of Argiculture, issued this week, gives
a fluttering condition of apples. The
showing for bloom this year was never
better, "lbe weather has been dry.
though somewhat oold, but ou the

"It will be remembered that the in
dications last May were almost, if not
quite, as good as for this year, and
yet the crop was below the avuiage.
the most destructive fungus diseases
aud insect euerules canuot yet be posi
tively reported upon. Un the other
band, the light orop of last year,
which was also au excellent seasou lor
growth, together with the favorable
wiuter aud spring conditions of this
year, throws t'.e probabilities iu favor
of a large orop this year, not only iu
Canada, but iu all aprle-growinu
countries. Should these anticipations
he vended, it will be impossible to
market a poor quality of fruit, such
as was sold iu large quantities lust
year. Spraying Bhould, therefore, be
continued in every orchard. No in

and It is prolmole that it will pay bet

Reduction In 1'asHcnger Kates.
Portland. June 10. Sweeping re
ductions In passenger rates are an
nounced by the llarritnan interests,
which were decided on at a confer
ence held at Umalia ihursday. At
the session were gathered oliluials ot
the Southern Pacific, Union Pacific
aud Santo Fe lines, and following it
the statement was given out that iu
Idaho the rate would be 3 cents a
mile instead of 4, aud that would also
apply iu portions of Wyoming aud
Colorado on the Union Pactlic, while
the main llae rates in Nevada, Arizona
Western Utah aud New Mexico will
be 4 cents instead of 5. The Califor
nia rate will be !( cents a mile on main
lines. The change takes effect ou
a. Ji. Untig, general
agent of the Harriman
lines, made tho following
of the now ruling :
'New rates will principally affect
the Harrluinn lines. In l'JOO .the O.
It. & N. reduced rates In this terri
tory from 4 to 3 cents, and two
years later the Southern Pacific fol
lowed suit on the lines in Oregon.
Kates ou the Oregon Short Line
main line have been on a basis ot 4
cents, a similar busts being main
tained in Utah and on the Union
t'aci lo iu Wyoming and Colorado,
also ou the Southern Pacific iu cer
tain parts of California. In all that
main-lino territory July 1 rates will
be made uniformly 3 cents and 5 cents
on branch lines where not now lowor.
lhrougb Western Utub Nevada, Ari
zona and New Mexico the main line
rate will be 4 cents, instead of 0.
This reduction means, for exam
ple, that the rate from Portland to
Ogden, first class, will be lowered
from $-10 to $20.!', and to Salt Laike
from $31.50 to $27. To Boise the de
crease will be from $10.15 to $15.25.
The 30-day first class rate between
Pot Hand aud Kan Francisco will be
dropped from $25 to $23.15. While
tho reduction does not affect this
immediate territory it serves to lower
the rates from this territory into and
across tne territory in which the rule
applies, so it will be of direct beue

IT IS NOW
NAME OF RIVER STREET CHANGED.
Kuiillne itiislncss Transacted at the
ItffriilarMt etln; of the Couimou
Council Monday Evening.
At the Council meeting Monday
evening the ordinance changing the
u nines of several streets passed its tec
um! reading aud was agaiu referred
back to the committee ou streets and
the city engineer, lite chainnHU of
that committee reported that there
were several requests mado to chauge
the name of Kiver street, as the name
it now bears seems to cast reflection
on the locality iu tho minds of strang
ers, naturally associating the name
within position along the iriver liont
or in a low wet locality. It appearing
to the committee that the reasons tor
the change of uame were sutltoieut,
the change was ordered.
The street committee also reported
that the east eud of Kiver street, or
Cascade Avenue as it uow is, had
been ordered grade I between the Mt.
Hood Hotel and tho depot, aud the
sidewalk continued on the north side
of the street to First stieet. This
wiilbriugtitaoppostte to the new depot
being erected by the Mt. Hood rail
road compauy, the Improvements be
ing made by that.oompany warranting
the stteet being llxod up iu good
shape. It is also important that the
uppearuuee of that locality be improv
ed, as it is the first impression that
strangers get of Hood Kiver.
Complaints coining to the Council
as to the condition of the corral at
Hartley's barn, aud no attempt being
made to i lean, it up and keep it clean,
it was declared a nulsauue and the
marshal ordered to.have it abated.
The tilth from the corral is running;
over the sidewalk, and the odor from
the place can be detected lor a block:
ou either side. The locality Is too
central for a place of thut kind, and
the further use of it as astotl.jnrd will
be prohibited. There have Keen a
bundled head of stock quartered there
of late, aud it is a iniuaoe to health
and a damage lo the adjoiuing prop-
the marshal reported that the build
ing on the corner of Second aud Oak
street uow occupied by several res
taurauls was iu a ilithy condition, on
account of rains emptying ou the
ground under the floor it was order
ed that the iiuiuiu.ee be i. baled. This
is the property recoutly bought by
Dr. Flint, who intends to tear dowu
the old shacks aud build a new mod
ern brick building ou the site. He la
anxious to get the pieseut tenants to
vacate, but theie being some question
about a lease, nothing has been done.
As connection with tne sewer at tbla ,
time would necessitate duiug it all .
overliigaiulwheu the uewiblook is com
pleted, it probably will uot be done.
lhe marshal was Instructed to noti
fy the Water Company to stop all
leaks , in water mains that are making
mud holes lu the streets, and especial
ly lit the corner ot the llroslus build
ing, where a email stream of water
runs out Into the gutter, making, a
bad place In the street.
The special committee not being
ready to report on the liquor ordi
nance, au adournmeat was taken to
next Monday evening.
Ilalance l'p the Plant Food.
Occasionally oroliurds are found
wbeie nitrogenous elements con
tained iu the soil are so abundant
that they tend to produce vegetative
growth to the disadvantage of fruit
production. Ibis condition can be
remedied to a certain extent by bal
anciug up the plant food. Some of
tl e nitrogen can be taken out through
the agouoy of some cereal crop which
oau be grown on tho soil or proper
proportions can be secured by apply
ing phosphates and potash in the form
of wood ashes or commercial fertiliz
ers. ilicNO two elements encourage
fruit production aud are necessary
when producing the highest qualities
fruit Tho orchard 1st may, therefore,
llnd it to his advantage to use such
fertflizers iu his orchard if his treea
havo been growing too much wood aud
too little tin it.
