SPRINGFIELD, OREGON, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1915
In connection with the recent exposures of the state dairy
and food coniniisisoner relative to the existence of a "dairy
trust" the Woodburn Independent aptly remarks: The country
creameries of Oregon are very much interested in the charge
of Dairy and Food Commissioner Mickle that a "creamery
trust" exists in Portland and that this trust fixes price, pur
chases country butter to make up their shortage, at the trust's
own figures, and the consequence is that outside creameries
are barely paying expenses. It is easy work for such a trust
to kill off the little concerns in the state, especially those not
far from Portland and Commissioner Mickle is to be applaud
ed for the stand he has taken. Nearly all of the Oregon cream
eries for thir market and members of the alleged trust "con
fer" to see what the price of butter is, and it is doubtless the
case that they also combine on the price of butterfat to be
paid dairymen. Country creameries must meet an advanced
price on butterfat and sell their finished product in a reduced
butter market. Dairymen should also be intensely interested
in this question, for if the country creameries are put out of
business by such trust methods the price of butterfat will go
down and the dairy industry threatened with annihilation.
Not only country creameries and dairymen, but all of Oregon
should rise up in arms against what promises to outrival the
dire policy pursued by the Portland fruit commission men.
H. M. BYLLESBY URGES SANE LEGISLATION
Addressing th annual convention of the Jovian League at
the Hotel Sherman, Chicago, October 15, II. M. Byllesby de
scribed the vital part played by public utilities in the develop
ment of cities and towns and the rapidly increasing improve
ment in farm lif and efllciency because of the telephone, the
interurban railway and the electric transmission line. He de
clared that no community could profitably thrive and grow un
less served by up-to-date utilities, and cited instances where
the regeneration of local service properties had been the basis
for revived municipal confidence, growth and prosperity. The
influence of the service organization upon civic advancement,
Mr. Byllesby said, was far greater than many realize. He paid
a tribute to the men carrying forward these various industries,
and asserted that no finer body of men could be found in Amer
ican commercial life.
"If these industries are to go forward and develop," he said
"If these industries are to go forward and develop," he
said, "we must all take seriously into consideration the ques
tion of how far the interference on federal and state laws may
go in choking off what has ben laboriously built up. There is
the greatest of danger that a doctrjne will be established, after
the manner of the stablishment of the English common law,
which will throttle th life of public utilities and destroy their
power of rendering widespread benefits to society. This ten
dency extends to other industries than their own in fact to
the broad commercial life of the nation. Our country stands
today in the shadow of one of the greatest perils which ever
confronted it namely, the discouragement of commercial
enterprise, organizaztion and efllciency by ignorantly hostile
lgislation. If this crises is to be avoided every one of you
must take an actual living interest in the political life of our
country and exert yourselvs toward the end that no laws are
nacted which are not workable and liveable and fair and based
on common senSe."
By Margaret E. Sangttcr, Jr.
