. . ....
jiwnv atntcs luivo ticoolcrutua tlio uuiruii ot progress m
tuty lines. 3sTot only (Ho Anstralian ballot, compulsory
'bitrniion. tlio sinsrlo tax. tho initiative and referendum,
the minimum wage, but nauy other social, political and
industrial reforms owe either their origiu or their first
demonstration to the antipodes.
Victoria is at present setting the world an admirable
example of farm oo-opcration. Co-operative butter fac
tories have united in largo districts to economize in mnn
nirmiuMiL: nnd lunrkot efficiency. Pork urowers have
united advantageously, while sheepmen luwo followed
Oioir lead and benefited exceedingly by getting together.
Co-operative bhcon factories have brought order out
of demoralization in the hog industry. They have in
creased tho prices paid to .the grower, sind created a de
mand that has stimulated production and bettered breed
ing. The increased income received by farmers amounts
to more aunuallv than tho entire cost of tho plants.
Mutton producers have invested $300,000 in a co
operation mutton packing company, the most up-to-date,
on tho continent. In 1011, 120,000 sheep were handled,
though tho, vear was a bad one, due to drouth. In U)l
tho output was 150,000. The farmers who are suppliers
have received much higher prices than those who sold out-side,-
The day has come when the farmer must take a hand
in the marketing of his produce. As long as he trusts
blindlv to others, ho is going to buskinned. "While he may
make a few mistakes in organizing his marketing machin
ery, in the long-run he will tremendously profit.
Tho farmers of the Koguo river valley must organize
as -well as the fruitgrowers. They must secure theroby
the full value of their products. The single farmer does
not produce sufficient quantity to market in carload
quantities, but combination with his neighbors solves the
t. The, truck gardeners, tho poultry men, the small live
stock grower, will all find their profits increased and their
market cnlargedlty eD.-Qiwatiou.
IT is now. proposed to us the famous old battleship Ore
gon, a few years ago the pride of tho American navy and
the heroine of .the Spanish-American War, as a target for
somo gunner to sink at thefirst shot.
The fact that the people have several million dollars
invested in the Oregon makes no difference to these naval
strategists. 1 is true that an inexpensive wooden scow
would answer the same purpose, and be a still better tar
get, because harder to hit, but this only intensifies the
desire for a target worth while.
The fact that a considerable percentage of the popu
lation consider such use of the former pride of the nation
as little less than sacrilige, is entirely disregarded by those
in authority. They are insane with lust of .spending
monev at Mars' shrine.
It" now costs tens of thousands of dollars to fjro , a
single shot. It ia thus proposed, to make it cost a mil
lion or two. The move is in keeping with the insane ar
maments of the day. The eight great nations of Europe
increased their expenditures for army and navy G25, mil
lions of dollars or 45 per cent in 1912; They spent a total
of 2000 million dollars on armament. Four million men
in Europe arc constantly kept 'under arms, involving an
economic loss of a billion dollars a year by withdrawal
from production. The total cost of war preparations in
time of peace in Europe is now three and a half billion
dollars a year and still the absurd increase in armament
progresses and still the worse than criminal expenditure
of money that can end only in bankruptcy.
It will take some such vandal act of wanton destruc
tion, some such ruthless sacrifice of sentiment, as the
destruction of the Oregon as a gunner's target, to bring to
a head the latent animosity of the people to armaments
of all kinds and sound the death knell of the wooden
headed and steel bottomed American navy, as a needless
burden to an enlightened nation a survival of fuedalism
outgrown by civilization, even as the navy has outgrown
the famousold Oregon.
, FARMERS ,MUST BRAND BUTTER. . ,,
A i . 7i r i . i,
AIIULTNO of importance to farmers is that recently
made by the state dairy and food commissioner re
quiring all dairy butter to be branded and labeled as fol fel fol
eows: AH dairy butter offered or exposed for olc will be .considered uilt
branded If It docs not huvo plainly marked on each roll or kquaro tbo
words "Dairy Uuttor," "10 ounces full weight," or "32 ounces full weight,"
and tho name and addreus of tho manufacturer. Any person offering or
exposing for salo dairy butter not branded in. compllanco with this ruling
will be proscjucd uudor tho statutes provided for tho branding of food
The explanation is offered that it is not the purpose
to work hardships upon small dairymen, but that tho
ruling is intended for their protection, sis every roll of
bad country bitter, if unbranded, injures the reputation,
of tho good butter. "With the butler branded, responsi
bility for both good and bad can be instantly located. A
good brand will create its own market and secure better
