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- nlte form. 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 agreement. 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.
