Referendum Measure No. 9
By JAMES E. BRADFORD
Progressive Nominee for Governor
This measure changes the present
port law in the following important
(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
(c) Limits the power of leasing cer
You should vote against this bill
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
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
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
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
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;

in this group 37 per cent above the
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. The group of
farm products showed a 2 per cent in
crease in the average for 1915 over
