The meeting was called to ordor ttt IU
o'clock by President E.L.Smith. The

mittees were then heard, after winch
tbe appointment of various commit

In addition to the muuy representa

gates on baud from U ah, Montana,

Wyoming. The pragiam covered three
days and called for a long list of pu
pers, addresses and discussions on
practical horticultural topics. Iu con
junction with tbe meeting there wus
a large exhibit of the best products of
farm, orchard and garden.
The second day of tbe convention
opened up with blighter prospects
than the first day. A large number ol
delegates, especially troiu Idaho, ar
rived in the evening to swell tbe num
ber in attendance.
Wednesday, too, was not entirely a
successful day, as more or loss confu
sion reigned until the exhibits were
placed in position and much minor
detail attended to. It whs not until
evening that the association was com
fortable arranged to cany out the
One of the most generally interest
ing discussions of that S'ssiou was on
"The Foundation In Education for
Agrioulture," led by J. U. Anderson
of Victoria, B. C, and Professor liall
of Logan. Utah. Some new points on
older making, L. V. Henderson, Mos
cow, Idaho. C. M. Kiddle of La
Grande gave eonio remarks on jolly
making of a practical character. "Du
ties of Fruitgrowers" was discussed
by A. I. Mason of Hood liiver. A
paper ou "Home Crown Trees," by
Mr. Anderson, proved particularly
interesting here, where lSritish Col
umbia is not too well known.
The Latter Day S IntH' hand furn
ished music, tcgtlhcr with m number
of instrument. 1 uud voeul selections
by the Lyle u.nsical oiganiattu:i.
With the increased attendance of
delegates from outside points ami of
those from out of town districts in
Union oouuty, the sessi :n 1 hursday
morning opened with brighter pros
pects. E. L. Smith, the veteran fruit
grower of llood Hirer, uud the presi
dent of the association, spoke ou the
subject of "Overproduction." His
bearers wondered what Mr. Mniin
knew of an overproduction, as Ho d
River fruits have never been known to
reach an overproduction, so eagerly
are tbey sought in tbe uiarkuls. .Not
withstanding this, the uddress was
timely and well received.
"Existing Conditions lietween hliip-

Mr. Tennesou has made a specialty ot

musio furnished by the Lyle musical
members. "Hie Value ot laity
Spraying" was given by Profescor W.
K. liaiL entomologist of lite l.ogan,

ject cleverly handled, and many now
suggestions were offered by speaker.
i 11. Uicklnson, one or ine most
guooessful orcburdists of Lnion
eounty, gave a paper on "llow I (iet

ia more or less codlin mot h, and w ith
bis methods aud suggestions light
wag thrown on this subject. He gave
at hla methods, early and complete
spraying and then systematic spraying
until tb crop was nearly ready to
gather. In this way Mr. Dickinson
haa been able to produce a largo per
oent of good apples from bis orchard
near this place.
Special mention is deserving the ex
hibit at this convention. 1- olden

added much to the charm of the ex
hibit, aud which prored to the visi
tors that the oouuty was a producer
of other fruit than big red apples.
Among tbe delegates the llood Kiver
delegation was most prominent.
Not content with a big red apple on

(Jovernor (Jeer attouded the meet
ing an! made several remarks iu the
discussions, us be is much interested
in fruit growing, having formerly
lived in the great fruit section of
Cove, The governor is visiting rela
tives iu eastern Oregon and was in
vited to visit the fruit growers.
In bis talk, Judd ueer said iu part:
"In selecting varieties of fruit for
commercial purposes 1 would name
quality as the most important attri
bute. Probably the highest author
ity obtainable is tbe revised catalogue
of fruits, prepaied by the American
Pomologicul Society and the United
States Department of Agrioulture,
To illustrate: The Spitzeuberg is rat
ed 10, which is the limit as to ecxel
lence in quality; the Jonathan 8-9;
tellow Newtown 11-10; lellow Bell
llowor 8 U; 1'hompkina King 8-9; York
and Koine Beauty (J-7 each. Under no
ciicuuistHUoes would I set out an ap
pie tree for commerce whose fruit In
quality rates lower than the last two
named. The Beu Davis lanks from 4-5.
"Second in importance is to select
a well known variety one that needs
no advertising. It is just as easy and
cheap to grow what tbe people want
as what yon think they ought to want,
aud they will pay you much better for
"Third iu importance is the number
of nineties grown. Don't have too
man v kinds. 1 would have more than
one variety, as seasons vary, and by
having say three varieties one is fairly
sure of a good Income every year.
"Select the best location available
for the purpose. Tbe drainage aud
so it should be good, If the best re
sults are expected. Fruits will often
color more highly if a sloping piece of
land Is chosen, especially if it slopes
to the east or south.
"tiood stock should be chosen; not
the largest always; in fact, the
younger stock is usually best if it is
hcalthv. clean and vigorous.
"A uud should never be allowed to
form in a growing orchard. Keep
the cultivator running at intervals
of two weeks until August, when it
should be stopped to allow the tender
wood to ripen and harden to enable
it to withstand seveie winter weather,
"Pruning and training are import
ant factors. Tbe objects to be at
taiiied lire well balanced tops, aud
the admission of air and sunlight to
all parts of the tree while still leav
ing foliage enough to protect the fruit
and brunches from tbe drleot rays ot
the sun. This is au important matter
where spraying is necessary.
W. K. Newell of (iaston, formerly
Oregon's Superintendent of Ilorticul
tine at the Lewis and UlarK exposl
t ion, was unable to be present at La
(i ramie, but sent a paper giving hints
to the Oregon grower 1 1 be gathered
from the exposition. It was In aub
stance us follows:
1 was much impressed by tbe In
torest Eastern people took In our
cherries. The universal verdict was.
We never saw such cherries before;
and then they wanted to know where
they could get them, and why they
couldn't be shipped East, so tbey
could buv them. The few who bad
ever eaten any in riasteru markets said
thev hud to pay 40 to 60 cents a
nound. California makes large pro'
tits from her cherries by shipping
them East. Ours are better, and tbe
season will follow theirs. All through
the great Inland Empire, between the
Cascades aud the Hookies, there are
favored spots where cherries grow to
perfection. Here thev should be plant
ed in abundance and the fruit shipped
to Eastern cities. Last year Kae 4
Hut Hold of New York bought all tbey
could get at 14 to Id cents a pound,
and sold them in New York at llf) to
iu cents. They asked for carloads
where they got pounds. Hoyal Ann,
Lambert and Bing are the shipping
cherries, partcularly the latter two.
"Also tbe country east of the Cas
cades should supply all the North
Coast wl h the European orCalifornia
varieties of grapes. They can grow
them just as well as California, and
there is no reason why they should
not do so. There is a good market
for Muscats and Tokays. The Wil
lamette valley can produoe the Amer
ican varieties of grapos to perfection. ''

At U:30 the banqueters formed into

the principal speakers ot tbe evening

The speech making waa begun ey

i icbiudum .Mo',., nuu u - ap
propriate words, introduced the Hon.
A. A. Jayne as toastmaster ior ire
evening. Mr. Jayne, after expressing
bis appreciation of tbe bonor coi.-
ferred on him and addressing the as
semblage for a short period, intro
duced Judge Cake. The Judge sain
that when he bad been aked to talk
before the llood River Commercial
Club, he bad turned to Mr. Richard
sou and said: "lorn, wuat snail i
say?" and Tom answered, "Oh, say
tbe same old thing. Talk about tbe
commercial clubs of Oregon." Mr.
Cake said that this question was so
near his heart that be could not talk
about anything else; that it waa bound
up with the future development ol
Oregon and that tbe wonderful op
timism of the progressive citizens ef
the state was what was making its his
tory and would continue to make it.
Optimism, be said, was the one thlwr
In this world llial accompiisnea n-
suits and that nothing was aoct
dished without enthusiasm. "Why,"
said he, "it is so rampant in Portland
that 1 have known two men to niti t
on the streets of that city when it
bad been rain'ug forty days and forty
nights and after shaking bands, oue
of them would say to the other,
'How's everything?' and the other
would reply, 'Fine, fine I Thank God,
It 'a raining.' " Such optimism, said
he, was sure to win out. He inveigh
ed against the "knocker," ;and said
that there was no room on mother
earth for him. In this connection
be told a story about a man whose
motber-ln-law had died aud hla wife
telegraphed bltn to know whether tbey
should embalm, cremate or bury the
body, and the man at once tele
graphed back to embalm, cremate and
bury at once, as she might come to
life again. When you meet a knocker,
said the judge, "embalm, cremate and
bury him." He then concluded with
a tribute to Hood River for its unity
of purpose, and said it was a shining
example in this respect to other towns
iu the state.
Toastmaster Jayne then called npon
E. L. Smith to respond, which that
gentleman did wltb an eloquence that
stirred tbe hearts of hia fellow citi
zens and made them as one gentleman
said, "feel proud that we hare such
a man in our city." Mr. Smith's
talk sparkled with wit as well as elo
quence, and he referred to the gentle
men irom rortiapa as ine --not, air
brigade," and said that be knew what
tbey were going to say before they
started, and in referring to Jud(.e
Cake's allusion to knockers, assured
that gentleman that there were dj
knockers in llood River. That tbe
valley was bound together for oue
common purpose, wbicb was its ad
vancement and progress, and that it
was ever wiling to try new methods
and to investigate and experiment
until it got the best results. It was
ont, he said, like a man in Canada
who had lost several crops by persist
ing in using the old methods whioh hia
neighbors had discarded. When asked
