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

Webster, Vacaville; A. Anderson, Sui
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
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.
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
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
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. /
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
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.
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.
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
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
The following directors for the asso

Yuba City. T. R. Buck of Vacaville. H.

Messrs. Salisbury, Earl, Weinstock,
Buck and Martin were elected as the

company selected by the receiver whose
fruit is to be sold can sell in this room,
providing said auctioneer or auction

displayed at the terminals. Same shall
be in charge of the receiver, and shall

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'
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.

Attacks Domestic Animals and Causes
the Arrest of His Master.
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.

A Little
A little knowledge is not a dan
gerous thing when it saves money,
is it ?
There are hundreds of men who
read the Record-L'nion w ho have no
idea of the perfection attained in the
making of Ready-made Clothing.
They do not know that many ot the
suits which they see on the backs ol
their friends, and which they think
came from high-priced tailors,
came from here. A little knowledge
of our clothes and prices would be
certainly a revelation to these men.
We are specially proud of our $io,
$15 and $20 suits. Look at them if
you look at any.
LOT I—At1 —At a recent underwriters'
fire salvage sale arranged by the Sa
vage Wrecking Agency our New York
buyer secured a mixed lot of Silks,
including a few Indias and a variety
of Striped Wash Silks (bestquality),
which we shall otfer in this sale.
There are about twelve patterns,
and. as far as we can see. the Silks,
except for being slightly soiled on
the edges on outside ot the pieces,
are in perfect condition. Rather
than to assort into various prices,
according to damage, we shall make
one price tor all the silks from the
lire, namely.
17c yard.
LOT 2 —This lot contains Checked
Summer Silks, Changeable Glace
Taffetas and a number of odd pieces
of Persian Silks. We cannot de
scribe well this lot. but if you are in
terested be present when the sale
opens. s a l e price, 48c.
LOT 3 —Black Figured Silks,
handsome patterns, heavy quality,
perfect in every way for skirts and
suits. s a j e Price, 67c.
LOT 4 —Black Satin Brocades,
well worth $i 25 a yard, and in ex
cellent designs. A rare waist, suit
or separate skirt silk. Must be seen
to know the value we are giving.
Sale Price, 75c.
LOT s—Not5 —Not the usual narrow
width, but 24 inches wide. Novelty
Persian Silks, with new lace and
satin stripes in combinations of helio
trope, gray, green and rose colors.

pretty patterns. s a | e p r ice, 59c.
