Au ordet has been issued to Com
missioner Ballinger, of the general
land ollice, by Secretary ot the Inter
ior UarUeld, which is intended to ex
pediate to the utmost the issuance of
patents to tome 30,000 eutrymen
whose applications have been held
back under Secretary Hitchcock's re
gime. In cart, tho ordor says:
"You will instruot local oUlcetHjthht
It la equally their duty to facilitate
the issuance of flnul cert ideates to
bona tide settlers as to guuid the in
terests of the public and government
in preveutlugt illegal entries and
that, in the performance ot their du
ties, the will be held to strict ac
count for the exercise of sound din
oietlon and gcod judgmout. it is ex
pooted that reigsters and reaelvers in
their respective districts will obtain
knowledge of the general character
and quality of the publio iaud over
whtab their ;urlsdiutioo extends, and
iu the disposition of caces before
these olilcers they should make use of
aid kuowledge, either iu aiding the
eutrymen or in preventing an illegal
entry, as the case may be.
In accordance with the routoronce
which we have hud, you will at once
take such action as is necessary so ns
to organize your fluid him) ollice
force, either by wuy of redistdbutiuu
or couoentiation, as will make it pos
sible to most eliuctively carry out the
order of the president.
All regulations or instructions in
conflict herewith are revoked. "
Id discussing the order Secretary
UarBeld said :
"Ibis order is one ot unusual im
portance to the citizens of the publio
land states, involving as it does about
30,000 entries and a large number of
looatlons and selections which have
accumulated iu the geuerul land oltlce
ponding examination before the issu
ance of patents. Included in these
are about 120,000 homesteads, "000 tim
ber and stone ami other cash entiles
made under spocllic laws, 'JOOO desert
land and 600 minerul entries.
"To bring the work up to dute the
cleiioal force of the general lund)olllce
is working overtime and will be em
ployed fully ton weeks. The force and
means now availshle will be used to
the utmost limit to expediate the pat
enting ot lands where the eutrymen
have oomplied with the law iu good
fruit Land 1 Selling High.
The Wenatohee Kopuhlio announces
a leooid-breaking sale of fruit lands
iu that rich irrlagtod valley oi Chelan
county. An Improved six-acre or
chard has recently chaugod ownership,
the buyer giviug 92,000 an a ire tor
the place. Jt is planted to apple
trees, now six years old, and is in
come propel ty. The purchaser is nn
experienced fruit urower from the
Okanogan valley of British Columbia,
and consider he has a bargain iu his
orchard, lie states that, with proper
management, he expects to make vhe
place pay a dividend of 20 per cunt
annually on the cash invested.
Five years ago the tract, which now
sells for f'2000 an acre, whs one of
the ordinary places being redeemed
from the desert. It whs t lion pur
chased for ti'Ml, which was cons d
ered a good pi ice. Since that time
the owner ha iruproved the tin in,
and the trees bare grown into crop
producers. And the expected lias
come to psss iu the filtillmeut of the
prophecy that irrigated fruit lands
would command $2000 an Here. That
price does not appear exorbitant when
the growers leport harvestiug fruits
that pay alt expenses and leave a mar
gin ot 20 per cent for profits on the
money and labor expended.
There are thousands of acres of
good fruit lands lylug in the deseits
and timbered areas of Washington.
The present value of many such tracts
might be rjekoned at less than $10
an acre, liut with water for irriga
tion, or the stumps and logs cleared
away for crops, the price would in
crease many fold. Values are counted
on the producing possibilities of the
land. Values are counted on tbe pro
ducing possibilities of the laud. Oi
chards that return $ 1000 an acre every
year when planted to marketable ap
ples, peaches or pears certainly are
worth the original purchase price of
12000 an acre. It seems like an exag
eration of faots, or the common jug
gling of figures to asset t that such in
comes are possible; but thny are mat
ters of record.
.'. The opportuntics for securing valu
able lands are better today than in
former years. Ibe yo'ing men of the
present have all the modern facilities
at 4 their command for the develop
roeut of profitable fruit farms. The
pioneer days are over in transports

Underwood, Waah., offers the only
remaining chance of purchasing firt-t
class fruit land in the famous Hood
Hiver district at a reasonable price.
Underwood is only two miles from
Hood Hiver, (just across the Columbia)
and in addition to all that Hood Hiver
can grow, Underwood, being better pro
tected, has a peach crop of the highest
quality KVKKYyear, while her btiawbcr
ries are ten days earlier and catch the
big prices. 8hould you like something
beside fruit, how does time crops ol
alfalfa, 4 to 0 feet tall, six tons to the
acre, Viithout irrigation, strike you?
That is what B. F. Heals of Under
wood does while lie is resting.
Underwood offers some of the most
delightful locations for homes of any
place on the Columbia river. Magnili
cent views of mountains, rivets and
valleys, pure bracing mountain air,
southern exposure, protected from the
raw up-stream winds.
Tbe land bas been held by old si t
tlers, content to make a living in other
ways than growing fruit, but witli
the building of the North Hank road, on
which the rails are now being laid, this
land i is coming on tho market, and the
prices now are certainly lower than any
to be found on the Oregon side of t quul
quality, especially when you remember
that Underwood is now only 20 minutes
from Hood Klver, while iu six months
Hood River will be coming over to ship
Ler fruit on our railroad and then it
will take more money to buy Under
wood land.
We have several tracts of both im
proved and timber land for sale. If
you fail to find what you want in Hood
River, drop me a card, take Underwood
Ferry. I will meet you at the dock and
you will be in a fair way to become a
resident of Underwood, for it needs but
to be seen to convince you of the ad
vantage of buying here either for a
home or for speculation.
Railroad otliclals are buying here.
