TWO WATCHMEN NOW.
At the Corvallis Sawmill Suspicions
as to who Tried to Burn the
Surmise and conjecture is still
rife with reference to the late at
tempt to burn the Corvallis sawmill
and lumber yard. Suspicions of
all kinds are privately expressed,
but no .evidence sufficiently strong
to warrant an arrest has developed.
Officers have strong notions about
the matter, but they cannot act
without more evidence upon which
to make a stand. -
Two nighowatdhmen instead of
one are regularly on duty as a pre
caution against further attempts of
the sort. They are Robert Camp
bell and James , Howard, both of
whom have been sworn in as spe
cial police officers. Watchman
Pierce who was on duty the night
of the fire has retired from the em
ploy. An enormous quantity of
lumber of all kinds is stored in the
mill yards, its value aggregating
a larger sum perhaps, ; than any
stock of lumber ever in the yard,
even in the days when Max Friend
ly carried great stocks, and the so
licitude of the owners under the
circumstances to guard against
further attempts to bur the estab
lishment is not surprising.
