"I promised to cnd vou nn ntticli
on fanners nnd business luen of
lloite Hover vnlley when I renohcd
my San Joflqinu home" said Howard
Trice, who enme up from California
three week:? njjo to pive this vnlley
Vthc onco over." "lint I have been
too busy yoltiiij ready to come back
hero to lisc nny time there for any
thing else," he continued.
"Ciiliforntn h full of hnrd-lnck
stories, but generally the cmw for
that condition down there are differ
ent from thoe liere.O'he effect of
tho war on the situation in Cnlifoinin
is the same, of course; but most of
that ii fictitious. There has been
no true excuse for the banks to hold
the money behind tho boltnof their
vaults to the injury of those whoso
custom it.hns been to do business
through thee institutions; but thev
have done it: and many business
concerns,, including. those. of the .far
mers, have been .seriously crippled.
ilanv fanners who were driven to get
money :u some manner have had to
lull up n hij bonus for it. 'J,'"'1 sys
tem became general and it raised the
interest to an outrageous figure.
"In this waytliQtfnrminsjnlfrpsts
of your valley h.ivc been hint, alo.
I knew tho bankers deny this, but T
also Know that it is true.
Value of Strong Initiative
"The cry of hard times begets
hard times, just ns the knock of the
knocker begets more knocks, erecting
doubt, hesitation and embarrassing
j,rgres. Hankers in inauy Jocnli
tics are the first lo lake advantage
of such n situation. Whoever else
may doubt this statement, your farm
er will approve it. Thev know.
."I don't intend to attempt to jus
iifv Hie fanners of this rich valley
for failure to manifest a stronger in
itiative in the matter of taking firm
hold of industrial and mauufaetuiiug
propositions and currying them vig
orously to a successful conclusion.
Thai is sheer lack of enterprise. Hut
nianv of them told me, nn the occas
ion of my former visit, that they had
for year been discouraged by indif
ferent trentment by the business men
nnd their nrttunirntiuiw of the towns
of the vnlley; that, instead of gmng
ltfOnl producers a full opportunity to
iircatc and maiutaic a local market
for thoir pnducts, they appeared
over-ready to ie the importing job
ber the 'edge' on everything he Iiun
dlud. Investigation proved this .state
ment to bo luio in many instances.
"This is ruinous. It is perilously
ho for U10-.0 whoso investments hire
pivo them a deeper interest thau that
of parsing an etrn pennv oer the
vctnilt r!n counter for. nn imported
article. The progress of vour most
enterprising fanners will be discour
jfirinaly slow umler such conditions,
laekso'i will always be a 'cow ronn
lv,' in a coiuMerei.iI way, until that
policy shall have been wiped off the
tdnto of loea IbuMiicss.
Ii-rlpiitlnn and ()rganl4tion
"T'e most impnitant thing over1
linked by your fanners is itritrntioii.
Tliey will never h" able to see be
yond the msgcu cilsre of their molt
jeaaes till they wash the old parch
ments down stream with a flood nf
