It is quite natural for the violently-partisan

.; cr.i.'lcvti)ii. The county committee is in the
fcncliuildin husiness, and of retiree it wants
to build up just ais strong a fence as possible.
' Hut this is not at nil the pint of view of the
community in general. What the city demands
id office-holders named on their merits, not on
their political records. If the Democratic coun
ty, machine leaders can put Democrats in office
who are just an efficient as the Uquihiicans they
are tryiujr to put out, the public would not piar-
rcl with .their methods. But the actions of the
county committee during the past month haw
not been such as to breed confidence m its judg
juent of efficiency.
It wax i proposed to put a capable fire-thief

ident of the growers'
association, W. T. Clark,
told how the system has been built up:
Having obtained something tangible to sell, Clark
decided upon a "system" which he would try to es
tablish. His first step was to go direct to St. Paul
and lay before James J. Hill an outline of the plan.
The master railroad and empire builder was. quick
to Ffo the value of the scheme. He readily consent
ed to pive a letter to Mr. Van Veachton, president of
ti e largest bank in Chicago, which has resources ag
gregating 1250,000,000. The big financier was re
quested by the railroad magnate to lend every pos
sible assistance to the Wenatchee Valley Fruit Grow
ers' Association. Then things happened in quick suc
cession. Clark went to Chicago, told the bank his plan,
asked for letters to leading banks in principal cities
of the east. Armed with these, he and Manager Co
burn, accompanied by Directors Grant Paton and
Harry Shotwell, proceeded to establish a selling sys
tem. Each local banker was asked to name the most
reliable wholesaler of fruits and groceries in his
city. In every instance the local bank agreed to ad
vance money to this local agent, so great was the
confidence reposed in the agent selected by the asso
ciation. Twenty of these agents in as many large cities of
cast were secured. Each of them agreed to han
dle a specified number of carloads. More agents
cculd have been named, but the pool of 1,700 carloads
was subscilbed by these twenty. The association
has no more fruit to sell, but could have handled
double the amount received.
Arrangements for storage were made in Duluth,
Kansas City and SL Louis chiefly, the idea being to
store tlie apples on this side of the consumer in or
der to take advantage of the storage in transit priv
ilege and deliver a carload of apples 'anywhere in
the United States' on twenty-four hours' notice, di
rect from cold storage, and on a through rate from
Agents are allowed 10 cents per box without ref
erence to sale prices. This amount, added to the 5
cents allowed for association expense in assembling
tbe fruit and supervising its distribution, making 15
c?nts in all, is the total expense between the. grower
aud the retailer. In other words, 15 cents and the
retailer's profit compose the whole amount which
must be added to the producer's price in order to de
termine what the consumer must pay for a Wenat
chee applet .. " .
Association directors alone have tbe power to fix
-: .the wholesale prices. The management receives
: dally tt ports from" Kb agents and they advise what
-prices will get best returns, bnt they get exactly the
same profit, 10 cents per box, no matter what the
'Bale price. They have nothing invested. Their only
direct Interest is io sell as much fruit as possible.
,X This., plan deters the date of settlement for the
grower bnt .it Is the ley to the proposition. Final
settlement is not possible for ihe grower until spring,

FARMERS CEITINu -DOWN ,T0- SYSTEM
: j Homesteaders and small farmers of the ter
ritory are coming closer and closer to the prob
lem of controlling their own distribution as well
as ; their own production. On this principle such
great private businesses as those of the Armour
-Packing Company and the Standard Oil Com
pany liave been built. The financiers behind the
businesses saw the wisdom of eliminating the
middleman. Now all over the country, fanners
are combining in associations of various kinds
with the object of handling their products from
tlie time soil is broken until the checks for the
sate pass through the banks.
r A notable development of this principle is to
1 be' found in the organization of fruit-growers of
-Wenatchee, in the eastern part of the state of
Washington. This section, rapidly coming to
the front as the greatest apple.-produeing coun-
v. try in the world, has had its troubles with mid-.
'dlemen, but finally the formation of a "pool"
among the producers allowed the growers to get
the maximum' of profit from their work.
V The story of how this was accomplished is
-'inspiring. Uawaii, of course, has not the same
conditions in the way of many markets in big
