CLOSE TO THE FRONT.
At the meeting of the Oregon
Development State League recently
held in Portland many good thiugs
were said about the resources of
some of the counties. There were
so many to be heard from and so
much business to be transacted that
by the time I.ane county's repre
sentative was called many ol the
delegates having become weary
were leaving the room and dele
gate Williams ol Eug:iie who had
been chosen to present the resources
of the county, did not have the op
portunity to do either himself or
the county justice.
Lane county has no feeling of
jealously towards any other portion
of the state and is proud to be
numbered among the great coun
ties and to be a part of the state
Yet it does believe it is second to
but few if any in its natural re
sources both developed and unde
veloped, and in a modest way, the
Nugget will refer to some of them:
Classification of lands in Lane
Total area 4,380
Merchantable timber erea 2,956
Cut area 33
Burned area 801
Open country 531
Amount and classification of tim
ber in Lane county:
Million feet B. M.
Red fir 27,827
Red Cedar 471
Yellow pine 236
Noble fir 636
Lovely fir 1,100
Average stand ol timber per acre
of timbered laud, 17,900 feet B. M.
Outside of the timbered lauds
mentioned it will be noticed there
are 531 square miles ol open lands
suitable for agriculture and horti
culture besides a large area suitable
for stock raising.
It has outside of these resources
two prosperous mining districts be
sides a large amount of mineral
land not yet prospected to any ex
tent. The Blue River mining district
is receiving the attention of the
mining men and several mills are
already working at a profit the ores
ot that section.
Bohemia mining district is also
presenting a great field lor those
who desire to mine, it having pas
sed the developemeut stage and has
now many tbousandsof tons of ore
on the dumps and exposed in the
workings awaiting the mills for
treatment. Three mills are
under construction and within a
short time will be at work upon
Besides all of its varied resources
the climate of Lane county is un
excelled in the state or the Pacific
Coast for that matter and with its
schools, churches and social advan
tages, Lane feels disposed to
claim a position very close to the
front in the procession of counties
of the state of Oregon. I

Very few, whether luriuets or
otherwise, realize the value of the
hen to the United Slates. They
talk of big crops of wheat and

know that the product of the hen
would buy not only the wheat crop
of the country, but the cott m crop

know that the yearly proceeds of
chickens and eggs would buy nil
the gold, silver and other minerals
that ntc produced in this country
during the year, and would pay all

The farmer invests a lot of money
in grain raising and waits a cnr

his ground, for the crop to mature

to him in this state, unlike the East
where he can empty his sacks into

Warden Baker refers them to sec

deep mines, where every blow of
the pick brings forth copper or iron

laboring locomotives, and white

towns and cities, alive with human
