THE DANGER OF HOLDING HOPS.
The Capital Journal advises all hop growers to close out their
crop for 1911 at thirty cents or over.
A number of times we have seen growers almost ruined by
holding their hops for speculative prices.
The normal value of the Oregon hop is about twenty cents a
pound, and hops held for higher prices are a risk.
There are large speculative holders using the newspapers to
convey the impression that hops may go to forty cents a pound.
The grower who has a crop of twenty, or a hundred, or two
hundred bales should not be deceived by such publications.
Of course, any man who is situated to take chances and who
can afford to lose, can speculate on any product.
Again we emphasize the proposition that it is positively a
dangerous proposition to hold hops now.
A man who has held lucrative office all hi3 life can well afford
to say that our system of government is a perfect success. If
he had to till the soil or work by the day and support a family
and buy school books for them and pay street and sewer asess
ments out of hard-earned wages, he would sing a different song.
The official, nn easy street, eating oats out of the hind end of the
wagon that is pulled by the taxpayer, cannot be trusted to pass
an impartial opinion on such matters.
BROADENING REFORM WORK.
The Capital Journal believes one of the greatest movements
of the times is the broadening and "practicalizing" of reform
We all want to be in the big hallelujah chorus in the next
world, but we ought to be inspired with a desire to make this
To give humanity a hitch upwards, to improve the general
conditions of the masses of the people, is pointing people sky
wards. The problem of the higher socialization of the community has
been undertaken in many different ways, all more or less effec
tive. That work should be undertaken in Salem in a deliberate, in
telligent and scientific manner and including every good agen
cy. The press, the schools, the churches, educated men and wo
men owe this service a greater share of their attention than is
There are matters of the greatest importance to the develop
ment of the community, and the uplift of the people to be pro
moted. Industrial education and night schools, better art in the home,
beautifying and cleaning the city, better social conditions for the
working man and our young people, are worthy of an united
It is high time some one was thinking about a big arched
concrete bridge across the river at the foot of State street. That
is one of the biggest things for the development of Salem and
West Salem that can possibly be worked out. There would be
two arches with a pier in the middle, and two channels for ves
sels to pass under. There should be a concerted movement on
the part of our city government. It should be a bridge for the
people, and not for railroad companies.
WEEKLY CAPITAL JOURNAL FOR HOME SEEKERS
The Capital Journal has opened its annual fall campaign for
home seekers for Oregon.
The first step has been to print a weekly edition devoted to
giving correct information about our city and Vestern Oregon.
The Weekly Capital Journal has enlarged its scope, and, in ad
dition to being a first-class weekly family newspaper, it will be
a guide to the home seekers in Oregon.
Thousands of copies have been going out to Eastern people
inquiring about the soil, climate, products and opportunities
for location in Oregon.
If yon have a good story about your soil and will send it to
The Capital Journal we will see that it goes to the people who
want just such information.
Send us the story of your products through the mail or call at
the otlice and tell us what you have raised that will interest our
friends in Iowa and other states.
The Weekly Capital Journal, the Weekly Oregonian, each one
year, and the Pacific Northwest farm Journal three years, 'will
be clubbed to new subscribers for one dollar in advance.
See if you canot get us a club in your neighborhood at that
remarkably low rate five year:-' subscription for a dollar no

SEEDLING ORIGINATED IN THE
WILLAMETTE VALLEY HAS
BEEN IIOUGHT BY A NURSERY
For a number of years at the ap
ple shows branches of an ever-bearing
apple tree, with ripe apples and
blossoms on the same branch have
been exhibited and attracted the
wonder of the visitors. This tree
originated in this valley, and was
sold the other day for $600. It is a
great natural curiosity, and, so far as
known, the only one of Its kind In the
world. It is a stedling which grew up
In a fence corner on the farm of
David E. Junkin. 10 miles south
east of Albany. It Is now 10 years
old, and for several years has borne
ripe fruit from May to November of
each year, having blossoms, green
fruit and ripe fruit all on Its branch
es at the same time during the sum
mer. The apples are of good quality.
The tree was bought by a nursery
company, which is to have all Its
products for 10 years. The tree will
be left in its present situation, and
the company will utilize it in secur
ing buds and scions, in an effort to
propagate the "ever-bearing" variety.
