Editor. . ..May 18.
Dear Sir: ," I notice in , ..this
morning's Statesman you have is
sued. in big letters the following:
Review' Endorses Mark McCail-
ister." Where , did you get it?
This is an -error.-1 have not men
tioned Mark MeCallister in any
issue of the ' Review, and I don't
like to t. misquoted. I -did: en
dorse Mark Paulson of Silverton,
and expect to support the nomi
nees of the " Republican party.
Yours truly, f
H. D. Mars.
When questioned last evening,
Mr. MeCallister stated that the
clipping had appeared in the Stay-
ton Mail. " ' -
An editorial writer in the Portland Oregonian has finally
found out that the Willamette valley may have a great crude
druir' industry - . , -r
But he writes as though he fears we rhight. have a boom
in that industry, to the injury of other farming interests.
He need not be afraid of this.1 There are many things to
be done before there can be a crude drug boom
, And , the first thing should be experimental crude drug
gardens at tne vrejsuu jrvK-u' wucui..., vuv -
must be cured properly, as well as grown In the right ways.
ijio farmer is going to grow crude drugs till he knows all
'about the game- . : '
But it' would be a great game for western Oregon ; a
great industry, for we have the right climatic and soil con
ditions. Nature has done her part. - . , ,
V It is possible'to make" the crude' drug industry here one
of the biggest ana oest paying unes in yregon.

It is perfectly ytrue that many

They, find that, tracts which were
solemnly set aside as factory dls
tricts now Insist upon becoming
