INVADE CHILDEEN'fJ HOME AT
After about a month of investiga
tion, officials' of the public market on
Yamhill street announced yesterday
that they have completed a check of
persons of all races who are selling
produce on the market, determining
exactly those who are actual producers
or growers and those who are not
The Investigation has resulted in
fraudulent farmers being ousted from
the market. Ten arrests have been
made -in the process.
It is said now that the plan is so
worked out that those in charge of the
market have complete records of the
farmers and know by sight persons en
titled to the privileges of the market.
Investigations have been made by C.
W. Wyman and have been particularly
searching in the cases of Japanese
dealers, against whom there has been
more or less complaint. Mr. Wyman
says he has required each Japanese on
the market to produce his lease, and
after this he has required signatures.
affidavits and other information to ae
termlne their correctness.
Farms Are Visited.
Th farms have been visited and a
description taken of the stuff being
arown. This has been usea in cnecn-
ine un the kinds of stuff brought in
by these farmers. Similar' procedure
has been followed in cases of the white
farmers and Chinamen.
Out of !50 farmers on the market
yesterday, 30, it was reported, were
Japanese. There are 33 Japanese who
are registered so far and are entitled
to sell on the market. .
The market hoard has prepared a set
of new rules and regulations which will
tend to prevent fraud and will guaran
tee the quality of produce offered for
sale. Each producer will be required
to arive a card with his name and ad
dress with each purchase so tnat ne
can be found if the stuff sold is in
ferior in any way.
Eggs Most Be Stamped.
Each tKK sold on the market must
bear a stamp showing the name of the
producer and the date the egg was iaia.
Arrangements nave Deen maae aiso
for the sending of surplus produce to
charitable homes. Each of the homes
will have a donation box on the market
n which all produce not wanted by the
farmers can be placed. These boxes
will be sent to the homes. It Is said
this wttt mean a great saving to many
of the Institutions. The market offi
cials also are encouraging producers
to engage inmates of the homes as
salesmen in the market. Each pro
ducer is entitled, under the city ordi
nance, to one salesman.
Yesterday was the biggest day the
market has had. It was reported. Actual
heck kept by market officials showed
that there were about 30 tons of
produce brought In. About one ton re
mained at noon. It was estimated that
there were more than 6000 purchasers.
The count shows there were about 1000
crates of berries, 1000 dozen eggs, and
a ton of dressed chickens were sold.
Prices Lower Than Stores.
The prices were said to average con
siderably below store figures. Although
there were some dealers who asked
store prices, it was said that their
produce was of exceptional quality.
Although 43 new booths were In
stalled, making a total of 120 booths
altogether, there waa hardly room for
all the producers. In some cases the
producers had to double up. During
the day as many as six farmers occu
pied the same stall, one selling out and
giviug way to another.
A feature of the market was the
shopping from automobiles. Dozens of
autos passed along the street between
the booths and purchases were made
without the occupants having to leave
the machines. Market Master Gill has
issued a request that all cases of dis
courtesy or unfairness or dishonesty
on the part of farmers be reported to
him, and steps will be taken to bring
them to a stop. 1
