President of the Horticultural Society
Retums From a Trip East Find
the Oregon Product the Standard
of Quality Says No Danger of
Over Production.
Portland. Apple growers in this
state need have no fear that the in
dustry is likely to be overdone. The
demand for Oregon apples exceed!
the supply in some sections tenfold.
That was the announcement of Wil
bur K. Newell, president of the State
Board of Horticulture, who returned
yesterday from a six weeks' trip, dur
ing which time he visited the apple
orchards of New England, New York,
Virginia, the Middle West and Colo
rado. Mr. Newell left Portland about June
1 for the purpose of ascertaining the
conditions In the various apple-growing
districts in the east and to satisfy
himself whether or not there was
danger that the Oregon product
would eventually lose Its eastern mar
ket. Mr. Newell's investigations were
in every way favorable to the expan
sion of this industry. In all the fruit
sections visited by him he found the
Oregon apple regarded as the stand
ard and in none of the orchards were
the methods employed in any way
superior to those In use here.
"The sole purpose of my visit,"
said Mr. Newell last night, "was to
acquaint myself with the conditions
prevailing in other fruitgrowing dis
tricts. Not a few of the local grow
ers have feared that the apple grow
ing business was likely to be over
dene, and some have hesitated about
enlarging their orchards. I am sat
isfied that Oregon apples will al
ways find a ready sale at good prices.
Wherever I went I found our apples
were considered the standard. Their
quality was known everywhere.
Eastern Orchards I)creasln?.
"In the Mississippi valley, instead
of Increasing the number of orchards
the area is slowly decreasing.
"The best orchards I saw were
those in western New York and the
mountainous region of Virginia. Some
very good apples are grown there, but
they do not get the prices in New
York that our apples command. The
growers there copy our methods New
England apples are very fine In fla
vor, where they are properly cared
"The question up to -the apple
growers of this state Is not shall we
put In more trees, but how can we get
better methods of marketing, so that
the consumer In the large eastern cit
ies can get our apples at a little more
reasonable price? While I was in
Washington I had an interview with
Secretary Wilson, and he told me the
growers of this state are not produc
ing a tenth of the number of apples
they should. He said that the peo
ple of Washington, D. C, would eat
ten times as many Oregon apples If
they could get them at a reasonable
price. Only a few Oregon apples are
sold there, and those command such
a high price that few people can af
ford them. The prevailing price is
40 cents for a half peck. People
much prefer apples to oranges or ba
nanas, but when the price of apples
exceeds the price of those fruits peo
ple will buy but few apples.
Competition In East.
"I do not wish to give the impres
sion that we have no competition in
the east, for we have. The growers
in Virginia, New York and Colorado
are our competitors, but our apples
cost more. What I want to tell the
growers here is to, grow more apples
and sell them at lower prices. There
will always be markets for all the ap
ples we can ship away. The apple
crop Is lighter this year throughout
the United States than last year--and
last year was by no means a
heavy crop. Nearly all the apple re
gions run from 20 to 70 per cent of a
normal crop, with an average of 60
per cent. This will insure very good
prices for all the fruit we have this
year. At no season In recent years
has the crop been so uniformly light
as It is this year."
Sees Mother Grow Young.
"It would be hard to overstate the
wonderful change In my mother
since she began to use Electric Bit
ters," writes Mrs. W. L Gilpatrlck
of Danforth, Me. "Although past 70
she seems really to be growing young
again. She suffered untold misery
from dyspepsia for 20 years. At last
she could neither eat, drink nor
sleep. Doctors gave her up, and all
remedies failed till Electric Bitters
worked such wonders for her
health." They Invigorate all vital
organs, cure liver and kidney trou
bles, induce sleep, Impart strength
and appetite. Only 50c at Tallman
& Co 's and Pendleton Drug Co.'s.

(Special Correspondence.,
Milton, July 15. Wheat harvest In
the vicinity of Milton is in full blast
this week, there being within five
miles of this city five threshing out
fits at work.

Thirteen Cents for Cherries,
Mr. William Wilson, one of the
prosperous Walla Walla valley fruit
raisers residing near Cobbs' crossing,
about two miles north of Milton, to
day received returns on his Bing
cherries. Mr. Wilson received 13 cents
net for his cherries, which Is a very
good price considering the price re
ceived for cherries last season. The
cherry crop this year is very good,
despite the fact that It was thought
that all the cherries were killed by
the late frosts this spring.
