or Sam L. Rogers, of the bureiu of the
census department of commerce, it
consists of a summary comparing the

The figures, are preliminary and sub

may be found from a further exami
nation cf ttiu original reports.
The census of 1SH4, like that of
jfi(), with r f.'rencc to manufacturers,
excluded the hand trades, the building
trades, and the neighborhood indus

in the census reports may mean more

by fa single indiidu.Jl, partnership,
corporation, or other owner or operator
and are located in the same towu or
The reports were taken for tho cal
endar year ending December 31, 1914,
whenever the system of bookkeeping
permitted figures for that period to
be secured, but when the fiscal year
of an establishment differed from ine
calendar year a report w.ts obtained
for the operations of that establish
ment for it 3 fiscal year falling most
largely within the calendar wear 1911.
Percentages of Increase
The population of Oregan at !',ie
census of 1910 was 672,7oT, and it is
estimated that it was 783,000 on Juiy
The summary shows a consistent in
crease for the census of 1914, as com
pared with that for 1909. In the or
der of their importance, from a per
centage standpoint, the several items
rank as follows: Capital, 3ti.fi per cent;
salaries, 40.4 per cent; salaried em
ployees, 2".(i per cent; primary horse
power, 2o.3 per cent; cost of materials,
15.1 per cent; value of products, lo
jer cent; value added by manufacture,
Sj.5 per cent; wages, 5.2 per cent; m.iu
b:r of establishments, 3.3 per cent; ana
vage earners, 0.3 per cent.
The capital invested, as reported ii.
1914, was iji 130,500,000, i gain of
f-"0,41 8.000, or 50.fi per cent, oer .9,
0S2,000 in 1909. The average capital
er establishment was npproximaltly
(-00,000 in 1914 and $40,000 in 1909. In
mis connection it should be stated, t'.iat
t.ie inquiry contained in the census
schedule calls for the total amount of
capital both owned and borrowed, in
vested in the business, but excludes
tnc v.ilue of rented property, plant,
or equipment which was employed in
the conduct of nianufacnuring enter
prises. In the final bulletins and re
ports the rental paid fur sm h prop
erty will be shown separately.

Tho value of products was $109,762,-
000 in 1914, and $9,1,00.3,000 in 1909,
the increaso being $10,7.37,000, or 18
per cent. The average per establish
ment was approximately $47,000 in
1914 and $41,000 in 1909.
The value of products represents
their selling value or price at the
plants as actually turned out by tne
lactones during the census year and
does not necessarily have any relation
to the amount of sales for that year.
The values under this head include
amounts received for work done on
materials furnished by others.
Value Added by Manufacture
The value added by manufaetuie
represents tho difference between the
cost of materials used and the value ot
the products manufactured from them.

circles of the state house this morning
that the tire which wrecked three of

recently was of incendiary origin and
was started by two convicts, It was
reported that the names of the convicts

r STATE NEWS ;
Eogue River Courier: An offer of $77
per ounce for the platinum output of
his mine on the Illinois river has been
declined by Jeo. B. Anderson, who will
hold the precious metnl. wnrth nooriv
fivo times its wieght in gold, for a rise
in uiu marser. f our years ago Mr. An
derson was carefully picking out the
white metal that was too henw fn ni.h
out of the yellow dust and throwing it
into the discard so that it might not
spoil the appearance of tho cold. Rut
today it is a different story, and the 10
uuui-.es wmcn Mr. Anderson brought to
town yesterday could be exchanged for
$770 in. cold. When th clinr!ilo nf
the white metal had been determined,
iur. Anuerson commenced saving it for
the market, his first sale having oeen
of 10 ounces that brought, him $29 an
ounco three years ago. The Anderson
mine gives a recovery of about that
much platinum alonir with its irnl.l in
c-ery winter's run, and tho value is
rast mounting Higher.
Mcdford Mail: A sample of sugar
oeets planted on the Oregon-Utah Sugar
company's contracted acreage in the
Central Point and Meadows districts
was exhibited today to show the re
marknble growth attained this parly in
the season. A portion of the sample
bunch was raised on black loam and the
other on clay loam, the seed having
been planted in Mareh. The growth
in each case is large and apparently
vigorous. The beets are nymmetrically
formed and have excellent color. They
promise an excellent crop nnd ore an
other assurance that the Rogue river
soils are superior for sugar beet pro
duction. Lake County Kxaminer: The artesian
well gt tho Lakeview ranch is down 18,3
feet at the present time. Work was dis
continued for a time on account of the
non-arrival of easing. Artonian water
has beeu struck, but at the present
time there is only a small flow. How
ever, the water rises 10 feet above the
water table. Artesian water was first
encountered before the drill had gone
down a hundred feet, and the deeper
the well was drilled, the nearer the
water came to the surface. Mr. Powell,
who is doing the work, is confident
that an excellent flow of water will be
otruck by going a tittle deeper.
If plans which are being discussed in
Mninhfield among a number of capital
ists mature a new industry will be
established on Coos bay that will r;ive
employment to 500 men, says the
Reword. R. O. Smith and Frank B.
Waite are the promoters of a briquet
ting plant which would have an initial
output of 2.30 tons daily. Smith hns
been experimenting with Coos bay coal
and claims to have perfected a briquet
which leaves none of tho moistur1, ash
or volatile matter and will bnm Kpial
to the best Eastern anthracite. The
company can produce briquettes at. a
price that will compare more than
favorably with the present figures for
coal and have, besides, the by-products,
such as gas, power fr electricity und
The promoters claim that the briquetr
tes they would manufacture would be
bought by the United Htates navy
which is now paying $10 per ton for
steaming coal on the Pacific Cosst and
this company eould sell at $7 per ton
and make a good profit. "Establish
ment of a briquetting plant would
mean,' ' says the Record, ' 'a naval coal
ing station here, and perhaps a baw as
well." The cost of such an industry is
heavy and would mean about $300,000
as an investment.
