Senator Pierce Would Build

Dr. S. J. Reiil. the Irish evangelist, told the business men pres-
erit at the Salem Commercial Club dinner yesterday that Salem should
become a linen center. j
He spoke; of the great wealth that would result.
. Dr. Reid ya3 probably told, by some Salem flax qpthusiast, after
'. his address, 'that at the Philadelphia Centennial in 1876, samples of
flax grown near Salem cainei into competition with flax from all the
f world J that the judges did not know where the samples before them
' were from; that they judged by points nine points; and the Oregon
flax fiber WON ON ALL NINE POINTS.
It was the best flax grawrj in the world in every single partic
ular. ' ' . ' ;-' -I : "' .
At. that time, a great Belfast, Ireland, manufacturer of linen
products made the statement; that no other country could come up to
Oregon, and that he could take two pounds of the Marion county
fiber and SPIN A TIIREAD THAT "WOULD REACH AROUND THE

world. J'-' -.)''''"'.
;. And there is no good reason why the linen industry should not
be developed here now. j
;v It is the time of all times, with so many of the linen growers
and manufacturers of Belgium and Ireland footloose, after the war.
- What Salem needs is a man with organizing talent who has the
. . vision. , '' ..-
..' The money could be had! here, to back such a man.
' Either this sort of a man, or one with ample capital to gather
and assemble the talent and the machinery and hook up the factory
to the soil. "... 1

Leading members of the two houses of the legislature in special
session say they are going to make it short and snappy toget
through this week. The third house is yet to be heard from, to say
nothing of the Fourth Estate, and the people interested in the var
ious angles of the fish 4nd name muddle.

Senator Pierce claims the grange, the
farmers union and some other or

The measure would not apply to

Puts the taste appeal in any meal
Del Monte Catsup sharpens dull appetites. It
makes you hungry puts more genuine enjoy
ment into every-day meals. It is the one relish
that always pleases because its distinctive flavor
blends with and improves almost any other food.
That s why Del Monte Catsup is preferred by
particular people everywhere as a table relish
and as a cooking auxiliary.

Jefferson Review in which the legis
