Filer, per day 59.00 '
Price of Iocs per 1000 J $11.00-514.00
J. H. Hloedrl, one of the foremost millmrn in the tate of Washington,
who also owns mills in Rritish Columbia, testified that the labor cost in Brit
ih Columbia was 25 cents a thousand, and in Washington 55 cent per
thousand. Ilefore the passage of the Underwood law the inJustry emploved
about 15,000 men and paid nearly 515,000 in wage in Washington alone.
Recently representatives of the lumber industry appeared before the
Federal Trade commission, which is studying the cost of production. A: the
Chicago hearing these lumbermen pointed out to the commission the effect
of the Underwood iaw in paralyin an industry in whicn 49,0( .v and
shingle mils were engaged, employing 800,00 laboring men, with a product
of 540,000,000. half of which is paid out as wages. The commission looked
wise and said nothirtg.
Forty minutes debate was given to the Republicans on this gTeat sched
ule when, it wxs before the house. Congressman Fordney at that time re
marked: "You will have to dispose of a million dollar a minute. There
is $40,000,000 involved in this." To which Congressman Jack Garner.
Democrat of the ways and means oimmittee replied: "We can do that,
' Laughter.)" And they did dispose of it, effectually, to the accompaniment
of the "loud laugh which betrays the vacant mind."
HE ENTERPRISE hgs no desire to inject into its good roads
propaganda an element of personality or to divert the general pur- r
pose of the campaign of education in highway matters. This paper
welcomes expressions of opinion and gladly prints any letter which it be
lieves to express the true sentiments of the writer. It is with all respect,
therefore, that the Enterprise calls to the attention of County Judge Ander-
T IS BFLIF.VFP that Mr. Hrvan'i activity in opposition to the ptei
dent will he baed upon that plank in the Baltimore platfotm which call
for a ingle term in thr White 1 1 oust. There it wnind rran for uch

He hold to that opinion today. It wa he who put the one-term data

Here is an issue against the president which Bryn ihould make the most
of. In Mexico there are or were thousands of American who owned their
property which is or was worth many miliums of dollar. What ha the
Wilson administration done to give "the full protection of the United State
government" to these people and to their property? Here i a question which
will touch many a heart. And we hope that Mr. Bryan will not neglect it,

That the statements of this paper concerning bituminous macadam ate

years from now the county will realize that bituminous macadam is not as

GOOD ROADS TALK is not confined to Clackamas county or to
Oregon City, by any means. Down in Marion county there are at
least a few who are convinced that macadam, dirt, and rock roads for
trunk highways are wasteful. The Salem Statesman Friday morning ex
pressed the sentiments of this group with the following leading editorial.
A Salem man, returning from the California fairs a few days ago, said
he was very glad to get back to the Willamette valley; that we have a much
better country in most respects than California; that we lack only two things

When Governor Wlthycomhe was
here with the Ilcnson party he came
to the Oregon building first as a mat
ter of course. After making the rounds
of the building he expressed himself
enthusiastically and left no doubt of
his thorough confidence that tho state
has a magnificent advertisement in
Its unlquo building and the dlspluy
therein: Ho was pleased with tho np
pcurance of tho displays, thought them
adequate, and commented warmly on
the very attract Ivo appearance of the
decorations and the holiday ntmos
phero of the pluce. It was suggested
that he sno tho other Oregon exhibits,
then make a comparison with the ex
hibits and state buildings In compe
tition, and give his final Impression
Governor Wlthycomhe did this and
then said: "I can only add omphnsls
to what I snld this morning. I nm im

showing throughout, and I Iiavo seen
enough and heard enough today to
make me very proud of Oregon nt tho
exposition. The resources of tho state
oro shown up splendidly, and I believe
we will reap a splendid roward." Ills
words wore pleasing to those here con

attention and doubtless they will prove
a pleasant assurance to those In Ore
