What the lnlon Meat Company and other packing plants on the Tenlnsula are doing Is cited as an example of the further development possible, a de velopment that Is bound to come as faxt as the livestock In.lustry of the Northwest builds Itself up. Portias err Reealsed. Amour the livestock men who at tended the show yesterday Portland Is recognlxed as the only livestock market on the Pacific Coast. It Is the only competitive market west of Den ver. This fact makes It advantageous for both buyers and sellers. The grow er Is able to gel a better price and the packer, although lie has to pay more, buys at an advantage, owing to his probability of gettlnff superior stock and having It on the ground In the exact nuantltlca that he desires each day. He has no Idle money tied up and he knows Just what he la get ting. He can carry on bis buying busi ness, too. at a greatly reduced expense In comparison with those packers who buy dlro.-t. as lie does nut have to main tain a staff of traveling buyers on the road. In this particular the Portland Union Sinckyards Company Is aiding mater ially In developing the local Industry as It offers an opportunity to every purchaser to secure stock at the pre vailing market prices. The Portland market Is higher always than those of the Missouri Klver. thus making it attractive to growers, even In that part of the country. raatatloas Ylalt Shaw. Tt.e present sl;ow Is aiding In a large measure to educate Portland people with the Importance of the Industry. Many prominent Portland men visited the show either Individually or as mem bers of the organised parties, which Included the Rotary Club, the Pro gressive Business Men's Club, the Horse-Owners' Association, the Credit Men and others. The Ad Club will at tend this afternoon. The final decision of the- management to permit the agricultural colleges of the three Northwestern states, Oregon. Washington and Idaho, to enter In the competition seems to have met with the finrl approval of all Interested parties. "Some criticism was made by the ex hibitors." said l. O. Uvely. "to the effect that colleges were permitted to enter and compete for the prises. At the iir.t show the colleges were not permitted to enter and It was the opinion of the management that they would not be allowed to enter the sec ond show. In fact, the preliminary classification was so arranged, but after due consideration the classification was amended and the colleges permitted to enter. This same question has been up at all of the shows of a similar character In the I'nltcd States and the discussion lakes place each year. Colleges Pretsake Dlaewaaloa. The colleges were a bone of con tention at the international at Chi cago and to paraphrase the Breeders' fiaxctte In this particular. I may say. that If the Pacific Northwest Livestock Show Is a mere agency for distributing money among Individuals who have not thn ability to breed the best, nor the means to buy the best, nor the skill to fee. I the best. It would be well to bar such enterprising colleges as Idaho, which has set the highest MHinUrd st the Pacific Northwest Live stock I'.xhlbltlon If this sihow alms to lesrh lessons that flow from th exhibition of Lbe highest obtainable ex- , cellence. then serlous-mlnded men ought not to waste time In discussion of the subject. "A closed competition means an In ferior standard. That Is Its object. It Is closed against the best In order that the mediocre may win. The Pa cific Northwest Livestock Show -was not established to set a false stan dard. It would be recreant to Us ob ligation to the animal breeders of the world If it closed Its competition to the best. "It would be Just as reasonable to bar the Charles Ladd herd from St. Louis Fair because he had tho ability and the means to produce so excellent a display of Shorthorns, as It would be to shut out the colleges from these exhibition." MAIN-STREET SITE URGED Oregon Cltr Live Wire Discuss Lo cation for Library. OREGON CITV, Or.. March 19. (Spe cial.) A alto for the proposed Carnegie library was discussed at the weekly luncheon of the Live Wires Tuesday, and the majority of the members fa vored locating the building on Main street. One or two members who live on the bill argued in favor of having the structure erected on Peventh-streot Park or McLourghlln Park. A plan to have a booster day this Spring was approved. It was d"clded. however, to have industrial exhibitions instead of contracting with an amuse ment company, as was dono last year for the shows.

A recent canvass of Estacada j and vicinity reveals the fact that Esta- I carta is rapidly becoming on of the great poultry centers of the state, as on March 13. there were within a radius of live miles of Etacada. 98 Tncubators In operation, with a total capacity of in, 000 egg. Estimating on the basis of a 75 per cent hatch, this would mean a hatch af approximately 10.000 chick ens every 21 days, or 50.000 chickens for the four hatching months and allowing 20 per cent mortality, would mean 40. 000 chicks for this year. About 15,000 chickens also will be hatched without the use of the Incubator, making a total of approximately 50.000 chickens for the year, .which will be a iOO per cert increase over the production of 1911.

It has been learned positively that the derelict which was sighted ' floating bottom side up off this coast yesterday was not the gasoline schoon er Randolph, of this port, as was feared last night. The derelict was much larger, being 140 feet long, ac cording to the last report. Today nothing is seen of the wrecked vessel and the Identity of the boat has not been established. It was learned to day that the Randolph left this morn ing for Eureka, having been in port at Eureka, south of Cresent City. Waldo. Hall Girls to Entertain. OREGON AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE, Corvailis.

Yet the xnother-to-be is often fearful of nature's ordeal and shrinks from the suffering incident to its con summation. But for nature's ills and discomforts nature provides remedies, and in Mother's Friend is to be found a medicine of great value to every expectant mother. It is an emulsion for external ap plication, composed of ingredients which act with beneficial and soothing effect on those portions of the system involved. It is in tended to prepare the system for the crisis, and thus relieve, in great part, the suffering' through which the mother usually passes. !The regular use of Mother's Friend will repay any mother in the comfort it affords before, and the helpful restoration to health and strength it brings about after taby comes.

IRXDF1IU) MCUUTOJt CO.. Atlanta, Ctv j Should be cultivated locally, as well as in a broader field. Our sister state to the east has just shown a friendly and neighborly interest toward Oregon by her "Booster Special." There is something about a hearty hand-clasp from a social or business friend that strengthens our confidence in mankind. Idaho, Washington and Oregon should be more than neighbors; they should be sisters and pull together for a GREATER NORTHWEST. Our cities should also pull together to obtain best results. It's high time for Portlanders and Astorians to stop their selfish squabbles and to recognize that EACH is an ADVANTAGE to the OTHER. We need to use the mouth of the Columbia River to keep pace with Washington on a BUSINESS BASIS. We can't afford to sleep on their $5,000,000 terminal proposition. The Pan ama Canal great ships will all go there, "IF WE DON'T WATCH OUT." "THERE'S A REASON" So let's get busy at the GATEWAY. And, Mr. Neighbor, the logical thing for you to do and do it quick is to plant a few dollars in inside lots at WARRENT0N, EG0N before the multitude gets wise.
