Mr. Richard Kuchnc. a German
American sugar beet expert, who has
been connected with the Grand Island,
Neb., factory, has been at work In
Salem two days.
lie visited the Garden Road and.asy
lum gardens on Thursdday to inspect
the growtb of vegetables and the
depth and quality of the soil. lie
found strong uartu soil, that ho con
siders unsurpassed for sugar beets,
could be had in sufficient quantities
about Salem to warrant the location
of a big factory here. It will take
from 5,000 to 0,000 acres, as beets can
be hauled by team from two to four
miles at a profit.
THE LABISH LANDS
were inspected this forenoon. In
company with Tllmon Ford, he went
to that gentleman's farms and to the
John Knight farm on Lablsh bottom,
Wiht shoyel and pick he examined
the soil, finding it all the way from
two feet to one hundred feet deep
(latser estimated.) No better beet
farming soil could be imagined but
actual tests may bring varied results.
But the soils are such as to satisfy
Mr. Kuehne that sugar beet culture
would be likely to be a successful ex
WHAT CAN I1E DONE.
Mr. Kuehne left at 2 o'clock to ex
plore tho soils about Aurora. He
says he will comeback to Salem If a
meeting of farmers and citizens can be
called when he will give specific in
formation as to profits of sugar beet
culture, nature of contracts required
with farmers for from five to ten yeais,
and what is better will bring witli
him a capitalist who is prepared to
talk business at once The crop can
be started this fall and the factory
puu up In time for next year.s product
to be worked up.
WHAT IT MEANS
to Salem is best shown by some figures
left us by Mr. Kuehne. who resides
at Tlgardsvilie, where he has a large
farm and Is conducting extensive ex
periments in sugar beet culture. A
factory to work up 300 tons of beets a
day will cost $250,000; a 500 ton fac
tory $400,000; buildings are put up of
brick and steel; 300 tons a day takes
3000 acres of land; employs 180 men
day and night; the field work for
such a factory would employ 1200 to
1500 men, women and children; beets
yielding 12 percent sugar of 80 per
cent purity sell for $4 a ton; as per
cent of sugar Increases price advances
to $7 a ton. Ten tons to an acre will
net the farmes $35 an acre, and 15 per
cent return In value of pulp for feed;
he also says the use of the tops
stimulates the dairy product and es
tablishment of creameries.
DO WE WANT FACTORIES?
If we do we must go to work". The
company will put in a big capital.
Shares of stock are taken locally
wherever a factory Is established and
beet stock is taken by the farmers.
Oregon's 400,000 people consume 28,
000,000 pounds sugar a year and the
home market will keep the money at
home that now goes abroad. Mr.
Kuehne explains all details when
A beet sugar factory would in Ave
years add thousands of people to our
population and put money in circu
lation here that now goes abroad.
There is no experiment about beet
sugar manufacture. Germany has
431 beet sugar refineries, while our
country has only 8 or 0 factories and
is 171 times ps large as Germany with
nearly twice the population.
Mr. Ford says he showed the expert
the soils on the Knlght.lBush, Albert.
Pugh and Beatty farms and that there
is no floudt but what In that vicinity
there are 10,000 acres of the very finest
sugar beet land. One sample has
been analyzed and shows 21 per cent
or over. It Is a question whether the
lake land or the upland will grow the
better beets. Those primarily Inter
ested in sugar beet culture should call
a meeting and invite Mr. Kuhne back
to Salem, and hear what ho has to say.
