St. Louis. Oct. 27. Louis B. Magld,
president of the Silk Culture League
of Tullulah Falls, Ga., and an ex
hibitor of silk in the Georgia iieciion
at the World's fair, says this year's
cocoon crop In Japan will reach
109,000,000 pounds, the producers of
which will receive about J38.600.000,
which Indicates that the Russo-Japanese
war has In no way affected the
Bilk crop of the latter country.
The Japanese government, accord
ing to Mr. Mugid, has given more at
tention this year to Its silk crop than
at any other time, realizing the Im
portance of that Industry and what
It means as a source of revenue at
this particular time.
In the opinion of Mr. Magld. If the
federal government would give one
tenth the attention which the Japan
ese government gives to silk, the
southern states would soon make a
crop of cocoons equal In pecuniary re

Dr. A. Leroy arrived yesterday
from the west, en rout to Milton In
the prosecution of his work as super
intendent of the Oregon Information
Bureau. At ml I ton he will finish th
work of collecting the exhibit of pro
ducts peculiar to that famous Irrigat
ed district, and arrange for forward
ing the results to Portland.
Since he was last In Pendleton Dr
Leroy has visited the following points
which have taken actively to the work
of contributing to the exhibit In the
Portland union depot: Albany, Salem,
Corvallls, Philomath, Toledo, Yaqulna
Bay, Newport, Forest Grove, McMlnn-
vllle, Falrview, Gresham, Cascade
Locks, Hood River. The result of
this trip and those preceding It Is that
Dr. Leroy declares there Is now on
exhibition In the union depot the
finest collection of Oregon products
ever gotten together In the state,
without any exception whatever. In
the doctor's own language, "It Is sim-
rply magnificent."
Dr. Leroy spent four days at Hood
River Inspecting ths beautiful ex
hibit of Hood River district products,
but In spite of his utmost endeavors
he was able to secure but II boxes of
selected fruits for the Portland ex
hibit What he did secure, however,
is very fine, and is an assorted lot
comprising every variety. The rea
son ha did not get mora was because
the Hood River business men and
other citisens realise ths value of ad
vertlsing and simply bought up and
shipped through to St. Louis, for tne
World's fair, all but It boxes which
Mr. Leroy was ao fortunate as to get
hold of.
Th Information bureau has th
name and places of location of II
families from the Bast which havs
found homes in Oregon through the
direct Influence of the bureau during
the past summer. It Is altogether
likely that at least an equal number
have 1 scale in the state through th
Influence of the bureau of whom th
bureau has no direct knowledge, or
perhaps none at ail. Thee 15 fam
ilies, by ths way, are all In Linn,
Lane. Douglas, Marion and Multno
mah co untie.
Robert Burns Expecta Walla Walla to
Receive State Aid Hereafter.
'It Is more than probable," re
marked Robert Burns, agent for the
O. R. V N. company at Walla Walla,
that Walla Walla county next year
will appropriate money to assist the
fair and racing association. There Is
a state law In Washington that pro-
vlds that after a fair has been In
succosfiul operation fur two years,
the commissioners may render assistance.
"I believe that Walla Walla coun
ty will put up 16000. With that
amount of money backing the enter
prise It should be one of the greatest
successes of the kind ever known in
the history of Walla Walla county.
"The race meet and fair Just closed
was a success. I speak from th
standpoint of an outsider. Ths
crowds were large and there Is no
doubt but that the association cam
out with money ahead. Heavy
purses were hung, but the entry
money alone was almost enough to
pay for the prises. Few of ths men
with horses came out with much
money ahead."
Mr. Burns came down to Pendle
ton last night on business. He win
return home tomorrow.
