More farms were sold throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho anti Mon- tana last month than in any other June in the bank's history. The bank has had most of its suc- cess in disposing of land in Fe'y, Stevens and Okanogan counties where 21 farms have been soht so far this year, and in the section in the vicinity of Vancouver, where there were also 21 sales.

Elimination of the C grade means a cut of approximately 8,000 ears in the amount of fruit which ill be shipped from the state this fall. With the July 1 estimate placed at 35,600. ears this is well over 20 per cent of the total estimated crop. By this method the apple imlustry answered the presidents of three northwest railroads who earlier in the week refused to give any relief from the war-time freight rates whicia still prevail in the apple industry. Industry Indignant Indignation ow:r summary refusal of the raih'oad leaders to consider further the plight of al)ple growers of the Northwest is general in this district, with civic leaders, fruit growers, shippers and business men denouncing the stand taken, The Great Northern railroad, term- ed a "public enemy" yesterday by C. T. Haskell, president of the Wen- atehee Chamber of Commerce, will suffer a cut of $2,000,000 it is esti- mated. This is on a hasis of 3,000 cars of C g'rade and cut/ fruit being shipped f.rom Wenatchee.

And the woods are full of them this year as always; Hooers Speaks To Governors President Herbert Hoover in ad- dressing a conference of Governors recently said: "Today we are clearly absorbing too great a portion of the national income for the onduct of our various branches of government."

(Continued On Second Page) "The Great Northern and other railroads are exacting an unjust, un- warranted, exorbitant and extortion- ate freight rate which is virtually an embargo upon the apple industry and other industries," Haskell said. "If a foreign power sent a fleet over and closed one of our seaports to commerce, we would coasider it an act which justified a declaration, yet this is exactly what the Great Northern raih'oad is doing to the ap- ple industry of this district." Larrabee Backs Statement Mr. I,arrabee, who also attended tile conference with the raih'o'td presidents at St. Paul, June 27, con- eurred in Mr. Haskell's statements. The apple men are continuing their efforts to divert 2,500 ears to inter- coastal shipment by water. I f they are successful in this move 10,500 cars will have been cut from the ton- nage of the railroads. The figures represent at least 25 t)er cent of the tonnage of fruit hauled from. this state. "It is a wonderful thing, the way the industry came through on elimin- ation of the C ga'ade," declared John Larrabee, Pateros grower and chair- man of the intercoastal transporta- tion committee of the North Central Washington Growers' Assocbttion. "By its action tle industry has prov- ed that it was the vitality and cour- age to stand up and fight. We are iust entering the battle now. The raih'oads have refused to listen to us, but we've hit them now where they are bound to feel it--in the )ocketbook."
