The state fair of 1919 is a far cry
from the state fair of 1862. Hon. John
Jtinto, in one of the Oregon histories,
recalls how in the year 1858 the foun
dation, of the Btate fair was laid by
tan merging of the Marion Ciounty Ag
ricultural society with the Oregon fo
aological society and the State Agri-

uki, the Gompers. of Japan, speaks for
. the laboring class.
..Referring to the covenant, Suzuki
declared that "we can hardly agree
- with some of the conditions, for in
taneo, the fact that there is no reli
able assurance whereby war is mado ini
possible." " .
- 'Too little attention was paid to the
problem of racial equality, he said,
nd immigration of laborors was treat
ed only superficially, "and remains
ansoived, causing irritation."
"The form of the leaguo of nations
la filed," he said, "'but the spirit of
uch a league is yet to be born."
Suzuki, who arrived here from Am
erica, said Gompers told him he expect
ed to visit Japan about next April. :
Minister Ochiai and others who rep
resented Japan at the international la

tent" and "exposed their utter unpre

cultural society to form the -basis of
the present state fair association. In
1862 the village of Salem was can
vassed -by a committee of public spir
ited citizens and money raised to pur
chase and ence a tract of 80 acres of
land. With a mere handful of exhibit
ors on the ground the first fair was
hp Id and resulted in a heavy debt
against the association. It was at one
time proposed to sell the land and
equipment and abandon the project.
However the county court was per
suaded to assume $3000 - of the debt
and the balance wa taken up toy lib
eral citizens. The court then presented
the grounds to the State Agricultural
soeinty with the provision that state
fair be held consecutively for 15
years. The infant : struggled through
long decades of penury ana discour
agement, piecing out skimpy legisla
tive appropriations with its own re
sources, until it has wrought out its
present status of prestige. Its develop
ment has been due in a large measure
in later years to tho interest of the
'ate Governor Withycombe, himself an
enthusiast and a nractical worker in
the line of agricultural and livestock
production. It is fitting that his name
be honored with special demonstration
on the opening day for his influence
will be manifest in the grand total of
ex hunt ions.
