by tho willing cooperation of the

To tho fruitgrowers of Rogue Itlver
Your commltteo appointed by tho
authority of the mass meeting on tho
8th instant to consider and act upon
tho matter of orchard inspection,
begs to report as follews:
A thorough discussion of tho situa
tion, meeting tho district horticul
tural commissioner, and tho county
court, havo brought out the facts that
the growers In many Instances havo
failed to co-operate with the author
ities, have been negligent, and in
somo cases havo wilfully defied tho
law In tho matter of handling blight.
The result of this has been for tho
authorities to take tho position that
the growers aro responsible for much
of tho damage done. This position Is,
In tho opinion of your committee,
both justifiable and reasonable, and
jour committee has asked that tho
law be enforced Irrespective of cir
cumstances. At tho same time, It Is apparent
that the past year has been an un
usually favorablo one for blight which
created a situation beyond the con
trol of tho inspection forco, and to
meet this situation, to protect those
growers who havo observed tho law,
and to protect tho fruit industry as a
whole, tho district horticultural com
missioner and the county court havo
