many people who are always

people prefer to pay what a tiling
is worth and get what they want
rather than to pay less money

A NEW INDUSTRY
The Albany Democrat tells of
the growth of peppermint rais
ing in Linn county and describes
this new industry for farmers
of the valley as becoming very
.profitable. The article also
says that Albany is likely to be
come the peppermint center of
Farmers in Lane county
might take a tip and do a little
experimenting with peppermint
and discover whether it is a
crop adapted to our soil- If
peppermint is a profitable crop
in Linn county it should be pro
fitable in Lane county.
One of the greatest obstacles
to agricultural success in this
valley is our remoteness from
good markets. There is always
a good market for peppermint.
The oil, when extracted, which
can be done on the farm or in
the community is not bulky and
the cost of transportation would
not amount to very much.
The Democrat tells the etory
in the following manner:
With success as pungent and un
deniable as its odor and flavor, the
peppermint industry of Albany and
the Willamette valley Is invading new
fields and Is broadening Us commer
cial scope and possibilities, John N.
Davios, representing the "Wllmerda"
company, walked Into the post olllco
today with a beaming smile. Ho wan
carrying a bottle of liquid.
"This," he said, "Is redistilled pep
permint, grown on the Santlam river.
Jt represents another step forward' In
tha great peppermint Industry.

old Industry, But tho success of ex
periments In roflnlng It has created
a new Industry, or now branch of tho
Industry, which will bo of conunet
clal and financial value to Albany and
country round about. This region Is
tho biggest producttvo center for tho
Industry In tho United Stntoa. Aftor
tho llrst year peppermint Is grown
hero as A Hold crop like clover and
alfalfa. Tho success of tho lnborntorv
work which la producing n ylold and
variety of tho oil which Is far ahead
of anything olso In tho world, will
tend to advertlso Albany and tho
There Is every reason to expect tho
development of this Industry will
bring capital and rovonuo to Albany.
A series of articles published
in the New York Times on the
morning of November 21, give
four specific instances of the
heads of large corporations in
different lines of business volun
tarily raising the wages of their
employes. Prosperity in the
eastern states is not prosperity
for the manufacturer alone. He
has come to realize that his
prosperity should be the pros
perity of his helpers.
The news articles speak for
NEW BEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 20.
The Cotton Manufacturers' Associa
tion of this city voted today to grant
a 10 per cent Increase In pay to their
33,000 operatives to be effective for
a period of six months beginning on
December 4. The increase is tho
third within this calendar year, and
brings the total ndvance within that
time to 27 per cent. This Is th
largest Increase) within a year thut
the. mill hands have ever received. It
will Increase the total annual pay
roll of the mills from about $17,30
000 to approximately $19,000,000.
The Manufacturers' Association in
cludes only the cloth mills, but tho
yarn mills always ,have followed the
cloth mills in the, past, so that labor
leaders expect the Increase to be gen
eral throughout the city.
ROCHESTER, Nov. 20. The East-
'man Kodak Company announced to
day that It will give a temporary In
crease In pay to all employes earn
ingup to and Including $50 a week.
The high cost of living and a probable
hard winter are given as the reason
for the advance. The Increase will
bo paid for twenty-one weeks begin
ning December 6.
An additional wage of 10 per cent
of their dally wages will be paid to
employes earning not more than ?20
a week. Employes earning more than

with tho Amorlcan Federation of Labor
they will havo tho Bupport

that n struggle of Intense Interest

Mr. Adamson said that under tho
Adamson law it would be lawful for
a railroad to compel a trainman who
completed his run tn less than eight
hours to work for the rest of the eight
hour period. He referred to the con
tention of Charles E. Hughes In this
connection, and said that as good a
lawyer as Mr. Hughes must have
known that the railroads had no such
right. One hundred miles was a
day's run on railroads, and if tho
trainmen completed the 100 miles tn
less than eight hours ho had done
his day's work.

the effort of President WilBon to pre

felt that they owed something to the
Administration and the Democratic
party, and for the first time ln their
history they took an active part In a
political campaign. With the Presi

ligation Is mutual, and that it Is duo
to them the Administration should
do everything In its power to prevent
the courts from overturning the Adam
They feel also that the Adminis

railroad workers, such as tho compul

not be surprising to observers hero
to find tho brotherhood beads back
In Congress again at tho session which
will begin on Doc. 4, using their influ

compulsory Investigation proposal of

in his annual address.
How tho brotherhoods will faro in
