HARRY FAIRCHILD DIES
Active Chairman of State Public Ser
vice Commission.
Olympia, Wash.-Harry A. Fairchild,
chairman of the Washington public ser
vice commission, is dead at his resi
dence here of apoplexy. For weeks he
had been working night and day on im
portant matters before the commission,
and a week ago Saturday collapsed at
his desk. He recovered after a few
hours and resumed his duties. * Sunday
morning he complained of a severe pain,
and before a doctor could be summoned
he became unconscious.
Mr. Fairchild was a prominent attor
ney, when in 1905 he was appointed
chairman of the newly created state
railroad commission. He individually
is credited with many accomplishments
of that commission, which in its physi
cal valuation of railroad properties
and other progressive measures is con
sidered one of the best in the country.
He personally drew most of the new
law under which the old commission's
powers were extended by the last legis
lature to cover all public utilities.
Mr. Fairchild leaves a widow and
one son, who were at his be lside when
the end came. Owen O. Calderhead,
rate expert of the commission, who has
been with it since the railroad com
mission first organized, is mentioned as
excellent timber for Mr. Fairchild's
office. Calderhead is admirably equip
ped, because of his direct knowledge of
important matters now pending, to fill
the vacancy. He has been Chairman
Fairchild's right-hand man in the work.
CHANGE NAVY YARDB SYSTEM
Secretary Meyer Will Import One in
Use By the British..
Washington.-Casting aside all scien
tific system of navy yard management
advocated in this country because he
believed they involved too much detail
and required serious changes in the
civil service rules of employment, Sec
retary of the Navy Meyer will import
from England the system of manage
ment used by Vickers Limited at the
Barrow-in-Furniss ship, engine and
ordnance works. This was officially
announced. The Norfolk navy yard
will be the first to feel thg change.
The new system provides for the cen
tralization of work and allows the com
mandant of a yard to know just what
is being done on a particular job with
out having to seek information from
those having the work under their
charge. It affords central planning and
routing and the elimination of defects.
Mr. Meyer says that with the new sys
ten te has not in contemplation any
changes in organization. Captains A.
B. Williams and E. Theiss, U. S. N.,
have been sent to England to study the
details of the Vickers system. They
will be gone about a month.
President Taft Climbs Mountain.
Tacoma.-President Taft climbed up
to the foot of the glaciers on Mount
Rainier Sunday, and narrowly escaped
spending a night in the mountain fast.
nesses. The presidential party made
the ascent in automobiles, and when
nearing the highest point reached by

came mired in mud up to the hubs.
After several hours the narrow road
was completely blocked. Forest rang
ers, with teams of horses, finally clear
ed the way, but night had fallen and
a storm threatened as the president
started down the decline. With search
lights blazing the way, the, president's
car slowly crept along the edges of
precipices and at times the outer wheels
were within two feet of a sheer drop
of 1000 feet or more. Mr. Taft re
turned safely to his train, ' which had
been taken to Ashford, near the moun

night, en route to Bellingham.

Brought Out Pointed Remarks.
"Clean Wheat" is the slogan of
growers, millers and shippers in the
Inland Empire, where an anti-smut cru
sade now is under way, with every
promise that the problem will be
olved. The prevention of smut will
mean from $5,000,000 to $7,000,000 a
year to the farmers in eastern Wash
ington and Oregon, northern Idaho and
western Montana, where the yield for
1911 is estimated at 67,000,000 bushels
is at the head of the movement and
has associated with him the heads of
agricultural colleges and rural schools
in the district.
of spring and winter wheat. State
Senator R. C. McCroskey of Garfileld,
president of the Anti-Smut association,
The camppign against the smut pests
had its inception at the convention of
growers in Pullman, Wash., recently,
when President McCroskey, J. M.
Klemgard of Pullman and Professor B.
W. Thatcher of the experiment station
at the State of Washington college
were selected to arrange for a series
of co-operative experiments with a
view to locating the eause and ascer
taining the proper treatment. The
state experiment station will co-operate
with the growers in this work. The
plan is to treat seed wheat at the sta
tion, under the direction of Dr. Hum
phreys, and send it to certain growers
who will keep a record of climktical
and soil conditions at the time of plant
ing and the percentages of smut ob
tained. This data will be tabulated to
afford a working basis in eradicating
the evil.
Theories dealing with the spread of
the scourge were numerous at the con.
vention. Several speakers declared it
was due probably to the substitution
of fall-sown grain for spring wheat,
though it was admitted there were in
stances of smut in spring wheat. Most
of the delegates favored the treatment
of seed wheat with a solution of
vitriol. It was intimated that it might
be economically profitable to treat the
seed grain with the stronger solution
of vitriol, even if it killed a certain
percentage of the seed, provided the
remaining portion was rendered smut
proof without affecting the vitality.
Other growers asserted that an exact
formula would be better.
J. M. Klemgard of Pullman, said
after declaring that the pest is spread
ing:
"If you desire to know whether you
are losing money on account of smut
go out into your field, and where the
heads stand close together reach out
and gather 100 of them in a bunch.
Then couint the smutty heads. If you
can find five such heads in your hun
dred that means 5 per cent of your
crop. This fall you could have scarcely
secured any bunch of 100 heads with
less than five smutted ones, and from
that up to 25-that is, from 5 per cent
to one-fourth of the crop was dam
aged by smut. Then, if you figure
what 5 per cent of your crop or 25 per
cent of it is worth in money, fou will
begin to see that it costs money to
raise smut."
Dr. Enoch A. Bryan, president of the
State College of Washington, predicted
that the problem will be solved as a re
sult of the occupation of the farmers
and the scientists.
H. H. McLean of Walla Walla,
Wash., who has 32 years' experience
in Washington, Oregon and several
eastern states, expressed the opinion
that if vitriol were used in the proper
way it would kill the smut. He said
he avoided explosions of threshing
mpchines by the liberal use of lubricat
ing oil and care in keeping the outfit
in perfect running order. He declared
there is no danger so long as the bear
ing boxes are cool and' would not hesi
tate to pull his machine into any field.
Mark W. Whitlow, who operates an
extensive wheat ranch in the Palouse
country, said:
"This year I treated with 25 pounds
of vitriol to 100 bushels of wheat, and
we let the grain soak for 10 minutes.
Some portions of the field were smutted
but little, and I noticed that the worst
smut is in the richer and heavier land
where the straw was rankest-in
draws, for instance. I seeded at all
times, beginning in September and fin
ishing in November. In my last sow
ing, which 4as in stubble, there was
not much smut.',
Professor O. L. Waller, vice presi
dent of the state college, and Professor
R. W. Thatcher, director of the experi
ment station, also spoke at length. The
latter said there is the Auestion as to
how long smut will remain virile in
the ground not in contact with the
wheat kernel, and whether it will grow
in the ground. If so, what methods of
tillage are responsible for the infection
of the soilt There is the question, also,
of how long a smut spore may remain
in the ground, jn the air, or anywhere
in the country, in a virile form.
"In other words," he added, "if we
could determine that the smut would
not live over one season, then we could
advise rotation systems which would
destroy the infection."

the town when the approaching bomard

they wished to leave the town. A few
were for leaving, but the majority de
cided to remain.
