company and splendid returns to

All in iiohcinia wish nuccess to the
Oregon Secuiities Company and
those that think, look ujon thia re
cent move as probably the right
tiling nnd tho only way to atone
for thu mismanagement. Bringing
a mine to pass is not u light under
taking, there is nothing easy to it.
The only way is to keep at it, meet
obstacles in the lace, and go ahead.
A well heh cted mine is not to blame
for the frailties of man.

ainotig-t tl.o larger lumber mauu
lactiu'eis throughout Oregon and
parts of Washington seems to bo
toward a curtailment ot Urn cut.
Tho geiuial prices of lumber are
such as to make it an incenuvu t"
the manufacturer to produce us
much possible and in case an
opening; is mado so an to allow tho
shipment of lumber in any quantity
to California points this might pro
duce a slump in the prices 11 propo
sition the larger lumbermen hopi
to overcome by reducing tho cut.
This action will probably be taken
up and actod upon at a meeting o
the lumbermen soon.
