FOR EL PflSO IT PRESENT THE
James G-. McNary After Trip Through the East Cites
What Factories Are Doing For Other Localities
and Urges That El Pasoans Combine From This
Time Forward To Locate Factories Here.
Y RECENT trip east brought
home to me more than ever
before the realization of
what I believe to be El Paso's great-
est need" replied James G. McNary
president of the El Paso Clearing-
house association and of the First
National bank when asked for Infor-
mation gained on his trip to Wash-
ington New York Boston and other
"I think it would be Interesting to
have a guessing contest on this ques-
tion. The result would undoubtedly
represent a wide variety of views. I
can imagine them covering some such
range as conventions trade excur-
sions cantonments educational in-
stitutions smoke consumers play-
grounds recreation centers less wind
and more rain a moral uplift elimi-
nation of billboard advertising re-
moval of the tracks from the heart
of the city agricultural development
and dralnace for the valley etc- etc.
All of these things are good and most
or mem are greatly to tie desired.
None of them in my opinion how-
ever represent El Paso'3 most vital
"If I were to name the three tlSngs
EI Paso needs the most. I would say
First factories: second factories
and third factories.
Indntrlal Development Needed.
"Industrial development it seems
to me. is the city's greatest need. If
El Paso is to become a great and
prosperous city we must have a great
increase in the number of manufac-

Newell Dwight Hi 11 Is. on the occasion
of his recent visit here brought out
most vividly the fact that this the

dustrial age. This war Is being

cause Germany had reached the peak
of her industrial development and
not only could not progress but must
retrograde unless she could find new
sources of coal and Iron.
IVorl.l Jealou of United States.
"All tbe world is jealous of the
i nlted States because of her -marvelous
Industrial activity. The United
States Steel corporation the irreatest
industrial concern the world has ever
known has recently been piling up
nrofits at the rate of a million dol-
lars a dav.
"We think of New York City as a
crreat financial and business center.
but as a matter of fact it is one of
me greatest manuracturint: cities on
the face of the earth. Within the
limits of the city there are 34.000
factories which employ about 700000
wage earners representing an output

and a half million dollars a day. or a.

"There are many cities In the coun-
try as large or larger than EI Paso
whose growth and prosperity is based
i practically the development of one
single manufacturing industry. Take
I r instance the city of Akron. O. Its
tWulation has increased 75 per cent
in s.x years until it is now more than
double the size of this city. A few
years ago we would have regarded it
4 as a one horse town not to be thought
f of as competing with El Paso in real
Importance. This amazing growth and
prosperity Is the result of the devel-
opment of the rubber Industry. Its
rubber factories employ 60.000 labor
ers a day. One factory alone employs
I ve times as many laoorers as an
tie factories. foundries railroad
shops etc in El Paso put together

Watches and Steel.
"On my eastern trip I had the oppor
tunity of eoinsr through the Waltham
watch factory at Waltham Mass. This
wonderful industry employs 4000 men
and women. It manufactures 3000
t.me pieces every day. Of the highest
grade of automobile clocks alone. It
turns out 300 every day. In addition
to its Treat force of workers its
equipment in the way of labor saving
machines represents a marvel or in
The wonderful development of the
steel Industry is apparent at a glance
to one traveling east over the Penn-
sylvania railroad. Up and down the
rivers at Pittsburgh great new fac-
tories can be seen in all stages of
construction and the face of the sun
is literally veiled with the smoke from
the great foundries and furnaces. (I
might say In passing that if we are
going to get more lactones in .i
Paso let us get them w:th smoke con-
Focus on Factories.
"In enumerating the things that 1
Paso lacked I did not mention public
spirit Certainly the city has an
abundance of this splendid quality as
shown by the recent Liberty loan and
Red Cross camnalsns. It is apparent
that the energy and public spirit of
the people of this city when concen-
trated on any one object can bring as-
tonishing results. I would like to see
the organized public spirit of this
city as represented primarily by the
chamber of commerce focused for a
few yeara In a great effort to build
up this city along Industrial lines.
"We know that among the greatest
contributing factors to the Importance
of El Paso are the wonderful copper
and other mining Industries In the
surrounding districts of New Mexico
end Arizona They have been devel-
oped by great outside corporations
and the people of this city can enjoy
the benefits but cannot claim the
What We Did Not Work For.
"The importance of El Paso as a
center of the great cattle breeding
country and also as a railroad center
Is again due to natural conditions
rather than to the energy or efforts of
our people. When It comes to defi-
nite progress in the line of city build-
ing as a result of all of our organized
or individual efforts there are. after
( all not a great many acnievements to
establishments I venture to say with-
out questionins the records chose El
Paso because of her natural location.
Of the railroad shops again the same
thing can probably be said
"Of manufacturing establishments
of importance we have the cement
plant the grain and milling company
the foundries and machine companies
the El Paso Milling company's won-
derful wood working plant which
wilL once Mexico Is settled be a great
factor In the city's Industrial life: the
El Paso Refining company Kohlberg
CIsar company bottling works and
doubtless a number of others of vary
ing importance which I do not at tnts
minute recall. More recently we have
the snlendid new Dackincr plant which
Joe Peyton has about completed; but
all of these combined represent a very
small Industrial development maeea.
for a city of El Paso's commercial
and geographical Importance.
Rich Resources Nearby.
"This region is rich in raw mate-
rials of every description wool cot-
ton sand for glass hides for leather
copper and all the metals and un-
doubtedly resources of iron and steel
not yet developed.
The business men of Dallas for the
past 15 years have concentrated their
organized efforts toward the securing
of factories and assembling plants for
their city. They have what I under-
stand to be is one of the greatest
harness and saddlery factories In the
world. It seems to me tnat ti faso s
efforts have been directed too largely
toward the securing of conventions
and other movements good in them
selves but not of sufficient perma
nent and lasting benefit. I believe
that in the long run a button factory
would be of more benefit to our city
than a bankers' convention and a
clothes pin factory would form a basis
of more permanent prosperity than a
cattlemen's convention. Conventions.
cantonments half million dollar hign
schools and court houses high tax
rates and small pay rolls cannot be
the basis of permanent prosperity and
will not. In the long run. make a city.
Smoke stacks and pay rolls and manu-
factured products are the things which
will put the rest of the world paying
tribute to iii i-aso.
Natural Manufacturing Center.
"One may answer that the city is
not naturally adapted to De a manuiac-
turing center because of tne sparseiy

said when the cement plant was built
but the fears of the pessimist have
not been realized in this Instance. The

flour mill which is now working night
and day supplying El Paso and the
great southwest with flour. The rich
and rapidly developing country about
us is undoubtedly able to support cot-
ton factories woolen mills shoe fac
tories tanneries iron ana steel plants
tho list micht be creatly prolonged.
These things will not come of them-
selves. In most instances they must
be gone after and- inducements offered.
"Most cities of any Importance now-
adays can boast of a Ford assembling

these lines will require not only or-
ganized public effort as represented
by the chamber of commerce but a
