The Red Crown Mills are again iu
trouble. It seems that tbe company
has used all the wheat stored by
farmers and others, In making dour,
and the warehouse Is empty. Formal
demand bas been made by various

more attachment proceedings have
been started. Criminal porsecutlon Is
throattned against sonic of the officers.
There is a plan on font to settle with
the creditors and to start the milln
again. It Is to lie hoped that the
plan will succeed and further trouble
prevented. The Red Crown Mills

name. He received his rudimentary
educutlou in Ohio, and also attended
the Santlam Academy In l.h n county.

The Cctri Bark Industry,
We notice In some of the valley pa
pers an occasional Item In regard to
small shipments of this article. Now
this Industry was Inaugurated in Leb
anon in the year 1883, and since
that time something over tour hun
dred ton have been shipped from this
Utile city alone. In 1898, Dr. Latuber
son and Captain George Pope of Port
laud, bought and shipped 148 tons,
paying an average price of $00 per ton
for the same. A portion of this bark,
also Oregon grape root Is a component
part of Llverlue, which is a Lebanon
enterprise, the members of this con
cern are residents ot Linn county, and
own property here. We are pleased
to note the success of this enterprise in
our city, notwithstanding the fact
that the Albany papers have tbe plant
located there in a large two-stnry brick
building, we-feel assured tbat Llverlue
will grow aud flourish in the manu
facturing city of its birtb. Much credit
is due the general manager, Dr. J. A.
Lambersnn, for the tact and energy he
has shown in the working out, and
his knnwledge-of chemistry of this
