Several lower Columbia river loggers
are In the city for the Fourth, having
closed down to give their men a few
days' vacation. A few of the larger
camps that were represented at the
loggers' meeting held In Portland last
Wednesday will follow out the agree,
ment to close their plants until July IS.
E. C Pelton, who was chairman of the
loggers' convention, and R. S. Farrell,
secretary, say that nothing has yet
been accomplished in the way of bring
ing In the Weyerhaeuser Timber Com
pany, the Benson Logging & Lumber
ing Company and Collins & Co., who
were not represented at the meeting.
Weyerhaeuser Will Not Close.
A local lumberman states that it Is
hardly probable that the Weyerhaeuser
will consent to close for an extended
time, as they are getting rid of their
large body of burned timber as rapidly
as possible to save it from total loss.
He stated that the Weyerhaeuser have
contracted to furnish 60,000,000 feet of
logs to the Inman-Poulsen Co., and
are selling to other mills wnenever op'
portunlty offers; It is known that the
company has large storage, facilities In
Lake Vancouver and that It has large
stocks of various dimensions of logs
F. M. Duggan, a prominent Puget
sound logger, states that the Weyer
haeusera, who operate a large sawmill
plant at Tacoma, do not use their own
timber when they can make purchases
from loggers at a not higher rate than
$7 a thousand. In fact, their Portland
representative has stated that the com
pany would not be now operating In
Clarke county, Washington, were It
possible to save the burned timber In
any other way.
Busy on the Cowlitz.
S. J. Beck, postmaster at Lexington,
Wash., and a. prominent Cowlitz log
ger, stated that he had closed down
his camp for a few days, and that his
output would be less than It had been.
In addition to the logs that he Is fur
nishing the Portland market, he also
Is getting out piling for the Oregon
Raft Company at Stella, Wash. Mr.
Beck states that there is no difficulty
In disposing of logs to the Portland
mills, when the desired lengths can be
furnished. The large shingle mill at
Kelso, Wash., that was burned down a
number of weeks ago is being rebuilt
and will soon be ready for operation.
The company already has from 5000
to 6000 cords of bolts in the storage
pond and will start up with an average
cut of 250,000 shingles per day. The
capacity of the mill will be 400,000.
C. A. Sonney of Woodland, Wash.,
who is operating a logging camp seven
teen miles up the north fork of Lewis
river, stated that he Is putting In 60,-
000 feet of logs dally, and is closing
down for a few days only. He stated
that the new boom placed at the mouth
of Lewis river by the Lewis River
Boom Company, withstood yie high
waters of the past winter, and enables
the loggers to save many logs in place
of those heretofore swept away by the
Shingle Mills Busy.
Norman Merrill, a pioneer sawmill
man of Clatskanie, stated that about
200,000 shingles are being brought over
from the Nehalem shingle mills dally
for shipment to Portland and other
Two sawmills are belrg removed from
the vicinity of Rainier. J. A. Flneout
Is removing his mill across to the
Washington side, near Kalama. The
mill has a capacity of about 20,000 feet
daily. Wyatt & Co. have purchased a
good timber tract above Goble, and will
remove the mill to a new location at
Hunters point. '
There is already some danger of for
est fires, and some narrow escapes from
serious losses are already reported. One
of Teon's camps, back of Rainier, was
almost destroyed by fire last Thurs
day. Sparks from a logging locomotive
started the blaze, and five hunkhouses
were burned before the men could save
their bedding and clothes. A fire start
ed In the dry material near the Key
stone Lumber Company's mill, near
Clatskanie, but was stopped before
serious damage resulted.
situation at present Is the Increase In
the interest and dividend disburse
ments for July. As compiled for the
banking Institutions of the east they
disclose an aggregate of about $147
500,000 as against $142,800,000 for July
of ltistiyenr and tl3s.S00.000 for July,
1901 While this Increase of M.TOO.OOO
Is not large only a trifle over 3 per
cent from the figures of last year the
source of It Is significant.
It cornea In some measure from In
creased dividends for the quarter or
hHlf-year declared by a considerable
number among the smaller and com
pnratlvely Inconspicuous Industrial
corporations, but companies that are
nevertheless unusually prosperous Just
now. It Is due chiefly, however, to the
fact that dividend -paying stocks or
growing concerns have been greatly
Increased to meet the needs of exten
sion and Improvement. Th1 Is par.
tlcularly true of telegraph, telephone,
traction and similar public-service
corporations. Reduced or passed divi
dends have not been uncommon for the
past twelvemonth among the more
prominent "Industrials." but diMreased
disbursements In that quarter have
been more than offset by Increases
among those companies obove referred j
to. In fact, about $2,500,000 will rep
resent the net Increase In "Industrials"
disbursements this July over those of
a year ago. And there will be more
than $1,000,000 Increase In the Interest
disbursements on railroad bondsdue
chiefly to new Issues.
Despite the generally unsatisfactory
condition of the stock market during
the past year, It Is plain that prosper
ity has been very generally continuous
among eastern corporations. Many of
the securities most prominently In the
public eye may go begging In the mar
ket, but meanwhile the great mass of
the Industrial and public-service cor
porations, the railroads and banks,
keeps on earning and distributing
profits and meeting Its Interest obliga
tions, and the United States govern
ment never defaults. Most assuredly,
there is nothing In the conditions un
derlying our general business struc
ture to cause any apprehension Just

T. W. Smith, for the past three years
manager of Northwestern Warehouse
Company, In that city, and for more
than 20 years engaged In the grain
business In San Francisco and Port
land, has resigned his position and will
engage in business for himself. As
soclated with him in the new venture
are O. Paterson and A. F. Pratt, who
have also had long experience In the
grain business. Mr. Smith's position
with the Northwest Warehouse Com
pany will be filled by C. E. Curry, well
and favorably known to the grain trade
of this port, and at present general
manager for the Northwest Warehouse
Company at San Francisco. The es
tablishment of the new firm of Pater

iness at this port is another tribute
to Portland's advantages for conduct
ing the grain business. This city now
has more grain dealers and flour mer
chants than are located in all of the
