PINE PULP TEST
OPENS UP BIG
Car loads of Ixdgrpolc Pine Kent' to

Pulp Manufacture of Paper
Will lie the .Next Tiling.
The first paper pulp ever made
Iroin Central Oregon timber reached
llend Inst week, coming to The Iluf
letln from 8. O. Johnson of Ban Krnn
oluco, head of tho Deschutes I.um
her Company. Xlr. Johnson says tho
pulp In excellent and that there is
every reason to believe that good pa
per will be secured from It.
It will bo remembered that early
In January John K. Itynn engineered
Iho shipment of two carloads of
lodgepolo plno to the pulu mill at
Camas, Wash.. Tho expenses of tho
enterprise were divided between tho
Deschutes company und other local
timber owners. This "blackjack"
plno haa now been transformed Into
pulp, and aoan paper will bo manu
factured from that pulp.
Aa thero arc thousands of acres
perhaps a million of thla plno In tho
upper Deschutea valley, and as It
has been regarded as practically use
less up to now, tho Importance of tho
test Just made Is apparent, as I the
blguesa of the osslblIltles It opens
up. While of course It will be eom)
tlmo before tho auccessful experi
ments bear fruit, men familiar with
the pulp manufacturing Industry say
that there Is good reason to believe
that It would bo easy to Interest alaro Interested In Uend, say that they
luinerii iu jiui hi a piaui. Jl is
known that seteral Important plants
have come nearly to the end of their
supply of atallable timber and must
move or close.
Through tho courtesy of Mr. John
son Tho llulletln will be furnished
with a supply of the paper made
from the pulp the first paper ever
manufactured from Central Oregon
treea and thla will be used for the
publication of a Uttlo souvenir leaf
let probably descriptive of the local
timber belt and Ita possibilities.

D. E. Hunter of The Dcnd Com

Mr. Hunter had a surprise this
morning when the "shots" began go

"For a few minutes I did not know
where I was," ho aald, "and the only
thing 1 could think of waa that I'd

that the timber men back East, who

HOUSE FAVORS THE
Chances Are IIHght That Man For
State to Aid Columbia Southern
Project Will Itecome Law
Gerklng Labor Hard.
(Special to Tho Dcnd Bulletin.)
SALEM, Feb. 18. Last week the
Forbes bill, appropriating $500,000
for completion of the Columbia
Southern project adjacent to Lald-
law, passed the House, after some of
the most brilliant speech-making of
the aeaslon. It haa gone to the Sen
ate and while there la a strong op
position to It there. It seems more
than probable that despite it the bill
will pass, aa I haa secured a far
reaching support and Interest, and !
being worked for by powerful Inter
est nnd a strong lobby.
After the passage or tho Columbia
Southern bill by the House, when
Senators were discussing Jt. J. N. D.
Gerklng or Laldlaw, who is one of
Ita strongest lobbyists, bad tho fol
lowing to aay:
"This is not an appropriation of
money in the usual aenso of tho
word, but rather In tho nature of a
loan, as every dollar will bo returned
to the state with Interest at 6 per
"Tho purchasers of tho land under
this project are scattered through
out the very states from which we aro

"If Oregon makes good on a prop
osition aa widely and unfavorably
not to aay disgracefully known aa the
Columbia Southern project and turns
a failure Into a success, It will re
store confidence In our Irrigation en
terprises, and attract moro favorable
attention to Oregon than any other
act passed at thla aeu'on.
"That the atate will receive back
every dollar It puts Into thla project
la assured. The security la ample,
the title to most of the land la now
in the Federal government, which
la under contract to deed It to the
atate aa soon a It ia reclaimed. Tho
purpose of thla bill la to provide tor
Ita reclamation and upon completion
of the project the state will own the
land In fee. No better security
could be asked.
