A FACTORY THAT
The fact that Salem is to have a potato flour, starch and
dextrine factory, as was stated under the Bits for Breakfast
heading in The Statesman of yesterday morning, is worthy
of more than passing notice
For such a factory, conducted by men who keep up with
the times, has great possibilities. There is a very wide range
of products based on potato starch and dextrine, all the way
up (or down) from the face powder for the ladies of the
country; a product of higher quality than can be produced
otherwise. And a great variety of pastes used in textile and
other mills. And many other uses, including preparations for
the kitchen, "where potato starches are better than com
The benefit to our men on the land will be the putting
of a substantial basis under the potato industry, making
potatoes in rotation schemes a reliable crop, year in and year
out; a very valuable one in years of shortage and consequent
JH' "For the factory will take the cull potatoes. Will make
them return larger values to the community than are repre
sented by the sales of the choice stock. r' v
The Salem district can produce a potato, that is specially

injlheult befori' the public service commission is that the
ccmiSSin cannot lawfully compel the hauling of the lime

according,to intricate rate making rules

.is a matter of voluntary managerial judgment on the part of
the railroad officials.
, U such a contention be upheld, it is a pity the railroad
officials could not have seen their way clear to granting the
.reduction voluntarily. Making it a special case, based on
t general public good, and not a precedent for other rate

' ' the state is doing a wonderful service; giving the farm
ers ; lime at a' much reducedcost ; giving them four months to
pay for it (only giving up their 2 per cent cash discount), and
charging them only 6 percent beyond the four months.
4 If no one throws a monkey wrench into the lime scheme,
the state will ere long be making it possible for farmers to
buy lime and PAY FOR IT AFTER ITS USE HAS BROUGHT
ADDITIONAL PRODUCTION SUFFICIENT TO MORE
THAN PAY FOR THE COST OF THE LIME.

tial development by securing still water in the - Willamette
from her water front to Wilsonville,1 giving her the cheapest
possible' ton-mile carrying cost ; '
'j Wth the shunting of her J products of the land and the
factories here onto barges, taken at a negligible per ton cost
to ocean going vessels- in Portland harbor and there trans
ferred directly to their holds.
It will be like putting the Pacific ocean alongside Salem's
water front, with only the difference of the slight cost of
barge transportation and transfer in Portland harbor.
It will be connecting Salem with every world harbor by
an all waiter route " -
And the same thing will be true of both banks of the
river all the way down to Wilsonville
And eventually all the way up to Eugene, because thai
is the natural thing to do, a thing that should have been done
long ago. In other words, our people and our government
have been slow, in this respect; slower than Germany-and
other European countries.
If the Willamette were the Rhine or the Elbe, it would
have had still water transportation for boats and barges this
tong time - '
Adding to the potential value of every acre of land and
every city lot in the whole great valley, by making it possible
to reach all the markets of the world with their products and
their wares at a lower per tcm-mile ' cost. f ,.;
"You will trouble me. unless I
see you out of this mess," Piggy
retorted, longing to get his hands
m the man who had caused it. Be
ing both unanalytical and inexper
ienced in armorous emotion, it did
not occur to him that she mani
fested neither the symptoms of
disappointed love nor the proverb
ial fury of a woman scorned. He
thought merely that she was a
game little sport who was taking
a severe shock uncommonly well.
"There must be something I can
"There's nothing anybody can
do now. Unless Perhaps you can
tell me where to go to find em
ployment? I don't know."
"Employment?" he echoed stu
pidly. "You? What kind of em
ployment?" "I might teach French. I speak
it well. And I paint pretty well.
I suppose I could do place cards
and lamp shades and things like
that. Or perhaps I might sell
things in a shop?"
Piggy was no connoisseur of
feminine apparel, but he did know
something about leather, and the
bag at her feet was not only ex
pensive, but seemed to harmonize
with the- rest of her belongings..
As he phrased it in his own mind,
she looked like a. million dollars.
"Well, we can't settle that
here," she interrupted. "I can't
go anywhere until I know how I'm
going to pay for it. I just gave
the last cent 1 have in the world to
that porter." Piggy gaped at her
incredulously and she gave a little
shrug, adding with a gleam of in
spiration: "Oh. of course, a pawn
shop! That's what one does first,
isn't it? Do you know of one near
"Rats! You can't go to a pawn
shop. I'll loan you all you need,"
Baid Piggy impulsively.
"I can't let you do that."
"Well, you can't turn yourself
loose in New York without any
money," he countered- "You might
why, anything might happen!
And you're not going to a pawn
shop either. Now you be sensible.
You don't know me, so you'll Just
have to take my word for it that
I'm all right. And I'm going to
make . sure you're taken care of
until you -can hear from your
friends. There aren't any women
in my family Just dad and me
so I can't take you homevery
well, but if you won't go to -a
hotel, let me take you te my aunt,
Mrs. Colton Dollard. If you don't
know who she is, you can look her
up in the social register."
: "Oh no; no!" -Again she shrank
a little. "You mustn't -I can't
you don't understand " When
she saw his astonishment, she con
trolled herself, adding more calm
ly: "You're very kind and I do ap
preciate it, but there are reasons
well. I can't explain. Hut I
can't go anywhere with you. : If
you really want to help me. you'll
just forget all about this and
"AH right." he responded
promptly. "111 forget it. As far
as I'm concerned it never hap
pened. But only on condition that
you'll let me loan ' you enough
money to see you through until
you can hear from your friends, or
else let 'me buy you a ticket back
to where you, came from."
She shook her head, turning her
face away. "I'm not going back.
can't. Icarae here to do some
thing, and I'm going to do it in
spite of of everything!"
"Bully for you!" saM Piggy
cheerfully. "Then that's settled.
The next thing Is to find out what
you'd better do meanwhile. Let's
go over to Sherry and find a cor
ner where we can talk. There
won't be anybody there at this
hour. You've had a Jolt, and - a
glass of wine will brace you up.
After a, while we'll ; have some
lunch. : Come on." f ; .''.; :i
Picking up her Eag. he led-the
way to the cabstand, and she fol
lowed. Neither .of them noticed
that a small, dark man who bad
been loitering near by while they
talked, apparently Idly watching
the changing crowds, came '.sud
denly to , life - and ; strode after
them, "nis brow farrowed by per
plexity.. He took the next hansom
after theirs and told the driveiKtf
When Piggy found himself
seated in the .hansom beside this
strange young woman he was con
scious of a certain surprise.. There
tofore, as has been said, women
had held no particular place in his
life, and even in daydreams he had
never pictured himself as a pos
sible squire of dames. Yet . here
he was to some extent espousing
the unknown cause of this, un
known. girl, having voluntarily and
insistently undertaken to protect
and finance her for how long a
time he could not even guess
However, he had done it not be
cause she was a girl, but because
in spite of that handicip she was
a thorough going little sport and
in hard luck. She had taken,
standing, what he imagined would
have been for most girls a knock
out blow. She.didn't even whimp
er about it. As a matter of fact, he
told himself, she d,idn't act like a
girl at all. Neither .making eyes
at him, nor assuming the con
sciously unsentimental manner of
the damsel aspiring to be regarded
as a possible pal, nor yet taking it
for granted by virtue ofher fem
ininity that it was his business as
a male to serve her, she seemed
quite simply and naturally to for
get him. Sitting in her corner of
the cab her brown eyes absently
fixed through her thick veil upon
the crowded panorama of the
streets, she retired within herself
as any fellow in trouble might
have done, and it was as a fellow
in trougle that Piggy yearned.. in
his own vernoeular, to give her a

or any indication of expecting any
thing of him, he might have taken
fright and turned shy and elusive
himself. Instead, she ignored his
presence, lost in the mystery of
her own thoughts, and they drove
the few blocks from the station to

Street and Fifth Avenue almost in

to be Intolerant in any way.
One of the big things in the
handling of the state lime, plant
under the egis of the revolving
fund law is the advantage to many
farmers in getting time to pay for
their lime. They get four months
now, without interest. They pay
6 per cent Interest after that.
They get 2 per cent discount for
ciish. . In due course of time there
should be a surplus created In the
revolving fund that will allow
farmers to get their lime and use
ft, and pay for it after they have
made more than enough money
y the use of it to pay for it. That
is, by the Increased production of
crops 'on their land. It is con
ceivable that this might require
a good sized sum to allow of sah
a long line of credits! But ij
might be arranged so that there
wonld be no possibility of the state
suffering, any losses through any
farmer never finally paying for

"Calamity howlers." What are
they? Ever hear of them? The
name started from the Populist
party in Kansas a few years ago.
They howled so incessantly and
persistently that their howls were
heard, not only throughout the
state of Kansas, but in several
neighboring states, and that
prince" of reformers, William Jea
ntUgs Bryan, took up the echo and
broadcast it throughout the na
tion. Another howler, editor of
a daily paper in Atchison, Kansas
was instrumental in breaking up
the worst political ring that ever
cursed a state. For that crime (?)
he was sentenced to eighteen
months in the state prison. After
serving his term in prison he
went and did some more howling,
md later published a history of
the Kansas and Missouri peniten
tiaries entitled "The Twin Hells."
Well, for three years they held
the reins of government In that
state, and brought about many
needed reforms. But through
threats, persecutions and the al
mighty dollar they were retired to
private life. But what happened?
After they were gotten out of the
way, their persecutors took up
lime, if they are to produce, or
continue to produce, paying crops.
There !s no chance of a dispute on
that point, and there will not be.
in a thousand years, or a million,
or ten million.
Speaking of tolerance, or intol
erance, again, a man came to The
Statesman office in a high slate
of excitement yesterday. A cer
tain newspaper had said there
were only 20,000 marchers in the
Hlan parade in Washington last
week, at the annual national con
vention of the Klan. The fact
was, he said, there were over 200.
000 by actual count, against 166,
ftOO last year. And he had a copy
of a big newspaper, the Fellowship
Forum of last Saturday (published
in Washington. D. C), to prove
it. But the Bits for Breakfast
man cannot work himself up to
a very high state of excitement
o.'er the matter. What's the par

Before You Invest
For the past two years whenever the question
of heat has come up for consideration in any
important Salem Building;, knd Business Men
made a thorough investigation of this all im
portant problem, considering all types of fuel
available in Salem both from the standpoint of
present cost and also of assurance of future
cost, and considered safe and efficient opera
tion, the very minimum of labor costs and the
best assurance of a well managed boiler plant,
invariably the IRON FIREMAN has been adopt
ed as the only burner that could give a satisfac
tory solution to all these problems.
When the question of heating the splendid
Y. M. C. A. building was considered by an able
group of business men all type i of burners and
fuel were considered, after writing to many
stoker users the decision was an IRON FIRE
MAN as the only burner that would do.
The Board of Regents of the State Normal
Schools, having at its command exact informa

most of the reforms-, that they
(the Pops) had started and put
them in their platforms. '
What about the political at
mosphere in-our nation today?
Are there' any reforms needed?
The progressives and the radical
republicans are at daggers points.
Senator Brookhart of Iowa was
kicked out of the senate last
spring because he would not be
ruled by the bosses. The farmers
and the others in that state re
turned the compliment by elect
ing him to the next congress by
a large majority. His life is now
threatened, and when he goes out
he has to have a body guard. He
spent less than-$1000 in his cam
paign. How does that compare
with the other crowd who spent
millions hi the primaries In Penn
sylvania and Illinois to elect their
candidates? Has there been any
assassins looking for their hides?
Secretary of the Treasury Mellon
thinks it was a legitimate trans
action. To be sure. For part of
his millions went into that slush
fund. Do we -want such men as
that to make laws for us? If
we do we just as well go to our
state prisons and asylumns and
pick out our candidates. They
are in the same class.
As long as the newspapers and
people shut up like clams and
say nothing, this corruption and
J rottenness will continue, and our
boasted liberties will become a by
word and farce. "Eternal vigilance
is the price of liberty." Nearly
two centuries ago that Irish pa
triot, Patrick Henry, uttered these
words: "Is life so dear, or peace
so sweet, as to be purchased at
the price of chains or slavery?
