BUTTE, Mont. Juna 20. (Special.) In
one of the fastest and cleanest games of
baseball ever played on the -local grounds
Butte defeated Portland today by the
score of 2 to L Koach was pn the slab
for Butte, and pitched National League
ball, allowing but three hits, two of which
came In tho fourth inning and gave Port
land her only run. Butte played an error
less game and gave Roach perfect sup
port McKev.itt was the star of the game, and
his sensational catches in right field and
his perfect throw to tho plate, cutting off
a run, were the features o the gime.
Wlllmott also made a beautiful catch of
a hard line hit for which ho had to sprint,
and both of these plays were of the phe
Iundbom pitched star ball for the vis
itors, and Butte, with men on bases in
several innings, was unable successfully
to connect with his delivers' in fact, in
the last two games Butte has had
more trouble with pitchers than at any
time this season, and from the quality of
ball played by Portland here so far it is
hard to see why Grim's team occupies
such a low position in the standing of the
clubs. . . '
In the third Kane beat jut-a .bant nnd
LundbOm. throwing the ball wild to Da
vis, allowed Butte an unearned run; Kane
scored on Ward's Jong fly to Bradley, and
that ended the locals' run-gettlrig.
In tho fourth' Portland earned one. and
McKevltt prevented the score being tied
by his great throw to the plate. Donohue
hit, and Delsel sacrificed him to second.
Parrott's clean hit for three sacks scored
Donohue, and then .Bradley hit a high
fly to McKevltt Parrott was on third
nnd ready to start for the plate. The In
stant the ball was caught, he started.
McKevltt unloosened his great arm, and
the bill landed squarely In Swindells'
hands, Parrott being out by fully two
feet. Swindells never had to movo from
his tracks. The ball came as straight as
a shot from a rifle in the hands of an
experienced marksman, and tho grea
throw saved the day for Butte. Giving
all credit to Portland, it must be said
that had it not been for Lundbom's error
the game might have resulted differently,
but the boy threw a fino game, nnd came
near tielng Roach In the box.

The County Courthouse and the Federal
Employes' baseball hints met in a glorious
contest on tho Professional Field yester
day afternoon and amused 2000 people.
When the last runner crossed the home

dismally for the rest of the farce.
Charlie McDonell rolled the ball toward
the plate for the County players, and
Beard did likewise for the Federals. No

thought It was cricket and batted one-

Tho feature of the day's fun was the
fifth inning, when the Federals stacked up
10 runs with comparative ease. It was
simply a case of walking on for the base
runners. No one turned back.
The players were clad in a heterogeny of

SEASONING OF LUMBER.
Boreas of Forestry Gives Results of
OREGONIAN; NEWS BUREAU, Wash
lngton. June 19. It is curious, but true.
that the Bureau of Forestry, after Its
many years of research, experimenting
and Investigation, does not yet understand
thfc process of seasoning lumber. In Tate
years ralher elaborate experiments have
been conducted to determine Just -what
changes taker place when timber is -sea'
sdned, and to ascertain what methods of
seasoning give tiest results, but the study
13 yet in its early stages. "A recently Is
sued bulletin on the seasoning of timber
discourses at some length on facts that
have been ascertained to date, and con
tains many suggestions of value to lum
bermen and to' -mlllmen. But no positive
and final recommendations' are made; only
generalities are given.
For the" most part experiments to date
have been confined to railroad ties, tele
graph poles and fence posts. 'The bureau
announces- that seasoning unquestionably
prolongs the life of timber, and accord
ingly enhances Its value. It also permits
the use of Inferior grades of timber for
purposes for which only the "best xradas
have heretofore been employed, although
when Inferior species ara used $hey Ttxa
generally treated with we form of pre
servative. Low-grade timber, w.ell seasoned
and chemically treated, is found to be su
perior In lasting qualities to- a hifjh-grade
timber that Is neither seasoned nor treat
ed, or even to high-grade timber that Is
searoned. but treated with a poor preserv
ative. This, of course, applies more par
ticularly to railroad tle3 and poles of va
rious sorts that are- cxpostd to the
So far as Jthe experiments have been car
ried, the bureau finds that the old-fashioned
method of seasoning timber, by al
lowing it. when cut to stand exposed to
air for several months, is far superior to
kiln drying or other modern processes de
signed to save time. The Interesting point
Is made that logs that are allowed to
soak for a considerable time In water sea
son more readily than timber that is
piled after cutting. The rafting of logs
is therefore regarded by experienced lum
bermen as beneficial to the timber, for
while the logs remain under Water much
of the sap or juice i washed out, and
when tho timber is hauled out it dries rap
idly, and leaves a, better form of lumber
than If It had been dried without soaking.
For an Indefinite tlmq tests pf the West
ern hemlock and fir, of the Pacific Coast
are to be continued, ."phese trees and
others that have formerly been used but
little, are coming more and more into the
market, and from the little that has been
learned it 13 found that the lower grades
of Western lumber, when properly treat
ed, acceptably meet the demands of the
railroads and telegraph companies. These
poorer grade ties and poles do not last
quite as long as those made of hard wood,
but they are much cheaper. Moreover,
the use of inferior lumber for railroad
ties 13 becoming a necessity in the East
where tho supply of hard wood has been
so reduced that the price has advanced
beyond the reach of railroad companies.
Mlllmen and woodsmen are .now able iq
realize much higher prices on hard woods
at furniture factories' and elsewhere than
the railroads can afford to pay. Hence
the growing demand for lower grades of
timber, especially in the East
The lodgenole pine of the Western states
has attracted much attention, and Is
comlntr into ouite general use. The aver
age tree of this -species, averaging 14
inches in diameter at four feet above the
ground, yields three to five ties, and the
tree itself, growing straight with a ellgh.t
taper, promises to come into common use
for telegraph poles. When not treated,
the lodgepole pine Is short-lived, if ex
posed to the weather, but if duly seasoned
and treated will -last a number of years,
according to the climate.

and tho exports $1,324,493,293. For the 12
months ending with May the imports are
$1,016,712,218, and the exports $1,413,733,776.
As the largest Imports in any earlier fis
cal year were $903,320,94S, In 1902, it
quite apparent that the total Imports of
the present fiscal year will exceed, those
of any preceding year, and that they will
also exceed a billion dollars, since they
have not fallen below $73,000,000 In any
month of the past year, and are in the
11 months within $57,000,000 of the billion
dollar line. As the largest exports of
any preceding year, except Ufli, were
$1,394,453,012, in 1900, and those of the 11
months ending with May were $1,324,493,
293, and the smallest exports of any
month in the year were $S3,000.000, It is
apparent that when the month of June
Is added the export total for the year
will exceed that of 1S00, and will pass the
$1,400,000,000 line. The largest total com-
merce iby which is meant the imports
and exports combined) of any earlier
year was that of 1901, $2,310,937,156. As
the total Imports and exports for the 11
months ending with May were $2,263,000,-
4S7, and tho combined Imports and ex
ports of the llgbest month of the present
year wero $162,000,000. it i3 apparent that
tho commerce of the 12th month, added
to. the total already shown by the 11
months, will make a grand total exceed
ing that of 1S01, which showed the larg
est total of Imports and exports com
bined. It was only in the year 1872 that the
total commerce first touched the 51.000,-
000.000 line, and in 1900 it first touched the
$2,000,000,000 line. Running back through
tho century. It may be said that the
total Imports and exports of ISOO
amounted to $162,000,000; in 1S30, $144,000,
000; in 1S50, $315,000,000; in 1860, $6S7,0OO,00O;
in 1870, $328,000,000. In 1872 the total com
merce for the first time crossed the billion-dollar
line, being for that year $1,070,-
772.662. In 1SS0 it was $1,503,000,000, and In
ISOO, $L 647.000,000. In 1900 it first crossed
the two billion-dollar line, being In that
year $2,244,000,000; In 1901. $2,311,000,000; in
1902, $2,285,000,000; and In 1903 seems likely
to exceed $2,400,000,000. 1
Of the moro than $1,000,000,000 worth of
Imports for the full year, manufacturers'
materials will form nearly $500,000,000. In
the ten months whose figures are com
pleted by the treasury bureau of statis
tics, manufacturers' materials formed
47 per cent of the total Imports, and in
the latest month available, April, they
formed 49.77 per cent The percentage
which these materials for use of the
manufacturers form of the grand total Is
larger in mat parr, or tne nscai year
whose figures have been completed than
of any preceding year. Ia 1902, manu
facturers' materials formed 46.1 per cent
of the total imports; In 1900, 45.7 per cent:
In 1S3S, 42 per cent; in 1S95, 37.1 per cent;
in 1S90. 34.5 per cent; in 1SS5, 33.1 per cent;
