attempting to engage in manufac
turing. Tariffs and the inter-state
commerce laws prevent us from be
ing successful manufacturers.
It is probable that Mr. Hill had
in mind the prosperity of his trans
portntiou rather than that of Ore
gon and the Pacific Northwest.
That manufactured articles must be
cariied long distances by rail belore
tney may reacli a nort of exjiort is
probably a condition desirable to
those engaged in the curving htisi
ness, but it ceitaiuly is a condition
that should stimulate the establish
ment of manufacturing industries
in Oregon and Washington.
If we have raw materials to ex
jmrt, why should we not manufac
ture them and exnoit the product?
May we not, here in Oregon, man
ufacture articles for export which
are now made east and carried a-
cross the conunet to our ports of
export? Is it not probable that we
are paying railway companies im
mense sums annually for biliigiug
us commodities manufactured in
the cast which we might produce
T facts that we are distant from
manufacturing centers and that we
have supplies of raw materials are
strong arguments why we should
put "made in Oregon" on as maiiv
products as possible.
I wenty-live years auo some of
the manufacturing possibilities of
Oregon were plainly set forth; time
has disclosed others, and now it
must be apparent to nil that these
should be laid hold of and made to
contribute to the growth of Oregon
and the prosiierity of our ncotile.
