It will stabilize potato growing. It will not be a hit-and
miss crop. There will be no failures. . . . f i "
This' will establish a regular demand, for potatoes of qual
ity fed into the markets as they are needed, in sacks branded
and the brands made true as to quality
And this will establish remunerative prices, taking one
year after another.. ''-"'"" if-:';" ". ';i
V:; In these ways there will be built up such a' reputation that
there will be a constantly increasing demand, in order to make
room for more acreage and more growers. " ; . ! " .
Hundreds qf thousands of dollars a year, can thus be added
to the value of our potato crop, and there will be pride, profit
and pleasure in potato planting and production in this district.
Our growers will get above the dead line of mere competition
in the potato markets. iThey will have and supply a special
and expanding market of their own."
FISH MONEY STINKS
'' The people of Oregon are tired: of the, fish fight in the
legislature every two years. They showed it in their vote last
November. ; They knew what it was about V
- y And every member of the 'legislature knows what it is
'about. ; . " . "
' Restore the natural right of fishery! to the people of
Oregon,"and there will be no more fish fights. The way to do
that is to clean out aU the fish Wheels and fixed gear, and
give the commercial fishing industry a chance to expand.
.V.-As Jong as there is a singe special privilege license, a
single license for fixed gear, there will be a fish fight. The
owners will fight for their special privileges, which should
never have been granted.
Their money stinks. In the old days of .Turkey, under the
murderous and corrupt sultans, it was a common saying that
Turkish money stinks." It is the same- in Oregon. Fish
money stinks. X
There is a bill, No. 93, in the senate, which, if forced out
of committee and amended and passed, will finish this busi
ness.! The bill was introduced by Senator Jones of Clackamas.
Why does not Senator Jones force it out ? ' !
There is a bill to defer the time when the vote of the people
' to force out part of the fish wheels and fixed gear shall take
effect. This bill ought to be killed.
The "investigation" of the present fish commission is a
sham; it stinks with fish money. The present commission is
the best the state has had. : ' ,
MAKING AN ASS OF UNCLE SAM
The Cantonese army in China forges north. It will keep
on going. It will be joined bythe forces of Marshal Feng, the
Christian general, with 170,000 men trained and equipped
thoroughly for modern warfare, and nearly all Christians t
And there will be finally a United States of China, with
peace and order and honesty in high places
For the first time in China's history. The corrupt heathen
provincial barons or tuchuns or governors will be things of
the bloody past..
In the face of this certain trend, a number of theTepresen
tatives of the United States in China have made an ass of
Uncle Sam. They have sided with the bandit heathen war
lords! They have treated Marshal Feng as a joke, and pewee
American and other press correspondents have followed suit.
These bullet headed sympathizers with the drunken and besot
ted night life commercial representatives at the treaty ports
have made a mess of things '
But, finally, and almost too late, our Secretary of State
Kellogg has shown a streak of human intelligence, and our
country will likely yet get into the line of decency and states
manship, as it should have done long ago. ,
The faithful YWCA workers are doing very well. But
they have a long way to go yet, and they must have the loyal
support of every decent man and woman, in Salem and the
surrounding country their contributions and their ' aid m
securing other pledges. l 4 i " -
The next big thing for our potato industry must be potato
starch, flour and dextrine factories. We are going to get the
first one before very long. , ,
POTATO INDUSTRY CENTER POSSIBLE
Salem has an opportunity to become one of the - world
centers of the potato industry; should become such "a center
Will become such 'a center when the growers "for -whom Salem
is the trade center decide to pay the price; and pay it. When
they pay it by stabilizing the industry absolutely. There are
many natural conditions favoring such a consummation- ,
, Among them these facts : -
- - - The potato growing districts to the south of us, especially
In Californianeed our seed potatoes. They want a seed potato
not grown on irrigated land. We are growing such a potato
&or them on a considerable and increasing scale, and we can
expand that line to much larger proportions.
Salem should have potato and starch and dextrine factories.
The by-products of such factories are important in commerce ;
there are scores of them. The very best face powders, for
one thing, come from potato starch; Many of the articles
used in textile and other factories come from potato starch
and dextrine and flour. Potato starch and flour and dextrine
of the highest qualities need potatoes grown on land no't irri
gated.. We can grow the right kind ofvpo'tat6tockfor such
ractorieshdrse the cull potatoes and export the' Shipping
t And sucha factory isnowactuany;projectediorfSaIem.
: A six year rotation should be followed by the potato grow
c.rs"'i.th.e Satern district, and sugar beets; and flax should-be
-, two of the six crops. - i i) l ' , . v . v; .
The conclusion of Tthe .whole matter! is that the Salem
district, and the Willamette valley from Marion county to the
Columbia river, may become the leading, potato growing
tectum, of the United States, if Our growers will pay the
price, as some of our leading growers are now domg, and as
all of our well posted growers now understand
, And the price is intelligent care -in the selection of the
seed and in the growing of the xropwith the right soils, and
the proper rotation; with the few varieties most in demand
by consumers; with storage facilities, and with careful grad
ing and proper packing in short, with complete standard
ization. ) 1. ; . - '

ITALY TO FOLLOW
Refusal to Accept Disarma

owed by Statement
ROME, Feb. 16. (AP)
Italy's. refusal to accept President
Coolidge's proposal for a confer
ence on supplementary naval dis
armament is clearly foreshadowed
in a semi-official communique is
sued tonight. In this Italy is tak
ing' the same path followed- by
France, and for practically .the
same reason self protection. ,
The reply itself, dealing direct
ly with the American memoran
dum, has not yet been made pub
lic, but this -is a matter probably
of merely hours.
The attitude of the Italian gov
ernment is explained in authori
tative quarters 4n Rome as having
been taken on' the ground that
Italy could not accept any limita
tion of her small ships, which are
absolutely necessary for her own
defense, in -view of her economic
position and the length of her
coast line and the need to pro
tect her traffic and also communi
cations with her colonies.
Any other attitude, it is de
clared,. would have been-a renune?
