MILLS MAY MERGE
COAST MANUFACTURERS OF
WOOLEN GETTING TOGETHER.
General Consolidation of Interest of
All Planned and May Be Put Into
Execution In a Comparatively Short
Tlme Great Advantage Outlined
and Interesting Information Given.
For moro limn a month thero have
been rumors and rumors of rumors
floating around, hinting of a vast
merger in the woolen mill business
of the Pacific coast, and yesterday
the intimations came to light in a doft-
Proposition From California.
The California mills are anxious to
form a combination embracing all of
the mills on tho coast, California and
Oregon to be under one management
and control of board of directors.
Over a month ago a meeting of the
mill owners was held In San Francis
co for the purpose of reaching an
At this meeting a committee was
appointed to visit the mills, examine
their conditions and appraise the
valuation of their stock and business.
This committee has now reported
and the matter is up for settlement
But while the California mills are
anxious for the combination to be
formed, the Oregon mills aro inde
pendent. Tho southern mills started
out with the idea that they could
whip the Oregon institutions into
line, but it Is found that tho balanco
of power lies In tho Webfoot state. It
is not so much the value of the equip
ment of a mill, as the strength of its
trade that makes it a power, and tho
mills of this state are in the latter
list. Tho California mills may have
moro money invested in plants, but
the Oregon concerns reap more re
turns from an equal amount of in
vestment, and for this reason they
can force the California scheme Into
their own terms.
Benefits of a Merger.
The great advantage of tho merger
lies in two directions: Chiefly In the
saving of expense to the mill on the
operators' side of the question, and
In the raising of the grade of product
for the gain of tho consumer. Where
at the present time each private con
cern must maintain independent
wool buyers and agents, under tho
combine one man would serve the
whole coast, where now each mill
must negotiate with the manufactur
ers for dye stuff, machinery, transpor
tation, everything In fact. Tho mer
ger would, by the enormity of the
output and the control of tho demand,
be able to reduce the expenses from
seven to 15 per cent. In this the mills
would profit, and their margin of gain
would be larger.
Segregate the Output.
On the other hand, It Is the plan
of the combination to segregate the
output of each mill and to classify it.
For instance, were tho combination
to be effected, the Pendleton mill
would weave nothing but Indian lobes
and blankets. The local mill has the
reputation of putting out tho best
work of this kind in the United States
and were It to do nothing else hut
follow out that line, the quality eould
1)0 raised oven above tho present
standard without a .-also lu the price
to the patrons.
This Is the strong point ami chief
argument of the frl?'id or the sr heme
but whether or not their argument
will carry weight and their fl 111.1 ca'i
be consummated depend J millrelv m
the promoters of tho fcchenu- t'lem
selves. The Oro;on manufacturer!,
have never taken any antive steps In
the matter, hut It lias been pushed
from California anl since this Is the
case tho California anils will havo I"
receive terms lns'.md of dletatlm
them. It Is the opinion of conseiva
tlve mill men that the merger will bo
effected In time, but not at the pres
ent Juucture, unless they can hate tho
concessions they ask. What they
want is a represcntatatlon, not mi
the valuation of their plants, but 011
the returns of their business. With
an equal equipment they have a
greater earning capacity than tho
southern mills, owing to cheapness
of raw material and superior climatic
conditions. Hence, the deal must ho
closed on the basis of productiveness
If It is closed at all.
Pendleton Mills Independent.
Tho Pendleton mills aro particular
ly Independent, as they have a spe
cial field with no competition ade
quate to cause them distress. Their
robe aud blanket business can not
be touched by any other mill In tho
country, and as a lesult they are ah 0
to dictate their own terras. While
thoy would gain in lessened running
expenses by Joining the merger, they
do not wish to loso their Independ
ence of action unless the gain and
the result of the gain would Justify
"'ThiTmatter will not ho settled for
a long time yet, for it Is now only
in tho formative period, and it Is a
vast enterprise, involving the control
of millions of dollars. But the time is
coming when all the mills will bo
under one head and tho small Inde
pendent mill of today will bo a thing
of the past.
