Gray's Harbor Mills May All
Be Shut Down.

ders Manufacture of Lumber
In Washington Profitless.
HOQUIAM, Wash., April 28. (Special.)
tChe following is the result of an inter
view obtained from one of the prominent
loggers of this city today regarding the
present log and lumber market
That there are too many loga in the
waters of Gray's Harbor goes without
oaying. That there is no money in the
manufacture of lumber Is also true. The
53.60 rate made to the Booth-Kelly Lumber
Company by Traffic Agent Stubbs, of the
Southern Pacific, makes the profits on the
products of Gray's Harbor a great deal
loss. That there will have to be a closer
down of some description before the sea
son 13 over is an assured fact and may
corns sooner than expected by a. great
"If the loggers- come to an agreement
to close down it will be for an indefinite
period, as at the present price of logs
and the scale received they are losing
money and cannot possibly replace their
product In the shape of stumpage on
Gray's Harbor. One of the big loggers in
trying to sell some logs in Aberdeen yes
terday to a mill which usually takes large
quantities was told that the mill would
probably not need any more logs this
season. When asked what they would do
the mlllman said he would probably go
fishing, as he expected a tight shut-down
beginning the first of the month, which
seemed to please him very much.
"He said their firm had not done any
thing but swap dollars since the first of
the year and with the price of lumber
still gclng down he did not see how they
could run much longer. He said he could
not expect the loggers to make any fur
ther cut and he could see nothing in sight
but a complete shut-down for an indefi
"As Gray's Harbor is one of the great
lumber centers of the State of Washington
this may help the market a little, but it
will only stimulate other points that are
producing lumber at a cheaper rate than
"It will cause untold want and misery
should the shut-down come about, and it
is hoped it can be averted, but the know
ing ones said it cannot, and seem to wel
ELLIS LOSES THE METEORITE.
Oregon City Jury Declares the Steel
Company the Owner.
OREGON CITY. Or.. April 2S. (Special.)
The Jury In the replevin suit of the Ore
gon Iron & Steel Company vs. Ellis
Hughes, for possession of a meteorite dis
covered near this city last Winter, found
for the plaintiff.
The defendant, Ellis Hughes, was
charged with having removed the meteor
from land belonging to the plaintiff.
The property In dispute is a metallic
mass weighing about ten tons, and Is the
largest meteorite ever found in the United
States, while there is but one other in the
-world of greater size. In defending the
title of the defendant to the meteor, the
defense Introduced some Indian tradition
of an ingenious invention to the effect
that the meteor had been located on the
land in question for nearly 70 years and
had been used as a receptacle for poison
ous deposits Into which Indian warriors
would dip their arrows Just before an en
gagement. Two local Indians were called
by the defense and testified to these facts
in support of the claim that the metallic
deposit was personal property.
This Is the second case of the kind that
has ever been tried in the United States.
ALASKA BRIDGE THREATENED
Streams on All-American Route Are
Out of Banks.
VANCOUVER BARRACKS, Wash.,
April 2S. (Special.) Telegraphic report
from Alaska has been received at this
headquarters that the Government bridge
across the Tonslna River, on the All
American trail from Valdes to Eagle City,
Is in great danger of being washed away
by the great floods that are raging in the
rivers of Alaska. An appropriation of $500
is asked for to protect the bridge and ap
proaches. The All-American trail was constructed
at an Immense expense to the Govern
ment for the maintenance of the tele
graphic lines during the Winter, and the
bridge is the only means of traffic across
the Tonslna River at this time of the
year. In case the bridge is taken away
by the floods serious trouble will be met
with in providing supplies for the several
stations along the line, as the traffic will
be obstructed for several months before
a new bridge can be constructed.

sional periods of temporary Insanity, at
tempted to stab Hurt with a large knife.

contending with a man apparently con
trolled by a homicidal craze, he drew his

considered that Hurt acted in self-defense
and was forced to use his weapon.
Italian Prunes Frostbitten,
CORVALLIS, Or.. April 28. (Speclal.)
There is a certainty here that injury of
a serious character has happened to Ital
ian prune orchards as a result of a frost
Friday night. Investigations up to the

Prune Company, btit there the statement
Is that serious damage has resulted. Man
ager Johnson says that present indica
tions are that there will not be more than
one-fourth of a crop. The only thing that
may better the condition is the fact that
there are many late blooms, and that it is
possible that these may in jj. measure re
lieve the situation.
In the case of cherries, apples, peaches
and other fruits. Including sliver and
petite prunes, the conditions are different,
and there is promise of an abundant crop

ment of which Is the object of the organi
zation. Among these questions are the
prevention of the cutting of rates and a
better understanding among millmen.
Prominent among the purposes of the
club is the securing of better facilities
for the transporting of the output of the
mills for the export trade. During the
past season many of the mills have been
almost incapacitated for work by the
utter lack of shipping service, while all

milling Interests will now present a united
front In their demands for better service.
It Is also stated that the standard of
flour manufactured In Western Oregon
will be raised and the mutual protection
of milling interests conserved.

OLD CHITTEM WORTH MORE.
Peelers Can Hold If Market Shall
KALAMA, Wash., April 2S. (Special.)
Chit tarn trees are beginning to peel and
several companies are getting icady to
go to work by the first of May. R. E.
Darnell, E. W. Galther, Beal Galther and
J. S. Galther form one company that
controls about 2000 acres of timber land.
John Hargrave, F. W. Arnold and Ed. P.
Goerlg are associated together and have
also a large tract of land under their
control. Charles Davles and Mike Doon
er will form another company. O. D.
Peck will peel the trees on the land be
longing to the Union Logging Company.
The peeling and curing of chittam bark
is a new enterprise on the Kalama River,
only very small amounts having been
peeled In former years. The comparative
high price paid last year, which is still
maintained at 12 cents per pound, will
result In more being produced and have
a tendency to lower the price. On the
other hand, peelers iave discovered the
fact that they have been selling their
bark for the bare cost of production
while fortunes have been made off their
labor, and a great deal of the bark will
be peeled this year by Arms and syndi
cates that are able to hold their product
until the price suits them.
Probably it Is not generally known that
chittam bark can not be used In medicine
until It has been peeled two years, hence
It will Increase in value by keeping at
least equal to the Interest on the money
Invested, even If the price of naw bark
remained the same.
The supply of chittam on the Kalama
River is not large and will not last more
than two or three years. It 19 hoped that
the revenue derived from the bark, in
dustry will In a measure at least compen
sate for the loss occasioned by the slump
In the lumber and log market.
