HOOD RIVER GLACIER, THURSDAY JULY 6, 1905.
.1 ADMITS IT WILL BE N. P. ROAD (Coiitlmieil From Pnice I) making HrrmiKemeiitu for tliu expend iture of a tfrent deal of money in Hpeoulut.ive buildiiiR this summer. One thiiiR in mire, people from all over the c mntry have heard of the new mad and never in the hint or y of the eity has there been so many vinit orn to the city. Kvory day the lioatn briiiR them in and the ferry men tell of heavy business from Hood River showiiiK that the railroads are bring ing tbem in. White Salinon needs a harness mak er. A man with a small capital can do well in the city. A cobbler is also badly needed. OPTIONS IN ESCROW AT WALLA WALLA From Walla Walla comes the infor mation that C. 10. Moulton, a former right of way i;nut for the Northern Pacific, has 1 0'n operating west from that city, and 1ms secured options on practically all of the land for a route from Kuunenick through oastreu Klickitat county. Tbeco options, however, are boing held in etcrow iu a bank at Walla Walla. Some of the options aro about to expire iu a few days, and Agent Moulton is making an effort to have the time extended, telling tho farmers tint his company has net completed till preliminary ar rans'ouici t.-, and that it will take Kline considerable time to complete tho burveys. A number of the farmers granted tho concession, yet there were a few who refused to it.vmd the time unless the price for the rrg'it of way was in creased. It is the gondi i opinion of rail road people in Wall i Walla that an independent company is to construct the rand down the iner, and when it is completed that it will be turned over to tho Northern Pniiiic, which will send its trains to Portland over the new line from Kennowick. Successful in Skamania County. Special to t lie Glacier. Stevenson, Wash., July 3, The Pioneer cf tiiis city says: K. C. Payne, of Spokane, with hoadquhi ti rs in The Dalles, is iu Stoveni-on this week making contracts for right of way for tho Columbia liivor Navigation eoiupauv. Mr. Payne started at the west end of the county and will continue on up the river. He states that he has been very snccetslrl in making contracts, as he only a.-t.s for six months time. The sooner tl ev secure the right of way and get tho trains running, the better it will srit the people on the north bank of the Columbia. We are waiting patient!.'.', but if it does not come soon our t.t ience will cease to be a virtue; bi t we believe it is com ing, and not far distant, iether. To Enter Portland liy Tunnel. Saturday night the Portland Jour nal came out with a front page story to the elfect that The Northern Pacific company, after surveying seven differ ent routes for tho entrance of its main line from the new Columbia bridge into Portland, has decided on a tunnel Ki, te. It has completed purchase of a right of way on practically a straight line from the river bank opposite Shaw's island, through tho Kamm, Urown and Poacher tracts, bought a strip 150 feet wido through the land of R. M. Cannon and the University Land company to a point ut Columbia boulovard and Fowler avenue, and a right of way through live blocks of University Park to a place whore the tunnel will enter the hill and run un der Fowler avi nuu to Mock bottom. Tin re is g( od authority for the statement that tho Northern Pacictl will begin work within the next UO days on the new bridgo over the Co lumbia. Kvery auangement has been completed, nil preliminary surveys have been made, rights of way have been secured from Portland to tho Co lumbia, and all the necessary terminal grounds in Poitlui d have been pur chased. Every rail: oad ran who has been looking into conditions in tho North west in the l..-t it v7 years has come to the ci.cdiit-ion that l oitland is to be the PaciiiL ontt terminus for half a dozen ti-.,,:c: : inontiil railroads be fore l'.UO. .V'ci i t the head of the Northern Pari tin recognize these con ditions', and their plana are being made accordingly, with a view to placing the Northwest Pacilic in a commanding position. It is said Port land is to be mado the chief Pacific fnaet terminus of the road, and that ith the completion cf the Columbia river jetty and tho deepening of the channel there for passage of the larg est sea going vossols ti,is city will im mediately be made the port for entry for the bulk of orontalsihpping trade. With a fresh water harbor, many miles nearer than either Seattle. Ta coma or San Francisco to the orient, Portland will become the queen city of the Pacilic seaboard. Retneen Devil and the Deep Sea.

The most euhtusiastic meeting ever held at Mount Hood convened lust Satur day afternoon in the Mount Hood ball, when fifty of the ranchers got together and effected an organization to lie known as the Mount Hood De velopment league. The officers elected ure: U. M. Wishart, president; R. J. Mclsaacs, vice president; J. 11. Thomas, recording secretary; I. V. Latferty, corresponding secretary. No outside speaker was required to arouse the ranchers to the ueeds of their ow n community. For years they have struggled, building homes and clearing the wilderness, until now they felt that the time was at hand for them to enjoy more of the things that go to make the home more com plete, and the means of livelihood more secure. It was a meeting of men determined to accomplish what tbey attempt to do. The first topic discussed was the establishment of a telephone system. The need of telephone connection is apparent. The Cloud Cap Inn line was used by a few parties a year ago, but now the Inn people have reserved this line for their own use, thus mak ing a new system necessary. A com mit'ee was appointed to correspond with different companies and secure the one offering the service ut most reason rabie cost. Albert McKamey made a rousing speech in regard to good roads, and the discussion of the "coming rail road" naturally followed. A unani mous vote was passed in favor of hav ing a railroad built into the heart of the district that would furnish a means of transportation for tho pro duce of the ranches. A committee of three was appointed to confer with the Mount Hood Ruilway Co. in re gard to having their line extended. The last topic to be considered was the much-talked-of creamery. There is no part of the Hood River valley where a creamery is more necessary. No part of the valley furnishes such an abundance of range in the foot hills for cattle. No partgrovs more luxuriant clover and large root plants, things so necessary to produce rich milk. It was realized that there were not sufficient cows iu the neighborhood today to support a creamery. A com mittees was appointed to confer with committees from different parts of the valley as to secure a creamery at some central point. The next meeting of the league will be held the last Saturday in July, at which time the different committees will report. R. J. M. GET POOR BERRIES FROM HOOD RIVER S. P. Rrown is iu receipt of the fol lowing interesting letter from C. D. Nickulsen of Hendricks, Minn., who makes some pointed comments on the berry business: "I want to tell yon something of the strawberry business at this end of the line, as it may interest you, and as we are both shippers. The Hood River berries had practically a clear market hero this year. The Florida berries were the first to appear. They are scarcely worth jjhe name. They are small, soft and without flavor, un packed, and the hallocks are only two thirds full. They sold for l.ro and 2()c per pound. The next are the Missouri berries. They are a good average with the Hood River in size, but not in firmness and. flavor. They sold for 10 and 5 cents per box. They come unpacked and hallocks only two thirds full. They were nearly gono when the Hood Rivers reached the St. Paul markets. 1 persuaded one of our local merchants to order a crate of Hood River berries, telling him of the excellent quality and pack of the fruit, but he said they were so high he was afraid that he could not sell them. However, 1 urged him to get a crate, telling him of their excellent size and appearance and assuring hiin that he never saw such fine ber ries before. Finally, on June 12, he ordered a crate from St. Paul, paying &l.2f f o. b. They arrived. I was called to see them, and as 1 looked at them my face experienced that pecul iar hot sensation that we sometimes undergo when we are thoroughly ashamed or disgusted. I at once de clared that they were not Hood River berries and sought tome method to prove a fraud, but the number and stamp was there to vindicate the truth that they weie Hood Rivers. Theie was scarcely a i tier berry to be found. They were small, deformed and altogether a measly looking outfit. It is by such a process that we destroy our own market iu this country. The merchant had to eat jnost of tbem himself, as he could hardly sell them and come out even after paying ex press from St. Paul. He swore by all that is good and bad that be would never handle auother crate of Hood River lierries, and it left me in rather a bad liht, after the strenuous rec ommendation that 1 had given tbem. "Hot I suppose this brother who had put out such a dishonest pack is one of the knockers now for a fat price for bis crop. It would be a blessing to tho honest shipper if the good Lord would blight his crop next year, unless he 'repents and turns from tho error of his way.' I know it is difficult for the shipper to prop orly grade each crate. It requin time and care, hut it would pay, : it would preserve our market in this country. If these lierries had been stamped plainly 'second grade' it would have preserved our good uan e with the retail merchant and con sumer. "With a little rustle at this end of the line and one crate of samples (put up in quarter crate lots) from each shipper in Hood River, the entire output of Hood River berries could lie disposed of at a profitable margin in North Dakota and Minnesota. This is a gieat market if we could only distribute our own fruit here PROPERLY and HONESTLY GRAD ED. The grower pays heavily for his gin of omission by not having three or four honest representatives at this end of the line to force a de mand upon the markets for our fruit upon the basis of real merit, honesty iu pack. "Wisconsin berries follow ours on the market and bring 10 cents per box. They are poor compared with ours. The Minnesota lierries are now gettiug ripe and are selling for 10 and 15 cents per box, unpacked. Tbey stand next to the Hood Rivers in quality and size. As I see the berry business from this end of the line, I am persuaded that there should be but one concern shipping into this market, or if two, they should work together there. Our own berries would not enter into competition in HERE SATURDAY A. II. Iea, field superintendent for the Hazelvvood Citamery Co , if Port land, sends word to tl.o tilacier that, barring any serious accident, be w ill be here Thorxlev. July 8. and tliht it will give him 1-umiiy to meet the people of Hood River who ere inter ested iu the liovelol meiit of the dairy industry. A meeting has therefore been railed for a o'clock Saturday afternoon at the rooms f t he Commercial club iu this city, when the leport of the com mittees named at last week's meeting will te heard, and a conference held with Mr. Lea regarding the establish ment of a crei.mery route in the val ley. All farmers and business men interested are ivrgebtly :o.;iientou to be pieseut. IT WAS BIG DAY FOR LYLE PEOPLE Special to the Glacier. Lyle, Wash., July 5. No hold backs wore placed on the patriotism of the small boy and the liberty-loving old folks here yesterday. Tlu.y cut her loose from the time that the sun peep 1 from behind the mountain till this morning was proclaimed by the hands on the dial. It was a genuine old fashioned cele bration. The small boy was in his element. The old man who had many marks on tho stock of bis gun, noting "good Indians," got iu the spirit and forgot the burden of seventy years. One of the pleasing incidents of the celebration whs the family re unions. In knots and crowds they gathered and pleasantries wete the order of the day. A large platform whs erected and here the orator of the day told of the wonderful achievements of the people of Washington, the mention of a new road eliciting rounds of applause from the ranchers. The big picnic dinner mid the ball in tho evening were enjoyed anil the day will long be remembered as one of the great bi I days in Lyle. (Juiet Day at White Salmon. Special to the Glacier. White Salmon, Wash., July 5. The Fourth passed off very quietly and devoid of any accident whatever. Most all took advantage of the great celebration at Hood River. There were a number of family gatherings and picnics observing tho day in so ciability, rather than noisy demon stration. Many went to Trout Luke and a number attended the clam bake at Mountain Hrook. There was a grand ball in tho evening. (Main Rake at Mountain llronk.' Special to the Glacier. Pine Flat, Wash.. (Mountain Hrook) July 5. The big clam bake yesterday was ono of the happiest events that ever occurred in the livos of the peo ple in this section. How people did eat clams, and how far they did come to eat them, too. There was nothing to mar the happy occasion. White Salmon sont a large "delegation. The oxercises were interesting, but the real big feature was tho eating of the clams, fried chicken and roasting ears. Oration at Trout Lake. W, H. Colo, who was in from Trout Lake yesterday, says there was a rous ing celebration of the Fourth at that place. Professor Miller delivered the oration of the day. There was an old fashioned picnic dinner, in which all participated. Games and races fur nished amusement to young and old. the same market, and we could real ize a safe margin, even if tho Miss ouri berries are on the market. For there is no comparison between the two dilferent berries. Well, Brown, good luck to you. Hope our berries will bring a profitable margin." LOCAL OPTION WINS DECISION The Oregon supreme court by a de cision handed down .Monday has up held the validity of the local option law of this state. The decision was rendered on the suit of P. F. Fonts of this city, who sought to recover a re bate on his saloon license, which fee he had paid in advance before the law became operative. This decision will necessiate tho city council appropriating nearly in rebates to the saloon men of Hood River, whoso plai.es of business were closed by carder of the court last January, because of the prohibition election last November. On the refusal of the city council to pay this rebate last winter, Fonts took the matter to the circuit court, where Judge lirarlshaw reiilered a de cision against the city. This decision has now been upheld by the supreme court, in a decision prepared by Chief Justice Wolverton.

Many Hear Rev. Mr. Criisan. A large and intelligent audience greeted Rev. J. A. Crusau on his ap pearance Sunday morning in the pulpit of the First Unitarian church of this city. "The (lospel of Christ" was the topic, of his sermon, which was a masterly discourse on tho liberal idea or modern thought in Christian reli gion.

In the af ternoon, Rev. Crusan repealed the same sermon at the Union chapel at Odell. Rev. Mr. Crusan was accustomed to spending his summer vacations iu Hood River some years ago.
