In the passing of Grover Cleveland the people of the United States mourn the loss of a public man whose services the value of which are yet to be de termined. Of hid public services, as attorney and sheriff of Erie county, New York, mayor of Buffalo, governor of New York state and twice president of the United States, his best and most en dearing monument is the fact that he ever struggled for the principle he believed to be right, regardless of ■where it took him. His most strenuous political op ponents have always admired the man, even when most contesting his meas ures, for the very reason that the hon esty of his purpose was fully under sood. The United States in several ■ways are the better for Grover Cleve- ' land having lived. ; SOLVING A PROBLEM. If there is one problem which has presented a tough front to the settlers of this Coast, it has been the proposi tion of how to clear up its logged off lands. The tenderfoot and the unvac cinated have taken contracts to clear up logged off lands at a hundred dol lars or more per acre. Most of these contracts resulted in loss or bank ruptcy. It is easy enough to spend $25 in labor and dynamiting one big stump. Logging engines have been used quite successfully, reducing the cost of blasting and hand labor very largely. The cost, however, remains excessive. There is in operation, twenty miles south of Taeoma, a ma chine which is doing the best and most economical work, in clearing up logged off lands, that has so far been invented. This machine is on the farm of P. L. Mead. It is simply a 4-horse power horizontal boiler and engine, used to drive a 30-inch blower. The air from this blower passes into a square cast box and is tapped with twelve one and a half inch hose couplings. To each of these is attached about fifty ' feet of l, l .j inch three-ply hose which is taken around to stumps within the ra dius it will reach. The nozzle of the; hose is supported on a crutch. A small fire is started in the base of the stump, and the blast is turned on it. ' It immediately becomes a roaring vol- j cano. The blast is turned so that the fire will burn a gap through the ! stump, perhaps one foot in width, j After the stump has burned and fallen ! into the burning, the hose still con- j tinues to blow on the flames and di- j rects them along the course of the: heavy roots. It will burn these! roots out below the plowing line. Af- ■ ter the roots are burned out as much j as possible, the blastis turned on the ! body of the stump, which is quickly j devoured. A four-foot fir stump can be burned up in from ten to twelve hours. Mr. Mead estimates that he will clear up the heaviest timber land at a cost not to exceed $35 an acre. j This is something that will stand in vestigation, and should prove of tin- \ tord value to the Coast states.—West j Coast Lumberman. COSTLY FOREST FIRES. In an article in the July McClure's ou the Forestry Bureau, Will C. Barnes tells of the enormous saving to the government by the checking of forest fires. "If the Forest Service had done no more than keep down the fire losses, their work would not have been in vain. In 1901 the total area burned over in the government forests equalled 2% acres in every thousand, while in 1907 the burned area was only 9-10 of an acre iu every thousand. No record of the money value of the earlier fire losses was kept, but that the loss ran into the millions, no one who has seen the miles of burned over tracts can doubt. "The following table shows the fire losses in the national forests for the past three years: AREA ACRES VALUE OF OP BURNED TIMBER YEAR FORESTS OVER BURNED 1905 85,627,000 279,592 $101,282 1906 106,999,099 115,416 76,183 1907 164,154,000 212,858 31,589 "That is, in 1905 the loss from fire was more than tiiree times as great as in the year 1907, with an area of for ests almost twice as great to protect and control." TRICKERY CHARGED (Continued from page one.) niish county exacted a written pledge from Mr. Files, although had they de serted him, as the Walla Walla coun ty vote did, it would have forced Files to leave Oiympia before the third ballot was taken. Hut in the absence of a written pledge nobody's "honor' is at stake, and there you have it. "It is easily to be seen that the greatest danger to Mr. Piles' candi dacy two years from now will come from his interference In state politics as planned by the Ankeny manage ment. "What makes me believe that there is no agreement in which Ankeny's name is mentioned? Because Ankeny had nothing whatever to do with Plies election. On the first ballot Piles had two votes from Whatcom, two from Snohomish and one from Clark counties. The twenty-two votes promised us at Tacoina were cast for Mr. Sweeney. After the third ballot I went to Mr. Crocker and in ; sisted that he fulfill his pledge made |at Tacoma. He said he was power . less to do so; that 'Mr. Sweeney fur j nished the boys' campaign expenses land the vote belonged to him.' i "I said: 'This surely does not ap ply to Walla Walla, Mr. Ankeny's home county.' "He replied: 'Yes, Mr. Sweeney financed the campaign there also.' "He suggested, however, (hat if j Tom Sammons and I would approach ; Judge Linn of Thurston county and | get him to throw out a hint that he i would call a grand jury, that he, ! Crocker, would guarantee that : Sweeney and Stevenson would close headquarters and leave Olympia at once. 1 talked with Sammons and we both concluded it would be a dan gerous game. I also reported Crock er's suggestion to Mr. Piles. 1 went . again to Crocker and poinled out to him that Mr. Wilson had fifteen voles; that Files had only five; that unless he gave us the vote of Walla i Walla county, Files, under a written agreement, suggested by certain bus iness men and the hold-over senators from King county, would have to withdraw in favor of Mr. Wilson. lie replied that he was powerless; that Mr. Sweeney owned the vote abso ! lutely. "I can produce the affidavit of rep i utiible witnesses to whom Crocker said not twelve hours before Mr. , Sweeney turned over the vote: 'Piles ■will never be United States senator.' j I have it over his own signature, wherein he writes: 'Piles will never ibe senator.' These are the reasons I j believe there was no agreement of the j nature the public is Id to think exists. "Did I suspect Crocker of double j dealing? Not until some time after 1 1he Tacoma convention. On two or I three occasions during the 1904 cam i paign I happened to be in the inter nal revenue office at Tacoma. I did not resign from the internal revenue service to go into the Piles campaign until December, 1904. I saw Crocker and Stevenson go down into the vaults. There could be only one ob ject in these visits to the vaults— money. Mr. Stevenson at that time was managing Senator Turner's cam paign for governor, and he was open ly and aggressively fighting Mr. Piles. In answer to my questions Crocker said: 'Leave George to me; I'll fix him when the time comes.' Whatever else can be said against Stevenson, he cannot be charged with double-dealing. If he is fighting you, you will find liim doing so openly. In saying this, I am not to be understood as indorsing his methods. What I mean is, he will not play at double dealing. "I do not know what Mr. Piles' at titude will be. I know he is person ally a warm friend of Mr. Ankeny, ABERDEEN HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 25. 1908.

J. WOLFF'S, Aberdeen's Largest and Best Store as I am. He may look upon the situ ation as I and many of Ankeny's friends do; that the only way to save the senior senator from further hu miliation and disgrace is to leave him home. "i presume I'll be accused by the gentlemen who are sitting up nights with King county's honor' of being in a plot with John r,. Wilson to un dermine Piles.' Here is John L.'s la test effort in the 'undermining busi ness,' and Mr. Payne handed the re porter a couple of newspaper clip pings: " 'King county already has a sena tor and congressman, and the elec tion of a governor from King coun ty would jeopardize one or both of these positions.'—From Wilson's let ter declining to be a candidate for governor.' "The P.-1., which the federal of fice holders say must be driven out of business because it is owned by Wil son, commenting on the above, says: " 'He makes clear the proposition that for King county to bring for ward a candidate for the governor ship at this time would be to jeo pardize and perhaps deprive this county of its representation in the halls of congress, where it now has a senator and a congressman. The second reason is one of public policy and should, it seems to us, be con clusive not only to Mr. Wilson, but to any resident of King county.' "If Mr. Piles is defeated, two years from now, his real friends will know who is to blame—-Ankeny's manager, j Crocker, or Mr. Wilson." Badly Sprained Ankle Cured. Three years ago our daughter sprained her ankle and had been suf fering terribly for two days and nights—had not slept a minute. Mr. Stallings, of Butler, Tenn., told us of Chamberlain's Pain Balm. We went to the store that night and got a bottle of it and bathed her ankle two or three times and ehe went to sleep and had a good night's rest. The next morning she was much be t ter and in a short time could walk around and had no more - with her ankle.—E. M. I umitt, Hampton, Tenn. 25 and *°?" f cent sizes for sale by Evans Drug Co.

A Fir Tree on Puget Sound Yields Nearly Twenty-five Thousand Feet of Lumber. Records for the amount of lumber sawed from one tree, from one acre and from ten acres have been shat tered this spring by the cut made from a ten acre tract of land on the north shores of Puget Sound. The log scale shows that 5,100,766 feet was obtained from 561 trees in a top-acre tract, or an average of 510,- 076 feet to the acre. - The figures of this remarkable cut were compiled by Robert 13. Allen, editor of the Pacific Lumber Trade Journal. "This cut is the most remarkable in the history of the business," said Mr. Allen. "The record was accur ately kept by the mill company con ducting the logging operations, and the record acre of tUe ten yielded just 585,048 feet, as compared with a normal average of 25,000 feet to the acre. On this particular acre a single fir tree scaled 22,14 5 feet, or "MADE IN ABERDEEN" Kirst Class Brick: Always Ready for Delivery Warranted Equal to Any Shipped in from Abroad Examine These Brick and Get Prices Before Ordering o Aberdeen Brick Works A J pf^r art less than 3,000 feet under the aver age yield of an entire acre of ground. The average yield per acre of this en tire ten acres is greater than that of any acre that 1 ever heard of, and is far larger than ■any recorded acre. On this one acre the average is so extraordinary as to seem almost a natural impossibility." The second largest fir tree on this particular acre scaled 18,200 feet, a third 17,000 feet and a fourth 16,- 895 feet. Four other trees totaled 48,128 feet, or an average of more than 12,000 feet to the tree, while the others ranged down to the small est, which yielded nearly 4,000 feet. The seventy-four fir trees on this acre yielded a total of 568,518 feet of lumber, or an average of 7,683 feet to the tree. In addition to the firs there were eleven hemlock trees, which totaled 11,144 weet, or an av erage of 1,013 feet each. Five ce dar trees totaled 5,386 and averaged 1,077 feet. The largest hemlock scaled 3,032 feet and the largest cedar 2,180 feet. The average for the entire acre was 6,500 feet to the tree. Sore Nipples.
