Apple Packing and Prices
Appl_. p ck~ ... ...... ........
Editor Missoulian:
'Bitter Root fruit brings good
prices." This was the heading of a
letter published in the Missoulian of
last Sunday by C. L. Longwell, the
head puish of the so-called Montana
Fruit Distributors organization. As l
the writer prevaricates the truth in,
such overwhelming measures, it de
volves upon nme to set the readers of
the Missoulian aright upon what hap-!
penel. In the first place 1 was in
dihced tIo join the association believing
the, sYsteml was a good one which I he
lice e today -would be all right if con
du< led upon legitimate lines biy well
mneaning, competent people.
My first car of fruit was a car of
Duchess apples. Mr. Longwell sent mei
by request, his oiwn packers, to put
up m'y fruit. The day we commcoenucedi
piackinlg a gentleman came to see me
alhmt buying the )Duchess apples. Itie
matlle mle a spot cash offer of i9 cents
pier box for thlem.l told him that 1 had
joincd the associatiin and considered
that I hadl no right to sell. He per
suaded me to iphonle AlMr. Loi'gwell for
pert nissi'll. I idone so. but was turnedl
down. He Wulid tL ,t gHirt nly re

I spe'k (i it as large as a pin head,
1 we summed n llp the loss to be less ,
, than one per cnt. Mr. Longwell had
Smade his tLhreat to Mr. Wilson that if
he passed 'that car he 'would have it
stopped and contents iurn.(ed. When r
1 thoroaghly satisfied that the fruit
was clean, Mr. Wilson passed and
stamped the boxes. I loaded the car
and sent it to market. On its way
down Mr. Longwell wired Prof. Dean
to 'stop that car.' It (lid not stop nor
were the contents burned. Now, fruit
raisers of the valley, what do you
think of such work?
"A few days later I saw in many
Stores this same fruit selling itn the
open market at $1.83 to $2.00 per box.
"WVhy did the association make such
a miserable failure of marketing' the
fruit this season? The anlswelr is
very obvious. U'nfair methods witil in
competent men at the head to hasitdle
the affairs of the asercintion. IIHtl I
