SALEM A CANNING CENTER.
Communities, like men, to be f-uccessful must have
some definite object and devote theij" energies to develop
ing it. Salem, sometime when there is another adminis
tration in the state, next year or four years later, will
find one of her objects waiting, that is flax. It will some
time be her greatest industry. In the meanwhile she
lias another that is rapidly developing and which will ere
long put her in the front rank in 'hat especial line, and
that is the canning business. Salem is already a great
fruit center, greater than most of the citizens realize, but
that industry is only cutting its baby teeth. It will re-J
quire 150 cars this year to handle the shipments of green
prunes alone. What Salem canneiip have done this year
. would make an astonishing story to most of us, and this
t.tory will be told in the near future when the season
The building up of this industry requires concerted
effort for the success of a cannery depends largely on
the number of months its plant can be kept at work. Every
month of idleness Is so much loss. I o stabilize the indus
try is an urgent necessity. This should be undertaken by
the Commercial Club, the fruit unions or the grange, or
possibly better yet, by all of them acting together. To
lengthen Ihe season requires that berries or vegetables
. of each season should be provided in sufficient quantities
to keep the canneries running to capacity and even to
compel that capacity to be increased. There should be
some-means taken to provide berries from the earliest,
gooseberries and strawberries clear through the season.
There should be an increased acreage of raspberries, and

mensity of the canning industry here may be gained from
the pear crop just now coming in. The Hunt cannery
alone expects to can two million pounds of pears, more
than half of which will come from the Wallace orchard
across the river. These bring about $18 a ton to the
grower and represent to him $18,000. It will require a
force of MOO workers in the cannery to prepare these for
the market. This illustrates what was said at the be
ginning of this article as to the necessity of keeping the
cannery supplied to capacity throughout the season. In
stead of employing from fifty to onu hundred part of the
reason there should be steady employment for the :U)0
during the whole season. One of the great drawbacks
eo far has Wen the scarcity of pickers. With work for
these from early spring until late in the fall this scarcity
would be overcome. There would be families that would
take up the business as a steady occupation. "The Tick-

besides it would give ideal work ior i amines miring me
entire summer. To the lig families it would appeal es
pecially, for it is an occupation at which the young folks,
too young to earn money at any other occupation, could
;uld materially to the family income and be at the very
healthiest of pursuits while so doing. They would not be
confined, but out in the sunshine ami air developing ro
bust constitutions and laying the foundation for exuber
ant health. Of course the canning industry is in a sense
n side issue to the greater fruit business, for outside mar
kets take care of immense quantities, but the cannery
makes the market certain, and is a safeguard against a
glutted m'arket. In addition to the fruits, such vegetables
us are wanted for canning; string beans, peas and such,
can be grown to fill in the gaps hetwwn the berry and
fruit crops. The Kings Products company has opened
another important branch of the preparing of fruits and
vegetables and its showing since its ."tart has Wn a splen
did one. Salem can be the leading canning city of the
northwest just because she can if hc cans.
No better illustration of the widely different beliefs
and feelings of people is possible than the views held as to
the Kev. Billy Sunday. He attracts thousands, who are
apparently delighted with his per-fervid style, and his
use oi slang. Un the other hand there are many, especial
ly those of maturer years, who think him out of place in
the pulpit and his language even more so. To express it
as he would he "slings too much hell around promiscuous

who do not care to hear and see him do not have to do so
While the gains on the western front are not spec
tacular they have the cheerful trait of beine uninterrunt

swept over earlier in the year and are losing heavily
while so doing. The allies are pressing ahead along a
sixty mile front, and Hindenburg is headed toward the

The Oregon Voter says it is convinced that some of
l ortland s policemen are in cahoots with the bootleggers
and protect them from arrest. This is the parole system
reduced to a working basis without troubling the higher
ups over small infringements of the law.
Germany is telling her people they must prepare for
another winter of War. This is good advicft? for the sum
mer fpllowing will perhaps see it ended and so will re
quire no preparation on their part.
"Essential or non-essential" so far as occupations go
is a hard matter to decide. One thir.g is certain and that

the classification made by the authorises in Washington.

WHERE MARSHAL FOCH LINKS TIGHTER THE SOMME AND AISNE FRONTS
--Marshal Foch has launched a new offensive between the Oise and the Aisne rivers
on a nine-mile front and penetrated the German lines for a maximum depth of two
miles. This advance is part of the welding operations brinrintr the Somme and Aisne
fronts into closer union and effectually seals the two against a German advance
where the armies join. In the vicinity of Lassigny the allied force scontinue to goin,
reaching the outskirts of the village, and also captured Fresnieres, to the north. Brit

Our good, wise president taseeches that we shan't
hang to elms or leeches such gents as may offend: to
show the world we're law abiding, 1 11 forms of frightful
ness deriding, should be our aim and end. We chide the
Huns for being brutal, but protestations seem quite futile,
and we re thrown out of court, if wt take ropes, some vic
tim cinching, and show him that the lawless lynching is
i till our out door sport. We're standing up for all things
moral; we've taken part in Europe's quarrel to set this
planet straight; we need clean hinds, and these we're
lacking if to the elm tree we go packing the hemp for
some poor skate. The time spent oi a lynching function,
where many men, in vain conjunction, throw golden hours
away, might balk the Kaisers Bill and Charley, if it were
spent in reaping banley, or baling clover hay. It is a
waste of men to hang them; far better round them up
and gang them, and send them to the front; there they
may scrap with weapons staple, but dead guys swinging
from a maple can do no useful stunt. This game, to which
we've been addicted should be abolished, or restricted
until the war is done; till this is done the world will sass
us, and view wit hscorn and doubtless class us with Visi
goth and Hun.
