SALEM AND THE LOGANBERRY- INDUSTRY
The loganberry industry is already contributing a great deal to
the commercial life of Salem.
Take for item number one, the annual payroll of the general
offices of the Pheasant Northwest Products Co., putting up "Phez,"
"Loju," etc. That amounts to about $33,000.
Take for item number two, the payrolls of the factories of this
company. That amounts to several times $35,000, and is bound to
Take for item number three the wages paid to pickers, and ex
pended in Salem. That amounts to a much larger siim than is paid
to the factory employees.
The items could be extended through a long list, including auto
truck drivers, box manufacturers- etc., etc.
And all these payrolls are capable of being increased many
fold the- largest proportionate increase, of course, to be on account
of the farmers and farm help and pickers, as the yards increase in
number and size andlproductiveness. The "overhead" charges will
increase the least rapidly in proportion.
And then there are the concerns that dry and ship loganHerries,
and the ones that pack and ship them fresh to distant markets.
Altogether, the loganberry industry is already one of the big
gest things in Salem and it is, bound to become the biggest of rail,,
with the right kind of team work on the part of all our people.
i No other crop grown may depend less on man labor. Women
and children can do the picking. Women make the best hands in
the yards training the vines. They are doing this right now, in all
.directions, and are making good; more than good, as compared with
'the average transient man labor.
So it is good business and loyalty to their home city, for every
Salem booster to get .behind the slogan of more acres of loganberries
and more loganberries to the acre, on a thousand farms near Salem,
and in every available vacant piece of city property. And now;
right now ; in the next twenty-five days.
Remember too, that the building up of a great industry like this
in Salem will bring glass factories and other enterprises that will fit
into the commercial and industrial life of the city.
There in scarcely a limit to the indirect henefitx.

Victory and peace are at the end

May Day will witness the greatest
demonstrations by Socialists that tha
world has ever seen. The demonstra

brate the one hundredth anniversary
of the birth of Karl Marx, the found
er of modern "scientific" Socialism
under whose banner ten million vot
ers are enrolled.

Marx, published several years ago,

i Karl Marx was born in the old
German town of Trier, May 5, 1818.
After graduating from the gymnasi
um of his native place he entered
the University of Bonn and after
spending a rather unprofitable year
went to Berlin in the fall of 1836. He
studied only a little more success
fully at Berlin than he had previous
ly done at Bonn. Independent study
outside of the university and his love
affair and secret engagement with
Jenny von Westphalen, his future
wife, distracted him from what
should have been his main interest.
Marx soon saw that the academic
career that he had planned for him
self was clearly out of the question
and an impossibility.
'lie then turned to journalism for
a living and became a contributor
to several political newspapers. Ab
solutism was In the saddle, however,
and he German authorities woul.1
not tolerate the opinions set forth
by the young radical. Paris became
his home, and there for some years
he continued to live in- exile with his
bride. In 1844 began the relatloi
between Marx and Fredrich EngeU.
which terminated only with the
death of the former.
The Prussian government caused
the removal of Marx from Paris be
cause of his articles concerning th
tyranny of the German princes, and
be went to Brussels, whence he was
expelled, returning to Paris after
the revolution of 1848. After a
short stay In Paris he removed to
Cologne and began to publish a radi
cal paper, but after having been
twice before the 'courts of law be
was expelled from the country. Re
turning to Paris again he was oblig
ed to move on and went to London
in 1849, where he remained for the
tost of his life.
In conjunction with his friend.
En gels, Marx, in 1847, drew up the
Communist Manifesto." vhich id
the earliest public declaration of In
ternational democratic Socialism. It
was addressed to the laboring class
es of all nations. In 18C4. at a
meeting of English and foreign
working-class delegates in London,
in support of the polish insurrection.
the "International," an association
of workingmen, was founded.
The "International" aimed at a re
construction of society on the bas:s
of labor and brotherhood. Throe
proposals were discussed. Baku
nine, the Nihilist, had published the
opinion that every social condition
must be destroyed before a new bo
ciety could be built up. The Italian
patriot, MazzinI, considered that re
form could be achieved only by mor
al means by educating the people
and enforcing the principle that jus
tice was a religious duty equally
binding on all classes. According
to Marx, a change for the better
could only be brought about by an
economic revolution. His theory of
Socialism was based on a material
istic and to a large extent scientifi
conception of society. Of the threi
ilval views, that of Marx was select
ed, and still forms the backbone of
The task that Marx set before him
self was to give a scientific basis to
Socialism, and to arouse the work
ers to what he regarded as their his
toric mission the inauguration of
the Socialist commonwealth. H!j
great book, "Das Kapital," is re
garded as "the Bible of the social
democrats." The first volume of
this work was published In 1867.
The second and third .volumes were
edited by Engels in 1885 and 1894.
