At lontiertaat Testk
Walla Walla Jgwofi. &TXL
Itis the custom ofDrtland
gram dealers to discriminate against
Walla Walla raised wheat, and in
favor of wheat raised in the Wil
lamette valley, commonly desig
nated as "valley wheat." This
discrimination operates to the dis
advantage of the wheat raisers of
eastern Washington. Another
trick is to pick out an extra lot ol
Walla Walla wheat, and ship it
under the name of "valley." Not
many years ago Walla Walla flour
was quoted in the Portland and
San Francisco markets at a dollar
or more a barrel below the price
asked and paid for valley flour,
and it was a drug in the market, at
that. Through the efforts of our
millers this discrimination was over
come, and Walla Walla flour now
ranks in the San Francisco market
with the best Oregon, and is much
preferred by bakers, as it is strong
er, and will yield more bread to
the barrel of flour. A Portland
miller recently admitted that he
could get more pounds of flour
from a bushel of Walla Walla
wheat than from a bushel of valley
wheat, the only objection being
that it was a trifle higher colored.
The difference in color arises from
the fact that alley farmers raise
chiefly white winter wheat, which
is a large, plump, white variety,
while eastern Washington growers
raise hardly anything but "little
club," which is a highly colored
grain. An attempt is being made
by one of our citizens to obtain
the exact rating of Walla Walla
wheat in the markets of the world.
Miles C. Moore has loaded the
American ship Alice D. Cooper,
with a full cargo of Walla Walla
wheat, and she has sailed from As
toria for Liverpool. Special care
was taken in loading the Alice D.
Cooper that no shriveled, smutty,
or inferior grain formed a part of
her cargo. This shipment by Mr.
Moore is thus noticed by the San
Franqisco Commercial Herald:
UB3' notice elsewhere it will be
seen that a full cargo of Walla
Walla whpat has recently been
shipped from Astoria by the ship
Alice H. Cooper, carrying 39,6-18
centals, said to be of superior qual
ity. Our correspondent says of
this carge: 'About one-fifth is
equal to the average in this valley.
The remainder is excellent, equal
to valley in color, etc., only smaller
size grain. The valley wheat now
being shipped is below the average,
and -will unUoubtedlv cause arbi
tration.'" Walla Walla grain
.raisers and dealers do not fear the
Tesult of Mr. Moore's experiment.
