It is a concern to the Journal
to get Oregonians to comprehend

quate conception of the state's
real worth, the foundation wil
be laid for a state of growth.
We live in the midst of jiossibili-
ties of which we have little rea
ization. The proof is recorded in
letters of fire in the statement
that already eight carloads of
strawberries have been
imported into the state. That
importation by a state that can
grow the best strawberries in the
world, is another case of the
ship's crew iierishing from thirst
on the bosom of the Amazon riv
er. Why didn t we grow and
pack those berries at home, keep

Of the fruits we shipped, 400,

tion that a section so fertile in

advertising for the state! Why
was it so? California exported

fruits. Oregon exported 50 cars.
California cherries this season
brought the growers 7 to 9 cents I
a pound. Uregon cherries
brought 6. The logic of the fig-
urea cannot be understood. Cal-
ifornians know and utilize the
possibilities of their state:, Ore
gonians do not comprehend Ore
gon. In producing small fruits,
the immense region west of the
Cascade range and extending
from the California to the ash
ington line, is an Eden. The soil
with each returning season gives
up its magnificient fruitage, but
man fails to save, market and
profit. What a real ray of en
couragement is the plan of the
Southern Pacific by low rates and
otherwise, to foster and encour
age canneries for packing Oregon
fruits in Oregon, and marketing
them as Oregon products! How
proniising a field when expert
testimony is that Oregon cherries
can be profitably packed at 8
cents to the grower, while Ore

We fully endorse the above
from the Journal, and add that
what is true of the fruit industry
applies to several others. In
stead of importing eggs, butter
and meats, we should be export
ing these products ' along with
thousands of cars of fruits an
nually. What we do with hops
we can do with every other pro
duct of the state. No section of
the West is better adapted to
fruit raising than the Willamette
valley, and instead of imported
fruits occupying the merchants'
shelves, our own product, the
best that is grown, should take
their place and the surplus find
its way to greedy markets that
are always ready to pay good
price for the best. The Oregon

the "roasting" he received, but
walked away with the ham.
Birds and Insects.
It is much easier to destroy
birds than insects, but as the
number of birds is reduced the
insects multiply. The wren is a
very useful bird, and may be in
duced to remain near the dwell
ing houses if boxes are provided
for thorn, but, as they are unable
to contend against English spar-
iuws, ine entrance to tne wren
boxes should not exceed an inch
in diameter, as the wren is very
small and can only protect itself
by going where the sparrow can
not follow. Every encourage
ment should be given birds by
feeding them and providing them
suitable places for their protec
tion and accomodation.

ever occured in Baker County
was committed in Baker City last
night when ex-Sheriff Harvey K.
Brown was blown up by a bomb
as he entered his gate. The deed
was committed about 10:30 P.M.,
as Mr. Brown was returning
from down town, where he had
been on business.
The explosion could be heard
all over town, and was so jiower
ful thot it tore away the gate, a
large gate iost and a large amount
of the fence. The window panes
in the house, which is about 15
feet from the gate, were all brok
en by the explosion, as were
those in houses 50 feet away.
Mr. Brown was found lying in
the yard a few feet from the gate,
with hjs left limb completely
blown away, his right limb bably
shattered and his hips and groin
badly punctured and shattered.
The force of the explosion
seemeu to nave stsuck mm be
tween the waist and h'is knees.
as the unner part of his btxlv was
uninjured and his legs below the
knees showed no signs of injury
The bone of his left limb from
the knee almost to his hip joint1
was completely taken away, and
after the accident before the am
bulance arrived to take him to
St. Elizabeth Hospital.
He relapsed into an unconscious
condition a few minutes after the
crime had Itoen committed, and
ditl not regain consciousness un
til late this morning. He is una
ble to hear, and has very little to
say concerning the crime until he
can make his statement to the
District Attorney. He has ex
pressed his opinion, however,
as to the identity of the persons
who set oir the bomb.
That the crime was not com
mitted by any one in Baker City,
is the opinion of those who know
of his life in this city. Brown
was formerly sheriff of Baker
county, and while in this office
was very bitter against the saloon
men and the gamblers, enforcing
the law very rigidly against them.
Some ieople think they are back
of the plot, but there is no plaus
ible reason to get rid of him now,
as he has done nothing to incur
their hatred since he left office,
more than a year ago.
Harvey Brown knew that he
was a doomed man and that his
life was in danger at all times.
He is the man who arrested Steve
Adams for his crimes in Idaho,
and for the past six months has
been engaged by the state of Id
aho in doing detective work. He
was a witness in the case of Ida
ho against Steve Adams, and ex
pressed to some friends his fear
of taking the stand, for he said
that he well knew he would nev
er escape alive if he did.
t rom what he has said to inti
mate friends in this city, it is
plain to be seen that his know
ledge of Steve Adams' crimes
was such that Adams and his as
sociates would have the greatest
desire to have him out of the
