This is an excellent showing for the
Hist month of the year, especially In
viow of the fact that the lumber mar
ket 1r at -present -very dull. No ac
count is here taken of the large ship
ment of box snooks to California. On
the whole, the month has been a grat
' trying one so far as lumber exports are
concerned, and there 'ts every reason
to believe that the amount of business
will steadily increase. If present indi
cations are to be relied upon,; there
will shortly be several new mills along
the Columbia, and their product will
addr to the numerical strength of the
tuirib'er "carrying' fleet. fc ' ,. 4

fTries to Persuade Japanese Offic

of PreHent Troubles With
New York, Jan. 30. His excellency,
All Asghar Kahn Atabeck Asam, the
wealthiest of Persians and, until four
months ago, the grand Vlsier of his
country, sailed today for Europe. He
had Juat arrived here from the west
and is said to have been summoned by
cablegram from the shah to again
take office. His excellency's reason
for leaving Tehearan last September Is
somewhat wrapped in-mystery, but it
is apparent that he temporarily ,fell
from power and found It advisable to
leave the country without delay. Leav
ing Persia he traveled to Russia and
by Vail crossed Siberia'1 spent a short
time in Corea and, Japan and from
Tien Tsln took ship for San Francisco,
one of hjs fellow passengers on the
voyage being Governor Taft.
"1 had read and heard much of your
country, he said through his secre
tary, who acted as interpreter, "but it
far' surpassed my expectations. Alt
through the east your country has a
great name and you are looked on as
one of the most powerful people In the
world., I hope to be able to return
some day and make a longer visit."
Speaking of the Russian-Japanese
trouble he said: "War would be most
unfortunate for both nations. When
the Japanese ministers asked me for
my opinion 1 advised them strongly to
make yery possible effort to end the
trouble by diplomatic means."

Prices Are Reacting.
New York, Jan. 30. The activity of
the stock market has decreased and
prlcjs have reacted this week. The
leadership of organized speculators has
proved ineffectual to attract outside
demand for stocks. Conditions In the
Iron and steel trade have caused re
hewed solicitude and the reaction In
copper has aggravated it. Net earn
ings of railroads for December publish
ed during the weik were poor. The
check to the Inflow of the currency
to New York has resulted in firmer
rates for time loans and has given
warning of the necessity to curtail the
rate of loan expansion recently in force.
The pressure to Sell on the reaction
has been light and the market has not
developed acute weakness.

MILL EMPLOYS BOYS IN
, PLACE OF STRIKERS
Olympla, Wash., Jan. 30. Sixty
shingle mill employes who are on strike
at Belllngham have reported to State
Labor Commissioner Blackman that
the strike, If unsuccessful, presages a
general cut in the mill employes' wages
throughout the state. . The labor com
missioner, who made an unsuccessful
attempt this week to settle the strike,
found the mill employing 12 boys of
school age in place of the strikers, and
reported the case to the school author
ities. The mill involved is the largest
exclusive shingle mill in the world.
The strikers claim the reduction In
wages is to test the strength of the
Shingle Weavers' union, decided upon
by the Manufacturers' Association.
