POULTRY RAISING IN OREGON.
Extracts From Oregon Experiment
Tho climate of Oregon from a potn
try nun's standpoint Is discussed by
Jams Dryden In Bulletin No. 00 of Uie
Oregon Kxper.ment station which la
recently been published. Among other
Uilng the writer ssyi:
It I of courts worth considering b
the man looking for a location whether
Wetlern Oregcn with It open winter
and freedom from snow and xero tem
peratures does not offer opportunities
tor the production of egg and poultry
that are not found in Eastern and Mid
dle West states. That poultry thrive In
cold sections whore snow and zero
weather prevail is not to be denied,
but the labor and expense or caring lor
Uiem Is undoubtedly greater there. To
secure an egg yield In winter where the
climate I severe entails more expense
for housing and more care In the feed
ing. It Is probably true that Jhsimal
iest profits mo mode dnrlng the winter
months though the prices are very
much hlghtr than in spring and sum
mer, because Uia egg yield is so small
from the average fl(ck as to leave little
or no margin of profit. It is alto true
that the egg yield Is qalckly anected by
changes in Uio weaUier, ttpectally In
the temperature. A sadden cbange
from mild to cold weather means a
certain check In the egg production,
and although the weather soon moder
ates It will often take several week
before tho egg yield gets back to where
It was. The only way to prevent this
Is to provido housing that will protect
the fowls from too sudden change In
temperature. Tbls entails more ex
pense In bousing and consequently ui
mlnlthcd profits, but what la of more
Importance la the highly artificial con
ditions that It necessitate.
It would appear therefore that there
are certain advantage that this stats
possesses over rectlons of the country
where xero weather and snow prevail.
First, a milder climate and less severe
changes In temperature than Is charac
ter it c of Kattcrn states, beconu, in
acctloDS of the state with no snowfall
the poultry can range over tho fields
and And snimsl food and green food
which aro often hard to get wnere th
snow covers Uie ground.
The heavy rainfall of Western Oregou
and small percentage ot sunshine may
be set down as a disadvantage, bat
when the nature oi tho rainfall is nn
dorttood it is doubtful whether It la
very mrch of a detriment. Owing to
the moderating influence of the Pacific
ocean these rains are warm and have
not the chilling effect of the rains In
KsU;tn etatcs. The temperature of
Western Oregon In the winter months
Is usually higher when it rains than
when th sky is doodle, and Uie
fowls will usually be found out in Uie
rain except when It Is very heavy,
which is n't often the case. One pool
tryman In Marion county said to Uio
writer In November, before the rainy
season set In, that he wished it would
rain, became, hs said, his hens laid
better when It rained. Tho explana
tion ot this, if It Is true, may not be
in the rain ittelf, but In the fact that
It brings to the surface many angle
worms, which supply Uie lack ot ani
mal food in the ration.
Turkeys are successfully raited In
Sflregon, and turkey are known to be
easily affected by rain, but the tact
that the rains are warm no doubt
largely account for the success In tur
key raising In this state. Dooglas
county in Oregon produces several
times more turkeys than the state of
Ithode Island, noted for turkeys.
Another thing in favor ot the mild
climate and freedom from snow Is that
the fowls are able to secure practically
the year round all the green food neces
sary in the fields. And finally, Uie
fowls in their setroh for food in the
fields get the cierclm which lo neces
sary for It is worthy ot mention in this
connection that the largest special
poultry district in Uie United State Is
found in Northern California, that haa
no snowfall. That district Is somewhat
similar to that ot Western Oregon, with
its open winters, mild and humid ell-
uiate and nearness to the ocean.
My Investigations ot the poultry In
dustry of Oregon have been confined to
the western part of the atate, the region
westot the Cascade mountains. This
section at the present time produces
uior J' poultry products than the larger
area ot the state east ot the Cascades.
As the sgrlculture ot Central and Katt
ern Oregon becomes developed we may
expect greater development of poultry
keeping, and probably In time that
great agricultural area may produce
moro poultry products than the older
tecticn ot the ttate In Western Oregon.
The climatic conditions sr different
east ol the mountains, the heavy rain
fall Is absent and snow covers the
ground dtirinn part of the winter The
nlimsto thero Is more characteristic of
tho Rocky mountain region, though no
such eevorc weather prevails as lu the
Mlddlo and Northwestern states. It it
should prove that a dry climate with
plenty ot sunshlue but laoklng the se
vere winter changes of temperature ol
tha East la the Ideal one for proultry,
we may expect a great growth ol the
poultry Industry cart ot the Cascades
In Oregon. Undoubtedly on the grain
ranohos of Central and Eastern Oiegon
whero food Is cheap there Is opportun
ity for great profit In poultry raising.

Must Not Interfere With Interstate
Commerce or Plaintiff" Can Qet
Three Tims Damage s.
Washington, Feb. 4. Yesterdsy for
the third time within a month tho Su
preme court of the United State pro.
mulgated an opinion .construing laws
sdversely lo tho contentions of organised
labor. The first of tho decisions wss
rendered on January 6, In the case of
some railway employes who sought to
secure damages under what is known
as the employers' liability act, which
lav- the court held to be unconstitu
tional. The second Important finding;
in thli line waa announced January 23,
when the Erdman arbitration act, for.
bidding the discharge of employee be
cause tbey are members ot labor unlona
was also declared invalid. The verdict
rendered yesterday wss the case of
lyoewe versus Lawlor, the latter a
member of the Hatters' union and the
former a hatmsker of Danbary, Conn.
Tho case involved the applicability ol
Uie seventh section ot the Sherman
anti-trust law to conspiracies by labor
unions to boycott articles entering into
interstate trade. Under tho terms of
that provision the complaining party
may collect three times the amount of
his loss, if the charge is sustained.
The nnlon fought Uio case on the
ground that the law was Inapplicable
to such organisations; bat tbu court,
whose opinion was announced by Chief
Justice Fuller, failed to accept th la
view, and in effect held that Uie unlona
could not be permitted to Interfere by
boycott with the tree exchange ot com
merce between the states. There waa
no ditsentlng opinion.
