KUTAllLISHINU A PRINCIPAL
In hla roiiuost to 1'rualdont Hard
ing that bo veto tho bill through
which Homor 13. Konn, Frod W.
Qoodlug and J. E. Clinton plannod
to socuro tho distribution of 200,
000 acros of rango land In South
ern Idaho, Clovornor Davis of our
sister stato has establlshod a most
valuablo and .Important procodeut.
In principal tho policy of consoli
dating tho national forest for tho
purposo of raforostatlon und for
bettor control of flro and other haz
xard Is corroct; but It was tho
mothod of' distribution which con
domued tho Foim-Ooodlng-Clliiton
plan.
This Is not a matter of Im
portance to Idaho nlonu. It Is
equally Importaut to avory public
domain stato, Oregon In particular
Is Interested for wo undoratand that
n bill of similar Import has bcon
Introduced lu Congrosa already for
tho distribution and exchango of
lands lu prlvato ownorshlp for lands
lu tho public domain In this stato.
If ouo Just stops to think of tho
possibilities of such a bill when
takoii'Iu connection with tho vast
ucroago controlled by big land
ownora already It la almost staggor
lug. By Judlcloua soloctlona of land
with wutor holes It would not bo
hard for no mo big outfit to socuro
a monopoly on tho public rango
nnd run practically ovory smalt
Btockman out of business.
It by his action Clovornor Davis
has sot In motion forcos which will
establish tho principle- of having tho
publto Intorcst consdorod In such
deals a dobt of gratltudo la duo him,
not from hla own stato nlono but by
nil tho rosldonts of'lho public land
ntatCB of tho west.
tho Portland papers will have to
admit that,!! $179 por aero can ho
spent ndvantagcously for Irrigation
thon projects which cost less havo
oven greater morlt. If any ovont
It la worthy of nolo that tho Idea of
Bottling tho "back country" Is gain
ing circulation In Portland,
Not to bo outdone by tho Journal,
tho Orcgonlan aUo of Sunday had
a full pago wrlto up of Pine Valloy
In Dakor county. That Is gottlng
down this way In Eastorn Orogon.
Also It would bo well to obsorvo that
nt tho recent mooting of tho Dakor
County Chambor of Commorco all
of tho Portland dailies wora ropro
sontod with their foremost wrltors.
Special omplmsla might bo placed
on tho fact that Edgar B. Piper,
managing editor of tho Orcgonlan
for tho first tlino In many years of
sorvlco with tho Orcgonlan, vlsltod
Halter county. Somo day, It la pos
Blblo that ho may bo Induced to

his Initial visit to South Eastorn
Oregon tho Orcgonlan odltor deliver

PENALIZED FOR OTHERS
Aftor listening to tho stntomont
by Jcsso llawloy nt tho Idaho Power
hoarlnga, horo last weok to tho offoct
thnt 03 por cont of tho dollnquonclos
In payment for service nro from Ir
rigation companies, power usors on
tho Oregon sldo nro wondering what
proportion ot total Is that of tho
Gom district.
Mr. llawloy said that thoro Is duo
tho company n total of f020,000.
Ouly n fow thousand Is duo from
Orogon powor users, and arrango
monta oro being mado to pay Uioso
dollnquonclos boforo powor la turn
ed on In 'April.
It Is tho understanding ot many
power uiors horo that tho Oom Dis
trict la tho biggest dobtor to tho
company and that n largo portion
of tho total dollnquoncy la to bo
found lu lta account. It this 1b truo
uvoryono regrotB It; no ouo sympa
thizes with tho pooplo In tho Qom
district inoro than thoso who llvo
undor pumping systems In thlo sec
tion. Yot It la hard, undor tho
difficulties which local users aro ox-
porlonclug, to accopt tho situation In
which tho aom dollnquoncy 1b plac
ing tho balanco ot tho country.
Tho question tho local powor
usors aro asking Is: "Aro wo to be
ponaltzod for tho falluro ot tho Oom
District to pay Its blllsT" That In
how tho proposition appeals to local
rauchors, and' It must bo grantad
thnt thoro Is apparent Justice for
tholr vlow point.
Evor sluco It was built tho Oom
district hue been In difficulties. In
tho diadem ot Irrlgaton projocts
which aro spreading their lustro
through tho Snuk Illvor vulloy, It
may bo n sparkling gom from tho
viewpoint of soil fertility, but It Is
a brilliant falluro financially. It
Is not tho pooplo of tho districts'
fault, now. Tho trouble Is that It
Is an attempt to do tho Impossible,
undor tho conditions found thoro.
Tho namo la a mlsuomor.
Tho only posstblo relief tor tho
peoplo of tho Oom district nnd ot
all tho pumping systems which havo
a lift ot over fifty foot Is to socuro
tho construction ot tho Owyhee pro"
Joct. It tho possibility of cutting
off ot powor will hasten that day
whon tho Owyhee stall bo built, thon
tho Iduho Powor company will havo
dono tho country a real sorvlco In
Its warning.
Portland might ponder on the
fact that settlors on Irrlgatod lands
aro not like ship owers, thoy ask
for no subsidy.

In discussing tho lottuco contract
Mr. Lattlg aaya:
Tfioro bolng ccnsldornblo discus
sion about tho now homo markotlng
association organlzod and Incorpor
ated at Caldwell undor tho numo ot
Idaho Producors Union for tho pur
poso of growing and marketing lot
tuco and other farm products and
having boon appolntod by tho Farm
lluroau of Malheur county chairman
ot tho Lottuco growing campaign I
doslro to stato my vlowa In rogard
to tho matter.
At a mass mooting ot growers In
Caldwell a commlttoo was appolntod
to porfoct tho growers organization
and to Investigate und roport back
to tho mombora tho best method ot
soiling tho products ol tho associ
ation. This commlttoo was composed of
plckod men, many ot whom having
had oxporlonco in growing and mar
keting lottuco, and wo must bollovo
that tholr soloctlon whoro thoy
woro so woll known was a wise ono
and fully representative
In organizing this Union tho com
mlttoo had constantly In mlud all ot
tho foaturots ot cooperative market
ing aa laid down by tho American
Farm Uuroau Fodoratlon, bollovlng
that only through thoso principals
they could bo successful.
Thoy hold that tho soiling, agency
who proposed to markot tholr pro
ducts should havo tho following re
quirements: F'nt, that thoy should bo fully
flnancod. Socond, that tholr busi
ness should bo ot largo volume.
Third, that thoy should bo fully
equipped and oxerloncod In this
class of soiling nnd havo largo ox
cIubIvo Belling connections.
Hearing In mind thoso conditions
tho largo markotlng concerns ot the
northwest woro invited to appear
and frankly submit tbolr selling propositions.
Each of tho selling organizations
that appeared and presented their
soiling plans had oqual chanco and
aftor fully and carefully Investigat
ing tho dltferont plana and agencies
It was doclded to contract for three
years with tho California Vegetable
Union ot Los Angeles as bolng the
agency best fitted to handle our
products, but had the privilege ot
cancelling out at end ot any one
year. w
Tho growers marketing agreemont
that wo are askod to sign to become
a member of. thbj union Is neither
harsh nor unusual in its provisions.
It la to bind tho grower to deliver
his head lettuce to the Union tor a
period ot threo years, and without
such an agreement no cooperative
union could possibly do any busi
ness.
This agency has had 20 years ot
successful experience In marketing
farm producta in U. S. and Canada,
and la highly recommended by large
banka in California aa being mor
ally and financially roponslble and
also by largo cooperative markotlng
concerus whoso producta they have
been handling.
Thoy are not buyers but soil only
on commission based on tho selling
price at shipping) point, not on the
price at destination.
They propose to furnish without
cost an oxperlencod field man to
advise, with the growers throughout
tho entire season and to furnish
reports
Tho Union growers will havo
their own packing houso In ovory
community whoro thoro Is sufficient
acreage, and now machinery will bo
on tho markot for planting, corrugat
lng nnd cultivating tho crop, so that
tho most of tho work may bo por
formod by horses.
Tho Idaho Producers Union Is a
homo community organization and
should bo supported by us in Mal
eour county as wo aro invitod to
Join and oporato with thorn on oqual
terms.
Tho growors will at a meeting
called for that purposo oloct ot their
mombora nlno directors who will cdn
duct nil of tho business of tho Union
In nccordanco with tho Dy-laws of
the Union.
In ordor to) sccuro first class Cali
fornia lottcco seed It will bo neces
sary for tho growors to. sign up con
tracts at onco with tho Idaho Pro
ducors Union.
It appears to tho wrltor that tho
posslbllltloB ot vqgotablo growing as
a business In tills torrltory has boon
overlooked and tho coming year may
provo that this Industry, proporly
conductod, will bo tho ono thing to
bring prosperity to us all.
