The qnesllon of how to Improve the
lumber maikel so a to make it more
profitable alike to shipper and loggers
seems in a fqir way to solve itself. It is
a recognised fact that the prosperity of
the lumber interest on tbe Columbia
depend upon two things: First, the
ability to get the W to market at a
minimum cost; aud second, to have
tlie lumber manufactured as near the
basis of consumption and diatribiilion
aa possible. IHtring the past month
California parlies have purchased ovor
8,000,000 feel of log in the Cowlits
river alone, and it is prooud to tow
the logs to Han Francisco by construct
ing s Juggins' patent raft to achieve
tin end. It lias been demonstrated
by building a raft iu the form of a
cigar and lashing togvthor with wire
rope, It can be successfully towed uny
distance wiih perfect safety, nays the
Cathlamet Osteite. The tirt raft con
structed on the Joggius principle in
Nova Scotia aud towod to New York
proved s failure owing to being iuutU
cluntly lashed, but several similar rafts,
modeled after this pUn, have shown
conclusively that the Jogfcini flau of
towing logs is nu experiment, but a
realised scientific fact.
The distance from tbe Columbia
river to San Fra.icisco is no greater
thn between Nova Scotia and New
York, and storms and heavy seas on
the Pacific coast are not as common as
on the Atlantic seaboard. This is on
strong argument in favor of tbe new
plan proposed. It is calculated that
the refuse material from the log can
be aold in San Fiancisco for enough
to almost pay the cost of towing;, if
not more. Even the sawdust is counted
. . .i i. : ti
on a a consiaeraoie noni. nuuu
lumber is quoted in San Francisco at
14 per th iintand feet iu cargo lou,
while dressed lumber Is quoted nil the
way from 118 to 920 per thousand feet,
dependent upon the sue and quality
The logs are worth probably 96 in the
Cowlits. hence it can be seen If the
cost of building the raft and towing ill'
not too exenrive, it would leave
good mara-i i for the skipper. It is
claimed that the eiNit of building one
of these raft is very slight, after the
necessary machinery is once iu posi
tion and Iu working order.
This now departure, in the handling
of loga will be looked upon with great
interest by the people of Washington
and Oregon, as depressed lumber

A meetins of tbe citiien ia called
for next Saturday afternoon to devise

when added to the tax already levied,
to build a good school-house .without
the necessity of bonding -the district,
as the school board nave been in

itself to the consideration of taxpayers
