Lack of Co-operation Among
Growers Impedes Extension
. in East, Is Claim.
Work of Organizations Outlined.
Advancement in Advertising, Mar
keting and Growing Said to Be
Due to TTnlted Methods.
NEW YORK. July 4. (Special Cor
respondence.) That petty politics and
Jealousy amowt the growers of apples
and pears In the Northwest have been
obstacles to the more rapid develop
ment of the markets of the East and
of Europe is apparent from interviews
with several firms who handle the bulk
of the New York shipments. Not that
each says this in so many 'words, for
with the exception of the representa
tives of the great co-operative organi
sations of the Northwest, the dealers
thrive on this competition among the
growers. When there is a lack of co
operation in marketing one city is
flooded with fruit, prices drop and the
buyer with his cold-storage plant near
at hand reaps a handsome profit.
Although each broker refuses to be
Interviewed and quoted on the subject,
he lets you know that "there is some
thing rotten in Denmark," that some
fraud is being perpetrated upon some
body of growers whose fruit he does
not handle. . .
That the Northwest Fruit Exchange
and the North Pacific Fruit Distribu
tors have done much toward eliminat
ing the middleman and extending mar
kets and that the prices received this
year were generally very good must
not be forgotten.
Growers Demand Obeyed.
The failure of the California apple
crop, the shortage of the supply of bar
reled apples from the East and the
consumption of the Colorado apples in
the Southern markets have combined
to make the growers' demands obeyed.
The selling of fruit f. o. b.. which was
unheard of until introduced a lew
years ago by the Northwest Fruit Ex
change, was made possible.
There was less loss due to lack or
co-operation and' independent market
ing than will be the case another year,
with conditions reversed. Add to these
considerations the multiplication of
t-earlng acreage that is taking place
And It will be seen how necessary is
the development of a. market in every
city, town and hamlet of the United
States and the increase of the foreign
Tr;s is the task undertaken by the
Northwest Fruit Exchange through its
116 agencies. Although this organiza
tion is now beginning but the fifth
year of its existence, its share in creat
ing the Increased consumption of ap
ples has been a great one.
Co-Operatlon Is Urged.
An important step was made two
years ago, when W. T. Gwyn, manager
of the Northwest Fruit Exchange, es
tablished the first branch office of a
fruit selling organization in London.
From this office foreign sales have
been made which greatly relieve the
home markets.
- The American Fruit Exchange repre
sents the Northwest Fruit Exchange in
New York and throughout the eastern
part of the United States.
"Political claptrap should be elimi
nated," says A. R. Rule, manager of
the North American Fruit Exchange.
"There is need of a big organization,
pulling together. When there is fric
tion, the grower pays the bills. Energy
that goes towards misrepresentation
and fighting some one should be used
to develop new markets. Do not stop
the plow to argue.
"There are two organizations in the
Northwest that stand out above all the
rest in sales and distribution work.
Both have a logical place in the field.
Work: la Divided-
"They seem to be dividing their
work. The Northwest Fruit Exchange
handles only fancy fruit, being dis
criminating in the contracts which it
makes. The Pacific Fruit Distributors,
which is purely co-operative, must take
everything that is offered. They must
handle all the fruit that is delivered to
them. All that both are doing is for
the good of the grower."
Sixteen or 18 years fgo, when J. H.
Stewart, father of the fruit industry
of the Rogue River Valley, shipped the
first apples East, he bad to pay the
freight charges for iais pains. Prior
to 1905 good prices for fruit were un
heard of. The advancement in adver
tising and market!!?- and growing has
oeen due to co-operation.

tlon of the State Board of Health with

Result of Scandal.
LONDON, July 4. The British ' gov

July 1 as to whether the firm of Lip

Proposed Constitutional Amendment Is
Designed to Permit State to Get
All Revenues From Corporations.
OLYMPIA, Wash., July 4. (Special.)
A proposed constitutional amendment.
designed to do away witn tne present
general property tax system has been
prepared by the Washington State Tax
Commission, which will ask the next
Legislature to submit the measure to
the voters at the general election of
The principal change Is the substi
tution for the provision for "uniform
and equal taxation of all property" of
the new provision that all "taxes shall
be uniform upon the same class or sud-
This provision, the commission points
out, would allow segregation of sources
of state and local revenues, so that the
state could obtain its revenues solely
from railroads and other public serv

would do away with the present neces
sity for annual attempted equalization
of assessments of various counties for
the purpose of distributing state taxes
equitably. i

jected similar proposals. Another new
