The swan ;oriR of the lumbering in
dustry cn the Mississippi below Rock
Island is apparently about to be sung.
Another mill, the one operated at Bur-:
liERton by the ISur!ir.fito:i Lumber com- (
pany, hss now decided to retire per- j
manently from the business on ac-;
count of a shortage of logs, and but j
two are row left ;o carry on this in-!

company of Keohu'K, and the S. & J. C. j
Atlee mill at Fori .MaJ-ison.
The occupation cf sawing lops was
once practiced extensively in the tri
cities. and in fact throughout most of
the river. Thousands f men were
thrown out of employment when these
mills, one by cue, were forced to re
tire from business on account of a lack
f)f material upon which to work, and
an industry, at one time the most im
portant on the liver, has passed into
history, forming a parallel case with
tb' steamboat industry in this respect.
EXTENSIVE IXDISTIIV PASSES.
The following dispatch from Bur
lington v ill give the reasons for the
cesariion of the lumber business in
"The Burlington Lumber company's
eaw mill dosed down permanently last
Saturday after havir.j; been active for
almost 43 years. The closing of this
b?;; mill marks the passing of a very
extensive local industry, and between
an.d 300 men will be thrown out of
r-mnlcym'Ut as a result. It is unfor
tunate that so large an industry has
to be discontinued, but the supply of
logs was becoming so scarce that this
action was necessary.
"The planing mill, however, will be
kept running for about a year in order
to dispose of the material now on hand.
It was customary for the big mill to
close down each year from about the
midd'e of November to the first of
April, and the employes were not kept
in constant emplomer.t for this rea
son, but it will be a hard blow to many
families, as there is not any too much
employment to be obtained at the pres

"Two hundred sixty.five men were
employed and salaries which ranged
from $1.60 to $3.50 a day were paid, so
it can be easily seen that the concern
was an important one. The big mill
was started in this city in the year
ISO", and had been in operation ever
since except during the winter season.
Business was pretty good during the
past summer, as about 15,250,000 feet
of lumber were brought down the river
by the concern."
