NIVAL BATTLE ON?
LUMBER COMPANIES FIGHT FOB
POSSESSION OF LOGS.
Parker & Stewart Company Wins En
counter, in Which Tugs and Dyna
mite Figure at AshlandHines Com
pany Men, Who Were Worsted, Se
cure an Injunction.
Special to The Journal.
Ashland, Wis., Sept. 1.An exciting naval
battle occurred on Chequamegon bay this morn
ing, and was witnessed by 2,000 spectators.
From 5 o'clock until noon three tugs were fight
ing for the possession of a million feet of white
pine logs. The battle ended with the Barker &
Stewart Lumber company in possession of the
logs and the Kdward Hines Lumber company the
loser from all appearances.
The battle was begun by the tug Tom Dow
ling, in command of Captain Harry Brower,
starting to tow a raft from the Durfee boom
to the Barker & Stewart boom, under orders
from the Barker & Stewart Lumber company.
The Hines Lumber company chartered the tug
Crosby, in command of Captain Cornwall, to
prevent this and the Crosby ran a boom across
the entrance, blocking the Dowling from getting
In the meantime Barker & Stewart executed
a flank movement. The tug Ashland was char
tered to tow a raft from the Keystone boom
to the Barker & Stewart mill. A few sticks of
dynamite were used, several piles were blown
up and the Ashland attached a tow line to the
raft. The Crosby was immediately ordered to
let the Dowling go and stop the Ashland."
Edward Hines, president -of the Edward Hines.
Lumber company, Isaac Baker and S. J. Cus
son, his right-hand men, appeared on the scene
and ordered Captain Murdock, of the Ashland,
to drop the raft. This Captain Murdock re
fused to do. Chief of Police Maalowskl and
four patrolmen were sent for to keep the peace,
but would not interfere.
Brave Words Bandied.
"These logs are mine," said Mr. Hines.
."These people are attempting to steal them in
broad daylight. Why don't you officers arrest
"The boom around the raft is our-property,"
said Mr. Stewart, ''and the raft is my property
until cut under a contract with the-Hines peo
ple, when the lumber becomes theirs.".
"Barker & Stewart have a contract to saw-
25,000,000" feet of logs each year for us," said
Mr. Cusson, "and they have already .sawed
3,000,000 more than that this year with our per
mission. We don't want-any more sawed- this
At this point. the Ashland got up all .steam
and started to pull the raft into the bay, the
Crosby attempting to prevent her.. The Ashland
moved steadily forward and the Crosby under
direction of Mr. Cusson, made several unsuc
cessful attempts to break the booms. The bat- I
tie waged while the Ashland was pulling the
raft of logs one-half mile to the Barker &
Stewart mill, when the Crosby got the raft
jammed into a corner and a deadlock ensued.
At this time the Dowling appeared with the
first raft of logs and took them into the Barker
& Stewart boom and then came out to aid the
Ashland. With her aid the. other raft of logs
was safely landed in the boom and Barker &
Stewart had won the first fight.
Meantime the Hines men had secured a tem
porary injunction restraining Mr. Stewart from
moviDg the logs, but the sheriff could not serve
the injunction as Mr. Stewart kept aboard the
Dowling a quarter of a mile from shore.
Work for Supreme Court.
The Ashland and the Dowling are this after-,
noon towing the remainder of the logs from
the Keystone boom to the Barker & Stewart
mill. The Crosby did not attempt to inter
fere a second time. The supreme court will
probably settle the controversy.
The board of review of the city of Washburn
is wrestling with the assessment of the Hines
Lumber company, with the object ofw raising its
valuation. The state tax commission refused
to take action and the board of review took it
upon itself to revise the assessment. Mem
bers say that Assessor Lien assessed the Hines
company on a valuation of $57,000 on lumber
and $6,000 on logs, whereas he should have placed
the valuation at about three times that amount.

LA CRESCENT'S SCHOOL TEOUBLE
Faction Which Is After New Building
Wins and oses.
LA CRESCENT. MINN.At the school meet
ing last night the school faction won a complete
victory and then lost. By a vote of 70 to 49
the villagers determined to build the new $6,700
school building, but decided also that It could
Dot be built upon the old site, which is still
occupied by the remaining walls of the half
demolished old building, which has been ordered
to stand by a court's injunction.
To have the injunction dissolved would take
months of legal red tape. The board has no
money with which to purchase a new site. and
the prospect is that La Crescent, with plenty
of money to build, will be without a schoolhouse
the coming winter.
