ND NOW COMES the Oregon Journal and tells iU rcadors about the
wonderful discovery made by Jim Hill, who, in a speech at Portland
recently pointed out to tho gaping crowd of Portland "empire builder"
worshippers, that farmers were necessary to tho world. He told the
astonished listeners that the farmers fed the world, that the more farm
ers raise, the more foodstuffs there were for the consumers, that if the farm
ers did not grow anything, business generally would bo sadly hampered, that
the farmer was the groundsill of prosperity, and a whole lot of stuff of that
kind, all of which was of course trno, and most of which has .been common
knowledge since Cain was first a tiller of the soil. However, from the way the
Portland newspapers absorbed this "information" it would not bo fcuspeeted
that thoy ever heard of it before Mr. Hill kindly told them that when a crop
was takoii from the farm another could be grown on tho same land, and the
crowd went Into raptures over this startling information. It was indeed good
news. He also told his dovotees that whon coal was taken from a mine, that
no more grew there, that only a hole was loft. This caused some uneasiness,
which was increased by tho information that ore takon from a mine was also
gone forever. This almost brought toars. This was only a starter whon tho
old farinor-of-industrics got wanned up he told his astonished hearers that if
every farmer in the world would raise twice as much stuff to the acre as ho
did now, that there would be twice as much farm products, and that if they
doubled thoir yield and planted as many acres, thoy would also have 1,000,000
bushels where thoy only had 500,000 bushols before. The reporters got it all
down and the editors played it all up, and some of thorn even went so far as to
say: "nor is there any challenge to Mr, Hill."
Then one of the editors gets enthusiastic ond dolivers himself of this de
scription of the wondorful discovery of the farmer and what figuros would
do for him:
"For a long time ho rummaged history, swept hero and thore over the
earth and marshalled indisputable facts with which to impress upon his. audi
ence the tremendous import of a successful agriculture in Orogon. Mr. Hill is
unanswerable. The ton billion dollars worth of agricultural products in tho
United States in 1012, aro ton billion proofs of tho soundness of his position.
Agriculture is king. Tho sheet anchor of the republic Is in our farms."
Wo are glud indeed that at leiist 0110 Portland editor tins learned that ag
riculture is the basis of prosperity. Others of his ilk have thought it was tho.
tariff, but this Idea, thanks to the beneficent teachings of Jim Hill, will now
be abandoned. However, Hill hns boon making this speech so long that ho
almost believes ho is really tolling the people something. Ho delivered the
same address 15 years ago, and warnod the people then that whon coal was
taken from th mine, it would not grow a second crop, just as he did to the
Portland people Monday. It would have been worth seeing, though, to have
had a. sido glimpse of the old promoter's face as ho solemnly told his audience:
" No one can long doceive tho public; you deceive only yourselves whon 'you
think so." This statement coming from so great an authority was readily
cwallowod, for with the statements so self evidently trno that (he old man had
sprung on thorn, tho audience really believed him, though ho wan giving the
gang taffy and deceiving them when ho pokod that naked statement at them.
Wo recommend to our readers that they read Mr. Hilt's pnrado of plntitudos in
the Portland papers and then digest the whole gob of Hill's mental pabulum
if they can.
Now horo is another phase of Jim Hill's philanthropy, another sjiecimcn
of his "empire building." In this tamo speech ho told the city dwellers that
the price of Agricultural lands iu Oregon was too high. That ha was doing
all he could to induco Immigration over his lines, of course and that ho wns
handicapped in his philanthropic efforts by hard hearted land owners who hold
their lands too high, and so kept intending settlers from coming to Oregon,
Tho city men should use thoir bctit offorts to induce tho land owners to ro
lueo the prices of thoir lands so as to assist in populating tho state. Of course
ho took no note of the work the fanners liavo put in in bringing thoir lands
under cultivation, or of tho life time spent in doing so. He wants tho prices
cut down to benefit tho newcomers, but ho i not cutting rnilroad rates either
on passengers or freight to induce Immigration. Ho is taking all ho can get
and doing his best to fool the people into helping pull inoro chestnuts from tho
fire for his consumption. While talking about cheap Inmls, he did not mention
that the Hilt family has some 800,01)0 acres of Oregon Ian. In that It Is not put
ting on the market at any price, Whyt Itoenjso by holding them until othors
settling on adjacent binds adit to thoir vnlui, tho Hill family will get more
solid coin for the lauds they have dono nothing towards improving or making
more valnnble,
, Iunds cannot bo sold for more than people aro willing to pay for them, and
the fanner and land owner may with good grace tell the mighty Jim to go to.
He proliiibly wouldn't go, unless ho could riilu on his own road, and the place
suggested is not among tho empire Hill has built. Tho reason for all tho Hill
dissertation on agriculture is that he wants the farms cut up into small hold
ings and tho country densely populated for the one purpose of gaining more
trade for the Hilt roads, and ho would do this at tho cxkiiso of tho farmers
and land owners or any one else, if he could, Just so long as it could be done
without cost to him or others of the Hill famllv.

This year's corn crop is the most valuable ever harvested- It is not the
larjt, being considerably below that of 1912, but the price is much better.
The government estimates the crop this year at 2,463,017,000 bushels, and the
value at $1,741,353,019. This crop aloie would pay for fivo Panama canals.
The Oregon exhibit, consisting of a half-full baggage car of Oregon pro-,

but that is the only feature that will show a yellow streak.
The Republican leaders in Washington are congratulating themselves over
the fact that the election returns show tho Democrats are not iu the majority
and that if all the Progressives will just get in and vote with the Bepublicans
that party will have a nice little majority, However, there is just that one
thing in the way of perfect content with the situation, and -that is that the '
Progressives do not seem inclined to como into the fold in a solid body.

Koscoe Fawcett, sporting editor of the Oregonian, says that the "Undefeat

but is far from the truth, for as Mr. Fawcett knows, one of these teams was

lamette is the champion team of the state, for it defeated U. of O.'and this
O. A. C. could not do.
