Cold Storage Plants at the
Market Centers Seem to
Be Closed to the Western
Is there gigantic cold storage trust
being formed In the mlddlo west which
will greatly cripple fruit growers In
the state of Idaho as well as other
states In the west'.' This Is the ques
tion that is causing not a little worry
to growers who have been cast and
have had occasion to review the pecu
liar conditions as they found them
there with regard to the cold storage
situation. I>. H. Moseley, a well known
real estate dealer and a man familiar
with the fruit industry, has Just re
turned from a trip to Chicago and other
eastern points. He was given an op
portunity to review the cold storage
What Situation It.
From facts that Mr. Moseley could
secure it appears that heretofore a
greater part of the fruit shipped from
the west Is sold at public auction In
Chicago. Buyers have In the past bid
for and secured this fruit and then
made arrangements with cold storage
owners to care for the fruit at so much
per box until such a time as the buyer
could dispose of the fruit when it was
taken from cold storage and delivered
to the purchaser.
When buyers attempted to secure
cold storage space for their fruit this
year they found that cold storage own
ers had no space for sale and In face
of this fact they considered It too great
a risk to purchase on the market. In
quiry at all cold storages developed the
same condition of affairs. That the
owners of the cold storage plants were
doing a little business of their own In
fruit was evident for they are said to
have sent their agents on th-e auction
market and bid in the fruit. Then
they stored It and now have it In cold
storage waiting for an advance In
prices, with the result that the con
sumers will be forced to pay the price
demanded or go without fruit. The
cold storage t owners can hold the fruit,
It Is said, indefinitely and aro assured
of a much better price when they un
load than they could secure on the
market now'.
The condition is claimed to be
serious one and may result In entirely
new tactics being pursued in the sale
of fruit grown in the western sections.
It is viewed with some seriousness by
fruit growers and buyers. The cold
storage plan is said to extend generally
and Includes not only the plants

Admitted That No Investi

Has Been Made.
In order that a quarantine might he
declared against Idaho alfalfa, State
Horticultural Inspector A. J. Cook, of
California, had Investigated the con
ditions surrounding weevil claimed to
be in Utah and Washington alfalfa,
according to information conveyed by
him in letters to a party in tills state,
these letters having been turned over
to State Horticultural Inspector John
U. McPherson. Just why it was nec
essary to investigate the alfalfa
Utah and Washington in order
quarantine the Idaho product is some
thing that local officials and growers
fail to understand. Horticultural In
spector Cook has never, so far as can
be learned, Investigated Idaho alfalfa.
California was urged. If It felt that
It had to quarantine against this crop
In Idaho, to only quarantine against
alfalfa grown In those districts claimed
to be under the ban of the law. In
Horticultural Inspector Cook's letter-,
to parties In this state, which are now
In the possession of Idaho's state hor
ticultural Inspector, ho makes It plain
that California has little Intention of
lifting the quarantine, although he will
reconsider the matter. He says:
"We sent a man to Utah and made
the fullest Inquiry In ittah and Wash
ington before we declared a quaran
tine. It Is very difficult to quaran
tine a portion of a state and often
quite unsafe. I will, however, go into
the matter again and give It a very
thorough examination and will, If pos

It, but I fear we cannot. The people

The slate of Oregon made a request
today upon the state of .Idaho for the
delivery of George Brown, an ex-con
vlct and violator of his parole, be
lleved to be In this state, to be deliv
; ereil to the Oregon officials. Governor
Hawley honored the request and placed
I the requisition papers in the hands of
Secretary of State W. L. Gifford.
Brown will bo taken in custody within
a few days.
It is cited in the complaint of the
Cregon officials that Brown Was tried
and convicted in Oregon on the charge
of forgery, March 28, 1911, and sen
tenced to serve five years in the state
penitentiary. He was received at that
Institution April 2, 1911, and served
until July 26, 1912, when he was grant
ed a trusty parole. The terms of this
parole he Is alleged to have violated
by eloping with a young girl. He Is

the late Welson B. Heyburn. look bet
ter today than they did yesterday, al
though many of the close friends of
the governor still declare that the
senatorial honor will go north as the j
governor at first designated. They
refuse to believe that the governor is
considering the office for himself, al
though thoy are not opposed to him
doing so, but so far as could be ascer
tained from them would like to see
this happen, It Is said.
Governor Is Silent.
The governor is still maintaining a
dignified silence regarding the Ap
pointment. He has nothing to say
upon the Issue but that Is not taken
to Indicate that when he finally acts
he will still he as silent. He has
been busy holding conferences during
today with many of the party leaders
as well as prominent Republicans who
have requested audiences. The great
est pressure that Is being brought to
bear upon the governor to accept the
senatorial appointment himself Is com
ing from those of an opposite politi
cal faith, many of whom are urgent
In their requests.
Lieutenant Governor L. H. Sweetser
Is expected to either arrive here or to
hold a conference with party leaders
at Burley with a view of going over
the recess appointment matter. It is
claimed here that he feela favorably
inclined towards the appointment of
the governor and Is being urged to so
act. That the proposal to appoint the
governor will have to come from Re

The Boles people will be given an
early opportunity to hear Dr. Freder
ick A. Cook's aide of the controversy
over the discovery of the North Pole
on next Monday evening, Nov. 18, when
Dr. Cook will lecture nt the Pinney
theater. The lecture will be illustrated
by view* of the far north. Dr. Cook
has gained a greater notoriety than
even the discovery of the pole eould
give him by the controversy that has
arisen as to whether ha waa actually
the first to completely conquer the
frigid north. He hae again brought
the question into the public arena by
lecturea in Europe and America and
by his recent book entitled, "My At
tainment of the Pole." The etory of
hardship and perseverance and his
scientific data offered by this Intrepid
explorer arouses an enthralling inter
est Dr. Cook's work bears on its
face the apparent imprint of truth.
Among other things he says: "The at
tainment of this mythical epot did not
then and does not now seem in itself
anything very wonderful. I did not
then and I do not now consider it the
treasure house of any great scientific
secret. The big thing to be gained
from the reaching of the pole, the rea
son In the accomplishment is that man
by brain power and muscle energy
can subdue the moet terrifie forces of
blind nature, if he Is courageous
enough and undauntedly persistent
despite failure."
The Times of Kansas City, Missouri,
has the following to say of Dr. Cook's
lecture recently given In that city:
