MISTAKES AND UNTRUTHS
The propaganda spilled for a long time, and now renewed,
against the Oregon Growers Cooperative association, has been
i and is now based largely on mistakes and truths.
i . The Oregon Growers Cooperative association was organ-.
ized on correct lines!" - It performed useful and valuable
I service jf ' - - ' x
I And it lacked for complete success only three things.
First, it lacked "sufficient membership; near enough to 100
per cent .membership of the men engaged in the lines it under
took to serve. Second,? it lacked the loyal support of a suffi
ciently large number of the numbers it had. Third, it lacked
capital. But the last lack would have been supplied if the
two first had not been wanting.
It lacked sufficiency near 100 per cent membership
through the activities of outsiders who were working against
it largely for 4elfish ends, claiming that they did not believe
in the cooperative principle, etc., etc,
; tt lacked sufficiently near 100 per cent of loyal support
of its memlbefs because of petty jealousies and the general
distrust through which every organization of the kind must
live, or fail to live. long. Every one of the many successful
cooperatives of California have lived through that period.
Prof. C. :L Lewis, who was influential in organizing the
Oreffon Growers CooDerative association, was a bier man. It
is not true that he used the Oregon Agricultural college to
help in the! organization of the association. He stepped out
i ion his own, which he had a right to do.
t But short sighted; members thought he was receiving too
' high a salary. It wasj $6000 a year part of .the time, if not all
the time. He went to take a $12,000 a year salary, and a
. percentagefi of the 'business besides, at Chicago, with the
American jFruit Grower Magazine, and died in that service.
1 Such positions as he! held here pay in California $25,000 a
.year and upward. P?of. Lewis was a $25,000 man, and more,
i in usefulness jto the service he would have performed here, if
he had not lacked the support his efforts deserved
And thie sa'me thing happened to others. Bob Paulus was
a$25,000 iman, though he was paid only a small portion of
that sum by the Oregon Growers Cooperative association, and
, some of this membersjcould not see how he could earn $4000 or
$5000 or $6000 a year for them, handling a business running
to around $3,000,000 a year in volume. His work since has
proved that he is more than a $25,000 man, and he has served
largely the same men, but in his own business, buying from
them onlyfbecause he was able to pay better prices than Mthe
other fellow." i j
And so gn downt the list. .
s - The prune industry needs another Oregon Growers Coop
erative association, but one with a near 100 per cent member-
ship of the growers, and a membership that will-not be
afraid to pay able men adequate salaries, and a membership
of people who will stand by them. " : N .-
If all the angles of the prune industry can be represented,
and in a harmonious organization, well and good. : But this
' is a matter needingjcooperation from the ground up; from
the tree roots up, asthe successful cooperatives in California
have found out. Th citrus fruit cooperative, the largest and
.'most successful in tne world, does everything, from furnish-j
ing fertilizer and smudge pots to making boxes and manufac
turning many products and distributing dispensers by hun-
dreds of thousands to the soft drink stands of the country.
Its advertising funds now run into millions of dollars a year.
It the prune industry of Oregon and western Washington
is to be stabilized thoroughly, a leaf will have to be taken
from the book of the citrus fruit cooperative of California
- And every angle of it will have to be considered and taken
. care of. There is room in this effort for the help of the
Oregon Agricultural college and for cooperation of all the
other Interests connected with the industry
. j And big' men are needed all along the line; great organ
izers; unselfish men." 'And then loyalty clear down to the
. last and "smallest grower -yl y . , - :' :
; . And; this need extends to every interest that was repre
sented by the organization, that was built up and headed by
Prof. C. I. Lewis, one of the greatest men in his line Oregon

tory, selfish and self -centered commercial aggrandizement,
and all the other qualities going with the aloofness and ex
ploitation of the hated 'foreigners' V,,
So Christianity has a long, way to go, to purge itself of
its faults, with all its warring creeds, in the United States
and the otheriso-called "Christian nations, but more espe
cialry on the mission fields. - w , 1
A recent writer has very pertinently asked this question :
"If we can all agree about the Sermon on the Mount, why go
pulling hair about Genesis?" Why do we not all strive ta
emulate the tolerant catholicity of John Wesley ? Here is one
of his messages to the world: "I will not quarrel with you
about any opinions. Only see that your heart is right toward
God, that you know and love your neighbor and walk as your
Master walked, and I desire ho more.' Why not all of us be
honestly striving to rise to the Christian charity of Paul?
"Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge
this rather, that no man put. a stumbling-block or an occasion
to fall in his brother's way." "For the kingdom of God is not
meat and drink, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the
Holy Ghost. For he that in these things serveth Christ is
acceptable to God and approved of men. Let us therefore
follow, after the things which make for peace, and things
wherewith one may nlify another."
When, accptding to the Gospel record one honest "seeker
after truth came to the,Mster, asking what he should do to
inherit eternal life. He said unto him, "What is written in
the law ? How readest thou V ..And he answering said, Thou
shall loye the' Lord , thy po with, all thy heart, and with all
thy soul, and With all thy strength, and with attlthymind,
J&d thy neighbor as thy self. And He said imtoTtfThou
hast answered right ; this do and thou shall live." Not an
intimation can be found anywhere in the gospels that any
thing less than living he truth and manifesting His spirit
of righteousness, love and service will lead one to eternal life.

There is an interesting item in the current number of the
Missionary Herald (Congregational), under the heading,
"The Baptism Plague," as follows: "The Jewish Gazette, pub
lished in Yiddish at Vienna, writes with regret of what it,
calls 'the baptism plague spreading in Vienna.' It says that
within the last twelve years twelve thousand Jews in that city
have joined Christian churches, about half of them becoming
Catholics. It is reported that in Hungary forty thousand
Jews have been baptized, that in Budapest the Presbyterians
alone have received two thousand five hundred, and that in
Ukrainia many Christian congregations, composed exclusively
of Jews, have been organized."
It is not a question of the holding of the prune meetings
for the election of the committee of one hundred. The meet
ings are being held. The delegates will b? elected. The com
mittee of one hundred -will assemble. The question is one
of cooperation of all interests concerned. Full cooperation,
continued throughout the whole time for the task, will stabil
ize the prune industry.

WHAT CHRISTIANITY MEANS
What does Christianity mean? .This is a quest ion difficult
to answer in the United States, with! its scores and scores of
sectarian creeds and slants."; It is a Imore difficult question
'.in the Far East and Near East and the other far-flung mis
sion fields. In the Near feast it means Greek Orthodox and
Armenian Gregorian to some; to others Greek nationality; to
most it means crusades, religious wars, intrigue and imper
ialism of "Christian nations," American crime-wave a
'Superiority complex," and a system opposed to one's own
