; . FOREST RESERVE.
. SUMPTER. July 28. The setting
aside of the watershed of the John Day
Powder. Grand Ronde. and Burnt; Riv
ers, as a forest reXve. has completely
demoralised the plans of timber lo
cators i nthis sectieh. The territory
embraced in the reserve contains some
of the finest belts of p'.ne timber in the
world and timber men here for some
time have realised that the timber . Is
worth -millions. The cruisers do not
take kindly to the reserve proposition
and see In It a complete ending of the
large revenues thy have been reclvlng
from prospcUve Unfber locators. Many
of them have already made Snug: sums
and are still going ahead in th locat
ing business, clcJmlng that either there
is no truth In the report of the reserve
establishment or that the order has no
bearing on the land they are locating.
As soon as the news was received by
those in the section that the territory
In question had been set aside there
was much walling and all who under
stand what such an order, meajna have
desisted from attempting any further
locations. Cruisers are going ahead
Just the same and it is possible some
unwary Individuals will be found who
are willing to pay a good sum for hav
ing a flre piece of timber land pointed
out te them. :
