A rx'ws iti'in from the Orvjron
Ajfrii'iilturul Collie in thin issu
nuTitions tlx; necessity for united
n'tion umonjr the fruit Krowera
of the state utid the various
cuiinties and urgva the t'stabli.sh
nicntof fruit cnnnerieH in dif
ftTcnt localities. That buk'kcs
tion is i" keeping with theelforts
of gome f thermit Rrowers in
this county, especially uround
the Wurren and Scappoohe neiKh
btirMKids. to huild and operate a
cannery where the fruit products
of the various orchards and gar
dens can he disputed of, thereby
insuring a market for these
lirfiticts. In this county rijfht
now there is most urgent need
fur such an establishment. There
ii no market for the fruits thut
arc produced now on the small
acreage of orchards and aniens,
that is. no rnurket where a fair
price ran he obtained. There are
thousands of acres of the most
productive land in the world that
could and would be put into fruits
and lurries if there was a mar
ket w here a price could he oh
tained that would pay returns on
the money invested and the labor
in producing them.
A fchort time bko there was a
movement started to organize a
company at Warren whose ob
jects were to huild and operate a
fruit cannery. Money was sub
scrihed, ollicers elected aid or
ganization perfected. The farm
ers and fruit growers were the
stockholders and everything
seemed to be in readiness for the
commencement of operations,
but for some reason the project
fell through and the orRanization
was dissolved. Then a move
ment was started t' huild one at
St Ih lens. hut this also has fallen t
by the wayside. It seems the;
reason for the failure of the War-j
ren project was the fear of the,
farmers that after the products:
were preserved and ennr.ed, noj
market could he found, for the
jobbers who ileal in that class of j
K"oils would not ngrve to handle j
them and the farmers came to
the conclusion that it would he j
a losing proposition. The jobbers
all have their 8ecial brands of
Roods fnen the east and Cali
fornia places and if an establish
ment started doinjr business here
the prices would be placet! so
low that our products would not
btintf enough money to pay the
expenses. We understand such
representations were made to
to them and it evidently had the
desired effect. Then the farmers
wanted the business men of this
city to establish a planf. which
was considered, but after looking
the matter over carefully it was
decided that it would not pay and
was dropped. What are the
reasons for this fear of failure to
pa? Just this; that the fruit
growers, farmers and everyone
else are after the very highest
price that can be obtained for
their products. If a cannery
was in operation at St. Helens
some of the produce men from
the city would invade the neigh
lorhood and ofTer a higher price
for the goods than a local organ
ization could alTord to pay pnd
the result would be that farmers
would, of course, sell for the
higher price and the plant here
would be operated, if at all. at a
loss. This has leen the experi
ence of several industries which
have started in the smaller places
and Would do doubt be the out
come here, unless there was ro
operation, and the only way to
have complete cooperation he
tween the fruit grower and the
cannery is for the fruit grower
to own the cannery, or at least
to h the principal owners. Then
if a city produce man should
come down and oiler a little more
nwinov f,.. ii... . i.. .
i products, ifnj
farmer and fruitgrower would
l.u.l I.:.. . ..
" mieresiin me cannery
and the result would be that the
produce man would get nothing.
That a market could he found
for the products of a cannerv
here, there can he no doubt. If
the jobbers of the city would not
handle it, salesmen could ! sent
out from the local cannery to
compete with the jobbers and it
is pretty safe to predict that the
home grown products would
meet with a ready sale, especially
if tho finality wa.t equal or bet
ter, which it certainly would be.
Hut in order to accomplish this
there must be co-operation and
in order to have complete co
operation there must he a finan
cial interest of all concerned.
It is a feasib'e proposition too.
Ix't a company he organized and
the farmers take the majority of
the stock, the business men w ill
readilv take the balance and an
organization will be formed that
can and will defy the trust pro
clivities of the produce men and
jobbers. After a year or two of
successful operation, or even is
no great returns are received for
a year or tw o. a market w ill have
been established where the pro
ducts of the county can be sold
at a profit to the producer. Then
it will come to pass that many
hundreds of acres A'ill be cleared
and planted to fruit and berries
and a business will be established
that w ill be independent of the
jobbers and result in great de
velopment of the county to the
financial betterment of all con
cerned. In Columbia County there will
be two localities that will cele
brate the Fourth of July, t'lats
kanie and Yankton. All other
communities have passed it up.
Clatskanie is preparing for the
greatest celebration in its history
and no doubt many people from
all over the country will attend.
At Yankton the Kedmen have
taken charge and are making ex
tensive preparations. There will
be an old-fashioned picnic din
ner, with patriotic exercises and
sports Dr.d great quantities of
fire crackers. These two places,
Clatskanie ard Yanktr n, should
be the meeting place for almost
the entire population of the
county on that day. The people
from these other towns and lo
calities where there will be no
exercises should journey to one
or the other of these celebrations
and join in the occasion. F.very
thing possible is being done to
take care of the visitors and en
tertain them so that a day spent
at either place will be worth

"That's the sixth Studebaker we've
passed the only kind to invest in"
"The only kind because, at I always say. when
a man puts money in a thing he wants toknow that
he's going to get the worth of it out again."
"That's plain business as I look at it"
"That's why I say the price doesn't tell you any
thing at all. There's only one thing that talks except
the wagon itself. That's the name of the maker."
"When you buy a Studebaker you're buying a
vehicle that has behind it and in it sixty years of ex
periencesixty years of success and sixty years of
reputation for the square deal. That'a why a Stude
baker always looks good to me."
"My father used to aay that Studebaker honor wa aa sure
as a United States bank note. He was talking after having used
Studebaker vehicles aince ha waa a lad, and he told ma his lather
beiora him said, 'Be sale get Studebaker."
"Vehicle builders ean'l hold that sort of reputation now
day without delivering the goods. A Studebaker wagon has the
est in it That's why a man gets the ami out of it why it's
always an economy." . . - , .
