GETS BEST MARKET
An interesting and significant incident
occurred after the close of the North
western Land Show In St. Paul out
of which the western auole box oomi
trlumohant. A large measure of the
success of western anule shlooera In se
curing the best market has been the
attractive manner in which the product
were Disced before the consumer. The
following letter was printed in the St.
Paul Disoatch on December 21st, and
represents the average easterner's im
pression regarding the capacity of the
western anole bos :
"To the Editor of the DieDatch :
"I was at the Land Show and saw
aoplea and anplea. I asked for the price
of them. The manager aaid: This
apple sells tor 10 cents. Well if the
apole growers can find enough Creo
suses. who are willing to pav them 10
cents for each apple, it certainly con
cerns nobodv but tne parties in interest.
But I reallv did not go to the show to
look at the aootes .but to look for pack
ing cases which would hold a bushel,
and failed to see one.
Long vesrs ago the East supplied us
with apples, and thev were miithty good
apples. Thev came in barrels. Thev
do todav. in barrels of the aame size.
When the Western apples came on
the market thev came in bushel boxes.
Then the Western aoole grower had a
bright idea. Whv saake the boxes hold
a bushel? So the bushel boxes shrank
until thev now hold. I do not know how
many pecks, but certainly not four
I know iheie are many people who will
not buv Western apples until the grow
ers pack their apples in bushel toxes.
whieh hold four pecks. E. REIFF.
North St. Paul, December 21."
F. D. Culver, of the Furlev-Culver
Comoanv of Carlton. Washington,
whose comoanv won the Sweepstakes
Cud at the Land Show for the best ten
boxes of apples grown in the American
Northwest, took up the gauntlet on
behalf of the aoole growers of Wash
ington and achieved a public victory,
which should be of immeasurable value
to everv western aoole grower.
lie procured a sealed bushel basket
from the State Commissioner of
Weights and Measures, and in the
presence of the Commissioner and his
assistant and representatives of the
Great Northern Railway, emptied a
box of apples, which bad been packed
in a standard box under Association
rules into the sealed bushel basket fur
nished by the Commissioner. The ac
companying illustration shows the
overflowing bushel that resulted.

When purchase was made in good

equitable rights of such purchaser.

The rule for determining the desert
character of lands is substantially as
follows: Lands that one year with an
other tor a series of vears will not with
out irrigation produce reasonably re
munerative crop are desert within the
meaner of the law.
A showing that crops, even remuner
ative ones, have grown on lands for a
few seusona under unusual conditions
as to rainfall, does not conclusively
prove their non-desert charactor. Cit
ing ease of Peterson vs. Parinson (37
U l 522).

In offering commutation proof,
must be shown that the residence was

SINGLE TAX DILL
TO BE CONSIDERED
Salem. Jan. 24. That the single tax
propaganda will extend into everv one
of the 34 counties in the state was
the announcement made by W. S.
U'Ren todav. following the decision
of yesterday in the Supreme Court.
The same bill that is represented in
the Clackamas county petitions will
be circulated throughout the respec
tive counties. Mr. U'Ren said that
Multnomah County would le the next
target with the single tax petitions
and as rapidly as possible thev will be
spread throughout Oregon. What effect
the passage of a single tax measure in
anv one county or in a number of
counties would have on the system of
assessment and equalization is a prob
lem that has not vet been figured out
but State Tax Commissioner Galloway
todav said that it would lead to num
erous complications and might possibly
result in a reversion to the old County
Assessor system used before the crea
tion of the State Tax Commission.
It would certainly result he believes
in some change in the method of as
sessing valuations of public service cor
porations and it is probable that the
single tax plan would work a hardship
on numerous counties as far as the as
sessment of public service corporations
It is a moot question here as to just
what some of the provisions of the sin
gle tax bill mean that is, the bill
which it is proposed to circulate
throuub the respective counties.
Whether it would result in the exemp
tion of saloons from paving a license
cannot be determined by those who
have examined the provisions that are
contained therein. In this respect, lo
cat atton.evs sav. it is ambiguous and
"No tax shall be imposed upon any
trade, labor, business, person, occupa
tion or profession under the pretext of
a license or the exercise of the police
power within said county" is one of the
bill's provisions. In the same para
graph the bill recites : "It is not in
tended to impair the police power of
the ceuntv. city or state."
NEW VIEW AS TO
That colonization work in Orecon is
seriously hampered through the failure
of the railroads to out in effect home
seekers' rateB extended throughout the
vear. is the opinion of Frank Ira White,
a Klamath Falls land dealer, who. in
Portland expressed his dissatisfaction
with the elfect of colonist rates, savs
"Coloniat rates do not meet the re
quirements of the movement to locate
farmers from the states east of the
Rockies on Oregon farms." said Mr.
White, "and the experience nf vears
ouuht to convince traffic officials of the
railroads as it has the men engaged in
efforts to colonize farm lands through
out the Coast states, of the necessity
ot round-trio rates extending through
everv month in the. year. The desir
able homeseeker is not a man who
pulls up stakes and (roes on a one-way
rate to locate in a strange land. In
deed, the bulk of the colonist rate
movement is of the floating element
that is not particularly desirable to anv
community the fellows who would aa
readily start on a iournev to Siberia or
the moon if a colonist rate were estab
lished at a price within his means.
"The man that Oregon needs is the
successful tenant farmer of the corn
states, or the son of the substantial
old resident of the congested agricul
tural districts who is looking to the
Pacific coast states to establish himself
as his parents did on the old location
two or three decades aso.
"The homeseeker worth while is the
man who makea an initial trio of in
vestie-ation and after finding the soot
that aatistles return to dispose of his
holdings and come back later to re
main. He is not attracted bv the colo
nist rate because it comes at a sea
son when his farm work prevents leav
ing home. In the corn states tne first
of March is too late for the farmer to
go out seeking a change of base in the
current year, for it is the date on which
tenants take possession of land rented
for the ensuing vear. In most vears
the actual work of farming operations
begins in March in Kansas. Missouri
Iowa. Illinois and states further
aouth. and in anv event preparations
for actual field work keeps the good
farmer at home from Marsh until
vest is over."
SHOW A DECREASE
Tables prepared bv the Hureau of
Railway Economies from the reports
made bv the railways for that month
to the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion show that the business done tv
the railways of the United State In
the month of November was somewhat
less than the oualness done in Novem
ber. 11)10, when measures bv the aver
age per mile, tho only basis which com
parison can properly be made.
The total operating revenues of rail
ways Include their receipts tor freight
and passenger transporttion. for mail
and express service, and for all other
traffic service rendered. The average
receipts in November. 1911. for a little
more than 90 per cent of the total
mileage of the country, were $1,054 a
mile, a decline of 118 a mille from the
receipts in November. 1910. There was
a decrease in average recoiots in both
freight and passenger service. The
decline was unevenly distributed. The
lines of tho eastern oart of the country
show onlv a slight decrease for Novem
ber. 1911, in comparison with Novem
ber. 1910, while the lines In the south
ern part show a slight Increase and tho
linea in the western section a falling
off. In the total operating revenue,
the receipts for freight transportation
represent 71.7 per cent and receipts for
passenger transportation 20.8 per cent,
the remainder coming from mail,
express and other sources.
Operating expenses also show a lower
average per mile of line. These include
all costs of maintaining track and
eauiomcnt. the cost of operating trains
of securing traffic and of administra
tion, but do not include new construc
tion. Expenditure for maintenance of
tracks and buildings was reduced bv
an average of 12.40 in a ml'e as com
pared with expenditure in November.
1910. For the maintenance of equip
ment there was an increase averaging
about 10 cents per mile. Bv the re
duction in expenditure for maintenance
of track and buildings the roads were
enabled.to make a slight offset to the
shrinkage In tiTating revenues.
The net revenues, '.hat is, the differ
esice between total operating revenue
and total operating exenses, avcraiied
