STATESMAN NEWSPAPER FAMILY fN NEW HOME.
For a long time, it has been! the habit of The Statesman to say some-
; thing about itself ton the first day of January fit each year; and to crave
the indulgence of the public, since the offensemay not happen again for
another twelve, months. ;a J ji'- I I:',; '

In May of the same year the Northwest Poultry Journal was brought
ww me iamuy; being a merger or the tnree poultry and pet stock papers
theretofore published in the Pacific Northwest. The Northwest Poultry
Journal is now undlsquatedly the largest, and, we think, true to Its motto
the "Best In the West" ! 4 . ; .

During the . past year The Statesman newspaper family moved into, a
ne home of f ts ownj at 21S iBouth" Commercial-street-opposite the Marion
Ho 1. The two store buildings fronting on Commercial street Were thrown
Jntc ae, and the two floors and basement rebuilt and rearranged to accom
moc a the mechanical and ; editorial departments, and the livery stable
In tl rear, fronting on Ferry street, was turned Intto a warehouse for
. paper Ftock, etc. - Being thus, provided for the special needs of this news

posslb! In the rented Quarters, where there were five diffrent landloards,

Capital of Oregon, county seat lof Marlon county; market city for one
of the richest sectionstof the United States, with great undeveloped and
partially developed resources, Salem is a solid city, and destined to prosper
and to grow steadily, -v ! ' .
One of the biggest things that happened to Salem during 1917 was
the construction and opening for operation Of the first unit of the plant of
the Salem-Kings Products Company. This company has bought all the
available vegetables suitable for evaporating by their new process, givlhg
a market for all the vegetables the farmers In this community can raise;
and assisting also in'ttae marketing of fruits. The writer has no authority
for saying that other units will be added soon to the original one now in,
operation; but the room and the initial preparations are already Provided
and made; and. since there is an unlimited market for the finished products,
it is natural to take care of all the raw materials offered.- And. as soon
as the farmers and gardeners of this section all fully realize, as some of
them now do, that they can market at remunerative prices all they can
grow In the line of vegetables, more and more units will have to be pro
vided, to keep up with the natural growth. The sums of money brought ioj
Salem and the surrounding country to buy the raw products and to hire
tne laoor in tne iaciory, wm oe inns rapiojy . increased and these contribu
tions are already large and helpful.
t The article in this number, on the poultry Industry, by C. F. Williams,
editor of the Northwest Poultry Journal, is worth reading; and should be
read by every one who sees f this number of The Statesman; and more
especially by every patriotic citizen who has land; either a farm large or
small, or even a few city lots. .The raising of poultry now, duing the war.
is a patriotic duty. The lessons learned from the industry started in this
way will be of vast benefit to the whole country, and tohe individuals who
.take up the industry as a patriotic duty; for many of them will no doubt
continue in the. raising of poultry, to their lasting profit and for the general
good of a well balanced prosperity. Poultry products are going to be
useful to the country after peace shall have come. - The industry will never
be overdone. r - I r , ;
