Hood Hirer Pointed the Way.
Many fruit inspectors and promi
nent orchard ists have been taking tha
farmers short course at the State Ag
ricultural college as prepar ation for a
campaign against diseased oiohards
and Infected fruit the coming season.
Lilt (Mature is to be prepared by Pro
fessor Cordley of the college for dis
tribution by the inspectors of .their
respective oounties, giving full j in
formation as to the use of sprays and
treatment to be applied. Ihta availa
bility ot reliable information makes It
an easy step for tbe orohardist to ' rid
trees and fruit of hateful diseases.
Tbe soientlilc way Is tbe easiest way
to restore tbe orchards to health. ;
It la a tradition that the .Agricult
ural college has been called upou i for
more Information relative to trait
growing and fruit diseases by Iiood
Klver than by all other districts in
Oregon combined. What Hood River
bas to show for her application of
soienoe, intelligence and Industry is
apples that the world . demands, re
gardless of cost.
ibree bundred and ninety-four dol
lars for one wagon load of ber apples
is an achievement Hood River "oap
point out to all rivals, i be example
given by Hood Kiver and by Rdgue
Klver la ot Incalculable value to the
rest of the state in that it shows !the
way to success. Two thousand dollars
for a oarload of Rogue River New-
towns, nearly $1,400 of it net at tbe
orobard, s achievement worth while
in apples, and is one to vindicate1 the
wisdom ot tbe inspectors who ara i or

MAY ERECT $20,000 BUILDING
Bepjrtof the Committee Who Looked
After Hood Kiver Interests
A apecial meeting of tbe Hood Kiv
er Commercial olub waa beld at tbe
club rooms Monday evening. . The di
rectors met eat ly and transacted rout
ine business, atter which tbe meeting
waa open to members.
Not a very large crowd waa present,
but It waa an enthusiastic one. The
principal object of the meeting waa to
hear the reporta of tbe committee who
went to Salem to work for Hood River
oounty. While practically all of the
residents of the city and .valley legret
that the bill did not pass, yet there ia
on every hand a grateful acknowledge
ment ot tbe good work done by tbe
oommlttee, . and a set of resolutions
will be drawn up by a oommlttee ap
pointed for tbat purpose, to present
to those entitled to the tbanka of tbe
olub, aa well aa tbe community, for
theii efforts in oar behalf.
President Davidson made a brief
statement of the work done by the
committee at Salem. He explained
that nearly all ot the members of the
legislature admitted that Hood Kiver
should have a oounty ot Its own. and
wonld gladly vote for It, but that
many of them, iu fact too many to
give ua a majority, were tied up on
aooount of bavtng to trade votea with
the Wasco delegation in order to get
through thoirfown measures. ' Had we
bad one member of the Wasco delega
tion to tight for the bill, It would
easily have carried. ' It appeared that
the Wasco delegation , were in Salem
'or tbe only purpose of killing off tbe
Uond Rivet' bill, and were ready to
trade votes with anybody to do so.
lo suoh lengths was this fight car
ried, that every important piece of
iegis.atlon in which tbe Wasco delega
tion was Interested, did not pass. It
is also signitloant that The Dalles lost
tba portage bill, with Ita $00,000 ap
propiiation, whloh .would have bene
fitted The Dallea alone. The Dallre
must need Hood River very bad when
they preferred to lose the portage till
tban to lose us. It could have been
prevented.. . : . . -.Mr.
Davidson explained that the
merit of oar case really bad little
weight with the legislature. Friends
of tbe Hood River , measure, who
needed every vote to carry their own
legislation, were foioed to make deala
with tbe Wasco delegation, and . vote
against tha Hood River measure.
While the committee were not suc
cessful in having tha Hood River bill
passed, yet they did their share in
killing the general oounty bill, which
would have foiever prevented the
formation of any new counties in Or
egon, and whioh waa evidently pre
pared by Sent tor Wbealdon and in
troduced . by Mr. Knowles for the ex
nreaa nurnosa of nreventinir tha form.
atlonlof the Hood River oounty. The
Nesmltb county bill was also defeat
ed, in spite of tbe efforts made by
Mi. Wbealdon to pass It. In the same
fxave with tbe Hood River bill' also
les the portage bill.
As an evidence that we are not
daunted by failuie, the club appoint
ed a oommlttee to get up plans lor a
building, ot two or three stories, the
lower floor to be used for store rooms,
and the upper story fitted up for at
permanent heme for tbe Commercial
club. Tbe cost of tbe building ia not
to exoeed $20,000, and Leslie Butler,
who waa present, stated that the
amount could be raised on a bond is
sue, at 6 per cent Interest, and the
entire amount would be subscribed in
Hood River. The committee will
make a report, with plans, in tbe near
futur -. Suoh a building would give
the cluh a prominence that it could
not otherwise attain, and tbe whole
enterprise would work to the good of
tbe community, One of tbe import
ant results will be to unite; the. city
and valley on matters of publlo im
portance, provide a room for publlo
meetings, and also for looial gather
ings. . i
