"Iiong May It O'er the Homo of the Free and tbe band of the Brave." ' Columbia coamrrs timer lands. It it not an infrequent occurrence, ty any means, to happen upon est mates of the world' supply of avail " able timber, especially of the United Slates. To people of the Pacific coast a statement that a timber famine it imminent seems extremely abaurd, bat wheu unv tmeios Iheirsslf in gleaning data in regard to the matter, facta be come at once appreciated and their vxistence more fully realized. Many Authorities: obtainable demonstrate that the slaughter of valuable timber goes steadily onward with little heed to results, and the facts are alarming. Northwestern Oregon and the entire western part of Washington contains the greater part of the valuable tira- frsr of this coast. Of course many thousand acres of very valuable tim ber is ret to be found in Central and Southern Oregon and in parts of Cen tral Washington, bat when the thought presents itself of the vastly growing demand for that commodity it strikes the casual observer that the supply will soon be vastly inadequate. A. new era of civilizatioa is finding its war into countries which hereto fore have bad little use for a commod ity such as the timber of this coast, hence the demand becomes greater, and improved business conditions in our own country are creating a grow lug steady demand for the product la Japan and China, where an lm fetus in railroad-building and other improvements of a similiar nature have only recently been inaugurated, we find a demand for good quality lumber, and that demand can be sup plied only from this coast. When we take into consideration the comparatively small scope of coun try to supply that and other demands, does not the situation take on an alto gether different phase from that first impressed upon you when you have viewed with awe the imaginary bound less quantity of timber to be seen on every band? For example, Columbia county contains, perhaps, as nearly as it can be estimated, 300,000 acres of timber land, and while many acres would supply a much greater quan tity, yet a fair estimate would place the amount per acre at 60,000 feet. This estimate of 15,000,000,000 feet is abont as fair as can be placed upon the timber of Colombia county, and while Tillamook county may possess one-fourth more and Clatsop county about an equal amount, the entire amount for Northwestern Oreson would not far overreach 50,000,000,000 fret. H malion is obtained from a very reliable source tha the destruc tion of valuable limber on this coast is greater now than in former years when its real worth was less appreciated. Competition and demand for better grade of legs is closer than formerly, consequently one or sometimes two lugs are cut from a tree and the re mainder is left to rot upon the grronnd. In nine cases out of every ten there yet remains several thousand feet ot valuable lumber in the top of the tree, but contracts demand absolutely clear logs, thus occasioning the wanton waste. It is not misjudging to state that the price of timbei lands in Columbia county will never again reach the low Water mark to which the ebb in busi ness affairs has carried it within the last few years. X growing demand at better prices for timber lands is al- ready noticed, and while this product Is the chief stock in trade of this County, any increase in prices will be gladly received. Ixgs now command better price than has obtained since 1893, and it is confidently expected that a gradual increase in price will be realized. Ths fisheries committee of the As toria Progressive Commercial Associa tion is now arranging for a fisheries congress, to be held there. The mat ter will be taken up immediately after regatta week and it is thought that ar rangement can be made so that the congress can be held in November. Btitl. David Starr Jordan and many other national authorities will be pres ent. The best means of advancing the great fishing industry of Oregon will be disvnssed, and it is expected that many new ideas will be brought out. The artificial propagation of sal Dion will be the most interesting subject to come before the congress. This matter will receive much attention and practical experiments will be made with salmon eggs from the hatcheries. Wb fail to sre the merit in a special session of the legislature at this late day. Of course the newly-elected in embers of that body would compose it whenever it is convened, and if the forty day period is insufficient to trans act the busiiieag, let Governor Geer reconvene the body immediately after the regular session. And it must not be forgotten that the next asaemly will be fony-fonr republican on Joint ballot mg something to be accomplished the w.vr of valuable legislation. It is easy for the fellows who pnt llioir time chewing Battle Axe and whittling dry goods boxes around the shady corners to plan and execute the maneuvers necessary to win battles on land or sea, but for seasoned veteran whose live hav besn devoted to the study of war in all its hideonsnesa the front it is quite another thing. Whatbvkb effect the war with Spain may have upon the future of the American army, it is now generally cnueoiled that it will give the United Slates one of the largest as well a one ol the most modern navies in the world. The victory at Manila, followed op by that at Santiago, ha revolutionized congressional sentiment and converted many former opponents to an increase of the navy to the opinions of their constituents. Many of them have changed front and are now champions of the movement fer a great naval force. LUMBER ORDERS COME WEST Paciflo Coast Supplies the Nation With Large Timber. Tacotua Ladirer. Piatt B. Walker, editor of ths Mississippi Valley Lumberman, one of the leading lumber journals of America, is la this city on a roar of the Br nd redwood regions tb PaciSo coast. Mr. Walker is one of ths best informed lumbermen in tb land. is about 45 years of sge, and in conversa tion delivers cold facts and formidable fig ures with the ease and rapidity ot a rapid- Bra gan, Ha says; As long ss the present transportatioa rates continue, Paciflo ooaat mills Bad more profitable to ship rough lumber foreign porta, so the thing will adjust itself. Eastern trees are not largs enough to make big Umbers, and nearly all sncb orders go to Puget sound or Oregon, no matter with what firm they an placed. 'The red cedar shingle from Paget sound has entered the field to stay, and is used in every town in the United State. A rival was threatened a few years ago in ths Southern cypress, bat it proved so much Inferior that it went completely ont ef use. "While yon have no rival in the North ern Central states, the same cannot be said of the South. "From Galveston to Mobil and north ward to Arkansas then ia an enormous eut of yellow pine, and as there is almost no horn market it is nearly all shipped north. Much of it go right into Minneapolis. Shipping facilities ar poor in Texas, aad bat littls is shipped to foreign ports. Minneapolis, which may be taken as lumber center, ia 3000 miles from Paget sound and 1800 from the Texas lumber dis trict, so yon see the opportunities ar about equal in that respect for both sections, but Washington fir is undoubtedly going to keep the lead. This region has a great advantage In logging. Tb logs ben will average 80 feet without limbs, while with as sad In ths South C feet is considered fair. "The pine logs now being cut go about 12 to the thousand, while your fir logs will cat 2000 feet to tb log. I hare known on pine tract of five mil lion feet to average 22 logs to tb thousand. bat that la an extreme case. "While economy is desired, the danger of exhaustion of the timber supply in Oregon ana Washington Is much exaggerated. While the government expert are ain- oere and are painstaking, and ar scientific in their resesrebes, they are not infallible, and their results ar not always born eat by facts. Twenty years sgo they announced that if the rate of catting remained stationary the timber of Minnesota would be exhausted in 28 years. Now th rate of cutting baa been trebled, and today tb date for exhaus tion ia still pot 25 years ahead. "Th trouble 1 that their data la weak. They do not know bow much there is to be gin with; they don't know how mncb baa been eat, and they do not know how much there is left. ' "Of course, fires do much damage, bat they ar not won hare than they ar in Minnesota or Wisconsin, in fact not so bad, for tbey ran there in the living tree. The timber really never is all cut for the loggers go over the same ground several times. Tby are still logging land in Mia nesota which was first cnt 25 years ago, Small trees grow op, aad logs considered worthless before become valuable. "The time will com when all th coast hemlock will be eagerly sought. It it a far better wood than it is ever given credit with being. 'There is no question ot competition be tween Washington fir and th white pin of toe Worth Central state. In the first pise the demand is largt enough for both, and also the freight rates limit ths coast trade in the East to a class of lumber which does not grow to any large extent East. - "Coast shipments to th East consist of either shingles, big Umbers, or high-grade dressed lumber. Tb natnre of th Eastern timber makes it more profitable to supply tb demand for rough aa ordinary dressed lumber than to devote too much attention th bigbest clsss, or perhaps to state it more clearly, wa cannot get enough of it to supply the demand." Bow to Avoid limber Famine. Philadelphia Record. There is but one avenue of escape from a future fatnin la timber namely, tb in trod action of scientific supervision of th forests, and of judicious catting of lumber; for under such improved conditions th value of standing timber would continually increase in greater proportion than the da- crease due to cutting. It is owing largely to th effort ot th forestry associations that tbess simple economic laws ar now gaining a foothold in the lumber trad. Dreadfwlly- nerves.

The answer of Spain to the terms of peace wa not entirely satisfactory to this government, and far ther negotiation are in progress today, Definite results in the way of a complete acceptance is looked for by tomorrow night, snd possibly late today. One prominent official who participated in the conferences said: "Th answer U not enough, but we ar hopeful for tb result." rormer negotiations then ar noses- saryT" was asked. Yes, but we look fer something definite tomorrow." Beyond this, no member ef th cabinet is willing to go. The president aad Secretary Pay are exerting every effort t prevent new ot tb progress of negotiation trans. piring until a definite result can be an nounced. Today several member of the cabinet wer In conference with th president re garding th situation. Shortly before 11 :80 Secretary Day, who had been in conference with the French ambassador, called to con sult tb president regarding peace negotia tions. Th plainest evidence that peace has not yet eoms is the admission, practically official, that th negotiation are still in progress, added to th fact that th utmost secrecy ha been imposed by th president Member of the cabinet believe thai by Fri day morning, at the latest, and probably before, a definite peace outcome will be as sured beyond all doubt. At th White Hons it was understood that Cambon would transmit to Spain to day a cablegram stating that complete and and immediate acceptance of the terms Im posed without reservation woald b essen tial to effecting peace under tb present terms offered by tb United State. In this connection it has developed lost oeior the Spanish answsr wa delivered yesterday, that President McKinley has an nounced that aa extra session of th senate would be held doubtless in November. With the peace situation at that stage where a complete agreement is regarded likely at any moment, the disenssloa has again started as to convoking an extra ses sion, but McKinley within the past 24 hours has said positively that he has no intention of calling the house together, though, of course, th senate will have to meat in ex tra session to ratify th traty of peace. Th president added that th preliminary de tail incident to the treaty of peace would take so much time that tb senate would not have to meet until November. Washihqtow. Aug. 10. Th preliminary negotiations looking toward tb conforma tion of peace advanced a long step today when th secretary of state and th French ambassador agreed upon tb term upon which future negotiation for a treaty are to be conducted, and reduced these to th form of a protocol. This protocol, it is true, yet to be signsd, and is to be submitted to the Spanish government before the formal signatures ar affixed, but th administra tion's view as to tb progress mad today was set out in Secretary Day' statement, which follows: -we nave agreed upon a protocol, em bodying the proposed terms for the nego tiation of a treaty of peace, including th evacuation of Cuba and Porto Bico, and it Is expected the protocol will be executed, ft can be stated that th terras ar precisely those laid down by th president la his or iginal note about a week ago. It is believed that nothing but a few formalities remain to be disposed of to secure tbe signature to the proctocol." CASTOR I A For Infants and Children.
