New Mill at Scltwood Will Bid High
to Got It.
A recent telegram received by the
Multnomah Mohair Mills from Liver
pool was to the effect that the last
consignment of machinery had left
that port for Portland. One other ship
ment is on the way, while one cargo
has just arrived in the Sound and will
soon arrive In Portland and will be
immediately installed at the factory
at Sellwood, says the Oregon Agricult
urist. It Is confidently predicted by the
general manager, Mr. John E. Young,
that the mill will be in full running
order and be able to handle the new
clip by the middle of March or the
first of April.
These people are going to make a
strong bid for the northwest business.
The intentions and purposes of the
company are to handle the very best
grades of mohair, and to get it they
are willing to bid high for It. All mo
hair arriving at the mills will be grad
ed and they figure that they can make
a better offer for it than any other
mill in the United States because of
short haul in transportation.
Mr. Young says that upon the re
ceipt of shipments, they will forward
to the shipper their check. If upon
receipt of the check the shipper Is not
satisfied with the price, he can In ten
days notify them to that effect and
they will hold the Bhlpment for thirty
days, and will then forward it to what
other place the shipper wishes to send
it, making no charges for warehous
ing, etc., and will only expect a re
fund of the freight charges which
they will have paid. Their railroad
spur and yards are at Willsburg on the
S. P., and their city offices are at 711
and 713 Couch building, Portland,
where they will be glad to meet all
mohair producers when in the city.
REDUCTION IN PAVING
Warren Construction Company An
nounces Lower Prices.
The Warren Construction company
through their Mr. Shannon notified
Mayor George F. Rodgers yesterday
morning of a reduction in the price of
three grades of bltullthle pavements.
The "Standard," which has been used
on the business streets of this city, has
been reduced to $2.06 a square yard.
This is a reduction of 16 cents under
the old price, bringing this grade of
pavement closer to the Idea of the
The "Special A" pavement has not
as yet, been tried In Salem, but will
be this spring on Twelfth street. This
class of paving Is now quoted at $1.90.
The "Special A" Is considered lighter
than the "Standard" and Is used on
resident streets and in districts where
the traffic is not heavy. The construc
tion company nlno puts out a still
lighter pavement which is only desir
able on outlaying streets where the
traffic is very light. This grade is the
"Special B" and Is now quoted at
$1.75. Salem Journal.
Douglas Cries "Roblery."
The more the detulls of the propos
ed "Nesmlth" county scheme become
known, the more despicable it ap
pears. The proposed boundaries were
evidently laid out with malice afore
thought, wholly disregard ail ques
tions of right, Justice or convenience.
8ome six or eight million dollars
worth of taxable property Is cut off
from Douglas county, yet the lines are
so drawn as to Include probably less
than 20 miles of public roads, and
no bridges worth mentioning. The
scheme Is to take from Douglas county
the maximum of taxable property with
the very least probable outlay for pub
lic Improvements therein, should the
new county be formed. In fact It Is al
ready boasted that If the proposed
boundaries can be secured, enough
taxes will be levied against the proper
ty thus taken from Douglas county to
pay for a fine courthouse every year.
The Cottage Grove scheme Is simply
outrageous and might well be classed
as attempted grand larceny.

Oregon Growers Are Urged to Take
Steps to Secure Real Value of
E. Clemens Horst, writing the
Statesman from London, under date
of January 30, has the following to
The coast hops of the crops 1905,
1906, 1807, and 1908 brought on an
average three cents higher prices on
the English market than did the Eng
lish hops, but for this crop, viz., 1909,
the conditions are reversed, and coast
hops fetch on an average five cents
per pound less than the English.
This makes a difference of eight
cents per pound as against the coast
grower, which difference could in a
large measure have been avoided If
the coast growers had co-operated in
a campaign of advertising the actual
merits of the coast hops.
If hop prices were to stay for fu
ture seasons where they are now, the
coast hop growers would not need to
care further about prices, but the high
prices make the low ones, and we have
to prepare now to hold our own when
low prices return. In the recent siege
of low prices, the German and Aus
trian hop growers Increased the pro
duction fully 60 per cent during the
same period that the coast growers
decreased their production over one
third, and, while coast growers were
plowing up, our Importations heavily
Increased, and the importations were
made at prices that would have kept
the coast growers In the business, and
at a profit.
The hop average of Germany and
Austria Is today much lighter than It
ever was, and the growers get 40 to 60
cents per pound for their hops.
The foreign hops owe their high
prices to co-operation among the grow
ers In causing their product to be well
written up and advertised.
The most Important reason why
coast hops do not at all times sell In
the markets of the world at higher
prices than any other hops, is that they
take no interest In the matter them
selves, and they leave the making or
breaking of the reputation of the.coast
hops to the dealers In hops, who after
all care only for their own profit, re
gardless of the grower, and If the
dealers can make more profit In sell
ing other hops, they naturally do not
boom the Pacifies. In fact, the most
coast hops that are bought by the
brewers in America are sold by the
dealers who sell foreign hops, which
they work on five and sometimes
eight cents per pound profit, and
while they cannot make over two
cents on the coast hops, naturally they
do all they can to sell the foreign hops
in our home market.
Of course, prices of hops from vari
ous countries vary with the extent of
the crops grown In the respective
countries, but as the brewing value of
hops does not depend upon how many
are grown in the various countries,
the coast growers ought to work to
gether to put before the brewers of
the world at first hand the merit of
the coast hops, and when the coast
hops sell on their merits they will al
ways sell at an average higher than
any other hops.
The principal brewing value of hops
as claimed by the brewers themselves.
Is the soft resin of the hop, and In
these the Pacific coast hops hold the
world's record, some of the coast hops
being richer therein than even the
world-famed Bohemian hops. But
the Bohemian hop growers, by direct
and judicious advertising among the
brewers, have established a reputation
that can be shaken by the coaBt grow-'
ers, but only by the coast growers
persistently putting the facts pertain
ing to the excellent brewing value of
the best coast hops.
Such a campaign by the coast grow
ers will need the co-operation of the
growers. It will Involve only a trifl
ing expense for obtaining analysis
from high class brewer's cnemlsts of
the best coast hops, In comparison
with best Bohemian, Bavarian, EngllBh
and New York state hops, and the
publication of the results In pamph
let form, and distributing the same
periodically to the 2000 Important
brewers In the world. The co-operation
of the growers Is necessary In or
der that the pamphlets carry weight,
which would not be carried were the
work carried on In the names of In
Only today I received a pamphlet
published by the Bohemian hop grow
ers under the name of "Bohemian Ag
ricultural Department" entitled "Bo
hemian Hops the Best Hops In the
World." Every brewer In the world
gets this publication; It professes to
tell why Bohemian hops are the best,
but the very claims they make can be
used to prove the coast hops the best
Up to now, the coast growers have
done nothing to csuse their hops to
get the valuation to which their merits
England will surely put a duty on
hops In a year or two, and then Amer
ica will have a hard time to market
its surplus, especially as the surplus
which Germany and Austria have been
shipping to England will also be shut
out by English duty, and Germany
and Austria will do all In their power
to increase their already heavy ship
ments Into America,
' This letter is written In the hope
that the coast growers will discuss this
subject among themselves, and act
upon the lines Indicated. My co-operation
is at their service. Yours

SEARS WINS HIS SUIT
Supreme Court Holds Crater Lake
Holding that the act of the last
legislative assembly, appropriating
$100,000 for the construction of a
state road from the Pacific ocean to
the Idaho boundary, via Crater Lake,
to be unconstitutional, the supreme
court affirmed the Judgment in the
case of J. K. Sears against George A.
Steele, as treasurer, and F. W. Ben
son, as secretary, rendered by Judge
William Galloway in the Marlon coun
ty circuit court.
The opinion was written by Justice
McBrlde, and It cites many authori
ties compiled from other cases bear
ing on the Crater Lake case. The con
stitutional provision for the laying out
of highways by a special act of the
legislature was to prevent the "log
rolling" legislators to pass laws foi
this special purpose. Legislative acts
up to the adoption of the constitution
are set out in the opinion which says
that "the practice of logrolling among
the fathers of the state was not con
fined entirely to that species of em
ployment necessary to the clearing up
of their farms."
This provision stopped the building
of roads by the state until the decision
of the case of Allen vs. Hirsch, In 1874,
which held the act granting aid to
build the Munamlcca road constitu
tional. "The legislature of 1889, taking Its
cue from the decision of Allen vs.
Hirsch passed nine road bills, appro
priating sums varying In amounts
from $8000 to $15,000, and aggregat
ing over $100,000, seeming fairly to
open up the floodgates for the unlim
ited Increase of appropriations until
the decision of this court In Maxwell
vs. Tillamook county, which arrested
further appropriations of this charac
ter until the last session of the legis
lature." This language concluded the
Justice King dissented in that to
consider the act of appropriation un
constitutional was far-reaching, on the
ground that it was not of purely local
Interest to construct the road, but of
entire state interest.
