Enured in the Posloffine at Cntton Lcod, Idaho, as Second-claw matter. By IT hushed Every Friday -THE Camas Prairie Publishing Co. TANNATT & HOGAN, Business Managers E. T. T ANN ATT) Editor. FRIDAY, MAR. 24, 1893. TF iE, ROLLER MILL Two Hundred Barrel Long Process Mill to be Estab lished on the Prairie. A GREAT BOOM FOR THE FARMERS. A Description of the Vait ness of the Enterprise - Some of the Benefits to be Derived. Cottonwood has been active during the past week over the proposition presented by a party of capitalists for the erection of a two luindred barrel npw process roller mill on Camas Prairie. But little estimate can he made of the value of this mill to the Prairie, as it iB not intended to supply the local trade alone, but to he used as a shipping mill, This mill will consume one thousand bushels of wheat per day and four cords of wood daily, give employment for fifteen men in the mill, and eight teams per day will leave the mill to deliver the flour to the boats at Lewiston. At present, the only market our farmers have is the shipping of hogs and cattle, with what small amount of wheat as can he used by the mills supplying the local demand of the prairie. This mill will consume gt least 300, 000 bushels of wheat per annum, which will mean a market for that many bushels, which, to gether with the local mills now here, will possibly consume 400, 000 bushels of grain annually. Now if our farmers should raise this amount of wheat on the Prairie that article, with the present lack of railroad facilities, would he a good standard of the poverty of its owner, as he could not get sufficient cash from same to even pay for harvesting, With the advent of this mill, we have a market; and as the firm ex pect to pay cash fpr wheat, we have a cash market for over four times the amount of wheat that has ever been raised, at one sea son, on the Prairie. Again, four cords of wood per diem, means work for wood cutters and haul ing for teams, and the farms that are now being cleared of timber, can he so cleared to a profit, Hauling of flour means money to the freighter who now hauls his empty wagon to Lewiston for the incoming freight, This ad ditional employment means new men, new homes, increase in the value of lands, additional work for saw mills and merchants, new churches, schools and teachers, lower taxes and additional taxa ble property, the hastening of railway construction to the Prai rie. In fact we could fill every , ^ um " of ! hl l.P? pGr withthe j i advantages derived. Again, this mill will be a dou ble roller, or Long process mill. This means a better grade of flour, or what is commonly known as "patent flour." The machin ery will be of the latest improv ed pattern and flour of a grade to meet the competition of Spo kane and coast mills will by necessity be manufactured in or der to successfully meet such competition. What the proprietors now need is a guarantee on the part of the people of Camas Prairie that they nil plant sufficient wheat to evable this mill to lie kept rui ning, as the present amount ra's ed on the Prairie (providing that very bushel was delivered to his mill), would not keep it running four months. The pro prietors guarantee thirty-three pounds of flour for every bushel of wheat brought in exchange, which our farmers will recognize is three pounds per bushel better than they have ever received on the Prairie, not taking into con sideration the improved grade of same. To-day money loaning and insurance companies are back ward about coming to the Prai rie, for the reason that we have no market. This in turn means a scavcety of pioney and the holding hack of the developing of the Prairie With this mill at work, companies will he anx ious to he among us, and we will not only soon see the Prairie yel low with its abundant harvests of wheat, hut every nook and c trner will he cultivated in order to produce the hay, potatoes,hogs, horses, cattle, etc., etc., that are necessary to supply the demand. Our farmers are the men most ly benefited by this enterprise ,and vie trust that at the several meetings that will he held on the Prairie to develop the plan, they will not only encourage the en terprise by their presence, hut will make it an assured fact, by guaranteeing the planting of a sufficient number of acres to jus tify the plant being placed on the prairie. These men mean business, and their proposition is based on sound business prin ciples, and it/simply rests with our people (not of Cottonwood alone hut of the entire Prairie), whether this mill is constructed at once or not. What Newspapers Do. Yakima Herald; Many peo ple do not appreciate what they owe to the newspapers. They convince themselves that tlieir duty is done if they subscribe for a local paper and pay their sub scriptions. They do not, in many instances, recognize that to the newspaper more than any other factor is due the up-holding of town apd country, That the newspaper is the medium by which the outside world is in formed of advantages of soil, climate, school facilities, manu facturing openings, production and business opportunities, and is therefore the means of creating population and business, enhanc ing the values of property and enriching the individual, The citizen who withholds his sub scription from the local newspa per, the business man who fails to advertise, or who for petty saving sends away from home for his job work, or aims a blow at his home newspaper by en couraging the establishment of competing job offices, is not do ing his duty to his best friend and his own interests, nor to the community in which he resides. Year in and year out the publish er labors for his patrons and for the whole people, and during seasons when business is fairly good he establishes a standard which he constantlv«aims to im prove. There can he no retreneh ment during financial depressions j and dull periods, hut rather an i increase of expenditure, and thus : the Olympia and Spokane papers, to proclaim that consolidation is it goes on until all resources are exhausted and a faithful friend and alley is rewarded for valua ble services by being forced, like proclaim that consolidation is preferable to certain financial ruin in a single-handed and val iant battle for many who reap the benefits, hut fail in apprecia tion and support.
