SUMPTER LUMBER CO.
A. W. Ellis Stlls His Interest
to George Stoddard.
A. W. Ellis, who has had an interest In
the Sumpter Lumber company, disposed
of It Monday to George Stoddard, thus
Riving the entire business to Stoddard
Brothers, who now have virtually com
plete control of all the mills in this valley.
They have ordered full apparatus for
new dry kilns, using the hot air blast pro
cess for drying lumber, so that they can
supply the trade more fully than ever with
lumber and material for building purposes.
The mill here employs forty men, the
force having been recently Increased to
that number, owing to the heavy local de
mand. Notwithstanding the large capa
city of tills firm's mills, it Is necessary to
ship in here from the Bridal Veil mills
large quantities of high grade lumber.
The company has added to Its stocks a
full line of paints, oils, glass and build

"WHEREAS; Fred Woorleyand Alex
ander Steadman, when the president of
tiie United States called for volunteers to
go into the far distant Philippine Islands

hold their country's honor and make
more glorious yet their country's flag, so
nobly responded to their country's call,
WHEREAS; They unflinchingly walked
In the paths of danger to unfurl Old
Glory's folds more gloriously to the
world, and by their brave and intrepid ac
tion on the field of battle won the admira
tion of the world, and particularly those
who knew them best, therefore be it
RESOLVED; By the mayor and common
council of the town of Sumpter in regular
session assembled this 30th day of Sep
tember, A. D., 1899, that the home com
ing of these two loyal volunteers be
marked by festive occasion, and that we

Opportunity Neglected by Portland.
A few hundred dollars, with some know
ledge of the business and good judgment
would have been sufficient any time this
half-century past, and are yet, to enable a
man to make himself independent in a
comparatively short time In our Oregon
mineral mount-tins. And for men with
greater capital the field has been and Is
still more Inviting. Gradually this fact
Is becoming appreciated in other cities
on the Sound, In Spokane, Salt Lake,
Denver, St. Louis and cities farther east,
and in Europe; and capitalists are begin
ning to take hold of some of the eastern
Oregon mines. The field Is large; op
portunities are numerous; gradually pur
chasing and developing capital will flow
In, and if Portland residents do not take
advantage of these opportunities as indi
vidual investors, Portland as a city must
reap more or less benefit from this in
creasing investment and development
whether much or little depends largely
upon whether we make this city Import
ant and necessary to that great, rich re
gion. Portland Telegram.
