LEECH TO GO
The Corvallis public wasgriev
ed this morning to learn' that D,
H. Leech, pastor at the M. E.
church the past two years; had
been transferred to Grants Pass.
The change came as a very great
surprise for the Methodist con

desire' for Mr. Leech's return.
His work has been highly suc
cessful and he was universally
liked. The Oregonian says one

Things are doing on Mary's
River flat. The Corvallis Lumber
Manufacturing Co. has erected
two buildings there and is now
engaged in putting up the, big
mill. Far out on the, point of
land formed by the junction of
the Willamette and Mary's rivers,
the first timbers are in. place,
these being for the long runway
from Mary's ..river, down which
logs will be floated . and then
hoisted. The first construction
work is substantial, the timbers
being very 'heavy and set upon
cement foundation. The indica
tion is . that . Messrs. Gerlinger
and McCready are building for
permanency. The work doneat
this time indicates that - the mill
will be of size sufficient to make
Corvallisites feel good. The
work yet to bev done will be push
ed rapidly now, and the promise
is that the new industry will be
operation in less than two
months. It is expected that the
new mill will employ from forty
to seventy-five men.and already
some of their expert help from
the Black Rock countrv is here.
Several houses for officials and
employes are being built. The
