WOOL IS MILLED
' OFJ THIS COAST
Address on Condition of In
dustry Given Rotarians
by Mr. Bishop
Nearly one-third of the 35,
000,000 pounds of wool produc
ed upon the Pacific j coast are
manufactured along" the coast, C.
P. Bishop told members of the Ro
tary club at the luncheon at the
Marion hotel Wednesday. Of the
13 woolen mills in this district
six are in Oregon. .
The big woolen mill ' near LOng
Beach. Calif., is one of the latest
equipped in the country, due to its
having been burned recently and
rebuilt with all the latest machin
ery installed. The Portland mill
has an annual output of nearly
$1,500,000. he' said. The Oregon
Wooster mill, also in Portland,
makes yarns that are used in
manufacturing bathing suits .and
sweaters. Pendleton has the only
mill of its nature in the' country,
the speaker said, and devotes Its
entire output to the manufacture
of fancy Indian robes and blan
kets. Other mills along the coast
are located at Eureka, Eugene.
Stayton, Salem, "Oregon City and
Brownsville. Washington mills
are at Washougal and Seattle
Claim to the oldest mill is held
by that at Oregon City, which has
been In continuous operation ever
since the late '60s. In speaking of
the Brownsville mill, Mr. "Bishop
said that after a' varied history it
had been rejuvenated. All are in
a peculiar situation he said, in
that- all are well-financed and
well managed and were in a pros
- Prior to 1890 practically all the
mills were built by promoters, Mr.
Bishop said, but all; have finally
been put upon a solid foundation.
In closing he said that the coun
try was destined for wool manu
facturing andthat a ready market
was assured the Pacific coast, es
pecially in Siberia and Russia.
