Scheduled to leavo today for Now

shoulders sufficient woes and griefs
to bow down tho head of a minstrel

Ho claims his seconds, nonetheless,

was "not even dazed" by McCarty'a
blows and that tho fight should not

Ho wants to bet $3000 he can lick

(From tho Pacific Coast Packer.)
Tho growers In tho northwest are
beginning to reallio that with tho In
creased production tho prices on tho
famous big red apple will haro to bo
lowered to tho lorol of more pocket
books, in order to put tho fruit Into
consumption, llaallzlng this fact,
they are casting about for ways and
means to rcduco their fixed charges
nnd over-head expenses. Tho 10c per
hundred for storago la transit, and
tho 20 or 2Gc per box for storago In
markets, or nt least a portion of
theso amounts, tho growers say they
are going to try to save.
Picking, packing, hauling and ship
ping to markets within a period ot
nlxty days, fifteen or twenty thous
and cars of apples, with lack of facil
ities, insufficient help and tho short
age of cars, Is a very cxpenslvo prop
osition. Tho crying necessity, grow
ers believe, nnd tho ono which will
rollovo tho entire situation, Is more
storago at home. This, however,
does not necessarily mean cold stor
ago. With dry storago boubes such
as are found In tho Wenatchee val
ley, after tho picking nnd hauling,
tho movement may he conveniently
wado during a four or flvo mouths
period Instead of two, Much prep
aration must bo made. According to
Indications tho year 1915 may pro
duce a crop of 40,000 cars; somo say
50,000 cars Jrr Oregon, Washington
and Idaho. If this crop must be
moved In a sixty-day period it would
mean about 800 cars a day of tho
refrigerator kind, moved cast over
u haul ot probably 2000 miles. Even
with one-third of this crop, during
tho prevent season tho transcontinen
tal lines were unprepared to cope
with tho situation.
Million Loss in Fruit Waste
It is estimated that close to a mil
lion dollars Is being lout this season
by growers in tho great northwest
not having enough facilities to con
sumo their oft grades, windfalls and
.culls. Tho great northwest Is very
lacking in evaporators, canneries,
cider and vinegar plants. In some

THE activities of the Oregon Agricultural college mv
multifarious. Not content with referendum cainpaigiiH
to ruin the state university, the O. A. C. is now planning
to control horticulture in Oregon and at the same time
build un a powerful political machine at state expense.
A bill has been propnred J or submission to the legisla
ture, abolishing the state board of horticulture ami creat
ing a state commissioner of horticulture at a salary of
$2,500, with $2,000 expenses, $7f0 more Tor incidentals,
$900 for office rent and $1200 for clerk a total of $7:i."0.
The bill is ostensibly fathered by the state horticultural
society a self-perpetuating and useless institution that
draws an nnnronriation unauthorised by law of several
thousands of dollars of taxpayers' money for an annual
show at Portland. The draft of the bill reads:
1. All horticultural laws of Oregon are hereby ruponled.
? nm,. nf inti commissioner of hortloulturo Ik crtxittul. filled by
.innnlntmoiit hv tho following beard: Governor of Oregon, prooldent of
the stnti horticultural society, nnd horticultural of tint Oregon Kxporl
meutal Station, I'onullls.
But the O. A. C. is not satisfied with control of the
appointment, but also would dictate the chief deputy as
It. Commissioner shall appoint a deputy who slmll bo a scientific
horticulturist. Deputy must bo approved by thu following advisory board
beforo being eligible to appeintment: Uortleulurlat. Kotomologliit and
Pathologist of tho Oregon Experimental Station, Corvallls, Oregon.
The bill provides that tho commissioner shall appoint
inspectors to tho number of forty, to be approved by the
O. A. C. "advisory board." at a salary of $o per day and
transportation, paid for by the state.
The bill further provides that the commissioner shall
appoint an indefinite number of "quarantine guardians"
at a salary of $(5 nor day and expenses, to be approved by
the O. A. C. "advisory board."
The bill, if passed, will impose a heavy burden on the
taxpayers probably exceeding a hundred thousand dol
lars a. year and create a strong political machine, personal
ly directed by the O. A. C.
Under tho present law, the commission is provided but
little needed nionev. It cannot enforce a clean-un cam
paign without it, but by strengthening tho law, counties
can be compelled to clean-up orchards at their own ex
pense through tho commission.
Tho proposed bill will destroy the present efficient
system of inspection in vogue in Jackson county, which
is maintained by an increased assessment proportioned
according to age, upon orchard property, hence paid for by
those benefitted. This destruction of local control is proli
ably the real reason for the O. A. C. activity, for the many
mistakes made by its horticultural experts and experi-
mentists here have met sharp criticism.
The orchards in the Corvalbs section do not compare
in cleanliness with those of Jackson county, and the college
experts have not demonstrated, their efficiency in their
own section sufficiently to be placed in charge of the
"Why should the burden of horticultural inspection be
placed on the state? "Why not lcavtj.it with tho counties
affected? Why build up an expensive political machine
at the expense of all the taxpayers to benefit a small class
of property owners?

mologist and pathologist" ot tlie u. A. j. to control Horti
culture m urcgon, is reminiscent ol an aa recently primco
in Sunset Magazine which states:
"A president and thrco members of tho faculty ot a large agricultural
college organized tho Oregon Apple Company. Tho services of
nn expert horticulturist, highly recommended by the Oregon Agricultural
College wore secured. O. A. CO. orchards are twenty mile
south from Corvallls, borne of the Oregon Agricultural College."
Stock units are offered for sale in this concern in which
state employes use their official connection to advertise
their personal property and artfully convey an idea of
official supervision, at "one third down, with dignified
terms, no interest and no taxation in the selling plan."
What a vista of opportunity would be opened to such
enterprising scientists with absolute control of the horti
cultural interests of a state!
