Cacho county Is now n tho hnndB
1 ' of tho Democrats. They took over
tho reins ot ofllco yestoraay and In
most Instances took over full control
of their rcspectlvo offlccs to which
they wcro elected. Tho old board of
county commissioners submitted tho
' duties of their ofllco to tho now hoard
nt high noon. A. B. Chamoors took
tho oath of ofllco and called tho now
I board to ordor. Ho asked for nomi
nations for n chairman and Immedi
ately Commissioner James J. Facer
took tho floor and placed In nomina
tion tho namo of Olof Cronquist. At
this point Commissioner James J.
Mclklo arose and mado a brief state
ment, saying that tinder ono condi
tion would ho support tho nomination
of Mr. Cronquist for this position.
Ho said ho realized that Commission
er Cronquist was a busy man and
tried to crowd as much work as pos
sible Into tho tlmo ho has at his dis
posal. In doing so ho Is vory often
lato for board meetings nd unless
ho could exact a promlso that this
L fault would bo rectified, ho would un
der so circumstances second tho nom
ination. Commissioner Olof Cronquist
then arose Ho gavo Mr. Mclklo a
leturo on conditions as ho saw them
and referred rather humorously to
tho tlmo when tho board selected a
chairman two years ago. Mr. Cron
quist seconded tho nomination mado
by Mr. Facer, tho motion wns put,
with two voting yes and ono no. An
adjournment was taken until 2 o'clock

J ling, Georgo Mljcnqulst of Hyrum
was requested to remnln for a tlmo
In tho ofllco and tho namo of John
J. Hendry of Wellsvlllo which was
submitted was tabled for tho tlmo
County Treasurer 1. B. Van Or
des submitted the namo of Elbert C.
Van Orden as chief deputy, but asked
that W. H. Larson bo retained for
a tlmo until ho got accustomed to
tho ofllco. Mr. Melklo at this Junc
ture took' tho floor and opposed tho
proposition. Mr. Cronquist stood by
Mr. Moiklo. Ho did not favor making
tho treasurer's ofllco a family affair.
Mr. Facer said ho did not liko tho
proposition ot making tho ofllco a
father and son affair and so Mr.
Larsen will romaln until Wb succes
sor Is appointed.

Tho Following wns taken from Sun
day's Horald-Rcpublican:
Special dispatch from Provo which
appeared In yesterday's Issue of the
Salt Lake newspapers announced that
W. H. Homer, Jr., and others wero
soliciting subscriptions to stock in a
ennnery proposition which would cov
er all tho fruit raising districts In
Utah. Tho Items gavo what purport
ed to bo a statement of the promot
ers to the effect that Joseph F. Smith
president of tho Mormon church, and
other prominent Salt Lakers were in
terested In tho schomo which would
bo incorporated with a capital ot f 1,
000,000. Presiding Bishop C. W. Nlbloy,
ono of tho men mentioned In this
connection said last night that a day
or two ago a man named Harry E.
Cary had approached him with tho
statement that ho had at his com
mand. eastern capital up to a half
million dollars which would bo In
vested In n stnto wldo ennnory prop
osition, provided ho and others would
Join In tho matter Bishop Nlbloy
i snyn that ho agreed to do so, as ho
would Join in any other ontcrprlso
which would benefit tho stato. "It
1 now nppears, though," said Illshop
1 Nlbloy last night, "as If organization
ot tho cnterprlBo wcro not being con
ducted on thollnos which Mr. Cary
said would ho followed. In fast, tho
appearanco was that an attempt was
being mado to ralso tho cntlio capi
tal hero, without bringing In any
eastern or other outsldo monoy."
John O. Cutlor, M. H. Wnlkor and
Joseph Gcoghegan and others who
had been asked to Join In promoting
tho cannory proposition concurred is
this statomont and Josoph F. Smith
"Tho report Is entirely false I
have nothing to do with tho mattor.
It seems to mo purely a promotion
schomo and Mr. Cary, who visited
this ofllco about It yesterday, seemed
to havo no undertaking but Intended
to get support on tho strength of tho
reputations of local men."

tho demand for them at trado cen
ters nro tho subjects of a special re
port to Congress by tho Secretary of
Agriculture, recently published. Tho
roport was mado by special direction
of Congress in order that In forma
tion might bo at band concerning tho
establishment ot a division ot mar
kets In tho Department of Agricul
ture. Tho Secretary specifies various
Items of sorvlco that could bo per
formed by such an ofllco with recom

pages nnd is crowded with Informa

By Producers To Consumers
The report treats ot tho muvoronnt
ot farm products from tho Tarm to
consumer through a great variety of
channels. Tho simplest distribution
Is tho direct ono ot dollvory by far
mer to consumer, and next after this j
is tho delivery by Individual farmers I
or associations of farmers to Indl.ld
ual consumers or associations ot con
sumers. In theso direct forms ot dis
tribution, tho middleman Is eliminat
ed, although ot course lntormcdlato
services aro performed either by pro
ducers or by consumers or by both
Intervention Of Middlemen
Among the varieties of mlddlaires
concerned In tho markotlng ot farm
products aro tho traveling huckbtors
who go from farm to farm gathering
eggs, butter, poultry, calves, and oth
er commodities, which thoy sell to '
shippers, Jobbers, or ret a1 1 dealers.
Tho country merchant Is often tho 1
first receiver of such products as
eggs, farm mado butter, poultry, wool (
I hides, cotton, nnJ. sometimes grain I
nnd hay. In regions whoro grain Is j
tho staplo product, tho tendency has
been to dlsplaco tho country morch-1
ant by tho grain buyer and tho local
clovntor man. i
I Fnrmors commonly sell through
j commission merchants and to somo
' extent directly to wholesalo dealers,
and also to retail dealers. Tho far- ,
mer who employs a trustworthy com- '
mission merchant who will handle
i his products honestly and honorably
will got tho current prices for them
within tho rango ot tho commission
merchants business, but tho farmor
often finds hlmBolf In tho hands of a
commission merchant who falsely re
ports that tho products wero received
In damaged condition or that thoy
wcro of a grado lower than thoy woro
In fact, or ho reports receiving pri
ces lower than thoso actually receiv
ed by him for tho products. Worso
tnan this, it In by no means raro
that tho commission merchant has
sold tho products and failed to return
tho net proceeds.
Samples ot transactions in which
only ono middleman intervenes bo
tweon producer and consumer lncludo
tho commission man at a largo mar
ket who receives consignments ot tlvo
stock from farmers nnd soils to pack
ors; tho factor to whom tho planter
consigns his rlco or cotton and from
whom purchases aro mado by mill
ers; tho warehousomou who manago
tho salo ot a Virginia planter's tobac
co. Tho Intervention of two men be
tweon producer nnd consumer is a
common occurronco Fruits nnd veg
