Tear Sir: Your proposal for a contett
of which r.iset the best wheat, yl r my
self, is tluwis .ami too inooh cmipiicated
with HiilleM nU I bat sis to etcr make a true
and satisfactory contest to both parties Per
mit me to rxplaiu wh it would betni In
the first place one of tht flouting mills might
have a large percentage over the Other by
having more new and Improyed machinery
aud lwter ftcilitlei throughout (of making
better flour, hencf jfiU will tee at once the
test f the wheat in that ease wuuld not be
equal. Further, it world be tery doubtfu1
if a Portland biker onttld be engaged to take
that trouble Without considerable pay. Now
thi contoat nf which h the b-st wheat can
be made very lirfd All expert a judges
and buyer of wheat most understand the
beet grades; therefore the flouring process
naturally belong to (he miller god the
bread making to the baker, hence whenever
expert buy whest of llrft quality, they con
aider it the bett wheat for all flouring pur
poeea. Now if yopr wheat wat considered
as good for flouring purpose a the Wil
lamette valley whett, Portland buyer would
pay as much for it, but wt frequently see it
quoted in the Portland psper at from even
to eight cent per cental lower than the
Willamette valley whMt, which prove it
once that it it not to cohtidered and that i
where the shoe pinchet the most No, if
yon are willing at the present time to make
a fair and sqnar exhibit against my woeat,
I am ready and willing at any hourr and I
will give you a much greater privilege- than
you allow .ne, U t yon tajr In yok? ceterauni
cation that the wheat most be gruwtl by me;
while I will aay to you, if yob belief that
your owu raising it nut good enough fof the
contest, I will give you the privilege of get
ting it from any part of the world, fof 1 am
well aware that you bave ioue in your
county lit for the contest, for I hare never
seen what I would tall a good lamp's o'
wheat raised east of the Cascade monhttlna.
I am aware thi it laying a good deal, but I
mean just what' I say, and if you believe you
have wheat on baud now (the amount for
the contest), or can get it, I have a peck
already deposited at the Gcakd office, in
Eugene City, which 1 intend thall Itaud
there as the bent wheat agaiint your and
against all nations; and I propose the con'
test shall be as follows; Whitest in color,
inside and out; thinost bran, largest grains,
more even in size and better filled it takes
these Nix qualities to make No 1 wheat
and limit be so considered by the examining
committee, and the sample having the great
est number nf tliesn six qualities (hall bo
i misidercd theliest wheat, and 1 am willing
on my part of choosing but one of the judge
and giving yon the privilege of choosing tho
other two, and yon may choose your father-iu-liiM',
Mr U'allot, if you wish, or any other
f inner you in ay deeubeit, provided they
are exmru m tliu U.Hineix. Ifyoa are tint
prciimvd to in ike th contest at the present
time, t will incut ).u at toe Ortgon State
Fair next Fall with one-loilf of a IiuhIicI, to
decided up ni by t'i-CoinmitleappoiiitOl
for that pnrp we, niid.r the same lulingl as
above iilciiiioneil, nud the committee must
put their kigmiture to whatever Aheia decis
ion may be, nt ejthcr lace of ccntett. If
you will make the contest at the present
time in Kitgone City, nt the Guard office
where my wheat is deposit jd, I will pay
the freight bill on yours so that it (hall not
coat you a cent; and if in your opinion your
when tot last year is not go enougn lor tue
present contest, I will give you the privi
lege of uotMiig jt anywhere in your owu
county, and if you wish more scope, 1 will
give you all the latitude eatt of the Cascade
you waut. but you mut tay where it wa
grown. Now, Mr Dilncaii, i mean business,
and thit is a fair a propitsition at I oau
inakei if it due not suit you we will say
nothing further in regard to ti.e matter.
