SAY FREE PORTS
OF SWEDEN HELP
TO ALL TRADERS
Stockholm, Dec. 29. How
American exporters can ship
transit merchandise to Sweden
and land and store It there with
out worrying about tariff regula
tions, is explained in recent re
ports issued by the three free ports
of Stockholm, Malmoe and Gothen
burg. Sweden is Interested in the de
velopment of her free ports, all re
cently opened wtlh the object of
facilitating transit trade from the
west to the Baltic states and Rus
sia by enabling foreign exporters
to place in the free ports consign
ments of gods intended for' the
Swedish and Baltic markets under
conditions of absolute safety.
There are no import duties, and
the storage rates are so low, com
pared to American charges, that
It is said an American shipper can
send his goods to Malmoe, for ex
ample, resell them from that place
in smaller parcels out of -stock,
and then return the unsold con
signments to America without
having incurred any loss because
of ocean freight charges. There
Is also the added7 advantage of
having been able to supply his
buyers with the least possible de
Statistical returns show that
during the past year the free port
at Stockholm earned the interest
on the investment and even a
ellgut surplus. The free port of
Gothenburg, during less than two
months, has been used by 230
ships, chiefly American and Dutch
and the traffic is now growing so
that the Gothenburg bank has
opened a special branch office
within the port. Industrial plants
will be erected within the confines
'if this port to manufacture prod
ucts from goods temporarily in
korage, and such manufactures
'nay be shipped out without hav-
ng incurred any SwedlBh tariff
i-harges on the imported material.

HANGE IN FRUIT
LAWS ARE SOUGHT
'At a recent meeting of the state
.iBi'd of horticulture, held in
irtland, among other things cen
tered was a changing of the
Ipplng point and fruit inspection
w, by which it can be made more
iixlble and workable, according
( Charles A. Park, president of
e board. The board would like a
.ff changes In order that the law
,iy be carried out more conven
'dly. In carrying out the intent for
ich the law was enacted, the
Vgon state horticultural beard
i t fall entered into an agree
t nt with the bureau of markets,
Serai department, for coopera
te work in shipping point inspec
This means that any shipper of
fruits or vegetables who wishes to
have the qualtly or grade of his
product officially determined, may
have the car Inspected at shipping
point, receive a certificate as to
exact conditions of fruits or vege
tables in the car, and feel assured
that when it arrives at its desti
nation, this certificate will be
prima facie evidence as to grad
ing .and quality of fruit, in any
federal court in the United States.
This law was in partial operation
this past fall, Mr. Park said.
The effect of shipping point In
spection Is to standardize the pack
of fruit and vegetables, so that a
box of apples, for instance, coming
from the northwest will be exact
ly alike In quality, whether com
ing from Oregon, Washington or
The law to some extent makes
it almost necessary for growers
and shippers to put up fruit and
vegetables in a manner acceptable
to the customer, as the customer
in the long run is the Judge as to
quality and worth of fruit ship
ments from the northwest.
