The nation has fallen for the Oregon
loganberry. It likes the berry fresli
and it likes the it evaporated, and
even our old tried and true friend o
irraDo iuice fame, the Hon. William
Jennings Bryan, says that if the na
tion must be drunk let it be drunk on
ldganberry juice. A case of the fa
mous Pheasant brand of juice made at
Salem reached Mrs Bryan at the Pa
lace Hotel the other evening just be
fore he started for the big tabernacle
here to deliver his address on "This
Causeless War." The public and the
newspapers agreed that Mr. Bryan
orated as ho never had before, and said
he was full of inspiration. We at the
Oregon building knew that it was lo
ganberry juice, and that the newspap
er men suspected it was evidenced in a
cartoon in the San Francisco Chronic
le the following morning showing Mr,
Bryan with "His New Love" a bottle
of loganbery juice. Grapo juice was
given a seat far to the rear, Oregon
was pictured as a succession of sites
for loganberry juice factories, and in
the background loomed the old Salem
brewery with its big sign displaced by
another announcing its conversion in
to a juice factory.
All of this with articles in the sever
al San Francisco papers, attracted
special attention to loganberry day at
Oregon building, July 29, and hero
thousands from the four corners of the
nation smacked their pips over gener
ous samples of the fluid extract, tast
ed the evaporated berry restored to its
original glory with this aid of water
for which Oregon is famous, and at
the building's domestic sicence lunch
eon Exposition swelldom consumed
loganbery sherbets, ices and pie. Lo
ganberries and loganberry juice liter
ally overflowed the Oregon building
oh the 29th. O. L. Ferris, represent
ing the Oregon Fruit Juice Company,
the first Oregon concern to manufac
ture loganbery juice for commercial
purpose, came down from Salem and
cared for a large shipment of the Phea
sant brand in bottles of all sizes from
the two-ounce to the gallon. A large
pyramid of this stood in tho center of
the floor and hundreds of gallons of
tho liquid were trampled from the
booth. Loganberry jam made from
the evaporated berries of last yeur
was served spread on crackers and
this caught the fancy of every taster.
The Northwest Product Company, now
operating the great brewery at Salem
as a loganberry factory, sent down n
tremendous quantity of juice and this,
the "Loju" brand was served to all
coiners under the direction of Fred S.
Bynon, secretary of the Willamette
Valley Association. This factory can
manufacture an enormous quantity of
the liquid. This same concern also

operated a booth here at which regist
ntion of sample boxes of the "Forest"
brand of the evaporated berry were
taken, and after tasting the delicious
samples served every man and woman
registered without being urged. A
i.nnt moo fnllons of iuico were on
tan the 29th and that this advortls
ing stunt will prove very beneficial to
the particular concerns involved and
to the loganberry business is not doubt
ed by anyone nt the building.
In a program of address during the
afternoon, Judge J. H. Logan of Oal
land, the originator of the loganberry
was conspicious. He told how as a
matter of accident ho secured n cross
between the Texas Early blackberry
and the ursinus dewberry, and then nn
other cross between these two and the
Red Antwerp raspberry. This was in
1881 and the fame of the loganberry
ban grown to the proportions of today
Judge Logan was n resident of biuua
Cv7. nt the time, was judge of the
superior court, and experimented with
nhtnts ns a hobby. 'I hough G years
of nge he is still experimenting nnd
with li' n at the Oregon building on
Fridc. w i a three year old daughter,
a beaut;: 1 little blue-eyed loganberry
that r ir Hed the attention of every
one. Commissioner John F. Logan of
Portlandwhose wife was named Berry
hud a proper place on the program
and made a rousing speech on tho glo
ries of Oregon, Loganberry and other
wise. W. A. Taylor, of Salem filled
with Loganberry enthusiasm, also
whooped things up, and both he and
Mrs. Taylor are entitled to special ere
dit for their hard work in the preli
minaries, though all at the building
contributed a goodly share. All Ore
gon grows loganberry and will profit
from this splendid effort
Thanks to U. M. nnd G. G. Stack-
land, of Cove, Union county, tho Pcn
sylvania building with its historic and
greatly Liberty Bell has nothing on
the Oregon building. These artists,
who last week supplied the Eastern
Oregon booth with two immense de
signs in which light and dark cherries
were used to form the American flag
and an eagle upon a shield have now
sent down a "Liberty Bell" done in
Bings nnd Royal Anns. The design is
four by six feet, and the representa
tion of the bell, even to the crack in
this historic relic, is perfect. The
idea pleases the public and the size
and beauty of the cherries pleases the
visitors even more. Eastern Oregon j
cherries, coming in two weeks after
the Willametto Valley, Rogue River
and Hood River cherries, have the
field to themselves and attract very
much attention. Most easterners
have never seen cherries the size of
Oregon Bings and Lamberts, such ns
Eastern Oregon has on display at the
Palace of Horticulture and the show
ing is in the nature of a real treat, lie-
sides the Liberty Bell, the immense
flag shown at the Cove cherry fair two
weeks ago, and which traveled 1,050
miles to get here, is still on displaying

Eastern Oregon scored another
bull's eye this week. In the selection
of officers for the permanent organi
zation of those connected with Oregon
activities at tho Exposition, Mr. J. A.

made chairman, while J. A. Ward, of
Coos and Curry, was made secretary.
Since commissioner Logan's arrival at
the building there huve been weekly
or semi-weekly meetings of all con
nected in nny way with the work hero,
and these have proved so successful
in securing desired results that it was
with Kerosene
determined to make a permanent or
ganization. Mr. Lackey, because of
his geniality and the lack of vitriol in
his system, was placed in the scat of
honor. The meetings will continue
as heretofore and each and every per
son will have fullest opportunity to
voice suggestions for the good of the
cause. This makes it possible for all
to work together in unity and to assist
Manager Hyland in the effective work
that is being done.
Jack London, famous author just in
from a five months sea trip, came to
tho Oregon building the other day, saw
the exhibits, registered and under re
marks said:, "Fine and splendid."
To tho one in charge, Jack said he
could write n book 3tout the Oregon
showing. Incidenlly he remarked
that he had been buying the Coos Bay
myrtle wood furniture for several
years, had ?700 worth ordered afTlifs-
time, and that he thought it tho most
beautiful of all woods. Francis Wil
son, world-famous stage artist, has
come to the building several times. He
thinks the furniture made by the Ore
gon children, together with the dress
es and other features in the education
al display, wonderful in tho extreme
but not more wonderful than that 75c
luncheon served by the domestic scien
ce girls from the Agriculture college.
Mrs. Phoebe Hearst, the greatest of
tho great in the Bay region, is another
charmed with the domestic science
luncheons. Senator Ben Tillman,
brandishing a cane rather than a pitch
fork, saw tho sights and said he would
go back to Carolina tho happier for
having seen Oregon's building and dis
play. Teddy Roosevelt failed to get
into the Oregon building but saw
tho Oregon exhibit in the horticultur
al palace and was "delighted" as r
matter of course.
Let it be urged once ngain bring

tra blnnket and the Oregon winter
underwear if you want to really enjoy
tiie Exposition San Francisco always
has her winter in the good old summer
time, and the big show is located on
the windiest and foggiest side of the
city. July and August are always
counted worst of the year and Sep
tember, October and February the
best. July has offered some pleasant
weather but more that has been too
cool for real enjoyment of the outside
features of the Exposition, these being
by far the greatest. Don't miss the
show but come prepared to enjoy it.
The powers of Europe besides engag
ing in military controversy arc engag
ed in one of tho greatest diplomatic
struggles that perhaps the world has
ever seen. Tho center of the contro
versy centers around the Balkans

enter the war on the side of the allies

six million men, but with no munitions
wun which to arm tnem. The open
nig of the water way past Constanti
nople is necessary to the allies to se
cure the safe shipment of adequate
munitions to Russia and for the export
of Russia's bumper crop of wheat to
the other alios. The key to tho en
, tire situation is in the hands of tho
Balkan States, particularly of Bulgar
ia. Upon the outcome of tho diplo
niatic efforts will depend largely tho
outcome of tho military struggle. The
diplomatic affairs appear to bo reach
ing the culminating point, and about
to be definitely decided one way or an
other, in tho very near future. Uncor
tain press reports say that Italy only
awaits the development of tho next
few days, events before declaring
war upon Turkey.
And in any event the situation may
only become tho more complicated,
without materially hastening the ulti
mate results. Watchful waiting
seems to have become the policy of
tho weary world.

In this age of scoffers and material

Jane Addams, fresh from the tour
of the courts from Europe on a peace
inission found in ench court the same
explanation "We are defending out
rights". None was the aggressor. All
wore "defending their rights". What
a pitiable exhibition of the incapacity
of humanity for self government. The
doctrine of sellishnes has been carried
to its logical climax. The theory
of every man for himself has been en
larged in Europe to every nation for it
self and they have played the game
til it has reached the point where no
man can move unless to his own de
struction. What Europe needs is a
complete revolution of ideals.
The opposition to the county court
docs not seem to bo making any great
progress. Many might have been wil
ling to show their disapproval of the
road policy of the court but when it
came to anything ns drastic ;i3 a re
call they will have none of it. The
fact develops that considerable of the
animus of the crusade is due to person
al antagonism to tho Watuoii brothers
and quite likely much of thi is to the
brothers credit being sprung from poo
pie who finding they can not lie ruled
would ruin them. The Watsons are in
a measure fortunate in their enemies,
With a little squelching of fool fiienJs
