Enjoy Day in Shade, Listen to Band
And General Pleasant Program
Everybody was there and tOSTS
sn't a thinar happened to mar
he Dleasure of the day at the
picnic last Sunday held at Crow
2amD. The day was ideal fcr
the occasion, quite warm, but the
shade and a little breeze made it
sible to be quite comfortable
under the trees.
There were between 400 and
i people assembled and it was
Dne continual round of pleasant
things from the time they arriv-
until late in the evening.
rhere were speeches, sinRinjr,
band music, Karnes, trap shoot.
In fact something doing all the
lime and the little ones had the
time of their lives wading in the
creek, eating ice cream, drinking
Bemonade, etc. Mr. Robins and
family were always ready to add
the pleasure and comfort of
their many guests and many ex
pressed their appreciation of the
enerous treatment accorded
Hon. Frank Davey was made
naster of ceremonies during the
forenoon and a short program of
ipeeches and music was given
Bust before the lunch hour. Some
Of the band boys had trouble
vith their cars on the road over
nd did not arrive until rather
ate. Finally they got together
nd this was followed by singing
nd several speeches. Among
hose who made talks were:
tnk Davey, who welcomed the
oole on behalf of Mr. Robins
rod family; Ben Cloer, of Harri-
oan. Mrs. Pearl Kisk, L R.
Jreithaupt. Supt. Hamilton, Mrs.
Vivian Gray, Theo. Forcier and
P. J. Gallagher. During this
period the ladies were spreading
the lunches under the trees and
even before the program was
finished many were devouring
fried chicken and other good
things, at the same time listening
to the talks.
The band boys were the main
attraction and most appreciated
of the whole entertainment and
i it is settled that every year the

It was too hot to get away from
the shade of the trees during the
early afternoon to start games.
so for a couple of hours there

many neighbors, H there were
people there from almost every
community in the entire country.
Tom Allen and wife coming over
from the P Ranch, were perhaps
the representatives of the section
farthest removed from Crow
Camp. This proved one of the
particularly interesting hours of
the day; town people had an op
portunity to visit with friends in
the country that they had not
seen for several months.
Finally it was anni unced that
the base hall game would begin
out in the meadow, and even
though there were many "fans"
the shade was so tempting that
many did not go out. The game
was between Crow Camp and
Ruins and there were but syc
innings played but they proved
interesting and" enjoyable. The
field was rather uneven, being
an alfalfa stubble but the boys
played a very good game, the
score being 12 to six in favor of
There were not many at the
traps and it proved rather slow
as only a hand trap was in use
and it was rather tedious work,
causing delay between shots.
The hills to the northeast made
the targets difficult for those not
accustomed to such a background
and the scores were low. A. K.
Richardson made the beet score,
22 out of 26, but Leland Fry, Roy
UouUen and Ludwig Johnson
were right close.
It was late before many of the
picnickers took their departure
and there were aiitos and rigs
lining the road for many miles in
all directions. Practically the
entire town of Burns was out and
autos and trucks were pressed
into service. Two trucks loaded
to capacity went out and every
auto had as many as could be
crowded in. Everyone who went
out expressed their pleasure ami
will go again next year.

Milling Company And
Packing Plant Meeting
At the annual meeting of the
stockholders of the Burns Flour
Milling Co. held last Monday
afternoon the old board of direc
tors were re-elected for the en
suing year. Almost tne entire
stock was represented at the
meeting. There was disappoint
ment when it was found Secy.
Huston had not had time to make
a complete report of the busineas
of the corporation for the past
year, but this he will have out at
once and mailed to each stock
holder. The packing plant has not yet
been completed, the machinery
now being installed, but it will
soon be in readiness for business
and the big expense in establish
ing the plant and equipping in a
modern way meets with approv
al. The affairs of the concern was
found to be on a sound basis with
assets far in excess to liabilities.
President Phil Smith of the
company and Manager Hansen
of the packing plant went to

for Pertland:
Case of Pacific Live Stock
Company vs. State Water Board.
et ul. came up in the United
States District Court thia morn
ing before Judge Bean. Tread
well and Rand were here for the
cempany: Atty. General Craw
ford for the Water Board. The
matter was argued to some length
and as it was a request for an in
junction against a state proceed
ing and one in which the consti
tutionality of the State Water
Code is involved the law provides
that it must be heard before
three judges, one of whom must
be a member of the U. S. Circuit
Court The case therefore had
to be continued until such time
as it can be presented to Judges
Bean and Wolverton of the Dis
trict Court and Judge Gilbert of
the Circuit Court and was set
down for the last Monday in the
month, August 31.
Water Superintendent Geo. T.
Cochran, of LaGrande was pre
sent. This proceeding will call
for a postponment in the hearing
for the upper Silvies River which
he had fixed for August 31st,
and it is probable that such hear
ings will now be continued until
some time in November.
The Pacific Live Stock Compa
ny has served a 53 page brief in
support of their demurrer to
complaint in case of State of
Oregon against the company in
the land fraud case, and the
plaintiff has been granted until
Sept. lfith to file answer brief.
Uriefs in both of these matters
an; now being prepared.
This is how the Blue Ml. Kagle
puts it; The deer season opens
on the 1st of August again this
year, and continues until the 31st
of October. During that period
it is lawful to kill deer with horns,
with a bag limit of three in one
season. There are u number of
other restrictions in regard to the
killing of deer. It is unlawful
for any person having a killed
deer in his possession to in sny
manner mutilate the carcass to
disguise the sex of the animal.
It is against the law for any one
to have more than 40 pounds of
dried venison. The law does not
say what you are to do with it if
you have it and it belongs to you
but don't have it.

Last Year's Board of Directors Continue
With Same Officers. Committee
To Assist and Active Work of Pre
paring and Gathering Exhibits of
Farm Products. $1200 Premiums
Save the pumpkins, squash
and big turnip for we're going to
have a fair this fall as usual,
that is if the people will get be
hind it and make it go, otherwise
it will not be a success.
A meeting of the stockholders
of the Fair Association was held
last Saturday afternoon and it
waa then decided to go ahead
with arrangements for a fair to
be held beginning Oct. (. The
same hoard of directors were
kept in the harness and this
is augmented by a committee
consisting of P. G. Smith, Win.
Farre, Julian Byrd, L R. Brett-1
haupt. Frank Johnson and P. S. '
Weittenh.ller. A finance com -
mittee cons.sting of (,eo. Jry
andChas. Johns.... wm appoint-
ed to interview the business men
of Hums and ascertain ti what
extent the town would help
finance the fair. Until this com
mittee has made a report no deft
nite program can be announced
as those in charge must know
how much they may have to
work on.
It has been decided to Kive at
least $1200 in premiums for pro
ducts and livestock; the premium
list will ba revised to some ex
tent and the premiums made to
cover as great a number of our
resources as possible but even in
the premiums there must be
money contributed as the amount
available is not sufficient. The
men in charge should be at work
now on the premium list and the
general program snouiu as puo
lished just as soon as possible.
While there were not a very
big number at the meeting last
Saturday, those present were
quite enthusiastic if it will only
last- and with proper support
from the business men of Burns
we can have one of the best fairs
ever held. However, it is up to
these business men to make it or
not. The only way to make an
interesting and entertaining pro
gram that will bring the people
together is to finance it. There
is but the one means of doing
this and that is by contributions.
Other places do this and the
business interests make the fairs
a success. We can do likewise
but not by sitting down and let
ting "George do it."
The farmers and stockmen are
going to be treated right in the
way of premiums and it is hoped
they will begin at once assemb
ling their products and getting
them in shape; there will be some
means provided to get the exhib
its in where the producer is not
able to bring them.
1 The exhibits are most impor

for some of the products but the
grains are particularly needed as
the exhibit is to make up a part

fine products and stock, but also

producing, we want more people;
we need to encourage the farmer
by showing him what can be
done on the soil. The fair will
do much toward this and even if
one is not engaged personally in
farming or raising stock the
prosperity of the country depends
upon these and therefore every
individual is directly interested
in promoting its development.

We Are In The Grip
of The Beef Trust
We hnvp heard a good deal
about the importation of South
America beef into this country
with the prediction freely made
that it would ruin the American
market. Refering to the govern
ment year book for the year 1913
we find that the same interests
that control the situation in this
country, own, maintain and oper
ate the big packing plants of
South America. The two estab
lishments La Plata and Frigorifico
Montevido, the latter in Uruguay,
with two big branches in Pata
gonia are owned ry the Swift
Packing Company.
The La Plata packing plant is
valued at five million dollars.
The La Blanca plant is owned by
Morris & Company and Armour
& Company and the Frigorifico
Argentino is leased by the Sulz
berger Company. 1 n other words
they practically control the beef
of South America as they do in
this country, and as a reasonable
question we ask are they going
to ship to this country to ruin
their own "Snap"? They have
shipped some refrigerated beef
to this country in an attempt to
scare the producer and beat down
the price for their own profit.
Practically all refrigerated meats
come from Argentina and Uru
guay and is controlled by Ameri
can and English capital. The
meat imported into this country
is not sold as first grade beef but
is used in cheap restaurants, j
logging camps and with construe
tion crews. Irrespective of any j
terriff conditions the South I

with the home stuff and all ad
vantages of tariff go to the
American packer who controls
both the South American and
North American market. They
do, however, and will use the
situation to scare the American
producer and beat him out of
what he is entitled to. If any
stockman interested in the
world's beef and meat situation
will secure a copy of the Year
Book of the Department of .Agri
cultural for 1913 they can inform
themselves so that they need not
be influenced by beef trust litera
ture. -Blue ML Eagle.
Horse Hire by Size.
Paying for horse hire accord
ing to the size of the horse is the
plan developed and practiced by
II. W. Currin, an O. A. C man
who is now manager of a 2100
acre grain and fruit farm near
Drain, and a director of the
Drain cannery. For a small
horse he pays a dollar a day, for
the medium to heavy he pays
$1.12J, and for the heavy horse,
$.125. Even at that he claims it
is more economical to hire three
heavy horses to draw a large
plow than to hire four small ones.
The four small horses cost him
$4 per day, while the three
larger ones that do the work fully
as well cost him but $3.75. Be
sides this the three are more
cheaply fed and stabled than the
four. On a farm where many
teams are employed for most of
the year the difference is tjuite
material. If the horses were
paid for at so much a horse re
gardless of site, the added cost
would be very much greater
unjustifiable, thinks Mr. Currin.

top hay baled may be had at the
