FRIDAY, FERBTJA$Y 22, 1901.
As indicated in an article pub
lislied elsewhere in this paper,
a meeting of business men and
interested citizens is to be held at
the court house tomorrow even
ing for the purpose of organizing
a commercial club or board of
trade. There are two pressing
needs for an organization of this
nature. Benton county should
make a systematic effort to
secure her proportion of the large
number of desirable immigrants
now coming to this state, and
proper steps should be taken to
welcome the stranger at our
gates, explain to him the advan
tages we have to offer and make
a good impression. Such an or
ganization could perform great
ssrvice iu attracting capital to
this section with a view to estab
lishing manufactories. Given
desirable immigrants to divide up j
our large farms and assist our
already excellent farmers to cul
tivate the soil ; and capital to de
velop our vast natural resources,
and no community will be more
prosperoas, or country more in
viting. The fault of our present
condition is in ourselves, for
nature has been lavish with un
developed wealth now lying
about us. The establishment of
such an organization as contem
plated will not only be commend
able, but is an absolute necessity.
The senate committee on com
merce has concluded considera
tion of the river and harbor bill.
Numerous amendments hereto
fore adopted were reconsidered,
and the committee caused redac
tion, in the total of the bill by
horizontal cuts on all important
items. As presented to the sen
ate the bill will provide for
$3,125 for the revetment at Cer-
vallis and $750 for the Long
i ne war department nas is
sued an order for the purehase of
500 cavalry horses in Oregon.
Over 7,000 additional are vet re
quired and it is probable that
they will be purchased in Ore
gon, both oa" account of their
quality and the saving to the
government in freight rates.
For Station at Union.
House bill 333, by McAllister,
to provide for a branch expen
men. station in Union county,
which passed the bouse Wednes
day of last week by unanimous
consent, has passed the senate.
This is a bill for an act author
izing the transfer and conveyance
of the 620 acres ot land in Union
county, Orego j, purchased by
the state for the purpose of estab
lishing a branch insane asylum
in Eastern Oregon , to the
State Agricultural College,
authorizing and empowering said
Agricultural College to use said
land fo3 an experiment station
and uch other purposes in con
nection with said college as the
board of regents of said college
may deem advisable, and to ap
propriate money for the estab
lishment of such experiment
station, and the erection, equip
ment and furnishing of buildings
necessary for that purpose .
The bill appropriates $io,oco
for buildings, equipment, and
furnishings, and conveys by deed
all the right, title and interest of
the State of Oregon to the 620
acres, to the Agricultural Col
lege. The bill further provides
that all revenues derived from
Said lanfls not necessarily used In
connection with said experiment
station, may be used by the'
board of regents of said Agricul
tural College in the improve
ment of the property herein re
ferred to, and for repairs thereto,
and for the use and benefit of
said experiment station, its
buildings, furniture and . equip
ment Oregon's Population.
Oregon was organized as a
-ritnnr Anoint i1. i8a8. and
j wv j 1 r ' r
admitted as a state February 14,
1859. The population of. the'
state jn 1900 is 413,536 as com
pared with a population in 1890
f3T3 1767, showing an increase
during the last ten years of 95,
796 or 31.8 per cent. A small
portion of this increase is due to
the fact that there were 3,713
Iudia is and 224. other oersons.
or a t.jtal of 3,937 persons oa
Indian reservations, etc., in Ore
gon, who were sprcially enumer
ated in 1890 under the provisions
of the census act, but were not
included in the general popula
tion of the state at that census.
The numerical increase in the
population of Oregon for the last
decade, as well as the rate of
increase, is less than that forlhe
one immediately preceding, when
the gain waa 138,199, or 79.5
per cent. Oregon had a popu
lation of 13,294 in 1850, which
increased nearly fourfold in the
ensuing ten years, and for each
of the three following decades
there was also a steady gain in
population. During the last
decade the numerical increase
declined somewhat, but it is
sufficient to indicate the prosper
ity of the state.
The population of Oregon in
1900 is more than thirty-one
times as large as the population
given for 1850, the first census
taken after it was organized as a
The total land surface of Ore
gon is, approximately, 94,560
square miles, the ayerage num
ber to the square mile at the
censuses of 1890 and 1900 being
as follows: 1890, 3.3; 1900, 4.4.
It will soon be time for or
chardists to turn their attention
to the care of their trees. A
writer in an exchange, comment
ing on the probable surplus in
California of from 30,000,000 lo
40,000,000 pounds of prunes this
year, makes the following sug
gestions to prunegrowers:
First That we raise larger
Second That we improve the
Third That we curtail the
Fourth Tha6 we reduce ex
penses. The heroic use of pruning
tools will go a long way toward
accomplishing all' these results.
. I would Cut away in most cases
oae-half the top. I would cat
back one and a half or two years'
growth, and thin out vigorously,
letting in plenty of sunlight and
air. This will increase the size
and quality, but decrease the
quantity, reducing . expense of
handling in orchard, evaporator
and packing room. Snpole
men heavy pruning with thor
ough cultivation, and, if need
be, hand-thinning, and the crisis
will be safely over, prices will be
maintained and reputation be
preserved. Heavy pruning acts
like a tonic, causing the tree to
throw its whole soul into new
and vigoroua growth, that means
better fruit for years to come.
Mr. Sklpton's Loss.
Frank Skipton, formerly of
this county, bat now In the
livery business in Albany, has
just suffered the loss of his best
team by drowning. The Herald
gives the following account of
Meagre particulars were re
ceived last , night of the acci
dental drowning of one of Frank
Skiptftn's fine livery teams at
Eleven's bridge across the Cala-
pooia. Thos. Chambers started
yesterday afternoon to drive int
the country and after crossing
the bridge found the high water
had flooded the road. The
horses got into swimming water.
The buggy was washed off the
the road, and Mr. Chambers
had a narrow escape from drown
ing, uota horses were drowned
and all that could be seen of the
vehicle was the top sticking out
of the water. Mr. Chambers
went to Tangent and telephoned
the news of the accident to Mr.
Skipton, who sent some men to
the scene to get the 'buggy.
Prof. F. L. Kent, who is in
charge of the dairying depart
ment of the Agricultural College,
makes a strong plea in behalf of
cheese. The consumption of
cheese is admitted to be large,
but when it is recognized at its
true value by the masses as a
food, it is likely to become even
more staple. The professor
makes the following statement:
Cheese la something more than
a' relish; it" is a food. It con
tains both carbohydrates and pro
tein. Cheese contains the most
