Writing to the New York Tribune
Farmer on the airr.s and objects of the
National Horticultural congress recently
organised st Council Bluffs, James Handly
of Qulncy, 111., says
"The fruit growers about Council Bluffs
can fully appreciate the benefits of a per
feet union In efforts. From a compar.
tlvely small circle of country, which in
cludes the sloping hillsides on the bluffs
east lof the city, 100 or more carloads o
grapes are shipped annually. The pro.
ducers have a strong organization by the
name of the Council Bluffs Grape Growers
association, and Its affairs are sufficiently
well managed to secure prompt sales at
best prices. The Idea of canning or msnu
facturlng wines or jellies Is never enter
tained by the growera, as they are well
satisfied to market their crops promptly at
remunerative returns. . In conducting their
business on the scale' as required It was
found necessary to build a very lage and
strong warehouse to hold the fruit while
waiting for ears. The commodious build
ing supplies a demand for other purposes
before and after fruit seasons. On one
of Its floors the product of a beet sugar
factorty waa stored during the past season,
and Its basement has a storage capacity
for Ib.flOO barrels of apples, It can thus be
seen ' that this nlon of effort brings an
unlooked for Income of several thousand
dollars per annum.
The national congress should be a strong
controlling force In all of the exigencies
of the fruit business. In 1906, simply be
cause the apple crop was very good In
spots, the Idea prevailed that the harvest
would be something enormous, when, as
the final report showed, it was next to the
smallest crop ever gathered In the history
of the country. Many instances could be
cited where the prevailing Idea of a su
perabundant crop caused growers to lose
confidence In markets, and they allowed
the fruits of their labors to perish. In
many Instances where there was a lack
of buyers some enterprising producers
in efforts to help themselves, found strong
railroad and cold storage combinations
standing against them, and they were not
able , to overcome such obstacles. In the
cases referred to a national council could
have manifested Its power.
"The national organization should serve as
a guiding light along all the bearings of
the fruit business. I-ast year when it was
I very obvvlous In proportion to acreage of
orchards, we had the very smallest crop of
apples ever harvested In the country;
many growers lost money In crops which
should have brought the best returns. A
national council would have advised as to

To combat the dust In the western sec
tion of the city the West Omaha club was
formed Friday night at n enthusiastic
meeting which was held at the home of
Judge W. W. Slabaugh, 104 North Fortieth
Bt. For some time It hs been noticed
that the automobiles work up a dust along
the macadamised road on West Dodge street
which In summer time when the wind Is
blowing Is almost unbearable. To plan
ome scheme) whereby this dust may be
eliminated and also to Improve the streets,
thl club was formed last evening". A. G.
Plnkerton was elected president and A. I
Patrick secretary. The sprinkling of oil
was recommended its the most feasible
method of settling the dust question but
definite action was postponed until next
Wednesday night when another meeting
will be held Bt the same rlnce at S o'clock.
The work last night was simply preliminary.

RUMOR OF PROPOSED LYNCHING
Bond, the Murderer of Wrede, the
Reputed Object, bnt Nothing
Late last evening a rumor became current
that a crowd from South Omaha was In
the city bent on the lynching of Bond, the
convicted murderer of Wrede, the South
Omaha saloon keeper. About 11 o'clock
there were probably 100 men collected In
little knots on the streets surrounding the
Jail, but so far as could be seen they had
no motive and they kept their own counsel.
The fact they were practically all from
South Omaha gave rise to the rumor re
garding the proposed lynching. They all
left shortly fter that time, however, mak
ing no demonstration of any kind.
The police were notified, but by the time
they'arrived the men had disappeared. The
best Information available waa that Bond
wa not In the county Jail, but had been
taken to Lincoln immediately after sentence.

CRIME AND MATRIMONY MIX
Women and Two Men She Marrlea
Unravel a Rather Tangled
In the arrest of F. V. Mapes, B. E.
Crowell and Nell Dwyer Friday afternoon
by Officer J. B. Wilson, a peculiar matri
monial tangle and story of alleged crime
was unrolded to the police. The woman
was a former wife of Crowell. Leaving
him, she married Mapes, but after three
years with the latter, she listened to the
persuations of her former husband and re
