Few people have ever been caught

Can it be possible that an Ore
gon cannery company can prevent
a cannery company from another
state from entering this field? If
so, it is high time the people of
the Willamette valley encouraged
the establishment of independent
canneries. There is money in fruit
raising, and there is more money in
the industry if the fruit-raisers of
the Willamette valley, are not solely
dependent upon a trust for a mar
ket for their product It U not a
sign of progress wnen a trust can
dictate where canneries shall be lo
cated in this valley, and arbitrarily
fix the price of fruit at such a low
figure that there is an enormous
profit for it and discouragement for
the gtowers. The Willamette val
ley can raise the finest fruit in the
world, and ii the people would take
the proper ateps and financially
back independent canneries, the
valley would fairly boom. It is cer
tainly up to the people. They can,
if they become a little active, throt
tle the trust and make this a more
inviting field to homeseekers.

The forest question involves the
two great questions ot wood and
water. Wood is a prime necessity.
Our population is increasing rapid
ly, while our wood supply is more
rapidly diminishing. We are con
suming wood three or four times as
fast as our forests are producing it.
Unless radical changes are soon
made in American methods of for
estry, a wood famine will assuredly
eusue. Forest cover on monatala
and hilltops is indispensibleinhold
ing back rain water, and maintain
ing equable stream flow. Denuded
hillsides mean an alteration of de
structive floods and droughts.
Friends of the forest should exert
themselves and assist in securing the
needed legislation for the preserva
tion of our forests. The people must
be aroused and informed, and must
make their will known to their rep
resentatives. United, earnest effort
will secure this legislation. The
