Hood Iftver Slacier
John E. Lathropof the Pacific North
went uttered truth aa well aa poetry
when he penned the following:
"The Columbia gathera its water
from ten thousand mountain streams,
which, when confluent, form the niajei
tic waterway of ' the globe. I'M" t,iat
great stream, the Orejon 1 evelopment
League haa gathered into one body the
rivulets of influence throughout the
' atate. Toe Columbia atanda for Ore
gon 'i poetry in commerce. The Oregon
Development League will stand for Ore-
fon'a future growth along material linea
he sunshine on a rcore of hundred
mountain peaks melts tho anowa that
crown their crests. '1 he warmth of com
mon sympathy will thaw the ice of pre
vious coldness between one section and
another. The Chinook winds in a
quarter-day, sweep away great snow
on the higher summit and bring dow n
vast flood lo All to overflowing the
banks of our mighty river. The forces
that started this Oregon Development
Lekgue are collecting in one great wave
of power that will sweep over the atate.
The retroactive dreamer of the past, the
ultra-conservative, the obstructionist,
these had better move from the path
way of that Hood, else they will be en
gulfed. It ia now the day of progress,
and the Oregon Development League
henceforth will he the engine to draw
the atate along its promised lines of ad
vancement." The city has reached the point where
it can no longer get along without fire
protection or sewer. Business is be
ginning to suffer for lack of the former,
and the lack of the latter is becoming a
serious menace to health. Jt is up to
the city council to secure both of these
needs at soon as possible. The Water
company claim to be in a position to
furnish an adequate supply of water for
all purposes, and if they can do so, the
city should give them the contract, in
stead of taking the risk of waiting an
other year for something better. The
right-of-way for the sewer ontlet into
the river has not yet been obtained, and
while the railroad company oppose the
opening of the street through their
right-of-way, yet it is apparently the
only course open. The city does not
wish to annoy the railroad company in
ny way, but the public interests are
paramount. It is to be hoped that the
city council will recognize the necessity
of taking some definite action next
Monday evening.
The Chicago Packer of July 30 is brim
full of comprehensive reports on the ap
ple crop of the United Btates and Ku
rope. From New York, New England
and Canada come reports of full crop.
In Illinois the outlook is reported
gloomy In Missouri and Arkansas
there will not be 25 per cent of a full
crop. The European yield will run
larger than it did lust year. Ameri
can apples will be needed there, but
they mutt meet the competition of a
healthy crop. From this it would ap
pear that high prices will not be expect
ed In continental markets. Iowa will
have a fair apple crop. The crop is good
in Michigan, but not so plentiful in the
Ohio valley. Colorado people are cheer
ful over their crop. California will have
about 00 per cent of a crop. And thus
the story goes. It is possibly a little
early to gather predictions on prices.

As they passed Cooper's Sour, with

The call meeting of a; p'-1 grower
and apple packers at the rooms of Un
commercial club last Saturday after
noon was largely attended. Two hours
and a half were occupied in the discus-
ion ot plans whereby the growers and
the packers could come to an amicable
understanding regarding wages And the
guarantee of a good pack. On motion
of F. V. Audits the whole matter war
then left to the board of directors to
decide as they saw fit.
At tlie oiieiiiiiK of the nieetlnir, A I
Mason, president of the Apple Grower's
union, Kitted the object ol the patncr-
ini2. the directors had loiind the
question of packing a hard problem to
solve, and wished to receive suggestion
from (lie growers ami the packers. Last
year, said Air. Mason, pome ot the
growers considered that the pack inn
cost too much, while the puckers be
lieved they did not receive enough for
wages The members of the union h
not wish to lower the grade of tlieii
pack, continued the president, but thev
do believe thev should lower the cost to
the grower.
Chris i.ettiiiian stated that his imck
lust year was not satisfactory He hail
everything handy for the puckers, and
most ot the truit wns lour-tier, yet hit'
jiacking cost him 10 rents a hox.
Mr. Avery declared he was new nt
the business, never having handled
apples until two years ago, therefore he
preferred to listen to growers with more
experience, lie had little limit to find
with the work last year.
J. W. Wicklmm had no particular
objection to make, except fiat Ins pack
ing cost mm too much last year, hut
this he laid to the lutein ss of the season.
Mr. Cash, who resides on the linker
place, HHked how apples were handled
;.. II I f: T-i : . ii
ill uoou iviver. i iiih geimcniau comes
from Idaho, where he has had consider
able experience in largo orchard.
Mason am wered the question by say ng
that tan lull the puckers were paid i
rents an hour for their work. This
Included Isinrd and the time occupied
in going from one place to another. The
packers furnished their own beds.
They frequently slept in barns.
J.U. Jarvis had no complaint to offer,
except that too many of his Kpity.cn
liergt. of . light color were thrown out,
when he thought them marketable fruit.
His apples cost him four cents a box for
packing. He hud the fruit graded
before the packers set to work on it.
Mr. Shoemaker had objections to the
packers baling their selection of apples
on color. For that reason he was forced
to stop the pack.
U. It. t'BHtner had no complaint to
make. He kept no record of the cost of
his pack. lie hud beginners in his
packing house who made as high as
I- a day, and girls who possibly made
less. He put the apples on a table
already graded. He believed that pack
ers should not be expected to have their
time taken np in grading and culling!
the fruit. It is too much trouble for
the packer, and results in too great a
cost to tlie grower.
F. 0. Church said things wore satis
factory with him, and tbut his pack cost
him five cunts a box, nut considering
W. J. linker hud no experience with
the union packers necaiiM' they were so
lute in go1 ting around to hi place last
year that he was rompullod to pack the
apples himself. His apples were (ticked
six week or two months, he said, be
fore the packers were ready to work for
President Mnsou explained that this
dillicultv was to he obviated this veur,
Kvery effort will lie made to give the
growers a square deal. He hoped the
members of the union would endeavor
to treat the direttors with the same
fairness that the directors expected to
exert toward the growers. lie hoped
the niemiier ot the union would deal
leniently with tho hoard, who were
endeavoring to profit by the mistakes
encountered last season.
Mr. Cash then explained the methods
of apple growing in Orchard Valley,
Idaho. In that country the apples are
packed in the orchard. The cold stor
age dealers who take the apples demand
this method of packing with the least
handling possible. Apples packed In
the orchard brought from 25 to 60 cents
more jier lox t1 an apple that hud to
receive additional bundling. There me
packing tables in every fourth row o
trees. At each table were six pucker-,
one nailer, one carrier and ten pickers.
I he packers had to sort the fruit. Tlii-v
had a gunge by which to grade lie
apples. Soon they learned to size tin
the fruit without the L'liBire test, (inl
and women did the packing. There

packing cost u cents a box, where the
fruit was wrapped ami layer paper used
In three and one half tier lien Davis
the cost wo reduced to It1 cents, and
for Jonathans 4 cents. The npple were
supposed to be handled as if they were
soft shelled eggs.
Mr. Avery asked if the apples i
Idaho were wi-d.
Mr. Cash replied that they were not.
He said the merchants in the Kast bn
been educated to know that the spiny
was necessary to produce perfect fiob,
and that it does not injure tho quality
of the apple to have the lime left oii
He believed bv packing the apples w itb
out wiping tliem; thev kept lonuer.
Nature give them an oily coating which
erts to keep the decay germs limn
the apple, and it is better that apples
are not wiped:
Mr. Mason explained I hut apple pack
ing could not be carried on in Oregon
orchard as the ruin would interfere,
and Mr. Angus added that the wind
would blow away all the pajn-r.
Mr. Carroll of Mosier, who will have
5,(XX) boxes of apples this year, said
heretofore he had sold his crop in the
orchard and the buyer had rooked after
the packing, but in regard to wiping
the ajiples, he believed this was a mis
take. He found those apples kepi
longer thut were not wied when picked,
lie believed the fruit eh uld lie sorted
for the puckers. The grower would be
more apt to lake lietter care of the
mall apples, which if saved, brought
nearly a much In the spring as do the
larger apples in the fall of the year.

li. V. Mo s raid his pack last year
cost hitn 7 cents a box. This he consid
ered too high. He did not believe the
grower should pay for the packer's time
in going from one runch to another.
Mason arose and had some more
intelligence to inipait. In his opinion,
he paid too much for beginners in the
packing srt. His four-tier apples e st
him H.7 for 90', which lie considered
too high. He said there were too many
iKifses in the packing houses lout year.
He al) believed the light colored apples
should lie packed by themselves, rather
than lie thrown from the box, as there
will tie a large number of light colored
Spitxeuliergs produced in Hood River
within the next few years, since the
young trees are very apt to bear light
colored apples. The directors will aim
to overcome tlii objection this year.
The packers were then called upon to
have their say.
K. W. Angus declared he was a grow
er as well as a packer. The packer
uiut-t put in all his time to get wages.
At too many of the farms last year,
there was insufficient light to enable
the packer to put in 10 hours of work.
The packers in going to a new place
were compelled to make their own ar
rangement for packing. Some of the
growers had no idea how the packing
tables should lie arranged, and all this
work must be counted in on the packer's
time if he is expected to muke a living
wage. Kurthermii:!', no grower took
the trouble to hitch up and take the
packing crew to the new packing place.
The tables were not uniform. In some
places he had to work in the cold with
an overcoat on. In other place it was
a dark barn where the door had to lie
kept closed or the wind would blow all
the wrapping paper outside.
Mr. Hlranalian, another one of the
packers, considered the pay received
last year small enouiih. Unless a far
mer had at leant 100 boxes, it is a losing
proposition to work by the piece, loo
much time is required in moving from
place to place.
Mason suggested a sliding rcale.Angus
said a sliding scale would he O. K. if
the packers were supplied with proper
tables. The cost of packing will come
hiuher to the small urower. A mm be
iieve the packers and tho growers must
get together and arrange their own
Mr. Cash said the urowers should
pack their own fruit; that they have
children who can do the work, and lur
thermnre the country will require pack
ers by the thousand in a few years.
The children must learn, or who will be
here to do the packing?
Muhoii replied that fruit dealer do
not want fruit packed by the grower. A
packer's label is required on all fruit.
Ham Campbell thinks t'i a day none
too high for packers. He preferred a
sliding scale for the different sized fruit,
and would hold the pucker responsible
tor Iiih work,
O. H. Costlier struck a hiiNlnest key
note when he declared member of the
union were making assertions which
would be dillicult to carry out when
closing contracts for the sale ot apple.
"We may have to accept the inspection
of the buyers, said lie. llie union
will have to live up to the conditions
that may be required." Mr. Castner
think the small grower should bring
their apples to a central point where
the packer could do the work.
Mr. Avery suggested the packers be
given rents an hour where less than
50 lioxes are packed at one place.
The debate drifted to the question of
leuciuug new pucKcrs. i resident ma
son said that with the good prospects
for packers in Hood Kiver there should
he little trouble in securing recruits
'"i'hIi preferred women puckers.
1". V. Angus moved that the matter
f payment for the packer be left with
the Isiard of director. The motion pre
. a led and the meeting adjourned.

guarantee ran have them at prices that will
compi le with any one. The cherries, peach
es, pears, etc', come from The Ilslles, the only
responsible nursery In that line on the Pacltla
coast that I know of. J. W. Kirk wood Is en
dorsed by the fruit men or Hood Ulver na the
only reliable, pra Ileal man in the country. If
any one requires signatures in regard to this
statement, 1 will furnish them. J. W. Kirk
wood has buried Ihe hatchet and acknowledg
es the fact from actual experience, that full
pruning Is best, aa It prevents early snow or
sleet from breaking the trees. It has the
tendency to ripen Uiem up and puts them in
belter condition to go through the winter.
