Id his otijectiunn to sign the
warrants fur the purchase of the
Pacific Power & Light Company
water plant, Mayor Hartwig says that
the city has taken no steps toward the
amendment of the city's charter
ai.ked for in the communication to the
council from the New York attorneys
of the Chicago bond brokers, Ulen &
Co. With these amendments, he
sUtesI the! city could go into the
market with the bonds and receive
bids at a greater advantage. 1
seems, noting the fact that Mr. Hart
wig. himself, has been chairman of
tu charter amendment committee ap-
tiointed by the council more than
months ago.that he should have made
some effort to call the committee to
gether for action. However, the fact
is that the Charter Amendment com
mittee has been called together but
once, and then at the instigation of
Councilman Howe. Mr. Hartwig
deliberations are too lengthy.
The following misconception of
apple culture is clipped from the
Ottumwa, Iowa, Courier:
" 'There is more money to be made
in fruit raising in Southwestern iowa
than there is in the West I his state
ment was made by A. It. Cooper, an
apple expert from the Hood Kiver.
Oregon, apple country, who attended
the Iowa state fair. 'I believe that
with excellent care an orchard would
pay better profits along the Missouri
river than out where I am located,'
Mr. Cooper added. 'It would take
three or four years to get the trees in
proper condition. But the soil, the
climate and other conditions are con
durive to raising good apples.' What
Mr. Cooper sayu of the southwestern
part of the state is true of the southern
and the southeastern, as well as other
sections of Iowa. There are no better
apples grown anywhere than those of
southeastern Iowa. The only trouble
is that the Iowa orchard has been only
a side line, with very little attention
given to u.
It is rather difficult to believe that
an "apple expert from Hood River"
could show such ignorance; for the
editorial statement clearly evidences a
luck of knowledge of the elements con
ducive to the most successful apple
culture. It is possible that his state
ments were misinterpreted by the
writer of the article.
However, it is very gratifying to
know that the statements are not
taken seriously at Ottumwa. The
following letter, relutive to the arti
cle, was written to W. F. Cooper by
W. F. Dykes, a prominent citizen of
the Iowa city.
Ottumwa, Iowa, Sept. 4, 1911.
My dear Mr. Cooper: Will you
please just read the marked item in
pajier enclosed herewith. What do you
think of that, anyway? And to come
from a Hood Kiver man at that ! Do
you realize now what you missed when
you left Iowa when in search of an
apple country? Now will you be good?
Our old friend, Fred Hukey, once
mailed me a copy of the Portland
"()regonian."or what ever it is called,
with a marked item about some man
who had been arrested and fined for
offering wormy apples for sule on the
streets of Portland. Here in Iowa, we
would arrest a man for selling an
apple without a worm. Vou know we
want all that is coming to us, and if
the worm goes with the apple, then
we want the worm. Seriously, I never
regaidcd Iowa as much of a fruit
state. I think climatic eonditi ona art
against it. We excell in many crops
but not in lruit. Possibly, with the
same care and cultivation given the
orchard that is grown in thiWestcrn
inni uisiricis, it might prove, in t
manner at least, true, as this Mr,
iaio er savs. i.erininiv uifh nnnr
laws regulating the spraying and care
oi trees the quality of the fruitr could
uiiiriveu, out i am oi the opinion
that climatic conditions would make
the crop;too uncertain. I also believe
much deH'i)ds upon irrigation, so as
to get the right amount of in oiaturo
ui the right time.
Sam Samson, who was a resident of
this valley during the winter of 1905
and I'., but who is now presiding at
Stcvenson.where he is owner of ithe
Stevenson Hot springs, accompanied
by engineer F. Vai divert, was in this
city yesterday to confer with the local
business men and members of the city
council relative to furnishing power to
the city for a municipal plant. Mr.
Samson is developing a site on the
Wind river, where he says he will be
able to secure 6,000 horsepower. He
plans to sell his electrical energy to
different municipalities along the
Columbia at wholesale prices and allow
the city governments to retail the
power through a municipal plant.
Mr. Samson, who will in person or
through a communication present his
proposition to the council tonight,
states that he will be willing to make
a cut, furnishing power on a wholesale
basis, of 60 pel cent in the present
rate schedule or the Facinc rower &
Light Co. In the event that the city
wili entertain his plans, he will be
willing to submit sealed bids in com
petition with any power companies.
He left here yesterday for The Dalles,
where he will make the same proposi
tion. He has placed the proposition
before the cities of Vancouver and
Washougal, Wash., where it is looked
upon favorably by the citizens.

A Battle of Alcrtnost Betwun
HunUr and Hit Prey.
The Eskimo method of bunting aeala
shows a primitive calling improved to
a Que art When a seal la discovered
the direction of the wind ia at once
noted. Then the hunter, keeping
himself to the leeward of the seal,
walks up to wlthlu about a quarter of
a mile of It Beyond this he begins to
crouch and advances only when the
seal's head Is down.
Now, as the seal Is one of the most
wideawake of animals and has the
habit of throwing up Its head quickly
every few seconds, to guard against
danger. It follows that the Eskimo has
to be extremely alert if he would get
his seal. When the seal's head Is
down upon the Ice Its eyes are shut
and It Is said that in these brief Inter
vals It takes Its sleep.
The hunter by carefully watching
the seal's movements Is able without
much difficulty to get within about 200
yards of It, but at closer quarters he
Is obliged to employ other tactics. He
lies down at full length on the ice.
Then the real sport begins.
When the seal's head Is down the
hunter, who keeps a keen eye on his
prey, is able to approach still nearer
by dragging himself forward on his
elbows. This maneuvering continues
for some time until the distance be
tween man and beast has been re
duced to a few yards.'
When near enough to make a sure
shot the Eskimo takes his bow and
arrow from his side and sends a swift
shaft through the head of his outwit
ted companion. Sometimes instead of
the bow and arrow a harpoon is used
