WEALTH IN TIMBER
A Few Pacts and Figures
about Future Industry.
WILL MEAN A1UCI1 TO BOND
Vant Sums of Money Will lie Paid lit
Wages when Timber Is Being
Manufactured Into Lumber.
Much is written and said about
the timber resources adjacent to
Iknd, but undoubtedly very few
people have any clear Idea of how
great an Industry will some day be
developed at Bend from that source.
Everyone knows that the revenue
derived from the manufacture of
lumber hero will mount up into the
millions of dollars and that it will
take years to exhaust the timber
supply" in this region, but no one
aside from a few timbermen, cruis
ers and those who have given the
subject study, have any clear con
ception of Just how much wealth
will be derived from or just how
long it will take to complete the
manufacture of the local timber
supply. Hence The Bulletin has
prepared an article giving a few
facts and figures, having secured
its information from those who have
cruised this eutire section and
whose life work has been in the
limber and lumber business. Con
scquently the statements made are
There arc adjacent to Bend 3500,
000 acres of timber land, which
will average 30,000 feet to the acre.
That means 70 billion feet of tim
ber tributary to this place. Bend
has a site for a mi 1 pond with a
capacity sufficient to accommodate
five mills each sawing 1,000,000 feet
a day. A little figuring on t ha. basis
gives some very interesting results.
If these five mills were in operation
and each sawing 1,000,000 feet a
day for 300 days of each year, it
would require in round figures 50
years to saw up the entiresupply. As
a matter ol fact the future milts will
not saw that amount of timber and
a much longer time will be required
to exhaust the supply.
A mll with a capacity of i.ooo,
000 feet a day will require a force
of about 3,500 men in its logging
and milling operations. The five
mills would require 17,500 men.
At an average wage of $3.00 per
day that would mean a daily pay
roll of 52,500, or a monthly, pay
roll of 36 working days of $1,315,-
ooo, or a yearly pay roll of $15,-
It has been said that figures arc
cold things, but when the full
meaning of the figures just quoted
aru realized it will be seen that
uicy can uc raauc 10 curry very in-.
teresting information. With as
much money turned into a commun
ity or section each month as
the above statements show to be
possible, prosperity in a great de
gree Is bound to follow. The fig
ures mentioned have to do only
with the manufacture of lumber,
Think of the grocery and drygoods
establishments, the clothing houses,
the drug stores, banks, aud a dozen
and one other business enterprises
that will follow in the wake of the
one .great aud . important Industry.
When the railroad comes these var
ious industries will all spring into
life aud their rapid development
will then follow. When that good
time comes Bend aud the Bend
country vi to one of the busiest
and most prosperous sections in the
entire country. And its coming Is
not far distant.
Says Oregon Hastern Will lie Unlit.
' The head engineers of, the Ore
gon Eastern railway surveying
crews, who remained here several
days after the surveying crews
were dischurged finishing up the
work, started 'for Salt Lake Tues
day. Mr. Stradlcy, head of the en
tire force, stated to an Hxamiucr
representative that while he knew
little of the company's intentions
he believed this road would be
built. He said the company could
not afford not to build it. This
country had too much of a future
to remain much longer without a
railroad, and that this toad was the
most practicable one, and there
was no doubt nbout its being built.
He also stated that this road was
necessary for the handling of the
company's enormous traffic; that
for two years past all their western
roads had been blocked with busi
ness, and this road was the surest
relief. The panic, he stated, has
served a good purpose for the com
pany, as it permitted them to clean
up the gorge of business..
Mr. Stradley's confidence in the
future of this country is such that
be has invested in two tracts of
land near Lakcview this fall, and
says that be is satisfied with his in
vestment and will likely see more
of Lake county.
While he, may not know what
the company Intends to do, or does
not feel justified in talking for the
public about its business affairs, bis
position is a source of knowledge
which makes his judgment good,
else he would not have invested his
money here. Lakcview Examiner.
Building; Large Cattle Shed.
Work is going ahead on the big
cattle shed 011 the Davenport-Stanley
ranch that is to house those
blooded animals bought last year
near Hood River. These animals,
about 40 in number, were brought
to the local ranch about the time of
the Prineville fair. Taey are pure
bred short-horns aud the price paid
for them ranged from $100 to $400
per head. The cattle were bought
from the Judge Byrkett herd on
his stock ranch across the Colum
bia from Hood River. The num
ber contained three fancy animals
that have been exhibited at vari
ous stock shows.

WHEN THE COIN
WlWN the stringency is stringent, and the panic's on the pan,
Then the financiers explain it in the only way they can,
1'or the stocks are 011 a tumble and the market is a mark,
Aud the proud aud haughty magnate Isn't singing like a lark;
lie I weeping for the water that is squeezed out of the stock
When the coin I in the teapot and the bills arc iu the sock.
When the coin Is In the teapot, then somebody has a scire, '
And the plutocrat is tothcrcd by the lifting of his hair,
1'or he fear n gloomy future when today is far from bright,
Aud he hear the ticker ticking in the watches of the night;
Aud the Iambi are not so ready to be gathered In a flock
When the coin is in the teapot and the bills-nre in the soc'k,
O, it Isn't just the poor folk that should take the brunt of blame;
There' a lot of other people who have cold feet in the game,
Aud each doubts tlte other fellow, and each even doubt himself,
So he finds the old cracked teapot that is hidden ou the shelf,
Aud he slips into the wardrobe, and comes out aud turns the lock,
Aud his coin is in the teapot and bill are In the sock.
So it's alt of us together that have caused unpleasant times -
It'a the man tlutt hides the millions and the man tha$ hides the dime,
Whether one is.in a mansion and the other In a hut,
Whether one walks with a shuttle or the other with a strut
They arc sure to switch the current and give confidence a shock,
When the coin is In the teapot and the bills are in the sock.
