That the apple market Is in far bet
ter shape than outside appearances in
dicate. Is the assertion of Wilmer Sieg,
district manager of the Oregon di
vision of the North Pacific Fruit Dis
tributors. "We are getting out of the Portland
office," says Mr. Sieg, "about 10 to 15
cars a day at fairly good prices, bet
ter than the big sale you report.
"There Is no trouble to get a good
many orders, where the fruit is right,
but it is unfortunately a fact that a
good many sections of the northwest
have no methods of conserving their
fruit at home and rush it to market
and. In th4s case, they have to take
what the market will give them. Those
who have been working with the dis-
, trihiitnr hvo hoan t 1 1-r tv wull o 1 1 i H
I " v" r ' - . w n '- ,
our people in this section should
learn that the best protection they can
assure to their crops is the protection
of proper warehouse facilities at local
points.
" I want to say for your information
also that the barrel market in the east
seems to be in very much stronger
condition. ' Buyers have been trying to
buy at $1 to $1.25 a barrel, but middle
western buyers have cleaned up a big
proportion of New York crop at $1.75
and this means that the balance of the
crop will probably sell even . higher.
So, don't get the idea into your head
that the present predicts the future. In
good sections, where they have good
home conservation, they have fair
prospects for the future. It is not a
hopeless case bv any means and the
prices brought back to a good many
sections are so far ahead of 1912 that
there is no comparison."

that this season's crop of garnets in

Cohen's Attorneys
Continue Fight
V. S. District Attorney Is Informed
That Once More Effort Will Be Made
to Save Lawyer "Prom Prison. :
Although the United States supreme
court yesterday declined to review the
case of Max G. Cohen, a former Port
land attorney, who is under sentence
of two years' imprisonment for sub
ornation of perjury, his attorneys have
virtually decided on one last desperate
effort to save him from prison.
The United States district attor
ney's office today received a telegram
from Solicitor General Davis, at Wash
ington, D. C, that Cohen's attorneys

Until definite action is taken by
Bailey, the solicitor general Instructs

Should the habeas corpus efforts
faiL it is said a movement to secure
Cohen's pardon on the grounds that
he is suffering from tuberculosis
might be started as a last expedient.
The supreme court has held that
habeas corpus applies to legality of
arrest- and does not lead up to a review
of testimony.
Cohen is at liberty on $15,000 bonds
put up by his wife and father-in-law.
He has been in the motion picture
business at Los Angeles, but is said
to be in New York city at present. His
case dates back to the late spring of
1912 when he advised B'sther Wood, a
witness in a white slavery case, to
perjure herself to save John Gronich,
who was on trial for transporting her
from Denver to Portland for immoral
purposes.

1 Mill to Be Enlarged.
Here's one for which a professor With the plant of the Portland
stands responsible: The French U j Woolen mills at present running every
sound (equivalent to the German U , available hour of the day and night
with the umalut mark) has no equiv- j ar,d witn every workman used that it
alent in English. To make the sound j is possiolt! to employ -around the plant,
purse the lips as though to say O, but j ordera are coming forward in greater
say E instead. The combination pro- voiume than the Institution " has been

The French and Belgian names are a-.0, J1 are Receny the. fa-

though they were accented on the last1 brick, building and this will greatly
syllable. The Austrian words are gen- j increase ine output so mar. tne oper-
erally accented on the first syllable.
In the list below will be found some
words marked nasal. To get the cor
rect sound, for Instance, in the French
word men (my), it is pronounced as
though spelled mawn, the letter n,
ators believe it will have the greatest
capacity of any mill west of the Mis-
I
slssrfppi river. A man ibaa already
been sent east to purchase additional
machinery to increase thr capacity of
the present bullaings andl new build- .
ings are now being planned by the
management.
"The outlook Is certainly optimistic,
said Mr. Thompson. j)'
Speculate With Money.
That the huge sums of money sent
by the government to . the various
banks of- the country for-crop moving
purposes is being utilized to a very
considerable extent by growers to de
feat this very purpose, is the strong f
assertion of a prominent banking of
ficial of this city. "I find,'-' he says
"that instead of this money being used
to move the crops, country banks are
loaning the funds to their customers
for the purpose of holding their crops
for stil higher prices. This naturally
is one big drawback to business. The
holding of funds means that we can
not use this money as was intended,
to move the crops quickly, and then
divert it to general business use. I
believe that farmers shpjuld at least
sell sufficient of their jjcrops to en
able them to pay their j debts to thl
country store keepers i fho- in turn
would pay the countryj:',anks. Then
the interior institution!! would repay
the city hanks and we 'jwould he able
to reloan It to businesSj-rnen who need
it. Only the steady .movement of
money is good for busin$a. Hoarding
it does not aid any one. "t; :(
General Conditions Better.
Another banking official asserted
that general business conditions were
slowly but. surely mending- "We no
tice a constant improvement in the
general situation," he j asserts, "al
though it is not quite sufficient as yet
for the general public iq see it. W-
have all the money needed to move
the crops and there will; bo no further
need of government help in this section."
