THE P01LTRY QUESTION.
Am Excellent Paper by B. B. Thonteson at
Last Meeting at tne O range.
At the. open, session of the Corvallis
Grange last Saturday the .poultry quest
ion, was up for discussion. , Dr James
Withycombe in introducing the subject
stated that Oregon farmers supply the
state's demand for poultry bnt not for
eggs t -. But large quantities xt poultry
are shipped into California which ought
to be' furnished by Oregon producers.
Mr. C. H.Markhamef the S. P. R. R.
Co., is authority for the statement that
his company ' hauled to the California
markets from : Kansas and Nebraska
during 1899 a total of 224 car loads of
poultry, at a cost of $1.50 per cwt." -A
much better freight rate could be made
for Oregon shippers. With the demand
that exists and considering the tact that
poultry gives the quickest returns of .any
fkrm.stock there should be good money
in the industry. ' - , ..
Mr. B. R. Thompson was then intro
duced and spoke on the subject, "The
Most Porfi table Breed for the Farm."
Mr. Thompson said in part: The ques-.
tioa of feed is an important consideration
and of course will vary according to mar
Irom 50 cents to one dollar. .The average
the past year-Was 75 cents. Good hens
with ordinary care should produce 150
eggs annually. Last year the price easily
averaged 15 cents per dozen, hence the
receipts per hen were about $1.87), de-duct-75
cents for feed, and we have a net
profit of $1.12 and the hen besides.
With extra care more eggs per hen could
The price for chicks ranges from $1.50
to 6.00 pt r dozen depending on size and
market conditions. . Little profit can.be
made on live poultry after the fowls are
six months old, if feed costs much.
There is a laying type and a meat type
f the hen just as there is a milk type
audit beef type of the cow. The dual
purpose chick has not as yet been a
success. There is no breed that success
fully covers both conditions. I have
tried Barred and White Plymouth Rocks,
Brown and White Leghorns,, Silver and
Laced Wyandottes, Black Minorcas and
Black HambnrgSi - The Leghorns, Min
orcas and Hambargs are the (best layers.
The Minorcas are the largest of the lay
ing type and lay the largest eggs of any
breed.". J They also lay very evenly all the
year around. Most "any old hen" w&l

Died at. Dawson.
' News has been received at . Albany of
the death of C, W. Watts,' af Dawson
City, Alaska, ; March th?; : Charley.'
Watts was quite well known by the
printing fraternity throughout "the state
and by the people of this section general
ly. He leaves a wife and daughter who
reside in Albany. " ; .;.!.:
-Mr. Watts was born in Yamhill county
about forty years ago, and up to the
time of going to. Alaska, about two ..years
ago made' his home in' this state." He
was a son of the well known pioneer Dr.
J. W. Watts. He was a printer by trade
and has been connected w ith ; various
papers in the Willamette valley, at one
time being editor of the Daily Statesman
of Salem. He was a rustler and active
in politics, and at one time reading clerk
of the legislature and was chief clerk at
another time, and gave splendid satisfac
tion each time, lie was a good news
paper writer. He resided in Albany for
about fifteen Tears before going to the
Klondike where he was engaeed in the
job printing business. ' .
When. Klondike excilmcnt was at its
height Tie went te Alaska with.' several
other Albany men, including D. B. Mon
teith, who died at Skagway more than a.
year ago, and Jwas his close ' friend.
After engaging in ; the restaurant and
hotel, business ' at' Skagway and Lake
Bennett he went on to Dawson City
where he again engaged iu the hotel
business and also did a mining brokerage
business in connection with some wealthy
New York men, and was doing ' a good
business until the Cape No"me excitement
rather depleted Dawson of speculators.
It was his intention to go on to' Nome in
the spring. - . . ' Y . ' ' '
Has the Right Sonnd.
. To the Editor, . . - . ; ; .
Your answer to "A subs riber" on the
question of "High Rate of Taxation" ill
I believe be heartily endorsed by every
tax payer in- the country. In addition
to the salaries you mentioned of the
county judge and county school super
intendent that were raised without notice
or knowledge of the taxpayers, of the
county, I wish to call attention to that of
the prosecuting attorney of this, district,
lor over twenty years he has been paid
a salary of $500 per year and allowed
certain fees which made the office worth
about $1500 per year, the last legislature
raised his salary 16 $4000 per year .with
out any previous knowledge or notice to
the taxpayer; a thousand-dollars a year
inore than is paid to the judge of. the
pistrict: This raise is a clean" gift to the
jpresecutiri attorney, as i he is not required
to furnish or pay a single deputy, while
the district attorney in the third district"
in which, there is double the business
that there is in thia district, receives only
$150 more a year a?nd is required to pay a
deputy in Marion county $500 per annum,
Linn $400, Yamhill $250, Polk $240, THa
mook $200. Such 'schemes as thia is
what has contributed largely" to increase
the taxes until the burden has become
almost unbearable. The remedy you
suggest is good as far as it goes, but I
think in addition whoever is-nominated
for the legislature should be required to
pledge themselves to a reduction of the
salaries named. I am in favor further
of consolidating the clerks and recorders
offices, and paying the clerk and sheriff
in fees instead of a salary, then they
will get their pay from persons who re
quire and obtain their services. There
was never a better way of paying a clerk
and sheriff than by a well regulated fe
bill.- Why should people who never go
into court, pay for those who are always
in court? ' '- .

Wants a Stock Farm.
We acknowledge a pleasant call from
Mr.' L. L.' Brooks, who arrived from
Iowa last week on a vsiit to friends in
this vicinity. Since seeing Oregon and
enjoying a. few . days- of her mild and
delightful climate, Mr. Brooks has de
cideu to cnange the visit into a perma
nent residence here, ' if be can secure
property; to his' liking. He is a breeder
of fine stock' and is desirous of obtaining
a good stock farm of from 500 to 800
acres, containing enough bottom' land to
raise a sufficient quantity of bay to meet
demands upon it. .. . v'
If satisfactory arrangements, can be
made, - Mr. Brooks will dispose of his
large stock farm in Iowa; upon which he
now has 160 head of blooded cattle," ' In
contrasting our present weather condi
tions with those in. the East, he said that
a letter from friends in Illinois. ; dated
March 27th, stated that four inches of
snow covered the ground and that it was
still snowing. In Corvallis March 27th
was a warm balmy day.
