Seeking Milling
In Transit Rate
For Local Lumber
I.'ncouragement, In tbe shape of a
communication from the California
Sugar and Whlto Pine company, of
San Francisco, came to tho chamber
of commerce today in their effort
to secure a fair milling In transit
rste for this city.
This communication elates that
lumber shipments between Algoma
and Kirk on thn Southern Pacific
branch to Klamath Kalis Is too high
to Justlfr tbe stop over here In order
to havo It worked up Into partially
finished product ready for' shipment
to eastern points. However, If a nom
inal rate can be secured from the
Boathern Pacific to permit Jhls ma
terial from the small mills north of
here to be worked up In Klamath
Falls and then dispatched eastward,
the voluma or tho mills will bo swell
ed, tbe railroad will gain In Increas
ed tonnage and thn manufacturer In
this pIsco will bo benefitted Immense
ly. The nig Ilasln Lumber company Is
willing and ready to manufacture this
variety of products and Is equipped
to do so now.
Tho Southern Pacific has not fav
ored this plan but on other branches
of tho system, milling in transit rates
aro lu effect nnd work advantageous
ly to the cltlea where tho mill pro
ducts aro. worked up. In the southern
pine bolt, this rato is In effoct sue
essfully. During this present low prlco per
iod and at a tlmo when tbe manufac
turers want contracts, tho roads want
tonnage and labor wants employment,
tho milling In transit privilege would
work the greatest benefit to Klamath
Kails, as woll as tho mills north of
this locality. Tho stop-over would
permit tho rough lumber to bo sur
faced on both sides, worked up lu
sash, doors and other forms needed
for building purpoaos, and a saving
would bo affected on tho lumber
shlpmont as no waste would bo en
tailed upon the purchasor.

rViYe.' Charge Fails
Under Court Test
Thn effort to secure tho confine
ment of Thomas II. Hampton In a
sanitarium under a cbargo of mental
Incapacity, mado by his wife, met
with failure last evening, when tho
application iwas considered before
Judge Bunnell, who promptly dismis
sed the caso. Tho evidence showed
that Mr. Hampton was sound of mind
and that tho effort to place him In an
institution for tho Insano was the
outgrowth of an offort of his wlfo to
secure full control of his property.
Mr. Hampton was examined beforo
the court by two physicians, and his
mental alortnoss quickly removed any
lingering doubt that might havo re
mained after tho testimony of tbreo
medical men who stated that there
was no question but that Mr. Hamp
ton was mentally sound.
