Zatere at the Poetofftce In Salem,
The loyal citizens of Salem who have undertaken to put
over the proposition for the second linen mill in thi3 city are
deserving of all praise ' '. j " . 1 ' ' ' : - ;, j i
' Because they are serving their city in tfie most import
ant constructive way it could possibly be served at the pre
sent time, for their success will well nigh fix Salem as the
fine lirfen center of North America j H ji ; lj j ;i I
And they are doing more. They are serving their state
by hastening the establishment
dustrial development in Oregon
And still more: They
hastening the time of the
States in flax and linen products, keeping $100,000,000 a year
at home, and more and more as the country grows. Nor need
the market be confined to this country We can compete
with the world, on more than equal terms. I j i
There will be no praise too high for these patriotic hust
lers : 'i i " !'!'."!;; ; j in !;! !.;' ;
. And they should be received with open arms.
Every one in any way interested in Salem should whole
heartedly speed to their aid. I h ; j '
'Representative Hawley, of Oregon, ranking Republican
member of the ways and means committee, who! has been in
New, York recently, making a thorough study of the; admin
istrative laws and the way they work out in actual practice
at that great port, will map out a program for consideration
-by the committee when it convenes in September or October
ahead of the next regular session. Chairman Green, of the
committee, who is on his wayito Europe, where he will spend
several weeks, goes primarily to study; the tax question, but
intends to give attention also to European tariff systems and
the way in which they are-administered. It is through an in
tensive study of our own administrative weaknesses however,
that reform and revision inmethods'of admmfetration-in this'
"country must come,- and Representativedreenlias gone about
that systematically and thoroughly. Mr. Hawley favors con
sideration of this subject by congress next winter, and he is
wise enough to see that with prompt and proper reform in
these administrative features, the existing tariff law can be
better enforced, more revenue collected, under valuation (Pre
