The audiences were all large and
generally he was sent out alone.
He divided time with such men as
Congressman Fisher of Vermont, Con

gressman J, Hampton Moore of Phlla

Burke of Pittsburg, and Congressman
Nicholas Longworth of Ohio.
' In appreciation of his worth the
Republican National Congressional

In praise of Mr. Hawley are as fol
lows: The Meadvlllo Morning Star, Mead
vllle, Pennsylvania, for October 27,
1908, says In beginning a column re
port of his speech: "Hon. W. C.
Hawley, who by his breezy western
wit captured the big crowd from the
very beginning of his speech was the
last speaker and Ms speech proved
to be the big event of the evening."
And the Star further says editorially,
"Talk about apathy In this campaign
there never was a greater political
meeting held in Meadvlllo than that
that of Monday night. The Academy
of Music was packed to the roof and
doors with' 1200 people, and twice as
many more outside packed street
from wall to wall and from Park Av.
to Cottage street. The meetings out
side and Inside were enthusiastic to
a degree and. the speeches of Con
gressmen Moore, Hawley, Bates and
General Cunningham were exception
ally fair, clear cut and illuminating.
Congressman Moore's thoughtful and
practical address and Congressman
Hawley's breezy, humorous western
style delighted the audiences. The
latter's magnificent tribute to Judge
Taft's great decisions in trust and
labor cases has seldom If ever been
surpassed on the political platform In

On June 7, 1908, Congreaa paaaed
a law removing the Internal revenue
tax of $2.07 per gallon on grain al
cohol which had been properly de
natured or rendered unfit for drink
Ing purpoaea by the addition of certain
material audi aa wood alcohol, ben
line or pyridine. It waa hoped that
by the removal of thla tax alcohol
could be obtained cheaply enough to
compete with petroleum for light and
fuel. The demand for auch alcohol
can be readily aeen when we note
that approximately 3 million gallona
of gasoline are consumed dally In
the country and that the Increased
demand for It, due to the develop
ment of the modern explosion mot
or, haa doubled ita price In the last
10 years. Indiana and Ohio oila con
tain only about 5 per cent of gasoline
and the per cent of the lighter di
tlllate In California and Texaa crude
oil la very low. The supply of gaso
line therefore aeema to be limited
but the demand increasing. Alcohol,
It haa been demonstrated, can meet
this demand. Furthermore the an
nual consumption of kerosene in the
United States approximates one bil
lion gallons, three-fourths of which
are probably used by the farmers.
Since one .gallon of alcohol Is equi
valent to two gallons of kerosene for
lighting purposes 375 million gallons
of alcohol could be used on the farms ,
of this country each year. Thla
would require for Ita production 140
million bushels of corn, or 5 million
acres an increase of 5 per cent over
that now grown. If made from pota
toes this 375 million gallons of alco
hol would require 450 million bushels,
or 5 million acres, an Increase of
60 per cent over that now produced
The present consumption of alcohol
amounts to about 16 million gallons
Ethyl or grain alcohol is a natural
product formed by the fermentation
of various kinds of sugar through the
agency of yeast organisms. Since
starch is readily convertible into su
gar by either natural or artificial
means, materials which contain not
able quantities of either starch or su
gar may be utilized for making alco
hoi, , The more important sources of
alcohol are the cereals, potatoes, mo
lasses and fruits. In France alcohol
is chiefly made from the sugar beet,
In Germany from the potato and In
America from corn. A bushel of
corn will yield approximately 2ft
gallons of 95 per cent alcohol; abu
shel of potatoes of a gallon and a
bushel of apples one-third of a gal
lon. The yield depends directly upon
the sugar and starch content of the
material used and in general sugar
will yield one-half its weight in al-

A telegram waa received In Dallas
Wednesday morning announcing the
death of Henry Howe at his home in
Ilelllngham, Wash. Henry Howe was
Son of William and Catherine Howe
and was born in Newton, Indiana,
November 11, 1832. He came to Ore
gon in 1851 and lived near Perrydale
ntil 1860, when he moved to Dallas.
The remains were brought to Dallas
Friday morning and the funeral ser-
ices were held from the Methodist
church at two o'clock that afternoon.
Burial was made in the old cemetery

The attendance was good consider-
In the large distilleries It costs
about 17 cents to manufacture and
place on the market one gallon of al
cohol and the cost of the raw materi
al used brings this ordinarily to ap
proximately 30 cents. Allowing for
the necessary profit alcohol will
reach the consumer at about 40 cents
per gallon. But alcohol at 40 cents
can compete with kerosene at 20
cents for lighting purposes since al
cohol has twice the illuminating valu
of kerosene and in competition kero
sene can never demand more than
one-half the market price of alcohol
For making cheap alcohol a cheap
concentrated raw product and a well
equipped plant are necessary. The
plant should have a capacity of at
least 100 gallons per day, the cost of

operate successfully on waste pro
ducts alone, especially if such are to

the year, for example waste fruits.
There must be some more staple pro

a staple in the Northwest we must

The apple display which was made
at Albany, mention of which occurred
in this paper last week, gave Polk
county merited distinction. One of
the especially important matters in
connection with the display of fine
fruits was the buying of the premium
box of Northern Spys by M. McDon
aid, president of the Oregon Nursery
Company of Salem. Mr. McDonald
paid $10 for the box and this is prob
ably the best figure a box of apples
ever brought in the state. The ap

Independence and were as fine as
can be raised in any country. Col
