w)iut tho situation would bo
Ass tfi wsatilt nf niiv fwtn n (vn lrt
fow of our ranchors sold and wo nroi
all In a position now to profit by
tho. fact that wo did hold togother.
Ovor in Idaho tho speculators bavo
control of tho stock now and many
of tho ranchers reallzod only $1.00
to $1.25 por hundrod.
"So far only sevon carloads hnvo
been sold from this section at from
$1.00 to $1.10. ,
"There aro 114 ranchors with fairly-largo
fields of potatoes In tho
county, Of thoso 4G bolong to the
association. If the ranchers will con
tinue their co-operative effort, I am
sure that noxt year the potato busi
ness in this soctlon will bo moro
Muballzed. Wo have throe things
to do howover.
First; 11 uy good seed. Wo haya
lost $50,000 this yoar on poor sood,
If not mora than that.
Secend: Out a compotc-nt com-
mlttoo to handle tho purchasing of
' tho seed and the sale of tho crop,
Third: Get proparod so that wo
can put our crop on thp market
early in August.
Mr. Gibson has worked njght and
day during tho past two weeks to
organize tho effort and keep the
ranchers Informed as tb tho current
quotations. And whllo many of the
ranchors havo benefited by this ef
fort and still romalnod out ot the
asslclatton, the work is to continue.
An examplo of the loss which
some of tho ranchets have suffered
through lack of Information is given
In the fact that one or two carloads
woro sold to commission men at
$1.25 when the association was be
ing offered $1.50.
Whllo .there aro only about 800
acres In potatoos this yoar It is bo-
uoveu mat next year wis acreage
will be Increased ten fold.
Freight Hate Reduced
Another factor In tho potato sit
uation was tho filing ot the order
of tho Interstate Commerce com
mission grant(ng the request of
Union Paciflo for permission to re
duce its rat 08 by 8 cents per hun
dred, This information1 came from
Congressman Nick Slnnott with
whom the matter was taken up by
. local bodies. Tho actual starting
- of the formal effort came from tho
railroad officials to whom applica
tion for reduction was made direct
by thn Commercial club as well as
'many individuals. The reduction
will be effective next Monday aid
will vary from 4 to 10 cents per
hundred for the territory eevered.

Just this side of Bend they passed

tho boy started firing tho gun, and
ot course tho cur stopped, When
ho reached tho car tho boy demand

demand was grantod. After a while
the tourists stopped and told tho
boy thoy could not take blm across

and threatened them but Mr. Put
hamus seized tho gun and wrested
It from tho young fellow and
emptied the charabors. Then they
found that it had boon loaded with
blank cartridges. Whou thoy left
the boy at a ranch houso he was
