The recent aoonuocetueut by tbe
kailroads of an iaorease of tun pet
Cent u freight rite comei somewhat
unexpectedly and in view of busiueea
coiiiiitioui ia unwarranted. With a
sluggish market and decreasing pricea
for uioit products tba exaction of
higher ratoa inesns considerably less
tnjm-y for tbe rroducer than it would
year ago wben prices were high and
crops laiger.
It id a singular coincidence that
will) (he announcement of increased
railroad tuildiug iu the Northwest we
are also confronted with higher freight
rateti. It looks very much ai tbougb
tbe railroad magnate lu deciding to
give tbe people more lailroada bad
also come to the decision tout they
must pay tbe added coat for them.
The amount ol money which tbe
higher ratea will take fiom (be pro
ducers of tbe Northwest can be real
IzeU by ao estimate made by tbe
Spokesman Review of tbe added Gout
of transportation to tbe wheat farm
era of Washington alone. Itaaya:
"lake, for lustauce, tbe wheat tann
er a of eastern Washington. With an
estimated wheat crop in eastern Wash
ington tbia yeai of 25,000,000 bushels,
four-flfths of which will probably be
shipped to tidewater at an average
rate of moio than 10 cents a bushel,
tbe wheat giowera will pay to tbe
railroads, or there will be paid In
freight upon their product, to be ta
ken out of the prices they receive, ap
proximately 13,000,000.
"An increase iu 'wheat ratei on an
average of 10 per oeut would mean the
railroads, upon their own Initiative,
reaching their ban4i into tbe pookets
of tbe wheat raiser aud talcing out
1200,000. l'bla iu a season of light
crop. In a season of an average crop
tbe amount would exceed 1300,000 and
in a aeBson of a bumper crop it might
reach flOO.OOJ. This on wheat aloue.
"When there is added to this tbe in
oiease which would be taken In in
creased rates on other farm products,
such as live atock, bay, oats, barley,
rye, potatoes, fruits sod vegetables,
aud upou other commodities such as
lumber, wood and coal, aud upon all
of tbe articles shipped into tbe coun
try to be consumed by tbe farmers,
It Is easily conoelvable that the total
increase to be saddled upon tbe farm
era of eastern Washington might
eulsly amount to 11,000,000 per an
num." A pamphlet contaiulag a copy of the
proposed amendments to the city
charter, which will be submitted tc
voters beta September 22 Is being
mailed out by the oity reoorder. Af
ter due consideration the oity oouuoil
deems it necessary fot the. welfare and
coutiuuod progrens of tba oity that
these amendments ,be aoted on altlr
atlvely. The one that it la most im
portant should reoeive favorable at
tention from voters is that which
allows tba city to Increase Us indebt
edness from tbe small amount of 12,
500 to t5,000. Having outgrown its
bwaddliug clothes Hoed Klvei should
be able to assume an indebtedness
lawfully that will provide it with
Bullloient funds to make proper im
provements and run the affairs of the
oity government on a btouder basis.
The most oogeo t reason, however, for
allowing tbe increase at present, is to
provide funds to pay for tbe new
bridge that ia being constructed to
the cast side. It is linpeiatlve that
the bridge be built aud equallyjlmper
ative that it be paid for, Tue quest ion
of Ha construction ia oue that aifeots
tba welfare of every business man aud
taxpayer in the city. It Is oue of the
important links that oounecU the city
with one of its greatest sources of
revenue, it is a publio benefit aud uh
a putllo trust tbe work of securing its
completion as soon as possible was de
volved on the oity council. In assum
ing this responsibility they became
the pullio servants of the people.
That evsnta have transpired sluoe the
bridge was oouttaoted for tbatoHll fur
additional means to pay for it could
not be foreseen by tbem and it is iu
fact a matter for which the oouuoil
tnen are iu no way responsible The
incontrovertible facts still remain
that the bridge is a publio struoture
built for tbe publio good and that the
money to pay foi It should be forth
coming wben it Is finished. We believe
that viewing the matter in the right
light, tbe amendment to Increase the
city's iudebteduess iu oider to pro
vide for oootlngeuoes of tbischaiacter
ought to aud will be favorably acted

Drying .Cherries to Save Crop.
Dryins cherries instead of oanning
them is uu experiment beiug. made
extensively at Milton this season on
account cf the dull market and the
heavy loss to growets because nothing
could be done with the fruit in season.
On many of the trees the fruit still
clings, while in some orchards the lute
varieties sre just at their best.
(irowers sold all the cherries they
could aud theu ottered the local can
nery more thBU could be tinned dur

going to waste growers tried the ex
periment of drying the fruit, and it
was found feasible. After the cherries
are seeded and spread out in a hot
sun the process is simple and quick,
and some varieties have n flavor quite
like raisi'.s wheu tho curing process
is complete.
