(irowers Discuss Fruit Culture and
Valuable Papers are Read.
The meeting of fruit growm-s held
here Saturday for the purpose of or
ganizing a local horticultural society
and also for the purpose of discussing
tbe different phases or tbe fruit cul
ture, was well attended and much of
valuable interest learned by those who
were there, fruit growers from all
over tbe valley ana a number irom
Moaler were at the meeting, and it
seemed that after tbe numerous topics
bearlnu- on the subiect bad been dis
cussed that there was not much left to
tell about fruit raising.
K Li Smith was chairman or the
meeting and conducted tbe procedure
It with as much celerity as possi-
He annunoed the tonics prompt-
rendered valuable suggestions and
saw that everybody participated who
would help to make the meeting suc
cessful aud profitable.
Tbe new org'nizatlon starts with
tbe largest membership of any similar
one lu tbe state, hnviugover KK) mem
bers. A constitution aud by-laws
were adopted and five directors elect
ed who will select a president, secre
tary aud president. The directors
are: U. 11. Hears, f.. 11. aneparu, j.
Sprout, J. U Carter and 11. 1'.
(1. A. MoCtirdv was the HrBt speaker
and talked on Strawberry Cul'.ure Ver
sus Apple Cluture. Mr. MoCurdy
said that he bad four acres of straw
berries from which he had takeu 9w
net. aud read a short paper on how
be bad obtained such good insults.
r. Woodwortb said bis strawberries
netted him $(00 an acre, aud h. 11.
Sbepard said ha had eight acres which
etted hiui eioou. iwtn tne isirer
told how they cultivated to make
strawberries a prolltalilo crop.
P. U. Church talkert uDout nasp-
berry Cultuie, but said that his crop
of these berries was more in the na
ture of an experiment than anything
else, and that he ooulii not recommend
them as a gooa commercial ciup us
Our f uture lor uuernen whs uie
next topic, and President Woodwortb
ot tbe Fruit Growers' Union handled
this subject. He said that he bad
planted 1,300 cherry trees wheu be
come to the valley a number of years
ago, but that he had gradually lost
tbe in through, disease until mere were
only about 500 left. The trees that
ha had rjlauted were the Royal Ann,
Bins and Liambert. tie louna ouerriea
fairly protdable, but did not couslder
them nearly as good a proposition as
an orchard ot Newtowns buq Dpii.en-
berus. 14 ad received from DO to 92.10
for 10 Douod box of cherries and bad
found that Hood River oherrles could
be shipped as far away as Kuglaud
and arrive in good condition. 1 Had
also shipped cherries to Mexloo, re
nal villi? cood tirlces for tbeni, Hii
trees were 11 years old. but bad loit
nna hn f nf them from etimosis.
11 h Davidson in bis talk on cold
storage said that it was bis judgmeut
that fruit should be plaoed iu cold
storage as soou after it whb picked 11a
nnaai iln iii order to outain tne utwi
raanlta. K.xneriuienU that had been
made in this line had proved tms idea
to be correct. He thought also tnut
strawberrio? could ro r. nrln i t kti
herter if they were cooled oil in cow
utnram before ho in if nlaoed in tne oars,
Mr. Cuatner asked 11 tne same result,
might uot be obtained by having the
batnhes ou top of tne car ion. uimu
for a while after the train got to mov

thought possibly it would.

A. I. MaBon told how to topgraii

K. A' Kranz. seuretary of I he Appl
Orowers' Uuion, read a paper ou the
Best Commercial Varieties or Appios
l PlHtit." This is a auchtion inai
has received a great deal of attention
from growers and the following advlci
will no doubt belp many who ur
Tha few thoughts tl.at I nm about
to present to ji u, are toe result, 01
observations njatle di ling tne two
years that 1 have beeu couuected with
the marketing of apples iu the Hood
Hirer Apple Urowers' Union. A fruit
grower plauts apple trees in order
that be may derive a profit from do
ing so. Profit being his object, ho
will naturally want to plant the varie
ties that will make him the best re
tnrna from a certain number of acres.
There is no use wasting time iu going
over past history to rind out what
varieties those are as it has been
proven beyond any doubt that there
is no place iu tbe world where Yellow
Newtowns and Spitzeu bergs, the two
higbeHt priced apples ou the maiket,
grow to such a stale of perfection as
in tbe famous lioou niver mhoj.
As some of the growers, eHpeciuuy
lawoomers. are uncertain wuut, pro
portion ot eucb of those two varieties
to plant, I wish to say that according
to the wants of the markets tnat we

Important reason is, that we have
have England, Germany aud France
as customers for our Newtowns, wbile
the rich American is the only one as
far as we can ascertain that is williug
to pay us big prices for our highly
colored large Spitzenbeigs. In spite
of the good prospects for the above
mentioned two varieties, tbe question
does arise uow and thou, what is the
next best variety to plant? The
Baldwin which Is oua of tbe maiu
commercial apples of the east, does
uot seem to be very desirable for Hood
River valley; It is not a good keeper
with us, aud tbe trouble we have had
iu the past marketing them convinces
us that it is a variety that we should
plaut very sparingly.
The M. B. Twig is tmother variety
that seems to be bound to make us
trouble; they apparently are as sonud
as a dollar, but closer inspection 111
show peculiar dry brown spots under
the skin, which seems to be a common
thiug with thia variety. We also
notice that tbe larger M. B. Twig
showed a good deal of water core this
seasou, therefore 1 say dou't plant It.
Our old friend the Ben Davis is quite
a favorite in most all apple sections,
and the price realized for it year in
aud year out, consideriug the good
bearing quality and the healthiness of
tbe tree, is not tbe worst apple on
earth to plaut.
Thu Orient la consuming more aud
more American apples every year, but
whether or uot Hood Ktver is will
lug to compete with the always cheap
er fruit of tbe fruit raising sections
west and north of us, is a matter to
be considered. We shipped one car
load of our large Ben Daivs to Chins
this spbhou at an advuutse of 50 cents
per box over Buns shipped from other
sections to that market, aud nocoid
ing. to au article that 1 saw in the
Oregouian some time ago, It seems
that even a Chlnamuu can tell a Hood
Kiver Ben Duvia when he claps his
almond eyes ou 11, aud if he should
be williuu iu the future to pay us
wbat our fruit, is worm iu comparison
to the other fruit shipped to those
markets now, tbe Beu Davis apple may
lie considered a fair mouey matter.
Missouri. Kansas and other suction
raise a belter Ben Davis than we uu,
for us to uguro ou the ha. tern

better oolored aud better keeping Jon

and for Hood Kiveritea to play second

is nolle a favorite with some of out
growers, but whou you consider that
Mia f irtlev is eon ally as good In even
respeot and has in its favor the fact
that it is a much juicier apple, it is
advisable to investigate thoroughly
before setting out many trees of the
Winter Banana variety.
The Delicious is a good looking anu

as we dou't know what it will do cotu

The great interest iu the movement
for a division of Wasco county and
the creation of a new county to be
called Curcade county is becoming
more marked each day. We are in re
ceipt of communications from various
districts aud parts of the proposed
new county atklng many questions
and seeking for information. Some
want to know where the boundary line
will be placed, others what will be tbe
bent way to bring tbe desired result
about, bnt tbe more intelligent and
practicable waut figures as to the pro
posed cost to the taxpayers ot tbe new
In reply to the flist query we will
state that tbe proposed line would be
botweeu Mosier and The Dalles. As to
tne second, we thought everybody
kuew that it will require an act of the
legislature. There are many newcom
ers in the valley, however, who have
only beeu here a year cr two, and tbe
lutter is given for their information.
As for those who want figures, we
print below a tablo of statistics for
their information that will answer
the queHtiou quite fully. The table
is as follows:

ii one Item of resource, bowevei, that
ia not mentioned lu this table, aud
yet which Is well worth consideration.
When the l retent lax levy oi vt aiscu
county Is all paid iu the connty will
be out of dtilit. lue law provides tuai,
where a new county is created and
thia condition exit-ts it is entitled to
its pro rata share of the assessed valu
ation of the county buildings, fig
uring the valuation of these buildings
nt '20,000, it can be very easily seen
that our share would be about 85,000.
This is no iuconaiderabl sum and
would go a very long wuy toward es
tablishing buildings tor tbe new
Another startling argument in tne
way of figures for county division la
the almoht phenomenal Increase In the
valuation of property in the proposed
new county as compared to the rest of
Wasco county. It is as follows:
Uttln In Wasco county,
IIHII to llKI'i Jl,.HSl,73i
(lain Iii Cascade county
ItitM) Ui Hs 5M.2&i-or 61 per ct
(lain In Imlance or Co... IWI.WIO-or 21 per ct
With this enormous lucreuee iu the
valuutiou during the past year, it is
not overebtiniating, vte think, to say
that It is very likely to reach 11,000,.
000 or perhaps more during the com
ing yea". With a tax levy lowei tne
first year of the f irth or tbe new
county tlian it is at preseut under the
Bdinliiistratiou or Wasco county, ana
the enormous increase taking place In
the valuatiou of the territoiy compris
ing Cascade couuty, most any school
boy can seowhat a great benefit would
be derived from the change.
There Is ueither intention or need
tor incurring a heavy expense of any
kind iu tho establishment of the new
county. Its resources are fully ade
quate to its needs, lu addition to tho
fact that it has become, we may say,
both a necessity and a convenleuoe
