LAMB-DAVIS MILL One of the Largest of Its Kind and Best Equipped UP-TO-DATE LUMBER MILL In tUe NorlliweM. Snvtns of the By- Product Will lie a Large Item ol I'n.ili. The big mill of the Lamb-Davis Lum ber Company is rapidly approaching completion. The mechanics v.ho have been employed on it now for about a year are putting the finishing touches everywhere. The belts, of which there are hundreds, varying in size from two inches in width and a few feet in length to four feet wiile and over a hundred feet long, are being rapidly put in po sition. The boilers, of which there is a battery of live large ones, are all in position. The connections are not all mado yet but in two weeks more this part of the work will be about com plete. Theic may possibly l)e larger mills in tho state of Washington than the Lamb-Davis mill, but we are assured liy competent and well posted mill men that there is not a mill in the North west that is so thoroughly equipped with up-to-date labor saving ma chinery. The feeding of the lires under the boilers Will even be done automat iccally by machinery. Every panicle of waste material will be put to some use. The saving effected in what might very properly be called the by-product will be an item of no inconsiderable consequence in it>elf. In operating the big mill tho part that human \*bnr will play will be com paratively sma'l and will mainly be conlined to polling a lever here and pushing one at another point. To use an expression that was made a house hold word a few years ago by the East man Kodak Company —with a slight change—human hands touch the levers and machinery does the rest. The amount of money which this company has invested in various enter prises, together with others which will be begun as soon as the plans are pre pared and some other prellmiaeriei are gone over, will not fall far short of a half million dollars. The water system ifl already so far completed that nil the residences in the western portion of the town are sup plied by the Tumwaler gravity system. The electric lighting plant will be put in within the next three months. A large part of the machinery for the same is already on the ground. The large planing mill und sash anil door factory together with a dry kiln of large capacity will be built just as soon the work on the big mill is completed. It is the purpose of the company to put to use every particle of material. To this end they will make laths and may also later on add a box factory. A feature of the mill we failed to mention is the hundreds and hundreds of feet of conveyors, of different kinds, conveyors for carrying the logs to the MWf,Other conveyors for carrying the material from the two big double edge baml saws which cut the log £oing and coining, to tlio rn-saws, gang saws, cut oIT saws and edgers. and still other con veyors to carry the material to the platter, to the dry kiln and to the yard. Several thousand feet of conveyors car ry the sawdust and other refuse and waste to the boiler room to beconsumed in the furnaces. The whole plant is a perfectly bewildering mass of machin ery, belts, pulleys and conveyors, that a green hand can make neither heads nor tails of. About the middle of May it may bo possible bo make a trial run,but it may be t«o weeks later before the mill will begin to run regularly. It is estimated that the company will give employment to from two to three hundred hands in its various depart ments, including the logging camps in the mountains. The Importonoa of this enterprise to this town cannot be too highly valued. It is only second to the Great Northern railway. Th* company owns an extensive and valuable tract of timber land up abotlt Lake Wenatcbee, a large part of which is western pine, a valuable and useful wood for finishing. It has been estima ted that there is enough timber to em ploy the mill from twenty to thirty years. The dam which the company is hav ing built across the- Wenatchee river near town is for the purpose of raising illß water and Hooding the lowlands ad joining the mill in order to make a log pond. T!ie<lam has already cost over thirty thousand dollar* and is not completed. The cool weather of the pait we-k has allowed the work to progress sufficient ly until now there is practically iiodan gerof it not being able 10 stand high water.
