At two p. m. the band again ap
peared and called the assemblage
together at the Orand Theatre,
where a short program of band
music, and a solo by Mrs. T. H.
Mehl were rendered, followed by
the address of welcome by G. I\
Treadgold. The members of the
order then adjourned to the new
hall where the business session was
held, at which time many things of
importance were looked after, the

The steamer Newport landed at

trip to this city since going on her
regular run between here and Port
land. She is in command of Capt.
Parsons, formerly o f the Alliance.
The Newport carries only freight,
and will make a round trip every
eight or ten days. She will call at
Coos Bay each down trip, leaving
what freight she may have for that
place, and it is expected she will
make calls at Tillamook when the
occasion requires. On this trip she
carried a large load of freight, and

comes unprofitable to feed stock of
this kind after they arrive at a cer
tain stage of maturity, snd more so
when prices of feed are so high.
If conditions could be brought about
that would depress prices just when
this lot of stock gets ready to come
on the market, it would mean mil
lions of dollars to the meat trust.
A meat boycott would be a nice
way of starting an agitation that
would fuinisb an excuse for lower
ing the price on cattle, hogs, etc.
To help increase the tensity of the
situation : nd scare the farmers to
market their stuff, it would be very
appropriate to announce that the
meat trust bad meats enough for a
six or ten months’ supply on hand.
Such statements as these naturally
startle the farmers, because they
are Dot used to studying their buei.

Kentucky are used to that kind of
dope. They have been told time
and again that the tobacco trust had
tobacco enough to carry it from
three to seven years, and that the
farmers had better sell their tobacco
or go broke waiting for a market.
We don’t mean to say that that
fellow down in the factory who is
credited with starling the boycott
was williDgly or even knowingly the
tool of the meat trust in so doing.

working in their interest who are
innocent as to the results of their
effort than is generally known.—
