Daily of Iron hi il Man Fount! Here
The body of a man supposed to
huvu I ecu li'oi noil was discovered
near the bout landing lust Thursday
atternou. It wits lying on the beuoh
whero it hud been wkhIiuiI by the
.lives and was 1 u u ml by Ihe foreman
of tho O. li. .V. N. section gang.
City Marnlnil (iauger was notified
ml hid tlie b tily brought to this city
and placed in cliarnu of Undci taker
liui'tmesa. 1 he body was d rut-sod in
course liliiek shiit, overalls and log
era shoes and Ihe contents ot the
ockels revealed nothing but a bail
una handkerchief and a shoestring.
Hit) corpse was examined by a pby
iman who could llud no evidence ol
1 1 in i v enlllcient to cause death and
said he thought it had been in the
water about teu days. The man was
about 40 years ot age, had dark Half,
mustache and chin beard and was &
feet. II inches in height.
The coroner, who was notified, re
tuned to hold an intpiest as there was
nr) identification, and the body was
Inn led here Thursday evening. It is
said that passengers on an up-river
steamer several days ago reported see
ng a mini who was working on the
North liana roail blown into the river
by a blast and it is thought the body
may have been his.
Advantage of Oregon.
If the people living in the far mint
only realized what they are missing
try not residing in this part ol tlie
world the railroads would not be able
to accommodate the travel coming
this way. I hit idea seems to bo prev
alent in thu east Unit Oregon is a
cold, rainy state and a disagreeable
pi ice In much to live. Xhe exposi
tion dissiptiled thin idea to a cei tain
extent, but it was principally the
wealthier class that was able to enjoy
tliti trip t i t.liu coast. The greet niid-
ilu cIhns is slow to believe the tales
told them ol Oregon's glorious climate
and woiideifol possil, mill's by the re
cent expoeilion visitors. Many also
dislike to leave their It lends: and
liieitk the social ties at home. The
idea of going so far away when they
are not tin tneiully uble to return u
thev Hud Ihiucs not as represented
keeps a huge percentiige away. Uth-
ers iiclinve in tue oin atiuge mat, u
rolling stone gathers no moss, but tail
to note the fact that a stone on a
graveling side bill likewise accumu
lates none of the green. If they hear
ol a person "going west" and doing
well they Hscrilio it to luck, ami claim
that wheto one may succeed others
are just us liable to fail.
Hut if they just knew of the delight
fnl, etpiilal Ic climate, the good water,
the tine ti n it, the beautiful scenery
and the letllle soil we cannot hell
bt.t think that they would cast nil ob
st icles aside and make it the gol ol
ili-sir lives to reach Oregon. Ho
.there you wid and talk with whom
you may in wet-tern Oregon and with
one accord all will say thev are more
than glad to be heie, and many will
i I'll you they havo only one thing to
be sorry for M l that is tint they did
not come years ago.
Where a sun stroke is somethiug
nnknown, where snow is a luxury and
zero weather unusual, where lightning
never strikes and thunder la seldom
heard, where the grass la green all
winter and rosea bloom in December,
where labor la never Idle and with

not help feel proud of our Oregon,
and sorry for sun-eticken and frost
bitten cistern residents, wbooauuotor
will not ret lize that Oregou la a coun
try similar to ' what Moaea led the
ohildreu of Israel to only better.
So if our eastern brethren are de
sirous of bettering their condition lu
life, if they want to go where oppor
tunities abound on every aide, not
where it is a pleasure just to be alive,
we advise them to come to Oregon.

The farmers of Whitman oontty,

forming of a wheat pool on similar
lines to those associations formed in
Umatilla antl Wasco counties lu this
state. The only notable dilferenoe in
tho organization ia that in Whitman
tho wheatgrowera advocate holding
their wheat until the market advauoes
to 70 ueuta a bushel. The farmers
leclare that their yield of griiiu is
lower than last year and the sacks are
tour rents higher and thieshlng one
cent higher than at this time last
year. In the meantime fanners from
the other ooutiea of the states will
.valeli with great interest the result
if the wheat pool, If the plan should
result in any advauce in the market

Snriiikling the Salem atraeti with

journal Portions of Court itreet
and Liberty street, in fiout of the
nronerty of Dr. J. II. biewer, was
treated to a coating of crude petrole
um this morning.
Ho far, the indications are that It
ia a success.
The work attracted a great deal of
Interest aud hundreds of - oitizena
passed around that way lo watch the
men lav the dust aud grease the road
The experiment may aolve the prob
lem of Htilem'a dusty streets, and the
success of thia morning's effort will
lead other property ownera to adopt
the same methods.
The oil was spread by meana ot the
water sin inkier, and did not spread
as it will when a regulai sprinkler ia
constructed for for the experiment to
be conducted around the court houae
property tomorrow. The oil was
forced directly onto the street by the
snrinkler. and then the road was
raked an as to spreud the oil in better
shape. The experiment was made on
an area ot 30x21 feet on one street
(jOxW feet on the other.
Dr. Ilrewer baa estiuiaated that it
wen d cost about ill) to thoroughly
sprinkle tho distance of one block
and that an application of three bar
rels of oil would do the work on the
streets adjoin'ng his property. Judge
Scott, too, is optlmistlo at the Inter

BIDS TO BE OPENED THIS MONTH
Keview of the Apple Situation by
Prominent Hood Hlver
The following Intel view in the Port
land Journal from O, L. Vanderhilt,
ia timely and reviews the apple aitua
From offers already received the
impression prevails at Hood Kiver
that prices for Oregou apples thia
year will be about the same aa last
year, when the highest prices ever
known were paid and the entire Hood
Kiver crop was shipped to Knstern
and European markets. The crop in
the valley thia year is variously esti
mated fiotn 100,000 to i:i0,000 boxes,
nearly double the amount ot IhsI
Already eastern and European
buyers have visited the valley. The
Apple Growers' association has not
made any contracts aud bus fixed up
on August '20 as the date when tho
orop will be sold to the highest bid
der. Healed bids will be received by
the cashier of the First National
bank of Hood Kiver aud opened by
the batik's directors.
The association represents 90 per
octtt of the apple growers of the val
ley and numbers about 12K men. .No
grower is allowed, under the rigidly
euforced rules, to pack his own appea.
Tbis work la done by experts em-
poyed by the association. A orew

fore being placed in the box. An as
sociation wrapper and box label naa
been copyrighted and ia used exclus
ively by the organization for protec
tion ot buyers and consumers from
apples that are grown elsewhere ami
labeled Hood liiver apples.
This year for the first tune the Hotnl
River valley growei has sold his tlrav-
ansteins, Kiugs and Wealthles, eaily
varieties, to the European market.
Of these there will be seven oarlosde
trom thia valley. Two oara are from
ueiilahland, the largest apple ram.u
in the valley, Oscar Vanderbilt. own
er of lieultiblaud, who waa iu Port
land today, eaid :
'Conditions in the valley at pres
ent are almost perfect for the apple
business. The three early varletlea
uow gold to Europe will be picked
and shipped in a boot three weeks.
Picking ot other varieties will begin
iu October. Thia year ia the third in
which the association has followed
the plan of selling the Hood River ap
ple orop to the highest bidder. It
baa worked successfully aau this year
the growera will realize the benedta ot
both a large crop and a good price.
Mr. Vanderbilt said tho increased
aoreage planted thia year 1b not large,
but number of good sales have been
made. Home of these are at prices
that people might regal d aa fancy.
Hut when compared with prices aud
earnings capacity of Colorado or
chards, and elsewhere, Hood Kiver
prices are still conservative-- Colora
do apple orchards bring from 11,000
to 1:1,000 per acre, while the Hood
Klver prices do not range at half
those liguies, although the latter or
chards have shown the greater earn
ing power. In a number ot Hood
Kiver oroharda a single acre has been
known to yield as much aa $1,000
gross in a year.
Mr. Vauderbllt has purchased du
aores known as the Valhalla orchard,
now in full bearing, and added it to
his lleulahland. This farm now con
sists of about 115 aores, aud ita bear
ing acreage is the largest in the val
ley. Last year the original farm
yielded between 4, (HI) and 6,000 boxes.
The ranch ia oultivateed to a high de
gree, bearing trees loaded with per
fectly formed apples, tne young tiees
looking thrifty. Every tree is
trimmed and sprayed scrupulously.
The land is cultivated anil harrowed,
and not a weed to be seen between all
the long rows of trees.
This year's crop of Keulahland is
estimated at 14,000 boxea. The ap
ples from this farm sold last year at
tl. 75 as the lowest aud $3 the highest
price per box. These prices amaze
eastern apple growera, most of whom
get less money for a barrel than Hood
River growers receive for a bushel of
apples. With the acreage of young
trees that will come into bearing n
the next two or three yeara the yield
of Ueulahland will be increased to hi
wards of '2f,000 boxes auuually. Ihe
entire farm ia ausoeptlble of irriga
