he want to pell what will be needed
by the wool associations of Washing
ton. Oregon and Idaho. He has al
ready been in touch with the Wash
ington authorities and they are ex
pecting to use S.OOO ton, he says. His
idea Is to charter a boat from Lo An
geles, deliver to Portland by water,
and from there to delivery point by
rail. In this way. he expects to cut
freight rate to the bone. The rail
rate at present is $15.80 a ton. The
enmblnotlon water and rail yrate Is
$12.90 and another tariff goes into ef
fect on water rate September 1 which
will be lower. If a sufficient quantity
of the cake can he gold to Justify the
chartering of a steamer, Pratt thinks
he run deliver to Pendleton nnd .enst
ern Oregon point at a fre'ght cost of
$10 the ton.
If thl sort of a deal can be ar
ranged, the cost of the product laid
down will be from $38 to $40 a ton
on September and November delivery.
The content of the cake will be 40 per
cent protein and 7 per cent fat.
Wallowa county is the heaviest user
of this cake In this part of the state,
the growers there using the concen
trated food as a supplementary ration
for stock run on winter range. Its
light hulk in proportion to It feeding
value make It the Ideal feed for use
on the winter range on account of th
lessening of transportation charges to
the feeding grounds. Other sections
using quite a lot of the, cake are thr
I Heppner and ll-Vho districts. Some Is
' used by men whose headquarter are
In Pendleton, but this district does nn
require as large an amount as the
other section. Wallowa county usu
ally requires about 500 ton.
If there in sufficient demand from
stockmen .'n thl part of the state, Mr.
Hoke asld thl morning that later an
order might be placed. The selling
company guarantee to protect the
buyer against any decrease in price.

The last session was held at Sa
leiii ami it is desired to hold the

confined more to this section
than to Western Oregon.. The se
lection of the meeting place rests
with the officers, A. .1. Sanford

Mr Sctillen thinks Pendleton
will be chosen for the. meeting
place. There will be about 100'
growers In attendance. At the.
present time this comity ship
about 20 cars of honey annually.
Not only does I'matllla county rank
first in Oregon in the production of
wheat, but it ranks first also in the
production of honey. So says H. A.
Scullen, O. A. C. bee specialist who
was In Pendleton this morning on his
way to Freewater to hold bee culture
Other Oregon counties m.iy have
more bees than has Umatilla county.
Mr. Scullen states, but bi-e keeper of
this county are good business men and
the actual amount of honey produced
Is greater than in any other part of
Most of the bees in this county are
in the east and west ends and deieni
mostly on alfalfa blooms for their
food. Early In the spring they feed
upon willow and maple, later on dan
delions, other wild flowers and fruit
blossoms, and still later on alfalfa
blooms. This bloom- Is most essential
and may make or ruin a honey crop,
Mr. Scullen states. There Is a com
plete failure in the Ontario arid Cald
well resrlon because weevils have de-
stroyed the alfalfa crop, the specialist j
