CORVALUS. Or., April 14. The o-
lutton of the problem of making the
timber landa of the State continuously
remunerative, which also meana the
preaerratlon ef the water power,
seems at present to have been found
by the Oregon Agricultural College.
When the work In forestry was aepa-
rated from that In botany and made a
distinct department under Prof.
George W. Peavy, and E. O. Slecke of
the U. S. Government Forest Service
was added to the faculty, the facilities
for Instruction and for practical work
by the students were greatly increased
and some immensely valuable expert
mental work. In silviculture haa alnce
been atarted on Mary Peak and else
A email forest nursery haa been
atarted on the campua at the aouth of
the horticultural greenhouses, where
the cln.se In silviculture have prac
tical work In growing the young foreat
tree to solve reforeatatlnn problem.
They are taught how to grow the aeed
llngs, and how to tran.plant them aue
cessfully, with all the meihoda of re
forestation In cut-over or burned off
districts. The Austrian pine. Norway
apruce, European larch, Scotch pine,
white pine, or Important limber pine
of India which la of considerable com
mercial value, all are being grown on
thla nuraery plot. "
. On Mary Peak valuable experi
mental work to determine the relative
merit of fall and spring planting of
various kind of timber waa begun
last fall, and la being continued thla
spring. Experimental plots liave been
sown, both fall and aprlng. to. Austrian
pine, Norway apruce, European larch,
and Scotch pine. Careful record will
be kept of the December and March
plantings, through which It la hoped
to obtain Information which will prove

a bit of land which can be uaed aa a

added to the campua.

FISHERMEN WHO VISIT MILK
CREEK FIND ITS SURFACE
COVERED WITH SAWDUST.
A quartet of local fishermen were
out to Milk Creek for a little sport
Friday. Tbey bad their sport but Rot ' -
few fish, part of which wa not tbelr
Condition at certain point oa Milk
Creek need attention of the. fish com
missioner. Below the saw mill there
I a stretch of water for at least a
half mile where the water can scarce
be seen for a heavy scum of aaw duat
Thl haa a deleterlou effect on fish.
and In consequence ha a bad effect
on the fishing. There were also logs
and floating debrl strewn over the .
surface of the stream to the annoy- .
ance of fishermen and to th detriment
of the people living In that section.
There 1. a State law wnicn proviaes
that no sawdust shall be dumped into
running streams, and .hall not be so
strewn that the raise may wash U
Into the stream. The condition found
at Milk Creek i in direct violation of
thla law, it ia ald. So far aa wa to
be aeen on the surface no effort 1. .
made to keep the sawdust from wash
ing . Into the stream, and tn aome
place. It la evident that there Is. pains
taken to have the duat wash in ao
that It may float aay and eave the
mill men the expense of putting It out
of the way of the workmen with the
least possible expense.
An attempt wa. made some time
ago. It I. aald. to put a atop to the pol
lution of thla atrearn. The matter was
taken up before the grand Jury but
for some reason It waa dropped
either It wa. too much trouble for the
Jury to go and aee for themselves or
no one took any Interest In placing'
the evidence before the Jury, In any
event the matter w. not given further
attention. A. there la a flagrantVtola
tlon of the law In condition, on Milk
Creek, and aa the grand Jury soon to
convene will be sworn to do its whole
duty, It may not be amlsa to auggeat
that Milk Creek receive attention at
the coming aesslon of the Jury.
