mediately. For several cars lust a general
fcelinir lias prevailed among the citi
zens of Union that we ought to have a
woolen mill at this place. Much has
been said Irom t i nit: to time by this
paper urging the entcrpise. Con
siderable talk has been had. hut noth
ing delinite has ever been (lone to put
it into a tangiblo shape until recently.
Some time n:ro, however, anting
'llc Jjeneral desire and increased
interest in the matter, it took a tangi
ble form and on Nov. loth, 1887, The
Iuhnd Umpire Woolen Manufacturing
Co. , of Union, va inroipoiated with
a capital stock of $126,000, with W.
T. Wright. A. E. Eaton and F. F.
Baker as incorporators. Stork books
were opened and a large amount of
stock readily taken. We have re
frained from saying anything about it
this time until vo knew that" il was an
assured thing. We now know that
such is the case, and as the stock is
rapidly being taken we leel justified
in making the unqualified statement
will be built at Union and Unit work
! will bu commenced upon it as soon as
the company can perfect their arrange
ments. 1 1 is proposed to erect a null
costing from G7o, 000 to SSO.O00 with
I euougn additional capuai reaiiy w
run the null for the first year without
being under the necessity of working
on borrowed capital, in fact it is to be

other point in Union county, and
probably not in Eastern Oregon,

facilities for a woolen mill than does
the enterprising town of Union.
That a woolen mill will pay large
interest on the investment there can
be no doubt wbatevor. and the eager
ness with which the stock is being
taken is proof that men arc ready and
willing to invest their money in this
enterprise in preference to seeking
borrowers at the present rate of inler

it will, we believe, be the only wool

Willamette rivers. There are only
three such mills in the State the Ore

and the Ashland mill, and at present,
we believe there is not one in Wash

country in every direction which can
be supplied from this point at less
cost than from any other.
That this city will reap the reward
she so richly deserves, docs not admit
of a question. Property will bo en

Mr. Fred. Simonis, of Eagle valley,
was in town this week purchasing eup
plies. He said ho was surprised at the
way goods were being sold in Union ;
that he could buy goods 25 per cent
cheaper here, than in Baker City. Ho
said he had saved several dollars by
coining here, and that it would be bet
ter for the farmers in Eagle vallev to
borrow money and buy goon's in Union,
than to bwap wheat etc. for goods in
Baker City. That is the experience of
all who come to Union. Our mer

point. Mark that down in your note
