Tin- San Francisco OuronieU publishes
what purports to be a detailed statement
of the endowment by Governor Stanford
of the educational institutions he is to
found as a perpetual memorial of his affec
tion for his decea-sed son. The account
contains an extended description of the
landed property, which, as the public has
dy been informed, Governor Stan
ford proposes to make :' };irt (it the sum of
hisendowment Beyond this, the statement
of the lansforthe University areso meager as
to justify the Bssnmption that the publica
tion is not authoritative. Indeed, do other
conclusion can be reached, since the cen
tral thought and idea is' not at all ex
"plaineil or developed — to wit, the scheme
of education whirl! the Governor proposes

which he desires the [Jniversity to servo.
It is probable that the generalities
are correct, bat it appears, after
careful reading, to be vary little, if any
more than lias already been stated to the
public, to wit, that the Palo Alto, the
Vina and the Gridley farms are to he set
aside for University endowment ;
that the University is to he lo
cated at Palo Alto; that the value of these
estates — about live and a half million
oi dollars — is to !»■ supplemented by a
cash endowment, the exact amount of
which has not y.M l>een determined by
Governor Stanford. So far as the plans
for the school are concerned,. the ('!• on-
UUt statement relates chiefly to buildings
for them. While this is interest ing,
as must be anything, and every
thing relating to the great work to
which the Governor has determined to de
vote the major portion of his wealth, it
will Ik? noted that no reference is made,
sive in a very general way, to the schools
proper. The Ckronide says, and this is
practically all it says outside of the de
scriptions referred to :
9*nntor Stanford has authorized the foUowic ;

buildings a) Palo Alto will be constructed on

step in the development ol tin 1 plan will be the
construction of buildings for parents and guard

Trustees may designate, this in the hope that
they may select Palo Alto as a temporary or per
manent home, and that the rental from such
buildings will constitute a very considerable
part of the income of the institution. If this
nope should be fulfilled, the establishment of
preparatory behools wiU follow, so that facilities
may be afforded for the education of children
of a tender see. The project includes an agri
cultural department and special buildings for
mechanical Institutes, mtueums and art
leries connected with the colleges. To crown

Mr. .Stead goes to prison for the period j
of three months for a technical offense, :
commuted in the interests of common mo- '
rality and for the exposure and punish-
nient of vice and crime. Stead is right in
saying that the offense for which he must
serve a terra in a debtors jail wa.s his one
blunder. It is the one and only thing his
enemies have been able to fasten upon in
all his exposures that was available. It
remains that the facts he gave to the pub
lic have not Wen, and cannot be, refuted.
It remains that there is, and has long '•een
carried on a horrible trafiic in female chil
dren in London, and that the police
authorities have been cognizant of t.nd
parties to it. It remains that the laws of
K:i_liind are inadequate to protect the
virtue of female children against the wiles
and mwmiilH of rich roues and beastly lib
ertines. It remains that in boasted Eng
land there is more protection and aid
given to the owner of a <!ol; in search
ing for and recovering that property
than to the parent who invokes the aid
of the law to rescue his child from her
abductors. It remains that there is tol
erated in England a regular system of
marketing young virgins to the lusts of
bestial men, and that while a woman can
not at a given age consent to be married,
cannot make a lawful contract or lie held
for debt or served with civil process,
■he can consent to be ruined. Xo matter
what influences :irc brought to hear, short
of physical force, to bring her to ruin, she
has no remedy in the law. The Queen of
England and her council can serve the
cause of humanity by pardoning Stead for
his technical offense. The very fact of his
conviction and punishment by so li^ht :i
term of imprisonment a.s three months,
mill the light punishment of othexs charged
with him, who wen- not acting under the
same commendable motive that actuated
him, is damaging proof of the inadequacy
of Kn^lL-ii law to right great wrongs
against females. Suppose Stead to have
been one of the rascals whose horrible do
ings he exposed ; suppose him to have, in
(act, been guilty of stealing from her pa
renta a female child, and to have inde
cently assaulted her by the aid of a physi
cian to ascertain her purity, how farcical
:t would have been to have sentenced him
to imprisonment in a common jail for six
months, or even six years. Death mi the
gibbet would be too much honor fur such a
The Oali puts it that the present excite
ment about the Chinese, and the assaults
upon them, are due to the fact that the I
Laws of Congress are not enforced — that
the people are simply trying to do what
the Federal authorities should have done.
In one sense this may he true. But that
the laws have not been enforced is due to
their inherent weakness, and their extreme
tenderness of the "rights" of a lot of
foreigners who have no rights, except such
;!s arc secured to them by treaty. Another
cause of the failure of the law is the
cupidity and rascality of gome of our own
people, who barter their birth-rights for
the sake of what they can make out of the
husiness of smuggling in Chinese in de
liance of the law. The Federal officials
have ii"t been over active, hut give them
their dm — they have been hampered at
every step, crippled by the contradictory
and uncertain interpretations of the Law,

the Washington authorities, and, above nil,

Report of (he Transportation Com
mittee in Full— Discussion
upon the Report.
fFroin the Record -Union's Special Reporter.]
The State Convention of Fruit-Growers
met yesterday in San Francisco at 1 p. m.
Professor E. W. Hiigard presided. The
business was to resume consideration of the
fruit transportation question discussed at
the session of September 24th and l!sth.
The Chair called for the report of the
Committee on Transportation and Market"
ing of California fruit.
Mr, Aikcn, as Chairman of the commit
tee, submitted the report, which was read
by Secretary Livermore. The report was
as follows :
To the Convention oj Fruit OipuiO'j nf California :
Appointed by your Convention winch met in
San Francisco on the Zttta of September, 1-s;,, n
tonuoiuee "to perfect the details of organiza
tion of a corporation for the protection of their
mutual interests ami the disposal of their pro
duce," we proceeded immediately to organize
aud work.
We were well aware of the arduous character
of the duties imposed upon us, and of the com
plicated nature of the problems we were set to
We took for our "sailing dircetiou-s" two con
trolling facts, viz., that in order to achieve suc
cess we niu*t. first, materially cheapen the rates
of frclfiht on California fruits to all Eastern con-
Mimpticrii market?, and systematize the trans
portation of Htch fruits thereto, at the same
tiniL' developing those markets to the utmost, in
order to iusure profitable sale lor the constantly
Increasing produce of California fruits. Second,
thai in order to successfully accomplish the first
we needed Ui k'ct together the body of the fruit
growers of California in one organization of
''united co-operation," based upon their own
mutual Interests and mutual protection.
In order that we might act understanding];
and effectively we needed to know, liist. the
field we had to cover, to know with at least aD
proximate reliability how many fruit-producers
we had to deal with, where located and what
was their product; also, how much fruit, of va
rious kiuds. was sent to Eastern markets, whence
shipped and to what markets of consumption
For our Information, in the first particular,
we applied to the "Hoard of Horticulture," ami
wen- courteously furnished by the Secretary the
list used in his office, of the parties Interested
in fruit culture throughout California, h com
prised an alphabetically arranged list of names
and locations, upward of 5,000 in number, but
entirely without any information as to number,
variety and age oi trees, amount of product,
extent and direction of shipments and .such
kindred information as in absolutely necessary
to be somewhere acoi Bsible to the fruit-growi r
iv order that he may handle his business under
Proceeding to make the best use possible of
this IM, we mailed to each party thereon our
circulars of October 1, 1885, two In number,
hereto attached as exhibits Bos. 1 and 2. sub
sequent studies of the list by the respective
members of our committee, with reference to
their respective counties, impress them with
the fact that the list was very far short of com
plete, as to the fruit-gMwers of their localities
known to themselves. Particularly was this
pointed out to be the fact with reference to the
counties of Santa Clara and Los Angeles, and,
on communicating with the Assessors of those
counties, your committee were "informed that
I,4oo persons 1c Santa Clara, and over 1,7110 in
Los Angclc> were assessed as owners of orch
ards, while less than one-half that number
appeared on the list of ' the Hoard of Horticult
ure,' on which we had based our work, and
which has always been the accepted list of ' the
fruit-growers ol California.'" The Assessor's
list of Los Angeles county has reached us, but
too late t" be used for the purposes of this con
vention, while the list of Santa < lara county
has not yet reached us. involving many day- of
clerical work of an expert to prepare. Un
doubtedly the same fact i.- true of all the other
counties of the Stule. so rapid everywhere has
been the growth of the interest, and it may be
safely stated that our circulars have not been
addressed to one half ol the people of the State
who are directly interested In fruit culture,
though they have been addressed to upwards of
5,000 different names In the State We submit
that this condition ol things affords, in Itself, an
unanswerable argument iv favor of some organ-
Used Union of the fruit-growers, whereby their
rapidly growing interests maybe fostered and
protected. Iv the present condition of things
they cannot be even ascertained, and the whole
army of fruit-growers maybe put to rout and
stampeded Into insolvency before we rightly
know who compose It, or on what Line it is open
to attack.
Sunn receiving numerous letters of inquiry as
to details, bom parties who bad received our
lirst issue of circulars (viz., exhibits -N'os. 1 and
2), we drew up and sent out to all on the afore
said Btate Horticultural Board list ol Fruit
growers, we having no other, two additional
circulars, exhibit 8, getting forth the plan and
details of a similar organization, which the
Florida fruit-growers have been compelled to
adopt to protect themselves f:oxn evils similar
io, though fax less serious than those that
vow threaten the California fruit-grower ; also
exhibit I, which was calculated to answer
many Inquiries ami objections called out by our
first circulars. All of these circulars are sub
mitted as a part of this report, as indicating the
line of this committee's work, and as furnishing
valuable material for the action of any com
mittee or organization that may succeed to the
work of this committee-, for we are convinced
that the Bubject, being now opened, will never
be allowed again to rest or pause antH a "Pro
tective Union" of the fruit-growers of California
Is established In some form. Nothing short of
the blindest, most Inconceivable folly, or, what
is worse, sectional differences, over-riding the
general good, can much longer prevent the re
alization of this, S3 much needed, " Union."
In our before-described correspondence with
the Individual fruit-growers we have limited
ourselves to the general presentment of the idea
of organization and union, deeming the details
matters more properlj to be discussed by the
subscribers to any otgaßlsatlon that may be
formed us tin- result ol your convention action.
We have not felt warranted in presenting arti
cles of incorporation or liy lavs of the corpor
ation contemplated li> the resolutions of the
convention of September 24, IMS.
We have opened no lists) of subscription for
stock in surh corporation, although we have
received a large number of letters tendering the
We are aware that under the resolutions of
the previous convention we might have been
justified in so doing, Mil a mature consideration
of the subject concluded us in the opinion that
it waf wiser to wait for a renewed and more
definite expression of opinion from a second
convention, more numerously attended by
fruit-growers who have been carefully consid
ering the whole subject since the lost conven
tion, and who have given due thought to our
circulars addressed to them. We felt confident
that such a convention would reaffirm, in the
most positive way, the recommendation oi the
first convention, in favor of a corporation to se
cure an organized uuiou of fruit -growers, hut
we also fell and do hope, that in so doing we
shall be relieved of .-ome of the responsibility
of deciding upon all the numerous difficult
points of detail*, and that we may find in the
later convention li^'ht and BBggestive aid,
which naturally the whole convention could
not afford, the \\"!iole subject being so new and
little considered.
Having thus addressed ourselves to our fel
low fruitgrower^, and placed the subject mat
ter as fully before then as OUT limited facilities
and time enabled us to do, we turned our atten
tion to the even more Important duty of en
deavoring to solve the freight problem, assum
ing, as before stated, that without very material
reduction of freight charges on all California
fruit, to all Eastern markets, the fruit interests
of the State had already reached a point whence
they must seriously decline in value for the
lack of ability to find profitable markets for
their produce,
Judging it to be good policy to go direct to
headquarters on the subject, we sent a written
invitation to President I-eland Stanford, of the
Southern Pacific Company, to meet us at our
committee rooms and discuss the question.
This he accepted, aud in the presence ol all
your committee, the most ample consideration
was given to the matter of railroad freights
and facilities to Knstern markets, as relating to
the future of the California fruit interests.
We are able, therefore, to say, on the personal
assurance of President Stanford, that he fully
recognises the great imjiortance of the fruit
interests to the State and in its ability to afford
freight to the transportation companies repre
sented by him. He stated his conviction that,
properly managed and fostered, it would, in
future, become the most important interest of
the state, and that, for that reason, it was
sound business policy for the railroadß to en
courage it, if for no other reason, because of the
transportation business it would afford them.
He, however, explained that under the pres
ent -ystem of transportation, on the overland
express passenger trains, no increased facilities
could be afforded, for the average of four cars
daily, now required on such trains during the
fruit season were the extreme limit of their ca
pacity to handle, and were, in fact, frequently
a serious drag t" them.
He stated that, as an alternative measure of
renef, his companies were willing to put on
■ special fruit trains" of fifteen cars, three times
a week, or as much oftener as needed, at the
rateof J3H) per ear of ten tons, to Chicago, pro
vided the fruit-growers would so organize their
shipments as to contract specifically to fill such
trains, so that they might be regularly dis
patched on schedule time. He explained, iv
detail, why it was necessary that there should
be regularly and reliably provided loads for
such trains before they could be put on. point
ing out that without some organized direction
of the fruit shipments an excess of cars might
be offered one day and none the next, so that
definitely the transportation companies must
know whom to look to tor the loading of such
trains before they could put them on.
He entered into details of how such trains
could easily be made up by a proper fruit
growers' organization by details from th« vari
ous produciag localities, and clearly demon
strated that it would prove an actual benefit to
so organize for the systematizing of their East
ern shipments. Replying to direct inquiries, he
said that the trains should be specially equip
ped for the bu mess, every way adapted to safe
transportation of green fruits, and that they
would be rnn on fan time, stopping only for
water aud fuel, and consequently being so much
more steady in motion, would, in his judinnent.
; transport fruits better than had the cx
i press trains, which s.opped so much more fre
j quently lor mails, etc. He stated that he would
! use all his influence with all connecting Eastern
i roads to obtain a proportionate rote and time
; lor California fruit cars, clear through to the
! Atlantic seaboard, and, though he could not
; now bind such roads, he thought we might
safely count on it, if we could only organize bur
. business to make up the trains in California.
: On a similar organization of special trains for
1 fruit, en slow or ordinary freight time, he gave
u« to understand that his companies would I
make a rate of fc»Q per carload often tons to ;
Chicago, whenever the fruit shippers' orgauiza- :
tion would lurnish loads for trains of cot less ]
than fifteen cars at a time. He outlined to us !
in ijuite surprising detail, his views of how the '
fruits could easily, under proper organization,
be gotten together to load such special fruit
trains, with regularity, and even with greater
economy of leading than at present : how East
ern consumption markets cou'.d aud should be !
handled, under properly organized business
effort, so that, with the lower freight rates ren- 1
dered possible by the special fruit train system,
a vast extension of the markets lor California i
fiuits might be realized.
With such assurances from such a source,
your committee considers that the freight ques- j
tion may be accepted as favorably solved, if
only the fruit-growers will so organize ns to
contract for special fruit trains at regular '
To form a safe judgment as to our ability to |
do so at present, we found we needed much I
fuller statistics of the eastward shipments of |
California fruit* than have ever heretofore i
been accessible to fruit-growers. All previously
published statistics have simply given the ag
gregate quantities shipped. Without any light
as to kinds, point of shipment and point of
destination. All these should have been ac
cessible to every fruit-grower, had the interest
hud its necessary organization. Doubtless these
facts were known to the Eastern speculators,
who are almost exclusively handling the Cali
fornia fruits in the East, but Mich information
us is possessed by them is a sealed book to Cali
fornia fruit growers. We were therefore com
pelled to have recourse to A. N. Towne, Man- i
iiger of the Southern Pacific Company, who ■
courteously undertook to compile from the i
various shipping office! of the railroads under I
his control such information as could thero be
found. It proved to be a work involving
much time, and we have only received it
barely in time to submit herewith recomputed

FroM the foregoing exhibit of shipments of
:ii;i j-wu frulu eastward for the >ear
1885 up to October Ist, we deduce that, had tbe
fruit-groweis been organiz-d bo ai to hare '■.■!!
traded Bm -pec ial fruit trains they could easily
have loaded such trains at least us often as
every alternate day, and thus have secun '1 the
freight ou this fruit at ra is probably not over
half what they have paid. At SlflO per car for
freight trains, and S6OO a.:- passenger trainii, (he
fruit baa paid £199,400 freight, while, under the
proposed organization, which alone renders
possible the procurement by contract of special
fruit bains at a rate of $300 pel car, the fruit
would have paid (307,500 freight, a saving to the
fruit-growers of 1191,900, supposing the fruit all
went bygueb special fruit trains on fast time
hand none went by the slower, ordinary freight
train. Besides this the lower freight rate thus
attainable would have permitted of the p
ble shipment "f a very considerable quantity of
green fruit which whs not mark* ted at all tab
season, but spoiled hi the growers' orchard be
cause it could not lind any profit In going to
market at existing freight <''"i.-v.
The statement also Shows that not one single
carload was shipped direct t<> New york,Bos
ton, Philadelphia or other of the large Atlantic
centers of population. Such supplies as reached
this Atlantic coast population, naturally very
large consumer! ot fruits because non-producers
and largely possessed of the means to buy, must
hayo come to them ut second hands through
Chicago. Can it be doubted, in face of this
showing, that with a proper organization which,
by cheap tnights and direct shipments, keep-
Ing up a regular supply in these markets, will
aiiord California fruits as cheaply as they have
heretnfnreijeen afibrdedin Chicago, there \>jii
b? created an enormous outlet for California
fruits? We believe it undeniable that racb will
prove to be the case, aud that these markets
may thus be developed so as to at least double
the total consumption of California fruits. We
believe, also, that t'.ie middle country, which
has been, thus far, proportionally the best de
veloped, will, under the stimulus of lower prices
aud regular (applies, consume largely increase i
quantities over what it is now taking, and we
feel the most confident justificat ion lv saving to
the fruit-growers of California that it only needs
their united actiOD in organizing their business
tv secure these ino.«t profitable results which
now, for lack of business-like organization, are
entirely escaping them.
Referring to the statement of fa-tward ship
ments of California green fruits, we call atten
tion to tiic laet that the business of snipping
compacts itself into only seven terminal ship
ping points; that eight tenths of the whole
shipment is handled at one terminal point, viz:
Sacramento: that over nine-tenths or the total
is handled at the two terminals— Sacramento
and San Jose.
This in it-elf, we think, furnishes a conclusive
answer to those who dwell upon the difficulties
of operating tin 1 proposed 1 'nion because of the
wide extent ot tield it must cover.
We are confident that this difficulty is imag
inary and will entirely disappear under good
business organization. We are well aware, of
course, that not all the cars dispatched from
tliese two points were actually loaded there,
but from these points, as a nucleus, all the
loading, at the adjacent points of production,
can be readily and systematically supervised,
and transportation on time reliably pre ar
Askingthe thoughtful consideration of all the
foregoing facts by all fruit growers, we now beg
to submit tv them our conclusions, viz.:
1. We, more than ever before, urge upon them
the absolute necessity of a co-operative union,
and we repeat our recommendation for the in
corporation of the ''California Frail Union" in
substantially the manner contemplated by the
1 resolutions of your Convention of September
■jl. 1885. We have, in the course of our commu
nicatious with individual fruit-growers, who
are also shippers, received many suggestion."
worthy of careful consideration, and »nmc of
them we have decided to recommend to the
adoption ut your convention as modifications ot
the plan originally under debate. Namely: We
recommend that the privilege of subscription to
capital stock of the Union be extended tv own
en of acreage of small fruits and of vegetables,
for we are convinced that these may find large
markets in the East under the facilities of the
Union — the former in some form of the now so
successful "cold storage ear.'' aud the latter in
ordinary cars suitable for their safe transporta
tion, but at rates of freight less than fruit rates,
and socially to be arranged hereafter with the
transportation companies, who promise every
encouragement to this particular interest when
organized, in order to build up a trade. The
business thus created would be a most valuable
adjunct, as it would furuibh freight to go with
the early fruits at a time when freight is needed
to make uptrahis.
2. We recommend that the privilege of sub
scription to capital stock of the Union be ex
tended to owners of orchards of all kind*,
whether Eastern shippers or not, since many
such owners have expressed a desire to join the
Union because its operations in extending
Eastern shipments would, by relieving the local
markets, largely benefit them in their local
3. We recommend that the privilege of sub
scription to the stock of the Union be not lim
ited to acreage already bearing, foreven though
acreage be not yet in bearing, it will at once
reap large benefits from the "Union," and many
owners of such acreage desire to subscribe.
4. We recommend that stockholders of the
"Union" be allowed the option of selling their
fruit to th« Union at a mutually agreed price,
duly loaded in the cars at point of shipment,
should they prefer it to shipping through the
Union to consumption markets and taking
actual avails of sales.
5. We recommend that stockholders of the
Union, who, besides being fruit-growers, have
been also fruit shippers on their own account
to Eastern consumption market, may in any
shipments they may make through the Uuion
name the poiut of destination and the party to
whom consigned of their truit, provided that
the "Union" may also exercise advisory super
vision, to avoid, so far as possible, duplicate
shipments to same destination and saasequent
loss to both shippers.
6. We recommend that the number of Trustees
of the Union be increa-ed to nine, so that each
locality may be represented.
7. We recommend that stockholders of the
Union, who have outstanding contracts for
their produce in advance, may be permitted to
fill such contracts through the Union, designat
ing the delivery of said produce to the destina
tion and parties to whom it is already so con
8. We recommend that in the division of the
net profits ot the " Union " there be allotted to
the stockholders of the Union dividends of not
exceeding six per cent, per annum on their
stock ; next, that there be allotted two per cent,
to a permanent reserve fund of the Union, and
that all the remaining profits be divided among
the subscribers to the Union consigning produce
through kaid Union proportionately to the
amount of produce so consigned, the "intent be
ing to make thai Union essentially a "co-opera
tion" for the profit of fruit-growers.
9. We recommend that In the laws of the
; Union provision be made that no stock shall be
issued except to the owners of aooage, such aa
j hereinbefore designated ; that 110 transfer of
! stock be made as associated with such acreage ;
; that voting of shares, at all meetings, be re
stricted to such owners of acreage ; that voting
by proxy be also restricted, as far as legally pos
sible, to the end that the control of the t'uion be
maintained in the fruit-growers themselves.
10. We recommend that all officers ofthe Union
placed in positions of trust be required by the
TIUIIUHto (live good and sufficient bonds for
the faithful discharge of their respective duties.
And finally, these recommendations of modi
i tication being duly ougraited on the original
plan as ratified by your Convention of Septem
j ber 24, INtt, we recommend that the Convention
now proceed to adopt articles of Incorporation
of the California Fruit Union, and take all the
' necessary steps to complete the organization
| thereof.

i Kiuuey, A. Block, Horatio P. I.ivermore, F. C.
! Del.ong, Morris M. Estte, Committee on Organi
! zation.
Vpon the conclusion of the reading of
the report, M. M. Estee moved that it be
adopted. Seconded.
The question was asked what was in
tended by trains of fifteen cars when it
must be a complete train ?
Mr. Livermore answered, that it would
need to he a complete train when it left
I Sacramento, the principal shipping point.
The question was asked, whether in ease
lof cars going from San Jcse the price
I would be $300 from that place or from Sac
Mr. Livermore thought lines not entirely
owned by the main transportation com
pany would charge, hut when the car
struck the main line no charge would be
made from there to Sacramento.
In answer to a question he said New
castle would remain a shipping point, the
same as now, and its cars added when
train arrives there.
Ci. \V. Hancock, of Sacramento, moved
as a substitute for the pending motion,
that the report be accepted and placed on
lilt". . This he did in order to get it before
the Convention for proper action, so that it
could be considered by paragraphs.
.Mr. Estee, of Napa, opposed the motion,
saying it would not be debatable, and
would bury the report.
Mr. Aiken said the purpose of the com
mittee is, that if the report was adopted,
that the stockholders would meet Wednes
day morning to organize.
Mr. Hancock claimed that no one could
discuss the report, because it did not give
any idea of the details I f the organization,
and hence no one would know whether
they desired to become stockholders or not.
Mr. Livermore replied that the plan was
indicated by the resolution adopted at the
last meeting, and it had also been set forth
in circulars tinee issued. He then read
the ariicles of incorporation, saying they
might throw some light upon the subject.
Mr. Kinny. of Los Angeles, moved, as a
means of cutting the knot, that the con
clusions of the report be taken up seriatim,
discussed and voted upon.
The previous motions were ignored, and
this one adopted. The Secretary then read
Recommendation No. I, affixed at the close
of the report.
Mr. Russell, of Ilaywards, desired to
know whether — if he did not raise any
fruit, but did raise potatoes — he could sub
scribe to stock on the acreage of potatoes
he grew ?
Mr. li venn ore said Governor Stanford
had remarked that he thought early in the
season, when there was but little fruit to
ship, as large a business of shipping of po
tatoes might be effected as there is now at
the East in Bermuda potatoes. He thought
such produce might be arranged for.
Mr. Block, of .San .lose, said that in con
versation witli Governor Stanford, in dis
cussing the small amount of fruit on hand
at the time cherries are ripe, and referring
to the requiring of a full train, etc, he said
prices could probably be arranged, so that
a large trailic might be worked up at that
season of the year.
Afier some further remarks the recom
mendation was adopted.
No. 2 was then lead, and unanimously
adopted without debate.
No. 3 wa-> then discussed, the remarks
being directed to limiting carefully the
issuance of Muck.
Prury Melone made some spirited re
marks, in which he stated that a certain
fruit shipper had said that his. tirm had
commenced shipping with a capita] of
$250 ""•». and in four years had made
A. T. Hatch said he did not intend to
make any remarks at this convention, but
when Buch a statement was made lie
thought it till Ii;:y to say that be did not
believe the statement, and he railed upon
the speaker to Gave names.
Mr. Slelone replied thai he would do so:
thai it was Washington Porter, of Porter
Bros., and he told Morris M. Estee so.
[Great commotion.] "1 call upon .Mr.
Estee to say whether or not my statement
is true '
Mr. Kstet — I don't see what that lias to
do here, but inasmuch as I am. asked i will
.say that Mr. Porter did make that state
ment to me. [Renewed commotion, with'
audience looking over to Mr. Hatch.]
The recommendation was then amended
to make it read that stick should only be
issued upon the acreage already planted to
trees, etc. So amended, the number was
then unanimously adopted.
Considerable discussion was held on
recommendation No. 4.
John T. Doyle, in remarks made, entered
somewhat upon :i general review of the
proposed fruit train proposition. He said
he was not, perhaps, apt to look upon rail
roads with over much favor, but in this
case he was of the opinion that the offer of
the railroad officials to take a train of fifteen
cars each alternate day for $.lUO per car. tin
train starting from a central point like
Bacramento, was a very fair one. This
train would be run through as quickly as
passenger trains, but in.-tc-ad of making 2">
miles per hoar and then stopping so long
at stations, the fruit train would "only run
about 18 miles per hour and make few
A. T. Hatch asked whether a member of
this corporation, when formed, could sell
his fruit to anyone outside of the company,
if he was offered more for it.
Mr. Kstee replied:
As often as he pleased, but his common
sense would urjje him to put his fruit where
he held stock. He looked upon many 01
the questions asked and objections made
as in the nature of a disposition to pull
down the effort to form an association.
Hi' said, if those present wanted to organ
ize, and «o organize as to be benefited by
it, and if they would determine to make a
success of it. they could do so. [Applause.]
1.. A Kose, of Los Angeles, made some
remarks in favor of organization, but he
wanted to know what were to be thedetaile
of operations. He advised caution in
methods. Let us get a $300 car-load rate
for all shipments, and tiie problem would
be at once solved.
The 'recommendation under considera
tion was then adopted.
The remaining recommendations in the
report were then considered together, and
discussed in a general way by a large num
ber of speakers.
No. 7 was amended by adding at the close
these words, "provided such contracts do
not extend beyond one year."
In No. H tliere was quite a discussion
concerning the division of profits, but it
was finally passed, and all the recom
mendations contained in the report were
adopted as amende*}.
Quite a debate followed upon the general
plan and purpose of the organization.
A. T. Hatch said he was looked upon as
a sort 0/ obstructionist. He had been
frowned down in a former Convention,
and there was an efiort at this meeting to
talk him down. If the Convention an
swered the purpose for which the first
Convention was called, ho would partici
pate in the movement. He thought the
present body meant business, and if so, be
was in.
Mr. Booth, of Roseville, referred to the
fruit-shippinir organization at Newcastle,
which had been very successful. He
wanted to know if the "men comprising it
were to be ruled out of this organization
unless fhey gave up their fruit-shipping to
parties in the East.
Mr. Livermore answered that they could,
by putting a little money into this associ
ation for membership, have the benefits of
the association, but afterwards admitted
that under the proposed organization they
could not consign to parties in the Kast

indorsing the proposed corporation, and
subscribing for 250 shares. He would sub
scribe for more as his orchards increased in
On motion of Mr. Kinney, a committee
of seven was appointed, consisting of L. J.
Kose, M. M. Kstee, H. Lireriuore, A. Kin
ney, T. W. Made'.ey. G. W. Hancock ami
Senator Buck, to draft by-laws and present
the same to a meeting "of stockholders ot
the proposed corporation, to be held to
morrow niorning at 9 o'clock at the same
• place, then to organize.
The Convention then adjourned sine die.
After adjournment, many went forward
and subscribed for stock, and very many
were heard to say that they would not go
further with the movement, as it was not
for the relief of fruit-growers in general,
but only for the stockholders, and that the
grower had no voice in selling his fruit,
but the manager sold or shipped whenever
he pleased, and finally returned whatever
the rules of the corporation would permit
to be paid over.
Senator Stanford's Views on Its Shipment
and Sale.
In a recent interview on fruit shipping
Senator Stanford said : " The only way to
co-operate is to lump the shipment, and
each man receive a share of the net pro
ceeds commensurate with his shipment.
The objection as to pro-rating on good and
bad fruit is a fair point, but it can be easily
met. The Association must employ a
grader who has no interest in the ship
ments, and who will grade the quality of
each man's fruit. So much (lumber one,
so much number two; and it would be a
good plan to reject all below number two,
for that would raise the reputation of the
Association. Then it would be simple to
make an equitable division. Let each
shipper receive his proportion of number
one receipts as he shipped pounds of Dum
ber one fruit, and so as to number two.
The large dealers who have a monopoly of
the trade now are opposed to the co-oper
ative plan, and further, they are opposed
to any change. They say now that the
market East has had all the fruit it can
handle. I believe it has. too, at the high
rates that have been charged, for there are
mighty few of the . r >o,ooo,oou people East
who can afford to buy cherries at ninety
cents a pound. They don't desire any re
duction in rates, but that is their ali'ai:-.
•■The co-operative plan is distasteful to
dealers and speculators, because it puts the
fruit-growers on even terms with them
selves. The speculators are well advised
a- to Eastern markets. They know where
fruit can be sold and about what for. This
information is a great advantage to them;
it is their stock in trade, ami they speculate
upon it. If a co-operative society has
agents in the Kast to get this very inform
ation, the speculator will cease to have
things all his own way. lam confident
that much of the verbal opposition comes
from large dealers. They see in the co
operative plan a formidable competition,
and they see that it will, it worked out
property, give the highest price to the Cali
fornia fruit-raiser, and the lowest price
possible to the Eastern consumer, if a
fruit-grower is so situated that he is forced
to sell at the nearest market for what his
fruit will bring, no plan in the world will
put him on an equality with the man who
can afford to look further fora market. They
talk about quarter car and half car Bhip
ments, and a good deal of nonsense has
been uttered about that. The men who
have been talking about promiscuous ship
ments in parts of cars don t understand
the subject. And let me say now, that the
company does not care a cent how many
men's lots of fruit go to make up a car.
provided the ( ar lias only one des
tination. Suppose A, 15. C and D
each take a quarter of a car. A
consigns to Nebraska, B to Chicago, C to
St. Pan! and I) to Cincinnati. This is
on a fast train, remember, going through
on passenger time. We could not hold the
Whole train to unpack a quarter car, but
would have to side-truck the ear at Omaha
and unload the Nebraska lot. The car
would have to wait for the next train to
haul it up to St. Paul, and then more side
tracking and waiting before it could be
sent down to Chicago. I'd like to know
in what condition tiie lot for Cincinnati
would be when it got there, and I'd ask.
also, how C and D would like to have their
Bruit side-tracked while A and B's lots
were unloaded? We don't care how they
divide the cars up so long as the fruit in
one car all goes to the same point, but we
can't keep a train waiting to unload part of
a car. and any suggestions that we ran or
ought to do so is nonsense. If the fruit
growers of California cannot afford to take
the risk of their own shipments East, it
will surprise me to hear it. and il they can
so afford, it is surely better for them to
ship on :i plan of intelligent co-operation
than to dump their products on the market
indiscriminately and engage in a cutthroat
competition with each other. The only
other alternative is to leave the trade in
the hands of a few large dealers, who will
not pay the grower any more than the
lowest figure, and take advantage of super
ior information to grind him down and
have a greater interest in increasing their
profits than in increasing the trade and
developing the State, individual ship
mi nis must often be ill-advised and cannot
fail to result in loss."
