ADDRESS OF C. E. MOORE
- Delivered before the CorvnlHs Farmers?
Clab, AprU 5, 1S73.
In all of our operations we should
move with prudence and care, and all
of our : discussions should be marked
with candor. It is not only unprofita
ble, but very disastrous, that we should
deceive ourselves.- We must not expect
. too much from the attempt which we
are now making to regulate the storing
and . shipping of our . products. This
business is of vast magnitude, in the
aggregate, but of small moment to each
individual farmer, or as applied to one
bushel of grain. It has been stated that
it is better to depend upon the law of
' . supply and demand, that it, will regulate
' prices. If such large sums, have been
inade'as in some cases are reported, other
buyers and shippers will come, and, by
; competition, bring the price of surplus
products to the highest possible figure
that can be afforded. - 2fow let us see if
there is not really something in this
matter, and if we had not better stop
wher-e we are, and depend upon compe
tition to regulate thjs whole matter. It
; is natural for a man who is a trader (or a
speculator if you please to call him), and
has capital, to be looking around for the
best place to invest his nioney. He will
not lose sight of Oregon, and if he can
come here and make one or two hundred
fliniisa rirl rlAllara in a Kincrlik Rpitann.
with; a small capital, will he not be
Now.'let us see if there is not really
- something in the shipping business. 'I

Besides, you Will have to pay an agent

will be some delay in getting your

merce the business of their lives, and
admitting also that the figures above are
correct, and that we would have to - sell
as low next year as we have sold this,
and that the market abroad is as good.
The average cost of a bushel of wheat,
sacked andon board the ship at Portland,
is put at 90 cents,, and the expenses of
freight, storing, . sacks, . and . handling
here ia4;he valley, at 25 cents, leaving to
to the producer 05 cents per bushel for
his wheat. This is thought to be about
the average price the, farmer has receiv
ed, and the shippers paid this season. - I
put the average price at tku-vallia at 61
cents, and the cost of patting Hop board
6hlp from here at 29 cents; 29 plus 61
equals 90 cents pec bushel, sacked and

. Ve will now reduce the price of ocean

13 cents difference in the cost of a bushel

Four cents a bushel profit ; and to arrive
j' at this we must put the ocean: freight at
9'M per ton as low as any oi tne iort
land papers put it, I think. Let us look.
. for a uiomcn tat the prospect-for - ocean
-ireignt next season, it it is unaerstooa
that thS farmers are going into the
shipping business for themselves, is it
- not likely tnat these old shippers will
want to make money in some way?
' They will be likely to make an effort to
charter all the ships "coming here (asNI
think with success), and we will be com
pelled to re-charter from them, and prob
ably at so high a figure that we would
. make a losing business shipping .wheat
u ioreign ports. ; -
It is hinted by some that the farmers
of Oregon had better hold out the idea
that they intend to ships so as to scare
the shipper, and make him pay us a
higher price. I am of the opinion that
' this course will, .if attempted, prove a
failure, if not a disaster. It is best to
make no false motion ;-for it is not like
ly that the speculator will scare worth a
cent, by any, kind. of humbug we may at
tempt to set up. -
- From the beginninig of the farmers'
meetinga here and elsewhere in the val
ley, I have had no idea but what the
shipper was paying about as high a price
as he could afford, or was going to pay
for our surplus products. If we had re
ceived here at Corvallis the highest price
for all our wheat, say 80 cents, the ship,
per could not have made very large
profits, it, indeed, he had made anything
at an, oucsiue oi tne price oi nis ireignt,
on the Corvallis wheat. , And the same
is true of wlieat bought at other points
in the Willamette valley. . The cause for
low prices is here in our midst. We
allow too many middle-men, and pay
mem too muen. - t reignt nas Deen too
high, but is lower now, . and will stay
lower li we rase tne proper course.
- The fault is with ourselves, and the
remedy in our own hands.. We can, if
we will, always get good prices. There
are some who always do. It has been
said the farmers could, do nothing 'for
themselves by holding L meetings. I
think we can do much. We can gain
information and this -is what we need,
and after we get it, act upon jt.
The whole system of wheat storing in
Oregon is wrong, because it has a ten
dency to get the producer a lower price,
and make it no cheaper to the consumer.
There is nothing wrong in the mere
matter of 5 cents a busheffor storing and
handling. If this is all the warehouse
man gets, ne win not get ncn very last.
But he is generally the paid agent of the
buyer, and it is his business to get the
producer as low a price as he can ; or, in
other words, to buy for his employers as
cheap as he can. And it is but reason
able to suppose that the man who is the
most successful will get the highest price.
It is so in all branches of business, and.
J. presume it is in this. Then the ware
housemen are so anxious to accommo
date the producer that they take grain
in bad condition, and mix it with that
in good condition, making the whole of
inferior quality, which lias a very strong
tendency to lower prices.
- W. B. and Jas. Hamilton made the
following statement, in substance, to me,,
at my request, on Saturday, Mach 8,
1873: - -- , - '
.-. The amount of wheat stored by us the
past season was 55,074 bushels, at our
warehouses in Corvallis. The amount
weighed out does not exceed the amount
weighed in, so there is no increased
They have never received one cent for
storing, buying, sacking and delivering
on board the river boats, except 5 cents
per bushel for storing. The cost of
their warehouse and wharf was $7,000.
This , building will hold about 25,000
bushels.. The average price paid for
wheat at Corvallis this season has been
about 65 cents per bushel. "
They (the Haniiltons) bought for Corn
stock & Co.," and this company bought
for Hewett, Wilson & Co., of Portland,
who are agents for a heavy English com
pany, the principal shippers from Ore-,
gon. - Comstock & Co. ,were paid some
thing for buying wheat, and they gave
us a part of what they got. : That is,
they paid us-the 5 cents per bushel storage-.
Oomstock & Co. made a strong
effort to keep the price of wheat down,
so that they could afford to buy.
Hewett, Wilson & Co. gave us orders
to send the wheat down by Holladay's
boats, and .not by the opposition line.
If we were the agents for -the farmers,
intead of being the agents for the buyers,
we could do some better for them ; or, if.
the wheat was under our control, we
might, at times, get better prices.
Mr. Hyland says he stored 15,000-bush-els,
and thinks there is an increase in
the weight of wheat from the time it is
weighed in at harvest until it is weighed
out m February or March. ; . Comstock
& Co. got 5 cents for buying. .-1 bought
for them, and got nothing for buying.
'- Major Bruce thinks there is an increas
ed weight of 7 per cent, or more, whioh
will considerably more than balance the
wastage. - Mr. Holman, who stored
wheat at Buena Vista, says there, is an
increased weight over ' the wastage of
some 5 per cent., or 50 bushels on the
1,000. It is the generally received opin-"
ion, as far as I know, through the Wil
lamette valley, that wheat .weighed at
harvest will more than hold out,. - if put
on board ship in January or February.'.
It is stated by some as high as 10 per
cent., or 100 bushels on every 1,000. I
find no fault with the Hamiltons. -, I
assume they state the truth." They
are high-minded, honorable men. The
fact that they find no increased weight
goca to show that they have been, or i
IntAnded to .-be. ' very." liberal With- the
farmers in the matter of weight, and of
- taking wheat nnfit for to be Stored. ,
. T am well satisfied, and the evidence
I .have" presented goes to show, that there
' is- considerable' increased weight-. If
.; wheat is in good condition -when- weigh-:
-ea into tne warehouse, at harvest time,
it will weikh' out in January, or later.
'. with an increase of t per cent.; orj at
at any rate, it Is as good as 5 cents per
Dusnei to tne warenou-semen. xaen
- Comstock & Co were paid, say 5 cents
per bushel for buying, and the price of
ireignt to fortlaua ironi uorvams is,
and will continue to he reduced, if we
manage, wisely, say 1 cents per bushel.
-;The unnecessary expenses that kept the
' price of wheat' down this' year are as

equals 92) cents. But, says the ware
housemen, the increased weight will not
increase the price, dud tne quantity.
Very well, we can pay the Hamiltons
with the increased weight, and take the
5 cents storage ourselves. . . Five cents is
as good to us, whether it comes from the
increased weight or from storage.
With, prudent management we may
just as well have 92 cents per bushel
as to take 75, and add nothing to the
price paid by the shippers. , I am inclin
ed to believe that every encouragement
should be given to the opposition! ine of
boits, for they have put freight down.- ;
- our surplus products must te put la
the very best condition, before they are"
delivered to the warehouseman or offer-
-ed for sale. - This being done, we may
employ an agent to receive, store, and
sell our wheat, paying him,' he being
. tne owner oi tae warehouses) o cents per
. bushel for his services. - His , business
will then be to get us the highest price
. instead "of the lowest, as heretofore : or.
we may insist that there should De no
discrimination against wheat on the
wharf. So that the farmer can put his
grain on Doara a steam Doat at the same
price as the mearchant can his bacon. -
The farmer has been, and is, charged
5 cents per bushel, or $5 for 100 bushels
of three tons, while the merchant is
charged less than one half this amount
for his bacon. . .- .
I am credibly informed that the oppo-.
sition freighting company are making
arrangements to establish wharves for
their boats to land and take freight at
all the principal points along the riyer,
and make these wharves free to all treiahtl
Hurrah ! for the opposition, I say. If
there is not some-arrangement of this'
1. 1 1 ll . ai. . , . . jm
kiwi uv me opposition, men uie city oi
uorvaiiis nad oetter see to it that there
is no discrimination against the farmer's
freight. For if the farmer will continue
to patronize this town, while this dis
crimination exists here against him-, he
ought to remain in the future, as he has
been in the past, the menial slave of the
middle-man. - If a wharf be established
here upon the basis of equal rights, the
farmer can sack and store his surplus
grain in any part of the city and deliver
it on board the river boats, when sold,
at any time during the winter. This
will insure him the increased weight.
Many of the farmers own houses and
lots here already, and many more would,
like to own them here. A small granary
could and would be built by the farmer
on his lot here, and hi3 grain put. into
it and kept safely until it is sold.
This course will greatly benefit the j

pi-uuucer, mo vuusuiuer, auu tue iHLy.
It will benefit the producer, tor it will
insure him just what his grain is worth
at the time it is. sold, unmixed with
other grain. It will benefit the com-
sumer, for it will enable him to get his .
bread-stuu and chicken feed of the pro
ducer, at any time, ,at just what it is
woith at the time he buys it, which has
not been the case under the old system.
It will benefit the city, for it will bring
people and property here, and build
houses, barns; and granaries, which will
go elsewhere if this system, of discrimi
nation is persisted in.
. The third plan for storing wheat, and
the one to which I think most farmers
are looking, is to, form a joint stock com
pany under the corporation laws of the
State, and build warehouses at all con
venient points along the river.. The
shares of the company should be put at
$25, so as to bring a share entirely with
in the means of every farmer. , Twenty
five dollars is the storage price of 500
tushels of wheat. Allow every farmer
io uuse one, snare lor every 600 bushels
of grain he expects to put into the house.
This plan of shares will prevent monnn.
olies, and bring the rights and : interests
of the stockholders upon a basis of
equality.' i. - - -.. . .
