Agricultural Associations Can

fiSMßainagggp g tores or to erect
poles and wires on lands of mem
bers of the association for distribu
tion to them of electric current or
for telephone service, but is simply
for co-operation in agricultural pur
poses, declares Deputy Attorney
General Emerson L. Collins in an
opinion to Guy C. Smith, the new
chief of the bureau of markets of
the Department of Agriculture.
The opinion is the first to be is
sued defining State policy in regard
to co-operative agricultural associa
tions which State authorities are
encouraging. These organizations
are to be without capital stock and
not for profit. "The object of the
act" says Mr. Collins." is to pro
vide a co-operative agency in cor
porate form to perform services in
the production, preparation for
market and marketing of farm pro
ducts and the purchasing or hiring
of farm supplies and labor. "It is
held that to allow such purposes as
telephone and electric lines and
stores, would be giving a liberality
of construction not contemplated by
the Legislature when it passed the
law. Otherwise it would "open up
to its members the whole general
domain of the public service utilities
by a method exclusively available
to those eligible to membership in
such an association."
In regard to the store proposition,
the opinion says that if it allowed
an agricultural association deal
in groceries for instance, "there
would be practically no limit set
upon the mercantile enterprises in
which it might engage."
There have been numerous co
operative enterprises chartered late
ly under general laws in which the
purpose is specifically set forth, but
thus far not many have applied for
incorporation as agricultural organ

slon of the matter by Insurance

son, William J. Roney, manager of
the Fund, saw the Governor to-day.
"It Is a matter that will have to
be gone Into carefully. You know
the State has an interest In that
