We believe that a successful system of handling grain in bulk depends upon the individual
farmer providing his own storage on the farm; either by bins, granaries or farm elevators, where
grain may be held until sold.
. It has been fully demonstrated that the present flat warehouses can be successfully adapted at
comparatively small expense, to hanaling grain in bulk.
Full assurance has been given by the railway officials and terminal warehouses that thjry will
meet farmers and interior warehouse men in arranging for the full handling of grain in bulk. ' .
In answer to the argument that grain must be sacked for exporting from the Pacific Coast, au
chentic reports show that less than 25 pot cent of the grain from the Northwest is exported annually
ind the Panama Canal has removed the necessity of sacking the, greater part of the small perceut-
ige of the of the crop that is exported.
The.grain prices in the world's market are quoted on a bulk basis, therefore there will be no dif
ference in the price of bulk or sacked grain when the bulk system prevails throughout this territory.
Since it is practically, the unanimous opinion of the 300 grain growers at this convention that a
change should be made in the Inland Empire from sacked grain to bulk grain, we urge the necessity
jf immediate action by the individual farmer and the interior warehouse companies, to provide the
necessary equipment to handle the 1916 crop in bulk. United action on the part of the farmers is
essential to the success of bulk handling of grain.

Rally at Tygh
The Industrial rally held at the
Southern WaBco County'' fair
grounds, near Tygh Valley, Fri
day the 12th was a charming and
successful affair. The smiles on
the faces of the immense crowds
of people estimated to be 1,500,
tM of the pleasant time they
were having. The day was ideal
for such an occasion. The gov
ernor's address, as well as others
was most interesting, and much
applause greeted each speaker,
Music wa3 furnished by the
Wapinitia band, patriotic songs
sung, warm hand shaking, ant
general good time was the orde
of the day. A. A. Bonney presi
dent of the Fair association, con;
ceived the idea of bringing the
people together, knowing that it
would be instrumental in inspir
ing them to the realization of
the value of procuring the ground
for a public park. These grounds
have been offered at a low figure
bv the present owner, W. H
McAfee, for public use.
The regular letter from Criter
ion is very much missed, and we
would suggest that since' the cor
respondent for the past year is
preparing to go away, that some
one els-e tuke up the work.

Base Ball Notes
Maupin Babe3 (second team)
will plav Tygh next Sunday on
the local diamond, and a return
game at Tygh Valley a ,week
from that date. These boys are
not as inexperienced in the base
ball business at least as the team
name might infer, and will show
you a good game. They were
scheduled to play the Wapinitia
Pick-Ups last Sunday at that
place, but upon their arrival the.
opponents would not play.
The game between the locals
and Moro Sunday on the home
diamond was a victory of 2 to 11
for the visitors. Maupin had too
much dance the night before.
Maupin will go to Gateway
Sunday by auto. An attempt
was made by Manager L. D.
Kelly to charter a train for the
occasion, and take Maupin in
full colors to the fray, hut &9
a satisfactory agreement pfluld
not be reached, was abandoned
for this time.
Dufur will play Maupin the
28th at this place.
