npllE value of the poultry crop in Oregon is estimated
A at $G,000,000 annunlly. The value of the apple erop is
less than half this sum, yet we hear uiueh of apples and
little of poultry.
In spite of the six millions of products, there is a great
deficiency of poultry and poultry products in the Oregon
markets. Portland annually imports L"0 caroads of eggs.
Seattle and the Hound cities still more, Pctaluma produces
tfl0,000.000 of poultry products a year and yet does not
supply the demand of the San Francisco markets.
The Rogue river valley ought to be producing and
exporting a million dollars worth of poultry products a
month. The market is made to order. Natural conditions
are mere favoi'nblc than anywhere on the continent. Tho
fame amount invested in poultry enterprise that is invest
ed in. orchard properties, the same amount of intelligence
and industry, would result iu sueh a production.
There arc those who have the hen fever, who believe
wealth in raising rabbits. But exnorionoo has uroven that

The poullrynian should .raise everything he feeds. He
should himself reap (he profit on his grain, instead of pay
ing profits to the farmer and the middleman, lie should
produce his own green feed, vegetables and moat. It. is
because the average ixiultryuian buys everything instead
of producing it, that he docs not realize his fullest possible
profits. To do this, irrigation is essential.
Poultry is not as fascinating an occupation as fruit
raising, but it is a surer profit maker, Moreover, as i

I Nature has showered upon this region rich natural re
sources, but our exploitation has resulted in attracting the
ppequlator wthcr than the -developer. Now that there jjro
np longer o)portumties lor tho floating realty operator to
get-vich-quicKly by artificial stimulation and inflated al
uations this class of citizen js no longer flocking hero
and his absence is a good thing for the valley.
If we cannot induce outside capital to unlock our re
sources, we must unlock them ourselves. We must united
ly agree to favor the local producer in every possible in
stance to keen the mouev at home and provide payrolls
for the people.
With twenty-two billions of feet of merchantable tim
ber in our adjacent forests, wo arc shipping in twenty to
thirty millions of feet a year for the local market. 2s one
qf it'is manufactured here. The lumber in our dwellings,
and even our fruit boxes, is imported. We keep iu opera
tion by our purchases, several mills in other parts of the
fctate, when we might, at no additional cost to ourselves,
keep them in operation here and provide payrolls for sev
eral hundred men.
The people of the v;illoy are paying, iu labor and freight
over $100 an hour, ten horn's a day, for every day in tho
year, in railroad freight and labor in other sections for our
lumber alone. If every orchardist agreed lo use boxes
made here out of our own lumber, and every builder did
the same, we would soon have an immense lumber mill in
In lesser degree, the same condition holds true for
cement and other articles, that we import in largo quanti
ties, when nature has scattered the raw materials through
out our hills.
We let fruit go lo waste instead of cunning it, and im
port many carloads of canned goods, when wo are begin
ning to produce and can a superior article ourselves.
The Jist could be lengthened indefinitely. AVe import

With the initiative freight rate bill in operation, the
handicap against our locally produced products is elimin
