FOREST GROVE. Or.. Sept. 24. (Spe
cial.) That there are colossal frauds In
the Postal Department, and that the big
annual deficit the department has to face
Is due in large part; to the overcharges
of the railroads for carrying mails. Is
declared by the Oregon State Grange to
he the reason bo many obstacles are
placed in the way of the movement for
better pay for rural mall delivery and the
introduction of the parcels post.
The Oregon- Grange makes the state
ment that the railroads charge the Postal
Department 800 per cent more than they
do for similar services elsewhere'. It Is
the purpose of the state organization to
cut down the monumental graft that at
taches to the mall service.
Resolution Adopted at Albany.
At the late session at Albany a resolu
tion voicing the need of postal reform and
suggesting means to carry It out was
adopted and copies will be sent to every
Grange In the United States, with the
purpose of getting It before the National
Grange when It meets at Denver in
November. The resolution was as fel
lows: Whereas. The citizens of th United State
have come to regard the postal service as one'
of the most important branches of the Govern
ment; Whereas, It Is the ambition of all true citi
zen, to see this service advanced to a more
perfect system not excelled by that of any
Whereas, The deficit of the Postal Depart
ment for the year ending June 30, 1908.
amounted to practically 415.000.000. thereby
creating a condition that will retard advance'
ment and improvement in our postal service.
Whereas, We believe this enormoua deficit
la cauaed, in a great measure, by the payment
of exorbitant prices to the railroads for the
carrying of mails; by the payment of ex
travagant prices for the use of stamping ma
chines, time-recording clocks and many other
supplies utsed in every branch of the postal
service; and by the - flagrant abuse of the
Resolved, That the National Grange be re
quested to select a committee of three mem
bers of the order, giving them full power to
employ all necessary assistance, such as law
yers, stenographers and expert accountants;
said committee to proceed to Washington, D.
C. and make a thorough Investigation of pub
lic records and all other sources of reliable In
formation In all branches of the Postal De
partment and if, In their Judgment, any un
necessary financial drains are discovered, the
National Grange shall at once-convey the facts
to the President of the United Btatem and to
the National Congress anr demand an Investi
gation. Letters Sent to All Granges.
State Master A. T. Buxton, pf this
city, who will represent the state at
the next meeting of the National
Grange, to be held in Denver in No
vember, Is preparing to press this mat
ter to an Issue on that occasion and in
order to arouse the Granges of the land
he has prepared a letter which, accom
panied by the above resolution. Is be
ing sent to every Grange in the United
States, asking It to instruct its repre
sentatives at the National Grange to
take action in the matter. The letter
points out the ways in which the pos
tal funds are wasted, and is as fol
lows: The Inclosed resolution was adopted at the
last session of the Oregon State Grange, and
the National Grange will be asked to take
' action upon it at the coming session In Den
ver. You are doubtless more or less familiar
with the conditions existing In our National
Postofflce Department an annual deficit reach
ing now well Into the millions of dollars, and
growing larger every year. So" long as we
are confronted with thla condition the effort
for more efficient postal service make little
With such a growing deficit each year, even
If there were no other factors to contend with,
it would be a difficult matter to persuade Con
gress to undertake the establishment of postal
savins banks or parcels post delivery, such
aa is now enjoyed by the citizens of Mexico
and nearly all European countries. Further
more. It would retard the perfection and ex
tension of the rural delivery system. At the
present time, many postal employes, such as
city and rural carriers, and many postofflce
clerks are not paid a fair compensation for
the class of service they perform. In some
instances under the conditions with which they
have to contend, rural carriers find they can
not afford to carry the mail for. the wages
paid by the Government, and It becomes nec
essary tor the patrons to raise $200 or 300
annually by private subscriptions) in order to
maintain the route; but with an annual deficit
of f 15.000,000 It seems impossible to, expect
Behind Other Great Nations.
Ours Is the only great Nation where such
a condition exists, and the patrons of Oregon
are convinced that this state of affairs la due
-largely to the facts set forth In the preamble
to thla resolution: "By payment of exhorbl
tant prices to the railroads for carrying tha
malls; by the payment of extravagant prices
for the uss of stamping machines, time-recording
clocks and many other supplies used In
every branch of the postal service and by the
flagrant abuse of the franking privilege."
In the support of this belief we ask your
consideration of the following facts: For car
rying the mall for a distance of 90 miles, be
tween two points In Oregon, one mail each
way, six days In the wk, the Government
pay a certain railroad $6000 per annum. In
addition to this It pays the company rent on
three cars that are used on the run at a rate
that would build each of the three cars new
every year. Furthermore, only two of the
cars are seen in service at one time, the
other being kept in reserve to be used in
case of accident to the other two. The rent
Is paid on all three at the same rate, and only
one-hair of each car Is used for mall pur
poses, the other half being used by the Wells
Kargo Express Company, and It cannot be
learned whether they pay any rent or not.
Graft on Machines and Clocks.
In the general Postofflce of every large city
of our land there are in use various forms of
stamping machines and one or more time-re-cordins
clocks, which record the time "of
going on and coming off duty of all the em
ployes of the office. Many commercial estab
lishments have similar clocks, which they, buy
from the manufacturers at prices ranging pos
sibly from $100 to $200. But by some strange
regulation the Government la never allowed to
buy these clocks, but, as In the case of the
mallcars. pays an annual rental amounting to
more than the price of the clock. Third As
sistant Postmaster General Edwin C. Madden
told the Housa Postofflce committee, February
7. 1906. that various executive departments
of the Government were In the habit of send
ing steel safes, billiard tables, desks, book
cases, chairs and lounges free through the
malls, and It happened that much of these
heavy shipments were made during the period
when tha malls are being weighed to determine
the basis of compensation for railroads. Mr.
Warden said that In 1860 this Go rernment tree
matter, exclusive of bags and wrappings,, con
stituted 12.S8 per cent of the entltre weight
Gifts to Favorite Railroads.
Nobody knows how many cases there may
be like that of a certain Congressman who
franked so many documents to swell the mail
carried by a favorite railroad at the time of
the weighing on which Its pay for four years
was to be based that it was necessary to rent
a barn In which to store them. ' This sort of
thing, Mr. Madden thinks. Is largely respon
sible for the postal deficit, and Postmaster
General Cortelyou estimated that in 19o4 the
Government lost. In round numbers, $20,000,000
by this free -matter.
In addition, to these actual frauds that are
practiced, as It has been stated on excellent
authority, that the railroads charge the. GovT
ernment about 800 per cent' more than they
do the express companies for similar services.
Now, someone is responsible for these abuses
and there ought to be some way to stop them.
The patrons of Oregon have felt that the
greatest amount of good could be accomplished
toward securing results in the matter If ' the
National Grange would take It up and make
an Independent investigation.
To Stamp Out Corruption.
We do not desire- to create a stir in this
matter. Like all patrons of husbandry, we
simply desire to stamp out corruption wherever
It may be found to exist and clear the way
for the attainment of some of the reforms In
the postal service for which the order of Pat
rons of Husbandry has long been contending.
We believe that it would be useless to ask for
a public Investigation now, for the" reason
that It la frequently made too much to the
Interest of those who may be charged with

BRIDGE OVER THE COWUTZ DESTROYED BY FIRE.
CASTLE) ROCK, Wash., Sept. 24. (Special.) The high suspension bridge at this place, which burned last Thursday night,
was constructed of wood and wire, painted white, and was a very substantial structure. Being so high, it could be seen at,
a considerable distance In all directions and was greatly admired by all for its graceful lines and exceedingly airy and
clean appearance. The fire Is supposed to have been of Incendiary origin.
The bridge was constructed in the years 1804-05 by -Dr. D. M.-Eddy and associates and cost between $11,000 and $12,000.
The loss of the bridge falls not only on the owners. ut upon this) whole community,, as It was a great convenience to all.
particularly In Winter time, when It Is difficult to reach, the ferry during high- water, and also to operate, the boat. -There-Is
considerable talk here of this city and the County Court building a free bridge.
such tasks to hush matters up and cover it
all with a shining coat of whitewash. But
we believe that if the ll;ht methods be em
ployed that such a committee as this resolu
tion proposes, backed by the National Grange,
it can collect such an array, tft facta as to
force an uncovering and .correction of the
whole matter. We cite the fact that the in
vestigation of a single Individual and his fear
less exposure of the conditions he found sur
rounding the meatpacking business led to an
Investigation which resulted In some of the
Important legislation that has been enacted
in recent years.
We contend that this Is a matter of not less
Importance, by which the Government Is being
defrauded of millions, of dollars annually and
tha people are being deprived of much-needed
Improvement In the postal service. We believe
the National Grange Is In a better position to
undertake this task than any other Institution
or organization In the country. We believe
that ltd funds, even to the extent of several
thousand, dollars, could not be used to any
better purpose or one that will bring more
benefit to a like number of people or one that
will result In more ultimate good to the
Grange as an organization. .

FRUIT MUCH DAMAGED
Campaign 'of Education Carried on
by Institute Staff From Oregon
Agricultural College Opens the
Eyes of the Orchardists.
GRANT'S PASS. Or.. Sept. 24. (Special.)
The Grant's Pass Fruitgrowers' Union
which was organized early this Fall, with
R. A. N. Reymers president, R. M. Rob.
lnson vice-president, Charles Meserve sec
retary, L. L. Jewell treasurer, has be
gun a campaign to exterminate the pests
- ; r
mi afn-Mflnr fffiiiiBfanftfrn -jrrff
that threaten to ruin-the fruit Industry
In Josephine County.' So great has been
damage to fruit this season that fully
75 pef cent, of the fruit la affected
more or less with San Jose scale or cod
lin moth, and the loss to the farmers will
reach fully $30,000 at 60 cents a box.
The farmers and business men, as a
result of the six fruitgrowers' meetings
recently held In this county by Dr..
Withycombe and Institute staff of the
State Agricultural College, have come to
realize the loss that the pests are caus
ing and the value that the fruit industry
would be if carried on as It i& at Hood
River and other sections. Josephine
County Is in the center of Rogue Rtver
Valley, famous for producing the finest
apples, pears, peaches? and grapes, but
owing to gold mining having been the
leading industry for 60 years, fruitralsing
has not been given the prominence that it
has been in the adjoining section of the
valley embraced in Jackson County.
Now the orchards are to receive quite
as much attention as the mines. At a
meeting of the Fruitgrowers' Union, Sat
urday, It was decided to have a county
fruit Inspector appointed by the County
Court, and. Charles Meserve was recom
mended for the position. County -Judge
Stephen Jewell was present at the meetl
4ng and promised the heartiest co-operation
of the County Court In enforcing the
state law against such tree owners as
would not free their trees of pests or cut
them down. Hon. A. H. Carson, member
of the State Board of Horticulture for
this district, Is assisting the union in the
war on the pests and It is the purpose to
have as perfect a lot of fruit another
year to ship from Josephine County as
was ever put on the market.
To encourage the farmers to spray their
trees and to make the expense as light
on them as possible, the union will buy
the spray materials by the carload and let
the orchardists have It at cost. As but few
of' the farmers here fully understand the
art of spraying, the union has secured a
large number of copies of the bulletins
prepared by Professor A. B. Cordley, of
the State Agricultural College Experiment
station, that treats of pests and sprays,
for distribution. Bach orchardist (s also
being supplied with a copy of the annual
report of the State Board of Horticulture,
which is by iar the best text book ever
gotten out for Oregon fruitralsers.--
Such of the fruit as Is not damaged by
the pestsa of very fine quality and the
yield is good. The Fruitgrowers' Union
made shipment of pears to New York that
were highly complimented and which sold
for the highest price ever realized on
pears sent from this county. The union
Is preparing to send several cars of fancy
Spitzenberg and Newtown apples to East,
ern markets. So great is the demand in
Portland and other Northern cities for
Rogue River peaches and grapes that
none are shipped to Eastern markets.
The acreage to graphs Is being, largely
Increased and large shipments to distant
markets will be made within a few years.
The acreage to apples, pears and peaches
is also being very largely Increased.'

The Democrats will probably nomi
nate a complete state ticket this Fill,
although that Is still undecided. The
Pierce County delegation will go to
Seattle tomorrow, preparatory to the
convention, which is to be held there
Wednesday. Democrats- from all sec
tions of the state will reach Seattle to
morrow and the ante-convention meet
ing promises to be equally as important
as the convention itself.
Two candidates for Supreme Judge
and one for Congress are pretty sura
to be chosen. Jere Neterer, of Belling
ham, and S. E. Elliott, of Chehalis, are
the nominees already considered for
the Supreme Bench. Either C. S. Voor
hees or W. C. Jones, both' of Spokane,
will be named for Congress, w. H
Dunphy, of Walla Walla, has been
talked or for Judge. He was In Tacoma
yesterday, and said that he would not
accept a nomination. x
The platform will" indorse' Bryan,
though not without a fight; it will con

administration, and it will oppose that
plank of the Republican platform that
approves the Alaska-Yukon Exposition.
PICKERS OF PRUNES ARE FEW

CORVALLIS. Or., Sept. 24 (Special.)
Troubles are falling thick and fast on
prune men in this vicinity. The hoppick
ing has extended to a considerably later
date than la usual, and there Is a dearth
of pickers for the prune orchards. All
last week the orchards were picking with
less than half a force in every Instance,
and In some with but a small percentage
of the pickers that were deBlred.
The rains have since come on, and from
them a two-fold injury results, the burst
ing of the prunes and the unwillingness
of pickers to work. In the big prune or
chard north of town, where 5000 bushels
should have been picked last week, only
2000 bushels were taken from the trees.

college students were secured for the day

the Tains will let up. In which event help
can be secured, as hoppicking in the
yards here will be ended by Wednesday.

largest figure that was ever paid there

Faculty Backs Up Placard, and
Pipes Are Emptied and

SEATTLE, Sept. 24. (Special.) Col
legians who are addicted to the use
of tobacco In any form, whether they
smoke well-rounded bit cigars, a little
curved-stem pipe or the aromatic cigar,
ette, will have to indulge In their pleas
ure in the woods' or off the campus
entirely, as a faculty ruling has been
passed prohibiting smoking near the
buildings of the University of Wash
ington. When the students came back to
register for the Fall term this morn
ing their attention was arrested by a
placard waving in the wind above the
steps of the administration building
announcing that hereafter no smoking
would be permitted near any of the
college buildings. Notwithstanding
this decree, hundreds f young men
went Into the building anyway and
registered, with an equal or greater
number of young women, the entire
registration amounting to BOO for the
day. Last year It was only 330 foi
the corresponding period.
Heretofore there was no order
against smoking anywhere on the
campus and the result was that often
after lunch the-eteps of the main build
ing were crowded with collegians
whose heads were surrounded by a halo
of smoke, emitted from -mouths hold
ing the typical college pipe or cigarette.
The habit of smoking near the build
ings was carried so far that the fac
ulty determined to take action in the
matter, with the result that today ci
gars were thrown away and smoking
pip bowls emptied as soon as the stu
dents noticed the conspicuous sign
suspended-from the porch.
Great Demand for Teachers.
CENTRALIA. Wash., Sept. 24. (Spe

ports a scarcity of teachers in this
county. There are about 20 vacancies to
be filled and his office is being besieged
by directors from all over the county to
nil the vacancies. He has tried to secure
teachers from Portland but has only been
successful in securing one. The scarcity
in part is caused by the large number
that failed at the last examination.

MANY BOGUS BILLS PASSED
Japanese and Greek Section Hands
"' at Pocatello Are Victimized, '.
POCATELLO, Idaho, Sept. 24. (Special.)
Edward K. Howard, Albert Roach and
Thomas Cole were arrested at McCam
mon, in this county, today, charged with
passing bogus $5 bills Issued by the no
torious Merchants & Planters Bank of
Savannah, Ga. The country is being
flooded with the worthless paper, igno
rant Japanese and Greek section hands
on the Short Line being the principal vic
tims, although two Pocatello business men
were victimized last week.
The leader of the gang working at
McCammon escaped capture, and with
him disappeared the much-wanted stock
of bogus blllB. Because the greenbacks
are neither counterfeit nor rorged, the
law can reach the men who passed them
only through prosecution for obtaining
money under false pretenses.
