A prominent fruit grower sa'd
yesterday that the fruit prospect
at this season were never better.
The fruit trees were never before
so nearly dormant at this date.
So the blossoms are likely to
come on after danger of frost has
passed. A bumper fruit crop all
down the line will help this city
and section wonderfully. Oh.
yes; with the addition of good
prices for the fruit.

shows the close scrutiny given to the proposition .by Mr,
Weeks, and his careful conservation of every right of the
United States in the property. He calls the attention of Con
gress impartially to the benefits that would accrue to the
government through the acceptance of the Ford offer, as
well as the huge losses that the government must write of
if the nitrate plants are sold at the Ford figure. Whatever
may be the final disposition of the matter, the people may

Congressman Bourke Cockran
finds a source of worry in the
five-power naval treaty because
it violates the constitution. Every
one should have ben prepared
for this. The Cockran resolution
calls our attention to paragraph
13, section 8, article 1:
"The congress shall have
power ' to provide
and maintain a navy."
This tower is unqualified: it
can neither be added to nor sub
traded from. No treaty can de
prive congress of us powers
ranted by the constitution. It
follows that after the five-power
treaty were ratilied. congress
could ignore it at any time and
make the navy as big as it
pleased. Such obviously is Mr.
Cockran's argument.
The argument is sound, const!
tutionaliy speaking. The su
preme court has decided that an
act of congress subsequent to the
ratification of a treaty overrides
the treaty in case congress legis
lates on a subject placed by the
constitution within its jurisdic
tion. But while congress would
have the power to annul this na-

The public service commission
yesterday issued an order denying
temporarily, pending further in
vestigation, an application of the
Lakevlew-Pine Creek Electric
company for authority to Increase
Its rates.
The company has Its principal
offices at Lakoview and furnishes
telephone service to Lakeview and
Lake county.
A paragraph of the order deal
ing with revenues says:
"The commission believes that
this utility's revenue Is not suffi
cient to produce such a return up
on the investment as is generally
considered adequate, but when
authority for a rate adjustment ia
requested, revenue and expense
should not be the only elemtns
considered. Due consideration
must be accorded general service
conditions and tin subscriber
ability to pay. otherwise the rate
might easily result in decreasing
the operating revenue. It is a
natural assumption that a Utility
will endeavor to make such fi
nancial showing as will Justify an
Increase In rates, but w-e roust In

pany's patrons. emphatically
