Charred After 3 Weeks' Pri
vate Study, of Methods.
Three week' investigation of th
working of th public market by C E.
Patterson, in which h declares he
found an enormous amount of abuse
and Illegal practice, was th causa of
hi launching the movement for a re
organization of the market at a meet
ing of the Retail Grocers' Association
"1 want to exonerate the retail gro
cers or any other organisation or class
of business men from the implication
of having Influenced me to begin thl
campaign, said Mr. Patterson yester
"My reason for taking it up was th
knowledge that th abuses exist and
the belief that they should be remedied
and no further Injustice done the es
tablished grocer and other merchants
of the city. I have founded my prln
ciples upon facts of discriminatory con
duct which is being perpetrated In th
market, and I want to state positively
at thla time that the commission men.
wholesale or retail grocers, landlords
or taxpayers had nothing to do with
calling th meeting at which the move
ment waa launched.
Reason far "Airing Orlevace" Given.
"Th reason I brought It before the
retail grocers Tuesday night was that
they ar directly affected by tha abuses
that are going on in tha public market.
while the other business concern are
affected Indirectly, and. consequently,
It wa natural that th grievance first
should ba aired at a place where It
might ba moat quickly considered.
"I am emphatically not striking at
the public market, as has been inti
mated in some of the newspapers of the
city. I am In favor of a public market
properly conducted and in a proper
"My Investigations were made on my
own Initiative, and my effort is simply
to bring about a purification of th
market and some measure whereby It
may be conducted in a legal manner In
the future and according to the pro
visions of the ordinance which cre
Prices Declared Vnebaaged.
"Th avowed Intent of the nubile
market was to reduce the high cost of
living. This it baa not done. The
price prevailing there are substan
tially the same as in th legitimate
grocery store of the city, with the ex
ception that, in the afternoon, when
closing out culls, articles are disposed
of at low prices, which is the natural
way to dispose of uch atock.
"Instead of being a market in which
th small producer can get In direct
touch with the consumer, the public
market ln.Portland haa become In effect
a commission house In which dealers
can sell produce to the public In com

"There is another man holding a
booth in the market and enjoying all
the free privileges of the market who.
Instead of being what could be termed
a bona fide producer, is buying and
shipping good from The Dalles. Hood
River and other places. Investigation
show that he is not the hired repre
sentative of any individual or market
association in those places, and his
buying and selling goods under this
plan i a plain violation of the rules
of the market under the ordinance
under which it was created.
Other Ofrraeea Are Alleged.
"A another example. It is reasonable
to view with some doubt the work of a
man who had ten acres of land, only
four of which are under cultivation,
and who Is keeping about 49 hens, and
yet ia selling great quantities of prod
ucts in the market- daily and who,

th market daily from three to four
casca of eggs."
Mr. Patterson asserts that he has
Innumerable other facta at hand of
similar clear violations of the ordi
nance under which the market ia oper
ating. Tb plan of his movement is to
organize representatives of all busi
nesses affected by this Illegitimate
dealing in the "Rlarket for a campaign
to bring about a reorganization of the
market which will assure its operation
on legitimate linea in future.
Mr. Patterson Is connected with the
Pearson - Ryan Company on Front
street, but declared last night that, in
case the fact of his connections with
that house seems likely to cast stigma
upon the commission rn,en or upon the
movement he is trying to launch, he
will probably sever those connections
and proceed with hi campaign Just
A general meeting will be called as
soon aa the committee which the retail
grocer voted for n ednesday ha been
organized and haa mad definite plans
of procedure in its campaign.
