FrultQrowtr't Opinion of Hood Rivtr Apple Land. Hood Rivtr Tht prices now made public by Independent buyert lor Hood River Newtown and Hpitxenberg apples have ctnted rpple grower to do some figuring. A wall known apple man, who it an authority on tbit subject, In lacking about the matter, aaid: "At th prire this year for tha dif ferent site ol Kpitienberge, wblcb were 3, 2.76, 12 60 and 12 26 Pr box, grower obtained an average price ol 12.40. Placing th yield ol 7 year-old Bpltienberg treea , planted 65 tree to th acre, at five boie to tb trt, we will gat 365 boxes to th acre. A 20- acre orchard on this basis will produce 8,600 boies, which, at the average price ol $2 40, give us f 16,000 lor our season' work. "The prices for Kewtownt to far an nounced are 1 2 25, 2 and 11.76 per box. Tbii give ui in average of 1 2 per box. But tbe Newtown It more pro lific than tbe Hpitxenberg, and produce seven boxes to tba tree instead of five, giving us 65 boxea to the acre, or 9,100 boxes for a 20 acre orchard. At can eatily be teen, tha earningi on a 20 acre Newtown orchard thit year at ibeee pricet will be $18,200. "Wbil the figures ara large, tbey are bated on the yield of comparatively yoorg tree which bavt not yet reached ibeir full bearirg maturity. A full bearing orchard can be safely depended on, I think, to produce 600 boxes of applet to tbe acre, at 1 know of several in tba valley that now do it. Figuring on a basis with trees in full maturity, and with a large proportion of the crop composing the larger sites, as It doe tbit year, it it not very difficult to de termine tlu promt ol Ibe appie oust nets in tbe future."

All peace over ture ar blocked by tbe refusal of Pino Guerrera, th insurgent leader n Pinar del Rio province, to enter into any ar rangement for an armistice, Guerrera't antwer to tbe government'i announce ment of it agreement to grant a ten dayt' armistice is tb blowing up of two bridges on tb Weetern railway, cutting railway communication beyond Pinar del Bio city, and an attack on San Juan de Martinet. It ia aaid here tonight that Ban Juan d Martinet it in th bands of tb In surgents, and tbat tbe garrison, consist ing of 100 government recruits and a small force of mounted rural guard, had been defeated or captured. Tb fact that other leaden of the in surgent force ara willing to agree to an armistice can have little effect so long aa Guerrera it determined to prosecute tb war, and there ia slight doubt in any Quarter that Guerrera can control the situation in bis own region. Hi lore i reported by all those who have visited bim recently aa ranging irom 3.000 to 4,000 men, al) of them well mounted and some ol tbem well and oUiert indifferently armed. The gov ernment force opposed to bim, which ia under command of Colonel Avaloe, comprises about 1,000 men. It wa re inforced at 7 o'clock this evening by Lieutenant Colonel Clews with 1,260 men and three machine guns from Ha vana. Colonel Avaloe' force, with tbe exception of small detachment left at Ban Juan de Marline i and ban Luis, is at Pinar del Rio city, but it without meant of transportation to go to tbe re lief of Ban Juan de Martinea. Not mora than 400 of them are mounted. General Henocal aaid today tbat Guerrera evidently had not been in formed tbat the government bad actu ally, although informally, granted an armistice, adding tbat a second commit tee bad been wnt to bim, but could not reach him before tomorrow. Tbe (act I, however, that Guerrera refuse point blank to accept an armistice ex cept on condition that the last presi dential and congreeaional election shall be annulled. Tbat the government should content to tbit ii out of the question, and tonight prospects point to a continuance of tbe war. PLANS FOR PANAMA TRIP.
