After lunch the assemblage
was called to order by Supenn
tendent Stuart, who extended a
word of welcome and explained
the object ot the company in call
ing these annual meetings. It
was to make the patrons ae
quainted with each other and to
show them just w hat the com
pany was doing on its part in
building up the business. They
were all interested alike in this
matter, and all wanted to secure
best possible results for their ef
Senator Haines was then intro
duced, who, as a business man of
the town, extended a welcome to
the patrons of the condenser.
He told of the growth of the lit
tle city since the factory was lo
cated here, nearly doubling in
five years. It has also "been of
great benefit to the farming com
munity. In former times the
farmer harvested his crop and
received his pay once a year, but
now he receives his pay twelve
times a year. Then the mer
chant had to carry the account
until the grain crop was sold, but
now the fanner has his cash in
his pocket and pays cash as he
President Ferrin of Pacific Un
iversity also gave a word of wel
come. He was glad to see here
the men and women who were
producing the wealth of the coun
try. lever were the whole peo
ple so prosperous as now, and the
wealth of the nation came from
the ground the farms, the mines
ind the forests. In liKKJ. $110.-
(XX), OIK) worth of gold was mined
this country, but the farms
kale was a valuable cow fee
and he refused to believe that it
would produce 50 tons per acre.
Mr. Bailey told of dairying in
Holland, where each acre of land
was supporting an average of 3
1-3 cows. He declared that the
Willamette valley would do as
well. He also indorsed milking
machines as a success, and told
what he had seen them doing in
dairies in this state.
C. A. Malboef, general freight
agent of the Southern Pacific,
gave some interesting figures on
the effect of the dairy on the
freights on their line. The two
milk condensers in Washington
county, one at Forest Grove, the
other at Hillsboro, furnish more
cars of milk to ship in a year
than there are cars of wheat
shipped along their entire West
Side line from Portland to Cor
vallis. In 1900 their freight re-

W. H. Lyua'i sawmill, one of thP
best-equipped plants in the state,
ocated four rmies northeast of
here, was completely destroyed
by fire Sunday night it was
valued at about $10,000, with
$.5000 insurance. There was no
fire in the mill yesterday during
the day, and tne hre did not
start until about 10 o'clock in the
night, so the owner is certain
that the mill was set on fire.
This is the third sawmill Mr. Ly-
da has lost by fire the past eight
years. Three years ago, at the
site where the mill burned last
night, he lost mill nearly as
valuable, and about eight years
ago on dales treeK, n miiea
northwest of here, he had an
other one destroyed, together
with a large amount of lumber,
neither of which were insured.
Frank Rolston, the engineer at
the mill, savs he burned the fir
all out and wet down around the
boiler and engine-room Saturday
night and left no fire there. No
lumber was destroyed.

Byron Hunter, from the Agri
cultural college at Corvallis talk
ed on results of their observa
tions in producing dairy feeds.
He believed kale to be the best
green feed. If planted early it
would lie ready to commence on
by the last of August, and would
continue good until next April,
lie recommended planting in
long narrow strips next to drive
ways, so it could be loaded on
wagons or sleds without driving
over ground in wet weather.
Rye and vetch sowed in Septem
ber would make good feed the
following summer, after kale was
gone. He also urged farmers to
get the bulletins of the State and
and National Agricultural De
partments, which were free, and
contained the results of the stu
dies of experts on the various
A. D. Barber, vice-president of
the company, talked at length of
their plans nnd wishes. He said
the company and its patrons were
partners, and he wanted them to
understmd fully what they were
doing. The company wanted to
make money, but it realized that
it could do it best by helping the
patrons to make money. Then
they would furnish more milk,
and that was what the company
needed to build up its business.
The company had recommended
breeding up the dairy herds and
is aiding it by helping to get bet-
New Mineral Found in Alaska.
A recent discovery 125 miles
below Iiampart on the Yukon has
aroused intense interest in the
North, James Langford. a Ram
part pioneer, has found a vein of
mineral of the consistency of
chalk and of an indigo blue in
color. It can be used as ordinary
chalk. None of the Alaskan
minerologists can identify it and
it is being sent to Seattle for

bably a dozen unidentified sjieci
mens of minerals and one of the
many benefits to Alaska and Yu
kon of the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific
Exposition, which will be held at
Seattle in 1901), will be the assem
bling and classifying of these
now unknown specimens. In
many cases the owners of the
veins of unidentified minerals be
lieve that they stand a chance of
winning great wealth as their
find may lie some hitherto undis
covered combination. As origin
al research work will go on at
the time the exposition is in pro

savants in charge of this branch
will be the identifying of these
unknown elements or combina
tions, and the adapting of them
to some commercial purpose.
James J. Hill Discouraged.
That railroad building in the
United States has reached its
maximum under existing condi
tions, and that business is grow
ing five times as fast as the mile
age, is the latest pessimistic view
announced by President Hill of
the Great Northern. He says
further that there is no money to

Ruel Bisbee, a prominent young
farmer living a few miles north
west of town, suffered the loss of
an arm that was cut off just be
low the elbow by a steam wood-
saw last week Saturday. The
cut was so complete that the arm
fell to the ground. He was a
son of Martin Bisbee, a large
farmer near here, and was aged
3D years. He was bom in Page
county, la., and had lived here
over 20 years. He was a graduate
of Pacific University, with the
degree B. S., in the class of 1896.

24 years, was instantly killed last
Monday afternoon by an explo-
oiuu ui uynamiie, wime woiKmg
for the Pacific Coast Construction
Co., about one-half mile south
east of Beaverton. He with a
number of others were blasting
out stumps with dynamite, when
one stick failed to explode. Mar
tin insisted on going to learn
what the trouble was, though re
peatedly told not to do so. Just
as he was looking at the spot
where the dynamite was placed,
a terrible explosion occurred and
the unfortunate man was killed
Coroner Brown was summoned
and he went to the scene of the
accident and after learning all
the circumstances, decided that
an inquest was unnecessary.
Martin claimed he was born in
London, Eng., and had no friends
or relatives in this country. He
left absolutely nothing in the
shape of papers or valuables.
The body was taken in charge by
the Pacific Coast Construction
Co., and was buried in Portland
at their expense.
