Discussed At
Noon Luncheon
That there has been little jus
tice exercised In tbe Increase In
freight rates, was the statement
of C. I. Lewis, assistant general
manager of the Oregon Orcwera
association, when speaking this
noon before the members ot the
Commercial club.
"We are living In an agricul
tural community, a community
which depends on the success ot
our agricultural Industry, and
3000 miles away from our mar
kets. The freight question enters
In in this way:
"Suppose you have some land
which produces 300u boxes of ap
ples to tbe acre. Your freight rate
Is 97 cents a box. amounting to
six per cent on i :. eneugn to
pay the interest on your land.
"Take prunes. Tbere are 10,
000 acres of prunes n this vicin
ity. The freight Is $1.66 a hund
red pounds, not Including switch
ing charges. Prunes are worth
this year two cents a pound. What
are you going ts oo when yuur
freight rate is equal to your prico
received ?"
Mr. Lewis cited the Instance
of California oranges and lem
ons, stating that the freight price
on lemons from that state to New
York was equal to tbe selling
price of Italian lemons on ths
same market.
Prink Deckabach. previous to
tbe speech of Mr. Lewis talked on
the necessity of doing something
for tbe railroads.
