running Mr. Bouldln such a close sec

The race for fourth and fifth places
was Indeed a pretty one, und no winnei
could be men guessed at until the
count was made and the recount com
pleted. But the fourth honors went to

Halle, but both positions were reacaed
by the narrowest of margins, as the
vote standing on page a will show.

ORIENT IS MARKET
FOR CITRUS FRUIT
Hold-up Polity of the Railroads
, Denounced in a ....
OPEN ADDRESS TO GROWERS
Suggestion Indicating How Pro
ducers May Escape Excessive
Freight Rates Offered
. ■ « ■ ■ ■ . . ■. ■
An immense and unlimited field for
the sale of the citrus fruits of Southern
California, and at the same time a
method of bringing the holdup policy
of the railroads to a stop, Is suggested
by the following letter from the head
of one of the largest steamship com
panies operating on the Pacific coast
to the chamber of commerce:
"SHANGHAI, China.—l wish to call
your attention to what I consider a
very Important matter, viz., the ex
portation of citrus fruit from Southern
California to China and Japan.
"I am quite satisfied that a very
large business can be done, probably
not very profitable at first, but by
persevering it will grow into a large
and profitable business. To do it, how
ever, it requires some energetic man to
be employed by the Fruit Growers' as
sociation who would make his head
quarters here, but who must be a
lively man who would energetically
work the business up.
"This matter comes very forcibly to
my mind when I read that the lemon
growers are in a controversy with the
railroads about freight rates. The way
to regulate the freights, according to
my way of thinking, is to leave the
railroads alone, establish a big export
trade that will take the surplus, and
the railroads will make satisfactory
rates without being asked to do It.
"For the past few years we have
been bringing out oranges, lemons
and apples on every steamer we have
coming, and distributing them as
presents. This, in a small way, has
got the fruits introduced and estab
lished. For your Information I would
say that the steamship Bessie Dollar
has Just arrived here after a voyage of
twenty-seven days from Portland. She
brought fifty boxes of oranges. No
doubt there has been quite a time in
transit from Los Angeles to Portland,
and still they arrived here In excellent
condition, and bo much superior to any
oranges in this market that there is
"This matter could be taken up In a
practical way when the Associated
Chambers of Commerce party comes
here in August.
