And Remember to Get a Stop-Over for Springfield. 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." PEACE By Margaret E. Sangttcr, Jr. What though tho nigh ho darkest. What thouRh tho storm ho wild, When n tunn may nit hy his tublo With his wtfo nnd with IiIh child? What though tho food ho costly, And tho money ho senreo for nioro? A heart may thrill through tho winter chill Though tho wolf slta guard nt tho door. Tor within thero Is warmth nnd light ness, And over nil Is love, As n radiant gtonm of hrlghtness Shines down from tho Cod above. What though tho wars ho racing, And tho llehls arc strewn with tho dead? For tho light of tho lamp Is glowing On a mothor's golden huad. What though tho hosts are walling.
