Encouraging reports have been re
ceived by Newberg parties from Dr.
Korn, the projector of the beet sugar fac
tory. He writes that the capital has
been subscribed, and while he cannot
come west himself at this time, owing to
the fact that lie is building a factory in
Iowa, an assistant manager will soon be
headed this way, and he hopes to come
later, and make Oregon his permanent
home. The capital subscribed is largely
located in America, and much of it is
said to have been secured by Mr. D. So
lis Cohen of Portland, who is now tn the
east. Dr. Korn says the Newberg factory
will be one of the finest in the world,
and the syndicate has chosen him to
manage its construction. The erection
of the factory is a large undertaking, and
will naturally take a little time aud pa
tience to get the bull rolling.
