MOVE FLETCHER MILL.
Big Body of Timber Secured Near
Elgin and Eig Plant Will be
Moved This Fall.
W. H. Fletcher, who has operated
a sawmill in Umatilla county, in the
vicinity of Weston Mountain, for 15
years, has recently purchased a large
body of timber land, consisting of 940
acres, on the main road leading from
W'eston to Elgin, and will move his
mill from the present site at Cold
Springs to this new location, six
miles distant, says the East Orego
A new water power plant will be
installed for the purpose of running
the electric light plant for the works,
but the sawmill will be operated by
steam. The capacity of the mil] will
be about 20,000 feet per day, and the
box factory, which forms one of the
main features of the mill wil have a
capacity of 5000 boxes a day.
The box factory is operated alto
gether on the night shift, and sup
plies all the surrounding fruit
districts. The timber used in the
construction of fruit boxes is princi
pally white fir and spruce, which is
very light and flexible, and makes a
fine quality of box.
The Fletcher mill has been operat
ed in the site just vacated, about six
years, and was driven to seek a new
location by the formation of the for
est reserve. The land just acquired
is covered with a growth of good tim
ber of all varieties, and will last for
five or six years, if the capacity of
the mill is not increased.

perfection itself, and some wonderful
stage effects are promised.
