THE LOGGING OUTLOOK.
Ia Moving Slowly A
ab tae R.plil..
Owing to the fact that the rafting
works up the river are still out of re
pair, logs are moving slowly from the
pineries. An up-river exchange says
the big ice gorge and flood at Chip
pewa Falls. Wis., early last winter,
brought disaster to these works when
it went out. Davenport mi, I men
lost a number of thousands of dol
lars' worth cf logs in that move
ment, they being caught in the jam
and carried out into the river, to be
recovered in only a small proportion.
The same rush of ice and logs and
water swept away the rafting plant,
consisting of booms and pile driven
pockets for the sorting of logs ac
cording to their ownership, aud so
on. This work has been for some
time in process of replacement. Bat
not only are the logs coming slowly
now; they are likely to come slowly
for most of the summer. There was
light cut in the pineries. The

Rock Island, is so largely interested.

last wiuter. An average cut with it
has been in the neighborhood ot
300,000,000, and has gone as high as
1,100,000,000. In the face of tbe log
cuts of the past the small cut of this
year, independent of the condition of
affairs at the rafting works, argue a
small output of logs. Mr. Weyer
hauser is reported to have admitted
a loss of $300,000 in his own mills

lhe Cvclone tore a part of her tow

consist! d of two half rafts, one of
logs and one of lumber. The lum
ber came through all right, but the
logs went to the bow wows. The Cy
clone came on through with her half
raft ot lumber, which was tied up
below the Mueller Lumber com
pany's mill at Davenport. Then the
boat, which escaped damage herself.

of the day, both above and below

up a great part of the wrecked tow.
though hnndreds of logs got through
and are adrift ou down the river.
Two large pieces came down. One
of them had the lines hanging to it,
and when it struck a pier and split
in two on it, one part went on
through, but the other part was held
to the pier by the lines, and clung
there until the Cyclone got it. The
work of gatting the rbf s together
again was begun, and carried as far
as possible with the material in
nana, it was one ot the most com
plete wrecks of the kind that has
passed LeClaire and the rapids in
vears. It is supposed that the
draught of the cuirent crossing the
sanaoar drew the rait upon it, as is
usually the case where a low bit of
ground is thus overflowed.
