Those Oregon communities
that hud no delegates in attend
ance at the recent session of the
Oregon Development League at
Astoria suffered a distinct loss,
for Ihe meaty, valuable addresses
and discussions would have well
repaid anyone for the time spent
in attending, The Leaguers got
down to serious business; there
was no froth or wasted energy.
From the very first day the
convention was notable for the
valuable addresses presented.
Everyone was full of suggestions
that will play an important part
in the future ixjlicy of the League.
Men of the greatest eminence in
their various Una of activity
were on the progr.im. James J.
Hill, Theodore U. V.L-ox, Judge
Robert S. Lovett, a.i I others of
like larg calibere were heard
from, while the community boost
ersof the various sections came
prepared to get the most out of the
meeting by being on hand with
good suggestions and new ideas.
The slogan of the convention
was, "Get Together," along all
the lines of co-operative effort
that promise to accomplish so
much for the Northwest. The
placing of new arrivals on the
soil, preparation for reaping the
benefits to follow the Panama
I'acific Exposition, at San Fran
cisco in 1915, and good roads were
some of the vital topics thorough
ly discussed. La Grand will get
the next convention and every
live commercial organization in
the state should look forward to
it and have a bigger attendance
Improved fast freight service
has been provided by the rail
roads from Oregon orchards to
the East that will, no doubt, fac
ilitate the marketing of the years
cro,". The schedule provides for
an eigtit ana nine aay service
from the leading districts to Chi
cago and the special fruit cars
will leave Portland daily.
The Portland Commercial Club
is making efforts to have Pres
ident Taft include Oregon in his
western trip this year when he
comes to the coast to break
ground for the Panama-Pacific
Exposition. An invitation was
sent to him by wire to this effect
and he replied he would give the
matter consideration when his
itinerary is made up.
The value of experimental
farms to this state is shown in a
striking way by the results at
tained by the station in Morrow
County, maintained by the Ore
gon Agricultural College. Wheat
grown on this farm by scientific
dry farming methods went 22.G
bushels per acre while grain on
adjoining land, farmed under the
old way, was either too poor to
cut or yielded only ten or twelve
bushels an acre, Other crops
grown show a corresponding gain
when treated scientifically.
The Shaniko-Antelope district
will make a good exhibit of its
agricultural products at the
Dalles, where it will be maintain
d permanently, so that new
comers will see what opportuni
ties there are for farmers and
fruit growers. Excellent speci
mens for the exhibit are now be
Medford will give the use of
'XO acres of land to a capable
stockman whq will raise goats
The Southern Oregon city wants
to build up that district as a goat
center, for it is well adapted to
these sturdy animals that are so
valuable in clearing up brush
land and making it ready for
