Lumbermen Deride I'pou a Cut on Next
A very interesting piece of intelli
gence comes from St. Paul. It is to
the effect that a meeting of the mem
bers of the Mississippi and Rum
River Room company and the St. An
thony's Lumber company was held
in that city last week. The ostensi
ble purpose was the settling of
some of the affairs that have been
long pending between the two organ
izations in relation to the big sale of
timber lands made by the St. Antho
ny Lumber company to the Missis
sippi Uiver Lumber company last
winter. Incidentally it is given out
that the lumber output next season
was discussed with a view of keeping
the prices on a footing satisfactory
to the lumbermen. This taken with
the recent o-iirantic corporation at
Clinton would seem to indicate that
if the mill owners are not working
toward a trust it is very much like
it. notw ithstanding denials made.
Among those present at this meet
ing were Frederick Weycrhaiiser. of

The meeting was executive, and all
that was done is not made public,
but as far as can be ascertained no

although it is commonly reported
that the company is contemplating
something more in this direction in
the future. Matters in connection
w it h the company's proposed opera
tions in the woods this winter were
brought up. and various plans dis
cussed, :id the impression is that
the company will materially curtail

Wednesday, he met Capt. Marshall
with regard to raising the Rock river

The captain treated the Rock Island

said it was not within his power to
order the bridges or roadway raised
ami could not do so utiles by an or
