San Francisco, July 28. The bulle

ber of associates, will control the lum
ber market of the world. They are se
curing large tracts of forest land In
Northern California and Oregon,
through their agonta, who have boon

on the coast. Among the associates of

With the many minor holdings which
Harrlman and his associates may count
on, it is said that the plan is to merge
the more valuable lands controlled by
the IltU roads and the Southern Pacific

principal holdings are represented in
the grant of ten miles on each side of its
road, lying between the southern boun
dary line of Oregon and a point south
of Portland, and consists o about 1,'
000,000 acres of fir and sugar pine. In
his plan to place these lands in a pool
Harrlman does so conditionally, with
provisions for the protection of the com

of the company are pltdged in security
for its indebtedness.
J' With the lands of the Hill and the

HAPPENINGS HERE IN OREGON
MIW LAND LAW Dtil'UCTIVU.
State Uoard Believes Old Act Still In
Application has been tnado to the
state land boanl for tho purchase ot
a tract ot school land located within
tho boundaries ot ouo ot the proposed
forest reserves In Kastcrn Oregon
This land has been withdrawn from
sale by the state land boanl for the
reason that It tho reserve should be
created the land would probably be
more valuable for "base" than for
salo as school land. Tho applicant In
this case contends, however, that the
board has no right to refuse to sell
any school land when the legal price
J2.50 per acre, has been tendered.
The state land board. In considering
tho question, has discovered that
there Is n defect In tin? title of the
act ot the last legislature which
makes It doubtful whether the legist
lure raised the price ot school land
to $2.60 per acre and required the
boanl to sell nt that Price. The title
of tho act refer only to Indemnity
land, while tho act Itself applies to
both, Indemnity and school land
The board Is Inclined to tho opln
Ion that so much ot the act ns
applies to school land Is Inop
erative, and that the old law Is
still In force on that subject. The old
law authorised the board to sell
school land at any price not less than
$1.25 per acre. Under that law the
board could withdraw the land from
sale, or could tlx the prlco nt $2.30,
which was Intended by tho leglsla

floors and will be of a very pleasing
architectural design, and will be used

Crops In Lane County.
while there has been much com
plaint about unfavorable weather and
many farmers have expressed the b
lief that crops of all kinds would be
light, there Is now a change to the 31
trulstlc view of the situation In Lone
county. Conditions are turning out
much better than anybody believed n
tew weeks ago. Probably the most
elated ot all the producers are those
who have orchards. Conditions for
yenrs past have been more or less
discouraging to the horticulturist and
only the strong hearted have been
able to bear up against the repeated
failures of prune crops especially.
Oat Harvest Commences.
Binding began In many of the cat
fields of Benton county this week. In
some fields there hati been a day or
two of preliminary cutting during the
past week. In the county there
Is an unusually large acreage of oats,
and the crop Is apparently the best lu
many years. A prolific growth is also
apparent In the wheat and vetch
fields, and If the yield turns out to he
ad good as present conditions prom.
Ise, the crop of the county will be
tbe best In many years.
Smoky Pall Reappears.
The pall ot smoke which annually
visits the Southern Oregon moun
tains, screening the pine-covered
range from view and shadowing the
"entire Southern Oregon country, Is
making its appearance, A few minor
fires have already been observed In
tbe surrounding mountains, though
none of them have occurred In the
heavily timbered districts. A strict
er vigilance will be Kept this year
than usual, and It Is not likely that
the dreadful fires of last summer will

The survey has been completed for
a new location of the wagon, road be

road will be built on a 6 per cent
grade, making an easy ascent up this
side of the mountain. Money Is being
subscribed to make the Improvement,
and the work will be finished at an
early date. The Improvement will be
an Important one, as this road Is the
only outlet by which a number of
sawmills In the Lower Nehalem get
their products to the railroad.
