to a feverish pitch of excitement
as the Pirates, National league
champions, prepared to meet the

Julius Meier, Mercantile Mgnate,
Optimistic Over. Future
. "The flax industry means more
to the state of Oregon from a
world standpoint than any other
industry," was the declaration
made by Julius L. Meier, owner of
one ? of the largest mercantile
establishments on the Pacific
coast and a director in the new
Oregon Linen mills, in an address
before the Chamber of Commerce
at their first weekly luncheon of
the present season.
Mr. Meier declared that the
$600,000 represented In the new
mill is "only a marker in the mil
lions of dollars in flax to come."
Indeed, he predicted that "we will
live to see millions in flax." -
There is an opportunity for an
increased payroll in Oregon
through the industry, in the opin
ion of Mr. Meier, . and also an ex
cellent chance to distribute an
Oregon product throughout the
According to a linen expert
from Belfast with whom he was
fpoaking, Mr. Meier said the Wil
lamette valley is on "the right
track'.' in manufacturing lower
ends such as towels and such
poods of a coarser quality.
Mr. Meier assured the Chamber
that Portland would back up the
mill by contributing her quota to
ward the financing of it. He said
he would work personally to per
suade residents of Portland to
contribute their quota, and he
asked the merchants of Salem to
lend their "moral support" to ob
taining the financial support of
Portland. He suggested that mer
chants, when ordering goods,
write Inviting those with whom
they do business to subscribe to
th,P mill.
The flax exhibit at the: fair,
through permission granted by the
ttate fair board with the sanction
cf Governor Pierce,' will be taken
to Portland, where Mr. Meier will
display it in one of his large
Show windows. Mr. ( Meier -declared
that he would do all he
could in furthering the causeof
the mill, and will help the public
ity of the industry by contributing
one of his windows for the pur
pose and by obtaining notice in
'.he Portland papers.
Governor Pierce who was also
at the luncheon, told the Chamber
that 400 tons of flax are . now
ready for scutching, and the work
vlll be started today at the Miles
linen mill. The governor de
clared this to be "the opening of
a tremendous Industry in Oregon"
even asserting that he believes
the flax industry is the biggest In
dustry that has ever been started
in this state. He declared that he
believed that plenty pf flax could
be supplied to-run the new milk
But he also advised that the farm
ers grow the flax in small fields,
as the industry is a special one,
and the farmers must be taught
the business completely.
