TI1K STATE FAIR.
THIRD LETTER TO TUB ENTERPRISE.
Salkm, October 28th, 1867.
In my last I purposely left out the
class in which horses and donkies are
hewn. I would remark, to com
mnce with, that of the former there
was a good exhibit, but I am well
satisfied that there are more of the
latter in the State than were submit-
ted for examination; in fact, I did
not hear much braying. If you will
notice the premium awards of last
Qyear and compare it with this, you
will see many new names amongst
the contestants. The horses were
tried in various ways, and in some of
the trials it was hard to decide which
was entitled to the first prize. Look
ing attlie draft horses pulling, I could
not but wonder at the excitement
manifested by the eager crowd of
lookers on. It was difficult to keep
pace sufficient around the animals
O under trial to allow of a fair, unim-?
peded test. The horse seems to pos
sess the power of attracting a crowd,
especially an unreflecting crowd,
above any other animal: but the men
who gave their attention to horse
flesh at this State Fair were not of
thgrunrefiecting kind at least not
many of them. I was glad to notice
that some ofthe " baser sort" who
have heretofore frequented the Fairs
were not there this year. The
places were better filled by better
men. There were some who entered
their horses in the trials of speed who
did not care half so much for the
purse to be won as they did for the
honor of owning the horse that could
win it. Some of the trials were
closely contested so closely, indeed,
aa to prove the wisdom of the officers
of the Society in modifying the rule
which had been adopted, that all
trials should be " alone and against
time." Here allow me to remark
that your neighbor, Dr. Benson, of
the P. C. Advocate, does the officers
of the Society great injustice concern
ing this matter, by the way he anim
adverts on their action. In the
Advocate of the 19th ult., he says:
' The officers, on the first day of the fair,
set aside their former action in regard to
horse-racing. They had announced to the
public that no horse would be permitted
to run except against time. This arrange
ment met with very general favor, and in
ppired hope in many who had purposed
never again to visit the fair. But with the
change of programme, they felt that they
had been deceived, and that it had been
ione with design. The pledge to the pub
liPhad been violated. Racing was still to
be the work of the society. Premiums
were still to be awarded for success in
what a large portion of the most reli
able citizen of the State consider not only
useless, but immoral. In the future it will
be difficult for the society to command
Thero is ic this an implied charge
of bad faith and of immorality,which
the officers of the society are not so
lost to self " respect" as not to feel.
Happening to have had a " nearer
Oriew'' of the manner in which the
rule first adopted was modified, I can
say that it was adopted upon the sup
position that it would afford a fairer
and more certain means of testing the
horses. It was changed after it be
came manifest that it was not calcu
lated to aid the judges in arriving at
Correct conclusions. Instead of the
rule meeting with " general favor,"
thoae who were the most interested
who had horses which they desired
to enter for trial of speed themselves
Attended the meeting of the Board
of Managers of the Society, and re
spectfully desired an opportunity of
stating why, in their judgment, the
rule of " running alone and against
lime1' was not calculated to answer
the objects of its adoption, which
was as I have said, to get a thorough
q .test c-f the best horse, without a pos
sibility of fraud or jockeying. The
first argument against the rule was
thatrio horse would run as well alone
as with a competitor; that it would
Omake a difference between different
horses of from four to eight seconds.
2d. In a close race it was impossible
to decide, because the speed of a horse
sunning at the rate of a mile in 1
imtiule and 50 seconds would carry
him over 40 feet in 1 second ; and as
the bestr stop watches will only stop
at the quarter of a seconj,
and that time covers a space of
nore than 10 feet in the horse's mo
tion. It could never be decided which
Wse won the prize if two or more of
the horses ran within ten fee, of each
O other. Now, one at least, of the
trials was so closely contested that
the judges could not decide by the eye
foremen. There was not
lunH thelengthof a hea3, much less
10 feet, difference between them. At
th stage ofthergllment one of the
committee of jadge, J
reason why the rule would be likely
to fail in securing the end aimed at.
He said he had had much experience
in timing horses, in connection with
other men, and he had found it very
difficult for three different men to stop
their watches at the same quarter sec
ond of time. Thus three honest men
might differ three fourths of a second,
and there would be an opening for any
partial judge to dispute the time.
Moreover, he though, the rule was
no bar to dishonest running, as no
man who kept his horse for running
purposes would show bis true time for
any of the premiums offered by the
society. After listening to arguments
of this kind, the Board of Managers
modified the rule so as to allow those
who desired to let their animals run
with others to do so, and those who
preferred to run against time alone
to do so. There was but one man
who availed himself of the latter mode.
and he only because his horse ran out
of the track while running with others.
There was one other party for
whom the rule seemed to be suitable,
if the Board of Managers had not in
sisted on a trial. One gentleman in
formed the society last winter that he
had a horse which weighed 14 10 lbs.,
and could trot his mile in 2:42 if he
was allowed to trot by certificate.
The society thought that the test by
certificate would hardly be satisfac
tory to the lovers of good horses who
attended the fair, and so, generously
made the proposition giving more
time and less weight than was claimed
in the case mentioned, but nothing
came of it. The owner of the big
trotting horse did not enrich the so
ciety with his presence at the fair,
and no visitor had the pleasure of
seeing his animal. So you see it is
hard to please every one.
I think the crowd of roughs about
the race track was less than on for
I heard no complaints in regard to
the decisions of judges.
Inside of the Pavilion the show
was more varied in character than on
former occasions, and there was less
of that which had been on exhibition
before. Some of the ornamental
work was very beautiful. Amongst
the useful I noticed some rich speci
mens of iron ore. Messrs. Watkins
& Dearborn, of Salem, had a good
exhibit of leather and saddlery, and
some party had placed a couple of
fleeces of wool there, seemingly with
the intent of showing how it should
be done up and tied a good idea,
for if half the blame for the bad con
dition in which wool has gone to
maiket the past season, properly be
longs to farmers, the sooner many of
them learn a better way, the better
it will be for all.
Settling the Land. The hierar
chy of Salt Lake ordered a large
number of young and vigorous Elders
to be transplanted to Southern Utah,
to settle upon and secure the numer
ous fertile valleys lying in that sec
tion of the Territory, and which are
capable of producing cotton, grape?,
hemp.tobacco and other products re
quiring a rich soil and pleasant cli
mate. The Telegraph, giving the
names of the appointees of the mis
sion, as it is called, says: The young
men are expected to take to them
selves wives before they go, and con
tinue their domestic bliss on the vir
gin soil of the inviting portions of our
Dixie. As we understand it, there
are many portions of the south that
can be profitably cultivated, and the
Elders now called are expected to
go forth in faith to redeem tiie waste
places and build ap new settlements
and extend others, probably.
Trouble in Alaska A dispatch
from Sitka says: Capt. Peteschauroff,
trie Russian Commissioner, and Capt.
Kuskol, Commissioner of Russian
American Fur Company, have pro
tested against the permanent occupa
tion of the Company's buildings by
the U. S. troops or quartermaster's
department. The matter will be
brought before Secretary Seward and
the Ilussian Minister at Washington
at an early day. Seven duels have
taken place, on paper, since our oc
cupation of the city. Fortunately
all were settled without bloodshed.
The parties to these affairs are of

meeting. According to the States
man Judge Wyche, Messrs. LaRgford,
Lasater, Caton, Johnson, and every
body else of course, is in favor of
th movement. If Northern Idaho is
to be annexed to Washington Terri
tory as a permanent thing, we arc in
favor of it. If it is to be done with
view to another territorial division,
and to create places for politicians

Tlie Vanillin It MilroiMl.
Desiring to warn the farmers of
the valley, of the impracticably of
an enterprise in wh'ch they appear to
be embarking, I propose to review
briefly some articles which have been
published recently in The Lafayette
Courier. In that Journal it is as
serted that the farmers on the West
side of the river are losing annually,
on cost of transportation alone,
enough to pay for the construction of
fifty miles of railroad. I will apply
the test of figures to this statement.
In collecting from the federal census
reports of 18G0, I find that the en
tire value of all agricultural products
worthy of notice (viz: wheat, oats,
wool, orchard products, garden pro
ducts, butter, cheese, and slaughtered
animal?,) in the State of Oregon fcr
that year was in round numbers
$2,800,000. In making the estimate,
where the number of pounds or
bushels were given in the census ta
bles, I attached a high valuation con
sidering the articles in the Portland
market. The aggregate value of ag
ricultural production in the Wil
lamette valley is little if any greater
now than then. I will presume that
it is the same. That portion of the
valley lying West of the river cer
tainly did not yield more than one
third the entire product of the State.
This third amounts to ouly $933,000.
The construction of fifty miles of rail
road here, will cost at the lowest es
timate $1,750,000. Therefore, the
entire annual product of the region
under consideration, without even
subtracting any for the necessary
consumption of the producers, would
but little more than half pay for the
construction of fifty miles of railroad.
The absurdity of the statement in the
Courier is consequently so palpable
as not to require any further com
ment. It is also stated as earnest evidence
of the speedy construction of the
Yamhill road, that the farmers of
Washington, Yamhill, and Polk, have
subscribed for stock to the amount of
$280,000. This is a very large sum
for the farmers of those counties to
advance in behalf of any enterprise
outside of their immediate farming
operations; but when applied to the
construction of the proposed railroad,
in comparison with the amount which
would be required to complete the
work, it becomes insignificant. It
would not more than build the first
five miles running from the Wil
We are also informed from the
same source that the cross-ties for
the first section of twenty miles are
already provided for, and a consider
able amount of grading paid for. It
is certainly at variance with the usti"
al plan of railroad builders to provide
cross-ties before commencing the
grade; and still more remarkably so,
to pay for the grading before it is
begun. But taking all together I
concluded that the farmers of the
afore mentioned counties are being
persuaded that they are really able to
build eighty miles of railroad, for a
less amount would not materially
benefit those in the upper most one
of the three.
I will again revert to figures for
The federal census reports show
the aggregate value of farms, farm
ing implements, and live stock in the
whole State in the year 18G() to be
821,987:330. It will be a very lib
eral estimate to allow that ones
fourth of this value belonged to
Washington, Yamhill, and Polk
then, and it is not materially en
hanced in those counties since. Their
agricultural wealth probably does
not now exceed $5,500,000. The
average cost of rail roads in Cali
fornia has exceeded $50,000 per
mile. In Illinois, it has been a frac
tion over $33,000. Assuming that
it can be done as cheaply here eighty
miles of railroad would cost $2,SS0,
000. Have the farmers of these
counties in this State that large sum
of money to spare? Not a single dol
lar have they. Some of them of
course, have a few hundred of sur
plus funds, but that is counter
balanced by the indebtedness of
others. If these farmers act under
standingly instead of wasting their
means in futile attempts at construc
tion of a road, they will seek to en
list Eastern capitalists in the work.
They will think the interest is a burs
den sufficiently onerous when they
realize the fact that if it were equally
distributed amongst them, it would
require a tax of six dollars on every
hundred of their farming capital, of
five and a half millions, to pay it or
