One of Several&terestlsjf Iiectares
"Which. Marked Iat Day of. the
MLTON, Or., Nov. '21. The feature of
the farmere' and-dalrymen's Institute to
day was an earnest, spirited address by
Hon. E. I. Smith, of Hood River, urging
the fruitgrowers of the Walla Walla Val
ley to combine pn the Hood Hirer plan.
His text was "The Coalln' Moth,'' nJ
after he had spoken about spraying and
kindred topics he asked, "And after you
save harvested your fruit, what will yon
do with It? Is each man going to com
pete with his neighbor In, rushing1 th
fruit Into market and breaking the mar
Mr. Smith then briefly outlined the
Hood River Growers' Association, and
told of the benefits, contrasting the pres
ent entirely satisfactory conditions with
those of a few years ago, when every man
eent his fruit to market on his own ac
count. He stated that under the work
ings of the association this year's, crdp
of strawberries brought at least 50 cents
a crate, or $15,000, more than it possibly
could have sold 'tot without co-operation.
He begged fruitgrowers to abandon the
jealousy, suspicion and distrust which
must exist when men lived apart, and
to get together ,in confidence on a basis
This morning's session opened with an
able paper by Dr. "William McLean, State
Veterinarian, on "Tuberculosis In Cattle."
It provoked wide discussion.
Professor Charles V. Piper, professor of
biology In the "Washington Qtate Agri
cultural College, spoke on "Insects and
Fungus Pests," opening his subject with
the statement that Oregon and Washing
ton had already imported in nursery
stock from the Bast all the known' vari
eties except four"Yi?? Peach.yejlow, cur
culio, potato bug and chinch bug. He
said it was too late now to build a wall,
but not too late to control the posts that
are here. He dwelt at length on the fire
blight, which had destroyed many trees 5n
this neighborhood. There was no rem
edy oxcept to cut off and burn the af
Hon. E. I. Smith described briefly the
good and the poor orchards of Oregon,
and counseled farmers to plant fruit trees
only in deep, well-drained soil, 32 to SI
feet apart, and to select only well-known
varieties. The best trade now demands
straight carload lots of one kind. From
his own experience and the reports- ot
other Horticultural Commissioners In
Oregon, Mr. Smith showed the great ben
efit of spraying this year, and said that
the spray pump should te Ihe emblem,
of the fruitgrower, and "Spray, spray,,
H. M. Williamson, edifbr of the Rural
Northwest, spoke on "Farmer's Educa
tion," and said the main reason why
there are not more students in the agri
cultural courses in our agricultural col
leges Is that 99 farmers out of every 100
believe it is a waste of money to pay the
cost of a college course for their sons
who are to become farmers. The work
of agricultural education must begin with
the farmers through farmers' institutes,
then In the cemmon .schools, and tin the
schools of agriculture, which are inde
pendent. In the "agricultural colleges, as
now constituted, the spirit of the student
body is hostile to agricultural education
on account of the preponderance of those
who are nreDarimr to enter vocations-
-whloh they consider more Honorable than"
Customary resolutions of thanks were
passed all around, and. the institute ad

Grass in Morrow County1 Covered
HEPPNER, Or.. Nov! 2L Morrow
County is under -5-inch mantle of snow,
whloh fell last night. The "weather
today is clearlg.' The- thermometer at
Heppner 20 degrees above; at Hardman,
20 miles south ofherev degrees-above.
All range sheep here are now being
fed on alfalfa and grain hay, of which
every sheepman has an abundance. Most
sheepmen jhere are glad to see this snow.
It gives them a chance to use up their
surplus hay, and gives the range a chance
to rest. The- grass will grow under the
snow, and furnish fresh feed for stock
as soon as the ground gets bare again.

TITLE TO OREGON CITY LAND.
Court to Decide Dispute Bet-ween
Municipality and Railroad.
OREGON CITY, Nov. 2L The suit of
the municipality of Oregon City against
the Oregon & California Railroad Com
pany, to determine the title to a strip of
land along the bluff, and including tbe
railroad right of way for a distance of
seven or eight blocks, is being argued for
a final decision before the Circuit Court
today. The records show that Dr. John
McLoughlln, the founder of the city, dedi
catee tne strip- or land in question to the
city, but subsequently the railroad com
pany acquired title to the strip from the
Harveys, heirs of Dr. McLoughlln. The
company held undisputed possession of the
jitrip of land from 1857 until about two
years ago, when the city desired to build
a stairway from Eighth street to the top
of the bluff, and It was Incidentally
learned that the Orogon & California Rail
road Company claimed title to the now
disputed land. The city built the stair
way with the 'understanding that this
move did not prejudice, the claims of either
party, the railroad company consenting.

ROYAL LEGAL FIGHT IS ON
SA.T.EM LIGHT PLANT AND RAILWAY
The Falling; Oaf of, the Company
With Its Superintendent May
Fave ot Benefit to the State,
SALEM; Nov. 2L-,The taking, of testis
mony was concluded today In the suit
brought by the London & San Francisco
Bank to foreclose Its mortgage on the
electric light plant and street railway
lines of the. Salenx-Light & Traction Com
pany. The arguments have been deferred,
until the testimony can be extended from
the stenographic notes.
This is one of the hardest-fought cases
that has been tried recently in Marion
County, and because of the number of ad
verse interests It is one of the most com
plicated. The Important Interests are
four in number. The London & San Fran
cisco Bank has the most at stake, for its
claim of something like 5150,000 would
probably take all the property In litiga
tion if the liens should be established.
The bank Is represented by Dolph, Mal
lory & Simon. F. R, Anson, formerly
manager of the Salem Usht & Traction
Company, is In the case .because, he al
leges that he owns a portion of the per
sonal property upon which the bank
claims a Hen, and also alleges that "he
Should have other priorities, the whole
amounting to 59256. The third Interest is
represented by a second mortgage given
to secure notes now held by Allen &
Lewis. F. H. Page, F. R. Anson and E.
P. McCornack, this claim aggregating
about 5CO,000; The owners of the second
mortgage claim that their lien covers
property not included in the first mort
gage. The Salem Light & Traction Com
pany is the fourth party Jn Interest, but
as the lien claimants will get away with
all the property, the company has Uttls
to do In the case except to promote jus
tice among the other litigants and watch
th disposal of the wreckage. Mr. Anson
is represented by Ford. Kaiser & Slater,
Allen & Lewis by Cotton, Teal & Minor.
and the other litigants by George Q.
But while the parties directly inter
ested are 'making a warm fight, the public
generally Is not wholly disinterested. The
people do not care, what may be the out
come of the case, nor who may be the
victor, but they like to gee a disagree-?
ment. When producers of electric light
. and power fall out and quajrel, the con
sumers are In a fair way to profit by It.
In this case, at least, there s a good
prospect for such a result.
F. R. Anson, whose Interests were, for
merly with the Salem Light & Traction
Company, is now at the head of the Salem
Ught, Power & Steam Heating Company,
and Is establishing an electric plant for
the purpose of competing with the old
company. Tba. city, county and. state, are.
heavy consumers of electric light and
power, and, pf course, every taxpayer
in the state is interested In any contro
versy which may result in a reduction of
the expenses of state institutions.
The present lighting contract was made
In 1S93, and -does hot expire until 1903.
The provisions of this contract are such
that ah appropriation of about 530.000 Is
necessary at each session of the Legisla
ture for the payment of the lighting bills
at the Capitol, Penitentiary, Asylum and
Blind School. At each session there has
been an effort to relieve the state from
the burden of this contract, but by some
means the agitation against the contract
has always been stopped short of definite
action by the Legislature. The last Legis
lature went so far as to ask Attorney
General Blackburn for an opinion npon
the question of the binding effect of the
contract upon the state, and that official
rendered a brief opinion in which he ad
vised that the Btate can be held to the
There have beengreat changes in the"
lighting situation In Salem since the last
session, however, and It is said" that the
state's changes to rid Itself of this con
tract are particularly bright at this time,
I9 previous years Mr. 'Anson ha,s been
interested wltn the holder of the con
tract, and has, of course, supported the
legality of that Instrument The way he
maintained a burdensome contract with
the city In the face of strong opposition
la good evidence that he was capable of
guarding interests Intrusted to his care.
But now he is on the other side. His In
terests are adverse to the continuance of
the contract, apd it Is. rumored that he
will take a hand In the fight this Winter
for a cancellation of the agreement. The
old comnany, ander Mr. Anson's manage
ment wife ready to grant concessions in
order to keep the good "will of those in
authority, and perhaps some facts may
be brought to. light that will put a differ
ent phase on the question of the legal
ity of the contract If the present CQrt
tract can be avoided, lighting may be se
cured at . reauced rate, or the state" may
find it profitable to put In an electric light
plant at the Penitentiary for the purpose
of lighting all the state institutions,
which are not far separated,

State Printing Board in Washington
Confronted by Hard Problem,
'OLYMPIA, Nov. 2L The question of
Printing the biennial reports of tie state
officials to be submitted to the Governor
and Legislature of 1901 is. perplexing the
State Printing Board not a little, owing
to the nearly exhausted condition ot the,
printing and binding fund appropriated by
the Legislature of 1899. Will D. JenkW
Secretary of State, has. addressed a com
munication to Assistant Attorney-General
Vance, asking if the State Printing Board.

der to use. the money remaining in the

Assistant Attorney-General Vance re
plies that the requisition of any state de
partment for a reaaonible amount of sta
tionery and printing must be honored by
the Printing Board, regardless of bow
much the money Is needed, for other pur
poses. As there remains less than. 52000
in the printing f und? it Is quite likely that
the; only way out of the situation is for
the state officers to submit to the Gov

special printing fund the first few days
of the session, in order that thereports

GRANT'S PASS, Or., Nov. ZL B. E.
Meredith, superintendent of the Wilson
Meredith bydra.ufle mine, has just com
pleted the suspension bridge for bis pipe
line over the Illinois River, In Josephine
