Mrs. V esty E lizabeth Raney, an
old pioneer of E stacada, passed to
her rew ard a t the home of her
daughter, Mrs. W alter Dean, at
Stanley* Station,, last Sunday a f te r ­
noon a t 3 :40.
Mrs. Raney was well and favor­
ably known here, having spent the
m ajor portion of h er life in this vi­
cinity., and is m ourned by a wide
circle of friends.
Mrs. Raney was born at F ay ette­
ville, Ark., Oct. 27, 1847 and de­
parted this life Ja n u a ry 3, 1926.
A t the age of about 13, she
crossed the plains w ith her parents
and settled in E stacada. This was
in the year 1861.
In 1867 she was united in m arrage
to Samuel H. Raney, who passed
aw ay over 17 year ago. To this
union were born eight children all
of whom survive her. They are
Benj. M. Raney, H arley S. Raney
and George Raney, of P ortland;
Charles Raney, of Gresham, and
W illiam B. Raney, of Hood River;
Mrs. Burd Baeehmer, of Manning,
N orth Dakota, Mrs. Leona G utt-
ridge, of Springw ater and Mrs.
L ena Dean of Stanley
They were all present a t the bed­
side when she passed away, except
Mrs. Baeehm er and William Raney.
A bout five years ago Mrs. Raney
suffered from a stroke of paralysis

Following the vigorous b rief on
freig h t rates filed in the late fall
with the In tersta te Commerce Com­
mission by the N ational Grange,
the la tte r organization prepared a
com prehensive supplem entary brief
and presented it before the In te r­
sta te Commerce Commission during
its hearing on the fre ig h t rate ques­
tion recently held a t Kansas City.
The G range is making an active
fig h t in behalf of the farm ers,
whose very existence is at stake ¡À
the present freight rate discussion.
The G range takes the unassail­
able position th a t there m ust be no
horizontal increase in the present
fre ig h t rate stru ctu re until its in­
equalities have been straightened
out and the farm er put on a fair
basis with other large shippers. No
one has attem pted to dispute the a r ­
ray of facts contained in the
G range brief, which proved th a t
there is a discrepancy in freight
rate s of approxim ately 200 per
cent against the fa rm e r’s income
and th a t agriculture as a whole is
paying alm ost $3.50 fo r every ton
of freig h t moved, while the m anu­
fa c tu re r is paying scarcely more
than $2.50 fo r like service. I t is
the G range contention th a t any
m ovement tow ards a horizontal
boost in freight rates will be whol­
ly unjust to agriculture if it pro­
ceeds from present basis which is
so relatively unfair.
