LONDON, October 29. (Special to
The Advertiser) Greek, Servian nnd
Bulgarian columns nro moving upon
Salonica. Tho Greeks already aro within'
striking distance of tho Turkish
town of Vorria, only fifty miles from
Salonica, on tho railroad from Monastir.
Tho possession of Vorria by the
Greeks would not onlv threaten
but cut oft the Turkish army under
Zokki Pasha, which was defeated
by tho Servians nt Uskup and is now
concentrating in Monastir.
Tho Greeks could effect a junction
with tho Bulgarian army coming down
from Novrokop and Drama, through tho
Btruma Valloy, and concentrating nt
Sorrcs nnd with tbo Servians, who aro
advancing upon Voles. All the passes
through tho Rhodopo Mountains lending
to the Salonica and Adnanoplo Tall-road
arc also in Bulgarian hands.
Tho unofficial report from Constantinople
thnt the Turkish town of Scrvia
has been recaptured from the Greeks, is
not credited here.
Active diplomatic negotiations are
poing on among tho European in .Foyers.

FEDERAL 1 10
By L. A. Thurston.
Thursday, October 24, 1012, was n
day for upper OInn. On thnt
date thcro met at tho federal
experiment station nt fllcnwood,
Olaa, tho "Butter Makers' Associa
tion" to consider tho status of the
dairy business of tho vicinity; to see
and hoar what was being accomplished
by tho creamery rccontly established at
tho stntlon, nr.d to consider ways and
means of developing tho industry.
There are several reasons for calling
it a red-letter day.
First, it was tho largest meeting of
nctual settlers held in tho district since
tho old coffco boom was snuffed out.
Among those of tho actual residents
of tho district there were present: R
D. Jcnkin, A. G. Curtis, A. J. W.
G. Krotszchmer, F. G. Snow,
G. D. Supe, M. Rocky, F. L. Mini, M.
llolowaty, M. Pszyk, A. Waltjon, J. E.
Gamaliofton and F. A. Clowes, superintendent
of tho station. Thcro were
also present, as visitors: B. F. Dillingham,
Vf. F. Dillingham, II. G, Dilling'
ham, Vf. M. McCluskey, superintendent
of schools of tho district, and Ij. A.
Dairying a Success In Olaa.
Tho second point of importanco was
tho statement, agreed in by all those
prcsont, that dairying was a success in
upper Olaa. As ono of the activo
said, "Olaa is a cow country."
For several yenrs past tho appearance
of a few cows in tho district has indi
cated that tho climato and feed woret
suited to tho cattle; but it is only within
tho last year or so that it has been
demonstrated that thoro is a living in
tho business for dairymen operating on
a small scale. Interest in tho business
and hopo for its future have been great
ly increased by tho intelligent efforts
of tho oxperlmcnt Btation, which has
installed a creamery which, although
small, ig thoroughly up-to-date in all
How tbo Creamery Is Operated.
Tho method of operation of tho
creamery is as follows:
Tho milk producers dplivcr tho milk
to tho creamery, whero it is analyzed
for perccntago of butter' fat and is put
through an cream separator,
operated by a miniature engine. Tho
cream is tnen manufactured into butter
in an up-to-date churn, in which not
only is tho butter made but all of the
working out of tho butter-milk and
working in of tho salt is dono by machinery,
so that tho human hand never
touches tho butter. All of tho skim
milk is returned to the producer for use
in feeding calvos, pigs and poultry. Tho
creamery thereupon sells the butter nnd
credits back to each milk nroducer the
prico received for tbo proportion
ol furnished by him. Tho solo profit
of tho croamory is tho receipts for the
small amount or water and salt con
taincd in tbo butter.
A Cooporatlvo Creamery.
This percentage, Mr. Clowes explained,
would, ns soon as tho creamery was
running on a largor scale, bo sufficient
to pay tbo Operating expenses of the
creamery. Mr. Clowes explained further
thnt tho intention of tho experiment
Btation was to continue to carry on tbe
creamery until it reached a self-sustaining
basis, whereupon a small company
would bo formed, tho stock in
which would bo hold by tho milk producers
themselves. Tho ontiro creamery
plant would thoreforo bo conveyed
to such company nt cost, tho stockholders
being permitted to pay for tho
creamery in butter, tho station continuing
to opcrato tho same until tho
plant was paid for.
This cooperative plan of ownership.
made possiblo by tho assistance of tho
station, was received with much satisfaction
by tho members of the associa
To Secure Improved Oattlo.
Tho third point of importance
brought out wbb in connectior, with tbo
difficulty of securing good cattlo for
duirying purposes. Many of those in
tho district are of scrub breed, and n
few only of those aro to bo had.
Mr. Clowes stated that tho proper
thing to do was to mako n direct importation
from tho mainland for a few
thoroughbreds, from which
stock could bo bred and distributed
over tho district, while immediate necessities
could bo met by importing a
number of three-quarter and seven
eighths grnilcs. Jlis suggestion was
that the station should own the thoroughbreds
and give surrounding dairy
men tlio benefit tboreof, wbilo the
grades should bo purchased by tbo
dairymen. Tho chiof difficulty, ho
stated, was that the station bad used
up all of its current available funds
nnd that it would tuko probably a year
to accumulate surplus enough to? buy
tho desired thoroughbreds, whilo the
homesteaders luck tho ready cash with
which to purchnsn tho necessary cows.
Kilo Banks Will Help.
Ij. A. Thurston stated that, upon tbo
foregoing munition having been pre
touted to lit in by Mr. Clowes, ho had Interviewed

Ith Iho (trowina of various kind
miner pinnis, nun n view or nmhing
a small nrw support n large number of
roivw. A "eustom of thr country" In
Olnn has been to pasture the on
mo government ronil nnd nil over the
surrounding fnre nf tinture, an
of ten acres to n cow being nbuut
nil that could be rolled upon.
The stntlon Is experimenting with
npwnrds of n hundred varieties of
grains, grasses nnd other fodder plants,
with n view to securing so heavy a
yield that it will pay to cut nnd feed
the same to tho nnimals Instead of running
tlmni on tho range. -He stnted that
tho best fodder plant so far observed
was the honobono wandering .lew
which gTows luxuriantly. If, after
each cutting, mnnuro from the stnhlo Is
spread upon tho roots it results in a
continuous nnd cnormoitB yield. Next
in vnluo he hnd found tho parn grass,
One-half ncro of this, treated in the
same way, Is furnishing gTcen feed for
two cows at tho station. Other grasses,
clovers, sorghums nnd varieties of corn
also made a fine showing for vnrictv in
feed. Ho felt safe in stntlnc that it
was certain that the feed from two
acres would support a cow, nnd ho
that, with careful treatment, one
acre of upper Olan lnnd could bo made
lo furnish ample food for a cow.
1 Several of tho dairymen present confirmed
Mr. Clowes' statement as to the
valuo of intensive farming nnd hand
feeding instead of pasturing. Mr.
Itocky especially stiitcd that with fifteen
cows and four ncrcs of cultivated
honohono ho wns making good in the
dairy business, although ho needed more
Pood Production Experiments.
Another item of interest is thnt the
station is carrying on a largo number
of experiments with food nlants. Near
ly ovcry vegetable that grows is being
planted on an experimental scnle. That
no mean success Is being nchievcd was
demonstrated by the fact that a snmn
tuous lunch supplied, cooked nnd served
by tho ladies of tho district was,
with the exception of tho flour in tho
bread ana piecrust, everything served
was produced in Olaa. A two hours'
trip of inspection over tho station showed
many kinds of beans, peas,
tomntocs, squnshes, pumpkins,
nanas, tnro, sweet potatoes, radishes,
beets, onions, cabbages, artichokes, as
paragus, rhubarb, celery, strawberries,
and other vegetables. Whilo comparatively
few of them gavo promiso of
yields largo enough to nssure a profitable
money return, almost without exception
they gavo evidenco that the
bomestender could grow all of them, that
wcro necessary for himself and his family.
Quito a number of them showed
such vigorous growth that, under local
conditions, there is good reason to believe
they can be raised and sold at a
Commercial (Tests to Bo Made.
It is the intention of tho cxporimont
station to select tho most promising of
these articles and produce them on a
largo enough scale to show exactly
what can bo dono with thorn in a commercial
way. An exact nccount will be
kept of oxpenBO of producing the samo.
Tho products will then bo sold and an
account of receipts also kept, so that
fimires will bo available to homestead
ers as to just what can be expected in
connection with the production of any
common article. Tho results of these
experiments will be published, while
tho methods used nt the station arc at
all times subject to inspection. Tho superintendent
is also avnilablo for advice
ns to how, when nnd whero to
plant nnd care for tho various vegetables.
Tn otbor words, thcro is being carried
on nt the upper Olnn station an
demonstration farm, of the
typo which, on tlio mainland of the
United States, is today revolutionizing
farming. Tho small farmers are being
taught how to work in a cooperative
way, and are having tho burden taken
off their shoulders of conducting experiments
to find out what can bo raised
nt n profit and how it can be dono.
Another loading feature of tho station
work is tho fact thnt tho istntion
is being chiefly curried on by funds
froir tho special conservation income
tax; that" this boing insufllcient wit,h
which to cnuin and enrry on tho sta
tion, locnl peoplo nnd 'concerns nt Hilo
have subscribed something over $1000
n vear for tho next fivo years with
which to assist in carrying on the station,
thereby cnnblincr it to bo estab
lished. Without this assistance the
htntion would still bo a matter of tho
future. Among the subscribers to this
fund are H. Ilackfeld & Co., Hilo Mercantile
Co., Pirst Bank of Hilo, E. N.
Holmes, G. W. Lockington, Olaa Sugar
Co., T. A. Drangn, Hilo Railroad Company,
and E. C. Bcamor. The public
spirit shown in this matter Is one
worthy of emulation in other parts of
tlio Torrltory. If more of these experiment
stations, with agricultural experts,
in sympathy with tho objects of
the station, ns Is the caso at Olaa, could
bo established in the several districts,
Binall farming in Hnwaii would speedily
assumo a moro healthy complexion
to tlio benent oi tuo community, I'uut
icnlly, socinlly and comincrcinlly.

doubt whether the campaign will havo
tho proverbial "whirlwind flniili" this

for thnt event, but somehow or
other there is less of a disposition this
year for that gloat nnd overoworing
Tho lack of campaign funds may
have something to do with it tho
weariness of tho general public with
political discussion also may havo n
bearing. Hnt, any way, if thoro is to
be a "whirlwind finish" to tho national
campnigu it will como vory Into
nnd be very brlof. In most campaigns
tho final yield of contributions comes
in about the mlddlo of October. Much
of this product is nvailablo for whooping
it up in tho scores of ways that

But none of the parties has a surplus

It is becoming moro nnd moro a
question wbethor tho voters can ho
reached and finally persuaded nowadays
at tho vory fog end of a campaign.
Thero is moro reading matter
than ever, nnd it is carefully dosignod
to reach every class and kind of readers.
In this campaign the tondoncy has
been steadily toward moro and moro
advertising in tho newspapers. Tho
national chairman has bocomo convinced
that it is a vory suro and satisfactory
way of getting arguments

effectivo than to distribute monoy

Of course, there nro many candidates
for local nfliccs in numorous States
who nro making tho welkin ring. Thcso
seem to be arousing more of a hubbub
throughout tho country thnn tho national
candidates, but, of course, "Washington
hears less about them. Tho congressional
campaign Republican, Democratic
and Bull Moose appears to
have been and to bo lifeless, compared
with what congressional campaigns!
hnvo been in former yenrs. Fow of
tho contests for scats in tho houso appear
to bo commanding national attention.
Tho fight for tho Presidency
probably has overshadowed tho fight
for tho house and tho senate. It should
not bo a surpriso if these congressional
contests come into a li,ttlo moro prominence
townrd tho close of October.
The gubernatorial campaigns, toe,
will wax into contests of great moment,
with tho one in New York, as over,
holding chi?f .attention. Sulzer anS
"Hedges and Straus aro all out upon
the hustings, spenking to tho capacity
of thoir respective lungs. Tho governorship
of tho "Empire Stnto is tho
biggest political prize to strive for in
this campaign, saving only tho Presidency,
and tho candidates for tho chief
seat at Albany may well exert
to tho limit in vote-getting.
One hears it said by some peoplo wht
have information, thnt if the election
could bo hold in December this year, instead
of in November. President Taft's
chances would mightily improve. No
ono can tell, of course, just how truth
ful a prophecy that is, but it seems to-
havo mucn substance A great many
voters undoubtedly went over to Booso-
velt in the earner stnges ot tno campaign.
It seems to bo quito as certain
that gradually they havo been straying-back
to the fold. "These shifting movements
in popular sentiment requiro timo.
They aro not accomplished over night.
G. O. P. Slowly Eecovering.
The Republican national committee's
machinery did riot got to working well
till curly in October. Much of it has
been shattered and impaired by tho
events of tho summer and early autumn.
A torriblo strain hnd been put upon it
by tho great hurrah that Roosovolt
raised at Chicago in Juno and later by
liis agitation over charges that tho
nomination had been stolen from him
It required days and weeks to recover
from such a shock, for, nftor nil, Roosevelt
is an of tho United
States nnd the very fact of his station
has influence with great numbers of people.
But his followers have now hnd opportunity
to cool off. After thinking
and listening to the other side of tho
story, the situation tnkes on n different
nspect. Tho hold of party tics becomes
more euectivo and tnoro is less disposition
to break with old political friends
for good. Tor months nnd months, the
President's friends have been nppoaling
to tho people to give his administration
fair consideration. Theso nppeals havo
been put out in many torms and havo
been emphasized much by speakers.
It takes some timo to got tho attention
of the United Stntcs when attention
has liecn diverted to something
else. Ninety millions of people nro not
easily brought to consider a proposition
in a new light, after demagogues
nnd sbouters have been putting a different
interpretation upon it.
And yot in tho long run tho peoplo nro
likolv to turn to tho right view. Tbo
President's supporters hnvo been waiting
patiently and, in mid-October, it
looks as thouch nt last there was a dis
position to appreciate much that Mr.
Taft has accomplished whilo in tho
