A POSSIBLE WAY OUT
Last Monday The News published, from two opposite
ends of the Pacific coast, articles telling of the advantages
of co-operative marketing. Co-operation was the theme of
the farmers' and merchants' banquet the other night. Co
operative selling is the plan of the lumber manufacturers
of the Pacific Northwest. Co-operation in marketing is the
reasonable thing, and the only economic way of marketing
Under co-operative marketing it is possible to get to
. gether products in sufficient quantity to make an attractive
offering for buyers By co-operative selling, the growers
are able to provide facilities for the handling of the product
such as the individual grower could not secure. By co-operative
selling it is possible to bring to market each day only
those things for which there is demand, and the products
that would wither and be a loss if brought otherwise, would
remain in the ground or on the vines until actually needed.
How co-operation works out is illustrated in the case
- of fruits, and some vegetables, in the operations of the
Eugene Fruit Growers' association. The manager is con
sulted freely at the planting-season, and as a result there
is no decided overplus of any product, for the farmer has
been advised when fiis neighbors have planted about as
much of a given crop as there will be a market for. During
the crop season, free use of the telephone brings to the can
nery each day just about the amount of supplies that can be
handled, either by calling upon the growers to rush in their
products, or by advising them to hold back picking for a
day or two.
Such a system applied to the vegetable supplies, would
be an advantage to grower and to consumer, for it would
mean, to the grower, a sure market for what he brought in,
and to the consumer, an assurance that he could get an ample
supplies of each vegetable in season, and always the fresh
Now how does this apply to Springfield?
Efforts were made a year or more ago to start a cannery
.. here, but the plan failed to come to a head. A cannery means
the investment of several thousand dollars. There are pro
ducts, however, which can be handled without canning. Po
tatoes notably of the vegetables; hogs and cattle either live
or dressed, many of the fruits. These could be marketed
profitably if they could be gotten together into shipments of
Would it not be worth the while of the business interests
of Springfield to establish and maintain an office for the
handling of shipments of this sort? The local market, of
course, would be the first to be supplied, and as there was
opening farther away, the products could be shipped. The
big problem, of course, would be to find what products could
be shipped to a market at a profit, and then to develop that
market by the shipping of products true to grade.
Some such plan deserves close investigation.
THE LAND GRANT DECISION.
The decision of the United States Supreme court, con
firming, under certain restrictions, the title of the Oregon &
California railroad in 2,300,000 acres of granted land, is of
particular interest to Springfield, for upon this decision, and
that of the unmerging of the Southern and Central Pacific
hangs this town's hopes hb an Interior railroad center of im
Completion of Ufa' Natron cut-off, .now In nboyntty.0 for
'threo years, has been waiting upon those decisions, and tho
qponlng of the monoy "jhurkcl ho that funds could bo ao
ourcd. One decision has boon fnvoroble; tho railroad!? pro
fess sincere bollef that their case Is good, In tho unmorglng
procoodnigs. Should tho decision bo favorable, two big ob
stacles will have been removed.
General business conditions are removing tho other ob
stacle, Tho fact that money Is available for electrifying nn
othor unit of tho l 13. & E, ami that contracts are being lot
for another 30-mllo section of the line west from Vale, Indi
cates that railroad oaniiuRS are Increasing Instead of de
creasing, and as a consequence loans are easier to nuiko.
The letting of tho contract In eastern Oregon, while It
Is over 300 miles away from Springfield, gives "encourage
ment hero also. Persons familiar with tho eastern Oregon
country say that the lino through Malheur canyon, now com
pleted, is a decidedly hard piece of railroad building, and that
the thirty miles now being let Is through comparatively
rough country. A fow miles tils way from the end or tho
proposed contract tho country opens up Into a level plain
which offers absolutely no obstacles to railroad construction.
With no clearing to do but to cut tho sage brush, and no
grading except that needed to drain the roadbed, construc
tion will be rapid. As one man said, "If they build tho 30 miles
from Riverside this year, they will reach the Cascades next."
And with the Oregon Eastern extending from the Idaho Hue to
tho Cascades, there will be added Incentive for the construc
tion of the Natron cut-off, nnd the Springfield shops.
THE NEWS' NEWS SERVICE
The service given to its readers by the Lane County Nows Is
not surpassed by that of a daily paper. We get the news, and
get it right up to the minute of printing the paper. Two news
stories In last Monday's Issue occurred after 2 o'clock, nnd
yet the paper containing this news was on the street at -1:30,
an hour or more before any otiier paper entered this territory.
In fact the paper was on the press and had a number of copies
printed when news of the land grant decision came. At once
the press was stopped, nows matter already in the forms was
condensed and the important story hurried Into print.
That Monday issue was some newsy paper, too, don't you
think. It had a three column report of the Saturday night
farmers' and merchants banquet. The most any other paper
gave was a quarter of a column. Monday's Issue had the re
port of the school clerk, in detail, so that all the patrons of tho
Springfield schools might. learn about thoir school. No other
paper printed this report. The Monday News told of the de
cision in the Perkins-City-Stark case, giving the report right
on the minute and in more completeness than did any other
paper. There were a number of other interesting features,
not published in other papers, and a page of local news that
The vote in the Eugene school election was 245 and that
in Springfield 1G5. Are we to infer that Eugene is only fifty
per cent larger than Springfield, or does it mean that tho
people of Springfield are more Interested in keeping their
schools at a high state of efficiency?
Just because contributary carelessness of an autolst
allows the town of Springfield to win a damage suit Is no
reason for allowing obstructions to be left in the street with
out warning lights. ,
