While there has been much
discussion regarding the growing
of flax in thlj part of the Wil
lamette yalley, and the expressed
opinion by Irish manufacturers
that j Oregon flax compares most
favorably with that grown any
where, it is not generally known
that the Willamette valley grows
the finest hemp in the world.
Hemp Is a sort of cousin to flax.
It is of a coarser quality of fiber,
but thei same retting tanks that
are used with flax can be used
in retting hemp. The same break
ing machinery is used for both,
but for scutching larger machin
ery Is needed for hemp.
. : Lake Labish Grows It
Several , farmers living on the
Hays holdings near Lake Labish
grew( heinpUast season. It was
retted at the. penitentiary and
samples 'were 6hown at the last
From the regular stock ,at the
penitentiary plant, D. R. Moses
of Gervais sent samples to two
of the j largest manufacturing
plants in the east, asking for quo
tations and an expression as to
the quality of the Oregon hemp.
The firm of Smith & Dove Man
ufacturing company of Andover,
Mass., manufacturers of linen
threads, yarns and twines, wrote
"We have received your sam
ples of water retted American
hemp referred to in youra of Oc
tober 13 and we wish to say that
it is the best piece of water ret
ted American hemp that we have
ever ; seen. You are to be con
gratulated on your success in ret
ting this fiber.
Market Ordinarily Easy
"In ordinary times I would sav
that yotf could easily market E0
to 100 tons a year of hemp of
this kind, if you could produce it
to sell in competition -with the!
Another firm to which Mr.
Moses sent his samples of hemp
was the Linen Thread company of
New York city. The samples
were also from regular stock
made at. the flax plant of the pen
itentiary. This firm wrote:
"We have inspected samples of
hemp fiber mentioned in your let
ter of the 14th. and find the same
very well handled, strong, aad
as a matter of fact, the best hemp
fiber we have ever'seen produced
in the United States."

The names of the growers of
this finest hemp in the United
States ore L. O. Harold, B. W.
Gasco and W. W. Wienert. all liv
ing north of Salem. The hemp
was prepared by Robert Craw
ford, who was until recently head
of the flax plant at the peniten
It Is understood that not long
ago six tons. of this fine hemp
straw was taken to the flax plant
ot the penitentiary to have work
ed Into I a product, in order that
growers could figure on their re
turns. This was brought In the
first week of October.
It is all right to write poetry
about the poppy in Flanders
fields, but it is wise to pay trib
ute at a distance and with the
wide sea between. The only rea
son they grow there Is because
the Flanders farmers cannot set
rid of them. We 'may continue
to write poetry about the poppy,
but we must not plant it, as by
common consent it is a nuisance.
