Admiral Magruder said there
was no chance of Ms being court
martialed as a result of the mag
azine article because he had vio
lated n regulations, having filed
a copy of it with the navy depart
ment. " "My article may have been lur
id in spots," he said, "but it was
fundamentally correct."
! Referring to the admiral's char
ges of too much red tape in the
department, the secretary recall
ed that in July 19 26. he had ask
ed the various departmental
chiefs whether there was not an
unnecessary amount of correspon

How Industry Started
Mr. Herrold told how the mint
(industry started here. The first
roots, about a "hat full," came in
1903 from Michigan to O. H. Todd,
who was then at Mary's River,

Idaho. They did not do very well
there. Mr. Todd tried out several
places in Washington and Califor
nia and finally in 1912 went to
Eugene, Oregon, with about a
wagon load of roots, and started
to growing mint on the river bot
tom lands near that city. He Is
still growing mint there. From the
plantings near Eugene have come
the large acreage in the Salem
district, and in other sections of
western Oregon and Washington.
This year, Marion county alone
has produced about 55,000 pounds
of peppermint oil, from 1200 to
1500 acres.
Mr. Herrold said the require
ments of the United States of pep
permint oil are now 550,000 to
600,000 pounds annually. He said
the New York dealers are clalm
ing that about 1,000,000 pounds
were produced in this country this
year, while the growers say about
750,000 pounds.
Big Industry Here
Mr. Herrold predicted that the
mint industry .in Marion county
will become a large one. It will
take large capital and much labor
and draw a great deal of money
from long distances. Upland here
will produce 25 to 3 5 pounds of
oil to the acre. Lake Labish lands
ni viplri 55 to 60 nounds. One
grower there got 120 pounds; but
this is exceptional.
The menthol content is 50 to 75
per cent higher in Oregon than in
eastern states. Andour oil is much
higher than the eastern in ester
content the quality that gives the
flavor: the lasting flavor. The
chemists of the American Chicle
company and the Beechnut com
pany told Mr. Herrold last year,
when he made an extensive trip
investigating the industry, that
they have found no oil in the world
that has anything like the lasting
qualities in flavor that are pos
sessed by the Marion county pep
permint oil. The oil content of
the mint hay this year was reduced
somewhat by the rains in harvest
ing time. It is cut like hay and
slightly dried for distilling. The
drying was retarded and interfered
with by the rains.
Cost and Prices
The cost of producing oil in
Marion county is about $2 a
pound, over a period of years. The
price is now $2.30 a pound. Very
low; much lower than the average
over a term of years. But the re
fining of the oil will mane me

15 or 2 5 cents more a pound. It

The Great Tiling
The great thing that" was
brought out in the talk of Mr.
Harrold was the Importance 6t a
refinery here. He explained : the
workings of testing instruments
for quality, " t With the Instru
ments). And the ' bigger thing
still was developed after the talk
that we are to actually have a
refinery, and now. With the op
eration of . a refinery here, our
mint industry can flourish In com

lower priced lands; less overhead.
Second, we can grow more oil to
the acre Third, we can produce
an oil with a far higher menthol
content. Fourth, we can produce
an oil with a far higher ester con
tent. These things will establish
the mint center of the United
States in Salem, as surely as
water seeks its level.
Another Marvel of .Communi-
cation Is Added to Many
Already T)ommon
Tt is anounced by the American
Telephone company and the In
ternational Tel. & Tel. corpora
tion that telephone communication
between the United States and sev
eral of the principal cities of. Mex
ico .will be opened Friday morn
ing, September 30th at 8 o'clock.
It will then be possible to talk
from any BeM system point to
San Luis Potosi. Victoria, Saltillo,
Monterey and Nuevo-Laredo.
The total length of the circuit
between Washington. D. C. and
Mexico Citv .is 3357 miles. ' This
new service will bring Mexico s
capital city, her principal seaport,
Tampico. and the capitals of some
of her richest and most progres
sive states within the range of
American telephone communicati
The charge for a three minute
station-to-station call from Salem
to Mexico City will be $13.90. The,
Bell system has made arrange-!
ment. to connct at Iarfdo. Tex
as, with the newly completed line
of -'the Mexican Tel. & Tel. Co., a
subsidiary of the International
Tel. & Tel. corporation. At this
point the line wi ll cross the Rio
Grande which there forms the in
ternational boundary.
From Nuevo-Laredo on the
Mexican side of the Rio Grand,
the long distance line runs thru
some arid region and far'nr
country southward to Mexico Citv
and Pueblo. It pasnes through
Monterrey, Pueblo. Saltillo, San
Lus Potosi. and Queretaro, af
fording telephone communication
to these points.
A branch line extends from San
Luis Potosi to Tampico. the ira-i
portant oil port on the semii-trop-,
leal east coast of Mexico. Another
line runs up from Tampico to Vic
tor'a. The Mexican long distance
lines have practically all been
built within the last year or two
and are of thoroughly modern
construction. Telephone repeater
have been installed at intervals to
strengthen the voice-carrying cur
rents as they become weak from
covering long distances, and the
lines have been designed with e
view to- prov'ding such additional
circuits as the growth of the traf
fic may require.
The Bell system already con
nects with the telephone system
of Canada. Cuba and (by radio tel
ephone) Great Britain. The new
service adds .Mexico to the li-t of
countries which are within speak
ing distance of American teleph
one users. lnCJ

A sudden gust of wind played
havoc with electric light and tele
phone 'wires last night, throwing
various parts of the city Into
darkness, and interrupting tele
phone service.
Lights everywhere on the fair
grounds went" out at 9:40 p. m
delaying for 20 minutes the horse
show and causing concession-
naires to close up for the night.
Flashlights, candles, and other
lighting devices were produced to
protect exhibits and booths from
looters. No trouble was expe
rienced by police in keeping order.
Automobiles were run into the
horse show stadium to throw
their headlights into the surround
ing sections. Horses in their
stalls became nervous and excited,
many of them breaking loose.
Officers maintained vigilance
against marauders and no robber
ies or other difficulties were re
ported to the police Judge.
Concessionnaires by genefal
consent began to close up and the
crowd thinned out quickly.
Branches blown across 'electric
light wires on the river road
caused the trouble in North Salem
and at the fair- grounds. As soon
as the trouble was located, elec
tricians cut the feeder along the
river road and patched the main
line to the grounds, the entire pro
cess occupying only 20 minutes
East Salem citizens also were
without light for a somewhat
longer period about the same time
when tree branches fell across the
lines there. Primary wires near
the capitol building went out,
interrupting service in that sec
tion for a minute or two.
Telephone poles in East Salem,
blown down by the sudden wind,
interfered with telephone service
for some time, but the ' trouble
was soon corrected.
Division Manager W. M. Ham
ilton, of the Pacific Power and
Light company, and D. A. Wright,
electrical superintendent, called
several electricians out of bed to
go after the trouble-. Eleven men
were out besides the regular crew.
