a Will Eugene outgrow Salem
oecause she now has a municipal
ly owned power plant? Statistics
read to members of the Rotary
dub at their luncheoa Wednesday
noon by W. M. Hamilton, .mem
oer of the dub and head, of. the
Sal en ; branch ot .the ,4 Portland
Electric Power 4 company would
show that Eugene is paying more
rather thatl i less - for her power
belfeTe and some
people pretend ' to - beliere, said
Mr. HamUton, 'that cheap power
is a very, If not the most, im
portant and - essential resource
and facility to all Industries."
But from a surrey ' of t 8 5 .9 8 4
establishments made by the U. S.
department of the Interior it Is
seen that o'iilyM.B per cent of the
cost of production is the ; power
used. Mr. .Hamilton showed that
eren should a reduction of 1 5 per
cent In the .cost of power be . made,
the difference in ost of. produc
tion wouldl pot be jtteater than
one half of one per oeiit. , t.. .. -.
Thus, . Mr.i Hamilton : brought
home the fact, that cost of power
does not materially Influence the
establishment and .maintenance of
industries as s extensively as some
people would believe.. :
Quoting ..ftorn Claude Rorer,
president of the Oregon Bankers
association, Mr. Hamilton assert
ed that the flre factors necessary
to - production ; are r an "adequate
supply of raw material, a reason
ably certain market, a eatis?actory
supply "of labor; satisfactory living
conditions for labor and adequate
tr2sportat o$ lacilttiesv'.'
' rearing that the costof . raw
mat'.s is 57 per cent of the
total "rilues, of r the finished", prod
uct, Mr.? Hamilton continued:
"Supporting this , statement is
the fact that: the Oregon Pulp &
Paper Co.,! ; the Western . .Paper
Converting Co. the various can
ning companies, in Salem and the
linen companies, chose Salem as a
location for these plants primarily
because of the availability of the
raw materials needed in their
plants, and, .secondly i. because of
the favorable labor conditions in
Salem. ; j, . .,-,, , , .
"Persons . .liavincr no , income
from investments and the. dema
gogue politicians disclaim long
and loud against the. prof it made
In the power business: as though
it were a sinful thing to do., and
say that the government, owned
plants would; eliminate these aw
ful profits and sell the power at
wnat tney call 'cost. 5 1
"Our socialistic friends state
mai , government owned f power
plants will attract industries to a
community by selling power at so-
