trate in close communities. They J
have wonderful business co-operation i
and they control the produce trade in
many sections. Because of these fac
tors they gradually drive Americans
out of every business they enter."
Mr. McClatchey said the Japanese
practically control the Imperial val
ley, in southern California; have 85
per- cent of the Rocky 'Ford melon
business of Colorado, hold half of
the Hood River apple district, and
control the southern California fish
eries. The speaker recited a number of
figures from the California bureau of
vital statistics tending to show that
the Japanese increase about four
times as rapidly as Americans In Cal
ifornia, and that while the .American
birth rate there is decreasing the
Japanese birth rate is rising. Plans
to admit Japanese by ratios or pro
portions based on numbers now here
or now citisens, such as the Gullck
plan and the Dillingham bill, Mr. Mc
Clatchey characterized as traps which
would result finally in the breeding
of enough Japanese in this country
to control It. Under the Gulick plan,
in 140 years 100,000,000 Japanese
would be living- in America, he said.

Federal Reserve Banks Likely to B

WASHINGTON, April 3. The ad
ministration measure, under which
the federal reserve board hopes ef
fectually to check speculation was
passed today by the senate and now
goes to the president.
Under the bill discount rates at
each of the 12 reserve banks, with
the "approval, review and determina

be graduated or progressed on the
basis of amount of advances ad dis

the federal reserve bank to the bor
Enactment of this measure as an
amendment to the federal reserve law
was recommended by Governor Hard
ing of the federal reserve board in
his annual report.
Governor Harding, in his annual re
port, said that "in this way It would
be possible to reduce excessive bor
rowings of member banks and induce
them to hold their own large bor
rowers in check without raising the
basic rate. The federal reserve banks
would thus be provided with an ef
fective method of dealing with credit
expansion more nearly at the source
than Is now practicable and without
unnecessary hardship to banks and
borrowers who are conducting their
affairs within the bounds of mode
"The extension of credit, set in mo
tion by the war, must be checked,
he said. "Credit must be brought
under effective control, and its flow
be once more regulated and governed
with careful regard to the economic
welfare of the country and the needs
of Its producing industries."
TWO STILLS ARE SEIZED
Man Under Arrest Admits Making

MARSHFIELD, Or., April 3. (Spe

been making raids in this country, to
gether with Constable Goodman, ar
rested Nick Webber at Delmar, a set
tiement near the Smith mine, and
lzed' two stills and a large quantity
of home-made whisky. It is believed
that more moonshine is concealed
about the place and a search is go
The stills were made of copper and
each would hold ten gallons. Webber,
after being arrested, confessed that
he had been making whisky and sell
ing it. He was bound over to await
action by the federal grand jury and
was confined in the county jail in
default of $600 bail. '

Packers Say Sale of Lower Grades
Will Be Unprofitable Unless
Market Situation Changes.
ASTORIA. April 3. (Special.) The
spring fishing Bea'son on the Columbia
river will open at noon May 1 and
while extensive preparations are
being made for it by both fishermen
and packers, the indications are that
there will be less new gear in the
water than for many years.
The reason for this Is the prevail
ing high prices of materials. For in
stance, linen twine is now $4.05 a
pound on new orders, although some
of the packers who had placed their
orders before the recent rise In price
are selling it to their fishermen at
$3. 4a a pound. Even at the latter
figure a new gillnet 850 fathoms in
length will cost close to $1000, a price
that is almost prohibitive, especial
ly as a successful fisherman I must
have two nets, one of small and the
other of large mesh.
Old eta Bring- Patched J.
As a result, practically no new nets
have been knit this winter and spring,
the fishermen preparing their gear
for service by merely adding a few
papers of new twine to their old web.
Engines and boat material have also
been boosted in price, until a power
boat which could have been built
and 'equipped a few years ago for
from $600 to $700, now costs from
$1300 to $1600. This has greatly ham
pered the construction of new fish

though scores of old ones are under
What the coming season will bring
forth is a mystery, but the indications
are there will be a. good run of Chi
nooks during the openings days and
they will command a high price. Large
numbers of Chinooks have come in
during the closed season and reports
say that more fish have gone to the
natural spawning grounds in the
upper river this spring than during
the corresponding period in many
Kicbance Limit a Kxport.
The market is clear of he higher
grades of salmon but there are large
quantities of canned silversides,
chums and lower grade Chinooks
still in the hands of the packers with
almost no demand. One reason for
this is said to be the low rates' of
foreign exchange, which have pre
vented or at least have limited the ex
portation of Alaska reds and Puget
sound cockeye, thus glutting the do
mestic market with the cheaper
The demand for first quality Chi
nooks is strong and all that can be
packed will be quickly taken. There
will be a scramble for the early fish
and many believe the price paid the
fishermen for the raw salmon, which
was lli.i cents a pound in 1919, will
De not less than 12 cents this veai-
On the other hand, the prices for the
lower grades of fish promise to be
way down and some packers aver
that unless there is a decided change
in the market situation, there will be
no fall packing.
