First—that commission agents be required to fur

produce is sold.
Second—that before any produce is dumped, the
shipper be notified.
I hese arc the provision* which the farmer* in S'tmner,
i'uyallup, Auburn, White River valley, and other places on
Puffet sound want enacted into law.
Plans are now bring formulated for a monster mass
meeting of farmer- within the next week or two. At that
time, the prot»osed law wilj he discussed. A tentative plan
for a farmer> association to lake care of the distribution of
the products in the cities, will also be put forwards ,
Informal Indignation meetings
axalnat the Western av produce op
erators have been held wherever
two or more farmers got together
during the past two or three weeks.
How to meet the common enemy
has been the chief topic of discus
sion, and for the first time the
farmers are seriously talking of or
ganising and bringing the f'ght to
the enemy's camp.
Kesp Prices Secret.
In the past, the producer* have
ben compelled to accept whatever
prices she commission men gave.
The latter refused to divulge to
whom they had made their sales,
and (he farmers consequently bad
no means of telling whether the
prices quoted to them were really
the prices at which their prod acta
| were s<itd.
The proposed law. suggested by
1- (J. Orr and others In the Sumner
valley, would make It mandatory
i|Kin the commission man to give
t complete list to the shipper of all
?he sales made, and to whom.
Also, the farmers want to be no
tified In advance of every case
where it Is necessary to dump any
products. Comtt Isslon men tell
[ farmers It has been necessary to
dump goods which had rotted.
Want Own Exchange
No notice would be given the
farmer at the time. Weeks after
ward. when the commission man
forwarded his statement and ac
count, the "dumping" Item would
almost Invariably appear
Discussion at the mass meeting
may lead to the bigger project of
forming a permanent association to
handle the distribution of products.
It Is planned to have the farmers
co-operate in establishing central
exchanges In Seattle and Tacoma,
with their.own representatives In
charge, who will transact the busi
