The fruit growing interests of west
ern New York suffered a severe blow
last week, when a terrific gule blew
thousands of barrels of npphs ami
pears to the ground, duing- damage
that will run fur into the thousands of
dollars. Jt was one of the worst wind
storms for this season of the year in
the history of orchardists, the velocity
ranging 50 or 70 miles along the lake
whore of the fruit belt, where the wind
hud a clean sweep, pays the Produce
News. The wind was not a steady
one. and its sudden, sharp gust blew
the fruit down like hail from the sky.
Many trees of early apples and pears
.were entirely stripped, while late
apple and pear trees were practically
denuded of their fruit. The ground
was laterally covered with apples
ranging in Bize from one to three
inches in diameter.
Wind and rain caused trouble in the
irrune belt last week, particularly
Monday and Tuesday. The wind blew
a irle Monday, tearing down many
vines, now heavily loaded with leaves
and fruit. In consequence, it was re
ported that in some vineyards where
good work was not done in tying 111
the spiiim fully one-iiuurter of the
vines are lilown off the top wires. This
will meuu considerable loss to the
growers, not so much in fruit as in
the labor required to re-tie at this

With fucc-i tunned and muscles hard
ened by their long cross country and
mountain Jiike about twenty of the
members of the Mountaineers of Seat
tle passed through this city last Satur
day morning bound for the ascent of
Mount Hood. The remainder of the 07
enthusiastic vacationists ended lheir
lona hike, which beiran near Seattle
July 15. at Cooks. Wash., last Friday
From this point they took a North
Bunk train and returned to thier homes
via Portland. Considering the number
in the party, und thot half of them
were women, it is a remarkable fact
that there was not a single case of ill
ness nor was an injury received by any
one of the Mountaineers on their stren
uous 100 mile journey. A packer, of
Glenwood, became ill while the party
was north of Mount Adams and had to
be carried for 15 miles.
The- Mountaineers organized live
veins ago and since that time they
have taken a long trip to noted peaks
.Thcjlirst year they went 50 miles into
the Olympics, hla.inu trails and mak
ing waysjfor future trips. The second
year found them cutting 12 miles of
trail in and around Mount. Baker. The
third year tiny went to Mount Kail cr,
thi'irutirth to l-lai-ier puik and th! hit
excur i in was made to Mount Adams
and Mont Hoed this summer.
The party that climbed Hood Monday
returned through this city hy the Mt.
Hood llailroad Tuesday afternoon. All
were enthusiastic over the scenery of
the Hood Kiver Valley and the wonder
ful view to be ohtained from the noted
peak. The hist ascent was made safe
ly. The members of the party seemed
to regret the necessity of returning
from the rough garment of camp life
of the past few weeks to the more
uncomfortable garb of every day city
lite. 1'liey left here Tuesday night
for their homes in Seattle. ,
A controversy over the right to land
at the local water front between lhe
Dalles. Portland & Astoria Navigation
Company and the Open Kiver trans
portation Company, nus aireauy result
ed in a perso-ial encounter between the
loi a! agents r -r the two companies ami
may laed to a legal conflict. On last
Wednesday, when the steamer J. N.
Teal, operated hy tne upen Kiver
Company, attempted to tie up to the
wharf boat ownt-d by the competing
line, Shirley Page, agent for the J. N.
Teal, was on the floating dock. He
was ordered to get ofOhe boat hy the
agent for the owera of the wharf, Key
Koberts, but made reply mat nis com
petitor might seek a warmer climate,
when Kotierts strucK rage.

competing company was in front of the

Open Kiver Company made landings
Thursday by the aid of the local
authorities. However, it in asserted
by O. C. Dean, one of the owners of
the Hood Kiver-W hite Salmon Ferrj,
that the wharfhoat is not interfering
with the municipal right-of-way and
the J. N. Teal will not be allowed to
land again at the floating dock. With
the exception of the right-of-way, all
the water front is under the lease to
Mr. Dean, and he asserts that both he
andtlaviwiiersof the land, the Oregon
Lumber Company, have offered the
Open Kiver Company leases at reason
able figures at various times, but that
all have been refused.
W. S. Buchanan, manager of the
Open Kiver Co., was here last week
to confer with the Commercial t luu
and business men of the city. He
asserted that unless the city would
build and maintain a municipal dock
the Teal would make a whistling
station of Hood Kiver. However, no
definite action has been reached.
Bumper Hop Crop For State.
Oregon s hop crop is another source
of prosperity for the farmer this season,
With 30 cents already paid for tht
growing crop and reports of extreme
shortage abroad, making further
advances likely, the hop grower is in
hiifh feather. The state has an ex
cellent ield of hops this1 season, the
total being estimated at 100,000 bales,
which is the biggest crop since liHii.
