FACTS BROUGHT OUT
DEMAND FOR CONTINUED
HIGH RATES TRACED DOWN
PORTLAND, 'Nov, if. (AP)
Suspension of the low railway
freight rate on Imported walnuts
In the shell from north Pacific
coast ports to Mississippi, valley
points, which the Interstate com
merce commission proposed to put
into effect 1 NoTember 1, was
brought about not only by the pro
tests of the North Pacific Nut
Growers corporation of Dundee.
Ore., but : also through the pro-)
tests of seven California firms, the
governor of California, the Los
Angeles county farm bureau and
the Los Angeles chamber of com-
merce. . . ':
This fact was learned by Erwln
A. Taft, manager of the foreign
trade department of the Portland
chamber of commerce, who stu
died the matter when the Oregon
nut growers protested and - de
cided that the proposed rates
only effect would have been to
give Portland a chance to procure
for its docks and terminals a sub
stantial portion of the import wal
nut tonnage mow coming into the
United States through California
ports. Tao foreign trade depart
ment asserted that the now rate
would not affect the market for
walnuts, and therefore would not
affect the Oregon growers.
The present rate is $1.75 per
100 pounds for transporting wal
nuts in shells from any port to
the Mississippi valley. The pro
posed new . rate, now suspended
until June 1, 18 J 8. was to be
$1.25 per 100 pounds from north
Pacific coast shorts only.
A hearing on the matter ha
been set for 10 a. m November
25, at San Francisco.
