Promising? Crop Conditions.
Salem streets were filled today with the
usual Saturday crowd of farmers. Nearly
all of whom inquiry was made had good
reports to make regarding the outlook
for crops. The general opinion among
fruitmen Is that there -Rill be a good half
crop of Italian prunes of first-class qual
lty. Of other varieties there will he a full
crop. Cherries and strawberries are both
George "W. Weeks, the Howell Prairie
dairyman, says that an unusual amount
of corn has been planted this season by
farmers of his neighborhood, and that
the weather has been very favorable fur
an excellent crop. The rains continued
-for a. fair length of time, and the weather
has since been codl hut bright A spell
of hot weather would have been injurious
to the corn. Mr. "Weeks sas that most
of the farmers will use their corn for en
silage or Summer soiling.
A few farmers say that In the last few
days they have heard complaints of green
aphis on growing wheat. It has been re
ported that Fall wheat Is turning yellow
without any apparent cause. None of the
farmers Interviewed today have examined
their wheat closely, but some have been
reliably Informed that the stalks of wheat
are thickly covered with the small, green
aphis that has damaged the wheat In pre
All reports concerning the hop crop are
very encouraging. "While the acreage has
been reduced considerably, both by plow
ing up and by missing hlllrt In some lo
calities, the present indication Is that the
hop vines will make a thrifty growth and
mature a crop of unusually good quality.

Ambassador, Andrew D. White, referring'
to the news cabled here connecting nis
name with the American Vice-Presidency,
informed the representative of the Asso
ciated Press that it Is one of those things,
that cannot be, adding that he attached
no Importance to the matter, which was
"mere campaign talk."
Obstructionism Is something new In Ger
man parliamentary life, hence the great
excitement, coupled with amazement, of
both the press and the Reichstag major
ity itself on the subject of obstruction as
practiced now In tho Reichstag to defeat,
if possible, or, Jn any case, retard the
passage of the Lex Helnze. Both the
majority and minority are determined to
see the matter out If It takes all Summer.
The temper In ttye house yesterday and
today was rather hot. For the purposo
of exerting moral pressure upon the
Reichstag, the so-called Goetherbund
(that Is to say, the federation of opponents
of the bill throughout Germany) will hold
an Immense Indignation meeting here ear
ly next week. The argument Is made now
that If the Reichstag passes the bill, the
measure will. In any case, be unconstitu
tional, because part of the deliberations
within the Reichstag were conducted se
cretly. The Prussian Diet Is about ready to pass
the so-called department store bill, tho
Conservative and Centrist majority having
rendered the provisions of the original
government measure more severe, increas

The Wiesbaden festal week, which has
become an institution of late years, with
the Emperor present this time, took the
shape of a British and American ovation
to His Majesty. This was especially no
ticeable at yesterday's flower parade,
when a large number of stylish English
ladles and some American ladles filed
past the Emperor on horseback or In car
riages. While the weather in Berlin has
been bad, In Wiesbaden since the Emper
or's arrival there It has been splendid.
The Czar's birthday (May 18) was cele
brated today, both here and at Wiesbaden.
At the latter place there was a fine pa
rade, a gala dinner and afterward a per
formance of "Czar und Zimmerman" at
the theater, as a delicate compliment. The
Minister of Foreign Affaire, Count Von
Bulow, and the Russian Ambassador,
Count Von Osteck-Sacken, with the mem
bers of the embassy, spent the day with
tho Emperor, at His Majesty's special In
vitation. This was meant to demonstrate
that the relations between the Czar and
Emperor William were of the best and
most intimate description. In Berlin this
forenoon divine services were conducted
in the Russian chapel In honor of the
Czar, and the Emperor Alexander Guard
Regiment gave a banquet today for the
same purpose, the Czar being honorary
Colonel of this regiment.
Emperor William In the meantime has
changed his plans. He will not return to
Berlin before May 27. He will stay at
Wiesbaden for the present, and goes May
25 to visit his mother. Thus the German
American veterans will not have a chance
of being received In audience by His Maj
esty. Friendly dispatches have been ex

Features Criticised by a Batter and
Cheese Malccr of Experience.
The first thing to do to make dairying
a success in Oregon Is to Investigate the
methods followed In other states older
In the business, and profit by their experi
ence. Instead of practicing the defective
methods discarded by them years, ago.
The people of Oregon are not different
from those of other states. Therefore, they
first adopt many ways that are wrong in
operating factories and In handling their
butter and cheese. They will not be suc
cessful till they make a change. The
farmer Is not satisfied and the factorymen
are not satisfied, and will not be till
they adopt a dlflerent basis. The old
adage is "In union there Is strength,"
therefore, to make dairying successful
there must be a union of effort by far
mers and factorymen. This can be
brought about by a thorough understand
ing of the right principles and methods,
and then a co-operative effort of both Is
sure to win.
First, the factoryman must have a
thorough knowledge of how to manufac
ture a first class article. He must be a
man of extraordinary ability to govern
and teach. In order to gain the confidence
of the farmer, and get him to adopt the
best methods for the care of the cow,
and the care of the milk. If the factory
man has not got this knowledge he can
not Impart it to his farmer patrons; then
there Is a break at the start. Next is the
system that must be adopted that has
superseded all others In the older milk
districts. The only way Is to show the
producer of the milk that he has received
the full market value of the product of
his milk, less a reasonable compensa
tion for manufacture and sale.
The plan of the factoryman buying the
milk has never proven successful for
different reasons. First, there Is a ten
dency to banter and beat down the price,
and a chance for an error in judg
ment by either the buyer or seHer. Next,
is the endless complaint of a dishonest
test. Again there Is no mutuality of In
terest In regard to quality on the part
of the producers who have no Interest
In the success of the factory. They sim
ply look upon It as a robbing Institution,
and If they can get the start of It they
are 3ure to do so. This Is all done away
with In a co-operative factory. Though
the factoryman may own the plant and
recelye a given price for his labor and
furnishing and the sale of the product,
the-' factoryman and farmers are both
interested In the success of the factory,
when comparing dividends with the
Next Is the necessity of the law makers
of Oregon understanding the dairy ques
tion sufficiently so as not to make laws
that work an injury to it. The term
"reworked butter" in a law to prevent
the manufacturing of or importing of
process butter into the state. Is In many
ways misunderstood, and In a measure
works an Injury to the producer Instead
of doing him the kindness It was Intend
ed to do. First, there Is butter placed
on the market that Is streaked and mot
tled, caused by not being worked enough,
and to rework It would Improve It and
make It a better and more desirable ar
ticle. Then again, when down In price

ter or cheese In cold storage till a scar
city of the article raises the price, the
same as he does his hay, grain or any
other product of the farm. To do this
successfully it should be stored away in
bulk. In order to keep the quality good,
then when the time arrives to place it on
the market according to the custom of
the trade here. It Is necessary to mold
It into squares or prints. It might then
be termed "reworked butter," and the
maker would be liable to a fine.
Those arguing that such butter should
he classed or labeled in a form, to cast
a reflection on' It as process butter Is
wrong. It could have been molded Into
prints In the beginning, and then it could
not be termed "reworked," and as there
Is no law prohibiting any one from plac
ing poor butter on the market. It is read
ily seen that 'the law encourages the
production of poor butter. If the party
that formulated section 1 of the pure
food laws would make a trip down Front
street and examine some of the butter
handled by the large butter houses, ship
ped to them from the creameries and
marked "creamery butter," and could
then see a good grade made right, packed
Tight In tubs, sealed up and stored six
months In a flrst class refrigerator, he
would then conclude that the tub butter
would scorn the Idea of being stamped
"creamery butter," If it Tiad to be judged
by the prints placed on the market called
"creamery butter." There Is no law pro
hibiting the manufacture of that stale,
decomposed stuff, and Us sale to Inno
cent purchasers for a healthy article of
food, when a man skilled In fils profession
and capable of making a, good article,
stores It six months and takes It out a
better article than his competitors but
ter ever was, the law says It must be
stamped "tub butter," as though the
term would degrade the standard or
lower Its selling quality. It this Is a wise
and just law, I pity the Oregon producer
In his efforts at progression.
I am no friend to the process butter,
and have been a liberal supporter In do
nating funds and have exerted what In
fluence I have had to do away with Imi
tation and fraudulent dairy goods. I am
Interested In Oregon's welfare, and want
to see her forge ahead In the dairy line.
I therefore hope that this matter can
be placed before the people in a shape so
that better laws will take the place of
those now In force, and open a way for
progression. The state should have a
competent Instructor to visit the fac
tories and Instruct the makers In the art
of butter and cheese making, and per
suade the dealers to change off from the
print system to a solid packed butter In
tubs. The flrst system Is to expensive,
market all the time. The wholesale price
cf butter at Portland for several weeks
last Summer was below the Eastern!
market prices from 2 to 3 cents a pound.
It Is safe to say that had this surplus
butter been made rlirht and nnrskpd In I
tubs properly at the time it was made, J
pnd either the customs of trade been to
use packed butter, or the law changed
so It could have been molded Into prints
to suit the trade at the time it was placed
on the open market in the Fall and "Win
ter, It would have brought the farmer
from 2 to 3 cents a pound more. There
Is plenty of ready buyers for all the sur
plus butter this country has, if thcee dif
ficulties were removed.
The trouble with the print buter Is that
the factory holds It a few days and the
commission house and the grocer a few
days, and by the time It reaches the con
sumer It Is strong and off flavor. "Were
It packed In a tub It would not be ex
posed, and would keep till consumed, and
give everyone handling It better satis
faction. There Is talk of overproduc
tion in dairy goods. Such a thing might
be junless we change and Improve and
adopt more modern methods of handling
our goods. The trade will send orders to
the districts that put up their goods In
the best shape. If Oregon will take warn
ing and keep abreast of the times, there
Is no danger of overproduction.
Criticism is what sets people to thinking,
and keeps them advancing. 1 -wish to

criticise a couple of sections In the pure
food laws. It Is quite evident that those
drafting and passing upon those laws did
not give them much thought, or were
not very familiar with the composition
of milk and its products. In section 7
It speaks of milk containing more than
S8 per cent water, and In section S of milk
containing less than 3 per cent butter
fat. Now those two sections do not agree
with each other. The analyses show
milk with 3 per cent butter fat contains
8 1-10 per cent solids, other than fat. Ad
ding the 3 per cent fat makes 11 1-10 total
solids. Such milk would contain 88 9-10
per cent of water; so according to the
laws it would be impossible to produce
milk that would compare with the, analy
ses set forth as pure milk. Then 'again.
In section. 9, it speaks of milk containing
less than 8 per cent solids other than but
ter fat, and less than 103S specific gravity
after the cream has been removed. Now
according to Dr. Babcock, "Viech Fred
erlksen and others, the specific gravity
of pure milk runs from 1033 to 1036 at 60
degrees temperature, which Is less than
the requirements of your law. The spe
cific gravity of whole milk is 1029 to 1032
at 60 degrees temperature.
In section 10 it also states that cheese
containing less than 40 per cent of but
ter fat as compared with total solids Is
unlawful. Now this Is another conun
drum. Dr. S. IT. Babcock says milk Is an
emulsion of butter fat In a watery so
lution of albuminous matter (cream or
cheese water and albumen), milk, sugar
and mineral matter; water 874 pounds,
butter fat (making about four pounds of
butter) 3 pounds, case cheese matter Z&
pounds, albumen t pound, milk, sugar
and mineral matter 5 pounds, total 100
pounds. Now, with a loss of 3 per cent
sugar of milk in this way, I would like
to know how cheese can be made with
the common method, to contain 40 per
cent butter fat? It cannot be done, even
with 4 per cent milk, and a majority of
the beat paying herds of cows fall short
of giving 4 per cent milk, especially dur
ing the flush of the milk season. If I
am not mistaken, the per cent of fat re
quired in cheese In the leading cheese
states Is 33 per cent
It Is readily seen that the framer of
