l A wool scouring plant ought to pay
well in Enterprise and certainly would
be bf great benefit to the owners ot
Bheep and indirectly to tbe count', said
E. B. Knapp, late of Coleman, Mich.,
who recently'locnted in Enterprise.
At present the wool crop of Wallowa
county is rated at onlv from 30 to 40
per cent wool, the buyers making a
very liberal estimate of the amount of
grease and dirt. In Mh Knapp's opinion
the rating should be from 40 to 60 per
'1'he price here ranges from 17 to 20
cents a pound. In Boston scoured wool
is sold at from 68 to 72 cents. In other
words the sheep men of Wallowa
county not only lose from tbe low
rating, but pay tbe freight on the grease
and dirt across the continent and the
profits of scouring at some plant in the
East. It certainly seems reasonable
that a scouring plant would pay here.
The wool seller would not only receive
a higher price per pound but would be
given credit for more pounds. The cost
of sec uring would be paid out in wages
here at home, and the profit on the
operation would also remain here,
building up a larger and better market
for all other things the farmers have to
sell, i' .
. There is no doubt of such an enter
prise paying if yarn aud knitting mills
were run in connection. There are
two Industries in which factor!' s can
not keep, up with orders even running
night and day, and they aro the shoe
and knitting industries. Knitting mills
everywhere in the East are over
crowded with orders si d are making
ii. mense profits. The demand for knit
goods has increased in a wonderful way
during the last few years, and while
factories have multiplied yet not fast
enough to supply the demand.
A knitting mill, while it requires
expert management,, and a certain
number of experienced help, can be
started on a smaller scale and with less
capital than a mill making woolen
Tbe matter seems a promising one for
investigation by the Commercial club
Pioneer Roofing, sold by Hart'hona
& Keltner, the Enterprise Hardware
storj, is guaranteed to equal the best.
