HOW FINE 13 OUR FLAX FIBER?
V THe fact that the beginnings are being made of work that
Will lead to the making of Saleni the Belfast of North America
is sufficient excuse, if excuse were needed, to discuss in these
columns the wonderfully interesting features of the miracle plant
fiber flax, which by soil and sunshine and showers is produced
In the Salem district from the seed in 70 to 90 days, and yields
a fihr flint Wnviri intn linen will outlast the life of the weaver
indefd, under favorable conditions, will last thousands of
yearsf will in constant use last hundreds of years, as many
possessors of articles made from flax and handed down in fam
ilies for generations, will testify. There are many articles made
from flaxy in Salem homes, that come down from Revolutionary
times, when the patriotic armies under George Washington were
uniformed in home-spun made from the flax fiber the produc
tion of which was general in American homes; a practice that
persisted up to jth'etime of the youth of our fathers and mothers,
and longer' '$P?A4'': , . ' '
The Slogan .editor, of .The Statesman printed a number of
years ago, and haa repeated many times, the statement of the
fact that a sample of fiber made from flax grown near. Turner,
Oregon, seven miles from Salem, took the world prize at the
Philadelphia Centennial in 1876, on all nine points, including
length, strength; lustre, pliability, etc., etc., the judges being
unanimous in their verdict;! and none of them knowing the
country or, district of origin of any of the samples submitted in
-the contest- . ' "V'V- ' V i.iiUl-Xi" -.,
And the statement that a tfeitast linen manuiaciurer wno
was theresaid at that time that he could take two pounds of
ihevOregon flaxfiberand spin a thread that would reach around
the world 1 . . ; " .,.
-... :-:And every time the Slogan editor has printed that state'
inent he has wondered if it were true
' Wondere4 if the 'Belfast man might have -not been "draw
ing the long bow,?' or if he did
instead of two pounds." '
, Well, Alfred S. Moore of Belfast, in his authoritative book,
"Linen," published in 11)22, says: - .
1 "The late Lord Kelvin, in his arithmetic, stray 1
copies of which are yet extant in Ulster, tells of the 1
. - skill oO girl, Catherine Woods, in his native place, 1
fBallynahmch, County Down. When about thirteen
years of age she spun a hank of linen yarn, of 12
cuts, each cut 120 threads, and eadb thread two and ' -
-. a Bajf yards -weighing altogether only, 10 grains,
which was at the rate of 700 hanks to the poind.
The extreme fine quality of this yarn may be
'judged when he estimated that 1 lb. of it would
" ? stretch out 1432" miles, or from London to Berlin."
: The same author, m the book quoted above, writing on tne
fiber of the flax planVsays : ' ' '

DAUGHERTV STILL FIGHTING
.The Oregon Statesman still be
lieves that Attorney. General
Daugherty should have resigned
and saved t the president, embar
rassments A cabinet position i is
a -delicate and peculiar thing. The
minute a man is out of harmony
with his chief and the minute he
causes annoyance In the adminis
tration, that moment he should
get out. ,
It is not customary for presi
dents to keep in their cabinets men
whose attitude and conduct in
matters of supreme importance are
adverse to the principles of their
chief, of their party and of their
country, ftfr. Daugherty is indict
ed under the above statement, and
it Is up to him to - either obtain
the explicit and public approval of
his chief or Immediately resign.
However, the fight, on Daugher
ty; Is contemptible, and there is a
strong reaction all over the coun
try. The divorced wife of a dead
man is bailed as a star-witness,
and everything she does indicates
studied maliciousness. The other
witness against Daugherty is a
man who was tried for murder,
who has been an adventurer all
his life, who does not know what
it is to be out of trouble,, and is
now under two indictments. If
there ever was a despicable man
in the world whose testimony
ought .not to be received against a
decent man, that man Is Gaston B.
Means. No man in public life has
had such unscrupulous, despicable
assailants ' as Daugherty. and If
Senator Wheeler: ' had any con
science he would not give credence
to their testimony. Neither" one
of these malicious witnesses really
connect Daugherty with anything.
They deal In Inuendoes and they
lay everything on a dead man.
How a sensible man like Senator
WMeeler can glory In such testi
mony Is more than we can see.
A NEWSPAPER CHANGE
Frank Munsey seems to have
slackened a bit in his newspaper
pace. He talks about the biggest
of any men in the country,- but he
has 'just eold his most Important
newspaper. The New York Herald
has been purchased by the New
Tork " Tribune. What, a' world of
newspaper ' history this does re
call. .: .'. V ' '
For years, really through three
generations, the New York Herald
was an outstanding publication, a
great money maker, and Influen
tial. All of its beneficiaries died
and the paper fell into hard lines.
Frank Munsey tried to restore it.
but evidently was unable to do so.
The New York Tribune was the
political Bible for many years. It
hag'been just as much of a news
paper, if not more, since Greeley's
day. It has always2 held respect,"
but nobody ever placed any money
on it as a winner. However. It is
a tgreat .newspaper, one of. the
greatest in the country, and the
name Herald-Tribune will recall
two great, newspaper properties
two great newspaper personalities.
The - new name Is cumbersome.
however, and the Herald should
be dropped. There Is no way In
the world to perpetuate the name
of the newspaper.
THE NEW TREASURER
Governor Pierce acted wisely in
appointing a new treasurer, quick
ly. If the governor had filled all
his places quickly there would not
be one-tenth the trouble there is
now.. , As It Is, a few men will be
greatly disappointed- but fthey. - will

against the governor Jefferson

In a manner that leaves him a sin
gularly free hand, and we bespeak
for 'him, although of opposite po
litical faith, a fair chance for his
white alley. Oregon cannot afford
to have Its officials hounded and

yet that as astute a politician as
he would be led into a third party.
It means that strong will is no
longer curbed by the situations.
La Follette is the most wilful man
in . the world, but has steadily
avoided the third party. He has
always believed that he could work
better with the Republican party,
although out of harmony with it.
. ,La Follette was doubtless angry
ai the refusal to make him chair
man of the appropriations com
mittee. He earned the place, but
his republican colleagues refused
to give it to him. Since that time
he has been very bitter. If La
Follette did run, it would be sim
ply for revenge and not for a hope
of making a permanent third
party. He has been a sick man for
a long time, and it may be his
vision has been dimmed.
WOMEN AND RADICALS
The current German Independ
ent, a great magazine by the way,
has a long article about the soviet
and the bolshevik making prog
ress In the women's clubs. It
points out unmistakable evidence
that there Is an adroit and syste
matic campaign being made to fur
ther sovietism in America through
the women's clubs.
On the other hand the DAR of
Oregon, composed of the highest
class women In the United States,
has started a determined warfare
against propaganda literature cal
culating to undermine our institu
tions and cause trouble in America.'
The Oregon women are planning
a vigorous 'campaign and they
should encourage the women in
other' clubs in America in this
cause. Women's clubs have come
to be so influential that the temp
tation to use them for unworthy
purposes is strong, and only the
determination of the most far-
seeing and patriotic can prevent
insidious propaganda being given
to the membership of the clubs.
It is time for the women to be
aroused on this subject and to in

At 7:40 yesterday morning State
Treasurer Hoff passed away. It
was really the end of a great
tragedy. Mr. Hoff hag been an
outstanding figure in republican
politics for some years. His elec
tion, as treasurer came as a reward
of merit. His health was gone
wherl he entered the office.
- Treasurer -Hoff - was 'hounded
with malice up to this time un
heard of fn Oregon politics, and
many people believe that the char
acter assassins who attacked him
so viciously are responsible for his
death. It is known that after
these attacks he always had a re
lapse. Mr. Hoff was unable to
personally conduct his office, .but
the office was well run. He had
The outstanding thing of it all
la that Mr. Hoff was hounded to
his death by character' assassins,
by men who wanted to put across
their own mlschievlous ideas.
There used to be a tradition
that a new member of the senate
was to be seen largely, and not
heard in the first two years, and
not much after that. Gradually
this was cut down until it was left
as a single year of probation. A
young fellow named Dill, sent to
the senate in Washington, has
shattered the precedent.nlirejy:

Strange Story Started
Two and one-half centuries 'ago
in Italy, a plague broke out at
the time of the opal's popularity.
One of the victims, wearing an
opal-set ring, was dying- It was
observed that his ring was unus
ually brilliant. When he died a
few hours later, the opal became
dull. It seemed to convince every
one that the opal caused the death
and thereafter any wearer of opal
would be unlucky. In reality, the
change in temperature caused by
death affected the ". brilliancy of
the opal, causing it to become
dull. It was not until recently
that the ridiculous superstition
was disregarded, and opals again
worn. It is October's birth stone.
The age of Napoleon in French
history was a time of the wearing
of exquisite jewelry of an elabor
