Just n Little Trust.
Patrons of tho McMlnnvlllo dairies
yesterday found themsolvcs face to
faco with a trust of no small pro
portions. Notices wero left at the
doors announcing that from this dae
tho monthly rates for milk per quart
would bo increased from $1.50 to
$2.25, and fixing the rate for a plat
dally at $1.25 per month. Tho pro
prietors of tho two dairies, together
with a few individuals who keep a
cow and sell milk to their neighbors,
were parties to the agreement. There
la considerable indignation at what
is termed the "squeeze," and there is
a great scurrying among house
holders to become the owner of a
gentle Jersey amd & to of hay-
Havo tho ico magnates repented of
their bIuh of omission and commis

make all efforts to win back tho con
fidence and respect ot tho sweltering.
populaco? Last summer Washlng
tonlans havo bogun to think so, nnd
with reason. Last summor Washing
ton, llko many othor cltlos, suffered
from .an alleged Ico famine, and In
addition to several suits against tho'
ico combine, thore wero numborloss
prosecutions for "short wolght" re
tail dollvorles. This year tho seni
or of weights nnd monsuros of tho clla
trlct hns been especially actlvo In hln
ondenvors to round up thoso lcemon
who porsUt In giving tholr custom-
ors short wolght. Instead of having
a rich harvest of offonders as ho did
lost yoar, Mr. Ilaskoll roports tW
after a close observation extending
over n month or moro, ho has dis
covered that tho ico men of Washlnc
ton havo been giving from 50 to 100
per cent moro ico than they got pay
for. This generosity has boon espe
cially apparent In tho small pu--chnses,
and when tho attention of
tho local officials of tho American
Ico compnny was called to It, thov
expressed considerable surprise nnd
protested that they havo not boon
responsible for this wholesalo phil
anthropy. Now 'that tho pooplo of
Washington havo had tlmo to think
It over, they, too, believe It was un
intentional, and fear a return to tho

Answers Complaint.
An answer to tho complaint against
tho C. & E. railroad, as to its Borvlco
botwoen Albany and Yaqulna, which
was filed recently by D. F. Jones,
has boon received in the railroad
commission office. Tho answer de
nies at length that tho seating capac
ity of tho cars Is Inadequate, and sei3
forth that all reasonable domands
nro mot In tho equipment and man
agement of tho road.
Superintendent Novlns sets forth
that tho complaint filed by Mr. Jones
Is false, and stntos that tho plaintiff
and -his wife recently rode in mo
smoking car after being told by the
conductor that it was unnecessary to
do so.
Tho answer also statos that tho
steamer Richardson is undor tho In

Is Busy These Nights Informally Dis
cussing All Phases of the
,: Situation
The city charter board will meet in
tho council chamber next Tuesday
evening when Important measures re
lating to street Improvements nnd
other vital questions will bo dls-
Theso meetings are growing in in
terest and tho mombers aro making
a deep study of tho city's needs and
best mothods of strengthening tho
present municipal government.
At tho last meotlng which was
held last Tuesday evening In tho
council chamber nearly all tho mem
bers of tho board woro present and
profitable discussion of tho policy to
bo adopted by the charter board with
roferenco to tho apportionment of
tnxes which aro levied on property
holders for Improvement purposes
was taken up. Mayor Rodgors ad
vocated tho district plan by which
taxes aro levied with regard to tho
benefits derived from such Improve
ment, which plan soomod to meet
tho npprovnl of many of tho speak
ers. Tho prosont system of taxing
abutting property owners, Is hold by
many to bo unjust, as In many
cases, especially In tho down town
districts, property docs not touch tho
slrcot Improved yet must pay tho
Bamo tax for lmprovomonts as that
which dorlvos a greater benoflt by bo
lng adjacent to tho surb. In soveral
Instanco proporty ownors own a nar
row strip bordorlng tho street while
othcis who havo roal estate running
behind this strip nro tnxod out of
proportion to tho business received
by thorn from such street. Thoro Is
alo snld to bo n dlscroponcy In regard
to taxing 'lots for street Intersections
whore tho property lnys at different
angels in tho block. This can bo
remedlod, according to tho views of
thoso who ndvocnto tho district plan,
by nssossing tho proporty according
to Us nroa and tho bonoflts dorlvcd
owing to location,
Tho public utilities question was
also discussed and It was tho con
sensus of opinion that tho pcoplo
should retain moro power for tho ac
qulromont of public utllltlos, thoreby
placing a safeguard around the
community's Intorcsts.
Tho bonrd will probably soon
reach some doflnlto plan whoroby
mnny of, the weak placo3 In the pros
ont charter may bo Improved.

Oregon Apples In Dcmniiil.
The Norwood, N. Y., News says:
It Is stated that with tho exception
of Oregon thoro nro practically no
apples In the United States to bo
marketed this fall except thoso In
Now York stato. Oregon hns n fair
average ylold, which will bo market
ed through tho usttal channels for
tho boxed' trade. Missouri, Kansaa,
Iowa, IlHnol3, Ohio and tho Virgin
ins aro practically without apple
prospects and will havo to, import
fruit. Michigan has possibly 15 per
cent, somo estimates makes it leas
than 10 por cent of an averago yield.
In western New York tho crops
averago not nearly so largo ns last
year, although of quality somowhat
moro uniform. For onco conditions
favor the grower. Never before did
contracting begin when tho fruit had
not reached tho slzo of a amall mar
ble, but buyers aro already offorlns
$3 por barrel frcoly. Quito a mint-
bor of growers havo contracted tholr
orchards at that figure, but other
aro holding for $4 per barroll or more
for choice fruit.
