Hulem, Ore. Oct 14. J. V. Thorp,
a Klondike and Nome pioneer, who bus
spent scverul years In both districts,
announce. Unit he has Invented a
motor .led, which Is cuiiuble of milk
ing 30 miles an hour over soft snow or
Ice. Thorp Invented his machine while
putting In the winter of 1903 and 1B04
In the vicinity of Nome, and says he
bus made repeated trials with sleds,
all of which turned out In tho most
The sled Is constructed with four
Iron wheels, about three feet In dlume
(it. Attached to the wheels are eight
paddles set at an angle, In order to
puck the snow thoroughly by the time
full pressure is brought to bear on
them tn propelling the sled along.
These puddles are fitted with several
large spikes, which prevent them from
slipping when the sled Is traveling over
Ice or hard snow, and uro in shape
much like the ordinary snowsuoe. The
struln on tho wheels I. relieved by a
spring attachment on which the axles
are fastened. The springs are securely
held In an Iron frame set In an upright
position on the top of the frame. The
sled Is propelled by a four or five
horse power gusollne engine, and is
capable of carrying from 1000 to
IGOd pounds of freight.
The steering apparatus of the con
trivance consists of a steel blade,
which acts as a rudder and also as a
brake when going down grade. Thorp
has putented hi. machine, and In
tends to manufacture a number of
them. He Intends to use them In
freighting supplies Into the Yukon
river districts during the close sea

Corvallls, Oct. 15. About $50,000
worth of chittim passed through Cor
vallls this season for the markets of
Thirty-three carloads were shipped
from Corvallls, and a few cars are yet
on hand. A dozen or 15 cars came
over from Lincoln county, making
the total shipment, from the vicinity
about 60 cars. Each car contained 10
tons or 20,000 pounds of dried bark.
The aggregate already shipped v from
Corvallls, Including the Alsea pool, Is
3 Scars, 330 tons, ($0,000 pounds,
worth $33,000,. at 6 cents per pound.
The aggregate value was a trifle more,
for It 's probable that the price aver
aged $5.10 per 100 to the peeler. The
amount I. very large In comparison
with former years. Had chittim re
mained at last year's sky-high prices,
the amount paid out In Benton county
alone for bark would have been 1150-
000, not counting the Increased amount
that would have been hurried Into the
market had prices remained In the

the question to a vote of the people
at the November election.
