If the demand fur the coming season
is at all similar to that of last the
Hood Kiver growers who are doing but
little thinning this vear, will have the
kind of fruit to 'till the till," said
County Fruit Inspector G. R. Castner
in discussing fruit prospects last
Thursday with W. K. Newell, presi
dent of the State Board of Horticul
ture, who was in the city to look over
the local situation.
Mr. Newell says that the crop of all
the Northwest, except in Wenatchee,
is going to be lighter than that of last
season. The estimates of some of the
marketers and growers, he says, place
the crop there at a greater figure this
year than last.
At present it is impossible to make
accurate estimates of Hood River
Valley. The Union, however, is send
ing out its estimate blanks to the
growers and by the middle of Septem
ber, when they are all returned, a
correct set of figures can be reached.
No definite conclusions as to the
prices for the coming season can yet
be arrived at; for no purchases will
be made until after the meeting of the
International Kruitbuyers' Association
at Detroit. August 9-11. All fruit
men, however, say that the year is
going to be a profitable one for the
The apple crop of the'United States
this season is now estimated at about
$2S,6.')0,0X) barrels as compared with
$23,825,000 barrels last year, according
to flguresjcompiled by the Fruit Trade
Journal and the latest Government
reports. The season in the East will
be from ten days to two weeks earlier,
while that of the West will be two
weeks later than last year.
It is too early to learn the exact
amount of commercial apples that will
be producea, as the foliage of the trees
in some of the leading sections is still
so dense that it is impossible to see
and to accurately estimate the quan
tity of growing fruit. Although opin
ions differ as to the approximate out
put, the concensus of belief in all
quarters is that the crop of Ualwdins
will be light and that the quality of
all other varieties will be far superior
to that of last year's product.
Eastern growers having finally
awakened to a realization of the fact
that the Darwinian theory of the sur
vival of the fittest applies to apples as
well as to animate things gave greater
attention this year to spraying and to
scientific methods ol cultivation than
ever before. This is particularly true
of western New York, where the crop
is expected to aggregate 3,700,000
barrels or about 500.000 barrels in
excess of lust year's output.
The Hudson Kiver valley crop is
estimated at from 25 to 50 per cent
normal. The drop has been .very
heavy, not only in this section, but in
several districts of western New York.
What the crop lacks in size, however.
mav be compensated for in quality, as
the 'outlook for very desirable fruit
throughout the State is promising.
The New England Mates are ex
pected to produce a little over 3,000,
000 barrels divided as follows: Ver
mont, 474,300; Massachusetts, 402,700;
Ithode Island. 144,000; Connecticut,
$515,000, $880,500 New Hampshire,
The West Virginia'crop promises to
equal, if not exceed, that of 1910, and
the latest figures obtained show the
output of commercial fruit from the
State this year will amount to at least
6,000,000 barrels. -Pennsylvania will
make a creditable showing with ver
2,000.000, barrels of 400.000 barrels in
excess of lust year'B output; Ohio will
have 1,940,000; Illinois, 1.936,000;

The open season for hunting deer as
well as a number of other animals and
game birds, began August 1, and State
Forester K. A. Elliott has his ear to
the ground for reports of forest fires
started through the carelessness of
hunters. Every year a great many
tires are caused by sportsmen leaving
their camphres unextinguished, and
thruughtlessly dropping lighted
matches, cigars and cigarettes as they
travel through the forest in pursuit of
It will probably be news to many
people of Oregon to learn that the
Forest Fire Law, which went in to
effect February 24, empowers the
Governor to declare a closed season
for the shooting of wild birds and
animals of any kind. The law cover
ing this point is as follows:
"Whenever, or wherever, during an
open season for the hunting of any
kind of game in this State, it shall
appeajto theJGovernor upon the show
ing of the State Forester that by
reason of extreme drought the use of
firearms or fire by hunters is liable to
cause forest fires, he may, by procla
mation, suspend the open season and
make it a closed season for the shoot
ing of wild birds and animals ot any
kind for such time as he may dt sig
nate, and during the time so desig
nated all provisions of law relating to
closed seasons or game shall be in
"It is, of course, not my intention
to urge the enforcement of this pro
vision unless it becomes absolutely
necessary in order to prevent destruc
tion of forest property," said Forester
Elliott in cementing upon the above
extract. "Whether any action is
taken depends entirely upon the be
havior of the hunters themselves.
However, just as soon as this oflice
receives reports that tires are being
started through the carelessness of
hunters, 1 shall immediately present
the facts to the Governor and recom
mend that a closed season be proclaim
ed. The Governor is heartily in favor
of this plan and has assured me that
he stands ready to issue such procla
mation should conditions warrant it,
This matter, as i see it, is entirely in
the hands of the hunters, for as long
as they exercise due precaution while
in the foresst 1 will, of course, have
no reason for taking action. It would
be an excellent plan for every hunter
to familiarize himself with the Oregon
Forest Fire Law, copies of which will
