CUT UP THE BIG ORCHARDS
TIIE success attending the subdivision and sale of the
famous Snowy Butte orchard, in small tracts should
cause other large owners to do likewise, both for their
own good and the good of the valley. Such tracts as tho
Burrell orchard, consisting of 600 acres, the Bear Creek
orchard and other famous producers, while good profit
payers, would really be very much bigger profit payers
if subdivided into small tracts, each supporting a family.
While the large orchard in the Rogue River valley is a
proven dividend payer, the small orchard is still more so
and as the young groves mature, the labor problem will be
an important factor. This problem will be partially set
tied through having a family upon each tract.
Large orchards are usually ovned by non-residents
and the profits go to support one family in luxury, who
spend most of their days in other parts of the world. The
money made here is taken away. The big grove affords
wages for a number of men, and this is about the extent
m i a i mi V 1 It. A J
or tne local oenerir. me same orcnara wrai ten, iwenty
or fifty families upon it, each making a living and some
now snBo ib'compiished in less time and with loss
ettort than Arizona has expended to become a state. At no )
distant day the needs of this section, the richest in the!
United States in natural resources, will command national
attention, and the people of Orogon and California uo
knowlege and admit the necessity for anothor state upon
the Paciifc coast.
All that is necessary to bring about the creation of the
new commonwealth is unanimity of action, enterprise and
energy, which is possessed in abundance by its inhabi
tants. At present Siskiyou is gaining in population faster
than any other portion of America, and there is no reason
why the present year should not witness the inauguration
of a systematic effort to obtain the recognition necessary
and push it to a successful outcome.
thing more, is worth many times to city and country what
it ever could be in an undivided state. It is hoped that
before the end of the year each of the larger orchards will
have become the property and home of a multitude of per
sons. The success of the proposed fruitgrowers' exchange
now in process of organization will go a long way toward
settling the marketing, picking and packing problems,
and will enable the small grower to place his product in
the markets of the world on equal terms with the large
grower, thus Temoving the only advantage that the big
orchard has had in the past over the small one, uniform
pack and ability to ship in carload quantities.

And feed the chickens and the pip
On luscious fruits from out the earth

THE ASHLAND RECALL.
AN INSULT TO SHASTA.
- 4-4- 4-4-4.- -
, V CITIZEN of Newark, K J., writes to the Mail Tribune
that an editorial published January 27 regarding the
apple as a cure-all has attracted his attention. This article
was written upon the receipt of a circular printed by a well
known New York commission firm, one of the many para
sites that prey upon the fruitgrowers, mulcting them of
their profits, whose work has been so rav that his firm
has practically been barred from further dealings with
orchardists. This commission man purchased a large
quantity of California Newtown apples and in order to
unload them marketed them 'direct to the consumer
through extensive advertising.
Our correspondent says:, "In justice to the fancy Ore
gon apples, which are seen in the markets here, and which
excite much attention, would state that the fruit offered
for sale by the firm above referred to is so inferior to the
fancy Oregon product as not to be worthy of any compar
ison. They have opened a store in this city for a disposal
of apples and upon personal investigation I found the fruit
to be small and green with many blemishes. In fact, not
o good as lots of eastern apples sold at a lower price. They
.are widely advertised as 'far western Newtown Pippins'
and it is too bad that many people are likely to confound
them with the genuine Newtown Pippins from Oregon."
Oregon products and particularly those of the Rogue
Uiver valley, must expect to suffer through the unscrupu
lous actions of commission men. The only way in, which
to successfully prevent injuring the fair name of local fruit
is to handle it all through a central exchange, along the
lines proposed by the organization now in the process of
formation, when the name will be a guarantee of quality.
TO BUILD SISKIYOU'S CAPITOL
npHES paper is in receipt of a communication from a
Maine syndicate as follows:
"Wo are decidedly interested in the new state of Sis
kiyou issue. Can wo secure four townships either in south
ern Oregon or northern California? If so, we would agree
to jipend $1,500,000 in laying out and developing a capital
cry. It will be some time before we are ready, but we
mean business, and when the time comes we will be ready."
This is but a sample of many communications received
by this newspaper in connection with the proposed state
of Siskiyou, and shows how well spread and how well ad
vertised is tho proposition for southern Oregon and north
ern California to secede from their respective states and
organize a new commonwealth.
There is nothing impractical pr visionary regarding
the proposed new state of Siskiyou. The organization of a
(Editorial in S, F. Chronicle.)
Ashland, n pleasant city at the
head of the Rogue river valley, in
Oregon, has a "recall" provision in
Its charter, under which a petition
has been filed to remove the mayor
for "incompetence nnd lnxness" in
administration. Tho mayor seems t
fear the result, for, instead of as
sisting in the effort to obtain the
opinion of the people on his admin
istration, he is bringing an injunc
tion suit, hoping to have the law de
clared invalid by reason of some al
leged irregularity in its enactment.
It is well worth considering wheth
er it should not be made Impossible
to attack the validity of a law ujoii
which the people concerned have
voted by reason of irrcfgularity in
the process of submission. Doubtless
tho methods prescribed by law should
be adhered to. It would be quite
proper to provide penalties to be in-
flioted on official departing from
them. And in case of attempted
wrong procedure it would bo legiti
mate to apply to the courts to en
force proper procedure. But when
a proposition has been submitted in
such form that the electorate could
not fail to understand the question,
and the people have voted, their no
tion ought to cure nil technical de
fects. Probably "incompetence" in
an official might be difficult to prove
but it does not need to le proven.
The people nre not compelled to
give reasons for their action. In lb
Ashland case the only question of
importanco is whether or not they de
sire their present mayor any longer.
