no shipments are now made. The
nrosnects for enlargement are, now
ever, good. The South Slough basin
lies Immediately to the west of the
two basins mentioned. The Copullle
basin is 8 miles long nnd one wide.
Coal has been prospected there, but
no mines opened.
In 1880 the Pacific Coast produced
about 425,000 tbns, in 1890 over 1.
435,000 tons and in 1900 over 2,704.000
Oregon Once Was First.
Of the tljree Pacific coast states,
Washington easily ranks first as a
coal producer, with California second,
although In 189G-7 Oregon's produc
tlon exceeded that of California. In
the San Francisco market the coals
of the world compete. Foreigncoal
enters that port chiefly as ballast in
tramp steamers seeking grain char
ters so that the condition of the
wheat export trade has a direct bear
ing up on the coal imports. The coal
supply of California comes from Eng
land, Wales, Scotland, Australia and
Japan in addition to British Colum
bia. The imports of coal at the Cal
ifornia ports have for years amount
ed to about three-forths of the aggre
gate coal tonnage imported into the
United States. Eastern coal reaches
the Pacific coast only in small quan
tities, and the Rocky mountain coal
has not been a source of supplv for
20 years. The contribution from the
three coast states to the San Fran
cisco market is growing rapidly. In
lsuu it was less than 20.000 tons, in
1900 it was 830,000 tons out of a to
tal of 1,800,000 tons.
The coal fields of Washington are
confined to the .western and central
parts of the state. Four large fields
may be mentioned, the northern and
southern Puget Sound fields, the Ros
lyn basin, and the field In Lewis
and Cowlitz counties, in the northern
part of the state. The northern Pu
get Sound field includes the coal
fields of Skagit and Whatcom coun
ties, in the northern part of the' state.
The southern Puget Sound field lies
in King and Pierce counties, directly
west ot the cities of Seattle and Ta
coma. In production this is the most
important field in the state, includ
ing tne Wilkeson-Carbonado district
In Pierce county, and the Green Riv
er, Renton-Cedar River, and the New
castle Issaquah .districts of King
mi, a. j.
aiiu mm discovery ot coal was
made in 1848, lignite of noor oualltv
being found in Cowlitz valley at that
time, tour years later coal was dls
covered on Bellingham bay In What
com county, and shipments began
from this in 18G0 and continued until
1878 when spontaneous combustion
caused fire that destroyed the mine,
two or more northern mines have
been active shippers since 1891. in
King county coal was reported in
1859 amd mining began near the
present Issaquah mines in 1SG2. The
Newcastle mine was the real pioneer
mine in .this field. It began to ship
coai to aeattle In 1SC7. By 1877 coal
tromi King county had become an 1m
portant factor in the San Francisco
market, the Ronton and Talbot mines
having become shippers also. Coal
was discovered east of the Cascades
and the Roslyn mine opened early in
the eighties; and the same coal was
reached by the Cleallum shaft in
1894. The mines at Roslyn and Cle
allum constitute the largest colliery

The water m the Umatilla is a little
too swift yet for fish to bite, although
a few bull trout are being caught. It

arFonowIng Is what the Walla Walla
Statesman said In Wednesday's Issue
in regard to the sportsmen from over
there coming to the waters of Uma
tilla county to ply their favorite
Walla Walla Fishermen's Under
standing. "There is liable to be trouble for
Walla Walla fishermen In running
afoul of Umatilla county deputy game
wardens and their laws. There is a
law in Oregon that trout, or in fact,
any kind of fish cannot be taken out
of the state. It has been the habit
of local fishermen to visit this famous
trout stream on a Sunday for a day's
fishing, returning in the evening with
thnlr catch. This, it is said, will be
stopped by order of the game warden
of Umatilla county, who has jurisdic
tion over this stream. It is said or
ders have been given to deputy war
dens that any person caught taking
fish out of the state are to be ar
rested. In view of the fact that near
ly every resident along the river
from the forks up, has been deputized
a game warden, if the order goes
forth to stop the taking of fish out
of the state, it is liable to be en
forced." Their Error.
The Statesman has undoubtedly
forgotten that the above law was un
constitutional and had been declared
so in the higher courts. In speaking
of this. J. E. Krause, vice-president
of the Oregon Fish and Game Associ
ation, said: "Yes, there is a law that
said that no fisherman can go into an
other state and mnke a catch and
carry his fish over the lino, but this
law cannot be enforced. It is uncon
stitutional and no one need fear being
arrested for such a thing."

The value of Walla Walla valley
wheat for milling purposes Is being
demonstrated by the fact that millers
from outside states are constantly
looking for the cereal from this val
ley. The latest bidder for valley
wheat is J. H. Koontz, the big miller
of Echo, Ore., who arrived in this city
yesterday for the purpose of looking
up wheat that he may ship to his
plant at Echo. Wheat at the present
time, while quite plentiful, is hard to
get hold or In view of the fact that
the present prices are not satisfact
ory to farmers. It is estimated fully
25 per cent of Walla Walla county's
last year's crop is in the hands of

remain there unless the prices begin
