SCENE OF ACCIDENT DURING AEROPLANE ELOPEMENT,
PHOENIX. Ore, Nov. 3, To tho
Editors Tlio season for gardener
nhil producers in general being about
over, t, ns ono of tlicni, wish to voice
my gratitude to tho parties who nrc
responsible for giving us a channel
through which we hav been nble to
dispone of our produce in a profil
nblo mnnncr, I refer to tho public
market. It hnn been n decided suc
cess from our point of view mid judg
ing from tho crowds thnt gnther at
the market on market day we are not
the only ones to profit by it. The
consumer has been nble to purchase
produce cheaper this past summer
nnd fall than for several years past,
and wo have received enough to en
able us to realise a profit which like
wise h a unique experience with us.
before wc had to take what the mer
chants wero pleased to give us and
usually thnt was in trade, but the
more usual experience was to find
the stores supplied with vegetables
and fruits shipped in from other
, There is a wnil and n moan when
ever n merchant hears of local peo
ple sending to mail order houses for
their necessities, but a reversal of
situations does not seem to appeal to
their sense of injustice. They claim
thnt it is a business proposition with
them to buy of foreigners who can
nfford to sell tho results of their la
bor at the very lowest figure, but it
is '.likewise a business proposition
with the farmer when he sends to a
mail order house to supply bis needs.
In discussing these conditions with
people who are interested in them
there is up one thing so generally
condemned as tho merchants associ
ation. It has grown to be very strong
nnd like nil concerns that are able to
dictate in a measure, it has also
grown very dominating. It has boy
cotted certain papers for advertising
pnrjwses, thus showing that it is not
working for the benefit of local in
stitutions. And this was their prin
cipal argument against the market,
i e, that people should patronize them
nnd thus encourage locat business
The very nature of the mercantile
business demands competition in the
interests of both buyer and seller.
But iu place of any such thing as
this we find an association thnt does
away with nil business rivalry be
tween firms. The monthly banquet
that they hold are features that are
dispensed with in towns where com
petition exists, and the salaries that
are paid the officers of this acsso
ciation 'come out of yonr pocket nnd
mine. They would not keep this go
ing if it redounded to anything but
their profit. Any firm that would
brenk loose from this association and
advertise as having done so would
give itself the best possible recom
mendntion in the eyes of nil who
muke Mcdford their .shopping place.
The writer is not n knocker. On
the other hand he is a booster for
the Rogue river valley nnd for Med
ford, but the high pile ot merchan
dise in comparison with nurrounding
towns is n condition -hat should be
remedied. Freight rates arp practic
ally alike to all railrnisl towns. If
there is any difference it should bo
in favor of Mcdford merchants who
buy in larger quantities.
In attempting to remedy conditions
mentioned above, a sturt has been
made on the right road by putting in
the public murket. It is tho logical
solution of our greatest problem, and
wo are very grateful to those whose
foresight and pereverenee mndo the

Asldo from the three cornered fight

None of the powers have yet replied
