It was an Oregon herd that of J.
B. Stump & Son, of Monmouth that
swept everything before it in the Jer
sey cattle division, and it was the
University of Idaho exhibit that made
almost a clean record in the fat sheep
and the fat steer competitions.
The Stump family added further to
its honors by winning four champion
ships and two grand championships
with their Berkshire hogs.
Competition among the hog classes
was confined principally to Oregon en
tries. K. W. Hogg, of Salem, took
high honors in the Poland China divis
ion and E. Schoel, of Albany, in the
Chester White division.
In the Holstein division of dairy
cows the famous herd of Monroe &

His attention was called to a mes

Portland, Or. Complete returns

amendment and b(n i issue voted on at
the special city election was over

won the campionship of the world at
the National Dairy Show in Chicago.
In fact the whole Stump herd came in
for much attention.
Tom Dempsey, of Westerville, O.,
who judged the Jerseys, says that the
Stump herd is competent to compete
against anything in America.

"While I say that the Stump herd
has a right to show against the East

other Jerseys are not competent to en

speak of the Stump cattle principally
because they made the best record."
CANCER MICROBE FOUND

Montpelier, France Dr. Bosc, pro
fessor of pathological anatomy at the
University of Montpelier, who has
been making extensive investigations
into cancer, declares he has discovered

Drillers Burned By Gas.
Taft, Cal. Five men, seriously
burned, are in the hospital and a sixth
was injured when a great body of gas
was encountered in the Standard well
near here. The men burned are F. L.
Brittain, J. F. Richardson, R. W. Pat
terson, Otto Munson and L. O. Davis.
The drill was down only 700 feet when
the gas was encountered. There was
a great roar of the escaping vapor and
in a second the air was a mass of
flames. The workmen were caught In
the midst of the fire. The rig was
destroyed and the well is burning.
Runaways Upset Hearse.

of Samuel Sorenson, a miner killed by
the recent slide of rock in the Golden
Circle mine, was recovered and started

the horses hitched to the hearse be
came frightened and broke loose from
the conveyance. The casket and
corpse were hurled down a 40-foot de
clivity into many feet of snow. It
took shovelers two hours to dig the
body from the drift.
Higher Price for Hops
Is Predicted By Grower
Portland Conrad Krebs, one of the
best-known hopgrowera in the West,
believes this commodity should bring
higher prices. lie bases his belief on
the fact that an unusual quantity of
American hops is being shipped to
Europe and that sooner or later the
American brewers will wake up to the
situation and find there are not enough
hops left to go around. Manipulators,
who sold a large part of the Oregon
crop "short," have been trying to
force the market to a lower level, but
Mr. Krebs declares that conditions
warrant much higher prices. He
"Taking statistics as a basis for
the prices of any farm product, hops
should sell at 40 cents, but In reality
the present market stands at 20i21c.
If production and consumption have
anything to do with the ultimate
price of 1913 hops, then we will see at
least 35 cents paid before next bep-1
"The maximum crop of the Unite! ;
Stales is estimated at 800,000 bales.

Oregon's Corn Show
Pendleton With 150 entries and
more than 5000 ears of corn on exhib
it, the Corn Bhow opened in this city.
There were exhibits from every
county in Oregon penetrated by the
O.-W. R. & N. company, under whose
auspices the show was held.
C. L. Smith, agriculturist for the
railroad, declares the corn on display
compared favorably with any dis
played at any show in the country,
and says the exhibit demonstrates that
there is no section of Oregon in which
Orcffon Boosters Make
1 Showing at Chicago
Chicago Oregon made good Satur
day at the United States Lund Show
in the Coliseum in the prediction that
it would show the Middle. West the
true meaning of the term "boosting."
It was Oregon day at the exposition
nd if anyone doubted it that doubt
was soon dispelled by the Amalgamat
ed Association of Oregon Boosters, not
Representatives of nine commercial
clubs, development leagues and com
missions and special commissioners ap
pointed by Governor West united in
celebrating the day.
All day long the aisle near the ex
hibit of the Oregon State Immigra
tion commission was crowded with
visitors. The Oregon boosters gave
14 illustrated lectures in the Great
Northern railway lecture hall and the
regular exposition halls.
Two men who attracted considera
ble attention were William Hanley,
the Harney county ranchman, and I).
at. l-AJwe, Bfjeciai rejrt:fjeniaiivc ui iu?
Ashland Commercial club, who has an
exhibit of 314 products grown on his
Rogue River Valley ranch. Colonel
Hanley gave two lectures, interesting
the visitors with personal stories of
how homesteaders are "making good"
In the evening the Oregonians sere
naded the different exhibits, accom
panying from booth to booth the Ro
tary Quartet, of Chicago, singing Ore
gon songs. The Royal Rosarians and
the Eugene Radiators, in uniform,
accompanied the singers. I). M.

Railroad Buys at Eugene.
Eugene By agreement, the South
ern Pacific company has just paid
$5000 to Mrs. Annie McClaren for
2.31 acres of land at the Western lim
its of Eugene, in order that a "Y"
may be laid to connect the main line
of the Southern Pacific with the tracks
of the Willamette-Pachc. The con
nection now made gives direct access
to the coast line from the East on the
Southern Pacific, and it is desired to
have another branch from the North
west. The whole of the included tri
angle is purchased.
Cream Rates Protested.
Salem The Portland Pure Milk and
Cream company has filed a complaint
with the State Railroad commission
against the American Express com
pany, alleging that its rates for send
ing cream over the O.-W. R. & N. be
tween Portland and other places in
Oregon are excessive. Eight other
Portland creameries also have signed
a petition which has been filed with
the commission protesting against the
Oakland Skunks Plentiful.
Oakland Skunks are so plentiful In
this vicinity that catching them has
become a lucrative occupation. A lo
cal barber has $135 worth fit skins of
animals caught during recesses from
tonsorial duties and Ralph Lucas, a
high school boy, took a day off from
the study of algebra and composition
to catch enough of the animals to
bring him $18.
1 rels of beer the coming year. Accord
ing to the Internal revenue figures .7
' pound per barrel of hops are being
used, or a total of 2t''J,000 bales, to
which must be added 10,000 bales re
quirtd for other purposes, such as
yeast, etc., making a grand total of
iTK.OOO. Exports to all countries
amount to 105, 000 bales, and by the
time the entire crop ' marketed, the
exports will be at least 130,000 bales.
IniHrts will not exceed 20,000 bales.
That leaves for home c iiiuitptiun
190,000 bales, or a shortage of r.iM00
"Assuming that the 1911 crop, with
the surplus on hand at the time, did
not more than meet requirements, and
the 1912 crop did not leave much sur
plus, we are confronted with a peculiar
condition. The reason for the present
low price of hops must be assigned to
the financial condition of the brewers,
who, unlike other years, must pay
cash, and they simply buy for imme
diate requirements, not realizing the
great shortage existing and the prob
able advance of 20 cents per pound
later on. I can see nothing but 35
corn cannot be satisfactorily grown.
Some of the largest ears of corn ever
j exhibited in the United States were
I here from Baker county.
I With most of the entries were re
ports of yields per acre and cost per
bushel. On irrigated land the produc-
I tion runs as high as 85 bushels per
acre, and on dry land from 25 to 45
bushels. The most successful yields
are all from seed pnnlueed in Oregon.
The universal experience is that seed
imported from the East does not do
well until acclimated.
Many Klk Soon On
Kastorn Oregon Range
Pendleton Several head of elk are
along the Walla Walla river, just east
of Milton, according to the mail car
rier on the route extending up the
river from Milton. He says he saw a
cow and a calf feeding at a haystack
near a ranch house, not more than two
miles from town, and that a bull, cow
and calf were seen at what is known
as "The Elbow" on the river, 12 miles
from town. This is the first time any
of these animals have been seen in
that section for many years, though
thev were numerous in early days.
Tho matter has been reported to the
district game warden here, who says
if the report Is correct, the animals
must be part of a herd brought over
from Yellowstone Park last winter by
WBlla Walla county sportsmen. Tho
theory had been advanced that the
animals mitrht be a part of the Oregon
herd, brought over from Jackson Hole
and now being held in the state's big
ganne refuge in Wallowa county. The
local game authorities do not believe
this to be possible.
No Relief From Liability
Salem The Supreme court. Justice
Burnett writin r the opinion, in affirm
ing a verdict for the plaintiff in the
case of O. W. Dunn aga'nst the Orch
ard Land & Timber company, c'early
defined the employers' liability act.
The plaintiff was awarded damages
for injuries received in falling from a
slab haul operated by the defendant
company in Lane county. It was al
leged that the board walk upon which
the plaintiff worked was not supplied
with a proper railing.
Citing that the act requires all
scaffolding and staging more than 20
feet from the ground or flwr shall be
i gence of tho person injured shall not
be a defense, but may be taken into
account by the jury in fixing The dam
ages. The opinion further says:
"The statute having made it a crim
inal offense on the part of the employ,
er to create or maintain an avoidable
risk, the contract of the workmen for
employment will not be construed to
include such a hazard, because that
would be to contract for a violation of
law by at least one of the parties, and
hense void as against public policy."
Wormy Apples Are Found.
Portlapd County Fruit Inspector
Stansberry condemned 60 boxes of
wormy apples on Front street, while on
an inspection tour, and ordered them
returned to the growers.
The inspector has started on a cam
paign to rid the markets of unsound
fruit and will require everything that
is not up to the standard to be re
turned to the shipper. If this course
does not suffice to keep wormy, dis
eased apples and other fruits out of
the city, he will take other steps
sgainst the growers.
Salmon F.ggn Reach Wedderburn.
Wedderburn Deputy Fish Warden
Jewell, of Portland, came here a few
days ago with about 1,000,000 salmon
ejrgs for the Indian Creek hatchery.
The eggs arrived In good condition,
though Mr. Jewell had a strenuous
trip with them, coming on the Break
water to Coos Bay, thence to Bandon
by rail and boat, and from Bandon to
Wedderburn on a spring- wagon pulled
by four horses.
