LAItOIt AND CAPITAL.
Our JtoMi'burir Oorrvitpondent
'llltlllll4-M II U UlttCIIMMioll of
TIiIn V-ry In tr routing Topic.
The great thinker of the age,
Loo XIII, who lovei to be called
the ijontiir of the workingnian,
writcH: "The nad niintake that is
made in to poHttettH onenelf of the
idea that claw is liOHtile to clatss;
that rich and poor are intended by
nature to live at war with" one an
other. So irrational and so fake
Ih this view that the exact con
trary is the truth. One requires
the other capital can not do with
out labor, nor labor without cap
ital. Mutual agreements result in
pleasantness and good order, per
petual conflict necessarily produces
confusion and outrage. The inter
ests of capital and labor are inter
twined and interdependent. One
draws its power and life from the
other, the one perishes with the
other." The fruitful ness of capital,
the grandeur and the strength of
the nation, are nnaeo wiwi moor
and rise and fall with social con
ditions. Intelligence, bodily vigor,'
contentment of heart add a hun
dredfold to the productivuess of
capital, which at the same time is
put to its highest use and serves
best its divine purpose when it is
employed as to lift fellowmen up
ward in the scale of mental and
social life. Labor is in absolute
need of the co-operation of capital.
For what purpose is your muscular
strength unless capital is nigli to
reward it? Without capital, be
there millions of willing working-
men, factory doors remain closed,
lields are untitled, mines hold their
treasures in concealment, no ships
nlow on the seas, no railroads span
continents. Without capital labor is
H latent unproductive energy. Why,
today are there among us legions
of unemployed? Because capital
hides away from us. It is an easy
matter in club rooms and in public
streets to discuss capital and its
obligations and to mark out the
channels through which it should
flow in order to reach our own
hands. As a matter of fact, cap
ital emerges into public light, or
hides itself in vaults, at its own
good pleasure. It is timid of its
life, make it insecure, it wm snun
vou. and leave you to beat the air
with idle arms. The laws oi tne
financial world are as inflexible as
those of the four seasons ot the
vpar: the state or the country in
which, through mob riots or oppres-
iv legislature enactments, prop-
in endangered or made unpro
ductive will surely be abandoned
to their owu sterile resources, lne
outcry against capital is occasional
ly ludicrous, if it were not custress-
rnuin its possible consequences.
"We will not," said a man, "toil to
nnv interest to foreigners holding
bonds and stocks of American in
dustries and railroads." Very well;
but these foreigners will not send
over their money to build up their
f,.f.tnries. and construct your rail
roads, in which case you will pay to
no interest, but neither win
you earn bread for yourselves.
What is needed in all controversies,
is common sense, in the presence
of which a hundred wild theories
mlt. .wav and a hundred compli
cations find quick solution. This
is an age of reason, as distinguisnea
from previous ages of semi-barbarism
and brute force. Why can
not nations as well as individuals
cease putting their pride in their
power to murder men and arbitrate
their differences? And why can
not employes and employers
equally avoid discord by peaceful
arbitration, avoiding strikes as the
euro of all evils. .
Shipment ot Fruit.
The Oregon Fruit & Produce Co.
Bold and Bhipped east yesterday
(Saturday) a carload of dried prunes
and raspberries and at very good
figures, everything considered. The
shipment consisted of 4,461 pounds
of raspberries at 15 cents per
pound; 11,970 pounds of Italian
prunes, grade 60-70, at 3 8-4 cents,
and the following amounts and
grades of French prunes: 2421
pounds 50-60 at 4 J cents; 591
pounds 60-70 at 4 cents; 3,233
pounds 70-80 at 3j cents; 180
pounds of 80-90 at 3 cents; 5,40
pounds of 90-100 at 2J cents; 1,078
pounds of 100-120 at 2 cents.
When prunes are so small that it
takes 100 to 120 to make a ponnd
they are not worth evoporating. as
it costs as much to handle them as
larger ones, and the result does
not pay. Salem Statesman.
FREIGHT KATU8 ON FRUIT.
Oregon Agriculturalist: During
the season just closed more green
fruit was shipped out of Ofrgon
than during any present year.
The returns are all in except a few
instances where claims lor over
charges of freight against the rail
roads are in process of adjustment.
Some shippers are satisfied with
the returns, while others barely
came out whole. In general imay
be stated that the average net price
to growers, after all picking and
packing charges were deducted, was
unsatisfactory. There were many
reasons for this. Poor fruit and
poor packing were important el
ements in keeping down the price,
but even the good quality and well
packed fruit did not, as a rule,
bring a sufficient high price to pay
the grower a reasonable profit.
There is a certain risk in shipping
green fruit east, and all fruit grow
ers cannot assume it. The large
growerB has the advantage over the
small, because that portion of the
fruit intended to be shipped east in
the green state can be directed to
several markets, and the chances
are gocd that the average price will
at least return a small profit. J He
then has his dried fruit tck fall
The small growers, however, or
the one just developing the busi
ness, cannot afford to take any
risks, and his green fruit ship
ments should be confined to a
small amount, and in co-operation
with his neighbors, more as an ex
periment, and as a means of becom
ing acquainted with the business,
so that In the future, when hisor
chards are increased, and his , fruit
more abundant, he will know the
details, and be able to decide what
Of one thing we are convinced.
The present freight rates on fruit
from Oregon to eastern points are
too high. We are sure all shippers
of fruit, either green or dried, will
agree with us on that point At
the present rates, and based on
prices obtained in the east this
year on green fruit, the railroad
receive more than one-half the gross
value of the fruit in the eastern
market. The knowledge of this
makes shippers very cautious, and
a continuance of the present rates
will tend to limit shipments of
green fruit, and increase shipments
of dried. This will work a direct
injury to the railroads, because as
the green fruit shipments decrease,
and dried fruit shipments increase,
the tonnage moved will decrease in
proportion. A car of dried fruit
represents 2 or 3 cars of green,
and railroads would prefer to haul
three cars at of a cent per pound,
than one car at 1 cent It is there
fore to their interest to make such
rates as will tend to increase ship
ments of green fruit Particularly
bo is this the case in shipping goods
from this coast, because more goods
come from the east to this coast
than . vice versa, and railroads
would or should prefer to haul
Highest of all to Leavening Power Latest U. S. Gov't Report
back the cars loaded at a reasonable
price, than emDty for nothing.
The railroads could reduce rates
on fruit a cent per pound, and
green fruit shipments would be so
greatly increased that the profits of
the railroads would be larger than
at present, and the tonnage moved
eastward greatly increased, thus
making use of many cars now
The reduction would do much
for the state It would give an
impetus to the fruit industry of Or
egon which would soon place us in
the front rank of fruit producing
states. It would greatly help many
growers who now find it difficult
to make both ends meet. It would
be a popular move, and stop many
a growl against the railroads by
the mass of people who depend up
on reasonable rates to make their
business return them a living.
Death of Henry Crow.
The Puyallup Citizen of October
25th, contains the appended notice
of the death of Mr. Henry Crow, a
former resident of this city. Mr.

Addition and were comparatively
comfortable until the illness of Mr.
Crow, since which time the con-
stant earn and attention of the
