THE WATER PROBLEM.
The water committee have been at
work and have had two engineers look
the various points over, but as yet, have
not come to a conclusion as to wheie the
works are to Ixs located. Several very
good locations have been looked at. The
best of them however is the water from
Baker creek. The executors of the Sax
estate have said that the city could have
the old mill site with ditch, right of way
and every privilage which they hold on
the Baker creek water for *10,000. If
the works are located at this place, the
city 1ms the power for pumping plenty of
water and a fine building at once and all
that will have to be done will 1x5 to lay
the mains, make the connections, clean
the ditch deepen the reservoir and Mc
Minnville will Ixs furnished with water.
Nearly three-fourths of the water which
passes through the turbine can be
pum|x5d intothecity by the same turbine,
thereby making the water supply of this
city furnish its own power. During the
night the supply of water can be lessened
and the extra power gained by this can
lie utilised for the electric light plant
w hich can be situated in the old mill.
The city can own and operate both plants
and maintain them al a nominal cost and
the citizens of this city who take lights
and water will pay simply the ex|ienses
of the plant and not the large profit
which an individual company would nec
essarily have to make in order to make
the investment. The lower the rale, the
better the citizens of this city will be
satisfied. Yamhill waler is thought by
some to be the best, but if the works are
to lx> located at the most practical point,
a large well must lie sunk, pumps and
engines with a reservoir must be put in
and at least 250) feet of main before it
reaches a point where water can be taken.
By using the Sax property, water takers
can be reached in about 300 feet, the
Ixiwor and water is already there and all
that is necessary to complete the Mc

A dispatch from Washington says that
Prof. Willetts, assistant secretary of ag
riculture, has under consideration a let
ter from Ireland which he thinks may
offer a solution to the economic problem
of what shall take the place of wheat on
farms where it can no longer lie raised at
a profit. The writer, who has been fa
miliar with flax gloving and linen man
ufacturing since 1840, says in his inter
“There are two establishments weav
ing, one at Webster, Mass., and the
other at Appleton, Wis., the latter doing
but little, and neither weaving anything
finer than trash. There is nothing in the
climate or soil conflicting with the asser
tion that just as good flax and linen mav
be producer! in every state in the Union
as in any country. Germany now spins
and weaveB the finest lir.en, and she has
no essentially different climate fiom
America. Many tilings become success
ful in America from the facility with
which people take up and adopt im
proved processes and appliances, and
this may be tlie salvation of the linen in
dustry, the importance of which there is
no question. There is every reason why
American farmers should produce a mil
lion acres of flax, or both seed or fibre
over and above which is now produced,
which would give 12,000,000 to 15,000,000
bushels of seed, woith as many million
dollars, and two million and u half tons
of straw, worth *50,000,000, and from
which 500,000 tons of flax fibre would be
obtained, worth *100,000,000. Once es
tablished, American invention would, as
in all other industries, soon build up an
industry to consume this raw material.”
Prof. Willetts has informed the sender
the subject of his letter would lxs earnest
ly considered by the ilepai tment, whi h
would lend its aid to any effort to in
crease or diversify the agricultural indus
tries of the country.
DEAD BEATS in. SUGAR BEETS.
It seems, by the latest Japanese ad
vices, that the new treaty with the
United States has not yet bean com
pleted, but that tlie Japanese govern
ment is hurrying it on in order Io have it
ready before Mr. Swill’s arrival. We
may assume, therefore, th.it the change
of administration in this country will
cans- no -1 Liv. Mr. Swifr showed, by
his speech at the farewell banquet, that
he appreciated the work of his predeces
sor, and the policy of aiding Japan to at
tain home rule is a tradition of out gov
ernment under all parties. It is to be
hoped that one of tho first acts of the
senate When congress meets will be to
confirm the new treaty.
