The annual meeting of the
Corvallis Poultry Association
was called last Thursday even
ing, for the ' purpose of electing
officers for the ensuing year and
perfecting arrangements for the
holding of their annual exhibit
in Corvallis, which will occur
in the Opera House, November
30, December 1st and 2nd. The
following officers were elected :
President, Bowen Lester; vice-
president, A. L. Knisely; secre
tary and treasurer, Gene M.
Simpson; assistant secretary, W.
G. Emery; superintendent, J. G
Horning; members of executive
committee, Henry Ambler and
W. J. Kent.
A vote of thanks was given the
retiring officers for their untiring
efforts in holding last year the
most successful poultry show in
the state. Not only those direct
ly interested in breeding fancy
poultry, but the business men f
Corvallis in general, aided mater
ially in making the last show a
success. No other town in the
state has been so advertised by
its fancy poultry as Corvallis.
Scarcely a show ot any promin
ence on the coast has been held
during the past few years with
out at least a few birds from
Corvallis beine the winners of
The books of the association
show about $30.00 on hand from
last year, and the amount of in
terest being taken again this sea
son insures a rousing big show
for Corvallis this year. Some
big special prizes will be offered, i
the nature of which will appear
in these columns later. Last
year Corvallis advertised "the
first and largest poultry show in
the state" and delivered the
goods. Again the fall show sea
son on the coast is opened in
Corvallis. Our fanciers realize
the advantage of holding the
first show of the season.
The catalogue of last year's
show was the neatest thing ever
gotten out on the coast, and was
printed in this office. A com
mittee consisting of Henry
Amble, J. M. Porter and Prof.
McKellips was appointed to get
up trie catalogue lor this year's
show. It is the general custom
of poultry shows to wait until in
tending exhibitors write for a
catalogue, giving ruks and pre
mium lists, etc., but to keep up
the reputation of Corvallis for
doing things" the Coryallis As
sociation mails a catalogue to
every poultryman on the coast,
from an alphabetical list made
up every year by the secretary.
C. G. Hinds, of Alameda, Calif.,
who officiated last year, will
judge this year's show. His rep
utation as a poultry judge is too
well known to need further intro
duction. This year's show will
have many new features. Watch
these columns for particulars.

New York. The recent gold exports,
small In volume as they were, are sug
gestive of the relations which this mar
ket bears to those of Europe and serve
to recall the fact that one of the po
tent factors in shaping the course of ex
change between New York and Euro
pean centers Is the summer expenses
of Americans sojourning in Europe.
This is an item which naturally does
not appear in the reports of our for
eign trade, but it is" of sufficient impor
tance to materially modify the balance
of trade in our favor representing the
excess of exports over imports.
These expenses of Americans in Eu
rope go on of course in some degree all
through the year, but the amount spent
abroad-is naturally largest in summer,
and it is during this season that the
effect of this particular feature of the
international exchange situation is
most felt. "With the increase in travel
to European countries the amount
spent in this way by Americans has
largely increased in recent years. It
is of course impossible to estimate close
ly the amount of money hich is an-
nually lost to the United States in this
way, but that the amount is large is
universally admitted. On the other side
even closer attention is given to this
particular phase of our foreign rela
tions than we ourselves give to it.
A New York banker who was recently
abroad largely in connection with im
portant exchange transactions, in dis
cussing this question the other day
stated t that while in Paris he met a
French banker who had made careful
investigations with a view of ascertain
ing so far as possible the actual amount
of this particular factor in the exchange
market. The estimate finally reached
by this banker was that the amount
spent annually by Americans traveling
in Europe was close to 80.000.000. or
$40.0,000,000. This is fully 5150 000.000
in excess of the estimates that have
been current for some years. This is
one of the things which explains why.
despite the large trade balances in our
favor, the New York market is frequent
ly placed in the position of a debtor
abroad. This item and perhaps an
equally large mount annually paid to
foreigners for height and insurance
charges on ocean traffic make up a sum
which it takes a Tery large trade bal
ance to offset.

Lancaster, Pa. For 17 years Colum
bus O. Rate, residing near the city
limits, has fought unaided the Big
Spring & Beaver Valley Turnpike ,
company, whose road passed his prop
erty, and which, he maintained, was a
public nuisance. His victory has final
ly been won, the court having just or
dered the turnpike condemned.
As far back as 1888 Rate first began
condemnation proceedings against the
company. The latter resisted, and a
suit resulted, which Rate won; but the
decision was reversed by the supreme
court. Rate then refused to pay toll,
and threatened to tear down the gate
house, thereby inviting another suit to
test his allegation that the turnpike
was a nuisance and an unnecessary
public infliction. 7
Again he was prosecuted, and won
the suit in the lower court, only "to be
again reversed. Still unrelenting in
his determination to close the toll
gate, Rate, with the assistance of his
neighbors, began an agitation for the
easion of South, Duke street. It
was finally opened to a point beyond
the company's tollhouse, enabling trav
elers to get into and out of the city with
out paying toll.
This was a practical victory for Rate,
for the company's business was in time
almost completely destroyed. The road
was soon in a deplorable condition,
owing to lack of repairs, and then Rate
again took steps to have it condemned
and the toll gate removed. 1
These have at last been successful,
and the turnpike is now a free public
highway. Nearly the entire length of
the turnpike was within the city limits.
New York. According to the final es
timates of th6 commissioner of taxes
and assessments, New York city this
year is worth $5,812,156,227 and will pay
taxes on this amount. This is an in
crease of $271,613,570 over the assessed
value last year. Of this increase $06
12u,522 is charged against real estate
and special franchises, the latter, under
the law, being charged as real estate
The balance, $65,493,038, represents the
increase in the value of the personal es
tates of the resident's of the city which
the commir.3ioners have been able to
place on the tax rolls.
This increase will cut the tax rate of
$1.51342 on each $100 of last year to
$1,46885 this year. The reduction tb
year, the las: ot Mayer McUiellan-s pres
ent term Co mayor, does not equal thr
rate in 1303, the last year of Mayo;
Low's administration, however, when
the tax rate was $1.41367.
Andrew Carnegie still leads the list
on the personal tax rolls, being assessed
at $5,000,000 on his personal estate. In
addition Mr. Carnegie's residence on
Fifth avenue and Nineteenth street is
assessed at $2270,000, He will be re
quired to pay a bill of $107,000 when the

John D. Rockefeller is second on the
personal list with an assessment of

an assessment of $2,000,000.

HENRY AMBLER. PHILOMATH.
An eminent physician, writing to
the London Daily Mail, demands legis
lation which will prohibit marriages
between persons afflicted with either
mental or physical diseases. He as
serts that his investigations show that
a large proportion of the inmates in
hospitals and insane asylums are com
mitted to those institutions because
they inherited their affliction. "In
savage races," he adds, "natural selec
tion remorselessly cuts down the dis
eased, the race does not become con
taminated, and thus a high standard
of health i3 maintained. We, on the
other hand, surround the weaklings
with an artificial environment, and
we struggle with all our strength
against the law which condemns the
unfit to extinction." -
