December 1, 1913
The circuit court will resume its sessions Tuesday morning after the Thanksgiving recess. The case of H.C. Kentner, the last on the criminal docket — charged with the embezzlement of $5,000 from the H.C. Kentner company, with which he was formerly connected — will be called. Upon the completion of this trial, the civil docket will begin.
A year ago before the Oregon State Horticultural society, C.E. Whisler of Medford proposed a national law to standardize the apple box and its contents along the lines similar to the Sulzer law now in effect concerning the apple barrel and its contents. This measure was unanimously adopted and was afterward approved by the state horticultural societies of Washington, Idaho and Montana. On November 18, 1913, at a conference held during the Spokane apple show, some slight changes were adopted. It will again be referred to the state horticultural societies that assisted in its inception. All fruit concerns, interests or growers are invited to add the weights of their endorsements to the proposed law and forward same to C.E. Whisler at Medford at an early date, as it is expected that the bill will be introduced in Congress during the next session.
