A up;. 22 (Special) 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 next time. 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 ing gathered. 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 orchards.
