BECEMBER 23, IS98. appear from the action some of the fruit growers lust lay that the feasabillty of doing iwer'a Unlou and organizing under a new name is being discussed. It niny be that the old union lias outlived its - usefulness and that an organization with a . new name would draw more patronage and be more ciutttttful, but it is very doubt ful. The union has been a success from the start, and being managed every year by good business talent on busi ness principles, him grown steadily in favor. During the past year it shipped 00 per cent of the strawberry crop, and there Is no reason why it should not do even better the coming season. Its good record 'of last season promised increased patronage. Because the 80 per cent of the strawberry crop of 1899 asked for at the stockholders union was not Immediately pledged to the union some have become disheartened and talk as if the union had lost the confi dence of growers and had better be re placed by something under a new name. Others" still believe that the present union is stronger today than it ever has been, stronger than anything that may take its place; that it is only necessary for the officers' to go ahead and prepare their plans for the coming shipping season, and the majority of the fruit growers will again give it their patronage. The union enjoys a prestige that it has taken years to build , up. It has a name and reputation that is known to railroad men and commission houses wherever our ber ries have found a market. Agents of the transportation companies have al ready been here to consult the officers of the union in regard to shipping the crop for next year. But the union has not been in a position to transact busi ness with these agents . because it doesn't know what the growers want or are going to do! The stockholders of the union elected the best men from among their number, and re-elected them, and it would seem that it is their plain duty to go ahead and do what they think is ' best towards se curing freight rates and looking up markets. The fruit growers will do ' the rest by. furnishing the fruit and ship, with the concern that promises, by good management, the best returns to the grower. The Glacier believes that no stronger nor better shipping association can be formed than the present union, but it hopes something satisfactory may come of the meeting next Tuesday. Promises, it is alleged, were made on behalf of the administration when the resolution to annex the Hawaiian isl ands was pending last winter that no steps would be taken for many years looking to their admission, to state hood. Relying upon, these promises, many senators and representatives who were opposed to annexation reluctant ly voted for the resolution. Now the administration has offered a bill giving Hawaii a territorial form of govern ment and making possible its admis sion as a state. The prevailing senti ment In congress, it is .said, favors a government for Hawaii like that which has been established in Alaska. Cornelln8 N. Bliss, secretary of the Interior, has intimated his intention to resign. It was said the president, wish ing to do something for Oregon be cause our state took the lead in the great victory for the gold standard, would appoint Blnger Hermann to suc ceed Bliss, but Ethan A. Hitchcock of Missouri, at present ambassador to Russia, has been appointed. Someone has figured out that the moderate habit of smoking three 5-cent cigars each day for twenty-five years will amount to over $3,000. An ex cessive smoker, who begins at 18 and cotitiuues until the age of 68 (unless the . habit kills him earlier), will consume a fortune of from $25,000 to $50,000, ac cording to the number and strength of the clgara he Bmokes. . That excellent journal for fruit grow ers, the Oregon Agriculturist and Ru ral Northwest, is making an extra ef fort to obtain new subscribers during the holidays. Three copies in a club are given for $1. The Glacier has clubbing arrangements with this paper andean furnish the two papers for $1.75. "We put all our best manhood into the army," the czar of Russia is re ported to have said in his plea for uni versal peace and a better civilization. The fact thdt the United States will have to give its best manhood to the army is one of the strongest arguments against expansion or imperialism. Lieut. Hobson broke the record by kissing 267 women, young, old, hand some and plain, at a reception at Kan City on Monday. What ' desperate chances he is taking if osculation is as dangerous as it is reported to be by microbe sharps. The president's jubilee speeches down in Alabama and Georgia are already i i l l1 every rnuu uv . if l n m -rr tai n n 7Jjams oE 1 vfetif a T .1 beginning to bear fruit. A Southern senater gives notice that he will offer an amendment to the pension appro priation bill pensioning ex-coufederate soldiers. He evidently thinks that if the president desires "to Care for'the confederate dead" that the confederate living are more in need of assistance. Award of Damages. In the county court on Tuesday the appraisers appointed to assess damages for right of way at the mouth of Hood river for the Hood River Transporta tion and Boom I'o. iade their report. The appraisers condemn 36 acres of river channel and sandbar to t lie use of the Transportation and Boom Co. and allow the Hood River Lumbering Co. $2,000 danfages. For crossing t he land of the Lumbering Co. near Sandy Flat an additional $40 is allowed. Mr. A. Winans, appearing for the Hood Rivsr Lumbering Co., refused to accept the amount of damages awarded, which amount was tendered him in $20 gold pieces, and the Company has 20 days in which to accept the money or appeal the case to the circuit court. The cit izens of Hood River raised tills money by organizing the Hood River Trans portation and Boom Co. with a capital stock of $10,0(10 which was intended for improving the . river, and ' paying damages lor right of way. An assess ment was made to meet the payment of damages that might be made in favor of the Lumbering Co. Mr. Winans considers that the dam ages should at least have amounted to $20,000, while the citlzensof Hood River generally consider that. $2,040 is too much lor a purpose which will, 1$ is claimed, benefit Mr. Winans and his associates as much as it will anybody, they owning much valuable, timber land and j! her property that will nat urally be enhanced in price if a big saw mill, said to cut from 100,000 to 150,000 feet of lumber a day, is located here. - ; Mrs. Matlie Oiler is the owner of 83 63 acres of land at the mouth of the river, part of which, 36 acres, is con demned for boom purposes. Two years ago she purchased 49.79 acres of this laud for $500 the balance she pre empted or homesteaded. It is all of it sandbar or river channel, but it is the key to the mill situation. Honors for Hood River. Since our last issue Hon. E. L. Smith has received one gold medal, two bronze medals and four diplomas awarded to Hood River valley by the Oregon Industrial exposition. The medals bear the following inscription: "Awarded to Hood River Valley for best Association Exhibit (gold medal). Awarded to Hood River Valley Best Winter apples. (Bronze medal) Best Fall apples." On reverse side there is an engraving'of the exposition build ing. , Three of the diplomas were for apple exhibits and the fourth for 2d best building stone from the quarry of of Wilson Winans. We congratu late our fruit growers on receiving all the Hist premiums awarded to apples at the Portland exhibition. And this Is not all. Residents of Michigan and other states of the middle West have frequently contended that their apples were of superior flavor to those grown in this section, but Mr. Smith is in re ceipt of a letter from Supt. Doscln stating mere were no apples at tne umu ha exposition superior in flavor and texture than those snt by hitu from his Beulah Land orchard and that a medal was awarded him. . These "ev idences of superiority of our fruits should encourage growers to take better care of tbeit orchards. Not less than $10,000 was lost to our orchardists the past season by neglect in spraying aiit cultivation, and we are-glad to learn that our hoticulturists are determined that this condition of affairs will not occur again. . Keep Your Eye on Hood River' R. C. Judson, industrial agent of the O. R. & N., just returned from a trip to the Inland Empire, was interviewed by a Telegram reporter. He said: I have just finished locating a big lumbering manufacturing , plant at Hood River, and there are several other enterprises in contemplation at that place. The ones there are doing well. The canning establishment has been greatly encouraged by the manner in which its jrnducls have been received. One grocery house In Portland placed a trial order with this concern for apple butter recently and since that time it has been impossible to supply the de mand for this one product. Keep your eye on Hood River and the country up the Columbia, and you will see some truly wonderful things before long. Viento Items. December 20.

What Is the use of making a better article than your competitor if you can not get a better price for it? Ans. As there .is no difference in the price the public will buy only the better, so that while our profits may be smaller on a single sale they wil be much greater in the aggregate. How can yau get the public to know your make is the best?

During his short stay about town he has traded a band of horses supposed to be somewhere east of the mountains for a farm, bought a pretty good house, rented two or three others, posed as a Grand Army man, sponged several square meals, and he appears to be still on the hunt for other worlds to eonquor.
