els where ho anticipated COO. Wc hear
of many valley farms that disappoint in
tho same way. The best expectations,
last April, were that the Columbia river
would reach 300,000 tons, or 10,000,000
bushels of wheat. At one time, in July,
expectation fell so that the estimate was
reduced to 200,000 tons, but tho excel
lent yield reported in all directions, gives
reason to believe that we shall yet realize
the first cstimato of 300,000 tons, or ten
millions of bushels.

Mb. Boiieut Imurie, of Washington
county, is well known as a successful
"termor. Wo tried to learn his methods
the other day, for we beliovo Buccess is
based on good methods of business. Mr.
Imbrie say farming is a business that
leaves no time for idleness, and what ho
bat made has been earned by work
ing earlier and later than tho world
generally works. In other words, a far
mor who works ten hours and quits, is
apt to have to work always, if he lives to
be A hundred, but tho farmer who works
a long as tlioro is work to do, and as long
a he is able, has a chance to gain some
thing. Thoro is a strong suggestion in
this. Tho farmer has a deal of work to
do and can only succeed by making overy
hour count for somothing accomplished.
Talxino at tho State Fair nbout tho
changes that take ploco in wheat cultiva
tion in this valley, Mr. C. P. Burkhart
gave interesting experience. Wo had in
mind tho California Spring wheat that
was sent up and sowed laBt spring, which
baa given general satisfaction, as it yields
well and ripens earlier than our earliest
spring varioties, but the suggestion was
made that it was rather flinty which
might bo an ebjection. Mr. Uurkhari
said it was his experience that llinty
grain grow softer when cultivated here h
few years. Sonoma wheat was very flinty
but now is not ; there 1ms boon no olr
jectlou made on that account for some
years past. Also red v. heat Iom's its color.
Tho Kinney wheat was objected to by
millers some years ago,ns red, but now it
almost white in color.
We reap in tho Kastcru local papers
that wheat everywhere, especially in the
tho Palouso Country, is turning oil' K-ttei

fact in this valley, us wo can inMauco on

The agriculture of Western Oregon
will soon bo governed by different condi
tions. Tho products of this region will
be required to supply tho wants of a city
of one hundred thousand population, and
other business points, on Puget Sound,
and the Columbia, will require as much
more. It is within reason to believe that
a quarter of a million population of cities
in Western Oregon and Washington will
havo to bo fed within ten years from this
date. It shall be the aim of our agricul
ture to supply the needs of this home
market so thoroughly as to leave no room
for California products to find sale. At
tho present time the carrying of products
from California docs much to support
tho lino of steamers between San Fran
cisco and Portland. We import butter
and cheese by tho ton twice a week:
fruits and vegetables, dried and canned
products, manufactured products of
many kinds that could be grown and
put up hero are brought hero by hun
dreds of tons, and in return wo send
them tho money received for our staples
.wheat and wool. A condition of things
that should not exist.
There is better dairying country along
our rivers and along the coast counties
than California can furnish and there is
no reason wny wo snouiu purchase a
pound of dairy produce from any other
region. Early fruit and vegetables will
naturally and properly find their way
hero and fruits and products of wanner
climes must be imported or gone with
out. To some extent tho law of exchange
must exist but not to the extent that now
prevails. Homo production is tho great
est possible relief for hard times. So long
as wo import what we can profitably pro
duce, there is something wrong and tho
balance is the wrong way.
It is not easy to acquiro tho art of mar
ket gardening and dairying to jierfcction
but we now have such industries estab
lished and tho question is to increase
them sufficiently to supply tho markot.
It is a sight that would astonish our far
mers to see a steamer's freight unloaded
overy thrco days, iiunurpos 01 dray
loads of southern products aro sent to tho
different dealers and by them distributed,
not only to the grocers of Portland, but
sent up tho Willamette and Columbia to
overy town and village in Oregon and
Washington Territory. Of theso supplies
tho greater part could bo produced at
home, and should bo. Thero is no ex
cuse for such an import trade unless wo
concede that wo aro content to raise
wheat and wool and buy all other neccs
saries from foreign growers.
Not only should wo supply tho homo
markot but we should supply tho mining
regions of Montana and Idaho that will
havo a greater demand at soon as their
mines aro fully developed. Our farmers
talk about the need of manufactures but
had as well look noarer, to realize tho ne
cessity for stopping this continual impor
tation of agricultural products that can
ment, extending their researches as
circumstances may direct. Another
branch of business for these societies shall
be to get up annual exhibits of county
products. These can cither be shown at
County Fairs or made part of tho annual
display of the present agricultural society.
At tho late Fair four counties made credit
able displays. That is to say, the same idea
occurred to four influential gentlemen in
four counties, and Clackamas, Wasco,
Marion and Lane counties were well rep
resented, but not as full as could be de
sired. To sum up tho suggestion, it is pro
posed that this work shall bo under
the parent guidance of the State Agri-1
cultural Society, one object being to in
crease tho influence for good of that soci
ety. Tho faculty of the Agricultural
College consent to tako a leading, or at
least a helping hand, in organizing and
conducting theso branch societies, or
farmer's clubs, not with any intrusive
spirit, but as helpers already enlisted in
service of tho State. These gentlemen
also suggest that the Willamette Far
mer shall initiate the movement in its
columns, as we do now, and take active
interest as an agricultural journal in re
porting proceedings and discussions and
forwarding tho success of clubs or socie
ties so organized. This work we cheer
fully accept and invito tho co-operation
of all other journals in forwarding so
gooo. a cause.
We have already presented the matter
for general consideration. It is to be re
gretted that the work had not been ini
tiated at the beginning of State Fair
Week, duo announcement having been
given beforehand. Had that been done
farmers from different counties could
have met, initiated the movement and
when at home carry it into fuller execu
How to mako a beginning is the im
portant question. October is the time,
and fall and winter tho seasons for work
of that kind. All are invited to make
suggestions. Wo havo tho machinery
necessary in tho Stato Society and the
faculty of the college. Tho assistance of
the Stato press can bo heartily counted
on. To carry out the plan as proposed
will bo to organize all the agriculture of
Oregon in friendly league for kindly
work. Some may say that it will inter
fere with tho Grange not in the least.
Tho true granger will make our best and
most reliable member. All cannot be
got into tho Grange but oil can come
without question or complaint to join a
Stato organization.
For onco let all the fanners of Oregon,
east and west of tho Cascades, put their
hands to this cultivator and seeder and
not back until tho agriculture of the
State responds to the movement. Success
has attended such movements in Michi
gan and Kansas and no just reason ex
ists why we should not realize success for
it in Oregon.
management. Should, by any possibility,
tho control of all the Pacific roads pass
to one great corporation, we cannot look
for even a shadow of competition and
scarcely for reasonably liberal manage
The Central and Southern routes are
supposed to be good properties and the
local traffic is counted on to maintain
them. Tho local traffic on the Central
route amounts to four-fifths of all its bus
iness income. The Northern Pacific pos
sesses far greater assurance of success in
the future than do either of the roads to
the southward. This country has rich
mining interests to be developed all
through Montana, Idaho and Washing
ton, and has far more good, agricultural
lands than the others possess to become
productive and increase it3 traffic. In
the foot-hills of the Rocky Mountains we
lately saw wheat and other grain fields
excellent gardens and meadows, whilo
the bunch-grass hills carry cattle safely
through the winter. It is impossible to
estimate the value of all that northern
route and tho country tributary to it, but
enough is known to assert that from the
Missouri river to the Cascade range, on
that line, compared with parallel territory
in Utah and Nevada, thero is several
times more land for production and in
ducement for a much greater population.
Also, tho Northern route has immense
wealth of iron ore, coal deposits, and
boundless forests, besides the greater in
ducement of agriculture. The Northern
line posesses undoubted assurances of
success and the development of tho coun
try tributary to it will give it unequaled
business prosperity.
Iki grown at homo.
Tho faculty of tho State Agricultural
College, represented by Prof. E. Grim,
son of Judge J. W. Grim, ono of tho Pio
neers of Marion county, recently called
our attention to a project that seems not
to Iki difficult of accomplishment and is
important for all agricultural interests if
it can bo carried out. Theso gentlemen
wish to thoroughly identify themselves
with agricultural interests. Prof. Grim
is a graduate of tho college, who after
wards took a degree at the Stato Aricul
tural College of Michigan, and so became
well qualified for the important chair of
Agricultural Chemistry, which ho now
holds. Ho was born in Oregon, son of a
pioneer, Judge J. W. Grim, of Marion
couuty. 1 lie faculty at Lorvnllis wish to
identify that iuMitutiou with farmers a:
a class and farming as an interest. The
college 1ms not nearly the memlHnhip it
deserves. We do not hear that Denton
county has done au thing for it but to
appropriate the M'liolnrr.hik.. The Pro
fcsxois show coiuiut mlablo zeal in pio
poMiig to take hold of the interests of
agrieultuie' in nil the counties and assist
in forming and conducting county socie
ties. TIicmj (hall discus all matters in
common. At Stato Fair timo an annual
session or convention will bo held, repre
senting all tho agriculturoof tho State.
These societies can havo regular debates
and discussions concerning important
features of farm life and mausgt-
It is wonderful to see what Wall street
can accomplish against all reason and
how terrified men will becomo when the
bulls and bears play their respective
games. Of lato tho street has been "bear
ing," or pulling down, tho Villard stocks.
The complotion of tho railroad places the
Northern Pacifio upon a well-assured and
positively safo basis, yet the enimies of
tho road havo organized a raid and con
ducted it so well, or ill, that many who
held tho stocks have hastened to sell at a
great decline It has really been a tre
mendous gambling scheme where tho
sales mado wero not real. Men bet thoir
mony that stocks will go up or down and
when tho time comes that tho bargain ex
pires they settle the difference. Stocks
are not really sold in such cases, without
a man insists on his nghts. Tho bears
havo lately gone to tho world with a state
ment that ViUiml has been so oxtmva-
gant in finishing the road that it is invol
ved more than it should be, which was
the basis for tho raid. A statement is
published by tho company, which shows
that tho enterprise is all right and its af
fairs well conducted.
We showed tho other day that it was
not an impossibility for tho majority of
tho stock to bo acquired by the jre.it mo
nopoly that already controls die other
fnniseontlnental routes. Ii is claimed
that Gould and Huntington arocarrving
on this depressing war ami it is reported
lh.it tho Transcontinental Company,
which held tho controlling slu,-es of the
Northern Pacific, had been obliged to soil
largely of thee stocks. If this is true it
may not be impossible for Villard "to lose
control, though what we know of his pru
dence and the strength of his following
gio confidence in his ability to hold tho
There is an old sa3'ing that "honesty is
the best policy," which should become a
maxium of the Oregon State Agricultural
Society. Things that are immoral are not
honest, and we believe that the enforce
ment of the maxium in the Society's
management would be the best policy.
Temporizing with wickedness may seem
to secure temporary success,but tho future
will demonstrate the folly of it. It is
painful to us, representing tho interests
of Agriculture as wo do and known as
the organ of tho State Society, to see its
negligence to use a wild phrase de
nounced and read in the Oregonian such
paragraphs as this : "The most nefarious
schemes were runing during the last three
days, and bold faced swindling was carried
on openly and unmolested." It goes on
to ctlisure the Board of Directors for per
mitting such things at all. Somebody is
certainly to blame. Thero should be a
State Fair police provided for by law and
the law should enact stringent penalties
for violation of our common statutes
respecting such things.
It seems that the State Fair is used to
cover up wickedness. Men get license to
keep refreshment stalls, or to do some ap
parently proper business, and under this
shield they sell liquor in defiance of stat
ute, carry on gambling schemes that
amount to actual robbery. Wo have
talked plainly on this subject heretofore
and we feel that it would be better to
abandon the State Stato Fair rather than
to sustain it as a licensed highway to
moral ruin. Thero should bo no possi
bility to sell intoxicating liquor on the
ground and no gambling device should
bo allowed. If pools are sold, let it be
done outside and prohibit betting of any
una at tno track. .Let us have a straight
forward and honest State Fair, such as
tho character of tho members of the
Board of Managers seems to warrant, or
let thero bo no Fair. It is not proper for
tho association or for tho State of Oregon
to bo compromised by such immoral pro
ceedings as we hear of every year and
could witness if we choso to investigate.
The attendance is not as full now

years ago when tho country was new and
people scarco. The best people complain
of this immoral conduct and many refuse
to come. To adopt such a plan as would
lie above criticism and leave no chance for
swindling schemes, gambling or drunken
ness, would, wo firmly believo, give better
satisfaction and better returns. It is not
necessary, to make the Fair support itself,
that its managers should enter into a
league with xin. It will bo far better to
adopt a high standard of principlo and
stand firmly by it, and command thereby
the respect and support of all honorable
and honest men.
for the Mayor $5,000 per annum salary
and agreed to pay $1,000 per annum in
any case, to indemnify him for the timo
lost acting as Mayor.
This delightful scheme was canied so
far that Chapman is Mayor, out tno
sMiPmprs havo not been able to elect
themselves to tho positions named. The
coin was found to bribe voters to elect
Chapman, but the City Council, bad as it
is, could not be counted on to carry out
the Mayor's wishes and pay his liabili
ties. Besser has had to content himself
with the minor position of clerk to the
Chief of Police.
Wo havo held up, to our readers, for a
year or so past, the muddy nature of
Portland politics and havo warned the
country that the greatest work it has to
do is to counteract tho schemes for plun
der and the general corruption certain to
be fomented in that city. Hero is a spe-
cimea. of the way things are done there.
In all that has been proved concerning
political corruption in the Tweed era,
was New York City under a more un
blushingly corrupt ring than is Portland
now. The present Chief of Jfolice does
not represent the politics of that city and
does not possess the history and reputa
tion to entitle him to fill so responsible a
position. He has been the most bare
faced instrument of corrupt practices
and has done as much as possible for an
unscrupulous tool of politicians to do to
wards demoralizing the politics of the
State. Of this he openly boasts and the
story of his political career he brazenly
tells as if dishonest practices were at a
premium. How he came to win this ap
pointment, what bond was signed and
what money paid, and to be paid, is a
matter that would interest if it could
be known. That venal conditions pre
vailed in that as in other instances, we
have no occasion to doubt.

On the third Saturday of August, pur

Grange of Multnomah, Washington and
Clackamas counties, met at tho Oswego

of business a committee was appointed
to take into consideration a plan for
