Iltet Sugar In Oregon.
A farmer writes a letter to the
Balem Capital Journal in favor
of the legislature oflering somo aid
oriiuluccment for the production of
beet sugar in Oregon. Ho contends
that tiie sugar beet can be success
fully cultivated all over this state;
and that with a little state aid, in
the way of bounties, the production
of beet sugar in Oregon could be
made ti grand success, and not only
savo the cost of all the nugur we
now purchase from abroad, but also
export thousands of tons.
Tito great sugar refiner, Claus
Spreckle.s, of California, lias made a
grand success of his Watsonvilie
beet sugar factory, and has made
contracts for a much larger nroduc
tion of sugnr beets next year. In
France, the beet sugar production is
larger than the wine, wool or meat
productions, and (iermany exports
thousands of tons of beet sugar after
supplying the homo market.
The state of Kansas is p lying out
of the state treasury two cents per
pound on all the sorghum sugar pro
duced in that state, and this bonus
has resulted in the erection of seven
largo sorghum sugar factories and
opened up a market for a new line
of fanners' produce. Portland
WOOLEN MILLS FOR SALEM.

II. V. Matthews, who bus a fruit
farm near Balem, is collecting :i0,000
pounds of evaporated prunes for
fihipmcut to Kansas and Dakota.
Koine moiithHiign hesent l.'lOO pounds
as a sample and the palates of tho.e
who reside in the land of the Da ko
las and on the pr.irles of Kansas
were so touched that the larger ship
ment was made necessary. He is
paying ten cents per pound for Sil
ver and Italian prunes and eight
cents for all other varieties.
lie tells us prune growing is one
of the most profitable vocation- in
which one can engage. To show
what can bo done by the proper
management, of prunes he cites the
experience of Mr. Jory. From one-
eighth of an acre planted live years
ago in prunes he this year obtained
MX) pounds of dried fruit which he
sold for S0. At tliis rate (140 can
lie realized from one acre of live
year old trees.
Mr. Matthews has Just concluded
theplantiugof 1.100 pear trees on ills
farm. He thinks this twelve acres
in pears will bring him much mon
ey in a few years.
While Marlon county's assess
ment is less than Linn's by a mil
lion dollars It's total tax to bo raised
is about $15,000 more, hence Its rate
is much In excess of ours, being
about 120 mills. Of course this will
not make much dlllerenee with men
wlio cheat the state and county in
the amount of their assessment, as
a great many do, but to those who
are not favored it is a great injustice.
There It something decldidly rotten
in Marion county's assessment, and
we only mention It because it Is a
publiu matter and affects everybody.
A Mass Meeting To-Xi;ht to Consider
the Proposition of Mr. Kay.
To-night at the council chamber
there will bo a mass meeting of the
citizens of Salem for the discussion of
the proposition of the establishment
of extensive woolen mills at the
capital city. A largo attendance of
citizens is earnestly desired, as the
business in hand is of the greatest
Importance to Salem and the coun
try in general.
Messrs. Albert, Moores and Booth
by, appointed to obtain propositions
relative to the purchase of water
power, have looked the field well
over. Tho relatlvo codt and desir
ability of tho Gray, McCornack's,
old tannery and other po we re have
been considered. As yet but the
ono proposition to sell the Gray
power for $10,000 has been recc.ved,
but tho committee is in communica
tion with the owners of tho other
For Salem to secure the location
of a woolen mill within her borders,
it behooves the city to raise $20,000.
The mill as proposed will give em
ployment in a few years to half a
thousand men, whoso families will
live among and be of us. This is a
small sum for a city of our preten
sions to raise, especially so for an
enterprise that will be of benefit to
It is earnestly desired that tho at
tendance at tho meeting to-night
be large. Tho Capital Jour
nal is anxious to seo the capital
city go ahead more and more and
nothing can bo of so much benefit to
a city as manufacturing enterprises.
