Federal Officials Themselves

Much Discrimination Charged and
This Appears Inevitable; Satis
factory Results Unlikely.

made a very favorable Impression on
the members of the Oregon delegation.
and the impression is getting steadily
morse since Government officials them
aelves have begun flndtng fdult with
the result attained.
Dissatisfaction first arose among
the grain farmers, against whom there
was discrimination, for the Government
established a price for wheat far below
market value, but left cotton un
touched, even when cotton growers
were getting fabulous prices and the
Government was. in proportion, about
as large a buyer of cotton as of wheat.
Cotton, of course, is exclusively a prod
uct of that part of the country which
is solidly aligned with the party in
But the dissatisfaction did not rest
with the farmers alone, nor was it
confined to grain farmers. In fact,
the grain farmers, it appears, would
have approved without protest a price
fixed by a body upon which they had
fair representation, provided the price
fixing policy had been extended to
products they buy as well as to those
they sell.
Millers' Market Curtailed.
The grain growers of the Pacific
Northwest were fairly well satisfied,
for in the fixing of basic prices and
freight rates they secured a small ad
vantage. But this advantage soon
!worked to the disadvantage of the mili
ars, who. paying a relatively higher
price than was paid in sections of
country with which they competed
the selling of flour, found their market
It was in connection with this phase
of the wheat and flour market that the
Government first saw the error of its
own price-fixing policies. Members of
the Senate and House, from both Ore
gon and Washington, laid before the
"ood Administration the complaints of
'orth Pacific millers, and replies to
these complaints were made from time
to time by the Grain Corporation,
wnicn Is a branch of the Food Admin
l.-tration. The latest, and one that
hows some Impatience, is addressed
to Congressman Nicholas J. Sinnott,
who had submitted the complaint of a
large milling concern in his great
grain-growing district.
Grata Administrator Tired.
"It really is hard to answer all the
letters trom these millers." says the
grain administrator, who intimates
that agreement upon "certain formulae'
night simplify the problem "instead of
continuing the correspondence." He
"Last year, tinder controlled distri
bution and operation of mills, the Pa
cific Coast ground 110 per cent of its
former three-year average, while the
rest of the country ground only 90 per
cent, and the flour production this
Sear, as to North Pacific mills, is run
ning even heavier than last year, so
mat miureea is being produced In the
North Pacific section at a rate higher
than ever before.
"Last year a limited supply, with the
utilization of every bushel of It. was
not sufficient to run the mills of the
whole country, even to their three
year average. We were able to take
every pound of flour produced by these
mills, whether hard or soft, that the
domestic market did not absorb. This
year the amount of flour we can deliver
our allies abroad is limited not only by
the shipping in sight, but also by port
facilities here and abroad, where labor
conditions have become steadily worse,
and also by the demonstrated need of
ur allies for some dairy feed, them
selves, for they have dairy herds also
htch must be considered. The mills
f the rest of the country also have a
right to be considered in the export
flour business, and we have tried to be
fair to these mills and to the Pacific
Action Declared Justified.
Those four propositions are all that
the grain administrator assumes the
millers will agree upon. He asserts
that the Food Administration has
bought more heavily than last year of
North Pacific flour for export: that
although there is some basis for the
complaint that the Food Administration
pays a uniform price for flour made
from hard and from soft wheat, yet
the Food Administration is Justified by
the fact that some countries prefer
the flour made from soft wheat, which
Americans consider inferior, and that
part of the apparent scarcity of dairy
feed is due to the desire to buy mill
feed, which is the cheapest, whereas
there Is an abundance of harloy in Cali
fornia. Montana and the Dakotas.
It is in this last reference to prices
that the grain administrator once more
shows the failure of the policy of price
fixing. Not only did the price-fixers
curtail the normal market of the North
Pacific millers, but by establishing an
artificial price for millfeed they cre
ated an abnormal demand, which cur
tailed the market for barley. Dairy
men paid feed prices not counter-balanced
by increased prices for their
products. '
While not condemning price-fixing as
a failure, the -grain administration is
furthering the conviction that this new
Governmental function will be so fre
quently influenced by sectiona! inter
ests and that satisfactory results can
not De expected.

TACOMA. Wash.. Oct. 27. (Special.)
Hereafter every ship of the Admiral
line will carry the name of Tacoma as
its place of registry and home port.
That announcement waa made by 11. K.
Alexander, president of the Pacific
Meamship Company, as a tribute to his
home city. Heretofore the vessels of
the Pacific-Alaska Navigation Com
pany, the original Admiral Line, were
registered from Portland. Me., where
the concern was first formed. Others

owned and under charter, will be trans
ferred to this port. The first Vessels
to have Tacoma inscribed on them are
the Admiral Mayo, which said for the
Far East today; Admiral Sthley. Ad
miral Kvans and Admiral Watson.
Mr. Alexander announced the charter
today of the barks George Curtis, now
discharging salmon at Tacoma. and the
Oriental at Seattle: the full power

Bonds to Amount of S3000 to Be Is
sued for Harbor Improvement.
ST. HELENS. Or.. Oct. 27. (Special.)
The city of St. Helens will build a
municipal dock. At the last city elec
tion, the Question was voted on and re
ceived a majority vote. Bonds to the
amount of J5900 will be issued to pro
vide for the building of the dock, and
the council has advertised for bids for
a SOxTO dock, with a 200-foot roadway.
The dock is to be built at the foot of
sit. Helens street which is about the
center of the city.
It is not expected that any difficulty
will be encountered in securing a per
mit from the War Industries Board .as
the dock will provide a landing place
for 600 shipyard workers. The docks
now used are private property and if
the owners saw fit. the public could be
barred from their use.
Launching Quiet These Days to
Minimize Spread of Influenza.
Precautions against Spanish influ
enza are responsible for a greater re
strlction against the issuance of passes
to shipyards. At two launcnings Sat
urday there was a ban against passes
to outsiders and not even the bands
played as usual.
Noontime meetings of all kinds have
been done away with at the plants,
even though they have been held in the
open. Cases of sickness reported in
shipyards are said to be more frequent
among men in shops and not with those
engaged in actual assembling of ma
terial on hulls in the open. Managers
of yards feel that the situation is be
ing taken care of as well as possible,
considering that hundreds of men must
be more or less in cmpany at times
during the day.

Robert Grass, Seattle; Fred
Adams, Spokane, in Race.
Opposition to Grass in King County
Delegation Slay Be Due to His)
Sympathy With "Cow" Counties.
SEATTLE. Oct. 27. (Special.)
Though there is a week to go before
members of the next Legislature will
be actually elected, the fight for
Speaker of the next House Is. so well
under way that It appears probable the
contest will narrow down to a fight be
tween Robert Grass, of Seattle, and
Fred Adams of Spokane.
In the speakership gossip the names
of E. H. Guie and Pliny L. Allen, of
Seattle, George McCoy of Vancouver
and one or two others have been men
tloned. - But Grass has a good work
ing majority of the King County dele
gation and most of the West Side
pledges that have been given are
made out in Grass's favor. Odds are
that at least one of his King County
rivals, if not both, will be out of the
fight after election.
In eastern Washington, Adams de
feated L. L. Westfall for control of the
Spokane delegation by a single vote and
the campaign in Adams's behalf has
been made in favor of an East Side
candidate, the preliminary effort being
to line up Eastern Washington by that
appeal. Adams has all the better of it
on the East Side, but he has not yet
obtained the solid support of that sec
tion. Even if he should, he could only
muster 36 or 87 votes, as one figures
it, and there are 97 members of the
House, requiring 49 to control.
Pierce County Badly Spilt.
Two years ago virtually all the King
County House members supported Guy
Kelly, of Tacoma, for Speaker. There
is little likelihood that Pierce County
will reciprocate next January for
Pierce is split this time worse than
King County ever was. Kelly will not
go back to the House and even if he
did it is probable he would fall down in
any effort to control his delegation.
Both Grass and Adams have some
Pierce county support, though an
earlier effort was made to line-up
some of it for Guie. If the fight gets
down to a contest between Adams and
Grass it is probable the Guie votes
would be thrown to the Spokane man.
Whether an even break in Pierce could
be arranged is a matter of pure specu
lation for nobody actually knows.
Kelly began In the speakership fight
by keeping his hands jff, but recently
there have been indications that he is
supporting Adams.
Sims Supports Grass.
E. A. Sims, former Republican floor
leader In the House, is actively sup
porting Grass's speakership fight.
Though he frequently has declared he
would retire from politics and even
now is handling a big copper mine
near Index, Sims has kept in remark
ably close touch with state affairs
and correspondence with legislative
nominees shows that his influence in
Grass's behalf has been carrying
great deal of weight.
Grass has been a member of the
House during the past three sessions,
while Adams has only one session to
his credit. Both were members of the
rules committee two years ago. Grass
has profited in Western Washington by
his sympathy as a legislator with the
so-called "cow counties" and it may
be that some of the opposition he en
countered in the King County delega
tion was due to this attitude.
Chief Clerk Maybury to Return,
Charles R. Maybury, chief clerk of
the House since 1913, has finally ob
tained leave of absence from the Norway-Pacific
Drydock and Construc
tion Company with which he now is
associated, and probably will be elected
chief clerk again as no opposition to
him' has appeared. He is trying to In
duce A. W. ("alder, of Vancouver, for
mer assistant chief clerk, to drvp his
ship yard work for a couple of months
and return to legislative duties. Calder
is balking, but strong efforts will be
made to induce him to go to Olympia
for the session.
Frank Dallam. Jr., former secretary
of the Senate, now is with the Ameri
can Army In France and there is a
lively fight on for secretary. More ac-
tual pledges of support have beer,
given Victor Zednick, former represen
tative, than for "any of the other can
didates for secretary, but the fight is
not yet settled. The most serious rival
Zednick has is O. L. Stone, of Olympia.

agreed to go to France soon in Y. M. C.

Coos Bay Lender Points to Record
of Republican Parly.
Banker. Marshfield.
MARSHFIKLD, Or.. Oct. 2. (Spe
cial.) I was shocked on reading the
almost unbelievable statement of Presi
dent Wilson advisjng votes for Demo
cratic aspirants to office. Records dis
close support of Republicans on all Ad
ministration war measures were more
ready than from members of his own
party. This adherence to party politics
when "politics is adjourned" is discon
certing, to say the least.
The direct, eloquent and convincing
manner in which tne resicent an
swered the Kaiser's government ask
ing for an armistice is a source of pride
and satisfaction to all loyal Americans.
That this universal confidence should
be so shaken by the President descend
ing to partisan politics in so short 31
space of time is regrettable.
Substantial Majority Expected for
Ticket in Columbia County.
ST. HELENS, Or., Oct. 7. (Special.)
Indications are that the entire Re
publican county and state ticket will
receive a substantial majority in Co
lumbia County, with the possible ex
ception of tho county judgeship. For
this ofTice there are three aspirants,
Martin White. Republican; W. J. Ful
lerton. Democrat, and George Conyers,
who is running as an independent.
Mr. Conyers is also a Republican and
lives in Clatskanie. It is probable the
vote will be so badly eplit that Fuller
ton will slip in. At any rate, the result
is very uncertain.
