In Another column will be found a
very pertinent article on the produc
tion and side of wormy fruit. That
there are two sidos to this mutter, as
in everything eke, moat be apparent to
every fair minded person. We do not,
however, think it la the intention of
couwjifintioob growers to woik hard
ship! to any one in their contention
for a rigid censorship of dofoctive
fruit. Their intention is, we think,
for a remedy rather than a kill-all.
How strongly a lot or houxe, that
can be sewered, appeals to prospective
buver of property in this city was
demonntrated here this week. A
gentleman who came here to look at
some property with the object in view
of building, was taken to a portion of
the city to look at some lots that were
In every way apparently desirable.
Suddenly he turned to the gentleman
who whs acting as bis guide and said,
"Will the new sewer reach these lots?"
"No,", said bis companion, "it won't
come this far." "lu that rase," said
tbe prospective buyer, "I wouldn't
have n lot here at any price. Take me
to a part of ttio city which will be
sewered." No stronger object lesson
can be wanted than this of the benefits
of a sewor system.
The appointment of John Al. Uearln
as United States Senator by Gov.
Chamberlain was not unexpected.
Mr. (learln Is a Democrat and had
strong backing for the position. In
fact, he had the backing that U. S.
Seuatois from this state have had for
many years the law firm of Dolph,
Simon, Mullory & Gcarln, History
repeats itself, it is snid, and this Is
the proof of it. Senator Gcariu has
made a etatemout for publication, part
of which is as follows :
"It shall be my best endeavor to
represent the whole state of Oregon,
without respect to any section or dis
trict. I am a native of Oregon, am
proud of her commercial and indus
trial achievements, and my every
effort will bo to assist in their further
If ho does this be will have done
IlrilKuni Hut ii re for lined River,
Tom liiohardson, secretary and
manager of ttio Commercial olnb. of
Portland, and Frederick Hootford, a
traveling representative for "Out
ing," arrived in town on train 2 Mon
day, They were met at the station
by E. I j. Sinitli, whoso guests they
wore while bore.
It was the intention of ttio visiting
gentlemen to have driven over the
valley for a poop at tho apple or
chards, but the fact that tboir time
was limited and tho inclemency of the
weather causod them to postpone this
trip until some, othtir time.
Mr. Kiohardson and Mr. Hootford
were taken about town by Mr. Smith
and introduced to the members of the
local Commercial Club, and nn im
promptu meeting of the club called
for '2 o'clock.
Although tho notice was short, there
were quite a good many mom tiers
present at thatUmo, and 11. J. David
son waw selected us ohiiinimn of tho
meeting. Mr. Davidson, in a few
well chosen word, welcomed the vis
itors to the club, aud Mr. Smith stat
ed that the meeting was called to hear
a word of cheer from Mr. Hcotford
and Mr. Richardson. Chairman Dav
idson then called on the gontlemen to
respoud and they both compiled with
Mr. Kcotford spoke first and said
that "Outing" iu.the February limn
ber would publish au article (lescrln
tive of Hood River and the valley and
after giving his impressions of the
dilierenae between the West and Fast.
he read excerpts from the advance
proof shoots of tho article, it paid a
glowing tribute to tho valley and the
apple raising industry as conducted
linre, and to tho residents of this sec
tiou also. It told about the tine mini
Ity of the apples, the care with which
they were packeil, the Jul'Ii price oh
taiued for them aud the causes that
led up to the high standard obtaiuod
Mr, Hcotford concluded with golden
praise for the scenic attractions oi the
Columbia and Hood Klver country
and said that If its beauty could t
brought to tho attention of the weal
thy tourists and Hportsmeu of the
hast a mo-it prosperous future was in
store for It. and Unit with nroiinr fa
cilities for reaching Mount Hood it
would become one of the must popular
nouns or interest in the world. JUr,
Sootford's remarks were appreciated
aud he was given tho glad hand when
Mr. Klohardxon wn called upon and
sai 1 so munv uood things about Hood
Klver that if the gentlemen present
nnd not had their liats olf tbeie would
have beeu au explosion. Among other
things, however, he said he had never
seen such a successful demonstration
of what unity of purpose could no-
compllHh as has been done iu the apple
business in Jlood Klver. lie told
abou' lelng In Los Angeles where or
anges were selling for three dozen for
a quarter, with Hood River apples
right alongside of thorn at three tor a
quarter. He paid tribute to tho
hustling qualities of Hood Rivoritcs
aud told a story about seeing a man
from this city sUuding on a corner
in Portland list summer during the
busiest time of the fair when the
streets were crowded and reminded
him he said of (tie famous thorough
fares of New Yoik, Chicago, London
or Paris. Tho Hood Kivcr limn wore
a bored expression, and when Mr.
Klchardhon approached him and asked
what whs the matter, ho replied:
"Nothing the matter, hut this is aw
ful dull for a Hood Kivcr man."
The eloquent visitor wound up his
talk by Buying that tho many scenic
beauties of the couutry here would in
the next generation attract many res
idents and enormous capital, if they
could be brought to the attention of
tho wealthy leisure class. He then
urged all who could do so to be pres
ent at the convention of the Oregon
Development League on January 12
and i'.i, aud said he hoped to see at
least two delegates from this city on
the pioposed excursion of the leaguo
to Los Angoles nod Lower California.
Train time was at hand ami the two
vlsitora had to hurry away to make
tboir train, much to tho regret of the
listeners. They returned to Portland
on trnlu 1. '

The secretary was then directed to

that no business of a formal utture

that he wanted to oall the attention
of the stockholders of th- Farmers'
irriagting company to the fact that
the flume in present nse was Id bad
condition, and that something ought
to be done about It. tie urged upon
the stockholders the necessity of hav
ing it replaced ai soon as possible,
and said that when it was rebuilt the
best plan would be to put two-thirds
of it in a ditob and leave the other
third as it now was. The cost of
maintaining it would then lie reduced
to a minimum. He also suggested
that some plan be devised wheieby
the stockholder of the company onold
liquidate the obligations outstanding
against it, and secure absolute control
of its property. Ue stated that the
ditob was a most valuable asset to
eveiv rancher living along it, or that
could be reached by Its benefits, aud
placed Its valuation at no less than

saying that the stockholders were now
having tbelr baldest struggle, but tnst
when it was over they would be in
a position where they oould reap the
beuellts accruing from this valuable
Lee Morse followed Mr. beaten aud
spoke much in the same vein, eayiug
that the company had tried to secure
the bonds outstanding against it, but
that the parties holding them had re
fused to relinquish them until the

tried to borrow an additional sum
from the same parties, but as yet he
couldn't say whether they would he

Indebtedness was $22,000, and tbey

An agreement was then made to ad

meantime see if enough of the stock
holders could not be summoned by
