BAKER LEADS IH MINING
OREGON'S SILVER OUTPUT FOR
1 9 1 1 SHOWS INCREASE.
Gold Production in Same Period Has
Fallen Off Deep Mines Tield
WASHINGTON, Jan. 20. Oregon's
sliver output for the year 1911 ex
ceeded that of 1910. according; to a re
port Issued here today by Charles O.
Tala. of the United States Geological
Survey, while fold production was less
than that of tbe preceding; year. The
Washington figures show a deorease In
both gold and silver production but tha
totals do not Include all the ore i
ported and ths report says th final
estimates may yet show that the state
made a sjaln over the record silver
production of 1910.
Oregon's total gold production . for
the year was $599,236, against $681,400
for 1910; the silver output was $38,014
In 1911 and $23,800 In 1910. In refer
ence to Oregon the report says:
"The total number of active mines
shows little change, but some of the
larrar ones have become less produc
tive. The hydraulic mines are the
most productive placers and their num
ber is the greatest. The deep mines
of the state are yielding large quanti
ties of milling ore, but the grade of
ore worked has declined nearly one
half. Baker County la still the largest
producer of gold. It has about 50 or
60 producing mines, about half of
which are plaoers."
Washington produced. In 1911. $504,
537 In gold and $78,209 In silver; tbe
output in 1910 was $806,000 In gold and
$110,600 in silver.
"Most of the output was derived
from the siliceous ore of Ferry Coun
ty," says the report, "Th Republic
district remained the most productive
locality and much was done in the way
of mill building and development,'

awaiting the lumberman's ax, approx
imately 10,197.000,000 board feet of
merchantable timber, made up largely
of Douglas fir, yellow, white and sugar
pine. But the Inaccessibility of most
of this timber at present, and the large
private holdings In the same general
locality, are likely to prevent the cut
ting of this vast lumber supply for
some time to come. The foregoing
statements are taken from a report.
Just Issued by the Department of Agri
culture, on the Crater National Forest.
This National Forest, It Is reported,
Is capable of yielding annually 90,000,
000 board feet of lumber. Some of it
Is tributary to the Sacramento Valley
and to San Francisco, while other
parts, at present inaccessible, will, with
the completion of railroads now build-itio-
or nlanned. become available for

that species. On ths area now included

In that tiro, killed approximately 48.8SO.
600 feet beard measure, of timber. Many cf
the older Douglas firs ara affected
dry rot. which appears as white flakes
or short streaks throughout the grain. As
a rule this starts from the roots or a wound
at the base of the tree, and extends up
wards, so that while the first two or three
logs may bs affected, the remainder of the
tree is sound. This rot is especially com
mon in ths Klamath Lake Region. White
fir is especially susceptible to decay, and
many trees above 40 Inches In diameter
on the forest are so rotten aa io u.
less even for card wood. In tbe cedar a
funrus disease known aav pencil rot Is very
common. Sugar pins on the forest Is pe
culiarly free from Insects, though it is often
Injured by wlndshake.
The largest body of timber on the forest
at present accessible IS that growing on ths
Klamath Lake watershed on the east slope
of tbe Cascades. Hers are arms of the
laks In which logs can be rafted and taken
to the railway at Klamath Falls, a branch
Una of ths Southern Pacific, which furnishes
an outlet for lumber not needed for local
use. Logs for local consumption are rafted
to other ootnta on the lake.
Much of the timber in the east slops of
the Cascades and in the Sisklyous is at
present largely Inaccessible. The streams
are not drlvable without rather expensive
Improvement work, and to reach the only
railroad, the Southern Pacific, means a haul
of from ten to 80 miles. Large private
holdings, more accessible than the forest
Umber, will soon be logged by the lumber
companies In the valleys and supply prac
tically all the present local demand. The
new line of the Paclflo Eastern Railway
from Medford to Butte Falls, already In op
eration, will, however, make accessible a
considerable amount of the forest timber.
It Is planned further to extend the road up
Willow Creek over the Fish Lake Divide to
Pelican Bay. which will take It directly
through the forest and will make possible
the logging of a large area. Butte Falls,
.Ki.h lie hut a mile from tha forest
boundary. Is even now a lumber camp of
aome importance with a well-equipped saw
mill. Tom a sllrtoultuial standpoint It wsuld be
desirable to get rid of the mvtTjre timber
on the Crater Forest, an enormous amount

however, would preclude tbe possibility of
this, even were there not other factors to
be taken Into account. Of these factors,
the large amount of privately owned timber
In the region Is one of the most Important.
The lumbermen can not be expected to
hold his timber for any great length of
time. He must pay taxes on It. most get
some return from his Investment within s.
reasonable period, and the longer he holdn
the timber the gT ester ts the chance that
it will he destroyed by fire. Be has tim
ber enough to meet a large part of the
present demand, and will do so. Hut be
cause in most cases be must market his
timber now, he will not be able to supply
the future demand, which. In the Paclflo
Northwest at least bids fair to be much
greater than the present. If the develep
ment of the country Is to fro forward with
the same strides as In the past, there must
be a. permanent source of supply available

no good and much harm would result, sines
tbe market would be overstocked without
reason, the lumber trade demoralized, and
the amount of standing timber available in
the future, when the need for It will be
real, greatly lessened.
It should not bs Implied from this that
the timber on the Crater Forest will not be
disposed of, even at present, where there is
need for It. One targe sale for 100,000.000
feet la now In progress in the yellow pine
type on the east side of tbe forest, in the
Klamath Lake country. An informal ap
plication' tor another aale of approximately
100,000,000 feet on tha west aide of the
Cascades, contingent upon the extension of
the Medford-Butte Falls Railroad, has been
received, and the sale will prdbably be
made wben the road la opened.
In the management of the timber on the
forest, manifestly the first step will be to
remove as much as possible of the dead,
diseased, and overmature timber which
forms a considerable portion of the stand. .
All timber sales, for the present at least,
will have this snd in vlsw.
