th Hudson Bay building was burning.
Tha ballroom was deserted. In those

ar said by the Exposition officers to
pass through the poultry department

tha alleys separating the hens from
tha crowds are narrow the hens lack
tha retirement and quiet that are often
necessary to the best laying.
It Is a fact not always understood
that the management and feeding of

the fowls are treated alike. It has
frequently been asked whether the col

The answer Is, that such Is not the
caae. Ha has no.more to do with the
management and feeding of the pens
from tha college than has any other
outsider. The contest Is under the
management of the University of Cali
fornia and no other poultrymen. The

MARKETING BUREAU CHIEF SAYS
GROWERS MAY TAKE ACTIOX.
Union of Co-operative Organisations,
However, Is Declared to Be Out
side Limits of Law.
LEWISTON, Idaho, Aug. 21. (Spe
cial.) The Northwest Growers' and
Shippers' League, organized last Fall
by the fruit-growing districts and by
the principal fruit-shipping agencies of
the Pacific Northwest, cannot legally
control and fix the price of Northwest
ern fruit, is the opinion of Charles J.
Brand, head of the bureau of market
ing and rural organization, Washing
ton, D. C, who has been traveling
throughout this district, . He said:
Any body of erowers or stockholders In a
concern can agree upon prices and market
ing practices under the provisions of the
Federal laws, but the amendment to tha
sixth section of the anti-trust law, popularly
Quoted aa exempting farmer - and labor
unions from the nrovisions of th trust law,
simply restores the rights of any Individual
corporation to these organizations oi
farmers or laborers..
A co-oneratlve fmltrrowinr organization
can act in the aame manner aa the 2SOO
stockholders of the steel corporation. The
limits of the law are passed, however, when
several of these co-operative units com to
.ether and attemnt to control Drlces.
A parallel of the present situation Is
found in the caae of the lima bean growera
of California, who were warned by th
bureau aome time ago that they were vio
lating the anti-trust laws when tney at
tempted to control the prices of an entire
district by the combination of primary units.
Mr. Brand recently established a
marketing office in North Yakima,
placing two representatives of his
bureau in charge to provide reliable
marketing Information gathered from
all parts of the United states, lie nas
recently extended the work to a much
larger scale throughout the Northwest,
