Not only In Dond, but gcnorally

From II. 'A. Kolley, president of

"To the Editor of Tho RuUctln and
People of Rend:
"Perhaps no creator boon could
come to tho community as a whole
-and to Bond In particular, than tho
building of tho big' Shovlln-Hlxon
lumber mills within Its limits. That
tho wholo county will bo boneuttod
by having such n large Industry
started In Its midst.' thero can bo no
doubt, and that Bond and its dltlzons
who have looked forward, so long,
nnd who hnvo so diligently worked
for Its accomplishment, have Just
causo to bo jubilant.
"It Ib a dovolopmont unprecedented
In Crook county, nnd ono for which
the wholo community should rojolco,
and though spoaklng Individually, as
tho president of tho Prlnovlllo Com
mercial Club, I feel safo in saying
that tho great mnjorlty of tho peoplo
"of Prlnovlllo, as well ns tho commer

That thero Is n growing tendency
throughout tho county to nsslst and

manifest, for not lator than last weok
tho County Court, which If selfish

county or its citizens rodounds to tho
benefit and advantage of every other

Dond It will mean for that city an
Increase of population anywhero from
2C00 to 3000, -which will mean a
greater domand for all kinds of ma

community, nnd which can bo dono

volopmont which fact should act as
n stimulus to all forms of Industry,
with tho result of a largo incrcaso.in

values. When It is roallzed that we
aro several hundred mllos from .tho
nearest distributing centers, and -with
a population doubled as It woro with
in n fortnight,-with bright prospects
of contlnuod growtli, it might well
bo considered that a distributing

It means an Immedlato development

NED TO CUT HO MILLION' FEET PER YEAR. A ROX FACTORY WILL
HE OPERATED IN CONNECTION.
OF THE SITE TO HE OCCUPIED HY THE NEW MILL, APPROXI.
MATKLY ACRES HAVE IIEEN DONATED HY THE UEND COMPANY
WHICH, WHEN THE MILL WAS FIRST PUVNNED, OFFERED TO (JIVE
A SHE FOR THE PURPOSE ON EITHER SIDE OF THE RIVER. IV THE
TRANSACTION, W. D. CHENEY HAS GIVEN TO THE REND COMPANY,
10 ACRES ADJOINING THE REMAINDER OF THE SISEMORE PLACE
ON THE EAST SIDE.
WITH THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE MILL CONSTRUCTION
COMES THE STATEMENT THAT THE SHEVI.IN SYNDICATE HAS PUR
CHASED THE ROGERS, OR HEND T1MIIKH COMPANY'S HOIiDINGS
ADJACENT TO REND THEREHY ADDING SOME ilo.OOO ACRES TO
THEIR HOLDINGS IN THIS VICINITY AND ASSURING SUFFICIENT
TIMRER FOit THEIR MILL FOR YEARS TO COME.

OTHER RAILROAD CONSTRUCTION WILL RE HY THE COMPANY
FOR liOGGING PURPOSES, THE CHARACTER OF THE TIMHERED
AREA ON WHICH OPERATIONS ARE TO HEGIN HEING ESPECIALLY
SUITED TO THIS FORM: OF LOGGING.
To Employ BOO Men.
Whllo ar. yot only estimates can bo
mndo it Is safo to say that employ
ment will bo given In tho mill, tho
box factory nnd In tho logging op
erations to C00 mon, who will re
colvo nn avorago wago of $3.00 pir
dty. Tho monthly pay roll, then,
figuring 20 working days to tho
month, will amount to $39,000. Es
timating that for each man employ
ed thoro will bo an addition of thrco
to tho population of tho city from trto
mill nlono gives an Incroaso ot 1G00.
Increased employment in other lines
ot buslnoss croated by tho mill
growth will add still othor hundr6ds.
To. tho.rnilronds tho mllLnrlll mean
an addition In traffic probably doubl
ing thnt which they now havo. Cut
ling 80 million foot In a year and
shipping tho wholo cut would moan
that over 20 cars would go .out from
llond dally for 3CG days. Halving
this and putting tho shipment at on
ly 10 cars a day means an increase
In yardage horo and'addod population
on tho railroad end alono.

pacity of tho mill will bo doubled.
