deceive the purchaser as to quality, whether by the use of
colored netting or in any other way, is prohibited by an
ordinance of the City Council. The city authorities have
been very lenient in enforcing this ordinance, on the rep
resentation of commission merchants and handlers that its
enforcement without time for preparation would work
hardship upon the shippers who had already secured their
season's package. It is thought, however, that public opin
ion now demands that something be done to prohibit the
future use of "snide" packages, the short-quart berry boxes,
the eleven-peck barrels, and the red tarlatan for basket
covers; and it is announced that from this time forward
honest quart boxes and honest barrels alone must be used,
and that the use of tarlatan to deceive the purchaser of
fruit must be dispensed with.
Alexander Prentice, of South Park, brought into Seattle
last week some very good specimens of Crawford peaches,
raised on his place. While they were not of the high flavor
of Eastern Washington peaches they seemed to show that it
is not impossible to produce them in Western Washing
ton, although they are not a fruit that will ever be a money
maker to the man who grows them. Mr. Prentice told our
representative that he had been most shamefully treated
by a nurseryman of Puyallup by the name of Ogle, who
sold him fruit trees on the representation that he was get
ting such standard stock as the Duchess of Oldenburg and
English russet, and now after several years of careful cul
tivation they are discovered to be totally worthless. "I
don't believe in hanging for murder," said he, "but I do
for such a crime as that. Just think of me, in the evening
of life, being robbed of the precious years that have passed
during the growth of these trees." The patriarch of South
Park was right. Such men as Ogle, who "once were and to
day are not," have done great injustice to many fruit
growers of the Sound by palming off trees untrue to name.
We don't blame Mr. Prentice for feeling so mutinous.
Willis Brown, secretary of the American Fruit Growers'
Union, with headquarters at Chicago, and president of the
Oregon Fruit Growers' Union, has had C. B. Jeffries, also
a fruit packer and shipper of Portland, arrested on a
charge of libel. The relations between these two have been
decidedly strained for some time. Each has issued circulars
which have been generally distributed, setting forth their
troubles, and it is a statement in the circular issued by
Jeffries on which Brown bases his complaint, in which
Jeffries states that Brown is dodging his creditors and has
been crooked in his dealings with fruit growers. As both
parties most concerned are well provided with printed mat
ter concerning each other it seems probable that the trial
will be interesting.
The Citizen complains about the lack of organization
among fruit growers and says: "The Puyallup Valley will
receive little benefit from its enormous fruit crop. No or
ganized plan has been devised to either ship it away or
preserve it for winter and early spring markets. Politics
are not to blame for this waste. It is due to sheer neglect."
Kittitas against the world. Mr. Wm. Killmore, resident
on the west side of the river, at one cutting cut from six
acres this season 37 tons and 160 pounds of timothy hay, an
average of over six tons per acre. Mr. Killmore has had the
hay baled, and at $9 per ton he will realize $303, or a gross
income of $55.50 per acre from the six acres. If there is a
spot in the State of Washington that can beat this record
we would like to hear from it. —Localizer.
