The meeting of the lumbermen last

manner make a good deal of money
in the year.

you of the fun we had, for every one
was in a jovial mood and went for
a good time. Many old rural games
were enjoyed and then the party
sat down for lunch. We enjoyed
this very much and after it was
over we lesumed our good behav
ior? One game especially was
quite amusing. The party were
divided into two divisions. Each
one was to try to make the other
side laugh by their nueer actions
and were to make no noises what
ever. The principal smile-maker
of course was dear old Hugh. A

All were brought home by the
same unique conveyance and every
one had a very enjoyable evening.
One of the best features of the even

Frank I-'dmund Creflield, the
head of the Holy Roi'or mania, was
killed in Seattle ou Monday morn-
iug by George Mitchell, the brother
of two women who were wiongea
by him. Creflield, who styled him
self Joshua, committed many crimes
and led a vicious life yet was able
to exert a terrible influence over
number of women some of whom
went insane as a result of his teach
inc. his final oavment of his life
was a natural result, and to be x
iiected. Despite the taking of an
other's life, Mitchell will probably
and take tho work away from the
main saws. Other improvements
are planned and Manager Fischer
hopes before long to have tbe mill
cutting close to 75,000 feet of lum
ber per day instead of the 30,000 it
was supposed to cut when be took
hold of it. He is greatly pleased
at the steady running of the mill,
and the absence of shut downs.
The rup pr day now is about 5O.

car shortage for some time past ou
the O. it S. F.. on foi isrn ship
ments, probably oicg to the un
usual demand for ca's ior San
I Francisco relief work. While this
has made a hardship on the lum
bermen it is boped that it will be
j shortly rtlieved.
