Glass Factory Located Here
Ought To Do Large Busi
ness In Northwest
Why wouldn't Salem be a good loca
tion for a glass fnctoryt
Fully :t00 carloads of empty glass
wore shipped into Salem this year
to meet tho bottling demand here.
Few people here have had any idea of
the magnitude of the local demand or
realize the amount of money being sent
out of tho city for products of the gins
Most of these bottles come from the
east, since the loganberry juice factor
ies use a high grade bottle, which comes
much higher from San Fraacisco. the
only Pacific coast city having a factory.
They are compelled to bring the white
sand used in the better grade of glass
products from Belgium iu ballast and
their supply has been uncertain since
the European war broke out. Z lines
ville, Ohio, fnctories probably supply
the larger part of the buttles being used
ia Salem at the present time, and the
demand is so great that prices are stead
Salem has plenty of sand for the
cheaper grade of glass and if the bet
ter quality is lacking it could be
brought here just as cheaplv as the San
Francisco factory secures it from Bel
gium. This is a field that it might be profit
able for the Comemrcinl club to investi
gate, since the market for glass pro
ducts is expanding so rapidly .in the
northwest, and the Yield will no doubt
attract investors soon who will choose
sonic city in this section for their oper
ations. Playground Committee

LEMBERG MUNICIPAL THERTER, PNO
I.emberg, the capital of Gnlicia, is one of the principal objective points of the
present Russian operations against the Germans and Austro-HUngarians, and
the Teutons will fight hard before yielding this important city to their ene
mies. A railroad runs from Brodv, recently taken uv the Hussions, to I.em-
berg, and the two cities are about fifty miles apart. Lemberg was conquered
by the Russians on September 2, 1914, and retnken by the Teuton forces in
June, 1915. The Russiaus renamed tho
lish name. The city has a population of 200,000 and is an important Austro
Hungiiiian militnry station. It was founded in the thirteenth century. Pic
tures -show the municipal theatre iu I.tmberg and a group of Austrian soldiers

The smoke which is usually so man

summer rains and the lingering heavy
