NORTHWEST APPLES BEST.
Bring Higher Price Than Those From
Any Other State.
Consul General Robert P. Skinner,
writing from Hamburg, Germany, de
tails facta relating to the apple indus
try of this country as reflected in the
prices received there, and shows that
Oregon and Washington apples bring
more than those from any other states,
the scale being in comparison with the
California product as follows:
State Per 1-bushel case
Oregon. Washington .... $2.61(if 3.57
California 1.60(u2.61
As to the possibilities of the exten
sion of the apple trade with Germany,
the report shows that in 1908 Germany
imported 164,421 tons of apples, of
which the United States supplied only
10,502 tons; in 1907 Germany import
ed 151,457 tons, the Unite,: States
sending 9,229 tons.
Germany enforces rigidly inspection
for the San Jose scale, and this pest
has been found on a number 'of ship
ments from the Pacific coast. Mr.
Skinner says, however, that as a rule
American apples reach Germany in
good condition. He urges that care be
exercised by all apple shippers to free
their orchards from scale and all other
pests, and then exercise constant super
vision of their employes to insure that
the fruit shall be packed so as to make
it pleasing to the eye as weil as protect
it against bruising while being trans
ported. Hamburg is the great apple receiv
ing port. There, writes the consul,
honest and impartial rules of sale are
observed and the seller always receives
what is his due, the market regulations
and government inspection having been
developed in a manner to make it cer
tain that always there shall be no
crooked work or unjust rejection of
shipments.
German fruit buyers have for years
been sending their representatives to
America to look over orchards arid
packing houses, and keep informed on
the conditions of the industry in all
important localities where considerable
quantities of fruit are produced. These
agents often go without making known
their identity, and thus obtain infor
mation which might otherwise be
harder to secure.
The report ofConsul General Skinner
agrees with previous reports which
have been Bent to the government from
abroad that Pacific coast apples now
lead this country in all European
marts. It likewise emphasizes the
necessity of maintaining the present
high standard, in order that the high
prices now obtained may be main
tained and the apple industry reap the
large profit which has been made in
the past years.
CROP A RECORD BREAKER.
Prospects in Pacific Northwest Never
Better Than Now.
According to information received
during the past week the Pacific
Northwest will produce almost four
times as many cars of potatoes as a
year ago.
This increase is startling, even
though the comparison with the pro
duction of a year ago is not exactly a
correct showing, for the 1908 crop was
just about half of what was produced
the previous season.
During the present season the acre
age of potatoes in the Pacific North
west, but more especially in Oregon,
shows the greatest increase for one
year ever noted here. While a large
per cent of this increase was in the
Willamette valley, most of the addi
tional acreage was planted in Eastern
Oregon.
Eastern Washington and Idaho like
wise have a very heavy potato acreage
increase and the production there will
be much greater than during any pre
vious year. Western Washington ha
a greater acreage of potatoes than a
year ago, but the difference in favor of
this season is not great so far as the
additional planting is concerned.
Potato crop prospects could scarcely
be improved over what they are in
Oregon, Washington and Idaho this
season, and the same is stated to be
the case in California. In Eastern
Oregon, where some of the poorest
showings were made in grain produc
tion this season, the crop of potatoes
never looked better.
In the Willamette valley, potatoes
will snow better quality this year than
ever before and the sizes will be just
that which gained.for this section the
reputation of growing the very best
potatoes in the entire United States.
In seasons previous to the present
one, the potato acreage and production
of Eastern Oregon, Washington and
Idaho had little, if anything, to do
with prices at Portland or San Fran
cisco, but this season each of these
sections will be a strong factor in the
market and unless all signs fail prices
will reach a lower figure than for some
seasons.
Potato prices have been so high
along the Pacific coast in recent years
that the trade can scarcely come to
think that lower prices will again be
in effect With such a heavy increase
in acreage and a production so much
greater per acre than normal, the sup
plies will be fully as great as any de
mand would justify, and that being
the case, present out of line values will
go out of effect
Train Falls Into River.
Kansas Citv.- Mo.. Julv 26. At lanaf
two persons are known to be dead, one
trainman is tnissincr and hetcoeon ok
and 30 are injured as a result of a
wreck or Wabash passenger train No.
4, 30 miles-east of here tonight The
train fell into the Missouri river, where
the track had been weakened bv a land-
slide. The engine, baggage car, mail
car,smoker and a dead-head sleeper,
plunged nito the water and were com
pletely submerged.
OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
PRUNES SOLD GREEN.
Salem Growers to Ship 30 Cars to
Eastern Market.
Salem A new era in the prune busi
ness of the Willamette valley was ush
ered in, when the independent prune
pool, representing about 2,000,000
pounds of fruit, practically decided to
accept a proposition from the Earl
Fruit company, of San Francisco, for
about 30 car loads of green prunes, to
be picked and shipped to the Eastern
markets at once. The price offered is
40 cents per crate of 24 pounds, the
prunes to be accepted and paid for at
this rate before leaving Salem. The
growers are told they will also get all
that the prunes bring in the market
over and above this figure. Each car
will hold 12 tons.
The Eastern Washington and Idaho
crop has been sold green for several
years. Last year the output of that
section was 1,600 tons. This year
there is a light crop, amounting to only
about 350 tons, and the dealers in green
fruits are seeking to make up the de
ficiency by buying Oregon's Italian
prunes, which are admitted to be better
than either the California or Washing
ton products. Last year the growers
of Washington and Idaho realized 30
tents per crate of 24 pounds, or about
80 cents per bushel, for their green
prunes, which the Salem growers con
sider more profitable than selling the
dried fruit.
Leading growers state that 30 cars
can be picked from the orchards of the
members of the pool at this time and
not decrease the output of dried fruit
to any extent, as the prunes that re
main will attain a much larger growth
than if none were removed.
POWELL INVITED TO SALEM.
Fruitgrowers Want Demonstration on
Pre-Cooling of Fruits.
Salem S. G. H. Powell, of the
United States department of agricul
ture, will be the guest of the Salem
board of trade and the Salem Fruit
union, and will be taken out through
the fruit country in an automobile.
The department has been engaged
this year in pre-cooling and shipping
demonstrations at Puyallup and other
Western points, and an effort will be
made to have Mr. Powell sent to Salem
next year to take up this line of work.
Just at this time, when the shipment
of small fruits to the Eastern markets
is being undertaken, it is believed the
aid and experience of the government
experts would be of great value to the
fruit industry in the Willamette valley.
Normal Property Leased,
Salem At a meeting of the executive
committee of the board of normal
school regents the action of Secretary
C. L. Starr in disposing of certain
property of the schools, was confirmed.
Part of the buildings at Monmouth
were leased to the school district and
all of the property at Drain was leased
to district No. 22, Douglas county. At
Ashland and Weston caretakers were
employed to look after the buildings
and part of the equipment sold.
Smelting Plant for Santiam.
Albany The mining district of the
Santiam which is tributary to Albany,
is to have a $100,000 smelting plant,
according to Paul T. Gadsen, of Port
land, who was in Albany last week.
He is representing the Wilson-Gadsen
company. He said that work would
start as soon as the wagon road to the
mines was completed. The smelter
will be on the properties of the Free
land, Electric and Gold Creek mines.
Regular Mail Service Now.
Prineville After three years' con
stant effort by patrons of the discon
tinued Crook postoffice, which was lo
cated in the Bear Creek country, 55
miles south of Prineville, regular mail
supply was begun Monday, July 19. A
series of four prostoffices have been
eaahlished by the postoffice depart
ment for the accommodation of the res
idents of the district affected, some
400 in number.
Canal to Waldo Lake Completed.
Eugene Simon Klovdahl, a local
civil engineer who has charge of the
work of building two canals through
the solid rock leading from Waldo lake
to tributaries of the Willamette river
for irrigating purposes, has arrived in
Eugene from the lake, reporting that
the canal leading from the lake to the
North Fork had been completed and
work had started on the cut to Salmon
creek;
Coos Bay 'Wants Artillery Company
Marshfield The members of the
Young Men's Commercial club are be
coming active in boosting Coos bay.
One of the steps taken is to push the
organization of an' artillery company
here. A committee headed by Dr. E.
Mingus will confer with the National
Guard officers. Many young men have
already signified their willingness to
become members.
Huckleberry Crop Ripening,
Weston From the Blue mountain.
at Camp Cold Spring and Camp Mc-
uougal, about 13 miles east of town.
the huckleberry crop is reported ripen
ing and is said to be larger and better
than for many years.
Professor Tausch Reinstated.
Salem Professor Edwin Tauaeh.
who recently failed of re-election to
the facultv of Willamette tinivernitv.
has been reinstated, and will have the
chair of Latin during the coming school
year.
WANTS STATE NORMAL.
Hood River Citizens Think They Have
Site for Proposed School.
Hood River At an enthusiastic meet
ing of the Hood River Commercial club
the citizens went on record to boost
Hood River for the location of the state
normal school, when the matter shall
come to a vote next year.
D. J. Treiber led in the discussion
favoring Hood River, and assured the
citizens that a large number of the
most influential men in the state would
favor the plan. Truman Butler, cash
ier of the Butler Banking company; P.
S. Davidson, secretary of the Lost
Lake Lumber company; A. D. On
thank, real estate dealer; C. D. Nick
elsen, secretary of the Commercial
club, addressed the meeting, favoring
Hood River as the location for the
school.
It was argued that Hood River wai
the logical place for the reason that the
Willamette valley now contains the
state institution at Eugene, the agri
cultural college at Corvallis, and de
nominational schools at Forest Grove,
Newberg, Philomath and Salem.
The Hood River normal will be fea
tured at the next meeting of the Hood
River Commercial club. The grange
bodies of the valley will be solicited to
lend aid.
Electric Line Promised,
Eugene To add to the efficiency of
the local street railway system, the
Portland, Eugene & Eastern Railway
company has received from the factory
in the East an additional motor car and
two trailers, the business of the line
having outgrown the equipments. New
lines are also being built and projected.
A prominent official of the company,
while in Eugene a few days ago, said
that a portion of the proposed line be
tween Eugene and Salem would be built
this year as far north as Junction City,
Deschutes Canal Breaks.
Bend A break has occurred in the
big canal of the Deschutes Irrigation
& Power company, and before the head
gate could be closed, 200 feet of Burn
ing was carried away. The damage to
the irrigation company will amount to
$3,000. A force of men was put to
work at once to repair the break, but it
is feared water will be shut off for at
least ten days, and as the farmers are
much in need of water these warm days
tne loss will be extensive.
Wo-k Commenced on New Road.
Eugene Surveys for the Eugene
Florence railway, which is being pro
moted by the Lane County Asset com
pany of this citv. will bpirin this week.
Ac'ual construction is expected to start
in August. Over a third of the $150,
000 required before construction work
is commenced has been raised and none
of the heavy capitalists have yet been
seen.

EQUIPMENT GOES IN.
Rush Orders Given for Railroad Con
struction on Deschutes.
TTio Dalles. Julv 26. All yesterday
fnnr.hnnie teams, hauling wagons piled
high with railway camp equipment
have trekked out of The Dalles, nouna
fnr the Deschutes river. Beginning at
7 o'clock in the morning it was not
until 6 in the afternoon that the last or
the 40 wagons shipped here by Porter
Rrna . railroad contractors, who are
supposed to be working for the Hill
railways, wended its way to we sourn
ess L
Indications are almost conclusive
that Porter Bros., intend to establish
not two, but five or six camps, as if
preparing to cover the entire ground oi
the Oregon Trunk line surveys. They
themselves did not know, was the re
ply given by representatives of the
Oregon Trunk to inquiries as to the
number of camps and places of location.
Every indication is that men and
equipment were secured hastily, and it
is believed here to be true that the
contractors only know in a general way
where the camps will be established.
Either a sudden decision to contest
with Harriman for the traffic of Cen
tral Oregon or the sudden acquisition
of knowledge that tne uregon irunK
would be down and out very soon unless
it began construction is believed to be
the cause of the rushing of men into
the Deschutes country.
Either alternative raises conjecture
as to whether Porter Bros, are playing
a hold-up game on Harriman or are
backed by James J. Hill or actually in
tend to build a railroad themselves.
BLERIOT CROSSES CHANNEL.
French Aeronaut Makes the 22 Miles
in 23 Minutes.
Dover, July 26. Louis Bleriot, the
French aviator, accomplished the re
markable feat of flying across the Eng
lish channel Saturday in 23 minutes.
The distance from his starting point,
near Calais, to Dover, is about 22
miles, and he therefore traveled at the
rate of nearly a mile a minute.
The aviator left the French shore at
4 :30 and within a few minutes sighted
the white cliffs of the English coast
He descended gracefully in the North
Fall meadow, behind Dover Castle, at
4:53 a. m.
M. Bleriot looked little the worse for
his hazardous trip, although his foot
was burned by petrol. This gave him
some trouble, and he had to be assisted
to an automobile which was waiting.
He drove to the Lord Warden hospital,
where he was greeted enthusiastically.
A French torpedo boat destroyer
followed the aeroplane, but so swift
was the speed of the machine that the
destroyer was soon left far behind.
Although the start was made in calm
weather, the wind soon rose and a
strong breeze was blowing at the time
of the descent, making the perform
ance all the more noteworthy.
The French torpedo boat destroyer
arrived at Dover at 6 :50 with Bleriot's
wife and a party of friends on board.
By his achievement Bleriot wins the
special prize of $5,000 offered by the
London Daily Mail.
MOORS FIGHT SPANIARDS.
Tribesmen Put Up Desperate Fight
Against Trained Soldiers.
Malaga, Spain, July 26. The steam
er Menorquin, with 80 wounded aboard,
arrived here today from Melilla, where
the hospitals are overcrowded. Pas
sengers on the steamer declare that the
residents of Melilla are panic-stricken,
the successes of the Moors giving rise
to the belief that they will swoop down
on the city itself. Friday's battle was
sanguinary, there being much hand-to-hand
fighting.
The Moorish tribes now gathered
close to General Marina's camp are es
timated at 16,000. Their recent losses
are said to have been nearly 1,000.
The Spanish forces lost not less than
3.000 men.
When the battle became general, the
Spaniards endeavored to trap the Moors
between two lines of fire. The tribes
men, however, were too wary and
fought desperately. They retreated
only when they were literally hurled
back at the points of Spanish bayonet.
At dusk there was a lull in the fighting.

will not admit that his company is
working for Mr. Hill, but insists he
is not in the employ of Mr. Harrimaa.
Mr. Porter is the contractor militant
who built the North Bank for Mr. Hill
in the face of Hariman's active tod
sometimes forcible opposition.
In this city the supposition is that
Porter Bros, are the construction
agents of Mr. Hill.
CHICAGO GRAFT EXPOSED.
indicted Detective Collected $9,000
a Month for Protection.
Chicago, July 24. Stories of graft,
astounding in extent and detail and
revealing conditions beyond . belief
were told to the grand jury today and
were followed by the immediate indict
ment of -Detective Sergeant Jeremiah
Griffin, of the Desplaines street police
station, known as Inspector Edward
McCann'B "man Friday."
He is charged with demanding and
accepting bribes from dive keepen,
gamblers, cocaine sellers and disrep
utable women of the West Side levee.
There are 25 counts in the true bill
voted against the Bergeant each set
ting forth a separate offense. Upward
of $9,000 a month was collected by
him from dwellers of the under world,
according to the indictment and more
than $150,000 in all is said to have
been delivered to the Desplaines street
police excutives.
The more startling phase of the in
vestigation lies in the fact that the
trail has been rapidly followed to the
city hall, and it is now said that Mayor
Busse's confidence in some of his most
trusted advisers has been sadly be
trayed. Similar conditions are said to exist
in half a dozen other police precincts.
JAPAN GROWS RESTIVE.
Wants Equal Tariff Rates With Other
Nations.
Washington, July 24. Japan un
doubteldy ia becoming restive under
trade conditions imposed in her treat;
with the United States. This recently
was made evident when she proposed
to this government that negotiations
for a new treaty be begun at once, not
withstanding the fact that the present
treaty does not expire for two years.
Our trade interests in Japan, however,
are not suffering and for this and other
reasons this government did not see its
way olear to discuss the questions in-,
volved before), the expiration of our
treaty in 19H.
Under the most favored nation clause
of the treaty, Japan extends to the
United States all the conventions!
rates which it has granted to Great
Britain, Germany and France. On tie
other hand, none of the reduced rates
authorized in section 3 of the Dinglej
act, which were granted by the United
States to certain foreign countries, re
extended to Japan.
