President Thlelsen's Report
"To tho Membors of tho Greator Sa
lem Commercial Club:
"During tho two years this club
has boon In oxlBtonco, much has been
accomplished for tho advancement of
Salem and vicinity, through tho com
bined efforts of ofllcors and members
of tho club. 'Lost wo forget,' It may
bo woll to recall somo of theso things
to your memory, and at Uio same ttmo
draw your attention to somo other
things Uiat may bo done for our city
by Uio Incoming administration, pro
vided you bnck them up by' tho proper
"Almost tho first matter to be
brought to tho attontion of the club
was to assist In demonstrating that
flax could bo grown hero for its fibre
at a profit to tho growor and manufac
turer. It has now been demonstrated
by two years' of oxporlmont that this
can bo dono, and Mr. Dossc and his
associates aro preparing to establish
plants for retting and scutching flax,
and so soon as enough fiber can bo
produced to kcop a mill employed
thoy will orcct a linen mill at some
point to convert tho fiber Into Hnon. If
tho club "had succeeded In doing noth
ing moro than this In two years, the
tlmo and all ' tho money would have;
been well spent, and It Is the duty of
this organization to encourage tho cul
turo of flax and to seo to It that the
linen mill is located hore, and nooth
A request from tho club Induced
tho Southern Pacific Company to oroct
a noat passongor shed and waiting
room at tho stato fair grounds, which
action hna beon groatly appreciated
by tho patrons of tho company during
thoso wlntor rains.
"Fooling tho need of propor' Immi
gration lltoratu ro, tho propor bureau
compiled an excollont paraphlat, the
unlqm covor of which has made. the
'Adam and Evo, Oregon' prfniphlot
known over tho ontlre Eastern coun
try; flvo thousand copies of this woro
printed by Uio club, and later, at, the
solicitation of tho Immigration bureau
of tho Harrlman roads, the Biibject
mattor having beon revised, 100,000
copies woro glvon to this Immigration
bureau for distribution. Tho club If
about out of pamphluta for their own
uso and for tho use of tho Oregon In

aro at tho' union depot In Portland. I
! think the lltoraturo furnished to this
bureau does us fully as much good as
any that 'Is distributed through any
other channel, and should be kept sup
Fur several years Salem has be;m
called upon by the Stato Hoard of Ag
rlrulture to furnlsn special attractions
for Salem dny at the state fair, pnd
j through tho efforts of the old chamber
1 of commerce, and later of Uits club,
their requirements have betn fairly
well met. mll this year, whon wr
were called upon to subscribe $1000.
N"I flnd this entry upon the journal
uf December 10. of last year 'The
president reported to the club that tin.
president and secretary of the Oregon
state fair had met the executive com
mittee of this club on the morning of
this day, and had ashed that the c'ubi
endorse, and prepare for. the subscrip
tion of n puree of $1000. In behalf of
the Greater Salem stake to be run for
at the state fair of 193, and. after duq
discussion, it was ordered that the no
tinn of the executive committee In
entertaining the proposition be, aud
tho same is, hereby ratified, and the
elub stands pledged ot the raising of
said purse for 1903.
"Tho olub being at that time en
gaged in tho fcadeator to raise funds
for Uio 100,000 pamphlets, it was not
docmod advisablo to do anyhtng for
thn'nnmn nnUl'lfttor." and tho commit
tcoayln thojimattor infiand .falling.
to do anything unui the weoK or we
fair, I regret to say, that thoy were
not ablo to ralso from our citizens
oren half of tho amount pledged. This
is tho only occasion whero Uio good
faltlj f tho club in keeping its en
gagements could bo called in quesUon.
anil I am informed there Is much dls
satisfaction among tho members of
tho stato board of agriculture at Uio
non-fulflllmcnt of our pledge, and I
would recommend that this mattor be
taken up with them by Uio secretary,
and, If our explanation Is not suffi
cient, to soo what can bo dono to sat
isfy tho board, as Uio stato fair, under
Its" present management, is too valu
ablo to us to allow any doubt as to
SaicmTs loyalty to tho fair and the
stato board of agriculture.
"I congratulate Uio elub upon hav
ing alilcd In Uio extinguishment of the
debt o( Willamette University. A,
lafgo number of pledges having been
obtained by tho University, condl
tloned upon Uio amount being raised,
to retire tho ontlro Indebtedness by a
specified Umo, wero about' to lapse by
expiration of tlmo limit, being applied
to by President Coleman, who asked
tho assistance of tho club a commit
too was appointed by whoso enorgetlc
efforts and Uio liberality of our citi
zens, tho amount was raised to free
tho InsUtutlon of debt. Dut fow of
our citizens ,reallzo tho commercial
valuo of Uio University and tho vari
ous business colleges, and private
schools of our city, to say nothing of
tho advantago to tho cause of educa
tion and culture,
"Not tho least of the achlovomonts
of tho club has been tho adoption of
tho amendments to Uio old charter and
tho oxtenslon of Uio corporato limits
of tho city. Tho Initiative In this
movemont was takon by this body,
heartily responded to by tho city
council and progrosslvo clUzena I ro
grot Uiat this, oncountored tho strong
opposition of somo of cur loading citi
zens, but I am suro that tlmo will dem
onstrate Uio Importance of bringing
tho legitimate territory of Salem
within tho control of tho health, po
lio ennd flro departments of tho city.
"By direction of th"o club, tho execu
tive committoo had a map prepared
for tho uso of our congressional dele
gation, showing tho continued and se
rious erosion of tho w'est bank of tho
river opposite tho city, and tho serlcus
encroachment of tho gravol bar upon
our harbor. Encouragement has boon
hold out to us by membors of tho dele
gation that we may reasonably expect
relief through tho govornmont, and
tho delegation would do tholr best to
secure It for us.
"A n!d-8iimmor carnival was held
horo during tho week ending July 4th
This involved a vast amount of work
at tho hands of tho secretary and hie
various Biib-coramlttces. It brought a
largo numbor of people In from thr
country and nearby towns, and tho ex
collont music and clover entertain
ments wero greatly onjoyed by our
citizens. While It failed to add anv.
thing to tho funds of tho club, wo had
at least Uio satisfaction of knowing
that no call was mado upon tho Guar
"Through tho exertions of a com
mltteo of tho club, a contract has beon
entered, Into with Captain SkJnnoM
