THE WENATCHEE DAILY WORLD, WENATCHEE, WASHINGTON, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1909.
J. J. HIIJi, RAILROAD KING,
MARKS PLEA FOR BETTER AND
MORE SCIENTIFIC HANDLING
j OF THE NATION'S SOIL.
j "Give us a system of farming in j
;the Unite.l States which shall greatly
j increase the productiveness of the!
j soil," advised James J. Hill in an ad-!
! dress recently.
j Mr. Hill warned that the time is!
i not far distant when the farms as'
j tilled at present will not feed the peo-j
S pie in the country.
He said in part:
"The whole subject of our food
supply and its relation to population
industry, growth, institutions and j
! everything that concerns our future
|is appropriate for this occasion. The|
true statement of the broad general
fact which it is mose desirable that,
everyone should understand is this —
that this country can not feed the
'population which it must necessarily
have within comparatively few years!
if it does not change its horticultural
methods. The emphasis is all on that
Must Have Beta** Cultivation.
"We can not support our coming
population upon the crop yield per
acre that now satisfies us. We have
to transform a growing decline in
value and productivity of our soil
under continued cultivation into a
rapid increase in both. If this crisis
can be seen moving upon us now, and
if it took Great Britain over half a
century to raise her wheat yield from
about fifteen bushels to thirty-two
bushels puer acre, we have no time to
'What has to be considered the
keynote of all present discusion, is
not the difficulty but the urgency of
the task. The whole argument, is one
not of despair but of reassurance,
provided only that we do the obvious,
indispensable and feasible thing, and
do it now.
"All that is needed to turn an im
pending national deficit info a sur
plus, to support in plenty IT.O or more
persons to the square mile in the
Fnited States, is the use instead of
the abuse of the soil; the practice of
that knowledge which agricultural
schools and experiment stations have
already formulated and are daily put
ting before the people."

Portland. Ore.. Dec. It;. "Sneaks
and thieves don't advertise." was the j
text of an immigration sermon re-J
centlv delivered by a McMinnvillel
mil ister. He followed this up by
showing the value of intelligent pub
licity work in attracting settlers to
the Pacific northwest and the bene
fits alike to the newcomer and the i
country settled. Each settler means)
added wealth to the state and in re
turn the Pacific states offer greater
opportunities to the man from the
older sections of the county. The
.northwest has a duty to perform, be-1
j lieves this pastor, in bringing people
; from the overcrowded districts of
tho east to this land of opportunity
and live cities in the northwest are
making the most of their advantages
in attracting settlers.
The Portland Flouring Mills com-j
pany has purchased the Hammond
mills and holdings of that concern in
} Seattle and vicinity at an approvi
| mate cost of $500,000. The prop
; erty consists of the largest flour mill
in Seattle and a number of ware
houses. The Seattle mill has a ca
! pacity of 2,000 barrels of flour per
; day. T. B. Wilcox, president of the
Portland Flouring Mills, said the
growth of Seattle has been so great
: that it was advantageous for the
company to have a mill in that city.
; The entire business of the Hammond
] interests was acquired, including the
| agency in San Francisco. The Port
land company now has 14 flour mills
in operation, running night and day,
in various parts of the northwest,
and is turning out an enormous pro
The first of a number of excursions
•of business men from Washington
i cities to California will pass through
Portland January IS. and will con
sist of many prominent in the com
mercial life of Spokane. The visit
ors will be entertained here on their
way south. In the past these excur
sions have proved of great mutual
I benefit in bringing about closer ac
j quaintances between the different
| coast sections and as a result a
j united stand has been taken in solv
; ing mutual problems. People of the
city are looking forward with interest
! to the coming visits of their northern
neighbors during the winter.

DECEMBER SI AT CHELAN —
COUNTY TO REAR SHARE.
Chelan, Dec. 16. —The council
Monday night passed an ordinance
providing for a special election De
cember 31 to give the electors an op
portunity of voting upon the ques
tion of issuing $2500 in bonds to as
sist in building a new bridge across
the Chelan river on Woodin avenue.
The county will bear the balance of
the expense and a steel bridge costing
between $14,000 and $15,000 will be
built shortly after the first of the
year. C. E. Rusk was appointed in
spector and John B. Lucas and J. W.
Chatfield judges of the special elec

Ottawa. Ont., Dec. 16.—An import
ant conference was held here today
by representatives of the New Bruns
wick. Quebec and federal govern-'
ments. the railway commission, the
national transcontinental railway
commissioners, the Alexander Gibson
Manufacturing company, the New
Brunswick Lands and Power com
-1 any. the Miramichi Lumber company
and the Grand Falls Power company.
The subject of discussion was the pro
posal that the Grand Trunk Pacific
railway should operate its trains
through the New Brunswick forest re
gion by electricity generated at Grand
Falls on the St. John river. The mat
ter was first discussed in the New
Brunswick legislature last year, and
the plan suggested as a means of pro
tecting the valuable timber areas
from forest fires.
Would Move lied Apple Sign.
Tt has been suggested during the
. past week that the red apple electric
sign now at the foot of First street
should be removed to the foot of Kit
titas street. Inasmuch as the new
depot will be finished in a very shor*
time and that street is the main
thoroughfare form the depot it is:
thought that this would be the best
location htat could be found for
