Mr. Culbertaon says an effort will
be made to hare Mr. Mr. Bryan stop

previous correspondence which be
bad with tbat gontleman be 'stated
that if bis itinerary can be so arrang

Exhibited (Superb Apples.
The exhibit of tbe Hood River Val
ley Apple Growers' union, at tbtolr
annual fruit fair, held this year at
Hood Kiver, was one of tbe centers
of interest in tbe fruit trade circles
here tbia week. As announoed in tbe
Journal last week R P. Loomis &
Co., who bave contracted for the en
tire output of tbe best varieties of
apples grown by the union tbia sea
son, arranged for tbe shipment of
these prize winning apples to New
York in order tbat tbe trade bere
could bave an opportunity to sen tbe
quality of apples wbioh they would
have to offer. Ibe union also desired
to show New York the cream of tbeir
pioduet of wbicb tbey are justly
proud and took conaideiable pains to
pee that tbeir entire exhibit at the
fair was taken care of and shipped
bere iu tbe best possible condition.
It arrived bere in a most perfect
shape and none of those who inspect
ed it wo'ild bave thought tbat it bad
previously been shipped to tbe frait
fair and then been resbipped here
It was tbe original intention of E.
P. Loomis & Co. to display the fruit
in tbe new building wbiob tbey bave
leased adjoining thfir present store
at 9o Barclay street, but owing to an
unavoidable delay iu getting into that
building, it was found necessary to
arrange a place for the exhibit on the
sec oud Hoot of tbeir older building.
Ibe employes of this firm bad tbe
apples arra -.ged and labeled and ready
for inspection Wednesday morning
and it remained on exbibiion until
Thursday 'afternoon. As the fame of
the Hood Kiver valley apple baa al
ready one abroad, and as this was
the first opportunity that tbo trade
here has bad to soe such a display of
flue apples, representative members
of tbe trade eagerly took advautuge
of the opportunity afforded them aud
visited tbe store in large numbers
during tbe entice two days.
All of tbe vis'tors praised tbe ex
bibit, many ot them stating tbat it
was th finest tbey bad ever seen,
and others remarking that it was the
best tbey bad witnessed siuce tbe
World's fair. Tbe fruit was really as
nearly perfect as oould be and tbe
Hood River Valley Apple Growers an
ion was bgbly commeuded for tbe
care an I pains which they bave taken
to provide tbe market with such fine
fruit. It is of oouise a wel; known
fact tbat tbe climatic conditions ot
Hood River Valley are peculiarly
adapted for tbe growing of fine apples
there being no bugs or worms aud no
scale to infest the fruit, but it is also
a fact that tbe growers bave exerted
themselves greatly . iu order to get
the best possible results from tbeir
natural advantages. Tbat they bave
profited by doing this is evidenced by
the high pr'cea wbicb tbeir apples are
commanding wben tbe market Is glut
ted with inferior stook and by tbe
growing demand for it even at tbe
high figures wbiob are being paid.
While tbe yield of tbe Hood River
orchards is constantly increasing, tbe
demand is keeping pace with tbe in
creased production, and it is tbe be
lief of the best posted observers tbat
the demand will oontinme to grow
fast enough to take care . of all tbe
high grade apples grown in the val
ley in future years. The land baa en
hanced in value phenomenally. Ibe
orchards producing tbe best varieties
of Hood River apples are now worth
11,000 per acre and are a profitable
investment at these figures. .
One thing demonstrated by tbe ex
hibit bere this week was the fact tbat
there are other extra fanoy varieties
of apples gown in the Hood River val
ley besides tbe Spitznberga and New
town Pippins for Which it is already
famous, for among the varieties shown
which attracted especially favorable
oomment were .Jonathans, Red
Cheek, Hyde Kings, Winesaps, Ganoa,
Arkansas Blacks, Ortleya, Northern
Spy and Ben Davis. These showed
an excellent color and keeping quali
ty and several varieties of tbem will
be obtainable after tbe Rpilzenbergs
and Newtown Pippins bave been ex
hausted, tbeir keeping qualities per
mitting tbem to be bad until next
spring. These apples oarre from tbe
orchards from which EL P. Loomis 4
Co. will supply tbeir trade.
Tbe entire exhibit was sold Thurs
day afternoon to Aoker, Merrill &
Condit, and tbat firm will place tbem
on exhibition at tbeir various stores
in New York and Brooklyn. Fruit

Apple Market Active.
While there is still a surplus of ap
ples in New York the market for good
stook continues cteady, and tbcre is a
free movement of choice varieties Ex
porters bave purchased liberally iu
the market bere because the export
dema-.d for choice stock baa been so
strong that there was not enough ot
tbe right kind of fruit going forward
on consignment to satisfy tbe de
mand. Hamburg baa been taking
quite a considerable quantity tbis
week, l'J.UUU barrels going forward to
that market on three steamers. Plas
tically all of these were bought out
Ibe demand bere for box apples
from tbe northwest was active during
the week aod tbe best western New
York stock has also been in good re
quest at firm prices.
INotwltbstandiug tbat tbe embargo
ou apples from points on tbe Deleware
& Hudson ooutinuRB, holding baok
shipments from northern New York,
shipments bave been coming forward
to New York principally from western
New York at tbe rate of 40 to 50 car
per day, aud the choice stock has
beeu well cleaned np eaob day. J. 11
Killougb & Co., oue of tbe most re
liable firms in tbe trade, consider tbe-
out look generally favorable. Home
of tbe exporters fear that heavy ship
ments of Amercia.b apples abroad
which bave been going out in con
stantly increasing quantities during
tbe past few weeks will cause foreign
markets to become depressed, and
some of tbem predict tbat shippers
will be fortunate it tbey get even a
fair margin of profit over prices raug-
iDg on tbis side, ihe heaviest expor
tation on a single ship on record was
made Wednesday ou tbe as. Cauadiau
wbiob carried 3,000 barrels of applet
from Boston to Liverpool. Fruit

Largest Single Tract In Peaches.
Wenatchee, Wash., Nov. 21. Arti
cles ot inoo poratiou were filed yes
terday by the McLean-Van Holder
beke Land Fruit company. Tbe ob
jects of tbe corporations as set forth
In tbe articles of incorporation are to
purchase and improve lands by plant
ing orchards aud constructing a can
nery to utilize fruit impracticable
to nhip. Ihe Ufa of the corporation!
is fixed at 50 years, and the capital
stock $50,000. Tbe incorporators are
L. McLean, Lottie McLean, A. Van
Uolderbeks and Emily Van Holder
beke, all of Spokane.
Tbe corporation contemplates carry
ing out a scheme planned some
months ago of iriigating lands near
Chelan . Fall and planting 2,000 aores
to peach trees, making the Jargestor
ohard in tbe United States devoted to
that fruit alone. Tbe land lies across
the Columbia river from Chelan Falls
and it is thei intention of tbe promo
ters of tbe project to irrigate the en
tire tract by means of springs and
tbe construction of a reservoir to
oatob water from melting snow during
tbe early spring Tbe trees for the
oiobard are being grown in the nurse
ry et out by Mr. Van Holderbeke in
the Wenatobee valley two years ago
and wbioh be intends to make one of
the largest in the state. Spokesman

It must be mighty uncomfortable to
be a town deadbeat. Tbe dead bent
may not know It but be baa a yellow
streak down bis back that causes tbe
streets lights to turn pale wben he
passes beneath tbem. Everybody has
him spotted, be is distrusted by bis
neighbors and tbe members of bis own
profession refuse to associate with
him aod be is treated with silent con
tempt by tbe publio. If be bad a
spark of manhood he would leave the
town. Tbe deadbeat thinks be bas
friends but be bas not. But tbe old
deadbeat lives on, be smokes all tbe
cigars and drinks all the whisky he
can bam off tbe saloonkeeper or tbe
stranger that passes through town.
He .wheedles, whines and fawns to get
responsible men to go bis security for
loans and then brazenly tells tbem to
settle tbe notes. Ibere is a difference
between . a deadbeat and a thief, but
it is all in favor of tbe thief. Blue

Some of tbe Hood River apple rais

tions of apple growers iu other parts
of tbe ktute, tbit tbey oan raise just
as good apples us Hood Kiver apples.
Every time tbis assertion is made in
public it advertises tbe merits of tbe
Hood River apples. It would be bard
to think of a higher compliment
which could be paid to an artiole than
to bave it sot up aa the standard of
