For Hila Indutary
The eslabliahuiuul al i'uilluud by
Swift A Company of u bugj packlug
plant bus been a great iuducemeut
to the farmers of Oregon to engage
la the hug laising busluvaa. Ali. a.I)
hogs are being introduced In tuauy
parts of the state, which has berutu-
foro bi»uu devoted almost entirely to
cattle raising, but yet thu packing
plants Lave to ship a large purl of
tl dr supply from Missouri nud
Illinois. Instead of Importing hog«.
Oregon sf.ould be able tu supply both

la speaking on the subject with
I. •<> 8. Robltinon of AlaincJa, Cali­
fornia, who Is heavily inloieated lu
Klamath couuty property. .Mr. Rob
iuaoo stMti d that lie b -lleved that
this county would become one of the
groatent log producing noctlons lu
tie country. The climate, the food
and ovurythlng Iscouduclve to pro­
ducing su excellent quality of pork,
superior lu iiviu the corn-fed |>urk
of Missouri and Illinois, This pro­
duct could be placed on the market
at u much greater profit than that
received by the Middle 44 o»t farmer»
on account of the difference In the
freight rate and thu faclUti«*s for
"To get the facts for actual com-
parlsuo," said Mr. Roblusun, “I will
cite a conversation with Mr. Hough,
manager of the Western Moat Com­
pany, tho largest packing concern on
the coast. They use great quantitive
of bogs. On March 11, 190». they
wore paying 7% ceuts fur live hogs
delivered in San Francisco
At that
time they wore shipping hog» from
Kansas nnd Nebraska, as they could
cot supply their needs alili count
Mr. Hough g-vc the following
“A 36 foot car, ulnglo deck, will
told 90 bog« Cf ISO pounds each.
Such a car from Missouri rlvi r cum
mon points to Han Frunclsco figures,
freight, 33 02: l> »• Is, 3125 pur cwt ,
or 33.25 per I * ; I
All llvo stock

times en route from the east
cost on such n car of hogs averag«*»
65 cents per cwt , 390 a car or 31
per head.
To'al cost of delivery,
3 1.80 p< r cwt., 33.26 per bead, or
3392 per car. Ti ore la also an olo-
Blent of shrink»««- due to the effect
of confinmenl In this long Journey,
which amounts to five or ten pounds
per head, say an averugo of seven
pounds. With u price of 7 M cents
at San Francisco, this would figure
Gross price for IS ) poundhog 313 90
Less freight, f»- i ng, handling 3.25
Deduct for shrinkage ........
Which would 1-ave n net return of
310.30 per head, or 35.72 per cwt
“The railroad ! as made a rate on
llvo bogs from Holland to San Fran-
elaco of 390.00 per car.
As there
Is no occasion for unloading to
feed In transit, these Items uro ell
minuted and wo have the cost of
delivery at 55 conts a cwt. or |l
per head. Tho returns from a Kla­
math county shipment would figure
as follows:
Gross price 180 pound hog at
7K Mats
313 95
lies'« freight charge
Net returns, 312.»5 per head, or
>7.20 per cwt.
“This gives tho Klamath region
a clear advantage of 32.25 per head
or a cent nnd a quarter per pound.
It muni bo romembored that this
advantage Is much more materlid on
a low market. It would seem from
these facts and figures that If the
farmer of Nebraska and Illinois can
get rich raising hogs on land nt
$100 to $200 per acre, there is n
harvest In store for Klamath county
bog raisers.”
Mike Woods, one of tho timber
cruisers of tho Woyerl auser Com­
pany, was in tho city nnd left
with J. F. Klmbal, local representa­
tive of tho company, last Wcdnc.day
morning for tho Illy country to look
over some timber which has been
offered to the company. Tho Weyor-
hauscra have been buying timber
right along, nnd pnylng about 31
n thousand. They hnvo a largo num­
ber of timber clnlrns offered them,
on which they hnvo no cruise, nnd
ns tho weather It now favorable, this
will ho done, nnd It Is probable that
there vzlll bo a number of transfers

The road making outfit which was
ordered by the county will arrive

hopes to make arrangements with
the railroad people to unload the
machinery at Midland.
The outfit
will occupy three earn and It would
be a big job to have to transfer
thia to barges, The mutter Ims been
taken up with the railroad, and It
la believed tlint it will be possible to
have the cars brought on to the

steam roller, traction engine nnd
rock crushing plant, screens, llovat-
ors, etc. If it is unloaded qt Mid­
land, tho traction engine will be able
to linul It to tho locution where tho
work will be commenced on the road.
Tho first work to be done will bo

tho canal at Altamont. This Is tho
conllntmnco of the present strip of
mactidnmlsed road leading front thia
city. The grade has been filled In
