ant events have tritnspired in the up
building of the city of Hood River
aud projects havo been either Htarted

much in tho progress of thin commun
ity. Thousands of dollurs hnve been
spent in liotteriut; the cuniiitioiis of
property and in erectiiiK now Imiid
iiiK. and thotiHittnlH nmro uro hoinx
spent iu liuilding niilroads and lor
It Wat tluiiiiK tho J'Piir jne.t eloi-ed
that the idea of building the Mount
Hood-railroad wim I o 111 tunl put into
execution. In it few weeks it is ex
pected to have this road completed to
its present dehliiiulhiii, mid the end
of summer nmy fee it ptitOied eten
further up tho valley. While the rnil
roaii whh built li.rfly for the purpose
of (jivitin llio new mill of thu Oregon
Ltiuilier couipmiy tin outlet fur its
produt'ts tit all seasnits of the year, it
cuutiot help lint prove of mutual in
terest to the railroad mid thtfeo livitiir
aloun it to put into ell'ect it patceiigei
and trei;ht service.
Ibe construction of the road has
been tho moans of liriuifiiia uo small
amount of money into thu city of
1100a tuver diiiiiiK lite year, and
more is yet to lie spent.
The lumber business Iuih received
au added impetus ly tho erec
tion of the iinmeuho new mill of the
Oregon Lumber ctimpany at. the new
town of Jeo, which is said to bo the
largest mill iu the northwest, and
which is equipped to turn out any
thing from a lath to an K0 foot tim
ber. Another largo mill owned hv
the Stanley-Smith Lumber company
was projected, ami is 111 anng com
pletion attireen Point, and will mid
its tpioto of business to tho city dur
ing the coming year. ,
Nineteen hundred anil fl vo also saw
the erection of U10 now electric liirht
and power plant at an expenditure 0)
$.'(0,(100, aud au almost like sum spent
111 tne improvement ot the water sys
tem. Iho new block of the llnvidsou
Fruit Company was built, uud also its
brick warehouse, cold storage plant
aud ice making apparatus, and elec
tricity installed in it in the place of
Ilie Apple Ui otters Union built its
new concrete waiehinn-o and made
better ariangements fur hiiiiiilini: and
shipping fruit and llHio can be written
in big letters as the year 111 which the
growers here received the highest
price ever puul lor apples anywhere.
The past year was an active ouo in
the building line, ami it is estimated
that at least fifteen new residences
were erected The new ("atholio
church was bulit and additions matte
to the city schools, Liu iy in the year
tne rreiglit station el the O. K. IM.
was completed anil the paweuger sta
tion remodeled during the summer.
A new industry was instituted in
the building i f the cider mill and vin
egar works, and many 111 i nor improve
ments were muile to other business
buildings about town.
Ihe banking fuciliatics of tho city
were improved In the inauguration ot
a savings department by the First
National Hunk, auu the prosperity ol
the valley indicated by the incorpora
tion ot liutler Co. into the ISittler
Hanking Company and the doubling
of its capital stock.
Merch ints have hail a prnlitable
year, ua has been shown by the open
ing of larger stolen with Letter stocks.
A number of new linns have gone into
business ami mu ominok tor trade
next year is better than ever bi lore.
Uoiisltlering the small amount ot
revenue at tho disposal til tho city
government, it has aci-oiiiplithcd
much in the way of uu, r teu.otits
and has handled the nil,. nol the city
ou a wise ami eoinioniii al policy, the
passing of tite onlinance tor the con
struction of the sewer was one of the
most impoitant features of the year
and indicates the spirit of piogtess
lvenosu for which Hood Liver is not
ed. Educational facilities iu the various
districts throughout the valley have
been bettered, both lu tho matter of
supplying teachers and in quarters for
the pupils It has been necessary to
eularge many of the school hoiihs,and
the taxpayers have not been backward
in voting money for this purpose.

Residents of the valley who uno

fact that the residence of the Lev. T.
L. Kliot, about three miles up the
valley, was on fire aud was fast burn

Dr. Kliot, with his sou, W. G.
Kliot, and daughter, Henrietta, came
to this city from Portland Friday af
ternoon and went to their home,
which had been closed for some time.
A tire was started In the large open
lire place and some bedding placed
lu front of It to dry out the moist

building on the pluce which they
used as a kitchen and dining room,

front of the tire, and it is thought
that sparks from the burning wood

which burned so rapidly that the
house was ablaze liefore it wag no

the building turned laoi'lv and was
soon in ashes. The bla.e attracted
the attention of the neighbors in all
directions, but by the time they ar

progress of the fire.
On learning of the disastrous effect
of the tire, E. L. Smith sent a convey

The banquet whioh will be siven
by the Commercial Club Saturday.
January (t, is creating considerable
interest among the members aud
friends of the club and the occasion
s being looked forward to with a sood
deal ot pleasurable anticipation. It
will be served In the large dining hall
of the Mt. Hood Hotel with tables
arranged and decorated for the occa
sion, aud tho committee who has the
affair in charge has arranged to have
speakers preseut who will both in
struct and eutertain.
Tom Richardson beads the list. As
most people who read the papers know
Mr. Lichurdsou is secretary of the
I'oitiatKl commercial Uluo and lias
that eloquence of the ever-ready kind
possessed by few. He has the happy
faculty of weaving fact, fancy aud
anecdote together in a way that is
luitli pleasing and convincing.
Judge Cake, the geuial president of
Hid same organization, is known as
olte of the most forceful and inter
esting talkers ou the Lucille coast
and has signified his willingness to
tie present and make an address.
Linaldo M. Hall, the advertising
agent of the O. R. A N. and Southern
Lucille toads, is also one of the men
who will respond. Mr. Hall has made
advertising of localities on his road a
study, aud Hood River has always been
especially favored in the railroad lit
erature. His remarks will prove in
teresting. A. Dennett of Irrigon.vice president
of the Oregon Development League,
has been sent an invitation, and it is
expected that he will be present aud
give a talk.
the banquet is being given to pro
mote the interests of tha club and to
draw its members nearer together in
a social and business way. There is
no time wheu a man feels more kindly
tlisposed toward his neighbor or ac
quaintance than after breaking bread
with him, and the oiub'a Idea in giv
ing the banquet is to promote good
fellowship and unify the Interests of
the members by having a jolly good
time. It is thought that this will be
the best way of removing any traces
of factional feeling that may exist
among the members aud it is hoped
that as many of them as possible will
attend and help do what they can for
the best interests of Hood River.
