SIMULTANEOUS action of all heavy tonnage producing in
dustries of the Pacific coast in a drive to obtain lower
freight rates has been concentrated in a gigantic "Save
the West" movement, officials of these industries say.
Producers of fresh fruits and vecretahlps declare tbov nr
fighting to save the industries from destruction and the only
hope is reduction of the present rail rate. Amendments to the
transportation act of 1020. which caused the last raise of o3 1-3
per cent in freight rates, will be the first objective. "
The assailed act guarantees a net annual earning of 6 per
cent upon the value of combined railroad properties in the
C. C. Teague, president of the California Fruit Growers
Exchange, says that by this act the interstate commerce com
mission is charged with fixing rates on the shippers of the Unit
ed States which will produce an earning on billions of dollars
of worthless property railroads which, he asserts, should never
have been built will be kept out of the receiver's hands through
tne b per cent they obtain on their holdings. At the same time
the growers of California organized to battle the legislation, the
growers of the northwest, including Oregon, Washington and
Idaho, and the producers of Arizona and Texas, were starting
similar campaigns. These actions have led to a concerted
battle for lower rates.
That citrus groves are being torn out in Southern California
t-ecause each crop of fruit shipped to eastern markets under
the present rail rates means a dead loss to the growers, is the

ine proaucers reiusing to snip at a total loss, according to U. C. I " 1,1 neicner. because of subsidies, to the
oois, secretary ot tne lakima Commercial Club.
That the vegetable acreage of California will decrease 50
per cent this season because stilling railroad rates have made
it impossible for growers to operate except at a loss, is the as
Jiertion of Thomas O'Neill, president of the California Vegetable
Potato and onion growers of Oregon, Washington, Idaho and
California recently notified all railroad Systems that they were
facing bankruptcy because of the rates now in effect.
fruit and truck growers in Texas will not be able to ship
this year's crop because freight charges exceed the value of the
products, declares Ben E. Keith, of the International Apple
Shippers Association and the Western Fruit Jobbers' Associa
- "Three thousand cars of vegetables have gone to waste in
the Rio Grande Valley this year because they could not be ship
ped at existing rates," asserts U. S. Pawkett'of the Rio Grande
Valley Growers Association.
When the freight rate on a product exceeds the value of that
product, some times many times over, it is time for the producer
to take notice. There are faults in our transportation system
and these faults are not all in one place. One weak spot which
is seldom dwelt on either by railroad managers or union labor
officials is the use of expensive coai when the northwest has
latent hydro electric power awaiting developments.

WATER'S WARMING UP.
N Eastern Oregon sunrise is thus described by a writer in
the feunday Oregonian:
FJaming out of the east, the winged heralds of the dawn were plant
ing their banners on distant hill and mountain top! The shadows of the night
with lances broken and trailing in ilie somber mrsts. were scattering before the
cohorts of the sun. Ime shafts of light, now gold, now purple, now amethyst,
touched with magic wand the brow n hills, and lo! they were temples of glory,
where fine might bow down and worship! Soon appeared the upper rim of the
fun. The river became a sheet of gold, flowing out from the portals of the
morning a river of life that .injured from the everlasting gates of glory! The
ciear. fresh air became warmer. From campfire and chimney-top arose
spirals of incense that gave grateful thanks for peace and plenty. Forgotten
was all save the glories of the noun t he awakening of sweot-voicerl day!
Fine work. A man who appreciates our sun rise so much!
should be invited to stay for breakfast.
Having gotten the separate peace treaty through the senate
the administration now seems to want it held up indefinitely in
the house. It is a trifle hard to keep up with our present day
The East Oregonian knows of one mother who was enter
tained so much by her children yesterday that before the day
was finished she wished it was an "ordinary day."
