Boise Captiai News: Reclamation engineers, water masters on the various projects and officials in the service in Idaho and several from outside points gathered in Boise this of three morning for a conference days to discuss problems of mainten ance and operation and for the pur pose of exchanging ideas and discuss ing matters of value which can be put in practice and which will make the service more efficient. F. E. Weymouth, supervising engi neer for Idaho, is presiding at the con ference. The speakers this morning were C. R. Burkey of Jerome, who gave a history of the maintenance problems on earthwork and wooden and metal flumes on the Twin Palls The engineer North Side project, covered the subject well and it was followed by a discussion, a number of questions being asked the speaker an( j maintenance problems of flumes on other projects brought up. John U. McPherson, general field su perintendent for the North Pacific Fruit Distributors, spoke on the topic "Marketing Crops." He emphasized two essential points necessary to the successful moving of crops. One was the standard package, which lie stat ed could be depended upon by buyers as being o. k. and the other was the furnishing nf a certain so that buyers amount of produce, could depend upon getting a certain quantity from a certain district, know ing what the quality would be. He system fo declared that the only marketing crops was through an or ganization, the farmers pooling their products, conforming with the grade demanded, and shipping in bulks, thus getting better rates and selling through an agency which had to be reckoned with on the markets. He ex plained the system by which special brokers were maintained in market centers, how the farmers were kept posted on the market and the distribut ing system by which cars were moved on from points where prices were low to points where they were higher. He gave a history of his work in the potato field last year, stating farmers at first refused to pool, be lieving that they could do better by shipping independently, but declared that by December all were ready to pool. He stated that the grade was the only thing Insisted upon by the as sociation but that was strictly enforc that ed. Following his address Mr. McPher son was asked The topic proved a live one and was only temporarily halted by the noon hour, being resumed at the opening of the afternoon session.
