FRIDAY, MAY 24, 1901
Washington, 1.C., May 13 1901
Minister Conger talked at every
stopping place between l'ekin and
Washington, but since he reported
at the Popartmont he has boon at
mum as a clam, except to reverse
the assertion he made just after
landing at San Francisco, as to
China's ability to pay indemnities,
This may be merely a coincidence,
but the impression is that he has
been oflicially informed that he has
been doing too much talking (or
0. M. Schwab, President of the
"Billion dollar Trust." otherwise
known as the United States tUoel
Company, recently organized by J.
Pierpont Morgan, drew one of the
largest audiences that have yet
attended a hearing before the In
dustrial Commission, just as he is
said to draw the largest salary ever
paid any wan. From Mr. Schwab's
point of view, his trust is about the
best thins that ever happened. It
will not reduce wages and it will
not increase prices, although he did
acknowledge that it would greatly
reduce the number of employes
He took evasion to whack the labor
organizations, but, of course that

drove those' organizations out of the
Hon. C. D. Randall, of Coldwater
Mich., a retired banker who is sec
retary and treasurer of the board of
control for the Michigan state pub
lic echoil, is visiting Washington
I nthe course uf a conversation lie
said: "Ex-Governour Pingree has
gone to South Africa. It is auppo
eed his mission there is to establish
a sale for the shoes manufactured
in his shops. Michigan does not
miss him, for meu are soon forgot
ten when they go out of office. He
undoubtedly had some good ideas
and likewise some bad ones. In
the last two years there has devel
oped in southern Michigan, a new
industry, the making of Portland
cement One of the chief ingredi
ents is marl, which is found in the
Bwamp lands in the vicinity of
coldwater. Marl is pure white in
color, made by decomposed shells,
and borings have shown that it
exists in quantities to supply all
demands for hundreds of years
The cement is made by mixing the
marl with clay and baking it hard,
after which it is ground to powder
by powerful pressure."
One of the differences between
England and the U. B. was strongly
accentuated by Mr It. M. Deeley, a
mechanical engineer connected with
the Midland Railway of England,
who is making a tour of this coun
try in search of improved railway
ideas, in a conversation concerning
the Wall streot crash, caused by
the contest of two millionaire syn
dicates for control of the Northern
Pacific Railroad, when he said: "A
great railroad war like that which
Las figured in Wall street oper

improbable in England, for the
reason that a very large portion of
the stock of our railroads is held by
trustees and estates, and by other
interests as permanent inventments
and could not be secured in the
open market except for prices that
no one would bo willing to pay.
Independence people were much
disappointed to learn that the
President had been obliged to can
eel his date through Oregon, and
thus deprive them of an opportun
ity of seeing and hearing a "live
president" for once in their lives,
However, uovenor oeer secured a
promise from Mr. McKinely that
he would visit Oregon before his
term was out. That's good,
Independence has a few people
who send off to the mail" order
houses for things occasionally; also
a few business men who use stock
biJl and and letter heads; also some
who, disliking Postmaster Wheeler,
send off to other towns for their
postage stamps. We also have
Bome who want the. editor to keep
puffing up the town and county,
without any assistance or support,
moral or financial, from these same
individuals. If there is anything
especially good in the paper one
week, it is passed over as a matter
of course; but let a little squib
derogatory to one of these censors
appear in an obscure corner of the
paper and the editor is called all
kinds of names. But such is lifel
King Edward VIPs salary has
been placed at $2,284,000 a year, a
large figure, but a monarch who
makes no foolish speeches deserves
to be well paid.
Happily the time has panned
When the largest American ships
must go to Halifax to be docked.
Uncle Sam has pulled away from
hat era of small things,
A fool EiswpU.
Bankor Hirschberg, of Independ
ence, has set an example to money
ed men who expect to profit by the
development of the dairy industry
which is well worthy of emulation.
Although it has been already dem
onstrated that the manufacture of
butter and cheese is destined to be
come of vast importance to the
state, the business hat reached the
point where progress is barred by
the lack of ready money with which
to stock pastures with good milch
cattle. When the average farmer
balances accounts for the year he
finds the margin of profit so nar
row that he has little capital to Id
vest in cows, and as a result he re
luctantly turns away from btanch
ins out into a field he feels sure
would vleld irood returns. Mr,
Hirschberg has come to. hit relit)
by offering to lend him money with
which to purchase cows, exactly as
the country banks furnish the
money with which the wheatraisers
harvest their crops. If, in addition
to his cattle, the farmer sees fit to
tquip himself with a separator, Mr,
Hirschberg stands ready to ad
vance him what is nectssary to buy
one. In this way he hat already
materially increased the patronag
of the Independence creamery,
given the dairy Industry in the vi
ciuity a decided stimulus, and tak
en no risks beyond those ordinary
incident to his busluess.
The ultimate success of dairy
farming in Oregon depends upon
the willingness of capitalists to as
sist it, and Mr. Hirschberg is the
first to undertake voluntarily to do
so. The creameries already estah
lished must rely on the farmers to
suridy them with raw material
and if the farmers are enabled no
only to keep up their hords but to
enlarge and improve them by the
addition of strains of better blood
not only will these creameries beep
their churns in operation, but
others will spring up to take care
of tit surplus milk that will soon
be furnished, and Oregon will be
come famous as a prosperous dairy
state. There is plenty of capital in
Portland today seeking investimont
and certainly it could be put to no
better use than in building up
business which will prove of im
mediate benefit to the state and
California furnishes an example
which proves that Mr. Hirschberg
has used good judgement in this
latest business venture. Two years
ago a large ice plant was built at
Fresno, in the San Joaquin Valley,
To utilize the considerable amount
of cold-storage space available it
was suggested that a creamery be
established; but, as in the William-
ette Valley, the farmers had few
cows and no monoy to buy mure.
The management, however, proceed
ed to interest capital, and soon
succeeded in securing what money
the farmers needed to purchase
herds. Farmers who would agree
to care properly for their stock and
furnish milk to the creameries were
advanced money to buy cows on a
basis of easy payments at a low
rate of interest. Today, as a result
10,000 pounds of butter are turned
out of the Fresno creamery daily
and the plant promises to become
the largest of its kind in the United
A few months ago a carload of
heifers, which are badly needed to
day in Oregon, were shipped from
Kosehurg to Fresno. These heifers
should never have been allowed to
leave the state, and if Mr. Hirsch
berg's example is generally follow
ed, there will be a demand hereafter
for all the young stock the state can
produce. What has been done in
California can be accomplished in
Oregon with far less energy, as the
conditions for dairying are far more
favorable here. It is to be hoped
that the seed sown by the Inde
pendence banker will bear fruit,
and that it will soon be as much
part of the business of the country
banker to lend money to stock the
pastures aB to furnish funds with
which to harvest the crops. rOre-
