INSTRUMENTS SET UP
The 2nd Platoon under command of
Leut U H. Brown, 3rd Co. has a
plotting room, observing stations and
telephones Installed so that now the
members of the command may be In
structed under conditions similar to
those In a well equipped tort or bat
tery, such as are used during the sum
mer two weeks training period while
away from borne. Time interval
bells are being Installed, and the dif
ferent stations are connected by phone
a target is tracked by the ob
serving stations and transmitted to
the plotltng room where the data Is
worked out tor the information of
the gun crew in manning the guns.
This platoon has two complete
plotting room details under instruc

Lieut Brown are to have two
thoroughly trained, units that will be
capable of taking over a battery at
the next summer encampment with
credit to the organization.
Several new enlistments have been
made since the trip to Fort Stevens,
a number of promotions made and a
few who were not attending drills,
have been discharged.

Guards more than paid expenses but
was not as profitable as some that
have been given In the past. The
Guard dance committee Is trying hard
to make a platoon fund with these

TOLEDO COAL MINES
TO BE WORKED
George Carpenter of Roseburg ar
rived inv Toledo this week and has
been busy epi nii.? up the old coal
mine on the FUolf, place near this
city. Mrt m M.tnr has been ettlns
out a couple of ton of coal to be tried
out at the electric plant. If the coal
proves satisfactory, the plant will
probably be fired with coal this win
ter instead of wood. The coal was
hauled to town Wednesday by Fred
lit will be remembered- that Mn.
Carpenter, who is an, experienced
coal miner, was here during the sum
mer of 1915 and took out about sev
enty ton of coal. The mine was then
closed and has remained idle until
the present time.
In a talk with Mr. Carpenter Wed
nesday, he stated that he had all the
adjacent coal lands now under leasb,
and was ready to commence opera
tions on a large scale. , Should the
coal prove satisfactory for steam pur
poses, at the electric plant, and he
can secure a contract to furnish them
coal, a new mine will be opened at
once near the railroad. Falling to
secure a contract to supply coal to
the electric company, the mine will
not be opened until March. At that
time however a large crew will be put
to work getting out coal for shipment
to Willamette Valley Jiolnts.
There are thousand and thousands
of tons of merchantable coal In this
country, and it begins to look now as
though It will soon be placed on the
market. The coal is of a semi-anthracite
