State Fire Warden John Marrs
Gives Interesting Data About
Lookout Stations.
Mr. Earl McKinney and Miss
Anna PierceWill Make
Their Home Here.
Many Telephone Lines and
Trails Have Been Built
Since Last Fall.
Continued from Saturday, April 12.
That Linn county has a systematic
forust control to guard against forest
fires, and that the vast timber hold
intfs throughout the Hastem port inn
ot the county will he vigilantly pa
trolled during the dry season, was
learned yesterday afternoon from
State J;irc Warden John Marrs, of
Mr. Marrs, who has charge of all
of the timber in this section outside
of the forest reserves, was in this city
on his way to Portland to attend the
annual meeting of the Linn county
Timber association. Members of this
organization arc the owners of vast
tracts o'f timber in this county, and
the purpose of the organization is
to prepare means for the protection
of the timber against fires. Mr. Marrs
is the field representative of the asso
ciation and is now in I'ortland at
tending the meeting at which time
plans tor the coming season arc to he
At present, Mr. Marrs stated, that
he had twenty forest rangers work
ing under him, who were scattered at
lookout stations throughout the tim
ber belt. Recently, according to Mr.
Marrs, five telephone lines have been
built through the timbers, and since
last fall many trails have been con
structed. New lookout stations which have
just recently been built lo which have
been constructed telephone lines are
numerous and scattered in such a way
that they practically lake in every
section o'f timber in the belt. One line
has been built from Crawfordsvillc
to Horse Rock on the summit of the
divide between the Calapooia and the
Mohawk rivers, with K'.i er l;ox in
charge of the lookout station on
Horse Rock. A line has been built
from Sweet Home to' Hal! I'cter. An
other from l.acomb, in an indirect
route through the timber to Mill City.
This line runs over Cleveland rock,
the big bare space in the mountains
plainly visible direetly east of this
city. W. I.. Iturtou, of Lacomb,, is
the lookout stationed on the rock.
Another line has been built from Jor
dan to the headwaters of Thomas
creek where it intersects with the
Lacomb-Mill City line. There are two
other lines running through (he belt,
one from Crawfordsvillc up the mid
dle fork of the Santiain river to' Vel- '
lowstone, with John Roberts, of Craw- i
fordsville, in charge of the lookout !
station at (hat point, ami (he other j
from Whiteomes, on the middle fork
of the Santiain, to Rocky I'oiut with
Mr. Itrady in charge f the lookout
l;rom this it can be seen that the
telephone lines constructed under the
supervision of Mr. Marrs form a reg
ular net work through (his timber belt.
Of course Ibis telephone ami lookout
system does not include the limber in
the reserves because these forests are
patrolled by government rangers, but
it mainly provides for the protection
oi (lie timber holdings of large com
panies and individuals.

But No Voter Has To Register
For Coming Election
Says Russell.
Women of this city, vested with the
prerogative o'f casting their votes at
the coming special city election, when
it will determine whether the new
city charter will Jc adopted, have
been fairly busy for the past week,
calling at the county clerk's office
in person and by phone, seeking in
formation with reference to register
ing. "The present city charter does not
require-that the voters should register
for this election" said Deputy County
Clerk Rufus Russell! this afternoon,
"but I understand that the new char
ter contains a clause which requires
that every voter shall register prior
to any election. If the new charter
passes then it will be necessary for
everyone to register before voting but
until then the ladies can rest assured
that they will be safe in voting at the
coming election whether they have
registered or no't."
In the opinion of Mr. Russell, the
women of the city have taken an act
ive interest in politics, and this
judgment is based upon the number of
inquiries coming in daily at the clerk's

decision in favor of the defendants
this afternoon in the case of Joseph
Liska ct al vs. J. Moulett, et al to set
aside a contract.
The case went to trial late yester
