RATE ON APPLES IS UNCHANGED The report was current among the apple shippers Monday that the rail roads bad increased the freight rate on apples between Hood River and New York to $1.60 a hundred in carload lots. The rate last year was $1. General Freight Agent Miller had wired Agent J. T. Kinnaird that the rate this year would be $1.60. Manager Shepard could hardly believe this even when he saw the wire from Portland. Agent Kinnaird informed the Glacier that the freight rate matter 'was in an unsettled condition, and by Tuesday he was able to give out the information that the old rate of $1 a hundred would continue in force this year. Had the rate remained as first sent out by Mr. Miller it would have meant an additional cost of 26 cents a box in getting Hood River apples to the New York markets. As the bulk of this years crop iB sold, this expense would have fallen upon the apple shippers. The loss to them would have amounted to thousands of dollars. The railroads have granted a reduc tion in freight rates to California, but this is offset by a similar reduction from New York statu. York state Baldwins are rushing into the California markets, where the apple crop this year shows a shortage of 76 per cent, on a 00 cent a hundred rate. The rate from Port land to Los Angeles is 69 cents. Baldwin apples are selling in the New York markets, says Manager Shepard of the Hood River Applegrow ers' union, at $1.26 a barrel. This is 42 cents a box. If they can land them in I .os Angeles for an additional 29 cents they could be sold at a prolit for 72 cents a box. Hood River Baldwins intended for the California market have sold for $1 a box. The Davidson Fruit Co. is loading a car of Ben Davis for the China markets and is paying the growers 80 cents a box for the apples. A car of Winter Nellis pears returned the growers 90 cents a hoi; At the Churches. Valley Christian Sunday School at 10:00 a. m.; preaching at 11:00; Y. P. 8. C. E. at 6:30, preaching at 7:30.

Twenty five men with teams are busy rading for the new O. R. & N. freight epot at the foot of Irving street, and a block further west, half this number of men are rushing the work on the Hood River flouring mill. The warehouse for the mill is already under roof, and the first story and base ment of the mill completed. Two more Btorlei of 14 feet each are to be added to the mill, making it from the north side a four-story structure. The work is of a substantial order, everything be ing done under the direct supervision of J. P. Aplin, the manager of the mill. G. J. Gessling, secretary for the mill ing company, informs tho Glacier that his company is constructing the mill so that the capacity may be increased to 200 or 250 barrels a day with the addi tion of extra rollers. They expect to begin with a 100-barrel capacity. John P. Aplin, who is to be manager of the Hood River Milling Co., is higldy spoken of all over the state regarding his capabilities as a first-class and thor ough mill man. T. B. Wilcox of the Portland Flouring Mills Co., says Mr. Aplin knows more a bout operating flour ing mills than any other man in tint state. He is frequently called upon to repair mills when other men lind it an iinpoHsibility. Tho railroad company has lumber on the ground for their warehouse. Three or four narrow guage railways, upon which dump carts are operated with horses, carry the excavated earth and rock to the north of the railroad track, where it is UBed to make a fill for the extension of the main track toward tho river. The building for the Hood River Mill ing Co. will cost between $4,000 and $5,000. The milling machinery is said to bo worth tl'0,000. TO URGE THEM TO SPEND DAY HERE A. L. Craig, general passenger agent of the O. R. & N., wired Truman Butler Tuesday morning that lie would bo pleased to have him and Mr. Smith go to Portland Wednesday afternoon to accompany the Portland wholesale men as far as Hood River on the evening train, and urge them to stop at Hood River and view the fruit display. Itoth gentlemen will leave this after noon on No. 1, carrying invitations for each of the 200 Portland business men to sitend Friday in Hood River, see the apple show and take a drive through the valley at tho invitation of the Hood River Commercial club.
