Albaky, April , 175.
En. Rkoibtkh : Noticing a statement In the
Orvpon Granger of April tot. 1875. from 8. D.
Adair, J now set down to the painful task of
answering it painful because the statement
contains nothing of trnth to answer, and it l
a hard matter to answer an article of unquali-
nea nuseiuiods. I promise to spare no personal
ttiea, only snytng I am responsible for the
matter contained In this article.
The first grain belonging to Parker Morris
was received on the Stittt of November and
taken out the 8th day of December, 1874, is Mr.
Adair's first statement. Now this is mlse,as to
grain lying the time he states. Mr. Adair for
gets that we commenced to load this grain on
Tuesday, December Sth, taking on 100 tons.
and oo the SSrth and 80th taking on Sift tons.
maamg in tons out or Ml tons, teavlngSMtona
over one month. r. Adair claims that there
were 411 tons, while the troth is there was hut
S14 tons.' I will nay so the public may see dear
ly, we were working on this last SH tons when
the barge landed alongside the warehouse.
Here was the trouble: Mr. Adair refused to
land the barge alongside the Middlesex; as It
was my grain, I demanded that it should be
landed alongside the Middlesex, but the demand
was refused and here comes in the 4 tons.
Adairsayshedidnot charge anything for pass
ing It through the warehouse; bnt remember he
forced this grain into his warehouse, and would
have taken the entire barge load had 1 not
have been present to forbid it, at a cost of Sc a
ton, nestdes causing us to pay l"c per ton truck
age on the entire amonnt, making a bill of
327 03 In favor of Adair to be paid by shippers.
Parker A Morris. Thin is a true statement thns
thr. Now I say there was only 330 tons of
freight but what was forced into the warehouse
by 8. D. Adair. There should have been 700
tons paid for, which I agreed to pay for, and
did pay according to written contract, which
was Xie per ton, amounting to just 175, 1 pay
ing $61. besides doing 90 worth of work, mak
ing 20 more than he says in his article; then I
paid 96 for trucking said grain to ship. So it
will be seen I paid out on that 530 tons of grain
ftSi. This is the amount that we, Parker ft
Morris, were out. Mr. Adair's bill run thus
409 storage, 61 piling. 96 trucking, 9c a pound
from Albany to Portland, 3c from Portland to
Astoria, twine 5oe this last being to mend
sacks that they bu rated. The amount I would
have had to pay had I signed the bill to get this
1400 tons from the warehouse, while only one-
half of it passed through the house by virtue of
contract, was RJ10. This bill I did not sign be
cause It wu not the bill contracted for. The
Just bill was 558, making 553 of unjust bill
which I say I offered to sign, under protest.
offering to secure the pay by allowing them to
hold the bills of lading ; but they would do
There was 180 tons of freight In the lot sent
by the Ohio, and they had no orders for any
money from Captain Scott. Did they have any
right to hold Captain Scott's grain without an
order from him? I suppose Captain Scott was
perfectly willing to take us, Parker ft Morris,
for his boat-load of freight, and 1 doubt whether
the Ohio man told them any ting about de
taining our grain. He can say how It is, as I
consider Mr. Scott a gentleman, and wish
could say so by those other parties.
Now I have waybills for 830 tons of freight
from Parker ft Morris' warehouse, Albany,
reading thus : "Received on hoard Willamette
Chief, to be delivered side of Middlesex.' This,
gentle reader, is 130 tons of Mr. Adair's grain ;
46 tons he run from barge makes the amonnt
Mr. Adair claimed on. Now bear in mind we
had a contract, written, to pay for this grain
when sold. Now should Mr. Adair have the
right to run this grain info Farmer's Ware
house and lock It up? Had be any right to the
grain at all a I say he had no right, and would,
if It was to do over again, buy the amount they
had locked up, and then bring suit to recover
damages, as they were great.
, One word more and t am done with this part
of his subject. We would not have had any
grain over the 1st day of June in their house,
had they not have stopped work. Mr. Pearson
Is here to bear me out that everything was in
running order, and Mr. Cherry, Secretary,
ordered us to stop loading after we got the 48
tons on. And I will here say, I believe it was
done to get extra pay on the grain am fully
satisfied it is so. Never knew what waa the
cause of the stoppage of loading the Middlesex
until this communication came to light. Will
Mr. Adair please tell us why he ordered Mr.
Cherry to stop all hands as soon as the 4B tons
were on board?
This is a true statement, and Mr. Adair, If
he desires, can have plenty of proof. Now you
have 630 tons, and no more. Each and every
bushel above this amount was forced into this
warehouse agulnstlaw, contracts, and every
thing else, and every statement of Mr. Adair's
is baaed upon falsehoods, and he knows it.
Mr. Adair says :
"Sow aa to comparison of loading at Portland
or Astoria, Observer .(that is A. B. Morris).
makes a most ridiculous statement. He not
only seta forth the charge at Astoria, but pre
sume, to get his wharfage and weighing done
in Portland for nothing.''
Now I say here Is another of Adair's misstate
ments, for I never paid one oent at Astoria for
weighing grain, outside of their warehouse
never paid on oent at Portland for weighing
grain, nor one eent storage on grain, without
I kept 11 over 30 days. " Mr. Adair is not posted:
there is not another house with the saine rule
Mr. Adair baa. Even Mr. Goldsmith did not
charge us storage at Portland. The rulea of the
Holiday Una were to take freight at that time
for cents per bushel, delivering to the vessel
front boats or cars there is no extras about it.
Mr. Adair ought to know that when a ship is
chartered at Portland the shipper does not pay
towage. He does know It. Mr. Adair says he
should have bad pay on L400 tons. Now why
does he drop off 800 tons, tor there were 1,700
tons? The facta are, Mr. Adatr, you do not un
derstand your business. Doe the shipper pay
for towing veaseles over the Columbia bar to
Astoria? Too will say no. So say I. Neither
do they pay towage up or down tb Columbia
river. If I charter at Portland. I pay nothing;
If I charter at Astoria, I pay s cents more
freight ; then if I pass through your warehouse
I'pay yon cent per ton ; then I pay 17 oent
per ton for i rucking this la an extra, But to
the public: i hope yon will take warning, aad
if yon desire to load your wheat at Astoria,
have it landed by the aide of your ship, for in
330 tons run through the-Farmers Warehouse,
we had OS sacks of cracked wheat ; of 680 tons
landed from barge over side of ship, only 13
sacks of cracked wheat. Ton will bear In mind
chicken feed will not sell for asmuch, at As
toria, as good clean wheat, and yon win also
bear in mind it casta extra every Urn you
handle your wheat. .
Adair says Observer is not an authorised
agent of onr Company, and consequently has
no right to establish rates ibrna. Now I am no
aatBOrized agent, neither would I be ; bat, &u

Sammy, was Morris falnely misrepresenting
you, or Is Adair misrepresenting Morris, or
Observer "? I think I would bate to make as
sertions and mil to prove them. He says
"Observer lays an blame on the Astoria ware
house company, and makes misstatements to
attain that end, which makes. It evident to my
mma tnat tne object of the, article is to malici
ously mislead the farmers of the country in or

man who will give his word, as Mr. B. Gold
smith did, anal then write an order apon this
word, is no better than Mr. Adair; for Mr.
Adair gave his word to load, and went to Port
land to get rid of It. So I wonld not believe
