WHY NOT HAVE ONE?
And Use Our Surplus Fruit A
"If Corvallis would establish a
car nery so that the surplus fruit
of this section could be saved in
stead of going to waste, it would
be the greatest boom that .this
vicinity could possibly be given."
This in substance was the
statement of a promiaent busi
ness man of this city, made a
few days ago when discussing
conditions, and it voices the
opinion of many a resident of
A cannery where the farmers
could sell for a fair price their
pears, peaches, peas, beans, corn,
tomatoes and any other product
that is used for canning purposes,
a cannery where forty, fifty or
even seventy-five persons could
secure employment, thus estab
lishing a pay roll that in turn
would benefit every class of busi
ness in Corvallis such an es
tablishment would do more to
start this city to growing in a
thrifty business way than would
any other one industry.
This business man cited in
stances in which canneries had
been established in a town by
the business men themselves,
who took shares and got the en
terprise in runnicg order. ' All
around, within a reasonable
radius of Corvallis, are logging
camps where canned supplies are
constantly in demand by the
- case. Why not meet this de
mand with the canned products
of our own orchards and gardens?
Why not keep this money at
home and pay it back to our own
people, who in torn would in
f vest it in local' shops, mills and
In other places canneries do a
flourishing business, while each

t sawn to wheat and oats year in
and vear out, with scarcely
enough profit to the farmer to
'pay for seed and labor.
With a cannery here and a
generous monthly pay roll estab
lished in connection therewith,
DroDertv would be enhanced in
in value by reason of an increas
ed demand, for where there is
boom there is population. Rent
houses would be in greater de
mand, and more moneyjwould be
