'Ihe Wilbur Woolen Mills of this city
will soon be a veritable hive of indus
try. Already plans are going forward
fur thu erection of a ware-house of
considerable cspaciy. Other perman
ent changes are also contemplated, In
cluding thu erection of a wool mattress
factory that will employ a hundred
girls st one-hundred sewing machines.
When It Is considered that Mr. Wil
bur is a self-made man, an authority
on the woolen mill industry si.d ssks
no favors of anyone, it will readily be
seen that the facts stated here should
be taken at full-face value.
In an interview on Tueaday of thia
week Mr. Wilbur aaid in part.
“ Notwithstanding the fact that we
now have free wool, the woolen indus
try is in better condition than ever be
fore. Fully INJ'A of the mills of this
country are enlarging their plants,
waking up and vetting ready to com
pete with the world in thia line. N< t
only that, but instead of raw wool be
ing chea|>cr, fully 50‘4 of the output in
Montana, Idaho and Wyoming is being
contracted for at from one to two cents
in advance over the price of a year
“The U. S. imported last year 370
million pounds, 40 million more than
was raived here.
The foreign wool
will blend with the coarser American
product and give a better class of
goods at an equal price.”
Mr. Wilbur stated further that he
had two high-class salesman on the
road and was going after the merchants
trade as well as the jobber's. Already
orders are coming in thick and fast for
fall deliveries and before long every
wheel in thu mill will be turning, mak
ing Oregon made goods.
Not only that, but Mr. Wilbur sees
that in the not far distant future more
mills of this kind lining the banka of
