TRY OUT 'BUDDING
HOPES IH KLAMATH
Politicians Adopt New Plan
for Launching Campaigns
MOTIVES NOT EXPLAINED
J. IV. Bailey, State Food and DairJ
Commissioner, Follows In Foot
steps of Fulton- and Mulkey.
Would Be Governor.
Klamath County has come to be re
garded aa the place to try out budding
political hopea. If they survive a Journey
across the burning sands and curling
sagebrush of that great county, they
may be safely trusted, in other portions
of the state. At least that Is tire belief
of this Summer's crop of politicians. v it
ness ex-Senator Mulkey's trip there, and
Senator Fulton's, to feel the pulse of
Klamath County before malting his public
announcement: also that of J. W. Bailey,
State Dairy and food Commissioner. Mr.
Bailey has Just returned from that sec
tion, where he is said to have heard nu
merous inhabitants tell how they would
like to have for their next Governor a
man named Bailey.
Soothsayers and witches were invari- j
ably consulted in the good old days that j
the histories tell about, but these occult
personages are not In it with the people
of Klamath. Even the Delphic oracle
that gave sassy answers that might mean
anything is discounted somewhat by the
Pooh Bahs of the Klamath County cross
roads towns. It is the very latest thing
in Summer booms to "try it on the dog,"
with Klamath County voters as the first
night audience. '
Perhaps thts is because Klamath County
is so far away - from the rest of the
state that any political hints dropped
down there will not reach the home of the
budding statesman who scatters them un
til after the election, anyhow. Or perhaps
it Is Just because a man is never so much
appreciated aa when he is a long way
Maintains Discreet Silence.
Whether the word of Klamath County
was encouraging or dampening. Food
Commissioner Bailey declines to say. Of
course he says his trip had no political
significance, and then he talks about what
a .great county it is. After which he
launches forth on an extended oration
about "great latent resources" and
Commissioner Bailey is rather strong
in yiis state. He ran ahead of his ticket
at the last two elections when he was
chosen to his present office, and his
friends say he has met so many voters
at- farmers1 institutes. Grange meetings
and schoolhouse pie fights that he knows
every man, woman and child on all the
n. F. D. routes. Of course, he has not
talked politics, but has confined his in
teresting remarks to the best way to in
duce the family cow to give down her
milk and how to manage a wayward slx-months-old
calf. In these matters Mr.
Bailey is a high expert. His large
knowledge of livestock and farming has
made him known everywhere In the
country. And , his enforcement of the
pure food laws, especially, as to clean
dairying and honest milk have spread his
The scientific treatment of these prob
lems has always been interesting where
they are of vital importance, and the
people Mr. Bailey has so assiduously
mingled with are more enlightened as a
result of his numerous visits than if he
had argued pro anu con the question
whether it Is best to paint the White
House green. So Mr. Bailey has made a
sort of silent appeal to the households
of the alfalfa belt. And who can say
that it was not effective? Careful dairy
men think more of their blooded stock
than they do of anything outside ofthe
family circle, anyhow, and when they
find a man who knows something about
these slee'k fat rooney-makers, they have
a natural affection for him.
Will Get Dairy Vote.
If Mr. Bailey runs for Governor in 1910
he will get the votes of the Dairymen's
Union, hands dAwn. More talkative can
didates may spout about the needs of the
state until they empty the benches, but
the farmer will know that-if Mr. Bailey
is elected his cattle will have a friend at
court, and the best interests of a farm
er's cattle are his own.
It would be only right If Mr. Bailey
made the race on a platform promising
njore cutter rat from every cow. The
chances are the cows would do their best
to make good. Anyway, his campaign
if he should "be induced by his friends
. to permit his name to be used," will be
the first known instance of the dairy
mm in politics.
'The Immensity of the country over
which I passed was my one prevailing
thought. Mountains of timber, oceans
of water and the richest of agricultural
lands all make a great garden equal to
that of any in the world. It is a pity
that the people of this day in Oregon
cannot receive the full value and
wealth of these magnificent timber
lands, for they are now owned by East
ern corporations which are holding
them Idle tor speculative train.
"Klamath Falls is a beautiful place
of perhaps 13D0 people. Probably one-
third of the entire population of
Klamath County live here. I und the
peoplo enthusiastic over the resources
of that section and they are anxiously
awaiting the coming of a railroad so
that they can get the products of their
rarms and mills to the outside world.
AVork of Irrigation.
"There is a good sawmill and also a
fine flour mill there, but neither is run
ning, to its full capacity for lack of
market.- The Federal Government is
doing a great work in this section with
Its irrigation and reclamation service.
but the people are getting restless at
!he slow progress being made and think
that the work could be done faster
and cheaper by contracts. Leaving cost
out of the question, 'which the land
owner will eventually have to pay,' my
judgment is that there Is plenty of land
to be cultivated that does not now and
never will need to be irrigated. In fact,
there is a real danger that much of the
land may be ruined by over-watering
it. This has been done In many sections
where the soil contains alkali, as it
does here. Too much water brings the
alkali to the surface, where it kills all
vegetation. It seems to me that a
greater benefit will come from draln
( Ing the marsh lands which contain a
wealth that will last for ages.
'Twenty-five miles east of Klamath
Falls lies Bonanza, a town of 310 or 400.
Here I found one of the most com
plete creameries to -be found . any
where. It was built by co-operation
of the merchants and the farmers, who
expected" to run It at a loss for several
years if necessary, to encourage the
varied Interests there, but it will prob
abl; toot only pay expenses but even a
small profit the first year.
"Going north, from Klamath Falls I
passed through the Modoc Indian reser
vation on which are from 1000 to 1200
Indians. This land and that around
Klamath Falls is the best for stock
raising that I saw on my whole trip.
The altitude Is too high and the sea
sons too short for general farming, but
better beef and dairy cattle cannot bo
found than are n this section.
"At Crater Lake we were royally en
tertained by W. G. Steel, who has pro
vided accommodations for travelers at
that wonderful, spot. Crater Lake is
beyond the power of words to describe.
We spent Sunday forenon on the lake
and had the honor of being the first
party to ride In the first launch to float
on Crater Lake. I want to say right
here that Oregon owes an eternal debt
to Mr. Steel as being the mainspring in
securing Crater Lake for a National
park. In time Crater Lake is sure to
become one of the best known resorts
in the world.
"A few days' stage ride through toe
mountains brought us to Medford, one
of the best towns of the state. The
general prosperity here can be guessed
from the fact that in and around Med
ford there are 54 automobiles.
"At Ashland I found the fruit crop
short but of good quality; and the high
prices will keep the net returns up to
Mr Ballev will remain a few days
in Portland and will then visit the
Coast counties of Coos and Tillamook.

Mr. Sainpolis went Fast, and was im
pressed with the Idea of branching out
into business there. He organized a
stock company at Lynn. Mass., and an
other in Boston, with Lillian Lawrence
as leading woman. After a few weeks
th- business fell away, and recently
he has been reported to be losing heav

substantial resources he might make

reputation. His misfortune is gener

here, but there may be others.

Idaho Americanism Ideal.
This is the first time I was ever west
of Chicago and the trip has been a revela.
tion to me. I never expected to see sucn
a manifestation of ideal Americanism sjs
I saw at Boise. The people there went
about their business during the trial and
there was absolutely no irresponsible and'
incendiary talk. The citizens or tne
town absolutely did not discuss the case
on the streets and only in homes and in
clubs would you hear the merits of the
case spoken of. In this way there was
no chance for the disorder that almost as
suredly . would have followed the indis
criminate threshing out of the affair on
the street cornerB. It was admirable.
"Idaho has done herself proud. A
fairer trial was never accorded any man
than Haywood had. The sentiment of
the. people was: 'If Haywood is guilty,
hang him; if Innocent, set him free.' And
this was exactly the procedure followed.
"Guilt was not established to the de
gree required by the law, and the peo
ple are willing to let it go at that.
It was in its way an unique demonstra
tion of the majesty of toe law, and
the respect our people have for It, for,
while many still believe the defendant
guilty, there was an acquiescence in
the Jury's verdict.
Praises Borah's Speech.
"The trial was notable in many re
spects. The finest and most affecting
oratorical effort I ever heard In my life
was Senator Borah's speech, and the
fairness of Judge Wood and the oppos
ing? counsel toward each other was
ideal. All In all, the trial of Haywood
will have a benefiical effect, perhaps
a greater because he was not convicted
because there tan be no charge of un
fairness or prejudice brought against
anyone who was connected with it."
