I am a producer j of vegetables

in favor of a public market.
It is, almost impossible for us
to compete with commission

for any old, price. I ; '.

attorney. IB the whole business I
want to know it so as to be able
t0 plan accordingly.
-iIn most states, you know, sen
tences are handed out by a man
called a "judge," his duty being
to judge which lawyer makes the
best speech or has the best politi
cal standing, and decide the case
accordingly. But evidently it is
different in Oregon, as in the long
list of culprits who have not been
properly or lawfully sentenced I
see no mention of , a presiding
judge, . . ,
, Whoever had the responsibility
of sentencing them was evidently
convinced, ot their guilt, for they
were convicted; but he got .weak
knepd : when it came to imposing
the penalty,, flouted the law and
refused to Impose the jail sentence
which is stipulated as a part of
the minimum .lawful penalty.
.. So. it seems that Mr. Williams
la a good prosecutor but a punk
magistrate assuming that he
acted in both capacities, since the
chings he is being cussed about
seems to be the failure to impose
adequate and lawful penalties.
If there is any object whatever
in publishing any of this stuff in
the newspapers, it is that the pub
lic may have a chance to judge
the facts if any. This being the
ease, it might h,elp fl trite .a bit if
all of the facts were given, instead
of only part of them. .

The action of the state emerg

their harvest, sets a good preced
ent. This action may not be

the penitentiary plant will be able
to use the product from a greatly
increased acreage perhaps twice
the acreage of flax of this year.
This may happen for the 1127
crop. In that case, it is conceiv
able that lhe action of the emerg
ency board may be needed again
jnext year, for" twice the acreaga:
of flax of this year would take a
pile of money to pay the farmers.
! j s ' ,
j With the possibility of the two"
linen mills in Salem running two
shifts, it will take 5,000 acres of
flax to keep them supplied with
fiber. "With. three" shifts, it will
take 7500 acres. The acreage
for this year is about 2500. Can
yotr think of any other 250 Ores
of land in Oregon, or anymore
elie, furnishing the basis for such
an industry? Indeed you cannot.
Whenever the two Salem linen
mills can spare, enough yarn from
flax fiber, of the proper lea or
fineness, Salem will have a Diemel
specialty plant, for making linen
mesh underwear and. bath and
hospital towels, employing 1600
people. And this is possible, with
