GRESHAM, Or.. Sept 17. (Special.)
In his adoress this afternoon at the
Multnomah County Fair on "The Next
Eteps in Agricultural Development"
President W. T. Kerr, of the Oregon
Agricultural College, emphasized co
operation and organization on the part
of the farmers of Oregon to obtain bet
ter results, better crops and better
prices for their produce. He congratu
lated the Multnomah County Fair As

made and' said that fairs are important
factors for material and social ad
"It is through co-operation and
organization." said President Kerr,
"that the high cost of living may be
reduced through more efficient farm
methods, more production, better con
servation of the soils, better crops and
better markets. The producer has not
been getting enough and the consumer
has been paying too much.
Portland Milk Prices Cited.
"I am told that the consumer of milk
In Portland pays three times as much
as the man who furnishes the milk.
"A box of apples costing $1.60 in Port
land was sold in Philadelphia for $8.50,
bo that the consumer often pays 300
and 500 per cent more than the pro
ducer receives, which can be remedied
through co-operation, organization and
business methods. It is through the
aggregation of capital that great enter
prises are carried out, and so the farmer
must organize. He must study the
soils and stop crop waste. He must
adopt economical methods in farming,
the same as the manufacturer. The by
products that are wasted must be used.
This can be done through creameries,
canneries, through business methods
and scientific agricultural and horticul

Kelly, of Portland, who arrived home
Captain Carson, of the Maitai, was
in a peculiar dilemma. He had on
board the German Consul from Tahiti,
a French port. According to the In
ternational code of warfare the Brit
ish captain was required to deliver the
Consul and his family at a neutral
port in safety. He put in at San
Diego, therefore, instead of going di
rect to San Francisco.
Miss Kelly says that the Maitai was
in' almost constant danger of approach
by German vessels, several of which
were known to be in the South seas
and off the North American coast.
Among the passengers were several
Englishmen from Australia, much dis
gusted because they had to change
ships at Wellington from the big Will
ochra to the small Maitai. They refused
to listen to the steamship company's
explanation that the Willochra was a
chartered boat, whose owners refused
to let her make the run, and were a
continual source of annoyance through
out the voyage.
At San Diego the ringleader (a Cap
tain in the British army), told the pas
sengers that Captain Carson was lost
and came in to find out where he was,
beside calling him numerous uncompli
mentary names, so Captain Carson sent
for the man to come up on the bridge,
told him in the presence of his officers
exactly what he thought of him in very
seamanlike language, and that If he
heard one more whimper from him the
rest of the voyage he would put him

result of Superintendent Alderman's

Alderman. "I have decided to recom

"I want it understood that I have no
personal objection to Miss Joyce. I
never saw her until yesterday. But I
object to placing women at the head

in the case of Miss DeNeff. but I want
to announce right here that I object

a large dent and she can never go
straight home from anywhere because
she gets lost. So if by chance you meet
a starry-eyed little girl with an anx

chievous face, who asks "Please, where

adventure you're about to undergo, or
that it's a touch for a contribution or a

stated, to the dividends of the Inter
