A campaign started by the company
for the growth of the fruit-canning
industry in this state promises to
bring about the best results. Under
the direction of Charles Malboeuf,
district freight agent for the Oregon
lines, a great industry in the can
ning of small fruits will be built up
in Western Oregou. It is Mr. Mal
boeuf 's plan to make this industry
as important in Oregou as fruit-
I growing and preserving in Califor
nia. This can easily be done, he
says, by encouraging the marketing
of green fruit and the increase of
canneries in this state.
Mr. Malboeuf has attended a
number of meetings of fruitgrowers
in various parts of the Willamette
vallef, and his project has been fav
ored. He has promised very favor-

canneries to the market. Generous
reductions have been made in the
tariffs for the benefit of the fruit
grower and canner, and during the
coming year there will be large
tracts throughout the valley planted
to small fruits.

largely with the view of marketing
the truit in Portland.
"The very large yield this sum
mer exceeded the most sanguine
expectations, and the Portland mar
ket wasoversupplii-d. Nearly iooo
tons of cherries aloue were shipped
from the Willamette valley to the
Puget Sound canneries, as the
Western Oregon canneries could
not handle the crop.
KNCOI RACK SMALL FARMING.
"Realizing the conditions, and
with the desire to encourage an in
dustry so well suited to the climate
in Western Oregon, the Southern
Pacific company is fostering in every
way the cultivation of small fruits
and the establishment of canning
establishments. The result will be
a more extensive cultivation and
the dividing up of large farms into
smaller tracts. Many of the can
neries that will be established will
be built and operated on the co op
erative plau. It is the intention of
the Southern Pacific to aid in every
way the introduction of the best
varieties of small fruits, and to as
sist their cultivation bv scientific
This work is bringing results.
A number of canning establish
ments will be erected within a short
time. At present there are two
fruit canneries at Portland, and
others at Salem, Springbrook, Eu-
state, outside of Portland, during
1906, was less than 50 carloads,
This year the output is larger and
by next year there should be nearly
100 carloads for shipment to the
Eastern markets. Within the next
five years, shipments of tinned fruits
from Western Oregon should
amount to 1000 cars a year.
CONTRAST IS STRIKING.
"There is quite a contrast with
California on the fruit output. Cal
ifornia ships 60,000 cars a year of
fruit products, exclusive of wines,
Of this amount, 35,000 cars are or
anges and lemons, 10,000 cars dried
fruits, 8000 cars green fruits and
about 6000 cars canned fruits.
large part of the fruit raised in Cal
ifornia is grown with the aid of irri
gation. In the Willamette valley
there is no need for irrigation. The
best cherries in the world are grown
here with scarcely any attention
Berries raised here without lrriga
tion are equal to any grown in any
part of the country. I am informed
on the best authority that the Cali
fornia fruitgtower realizes much
more profit from his canned fruits
than from that he dries.
"The output of green and dried
fruit in the territory served by the
Oregon lines of the Southern Pacific
does not exceed 1000 cars a year,
With the promotion of the canning
industry and the raising of large
amounts of small fruits, this figure
will be much increased."
.Mr. Malbocut savs the canning
industry should equal the creamery
business in this state, and he is sat
isfied it will do so within the next
lew years. How great the cream
ery iudustry is in Oregon is gener
ally known. It is interesting to
know that Mr. Malboeuf has much
to do with turning the attention of
Oregonians to the possibilities of
the creamery business in Oregon,
and he secured the location in this
state of the largest milk and cream
condenser now operating in Oregon.
The campaign just begun by 'the
Southern Pacific will be carried on
energetically throughout the year,
and it is hoped to have many more
canneries in operation by next Sum
mer. Morning Oregonian.

The Atchison, Topeka & Santa
Fe railroad has rone into tree grow
mg in order to provide for its fu
ture supply of cross ties. The
Santa Fe has adopted the eucalyp
tus as the most suitable species .for
tie purposes, because of its rapid
growth, great density and durabili
ty, and is now planting 700 acres in
a ranch of 9,000 acres in Southern
California to eucalyptus seedlings,
with the iutention of repeating in
this amount of acreage each suc
ceeding year for a total of twelve
years or moie, when it will have
planted several acres. The seed
lings which are sprouted in boxes
to the number of 100 to the box,
and stored in "lath houses" until
they are three or four inches high,
at which time they are three or four
months old- are set out in rows
eight leet apart, at a distance in the
rows from each other of five feet.
Their cultivation after that for three
or four years is thorough, but sim
ple enough, and includes their wat
ering two or three times a year.
Thereafter the plants are expected
to take care of themselves, although
in the course of time, they require
thinning out, which is accomplish
ed by cutting out every other one,
so that they stand ten leet apart in
the rows. The young saplings
thus removed maVe excellent fence
posts, and hence no loss befalls
through their taking away. The
remaining young trees, numbering
about 550 to the acre, will, at the
end of fifteen years of growth, each
yield six ties, it is calculated, or
some 3.300 ties pr acre. These
ties will le cut from 700 acres of
the big orchard each year, after fif
teen years from the first planting,
with the result of obtaining more
than 2,250,000 ties per annum;
and, seeing that the rate of remov
al will be exactly eual to the rate
of planting, the same total acreage
will, theoretically at least, maintain
the same annual supply of ties to
the end of time'. The cost per cul
tivated tie is far and away below
that of ties of the best quality, such
as white oak, now bought on the
The loyal friends of the Oregon
State Normal school at Monmouth
have come to the rescue of the in
stitution and have met the condi
tions imposed by the new loard of
regents. Messrs. Ressler and Per
kins apjwared before the executive
committee in Salem last week and
tendered a check for $3,000 as a
donation to conduct the school the
ensuing year. This is one half ot
the required amount aud the board
has allowed until the 1st of Febru
ary for the deposit of the balance.
Other revenues irom tuition aud lo
cal taxation (including 7 mills spe
cial tax) will add between eight and
nine thousand dollars. The bud
get for the year has been reduced
from nineteen to fourteen thousand
dollars by cutting down the salar
ies of the instructors, with their full
consent, an act of devotion which
shows their loyalty and devotion to
the old school.
It will be remembered that the
old board of regents, at its annual
meeting in June re-elected the fac
ulty, let contracts for fuel, etc., and
otherwise provided for the contiun
ance of the Monmouth Normal.
The new board, at its meeting July
18, accepted the action of the old
board and assumed lull control.
At a later meeting, August 20, it
rescinded its former action on the
ground that the law prohibited the
atntnntion of anv obligations In

Since the appropriation, vetoed by

available until passed upon by the
next legislature, the loard decided
that no account could be taken of
This caused the board to vote
not to continue the school until a
sufficient sum was deposited as an
absolute donation, which, together
with the other fixed revenues,
would place enough funds at its dis
posal to guarantee the expenses of
the institution for the entire year.
Now that this has leen done and
the donation accepted by the exe
cutive committee. Monmouth is of

will therefore open its doors on Sep
