Without overestimating the Iron
and steel Industries, we all must point
With pride to California's inventors and
mechanics who have headed the list
In Improvements and advancements in
all sorts of machinery In tlit> past 60
years. On ocean, on land, in forest
and city, California products have led
and still lead the world.
It Is not necessary to mention with
what great pride California points to
tlio liist centrifugal pump and water
wheels made here, besides the ever
popularized mining machinery which
in the early days gave Han Krancisco
all over the -world the reputation it
still holds for making the most dur
able and efficient iron and Bteel prod
ucts of every description.
Nor do we in our commendation of
our great industries forget to mention
the ship industry that Is so closely re
lated to the Iron and steel commodities
and that has given California a world
wide reputation for its battleships built.
We can point with Interest to the Jap
anese man-of-war Chitose: in the days
of shipbuilding In its great advance

Charleston and San Francisco, the
battleship »,Oregon, and the armored
coast defense monitor Monterey.

fully larking in many ways in our
restrictions to compete rattier than
price or quality. Perhaps one of the
greatest faults lies in our Inability to
advertise the Iron and steel com
modities with the limited field that
we h-ave had for advertising, and the
fact that we have not had the num
ber of solicitors and business getting
agents In the past that has been
monopolised by eastern concerns. These
conditions are changing, however, and
with the aid of our labor conditions
we will be able to compete with the
rest of the world. I_et us hope that the
employers and employes will get to

all, they are both dependent one upon
However that condition may be, the
Iron and steel Industries aro showing,
with the new lields that have been
opened up for them In the matter of
oil, fruit and reclamation lands, that
more than compare with the mining
fields of early days, the creative and In
ventive powers of the mechanics and
employe™ to provide machinery that
will cultivate and facilitate the greater
development of those new conditions.
We have proved the exceptional
qualities of distillate running gas en
gines, which have made our reputa

The oil fields have made California
famous, it was necessary to Improvise

conditions that brought about the great

The sugar and beet Industries and
the refining of the same form another

Steering gear, smelter equipments,
planetary machinery, dough mixers,
propellers, marine and stationary en-
Bines, agricultural machinery, trans
mission machinery, laundry machinery,
saw machinery, lumber and flour ma
chinery, are only a few of the gro:it
amount of iron and steel products that
have put us foremost in the market of
the world. Drilling machines, struc

Ornamental iron has in many cases
forced eastern competition from this

architectural beauty. Although cast

We could go on Indefinitely describ
ing the great value and reputation of
our iron and steel lnduatiiet and tlio
great constructive results' that hnve
made possible the modern city of San
Francisco and the other parts that are
dependent upon California for iron and
steel. And yet our average cftixen of
the state does not fully appreciate
what this means for the greater pop
ulation and future development of
It can be appropriately said that
Iron and steel is the foundation of the
world, for on these commodities are
based the greater development of same.
Our machine shops, representing the
turning and finishing of the first molds
of iron, excel In their patents and
modern equipment, and are even build
ing airships and other modern vehicles
Our boiler shops In tholr construc
tion of tanks and boilers excel any
other boilers made. Without exaggera
tion, they are 50 per cent greater in
their efficiency and durability. This is
brought about by more hand work and
finer labor construction.
Our saws turned here and completed
ready for the lumber mills and fac
tories are incomparable and surpass
any others made. It Is a well recorded
fact that a boiler or saw made In Cali
fornia has never been known to. ex
plode or break.
Our steel forging shops are forging
shafts and axles that compare with
anything in this line In the country.
The springs are made of the best ma
