PRODUCERS WILL UNITE
FRUITGROWERS OF SALEM YICnT
ITY FAVOR OIUJAXIZATICJf.
Details Were Discussed at a 'Meeting
Held Yesterday Contracts to Be
Signed April 2S.
SALEM. April 14. The cured fruit pro
ducers of the vicinity of Salem held n
mass meeting at the City Hall today, in
the interests of an organization of fruit
growers. There was a .very good attend
ance from all sections of Marlon and
yestcrn Polk Counties. Charles Long, di
rector for Marlon County of the Cured
Fruit Association of the Pacific North
west, called the meeting to order and pre
sided until Dan Webster, of Rosedale. was
elected chairman, and James R. Shepard,
of Zena, Polk County, secretary.
While, the meeting was waiting for the
arrival of officers of the association, an
informal discussion was held for the pur
pose of framing questions to be propound
ed concerning the contract submitted by
the association. The contract was read
by the secretary, and copies were placed
in the hands of each person present. The
preliminary discussion was to the effect
that while the men who are at the head of
the movement are honest and wholly re
liable, the growers must take up the mat
ter as a business proposition and see that
the contract Is so drawn that there will be
no opportunity for an unfair advantage
to be taken by the officers. It was made
clear that the compensation of officers
must be strictly stated and limited, so
that In case of a large crop unreasonable
salaries will not be paid. All present were
enthusiastically in favor of a union of
dried fruit producers, the only question
which remained unsettled being the de
tails of the plan of organization.
Shortly before noon. President Wm. Gal
loway, of the association; W. W. Phillips,
cashier of the Alnsworth National Bank,
of Portland, and J. H. Fletcher, of Van
couver, arrived. Judge Galloway said that
the organization of "the association as at
present established is only temporary, and
that at a meeting to be held in June all
the growers who Join the Association will
have a voice In the election of permanent
officers and the adoption of a permanent
plan of operation. It Is left to the grow
ers themselves to my who shall manage
their affairs, and they must choose men
in whom they can have confidence. The
object of the union Is not to organize a
trust in the usual sense of the word, for
while the trust that we are all combat
ing has for Its object the restriction of
production and the raising of prices to
the consumer, the fruitgrowers' associa
tion has no such endn view. It is de
sired that as much fruit as possible shall
be produced and that the consumer shall
get it at a reasonable price. The object
of the association Is to reduce the cost of
transferring the cured product from the
grower to the consumer to cut off some
of the "middle men" expenses, that the
growers may profit thereby.
In the afternoon Phillips said that he
was until two years ago a resident of Cal
ifornia, where he owned and still owns
prune orchards. He gave an account of
the experience of the California- raisin
growers, and said that the financial suc
cess of the growers In that state Is due to
their organization. He said that five di
rectors having absolute control of the
product of the orchards of Oregon and
Washington could do much more In every
particular in the way of marketing the
fruit than can the individual growers. He
cited the Instance of the attempt of the
raisin-growers to get a better price for
their late raisins. These bad been sold to
the wineries at 35 per ton. After the or
ganization of the Raisin Growers' Asso
ciation. President Kearney made an order
that no raisins should be sold to the wine
makers atless than $1 per ton. The wine
men protested that they could not pay
that price, but the association held out,
and in the end the growers got their
Mr. Phillips urged growers to encourage
fruit canneries and sell as much of their
fruit as possible for canning purposes, as
by this means the quantity of dried fruit
can be reduced. This Is permitted by tha
association contract. He said there should
be canneries In all sections of the state
to take as large a part as possible of
each year's fruit crop.
In answer to questions, Mr, Phillips ex
plained that, under the proposed contract,
all the fruit will be sold irrespective of
original ownership, and the proceeds of
each grade will be divided pro rata among
the growers who put Into the association
prunes of that grade. The salaries of th
officers will be paid out of the 2 per cent
of the proceeds, and if any balance re
mains of the 2 per cent it will be turned
over to the growers. In this connection,
he said that the growers will make a mis.
take If they let a desire to keep down the
salaries of officers prevent them from se
curing the services of competent men to
manage the association. If "the market
ing Of the crop Is properly managed, the
additional price received will more than
make up for the expenses of the manage
ment, and In any event the cost of mar
keting through the association wui oe
much less than by selling to commission
men or local buyers.
J. H. Fletcher related the experience o!
the growers of the vicinity of Vancouver
in dealing with commission men. and said
that he felt that the growers had coma
to the parting of the ways, where they
must choose whether they will continue
to be robh,ed by the. middle men or will
take themafteVotaarketlng their crop
Into their .own-hands. He dwelt with
emphasis upon the need of greater care In
curing fruit, for this state must secure
and maintain a reputation for turning out
flrst-class dried fruit. He did not favor a
union with the California association, but
thought there should be an understanding
that the growers of neither state will cut
prices In competition with eachother.
Following Mr. Fletcher. Judge Galloway
explained several features of the contract
concerning which questions were asked.
Owing to the early hour at which Messrs.
Galloway. Phillips and Fletcher wera
compelled to leave In order to catch tha
train, growers were not asked to sign con
tracts today, but by rising to their feet
all present Indicated their desire to go
Into the association. After some general
discussion regarding fruit Interests, the
meeting adjourned until April 2S, at which
time the contracts will be signed. Judging
by the spirit of today's meeting, the asso
ciation will gain control of at least 75 per
cent of the prune acreage of this vicinity.

FOREST GROVE. April 14. Another
chapter In Forest Grove's experience as a
prohibition town was begun tonight, when
the City Council received an application
for a saloon license from Melkl Johnson,
a well-known real estate agent, who was
born and brought up In this vicinity. In
the ordinance accompanying this applica
tion the restrictions on drug stores are
made much more stringent, allowing only
sales upon physicians' prescriptions for
actual sickness, and In case of any eva
sion the buyer, the druggist and the phy
slclar are liable to severe penalties. The
license fee named Is $1000, payable quar
terly in advance, and the saloon-keeper is
also to be under $1000 bonds to maintain
an orderly house and observe his agree
ment with the city. No outward -display
or advertisement is to be permitted, and
there must b nothing within the saloon
of an offensive character. No intoxicated
person may be a patron, nor are students
or minors to be allowed within the doors.
The saloon must close by midnight, and
not open earlier than 5 A. M.. while Sun
days and election days are to be observed
by a complete cessation of business. On
occasions of public gatherings there are
to be special Deputy Marshals to guard
against the possibility of disorder, and the
expense of these is to be borne by the
licensee. And to all these agreements the
applicant Is to be bound not merely by tha
possibility of a fine of from $50 to $200. and
the forfeiture of his license, but also by
a civil contract with a $1000 penalty. The
city, for its part, may revoke the license
at any time.
Should the ordinance carry, there will
come the Interesting question of location
for a saloon, as all the city deeds contain
a liquor forfeiture clause, except those
covering land In the "Cherokee strip."
