Poultry ssan Is Flae Fellow Except

PORTLAND. Jan. 11,-MTo the Ed
itor.) In The Oregonlan Sunday there
appears a two-column synopsis of a re
cent bulletin from the Department of
Commerce and Industrial Service of the
University of Oregon protesting vigor
ously against the Democratic tariff re
duction on eggs, as a menace that por
tends the total destruction of the egg
and poultry business in Oregon. Fig
ures given, credited to a statistician
employed by the Portland (Oregon)
Journal, show that over 150.000.000 is
invested tn this Industry in Oregon.
The United States Statistics) Atlas, is
sued by the Government, shows that
the annual egg production of Oregon
amounts to (3.000,000, and the annual
poultry production is nearly as much.
One might question figures coming
from tha Oregon Journal, but the Gov
ernment reports are generally reliable.
H. B. Miller, for years in the
diplomatic service In China and Japan,
is given aa authority for the statement
that eggs axe sold in China at aa low as
I cents per doxen. Over 12.000,000 dozen
were exported from China in 1814. and
the supply is practically Inexhaustible
and capable of enormous increase. The
statement it further made that It costs
two and one-half times as much to ship
a case of eggs from Rosebnrg. Or., to
Portland, as It does to ship a case from
Shanghai to Portland. A lot of Inter
esting information in regard to the vol
ume of this Chinese industry, the in
sanitsry conditions under which it Is
prosecuted, methods of shipment. etc
is furnished from Chinese consular re
ports. The declaration it made that if
the present conditiona are continued
the competition will become to severe
as to atlfle the local industry.
The egg and poultry busineta of Ore
gon, that brings In a yearly revenue
of five or six millions, is a atanding
Joke among the Democratic politicians
of Oregon. Senator Chamberlain in
the last campaign made a punching
bag of three egg and poultry raisers in
bit audience at La Grande, and tn that
campaign tho funny man of the Port
land Journal couldn't be funny enough
over the thought that a common egg
and chicken raiser was important
enough to be made a political issue.
The department of commercial and
Industrial service of the university
ought to turn thU matter over to that
group of captains of industry and em
pire builders known as the Jackson
Club. They know what the country
needs. Tliey have contributed largely
to the prosperity we are now enjoying.
The club has devoted Itself in the past
almost wholly to hot air disquisitions
on Democratic abstractions that are of
no Interest to anybody, and their maud
lin and melancholy slobber over "the
lonely occupant of the White House"
who haa been doing all torts of things
that would have "crushed" Lincoln, has
"got onto" tho nerveg of the whole
It would be a relief to the community

Portland in the old "Villard Ruins" by

wood under it without making it fall.

He told me that he met hia strongest
opposition from the Board of Under

The process is so simple treat people
will not believe that it is accomplished
without some expensive chemical treat
ment, but the fact is that the mate
rial used Is one of the most common
articles and now considered of no value
whatever. The cost of a building fire
proofed by his process is not a great

CONVICTS MAKE GOOD SOLDIERS
Ex-Soldier Tells of Reclment Recruited
In Slam Districts.
PORTLAND. Jan. 12. (To the Edi
tor.) One C. F. Hoiran. in The Orego
nian, Jan. 11. uses eight inches of space
in a brave and militant effort to demol
ish with projectiles of would-be sar
casm the suggestion of Mr. Cotter thai,
convicts be trained for military ser
vice. To Mr. Hogan, whose letter mirrors
the thought of one unused to mature
deliberation, it may be suggested tlmt
sarcasm without reason and logic is
not very convincing. His labored en
deavor to convey the idea that convicts
do not have courage is not supported
by any better authority than that "Mili
tary experts say." which in its turn Is
no better than the backyard-fence gos
sip of "they say."
Not long ago the writer saw a news
item from an allied source to the ef
fect that German officers were required
to drive their soldiers into battle.
Doubtless this report was intended to
give the impression that the Germans
are cowards. Yet no man believes that.
True, there are cowards in all classes
of society, in all races, but there is
no evidence that the proportion is any
greater among convicts than in other
In-1898 I was a member of a regiment
recruited from the slum districts of an
Eastern city. On the rolls were many
ex-convicts. These were among the
first to enlist. They were more amen
able to discipline than the average;
and later, when we were in action at
Santiago, fought and bled just like the
rest of us.
If Mr. Hosan were more mature in
years and thought than his letter in
dicates, he would realize that there are
not many of us who have not at some
time or another committed acts as a
penaltv for which the law provides a
jail sentence. Because a few have been
unfortunate enough to be caught, there
are some people, among whom Mr. Ho
gan is evidently one. who believo that
the sin lies in being caught.
Lastly, Mr. Hocan dmibs a picture
showing the convicts with mephisto
phelian glee Koine into action behind
a Colonel, who mayhap had formerly
been tho judge that sentenced them,
for the purpose of shooting their com
manding officer in the back. If Mr.
Hogan had the least knowledge of
tilings military he would know that, as
a matter of fact, in real action the
Colonel follows rather than leads his
regiment, just as the position of a lieu
tenant is in the rear of the firing line
of his platoon. Military regulations re
