While Democratic Senators from wool
growing states, anxious to excuse their votes
for free wool, have been pointing with pride
to high prices, reports of imports and of the
world supply have been sweeping away their
arguments. The advance in prices 'of raw
wool is due to a short clip the world over, the
shortage in the United States alone being
about 30,000,IKX pounds. The total . world
shortage is estimated at 240,000,000, but in
spite of this fact imports to this country have
enormouslv increased.
The report of tho Bureau of Foreign and
Domestic Commerce shows increases in March
as compared with March, 11)13, in imports of
class 1 wool of 93.9 per cent ; class 2 wool, G0.7
per cent; woolen cloths, 324 per cent; dress
goods 227 per cent; wearing apparel, 3.2 per
cent; all other manufactures of wool 707 per
These figures were quoted in the Senate
by Senator Smoot as showing the disasterous
effect of the Underwood tariff on American
industry. Senator Chamberlain attempted to
answer him a few days later by quoting from
Oregon papers statements that growers have
secured this season the highest prices for
seventeen years and by quoting from what he
called "a leading Democratic paper in the
heart of the woolgrowing section of Eastern
Oregon," reports of sales at a considerable
advance over the prices of last year and the
year preceding.
Mr. Smoot promptly exjxhsed the fallacy of
Mr. Chamberlain's argument by stating that
"the world price of wool today is about three
times what it was in 1894" because of a short
age in the world's production." He added:
I simplv make this statement to have it un
derstood that if the conditions were the same
in the world's market today that they were in
1894 there would be no such articles present
ed to the Senate: If there was a duty on wool,
the woolgrower would be getting higher
prices than he is getting today.
American growers know that the higher
prices obtained for their crop is abnonnal and
last week 's Examiner a lengthy article or re
port was published giving some idea of what
the Slate of Oregon is losing by allowing these
deposits to lay idle.
Thv bond held with the stato by C. M. Sain
and associates was released on May 1, leav
ing numerous creditors who have no recourse
whatever. It is estimated that there is now-
back about $15,000 done in assessment work
and the greatest portion of the money is due
the settlers of the Summer Lake Valley for la
bor. It is upon these people that the present
condtion falls the heaviest. It would, there
fore, seem that Mr. Sain ami his associates
or others should be given the opportunity to
continue the development, and if possible let
these deserving creditors recover their wages.
It is too valuable an asset to the entire state
to keep this work retarded any longer. The
state should not sell the salt lakes but should
lease them under such terms as to protect la
bor, protect consumers and protect the state.
Their waters contain deposits of salt,
soda and potash of great values. Some es
timates place the gross value at $80,000,000.
The process of recovery of these natural ele
ments is extremely economical. Pipe lines
could carry them in solution at but a fraction
of the cost of railroad transportation to the
tide water, where refining works would reduce
them to marketable products.
As example in recovery of the-soila contents
so these lakes, it is estimated that the refined
product could be eViractcd at a cost of $2
per ton. Practically all the soda markets are
supplied by manufactured soil a which costs
$7 to $9 a ton to produce.
These valuable deposits were yielded by na
ture for the use and comfort of mankind
They ought not to be capitalized for the pri-j
rvate profit of a few men. They ought not to
be put under private monoply and their na
tural wealth be absorbed by a small group.
The most frequent causes of headaches oc
curring during or after the theater is eye
strain. People who use the full energy of the
delicate eye muscles to obtain perfct vision
are often unconscious of this strain. In the
theater, the continuous effort to keep every
thing constantly focused exhausts the nerve
centers and headaches result: The- practice
of seating the audience in total darkness while
they are staring into an intensely lighted
stage, is another serious factor. The pupils
! being widelv dilated in the flark, admit tho
excess of light from the stage, often producing
iritation of the eves which lasts sometimes for
days. Those subject to headaches , should
never sit where it is necessary to raise the

Oregon Pioneei-N Meet
What was probably considered
tho most venerable aggregation of
men and women ever assembled In
the west was the session of pioneers
who met In Portland last week in
renewal of former friendships and
bridging the gap that lies between
the dim and distant era of early con
quest of the wilderness and the pre
sent time.
A total of 812 pioneers of the
Oregon Historical Society registered
at headquarters of the Oregon His
torical Society, with a combined ago
of approximately BC,840 years, the
average age of each of the patriarchs
being 70 years. None of them was
under 55 years, and only those hardy
settlors who came to the state or
were born hero before Oregon was
admitted into the union in 18C9 are
eligible In this roll of honor.
Speakingjif the reunion, the Port
land papers state that while it was
enthusiastic and spirited as ever was
smaller this year thun in the years
gone by, and when the boys and
girls of Old Oregon sat down to an
elaborate banquet given in their
honor not over 900 seats werefllled.
Only a few years ago the attendance
ranged from 1200 to 1B00.
