This is the matter that promi

have been working on as the only
salvation for the fruit industry of
the Pacific coast. Now that it
has come, some of the figures on
what it means are of interest.
Big Saving Certain.
The old ret" for apples whs
$l.ff, per 10 0 pounds, or prac
tically S3 ents a box. The new
rate reduces this cost by 10 cents
oer inn pounds, or x cents a box.
The salable apple crop of the
nnorthwest f r 1!21 is estimated
at 40,000 ears, with "f.tt boxes to
the car, 30,240,000 boxes in all.
The freight reduction of only s
cents a box means $2.4 19,2 Mi
more profit to the northwest for
this one crop.
It might not. all come exactly
in that form, however. The grow
er need not expect to have thai
much money handed him on a
golden platter, by the railroads or
by the consumers. But part of i'

Professor C. I. Lewis, assistant
pen ral manager of the Oregon
Growers Cooperative association,
has Uenn one of the leaders ")
the movement to secure a reduc
tion of rates. Interviewed late
last night on the Chicago dispatch
announcing the reduction, he ou!
lined some of the above fact", f'd
said further that while it was nt
quite all they had asked f'r. it
was a decided help ror th" north
west fruit grower. He holds that
a still further reduction, however,
will be the only sure way to make
the apple, crop profitable enough
to keep ih orchards going.
"The estimate of 20 per cent
less than in 192". tor the cost t

Lewis. "This is exclusive of this
freight reduction. Last year's
crop was produced at a loss. 'i't's

the 1921 market, counting
lower cost of production and the
lower cost of transportation ; ;i" I
the consumer get his fruit at a
much lower price, and the grow

move in the right dinrtion."

effort on the part of Mayor George

bers of the council declared that
they felt they were voicing, the

in 'Portland. It is the Intention
of; the council to cooperate with, "
the city council of Portland In
fighting the new rate schedule. ;
At a previous meeting of the
council Alderman George Wender

posed to the removal of the street
car tracks on Summer street,
where new paving is about to be
put down. The ordinance was .
repdy for the third reading last
night but failed to pass after a
general discussion regarding the
obligation of the council In allow- :
ing the company to remove its .
tracks when the city was ready
to" pave the street.

It appears a former council
agreed with the street car com- -pany
to allow it to take the tracks
up;should the city decide to pave .

council last night contended that
the obligation was still binding

Attorney Robin Day, acting on (
behalf of the railway company,
spoke at some length, affirming
that should the ordinance Intro
duced by Wenderoth pass it would
be illegal. He stated the four
blocks in question did not pay
on; an average of more than 75 :
cents a day, and that it would
necessitate an expenditure of
about 18000 to pay its share ot "

permission for the removal of
th tracks was finally given
through a majority vole, though
