Is the Flume 5afe.
The new flume put In by the town
lost summer la a good and substan
tial one, but It Is very poorly under
pinned, no foundation, whatever,
except at toe end of the bottom
sills. Ia many places the flume is
bulit through a cut considerably
wider than the flume, made so by
the flood last spring, and with such
flimsy foundation It looks reason
able to believe when the freshets
come this spring the flume will be
filled wltb water and have such
weight that the underpinning will
give way, letting the flume break In
two, In places where It happens to
be a foot or more from the ground
underneath It. The result of such a
break in the flume caa be surmised.
We want to say that so far as the
construction of the flume Is concern
ed, aad the material used, It could
not have beea made better, and Is
Urge enough to carry all tlie water
that Is likely to come down the can
yon, If it remains lu Its present position.
Tuesday evening Dsn P. Mslloy sab
mitted to sn interview on the wool
question. From Mr. Msllor we gleaned
the following in substance: Asked if
moat of Lake county wool would be con
tracted ,before shearing, he replied tqat
within two weeks F. M. Miller, and
Bailey & Massingill for C M Caver.y,
will have nearly all the clips contracted ;
so much of it in fact, that outside buy
ers will not come in here for what is
left, and these local buyers will, no
doubt, pick np all the scattering clips
before shearing time. . He said, even if
s buyer should come, he would be able,
to almost name bis own price for what
wss left, but it was bis opinion that Mr.
Miller and Bailer A Massinitill would,
unless called . off by the firms they are
buying for, continue to pay the top
price as long as there wss any wool to
he had ; what the top price would be
after the bulk of the output for this
county i contracted for be could not
say. Most of the sheepmen are coming
to town to sell. Today, he said, as
many as six producers contracted their
clips, and others were expected in from
the ranges dsiiy.
Asked about his opinion of the price
be said he had not been in favcr of con
tracting and would have held if all
others, or enough others to form a ma
jority of the output, bad held, and be
believed that they would have received
18 cents. Although be said, he ha,d
not forgotten four vears ago when they
were asked to contract their, wool at
this season of the year for 18 cents, and
they refused on the ground that the
same company making the offer was st
that time contracting wool in Montana
for 20 and 22 cents.' Wool dropped and '
Lake county sheepmen realized 10 cents
for their clips.
Dan believes that the clip will be
much heavier this spring than last.
He thinks sheep will shear one to one
and one-half pounds more to the sheep.
There will be close to two million
pounds this year, be said.
Mr. Malloy also informed us that a
move was on foot to organize a stock
company to put in a shearing plant at
the Loveless plate, six miles north of
town, where a big warehouse would be
built and 25 machines would be run by
steam power. This done, another year
the sheepmen would shear and store
their wool, advertise sale days and pool
their wool as they do in ths Shaniko
CuUEtrjV WwC-re they receive the ' top "
price, always. Several of the heavy
producers are in on this scheme and it
is pretty certain that it will go. 1
Wool Sales This Week.
Wool sales recorded this wsek are
about as follows : -
Bailey & Msssingill. 200,000 pounds
for the week, and 400,000 pounds for
the season, to far.
F. M. Miller during the week has
bought about 100,000 pounds, and 455-
000 pounds for the season.
Contracts are being made every day
br both parties. V, L, Snelling is now
in Warner buying for Miller, and Mas
singill has just returned; also C. P.
Sessions has just returned from a trip
for Bailey & Massiugill.
It is believed that half the wool in
the county will be contracted by the
end ol the week.
