AUTO LICENSE BILL
WILL BE PERMANENT
C. N. Ravlin, chairman of the execu
tive committee of the Good Roads As
sociation, in reply to opponents of the
$6,000,000 bonding act, who advance
the argument that the people have no
assurance that some future legislature
may not rescind the special license tax
on automobiles, cites section 12 of the
bonding act and declares that the
measure, if adopted, will tie the auto
mobile license bill absolutely to itself
as a contract between the state and
purchasers of bonds.
The point was discussed by Mr. Rav
lin and State Senator Wilbur, and the
latter agreed that the point was tena
ble. "This argument," says Mr. Ravlin,
"will, I think, win many recruits for
the big roads building measure. Here
tofore the only reply that one had,
when the question was raised that fu
ture legislative assemblies might re
scind the motor license law was to ar
gue that such a procedure, after the
bonding act was finally voted on by the
people, by the legislature would not be
probable. Under section 12 of the bill
itself the prospective purchasers of
bonds issued under proposed measure
are guaranteed that the interest and
principal ot the bonds will be raised by
the special automobile licenses. If any
attempt is ever made to change the
law, the bondholders may prevent such
action by mandamus proceedings."
Sentiment in favor of the road bond
ing act is growing fast here. The
names on the roster of the Good Roads
Association, membership lists being
circulated throughout different sections
of the county, are being increased by
scores daily. At the regular meeting
of the Commercial club Monday night,
a plan was devised whereby the mem
bers of the organization would assist
the newly formed roads organization.
The city will be divided into small sec
tions and a personal canvass will be
made to ascertain the sentiment of in
dividuals. The Woman's club has en
dorsed the movement, and Mrs. W. F.
Lara way, president of the organiza
tion, has announced that she will ap
point a committee ot two to work with
the executive committee of the Good
Roads Association.
Every precinct of the county will be
combed by the committeemen of the
Good Roads Association, and every en
deavor to make the slogan, "Make it
Unanimous," effective will be made.
Senatoi Wilbur delivered an address
yesterday afternoon before the mem
bers of the Woman's club, who met in
their annual reception to the women of
the rural communities of the valley.

A WIDE BUSINESS
ACTIVITY DISPLAYED
Because of the construction of new
business houses, the remodeling of old
structures and general work that is
now in progress here, every laborer
and carpenter in the city is at present
employed.
5I tried," says A. S. Keir, "for
several hours the other day to secure
the services of a carpenter in making
some changes at my place of business.
Everybody was busy, and my work had
to le postponed for a week.
More than a half dozen of the lead
ing places of business are making lib
eral appropriation for remodeling and
making other improvements.
The demand for labor here is ex
pected to exceed the supply throughout
the year. The county court last week
let a $2,000 road contract to J. G. Fair
fowl, of Dee, and this new work will
begin at an early date. At an approx
imate cost of $15,000 two new bridges
will be built by the county in the Dee
vicinity this year. The rad contract
let to Mr. Fairfowl calls for the con
struction of a mile of new highway
near Dee.
The Mount Hood Railway Co. is lay
ing two miles of new track to penetate
the timberland of the Oregon Lumber
Co. on the headwaters of the West
Fork.
Mcdonald builds
cheap spary tower
Tower spraying, a new method for
the Hood Rive valley will be followed
by many Hood River orchard is ts this
season. Leroy Childs, in his investi
gations of the effects of srpays on ap
ple scab last season, found that apples
at the tops of old trees, where but for
the prevalence of the fyrngus the fruit
should have been most perfect, were
seriously affected. Strong winds usu
ally prevail during the spraying sea
sons, and Mr. Childs declares that it is
impossible to properly reach the high
branches of fruit trees with leads of
hose operated from the ground.
D. McDonald, devising a tower that
can be constructed on power spray ma
chines at a moderate cost, has created
a keen interest among growers. vThe
added cost of a substantial tower for
the spraying machine has been the
source oi worry for growers. Mr. Mc
Donald's tower, which growers declare
will be practical, will cost less than
$5. Two upright timbers, two by four
inches, are bolted to each end of the
tank of the sprayer. Convenient, broad
stairs, on which the operator stands,
are bolted to these pieces. The up
right picees, intersecting like the sides
of an isosceles triangle, are joined by
a fifth two by four piece, giving the
tower the appearance of an elongated
sawhorse. The man operating the lead
of hoae from the tower is enabled to
maintain his equilibrium by straddling
the connecting top cross pieces.
The newly constructed tower was
demonstrated to numerous apple grow
ers by Mr. McDonald at his Cascade
avenue place of business last Satur
day. Knights Templar Will Observe Easter
The members of Hood River Com
mandery. Knights Templar, will par
ticipate in their annual observance of
Easter Sunday at the Riverside Con
gregational church, where the pastor,
Rev. M. L. Hutton, will preach a ser
mon'especially torthe Sir Knighta.

of automobiles stretched the length of

with a profusion of handsome floral
tributes.
