

28 acres. Mr. aud Mrs. Laraway have
been moving their furniture Into town
aud are lilting up rooms over their
jewelry store. They expect to remain
in (ileuwood until after the holidays
at least and may remain all winter,
Mr. Laraway has invested considera

Uiver district In Oregon and is veiy
much takon witb that countiy.
The salo of the farm was made by
his son Seth, wbo baa charge of the
business here. The Laraway place
has long been known as oue of tbe
best kept and best paying fruit farms
in this locality. It is beautifully sit

of the war.
At that time bis grandfather was
aged 07 and the grandson 15.

MANY ADVANTAGES TO SUCH PLAN
Advocated by Supt. e(T and Prof. Wi
ley Would be Economical and
Bring Desirable Residents
to Hood River.
The time is fast coming when tbe
scho.il facilities of tbe valley will be
taxed to their utmost and in order to
be prepared foi an emergency It would
seem that tho best idea is to take hold
of the matter now and not wait until
there is no provision for tbe education
of pupils in the higher grades.
A plan advocated by Supt. Neff and
endorsed by Prof. Wiley, aa outlined
iu au article printed below, ia to have
a central high school located at Uood
River, which will be amnlv lanra
euough to accomodate tbe pupils of
the advanced grades throughout the
valley. The cost of an educational
system ot this kind would be reduced
to a minimum, by the large number
wbo would share the expense, and the
comprehensive scope of its education
al fea 11 res would lie widened to an ex
tent that can be done in no other way.
The prestige thut would aoorue to
Hood River aud its environment
through the maintenance of a high
school (hat would be second to none
iu the stuto, would mnuy times com
pensate tho taxpayers for anv outlav
of money spent this way.
There is probably no way to attract
tbe t etter class of citizens to a town
or oity than through ita schools.
There is no Question moie near to the
heart of every good American citizen
than the education of his children. A
'lue school for tbe higher grades,
coupled witb the many other attrac
tions and advantages of tho Hood
River valley would be the means of
bringing the most desirable class of
residents that could be had to this
section of country.
In discussing tbe matter Prof. Wi
ley says :
"believing much of tbe aucceaa In
fruit and berry raising In Uood River
valley to be duo to tbe eagerness with
which 01, r people in general seem to
stick after the very best methoda and
the persistency with which our local
papers koop the people reminded of .
our advantages aud tbe successful tale
of our fruits, I am prompted to tele
space to present some thoughts ou
the school outlook.
"We all know how well and favor
ably known ia our valley for the fer
tility of soil, tho abundance of fruit
and the beauty of its farm homes.
We are as particularly favored with
regard to educational advantages If
we but rise to the occasion.
" W have no teas than 11 va d lair lots,
triyng as bast we can to keep oar
boys and girls at home and give them
a High school education. Wouldn't
it be a wiser plan instead of building
on to our crowded buildings to make
room for one or two high school
grades, taught by an over worked
principal, to unite and build one
large, modern, uptodate High Sohool
building and employ none but spe
cialists as teachers?
"Superintendent Ackeiman has re
peatedly said iu dilfereut parts of tbe
state that no section in tbe whole
state presents so many conditions fa
vorable to consolidation of sohool dis
tricts as Hood River valley. The dis
tricts adjoining Newberg have consol
idated and bring tbe children to
school iu large covered wagons at the
expense of the district. Can we not
choose a location for a high sohool
and provide some means of transpor
tation? Why uie not our boys and
girls entitled to justaag-od advan
tages aud opportunities as the boys
and girls in Portland or anywhere
elsei Let's have one school board,
une city or valley superintendent,
(and when Cascade county is organ
ized iu January 1!K)7, make the county
and the valley superintendent one and
the same oltlce) and one oentral high
school. This suggestion has bean
heartily endorsed by Superintendent
Ackeruiau, Superintendent Neff, Su
perintendent Landers and all other
educators to whom it has been pre
sented as "The Ideal Condition."
"We would be surpassed by no schools
in tho state, not even Portland, for
wo would expect to have Borne strictly
lirst class superintendent of a wide
aud successful experience equal to
our best city superintendents.
"Our present consolidation law, to
my mind, provides for just what we
need. If the consolidation plan
doesn't suit everybody's idea then
lot's have a valley high sohool estab
lished by popular vots and malntaiued
by tbe valley taxpayers just as tbe five
county high schools of the state are
"This is not a plea to get a fine new
high school building for the Hood
River city schools, have the valley
pay for it aud assume our present in
debtedness. We will pay our indebt
edness as fust as the bonds are due,
consolidation or no consolidation.
We have now an enrollment in our
high school of 00 and more than 40 in
tbe 8th grade and have oo'.tem'lated
a full four years course next year with
100 pupils, but why not join inter
ests? Lot's talk aud agitate tbe ques
tion till our ideal ia reached, then
we can watch "our valley" and not
tho Washington city grow, for nothing
will do more to bring us the desirable
homeseekors than these school condi
tions. They can be brought about
before another year if we want them.
They are coming soon, why not have
them next year?"
