Florence, June 7. (Times Spe
cial.) Tho Hurd Lumber and Navi
gation company has a largo force of
men at work enlarging tho capacity
of its mill at this place. When fin
ished tho mill will have double its
present capacity. This improvement
has been made necessary owing to
the increased demand for lumber in
the past year.
The companies operating mills at
Florence have experienced a great
deal of trouble the past season in
shipping their lumber owing to the
shoal condition of tho bar at the
mouth of tho Siuslaw river. At
present there are several thousand
feet of lumber on the docks awaiting
shipment on this account. Several
vessels are bar bound there now.
The timber values around Florence
have doubled in the past year and at
the present prices eastern firms are
buying quite extensively in this district.
