When Briau hail left, Ruth opened
her letter. As she expected. Mrs. Clay
The world has been taught a lesson of self -reliance
by the war that otheryise might have been indefinitely
delayed in the learning. England, for instance, has re
lied on her commerce and her manufacturers for her
wealth. She has been the common carrier for the world,
and she devoted so much of her ener gies to this and her
factories that, she left, other things undone and neglected
t be anywhere near self sustaining as to food products.
Conditions are such that she will always have to rely on
other countries for a part of her food supplies, but the
extent to which she had neglected' her possibilities at
home in this line are shown by what she has accomplished
since the submarines made their attempt to starve her
into submission. Within the last two years grass and
pasture lands amounting to more than four million acres
have been plowed up and made to produce crops. More
Ithan 800.000 acres more wheat, barley and oats were
grown in 1918 than the year before. While this did not
furnish a full supply it reduced the quantity necessary
to be imported to the smallest total in fifty years. To ac
complish this the women were asKea to tane up agricul
tural work and especial training schools were established
for them. On top of. this the American tractor was in
introduced which made the work possible. Last year it
is estimated 91,000 women were at -work on English farms
and this year the number had grown to above 300,000.
ThA innrpaspfl nrrencm taken from eame Dreserves and
lands heretofore uncultivated produced in cereals alone
this vp.ir around 100.000.000 bushels. Besides these more
than two million acres were devoted to other crops and
their product will go a long way toward feeding the na
tion. Here in America self reliance has been taught as rad
ically. Before the war we depended on Germany for
many things we have learned we can make as well our
selves. While necessity has forced us to fincLa way for
getting along without the German products, the effort
has demonstrated that we can also do without many
things we have heretofore imported from other countries.
This is especially true of the metals. Tungsten used in
hardening steel and in many war materials was practically
all imported before the war, much of it coming from Ger
many. Now this country is producing practically all it
requires, the1 product being one-fifth of the total for the
world. Manganese is another mineraLof which we were
short up to a short time ago, importing much of our sup
ply from Brazil. Now we are in a fair way to not only
product our own manganese, but to do it in such qjan-j
tities that the price will be greatly reduced, inis nas
' been made possible by the opening of mines in Colorado
and on the coast, and also by the recent discoveries of
vast bodies of the ore in Oklahoma, where it is stated in
recent reports the ore can be mined with steam shovels.
It, too, is a necessity in making certan lands of steel and
more than 1,000 tons of the metal are used daily in this
manufacture. Manganesium is another mineral which be
f i'c the war we imported our entire supply.
Now we are producing practically all we require, and
the discovery of the mineral in large quantities has been
made on the coast and in Colorado and Utah since the
war. A few7 years ago aluminum was almost an unknown
metal. Now, the United States is producing it in such
quantities that she not only supplies all home demands
but can furnish the allies all needed.. We are now getting
roost of our nickel from Canada, but there is no reason
.why this should continue for it is well known there are
big deposits of it in the Siskiyous vM southern Oregon.
Tt will not be long before we are producing to satisfy all
home demands. There are dozens of others, far too num
oious to mention but all of them being found and utilized
in the United States. As for the more rare and valuable
minerals such as platinum, mirridium, titanium and such,
the black sands of the southern Oregon and northern
California coast is a vast storehouse of them. An examin
ation of these sands made by the geological department
showed they were composed largely of some tyenty met-
The Oregonian continues to play up the differences
of opinion between Secretary of Wsr Baker and Senator
Chamberlain, and intimates the latter has plenty of am
munition laid away in the back of his head for use against
tne secretary and the administration. Of course it is all
done to slur the secretary and not through any love for
the Oregon senator. As a matter of fact there is little
love left in the state for Chamberlain since his attack on
the administration in his New York dinner speech. In
the same issue of the paper, the Oregonian has another
"dispatch" -from its Washington correspondent, headed,
"McAdoo Playing Politics, Administration Getting Con
siderable Advantage Out of Making Exemptions," fur
ther tending to show that it seeks every opportunity to
malign and misrepresent the government, seeking to fo
ment unrest and undermine confidence. The Hearst pa
pers are accused of printing seditious articles but the
worst thing that ever appeared in one of these sensation
al papers could not do the harm to the government of the
inuendoes, lying and crafty, directed against the govern
ment by the Oregonian. It has never missed an, oppor
tunity since the war was declared to slander government
officials o rdefend their detractor's. Its management evi
dently lacks only the courage to align itself openly with
the pro-German press.

A freight bill of $131.06 from Oregon City to Salem
on a carload of paper means that at the same rate the car
load carried to New York would compel the paying of a
freight bill of nearly $11,000. The railroad director gen
eral apparently expects to make the short hauls pay that
extra half a billion wages allowed the railroad men by
