Portland, Ogn., Jan. 13.

By a unanimous vote the con vention indorsed a resolution favoring the incorporation of such a company and the establishment of. Independent houses. Steps will now be taken to raise stock subscribtions to the amount j of 53,000,000 for the purpose of capital ; izing a corporation and placing It upon a financial footing to proceed with the work of establishing plants for the purposes outlined in today's discus sion. The Idea of the stockmen is to have a, corporation composed entirely of live stock raisers, who shall be share- I holders In the company and directors j of its business affairs. The plants of I this company are to compete wkli i combination plants, giving the produc er a better price for his stock and maintaining reasonable prices to the consumer.

Addresses made on the convention floor Indicate that the stock men are ready and willing to use their money land energy in unlimited quantities to bring about the desired result. The j packers combination was denounced j as a greedy combine that had not only I taken the profits from the stock rais j er, but now was reaching cut to try to absorb his principal. The unanimous I opinion was that the time has come i when the stock raisers must rise and overthrow this oppressing foe to the i Industry. The two sessions of the day were devoted to addresses upon this and ether matters of Importance to the . . T - . . . . . 'I-1 - I I ff-ivjv iv ii. en. t inui lung btssion was I consumed by reports from various states as to live stock conditions there. The afternoon was given over almost entirely to the packing house ques tion. , In the evening the delegates and visitors were taken through Portland's Chinatown where the celestials greet ed them with a brilliant exhibition of fireworks. The ladies in attendance upon the convention were entertained at the Portland hotel during the af ternoon by the ladies of Portland. OUTDOOR LIFE. WHI Not Offset the III Effects of Cof fee When One Cannot Digest It. A' farmer says: "It was not from liquor or tobacco that for ten years or more I suffered from dyspepsia and stomach trouble, they were caused by the use of coffe-? until I got so bad I had to give up coffee entirely and almost give .ip feuting. There were times when I could eat only boiled milk and bread and when I went to the field to work I had to take some bread ;nd butter along to give me strength. "I doctored with doctors and took almost everything I could get for my stomach in the way of medicine but if I got any better It only lasted a little while until I was almost a walking skeleton. "One day I read an ad for Postum and told my wife I would try it and as to the following facts I will make affi davit before any Judge: "I quit coffee entirely and used Postum !n its place. I have regained my health entirely and can eat any thing that Is cooked to eat. I have in creased In weight until now I weigh more than I ever did; I have not taken any medicine for my stomach since I began using Postum. Why, I believo Postum will almost digest an iron wedge. "My family would stick to coffee at first, but they saw the effects it had on me and when they were feeling bad they began to use Postum. one at a time, until now we all use Postum." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich. Ten days' trial of Postum Food Cof fee in place of ordinary coffee prove3 the truth, an easy and pleasant way. There's a reason.
