ASTORIA'S NEW 11
HIGH-CLASS CLAY PRODUCT
PLANT TO BE ESTABLISHED
WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS
: TESTS MADE AND PRODUCT
CAN BE SEEN AT THE ROOMS
OF THE CHAMBER OF COM-MERCE.
Astorian is to have a new industry
at once that bids fair to place her
among the foremost manufacturing
cities of the Northwest a modern
high class clay product plant which
will be in time equal if not superior to
any enterprise of its kind on the
The general reader perhaps, may be
a little skeptical as to the claims
made by the promoters of this enter
prise for you have not yet had the
opportunity to see the results of the
test work that has been made under
the auspices of the Chamber of Com
merce. Those who are interested in
this matter are kimjly urged to be
present at the meeting of the Cham
ber of Commerce tomorrow night.
At this meeting will be exhibited
various clay products made from your
own clays as follows: Drain tile,
possessing unique qualities, not only
for drain tile but for a type of clays
used in the manufacture of unglazed
earthenware flower ppfsand kindred
Brick of all kinds including face
brick, paving brick and common
builders will be exhibited and other
various characteristics discussed from,
a scientific and commercial stand
promises a great future for the enter
prise. With such an array of basic
colors as pure whites, reds, blacks,
buffs, the blending for desired shades
can be assured. -
Such practical matters as colors,
hardness, reproduction and the prob
able cost of the various finished
products to the market will be taken
up in detail at the meeting Monday
night. Suffice to say for the present,
however, that the probable cost of
brick to the market will be very rea
sonable f,or all common builders,
but the established market price will
doubtless govern the price of No. 1
face brick. These cost matters arc
usually left to the determination of
the management of the industry.
The sewer pipe type of clays will
represent also what can be done in
the fire-proofing, roofing tile and terra
cotta lumber branch of the clay
Terra cotta products can be manu
factured from clays located in As
toria in combination with other clays
found in the immediate vicinity of
the city. These clays have excellent
working qualities, burn with slow fire
shrinkage and are suitable to mould
and shape into thin walls that will
mature, or vitrify at comparatively
low heats. This is an item of much
importance to stockholders as it
would.be a great saving of fuel and
furthermore, reduce the cost of pro
duction in other respects to a
No announcement of recent years
could rival in importance to this city
the possibilities of an up-to-date clay
product industry, equal to the iron
and steel industries.
Bank balances will increase and
there will be anladded amount of
money along all lines. The Chamber
of Commerce is to be congratulated
for its efforts to establish this genuine
home industry. This city has been

It should be the policy of the com

for a dry-press brick plant with

Incorporation under the laws of
the State for the above amount will
afely start the enterprise. Articles
of incorporation can provide for an
extension of the plant when ncces
sary without further legal proceed
nigs. When stock is subscribed to
warrant going ahead, directors will
be chosen by the stockholders who
will, manage the enterprise. The ele
ment of non-productive capital and
idle equipment will at all times be
avoided as much as possible.
In this connection those who wish
to further investigate as to the stand
ing and' character of the party doing
the test work and promoting the en
terprise will find on file with the man
ager of the Chamber of Commerce,
J. II. Whyte, a dozen recommenda
tions which you are invited to look
Some are from bankers, large busi
ness houses, professors of colleges,
preachers, editors, attorneys at law,
brick factories, and note in particular
the one from the general manager of
the street railways of Oakland, Cal.
These recommendations are from
parties in the East and in the West.
Note also the further qualifications of
a college degree of bachelor of
science which speak for itself.
To build a plant to manufacture
both face building and paving brick,
would require more capital than the
above mentioned sum. It would
mean the manufacture of brick by
both the dry-press and stiff mud
process. The latter process however,
requires an extensive and expansive
system of drying the products of the
waste heat plan from hot kilns.
But when the dry-press process is
once installed and operated suc
cessfully circumstances will doubtless
warrant in a short time the extension
of the plant to not only include pav
ing brick but terra cotta, drain tile
and other clay products as orna
ments, flower pots, etc.

Touch of Nature Makes
Whole World Kin."
When a rooster finds a big fat
worm he calls all the hens in the
farm yard to come and share it. A
similar trait of human nature is to
be observed when a man discovers
something exceptionally good he
wants all his friends and neighbors
to share the benefits of his discovery.
This is the touch of nature that
makes the whole world kin. This
explains why people who have been
cured py Chamberlain's Cough Rem.

ers for publication, that others sim
ilarly ailing, may also . use it and ob

letters is a warm-hearted wish of the
writer to be of use to some one else.
