HOOD RIVER GLACIER, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1004.
WHAT THE OREGON EDITORS SAW Brother Moor heed, editor of the June tionCitv Time and Ex-Preident ot the Oregon PreHg association, gives graphic description of a recent tide through the valley. Thia writeop, M ft whole, it fairly good, but when our brother itatei that "the town ia not pretty," and the valley it more picturetqu than beautiful, he disolavi an originality at conclusion worthy of note; lor 01 trie wiousanas 01 ( visitors who nave come 10 us, ne is m onlv one wto has not greatly admired the wwnderful scenic beauty of oar ral ley and tow. As. Mr. Smith puts it: "Bro. Moor head was evidently oafusiii in bit ob servations, not by the fair in the pavil ion, but presumably by theair in the wagonette in which ha rode." Brother Stewart of the Fossil Journal, rode In the second wagonette, and evi dently not benefitted by inters! at tractions, writes: "Mount Mood, snow clad, majestic, eternal, seeming but stone's throw from the head of the val ley .there caps one of the grandest scenes vet gazed upon by the eyes of man," and thus wrote id omne genus, which may be rendered "the whole gang." Indeed ft required the repeated In tistance of the conductor of the party to attract Brother Moorhoad't attention to objects of interest that were constant ly unfolding to view. There were evi dently other objects of beauty that he preferred to gase upon, and his notes afford ample proof of his Indifference to extraneous views and even his lack of cognizance of time. He says "It waa Sunday, and we had ft Jehu for driver, and took refresh ments at Beulab Laud." Now Bert Stranaban and not Jehu drove, and the drive was not on Sunday, but on Satur day morning, and on Saturday afternoon our esteemed brother departed for Port land. Brother Moorhead was not in Hood River on Sunday at he states. We sincerely trust that when Brother Moorhead has recovered hit mental equipoise he will visit Hood Elver again, and next time with hit charming wife, and we will take it upon ourselves to demonstrate that Hood River has many beauties other than those that wear ecnrkt. All Streets Business- streets. Junction City Times. We spent last Friday and Saturday in Hood River, the secastou being the annual meeting of the Oregon Press as sociation. It is not our intention to speak of the meeting of the association in thia article, but will devote a little sjoe to that thriving city. Like th city of old, it it situated on ft hill and cannot be hid. In the city proper all streets are business streets. It is not a f retty place, but it it full of business, t ia backed up by the famous Hood Hir er valLov. The citizens of the place tendered the members of the press an eicursion up the valley, and a party of 24 took advau tags irf the opportunity. It was Sunday but we had a Jelia for driver; we passed through Jerioo anil took ret res li meats at Beulab Land. The valley is more picturesque than beautiful, ami af ter traveling a few miles you will feel like reversing that statement. There are soots where the large rocks have hardly room to stand, and then again tli soil is perfectly f nee from rock of any kiwi. We (mntrou great strawberry fiVef that made our mouth water to think alxxit tlieni. The strawberry output last season amounted to wu.utiu crates valued at SIZo.lHX). Land suitable for the cut tore ot strawberries is wortli lUX) per aura. Jehu cracked his whip and we whirled around thrifty orchards loaded with frait. This is certainly the home of the big red apple. The soil and climate seem particularly adirpted to the sue' cewiul culture of apples, but it requires work and lots of it. If a man sets out an orchard and expects the Lord to take care 01 it, mi snorts will be a howling laiiure. i lie pests are ttiritly and vig orous and the trees need constant care I was Informed that rrmnv of the trrow era, the successful ones, actually lived in their orchards. These will bear in four years and reach perfection in eight. The apple crop this year l estimated at 70,' uhi Doxes, valued at ir.'S,(KK). The or chards are small, 30 acres being the bhu al site. One orchard, was pointed out to us that yielded the owner 11,100 per acre. We washed Bnlh,Land the old home of Hon. K.L.Smitli, where refreshments awaitea us in the way of applet, peaches. pears,cider fresh from the press, and wine. Our host was Mr. Vanderbilt, not Cornelius, but a better man. His hospitality waa Mexican, as hit home and everything in it was ourt. The valley was up hill and down and a level tract of tea acres Is an exception j.ue sou is loose ana mellow and never bakes. Irrigation is used only for grass es. The valley eon ts Ins about 60,000 acres or tillable land, but only about o ,w it ia MKivaiKM. l tie river is a lovely stream with numerous cataract and falls, 'i he engineer's estimate of the power ia 10,000 horse power per mile. We had to climba hill to get out of town into the valley, and as we re turned on the opposite title, , we sailed down the mountain side at a rate that made us think about our past life, 'live roaa was grauea and graveled with a scree of gravw and as smooth as t floor. Hood River hat population of 1,800, lown property ia valuable and while residence lots hung around promiscuous ly on the hills, they are "out of sight" in price. A lot close in sells for $1000 to IfxM). with large rock scattered in wild profusion over them. They sell, bow ever, and the town is prosperous and thrifty. i ue Dieniuai iruit lair was in session and it was the grandest and most gener ous uippiay oi apples we ever witnessed. They were not exhibited bv the lilar. but whole boxes were on display. Every courtesy was extended lo the editors, every one of whom will bave a good word to say concerning the welcome and good treatment during their two day's visit, i ms euiire exhibit was purchased uy me Lewia a uiarlt commissioners and is now on the way to St. Louis and no doubt Oregon will be loaded with nine nuuons wuen tne awards are made. During the fruit fair and editorial convention tbe Olaeier issued a daily evening edition which wat not only a credit to the office but to the profession as well. The merchants of Hood River are enterprising, and when the solicitor started out to secure ads for the daily it wai thought six columns would be tufflcient to juetify the enterprise, but space was in demand and the Daily Glacier made in bow to the public car rying seventeen column. We acknowl edge courtesies received from the gen tlemanly publisher, Mr.Mue and Messrs Klythe and bia corps of able arsistants. The Glacier ia not cold as it lame woald surest, but in warm-hearted, enterprising and in love with the town and country. The publisher has twin babies, the prettiest and sweetest babies in all creation.

The Oregon Press association held its annual meeting October 14th and 15th at tlie picturesque town ol Hood River. Considerable business was transacted, of nature of interest only to the pro fession, looking to a belter general understanding among members of H,o fraternity, and to the framing of leu il lation of benefit to newspaper men and the Dublic alike. By courtesy of the good people of the town, a drive through the famous Hood River valley was given the visiting edi tors and their lad-el, who were at once enchanted and amazed as thousands of acres of apple orchards, strawberries and other fruits passed with kaleido scopic effect into view. Mount Hood, snow-clad, majestic, eternal, seeming but a stouethrow from the bead of the vallev. there cans one of the grandest scenes ever gazed upon by man, and its melting snows furnish the water that ;oes to make the winding, tumbling lood river, whence are drawn the many streams that give life and vigor to every growing thing in the valley ; lor this is a laud ot irrigation, where you get your moisture ju.t when you want it, and everything blossoms as the rose. In this valley are grown very exten sively, strawberries that are notexcelled anywhere tn the worm, and on a sun larger scale, apples of almost every known variety, of size and coloring so marvelous as to challenge the unstinted admiration of all who are privileged to see them. These hustling, wideawake Hood Itiveritea have got the apple business down to a science, being adepts In pol ishing, sorting and packing, and it is no wonder that they secure the very best prices going. This year they are get ting as high as $2.10 per 45-pound box of Kpitzenberg at Hood River, from Now York buyers, who cater to the best trade and are always on the look out for the best products. These apples average pound apiece 45 to the box and their ticaulifui coloring is at once the envy and despair of the artist who attempts lo reproduce it on canvas. Ami now a word or two concerning the soil that produces those world beating strawberries and apples. It is of a loose, sandy nature, and very rich, In truth, but not one whit richer than hundreds of thousands of acres else where in Oregon now devoted to wheat and other less remunerative crops. Thousands of acret In Wheeler and other Eastern Oregon counties, are capable of growing apples as lug, as handsome and as luscious as tbe lloorl River apple, and will lie doing so ere two more decades sliull roll around But it takes time and care, this apple growing business, also convenient trans Donation by railroads, which by and by wilt traverse this whole state even as the arteries intersect the human body. Hood River has our best thanks for the double obiect lesson it has given us, first demonstrating what the soil can do when made the most ot by human ingenuity, and, second, In letting the whole world know It. They are not hiding their light under ft bushel down there, by any means, and are but reap ing a richly merited reward in the extraordinary interest In their fruit lands that Is being manifested by not onlv the people of Oregon, but of the entire nation as well. Apple and strawberry lands are sell imi all the way from liuti to 4iR) per acre, according to condition, quality and location. Some say that these prices are ruinous, and will bankrupt the buyer, but hearken ft moment, say we to the doubters. Far away In bonnie Scotland theie is a strawberry section very similar to that at Hood River, only more extensive, and we might say more intensive. There the writer first saw the light, and there he became acquaint ed with the art of straw berry and rasp berry farming. Krom one acra be has often soon four tons of berries harvested in one year, bringing a price of 40 pounds about $U0i) per British ton, or a total of $00 mt acre. One mun would pay as high as $ iiiU rent per year for one acre and with his children do all the work upon it by hand, spading every inch of the ground, and off that one acre would rear and educate a healthy, honest, industrious? (itxl-(earing family. This is not a dream, but merely one of many actual cases. To be sure there are many others there who raise berries on a far larger scale; we merely cite this case to show what can be and is being done along this line bv Industry, perseverance and applied intelligence ; also to demonstrate that values at Hood River are still far Mow the top notch, and that it will pay to give $100 and even more tier acre for lands that will produce berries or apples In such profusion as is the case in the Hood River valley. Those who lift their hands in holy horror when told that a thousand dol lars worth of apples have been raised on ono acre in one year, should do a little private investigating before branding their informant as a colossal Ananias, and tlieu they will make the old, old discovery that some things exist that were not dreamt ot in tneir philosophy. In Sears A Porter's orchard we saw one ten-vear-old tree loaded down so heavily that it would have been impossible to bave found ft bare spot on which to hang a si utile additional apple. Hon. E. L. Smith, the brilliant president of the State Horticultural society, who accompanied the editors, and who, by the way, would make no slouch of an immigration agent himself, estimated the apples on this one tree at thirteen bushels, wortli -7.;M, and there teemed to be dozens of trees just as good, in this and other orchards. In tact, in Beulab Land orchard, which ia one of quite a number of orchards planted in the valley by our friend, the afore-men- turned L.'Simtn, the dean oi uood Kiver apple growers, we observed a number ot trees that seemed to us to contain a bigger crop of apples than the tree to which our attention was specirie- ailv called in Sears A Porter's orchard. Robert Burns wrote a stanza that has long seemed to the writer as if it expressed the Alpha and Omega of earthly happiness. It is this, and when he wrote it the poet must have had some such place as Mood Riveror Fossil, Oregon, in his eye: "To mak happy fireside clime To weans and wife, That's the true pathos and Bublime Of human life." One might sing pages of song In praise of 4he wonderful Hood River vallev, with never ft jarring note, but space AT HOOD RIVER the association had died at Eugene that day. The association was at once re convened, and a committee appointed to go down to Kngene to assist at tbe funeral ceremonies. Before adjourning forbids it here, and with hats oft to tbe thrifty, hospitable people of that par ticular ganlen spot of Oregon, we bid them for the present, goodby but not farewell. Editor Ned Blvtbe's boy baby took second prist at tbe baby show at the fruit fair. Tbe Journal baby boy was not eligible, having been produced in another county, else we'd have givisa Ned a rub for the honors. Editors Klythe and Moe, of the Hood River Glacier, issued a splendid edition of tbe Glacier during the fruit fair and editorial meeting. These gentlemen also did everything in their power to make the editors' stay in Hood River ft pleasant one. Among the newspaper people present wai that beautiful, hralnv. trood and grand old woman oi Oregon, Mrs. Abi gail Scott Duniwav of Portland, the pioneer woman suffragist, and sister of the editor of the Oregonian. We hope soon to see victory crown her efforts for the enfranchisement of her sex, for which cause Mrs. Duniway has long and ably battled. Her step is getting somewhat slow, but the same indomit able spirit that is characteristic of the Scott family is still within her, and will uphold her until she has won the tight the has fought so well. Tbe boys have a good Joke on Mana ger Ball, of tbe American Type Founders company, who attended the State Press meeting at Hood Itiver. It appears that Mr. Ball was not used, to ciuntry town sanitary arrangements, and by carelessly dropping a lighted match on a lot ot paper accidentally set tire to a small building on the bill In which he waited a minute for the wagon. He made a dash for a nearby garden hose and turned a small stream on the burn ing building, but failed to save it. He received a bill of $4.60 for lumber from the owner, which he promptly liqui dated. Immediately after the Press associa tion had adjourned, before tbe members left the hall, a telegram was handed in stilting that Ira Campbell, editor of the Eugene Guard and a past president of the association had punned a resolution of sympathy with Bro. Campbell in his Illness. The writer mourns the loss of one of bis best friends. For years be met with Bro. Campbell at the annual press meetings, and learned to know liiin thoroughly as a man of tine nobility of nature, generous to fault, and of inch a genial disposition that no one who knew him could help liking him. Lot of genuine Hospitality. (lervals HUr. Last week the Star editor visited Hood River and partook of the bountiful supply of red apples offered together with lots of genuine hospitality. The fruit fair was in progress as well as the State Press Association. We never in our experience saw so handsome a dis- filay of applet. They wero not only urge but beautifully colored and perfect flavor. We were taken over the valley for a carriage ride and it was delightful, indeed, with fairly good roads and a thickly populated community. It is estimated that 2800 acres are de voted to apple culture and mostly in small tracts, ami a consequent heavy population. The day was perfect anil everything possible was done for our pleasure. We were hospitably enter tained by Mr. Vanderbilt and family, including fruit, wines, cider, peaches and grapes, tie bad a lovely view and his place is well named "Bueliih Land." Our next Wp was at Sears and Porters, where we saw apples being packed for the New York market and learned that be received fj.SS per box f. o. b. rail. They anticipate a yield of 20,000 bushels off of 25 acres. We enjoyed this stop been use it demonstrated that the show apples were only a fuir sample of tbe marketable crop. These apple growers don't loiter they work. Work, irrigation and spray ing are the items that make the flood River apples famous. It's hard work, too, and lots of it. We shall ever remem ber the great pleasure we bad at Hood Itiver mid congratulate that prosperous section on the splendid newspaper they have and its more than genial proprie tor and assistants. Sees the Why or High-Priced Land. Mora Observer, It was the good fortune of the Sher man County Observer to be represented at tbe Hood River fruit fair, and at the lKtb annual meeting of the Oregon State Press association, held at the same place during the last two days of the fuir, Oc tober 14 and 15. Tbe fruit fair was a wonderful revela tion to us, and more so to strangers, concerning the resources of Hood River valley and its capacity to grow the most (terfect fruits and vegetables. We saw every kind of apples, 45 of which would till a standard apple box and sell read ily at $1.75 to $2 50 per box in Hood River. Besides apples there were in evidence pears, grapes and kindred irtiiis in great variety, it was essen tially a fruit fair, but monster cabbages, beets, rutabagas, turnips, etc., were there, also peanuts, walnuts, etc. Tbe writer had heard at different times what apjieared to lie exaggerated statements respecting prices of land in Hood River valley and wondered how any one could make expenses farming a small farm in that region. But it only needed one visit to the fruit farms to convince the most skeptical that sub stantial incomes are derived from just such little farms, and tbe larger ones in proportion. 1 he tacts are sustained by the number of fine residences scat tered over the valley, homes that any city would be proud lo havo within its borders, as witnessed by a Ill-mile drive, a treat to the Press association by the Fair association to demonstrate that all was not brass that the fruit on exhi bition was actually grown in the dis trict. We saw farms on that drive of 20 acres and less, from which an apple crop of from $1,500 to $11,000 had been produced, ami our wonder as to how a1 man could afford to pay $150 an acre for a Hood River fruit farm vanished in thin air. A walk throuith the :i0-acre orchard of Oscar Vanderbilt, Bculah Land, with not a weed in sight, was restful. One tree, not a large one, pro duced seven boxes of apples, at $2 per box. The trees are ltl feet apart. Considerable Important business was transacted by the Press association. The state Portage railway, The Dalles-Celilo .. ! ....... . cauai, i.ewis and v lark lair, and sug gestions for needed legislation, were "in telligently handled. Along the line of legislation the association will ask for the introduction and adoption of t measure adocated bv the Observer two years ago, intended to promote a better assessment of taxable values bv nuhli- city beneficial to every honest taxpayer.lt is iie law oi Illinois, snu is being worked to good advantage by the officers of Ben ton county, Oregon. Dalles Will (jet Some Benefit. The Dalles Chronicle. Lookiug about one at Hood River Saturday and noting the number of The Dalles people on the streets of the little city and the interest they displayed in the fruit exhibited by their neighbors, one would have been led to conclude that they were attending a district fair, in which at least every section of the county in which it is held should be in terested. Instead, save a few boxes of grapes and peaches that can't be beat, from The Dalles, and some fine apples from Mosier, it was exclu sively Hood River's fair, from which that section will derive benefit. And yet, what benefits one section of the country must needs benefit all. And so we were pleased to see the friendly interest displaye I by the Dallesites. nucn an exceptionally good exnibit ot what can be raised in the apple line in that vicinity certainly merits the praise and approval of every resident in the county. It is truly wonderful, particu larly to those who are unacquainted with tbe productiveness of our soil. Tier upon tier ot big apples, littie appleg.nch red apples, yellow apples, green apples apples of every size, color and flavor; but all tbe best. "Why," laid a man from tbe famous Santa Cruz county in California, "we can't come up to it. And what made them more attractive was the way in which they had been packed and prepared for exhibit. This was also considered in awarding the prizes, a decidedly difficult job, so say two Dalles men, R. H Weber and Frank Taylor, who had tbe unenviable position as judges. It is not intended that the light which was thrown on the fame of this wonder ful fruit country shall be hid under a bushel (not even of apples) but shall permeate the East and light up the path to Oregon, inducing many an Eastern er, hungry for the flavor of a good apple, tocome thitherward, tins was decided Friday, upon the visit of the Portland business men to the fair. Leslie Butler. of course, was not backward in speak ing up in meeting and quietly ruggested what a good thing it would be for Ore gon if the exhibit could be transferred to the state exhibit at St. Louis. One by one the visitors took up with the idea until they had decided it should be done and $280 were raised by them. Representatives of the state Lewis and Clark commission then added $:50 to the b mount and Hood River aureed to make up the remainder of the $700 nec essary to put the apples down at the world's fair. To this move, all Oregonians, who are aware of the inferiority ofthe fruit ex hibit at the fair, will add a hearty "Amen." "It's a Cold Day," Etc. Centervllle Journal. Tbe Hood River Glacier issued a dally during the fruit fair. There is not a better paper published in the Northwest in a town of 5(100 or lless. It's a cold day when tbe Glacier gets left. City of Enterprising Merchants. Ooldcndale Hentlnel The editor was down to Hood River Saturday to see the fruit fair and visit with the Oregon editors. The Glacier showed considerable enterprise in issu ing a daily during the fair. The Hood River merchants are good advertisers, making it possible for the Glacier to be tbe best country weekly in the North west. The Goldendule nine played two games of ball Friday and Saturday with playerB from the Portland league team and made a good showing. The fruit exhibit was excellent. It will be sent to the St. Louis fair for exhibition. No Poison in Chamberlain's Remedy.
