X Ranchers Who Held Out From
i Fruit Growers Movement
Are Joining
.KNOWLEDGE IS SPRfc**'°'vb «.'J
And Fact Is More Generally Un
derstood That Those Whose
Money Is Invested Must Con
struct Marketing Machinery
Indications multiply daily that the
ranchers of the Yakima valley are
more than ever interested in organi
sation of the apple industry of this
I valley and determined more strongly
; than ever to stand together and con
* trol thorugh their own machinery
• the marketing and distribution of the
orchard crops.
This Is manifested in many ways,
one being the fact that ranchers who
had hitherto paid no attention to ef
forts at organization are now identi-
I tying themselves with the movement
to that end. Kaeh season as it passes
brings about a more general under
standing of the situation by the aver
age grower so that sentiment la
stronger and more deeply intrenched
than heretofore.
"I was a member of the committee
of the commercial club," said Alex
Miller," which investigated various
phases of the fruit business at the tn
etigation of the club and as a result
we made a report which pointed out
that the solution of the marketing
problem is one that is up to the
growers themselves. I do not care to
go into the subject as an individual
at this time but will merely refer you
to that report.
But One Result
"The growers, in working out the
Ibest ends in their own business can
come to but one result. One big thing
to remember is that the apple is a
staple crop and can be !*arketc.;
through a period of nine months. It
does not have to be sacrificed as sott
fruits -bive been sacrificed. Tbe 'tfrVT*
has/ i past when the grain and
flour men have sold other than f. o.
to. Such sales must come for the apple
man and he must bring them about
"So far as the soft fruits are con
cerned the organizations which the
growers will build up will have their
plants for canning and evaporating
and will, as a part of their own busi
ness be prepared to eliminate such an
awful waste as we have had in past
"The time is rapidly coming when
such waste cannot be endured for the
reason that the old seasons of ab
normal prices are passing. There may
he unusual prices at one time or an
other for some special crop, but the
business Is getting to a permanent,
profit-giving basis and as such must
be organized to look after its own in
terests In a way that the individuals
cannot do it. The time is coming, in
brief, when the competition from
other districts will be sufficient to
keep us busy rather than to continue
this proposition of competition by a
neighbor against a neighbor."
W. J. Bryan Says When Trust
Was Doubtful It Asked Roose
velt and He Said Yes
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 23.—William
Jennings Bryan, who is following in
the trail of Colonel Roosevelt,, at his
own expense in interest of Governor
Wilson, departed from Los Angeles
tonight for Sacramento where he ex
pects to speak at the State fair to
morrow. While here he devoted many
Word to Roosevelt's candidacy. From
tarly morning until late in the atter
noon he kept busy speaking, although
only four addresses had been sched
Discussing Roosevelt and the trusts,
Bryan said that Roosevelt had de
clared that the trusts had come to
■itay and that he denounced the Demo
crats for wanting to make it impos
sible for private monopoly to exist.
Roosevelt, he said, just wanted to
"regulate." He declared Roosevelt
had watched monopoly "merge and
merge" and when it got to In* a
doubtful point when it didn't know
Whether It could merge or not It went
to him and asked him, and he said,
••Yes, merge."
Bryan, apparently referring to
what he recently termed "stolen
planks" of democrats, said: "Wln-re
Roosevelt's position Is good on na
tional issues, Democrats have been
there long before him. I think it
would bo only fair if Rosevelt would
do with issues like they sometimes do
jaith eggs, mark a date on them."

Vacationers Who Earned Trip s Expenses

WASHINGTON, Sept. 23.—A num- l

just returned to their homes after at
three day sightseeing trip in the cap

Governor Wilson Says That is
! What the Democrats Have
Been Doinsf FoT Years*"'
SCRANTON, Pa., Sept. 23.—-Gov
ernor Wilson rodo through rainy
Pennsylvania today. Campaigning as
he went and addressing thousands of
persons, who crowded wayside stations
to see him. He arrived here at six
o'clock tonight and participated in
an umbrella parade to the armory
where a big meeting was hold. Prom
tho moment tho democratic candi
date crossed the state line at Phil
lipsburg and stopped al Easton, Del
aware, Watergap, Portland and
Stroudsburg, there were umbrella
covered crowds to greet him.
Mr. Wilson again today ridiculed
the contention of his opponents that
tho Democratic party did not have
the Interests of the country at heart.
He asserted that Pennsylvania voters
who had long been suspicious of the
Democratic party showed signs of
turning away from the party that had
not satisfied the people and entrust
Its confidence to the party that is
now seeking a new set of policies in
order that the country as a whole
may be served. "The Republicans are
not even satisfying themselves," said
Mr.' Wilson.
He declared there was evidently
"some family trouble" in the Repub
lican party, and expressed the, belief
that It does not know exactly what
it wants to do. He said that tlinne
"who have been with us for sixteen
years have seen exactly what vv.rn
coming in the year 1912." He said
he wanted it noted that the Demo
cratic party has had substantially lis
present program of returning the
government to the people for more
than sixteen years.

find that we have sold close to $2000
"Those figures were a surprise to
me for, as you know, we make no
pretense at raising hogs and those
we have sold are merely those We
raised incidentally on the ranch. They

(From tfie Nebraska Farmer)
Since early In the season tha
produce papers representing the
apple dealers have been crying 1111
enormous production of apples for
1!)12 in" almost all parts of the
country. These forces are evident
ly trying to force the prices down
while the fruit is yet in tho hands
of tho producers so they may be
able to buy at their own prices.
Reports received by tho State
Horticultural Society from other
societies and experiment stations
In all parts of the country, as well
as the government reports, show
but a slight increaso over 1911
and the quality not so good.
Selling associations and co-opera
tion among the producers are what
are needed to cope'with tho shrewd
dealers in apples. The commercial
growers of purely fruit sections
where the growers are organized
for selling their fruit pay no at
tention to such reports as they
"keep wise" to the situation, but
the growers of this section, who
are not organized are up against it
nt the present time.
Will Not Allow Saddle Out of
Sight When Charged With
Stealing It
Seated on a black, medium weight
saddle which, it is charged he had
stolen along with a horse and bridle
on September 18, William Cree, a
sturdy Indian about fifty years old,
protested his innocence in the county
jail yesterday. The saddle had been
found in his possession, according to
Deputy Sheriff James Dew, who ar
rested free in Yakima City yesterday
afternoon, and when brought to the
jail Cree, asserting that the saddle was
rightfully his, would not allow it out
">■ his sight and preferred it to any
thing Mr. Dew could offer in the Jail
in the way of chafrs.
It was finally shown to Cree that
the court would decide the ownership
of the property and the mere fact that
In- would In- relieved of the saddle un
til that time vvuiild not necessarily
mean that be Would not SSS it again.
'Iln- saddle was then placed in the
Storeroom and the Indian accepted a
chair. Tin- complainant against eras
is U. E. Betes, whu asserts he owns
the liiirsi. and saddle.

Lawyers Speak of Judge Preble to
Fill Vacancy But Nothing
■ Done
Although there is talk Unit North
Yakima should be represented on the
Supremo Court bench of the State,
no action has been taken and nunc is
being immediately contemplated by
members of the bar In tlii.s vicinity, so
far as can lie learned. It was stated
yesterday by a prominent attorney nf
the city that there was a general feel
ing that the Yakima and Kittitas val
leys should have a man In Ibis place,
The argument advanced for Ibis is
that (he irrigation country should be
represented. There is some puzzle
ment at present concerning Ihe method
of electing or appointing a SUOO6SSOI
to Judge Dunbar, whose death last
week created the vacancy and there
is, therefore, a hsitation evident in
advancing a candidate fur the place
until this situation is mads clear. The
general mlxup it was pointed out was
due to the fact that JU Ige Dunbar
was a nominee for re-election at the
time of his death.
The name most frequently men
tioned locally in connection with the
place at present is that of Supi 11 n
Court Judge Preble. It may be, a
North Yakima, lawyer stated yester
day, that tho sltuntiiin will arise
where the appointment of Judge
Preblo to the place would be feasible
and logical. Tbe argument beard out
side against Yakima getting the va
cancy is that as the Supreme Court
bench stands at present the country
this side of the mountains has the
majority, five to four, and only one
third of tho population. With ths
naming of a man from North Yak
ima the count would bs six to three,
it was pointed out.
suvo the Pheasants
Golden pheasants hays begun to
feed themselves In the Yakima valley.
Half a dozen pairs were released at
various time by Pstsr Bach, of l-'ruil
vale, some Intentionally and Some by
accident, and a few of the birds es
caped at other times from other
fanciers in this valley. These birds
have taken kindly to their frssdom,
have mated and raised their brum!
and tho young have besn reported
from sections as widely separated B4
tho .Selah and the Ahtanum.
I. H. Dills, who has been making
an Inquiry, is satisfied thst the birds
will readily propagate themselves In
this country. They arc much less
nervous than the Chinese pheasants,
are a good game bird, are not _••
etructivc and are very beautiful.
"1 hope," said Mr Dills, "that when
the law is taken off for fifteen days
that Chinese phsssants may bs bunt
ed that tin- boys and the new sports
men will make it a point nut tv shoot
at the Guldens. The old sportsmen
who knuw how few the birds are will,
I know, refrain fiuin pupping at them,
1 think the birds ought tv be given
another few season but uf course
they win be in great danger during
tho open season If wo do mil Unit* In
agreeing to let them pass unharmed."
