Prediction at Spokane Conference
Yesterday Was Surprise to Lum

Washington Had Troubles of His Own
In Hit Official Family.
To represent the factions fairly,
Washington chose for his cabinet four
men who could not bave differed more
in character had he summoned tbem
from the ends of the earth.
For secretary of state he chose Jef
ferson, tbe ardent theorist who had
done his country the service of formu
lating tbe Declaration of Independence
and was perhaps better known abroad
than any American save the aged
Franklin. For secretary of the treas
ury he called to him the phenomenal
Hamilton, with the frame of a lad and
tbe Intellect of a giant, to whom It
was given to perform miracles with an
empty exchequer. The secretary of
war was General Knox, large and
showy, but, despite his pompous speech
and grandly flourishing cane, a man of
experience not only in battle, but In
administering this same office under
the Continental congress. T'.ie attor
ney general was Edmund Rnndolph.
who proved of wcoker moral fiber than
the others.
Jefferson was the strong opposing
personality of the administration. He
bad little patience with General Knox,
whom he called "a man of parade,"
and be and Hamilton quarreled almost
dally upon every conceivable topic, for
Hamilton, Federalist to the core by
instinct and conviction, became as in
evitably spokesmnn for the party hi
Even Washington could not preserve
harmony in such a cabinet, and before
tbe end of bis first term both Hamilton
and Jefferson resigned. Afterward the
president had still greater difficulty
with his council. His critics taunted
him with being able to get only second
rate men to fill their places, and Vice
President Adams asserted tbnt it was
this, not high devotion to principle.
that caused him to refuse a third term.
But Adams was neither generous nor
always Just in his estimate of others.

Chiefs of the lumber industry of
the east and middle west told repre.
sentative lumbermen of the northwest
at a1 conference in Spokane yesterday
that within ten years the Pacific man
ufacturers would be called upon to
produce one-half of the lumber out
put of the United States against a
present production of one-sixth of
the nation's cut.
This was the most startling infor
mation developed from the day's con
ference on questions of present and
future production and consumption.
Late in the afternoon, as the confer-
once became" an informal discussion
of inside facts in the industry, the
visitors brought the western manu
facturers face to face with the fact
that the great southern and middle
western timber areas will not con
tinue to meet the demands at the
present proportion; that the north
west and west coast mills will see a
constant increase in volume of busi
ness; that in meeting 50 per cent of
tbe consumption ten years hence, the
western mills will be compelled to
maintain an output far above 50 per
cent of the present consumption.
Eastern manufacturers were after
wards entertained at a banquet at
which they stated their purpose in
coming on this trip, which is to take
them to Seattle and other coast points,
is the stimulation of the lumbermen
to a realization of the possibilities
of their industry and to expand the
demand for their product.
Their efforts are a feature of the
national campaign to put lumber be
fore all communities and cities as the
ideal building materiul. They will
conclude their conferences in Spokane

heart of tbe gtrl. wbo was to have
