been saved for Oregon and 1200 lumber
men kept out of the bread line as a re
sult of the -guidance . of - United States
Judge Charles E. Wolverton.
Tuesday afternoon the company,
which entered the receiver's "handa Janu

off a $3,000,000 mortgage which fell due,
but pay off all creditors in full with ac
cumulated interest, as well as- the sal
aries ' of all employes.
Ten attorneys interested in various
forms of litigation growing, out of this
case were high in their praise of the
court and each declared .that but for
his business ability the company, could
never have been saved.
The judge's order allows the reorgan
ization committee, incorporated as the
Pacific States Lumber company,' to buy
the assets of the Coos Bay -Lumber com
pany and to float as $8,000,000 bond issue
to carry on the affairs of the new con
