Tho post nlortom experts who nro
discussing tho deeds nnd mlBdoeds of
tho legislature complain because con
sideration of bills was loft until tho
last day. But thoy seem to forgot
that thoro has to bo a last day. Tholr
contention resembles that of tho man
who recommended that ronr-end col
lisions on railroads could bo averted
if trains never carry n rear car.
Tho Bulletin has been asked to re

ON THE HOO.
Every farmer who sees this paper
Is urged to read the article by Profes
sor Potter on hog raising In Central
Oregon. If tho lesson of that article
Is learned the county will bo repaid
many times for tho cost of tho ex
tension work It has agreed to sharo
this year. None of the expenditures
authorized by the count court will
bring mora than that for tho agricul
turist, which It provided so reluc
tantly. Ever slnco tho slaughter of swine
which followed tho Increase In tho
price of wheat began stock experts
have been pointing out that Oregon
would shortly find herself whero she
was a few years ago Importing hogs
from Nebraska with tho slow up-hill
gains of the last four years all lost.
That will mean a flow of money out
of tho state and a return to a condi
tion believed to have been done away
with, all because our farmers havo
been caught with their eggs In ono
The aim of tho Nebraska farmers
is Bald to bo to raise moro corn, to
feed more pigs, to sell for money with
which to raise more corn to feed
moro pigs and so on. Here we have
not raised enough wheat for feed, wo
have depended on buying It and now
that wheat as go no up wo havo be
gun to MB our pigs. And because
everyono else is doing It the price of
pork Is way down. Soon though, tho
balance will go the othor way. Be
causo so many bogs have been killed
those remaining will Increase in price
untlLthey moro than reflect the cost
oflnewheat necessary to finish them
for the market.
Read Professor Potter's article.
Keep the few hogs you have left even
though it costs something to feed
them. You will be repaid In the end.
And nbove all for the coming year
plan so that your farm will be so far
cs posslblo Independent of the re
sults of war and the price of wheat.
After the prohibition bill goes Into
effect thoro will bo oven moro dry
farmers and water users. '

at least so far as tho prlco Is concerned.

If the late lamented legislature
was not notably excellent, certainly
it was far from being bad. In fact,
when we take Into account the unde
niable fact that the general condition
of the country, necessitating econ
omy, barred the way to constructive
projects, the legislative record ap
pears distinctly creditable.
As Governor Wlthycombe stated
whenlio signed the prohibition bill,
that 'xma piece of legislation alone,
, at least "from the majority standpoint
of the prohibitionists, was worth tbo
cost of the session. The ratification
of the lake lease was constructive
and greatly worth while The com
pensation law has been amended, the
election laws bettered. Real eocn
omy has been effected. Best of all,
perhaps, there has been no drastic
legislation, no freak laws; business
has been given a fair deal, and noth
ing blatantly contrary to tho public
Interest has been slipped through.
Even If Central Oregon did not get
its irrigation appropriation, we may
admit that the legislature did Us
best, uulcr the circumstances, and
that its record Is reasonauly satisfac
tory"." What Is probably the biggest piece
of constructive legislation at the
lpifi eesslou was the ratification of
the lease of Summer and Abert lakes.
At least, uppn that action hinged
what promises to bo Important de
velopment of this country. At the
1013 session the big constructive" bill'
was tho Tumalo act,. It Is . worth
noting that Vernon A. Forbes fram
ed both bills, and it Is due to his
hard work and abllltytbat each one
