Plant Conducted by the Benton
County Fruitgrowers Assn.
Interesting Place.
Continued from Tuesday, October 8.
A representative of the Democrat
yesterday visited the cannery at Cor
vallis. It is now run by the Benton
County Growers' Association, in
charge of a competent superintendent.
During the past season a specialty
has been made of Logan and black
berries, gooseberries, red raspberries,
pears, apples, cherries and a few
beans. The greatest trouble is in
getting enough of an article to make
it pay to handle it. Canning toma
toes, for this reason, has not been en
couraging. It is an interesting fact
that North Albany is the best toma
to section in the valley.
While the returns are not all in, the
superintendent reported the probable
price for Loganberries as 4 cents,
blackberries 3 to 3J4 cents, gooseber
ries 3 cents. About 30 cents a bushel
is paid for apples as they come.
The best blackberry for canning is
the Evergreen, the best strawberry
the Wilson, the best red raspberry the
Cuthbert, the best cherry the Mt. Mo
renci, then Royal Anns and Lamberts.
Beans can well, but peas are very
The cannery is well equipped and
is meeting the demand for a market
for the things mentioned; but much
more is needed to make a cannery
pay as it should. It is up to the valley
producers to furnish the goods.
Under the system patrons pay $1
for membership in the Association,
entitling them to its advantages. Be
fore receiving checks for the products
the final settlement of the season has
to be awaited, a drawback, but prac
tically the only way until the busi
ness is more thoroughly developed.
W. J. Graves of Edmonton, Atla.,
arrived in Albany last evening and is
registered at the Van Dran hotel.
Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Pierce of
Hot Lake, Oregon, returned home
this morning after attending a meet
ing of the board of regents of the
Oregon Agricultural College, of which
Mr. Pierce is a member.
Mr. and Mrs. J. K. Weatherford
returned home this morning from
Corvallis where they attended . the

H. Von der Heller, a prominent res
ident of Medford and a member of
the board of regents of the Oregon

land this morning on a short business
trip before returning home.

The Day of the Small College
Has Not Passed Says the
Portland Paper.
The following editorial appeared in
yesterday's Portland Journal:
'The latest candidate for public ap
proval for rebuilding, enlargement,
and progress among the schools for
higher education in Oregon is Albany
"The college, in its present location,
has an excellent reputation for ser
vice during many years. Hut its op
portunities have outgrown its capac
ity. The trustees had to elect be
tween expending a large sum on re
pairs and enlargement of existing
buildings and equipment, and of un
dertaking the great responsibility of
acquiring a considerable tract of laud,
commensurate with the prospective
Albany college, and of providing in
due time the cost of the new struc
tures. "They have taken the bold course,
regardless of the labor and energy
it will involve. They announce that
every effort will be made to have a
recitation hall and two dormitories
ready for use during the year 1913, at
a cost ranging between $125,000 and
"A very attractive sketch of the new
campus and of the intended college
structures accompanies the trustees'
announcement. They have done very
wisely to determine on their require
ments, and on the style of architec
ture that commends itself to them, at
this early day. The amount of mon
ey involved is estimated at $500,000.
"Thus, another proof is offered that
the day of the small college has not
passed. No exception must be taken
to the adjective "small."
"Many parents prefer for their boys
and girls the smaller classes and
more individual attention that are fea
tures of the smaller institution. And
they lay stress also on the atmos
phere that surrounds such colleges,

clusivcness, yet admit the religious

State Chairman Haney Fixes
Wednesday, Oct. 16, as Date
For Oregon Senator.
That United States Senator Geo. E.
Chamberlain will speak in Albany on
the fight of October loth, was the
word received from State Chairman
H. K. Haney this morning.
Not only will the junior senator
from Oregon speak in Albany next
Wednesday evening but it will" he the
only appearance made by Chamber
lain in this state during the present
The meeting will be held in the Al
bany Opera Mouse and the arrange
ments are now being made by Chair
man Hilyeu of the democratic county
central committee.
No man in Oregon has a wider
personal following than Geo. E.
Chamberlain and the state boasts of
no speaker who can draw a larger
crowd. His services as a campaign
orator are in demand in nearly every
state in the union and it is autiei
pated that the opera house will be
crowded when the junior senator de
livers his speech Wednesday evening.

the Christian character within college
walls. The fact that so strong an ap
peal is made, and is responded to, by
the members of some special branch
of the Christian church to provide
funds to establish and endow such in
stitutions indicates desire that the
tenets of that portion of the church
shall survive, ami shall be explained
and perpetuated in such college as
may be in (uestion.
