on the Oregon country," Mr Dodson
, said, "and It won't be long beforo lnUi

Mr. lJodson recently returned from

survey of buxlness conditions there.
He told the business men that he talk-

Mr. Dodson told of his conference In
Washington, D. C, with Admiral Ren-
son of the Vnltcd ' States shipping
board and of his assurance that wn
. facilities would be opened wide to Ore
Iron shippers. There Is now a II n j from

to look elsewhere for this product, and
learning; that (treat posslhlltles presoiit
themselves In this state to utilize char
ion! as fuel, are Investigating condi
tions hore with a view of establishing
great manufactories. Only one t h I n k
Is lacking so far In this stute that
tends to dlscouruKe great manufactor
ies, Mr. Dodson declared, and that Is
Iron. Even now eastern Interests have
men lit the slate searching carefully
for this product in an effort to open
up (treat channels ot endeavor In Ore

, Tlie Water power that ubound In the
northwest Is also very attractive to
eastern manufacturers, Mr. Dodson
said. In that It does away with the noed
of fuel, and renders manufacturing
more economical than with the uso of
faul. Mr. Dodson said that water pow
r In the northwest equals that power
that mlitht be furnished with S&0.000
tons of coal a your.
' "The time will come when the Wll
lamntte valley will be the greatest lum
ber manufacturing center In the
world," asserted Mr. Dodson. "This
etnte Is due for bigger and bettor
things In a business way than ever be
fore. Yet when I icet up in Porllnnft
and make this optimistic talk of
mine," he added with a smll, "I hear
men say 'busbwahl' 'bull' and 'get out.'
I regret that they cannot see Just what
lays so short sways ahead."
Senator IMoroo Talks.
Benator Walter plcree, from eastern
Oregon, made a short talk Introducing
Arthur C. Foster, who will talk nt the
Commercial club bfcforo the public to
night on the Non-Partisan league's
operations in North Dakota. The
meeting begins at 8 o'clock. Senator
l'lerce will also talk.
.' In his Introductory speech this nonn,
the petintor declared that the spread
of socialism, communism and radical
ism Is sweeping toward this state, and
dried: "If you value your govern
ment as I do, and see the opportuni
ties that present themselves for Its de
struction through such organisation,
It Is time we put our shoukler to the
ttaeel and try to presorve It."
