FALL FAIR  CAKIA'ON PLAN liECOMIXG  POPULAR IN THE STATES  Senator P. II. Carolyn of Olympia.  father of  the Carlyon bonding  plan  for paving the state's arterial high-  Avay system at a cost og '.'���������'30,000,01)1"  the  project  Avhich   was  endorsed  by  the last legislature and ordered   re  tarred to the electors at the next general election, reports a flood., of   inquiries, "says the Seattl e-P.-L, for information and containing requests foil iih.  to  deliver addresses  explaining  its merits.  Passage of the . measure- by the  "Washington Legislature has resulted  in agitation for similar work in Montana, Rhode Island and British Columbia. Senator Carlyon's plan wil.  givv Washington a magnificent system of paved highways without im  posing one cent extra upon the general tax levy.  The $30,000,000 project would be  carried out in, six years by m^aus of.  a bond issue, tho interest and sinking  fund charges of which Avould be met  from the motor vehicle license fees,  which have just been increased to a  point Avhich would render au'ch plan  entirely feasible.  Completion of the paving project  would not only benefit the motorists  in dollars and cents because it is iig-  ured that such paving would effect i  saving of from $75 to $92 a, year in  gasoline and tires alone for the average car, but would place Washington  in the front rank of states capitalizing their scenic advantages. The in-  fluz of tourists would bring a golden  stream to every portion of the state,  according to Dr. Carolyn. Ancl the  benefits would be perpetual,  -'You can seli scenery evrey year  without impairing the crop one. bic,"  ls orro oi! Senator Carolyn's aphorisms  "Scenery is tho cheapest crop to  raise'"���������Washington Avith its natural  beauty good roads and summer climate would make it hard for California to beat.  Washington's campaign really started tlie movement which is sweeping  tlie country for the improvement o.  highways by paving tho bonds for  which'arc paid for out of the motor  vohiclo license revenues. Washington's* plan is conceded to bo the most  advanced and most equitable way of  'distributing tlio burden for paving.  Senator Carolyn also roportec  groat Interest in highway improvo-  monl. throughout the 'atato. Thurston County contemplates thirty-five  miles of paving in tho ucxt two years.  This work will bo done on the Pacific HighAvay south from Olympia tc  Lewis County and toAvard Shelf on as  far as Mason County  ���������Thurston County plans lo sponc  $'100,000 on tho Avork Avith an equal  amount from the federal government  Grays Harbour will spend $4 00,000  Avith an equal amount from the post  road money.  I -*wh! Cmmty, Clark County    and  'Kin,4, County also    intend  It has been decided that the  Abbotsford-Sumas Fall Fair is  to be held this year again and  the boosters are out now working like troians. They are doing real work too because every  person you meet says he is going to take part in the fair, and  of course that means success.,  as next to good boosting; perhaps more important, comes  the man who will bring some-  thing to the exhibitor to compete for one of the many prizes  that are to be offered.

The  canvass when completed will be  an indication to the directors of  what success they,will have in  pulling off the fair when the  time comes.  The date has not yet been set  but the directors are awaiting  the answer from the government as to what date will be  assigned to them. This has to  be clone in order that the Abbotsford-Sumas fair will not be  held on; a day that will conflict  with any of the other fairs near  at hand.  Now is the time to plan for  exhibiting.

The Missanabie war. torpedoed and  i sunk by a German submarine in 191S^  have had more or less experience Avith  buyers of hops, Avith the result that  as a rule the buyers dominated the  markets, at least they did so, as far  as the groAver Avas concerned.  If the borry groAver is not extremely careful the same condition may  preA-ail Avith tho berry industry': 'there  fore, constructive vision is necessary  on the part of the growers in order-  to maintain the domination of ���������lhe  market conditions in the hands of  the growers rather than with a few  buyers.  For example���������Wo all had the pleasure of reading a statement issued by  the Puyallup Valley Fruit Growers  Union, in Avhich the statement Avas  made that one of the buyers, M:*  Baker, Avas not offering Puyallup Valley grown blackberries a ta iow price  but on the contrary ho was offering  ley grown blackbprries at a iow price  low price because he Avas able to  'huy,the California grown blackberries  at 4 1-2 c! per pound.  Each of us should have vision enough to realize that the    buyer    of  blackberries is not particularly interested in Avhat state the blackberries  are grown, so long as the quality is  satisfactory and if he can buy satisfactory  blackberries, grown in  California, for 4 1-2 cents per pound, he  is certainly not going to pay 0 cents  per pound in the Puyalup Valley foi  blackberries to serve the purpose of  the 4 1-2 cent blackberries.  In other Avords���������from a r-elfisli  standpoint Ave are all interested in  the berry grower in all sections oi  the country receiving a fair price for  his berries, so that Ave may leceive  a fair price for our berrie3.  It is a Avell known fact that red  raspberries, for    canning    purposes,  It does not take much of a scholar  to figure out, that if the grOAvers in  part of the State of Washington, and  all of the state of Oregon, are only  receiving 7 1-4 c< for their red raspberries, as against 12c-* per pound in  Puyallup Valley.it is only a question  of time until the cheaper- ���������"tellers "will  dominate the markets.  If this statement is correct, we, as  growers, are interested in the growers  of Oregon, and of Skagit county, getting a full price for their berried. With  this idea- in view the undersigned  sont an agent to Oregon, and an agent,  to Skagit county, whero avo have contracted for the season 1919 a considerable portion of the crop of red  raspberries in both of these districts  at. 12tf per pound.  This is Avhat is designated as "Stirring up the Animals," which -will result In the usual noiso aud tiie usua.  groAvling that wo are accustomed to  hear Avhen' sticks are put into the  cages.  The marketing of tho Puyallup Valley crop of berries is under a handicap any time that the same general  class of berries can be purchased elsewhere for less money.  We are interested from a purely  selfish standpoint, in getting Avhat  the berries are worth. Can this bo  dono in any better Avay "than it has  been done in this instance?  Another point that should be seriously considered is, Ave beliove it is  a mistake to permit any buyer to  come into this community and pick  up just such varieties of berries as  he desires and not take all Kinds of  berries.

Mr. \V. J. Manson called the meeting to order and asked that a chairman be named for the evening. The  appointment fell to him, and Mr. C  K. Moody Avas chosen as secretary.  Mr. Manson proceeded to state the  object, of tiie meeting, outlining the  events  of  the  previous   week.       He  told cf the visit of Messrs Hunter and  Baker of the Empress to him personally when the situation was carefully  gone over, stating that he told Mr  Hunter that he believed    tiierj wxjrc  two plans in his mind; one to gamble  with the season,    the other to make  ��������� an offer of 15������ and later to split \vith  f  ho Association agreeing  to give a  IGe? cent rate.     "You see how I sized  up  the situation", said  tho speaker.  Then came the meeting of representatives of King-Beach Mfg. Company  Tho Empress Company and the Dom-  '   inion Canners  Avith  the directory .in  the .Company's office at    Hatzic    on  Wednesday afternoon,when ���������ftei considerable discussion the cahners finally   told  tho   directors   that  at  the  opening of the season they had named the price of 12 c^ for the cannery  but  now  they   Avere  prepared  to  lc  more generous, and submitted an of-  ��������� fer of 15cL    Tho directors on behalf  of the Fruit and Mercantile Exchange  refused to accept it.     Mr. Hunter staled that lie had come to Hatzic foi  the purpose of doing something and  \������. anted to have    something    settlor',.  As the canners wished  to talk ov-?i  the matter the directors left the room  to  Inspect their plant.     .Once  the",  called in the president    and    asked  some about delivery of berries, sue  Mr. Manson believed than ".hat    Mr  Hunter in asking these questions had  practically decided   to meet the Ex  change at 17cL He however stated in  reply, "lean make no statement as  to what Ave are prepared to do." Later  Avhon  the  directors  thought  the  time of leave had expired t.hev went  iii to- the office, Avhen Mr. Kuntsr said  ''We are not  interested  in  the  17������  price."    Manson said. "Very Avell-Mi  Hunter"  and   jotted   clown   the  offer  ���������they  made of   15t(.    After  they  left  nothing more Avas saen of the canners  until  the next day,  when during a:i  interview Avith Ueda and Fuzino Mr.  Walton came into the office and after  he had left Messrs Beach and Raker  came In and after some talk said the*  (hey Avere prepared to give 'IGcJ.Avhich  th.ey  Avere nslv������d   to   put,  iu   Avriting.  and was read by Mr. Manson :u the  meeting.

'The Exchange Avants to conduct buslue'.'s in  a fair manner, and this avhs of sufficient importance to nave the opinion  of all groAvnrs.    whether   they   Avere  'members  of the Association  or not.  Tt Avas thought right that all should  ba given tho priviJeg*) of expressing  their opinion. ������i->-*w  The speaker then went into the  history of the formation of the Fruit  and ?/Iercar.tilo Exchange showing  that an obligation of some $9000.00  had boon undertaken for the purr-PRf  of securing facilities of the handling  the fruit products of the district. He  thought, it Avas the result of this in-  voijiment and ^ho aide manner in  which matters had been handled the  price of 1G^ had been made orr Thursday afternoon.  One hundred tons were to be frozen, fifty for the association and fifty  for another party, both of which had  been sold at 17e>. The company had  been assured by_eastern canners that  100 tons will be but a small amount,  they will take if it Avas found that the  Fruit and Mercantile Exchange' could  handle the situation this year.  Mr. Manson then pleaded for    the  wholesoulcd support of every grower  in the district.

If it    Avas thought    that  the aims and actions of the associa  tion were along tlie right lines, then  it was the duty of all to stand by the  Association and  the growers of this  part of the Valley Avould speak as one;  business man, the result    of    Avhich  Avould be conducted along lines that  meant success  of the  Whole  Fraser  Valley, and the producer aud consumer Avould mutually reap tiie   advantages.  futility of alfoiuptnig extensive  rcl measures without it rtiicfik-  I'rotn the standpoint, of mo'-r-uito  . minalkiii, it would he diiHi-.u'.t to  'estimate the value of u kuow-  ,'(��������� of mosquito specks.
