To look Into the beet-sugar situa
tion In southern Oregon, Henry VY
Campbell, of Lincoln. Neb., aud San
Francisco, eminent soil culturlat and
farm adviser of the Southern Paciflr
company, who has been visiting In
P.TitlaiHl. will go to Grunts Pass to
day, says the Journal. II. A. Illn-
shaWj general freight agent of th
Southern Pacific, will accompany
Mr. Campbell is known as "the
father of dry farming." although he
says dry farming is a misnomer.
What It really Is, he declares, la till
age farming.
Through his exiierlmeuts and teach
ings, great sections of western Ne
braska and eastern Colorado, oner
thought incapable of producing any
thing, are now yielding record crops.
Before he showed the farmers ol
Colorado the "Campbell way," but
eight or nine tons to an acre , of
sugar beets waa the beat they could
do. By use of his better fsrmlng
methods the average nowadays Is SO
tons, and a record acre has yielded
41 tons. And so the Southern Pacific
has asked him to look luto the beet
sugar country of Oregon, that Jie may
give the farmers of that section help
and advice.
Mr. Campbell began studying the
scientific, tilling of the soil in ISXS
In Itakota territory, after the 'allure
of the wheat crop In that section.
His studies convinced him that the
failure was not due to lack of rain
fall, as was commonly supposed, hut
to lack of proper tillage. Mr. Camp
bell kept on studying and studying
until In 1N93 he raised 14 bushels
of potatoes to the acre when neigh
bors raised almost nothing.
"Call it Ullage, if you will," said
Mr. Campbell, Saturday, "but I call
It better farming, for that it what It
Is. It applies whether you have In
sufficient rainfall or Irrigation. 1
have made It a fad perhaps you
would call me a 'bug' but I am
learning something every day."
.Mi. Campbell ha been traveling
agriculturist for the Chicago, Bur
lington k Qulncy railway until re
cently. He is the author of a num
ber of hotik on soil culture.
London. Mur. 19. Premier Lloyd-
George Indicated In un announcement
In the house of commons today that
on Thursday he would move that
the British government extend con
gratulations to the Russian duma for
its establishment of a new govern
ment. He characterized the Russian revo
lution as "one of the landmarks 1n
the history of the world."
The prime minister, however, said
that Information does not Indicate
C:at all dangers In Russia are panned,
"There lias been deep dlsconten in
Russia," Lloyd-iicoiite said, "due to
inefficiency in condu.'tlng the war. I
am confident I hut Russian events,
which lire first a triumph of the prin
ciples for v.lil it we entered llie war,
will not result In confusion or in a
slackening of the conduct of the 'war,
lint on the other hand will in a In-
closer and more effective the co-op
eration of the Russians with the al
lies In the cause of human freedom."
Momliers cheered when the premier
declared that the Russian soldiers had
refused to obey orders of the im
perial official to shoot down food
rioters. Cheers from the Irish na
tionalists greeted his statement thnt
the Russian people "would find lib
erty compatible with order, even In
revolutionary times, and that a free
people were the best defenders of
their own honor."
Ban Francisco, Mar. 19. All
freight embargoes announced by the
Southern Pacific railroad when a
general railroad strike seemed Immi
nent, were lifted today.
(I. W. Luce, freight traffic, mana
ger, sent the following telegram to
the rosd's representative:
"Effective at once, cancel all In
structions account of strike and re
sume acceptances of dead freight,
perishables, livestock and explosives
without restriction."
