"We look only for quality, not the
producers." one of the women acidly
remarked at this point.
Mrs. W. L. Block, one of the members
of the committee, declared that if con
ditions remain as they are at present
a higher rent should be charged for
the more desirable stalls. Another
woman suggested that bulletin boards
be erected bearing the numbers of the
stalls and the producer's names. Sev
eral from the market declared they
were satisfied with the present ar
rangement. Karly Cloelas; Plaa Falls.
Another clause proposed to change
the time of opening the stalls from 8
to 9 o clock, but the amendment failed.
The ordinance, as revised by the com
mittee, also provided for closing the
market early in the afternoon, but this
also failed to pass. Speakers brought
out the fact that many people are un
able to come down town before & or 6
o'clock to do their shopping, while
many housewives could not go to the
market before 2 o'clock in the afternoon.
If you close early in the day said
one man. you are merely favoring the
leisure class. Why not leave it so that
the man who sells out early can go
home early in the day. while the one
who has some produce left can wait
and dispone of it to the people who
come late?"
In reply to this Mrs. Northrup said
the change was intended to protect
the producer. "A a rule a woman
does her marketing in the morning."
she said. "We should make a special
effort to get it finished then."
aa!ary C'oadltloM otei.
At this point someone In the audi
ence interrupted with. "Lots of us live
out in the suburbs and It's unfair to
them to close the stalls early."
The matter of Improving sanitary
conditions came up and a producer
asked: "What are we going to do with
our waste eat it? There are no gar
bage cans In the market."
Mrs. Northrup said she had seen some
there and that many more are needed,
and suggested that this would be
matter for the commission to consider.
Discussion also came up as to wheth
er bread and pastries should be sold in
the market. After a vigorous defense
of this by Mrs. Alexander Thompson
it was decided to permit housewives
to dispose of these products. t lsn,
however. It was recommended, should
not be sold in the public stalls.
It wa voted yesterday to continue
holding meetings to fight the cost of
living and engineer the changes in the
oublic market. The women will gather
every Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 at 11
brary hall. Mrs. Chapman having been
elected permanent chairman.
The recommendations read as fol
lows:
Your committee of housewives, appointed
August 1!, for the purpose of Investigating
conditions prevailing In the Carroll Public
market of Portland, made a personal in-ve-Mijcatlon
of conditions existing therein,
and submit their report as follows:
First We find that If the market is to
meet the designs of the founders, namely:
that It is to afford a place for the purpose
of displaying and selling products raised In
or near Portland, where consumers may
have the privilege of buying fresh products
at a reasonable price in the open market,
the practice of selling through agents should
be eliminated, and we recommend that pro
ducers be allowed to sell only their own
products.
Maximum Price I" osatis factory.
Second We find that the present practice
of fixing a maximum price is not satisfac
tory; that H is unfair to the consumer and
to certain of the producers. It t unfair to
the consumer for two reasons: the maximum
price fixed In most cases becomes the mini
mum price: and It results In the housewife
who patronises the market getting an in
ferior article for her money after she has
Kone to the market for It. since many or
all of the larger producers sell all of their
nest stock to the hotels, restaurants and
srrocery stores, and dlfpose of their Inferior
products on the market. It Is unfair to
many of the small producers who in many
cases sell their entire stock on the public
market, much of which Js of a superior
quality, but for which he gets the same
price that the larger producer gets for an
Inferior product. Kor these reasons we
recommend that the maximum price be discontinued.
Third We find that certain large produc
ers have a monopoly of the best and most
favored stalls on the market and continue
to hold these stalls from day to day to the
ailantase of themselves and to the detri
ment of other producers, and we recom
mend that a method of rotation be era
ploed whereby other producers may have
the advantages of these favored places.
Fourth We find that certain producers
have given short weights and have refused
to correct the matter when their attention
was called to the matter, or to retund the
money when aked to do so: others have i
sold products jhat were not what was rep
resented, some of which was unfit for ute.
We recommend that a definite penalty be
provided for offenses of this nature.
Sanitary Measures lax.
Fifth We find that certain health and
sanitary conditions be Investigated and Im
proved and we recommend that one of the
comfort stations proposed by the council be
located on the public market.
Sixth We find that certain persons block
the street and Impede the traffic at certain
times of the day by leaving their automo
biles stand on Yamhill street In the market
place while they Inspect the products and
their purchases, ana we recommena
that the practice be stopped, and that such
persons be required to park their machines
outride of the market.
Seventh We find that certain producers
ake a practice of storing their left-over
products lo nearby basements, and in put
ting them on the market the next day as
fresh products. That these basements
many Instances are unsanitary, foul places.
Inhabited by rats in great numbers which
romp at will over the food products to red
there, and wLtch in some instances n
been poisoned and left to die there.
We recommend that the practice or storing
be prohibited and that all producers be re
quired to take their left-over products home
with them.
Market master Held Derelict.
Eighth We find that the present market
aster is not doing his duty, and Is not en
forcing the provisions of the ordinance as
he should. That when his attention has
been called to certain abuses, be has said:
Let It go this time, and I am sure it will
not happen again."
We recommend that the present market-
master be discharged and that a commission
f three persons, one man and two women.
be appointed to do the work in his stead.
Ninth And we further find that the pres
ent ordinance, rules and regulations for the
control of the Carroll public market are in
sufficient either for the protection of the
consumer or the average producer, and your
committee have provided an amended ordl-
whlch Is designed to meet the re
quirements and to provide for the recom
mendations made in this report. We submit
the amended ordinance for your approval.
Respectfully submitted.

WASHINGTON. Augr. 28. Declaring
that the step Is necessary to control
the business of the five largest pack
ing; companies, the federal trade com
mission in a special report to Presl
dent Wilson recommends that opera
tion of refrigerator cars and of cars
used for transportation of meat anl
mala be declared a jtoTernmen
monopoly. It recommends further that
the property concerned, including: Icing:
stations and other facilities as well
as the cars, be acquire by the govern
ment. and railroads thereafter be
licensed to own and operate them. Th
big packers, the report says, now own
90 per cent of all the refrigerator
equipment In the country suitable for
the transport of fresh meat.
By unanimous vote the committee,
at a night session, rejected the Moses
amendment, which would extend the
licensing provisions of the Kenyon bill
to cover all enterprises doing any in
terstate business, without regard to
commodities or circumstances under
which the business operated.
Commission Reports Assailed.
Reports of the federal trade commis
sion on the five large packers and their
alleged control of the Industry are
"absolutely useless an a basis for pass
Ing legislation. U P. H. Weld, repre
sentative of Swift & Co.. assured the
senate agriculture- committee today.
Summing up his two-day argument
against federal regulation of the In
dustry as proposed in the Kenyon and
Kendrick bills, he challenged the truth
of the commission's findings in a half
dozen particulars, and ended by assail
ing the commission itself.
"Don't you resent having this sort
of evidence put before you?" he asked
the committee members. "Do you thtnk
vou ought to allow a government bu
reau to make this unjustified assault
on a useful and necessary Industry
The present country-wide system of
distribution by the five big packers
has grown up from their control of
refrigerator car lines In conjunction
with various pools." the trade commis
sion report says in part.
'In turn, the volume of traffic of
the five packers has enabled them to
secure from the railroads advantages
over competing shippers.
Expedited Service Given.
'Formerly in the shape of direct re
bates, these advantages are now
usually in expedited service to the big
packers' cars; in favorable mining
rules whlcn Include all their diversi
fied products and even many articles
not related to the packing industry; by
allowances paid to some of the big
packers by carriers for a part of the
transportation service; by favorable
arrangements and lease of stock yards
by the railroads to some of the big
packers: and by the sale to the rail
roads of bumping posts manufactured
by a subsidiary of one of the big five.

as long as six months. In 1917, the
cars of the 'big five' and their sub-
sidiary companies maintained an aver
age of 80.5 miles per car per day.
while the average for cars of their
competitors, the independent packing
companies, was only 54.5 miles."

Kill be hrld each alternate Tuesday of
the club year.
Profit In Car Operation.
The commission's Investigation of
the private car ownership has devel
oped the fact that while packers claim
losses, the report says "a proper re
vision of their car accounts" shows
the car operation has netted some prof
it. This amounted to 6.8 per cent in
1912, 3.4 per cent in 1914, and 4.3 per
cent in 1917.
"The prompt and efficient handling
of the traffic In meats and other per
ishable foods is of great public con
cern." the report says in making the
recommendations, "and it is also im
portant that all shippers should have
equal and adequate service. The rec
ommendations are adopted to correct
present inequalities of service and
rates as well as to prevent the dan
gers of monopolistic advantages."
Thomas E. Wilson, president of Wil
son & Co. arid chairman of the Institute
of American Meat Packers, in a state
ment here today, said the packers were
willing to submit the justice of the
commission's demands "in its report on
private car lines to the common sense
of the American public."
"I believe I'm the harDiest woman
in California today, and it's all because
or what Tanlac has done for me," said
Mrs. Eugene Smith, residing at 680
West 62d street, Los Angeles, in con
versation with the Tanlac representa
tive, who had heard of her remarkable
recovery and had called at her home to
obtain the facts. Mrs. Smith is an offi
cer in the Eastern Star and other lodges
and is very prominent socially. Her
husband holds a responsible position
wnn tne southern Pacific railroad.
When asked If she had any objection
to having her statement published, Mrs.
Smith said: "No, indeed; go right ahead
and put it in the papers It would be
ungrateful not to tell other suffering
people about this wonderful medicine."
Continuing, she said:
"For six years I suffered from a
complication of troubles, which finally
developed into a general breakdown. I
had awful pains around my heart,
which I was told was caused by pleu
risy. My kidneys seemed to be affected,
too, and I had constant pains in my
back. My neck and shoulders would
get stiff at times and my limbs would
swell and ache so I could hardly walk.
I was told once that my trouble was
caused by the condition of my teeth, so
I went to a dentist and had them all
treated, but I got absolutely no relief.
I took all kinds of medicine and treat
ments, but just continued to get worse
all the time, and I hardly ever had a
minute s peace. I was so nervous that
even the ringing of the door bell would
completely upset me, and it seemed im
possible to get a good night's sleep. I
was losing strength rapidly and fell off
until I only weighed one hundred
pounds. Finally my condition got so
bad they took me to the hospital and
I stayed there six weeks, but I didn't
seem to improve in the least. I was
brought back home and had Just about
ost ail nope when a friend of mine sug
gested that I take Tanlac. I didn't see
how it or any other medicine could help
me after everything else had failed, but
I consented to try it, and it is simply
wonderful what this medicine did for
me. I began to feel better after the
first few doses. My nerves became calm
and I could sleep better. As I contin
ued taking the medicine all the pains
in my back, sides, shoulders and limbs
disappeared, and my strength was re
turning rapidly. By the time I had tak
en four bottles of Tanlac I felt as well
and strong as I ever did in my life, and
when I got on the scales I was sur
prised to see that I had actually gained
eighteen pounds. My kidneys seem to
be in perfect condition, and I'm like a
different woman. All my friends and
neighbors are talking about my won
derful improvement, because they knew
of the dreadful condition I was in be
fore taking Tanlac. My husband Is just
as happy over my improvement as I
am, and says Tanlac is the most won
derful thing he ever heard of. The re
sults from Tanlac must be permanent.
for it has been four months since I
took my last dose, and I feel as well
now as I did then. If everybody knew
what a fine medicine Tanlac is there
would be less suffering in this world."

Commerce Commission Opposes.
"The trade commission presented a
report diametrically opposed to that
handed down by the interstate com
merce commission, composed of men
trained m railroad work," said Mr. Wil
son. "After a six-year study of the
question the interstate commerce com
mission report said: 'An important
part of the Interstate commerce of the
L'nited States is transported in private
ly owned cars. It is to the interest of
the owners, carriers and public that
their operation should be continued un
der such rules and regulations as will
insure their efficient handling without
discrimination against any shipper or
particular description of traffic. "
"Unless we can be assured of more
efficient and economical governmental
control than was the case with the
railroads, telegraph and telephone com
panies, neither the producer nor con
sumer can hope to benefit from such
legislation," Everett C. Brown, presi
dent of the National Livestock Ex
change, which is composed of stock
yard brokers, told the senate agricul
tural committee today. The witness
appeared in opposition to the Kenyon
and Kendrick bills proposing license
regulation of the packing industry and
transfer of refrigerator cars and
stockyards.
Mr. Brown took exception to testi
mony given Deiore tne committee oy
Federal Trade commissioner colver.
and remarked that "in our great Indus
try it has seemed more proper to speak
of the tirade' commission than the
trade commission."
Independents Are Aggressive.
'The witness," he said. In referring
to Mr. Colver, "stated the so-called in
dependent packers existed merely at
the sufferance of the large packers.
f this be true, how does be account for
the fact that at many of our great mar
kets, the independents repeatedly and
aggressively set the pace in buying
livestock? Would the so-called 'trust'
voluntarily permit the continuation of
such expensive 'sufferance?' "
Refrigerator car development, Mr.
Brown classed as "a bright spot in the
history of the packing industry," and
urged caution in legislating upon their
use.
Ownership of the stock yards by the
packers, Mr. Brown said, was not a
to summon meetings if necessary and
to telegraph the result of the balloting.
Radicals Demand Strike.
Announcing that they had refused
the -proposal of the director-general.
the committee of 100 representing the
shopmen made public a letter sent to
the various locals calling for a strike
ote. The committee was in session
several hours today, debate becoming
bitter at times, it was said, the more
radical of the members demanding a
trike to compel more money.
Asking "very serious consideration
of the -question, the committee told the
ii ions that any additional general in
crease in the wages of railroad em
ployes, virtually all of whom have
made or will make demands for more
money, would include the shopmen and
they were told not to forget that a j
trike now meant that tile shopmen
were striking alone to force an in
crease for the entire 2,000,000 railroad
mployes.
Pending the Issuance of an official
strike vote, it was urgently requested
by international officers that all men
should remain on the job.
President's Word Final.
Director-General Hines, according to
letter sent to the locals, told the com
mittee that the proposition as presented
by the president was final and that
there would be no wage increases
granted to any other class of railway
employes, as a class, but in the event
of unjust inequalities, as between in
dividuals, adjustments involving In
creases to equalize rates of pay would
be made where justified.
The committee thereupon informed
the locals that the director-general
had been advised that his proposition
could not be accepted as a basis of
settlement by them, and continued :
"Practically every class of railroad
employes has now submitted requests
for very substantial increases over
existing rates of pay. It Is well that
our members give very serious consid- i

eration to this fact. If there is to
be any general increase in the wages
of railroad employes, the federated
shop trades will receive the same con
sideration. Don't fail to give this state
ment careful thought and don't forget
that if the federated shop trades be
come involved in a strike now, you are
striking alone to force an increase for
the 2,000,000 railroad employes.
"In view of the foregoing facts, the
statements contained in the president's
letter and the responsibility that must
be assumed, if a suspension of work is
to take place, your executive council
has decided that it would fail in its
duty were it to authorize a strike
until the membership have had an op
portunity to decide their course of
action on this proposition. It is not
our intention to shirk any of our re
sponsibilities as executive officers, and
the wishes of a constitutional majority
of the membership, expressed by their
vote as hereinafter directed, will be
carried out."
The letter then gives instructions for
an immediate summoning of the mem
bers of the various locals to take a
strike vote. It was pointed out that
owing to the large numbers involved,
it must be understood that the respec
tive international organizations would
not be obliged to pay regular strike
benefits beyond the limits of the funds I
available for that purpose. .
Director-General Hines today
quested the board of railway wages
and working conditions to take up
promptly any claims that have been

13 your business traveling on it3 own private road
wif a gate locked behind you against trespassers or
competitors?
If you travel on your own private drive-way you
can truly go as you please.
The maker of a patent article or the possessor of
secret processes travels a road forbidden to competi
tors. This autocrat can choose his own gait crawl,
walk or run, or sit down and rest.
However, this choosing of your own gait depends
on how securely your competition is barred. If, as in
the case of the phonograph, the piano-player or aspirin,
the patents have expiredthen the rate of speed may
be fixed by competition.
The very astute owner of a patent travels his own
road at a smart gait, anticipating the time when the
course may be uncomfortably crowded.

T RUSHING the teeth two or three
times a day is fine, but it
doesn't go far enough.
No toothbrush ever made and
no amount of brushing with any
tooth preparation will altogether
stop the tendency to the formation
of tartar upon the teeth, and when
tartar forms, the foundation is laid,
for tooth troubles without end.
Your only salvation lies in having a thorough ex
amination of your teeth made by a dental specialist who
knows how.
Registered Dentists using the E. R. Parker System
make these examinations without any charge, and the
examinations are so complete that you have the satis
faction of finding out the condition of every tooth in
