McKERCHER EXTOLS
THE NON-PARTISANS
The first Non-l'artisan addres9 of the
valley was delivered at Udell grange
hull Wednesday of last week under
auspices of the Hood River County 'o
mona (fUlg bv 1'aul McKercher,
White Salmon orohanlist, who alinged
himself with the North Dakota move
ment recently. He prefaced his ad
dress by declaring that the science of
agriculture was'in a precarious condi
tion. Mr. McKercher declared that big
lumber interests in Oiegon and Wash
ington are now controlling apple boxes,
which resulu In an extreme high price
by growers. His statements, however,
as to apple boxes hav called forth
criticism from apple shipper, who ad
mit that prices are high, but. who de
clare that lumber interests of the
northwest have made sacrifices to
furnish growers with containers for
the 1920 crop. Lumber interests, ap
ple shippers state, would make more
money by selling their product to other
patrons, but they have made conces
sions by producing boxe enough for
the apple crop. California fruit inter
ests, it is said, have sent box imita
tions soaring bv buying extensively in
the northwestern market.
The Pomona grange has out the ax
for the profiteer. A resolution calling
for laws similar to those of England
was adopted. The grangers state that
no candidate for congress, who will not
publicly declare himself in favor of
non-profiteering laws, will receive the
organization's hupport.
The grange has adopted a resolution
endorsing the attitude t.f the State
Board of Control in withholding sale of
bonds while the market is at low ebb.
The organization has sent copies of its
resolution to Gov. Olcott.
ANTI-JAPAPESE SEN-
Anti-Jananese feeling is running hith
among farmers in the north end of De
schutes county and may result in vio
lent methods to eject Oriental laborers
imported to work on the large holding!
recently acquired by Geo. L liurtt,
wealthy potato broker, according to a
dispatch from Bend.
Trouble, which has been threatening
for some time, developed with the re
ceipt of a letter by Terrebonne farm
ers, in which Mr. biurtt cancelled an
agreement made last fall, when he
pledged himself to employ no more
than three Japanese on each of his
two ranches, F. E. i'ellett. Terrebonne
farmer, informed the Bend Commer
cial club.
Drafting resolutions by a committee
composed of H. J. Overturf. H. S.
Hamilton and Clyde M. McKay, to
protest against further admission of
Orientals and to insist that legislative
candidates from the district pledge
themselves in favor of anti-Japanese
laws, was authorized by the club.
In addition, assurance was given that
Bend men would assist in ridding the
country of the unwelcome laborers.
Mr. I'ellett declared that the farmers
are even more highly incensed against
the white men who brought the Japan
ese into Deschutes dOUnty than against
the foreigners themselves. "As for
Burtt," he said, "we'll show him a
juniper tree with a rope hung over I
limb and see if he can take the hint."
CASTNER REPORTS
CANADIAN CROP GOOD
Nelson Kmry,
Ceo. It. Castner. who has just re
turned from a visit at i'enticton and
Vernon, B. C, states that fruit crop
conditions in the riistrit are very flat
tering. Mr. Castner, who visited his
son, John B. Castner, says:
"All fruit crops are going to be
heavy except apricots. The district
will have as good a peach crop as last
year. PlttflM, pears and apples are
showing well. The British Columbia
section, apparently, suffered but little
from winter kill."
