Oregon's BU School for Farmers
Teaches Everything But
How to Farm.
While the Oregon Agricultural Col
lege has an enrollment larger than
any other college in Oregon or Wash
ing too and only exoeeded by Stan
ford University and the State Univer
sity of the California colleges and it
is a splendid success in mauy ways.
yet it falls far short of being an og
riooltnral ootlege, for too mncb of its
work has no bearing whatever on the
science of agriculture. The depart
ment known as the experiment sta
tion, is all that Ib really doing work
that is effective in advancing the
argioultnrul interests of Oregon.
This department has Dr. James Withy
combe at the head of it. The Doctor
Is a practical farmer and not a theo
retical college man and the splendid
work in agricultural research and
demonstration that he and bis stall of
instructors are doing is having a
most helpful iufluence in raising the
standard of agriculture in Oregon
and making it a iroBtable vocation to
the farmers instead of merely a means
of gaining bare living as has been
too muoh the case with the average
On the need of a change in the
methods of conducting the State Agri
cultural . College the Roral Spirit o!

"The announcement of Dr. Tlios.
M. Gatch, president of the Oregon
Agricultural College, that it is his in
tention to retire at the end of the com
ing year brings Dp afresh the subject
of the sphere of an agricultural ool
lege. After 10 years of splendid ser
vice at the bead of this Inst i tot Ion
Dr. Gatch retires with the good will
and hearty sympathy of the whole
faculty, who at their last meeting
adopted resolutions expressing this
fact in words highly complimentary
to the aged, but able educator, and
it Is with the same feeling of defer
ence and respect for ' his splendid ser
vice and ability that we say that bis
resignation is coming none too soon
for the good of the institution. A
few more might be accepted on the
same hypothesis. In fact a general
reorganization might be effected to
the ultimate good of the agricultural
interests of our great state which we
think are entitled to an agricultural
college in fact as well as in name.
President Gatch is an able educator.
but he is not an agriculturist makes
no pretension of being one his tastes
aud interest run in other lines and
with such a man at the head of the
institution and with others of similar
inclinations filling most of the ohairs
is it to be wondered at that the agri-
co tnral department is the weakest of
all the departments maintained in the
school? Is it any wonder that the
boys who enter that department are
dubbed as 'Rubes' and 'Hayseeds'
and on account of that influence are
often deterred from takiug an agricul
tural course and sometimes influenced
to change to some other after they
have chosen it? Agricuiural college
forsooth? Either the usme or the
naturs shocld be changed. As we
said In an editorial on this subject
some weeks ago we believe 'the trend
for the laitt few years has been to
ward the specific purpose declared in
the name,' but it is entirely too flow.
At the present rate it would Uke a
thousand years to reach the point and
we believe now is a good time to in
stall a more rapid pace in that direc
tion. Let much of the work now done
there be left to the state university,
Put a man at the head of the iustito
tion who is in the prime of life, an
agriculturist in theory aud practice.
whose heart is iu the work and whose
iutluence will lend dignity and char
acter to tbit department above all
other. Iu fact let there be no de
partuieoU except those pertaining to
agriculture in its various phases aud
let each department be provided with
specialists who are wide-awake, pro
gressive aud np-to-date aud able to en
thuse their students and inspire in
terest aud pride in the work for
which they are fittiug themselves.
Let us have an agriculutral college
that will be a pride to the state and
the envy of others; one that 'will at
tract to its wall the brightest young
men and women of our aUte who will
there fit themselves to return to the

OF IRRIGATING LAND
Uses a Big Centrifugal Pump and
Gtxaollne Engine to "Lift
Water From Creek. -
Of the success of a Jackson connty
farmer in irrigation by a pumping
plant the Medford Tribune baa the
"J. G. Gore is completing a plant
tbat will enable him to utilize the
waters of Bear creek in irrigating his
orchard two miles south of town.
He has installed a four inch Byron
Jackson centrifugal pump that draws
water with a six inch sue' ion, and
discharges six inches of water to a
height of 26 feet. This empties into
a flume and gives sufficient fall to
eosura a rapid flow of water making
it pcsdble to put the water on the
land very quickly. The flume has a
2x8 bottom and 1x10 side giving an
8x3 flume. This furnishes a head of
water of 4(10 inches per miuute, suffi
cient quantity to cover the entire or
chard. The original plan provided
for the use of the pipe but being un
able to obtain the necessary piping
the flume is used us a temporary ex
pedient. Mr. Gore has an excellent
setting of both apples and pears and
expects the moisture to bring the
fruit to a high state of development
The oost of the plant is in the neigh
borhood of 1700 and power is fur

Of the progreas of the survey for
the Soothern Pacific branch line from
Natron, a station on that Company's
line in Laue county, into Southeast
ern Oregon, the Klamath Falls Repub
lican tells the following :
"The surveyors of the Natroo
Klamath Falls branch of the Soothern
Pacific railroad are now working this
side of Naylox and will be in Klam
ath Falls some time next week. The
engineer in charge of the work visited
Klamath Falls this week, bot as it is
a portion of their work to keep mam,
and they believe iu earning their
money, no information regarding the
real signiHcance of the survey being
made was oblaiible. "

of the Cottage Grove creamery: "As
an illustration of the growth of the
business, comparison is made of the

with that of June this year. In

A Medford Newspaper Man e.nd
the City Attorney Are in
In the federal court at Portland,
Saturday, Martin G. Hoge, oity at-:
torney of Medford, who wa found
guilty in conjunction with Charles
Nickell, editor of the Medford South
ern Oregonian and Democratic Times,
last Thursday night under an indict-!
ment charging him witb conspiracy
to defraud the government out of title ;
to its public lands, and Henry W. ;
Milter and Frank E. Kincart both of .
whom had pleaded guilty to the same
offense, were sentenced. The two lat
ter were each given one year's im
prisonment at hard labor on McNeill's
Island, while Hoge, ou account of
his physical condition and tha fact
that Government Prosecutor Heney
interceded for leniency, was given a
much lighter sentence, a fine of $500
and four months' imprisonment in
the Multnomah county jail being the
extent of his punishment. Nickell
had already obtained a stay of execu
tion until Monday morning, August
6, hence no action was taken in his
case at Saturday's proceedings.
In prononncing sentence upon the
trio of culpri'g Judge Hunt exercised
every consideration for the circum
stances of tneir respective cases. He
commeuded both Miller and Kincart
for their plea of guilty, and ad
monished them to take their punish
ment to heart, so that when they
emerged from the government prison
they would be in a, position to heed
the lessons of the past.
The court advised Hoge to return to
Medfotd after serving his senteooe and
endeavor to live down his offense.
He was returned to the county jail
after sentence had been imposed,' and
commenced serving time at once,
while Miller and Kincart were taken
to MoNeiU's Island.
Marie Ware McKinley, through'Lew
Tarple'y, her lawyer entered a plea of
not guilty to an indictment charging
her. State Senator Mays and others
with conspiracy to defraud the gov
ernment. Special Prosecutor Francis J. Heney
asked for and was given an order for
feiting Horace G. McKinley's bond
in the ease in which he was oonvicted
and in another case still pending. Mr.
Heney asked that bench warrants be
issue! for his arrest. MoKinley'a
bondsmen, who will havJ to stand the
penalty of bis non-appearance, are
Eugene Blazler and Jack Grant, both
of Portland. McKinley is believed by
government officials to be in China.
Efforts are being made to bring him
Mr. Heney also took an 'order for a
severance in the case wherein Her
mann, Williamson, F. P. Mays. Wil
ard N. Jones and George Soreueou are
jointly indicted for conspiracy. The
severance affects Hermann aud Will
iamson, and the case against them
will go over for the term.
