creased price of spruce has turned the
attention of paper makers to a num
ber of other woods, hemlock ranking
ntxt, with 670,000 cords, or 14 per
cent of the otal consumption. More
than 9 per cent was popular, and the
remainder consisted of relatively
small amounts of pine, Cottonwood,
balsam and other woods.
There was a marked increase last
year In the Importation of spruce,
which has always been the most pop
ular wood for pulp. For a number of
years pulp manufacturers of this
country have been heavily Importing
spruce from Canada, since tbe avail
able supply of this wood In the north
central and New England states,
where most of the pulp mills are lo
cated, is not equal to the demand.
Figures Bhow that the amount of this
valuable pulpwood brought into this
country was more than two and one
half times as great In 1907 as in 1899.
In 1907 the importations were larger
than ever before, being 25 per cent
greater than In 1900. The spruce Im
ports last year amounted to more than
one-third of tho consumption of spruce
pulpwood. Only a slightly greater
a mi ni nt of domestic spruce was used
Large quantities of hemlock were
used by tho Wisconsin pulp mills, and
the report shows that the Heaver
State now ranks third in pulp produc
tion, Now York and Maine ranking
first and second, respectively. Poplar
has been used for a long time In the
manufacture of high grade paper, but
the supply of this wood Is limited and
the consumption of It baa not increas
Wood pulp is usually made by either
one of two general processes, mechani
cul or chemical. In the mechanical
process tlio wood, after being cut into
suitable sixes and barked, is held
against revolving grindstones in a
stream of water and thus reduced to
pulp. In tne chemical process the
barked wood is reduced to chips and
cooked in large digesters with chem
icals which destroy the cepientlng ma
terial of the fibers and leave practi
cally pure cellulose. This Is then
washed and screened to render it suit
able for paper-making. The chemicals
ordinarily used aro either bi-sulphite
of lime or caustic soda. A little over
half of tlio pulp manufactured last
year was made by the suplhite pro
cess, and about one-third by tho me
chanical process, the remainder being
produced by the soda process. Much
of the mechanical pulp, or ground
wood as it commonly called, Is used
In tho making of newspaper. It is
never used alone In making white pa
per but is always mixed with some
sulphite fiber to give the paper
strength. -A cord of wood ordinarily
yields about 0110 ton of mechanic?!
pulp or nlipift one-half ton of chemical
pulp. " ' ' v J ' '

HUNTLEY MADE DIRECTOR.
Succeeds Judge Ryan as Member of
City School Board.
William A. Huntley was last night
unanimously elected a member of the
Board of Directors of the city school
district to succeed Judge Thomas F.
Ryan, who presented his resignation
because of his removal to Gladstone
to reside. Judge Ryan has been a
member' of the Board of Education
six years and has always manifested
a deep interest in school matters. His
succesor is well equipped for a mem
bership on the Board and his familiar
ity with the text books of the state
and the courses of study will make
him a very valuable man.
C. N. Greenman and R. Prier were
named as judges, and W. W. Mars as
clerk of the annual school election
which will be held next Monday after
noon from 1 to G P. M. in the city hall

Throng of Oregon City People Attend'
Closing Exercises Saturday.
Willamette school house was filled
Saturday night to over-llowing with
people to witness the graduating ex
ercises of the eighth and ninth grades.
There were at least 100 people pres
ent from Oregon City, and the assem
bly rooms, halls and stairways were
packed with people. The decorations
were elaborately arranged, the class
colors of red and cream being used '
exclusively. American flags formed
the background and wild white mar
guerites were in profusion. The pro
gramme was exceptionally good, and
was carried out just as arranged. Rev.
John M. Linden delivered the class
address, with no attempt at oratory,,
but gave a straight-forward talk to
the graduates, containing plenty of
good advice for the future. The vocal
solos of Mrs. Richard Clark Ganong
were very pleasing and warmly re
ceived, as were the piano numbers of
Miss Alice Goettling and Miss Bertha
Fredericks. The diplomas were pre
sented by Frank Capen, chairman of
the Board of Directors.
West Side Teachers Elected.
The West Oregon City school dis
trict has reelected Prof. T. P. Ken
dall as principal for the coming year
and has also reelected the following
corps of teachers: Miss Martha Koe
rner, second primary; Miss Lilll Sch
mldli. primary; Miss Clara Koerner
and Miss Eva Wash, Bolton school.
There is a vacancy existing In the
intermidate grade, as Miss Lucy E.
Humphry's, who taught last year, has
accepted a position at St. John.
Union School Plan Abandoned.
The attempt to form a union high
school here out of the districts of
Gladstone, West Oregon City, Willam
ette, Canemah and Oregon City will
probably be abandoned, as the notio
es for the annual meetings and elec
tions in Oregon City and Willamette
contain no provision for a vote on the
union school proposition and the law
requires that 10 days notice be given.
The advocates of a high school for
Oregon City will probably bend their
energies to have an eleventh grade
added to the high school course next
September, and a twelfth grade in
Contract Let For Schoolhouse.
The directors of the new Gladstone
