Summervllle the Center of a Very
Rich Country.
Summervllle, Or., Aug. IS. The
contemplated railroad announced by
way of Summerville, while regarded
by some as a more railroad rumor,
could not do better than to become
a reality. Situated in the northwest
portion of Grande Ronde valley, and
at one of the richest points in the val
ley, it is naturally one of the most
prosperous portions of the valley.
While the railroad Is reached four
miles from Summerville at Imbler,
yet the cross-road as. announced,
would do a profitable business,
through this section of the valley.
Lumber Industry.
Besides large shipments of wheat,
hay and stock, the lumber industry
here is immense. Within a few miles
of Summerville there are three mills
running on full time and are cutting
large shipments. The Ken'tucky Lum-
ber Company, managed by Robinson
Bros:, the Summerville Lumber Com
pany, operated by Wade & Wright,
and Wright. & Sons' plant, all do a
thriving business, each mill having a
daily capacity of 20.000 feet, and they
run from eight to 10 months in the
year. It is therefore easy to calculate
the total output of these three mills.
.11 of the lumber from these mills at
present is hauled to Imbler and Elgin,
at which points it is planed and then
shipped away to market. The greater
part of it Is sblpped to Salt Lake
City and even further east
There are several other large saw
mill plants in the north end of the
valley and all are running on full
Rush for Timber.
Most of the timber lands have been
taken up in the neighborhood of the
mills, and a major part of it is owned
by the mill companies. Still, there
are a number of individual owners in
the neighborhood and these have al
ready disposed of logs to the mills
at good prices. While the timber is
not of the largest kind, yet it Is large
enough for all practical purposes, and
a good grade of sound heart lumber
is turned out from it. It consists
mostly of yellow pine. The demand
for lumber on this point from the east
is continually increasing and It is
thought that with the raid that is be
ing made on the timber here and in
the Wallowa country by fliers that
the industry will grow to sunn an ex
tent throughout this section that pres.
ent railroad facilities will not bo suf
ficient. This is belleved to be the rea
son prompting the promoters of the
new road in building it.
Looking to Hogs.
While this section has. always been
noted for its output of cattle, horses,
wheat and' hay, it is. now branching
out in other industries. Summerville
has a splendid creamery and this is
running on full capacity this season.
Farmers are also looking to the rais
ing of hogs, and with the attention
that Is being given these animals, the
industry promises to grow to a largo
one at an early day.
