EVERYTHING IS HARMONIOUS.
Success of the Fruit-Growers' and Ship pers' Association Secure. Plan* Are Thoroughly Matured, and H. Weinstock Goes East to Es tablish Auction Booms. A meeting of the California Fruit- Growers' and Shippers' Association was held yesterday at the office of the Chamber of Commerce. Among those present were: W. J. Wilson, Newcastle; F. H. Buck, Vacaville; A. Block, San Jose; H. A. Fairbanks, Sacramento; N. R. Salsbury, Sacramento; J. P. Stabler, Yuba City; E. T. Earl, Sacramento; R. D. Stephens, Sacramento; H. P. Stabler. Yuba City; James Martin, San Jose; A. T. Hatch, Suisun; Z. Anderson, San Jose; Henry Armbrust, Stockton; J. A. Webster, Vacaville; A. Anderson, Sui sun. President Weinstock presided. The resolutions passed by the Com mittee of Conference appointed at the Fruit-Growers' Convention last fall, which met in San Francisco last Wed nesday, were taken up. They are as follows: Whereas, At the State Convention of Fruit-growers held in Sacramento, No vember IS, 1895, a Committee of Confer ence, consisting of seven growers and shippers, representing the various ele ments engaged in the fresh fruit trade, were appointed, with Instructions from the convention to harmonize existing differences between shippers and grow ers, with the view of establishing con solidated auction sale rooms in the va rious Eastern markets for the sale of California fresh fruits; and whereas, said Committee of Conference having thoroughly gone into the matter, and having found that the consolidated salesrooms established on neutral ground convenient to the various rail road terminals In each city are not alone entirely practical and desirable, but for the welfare of the fruit interests are imperative; be it therefore Resolved, That this Committee of Conference do hereby call upon the California Fruit-Growers' and Shippers' Association to establish such consoli dated auction salesrooms upon neutral ground in the various Eastern cities, said salesrooms to be under the abso lute control of the California Fruit- Growers' and Shippers' Association, and made free and open to all buyers, auctioneers, receivers and shippers of California fresh fruits upon a fair and equitable basis to all under such rules and regulations as the association may establish; and be it further Resolved, That this Committee of Conference, representing as it does the growers and shippers of fresh fruit of the State of California, hereby earnest ly call upon all growers, shippers in car load lots, and upon all co-operative so cieties and fresh fruit shipping com panies whose names are not yet enrolled, to become members of of the California Fruit-Growers' and Shippers' Associa tion, and to lend their fullest and heart- It st support to said association in its endeavors to carry out the desire of the growers and shippers of California to establish and maintain consolidated auction salesrooms free and open to all. and to continue the publication of daily bulletins, tabulating the daily shipments of fruit for the guidance of growers and shippers. A long discussion followed the putting of the question on their adoption. A. Block, the veteran fruit-grower of Santa Clara, favored the resolutions strongly and said he hoped if there was any opposition to them, that it would be expressed now. Frank H. Buck of Vacaville was strongly in favor of their adoption. It meant, he said, that the association should establish its own auction sales rooms, have its own auctioneers and select the railroads over which fruit should be shipped. The fruit-growers will have absolute control over their products and he could see no valid ob jections to be urged against it. He hoped that any objections entertained by anyone against it would be made at this time, so that If the Idea was a bad one, it<-ould be abandoned. N. R. Salsbury, representative of Por ter Bros., declared himself heartily in accord with the resolutions and said he would do all in his power to carry them out. If adopted. Henry Armbrust of Stockton was also In favor of it, as was E. T. Earl, of the Earl Fruit Company, who said his com pany would support them heartily. Alden Anderson of the Suisun Fruit- Growers' Association, W. J. Wilson of Newcastle, J. Z. Anderson of San Jose and others expressed themselves to the same effect. H. P. Stabler of Yuba City said that If there was any money In shipping he wanted to ship, and he was therefore In favor of the resolutions, as were the growers of Sutter County. He believed that the action of the association was directly in favor of the small shipper. Mr. Fairbanks said that what he wanted was that matters should be ar ranged so that all could be on an equality, and the proposition made seemed to him to be In that direction, and therefore he was in favor of it. STEPHENS OPPOSES IT R D Stephens said that his Idea was that th*» proper way to do was to start fair; to bfl honorable and honest In all <3'>Hllngß. and not to deceive people. He wculd attack the resolutions on that ground. Last November the Chairman en.] he had a tilt Offer this same matter. If the association starts out to misrep resent matters, it would be well to ■watch It all along the line, for if it •will deceive In one thing it will In Others. He quoted from the proceedings of the convention last fall, and said that the resolutions referred to were passed on one day and annulled on the rit-xt. and the subsequent action con trolled on It. For that reason, the sen timent expressed In the resolutions is misleading. Mr. Buck had stated that the frult irrowers would have absolute control over their fruit and, so far as able, the principles contained in the resolution would be enforced. He thought the gen tlemen w-ho prepared the resolutions did rot lrrtend to mislead, but they were lia ble to land the association tomewhere that had not been contemplated. He spoke at length on the first reso lutions passed, dissecting them, and twild that the present ones do not repre sent facts. As Mr. Buck says, If they are adopted, the organization should have full control. By these meetings and discussions much good will result to the growers and to the State at large. He reoalled facts relating to the Cali fornia Fruit Union, under which, he eaid, after the fruit reached Sacra mento, the grower entirely lost his con trol over It. At that time, Mr. Earl was an Insignificant factor In the trade, but they went Into the fight and won It, and the union made the concessions that the growers asked, in allowing them to se lect their points for shipment. Last year this association decided to ship over one railroad, but It did not work, as there were two auctions and two roads and the opposition secured good time and good service. Therefore, through these meetings and discussions the small fruit-growers are benefited. He claimed that where there are two auctions, better prices are obtained, as was shown in New York. If this be true, it redounds to the benefit of both the association and the opposition. He was told now that he could ship over any road and have any auc tioneer he wanted. He was glad that he would be accorded that privi lege. He was among friends here whom he had known for years, but he did not want to surrender his property to their control. He had agents at points that were perfectly satisfactory to him and did ! not want to give it to agents at points selected by the association. He was j told that he could do as he pleased, but, |in fact, he could not do so. The rules I would bar out free agencies. He did I not object to the one auction plan, but did not want to surrender all his rights : except that of selling at the associa : tion's rooms. He never yet had known great interests concentrated under one control that did not eventually fall into the hands of a few. He advised that the resolutions be amended, and that the references to the State Convention be stricken out. / WEINSTOCK ANSWERS. Mr. Weinstock said that Mr. Stephens was making charges by innuendo that were not pleasant to hear or to bear. Someone was charged with changing the resolutions and with garbling facts. He thought if any misrepresentations had been made, that Mr. Stephens was as guilty as anyone else. He read at length from the report of the convention Mr. Stephens' remarks |or. the resolutions there passed, and his reply to them. Mr. Stephens says now that the resolutions were rescinded the next day, and that the fact is not stated in these resolutions. He denied this and j read from the next day's proceedings. IHe denied that the preamble was | stricken out by the convention. It was 'withdrawn by him, because Mr. Steph ens objected to it. He read the reso lutions as finally adopted, appointing a committee of conference of seven to try to harmonize all the conflicting inter ests. STEPHENS INSISTS. Mr. Stephens said that it afforded him pleasure to enlighten his friend, the Chairman, and show him what really was the case. The withdrawal of the preamble became really the ac tion of the convention, because only their votes could carry it out. It being a subse-quent action, it really rescinded the previous day's action as much as if it had been done in another conven tion. If these resolutions had accorded with the last action of the convention, the association would not have heard from him in opposition to them. It was because only the first resolution was alluded to. They are misleading, and have been printed in the Sacra mento and San Francisco papers and have gone all over the State for the fruit-growers to read. He wanted to put himself right. If they would amend the resolutions so as to give him control of his own property, he would vote for them, but not otherwise. He ■was free now, and free to change agents at any time if he was not suited. VIEWS OF OTHERS. Mr. Hatch said that he was in favor of only one auction-room in any city where it can be maintained. It seemed to him that the association should act on the resolutions, one way or the other. He felt like Mr. Stephens, that he would like to have something to I say about his own goods, but !if they were not sold under one j roof, and he could prevent their j going to any place where that was not j the case, he would do so. He would I like to see the fruit-growers unanimous. Mr. Salsbury said that in New York the disposition among auctioneers had j been not to sell in one room, but he had received a dispatch yesterday from Brown & Seecomb, stating that they were willing to sell in one room, or do whatever else was agreeable. If Mr. Stephens would examine into the sub ject, he thought he would agree that the resolutions were simply to take the gcods to the point of concentration for a market. John R. Adams, of the Union Auction rooms at Chicago, was called on by the President to explain the workings of one and two auctions. He said that the fruits shipped to New York would always bring the most money, because the best fruit is always shipped there, and there is more money ; there than in Chicago, although there j are not as good facilities for handling j it. He did not think that two auctions j brought more money for the fruit, but only more buyers. You can get better ! prices with 300 buyers than with thirty. \ An auctioneer can work up a furor and j keep it up so that the bidders will bid well on the last lota In order to avoid being bitten by a fall in prices. There may be a feeling where buy ] ers are split up, but one auction makes better prices, because it concentiates I the buyers. It is necessary to have a j continuous sale, however, and never let the buyers leave till the sale is over. Another important point is the j order of sales. Let auctioneers be pres ! eat and ready to succeed each other ! quickly, and put them on their mettle jU) keep the crowd together. He thought that by Mr. Weinstock's plan growers could ship over # any road or to anyone. Mr. Frost of the Independent Auction j Company of Chicago said he was forced into his present position. He had not been handling green fruit and had j come to California merely on an edu i catlonal trip and was getting his edu- I cation very rapidly. If the plan dis i cussed to-day meets the approval of the growers he was not here to oppose , it. The interest of the growers was his 1 own also. His idea in coming here was jto consolidate into an independent j union. He thought Buck's idea of con trol could not lie carried out. He be • Heved the association would find that jlt had a ae] arat< house on its hands In | each plat".- and that they could not be ! handled from here. Mr. Martin of the California Green j ami Dried Fruit Company thought the matter was coming into such a shape that the lines now laid down would be such that his company would be willing to work on them. They wanted a fair, equitable show to do business. It was a vital point that shippers should alter nate In the sales. The largest shippers would have an advantage, but such a plan would be fair and equitable and he would not oppose It. Otherwise he would stand with Mr. Stephens. Mr. Salisbury said that Boston men are now willing to sell In the general auction-room. Last year this was not the oase. Mr. Stephens said that he did not want to be called on to abandon his agent in New York, or surrender his rights. He was not opposed to one auc tion, and If the resolutions were put in satisfactory shape he would try to pull his agents in, to act in harmony with the association. Mr. Weinstock said the statement of Mr. Stephens was a fair one, and there was no reason why it should not be concurred in. SACRAMENTO DAILY RECORD-TOTTON, SUNDAY, APRIL 12, 1896. Messrs. Martin, Fairbanks and Ste phens were then elected members, with the reservation that if their companies or agents did not concur they could re tire from membership without preju dice. After various amendments the follow ing resolution was read by Secretary Buck and adopted unanimously, In ac cordance with the recommendation of the Conference Committee: Resolved, That It is the sense of the Fruit-growers' and Shippers' Associa tion that directors of the association be authorized to proceed to establish con solidated auction salesrooms upon neu tral ground In the various Eastern cit ies, said salesrooms to be under the ab solute control of the California Fruit growers' and Shippers' Association, and made free and open to all buyers, auc tioneers, receivers and shippers of Cali fornia fresh fruits on a fair and equit able basis to all under such rules and regulations as the association may es tablish. The following directors for the asso ciation were then elected for the ensu ing year: H. Weinstock of Sacramento, A. Block of Santa Clara, N. R. Salis bury of Sacramento, H. P. Stabler of Yuba City. T. R. Buck of Vacaville. H. A. Fairbanks of the Producers' Fruit Company, Joseph Martin of the Green and Dried Fruit Company, E. T. Earl of Sacramento and A. Schnabe! of New castle. The association then adjourned and the directors organized by electing offi cers as follows: H. Weinstock. Presi dent; N. R. Salisbury, Vice-President; D. O. Mills & Co.. Treasurer. Messrs. Salisbury, Earl, Weinstock, Buck and Martin were elected as the Executive Committee. The following rules for the governing of the auctions and auction-rooms were adopted: Rule I—This auction-room isabsolute ly open and free to all buyers who can conform to the terms of sale. Rule 2—Time of holding the sale shall be left to the discretion of the receivers and auctioneers, except that after the sale commences it shall be continuous until all the fruit to be sold on that day has bc?en disposed of. Rule 3—Any auctioneer or auction company selected by the receiver whose fruit is to be sold can sell in this room, providing said auctioneer or auction company subscribe to the rules estab lished by this association. Rule 4—All fruit tc be sold shall be displayed at the terminals. Same shall be in charge of the receiver, and shall be ready for inspection at least one hour before the sale commences. Rule s—Fruit shall be catalogued In a manner that is entirely equitable to all receivers, and the different receivers will be given alternate cars on the cata logue. Rule G—The premises will be fur nisher! free by the California Fruit- Growers' and Shippers' Association, but the auctioneers shall pay between them the cost of porterage, or Janitorship, and rent of telephone, light and heat. Rule 7—Before making returns to re ceivers the auction company shall with hold per car to be remitted to the California Fruit-Growers' and Shippers' Association. It being the unanimous wish of the Executive Committee, H. Weinstock consented to go East to select the auc tion-rooms, and was given full author ity in the matter. He will start on his mission immediately, as no time is to be lost. "Brightest and Ablest." (From the Dixon Tribune.) The Sacramento "Record-Union" is now published every day in the week.

A savage bulldog yesterday attacked an inoffensive cat in the neighborhood of X street, between Fourth and Fifth. Officer Taylor attempted to persuade the brute to quit, and partly wore out his club in the effort. But the dog was out for cats and re fused to let go until he discovered a setter dog, which had stopped to see the sport. He then released poor Tab and fell upon the inquisitive setter, which he proceeded to chew up in ap proved style. In the meantime Officer Taylor had demolished the remainder of his club in beating the brute, which was finally driven off. The sequel to the affray was that John Nathan, owner of the dog, was arrested and charged with having vio lated the ordinance recently passed forbidding the owners of bulldogs to allow them to run at large In the streets. Nathan will have to tell his story to Justice Davis to-morrow. ESTATES UNSETTLED. An Accounting Asked of the Estate of the Late G. F. Bronuer. W. B. Miller, Public Administrator, by his attorneys, C.
