Thero im great rejoicing In the
hearts of the promoters on account
of the promise which the club now
glvea. Independence Is to have a real
LlVli commercial organization that
will work harmoniously for the busi
ness development of the city and
country. Responses are coming from
all sld I'd congratulating tho new or
der of things. I'ronilaos of member
ship are coming In profusion.
This banquet of the business men
will be an auspicious affair. At this
meeting will be one of the most rep
resentative gatherings la the history
of the city.
"In honest union thero Is strength, '
aid R. H. Knox, when asked for his
opinion regarding the needs of such
an organization for the city. "We
would have little chance against
foreign enemy without union. I would
not be a worthy citizen of the town,"
continued Mr. Knox, "if I did not
work with the rest for the advance
ment of the town and this club.
will do everything that I can to
further the matter of a commercial
club in Independence. It Is deserv
ing of the support of the people."
"I am glad that you are about to
get together for the organization of a
commercial club" said Mr. Treanor,
of the Little Palace Hotel. "There
is no greater need that the town has.
I am heartily In support of it and
will do everything that I can to assls
in the matter. It Is a chance to re-
Juve.nali life and get tho benefits of
emigration to our country.
"It is one way out for Independ
ence to have a commercial club," said
J. S. Coopor. "The salvation of the
town and surrounding country Is in
the organization of a live push club.
This has been one of my cherished
hopes, that we would finally bo able
to have such an organization. In the
organization of a commercial club I
can see that Independence la bound
to come to the front. It has always
been one of my set rules to put my
shoulder to the wheel, even with my
bitterest enemies when the welfare of
the community la at stake. In union
there is strength. "
"That la the proper thing to do and
we should railroad the first man out
of town who "goes to, kicking," said
J. Dornsife, when approached on the
matter. , "I have just heard of the
proposal, and I hasten to say that it
is a proper move in the right direc
tion. I ' am heartily tired of seeing
men standing around on the streets
crying the town down. Other towns
scrap among themselves, it is true,
but they stick together on matters
of public concern."
M. Merwin congratulates the new
, movement for a commercial club in
the following words: "The thing to
do is to unite as one man and to

Twenty-one hundred and ninety
pounds of publicity were forwarded
to the east by the Portland Com
merclal Club last week. This was
in addition to the six tons that went
two weeks earlier. The printers will
soon be busy in turning out one
million leaflets advertising the one
way colonists rates to Oregon points,
and these leaflets will go out through
the boys and girls attending school
preachers and churches, banks
buisness houses, factories hotels, and
the homes of Portland, whose example
in this work should be followed by
every community in Oregon. People
can buy their tickets to almost every
rail point in the state Just as cheaply
aa they can , to Portland, but if they
buy them only to Portland they have
to pay local rates from this city to
their final destination. "

asked: "Shall agriculture be taught
In the rural schools?". On this ques

among the farmers, and the topic Is
being debated at meetings. State
Lecturer Johnson desires that all es
says on these topics be sent to him
at his Portland office as early as con

to be used by them, thus affording an
exchange of opinions.

A signal success In dairy industry
has just come to our notice from C.S.
Bowne of Aulmsville says Salem
Statesman. Mr. Bowne is milking
nina cows and in December sold
$127.59 worth of butter fat, averaging
114.17 per cow. He says that he
did practiacally as well in January,
and it will run over $100 for Pebuary.
Mr. Bowne has altogether twenty-
one head, but the balance are young
cattle which he has not yet begun to
milk. He keeps Jerseys exclusively,
some of which are grades, and some
of which he thinks pure bred, worthy
of rglster if he would take the
trouble to look up their records.
They are all fine animals and the
herd is headed by a bull from the
Ladd farm near Portland, so that Mr.
Bowne is producing only the best and
is a splendid example of the possi
bilities of the hundred dollar cow.
He has carefully weighed every pound
of milk and kept account for the last
three years, and the cattle have
averaged over $100 per head during
that time, doing better each year.
More of such herds of dairy cattle
and less of the$40 and $50 cows will
do wonders towards developing this
Industry in the northwest.
Free Press Man
J. H. O'Brien, field editor of the
Oregon Free Press of Salem, was In
Independence the first of the week.
He was here in the Interest of
state edition of his paper which he
piomlses will be distributed over
the West by a publication of 25,000
copies. The resources of the coun
try which will be presented in the
publication will be intended to show
homeseekers what we have here.
"The flax industry in this state Is
becoming an established factor," said
Mr. O'Brien in an Interviow with
the Enterprise. "Oregon flax is now
rated as superior 4 to any on the
market," he continued. "The indust
ry, however, is stlu in its infancy.
While we are not situated in a trop
ical climate everything that can be
grown in a semi-tropical climate can
be produced here. The East is crowd
ed and new people are coming to the
West every day by hundreds. The
railroads have taken It upon ihein-1
selves to enlighten the people of
tho East as to the wonderful oppor
tunities offered out here. It should
be remembered that they cannot be
expected to do it all. It is true that
they are prompted to an extent by
mercenary motives, but if is their
realization thac the futura population
of the country is going to pay the op
erating expenses and dividend.! of the
railroads of flit- 'Vtft and they are
looking ahead for this time.
"We have a wonderful country in
this Willamette vaHey. It cannot be
overdrawn. Get your people to wake
up. Get in and build up your town
and country to meet the people when
they come. They are coming. They
are coming in swarms, to all over the
Pacific coast. The communities which j
are getting the most of them are
those which have done publicity work
to the greatest extent. That is nat
ural. That is the class of work that
you should be doing. And until you
do this you will not get all that is
coming to you, nor any part of it."
Please Act on This
An enormous amount of attention
has been excited by the invitation to
