their farms to the grain elevators
and hay warehouses, settler:! of

time build up their farms for still
more profitable farming in the
future. Dairying is still in its
Infancy, but with creameries at
Prineville, Redmond and Bend,
it will shortly become an industry
of great importance according to
R. E. Reybolds, extension live
stock man of the Agricultural
College, who has been working in
that territory. Dairying should
prove profitable on alfalfa farms
since the hay that now brings but
$10 or $12 per ton should bring
twice as much market through
the dairy cow. It should prove
profitable also in those regions
that have shallow soils with out
cropping rocks, since fieid-crop
agriculture can never be practised
successfully there. It is believed
that the development of this
section will be greatly stimulated
by the introduction of livestock
and dairying industries, and that

Add Enormously to Our National
Assets, According to The Views of
Newspaper Man in an Address
Mark Sullivan, editor of Col

last Saturday to the advertising
clubs of that city. Cleveland,
Buffalo and Rochester, declared
that the immigration from Europe
that would follow the end of the
present war, and especially from
Germany, would add enormously
to our national assets.
That immigration will increase
is to be expected. Poverty poli
tical oppression and religious per
secutions are, historically, the
stimulants of emigration. Ex
cept in the case of the Jews of
eastern Europe, the latter factor
has ceased to be operative. Nor
is an increase of political oppres
sion likely to occur. If the war
produces any political effect it
will be in the direction of more
The factor of poverty will re
main and be intensified for the
time. Whichever side wins, the
destruction of wealth will have
been enormous. The life of the
common man will be harder and
he will be more inclined to take
"hazard ot new fortunes" in
land over which the destructive
broom of war has not passed.
Mr. Sullivan estimated an im
migration of at least 1,000,000
immediately following the end of
the war, and largely from Ger
Wherever in Europe the immi
