Prices of Wood to Be
AMPLE CAUSE FOR IT
It Cannot Be Got to the Homes as
Rapidly as Needed.
. According to iomt of the prominent
tordwood dealers of the Columbia River
ah advance In the price of that commod
ity U among the probable thins in the
1 bear future. ' There are a great many,
iwood wharvee on the river, but for the
past- two month the ateamer have ex.
perlenced ' conalderable difficulty in ob
taining; wood enough to operate upon.
Thie scarcity u due not to the fact that
the Supply has been exhausted, but on
account ef the dry weather and the In
ability ot the operators of the wood
camps to get their product front the
woods to the head of the flumes. Wood
ha beert taken from the dumps Instead
ot the rlok by the steamers for several
weeks, and It has been almost decided
by some ot the boat, operator to Install
either coal or oil-burning machinery.
One of the most Tromlnent dealers In
wood onj the river, O. a. Mayger. ot the
Vlayger - Company, was la the city last
evening,' and said that consumers of wood
had better prepare for as advance In the
trice of the article. Wood is now sell
Jhg over the wharves for $2.60 a cord.
M price having prevailed for the past
mo yearv but within a week the price
. will go to tt75 a cord.
"Our Oompany,, said Mr. Mayger "has
ever MOO cords in the woods, - but we
. cannot , get it out nearly fast enough
to supply the demand at our place. Our
company has decided to raise the price
end we will be Joined by about three
other large companies on the river, and
I am satisfied the price will go op at

oat owners will. Stand for a raise In
Jhe price ot wood is not altogether cer
fain, but It Is not at ell unlikely that
mere will be considerable changing done
n the boats In regard to tha machinery
need tor producing steam.
In UN the price ef wood sold over the
ffharvee ruled at about J1.50, and there
yere. instances where some of the less
prominent dealers along the river sold
.heir product as low as (LiO. The price
Sa gradually increased, and U wood
over the wharves is one Of the things
likely to soon take place.
The fleet of boats engaged at towing
togs are the greatest consumers of wood.
!t requires about 40 hours for the return
'.rl9 with a raft of logs, and on one of
these trips about GO oorda ot wood is
joneumed, and it la claimed try the ope
rators that they are paying now all their
business will stand, and if a raise in
prioe is forced on them they will have
to resort to other means of supplying
steam. The amount of work in their line
has greatly increased, as a matter of
fact, but not to the extent of paying
such an advance in the price of fuel.
The owner of the steamer Vulcan is
seriously considering the advisability of
putting oil-burning apparatus in his boat,
in the event ot which there will be others
follow his example If the experiment
proves a suecesa. The use of coal exclu
sively, even generally, is prohibited by
the high price of the article by reason
ef proper transportation facilities not be
ing m existence between the coal beds
ef the state and the metropolis.
Any tendency to Increase the 'prioe of
wood, however, will have considerable
bearing on the projects so long advocated
to build roads to the coal fields.
Wood companies claim that they are
Justified In their act by reason of the
increase of cost of production and the
increase of distance they have to con
vey wood tq the river front It Is not
an uncommon thing to flume wood four
or five miles, even . then after having
hauled it a mile or more to the head of
the flume. The price of stumpage has1
increased, and greater expense rules all
along the line.

The aty 4k Suburban Railway Company
has In progress at this time improvements
and extensions of it track facilities that
contemplates the expenditure of many
thousands of dollars. The new 7-inch
rails en Third street, from Olisan south
to the southern boundary of the asphalt
pavement, at the plasa blocks. Is the most
eoLspicuoue Improvement to the eye of
the average cltlsen, but the East Bids
lines will have a share In these additions
tfaatfWltt be gratifying to the company's
patrons across me nver.
On the West Side, within a few days,
Third street cars will be switched to the
Second and First street tracks, for the
purpose of facilitating the laying of the.
new rails on Third street, and to avoid
transfer of passengers as has been done.
tor the past few days. This piece of
track will be so substantially laid that It
Is hoped by the company it wljl not have
to be disturbed again for, years, and the
street pavement wwl not be injured' by
I the jarring of the rails. , ,
I On the East Side the. most conspicuous
Improvement will be the double tracking
of the Waverly-Richmond and .Woodstock
branches from- Grand avfcnue and East
Harrison street to Eaat Twenty-sixth and
Clinton streets, a dUtapce of about two
miles. The line between East Twenty.
first and East Twenty-sixth streets wilt
be moved one block north. Tor the pur
pose of avoiding two at present snnoytng

ent line from East Twenty-sixth to Rich
mond will be moved far enough north to
permit k straight track from East
Twelfth ii nd Clinton to Jhe terminus at
Richmond. The present route Is full of
kinks and curve, and If straightened' out
much better time can be made, and Rich
mond people will be benefited nearly five
minutes In reaching the West Side. Some
persons along the present route have ob-,iect-edto
the proposed change, and If they
can be mollified the line will be rebuilt
on the new route, and seven-tenths of the
residents of that section will be better
served than they have been heretofore.
Ralls for these track extensions were
ordered In Antwerp more than a year ago,

he Issues warning of the approach of
gale likely to prove damaging to ship
ping along the Oregon and Washington
Coasts Vnd on the inland navigable wa
ters of these states.
it la known that these warnings have
been the means ot saving the lives of
numbers of . fishermen at the mouth of
the Columbia River and have prevented
casualties to sea-going, vessels by holding
them- In port just prior to the breaking of
a. storm, when,, without the information
contained In the warning they would
have gone, to sea and shortly afterward
encountered winds of hurricane strength.
Another featum in connection with the
work of the local weather office Is the
forecasting of flood crests in the Colum
bla River between The Dalles and Port'
land and In the Willamette River bejween
Albany and Portland. These floods with
out accurate information regarding the
stages to be expected are liable to cause
an Immense amount of damage, the char
acter of Which Is well known by the peo
pie of Portland. .
Next in Importance to the forecasting
of floods and storms, comes the gathering
of information regarding the condition of
the growing crops. Each week during
the growing season from 150 to 200 crop
reports are received from correspondents
located in the agricultural sections of
Oregon. These reports are carefully read
and from, them a summary Is prepared
and published In the form of a bulletin
which is sent free to alt applicants. This
bulletin has become very popular and the
number of persons requesting that it be
sent them is constantly Increasing.
The collecting of statistics regarding
tha climatology of the State of Oregon 1
also done at the Portland weather office.
There are about 90 voluntary observers
scattered throughout the state who keep
a dally record . of the . temperature and
rainfall at their respective stations, using
for this purpose government Instruments,
sll of which have been compared and ad-
Justed with standard' instruments-' kept
for this purpose at the. .central office in
Washington) D. C
The computations of the voluntary ob
servers are carefully checked and. after
any errors that may be found are ellmln
ated, thelr-reports are tabulated and pub
lished monthly. This publication contain

the well known libraries in the United
States and to others Interested, whether
from the standpoint of the business man,
the health seeker, or the' student.
Letters requesting information about
the climate of some particular locality In
Oregon, nre received almost dally from
persons In different parts of the United
States, who are contemplating moving to
this state, but before settling up home
affairs, want to know whether the climate
IS favorable for the Wnd, of business they
expect to follow.
The work of the Weather Bureau offl.
ctal Is exacting and arduous and the ben
oftts of the service are much greater than
many suppose. The work at Portland is
efficiently done under the directions of
Weather Official Edward A. Beals and
Chief Clerk Arthur Wollaber, who are to
be congratulated for the excellent service
