Oregon wool growers are howl
ing about the tariff, because they
are told that it is solely respon
sible for the low wool price this
year. Who tells them that? The
buyers do. Wouldn't you, if you
were a buyer?
"it's the best we can do for
you; the tariff is killing the busi
ness; foreign wool will come in
and knock the stuffing out of our
American prices" that's about
what the buyers say. Of course.
But suppose the isolated, un
organized growers happened to
find out that wool in Australia
and other foreign markets gets,
right at home, several cents a
pound more than the prevailing
American prices, do you suppose
they might wake up to the fact
that perhaps they are being
gloriously bilked by the long-
The following news item from
the Portland Live Stock Reporter
will be of great interest to the
stock growers of this county and
would indicate there is a move to
make a really effective organiza
tion of that industry that will be
of much benefit to those inter
ested. It says:
"M. R. Yates, of Pendleton,
Oregon, one of the executive
committee of the Cattle and
Horse Raisers' Association of
Oregon, will start about June 25
on a tour of the counties of Uma
tilla, Grant, Harney and Malheur
later taking up Union, Wallowa,
Morrow, Wheeler and Crook
counties, in the interest of the
association and also for the pur
pose of securing members. The
association was formed at Baker
on May 14 with nearly 100 mem
bers and expects to swell it to at
least 1000 within the next 60
In commenting editorially upon
the above proposition the Blue
Mt. Eagle of Canyon City says:
There is an effort on foot to
organize the cattlemen of eastern
Oregon. The organization is to
include Grant County. One ob
ject of the organization is to pro
vide inspectors for the several
shipping points and to also have
one at the stockyards in Portland.
The insnector is to keep a record
of all the marks and brands of
cattle shipped. This plan com
mends itself. It is good. It will
save the cattlemen of eastern
Oregon a great deal which is now
being lost to them. Another ob
ject of the organization is to offer
a reward of $1000 for the arrest
and conviction of any one for the
crime of larceny of stock.
This is a mistake and will result
in the disintegration of the or
ganization. The amount is too
large and will lead to trouble,
the territory is large and in a
year there may be 25 convictions,
Grant County stockmen have had
some experience with large re
wards and it is safe to say that
they would oppose it as a unit
In no case should the reward ex
ceed $260, and experience teaches
that just as good results will flow
from a reward of $100. A re
ward of $100 is enough. Big re
wards are dangerous.
We regret that he could not
have spent more time in the Har
ney Valley. He is conversant
with conditions and if he had
been able to visit the different
communities he could, probably
better than any other person,
have explained the importance
and far reaching effects of the
water adjudication and outlined
the manner in which the situa
tion should be handled. In the
brief time available he met a
number of persons interested and
made some valuable suggestions.
He explained that the duties of
the Water Board were in effect
largely judicial: and all they
could do would be pass upon the
matter as finally presented to
them. That all important facts
and conditions pertaining to the
water question should be thor
oughly understood and put in
proper shape to be submitted,
backed up by sufficient and com

Harney County Real
Estate Good Investment
A sale recently closed or a
section of land adjoining the Ex
periment Farm Indicates the rapid
advancement of the price of land
in this county. The owneis,
Messrs. Gault, Leonard and
Mothershead sold the section to
P. S. Weittenhlllerforjustdouble
what they paid for it three years
ago. This is indicative of how
the land of the entire valley Is
advancing. When the big plow
gets to turning over the soil on
this place for Mr. Weittenhiller
and he really sees what he has it
will again increase in value.
It is a healthy indication when
men who have faith in the coun
try get busy and show what
Harney Valley soil is good for.
The crops of the past few yean-
even on land that has no water
for irrigation -is certainly en
couraging. The experiments have
demonstrated that proper tillage
is all that is required to make it
produce profitably. The rains of
the present week is another en
couraging feature toward the
rapid development of the country
and has induced men to invest
that were hesitating.
