TACOMA MAN NOT IM
PRESSED WITH NEW RESERVE.
Say the Southern Oregon Withdrawal
i Not Good Timber Land No Fear
of a Rush to the 8eene.
"The withdrawal of tho Oregon tim
ber lands from location and the plac
ing of the same In the forestry re
servu will work no particular hard
ships on timber locators," said a Ta
coma man who has just returned
from a trip to Ashland, Oregon.
"I went down there with a timber
locator and a party of 12 people from
Taconia and nine from South Prairie
and we looked the ground over care
fully. Out of tho 21 persons who
went there to select timber claims
only five concluded to file and 1 be
lieve that they are making a mistake.
The South Prairie men were all ex
pcrlencd In timber matters and not
one of them would have anything to
do with the Oregon timber.
Far From Railroad.
"To begin with, tho land is located
100 miles from a railroad and there Is
no reason why a railroad should ever
be built Into the country. Owing to
the high altitude of the land It will
never be possible to raise anything
there after tho timber is removed, for
a snowstorm Is Just as likely to occur
on the Fourth of July as on Christmas
day. The timber on tho land Is very
light and experienced men say that
not more than 500,000 feet of good
clear timber could be secured from
any one claim. It would, perhaps,
be possible to cut a couplo of million
feet of scrub lumber from a claim,
but on the whole I do not look upon
the proposition as a good Investment."
Business of Eastern Washington and
Oregon's Firemen's Association
Will Lay Over a Season,
Walla Walla, May 22. B. M. Mc
Donald, president of the Eastern Ore
gon and Washington Firemen's As
sociation, returned from Waltsburg
Monday after holding a conference
with Director J, W. Morgan as to the
plans to be carried out by the asso
ciation for the coming year. It was
decided not to hold an election this
coming June, and to let the business
of the association run along for an
other year. Walla Walla Is now out,
as no paid fire department can be a
member. La Grande and Heppner
being bo far away from this section
maljes it necessary that they drop
out. While nothing definite will be
done this year. It Is the desire of Mr.
McDonald to form a new league,
made up of towns In Eastern Wash
ington, leaving out Oregon altogether
Walla Walla now haB the cup, and as
she can not competo for It again,
President McDonald will order It scm
to him and he will hold It here until
tho next contest.
