T iie democrats have not been slow
to profit by the mistakes of the re
publican congress, as evidenced by
their Nebraska platform. Our tariff
policy toward Porto Rico, and the
“bimetalism” section of the financial
bill each came in for a share of de
nunciation, which is both eminently
proper and to be expected from the
other side. But these are consider
ed by the enemy vulnerable points
in the republican armor, and are rec
ognized by the democrats as our
weakest points. Therefore, all mis
takes, if any have been made, should
be remedied and their effects uproot
ed entirely, and not covered up. No
temporizing is wanted, and in this
dangerous pastime the republican
congress cannot afford to indulge.
S ince the farmers of this valley

ence is in favor of creameries, which
are able to manufacture butter at a
lower cost than dairy butter can be
made, and which product commands
a much higher price. The farmer
who is within reasonable distance of
a creamery can sell milk to the insti
tution, from which high-priced but-
ter is manufactured quickly and
cheaply. The Albany creamery, rep-
resenting a capital of $5000, was
built in 1895. Taking figures for
1899. it received the milk of 383 cows
from 52 patrons, handled 1,075,580
pounds of milk and made a product
from the sale of which it realized
s 18,237.18, of which $14,450.19 net
was returned to the 52 patrons in
payment of the butter fat taken from
the milk. The difference of $.3,767
represents cost of manufacture,
transportation charges, interest on
st< ck and amount laid aside each
year to be applied towards taking up
shares of stock outstanding.

there is a vast difference. The Portland

New Orleans which will not fail to bear
good fruit for this section. In conversa
