WASHINGTON". Feb. -H to lm
prove country life and make It more at
tractive as well as more profitable, is
discussed by President ""
mcssase which he sent to -nK
SaVrith the report of the Country ( Life
Commission. He follows a
slon of the subject with 80mrecommen
datinns which can be earned out both
pv National and state legislation,
t the outset he say. that the inquiry
has not involved the nd"" ."5,
dollar of public money The com mission
ras- held 30 public hearings in .40 1 states
and territories and received 120.000 an
swers to printed questions. He then
says "the commission finds that the
general level of country life is high com
pared with any preceding t.me or with
any other land. If It has in
slipped down in some places, it has risen
in more places. Its progress has been
g-neral. If not uniform.-
But farming does not yield either the
profit or the satisfaction it ought, there
is dissatisfaction and the movement to
the towns is still strong.
Slake Former's Life Ieslrable.
The object of the Commission is to
call the farmers- attention to the oppor
tunities for better business and better
living on the farm. If country life is to
become one of the most dignified, desir
able and sought-after ways of earning
a living, the farmer must take advantage
not only of agricultural knowledge, but
of the methods which have raised and
continue to raise the standards of liv
ing and of Intelligence In other callings.
One of the chief difficulties is the fail
ure of country life, as It exists at pres
ent to satisfy the higher social and in
tellectual aspirations of country people.
"Country life has Improved greatly in
attractiveness, health and comfort, and
earnings. But city life Is advancing even
more rapidly. The introduction of ef
fective agricultural co-operation Is or
the first Importance. Where farmers are
organized co-opcratlvely they not only
avail themselves much more readily of
business opportunities and Improved
methods, but the organizations which
bring them together in the work of their
lives are used also for social and Intel
Co-operation Main Solution.
"It Is not the problem of the farmers
alone that I am discussing with them,
but a problem which affects every city
as well as every farm in the country. It
Is a problem which also affects In only
less degree all the rest of us.
"The welfare of the farmer Is of Tltal
consequence to the welfare of the whole
community. The strengthening of country
life, therefore. In the strengthening of the
"The commission has tried to help the
farmers to see clearly their own prob
lem and to see It as a whole; to distin
guish clearly between what the Govern
ment can do and what the farmers must
do for themselves; and it wishes to bring
not only the farmers but the Nation as a
whole to realize that the growing of
crops, though an essential part. Is only a
part of country life. It Is no less es
sential foundation, but It Is no less es
sential that the farmer shall get an ade
quate return for what he grows; and It is
no less essential indeed It is literally
vital that he and his wife and children
shall lead the right kind of life.
"For this reason, the United States
Department of Agriculture should be
become without delay in fact a depart
ment of country life, fitted to deal not
only with crops, but also with all the
largest aspects of life in. the open coun
try. Three Tilings Xeeded.
"From all that has been done and
learned, three great general 'and Imme
diate needs of country life stand out:
"First Effective co-operation among
farmers, to put them on a level with the
organized Interests with which they do
"Second A new kind of schools in the
country, which shall teach the children as
much outdoors as Indoors and perhaps
more, so that they will prepare for coun
try life, and not as at present, mainly lor
life In town.
"Third Better means of communica
tion. Including good roads and a parcels
post, which the country people are every
where, and Tightly, unanimous In demanding.
"To these may well be added better
sanitation, for easily preventable diseases
hold several million country people In the
slavery of continuous ill health.
"The commission points out, and I con
cur in the conclusion, that the mostilm
rwirtnnt heln that the Government, wheth
er National or state, can give Is to show
the people how to go about these tasks
of organization, education ana communi
cation with the best and quickest results.
This can be done by the collection and
spread of Information.
The President recommends an appro
priation of J25.O0O to enable the Commis
sion to digest the material it na coi
lectcd. and to collect and to digest much
more that Is within its reach, and thus
comnlete its work. He continues:
"To Improve our system of agriculture
seems to me the most urgent of the tasks
which lie before us. Our object should be
to helD develop In the country commu-
nlty the great Ideals of community life as
well as of personal character, one oi me
most Important adjuncts to this end must

"I warn my countrymen mat me Brcai
recent progress made In city life is not a
full mpajura of our civilization: for our
civilization rests at bottom on the whole
aomenesa, the attractiveness, and the
completeness, as well as tne prospemj,
of life in the country. The men and wo
men on the farms stand for what Is fun
damentally best and most needed in our
American life. Upon the development of
country life rests ultimately our ability,
by methods of farming requiring the
highest intelligence, to conUnue to. feed
and clothe the hungry nations; to supply
the city with fresh blood, clean bodies,
and clear brains that can endure the ter
rific strain of modern life; we need the
development of men in the open country,
who will be In the future, as In the past,
the stay and strength of the Nation in
time of war, and Its guiding and control
ling spirit In time of peace."
What Agriculture Lacks.
The commission says agriculture Is
prosperous and conditions are Improv
ing in many regions, the American
farmer was never as well off; yet "agri
culture Is not commercially as profit
able as It Is entitled to be for the labor
and energy that the farmer expends
and the risks that lie assumes, and that
the social conditions in the open coun
try are far short of their possibilities."
The chief faults In agricultural life
are declared to be lack of knowledge
of agricultural conditions and possibili
ties, resulting in depletion of the soil;
lack of proper training for country life
In the schools, good highway facilities,
and organization for buying and sell
ing. The commission adds:
There la an absence of any adequate sys
tem of agricultural credit, a hortae of
labor, often complicated by Intemperance
amort: workmen; a lack of Institutions and
Incentives that tie the laboring man to the
oil; the life of the farm woman l burden
some and narrow; there Is need of adequate
supervision of public health.
The farmer Is handicapped by the specu
lative holding of lands, monopolize con
trol of streams and forests, waste of our
National resources, and by restraint of
Many existing org-aniatlons and Institu
tions might become practically co-operative
or mutual In spirit, as for example, all ag
ricultural societies, libraries. Young Men's
Christian Associations and churches. All the
organizations standing for rural progress
should be federated In states and Nation.
There must be a vast enlargement of vol
untary, organized effort among farmers
themselves. It is indispensable that farmers
shall work together for their common Inter
ests and for the National welfare. The
forces and institutions that make for mor
ality and spiritual Ideals among rural peo
ple must be energized.
New Kind of Education.
There must be a new kind of education
adapted to the real needs of the farming
people. Opportunities for training toward
the agricultural callings are to be multi
plied and made broadly effective. This
means redoubled efforts for better country
schools, and a vastly Increased Interest In
the welfare of country boys and girls on
the part of those who pay the school taxes.
Education by means of agriculture Is to be
a part of our regular public school work.
Special agricultural schools are to be or
The country people everywhere are asking
for good roads. Everywhere, too, they want
a parcels post and the extension of the
rural free delivery.
Some Fundamental Needs.
There are two or three movements of the
utmost consequence that should be set un
der way at the earliest possible time be
cause they are fundamental to the whole
problem of permanent reconstruction. There
should be organized under Government lead
ership a comprehensive plan for an exhaus
tive study or survey of all the conditions
that surround the business of farming and
the people who live In the country, in order
to take stock of our resources and to supply
the fanner with, knowledge.
Each state college of agriculture should
organize a complete department of
college extension. Local, state, and even
National conferences on rural psogress, de
signed to unite the Interests-of education,
organization and religion should be held.
There Is need lor young people of quality,
energy capacity, aspiration and conviction,
who will live In the open country as per
manent residents on farms or as teachers,
or In other useful fields. The farming
country has been overlooked by persons who
are seeking great fields of usefulness.

RU LD POWER PLANT
Monarch Sawmill to Supply
SHIP ON EVERY RAILROAD
Belcher and Stine Close Deal in Chi
cago and Go Kurtlier Kast Pos
sible Source of Light for
City of Portland.
CHICAGO, Feb. 9. (Special.) F. S.
Belcher and W. F. Stine, of Portland,
who have been In Chicago perfecting the
financial affairs of the Monarch Lumber
Company, which corporation has under
construction a lumber mill on their tract
of timber land In Tillamook and Wash
ington Counties, tonight departed for
the East." Just with whom Messrs. Bel
cher and Stine are negotiating, how
ever, was not made known. The Chi
cago end of their transaction has prac
tically been completed and they have
gone to consult Easternt-rs who are in
terested In the project. Until this East
ern business has been cleared up they
did not care to mention the names of
any Eastern or Chicago men who are in
terested. Furnish fuel and Power.
Arrangements have been made where
by the new lumber company will furnish
electricity and such fuel as the mills can
spare to the new plant of Swift & Co.,
which is being erected on land adjoining
the Monarch Company's holdings. The
new company has made arrangements
through Swift & Co. which will give
It switching facilities with every rail
road entering Portland. It is proposed
to make the lumber mill thoroughly mod
ern and up to date in every respect and.
In addition to a shingle mill, a box fac
tory will bo established.
The tract of timber land which the
company owns comprises I3.4GO acres of
fine yellow fir and contains over a bil
lion feet of lumber. Lester V. David,
of Portland, will be president of the new
company, while Mr. Stine will be secre
tary and Mr. Belcher 'manager.
Some of Men Interested.
It was admitted by Mr. Stine this
evening that Chicago parties were inter
ested In the new company, also an Erie.
Pa., capitalist. A number of Portland
men .are interested among whom Is C.
W. Sherman, of Sherman & Harmon,
Northwestern agents of the Penn Mutual.
The foregoing dispatch gives all the
new information that developed yesterday
concerning the big timber deals In Wash
ington and Tillamook Counties. A fea
ture of the story from the East that
only Incidentally had been referred to
before is that the Swifts are interested
In the new lumber mill project along the
line of Installing an electrical plant in
connection with the packing-house, the
fuel to be furnished by the big sawmill.
During the controversy between Mayor
Lane and the Portland Railway, Light
& Power Company some weeks ago over
the city lighting, the Mayor intimated
that. If the company did not come more
closely to his ideas regarding cost of
furnishing light, there would be a possi
bility of an opposition plant being
started. In view of the information given
In the Chicago dispatch the inference is
natural that the Mayor had received
some intimation of the Swifts' intentions.
C. W. Sherman, mentioned In the dis
patch. Is in the East along with Messrs.
Stine and Belcher and Lester W. David.
His partner In business, E. L. Harmon,
said last night that he was not informed
concerning progress of the deal, as he
Is not personally Interested.

sition this afternoon to keep the House
In session until the McMastcr bill could
be reached on final passage, and suc
ceeded In voting down several motions
to adjourn, proposed by the liberals.
It was planned to hold a night session,
but at 4:30 the announcement that the
girls orchestra from the reform school
was ready to give a concert in the cor
ridor won over a sufficient number to
obtain an adjournment until 10 o'clock
tomorrow. There are still eight bills
ahead of the local option measure.
