SANITARY CONDITIONS OF CAP
ITAL. CITY WAS THJB GENERAL.
TOPIC OF THE DISCUSSIONS
WILL. INVESTIGATE. .
(From Saturdays Dally.)
Dr. Woods Hutchins, of Porland, the
Ute health officer - arrived in Salem
last evening and will remain here a few
days and coduct an Investigation an to
the sanitary conditions of this city. He
was a guest at the meeting; of the Ma
fon County Medical Society held at the
office of Drs. Morse & Robertson last
evening, and during; the meeting; made
an unofficial report of the recent ex
aminations made of .specimens of
water taken from the streams and dif
ferent veils in this city. In the areci
jnens, 1 -which were examined both
chemically and microscopically, there
was nothing; found to indicate, the pres
ence of typhoid or other disease terms.
The examinations -were made by the
state biologist and by the StaJe Health
Board at Portland.
, Dr. Hutchinson, during; his stay In
galem. will investigate a number of the
typhoid fever cases, in order to ascer
tain as many facts as possible in con
nection with "the cases, looking; toward
the possibility of finding; the source of
the trouble, and also a. remedy for It.
He win also investigate the river front,
the cesspools, sewers and everything of
a similar nature emptying; Into Mill
creek, abo the .closets not connected
with sewers. . "
One conclusion arrived at by the doc
tors was that It Is positively danger
ous for anybody to use the water from
any wells about this town unless the
water is boiled, because of the fact
trial the formation of the soil here is
aura that all wells are upplil with
urfaca water and that trie circulation
of the water underground is so free
that wells might easily be contaminat
ed from distant sources on account of
a lark of proper filtration. ,
The! primary object of the calling- of
the meeting of the medical society.
a for the purpose of electing two
delegates to toe meeting of the state
society, which meets in Portland the
tatter part of the month, was attended
to in the arly part of the evening and
irxalied In the election of Dr. CJ S.
Whit?, of nervals, and Dr. W. ' B.

At the conclusion Of the meeting Drs.
Mortie and" Jlobertaon entertained the

yesterday. Mr. Vols and family keep

the summer months. On last Sunday
there were four teams from Salem,

as to weather.
Mr. VoU came out to Oregon a lit

Kansas. He came on account of his ill
health, but at the present time he is
such a apecimen of hearty manhood as

Mr. Vols says some people told him
shen he moved to Silver Creek Falls
that he could not raise any vegetables.

mountains, but he has disproved this,

grown most all the common kinds of

AT. PRESENT RATE OF CUTTING
, PACIFIC ' COAST SUPPLY WILL
BE EXHAUSTED IN FORTY
YEARS RUSSIA ENTERS : MAR
KET AS COMPETITOR.
' (From Saturday's Daily.)
Our lumber interests on the . Pacific
Coast are of a magnitude not generally
realized.. The mechanical equipment la
unequaled by that of any other -lumber
field in the world. r - ' ;
'.We are informed by the department
of commerce and labor .through Its bu
reau of statistics, that the Pacific lum
bermen have been rapidly enlarging
their area .and volume of commercial
distribution, both. In the foreign and
domestic markets. '
According to the figures gathered by
the bureau of statistics, the redwood
shipments in 1902 from upper Califor-;
nia, mostly to San Francisco and the
southern coast, amounted ' to (using
round numbers for the purposes of this
article, 260,000,000 feet. In additon,
the California coast alone, received In
the past three fiscal years, pine and fir
to the extent of ,
1900 .. .. .. ..........570,000,000 feet
1901 .. .. ..408,000,000 feet
1902 ... .. ... ........'..606,000,000 feet
These figures show an enormous in
crease, particularly in 1902 over 1900.
The trade on the North Pacific coast
has expanded in equal volume. Ship
ments by water alone frpm Seattle
show: .' V ' "
1901 .... .. .506,000,000 feet
1902 . . . . . . ". .. . . . . .-. . 564.000,000 feet
A' movement of almost equal propor
tions is taking place. to points in the
Interior of the UnUsd States, by rail.
These figures show: '
1901 .... .I',....... ...364.000.000 feet
1902 . .' .... - .62.000,000 feet
In shingles sent east of the Cascade
mountains extending into the territory
east of the Missouri river, and In many
cases, as far east as the lakes, the rec
ords tell us: 1
1901 . . . . . . . .4,485.000.000
1902. ... ... .5,0 80.000,000
Xhe railroads are benefiting largely
by these enormous shipments of lum
ber and shingles. From Seattle' alone
were, sent: i-
1900 ..... -. . -. -i. : .3,141 carloads
1901 .. .. ............4,520 carloads
1902 . . .. ........... .6,026 carloads
Portland, Oregon, ranks next to Se
attle In lumber shipments. The record
1900 .. .. , 11.986 carloads
1901 .. .. .. ...........13,517 carloads
1902 .. ........ .....15,876 carloads
The heavy fhcrease hereby shown in
rail shipments of lumber from The Pa
cific Coast to points east, is a note
worthy contribution to transcontinental
tonnage. Insuring, as it does, return
freights for the freight trains sent to
the Pacific This is ass necessary as re
turn cargoes for ships. The opening of
the- Mississippi valley to the Pacific
Coast lumbermen brings the export
trade from the coast Into closer re
lations with the demands of the domes
tic consumer. He thus becomes directly
Interested In the progress of lumbering,
both In the northwestern states and th
southern states, as main sources ' of
supply. The entire East is chiefly , de
pendent for its immense consumption
of lumber, -on Ihese two sources. ,
The principal mills of the state ... of
Washington reported for 1902, 153,000,
000 feet to foreign destinations. If this
ratio holds good for the Pacific Coast
es a whole. It-means that as much as
70 per cent of our Pacific Coast lum
ber cut is put to domestic uses. The
other 30 per cent of the ret is sent to
foreign destinations, and . a growing
proportion of It to porta In" the Orient
Announcement was recently made by
the bureau of statistics of the' arrival
in the Chinese market of a first cargo
of. Siberian lumber, by a Russian ves
sel from Vladivostock. This Is Import
ant news, as it signalizes the entrance
of Russia m a competitor in the lum
ber market of the .Orient.' particularly
In timber less China At the same time
Russian lumber shipments are pro
jected .from, the Korean side of the
Yalu river. , Both In Siberia and on
the Yalu enormous resources .in lum
ber are awaiting development. It is
fortunate for us that .our Pacific Coast
lumber interests are In the fine condl
tlon above Indicated. We can easily
meet the immediate competition, -but
what of the future? Unofficial estimates
give the annual cut of lumber and shin
gles of the three Pacific states as:
Washington . .2,300,000.000 feet
California . . ......... 860.000.000 feet
Oregon .... 1. .... 740,000,000 feet
- Total .. .. .. ......3.900,000,000 feet
At this rate It Is calculated that the
fom-ests of the Pacific Coast will be ex
hausted in about forty years. " .
In this expectation It Is also fortu
nate for us. Indeed, more than fortti
nate that we own he Philippine Isl
ands. wth their 50.0O0.000 seres of vir
gin foretts. embracing 665 known var
ieties of woods. Some of them among
the most valuable woods known to
commerce . Mahogany, rosewoods, and
ebony in profusion. Millions upon
millions of acres of towering pines. The
value of these forests is Incalculable.
American built railways and American
sawmills will coin this, . wealth Into
gold. We did not acquire be Philip
pines a day too soon. In a few years
the lumbering' in thr Islands will be so
developed as to give us control of the
lumber trade of the Orient, and leave
a large, surplus available for export to
the United States and other parts of
the world. "' r 1
During; 4 he fiscal year 1902. the
United States exported 1.402JWO.O00 feet
of lumber and sawed timber, of which
229.000.000 feet were sen "Horn the Pa
cific Coase." Our export of .wood and
manufactures thereof advanced frora
(26.OO0.009 In 1893 to 57.000.O In 1903:
