Price Paid Being Largest Since
Chicago Sale 12 Years Ago.
Development of the livestock Industry
of the Northwest and of Portland as
the distributing center of all the beef,
pork and mutton products of Oregon.
Washington and Idaho was given fur
ther impetus yesterday by the magnifi
cent exposition at the stockyards, which,
was attended by every one of the 238
guests from the Inland Empire who
arrived in the city on a special train
Monday morning, as well as by moro
than C?fl0 residents of Portland.
The conspicuous ribbon badges of the
Inland Empire delegation were every
where in evidence. The Central Idaho
and Eastern Washington visitors wero
4n important factor in the day's pro
gramme, and their stock exhibits
proved important features of the day's
prize distributions and sales.
It was a University of Idaho entry
a yearling Hereford that brought the
record price for a steer on foot ever
paid west of Chicago. When George
Warren, of Warrenton, Or., paid $1.20
a pound for the big prize-winner of
the show he paid more than ever has
been paid in the history of the world
with the single exception of the steer
"Advance." which brought $1.60 a pound
at Chicago 12 years ago.
Check Drawn for 91296.
The animal weighed 1080 pounds, and
Mr. Warren wrote his check for $1296.
Last night he was busy figuring what
the price of porterhouse steaks would
be If sold at the usual proportionate
advance over the price at which ho
bought. He expects to be amply repaid
for his investment by exhibiting his
purchase at future fairs and livestock
As this sale robbed the University of
Idaho of its prize offering, officials of
the college bought from Benson Bros.,
of Union, Or., a yearling white Short
horn at 17 cents a pound. W. L. Car
lyle, dean, of the Agricultural College,

Inland Empire Winners. '
With the best portion of tho prizes
distributed among the Inland Empire
stockmen, and the record sale of thn
whole western half of the United States
going to one of their schools, the peo
ple of that district had reaspn to bo
elated. They lost no opportunity In
-.-Dicing their delight to everyone on the
It was a busy day .for the Inland
Empire party. Quito a few of them
had been detained at the banquet the
night before until after midnight, and
some of these were a little tardy in
reaching the special cars .provided for
transporting them to the show grounds.
Some missed the cars and came trail.
Ing to the show later in the morning.
Upon arrival at the exposition tho
visitors were given an Informal recep
tion by members of the Livestock Ex
change and the Pacific Northwest Live
stock Association, under whose aus
pices the show is being given. Speeches
were dispensed with, as everyone was
too eager to get a look at the fine sheep,
cattle and swine.
The visitors Just had time to chase
through the stock pens and Inspect the
prize winners casually before the auc
tion sale started. Throughout the re
mainder of the morning interest cen-.

Visitors by Hundreds Seen.
Lunch was served on the grounds and
again opportunity was given for view
ing the exhibits before tho afternoon
sales opened. The early afternoon
brought a constant stream of visitors
fre.m Portland and other nearby towns.
In view of the small attendance last
year, officials of the association today
felt Jubilant over the presence of so
many Portland people, nearly half of
whom were women. Although large
numbers traveled In automobiles, other
thousands braved the intermittent and '
somewhat uncertain service by trolley.
Officials of the Portland Railway, Light
& Power Company are prohibited by
law from operating their cars beyond
Kenton, from which point the stock
yards Interests control the lino and
operate It. Changing crews causes de

today will be the largest of the week,
