The consul adds: The dvnlzens of South Africa have always regarded corn meal unfit for food, but the various tempting arti cles propared from It at the agricul tural show by the American ladles have not only opened the eyes of South Africanders as to the great ben efit that may be derived by this country in the proper preparation of corn meal for food, but It will assist materially In relieving distress among ' the thousands of unemployed who are living principally upon gruel. Pamphlets containing 100 or more American recipes for preparing corn meal are being distributed broadcast throughout the Transvaal, with the object in view of aiding those who have been reduced to the verge of starvation.

Crawford Nays Oregon Should Do All In Its Power to Rejialr Injury Done Columbia Southern Is Roundly Scored. Attorney General A. M. Crawford, who in company with State Engineer John H. Lewis and Attorney John K. Kolloc, has Just returned from Laid-' law, Eastern Oregon, where a large amount of testimony was taken in the Columbia Southern reclamation case, gives It as his opinion that the state, having made a mistake In Its treat ment of the settlers affected by the contract, should do everything pos sible to repair the mistake made, once the litigation comes to an end, says the Salem Statesman. "I don't believe these people have been treated right," declared Mr. Crawford. He continued: "Everybody Is familiar with the case, how the state entered Into a contract with the Three Sisters company under the Car ey act. It will be remembered that as soon as the Three Sisters company had closed Its contract with the state,' It went ahead to Induce settlers to locate on the land, collecting from each a certalqs fixed proportion of the total cost of reclamation of the 27;000 acres of land. The Three Sis ters company represented to the state that there was plenty of water to re claim the entire tract, while aa a mat ter of fact there is water enough to reclaim only about 1.200 acres. The company collected from settlers In the neighborhood of $100,000, dug a few. ditches and built a plant which I do not believe would be of much, If any, use In a general irrigating scheme for the whole tract. "Notwithstanding the large amount collected, neither the Three Sisters nor Its successors, the Columbia Southern Irrigation company, of the Columbia Southern Irrigating com pany, ever paid into the treasury of the corporation any great amount of cash to cover the stock issued. I believe that the first named concern did pay in a small sum, but the most of the' work done on the project has been done with the money collected from the settlers. "One mistake made by the state was to enter Into a contract with the Irrigating company permitting the company to collect from the settlers before the water had been turned on the land. This enabled the com pany to collect a large sum of money without making any adequate returns. 'TThere are Jiow about forty or! fifty families on the land, and they are using all .the water the company can produce. A large number of the original settlers, learning that there was no water and no prospect of get ting any, have moved away. Those who remained are mostly, the ones who could not get away, and they are in bad shape. The reclamation project has been a failure, transpor tation facilities are lacking and bus iness in general Is not thriving. It Is my opinion that the state, having made a mistake In the treatment of the settlers In this case, should do what It can to repair that mistake. "We have accumulated considerable evidence, and the case will be ready for trial In the United States court as soon as Judge Wolverton gets around to set the time. The Issue is on the application of the state to set aside the contract made with the Three Sisters company 'and assigned by that concern to the Columbia Southern Irrigation company and the Columbia Southern Irrigating company."

Rucker, publisher of the Elkhart Truth, of criminal libel and flnjng him $100, says the American Press.
