body reports having had a good
time, and the names of about 20
new candidate were secured. The
Modern Woodmen of America Is an
active and enthusiastic body of

Sugar Factory a Necessity.
With Irrigation in this valley, the
sugar beet would become one of the
most profitable crops that can be
grown on our lands. Sugar beets
are a desirable crop in many of the
western states, notably Kansas, Ne
braska, Colorado, Utah and Mon
tana. The business has been intro
duced in the Grand Ronde Valley,
this state and has become very suc
cessful there. In the vicinity of
Grants Pass all the different var
ieties of the befeu grow o perfection
and it Is quite certain the cultiva
tion of the sugar producing kind as
a business will be highly profitable,
as the ripening season here is much
longer than In the Grand Ronde Val
ley. In this section beets can be
ready for the factory fully 60 days
earlier than in more northern por
tions of the state. With the aid of
Irrigation, two and possibly three
distinct crops could be matured and
our mild climate will permit manu
facturing to continue all winter. A
beet sugar factory at Grants Pass
would add greatly to the prosperity
of the city. When Irrigation has
become an established fact there will
be practically no difficulty In induc
ing some of the sugar manufacturers
to put In a plant at this point. They
will require a guarantee of the culti
vation of a certain acreage before a
factory will be located and this we
can give. In the ' Grand Ronde
valley the company failed to secure
the required guarantee, so was oblig
ed themselves to put in 2000 acres
and the business of growing beets
became so profitable they have con
tinued the cultivation of this large
acreage. A sugar factory is a nec
essity. Dissolution of Partnership.
