Th* fruit growers' convention held an
uneventful session yesterday morning,

players were on hand, but Hamlet and

Mr. Ford, did not materialize with
their essays, so the convention content

•■* Mr. George A. Raymond about his ex
cellent paper on curing white Asiatic
tigs. Nearly every question put to him
had been previously treated in his essay,
bnt ha was in a kindly mood, and lean
t ing against one of the boxes told all
that he knew.
Tbe crowd occupied and amused itself
in tbis manner for about one boar, but
as neither Mr. Ford nor Mr. KAtls came
to toe tbe footlights they very reluctant
ly let Mr. Raymond rest bis weary self.
Then the Pomona people took a tiand.
Mr. Howland arose with blood in bin
eye and inquired if Mr. Lelong had
written an article detrimental to the
olive industry. Secretary Lelong bad
received tbe tip the evening before,
however, and so was prepared, and
squared himself to the apparent satis
faction of tbe Pomonaites.
Mr. Masiin also took a hand iv liven
ing up the proceedings, and spoke upon
certain action taken a year ago by the
growers in regard to the revision of tiie
tariff upon fruits. Tbe matter wae gen
erally discussed, but resulted in noth
Mr. Berwick aleo asked Mr. Lelong
what he had done in regard to resolu
tions regarding tiie Nicaragua canal

Mr. Lelong again squared himself,
and stated tbat it bad been sent to con

meant. It would probably go no fur
Tbe two derelicts were also brought
np with a round turn by Mr. Sprague,
but the meeting was happily adjourned
by everybody taking a trip to Port Los

THR MOIININO SESSION.
At seven*niinutea to 10 o'clock yester
day morning Mr. 1,1 wood Cooper arose
and rapping upon tbe deck with a stick
called the convention to order.
He first drew attention to the death
of tbe former secretary of agriculture,
Jerry M. Rusk, and stated ttiat he bad
been tbe friend of the fruit growera and
suggested tbat the first work of the con
vention be the adoption of suitable reso
The following resolutions were re

M. Rusk, Das eoino to üb, and
Whereas, Secretary Rusk proved his
friendship to the fruit interests oi Cal
ifornia and assisted us in many ways,
therefore be it
Resolved, That we, the fruit growers
ot California, in convention assembled,
at Loa Angeles, this, the 1 day of No
vember, 1803, tender to the bereaved
family of our late and lamented secre
tary our sympathy and condolence in
tbeir great bereavement.
On motion of Mr. Berwick the resolu
tion was adopted by a rising vote and
ordered telegraphed to the family of the
' Tbe chair announced several essays,
but aa their authors did not respond Mr,
Geo. A. Raymond of Kern county read
a concise paper upon the Curing of the
White Asiatic Fig. Mr. Raymond stated
tbat he treated only of the white Asiatic
fig, and that grown upon his own place.
Ha first briefly told of the process of
picking and curing. He said that the
proper curing of the fig began with the
picking. The stem must be taken out,
the ekin must not be bruised nor the
fruit spoilt. Pick when the fruit is fully
ripe, but do not use those that have
dropped off of tbe tree. I diil'er here
from other growers, but 1 find that a
Bound fig will not drop but will dry on
the tree. Tbe tigs that drop are defec
tive. The figs are to be picked in small
wire baskets and should be placed care
fully on the trays with none touching.
The frnit should be rolled in from two
to three days.
Tbe defects are mainly black mold
and white and souring. After tbe bad
figs are the largest and handsomest but
nntil you have learned the trick I
would advise yon to break open and ex
amine any fig that is in the least außpi
cicioue. Let no one go into this busi
ness unless he can and will follow it out
thoroughly. Moreover, first ascertain
whether your locality is adapted to the
fig. Ai to packing do it to suit your
own fancy, only do it well and it attrac
tive form. Something original and
novel, if neat and pretty, or handsome,
will prove of great importance in selling
the goods. Do not imitate anything or
any person, either foreign or domestic,
aa then you can never establish your
brand and maintain your market."
At tbe conclusion of his essay the
discussion of tbe topic was held. The
matter was thoroughly gone over. Mr.
Raymond answering the many ques
tions put to him.
Mr. Ford of Banta Ana was to have
read an eßsay upon Walnuts and Mr.
Kelly upon the Thinning of Fruit. The
gentlemen were called for several times,
but did not respond, so their'papere
Mr. Howland of Pomona arose and
asked Secretary Lelong if it was true, aa
alleged, that he had written certain ar
ticles in the California Fruit Grower to
the effect that there was no profit in
olives, and tbat no one person without
wealth should attempt their cultiva
Mr. Lelong replied that he had never
made such any bucli statement or writ
ten any such article against tbe produc
tion of olives. At the convention last
year he had been asked to addreaa the
meeting and to write an eßßay concern
iag the olive industry. He wrote to
Many of the growers and catiaed thoir
answers to be read before the conven
tion. Many were to the effect that the
olive culture was very expensive.
Mr. Lelong said that he had always
maintained, and still did so, that it was
not well for people of limited means to
experiment with strange varieties of
olive trees, but should rather profit by
tbe experience of the larger growers.
He did not write the article in the
Wxnit Grower, «« U w»« the result of an
interview he bad had with tbe editor.
Mr. Lelong then read from a recent copy
of the Orower, in which tbe statement
tbat be was tbe author of the, article
was denied, and also putting Mr. Le
long in a proper light before the meet
Mr. Maslln of San Francisco then in
troduced the subject of a representative
at Washington to look after the revision
of tbe tariff on fruits. The matter was
discussed, but was finally dropped with
Mr. Sprague of Fairmont asked
whether there was not some means by
which the convention could get down to
to work. He bad never seen a conven
tion that lacked the necessary impetus
as thiß one did. There were several
persona down on the programme for
papers, but they tiad not appeared and
kept tbe members of the convention
Bitting like a set of schoolboys. He de
clared that an apology was due from
those derelicit gentlemen.
The chair, by way of explanation, re
marked that both were members of tbe
state horticultural commission, which
was also holding sessions tbat morning,
and were probably detained for that
Mr. Sprague replied that they had no
right to be t here, and Mr. Berwick
added tbat tbey should have at lent sent
tbeir papers to the secretary and had
them read instead of detaining tbe con
The matter of the excursion over the
Southern Pacific railroad to Fort Los
Angeles was then presented and all
those who desired to go were requested
to rise. Nearly everyone did so, and on
the suggestion of Mr. Lelong tbe con
vention decided to take a recess until
7:30 o'clock in tbe evening.
A very interesting session was held
last night. Tbe feature of the work waa
tbe report presented by Mr. Holman of
San Francisco. It was most exhaustive
in character and was declared by many
to be tbe finest thing of the kind they
bad ever heard.
The committee of which Mr. Holmau
is a member was appointed by tbe hor
ticultural convention of San Jose to look
into three phases of the eastern ship
ment of fruit. Tbe report was tbe re»
suit of apparent tireless efforts ancf
investigation upon their parts.
The convention was called to order at
7 :30 o'clocck by Mr. G. J. Griffith.
Tbe first business transacted was bear
ing the report of the railroad people in
regard to Rev. Perkins' patent for tbe
preservation of fruit in cars in transit.
The report was as follows:
"The two sides of this proposition are
theory and practice.
"Theoretically it would appear from
tbe foregoing report of Protessors Hil
gard and Smith that tbere is no reson
able doubt as to tbe correctness of Rev.
!A. T. Perkins' invention in its relation
jto the preserving of frnit by an even,
i low temperature and constant circula
tion of dry air.
"Practically obstacles may appear in
its proposed application wbicb can only
be removed by a series of thorough ex
periments. The theory, however, ia of
sufficient importance to be worthy of
demonstration to determine its practi
bility. Signed, R. Gray,
"G. T. M. Southern Pacific Co.
"W. A. BISSELL,
"G. T. M. Atlantic and Pacific."
A discussion was then held. Mr.
Adams favored Rev. Perkins' patent.
The latter was aleo present and attempt
ed to demonstrate to the convention
that his patent was practical. He of
course spoke of -the advantages to be
derived from and the money saved by
its introduction, but acknowledged that
nothing could be done towards it unless
the railroap companies took the proper
It was finally voted as the sense of the
convention that the railroad companies
be requested to assist Rev. Perkins in
perfecting his invention.
Secretary Lelong then read the follow
ing reply to their telegramof condolence
sent in the morning:
Hon. Ell wood Cooper, President Fruit Growers'
Association, Los Atigeks:
I am requeated by Mra. Ruak and
family to convey to your association
their heartfelt thanks for your kind res
olution of sympathy.
Henry Casron, Secretary.
MR. IIOLMAN REPORTS.
Mr. Hoi man oi Ban Francisco wae
next introduced. He remarked that
while hia report resembled a bird's nest,
they could probably get through with
it. His committee had been instructed
to exaiiuno into the following:
First—The chance of finding markets
in places not yet reached by the grower.
Second—For more rapid transporta
Third—Upon the cost of packing and
transporting fresh deciduous fruits in
carload lots, with the view of ascertain
ing the proportion received by growers
from good ealeß on shipments to eastern
Investigation of the first proposition
developed the fact that 49 cities of over
50,000 inhabitants received a total of
4372 carloads of fruit. This leaves fully
30 more cities of the same size where
fruit is not sent. While many of those
are in sections in which we can hope
for but little demand for onr fruit, but
enough, however, remain to show that
there is still a vast uuworked field for
In regard to obtaining faster trans
portation for their fruits the com
mittee had consulted with the
managers of the leading railroads
of the west aud all stated that the fault
lay with the eastern lines which did not
realize the importance of the industry
lor the necessity of rapid transporta-
I tion in fruit shipments.
| Mr. W. G. Luce, general freight agent
of tbe Union Pacific system, stated
that they had endeavored to arrange
with the Southern Pacific company to
make 3(1 hours from Sacramento to
Ugden, so that his line could make 75
hours from Ogden to Chicago.
With a view of ascertaining what time
could be made by diverting fruit ship
ments at Opden via the Bio Grande
Western, the Denver and Rio Grande and
the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific
railroads, Mr. Rowley of the committee
was informed by W. H. Snedaker, the
western representative of the Rio Grande
Western, that his road waß prepared to
give .California fruit shipments fast
service in trains rff 8 to 10 cars from
Ogden to Pueblo in 36 to 40 hours.
In this connection Mr. Frank McCar
mick, the western representative of the
Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific, stated
that his road would co-operate with their
connections. The road above mentioned
giving quick tervice, naming 42 to 44
hours irom Pueblo to Chicago. His
would mane the time by the route 78 to
84 hours from Ogden to Chicago. Thus
it will be seeu that if the Southern
Pacific Railroad company will co-operate
with its eastern connections in the mat
ter of reducing time -in transporting
fresh fruit to eastern markets a very
material reduction in the time con
sumed in transit as compared with the
record of the past season namely, 111 to
116 hours irom Sacramento to Chicago,
LOS ANGELES HERALD* THURSDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 23, 1803
as against 192 to 210 for the fruit ship
ments of 1893, will result. Incidentally
the committee investigated the possibil
ity of a reduction in freight rates but
met with but little encouragement.
The Southern Pacific company claims
that it is now moving fruit at the lowest
profitable' rate, and tbat tbe mileage
rates from California are now much
lower and the service better than those
from the Florida fruit districts. The
only apparent hope for lower freight
rates lies in tbe replacement oi the pres
ent cumbersome system of refrigeration
with some appliance equally effective
and of less weight.
In regard to tbe third clause, the
committee wrote to many fruit growers
and shippers for information, and are
able to present the following table:
Feachea, boxes 9 .04
I'ears, '• M&X
Cherries, " 49
Apricots, " M
Apricots, crates 70
Plums, boxes 70
These figures are based on shipments
in refrigerator cars and represent the
average cost of all expenses incidental
to fruit shipments from tne orchard to
eastern purchasers, cost and cultivation
and value of fruit not being taken into
After giving the above results of its in
vestigation, the committee then sums up
the situation as follows:
Referring again to tbe first object of
our inquiry, namely, the question of
putting California fresh fruits into
markets not now reached, tbere ie small
satisfaction in tbe statistics which we
have presented. That in the vaßt re
gion comprising the populous states of
Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire,
Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New
York, Conneaticut, New Jersey, Penn
sylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia,
West Virginia, North Carolina—we sell
a good yearly 1370 carloads of freßb
fruits; that in another great region,
comprising Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky,
Tennessee and the southern third of
Illinois, we cell only 138 carloads ; that
there is a list of 40 or
more towns in the east, each
of 50,000 inhabitants and upwards to
which California fruits never go direct —
these facta are interesting enough, but
they have no real value save aa they
confirm the familiar statement that our
products are not fairly put into their
natural markets; that the districts iv
which our fruits are offered to consum
ers are almost insignificant when comp
ared with the wider districts where it
is wanted" but to which it never goes.
These facts lead up to and point dis
tinctly to one conclusion, namely, tbat
the niethpds of distribution currently
practiced are pitifully inadequate and
The present method of maintaining
our fresh fruits is the dispatch of car
load lots to a few central points, Where
they are sold at auction for local'
consumption or, possibly, for reahipment
in smaller lota to smaller contiguous
communities. No direct shipments are
made to points where the local demand
will not justify the sending of a whole
carload; and it is for this reason that
so many large towns never get a taste of
California fruit. Since tbey cannot
take a car load of 24,000 pounds then we
cannot serve them at all. • We are told
by experts that from a railroad stand
point thiß is the only practical method
of shipment; that to dispatch a single
car with say two or more distinct con
signments for two or more distinct
points lying near each other or connect
ing lines of road, is practically out of
the question. It would be aB preaump
tiouß as it would be rude to question the
expert ability of tbe gentlemen from
whom our committee baa made inquiry
or tbe sincerity of their replies; but we
believe and claim tbat an utter miscon
ception of tbe conditions and requiie
mentß of the fruit traffic "Ties
at the foundation of tbeir theo
ries. A system of shipment irom
tbe places of production to central
points, with reabipmeut. from these de
pots to minor points, will no well enough
for miscellaneous imperishable commo
dities ; but in the case of fresh fruits it
is totally insufficient. Tbe application
of this system to California fresh fruits
and the eastern markets involves prac
tical elimination ot all but the very
large centers from the field of consump
tion, and so contracts the volume of onr
salea. How tbia effects the producer
need not be told. When our expert
friends declare tbat it is not possible to
ship direct to points which cannot take
a full carload, they have in mind the
conditions and regulations which now
prevail on the railroad lines with which
we deal. And tbis biingß us to the
point tbat the railroads have taken no
atepa in the way of providing a suitable
equipment for tiie California freßh fruit
traffic. Apparently they do not realize
the magnitude of tbe trade nor
understand its requirements. To
this great special traffic the very
life of which depends upon their co
operation, they give only such rough
and-tumble facilities as belong to a mis
cellaneous freighting business.
Now i,f the roads had for the California
fresh fruit traffic special cars built with
compartments; if they had a sufficient
number of these cars to meet all de
mands promptly; ii they bad locomo
tives in sufficient numbers to haul tbem
promptly and rapidly; if fruit traitiß
were given the same track righta allowed
to cxproßß trains —if these suggestions
were roalities, does any man of sense
doubt tbat some things which the ex
perts declare impracticable would be
very Bimply and easily done?
For.example, would it not be possible
under such conditions to load a Bix-com
partment car at Vacaville or Ontario
with six separate lots of fruit for the six
cities of Tiffin, Mansfield, Canton,
Zanesville, Columbus and Springfield,
all in the state of Ohio, and to make the
deliveries in a satisfactory wayT Does
anybody doubt that it would?
Si-It ia our judgment that to reach new
markets aome euch combination of
equipment aud train service is essential;
but it would be utopion to expect it to
come of its own motion. Its natural
and essential prerequisite ia the creation
at thia end of the route of a shipping
Byetem which will require and exact
such service. The great express com
panies, not the railroads have made
the American expreasage eyetem with
its messengers at every train, its depot
at every railway station, aud ite distrib
uting servant in every village. As the
necessities of the service grew, the rail
roads under the pressure of specific de
. The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.—No Ammonia; No Alum.
Used in Millions of Homes— 40 Years the Standard
mand provided tbem; but if they had
been left to their own devices, the great
expressage system would never have been
brought into existence. And so it will be
with us. So long as we leave our neces
sities without organization to plead
fairly for themselves, we shall have
just the sort of service always given to
an unsympathetic traffic. When we
have created a shipping system ready to
operate as tbe express companies do,
then we shall secure facilities for trans
portation proportionate to the magni
tude and value of our fruit interest.
Opinions differ widely as to the right
policy of creating such an organization.
We are told by persons who are entirely
sincere, that tbe producer is outside of
bis natural and proper sphere when he
undertakes to be bis own marketer;
tbat like a certain famous brand of sar-
Baparilla fruit selling ie a thing pecu
liar to itself, and tbat it must be
left to experts; or, in other
words, since fruit production is one
thing and fruit marketing another, that
tbe producer should stick to his orchard
and leave the distribution of hie product
to tbe commission merchant. Now we
agree that frnit marketing is a special
trade; that it calls for business training
and acquaintance with markets too, but
we deny tbat these merits are found
with tbe commission men more than
among tbe producers themselves. As a
matter of fact, after many years of trial
tbe commission system has failed. It
does now just what it did in the begin
ning, namely, it sells our fruits at auc
tion in a few general markets. It has
not like the great oyster companies,
like the great express companies,
like the Standard Oii company—
not to mention a dozen other equally
notable instances —establßhed agencies
away from the centers and bo widened
tbe field of fruit consumption. Tbe
inefficiency of the commisßiou-honse
system is demonstrated by tbe iact that
after many years of exclusive control
of our business, our products are still
unknown, or at least not commonly
sold, in the larger part of tbe eastern
market. And the inefficiency of it is
not lesß dear than the cost of it. Gen
erally speaking, the commission interest
ia foreign to as. It has only a commer
cial relation to ue, about- tbe
same sort as we have with the
Sandwich islands. It is under
such conditions tbat our work
should be well done. And in our judg
ment it will not be well done until the
California spirit is in it. It is our pro
found conviction that the future welfare
of the fruit interest of California as it is
dependent upon the eastern market,
rests upon the co-operative support of a
state exchange operated in tbe direct
interest of the fruit growers, and
having ita agencies not only in
the great cities but throughout the
whole vast region beyond the
Rocky mountains. What Adams & Co.
can do, what Wei Is- Fargo & Co. can do,
what the Standard Oil company can do,
what a firm of Yankee shoemakers can
do, surely tbe great horticultural inter
est of California can do. We are told
tbat suitable men cannot be found to
work for an association; that expert
commercial ability can only be developed
by the interest of personal ownership,
and we don't believe it. The express
companies and tbe railroad companies
seem to be served by paid agents with
ability and devotion, and tbere is no
reason why we cannot find men
to do our work in the same
spirit. The career of the Cali
fornia Fruit union proves that tbe
co-operation principle can in fact be
successfully applied; and what, let us
ask, would be easier than tbe evolution
of such a system as we suggest from
such a good foundation as tbis Bame
Fruit union affords?
For tbe suggestions herein embodied
we claim no credit for originality. If
nobody ever bad our thoughts of them
before we should distrust our own judg
ment. But we have only set down
things long ago suggested and familiar
to all. As regards the plan of shipment
direct to minor points in broken loads in
compartment cars, so competent a rail
road man as Mr. W. H. Mills long ago
suggested and approved it. As to tbe
suggestion for general co-operation, that
happily seems in a fair way to be made
a teality. Tbe two things together your
committee believes are the beet hope of
the California horticultural interest.
The report was applauded long and
loudly. Mr. Adams jumped to his feet
and declared the report to be the finest
be had ever listened to, and moved that
a vote of thanks be extended to the gen
tlemen of the committee; b)bo that it
be printed in special pamphlet form.
About every other person in the hall
seconded thia motion and it was carried
amid great enthusiasm.
Mr. B. N. Rowley of San Francisco,
blbo on tiie committee with Mr. Holman
prosented some additional figures.
The committee appointed to draw up
a plan for co-operation among the fruit
growers presented the following report,
which was accepted:
Your committee appointed to consider
the question of co-operative fruit mar
keting, have had the subject under con
sideration and respectfully report as fol
We are satisfied that the conditions
which have already brought actual dis
aster upon some branches of the fruit
industry of California will, if unchecked,
speedily bring similar disaster upon
all other branches.
We believe that the only remedy is
that the growers shall themselves as
sume the marketing of their own pro
duct and that the time has now como to
apply tbat remedy.
We heartily approve and endorse the
methods of co operation already adopted
by the citrus growers of .Southern
California and the dried fruit producers
of Santa Clara county, which we find
substantially alike in principle, differ
ing only in detail to meet tbe different

We regard it of the most importance
that tiie «reat co-nuerative movement
now in progress otiouid be go directed
tbat all interests involved should work
not only iv harmony but in actual con
sultation witb each other.
To this end we strongly approve the
movement originated by the state horti
cultural society for the organization of
a state fruit exchange, and urge all in
dividual growers and all co-operative
societies to unite in its support, trusting

AT PRIVATE SALE!
In 10, 20, 40 and 80-acre farms, to suit purchasers, on credit. Terms at low rate of interon
THE PROPERTY WK OFFER COMPRISES THE WELL-KNOWN CHINO RANCH, IN THE
center of which ls the town of Chino, on tbe line of tne Southern tactile railroad, about,
three miles south of Pomona and Ontario. Su .rounding tbe properly is the valley port on of
the Chino Ranch, comprising Id,ooo acres lying north and east of Chino creek, subdivided Into
10-acro tracts, which have a gradual decline toward the soalh aud southwest, giving ample
natural drainage for successful cultivation.
Iv 1891 the Beet Sugar Company was organized and the refinery built and put in operatlia
at Chino, in a central portion with reference to the property. The result obtained from the
operation of the factory for the few years past shows a remarkable degree of adaptability of the
soil to Unsuccessful cultivation of the isugar Beet, both in amount of production aud Im pt
centago of saccharine matter, and also in the efficient capacity of the manufacturing plant.
The factory handled during the present season of 189:1 100!) tons of beets per day, aud have
from 600 to GOO tons per day coming in continuously for the entire campaign, covering a period
of nearly four mouhts. It ls proposed now to increase the capacity of the factory by the ereo
tlon of an additional building and machinery to suit the requirements of Increasing produc
tion. The returns for tne present campaign have been a total yield of over 15,000.000 pounds
of sugar, which have bseu shipped ont as crude sugar to ha retined elsewhere.
Under a direct and specific contract between Mr. Gird and tho Chino Valley Heet Sugar com
pany, a corporation which Instituted and operates the Meet Sugar inn ustry, they agreed to pur
chase from Mr. tiird or his successors all the beets grown on the ranch for years to come, and at
the present date, about November 1, 1893, bafore tbe commencement of the next season, a
fixed price is established that the factory will pay for the beets at maturity next season. This
insures the planter iv tne market for his crop, and with tbe price that is tixed, befote he takes
any risk in tho matter or make] the flrat move towards turning over the ground.
Possibly there is no other branch of industry wherj calculations for future results can be
made so readily or to correctly calculated upon, and returns realized in so short a time as In the
cultivation of the Sugar Btet under such auspices.
While speaking particularly in regard to the important industry of beet growing for the,
manufacture of soger, estimates of general fruits should not be lost sight of, as a great portion
of the laud is especially adapted to
• Deciduous Fruits and Deciduous Trees.
Orange groves planted on portions of the Ranch hre coming forward, and olives, tigs, aprl
cots, prunes, pomegranates and berries, in fact California fruits of all kinds, seem indigenous
to the soil. It is alio demonstrate*! tbat corn, barley, wheat, and iv fact all the cereals and
vegetables, flourish in this soil aud attain a high degree of perfection.
The townsite of Chißo, located at a convenient point with relerence to all portions of the
ranch, is a flouiishing California town, with telegraph, telephone aud express offices, Fchools
and churches. Means of communication and transportation are ample. The Southern Padfic
rallruad runs lis main line direct into Chino, and is four miles distant from Pomona aud Onta
rio, on the main overland line, and Iv addition ls the proposed extension which ls now assured
from Pomona, through Chino, to.Bouth Riverside ana Elsluore.
The following area few of the advantageous features of the Cliino valley: First, the culti
vation of the Sugar Beet, which insures a profit: IT* tons is an -.veiage crop, but 20 tons is not
unusual: wnich is received by the factory at a fixed pflne of $1.50 per ton, which during this
present season of 1893 has averaged the grower from tfHo to .?<io per acre net, and clean above
all expense of working the ground, planting and harvesting the crop and delivering at the
