Tha Statesman of "Wednesday morning referred to, the
tariff - protection under the present law, saying : ' k '
'In the first place the 4ya.rn&' will be protected 10c a pound if
Tnot finer than 12 lea, and if finer than 12 and not finer than 60
lea, a half cent for each lea or part thereof in excess of 12. The
yarn is the first product of the spinning of the fiber." It is what
most of the, American linen and twine thread mills are now im-
porting Jfrom abroad, mostly -from Europe. This would make
?a 50 lea yam pay; a duty of 29 cents a pound. That is the kind
prDeimel will use in his proposed American factory, which he
prill locale in Salem, when he can get suitable yarns in sufficient
quantities. Above 60 lea yarns the duty is 35 cents a pound, with
a cents ? more if boiled and 5 cents more if bleached ordyed.
Twines are yarns carried further in manufacturing and they
are protected 184 cents a pound for coarse and three-quarters
..j of a cent a Jjound additional fori twines made of yarns above 11
lea for the excess above 11; and finer' than 60 lea, 56 cents a
pound, with; the' same, additions for. boiling and bleaching or
- dyeing. ' That is surely 'some' protection. It explains whv Dr:
r Deimel wan W to weave his linens for the 1 American market in
f wnereine xioer iiax can be produced and pulled cheaply, with-
in a very short time. The great wonder is that it has not gotten
under way s6oner. The lea is the measure of fineness for yarn
made from" the fiber of flax, cotton, silk, juteramie, hemp or
4 other plants jcarrying fiber." ; t Y.
And while Congressman Fordney was at the task of giving
'the United States tariff provisions that would enable the devel-
opment of a great linen industry in this country, he made it good
- and strong. v j He permitted no half way measures. -
A ' Flax straw is taxed at $2 a ton. Every process of manu
facturing th$' straw, is protected.1 The fiber is taxed 2 cents a
pound. Thei wader has noted, above, the rates on yarns and
twines. The highest rate provided, and 10 per cent additional, is
placed upon fish nets made from seine twines. Every woven fab
ric made from flax is well protected and there are hundreds of
Uhem.. The plainest woven fabrics are taxed 35 per cent ad
valorem, the; finer fabrics 40 to 50 per cent, and the still finer
5 per cent- - I . '-:-':-,-,
, i. And Canada,'under a new law,"prqtects its linen makers tum
ping out such fabrics as carrying a 55 per cent duty here only 15
per cent. That helps explain the movement from, that country
across the line to this country. - - i s
. f Y The Miles mill will not have to confine itself to twine. It
can make yarn and sell it on a world market, and have protec
tion to the extent of 35 cents a pound, with 7 cents a pound
, additional for boiling and bleaching. There is a world market
for yarns., Tiiey are as staple as wheat A manufacturer has
. estimated thit fiber , can . be turned into yarns and then -into
twines or threads for around 15 to 20 cents a pound. Does the
f reader note what that means, with thje present protective
duties f , Y ;Y' - ..-Y 1 : j-: ,-:
The state flax plant at the Oregon penitentiary could carry
its operations a single step further, from the fiber to" the yarn,
4and perhaps make, the institution self supporting, without inter
Bering in any way with any factory to be built here; but on the
itontrary helping those'to be built or in prospect, for they all
rmust have yarns, and the wide world market heeds yarns, All
the linen factories in the eastern part of the United States need
yarns ; are buying them from abroad, mostly from Europe. ;

" ; Do you get the vision? Y; Y : Y r -
1 - And the Miles mill will be firmly on the ground, with hun
; adreds of things it may make, besides yarns and twines. It is
. only a step from the spinning of yarns to any one of the hun
i - dredsof articles on the markets made from flax fiber. ? Every

AIR MAILS AND STORMS
It is declared that the storms of
winter will not knock out the air
maH. Blizzards, and snow storms,
and frigid weather will come but
the preparation is declared to be
so thorough that there will be no
bad effects. Yy
Y Those whose responsibility it Is
to set the air mail through on
scheduled time, regardless of wea
ther, have left no stone unturned
to guarantee ; regular service this
winter. Cold weather, In itself,
is not a serious menace to the avi
ator, for he faces It even in mid
summer at the ' righ altitudes
where flying is safest.
But snowstorms, blizzards and
deep snow on the landing fields
are ere rpresent dangers of winter
flying, especially at night. It is
these the air mail service has pre
pared to meet and conquer. Y
Skies, instead of wheels or pon
toons, will be affixed to , the air
planes to make the landing safe
in the deepest snow. Pilots will
wear a new 'monkey suit," fur-
lined," that will cover them from
head to foot and assure more com
fort than the old suits heated by
electricity, never entirely satisfac
tory. Every cockpit will be heat
ed from the engine by a new ar
rangement. WHERE THEY FAILED 1
The vote in the last presidential
election was 62.8 per cent of the
total eligible vote. The people
of the north .roted fairly welL It
Is down in the south where the ne
groes are not allowed to vote that
the vote fell off so terribly. There
is a further reason in the south
and that is the contests are in the
primaries.' There Is no contest In
any election. Y Y
. Voting is a privilege, f . There is
no way to force it. We must sim
ply educate the people up to want
ing to vote. It is one of our great
est questions. In the recent elec
tion an analysis of figures is inter
esting. Indiana came across with
83.2 per cent. Kansas shows 80.1
per cent. West Virginia has 76.3
per cent; Minnesota, ' 83.Z per
cent; North Dakota, 72.1 per cent;
New Hampshire, 70.1 perj cent;
Rhode Island, 69.6 per cent; Del
aware, 69.4 per cent; ! Missouri,
68.8 per cent; Iowa, 67.5 per cent;
and Illinois, 66.5 per cent. At the
low end of the scale are South
Carolina witbr8 per cent of the
eligible voters going to the polls;
Georgia, 10.1 per cent; Mississippi
with 10.8 per cent; Louisiana with
12.5 per cent; Virginia with 18.4
per cent; Alabama with 17.5 per
cent; Arkansas with 20 per cent;
Tennessee ; with 23.7 per cent;
Florida with ,2 5.1 per cent; Texas
with 29.6 per cent, and Arizlna
with 36.9 per cent. New York is
fair with 60.5 per cent, and Penn
sylvania is not quite so good with
54.6 per cent.
A careful scrutiny of every de
partment of government -indicates
that President. Coolidge has the
hearty cooperation of his adminis
trative associates. In every de
partment there is a demand for
economy. There is a figuring to
see who can make. the most sav
ing. 1 ;
The public will not take kindly
however to the proposition to in
increase the postage rates but the
postage rates are high enough and
there ought to be more economy
In that department Instead of add
ing to it. Of course it is develop
ing but everybody writes , letters
and everybody lays postage. How
ever with that' exception every
branch of the government is doing
its best to lower taxes. Instead of
raising them, y ;
CUTTING THE WASTE
Henry Ford does not make
much fuss about his economies but
he has them just the same. Every
day they are studying new econ
omies and they are developing
their business largely through
economical management.-" , 1
Henry Ford has recently gone
Into the railroad business. The
road he secured was practically
junk, and losing money. He not
only put.lt on its feet but started
by reduced rates. Hd has done It
by the use of increased efficiency

Need of Crop, Probable De
velopment and the 1925
, Market. Topics
The Polk county economic con
ference was rich In possibilities
tor the farmers of that county and
also the proceedings "are mighty
interesting reading for farmers
everywhere. The Statesman will
undertake to give a report of the
committees from day to day. Be
low is given the report of the flax
committee which Is important just
at this time. , w - (
There is" approximately 60,
000,000 worth of linen products
manufactured from flax fiber im
ported into the United States an
nually. On these importations
there is a 30 per cent duty. In
the Pacific Northwest there Is
used annually approximately $1,
000,000 worth of salmon twine
which Is also a flax product. At
the present time all of this twine
comes from Europe. -Prospective
Development of Indus
try in Oregon
There is a move under way at
the present time for the estab
lishment of a flax fiber spinning
mill In Salem which will cost ap
proximately 8150,000. According
to B. C. Miles, of Salem, who is
promoting this enterprise, $100,
000 in stock has already been sub
scribed., Present plans contem
plate that this -mill ...will ' manu
facture salmon twine tor which
there is a million dollar market
In the Northwest. " It is expected
that the establishment of such a
mill will provide a stable market
for flax fiber produced in the Wil
lamette valley. Such a market
has been lacking in the past.
While the outlook for the en
terprise is good ; it Is , generally
recognized that a spinning mill
might be considered as an exper
imental manufacturing enterprise.
- ' Purpose of This Committee .
This committee believes in view
of the foregoing facts that the
flax fiber industry offers excel
lent' possibilities as a profitable
farm crop in addition to supplying
an .industry which will provide
employment for people who will
consume the products of the soil.
We deem, it our purpose, therefore,
to determine - a program of flax
production and marketing which
will permit the development, ex
pansion and continuance of this in
dustry along economic lines.
- Market for Flax in 1025
The Immediate market outlet
for flax straw for 1925 is through
the flax plant of the state of Ore-
son at -Salem.-. -This plant can
handle 4000 tons of flax straw
The approximate price for 1925
Will be 322 per ton for 20 inch
mowed flax, $28 per ton for 20
to 28 inch pulled flax and $38
per ton for 30 inch pulled flax or
over. Seed ia available for $2.00
. While it Is expected that this
market outlet will expand, this ex
pansion will be slow and present
acreage should be kept within the
limits of the present market out
Flax produced for fiber which
Is less than 20 Inches in length
at present prices cannot economi
cally be marketed for its fiber
content. It is therefore, the rec
ommendation of this committee
that flax less than 20 inches in
length should 'be harvested for
Cost of Producing Flax
The total cost of producing an
acre of flax in Polk - county ' is
$42.50. Of this amount $10 Is
for hauling a two-ton crop to mar
ket at Salem. Before Polk county
can compete advantageously with
other sections more favorably sit
uated a retting and Bcutching
plant , should be established here
to eliminate excessive hauling
Costs. " -y ' - i, '
Development of Industry
Last year there was 1147 tons
of flax straw delivered to the
state plant at Salem. Of this
amount Polk county produced 351
tons or 32 -per cent and Marion
county produced 795 tons or 67
per cent. : ,. ., -
In view of experimental nature
of the flax production for fiber
we recommend that 15 test plots
be planted on various soil : types
in ' the . county to determine where
flax can be successfully grown.
We also recommend that a flax
demonstration tour be held during
the growing season under the su
pervision of the Extension Service
of the Oregon Agricultural Col.
lege.- ; Farmers should plant flax
cautiously to avoid losses.
.i,: Growing Recommendations
1. Flax is - not hard on the
land." Actual analysis made by
the government shows that dollar
for dollar In ; value flax : takes
slightly less fertility from the soil
than does wheat.
2. Flax in order to be success
ful, should be grown In a clover
rotation. Perhaps . a three year
rotation would be best.
S.r'Flax should be planted on
the best valley lands which are
fertile and well drained.' In order
to be profitable at prevailing pric
es a yield approaching two tons
per acre or more Is necessary and
only the most fertile-well-drained
lands will produce this tonnage.
4. Clean land free from weeds
is essential to flax production. No
foul land - should ie planted to
flSX. - "
5. It Is advisable to consult
experienced growers before plant
ing flax to learn the best methods
of preparing seed bed and sowing,

Ox Gall Treatment
Ends Liver Trouble
Overcomes body poison that
cause diseases of heart,
kidneys and high blood
. i ; ; pressure ,v -
All the blood in our bodies passes
through the liver every 15 min
utes.- The liver Is 'the blood's
purifier. . - -
: Our blood Is constantly poison
ed by body toxins formed in food
waste, and when the liver becomes
weak, or torpid. It cannot perform,
its work of purification and our
systems - are at once tainted by
impure blood. These are the poi
sons that, if not destroyed by the
liver, cause diseases of the heart,
kidneys, blood vessels and create
premature old age.J
Nature gives . quick, warning of
a torpid liver. .You have sudden
sick headaches, dizzy spells; your
stomach is acid from sour bile,
your skin turns sallow, blotchy.
Doctors know the liver cannot
be regulated by drugs, but a safe
Nature substance has been discov
ered which will act directly on
the liver. The discovery is purl-
fled oxgall. .
Get from your druggist a pack
age of Dioxol. Each tablet eon-
tains ten drops of purified ox gall.
In 24 hours the poison toxins will
be removed. Your liver will be
regulated. Blood purification
will begin. Sallow skin will clear.
You will feel so much better you
will know you have found the
cause of your ill health. Dioxol

Dynamite and nitro-glycerine ara
