WHAT THE SUGAR' BEET MEANS
What the Sugar Beet Means to
the Parmer is the title of an 'inter
' eating article published In a late
number of Freeman's Farmer, from
the pen of N. J. Butt. Mr. Butt tells
anew the story of what , the crop
means to . the farmer, which is of
coarse the real substance of the beet
question. And he also tells of the
Influence of the industry upon the
community at large. The following
. are some of the observations wntch
Mr. Butt makes upon this phase of
beet crowing and sugar making:
. "The introduction or the sugar fac
tory and ' sugar heet culture has
proved a Godsend to the people al
most ererywhere It has heen acconip-;
lished. Because of the tremendous
amount of transportation necessary;
to place the beets at the factory, as
well as to- furnish coal, limestone,
and other supplies needed in the
manufacture of sugar, the country!
must have good roas." Inducing
better railroad service because of the
sugar beet' industry has helped to
simplify difficult marketing situations

In (act, the decree of unlimited and

LANE AND THE FILIBUSTER
The Oregon Voter publishes a pen
picture of the doten senators who
held the United States by the throat
through the filibuster last week, and
our own Harry Lane is done so well
by the versatile Chapman that his
tribute to the Portland doctor is pub
lished below:
"Harry aw of Oregon. Alas
poor Harry; we knew him well. He
never had any big conception of
public duty. His 'brain in public
natters always was a muddle a
sort of comic valentine. Yet, the
people of Oregon, knowing him
well, elected him. And we who know
him well know that he did his best.
poor as that was. . He thought he
was doing right. One of the best
evidences that the country Is right
in its judgment of the filibuster is
that Dr. Lane was involved, tor If
there ever was a wrong side, his un
erring instinct would find It. But
we who know him cannot brand him
traitor, and we know he is no cow

"One of the greatest inducements
offered the sugar beet 'grower is the
fact that cash is paid for thecrop.

cash returns with a certain market
allow the farmer to spend more of
his time at the producing side of
farming which he understands better
than the complicated market systems.
Planning is assisted by any certainty
in the plan and the Intelligent grow
ing of beets gives an almost certain
source of Income regardless of fluc
tuation in markets. The great In

after the beet harvest and sugar fac
tory run stimulates trade throughout

GER-
ARE WEi.'AT WAR WITH

MANY?
What constitutes a condition of
war is now a thought uppermost In
many minds. Certainly no declara
tion of war Is needed to define war
if people of two nations are shoot
ing at one another. If those selfsame
people take guns and swords and an
nounce their Intention of shooting
on sight, It would appear to the man
.up a tree that the condition was one
of war. And that is just where
Uncle Sam finds hlmseir today. : The
German nation has stated Its inten
tion of sinking every ship, of what
ever nationality, that sailed certain
seal of the world that are supposed
to 'be open to all nations. The United
States re f lines to be bluffed from the

Washington, Mar. 10. On the
ground that the United States will
lose its North Pacific and its north
Atlantic shipping industry, the fed
eral shipping "board will make a
strong fisht to have the Chamber
lain fresh or frozen fish importation
measure pushed throiiRh the coming
extra session.
Chamberlain made a sensational
fight last summer for his bill provid
ing that no fresh or frozen fish shall
be imported into the United States
except those coming In through Am
erican ports and excepting those en
tering ports of another country In
bond and coming thence Into the
United States under the same bond
ing. Chamberlain charged Canada and
Great Britain with flagrant attempts
to stifle America's fishing industry.
He made other serious charges re
garding price fixing.
Means to save the American fish
ing fleet to American registry were
discussed today In a conference be-

P.rent of the Tedeial shipping board

'.f the bureau of fisheries.
American fishermen have com
plained to the shipping board that
they cannot purchase bait or sup
plies In a Canadian port unless they
agree to sell their catches in that
same port. This has resulted In
Canadian regulation of salmon and

Washington. Man.. 10. Acting
Secretary or the Treasury Xewton to
day denied Spokane authorities per
mission to hang Edward Maybury, an
Indian, condemned to die on March
20 on the roof of the federal build
