PRESIDENT DEEPiS IT
UNWISE TO PASS ON
i EONUS MEASURE NOW
Recent Decision of Northwest
Millers and Grain Dealers
Meets With Opposition.
SUITS WILL BE INSTITUTED
TO PROVE VALIDITY OF LAW
Umatilla County Farm Bureau
Members Will Force Grain
Dealers to Obey Measure.
Vigorous protest of the recent deci
sion of the Northwest Millers and
Grain Dealers Association to disregard
the Oregon and Washington grain dis
count laws was made yesterday at'a
meeting of Umatilla county Farm Bur
eau members who declared" that ' If
necessary, suits will be instituted to
test the validity of the low and thus
force the grain dealers to obey It..
The legislation passed fa the Ore
gon legislative sessions of 1911 known
as the Ritner bill and passed also In
Washington, provides that there shall
be no discount on 58 pound wfteat, but
that for each pound above 58 pounds,"
.8 of one per cent premium ahall bo
paid. For each pound or fraction of
a pound below 58 pounds, therefihall
be a discount of not to exceed of
one percent, and on poorer grades the
discount is slightly larger. During the
war, differentials were three cent a
bushel so that 60 pound wheat was the
standard for each grade oefore the
three cent discount was made. Farm
ers agree that this was fair when
wheat sold for more than $3 a bushel
hut that with wheat at $1 a bushel th
differential is two great on the old
basis, which the Northwest Millers and '
Grain Dealers seek .to retain desplto
the new legislation. '
Deny Conflict ' r V"''' ' ' i fe
Wheat farmers of this county deny
that the state discount laws conflict
with federal grain standards made In
19 IS by the U. S. Grain Corporation.
They will take further steps toward ,
establishing the validity-of the dis
count laws at a meeting on Saturday'
This validity is upheld by Senator
Miles Poindexter, in the followingwiro
sent to S. R. Thompson, president of
the Farm Bureau from the Walla Wal- .
la Commercial Association: '
"Replying to your telegram regard
ing a supposed conflict between stute
grain statutes and Federal Grain
Standards: Federal Grain Standards
Act of 1918 gave authority to the sec
retary of agriculture to fix standards;

retary that the Federal Regulations
and State statutes are identical with ,
I the exception that state statutes go -i
further and fix discounts as well as

I flict of law or regulation involved.
! During the war und for some-months

ner as the state statutes now fix them,
hut the rrrain corporation has been
