Now Have 30 Acres in Trees and
Will Plant 40 Acres More This
One of the largest fruit ranches in
this valley is that owned by the Olds
Company, Inc., on Burch Flat. The
ranch contains 160 acres, 50 of
which are already planted to fruit
trees and this spring the company
will add 40 acres more of fruit,
mostly apples. It is the intention to
make one big orchard of the entire
place, and each year an additional
area will be planted to trees until
the full 160 acres are in orchard.
When it is considered that five
acres of bearing orchard in the We
natchee valley is worth from five to
ten thousand dollars, an idea of the
imensity of the project that the Olds
Company is carrying out can be ob
tained. The company is composed of
the members of one family, A. J.
Olds, the father, and three sons, J.
D., Fred and D. D. Olds. It is cap
italized for $100,000.00. The land
will remain intact, none of it being
Orchard land in this valley is rec
ognized as one of the safest and sur
est investments for capital known to
day, and the proposition of the Olds
company is one that is bound to yield
big and continuous returns. A big
fruit ranch, when once it comes into
bearing, is as good as a dividend
paying mine, and even better, for
there is no danger of the pay streak

The Press of Waterville Asks for
Cessation of Hostilities.
Now that the Wenatchee bridge
scheme has fallen through in so far
as the state is concerned there is no
need of keeping up the animosity
which it "has engendered. She is our
neighbor and we believe we ought
to continue on good terms. In fact,
there never was cause for any ill
feeling. It was only a difference of
opinion. Waterville felt they had a
perfect and justifiable right and only
asserted that right. A few of We

we presume this has passed away and
hope it is safe for Watervillians to
go to Wenatchee now. At least we
know it is perfectly safe for Wenat

can have our whole back yard to

too, but we would advise them to not
try to go up against Waterville again.

IN TAX RECEIPTS
Comparison of Collections for Same
Period in 1906 and 1907 Show
Treasurer Buttles is working over
time these days taking in the coin.
Everybody seems to be prosperous
enough to pay his taxes and they
are all coming in promptly. Added
to this there are many more people
in the county this year who have
taxes to pay, so the treasurer's office
is experiencing the busiest season
The increase in the tax collections
in' one year is surprising and is an
evidence of the growth and devel
opment of the county. A compari
son in the receipts of the treasurer's
office from February 1, 1906, to
March 15, 1906, with the receipts
during the same time this year shows
an increase of $22,017.19. The re
ceipts during that time in 1906
were $64,552.44, and for the same
time this year were $85,569.53.

Cascade Consolidated Operating in
Chelan County Owns Promis
W. A. C. Rowse, who is registered
at the Great Northern hotel, is a
mining man who is operating in this
county. Mr. Rowse is the president
of the Cascade Consolidated Mining
& Smelting company and the Cascade
Valley Railroad company. The prop
erty of his company, which consists
of 17 claims, is located at Cascade
pass on Doubtful lake in the ex
treme northern end of Chelan coun
ty. The company has spent $25,000
in develoyment work in the past few
years, and this year is preparing to
build *a railroad from Rockport to
its holdings. As is true with all
mining camps in the northern part
of this state the development of the
properties in the Coscade pass dis
trict has been seriously retarded by
the lack of transportation, and Mr.
Rowse's company has determined i
wait no longer on the promises of
the railroad companies but provide
the necessary means of transporting
its ores by constructing a road of its
own. The survey is now nearly com
pleted and Mr. Rowse stated that
grading will be commenced this sum
The holdings of the Cascade Con
solidated cover six well denned veins
of smelting ore, from five to fifty
feet wide. The nature of the ground
permits of development by tunneling,
and the work so far accomplished
has opened up some fine ore. The
values are in gold, -diver and lead,
and assays run from $4 to $95. The
company has a water power on
Doubtful creek where an electric
plant will be installed for the pur
pose of running the mining machin
ery. The company is capitalized for
$550,000, and its office is in Seattle.
