Mail Tribune 100

June 23, 1915


Fourteen citizens were arraigned before the police court this morning for alleged violations of the city water ordinance. Fines of $5 apiece, with a remittance of $4, were imposed by Police Judge Gay, who announced that in the future violators will be given the maximum fine. The arrests were made during the three grass fires in the city yesterday.

The excuse of not hearing the fire whistle does not exempt anyone.

In the past, few fines have been remitted because the owners were not at home when the alarm was sounded. In the future, however, this will be no excuse, as it shall not be permissible to irrigate unless someone is left in charge of the work.

John Heckler, a taxi driver, was fined $5 because he failed to drive to the curb when the fire alarm sounded.

More than five tons of cherries, principally Royal Anns, have been shipped from  the Rogue River Valley thus far this season, according to information given out by the Rogue River Fruit & Produce Association, through which company the fruit was marketed. This is more than was shipped during all of last season.

The cherry crop is exceptionally good and surprisingly good prices are being received. It is said that fruit growers are beginning to see the advisability of growing small fruits. Through necessity, the fruit is being marketed close to home and commanding better prices than in eastern markets. It is expected that a large number of orchardists will grow small fruits and berries next year.
