DIETEKJ-iA Secretary VOTE AGAINST Referendum Measure No. 9 By JAMES E. BRADFORD Progressive Nominee for Governor This measure changes the present port law in the following important respects: (a) Increases the commission from three to seven members by adding the mayor of the city, the county engineer auditor and prosecuting attorney. (b) Limits the power of the port to incur debts to five and three-quarters million dollars. (c) Limits the power of leasing cer tain property. You should vote against this bill because — 1 — It is favored and is in the in terest of private dock and warehouse owners, commission brokers, cold storage men and the railroads that own waterfront in Seattle and enjoy unjust switching charges, and other enemies of municipal ownership and home rule: these and other allied in terests lobbied and all are red hot for this bill. 2 — It turns the present non-partisan commission into a partisan body and drags the entire port into the slimy pool of both city and county politics. 3 — It prevents any further growth of the port, because It prohibits in curring any debts; the port has al ready reached the limit above stated. Vancouver and other cities have put in many more miions of dollars than our port has, which will handicap us very greatly. 4— It will kill the public ownership of the port, for the private and selfish interests that got ahis bill up are in favor of selling or leasing the port property 5 — It strikes a fatal blow to home WHOLESALE PRICES IN 1915 Wholesale prices of commodities in, the United States averaged consider ably highfr in 1915 than in the preced ing year, according to Bulletin No. 200 of the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U. S. Department of Labor. The! downward trend which set in toward the close of 1914 did not extend be-, yond that year and by end of Jan uary, 1915, prices of many commodi ties had advanced -to a point well' above those of the year before. Feb ruary prices in the aggregate were J abov« those of January, but slight de creases occurred in March and April. In May prices again advanced and, ex-j cept for small declines in June and > September, continued at high levels | throughout the remainder of the year. The bureau's weighted index number for December stood at 105, the highest point reached In any year since the collection of data for the present series of reports on whole sale prices, dating back to 1890, was begun. Violent fluctuations were recorded during 1915 in the prices of many commodities, particularly drugs and < chemicals and metals and metal products. In the former group prices as s whole declined during the first < ffve months of the year, after which they rose sharply until the December average was 39 per cent above the; average for January and 43 per cent above that for May Metals and metal I products advanced steadily in price! throughout the year, except for slight declines la August. September and! October The year closed with prices < I rule or the right of the people in the ; pori districts, who pay all the taxes to support the port, to run their own affairs. The people voted down, near- 1 ly four to one. the idea of increasing, the commission, and then these hostile and selfish interests lohhied and got , the bill through the legislature with-; out. consulting the people in the dis-, trict. 6 — it is important to the farmer, j fruit grower and the entire state that our port facilities he owned and op— crated by the public, to the end that cheap rates may be enjoyed by all on an equal basis. 'Wharfage rates have been reduced from 50 to 20 per cent ! by the port, and this and other cheaper \ rates benefit both the producer and consumer. 7 — It will prevent the port from I building a public belt line voted by the people to do away with discrimina tion, extortionate charges and other vicious practices long permitted and enjoyed by the five railway companies ion the waterfront, and such a belt line would give the same treatment to all ithe world on a fair basis, at reason jable and reduced rates. 8— This bill is only a part of a larger [movement by its foes to stem the ris ing tide of or kill municipal owner ship in all public utilities in this and! other states; municipal ownership in any form, except the police and fire . departments, to these private interests . is like dangling a red flag before the eyes of a wild bull. t 9 —The same political gangs and i selfish interests of special privilege i and graft back of this bill are aLso in favor of all the other referendum , measures. i I The republican legislature passed t jthe bill and Governor Lister approved t lit, I an! opposed to it. Work and 'vote against this measure that drips, I with so much vice and iniquity. in this group 37 per cent above the January prices. In the fuel and lighting group was little change in prices during the first three months of the year, but marked declines took place in the spring and early summer. In August prices again advanced, the increase continuing for the rest of the year. The December average for this group was 11 per cent above that for Jan uary. Prices in the cloths and cloth ing group showed a steady advance during the entire year, the increase from January to December being more than 11 per cent. Articles belonging to the food group were, in the aggregate, highest in price in December and lowest in Sep tember The increase betwen January and Dcember in this group was nearly 4 per cent. Farm products averaged highest in May and lowest in January, September and November. The aver age for December was only slightly above that for January. In the re maining groups prices as a whole showed a falling tendency during the earlier part and a rising tendency during the latter part of 1915. Comparing 1915 with 1914, the group of commodities showing the greatest increase in average yearly prices was I that of metals and metal products, the f increase in the group as a whole be | ing slightly more than 11 per cent. In f the drugs and chemicals group the I increase between the two years was nearly 10 per cent.
